A decade ago he was the invincible king of the superhero franchises. Sam Raimi's first two "Spider-Man" films not only scored critical acclaim but around $400 million domestic and $400 million worldwide each in box-office revenue.
Today, things have changed. Since its reboot in 2012, the two Marc Webb-directed "Amazing Spider-Man" films have performed slightly better overseas, taking in around $500 million each. However, domestically they've slumped - the first nabbing $250 million and the recent second just $200 million. Reviews have also taken a dive - the first scoring a mixed/slightly positive and the second a mixed/negative reception.
In a recent interview with THR, Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal says "I would have liked Amazing Spider-Man 2 to make a lot more money for us than it did, but it made a lot of money for us anyway". In fact their source says the film's final tally was $100 million below internal predictions, »

Marvel has revealed two more Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art posters, this time featuring Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Chris Evans as Captain America as they battle Ultron's army... or at least I think that's the situation. Something about Vibranium... I think... rightc Marvel has a big panel coming up at Comic Con this year where we're likely to hear a ton of new film titles announced, especially since we are now up to eight untitled release dates the studio has set up. As for Avengers: Age of Ultron, that hits theaters on May 1, 2015 and it's expected The Avengers 3 will hit theaters on the newly dated May 4, 2018, a slot Marvel just snatched up that previously belonged to The Amazing Spider-Man 4, get more on all that right here. »

We're now getting three Marvel movies in 2018, it's been confirmed...
Over the weekend, Marvel confirmed the release date of five new movies, even though it didn't announce just what those films were going to be. Some details may well be forthcoming at Comic-Con this weekend. However, it's not done with its near future schedule, as it's now confirmed yet another release for 2018.
It's taken the May 4th 2018 date that had been held by Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 4, and that means that there will now be three Marvel films appearing in 2018. That's adding to the three scheduled for 2017. We wonder if this is a permanent ramping up of Marvel's output.
The dates it's got set for its projects now are as follows...
1st May 2015: Avengers: Age Of Ultron
17 July 2015: Ant-Man
6 May 2016: Captain America 3
8 July 2016: tbc, but expected to be Doctor Strange
5 May 2017: tbc
Sony's decision to knock The Amazing Spider-Man 3 back to 2018 does not mean it's rebooting the series, it's been confirmed...
Yesterday's announcement from Sony that it's delaying The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years to 2018, slotting Sinister Six in 2016 instead, has led to some speculation that it's planning another reboot of sorts of the series. As it turns out, that's not likely to be the case.
The Hollywood Reporter has a piece which declares that "privately, Sony admits it is seeking to refresh the brand, but has no major overhaul plans". Director Marc Webb remains attached too, and is expected to complete his trilogy of Spider-Man movies.
Yet there's clearly a problem, with a Sony source apparently saying that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 "fell $100m below internal predictions" when its box office takings topped out just north of $700m.
That said, it's been noted that competition was tougher than expected, »
Earlier today, Sony Pictures did what many were expecting them to do for months, shift The Amazing Spider-Man 3 into an undetermined 2018 release date slot, while moving The Sinister Six into 2016. Many wondered if this move suggested the studio was planning to scrap The Amazing Spider-Man 3 altogether, and reboot the franchise once again. However, at story from The Hollywood Reporter claims that, while the studio does want to "freshen" the brand, a reboot is not in play, with Marc Webb returning to complete his trilogy with The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
"Privately, Sony admits it is seeking to freshen the brand but has no major overhaul plans, with Webb expected to return to complete the trilogy (as Sam Raimi did with the first three films)."
Marvel Studios has added a third untitled film to its 2018 roster mere hours after Sony vacated the slot with The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which now has no release time frame after The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was pushed back into 2017.
The May 4, 2018 date that Marvel snapped up will most likely be utilized for The Avengers 3 following the same pattern that Marvel has employed for the first two Avengers films. It marks the sixth untitled film that Marvel has added to its future release date within the past week.
Marvel's Cinematic Phase 2 has two films left with Guardians of the Galaxy arriving on August 1 followed by The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015. Phase 3 will begin with Ant-Man on July 17, 2015.
Here's the complete Marvel Studios announced slate of release dates through early 2019:
Aug 1: Guardians of the Galaxy
May 1: The Avengers: Age of Ultron
July 17: Ant-Man
May 6: Captain America 3 »
The image features Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, while we also get a look at the Ant-Man costume in its full glory. It’s similar to the one spotted in the test footage shown at Comic-Con last year, but with a few small changes. Perhaps the best part about it is that we get to see Ant-Man on board an ant!
As this is concept art, there may of course be a few changes between now and when the movie is actually released next July. Edgar Wright was originally set to direct before “creative differences” led to Marvel seeking out a new writer in Adam McKay (Anchorman) and »

Just hours after Sony Pictures pushed The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to 2018 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 to an unspecified date, Marvel Studios has announced that another mystery movie, Untitled Marvel Project 2018, will be released on May 4, 2018, The Amazing Spider-Man 4's former release date. Take a look at Marvel's announcement via Twitter below, then read on for more information.

Marvel's Kevin Feige revealed earlier this week that he wants Marvel Studios to put out two films per year, one sequel to an existing property and one new adventure, but it seems they're going even bigger than that. The studio announced five new release dates last week, which reveals the studio will release three movies apiece in 2017 and 2018.

We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

The Amazing Spider-Man spin-off film Sinister Six has been given a release date.
Columbia Pictures announced during San Diego Comic-Con that the movie will be released on November 11, 2016.
Sinister Six will focus on the six super villains from the Marvel universe, and be directed by Drew Goddard.
It has also been announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be released in 2018.
"There is the idea that other movies are going to emerge from this universe, like the Sinister Six and Venom," he explained, "and we wanted to acknowledge and build a foundation for that."

The future timeline of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and the planned spin-offs has been uncertain since the second film in the franchise didn't do quite as well as Sony Pictures hoped. Originally, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was dated for June 10th, 2016, and the studio was figuring when they wanted to throw the spin-offs into theaters after that. But now Sony has decided to mix things up by setting The Sinister Six for release on November 11th, 2016 and then following it up with the third film in the primary franchise (likely summer) in 2018. But the vacated summer 2016 date won't be empty. Read on! Sony has decided to fill the June 10th, 2016 with their video game adventure adaptation of Uncharted, directed by King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Of course, the studio is still trying to figure out who will play the main character of Nathan Drake. »

Anyone wondering what would happen with The Amazing Spider-Man franchise now has their answer. Sony has moved The Amazing Spider-Man 3 back two years to 2018, while set the Drew Goddard‘s Sinister Six release date for November 11, 2016. Variety broke the news. There’s no specific 2018 date set for Amazing Spider-Man 3, but it won’t be the […]

The great Spider-Man experiment continues! Sony isn't going to go down swinging in regards to the under-performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Nope, they're reloading and diversifying, re-writing their entire release schedule to spotlight The Sinister Six. Thank you for reading CinemaBlend, Sony. Your gift bag is in the mail. Via Deadline, Sony has announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has fled 2016, giving way to The Sinister Six, which will bow on November 11th, 2016. Following the villain team-up, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will debut in 2018 . no date is specified, though it will probably occupy the May 4th, 2018 slot reserved for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which will... vanish out of thin air, apparently. Clearly, Sony's original wishes for a Spider-Man movie every year will not come to fruition. What this means is that, with Sinister Six taking the place of a Spider-Man movie, it's likely going to Become a Spider-Man movie, with »
After a lot of speculation about the fate of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and if it is being delayed, the studio has officially announced release dates for the next two chapters in this continuing saga. The Sinister Six will arrive first, debuting on November 11, 2016. This will be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 sometime in 2018.
Drew Goddard will write and direct The Sinister Six, pushing the franchise in a new direction after The Amazing Spider-Man 2's release this past summer. It will team-up a number of villains from the Marvel Comics, and expand the story that is already in play.
The video game Uncharted will take The Amazing Spider-Man 3's old release date of »
On the eve of Comic Con, Sony Pictures has drastically shuffled about its dates for both the next "The Amazing Spider-Man" and its proposed "Sinister Six" spin-off movie.
"The Sinister Six" is now set to debut on November 11th 2016. The company is reportedly high on Drew Goddard's take on the material which remains only a "rough script at this point". Goddard is set to write and direct the project.
The real news though is "The Amazing Spider-Man" films. The third one was originally slated for June 10th 2016 while the fourth was for May 4th 2018. That's out the window now.
Instead, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" has been shifted to a generalised Summer 2018 release - a whopping delay of two years. The extra time will hopefully be enough for the filmmakers to hammer out issues and properly develop the next entry following the poor critical reception and underwhelming box-office of the second. »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

Looking at Kevin Feige’s track record with the likes of Captain America and Thor (both of which have now become two of their most popular franchises), it seems that both of the releases listed above will do very well, and could potentially open the door to a whole new type of comic book movie.
Some of the possibilities we’ve covered here are risky because of past failures or how obscure the character is, while others are controversial due to their nature or the type of themes and issues they tackle. However, regardless of whether the rights are held by Marvel, Fox or Sony, they all have potential.
Which of these would you »
