Why We Never Got Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Spin-Offs

Why We Never Got Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Spin-Offs
This article contains Spider-Man: No Way Home spoilers.

On another Earth, somewhere in the countless strands of reality in the multiverse, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opened in theaters on June 10, 2016.

The film would have followed 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and might well have marked the end of both Andrew Garfield’s tenure in the suit and director Marc Webb’s behind the camera.

But while Garfield and Webb did both exit the Spider-Man franchise–at least until now for Garfield–it was instead the prior film that proved to be both men’s swan song. As for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, despite an ever-shifting array of writers, ideas and release dates, it never happened–much to the possible relief of an increasingly frustrated but ultimately grateful fan base.

The Not-So-Amazing Spider-Man 2

The reasons why we never got The Amazing Spider-Man 3 are many, but perhaps the primary factor, as it always seems to be in Hollywood,

Spider-Man Movie Villains Ranked from Worst to Best

Spider-Man Movie Villains Ranked from Worst to Best
Your hero is only as good as your villain. That conventional bit of Hollywood wisdom has been disproved by many a superhero movie in the last decade. Nevertheless, there’s still something exciting about a comic book movie villain who does work. The kind that offers a performance as big and exciting as anything the do-gooders get up to.

And in the realm of superhero movies, few characters have had a stronger roster of such baddies than the Spider-Man movies. Despite existing across three continuities, and three vastly different interpretations of the Web-Head, popularity for the best of Spidey’s rogues can last for years—or even decades—after their first appearance. Just look at the unbridled anticipation about Alfred Molina returning to the role of Doctor Octopus for proof.

Yet with so many foxes in the Spidey henhouse, the question becomes who is the best Spider-Man movie villain—as

Does Spider-Man Have Room in the MCU for Harry Osborn?

Does Spider-Man Have Room in the MCU for Harry Osborn?
Spider-Man: No Way Home may already have its handprint set in Marvel Cinematic Universe cement in a yet-to-be-revealed manner, but speculation about the Wall-Crawler’s future films is already rampant, with plans for a new trilogy recently confirmed. Thus, as star Tom Holland touts the film as “the end of an era,” fans are fixating on the idea of Peter Parker’s famous pal, Harry Osborn, making an MCU debut. Intriguingly, Holland and co-stars Zendaya and Jacob Batalon are backing the idea of Timothée Chalamet for the coveted role.

As the main trio of the Sony Pictures-produced Spider-Man MCU films collectively known as the Homecoming Trilogy, Holland’s Peter Parker, Zendaya’s Michelle Jones/Mj and Batalon’s Ned Leeds conjure a youthful, energetic dynamic that widely resonates with audiences. Yet, said dynamic is essentially a pastiche of personalities adapted from various iterations of Peter’s circle of friends

Spider-Man: No Way Home – New Trailer Breakdown and Marvel Easter Eggs Analysis

Spider-Man: No Way Home – New Trailer Breakdown and Marvel Easter Eggs Analysis
Has there been a more anticipated trailer than this new one for Spider-Man: No Way Home over the last few years? We’re having serious trouble thinking of one. The secrecy surrounding this movie has sent speculation (and some genuine leaks) to a fever pitch almost unheard of in recent times. And both Sony and Marvel Studios have done their level best to lean in to the fan anticipation in every possible way, with teases, secrecy, more teases, outright denial, and a marketing campaign that has left absolutely nothing to chance.

But the new (and final) Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer is finally here. And it is perhaps even bigger, wilder, and weirder than anyone expected. And to be honest, we were expecting quite a lot right out of the gate, so that’s saying something.

Michael Shannon, Emilia Clarke Tubthump for Joseph McCarthy Biopic at AFM (Exclusive)
In a presentation delivered to buyers this week during the virtual American Film Market, the stars of biopic “McCarthy,” Michael Shannon and Emilia Clarke, as well as its director Václav Marhoul and screenwriter Tom O’Connor, explained why the story of the venomous demagogue Joseph McCarthy had to be told now.

The film, now in development, follows McCarthy’s journey from being an ambitious Republican Senator to the most powerful and feared man in the U.S., culminating in a dramatic and absolute ruin.

“Given that McCarthy is such a darkly iconic figure in our history I was shocked that there had never been a film made about him,” O’Connor said.

O’Connor relied on research to tease out details of McCarthy’s origin story, such as his fascination with Adolf Hitler. “Being from Wisconsin, with a heavy German population, McCarthy had been given a copy of ‘Mein Kampf’ by one of his supporters,

Set in a near future where AI is all the rage and nature is becoming a distant memory, the story revolves around Rachel (Clarke) and Alvy (Ejiofor), a New York couple who are ready to take their relationship to the next level and start a family. Rachel’s work gives them a chance to use a new tool developed by a tech giant, Pegasus, which offers couples the opportunity to share pregnancy on a more equal footing via detachable artificial wombs, or pods. Alvy, a botanist and devoted purist, has doubts, but his love for Rachel prompts him to take a leap of faith.

Michael Shannon, Emilia Clarke, Dane DeHaan Starring in Joe McCarthy Biopic

Michael Shannon, Emilia Clarke, Dane DeHaan Starring in Joe McCarthy Biopic
Michael Shannon will portray U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy, a venal politician so evil he spawned his own -ism, in the aptly named film “McCarthy.”

The two-time Oscar nominee, known for off-beat performances in the likes of “Nocturnal Animals” and “Revolutionary Road,” will try to find the dark heart of the demagogue who used show-trials and red-baiting to rise to power on a wave of anti-communist hysteria. He will be aided in that effort by director Václav Marhoul and a cast that includes “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke and “The Place Beyond the Pine’s” Dane DeHaan. Scoot McNairy rounds out the ensemble.

“McCarthy” charts the rise and fall of notorious and powerful senator and his enablers, a group that includes his politically ambitious wife Jean Kerr (Clarke), his ruthless young lawyer Roy Cohn (DeHaan) and his trusted friend and colleague Ray Kiermas (McNairy). Long may they live in infamy.

‘Chronicle 2’ Will Be Female-Led Sequel Set 10 Years After the Original

‘Chronicle 2’ Will Be Female-Led Sequel Set 10 Years After the Original
Josh Trank’s crafty 2012 found-footage, science-fiction thriller “Chronicle” was one of the most admired studio movies of that year, making more than 10 times its budget back to the tune of $126 million, and scoring strong reviews. The film about high school seniors who acquire telekinetic powers almost immediately sparked rumors of a sequel at 20th Century, and while that looked mostly dead for awhile, producer John Davis recently confirmed to Forbes (via Screen Crush) that a sequel is in the works.

But, in a twist on the male-driven original, this sequel will be told from the female perspective.

“‘Chronicle’ was literally the best return on investment, any of my movies ever made. ‘Chronicle’ we did for $12 million, and it grossed $126.64 million worldwide,” said John Davis, who also serves as a producer on the recent Disney film “Jungle Cruise.”

‘Chronicle 2’ In Development: Set 10 Years Later With Female College Students Getting Superpowers
It’s been nearly 10 years since Josh Trank‘s “Chronicle,” the sci-fi hit that launched his career, now-disgraced screenwriter Max Landis‘ career and boosted the viability of actors like Dane DeHaan and Micheal B. Jordan. “Chronicle” sequel ideas were thrown around at the time and discussed over the years, but no film materialized. The success of the film quickly shot Trank onto the A-list, and its success convinced the studio to allow him to reboot “Fantastic Four” and landed him a “Star Wars” film; the latter of which he would eventually exit following allegations of troublesome behavior on the set of the aforementioned Marvel movie.

Lisey's Story Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Lisey's Story

Lisey's Story Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Lisey's Story
Who says Stephen King can't write a love story?

Lisey's Story Season 1 Episode 8 proved otherwise.

The teleplay by King based on his favorite novel was, first and foremost, about the doomed romance between Scott and Lisey Landon.

But while that was the primary relationship in this limited series, the bond between Lisey and her sisters Amanda and Darla also was front and center as well. King was supposedly inspired by observing his wife Tabitha and her sisters.

Before any of the many loose ends could be tied up, however, a major irritant needed to be dealt with.

Yup. Jim Dooley.

Dane DeHaan has brought the necessary menace that any Stephen King work requires. He had been a major component of Lisey's Story thus far.

That's why it was a disappointment that he was dispatched so early in the finale. But at least he got a memorable death out of the deal.
