Updated: New info on Marvel/Sony Spidey deal; Civil War, spinoffs & more

02.10.2015

Captain America: Civil War Spider-Man

Update: THR has some additional details on Marvel's Spider-Man deal with Sony worth checking out. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad have apparently "been downgraded to executive producers, with no real say in the creative direction of the franchise." Sources have also told the site that director Marc Webb won't be back for the next Spider-Man movie, which won't be an origin story, according to WSJ's Ben Fritz.

But the biggest thing from THR's report is Marvel still might eventually try to purchase the Spider-Man film rights, or (if it becomes an option) buy Sony. Thoughts?

One knowledgeable source sees the move as a first step to Marvel reacquiring the rights to Spider-Man down the road, while another believes Disney is positioning itself to acquire Sony should it ever become available.

Original: New details have emerged about Spider-Man joining Marvel's Cinematic Universe, as well as what's going on with Sony's planned VENOM and THE SINISTER SIX spinoffs.

We'll start with the WSJ, who has confirmed Spider-Man will appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. The character plays a major role in the Civil War comic series, so this doesn't come as a huge surprise.

The site goes on to say Sony "will rethink its approach to Sinister Six, which remains in development, in light of the new agreement with Marvel." Variety has heard the same thing, and they add the studio is also moving forward with the Venom movie, and "a film that features female characters in the “Spider-Man” universe," something we learned was in the works back in August.

Andrew Garfield is out as Spider-Man, and sources have told Variety Sony "is looking to go back to Spidey’s roots and put the character back in high school, which would require it to cast a younger actor." Hopefully this doesn't mean we'll be getting a third origin story.

One last interesting note from Variety's report: Although Marvel's Kevin Feige is involved with the new Spider-Man movie, sources say "he currently is not expected to be creatively involved with the spinoffs."

So there's the latest on Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man plans. Of course I'm excited about the web-slinger finally appearing on the same screen as Captain America and Iron Man in a live-action film, however I am still concerned about Sony's spinoff films. And not to be a negative nancy, but just because Marvel and Sony are working together on projects featuring Spider-Man doesn't mean they won't f*ck things up with the character. Marvel hasn't had an outright terrible movie yet, and I really hope their first one won't be SPIDER-MAN.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR will be in theaters on May 6, 2016, and Sony/Marvel's SPIDER-MAN is scheduled to open on July 28, 2017.

Without Spider-Man Sony is nothing really, I mean sure they have MIB & the Jump Street series, but can those save it, I seriously doubt it. Best case scenario is for Disney/Marvel to eventually buy Sony & maintain total control of Spider-Man.There is also no need or point to those spinoff movies anyway so they should just drop them. Oh & Avi Arad can go fuck himself.

Alright...

So, from my understanding, Sony's SINISTER SIX, VENOM, and this female Spider-Man characters movie will NOT be a part of Marvel/Disney/Feige's cinematic universe, but will continue to be a part of the universe created in The Amazing Spider-Man films? I hope thats the case. Because I dont trust Sony to keep the continuity going... AND because I think those films will fail.
Sony should scrap all those projects, because having 2 Spider-Man universes would confuse the living shit out of

I also wonder how Feige and Marvel will go about Spidey's villains. I mean, you gotta assume that if Sony goes ahead with their SINISTER SIX film, they wouldnt want any of those 6 villains to appear in the MCU.. I personally hope they allow Venom to be Spidey's first villain. Similar in powers/abilities - which falls in line with what Marvel likes to do with their films.

sources have told Variety Sony "is looking to go back to Spidey’s roots and put the character back in high school, which would require it to cast a younger actor."

And with that part of the story my interest in Spidey coming to the MCU is now gone. I mean really? Again!? No one wants to see that. People were already turned off by ASM because it started over so soon after Raimi's trilogy and they want to start over yet again just because?

And so, the ultimate fate of Peter Parker's parents will forever be one of Hollywood's greatest unsolved mysteries.
I would have preferred that Peter eventually found out that they are secretly alive and left to develop a top secret gigantic super robot in space which will be given to their son on his 25th birthday, but sadly that is not to be.

i think the thing fandom should be aware of is that SONY IS NOT GIVING THE RIGHTS BACK TO MARVEL. It's just an agreement to let him appear in a Marvel production and to co produce the next Spidey film. But Sony keeps ownership and will distribute the solo films and have final script approval. They could use his appearance to get the rub of being a Marvel movie character to restart their own franchises.
Ever wonder why we've not seen a new Hulk solo film scheduled? One reason is Universal kept

Given that the Marvel cinematic universe will always be very different to the Marvel comic universe, I'm not sure it matters if Spidey is young for this story. Have him as a young hero who's popular with young people and other heroes but capable of screwing up and I'd still buy him as a valuable pawn for Stark in the Civil War storyline - someone Stark can use to make his pro-registration point, and unwittingly proving Cap's point about the dangers of being unmasked as a hero in government

I'd rather have a slightly younger Spidey for the potential of future Spider-Man movies. DC made their choice to go with an older, grizzled Batman - we'll see how that pays off - but I think a younger Spidey is fine.

I agree with you. Personally I'd like Spidey to be young in this because he'd be in an age group of his own. Most of the Avengers in the MCU are the same age - with maybe Banner and Stark a bit older. But Parker being young would add an interesting dynamic to the group interactions.

With regard to the update, if they follow Sony's Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, they can still do high school without an origin story (which had Uncle Ben already dead - the time frame in the cartoon series seemed somewhat too short - only a whole summer). Like the animated series, how he gained powers can always be addressed in flashbacks in future solo movies including Uncle Ben's role.

Dylan O' Brien

Dylan O' Brien would be my first choice to play Spider-Man and Sam Raimi should be brought in as Executive Producer or at least to help in some degree. I definitely think they should have him out of high school though, I mean if he will be in Civil War any then he would have to be somewhat a veteran or well known hero. Plus the origin story can be told without having a whole movie to tell it, it can be easily expanded throughout how ever many Spider-Man films they plan to make.

"is looking to go back to Spidey’s roots and put the character back in high school, which would require it to cast a younger actor." Go back to high school? He was just in high school! in the last spider-man movie that came out just this past summer he graduated in the beginning of the movie. They don't need to cast a younger actor. In the civil war storyline Spiderman is a science teacher so he's at least 30 years old so if anything they need to cast older. I just hope they don't mess this

So it's still a Sony franchise, but Marvel gets to use the character? Hmmm. Very mixed feelings over this deal. While it'll be good to see Spidey running with the Avengers, the fact that the creative geniuses at Sony are gonna be fucking with the MCU is a bitter pill to swallow.

Pretty easy to figure out they were positioning him to be in the Civil War movie. But Marvel/Disney still looking to buy back Spiderman rights or even Sony itself is something I didn't expect to hear. Disney seems to be giving Marvel whatever it wants since its currently the biggest cash cow it has. But outright maybe buying Sony, wow those are some big balls lol. I'm all for it, as long as Marvel owns Spiderman again, or at least creative control over the character.

Looking forward to seeing spidey with the Avengers...I do wonder which teenage actor will be chosen for the role but I have faith in Marvel as they have done a great job with casting other characters so far....I also wonder what will come of xmen crossover that was supposed to happen as you recall Mystique was at the end of the last spiderman.

I think with Logan Lerman, Nick Robinson and Anton Yelchin they have a few reasonable choices. If anything, Nick Robinson looks too young and I think that could rule him out. Anton Yelchin looks a lot like Andrew Garfield but then that begs the question why they can't just keep making movies with Andrew Garfield. Logan Lerman is an inspired choice because he reminds me of Tobey Macguire. It all depends on what Marvel is going for: unless they are planning to scrap The Amazing Spider-Man and

Logan Lerman is an inspired choice because he reminds me of Tobey Macguire. It all depends on what Marvel is going for: unless they are planning to scrap The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel then why fire Andrew Garfield? And if they are scrapping The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel and they aren't going to retell the origin then people are going to wonder which version of the origin is canon in the new continuity, Raimi's or Webb's.

Note that without retelling the origin they aren't doing a complete reboot: it's more like when they recast James Bond; Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan were all part of the same continuity. They all had the same Q, for example. It wasn't until Casino Royale came along that they rebooted everything.

Unfortunately, I don't think Sony is going to scrap the continuity they established with The Amazing Spider-Man: they seem to be sticking to their guns regarding creative control and want to go ahead with Sinister Six, Venom and Black Cat movies. It would be too confusing to ask people to ignore the most recent Spider-Man movies. I guess that means we will have a new Doc Ock.

Maybe they can tie the Sinister Six movie in with Marvel Phase 3. Doc Ock, the Lizard, Electro, the Vulture, the Green Goblin and Sandman can be established villains who are recruited into the Avengers Initiative. Iron Man could cameo in the Sinister Six movie. Spider-Man would also do a cameo: he would tell Tony Stark that he doesn't like the idea of the man who killed Gwen Stacy being released. Tony Stark would tell him that he's not being released, that they are being used to hunt down other potential threats. They may be able to work that into the Civil War narrative.

I'm not sure about the female-driven Spider-Man universe movie or the Venom movie. I suspect that they could re-introduce Venom as the big bad in the Sinister Six movie but then if they gave Venom his own movie who would he be fighting? Carnage? I don't know how well that would work. And I don't see the point of a female-driven Spider-Man universe movie that would be a direct sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 if they are going to cast a younger actor as Spider-Man.

And frankly if their asses suffer I am fine with that. They rushed the new FF4 into production solely to spite Marvel and not lose the rights. They asked Marvel for more time, Marvel said ok if you allow us to use Silver Surfer and Galactus we'll extend your license for the time you want, Fox said no. They deserve to lose a boat load and if it costs higher ups int he company their job, good.

I'm excited to have Spidey in the MCU, but please DO NOT re-tell his origin or have him as a high school student. As he's integral to the Civil War storyline and if they follow the comics, then he should be an established character who has been around in this universe for a few years, so early to mid 20's. And personally, I think Garfield should keep going as Parker/Spidey; he was good in the role, he can't be blamed for ASM2.

All awesome news, just PLEASE do not give us another origin story. You can introduce him in Civil War where he is already a common tabloid topic in NYC. Make it so that he's already fully Spider-Man, but we (and the characters in Civil War) are just meeting him for the first time. Similar to how the Joker is in full swing at the start of The Dark Knight.

I wanted a kid who despite his power doesn't appreciate what he is... and looks up to the so called real heroes as something he wants to be or be like - always in awe of them. One of my favourite stories from the comic books was the two parter with Firelord - despite laying the beat down to a herald of Galactus, Spidey still didn't quite get it...that he had beaten him. Always loved the pat on the back from Captain America or Hercules comments about Spidey (in the Avengers comic book that briefly covered the aftermath of the fight). That's Parker/Spidey in a nutshell. As for the origin story... well Sony did produce one great piece of work with Spider-Man and it was their Spectacular Spider-Man animated series which had Spidey, as a high school student but with no origin story other than a brief flashback in a later episode - so it can be done and it can work.

People keep talking shit about the Spider-Man spinoff films, but I'm actually looking forward to those more than I'm looking forward to the next Spidey film. I've already seen Spider-Man in like 5 movies already, so I'm not exactly clamoring to see him again. However I've never seen a Black Cat / Venom movie before, so I'm really excited about those movies. Also, Kevin Feige will probably be involved in all of Sony's spinoff films in some capacity, so relax everyone.

I would expect a casting announcement very soon. Marvel has been planning this for a long time, they already have Black Panther cast and his costume fully designed, I image they are well underway in pre production on Civil War and absolutely ready to get someone into a costume fitting for Spidey.

I'm still excited to see the Sinister Six, Venom, and the Black Cat movies. I know that Feige won't be directly involved in those projects , but I'm sure his fingerprints will be all over those films. He's definitely going to give Amy Pascsl input on how to make those spinoff films great.

Not sure I'm that excited about this news, at least not as much as everyone else. I feel the MCU strengths have been giving us films for new characters who haven't had been on screen before. Spider-man has had 5 films, and a couple of them were great. I know he's a big part of civil war, but having it be an introduction to another reboot seems messy. The fact that Sony is going ahead with the spin-offs, which no one seems interested in, makes it seem like not a lot is changing. What it comes

What it comes down to is another reboot, with a spider-man who will appear in a few MCU films. Oh well, if it sucks it'll probably be rebooted a 4th time in a few years anyway.

I, personally, really like Garfield in the role and think he was let down by the film. I'm so happy Spider-man is now MCU bound though.

Haven't a clue who they should cast though. Taron Edgerton? Elsewhere there are suggestions of Logan Lerman but I find him too bland.

What about Nick Robinson or Thomas Sangster?

Matthew Vaughn directing a Spider-Man film would work nicely he has the sarcasm down. I have only seen Taron Edgerton in the trailers for Kingsman so I don't know how good he is but I agree with many of you here that Yelchin, and Dylan Obrien would be good. I also think Josh Hucherson or Jack O'Connell would be good. Just not Logan Lerman I find him very uncharismatic and dull.

People are suggesting actors who just don't look like Peter Parker. Peter Parker is supposed to look nerdy: he is not supposed to look like an action star or a model. It's difficult to find the right actor because most actors come up through Hollywood after doing daytime dramas, romantic comedies and movies and/or TV shows for young adults. It's the same problem when you are casting Superman: you have to be able to believe him as Clark Kent. Basically, if you draw glasses on an actor and he

Basically, if you draw glasses on an actor and he still looks like someone who could @#$% you up then he's not right for the role.

I agree with you martinphillips, there are a lot of suggestion of just... Well anybody.

I put forward Edgerton because, having seen Kingsman he's fit enough for the role and has a likeable quality that Spidey needs. It was his 'nerd' side that was the big question mark and yeah does he really look like Peter Parker. Of the actors I know he's my favourite....

I didn't know Dylan O'Brien - but having googled him, he certainly looks the part.

"is looking to go back to Spidey’s roots and put the character back in high school, which would require it to cast a younger actor."

This is kind of disappointing. I was really hoping we would get an older Spider Man (at least in College) instead of throwing the character back in High School. I want to see an older Spider Man who is battle worn already and has had experience with fighting.

And if his first appearance is indeed in Civil War, then one of the extra scenes in the credits

And if his first appearance is indeed in Civil War, then one of the extra scenes in the credits for Age of Ultron has to reference and/or forshadow Spider Man entering the MCU. Just imagine that tease and cliffhanger.

And if they are going for a younger Peter Parker/Spider Man, then my pick is for Anton Yelchin. Has the chops, right nerdy look, and is a good age where he could still pass for High School somewhat.

Could go for him. He also doesent really seem to get a lot of notable work either.

Agreed. Though, to be fair, it looks like the artist appreciated Captain America's ass too :)
