Sony to release new Spidey movies every year; Marc Webb confirmed for ASM 3

02.25.2014

For an article about Sony relying too much on their Spider-Man franchise, Variety spoke with Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal, who without a hint of irony, revealed there's going to be a new Spidey movie every year. This isn't too surprising since a third and fourth film have already been announced (as well as VENOM and SINISTER SIX movies) but I don't think many of us expected a new film to be released every year.

“We are expanding the ‘Spider-Man’ universe into ‘The Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom,’ so that we have ‘Spider-Man’ movies every year."

Maybe she's exaggerating a bit, however considering how many films have been released by Marvel, it would make sense for Sony to follow a similar path. The third and fourth SPIDER-MAN movies are scheduled to hit theaters in 2016 and 2018, so there's a chance VENOM or SINISTER SIX could be released in 2017, and Sony is probably developing other films as well featuring characters from Spider-Man's cinematic universe.

Also in Variety's article comes word Marc Webb will be back to direct THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3. Like this morning's news about Joss Whedon and THE AVENGERS 3, many of us assumed Marc Webb would return, but now we know for sure he'll be back for the third movie.

We've known for a while now Sony has huge plans for Spider-Man and his cinematic universe, but will this be too much Spidey? I guess it all depends on your opinion on Marc Webb's movies, and how much you love the webslinger.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will be released on May 2nd, 2014, followed by THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 on June 10th, 2016, and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 4 on May 4th, 2018.

TWO THINGS

First off:
I don't like the idea of a Spider-Man Movie every year - but as far as I can tell the movies they're planning would only be Spider-Man "related", not starring Spider-Man.
Secondly:
What's with the 'Love-Raimi/Hate-Webb (or) Love-Webb/Hate-Raimi' thing? There's room for both interpretations in my opinion. I loved the two first Raimi movies, hated the third and really enjoyed Webb's take. None of them got everything right (comic wise), but I'm glad we still get solid Spider-Man

I think this is a good idea. It's a similar business model to Disney/Marvel. Disney has been making 2 to 3 Marvel movies a year successfully, so I think Sony can do the same. I'm really looking forward to all of the spin-off Spider-Man movies like Venom, Black Cat, Scarlett Spider, and The Sinister Six. I'm excited to see Sony expand their universe just like Disney did.

Wish I shared your sentiment but I don't think Sony can pull it off. They're nowhere near the quality of Marvel/Disney and the characters aren't that compelling. They will rehash a version of what Disney and Marvel are doing but it won't be the "same".

Ben F-ing Reilly and Kaine...bbbrrr...so bad a plot...I was physiologically drained or burned - quit comics and have only just returned. Looking back now, perhaps the clone saga was bad...but over saturation was also at play. So with that in mind, looking at the movies, Spider-Man 3 was so bad (having so many great characters in it but so badly done was one of the main issues at play), its only been saved from being the worst superhero movie of recent years because there's a movie called Green Lantern in existence. I have issues with Amazing Spider-Man too. I've stopped watching trailers for Amazing Spider-Man 2 in hope that going in blind will help with my overall enjoyment of this movie - but this Sony plan reeks of either doing all they can to ensure Marvel never get the rights back...or milking Spider-man for all they can so should Marvel ever get him back, they'll have to wait years before relaunching him. That crappy Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon (I bought it for my kids - I know, I'm an idiot) is down right annoying - how did that ever replace Spectacular Spider-Man???? Are Marvel trying to speed up the over saturation of Spider-Man? Honestly, I fear for the popularity of Spider-Man in the coming years. Heck, he's no where near my favourite hero now - I've not asked my kids - but I think they'd say the same too.

Marc Webb is a HACK

His spidey vision is just horrible.

Can anyone let me in on what a Sinister Six movie would be like??? I am assuming they are taking the stage and would it just be about the villains and no Spidey? OR would it be the Avengers version of Spidey? Sony doesn't have the rights to any other Marvel characters so it would just be like ASM4 right? Or Spidey and Venom vs Sinister Six? Idk, it just sounds horrible.

One more thing...

Also Marc Webb will now be pressured to direct one of these babies a year! (maybe not all of them) But still a direct sequel only a year after it's predecessor! He's going to have to start working on it immediately after this film premieres. Hell he's probably already working in pre-production. At least he had two years to develop TASM2. And at least Joss Whedon has 3 years in between Avengers movies to ensure they're not steaming piles of shit. But Sony giving him one year will put the

But Sony giving him one year will put the pressure on and compromise quality no matter how good Webb is. "But Marvel puts out 2-3 films a year. Why can't Sony?" Because Sony has the right to one hero and six villains. So you're saying we're gonna like one of these villains enough to follow them on a 2 and a half solo venture by 2016? Please give me a villain as compelling as Loki, Sony. PLEASE! I DARE you. I DOUBLE dare you motherfucker!!

I love Spidey, always have and I will defend the Raimi movies till I die (well 1&2). But even I think this is a bad idea. Let these movies be an organic extension of each other, not processed crap. I think ASM2 will be good, but the over marketing is not helping.

One every other year would be about right - allow them to maintain quality without initiating Spidey overkill. A yearly release schedule should be the least of their concerns, even if Spider-Man is a cash cow for them.

hmmm

Well first off I seem to be one of the few that can admit webbs film surpasses raimis first film and he looks like its gonna be the same for the second. I just dont see this working out. I really wouldmt care for many solo films to focus on the villians, sure theu coukd be interesting, but wouldnt they all be the same? plus if spiderman is only going be a cameo then what is the point? And about the venom movie and sinister six, im all for it, but only if spiderman is in them .

@AvidMovieLover

I'm not disagreeing with you, quite the contrary. However I'm not sure that a Spider-Man movie every single year is going to be good for the business, or the character, in the long run. Why aren't more studios adopting a James Bond model for a franchise like Spider-Man? Sure, finish TASM 2 & 3, but then do away with the perpetual re-boot idea and just continue making good stories about the Spider-Man character. Not everything needs to be a trilogy. Spider-Man in particular would work just as

Spider-Man in particular would work just as well being a well-written stand alone adventure, with certain elements carrying over into the next instalment every two or three years.

Well yeah this would be more beneficial in the long run I think to keep fan interest but I think Sony has no interest in fan interest not like Marvel. I mean hell, did you see the half-assed appearance by Spiderman at Comic-con? It was like Garfield was trying to ad-lib but had no apparent reason to be there in costume. Now compare that to Loki's appearance and there's no comparison. Marvel did a very thought-out thing with a script and everything. This seems to reflect how Sony appeals to it's

This seems to reflect how Sony appeals to it's fans vs. Marvel and Marvel has is to a science. Sony's like a kid grabbing his ass and trying to copy Marvel but doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. That model you're referring to? Marvel adapts it and Kevin Feige even referred to Iron Man being a James Bond figure. Yet Sony has NO interest in fan interest so they will follow the numbers and graphs and pie charts. I agree with everything you're saying yet Sony has made it pretty clear that they're gonna do what they're gonna do and until they see Marvel do something different that makes money and copy it, they're not gonna have the balls to change a damn thing.

Eh...

While I am looking forward to the new Spiderman, and hopefully the Sinister Six in the 3rd one, I still don't understand how they will do a Sinister Six movie without Spiderman in it...just hope they get Venom right this time

One thing everyone seems to be missing...

They don't care. It's a numbers game. The big wigs at the studios decided "Hey Spiderman makes tons of money for us. According to our numbers this demographic goes to see it every year no matter what so we can count on this projected income for the next 6 to ten years with a new Spidey film each year. Then when they do get tired of it we reboot and latch on to the next generation and make them our demographic." It's a different strategy than Marvel because it's not meant to be long term (ten or

Then when they do get tired of it we reboot and latch on to the next generation and make them our demographic." It's a different strategy than Marvel because it's not meant to be long term (ten or more years) but just enough until they see the numbers dwell down. One thing is for sure, they are NEVER letting go of this franchise and they can shit on it all they want because the sad but inevitable truth is, people will still go to see it.

i think...

the only thing that companies like Fox and Sony arent understanding, is that yes Marvel is releasing a movie each year, but its different movies based on different properties. Its not Captain America or Iron man each and every year. people will get tired of seeing a Spiderman each year because its the same movie over and over and over again. I mean how many times can you flip 1 property so its different each year. After a while its jus going to be a rehash.

Dont think you can make that assumption off the bat. You gonna tell disney that their marvel movies or star wars movies are gonna suck? Cuz those are (going to) be coming out yearly. If they have a yearly plan and have different directors and scriptwriters etc, it could work. Considering we all want to see venom. Carnage. Sinister six. Etc. Theres no way wed get them without waiting a decade if the movies are taking 2-3 years to come out. Its a sound plan. Lets see how they execute.

I have ALOT more faith in Marvel in what they are doing and what they have planned out than I do for Sony who just seems to throws darts at the wall and wish for something positive to stick.

I don't think you can really question Marvel at all at this point considering the films they have been making since Iron Man.

Venom
Carnage
Hobgoblin
Rhino
Hydroman
Shocker
Sandman
Electro
Mysterio

Can you really name that many memorable Thor villains? Or Iron man villains? Etc

So far theyre screwing up those villains' looks which is a shame cause that rogue gallery is second only to Batman. Say what you want about Rami's take but he got the looks of Ock,Sandman, and Venom(whenever Topher Grace's face wasnt shown) right. So far Webb is 0 for 4

@The_ConMan, yes Spider-man has an Incredible Rogue gallery but are they going to fight Spider-man ALL the time? yes that would be incredible...but who is going to play him? IS the quality going to go down because they are rushing? (yes!) Will the non comic fans get tired of seeing the same thing different villain? (YES!) Will Sony just put out garbage just to keep money flowing and so Marvel can't have Spidey (YEEES!) so yes ConMan Spider-man has awesome rogue gallery but a movie

Not as safe on an investment as they may think...

AMAZING spider-Man with inflation and 3D prices didn't do as well as any of the previous Ramsi movies.

Things changed in 2011 when Marvel stopped supporting the movies they weren't making, just look at the cartoons out right now, an awesome Avengers cartoon after canceling an already awesome Avengers cartoon and a hulk cartoon. No X-Men and the last Spider-Man cartoon I saw was so bad it seemed like Marvel was shitting all over it, horrible animation mixed with some PG family guy 4th wall

My point, things change, the most popular superheros won't always be the most popular, in 2014 Iron Man is much more popular than Spider-Man and that's just a reality.

Has any studio ever heard the phrase: "Over-saturation"?

Seriously, you'd think the marketing gurus of all these big studios would realize how counter-intuitive these desperate plans are. Do they really think no one is going to get tired of seeing a constant barrage of Spider-Man films ALL taking place in NYC?? The genius in Marvel's cinematic universe is just how different each film is from the other and how many different places they can go, while still remaining connected. That way, it never feels like too much of a good thing, since they balance

Sony's plan for Spider-man and Disney's with Star Wars seems to be to just flood the market with quantity over quality, and hope it sticks. Yeah, keep cranking out reboots and spin-offs and sequels, I'm sure NOTHING could possibly go wrong...

Exactly. Oversaturation. I remember i said that could happen to star wars if it happens every year and I got thumbed down to all hell. Now people are seeing it. However at two hours a pop once a year. Its not alot of time to invest in a movie series considering we all invest 8-24 hours (depending on a show) on a yearly basis. If its part of a larger story. I can see people accepting it.

My point exactly. When I mentioned over saturation below, that's what I was thinking. Look, I know that the studios are only in this for the money, but you have to be careful because if you just keep churning 'em out on a production line, the danger is that the quality will suffer, and then nobody wins.

As far as I can see, you have AS2, mayber Venom and Sinister Six, then AS3. After that, I'd be surprised if Garfield would want to come back. So you're rebooting again, or recasting the role, neither of which will probably go over well. Also, I'm curious how the villain spin-off thing will work. Unless you're making a J Jonah Jameson film starring JK Simmons, I can't say I'm too excited about spider-man spin-off films.

I'm calling it now...

Just watched the TASM2 trailer again, and I'm worried that the character beats for Spidey / Electro / Goblin are going to basically echo the ones from Spider-Man 3: Spidey / Sandman / Venom. I'm still looking forward to seeing the movie, cause I prefer Garfield & Webb to Maguire & Raimi, but this news of "Spidey movies every year" has me struggling to maintain faith that they can keep releasing good movies without over saturating the Spider-Man character.

This only makes me more angry at WB for taking it so slow with their cinematic universe. I mean, Sony makes a movie every year with only ONE superhero to their disposal while Warner has THE BEST line-up of heroes of any studio (yes, I take them over Marvel because they have the rights to ALL of their key characters). Why is WB so timid about their cinematic universe? I don't think they need to do it as mechanically and repeatetivly as Marvel is doing it with their recent films but 3 years

It wouldnt be so bad if it was 2-3 years apart for Batman or Superman films only, and they dont NEED to push something out every year. But rather than only Batman vs. Superman rumors, I'm ready to hear a WB statement saying that they cast _______ as Aquaman and are planning on a 2016 release or something. Dont put all your eggs in one basket WB....

AND stop scratching things. I'm ok with bringing Reynolds back as GL, even if his movie wasnt great. Stop releasing something, not liking

AND stop scratching things. I'm ok with bringing Reynolds back as GL, even if his movie wasnt great. Stop releasing something, not liking it, and then scrapping it 2 years later to reboot it. Only films like Schumachers Batmans or the Catwoman with Halle Berry need to be completely scrapped.

By the way, in that blank, there is a voice deep down inside of me that hopes they cast Adrien Grenier as Aquaman. Dont hate me fanboys, but Entourage is the shit.

Don't you mean BOTH of their key characters?

The reason they went back to the drawingboard was Green Lantern. And that was about as good of a Green Lantern movie could get, really... So that's why they aren't doing a damn Flash movie or a Wonder Woman movie between their Superman and/or Batman movies - they just don't work on their own. Not sure they'll work in JLA, but it's a better idea to introduce them there with characters people want to see and then MAYBE get some momentum for a

Oh and me putting DC/WB down like this doesn't mean that the whole Sinister Six or Venom movies are a good idea in my opinion. Sounds like utter desperation. But Columbia has no franchises, so...

Actually since Spidey will likely only do cameos in the films (after the first one) it'll depend more on non comic fans taking Venom and the villains to their hearts and that's a tough call.

Ridiculous.

It should be illegal for studios to announce sequels for movies that haven't come out yet, but even more criminal for them to announce a 3rd and 4th installment in a franchise without bringing the second one out just yet.

And I am not very optimistic that the general public will be able to ride the comic-book movie train long enough to see the end of this franchise out on a high note. 2018? Really?

No. I'm sorry, but no. Superhero movies, as much as I love them, are becoming way too

No. I'm sorry, but no. Superhero movies, as much as I love them, are becoming way too frequent and my personal attitude towards them is becoming gradually more negative. I think Avengers was a great event, and Age of Ultrom could be great, but all of these X-Men movies, talks of a Justice League movie, a Wonder Woman movie, Spider Man 3, 4, Sinister Six, Venom, Fantastic Four being rebooted... etc. etc. etc.

It's getting... ridiculous.

Then stop going to see them. Wait a few years then start watching them again. If your attitude is leaning towards negativity, then why continue to support them?

You're missing the point, majorkonig. This isn't just an individual basis. If studios keep on this track, then the MAJORITY of people will be feeling exactly how MasterChief is feeling. People will stop going to these movies, money won't be made, and the comic book genre won't be touched, leading to yet another dry spell of creativity. How about reeling themselves back a little and making us actually anticipate and look forward to comic book movies? You know, keep us interested in them by
