Two More Movies In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Franchise Confirmed For 2016 And 2018


CULVER CITY, Calif., June 17, 2013 – With Sony Pictures Entertainment now in production in New York on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, slated for release on May 2, 2014, the studio is planting its flag on two future release dates for one of the most successful franchises in studio history, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. The next two films in the story of Peter Parker will be released on June 10, 2016, and on May 4, 2018, respectively.

Commenting on the announcement, Blake said, “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The executive producers are E. Bennett Walsh, Stan Lee, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci.

The Amazing Spider-Man took in over $750 million at the worldwide box office last year.

Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson NOT Appearing In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

While focusing on their cover story "Divergent", Entertainment Weekly reports in their latest print-edition that the storyline for Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson is now being saved for the third installment of Marc Webb's "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise. Said Woodely, "Of course I'm bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason...Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film." This news, ironically, comes on the heels of rumors that actress Felicity Jones is playing another Spider-Man love interest, Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat.

Initial remarks from Marc Webb explicitly stated that Mary Jane would only have a brief appearance in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" as a set-up for a bigger role moving forward. Webb's statement was backed up by the relative short amount of time Woodley spent filming the sequel. Well apparently, that brief appearance is now being saved for the third installment of "The Amazing Spider-Man" which was just recently revealed to have secured a June 10, 2016 release date. No word on whether the footage that Woodley has already filmed will be used in the third installment or scrapped all together. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will be released in the US on May 2, 2014.

From Marc Webb [via Deadline] - "“I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her."

Sam Raimi Talks About THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and Spider-Man 4

Sam Raimi's previous comments about Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man made it seem like he would never watch the film, comparing such an action to going to watch your ex-girlfriend on a date with another guy. Well, recently the director of Oz The Great And Powerful and the original Spider-Man trilogy revealed to HeyUGuys that he finally got over his trepidations and watched the movie, here's what he thought.
"It was very hard for me to see the new Spider-Man movie, I felt so attached to it, I couldn’t see Spider-Man with another director; it’s like my love, and I didn’t want to walk in on my love with someone else. It was just like that. Then I got over myself last week and said, ‘just see the damn thing’. And I did, and I loved it. I actually felt free. I thought, ‘why am I carrying around this baggage?’ Of course the next Spider-Man story should be told, and [Marc Webb] did a wonderful job telling that. I loved the movie, and I’m looking forward like a fan to the next instalment. I love the comic book, and now I don’t feel bound, and I’m really glad somebody’s remaking it again."
That's great that Mr. Raimi enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man. I hope great things for his future as a film director, and I can't wait to watch his Oz The Great And Powerful, I'm really looking forward to that. So what did Sam Raimi had to say about his departing with Sony Pictures on the "now dead" fourth-installment of his Spider-Man series?
"It really was the most amicable and undramatic of breakups: It was simply that we had a deadline and I couldn't get the story to work on a level that I wanted it to work. I was very unhappy with Spider-Man 3, and I wanted to make Spider-Man 4 to end on a very high note, the best Spider-Man of them all. But I couldn't get the script together in time, due to my own failings, and I said to Sony, "I don't want to make a movie that is less than great, so I think we shouldn't make this picture. Go ahead with your reboot, which you've been planning anyway." And [Sony co-chairman] Amy Pascal said, "Thank you. Thank you for not wasting the studio's money, and I appreciate your candor." So we left on the best of terms, both of us trying to do the best thing for fans, the good name of Spider-Man, and Sony Studios."
Well we all already knew about Anne Hathaway was gonna be Black Cat in "Spider-Man 4". I do like the reboot as much as the first & second, but I do feel the original series should've ended on a high note. So what do you webheads think of this news?? Comment below and let me know!

Chris Cooper To Play Norman Osborn in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2!

While there has been some speculation on who will be playing Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, nothing was ever set in stone. That all changes today as The Hollywood Reporter has reported that actor Chris Cooper will be playing the Oscorp CEO. Variety first reported he joined the cast, but was unsure of what character he was playing.

I kinda have mix feelings for this choice, but he's not a bad choice at all. Just I can't see him becoming the Green Goblin, unless he has a stunt double, or they completely make him Hulk Goblin (Oh please God no). There's rumors that Dane DeHaan, who is playing Harry Osborn, is probably gonna be the Green Goblin instead. After all it has been reported that Dane is working out for the role. I hope this isn't the case, because I want to see the original Green Goblin take on Spider-Man in this new series. But I guess we will have to see how this all pans out.

In the comics, Norman famously becomes the Green Goblin. However, there are no plot details at this time to suggest that he will make an appearance in the film as the Goblin. Cooper joins the already jam packed cast that features returning stars Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, and Sally Field as Aunt May. Also rounding out the cast are new comers Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane. The film is set to hit theaters on May 2, 2014.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Begins Production!

New York, February 5, 2013 – Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.

The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.

The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.

The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
