When rebooting the 'Spider-Man' franchise, director Marc Webb brought many of the classic characters with him to the 'Amazing Spider-Man' films. One character that didn't make the cut was J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Parker's blustery editor at The Daily Bugle. Jameson was played memorably by J.K. Simmons in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' films and Webb now admits it's time for him to appear in the new series of films.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' isn't in theaters for a few more weeks, but we're already talking about 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3.' And 'The Amazing Spider-Man 4.' And 'Sinister Six' and 'Venom', which today we learn will both arrive in between parts three and four of the 'Spider-Man' movies. If your choice of death involves overdosing on Spider-Man, the next few years are going to be very helpful.
With 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' set to hit theaters in just under two months, director Marc Webb has been one rather busy gentleman. In addition to promoting the new film, Webb is also preparing to go back to work for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3,' which will hit theaters in 2016 -- but for fans hoping that the director will stick around for the fourth film, we've got some news: Webb will sadly not be returning to the director's chair after Spidey's third installment.
It's a good thing people really like Spider-Man because he's the one thing Sony seems to be relying on at the multiplex. Although the studio fell on rough times these past few years, 2012's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' was a big hit and this year's 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' looks ready to rock the box, as well. But how much Spidey will audiences tolerate before they pull a J. Jonah Jameson and declare him a menace? Well, the folks at Sony are ready to push their luck on that front with plans to release one Spider-Man movie a year for the foreseeable future.
A strange thing happened during the production of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' Shailene Woodley was cast in the small role of Mary Jane Watson, AKA, the love of Peter Parker's life, but the part was completely excised in post-production for reasons that remain nebulous. Although she will not be appearing in the second film of the rebooted superhero franchise, some have wondered if she would be brought back for the inevitable third and fourth films ... and now we have an answer.
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man just got a much bigger neighborhood.
Sony Pictures has officially announced their 'Amazing Spider-Man' spinoffs, expanding the Spidey universe with 'Venom' and 'The Sinister Six' films.
The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' trailer will be online Thursday and promises to give us our first real look at what to expect from the upcoming sequel. One thing is becoming clear, though: this is not just a "Rise of Electro" movie and very much the beginning of The Sinister Six. Even the brand new plot synopsis talks of Spidey's new "formidable villains."
We've heard rumblings of the Sinister Six in future 'Amazing Spider-Man' movies, a plan that would theoretically bring back villains from the first film and the upcoming 'Amazing Spider-Man 2.' Now, we seemingly have some confirmation of that plan as Paul Giamatti has confirmed that he will return as The Rhino in 'Amazing Spider-Man 3.'
In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' our favorite webslinger will due battle against the Rhino and, the main villain of the film, Electro. However, Paul Giamatti (playing the former) recently revealed that he's only one of several villains lurking around, inciting once again the long-rumored involvement of the Sinister Six in this or subsequent installments. But now this rumor seems like more than just a possibility as Jamie Foxx confirms this is an idea being thrown around.
