More rumors emerge that everything it not so rosy over at camp Spider-Man as many fans are lead to believe. We have seen earlier reports suggesting that Marvel and Sony will collaborate efforts to see Spider-Man share the screen with other heroes from the MCU. Fair enough this shouldn’t raise any concerns, but considering the huge amounts of red tape preventing awesome collaborations in the past, why now is it so easy to consider? Will Sony eventually hand over “Marvel’s property” because of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” blunder?
Spider-Man is rumored to join other heroes in an Avengers crossover movie but there seems to be additional pressing matters about the future of the web swinging hero.
Badass Digest had the following to say in their latest scoop:
– Sony is going to soft reboot Spider-Man with The Sinister Six, having a new actor playing a Spidey who works with the villains The Dirty Dozen style to take down a larger threat.
– Sony is going to put Spider-Man on the shelf for four or five years and see if they can develop any of the side characters into their own franchises.
Ouch! Is this the end of Andrew Garfield suiting up as Spidey? A soft reboot with “The Sinister Six” and excluding Garfield seems a bit excessive considering not all that has gone wrong should be credited to the creative team and lead actor. Garfield mentioned that Sony’s script changes messed up ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′, specifically noting that portions of the original script were removed which severely altered the storyline.
Andrew Garfield also recently spilled the beans about Spider-Man’s involvement in the upcoming “Sinister Six” spin-off movie. Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man will not be playing a big role if the actor’s comments about the anticipated flick are anything to go by.
“The Sinister Six” is planned to be released on November 11, 2016, while “Venom (2017)” is still waiting for an official release date. Rumor has it that “Venom” might be cancelled.
