Thanks, and no, I had never heard of that app. I don't have a smartphone.

They have the worst costume designers in the business. They are dead-set on re-living the 90s, over and over again.

The designs for the Raimi Spider-Man Trilogy weren't all that bad. The Green Goblin from the first film was probably the worst design but even that wasn't terrible. Venom could have been a bit better but for the most part looked fine.

It was a bit odd that they chose to have Doctor Octopus wear a tutu, though.

I haven't seen AS2 yet, but this seemed relevant.

Andrew Garfield Talks Spider-Man Involvement in ‘Sinister Six’ Movie
Published by Kofi Outlaw

Sony’s Spider-Man franchise is in a strange place right now. The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2 have both been mixed bag affairs (as generally acknowledged by both fans and critics), and the Spider-Man Movie Universe that Sony hoped to launch off the back of ASM2 has lost significant momentum with both hardcore fans and general audiences.

Yet and still Sony is pushing ahead, with a Sinister Six villain team-up film planned for 2016; Venom and a female hero movie both rumored for 2017; and Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018. That’s an ambitious plan, but a lot of the details remain unclear – namely, how much of Spider-Man will we see involved in all this?

Well, there’s one person who would probably know the answer to that: The Amazing Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield.

Garfield (like many celebrities) is currently making the rounds at TIFF, where (like many celebrities) he was approached by journalists about his bigger pop-culture franchise. In regards to Sinister Six, its director Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods), and Spider-Man’s affiliation, Garfield would only say the following:

Quote:
I know more than I’m allowed to say right now… I can say I’m really excited about Drew Goddard, who’s going to be writing and directing The Sinister Six movie. And whether I’m involved in that or not is kind of immaterial.”

“I don’t know if I should say anything right now. But Drew is really exciting… Hence, me not telling you s— about that.”
What it sounds like from that quote is that a franchise star is trying to step aside and be a team player by promoting his teammates. However, Garfield’s good graces aside, there is still the question of how much Spider-Man is necessary in these movies in order to sell them.

Right now, the general public doesn’t care about the Sinister Six – they probably don’t even know that it’s a thing, yet. Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t do all that much to set up the villain team-up (the pieces are there, sure, but the concept has yet to be fleshed out); and while Venom certainly has a fan base to stand on, Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 proved that the anti-hero needs proper room to establish himself onscreen. Without knowing what the possible concept is for a female-centric film, it’s hard to call how much marketing potential is there.

That’s all to say: at this point it seems like there’s going to be a lot of Spidey webbing needed to string all these things together into a shared universe. Spider-Man is the selling point of this franchise – and as we pointed out, he may be the only one right now. More to the point: trying to create something that could be as unique as a Sinister Six movie – and then, trying to tie it into the larger Spider-Man narrative – is nearly impossible to do without showing people Spider-Man along with it.

Ok, who is ready for Aunt May: The quest for wheat cakes?

Quote:
Sony rumored to be making an Aunt May film without Spider-Man

Now, it’s my solemn duty to put another wild Sony thrashing Spider-Movie on the pile of rumored Spider-Man movies. I was told by the Latino Review editorial brain-trust that this is completely true: Sony is pursuing an Aunt May movie.

Yes, an Aunt May movie. A movie about Aunt May as a youth, before she was shouldered with the responsibility of raising Peter Parker. The target mood is some sort of espionage story in the vein of AMC’s Mad Men, which sounds like a way of saying “classier Agent Carter” without name-dropping Marvel’s upcoming series.

That has to be a BS rumor. I don't trust Sony w/ this franchise anymore but that really seems stupid even for them.

That can't be real. If it is, whoever thought of it should be fired. Jesus christ... just let Spidey appear in a MCU film... it'll benefit everyone.

"You mean all we need to do to keep the Spider-Man rights for another 5 years is make a low-budget Aunt May movie?"-some Sony exec.

That makes no sense using Aunt May. Use Peter's parents. In the comics they were spies.

Re: Venom Movie & Sinister Six Movie Announced As Spider-Man Spinoffs By Sony

A movie with Aunt May as a youth? So basically they are making an adaptation of the Trouble miniseries which was a comic with teenage Ben, May, Richard, and Mary?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trouble_%28comics%29

That's supposed to be May and Mary on the cover pic below.

The plot was worse than the cover. Seriously, read the synopsis.

Perhaps you'd like to join forces with me and 20th Century Fox.

Sony says that the Fantastic Four reboot sounds so bad that even they aren't interested. We're willing to talk if you give us the X-Men.

That depends on how many twinks you have at your disposal.
