On the bright side, Sony as a whole is bleeding money right now, so if The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn't do as well as they are hoping, Disney might have the chance to buy back the rights soon. Barring that, a desperate Sony might be up for a crossover with The Avengers at some point, because if the collaborated it could easy boost the Spider-Man movies from $250 million movies to $400+ million movies if they do a storyline that starts in one movie and finishes in another so both studios benefit.

I knew he was male from the comics (pronoun usage in some strips reveals it), but the Garfield and Friends show really threw me for a loop when they used a woman for his voice actor.

Eh, ASM wasn't my cup of tea. I'd rather get a pure MCU Spidey than try to mesh two different universes together. Emma Stone, on the other hand, is welcome back any time.

Tell you what Andy, I agree. What's more, I can make this happen for you. I really can. But it won;t be easy, and I don't work for nothing. I'll do it for...your girlfriend. That's all, just send your girlfriend to me. Or a clone. I'll settle for a clone.

And I, as a huge fan of the  actual Spider-Man, and not Spider-SonyMan, don't want that Sony/Garfield abomination to have anything to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Furthermore, I want to go on record to say Garfield SUCKS as Peter Parker, unless the goal was to make Peter into a complete douchebag, then I guess he succeeded.

Sony has already said they plan to release a bunch of Spider-Man spin-offs. They're making Sinister Six movies. It's going to be a sucky decade for Spider-Man fans.

I still haven't seen that movie, but it looked good in the trailers.

As some Farker said years ago, Batman's enemies may fear him, but Spider Man's enemies absolutely HATE him, partly because he insults them to their faces.  I think very few people besides Spider Man will call the Kingpin 'Fatso' and 'Tubby' to his face.

They have a lot of big plans, but the whole Sony company is in major financial distress right now, so some of those plans could get derailed if TASM2 underperform this summer., and Disney waving an immediate cash infusion in their face could be a hard offer to refuse. Each of those sequels and spin offs may be bringing in less than $100 million in profit once the final accounting is done, each one being a risk of speak sort, while Disney could throw down billions in cold hard cash. If Sony is in a bad enough spot, they might take the quick and easy payday instead of waiting for the long term plan to pay off.

A Spider-Man/Avengers movie would make more money than either individually (especially Spider-Man) so can't they come up with a profit sharing deal? If Robert Downey Jr is really leaving after Avengers 3 then the whole shebang is over soon so stop being children and negotiate.

The Batman/Superman thing looks like a fiasco waiting to happen so the whole superhero movie thing might be coming to a close anyway. Unless "Antman" can save the day.

I thought he was a good Spider-Man. He had the wise cracking, smart ass thing down. He snack talked quite believably, which was always missing in the Sam Rami ones for me. Toby always sounded like he was going to start crying to me.

Garfield as Parker was less believable for me, though. He just came off too "cool" to be Peter.

Because Hollywood shuts it all down if one movie in a stunningly profitable genre underperforms? And they all collude, so there'd be no studios left to target under-served markets?


/Also, Ant-man would earn three billion dollars if they would just return my phone calls.

If Disney gets the Spidey rights they should NOT give him his own movie. At least not right away.

Say the Avengers need to do some street level investigations in NY. Fury says to Cap (or who ever) "you hear about this skinny kid swinging around the city? SHIELD is getting tired of cleaning up after him and we think he owes us a favor."

No origin story. Just extort the web slinger into working with the big boys cause he has some experience with street thugs.

Agreed. By this point everyone and their grandmother knows how Peter got his powers.

That should be the matra for every comic book movie. Unless it's a movie dedicated to the origin of a superhero like Batman Begins, origin stories drag a movie down. When Batman comes back, if I see those Goddamned pearls hit the ground one more time, I'm going to punch a kitten. The same thing with Uncle Ben getting killed, Superman shot into space, Peter Parker getting bitten by a spider or every other farking origin story that the tribesmen of the Kalahari who have never seen a comic book already knows. Skip it and move on.

I agree but only with the bigger names.  I admittedly never HEARD of Iron Man before the movie (and I'm 42).
I never knew anything about him, Thor OR Captain America, for that matter.

Hulk, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, I knew.

So this Ant Man coming out?  I need an origin story.  Daredevil (which I didn't hate since I had no knowledge of the comic), I needed an origin.

Yeah, you have a point. I guess I was just referring to Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and the Hulk that they keep rebooting and repeating the same origin. Then they do the origins of the villains and by then it's just rescue the girl and the movie's over.

I'm not a comic book guy either, not obsessively anyway. And I have no idea what Ant Man is, so I guess an origin story is in order but make it quick.

I actually don't know that it would - personally, I'd be less excited for a Spider-man/Avengers movie than just an Avengers movie, as the former means I have tolerate Garfield's acting. He's barely passable as Spider-man, but as Peter Parker? Jesus, it's painful.

Gunther: but as Peter Parker? Jesus, it's painful.


From what I can tell, the biggest issue with him as Peter Parker is he's simply too dreamy!  He's not believable as a outcast-nerd teenager!
He's a handsome, charming guy!

Again, I don't read the comics but I've always been under the impression that was the whole POINT of Spiderman

Just create a short where Spidey is right in there fighting during the battle for New York. The city is huge he might run into the Hulk and Ironman could zip by.

The main reason he's not believable as a teenage Peter Parker isn't that he's too gosh-darn handsome but because he's thirty and doesn't have the acting chops to pull off seeming younger than he is. Scenes where he tries to play the rebellious angsty teenager are bad enough they make you feel embarrassed for him.

It's gotta be a difficult thing for studio execs to stamp their approval on. They need money short term, so they have to please a normal crowd and not a comic book fan crowd. Some character you can do both, hell most of them you could do both.

Garfield doesn't look popular on this site but I don't think it's all his fault; whoever wrote in that he needed to have a skateboard or be the moody dickish teen is at fault. The other things like moving like spidey and looking natural in the suit he did much much better than the tobey/raimi spidey.

and its jarring. because of his mannerisms and the way he plays the part you forget he's supposed to be 17 (he comes across as late 20's, early 30's) so when he suddenly does some 'stereotypical' teenager thing it pulls you right out of the movie.

What we need to do is reboot spiderman all over again because that never gets old.

No, in all seriousness, once Disney/Marvel buy the movie rights to Spiderman back, you'll see him in the Avengers and they 'should' bring Toby Maguire back for 'one' more movie and then have him hand the mantle over to Miles Morales.

Well the neat thing about comic book heroes is that their "complex" origin can be summed up in a sentence or two as a blurb on each comic. And that sources of their origin are readily available? Who wants to see a superhero being a boring non adventure having person? I didn't see any of the Blade movies but did they show his origin or was he always having a good time slaying vampires? In Indiana Jones and the last crusade we saw PART of Indy's origin, and that was enough to show his relationship with his father, his daring, love of artifacts, etc. Now that's a good way to address an origin.

Gwen Stacy being cloned by the Jackal was my retroactive wish cast upon a syphilitic monkey's paw. I loved Gwen more than MJ and was shocked to find that they brought her back and I didn't know about it until reading old omnibuses. I understood quickly why I had never heard of such a thing when I lived in a world where Bucky, Jason Todd, and uncle Ben had all received the Grim Reaper's Triple Tap.

Sony took Emma Stone, one of the most amazing red heads in all of Human history, and turned her into a laid back blonde. She would have been *perfect* as Mary Jane Watson, but noooooo!

I still don't understand the reasoning behind that decision.
