    Sony Pictures & Marvel Studios' 2017 Spider-Man movie thread

    Well, the studios have found their director and the actor who will play Peter Parker / Spider-Man.

    From Marvel Studios:

    Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are proud to announce that after a full worldwide casting search, Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. The film will be directed by Jon Watts, director of “Cop Car,” the upcoming thriller that made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

    Marvel and Sony Pictures, and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal conducted an extensive search for both the actor and the director. The studios and producers were impressed by Holland’s performances in “The Impossible,” “Wolf Hall,” and the upcoming “In the Heart of the Sea,” and by a series of complex screen tests. Following Marvel’s tradition of working with the brightest next wave of directors, Watts also went through multiple meetings with Feige, Pascal, and the studio, before winning the job.

    Commenting on the announcement, Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, said, “It’s a big day here at Sony. Kevin, Amy and their teams have done an incredible job. The Marvel process is very thorough, and that’s why their results are so outstanding. I’m confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.”

    Feige commented, “As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring.”

    Pascal added, “Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

    Sony Pictures will finance and release worldwide the next installment of the $4 billion Spider-Man franchise on July 28, 2017, in a film co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the Web-Slinger.

    Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.


    ---------

    Sounds like they don't want anything to go wrong with this version of Spidey... hopefully this will be the Spider-Man movie we have all been waiting for! (Although, I still like how Sam Raimi handled the franchise... until Sony stepped-in and screwed part 3 up beyond repair.)

    Also in 2017, Andrew Garfield will star in the next Avengers film, where he will be reprising his role as Spider-Man for the final time. I can't wait to watch Spider-Man teaming up with the Avengers for the first time just like in the comics and cartoons.

    I wasn't. ASM2 made less money than ASM1. Garfield is associated with Sony's attempt at a Spider-Man universe, meched out Rhinos and diseased Goblins. ASM2 seemed more concerned with setting up a Sinister Six movie. Sony wised up and decided that they'd rather make Spider-Man right. Everyone wins -- Disney, Marvel and Sony.

    First Spider-Man film since Spider-Man 3 I'm actually excited about. Really excited. This is the first time I'm actually glad we're getting a reboot. The director choice I find very intriguing, too. Really love it when they go for virtual newcomers.

    Here is 100% confirmation:

    Marvel Studios has officially confirmed that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will appear in Captain America: Civil War.

    During their interview Marvel Studios executive Kevin Feige, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Tom Holland, who was just announced as Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ new Spider-Man, is heading to Captain America: Civil War’s set.

    “Holland will report immediately to the set of the currently shooting Captain America: Civil War, which Marvel has scheduled for a May 6, 2016, release and in which the newest Spider-Man will make his first onscreen appearance,” The Reporter’s Gregg Kilday wrote.

    Well, it looks like he'll be earning lots and lots of money soon...

    I wondered the same thing, found out he's 19. It will allow them to milk him being young for a bit though for sure if he looks that young at the age of 19, which can work in their favor. That is the downfall of many of these younger characters when you go to make movies.

    Still wondering just how Spidey will fit into all of this... and the Ant-Man for that matter...

    He got himself fired from the series by snubbing one of the heads of Sony. Some even said it was on purpose just so he could get out of a franchise that quite honestly wasn't doing his career any favors.

    Most of this info was leaked during the Sony email hacks that occurred.

    Why do most people accept jobs that they don't like? They use that job for a purpose.

    Spider-Man was probably a career high profile shot in the arm that he needed to reach the big leagues. With two Spidey movies under his arm, everyone knows who he is now. Before that, people didn't know who he was.

    That's the great part about the MCU. It's closer to the spirit of the characters than the comics that it came from! Hulk is Banner. Tony is Iron Man. Steve is Cap. Thor is the son of Odin. The only "knockoff hero" is War Machine. Even Sam Wilson is the Falcon.

    Which is crazy...say if you loved the Falcon from Winter Soldier. If you try to go into a LCBS now, you'll find that he's now Captain America. You become a fan of Thor from Age of Ultron? You grab his book and now a woman has replaced him. Thor has his arm missing and carries an axe now.

    Channing Tatum recently came out and said he hates the G.I. Joe movies, but his contract with Paramout basically forced him to make the movie. He actually wanted to be Snake Eyes.

    The chip on the shoulder here had more to do with what happened in the second movie. He implied in an interview there was a lot of shot footage that wasn't used because Sony decided to add in a third storyline, and they didn't go back to fix up the holes in the two main storylines. On top of that he is kind of known for being in generally the two least accepted Spider-man movies to date. The second ASM actually had the basis of a fairly decent film. Garfield was still hard to buy has Peter Parker, but they dropped things like the Skateboarding etc to focus more on the relationship he had with Gwen and his parents. to have the parent storyline pretty much dropped and several key scenes dealing with the relationship with his girlfriend and him being a superhero, so they could try to build up for a Sinister Six movie.

    I admitted right after viewing it, it could have been a really good movie if they hadn't tried to cram too much story into such a little spot. And come to find out it was because of Executive Meddling. Hey look Marvel did this with the Avengers let's try it also....
