Venom Carnage

Following the news that Sony would be releasing a female-led spinoff film in the Spider-Man universe, comes word that Carnage could be a part of the Venom spinoff film, which is being co-written and directed by Alex Kurtzman. Ed Solomon is co-writing with Kurtzman. Little was known about the film other than it would involve Spider-Man’s greatest villain turn anti-hero. We don’t even know if it will go that route, but assuming they want to build a franchise out of this, they might as well try to make him one.

Now comes a rumor that the spin-off could be titled Venom Carnage, which would mean that the film would be already jumping into the deep end by having Venom fight his greatest nemesis, Carnage. Hit the jump to learn more.

It’s no surprise that there is a call to have more female-led superhero films. Marvel Studios seems to be close to cracking that glass ceiling, but has yet to make an official announcement. So with that studio trying to figure out how to go about it, Sony looks like they will be one of the first to pull the trigger on it, as they have announced that they would be releasing a female-led superhero film in their Amazing Spider-Man Cinematic Universe.

But who could it be? Spider-Woman? Black Cat? While nothing has been confirmed as to who it will be, we know that Lisa Joy Nolan (Westworld, Pushing Daisies) will be the one to write the script.

Sony Sets Release Dates For ‘Sinister Six,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ ‘Uncharted’

Sinister Six

A year ago Sony Pictures Entertainment had such high hopes for their rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was moving forth without a hitch and early footage from the blockbuster sequel screened at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con to an enthusiastic response. Back in December the studio was so certain that it was going to be the biggest movie of this summer, if not 2014, that they announced plans to exploit their ownership of the movie rights to the Spider-Man universe by developing spinoffs that would star Spidey villains Venom and the Sinister Six.

The plan originally was for Amazing Spider-Man 2 screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner to collaborate on the Venom feature, while Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard would write and eventually be called upon to direct the Sinister Six movie. Then Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened to withering reviews from critics and less box office than the studio had initially projected. I haven’t seen the second movie in the rebooted series yet but the consensus is that the gluttony of villains, lack of attention paid to the main characters, and an anti-climatic ending that was to have paved the way for the spinoffs are what hurt its chances at the box office. A $706 million worldwide haul is hardly anything to sniff, but Sony was hoping that Amazing Spider-Man 2 would top out at a solid billion and change at the very least.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

The mega-budget web-slingin’ sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was crammed from one end of the 35mm film frame to the other with reimagined villains like Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Sony Pictures Entertainment has made crystal clear its intentions to expand their rights to Spider-Man and the various characters in his universe into a cornucopia of spin-offs, including films based on the villains Venom and the Sinister Six.

The studio and director Marc Webb embedded clues in Amazing Spider-Man 2 hinting at the future of the main franchise and its possible side-quels, but the comic book blockbuster’s end credits sequence was originally supposed to include a scene implying that yet another of Spidey’s adversaries could make a return to terrorize the superhero and the people of New York.

SPOILER WARNING…

Sinister Six

As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 approaches its release date in less than a month Sony Pictures is intensifying their plans to put out a Spidey-related feature each year (as we reported here) by finally signing a director for their Sinister Six spin-off movie that would focus on an epic teaming of the Marvel-ous web-slingin’ superhero’s greatest villains.

Back in December it was revealed that Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard had come on board to write and potentially direct the film. Now it looks as if Goddard is officially being given the director’s chair on the still-gestating project which may not see a theatrical release until after The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which is set to open on June 10, 2016.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Goblin Glider Header Image

The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series showed us that there was a connection between the Vulture’s Tech Flight Suit and Goblin’s Glider. In the past few trailers we’ve seen for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we see the mysterious man walk by two high-tech supersuits that resemble Doctor Octopus’ arms and Vulture’s wings.

Now newly released images show how closely related the two are because the resemblance is uncanny. Hit the jump to check out the new images of Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin/Harry Osborn, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) holding on to some web for dear life, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) embracing Gwen Stacy, The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) preparing for battle, and much more.

There’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and then there’s everything else. For everything that falls under the latter, Sony and Fox are trying to establish their own cinematic universes and keep a tight grip on their respective Marvel properties. Sony already has plans to build a universe around the new Amazing Spider-Man franchise by launching spinoff films, while Fox is creating a world around X-Men and Fantastic Four, with the possibility of the two merging into one universe.

With Sony already working on spinoffs, the studio will have to look into finding a new director after The Amazing Spider-Man 3, as it has been confirmed that director Marc Webb will leave the franchise after the trilogy. On the X-Men side of things, The Wolverine director James Mangold confirms that he will begin shooting the tentatively titled The Wolverine 2 after X-Men: Apocalypse. Hit the jump for more.

Sony Promises To Release One Spider-Man Related Movie A Year

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Andrew Garfield

Sony intends to hold on to the Spider-Man rights as long as it can. Yes, releasing sequels will help their cause. Releasing spinoff films would too. But a new move made by the studio shows just how desperate they are to keep the property in their hands.

Now tell me if you haven’t heard this one before. Disney distributes around two to three Marvel movies a year. After 2015, they also plan to distribute one or two Star Wars films. A report from Variety says that Sony is jumping on the bandwagon by planning to release at least one Spider-Man film (character or spinoff) a year. This is not a good thing by any stretch of the imagination.
