Can’t get enough super-hero movies? Well Sony have announced they are working on a plethora of Spider-Man spin-off movies.
Spider-Man was given the reboot treatment by Marc Webb last year and a sequel is about to hit cinemas next year, with Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino. Now, Sony have announced that the universe is to be extended with spin-off films revolving around villains and key characters.
Michael Lynton, Sony Pictures’ Entertainment chief, said, “We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works.”
He added that Sony is “working closely with Marvel and Disney” to make this possible.
If Sony are working hard with Marvel and Disney to make this happen, maybe we could see Marvel owned characters in the Spider-Man films and…(Please let it be true)…Spiderman characters in Marvel films (The Avengers anyone?)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release in April 2014. More here when we have it.
