The official press release made no mention of Andrew Garfield and did state:  “the new Spider-Man.”

In addition, no mention was made of director Marc Webb or producer Avi Arad.

Now a reporter for The Wrap is stating Andrew Garfield is out and a new actor will be cast as Spider-Man.

“CONFIRMED: Andrew Garfield is NO LONGER Spider-Man,” Linda Ge tweeted. “Someone new will be cast. First appearance in MCU, then solo film.”

Likewise, a journalist for the Wall Street Journal also says Andrew Garfield will not be Spider-Man and adds Sinister Six will not be coming out next year.

“Andrew Garfield will not be in any more Spider-Man movies. Time to cast a new web-slinger!” Ben Fritz tweeted. “Sony will NOT release Sinister Six in Nov 2016, source says. Sony delaying, rethinking, but still developing in light of new deal.”

Marvel and Sony have given the new Spider-Man movie a July 28, 2017 release date.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:14351:]]

Director Marc Webb lets in be known that three is enough.

Webb in an interview with the Daily Beast says that Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be his last time directing Spidey, and that he won’t be directing Amazing Spider-Man 4.

I’d like to be involved as a consultant, and I’ve already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, that will close out my tenure. I’ve had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it’ll be the time to find something else.

Amazing Spider-Man 4 is due out May 4, 2018, and Sony has plans for a shared universe of their own as movies for Venom and the Sinister Six are currently in development as well.

Marc Webb Responds To Villain Overcrowding In Amazing Spider-Man 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:14226:]]

The number of villains in Amazing Spider-Man 2 seems to increase with every new report.

There is the Rhino, Harry Osborn, Electro, Alistair Smythe, Norman Osborn and any other small time bad guys or villain Easter Eggs director Marc Webb wants to include.

For fans, this may bring back memories of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 (or even Batman & Robin).

Marc Webb is well aware of the comparisons, and at the recent South by Southwest keynote on Saturday at the Austin Convention Center a fan brought up that very fact.

Webb’s response (via THR):

“We’re obviously familiar with the complaints people had. We’re very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it’s very important that you create obstacles that are difficult to overcome.”

Webb also added that Paul Giamatti’s character – The Rhino – is only “in the movie for four minutes.”

SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT TO EXPAND THE SPIDER-MAN UNIVERSE ON SCREEN WITH ALL-STAR WRITING TEAM

Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to Collaborate with Marc Webb and Producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach on Developing the Universe and Expanding the Story in “The Amazing Spider-Man 3,” “Venom,” and “The Sinister Six”

 

CULVER CITY, Calif., December 12, 2013 – In a move to forge a new legacy in the story of Peter Parker on screen, Sony Pictures Entertainment, in association with Marvel Entertainment, is developing several new projects in the Spider-Man franchise, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio.

The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films. Under the deals, the studio announced that Kurtzman & Orci & Pinkner are writing the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which the studio hopes Webb will return to direct; the film will go into production next fall for release on June 10, 2016. In addition, the team will build on the cinematic foundation laid by Webb, Arad, and Tolmach in the first two movies. They will expand the franchise as Kurtzman & Orci & Solomon will write the screenplay for Venom, which Kurtzman will direct; also, Goddard will write, with an eye to direct, The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise. Hannah Minghella and Rachel O’Connor will oversee the development and production of these films for the studio.

In tapping these five writers, the studio and the producers are guiding the future of the franchise with the writer/producers who have each played significant and key roles in developing such highly successful franchises, films, and series as Star Trek, Transformers, “Alias,” “Fringe,” Men in Black, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, World War Z, “Lost,” Cloverfield, The Cabin in the Woods, and Marvel’s upcoming “Daredevil” series.

Commenting on the announcement, Belgrad said, “The Spider-Man film franchise is one of our studio’s greatest assets. We are thrilled with the creative team we have assembled to delve more deeply into the world that Marc, Avi and Matt have begun to explore in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We believe that Marc, Alex, and Drew have uniquely exciting visions for how to expand the Spider-Man universe in each of these upcoming films.”

Arad and Tolmach added, “This collaboration was born out of the great experience we and Marc had working with Alex, Bob, and Jeff on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With more than fifty years’ wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless; in addition, the Spider-Man comics have the greatest rogues gallery of any series, and to have the chance to explore that on film is truly thrilling. Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story. That is what Alex, Bob, Jeff, Ed, and Drew will do in this unprecedented collaboration, and we’re excited about the directions they are taking the character and the world.”

The most successful franchise in the history of Columbia Pictures, Spider-Man is embraced all over the world. The four Spider-Man films to date have taken in over $3.2 billion worldwide. Spider-Man, Venom, The Sinister Six and other Spider-Man related characters are licensed to Sony by Marvel Entertainment.

Andrew Garfield Might Not Be Back For Amazing Spider-Man 4

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:12595:]]

Sony has already announced a release date for Amazing Spider-Man 4 with May 4, 2018, but it might be without Andrew Garfield.

In an interview with Yahoo, Garfield lets it be known that his current contract is good only for another movie, meaning for Amazing Spider-Man 3 which comes out June 10, 2016.

I mean I’m under contract for another one after this… as far as a fourth one? That’s not anything to do with me.  But yeah, I think what we’re doing here is we’ve established the world. And now we get to really play inside that world.

Of course it is entirely possible Sony and Garfield could come to terms on a new contract or a new actor could nab the role. Or for that matter –  another reboot?

2018 is still a ways off, but in regards to Amazing Spider-Man 2, which hits this May, both director Marc Webb and the villain of the movie with Electro, Jamie Foxx, offer it will be better than the first.

“This time around we’ve really focused on making this a driving action movie from the get go,” boasts director Webb of the movie’s action credentials, complementing what new Harry Osborn actor Dane DeHaan calls the “really great” script.

“When they did the first [movie] they were like rookies at it, letting people know what was going on… and it was fantastic,” agreed Electro star Jamie Foxx. “But now they’re really in command of the roles. Marc Webb is in command of the scope of the movie and where he’s going with it.

The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Colm Feore, and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn.

Commenting on the announcement, Zimmer said, “Marc and I were talking about Spider-Man, and as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man.  That was the thing that united all of us – the great love for Spider-Man.  With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, ‘Why not start a band?’ Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve.”

Vollack added, “This kind of collaboration is only possible because of who Marc Webb is – not only a director but also a musician – combined with who Hans is and what Spider-Man means to so many people.  Nobody has ever approached film music in this way before and this likely can never be replicated.  We’re huge fans of Hans, Pharrell, Johnny, Mike, and Dave, and when combined, we know the result will be truly unique… and amazing!”

Zimmer, a nine-time Oscar® nominee and winner for his work on The Lion King, previously collaborated with Williams on the film Despicable Me, as Williams produced four original solo songs and several other character-sung pieces.  They later collaborated on the music for the 84th Annual Academy Awards®.  Marr played on Zimmer’s score for the hit film Inception, Einziger played on his score for The Lone Ranger, and Stewart played with Zimmer on the score for Madagascar 3.

In 2003, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers presented him the prestigious Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement for his impressive and influential body of work.

Pharrell Williams, a three-time Grammy winner, is one of the world’s most in-demand and influential music producers and recording artists.  This summer, Williams became the 12th artist to hold the #1 and #2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously as he was featured on two songs – Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” also featuring T.I., which Williams also produced, and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” which Williams co-wrote – both of which have been called the “Song of Summer.”  He has previously composed songs and the score for the hit animated films Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2.

Johnny Marr rose to fame as co-songwriter and founder member of The Smiths.  Since then, Marr has continued to push boundaries and work with some of the world’s most exciting musical artists, including Modest Mouse, The The, Pet Shop Boys, Talking Heads, and Beck.
