Brian Bendis is one of the most well known, respected, and successful comic book writers of our generation. He's won five Eisner Awards in his life, and is the man behind the comic book Spider-Man reboot, Ultimate Spider-Man, which he still continues to write after ten years.
Spider-Man film reboot director Marc Webb has said that he loves the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book stuff, and now it looks like Webb and Sony Pictures are reaching out to Bendis for some advice. In fact, he's actually already met with them. Bendis tweeted today the following:
Just spent a very interesting morning at Sony with the entire spidey movie team!! Very very cool stuff!!
It would make sense that they would want to bring on Bendis to help out, possibly as a consultant. After writing over 130 issues of Ultimate Spider-Man I'd say Bendis is the most qualified man to go to for advice about Spider-Man.
Sony really needs to nail this next Spider-Man film, there are a lot of people who could care less about it, but ifthey actually make a great movie, then I'm sure fanboys and fangirls will gladly jump on board the bandwagon again.
What do you think about Bendis' possible involvement with the next Spider-Man film?
