AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 4 "Might Not Just Be a Spider-Man Movie"
It looks like Sony Pictures might be setting up their own big superhero movie universe built around characters in Spider-Man. As you know, Fox has all of Marvel's mutants, Marvel has their thing going, DC and Warner Bros. have been trying to figure out what they want to do with their characters for years, and now there's the possibility that Sony is gearing up to try something with the Spider-Man characters they own the rights to.
In a recent interview with Crave Online, Webb talked about the fourth Amazing Spider-Man film he will be developing, saying that it might not just be a Spider-Man movie.
"Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen. I think [for] the fourth movie, what we've discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie."
This makes me wonder if Sony Pictures will end up developing stand-alone films for other characters in the Spider-Man universe. If they were to do that, what characters would you like to see get their own film?
