Spider-Man Mega Movie Crossover Under Consideration


In addition to an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover, hacked Sony emails also reveal that a Spider-Man cameo was in serious consideration for for a future Marvel flick, The Daily Beast reports.

In an October 13, 2014, from Michael De Luca, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, reveals plans for a Spider-Man cameo in Captain America: Civil War, which is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.

“I really feel, in my heart of hearts, that the new spiderman [sic] in cap 3 could just appear in his own film, be it sinister six or a kick ass spidey film of his own, after that intro in cap 3 and people would be cool with it,” De Luca wrote.

DeLuca had other plans. In a September 20 email he discussed plans for not only a female spidey film but an attempt to emulate the planned crossover between Fox’s X-Men and Fantastic Four.

“[Simon] Kinberg told me fox is steering Xmen and Fantastic Four into an eventual team up film,” wrote De Luca. “Seems to me maybe, since the Spider-man universe itself is deep, you guys should look at sinister six, new spidey, female movie and venom as linked pieces leading to eventual mega movie ala Feige and Fox and not stand alone single films. It's early in all these and you can still map out a blueprint for connective tissue.”

The Sony Co-President of Production also revealed plans for directors that aren’t even set up with Sony which include Jeff Nichols (Mud) as director of Aquaman, and plans for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) to helm a The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018.

With the direction of the franchise in question, not to mention the other issues Sony is facing at the moment, one thing is certain, what lies ahead is anyone's guess.

  1. If I were Sony I would do Miguel O'Hara, Miles Morales, Mayday Parker, etc. movies then do Spider-Verse

  2. Sony is so f'cked up at this point. I disagree with the need to recast someone as Spidey, Garfield should remain. But, if a recast were to happen, Spidey should switch hands from Sony to Marvel completely.

    Maximum Carnage is the only thing that springs to mind. I don't think Spider-Man has a team of his own otherwise.

  3. People give Sony so much crap, and ignore that three of their five Spidey movies have been really good fun. I want to see him with Marvel, but I won't support them if they want to kick Andrew Garfield out and reboot yet again. I'm willing to see what they come up with in January at their Spidey Summit and judge following that. 

  4. I'd really like to see them pick a direction instead of throwing crap against the wall and hopes it sticks like a spider can.
