‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’ Release May Be Pushed To 2017
  |  @   |  

If you are still bitter about The Amazing Spider-Man 2, no one would really blame you, especially on account that the film got mixed to negative reviews, and is one of the lowest earnings Spider-Man films of the five that have been released. Though the $60 million weekend opening – it took almost a month and a half to reach over $200 domestically – and a $600 million worldwide gross isn’t a complete loss, the fact that the grossing numbers have been dwindling since the reboot isn’t exactly what Sony was hoping to see.

With Sinister Six and Venom spinoff films coming in the near future, all of which are interconnected to The Amazing Spider-Man canon, Sony is left to rethink their strategy for the franchise, which may actually include pushing The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s release from 2016 to 2017. Hit the jump for more.

Yelchin Out For Peter Parker, Possibly In For Harry Osborn?

Those good ole boys over at /Film are reporting an interesting casting rumor regarding Mark Webb’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Anton Yelchin could be the next actor to portray Harry Osborn.

If you recall, Yelchin was one of those actors rumored to be in the running for Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the film. As we found out, the role eventually went to Andrew Garfield, but if the rumor is correct, Yelchin could still be a part of the production.

I was originally OK with him being Peter Parker, but this new rumor seems a bit more interesting to me. Previously, Osborn was portrayed by one of my current favorite actors, James Franco, but I never really felt like that casting choice totally clicked. Yelchin has impressed me in pretty much every role I’ve seen him in and I would have total confidence in him if this rumor turned out to be true.

Ultimate Team-up? Brian Bendis Meets ‘Spider-Man’ Movie Team

If Sony’s main intention is to give the Spider-Man movie franchise a “younger” refreshed take rather than another sequel, they should consult someone who’s successfully done so in the past like Marvel scribe Brian Michael Bendis. This is the relative consensus among fans familiar with Bendis’ work on the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book series, which modernized the web head for a new generation of fans.

Both the studio and new Spider-Man director Mark Webb apparently agree with this sentiment as anyone following Bendis on Twitter found out after he told the world he “just spent a very interesting morning at Sony with the entire spidey movie team!! Very very cool stuff!!”
