In the past few weeks, Marvel and Warner Bros. have dropped huge bombs on their fans by making massive superhero announcements. Fox seems content with what they have in terms of X-Men and Fantastic Four, but it seems that Sony is in a bit of trouble with Spider-Man. We didn’t get the news that the webslinger would join the Avengers this week, and the latest rumor could reveal that the studio is scrambling to figure out what to do with their franchise.

At first Sony announced their own Spideyverse in order to compete with Marvel and WB, but with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 performing lower than expected, Sony went back to the drawing board. One of their first moves was to reschedule The Amazing Spider-Man 3 for a 2018 release, and reschedule the Dirty Dozen-style Sinister Six for a 2016 release. And who knows what’s going on with that Venom movie. Now Sony is rumored to have an interesting film lined up. A new report says that the studio is planning to release an all-female Spider-Man team-up film. Hit the jump for more.

Venom

The Venom we saw in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 wasn’t really the Venom Spider-Man fans wanted to see, but it was as close to seeing the alien symbiote on the big screen as we were going to get. The character is most known for sharing the same abilities as Spider-Man, but also having some distinguishing ones like being able to block Spider-Man’s Spider Sense and limited shapeshifting.

For Alex Kurtzman, we can expect to see a Venom that is much darker than “your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man spinoff film of the same name. Hit the jump to see his comments.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Sony’s Spider-Man reboot is proving to be more damaging that profitable. From a domestic standpoint, the Spider-Man films, both franchises, have produced consecutive diminishing returns with The Amazing Spider-Man franchise producing lower than $300 million. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed only $202 million domestically versus Sam Raimi’s $403 million. Despite that, the studio is staying strong to their convictions, and is staying the course with their cinematic universe for the franchise character by releasing a Sinister Six movie in 2016, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018, and a female character spinoff in the near future.

Whether or not these films will help reestablish Spider-Man as a lucrative film franchise remains to be seen, but the first two films since the reboot does not bode well for the franchise’s future, and now Andrew Garfield has a response to why The Amazing Spider-Man 2 performed so poorly at the box office. Hit the jump to see what he said.

The Sinister Six will always be a constant threat to Spider-Man. Though the roster has changed throughout history, even once doubling to 12, Spidey’s greatest villains will unite the one signal purpose of taking out the webslinger. So when Sony announced that their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe would release a Sinister Six movie written and directed by Drew Goddard in 2018, fans got excited. Of course this meant that the films would need to build up to that one film, and it made plenty of sense that a Sinister Six film would be released after The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

But then came The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s disappointing box office numbers, which was then followed by Sony pushing The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s release date from June 10, 2016 to 2018. The studio then rescheduled the Sinister Six film from 2018 to 2016. Of course an entire film focused on the Sinister Six, that only has a few possible members on their roster that we have seen and another two confirmed outside of the film, would mean that Spider-Man would have to be involved in some sort of capacity. But Andrew Garfield doesn’t seem to think that’s happening. Hit the jump to see what he had to say about his possible lack of involvement.
