Can there really be a thing as too much Spider-Man? According to Variety, Sony might be in trouble because they're planning on putting all their eggs in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 basket. Here's what Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal revealed:
"We are expanding the 'Spider-Man'
universe into 'The Sinister Six' and 'Venom,' so that we have
'Spider-Man' movies every year."
Current projects in the works include a script for Venom, a Sinister
Six film, as well as the Amazing Spider-Man 3 which will be due out in 2016. Stock analysts are worried that the studio might be relying too much on the Spider-Man
franchise, and believe diversifying is the a better option for Sony instead trying to play catch-up with Marvel Studios.
The reality here is that Spider-Man is just one hero. While his supporting cast might be rich and complex, they're still a supporting cast. There's just no way Spidey will be able to take on "the X-Men and Fantastic Four micro-universes," or "all the rest of Marvel" all by himself.
It has been another incredible year for HBO, mostly thanks to the roaring success of Game Of Thrones. The network has earned an incredible 137 Emmy Nominations, 32 of which are for GoT. That means it also broke the record for the most nominations for a single show, previously held by NYPD, which received 26 nominations in 1994. Read more
