Sony Pictures Teases Plan for 'Spider-Man' Spin-Offs




One Sony executive warns fans to look out for 'new heroes and villain,' while another chief at the studio reveals 'a number of scripts in the works.'

Sony Pictures has revealed its plan to expand "Spider-Man" franchise. During a recent presentation to investors, the studio's Co-Chairman Amy Pascal teased, as quoted by The Wrap, what to expect from the upcoming projects, "We are going to access Marvel's full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains."

According to Deadline, Sony's Entertainment chief Michael Lynton shed more lights on the possible sequels and spin-offs, "We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works." He furthermore added the studio was "working closely with Marvel and Disney."

After Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, the nightcrawler is rebooted with Marc Webb directing the first two films. The next movie, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", will be released in the United States on May 2, 2014, as a follow-up to 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man". Jamie Foxx will play Electro and Paul Giamatti is The Rhino.

Foxx once said there were discussions to bring together the infamous Sinister Six. Giamatti later confirmed he would return for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" slated for June 10, 2016. New story posted by The Daily Bugle's Tumblr page even hints at the impending appearances of Spider-Slayers and The Vulture.
