Movie news site TheWrap.com is reporting that Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal told investors:
“We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.”
Director Marc Webb has said in the past that the current story was originally envisioned as a trilogy, so the already greenlit Amazing Spider-Man 4 could be something different. Perhaps a launchpad for characters like Black Cat and Venom to get their own films? Or, for an incredibly far-fetched theory, perhaps a Clone Saga movie leading to a Scarlet Spider spinoff? Doubtful, but hey, anything’s possible! Could even be Spider-Girl! Or hey, the Prowler!
PLUS: In other movie news, viral site TheDailyBugle.tumblr.com continues its “news articles” with a piece by Joy Mercado about Norman Osborn’s experimental hydroelectric power plant, including a statement by Osborn employee Donald Menken. Nice references for us webheads!
