 The Amazing Spider Man - Sony Execs Not Happy ?
topic by bigscore - 04-26-2012, 11:15 PM - Boxden > The TV and Movie Spot


The website Badass Digest is reporting that they have heard rumblings that Sony executives are less than thrilled with Marc Webb's upcoming superhero film, The Amazing Spider-Man.
nailbiter111 - 4/26/2012



"Take this with a grain of salt, but Devin Faraci of Badass Digest has returned from Las Vegas where he was covering CinemaCon, and has reported that while he was there he heard that there were Sony executives that loathed the new Spider-Man film.

I'm back from Vegas! All that travel means I'm a bit behind on some news, so while this happened yesterday I wanted to bring it up today...

Sony is looking at The Amazing Spider-Man as an investment. I've heard some really mixed things about the movie - much of which originates from INSIDE Sony - but no matter how the film does (unless the film is an unmitigated disaster, and that won't happen with a property like this), they're coming back for a sequel.

We'll see if The Amazing Spider-Man is as troubled as I've heard (the stories that come to me are that the execs hate it, and you can never tell when the execs are right or when they're stupid, stupid suits). "

They better be saying that cuz they love that Toby Maguire crap....

I've defended this movie way too much & been too excited for this film for me to be disappointed.

Venom was in the movie because the fans kept asking for him so Sony forced Raimi to put venom in

They could have put Eddie Brock/Venom in there without downplaying Venom. They didn't do him justice. Its not the fans fault, Sony is just money hungry & don't know wtf they're doing.

I wouldn't have minded if they introduced Eddie Brock, developed the animosity between him & Parker, and introduced the symbiote in a dope way late in the movie WHILE Spidey was handling Sandman & New Goblin. And then leave Venom as a cliffhanger for the 4th movie.

But in Spiderman 3, they had Venom doing 3rd string villain work & they even k!lled him at that.

Venom and the whole Black costume symbiote story arc is its own 2 hour movie.

Blame goes to the fans and Sony.

Of course we want Venom. But we didn't put a gun to Sony's head & say, "Give us Venom or we wont see Spiderman 3". Sony just got antsy at the $$$ they could make and shot their load too soon.

The fans also highly anticipated an Avengers movie as soon as Ironman 1 dropped, but Marvel Studios waited until it was logical to do so. And now look at the payoff.

they coulda set Venom up perfect for Spiderman 4 if they ended 3 with the Brock changing scene and Venom jumping at the screen as the final shot
