Not everyone liked “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” In fact it fell into the same area of biting criticism that Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3” did.
There was a lot of talk about “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” and hopes of a spinoff for The Sinister Six movie, but it seems all that has been scrapped since the announcement that Spidey made his way over to Marvel from Sony.
So the two and a half hours you wasted watching “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” was all for nothing. Hooray! In all honesty the news kinda sucks, but hey Spidey fans, it is time to look forward.
The horizon is indeed a bright one for the Spidey franchise. While not much is known about where the films will take us here is what we do know. According to Latino Review the franchise is starting over under the name “Spectacular Spider-Man,” it will start with Spidey in high school and have him grow up over the planned trilogy, and it will inevitably tie in with “The Avengers” at some point.
Drum roll please?! Director Drew Goddard will take over as writer and director for “Spectacular Spider-Man.” Goddard has worked with “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon in the past on both “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Alias.” He has also formed cult status around his films “Cloverfield” and “Cabin in the Woods.”
While staring all over again for a third time and potentially having to watch uncle Ben get shot again in yet another Spidey origin story might sound horrible, the places someone like Goddard can take the franchise is exciting.
Who would you like to see cast in “Spectacular Spider-Man,” where do you want to see the story go?
