MARVEL TEAM- UP
I felt I should write regarding Marvel’s rebooting of the reboot of the Spider- Man movies from 2012 – a whole three years ago. Barely. Really, Hollywood? Is that where we are now? It’s like that bit in Futurama where a show is cancelled in the trailer.
It was good to hear that Marvel had worked out a deal with Sony to get Spidey in Marvel movies – until it was announced that this would mean a ( hasty) recasting of the role, and a new movie, with probably a new director. Oh, and that Sinister Six film has been put back ( read quietly dropped).
Erm… sorry? That’s all easier than writing a scene in a film, say Avengers 3, with Spidey in? Or a short scene with Andrew Garfield’s Spidey in Captain America? It can’t be too hard to put him into a Marvel movie. To prove it, I have written a short scene with him in for Avengers 3.
Scene: A huge battle in New York. Oh, yeah, they did that. How about Rotherham? Settled.
The Avengers: Are nearly overwhelmed when a figure swings in, quickly taking out several opponents and buying the Avengers some time.
The Avengers: “Where have you been?” Spider- Man: “It’s complicated.” All that ridiculous red tape with Sony dealt with in two words. This feels like Marvel’s first cinematic misstep, but it’s a big one.
Chris Thorpe, Doncaster Why are they ditching Andrew Garfield? Well… it’s complicated. And possibly something to do with two massive legal teams clonking heads over some very sticky movie rights.
Will Spidey be a blessing or a curse for the MCU?
