Sony Planning to Spin Mini-Spideyverse From ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Movie…?

How can you recreate the massive movie universe of The Avengers movie when you only have the rights to one comic? If you’re Sony Pictures and rumors are to be believed, you decide to spin that one comic out into multiple movies – starting with this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man and continuing, maybe, with a Venom solo movie.Talking to Hollywood.com, The Amazing Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach hinted that Sony may be looking at building its own Spider-verse out of its valuable Marvel franchise. Discussing the possibility of the Venom movie that Chronicle director Josh Trank is rumored to be developing, Arad said that “It’s an Eddie Brock story. We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock’s story. But again, pseudo-science is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie.” Tolmach picked up on the mention of staying “as close to the comics as possible,” adding “Look for the worlds [of the Spider-Man and Venom movies] to make sense with one another… What I’m trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday.”

Venom and Spider-Man living together in peace? That doesn’t sound very like the comics at all.

The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3. Maybe we should spend some time looking for possible Easter Egg cameos/possible spin-off set-ups in the background, when we’re not fighting motion sickness from the IMAX 3D action sequences… Say, for example, someone investigating clothes that apparently think for themselves somewhere in Oscorp Labs…
