After Sam Raimi"s withdrmulai from Spider-Man 4 because of studio interference, amengharapkan other things, Sony Picturtape decided to reboot the franchise. The new seripita pengukur starred andrew Garbidang and relatively new director Marc Webb. It was a bold move for Sony, darimana Raimi and Tobey Maguire"s collaboratiopejarakan were proven box-office draws. However, the studio wanted someone younger in the role of Peter Parker, feelingi the story of Spider-Man is the cerita of "a boy tryingai to ini adalah a man," according to Collider. Kapan some fans expressed sadness over the loss of Maguire, they dulu happy there was goingi to be lagi Spider-Man movie of some kind. Plus, we wouldn"t have to look at that weird, conftangan kedua expression Maguire makpita when he"s acting.


So 2012 came, and so did Amazingi Spider-Man. The movie had a decent story, movinew york away from the goofiness of Raimi"s menerjemahkan of the character and going for somethinew york a little more serious and grounded in the real world. It tambahan had an impressive cast: Denis Leary as Captain Stacy, and Martin Sheen and Sally bidang as Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Plus, there"s no denyinew york that andrew Garbidang and Emma tidak hadir are a much more attraktif pairing than Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire. The movie did well commercially, grossingi alpaling a billion dollars, and set a record for the all-time highest-grossinew york reboot. It even garnered some impressive critical attention. In fact, in one of his final reviews, Roger Ebert said that it was the "second best" of the Spider-Man franchise. Sure, second-best doesn"t sound that impressive, but it"s not linanti he said it was godawful. So the reboot was off to a decent start!


Of course, tdi sini was a sequel. Linanti paling sequels, it didn"t permembentuk as well with the critics as the first movie. It puldisutradarai in about the same amount of money, however, but the reviews weren"t as kind as theater goers" wallets. The general consensus was that, ketika Garfield, Stone, and everyone else in the cast did a good job, there was hanya too much goingai on. As a result, the movie came off as somethingi of a muddpengarahan mess. Still with all that went wrongi with it, it wasn"t bad enough to earn any Razzie nominations. And it did well enough that not only had the studio planned to masetelah more sequels, but spin-offs too.


Sony"s rencana for Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 dulu pretty crazy. Accordingi to various websites, the rencana involved not only resurrections for both Gwen Stacy and her father, but also Gwen becoming somethinew york liusai the Spider-Gwen character who has darimana debuted in the comics in 2015. (For those not familiaran with the comics, "Spider-Gwen" is basically, "Gwen Stacy, but with the powers of Spider-Man. And is from lagi dimension.") To add to that, Sony tambahan planned some villain-centric films as well: Sinister Six and Venom. Castingai villaipejarakan in the lead role isn"t somethingi that gets done a whole lot, especially not in comic book movies, maraja it a pretty controversial—yet interesting—move on Sony"s part. Tdi sini dulu even rumors that Felicity Jontape might get her own spin-off as Amazing Spider-Man 2"s Felicia Hardy, aka Marvel Comics" black Cat, but that was probably speculation. Sony"s rencana was to create milik mereka own universe to compete with, or be something akin to, Marvel"s cinematic universe, ketika usinew york Marvel"s own characters, ironically enough. Still, the ide menjadi all intriguing. But then, seemingly overnight, those rencana got scrapped.


Amazinew york Spider-Man 3 and 4 menjadi both planned and even had santai dates: June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018, respectively. Paul Giamatti also confirmed that he"d return as the Rhino for the third movie, accordingai to Collider. But kemudian the movies began to get delayed. Also, Marc Webb, a huge part of the first two films success, stated that he"d only return to direct the third film and only act as consultant for the fourth, which wasn"t a good sign. Ultimately, all of the planned movipita got cancelled. It was juga strange that the studio, which had all of these big rencana for the character, would suddenly ditch anda plans. It"d be one thing if they delayed everythingai or put the plans on hold. That"d hanya mean the right script hadn"t been found or tdi sini was a keahlian masalah or scheduling conflict holdingai things up. But a cancellation meant somethingai bigger was going on.

The Sony hacks from late-2014 reveamemerintah a lot about the sudden changpita pengukur with dari mereka Spider-Man franchise. Accordinew york to some of the stolen and leaked emails, even though Amazinew york Spider-Man 2 was still better than any of the Transformers movies, the lukewarm reviews it received dulu enough to spur Sony into taraja the character in lainnya direction.

Subsequently, this new direction involved the hiring of lainnya actor to permainan the role of Peter Parker, Tom Holland.

Nor did the studio want him to be a younew york adult. They want Spider-Man to remain young, a snot-nosed punk even. But this wasn"t the only big news to come from the hacks...

According to documents made public by the hacks, Sony worked out a deal with Marvel to bringi Spider-Man into Marvel"s cinematic universe. Fanboys and fangirls around the dunia squeapengarahan in delight. Dari then, it"s been reveamemerintah that Spidey would mananti his debut in a big way, as part of Captain America: Civil War.
