Spider-Man Movie In 2017; Possible Sony/Marvel Plans Revealed
Earlier leaked e-mails from Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal revealed Marvel Studios' desire to reboot Spider-Man without Andrew Garfield.
Now Mashable has got ahold of even more e-mails, with some that are memos that Pascal sent to herself in regards to her thoughts on the Sony / Marvel Spider-Man deal.
The memos read as a "What If" scenario and mention if Spider-Man does appear in Captain America 3, Sony would want another Spider-Man movie out in six months - for 2017 - meaning they would have to film around the Winter of 2015/2016.
It's also noted that a new actor would be cast as Spider-Man with a new costume, and Sony would use that actor first seen in Cap 3 for their new Spidey movie.
The e-mails are dated around October, so bear that in mind as things may have changed between Marvel and Sony.
To producer Matthew Tolmach:
I love introducing pp [Peter Parker] in cap but I know it comes with so many things since we won't give them what they want what will we give them?
We can say it's a cameo but I'll bet it's more and will involve some of his world and it will be peter and spidey right
