then came out with a report saying these talks "eventually broke down" over creative disputes, with neither studio willing to relinquish creative control to the other, and no clear strategy for how to share the character during their shoulder-to-shoulder 2016-2019/Phase 3 slate of movies.As of now, Sony has decided to drop the scenario altogether, and plans to move forward with their own slate of films, that includes Drew Goddard's , Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard] along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand, and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films.For instance: the cabin's underground Facility brings to mind the cold chrome interiors of Oscorp Tower, and its security forces resemble the Ravencroft SWAT team.
It doesn't mean those two won't be referenced in some capacity, but honestly, that seems to be the best scenario for those particular characters, and with the whole "Oscorp gone wild" approach for the spin-off, there's more cause for someone like BJ Novak's Alistair Smythe to return, characters who represents the corrupt elite at Oscorp, sort of like the ritual technicians from Goddard's directorial debut... It had its moments of gore, suspense, and horror parody, but it also had moments that were visually reminiscient of recent Spider-Man films."" refers to the fact that Andrew Garfield's involvement is, as he put it: "immaterial" to a movie without Peter Parker, so expect his in-costume double William Spencer to take over from here.Spencer does all the physical stunts from behind the red mask, plus having him in the role means Andrew only has to do voice-overs during post production.Inspiration for the device came from a famous pencil sketch by Leonardo da Vinci -- four tentacle-like arms attached to a waist harness, made capable of great strength and highly precise movement, impervious to heat and magnetism, and could strike with the force of a jackhammer.Otto's refusal to follow operational procedure led to a power spike in the fusion reactor, and even while the experiment overloads and becomes unstable, Octavius refuses to hault it and his wife is killed in the ensuing blast.
But other than that its pretty concurrent, and you won't hear anything else as official until the ' Spidey Summit' this January, which is either an agreement between Marvel's Kevin Feige and Sony's Amy Pascal to crack out a new deal, or a meeting between minds in their "franchise brain trust" to "forge a new legacy" or whatever.
