Since I have just received a small bit of bad news for one film I figured I might as well give some good news first. We have been alerted to two updates that revolve around Sony's Spider-Man 3. One update, though broad, says when we can expect the next Spidy trailer and the other is convinced that there will be more Spidy films after this third installment. Both sound pretty nice.
Spider-Man 3 Updates-- Trailers, Sequels
The first update comes from the mouth of Grant Curtis, who recently posted an official post on the Spider-Man 3blog with word on when we can expect the next trailer. Besides giving a date, or should I say window, Curtis also reveals his confidence in what he has been shown.
In regard to the next time you will get a glimpse of the movie, please know that we will have a trailer coming out this fall. Although I am not at liberty to say when exactly it will hit the theaters and internet at this time, I can tell you that I have seen a rough version of it and I am confident that you are going to be blown away. It is an incredible piece that showcases the full scope of the picture, both in terms of the gripping story as well as the groundbreaking visual effect shots. Be patient, it's going to be worth the wait.
The next update comes from Marvel Studios prexy Kevin Feige. MTV caught up with Feige and got him to spill his thoughts on multiple Marvel projects including the Spider-Man film franchise.
Feige directly addressed rumors that it might be the final film for the friendly neighborhood web-slinger.
"There will be many more Spider-Man films to come," he promised. "We already have stacks of ideas for the next one because of the wealth of stories in the comics. We could be making Spider-Man movies for the next 20 years, based on the 50 years of Spider-Man history we have."
That doesn't necessarily guarantee, however, that Tobey Maguire will continue as the man under the mask.
"When you're concentrating on one movie at a time, there's a beginning and a middle and an end to that process," Feige reasoned. "We've been topping each one as they go, [and if that happens again], that's the time for those discussions."
Check out the whole report with Kevin Feige at MTV.
That's it for the Spider-Man 3 updates! Now I have to go report on some bad news.
