    SXSW: Marc Webb On How Video Games Taught Him to Make Films and What He Regrets About 'Spider-Man'

    Few filmmakers in recent memory experienced quite the ascent Marc Webb did when he was handed reigns to Sony's "Spider-Man" franchise with only one feature credit under his belt (the breakout Sundance smash "(500) Days of Summer").

    Sony Head Amy Pascal Promises 'Spider-Man' Movies "Every Year," Marc Webb To Helm 'Amazing Spider-Man 3'

    Outside of "The Amazing Spider-Man," Sony doesn't have much in the way of live action franchises, and that could be a problem. “It’s creative entropy, and I think there’s been too much of a reliance on ‘Spider-Man.’ They need some other things to build out,” media analyst Harold Vogel has opined. Bu...

    Sony Wants To Make 'Spider-Man' Spinoff Movies Because, Obviously

    In case you haven't noticed, Hollywood is loving blockbusters at the moment. Superheroes, TV shows turned movies, remakes, fairytales — if you've got an idea, they'll listen, and if it's pre-packaged as a possibility to become a series, hell, that's even better.

    Hugh Jackman Has A Terrible Idea To Put Wolverine, Spider-Man & The Avengers Together In The Same Movie

    With Marvel's "The Avengers" making a billion or so dollars, it seems every studio is now ramping up anything in their catalog that even smells like a team up movie.

    Sarah Gadon Joins 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Isn't Playing Mary Jane Watson

    Welcome to the big time Sarah Gadon. Granted, she kinda already has after bagging the female lead for Universal's "Dracula," but the actress who has recently been cutting her teeth on Cronenberg father/son films ("A Dangerous Method," "Cosmopolis," "Antiviral") is now spinning an even bigger web.

    Sam Raimi Won't Direct 'Oz The Great & Powerful' Sequel; Finally Saw The 'Spider-Man' Remake

    Maybe it's kind of a restlessness we don't understand. After a rather pitiable box-office this past winter, one of the worst on record, "Oz The Great And Powerful," of all things, is somehow poised to make around $70 million this weekend.

    Sam Raimi Explains Why He Left Both 'Spider-Man 4' & 'World Of Warcraft'

    It seems as if after "Spider-Man 3," all the king's horses and all the king's men just couldn't put Spidey back together again. Famously, series architect Sam Raimi tried with an attempt at a fourth film featuring John Malkovich as the Vulture, with Anne Hathaway in an unspecified role believed to b...

    Sam Raimi Explains Why He Won't Watch Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider-Man"

    Such are the times we live in that if you've been paying close enough attention, there are already some sites out there claiming Warner Bros. has a gameplan for when they want to reboot the Batman franchise. Maybe they do, maybe they don't, but considering that Sony kept only five years dist...

    Watch: Deleted Scenes From 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Offer Up Hints Of An Even More Cluttered Origin Narrative

    As was documented earlier, there was a lot cut from "The Amazing Spider-Man" as Sony and director Marc Webb wrestled with the film prior to release. Among the many elements that were apparently jettisoned in the "the untold story" (which turned out be the story we already knew) was an element that P...
