Sony Confirms New Spider-Man Movie Coming in 3D in 2012

February 10, 2010


This isn't really earth-shattering or heart-stopping news, but it's important to hear anyway. Sony has issued a press release today confirming that the new Spider-Man movie (currently called just Spider-Man again), being directed by Marc Webb, will "swing" into theaters worldwide on July 3rd, 2012 in glorious 3D. The new film, which is still untitled, will begin production later this year directed by Marc Webb from a script by James Vanderbilt. Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin will produce the film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios. There aren't any other updates on this reboot besides that release date and 3D confirmation today.

Jeff Blake, Sony Pictures Chairman, said: "Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D. Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the world, and we know audiences are eager and excited to discover Marc’s fantastic vision for Peter Parker and the franchise.” I am indeed eager to see his vision, but I am not too eager to see it in 3D. That is, unless Webb convinces them to shoot this from the ground-up using 3D. If they do that, I might consider check this out in 3D. We'll find out what they're doing soon enough. What do you think?

    Do I need to say it? Do I? ok...F A I L. Way to go Marc Webb. So now we get to see Spiderman go down in flames in the 3rd Dimenson!

    I guess it depends how they use the technology. In Avatar, to be honest, I forgot after a while the effects were there. Every once and a while there was something that snapped me back to realizing that it was a 3D movie, but for the most part, it was like watching a regular movie. I guess it depends if they try to use the 3D for purely shock value or if they apply it like they would any basic filming technique like lighting or sound. People may not like it, but 3D is the way movies are going, at least until we're able to produce stable holography technology on a larger scale.

    3D 3D go away, come again.......never.

    Why must every film now be in 3D? It seems that every film has to be in 3D, if this is the way of the future with films being made. I wonder how much longer it will take before the adult film industry will start to make all their films in 3D!

    Hopefully in April Sony will finally admit that this is a big april fools prank and annouce the Spiderman 4 script with Raimi and Toby :)

    "Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience" -- Jeff Blake, Sony Pictures Chairman Uhhh... Correction, Mr. Chairman... Spiderman 2 was the ultimate summer movie-going experience of 2004, I'll agree with you as far as that goes. The first and third films were out in early May. I know studios call them summer movies; but summer more traditionally begins at the end of May (or even as late as the third week of June, depending on when schools let out, in respective areas of the country.) Spiderman 2 did open on the 4th of July weekend; and it was the best summer movie that year. However, in this world, you're only as good as your last screw-up; and the screw-up I'm referring to (of course) is Spiderman 3. It sucked. You have a long way to go to prove that this can continue to be a worthy franchise. You'd do well to remember that. You can publicly feud with Sam Raimi and trot out gimmicks like 3-D all day long. But, at the end of the day, you still haven't cast any leads and your director is a relative unknown, who has only directed one film (a chick flick at that) and a bunch of silly music videos. So you have *no* stars to speak of and your director followed the same road to film directing as McG... You may be starting to see why people will be very skeptical, of your little "ultimate summer movie-going experience".

    All that matters is that Batman 3 won't be in 3D.
  • paul
    You know, Why not call it something like The Amazing Spider-Man?
  • movie mike
    Could be a great 3d movie if used well like avatar. I could picture myself excited as i feel like i'm actually swinging with him. But.....It's not needed. Lets hope Webb dosen't become sony's little rag doll like Gavin Hood when he did X men Origins
  • trap door sspider-man
    yet another Spiderman...this time in 3D....YAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNN....ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz...
  • germs
    Great! Now the whole movie will look like it was shot at night.
  • Dude
    At least they're thinking outside the box. I don't know of any films coming out in the next year or 2 that'll be in 3D (sarcasm). Will the Escape from New York remake be in 3D I won't be surprised if it is.
    I am not big on 3D (Except Avatars) but will watch the reboot in both formats....first in regular 2D then a second in 3D...Whoa !!! Yes people you do have the option of seeing these 3D movies in 2D....Theatres do that you know...., so I really dont fucking know why everyone always bitches and complains when a movie goes 3D do have an option...idiots. Anyway I am now skeptical that this will be kept at 80Million in budget....does Sony realize Spider-man movies (yes even crap like Spidey 3) are guaranteed 300 Plus million domestic and probably 800 Million worldwide.
  • Colt
    16, not every theater carries the 2d version as well. so stfu dumbass. and if the studio execs are reading this....Fuck 3D.
  • Apparently Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line is to be re-released in 1D
  • guh
  • Ryan
    @16 - Yeah, you can see it in 2D, but have you ever seen a 3D movie in 2D? It sucks. It doesn't look right at all. All the dimensions are too exagerrated and very distracting. It just seems very off. I recently saw Monsters vs. Aliens in 2D on DVD, not knowing it was a 3D movie in theaters. Within a few minutes, I could tell because of the way the different planes of view were moving that it was originally shot for 3D. It was very distracting. Remember kids, JUST SAY NO!... to Spider-man in 3D.
  • sam
    ramini severely wounded spiderman movies and now this guy is going to finish the job take spiderman back to highschool what idiots

  • Mary
    3D? Wow. I most definitely am not going to see it now.
  • Luisnyc1
    The spiderman movie is taking to long to come out it will lose some of it's viewers not to mention that the main actors are new bad move for the movie company Toby McGuire was perfect fit and Kirstin dunst was good although I have never been a fan of her work disappointing move and to much time that people will not be as into it
    • Becca
      I agree, but keep in mind Toby McGuire quit the movie. and probably since they already started working on it, the decided to just get a new actor
  • Boricua King 188
    i hope its good
