Could Anthony & Joe Russo Have Hands in 'Spider-Man' at Sony?

Anthony & Joe Russo

Just yesterday we reported the rumor that Cabin in the Woods writer and director Drew Goddard was being lined up to write and direct the first film in Sony Pictures' new Spider-Man franchise. As of now it's just a rumor, so perhaps there's a chance that someone else could take the gig. The Wrap reports that Anthony & Joe Russo, the directing duo behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the forthcoming sequel Captain America: Civil War, have just struck a new first-look deal at Sony Pictures that will begin in April and last for three years. Sounds like it could be the perfect gateway for them to direct the new Spider-Man.

This just just pure speculation for now, but let's not forget that the first appearance of Spider-Man in the Marvel cinematic universe will come in Captain America: Civil War, so it wouldn't be out of the question for the Russo brothers to follow Spidey back to Sony. You might remember when details on discussions about Sony and Marvel potentially sharing Spider-Man leaked online, the duo was on one side of an e-mail thread with former Sony chief Amy Pascal talking about the deal not coming together at the time. So clearly they were privy to what was going on with Spider-Man, and maybe it's because they wanted a crack at it.

Anyway, we'll likely find out soon enough what will happen with this new Spider-Man movie since it's slated to arrive on July 28th, 2017, especially since the character will have to be cast before then for an appearance in Captain America: Civil War. In the meantime, the Russos are obviously happy about a new deal at a major studio, "We’re thrilled to make a home at Sony Pictures, and to be partnering with the entire team. The studio has created an environment that is not only collaborative, but truly filmmaker-friendly and we’re excited to begin developing both new and ambitious material with them." While it would be cool to see them tackle Spider-Man, hopefully they have more up their sleeve too. Thoughts?

    Previous check i got was 5000 dollars for working 12 hours /week online. Sisters friend has a profit of 11000 bucks monthly for some time now and she is working about 20 hours a week. I couldn't beleive how easy it was after I tried it. The potential with this is endless... Here Is what I do>

    I would prefer they stay with Marvel Studios, but since the Sony deal has them (possibly) doing Spidey, it's sounds like a good move. If they can do Spidey in the same vein as Cap:WS then it should be a good movie.
