What’s going on with Spider-Man over at Sony? Great question! The guy seems all… tangled up in…string, er, webs. That is, plans. Anyway, you get it. Seems like a bit of a mess over there.
A third Amazing Spider-Man film is planned, with a scheduled release in 2018, and before that we’ll (maybe) get the bad guy team-up movie Sinister Six. That film has been described as a Dirty Dozen sort of story with Spidey basically in the Lee Marvin role, working with the villains. That’s one conception of it, at least. There’s talk of a “soft reboot” of the series, culling out a lot of the more poorly-received aspects of the last two films while retaining the basic aspects. We don’t know what’s up with the mooted Venom movie, and there are rumored plans for a solo film highlighting one of the women in the Spider-Man character roster.
Now there’s a new rumor of a project going by the code name Glass Ceiling. This one concerns a bunch of the female hero and anti-hero characters from Spider-Man’s history, and could team them up into a single film. Assuming it gets that far, at least. Get the Glass Ceiling details, such as they are, below. Read More »

We thought Christian Bale was a pretty solid choice to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming movie, but it turns out we weren’t half as excited as writer Aaron Sorkin is. Calling Bale “the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin expressed his confidence that Bale would “crush it” as the late tech guru — in a role that is particularly difficult, and present in every single moment of the film.

However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she not yet been cast. Watch McCarthy talk about the film, along with Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres, below. Read More »
