Amy Pascal, the co-chairman of Sony Pictures, has been discussing some well-publicized financial issues at the studio, and one quote in particular has a lot of people talking:
We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.
Is she talking about the all-but-confirmed rumor the Sinister Six will eventually appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4? Will Spider-Man need to recruit another hero to help him win that battle? Or is Pascal talking about spin-offs set in the Spider-Man universe, such as the long rumored Venom film? We discuss below.
UPDATE: Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Michael Lynton added more fuel to the fire with this gem of a quote:

Briefly: The Crow is one of a few reboots that has had a very halting development process over the last few years. The James O’Barr comic, about murdered musician Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to avenge his killing, and that of his young wife, will reportedly star Luke Evans when cameras finally roll under the direction of by Spanish helmer F. Javier Gutiérrez.
A new rumor, from Schmoes Know, now says that The Walking Dead and Boondock Saints actor Norman Reedus is now set to play a guy named James in the reboot. Who is James? Good question! Given the roles that Reedus often plays, it’s easy to suspect he’ll be among the crew of malcreants that Draven faces upon his supernatural return to the land of the living. But given the dark world of the story, he could end up doing just about anything. And, frankly, given the number of times The Crow has faltered in the past, until an official start of production announcement hits there might not be much reason to ponder the question too deeply.
Will The Wolverine sequel be based on a comic book story? Are there other Spider-Man scripts at Sony? Want to see Dr. Selvig’s notes from Thor: The Dark World? Where can you stay in a Batman hotel room? Is the gag reel from Red 2 funny? How much did BatKid cost the city of San Francisco? What kind of motorcycle is Cap driving in Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits. Read More »
