Since we’ve had two releases from Marvel Studios this year, there’s been plenty of talk about ranking the movies in the Marvel cinematic universe. But with 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four hitting theaters this weekend (for better or worse), we thought it was a good time to rank all the Marvel movies that exist outside of the MCU, which include Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, all the X-Men films and more.

Back in the year 2000, director Steven Spielberg had been slated to direct Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but he passed on the project, opting to take his career in a different direction by taking on both A.I. Artificial Intelligence (check out a recent visual study of the film) and Minority Report (which is being turned into a TV series). That left the opportunity open for Chris Columbus to step in and launch the franchise as well as directing the sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
But Chris Columbus nearly directed another huge franchise around the same time instead of Harry Potter. Did you know that Chris Columbus was previously the frontrunner to direct Spider-Man before Sam Raimi got the job?

Jon Watts got the gig as the new Spider-Man director for Marvel and Sony thanks in large part to his Sundance entry Cop Car, which casts Kevin Bacon as a sheriff on the trail of two kids who have taken his cruise for a joyride.

Still, we don’t know a lot about Watts. And aside from talk that the new Spider-Man movie, with Tom Holland in the title role, will have something of a John Hughes film quality, we don’t even know much about the project at all. In a new interview, Watts talks in general terms about Spider-Man, and while he’s guarded enough to reveal very little, what he says does help build our understanding of the upcoming film.

Goldstein were in talks to script Spider-Man, after losing out on the directing job to Jon Watts (Cop Car). Now the pair have finally confirmed their involvement, and have started to talk a little bit about their vision for the wisecracking webslinger.
The key word there is wisecracking — from the sounds of it, this Spidey will be wittier and funnier than his big-screen predecessors have been. Read the Spider-Man writers comments after the jump. Read More »

We’ve already been told that the new Spider-Man suit will “blow people away,” and now there’s a chance that a first glimpse at the new suit may have been revealed in a rather mysterious way.
A new Twitter account has just been brought to our attention that is purporting to belong to Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the next Marvel Studios production Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in production. And they’ve been posting some pretty perplexing photos, one of which that just might just offer a new Spider-Man first look.
