Spider-Man Gets A Start Date
As does Men In Black III

Spider-Man Gets A Start Date

A couple of tiny whispers of news this morning from the Sony front, as we learn that Untitled Spider-Man Reboot and Men In Black III both have start dates. The former starts shooting in LA in December, and the latter in September in New York.

The release dates for both are already set, of course; Spider-Man is due out on July 3, 2012, and Men In Black III is due on May 25, 2012. That means each should have more than a year post-production to get all those effects right - although in Spidey's case we're assured that they're going to go smaller with the effects than before. Maybe they're going to spend the time giving Andrew Garfield CGI acne or something, the better to remind us that he's supposed to be a teenager again.

Stepping into the webbed leotard this time will be Andrew Garfield, with Marc Webb directing and the rest of the cast yet to be set in stone. For Men In Black, Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and director Barry Sonnenfeld are joined by Josh Brolin and Jermaine Clement.

I couldn't be more underwhelmed if I tried. "Rebooting" a film franchise that was only "rebooted" a few years ago. Come on. And I think the MIB fims are over-rated, especially considering the talent and potential. Well the first one was. The second was just poor. It nees a decent zingy script, not just Will Smith doing his schtick. More

RE: Re : Radical Duck
L: Concise_Statement What they need to do with that film, is the thing they didn't do with Spider-Man 3, which is stening to fanboyste] You assume 'fanboys' are all of the same mind. Not so.  The problem isn't listening to fanboys, it's listening to the wrong/most noisy ones or, more properly, not knowing enough to tell between good ideas and bad. Fwiw - I hated Spider-Man 3 for probably the same reasons you or anyone else did. It was shit. I didn't want Venom in it either. More

Alas Smith & Jones
Men In Black 2 cooled my interest in another sequel, i'll wait to see the trailer. If it's the same old thing all over again, I'll catch it on DVD. More

Re : Radical Duck
Yes, because if Hollywood is lacking anything, it's cheesy comedy. No thanks. What they need to do with that film, is the thing they didn't do with Spider-Man 3, which is stening to fanboysruin films. They don't care about a cohesive narrative. They just want their own personal favourite bits and pieces from the comics thrown in and what you get is a disjointed film to serve the scrapbook nature of the trailer. Watchmen was made by a fanboy and it was a sprawling mess. The Lord of the Rin More

I agree with Lemure! And also please please please people working on Spider-Man, I don't care if the fight scenes are smaller scale, I don't care if the love interest isn't Mary Jane and I certainly don't mind the high school focus with all its social circles and potential for interesting sub plots but can we please cut the whining Peter Parker and have Spider-Man's cheesey comedy from the books?? Thats all I ask. Oh and a better costume would be nice! More

Summer 2012: Spider-Man, Avengers, Batman, Men in Black, and probably MI4. Who needs the olympics? More
