A swing in the right direction for Spider-Man franchise?

  • $140 million the amount “The Amazing Spider-Man” made in domestic ticket sales figure since opening six days ago
  • $114 million the amount 2002’s “Spider-Man” earned over just three days on its opening weekend source

» Positive reviews despite slow sales start: The new movie, starring Andrew Garfield, earned $341 million from its worldwide release thus far — and despite a slower start than any of the films in the previous iteration of the comic-book franchise, it certainly didn’t flop. “Skeptics in Hollywood wondered if it was too soon to remake the franchise, but Sony’s gamble paid off with big ticket sales and an upbeat reception from critics. Seventy-three percent of reviews compiled on website Rotten Tomatoes recommended the movie,” said a report from Reuters.

"Iron Man 3": Here’s the first Robert Downey Jr. on-set photo
The photo appeared on Tony Stark’s new, and still unverified, Twitter account a short time ago. While few details have emerged, as far as the plot is concerned, we do know that Disney and Marvel hope to have the film in theaters by next summer. On a side note, “The Avengers” became the biggest superhero movie of all time over the weekend. (thanks to Ta-Nehisi Coates for the tip) source

What’s next for “The Avengers” after its killer $207 million first weekend?

  • sequels With most of the franchise’s actors signed to multi-film deals already, the sequels are already on tap — “Iron Man 3” has a release date about a year from now; “Thor 2” should hit near Thanksgiving 2013; and finally, “Captain America 2” comes in 2014. But what about an “Avengers” sequel? That’s in the talks, too, though it’s early.
  • spinoffs Mark Ruffalo’s critically-acclaimed Incredible Hulk performance has built hype around rebooting that series (Edward Norton’s take, while not a flop, didn’t set the world ablaze, either), and Scarlett Johansson said that she knows Marvel “would be happy to entertain” the fans’ cries for a Black Widow origin story. source

Spider-Man joins The Fantastic Four, but with two downsides

  • cool Following the death of the Human Torch, Marvel is shaking things up with The Fantastic Four. First and foremost, they’re adding a new member to the team: Spider-Man. Intriguing!
  • stupid They’re also giving the troupe lame new costumes and an awful new name, “The Future Foundation,” that sounds more like a political action committee than a team of crime-fighters. source
