Superhero Movie Update
With “The Amazing Spider Man” series, not to be confused with the “Spider Man” series, set to conclude with “The Amazing Spider Man 3” in 2016, Columbia and Marvel chose to get a jump on the Spiderman Reboot to the Reboot by announcing pre-production plans for a new trilogy called “Spidey.” Director, Writer and Actors have yet to be named but the release date of Memorial Day 2018 has been locked in as a means to box out “Mission: Impossible 6”, the already-announced follow-up to “Mission: Impossible 5” which will not be released until 2015. “Mission: Impossible 6” is tentatively scheduled to be directed by Derek Cianfrance who announced these plans after previously announcing his decision to drop out of directing “Peter Parker”, a “Spider Man” prequel also set to be released by Columbia and Marvel, with a release date of May 2019. Cianfrance had hoped to lure Ryan Gosling for the part of Peter Parker but Gosling has instead announced intentions to star in “The Green Lantern”, set for a July 2017 release, the reboot to the 2011 “Green Lantern” which starred Ryan Reynolds who will star as “Hawkeye”, an entirely separate entity from Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye of the forthcoming “The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron”, which will be released in the spring of 2016.
Meanwhile, James Cameron announced his intention to film a Justice League Trilogy – post Zack Snyder-Justice League Trilogy – but with a twist. It will be a Justice League meets Avengers Trilogy as both bodies of crime fighters team up to eradicate evil. In order to properly sculpt his desired Justice League meets Avengers universe, Cameron simultaneously announced his intention to write and direct his own “Batman”, “Superman”, “Wonder Woman”, “Green Lantern”, “Aquaman”, “Iron Man”, “Captain America”, “Incredible Hulk”, “Thor”, and “Black Widow” movies prior to filming his Justice League Trilogy. Therefore the tentative release date of his first Justice League meets The Avengers installment has been tentatively set as 2035, pushed back from 2034 to avoid a conflicting release date with the “Black Canary” (tentatively scheduled to star Lily Mo Sheen in the title role).
