Sony Pictures has just officially announced that the new "Spider-Man" reboot will be in 3D and has set the film with a release date of July 3, 2012.
The film, to be directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, will be based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book series and have Peter Parker vack in high school
Jeff Blake, chairman of Sony Pictures worldwide marketing and distribution, said in a statement: "Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we're thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next instalment in 3D.
"Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the world, and we know audiences are eager and excited to discover Marc's fantastic vision for Peter Parker and the franchise."
I know many are weary about everything now being made in 3D and I’m definitely not that pumped about the idea for the next "Spider-Man." Sure, it’s great that they have the option to do it, but that doesn’t mean we have to have it.
But what can we expect of a 3D "Spider-Man"? Yeah...the hero shooting his web straight at us. Great...
Are you excited about the next "Spider-Man" becoming 3D? Should all superhero films be presented that way? Are there too many 3D films?
Production on the now untitled "Spider-Man" reboot will begin later this year. No casting has yet been announced.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
