Sony Pictures, in association with Marvel Entertainment have announced that several new “Spider-Man” projects/spinoffs are now in development with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon and Drew Goddard who have been brought on to oversee developing stories for VENOM and SINISTER SIX movies that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach.

Kurtzman, Orci and Solomon will write the screenplay for Venom, which Kurtzman will direct. Goddard will write and possibly direct  The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise. Also, Sony announced that Kurtzman, Orci and Jeff Pinkner are writing the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 with hopes that Marc Webb will return to direct. All of this is the beginning stage of the expanding universe that will be built around The Amazing Spider-Man movies.

Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad had this to say about the newly forged creative power team;

 “The Spider-Man film franchise is one of our studio’s greatest assets. We are thrilled with the creative team we have assembled to delve more deeply into the world that Marc, Avi and Matt have begun to explore in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We believe that Marc, Alex, and Drew have uniquely exciting visions for how to expand the Spider-Man universe in each of these upcoming films.”

Producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach followed with this;

“This collaboration was born out of the great experience we and Marc had working with Alex, Bob, and Jeff on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With more than fifty years’ wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless; in addition, the Spider-Man comics have the greatest rogues gallery of any series, and to have the chance to explore that on film is truly thrilling. Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story. That is what Alex, Bob, Jeff, Ed, and Drew will do in this unprecedented collaboration, and we’re excited about the directions they are taking the character and the world.”

Sounds like another major game plan to me! What do you think?
