i think sony even in their fumbling ignorance and incompetence has potential, not a lot. Like a diamond in a pile of shit, if they work closely with Feige and Marvel studios they could turn the franchise around. Let them keeping making the films though, that way Spiderman movies dont interfere with Marvel's lineup
BigFoster - 12/13/2014, 4:30 PM
Amazing Spiderman can still work. focus on Goblin and introduce the black suit but keep the suit on the entire movie, then move forward on venom and carnage
MercWithAGun - 12/13/2014, 4:31 PM
I question any person if they didn't vote for one of the final two.

I'll say it early. Welcome home Spiderman. ;)
DevarikaWoulf - 12/13/2014, 4:37 PM
I refuse to watch any more Spider-Man films from Sony unless they get like 9 out of 10 reviews. Anything below a 9 is not getting my money. Since I don't think they are smart enough to do so, I voted for Marvel to take over.
Mrsinister - 12/13/2014, 4:37 PM
I think they should do a soft reboot. Spiderman has so many good stories that dont include anyother heroes. either way ill be happy though.....

As long as the people invloved in the last one arent involved ill be happy

Anyone see what that guy RogerWardell2 said on twitter tonight??

...all this leaks, rumors, reports....its starting to f*ck with my feels.
Samssun - 12/13/2014, 4:45 PM
Spiderman IS marvel. So Sony, return him home.
Ramiel - 12/13/2014, 4:49 PM
The people have spoken, Sony. Give Spidey back to Marvel

Keep Andrew and send him to Marvel. Nuff said.
massdeath - 12/13/2014, 4:54 PM
Anyione who thinks Sony knows what they are doing after these leaks is insane. There is only one plce Spidey belongs: Marvel!
ScarletWarlock - 12/13/2014, 4:55 PM
As much as I liked SOME of the things in Amazing Spder-Man 2 they need to drop it like a sack of puppies, move on and give to Marvel ASAP, I sincerely don't give two shits about the dangling threads left, I just feel bad for Marc Webb who was interfered by the studio to put in Sinister Six when they aren't even going to continue, just ridiculous. Now that I know theres a chance of Spidey going to Marvel, Sony is in for a rude awakening if they think they're getting my money.
Also, do they not think the general audience, who are usually pretty shallow and stupid, would be pissed off at another reboot, especially since they just do it out of nowhere and people will have no clue because Amazing Spiderman 2 ended on a cliff hanger. This is just BAD, just a bad, bad, bad move. So not only are fans most likely going to boycott the next series, thats if Sony goes through with it, but people will lose interest because its another reboot. The only thing that can make a reboot acceptable, even in the eyes of the general audience, is to reboot him in the MCU. And not just because they know what they're doing, but I'm pretty sure everyone wanted Spider-Man to interact with the rest of the group.

Spider-man + Marvel = Success. It's time to come home.
LeaderVladimir - 12/13/2014, 5:02 PM
Am I the only one who thinks Sony should finish The Amazing Spider-Man trilogy? Come on, we know ASM2 wasn't as good as hoped, but it sure had a lot of untapped potential.
RedRobinDC - 12/13/2014, 5:03 PM
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was my favorite Spider-Man movie, and did live up to my hopes.
Fougio - 12/13/2014, 5:04 PM
i think only the marvel zombies voted
AlexdoxA - 12/13/2014, 5:15 PM
If they keep the franchise, I hope Sony pulls a Fox by creating a soft reboot a la Xmen First Class.
JimmyPesto - 12/13/2014, 5:16 PM
60/40
60% Marvel, 40% Sony.

A little bit of something is better than a lot of nothing.
NerdMan - 12/13/2014, 5:17 PM
We already know what the answer is :

its simple..kill the batman
Inhuman - 12/13/2014, 5:23 PM
Everyone should be picking the last option
Chloefornication - 12/13/2014, 5:24 PM
People wanting Marvel to take over Spider-Man can't be serious. Or they are just not thinking straight. We are talking about Marvel. You know, that company that has been [frick]ing spider-man right up in the ass for decades now in the comics. That Marvel that will never let the character grow the [frick] up and evolve and change his status quo. That Marvel that fails to make interesting and great stories for this character because they just won't let the character evolve.

No wonder Feige wants a movie about Peter struggling to balance his TEENAGE life with his superhero life. TEENAGER. Marvel will never let Peter Parker grow up and Disney will want to cast a pretty actor to play Peter, like Thor. Don't get delusional. Spidey has to be saved by somebody else, not Marvel. When it comes to Spidey Marvel IS the big villain.

Sony already did two wonderful movies in the past. Do I have to remind you that one of them is considered one of the best superhero films of all time? They can do it again IF they hire EXPERIENCED, talented and creative directors and writers and get rid of those shitty producers. Arad is done. IF and only IF they do this, they will do more good for this character than Marvel ever could. Marvel did Thor and Thor 2 and Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3. Don't forget about that. Marvel will sufocate and kill SM just like they did in the comics and now Disney will make it even worse.

Just get good, Sony. Get good and do something good for the character with talented minds behind the project.
Mercwitham0uth - 12/13/2014, 5:31 PM
Last option obviously.
UltimateHunt - 12/13/2014, 5:33 PM
The last option, hands down
RexDartEskimoSpy - 12/13/2014, 5:40 PM
Next poll:

Nazis?

.The best!

.Good

.Okay

.Bad

.Really really bad!
ThePowerCosmic - 12/13/2014, 5:47 PM
I think it would be the best thing for the character to have him show up in Civil War but Marvel would need complete control not Sony.

The only issue would be why haven't we seen Spidey in the MCU before or heard about him?

For him to just show up in a cameo would be strange for such a huge character.

I don't think the MCU needs Spiderman or X-Men at all, but I do think they need the Fantastic Four universe and villains.
Joementum - 12/13/2014, 5:55 PM
Have the North Koreans hacked this site???
jsop4 - 12/13/2014, 5:59 PM
Yes I would love for marvel to get Spiderman back but powercosmic is right, Fantastic Four is actually more crucial and would be better in their current lineup. How great would a secret invasion movie be with the Skrulls to cap off phase 4?
GhastlyDemise - 12/13/2014, 6:01 PM
@Chloefornication

You honestly think that Feige wouldn't recognize the amount of fanboys bitching inanely about how they've done two series that spectacularly failed when push came to shove and decide not to reboot with his character somewhat established? They follow story arcs, and as the actor they cast would grow and change it'd be silly not to have his character grow with the story. Keeps the same actor in the role and allows for Marvel to really get into the coming of age stuff.

You seem to be confusing Marvel Studios with Marvel Comics. It's the difference between an elephant and an elephant seal (points if you catch the reference), or Fox Studios and Fox News. Peter hasn't done anything interesting in the comics in years, this is true. But there haven't been too many developments in the story for any of the Marvel COMICS universe either since Civil War, imo.

What other two wonderful movies are you referring to? If it's that Spider-Man 2 film, that's DEFINITELY a matter of opinion. Toby McGuire and Kirsten Dunst chemistry wasn't some large scale magnitude explosion, it fizzled, again imo. If referring to the first Amazing Spider-Man, the overall pace of that film dragged on like a horse with a crippled leg and The Lizard was botched. If we're going by track record strictly in a corporate sense, they [frick]ed up 3/5 films by your own admition while Marvel would've [frick]ed up 3/10. 70% is still a passing grade, but 40% is definitely a failure.

Now if we were to stage this in what ought to matter, the talent and execution, the story doesn't change. It's clear the same folks who botched those films are still those in charge, and until Sony flounders I don't see that changing. Under Sony's banner, we'd see Aunt May and girlfriend centric spinoff films. Why? Simple, they have no sense of direction with the series because they don't get the character.

To put this all back into context. I'm not defending Disney. The fact that they've bought our collective childhood infuriates me greatly. But I've enjoyed all of Marvel's films. While Iron Man 3 might not have been the best film, it had moments that certainly kept it from being low on the charts. I enjoyed Thor 2, just needed more build up for the villains and less of Portman's sidekick.

Summary: Marvel should get Spidey, Sony should get a slice (as much as I hate that idea), and Avi Arad should be placed in a bunker 6 miles below surface in an area where neither he or his terrible ideas will ever see the light of day.
TheManSpiderman - 12/13/2014, 6:07 PM
It'd be hilarious if Marvel Studios go Spiderman back, and put Tobey back under the mantle. I would love that so much.
CaptainAmerica31 - 12/13/2014, 6:10 PM
If don't reboots it and let's go of Arad and Tolmach that will solve a lot of problems. I don't care if it goes back to marvel, they need to find a way to work it
wbrowning79 - 12/13/2014, 6:32 PM
Its good that these polls exist. Its also good that people care about seeing the marvel universe characters and spider-man together rather than spider-man become a resident evil type of franchise.
sKeemAn - 12/13/2014, 6:36 PM
Pretty [frick]ing obvious if you ask me!
smgmayhem - 12/13/2014, 6:46 PM
I want Marvel to have their property back and give it the proper justice it deserves. If they did get Spider-Man back they could use his movie to start of a whole new era of superheroes in phase 4 after the infinity wars. Think about it, a new group of Avengers living in the legacy of the first team of Avengers and how they saved the earth. Make them legendary.
ClintKent - 12/13/2014, 6:48 PM
Sony has dropped the ball in so many ways with Spiderman they should have to give the rights back. Who the hell wants an Aunt May movie???? Just proves they are morons.
