Marvel President Wanted To Burn THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2's Script After Reading It

In an email from 2012, Marvel President Alan Fine explains to Tom Cohen (Marvel's VP of Production who acts as an intermediary between them and Sony) all of the problems with The Amazing Spider-Man 2. "I wanted to burn the draft after I read it, never mind thinking about buying the DVD."


@TheMCUExchange have posted some screengrabs of even more leaked "Sony Hack" emails from two years ago in which Marvel President Alan Fine tears apart the divisive The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He makes a lot of really good points, but makes himself look somewhat foolish in a rambling paragraph which indicates that he's under the belief that these movies are/should be prequels to Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy! Forgive that though, and there's no denying that his harsh review of the sequel's script is spot on. Why repeat so much of what we've seen before? Why kill of Gwen Stacy so soon? Why does the villain need a convoluted origin story tied into Spider-Man? 

The depressing thing here is that both Fine and Cohen provided Sony Pictures with notes and they made absolutely no difference whatsoever. This was sent months after The Amazing Spider-Man earned $750 million compared to The Avengers' $1.5 billion, but Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci all clearly thought they knew better. I think it's fair to now say that they didn't! Check out the emails below and share your thoughts on these comments below.
