Spider-Man spin-off films planned

Spider-Man spin-off films are planned

Spider-Man fans will be thrilled to hear that movie bosses are planning to develop a series of spin-offs.

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel -starring Andrew Garfield - is due out next year and there are further follow ups planned, and Sony have now confirmed that they will also be exploring other characters in the web-slinger's world, reported Deadline.

Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton said: "We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works."

There had already been rumours that spin-offs were in the pipeline after Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal dropped some hints during a presentation to investors.

"We are going to access Marvel's full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains," she said.

It has not been confirmed which characters might feature in the films.

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
