In Desperation News: Item #2

The already-infamous Spider-Man 4 will be released in July 3-D!

Exciting! Innovative! Gimmick!



SPIDER-MAN 4??? You serious?? Whose the villians in it? And do you know anything on the new batman?

I have two previous posts on the Spidey 4 issue. First, Raimi and Maguire dropped out over never-ending script disputes. Then they hired a new director in the form of Marc Webb. Now, the 3-D thing. I keep feeling like this is a disaster waiting to happen. A franchise reboot that will confuse viewers who shelled out hundreds of millions to one of the most successful comic book film franchises of a new director...with a newer, younger cast...same story, but a different story...all in 3-D?!?!?

See, you're probably confused already.

No word yet on the villains...or the kid who's gonna play the "younger" Spidey. And as for the new's rumored for 2011, but gimme a break -- that ain't happenin'. I'd say summer 2012 for that one, at earliest. No real announcements about the script yet, let alone the cast.

Personally, I can't wait for The Green Hornet (due in December), simply for the eclectic audacity of its cast and crew. Seth Rogen in the lead, with a script by Rogen and Evan Goldberg...directed by Michel Gondry. And who is playing the villain?

None other than soon-to-be-Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz.

Yeah, it's that kind of awesome.
