In case you haven't noticed, Hollywood is loving blockbusters at the moment. Superheroes, TV shows turned movies, remakes, fairytales — if you've got an idea, they'll listen, and if it's pre-packaged as a possibility to become a series, hell, that's even better. So, is it any wonder that Sony wants to exploit the rights to any Marvel properties they currently have the film rights to?

So this is going to be the new "thing" for superhero movies now? One isn't enough, so hot on the heels of Joss Whedon's $1 billion-grossing "The Avengers," and whatever Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman team-up movie is going to be called, director Marc Webb, while talking up next summer's 3D web-slinging adventure "Amazing Spider-Man 2," teased that the fourth film (yes, the fourth) in the franchise might be some kind of team-up movie. "It might not just be a Spider-Man movie," Webb told Crave Online. If it's not just a "Spider-Man" movie could we hope that it's also a "Star Trek" movie? Or maybe "Resident Evil?" Just so we can kill two franchise birds with one stone? At the very least it'd make the summer of 2018 go by a little quicker.

Welcome to the big time Sarah Gadon. Granted, she kinda already has after bagging the female lead for Universal's "Dracula," but the actress who has recently been cutting her teeth on Cronenberg father/son films ("A Dangerous Method," "Cosmopolis," "Antiviral") is now spinning an even bigger web.

Well, it looks like the series spawned by Marc Webb will accomplish what Sam Raimi failed to do: get to four films. With a trilogy long expected, the expansion to a fourth film is certainly big news -- especially when the second movie hasn't dropped yet -- and perhaps speaks to Sony's confidence in the series, or their desire not to be left behind in the superhero race.
