spider man 3d Spider Man Reboot Officially In 3D!

Sony Pictures has just officially announced that the new Spider-Man reboot will be in 3D. While rumors have been spreading for the past month saying that this might be a possibility, we’ve not yet had actual confirmation of it happening.

With Sony setting a release date of July 12, 2012 for the new Marc Webb directed Spidey, they have the ability to freely choose whether to use 3D cameras (like Avatar) or to convert it in post-production (like Alice in Wonderland). Well, we now know it will be coming to theaters in 3D.

Here’s the press release:

CULVER CITY, Calif., February 10, 2010 – Spider-Man will swing into theaters worldwide in 3D beginning July 3, 2012, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing & Distribution. The new film which is still untitled will begin production later this year directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin will produce the film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Commenting on the announcement, Blake said, “Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D. Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the world, and we know audiences are eager and excited to discover Marc’s fantastic vision for Peter Parker and the franchise.”

I know that everyone weary about everything now being made in 3D and I’m definitely not that pumped about the idea for the next Spider-Man. Sure, it’s great that they have the option to do it, but that doesn’t mean we have to have it. Still, I’m sure that Sony Pictures  will find an interesting way to use it and with 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb behind the camera, I trust him.

So, who’s going to break the news to James Vanderbilt that he has to go through his draft and put in a bunch of “…and Spider-Man shoots his web into the camera.” (You know it’s going to happen.)

Are you excited about Spider-Man taking to 3D? Should all superhero films be presented that way?

The now untitled Spider-Man reboot is set to hit theaters July 12, 2012.

  1. Although I'm not fond of a reboot, since I was growing fond of the cast of Saimi's version of the Spidey film movies, I do think 3D could work. Come on – if its 3D, we're all gonna get an awesome feel for New York. 3D means higher-budget stunts and more well choreographed web slinging so 3D will suck us into New York in the shoes of Spidey himself but I do agree – I didn't understand all the hype about Avatar. Sure, it had 3D but I hated the script and no matter how good the 3D was (well I've seen video games with better graphics), I still hate the movie because of the weak story which is so cliched. I heard Bendis had some involvement with the reboot so I think this could work since Bendis worked on the “Ultimate Spiderman” comics. The director himself did a good job in 500 Days of Summer so I think this might be a good thing but I still though Raimi's version was still not tied-up well.

    Anyway – I will watch the movie since I am a huge Spidey fan but things nower days is all about the movies – to be honest, the only good film I have watched in the last 2 years has to be Kick-Ass.

  2. don’t put Frank Dillane or Jamie Bell as Spider-Man because they both have accents.

  3. Josh Hutcherson would be just awesome for Spider-Man. No joke. Why would they put Frank Dillane or Jamie Bell as Spider-Man? Frank and Jamie have accents and not Josh. So please please please please Marc Webb, put Josh Hutcherson as the new Spider-Man. Thank you.

  4. this movie will suck with out Toby! everyone is not excited for this movie what so ever. I would love to know why the replacement? Toby to me Is SPIDERMAN! THIS MOVIE WILL SUCK!!!!!!!!

  5. this movie will suck with out Toby! everyone knows it. i would like to know why the replacement? BIG MISTAKE!!! THIS MOVIE WILL SUCK!!!!!!!!! TOBY IS SPIDEY!

  6. Andrew Garfield is officially the new Spider-Man. I just watched The Social Network today and that movie was good. I honestly think and know that Andrew Garfield will be the best Spider-Man and he will be way better than Tobey Maguire as Spidey. Let’s go Andrew Garfield. Tobey Maguire was good but getting older anyway. Hopefully we won’t get sick and tired of Garfield which we won’t. LOL!!!!!!!!!! Andrew Garfield will be the best Spidey without any doubt. However, we just have to wait and watch the movie at the theaters in order to find out if Garfield is the best Spidey or not.

  7. Oh god, shoot me now.

    A reboot?

    Wasn’t 1 2 and 3 the rebooted version of an old Spiderman?

    And omg, in 3D? *puke*

    I’ve had it with the 3D gimmick.

    I was looking forward to a continuation of the Spider Man story, but am so not interested in another reboot.

    Good bye spider man, I’m done with it.
