But by the time Marvel did Incredible, Banner didn't get his gamma from a bomb, his crazy dad or his dead wife (despite Norton's Bixby homage), and they had already included the current print-comic retcon about using gamma to search for the Captain America formula with a minimum of explanation, as if true believers already knew it.
I hadn't been reading the current comics and didn't know that, but the movie's context didn't trip me up a bit. It just let me proceed from what I already knew and say, "Ah, okay, they've changed THAT."

The rumor is that Sony is tapping Drew Goddard to write and direct the next Spider-Man film, which could be titled Spectacular Spider-Man. Goddard had been the guy Sony picked to do the Sinister Six film before they threw in the towel and struck their deal with Marvel.

A protege of JJ Abrams, Goddard wrote and directed episodes of Lost and Alias as well as wrote Cloverfield and the film adaptation of World War Z. He's best known for writing and directing the hit horror film Cabin in the Woods. He was to serve as showrunner on Daredevil, having written the first couple of episodes and was executive producer, before Sony swayed him to do Sinister Six.

Interesting. And the rumor is that the movie would involve Tony Stark "recruiting him" into The Avengers, which would be a great way to give us something we haven't seen before in that regard.

Except for the Disney X-D series, of course. (And hopefully not as gratuitously goofy.)

Eh, the attempt to be a hyperactive 12-yo. series has made it "Peter Parker's Day Off", which has unfortunately infected and corrupted the rest of Man of Action's scripts for Disney XD. (We had to lose Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Assemble?? :( )

I keep hoping they'll spin off Disney XD series of Guardians/Galaxy or either version of Big Hero 6...and then I look at the shows they're doing now, and withdraw the question.
(And "Hulk & the Agents of SMASH"? Oh, dear gods, that's the edge of the freakin' cliff. :shock: )

I'd be up for a BH6 series, though I hope, like I said in my review, that they go the route of a home video line that could replace the Planes films at DisneyToon.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing an animated Spider-Man film (which takes place in a separate continuity from the Marvel Cinematic Universe) for July 20, 2018!!!!

I'm about all Spidey'd out already, but this sounds like excellent news. I hope this gets a decent budget.

Why do I have the feeling it'll be sort of like XD's aforementioned Ultimate Spiderman series, where Peter Parker can't go two minutes without making some random off-topic side-observation joke to the audience about nothing in particular, and then interrupting the action to illustrate it in a gag scene?

(Let's face it, the Ultimate series and Lord/Miller just sort of deserve each other, and you know I'm not saying that in the good way. :roll:
Sony, you're about to find out the hidden pitfalls of "But they did so well with Batman in the Lego Movie!")

I don't think this is going to come off very well, personally. The movie itself might be "fun", but there isn't a need and it's again starting to feel like desperation at this point.

I mean, Sony's going to benefit from Spidey turning up in MCU films, they're going to have their own stand-alone Spidey series that also plugs into the MCU but that they basically own...and now they want what is basically a competing movie/series with the same character?

Apart from audience confusion, there's going to be audience apathy and a sense of overkill. And you know what? After all the griping and hopes it would happen, I think it's going to be the stand-alone films that Marvel have their hand in that ultimately fail...

This is just too much...too much.

This is exciting because of who's involved. Given how funny these guys made Batman, I'd love to see what they do with Spidey.

And what they did to Green Lantern certainly wasn't worse than what Warner did to him. Comparatively speaking, of course. :x
