Via PR, Spider-Man will be swinging in to the growing legion of films released in 3D. James Cameron, your work here is done.

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.”

  1. 3D, who cares? As long as J.K. Simmons is on board as Jameson, there’s hope.

  2. As to who cares about 3D – well how about everyone who made Avatar the number one movie of all time (not accounting for inflation or increased ticket prices)? Now with the success of Avatar 3D, more movie studios will try to make more of these type of movies because that experience is harder to steal off the internet.

    I just wish the Avatar story was a tenth as good as the effects were (and I got bored by the effects after a point also). Effects heavy movies almost always favor a story that will create effect sequences over character or plot development so I don’t expect Spidey 4 to actually have much in the way of a story. But what do I know, people are still going to these block-buster movies so Hollywood doesn’t care what kind of movie I want.

  3. Who’s taking bets on some prominent shot being Spiderman splooging his webfluid at the audience?

  4. As a character best known for swinging around tall buildings and launching stuff from his hands, Spider-Man is practically designed for 3-D.

    Okay, it’s a little harder to portray his spider-sense. For that you’d need one of those special rigged theaters like the one they used for that Star Trek: Voyager ride in Las Vegas.

  5. “Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D.”

    Hmm … ok … I forsee in the near future me being one of those people who claim “I don’t go to the movies anymore.”

  6. “Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D.”

    We don’t have a screenplay, director, or cast yet, but it’s going to be the ultimate summer movie-going experience!

  7. Actually they have a director (Mar Webb) and a script.

    But knowing that they want to do a smaller more intimate movie mainly about Peter Parker dealing with High School issues, why oh why do this in 3D? And is a teen comedy going to be the ultimate summer movie-going experience? It seems like their strategy is all over the place.
    And with a budget rumored at 80 mil I wonder how much 3D there’s going to be in it anyway.

    Wasn’t part of the reason Sam Raimi left because he wanted to make the film in 3-D (inspired by watching Avatar) and didn’t think he’d be able to make the original May 2011 release date…?

    Yes, I know him and Sony were also quibbling over the Vulture, so there was obviously more than 1 reason for him leaving. I’m just saying…

    Spidey would look cool in 3D. I hope the director (and storyboard artist, DOP, Cinematographer, etc) doesn’t go nuts with quick cutting and whirling steadicam angles.

    We goes to see these summer action movies to enjoy them, and we likes our Coke and popcorn to take a one way trip and stay resting in our tummies, we does.
