Keep in mind Osborn was working on super soldier projects too and that had fuck all to do with the Avengers.

Leterrier wanted to have a small Peter Parker cameo in Incredible Hulk but Sony wouldn't let him.
Then he tried to give that university in New York the name it has in the Spider-Man comics but they wouldn't even let him do that (despite the fact they didn't even use that name in the Spidey movies).

They're rather anal about this it seems.

Best case I've heard yet for keeping their sandboxes separate. =P

It's just painfully unnecessary at this point, and really restricts the stories that can be told when you're not weighed down by telling their backstory again for the thousandth time.
Also, I agree with this.

I'm really tired of all these drawn-out "How do I shot web" stories. The second Hulk did it right imo. Show the origin story in the opening scene, then just jump straight into the story.

I'd be more excited about this Spidey movie if I didn't think that a) a reboot so soon is stupid and b) using it to tell an origin story *again* is retarded. I don't even care that this is a different take on Spidey's origins, I don't want to go through that shit again.

Man speaks sense.

I hope when DC gets around to doing Batman films without Nolan they don't stuff another goddamn origin story again. I do without another batman film that goes through all of the "MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAAAAD" shit again.

Let's focus on Batman being an insane over the top ninja sherlock holmes please.

Tbh, I'd be interested in seeing an adaptation of Arkham Asylum of some sort.

It'd have to be animated.

The story just doesn't have the same kind of mass market appeal as others.

Unless you mean the game, then idk how I would feel about that.

A Serious House on Serious Earth please.

Personally I'd die of nerdbliss if I ever found out Neil's "what ever happened to the batman" story got a movie deal.

Same situation.

No film studio or producer would go for a Batman film with an emphasis on dialogue, clever sometimes subtle writing, and almost no action at all.

Just not enough mass market appeal to justify the cost of the project.

Ew, no.

I never saw the second, but the first is enough to make me squick.

Steer clear.

I remember seeing trailers for the second Ghost Rider and saying to my friends: "How the fuck did this movie get a sequel deal?"
