Keep a lookout for Amazing Spider-Man movie spinoffs

One of the few Marvel comic book characters not controlled by Disney is Spider-Man, of which Sony’s Columbia Pictures unit owns the movie making license.

Apparently, the studio is looking at the success Disney is having with the Avengers franchise and is looking to expand Spidey by expanding other characters from the Spider-Man series into having their own movies, according to reports.

“We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works,” said Sony Pictures’ CEO Michael Lynton.

According to Deadline he also added that the studio was “working closely with Marvel and Disney” to make it happen.

The CEO’s comments come after his colleague, co-chairman Amy Pascal hinted that the studio would be branching out into other character films.

“We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Men characters,” she said according to The Wrap. “So be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.”
