Spider-Man slings his web in 3D

According to Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing & Distribution, the next installment of Spider-Man will come to you in 3D. Set for a July 3, 2012 release date, the newly rebooted Spider-Man movie will be directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). Although a release date and director have been set, there is still no word yet on the cast. Early rumors have brought up names such as Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron to be the next Spider-Man. One name that was thought to be true was Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief). However, the rumors of Lerman being in talks with Sony to play Spider-Man was proven to be false when a representative of Sony Pictures said, “No offers have been made, nor have any business discussions been made with Lerman.”

Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko back in 1962 and made his first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15. It was Marvel's highest selling comic and was followed a year later by its own series, starting with Amazing Spider-Man #1. The title has becomes Marvel's top selling series. Today, a fairly mint condition issue of Amazing Fantasy #15 or Amazing Spider-Man #1 can fetch anywhere from $10,000 to well over $100,000 at auction.
