If the critics like The Amazing Spiderman, that's what will bump exposure. It's one of the most recognizable names in all of CB's and CBM's so it's already going to garner tickets opening weekend alone from just that.

They agree to let another studio use one of their flagship properties and they hand over the associated brand recognition, which is what they do not want.

Oh, please. IMDB's "Most Anticipated" list is so full of **** its eyes have turned brown. They've got schlock like GI Joe, MIB III, The Dictator, The Expendables and even frickin' Battleship ranked in the top six, and that's nowhere close to what Most Anticipated lists on other sites are showing.

In any event, *even* on the IMDB list, TASM isn't even ON the list, so it's not being anticipated at all. And that *does* correspond with what other magazines/websites are reporting.

Face it: TASM has an uphill battle to win over Raimi fans, as well as fans who simply lost interest after the Spidey 3 fiasco. It's like TIH trying to gain some traction just a few short years after Ang Lee's Hulk bombed --- didn't work very well there at all.

Regardless of whether you believe Sony and MS would be willing to get into bed over merchandising rights, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why TASM could use some cross-promotion.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
