GamePolitics – IGDA Working With FBI to Combat Developer Harassment – Good, so folks should be going to jail.

Rumors leading up to San Diego Comic-Con swirled that Sony‘s Sinister Six movie was cancelled, and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was in trouble. Both of those rumors have been squished like a bug, keeping up last year’s horrible record for pre-convention bullshit lies well-sourced information poor reporting.
Sinister Six will now open on November 11, 2016. The film is written and directed by Drew Goddard. Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 are being pushed back and will follow on an as-yet unspecified date in 2018 for 3, and 4… who knows.
In slides a movie based on the Uncharted video game which will be released June 10, 2016, when Spidey 3 was supposed to.
Disney and Marvel have taken advantage and claimed May 4, 2018 which was to be Spidey 4. That’s also the weekend of that year’s Free Comic Book Day. A “comic” movie has opened that weekend for a while now. That adds another movie to Marvel’s already announced 5 movies. So, add a sixth one…. can you say Avengers 3?
Planting flags for movie dates far in the future seems to be pretty popular now. I expect an Olympic Sport of it eventually.
A new trailer for Disney‘s Big Hero 6 has been released giving us an even better look at the movie. The characters are loosely based on Marvel characters. The movie is planned for release on November 7th.
Marvel is again taking advantage of its Disney family and have sent out a release that they’ll be announcing their “latest explosive” title on The View, Tuesday July 15 at 11am EST.
The View is a live, one-hour daily talk show from ABC and features Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. It’s the original forum in which real women discuss everyday issues, share their opinions and engage in colorful conversations. A perfect form to announce a new comic book series (though Whoopi has admitted being a comic book fan). The show airs in ABC, which is owned by Disney, which also owns Marvel.
Marvel actually hasn’t had the best luck spotlighting their comics this way. On a previous show, the talk went into DC Comics characters, on another show, The Chew, which is also on ABC talk went from Marvel to DC characters as well. We’ll see if the hosts of The View have got their talking points down this time and don’t plug the competition.
This fall, Big Hero 6 hits theaters courtesy of Disney. The characters first appear in Alpha Flight #17 by Marvel (owned by Disney), though you won’t see much mention of that so far in any of the promotional material.
Check out below for some newly released character posters.
