DOES WHATEVER A SPIDER CAN: Because of hopes for money and in order to prevent rights to reverting to Marvel/Disney, Sony has said we can expect a new Spider-Man universe film every year. Because of the post-production schedule and Andrew Garfield's desire to do something other than play Peter Parker in his life, the current plan is to fill it out with villain-centric films in the off-years. However, news that Marvel is planning a massive crossover in which all Spider-Men from all continuities will have to unite (apparently including Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham) gives me an alternate idea--why not do different "universes" in different years, with even numbered years giving us Peter Parker films, and odd numbered years giving us a different Spider-Man (the logical choice is current Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales)? Would audiences accept this sort of thing, or would it just be confusing?
