Sony, We’re Serious Here, Get Brian Bendis To Write Spider-Man 4

Posted by January 21, 2010 Comment

With all this fuss about Spider-Man 4, 5 and 6 being based on Brian Bendis and Mark Bagley’s Ultimate Spider-Man, here’s a reminder of something we proposed a few days ago – get Brian Bendis to write the damn thing!

He’s written the very work that you’re wanting to base the new run of movies on, he’s basically all but written a TV adaptation in the form of the animated series, and he’s written well received screenplays such as Torso.

And with news that Sony wants to bring the budget in under $80 million, he’d be perfect! Just have lots of Bendis stock-in-trade long dialogue scenes set around a kitchen table!

See? Come on, that would cost, what $50 to film, tops?

C’mon Sony, fly him out, have the meeting, and be prepared to be dazzled by his wit, repartee and forehead.

UPDATE: Oh look, here’s a Facebook group.
