Russo Bros. Offered To Produce Sony's SPIDER-MAN Films; Will Direct INFINITY WAR

The Brazilian website, overtice.com.br, has uncovered more leaked Sony emails. These include an offer from the Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo to produce Sony's Spider-Man films. Hit the jump to check this out.

The real juicy stuff are from the discussions between Sony Entertainment Chairman Amy Pascal and the Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo that took place last month. The Russo brothers begin their email to Pascal with, "A pity that negotiations with Marvel did not work." They're referring to the proposed deal with Marvel Studios that would have brought Spider-Man into the Marvel cinematic universe by giving him a cameo in Captain America: Civil War. They then let Pascal know that they will be directing Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2,  but that obligation won't prevent them from directing The Gray Man beforehand for Sony. Then on November 17, Joe Russo sent Pascal an email offering to have him and his brother produce Sony's Spider-Man films through their newly-formed production company, Bullitt. He acknowledges that a "difficult conversation" would have to take place with current Spider-Man producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, but Russo says it would be a "conversation worth having." As far as overtice.com.br knows, Pascal never replied to Russo's offer. Keep in mind, Sony's computer system was shutdown just a week after Russo sent that email, so Pascal very well could have by now.

Brazilian website, overtice.com.br, came across some other great tidbits. In previous emails, Pascal begged Sam Raimi to help her with Spidey but in another email she tells a Sony exec that she doesn't need his help because he went "Joel Schumacher on the third." I'm sure Raimi won't like being compared to the Batman & Robin director. In a separate email, Avi Arad begs Pascal to give him the green light on a Venom movie because the toys and video games based on the character are popular. Lastly, Motion Picture Group President Jeff Robinov warns Pascal not to make a deal with Marvel, but you have to question his advice as he still thinks Stan Lee can create more characters in the Spider-Man universe for Sony.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier. Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is produced by Kevin Feige, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp and Hayley Atwell, with Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Yeah, seriously. Drop Avi Arad like a sack of shit. Moron should've been fired in 2007.

This situation is just sad.

Why is it so hard for Sony to produce a great Spiderman movie? You have years of comics and cartoons to do a movie justice.... Hell just turn Amazing Spiderman into a live action movie.... They are doing the most.... Just give it back to Marvel and stop wasting time.

Take it easy.



Sad that Whedon won't be returning. I would have liked AoU to release before that decision was made. His mindset could change from now to then if it was a matter [of uncertainty] of being able to handle the project.

Avi Arad is the dumb*** that told Sam Raimi to add Venom to the story, that wasn't Sam's idea. It was just going to be Sandman.

Avi Arad keeps on trying to shove Venom down Sony's throats even after the massive [frick]up on Spiderman 3. Old fart doesn't learn his lessons.

BTW, the Russos producing Spiderman would be [frick]ing awesome. Only the dummies at Sony would balk at that proposition. They should have immediately dumped Arad and went with those two guys.

Bring him back to Marvel so the Russos can have a shot.

I don't want them to recast Andrew Garfield, man.

Uuuuuugh.

Mostly because I'd feel so bad for the guy if it happened. He isn't the problem.

Robinov is still butthurt after getting destroyed by Marvel when he was running WB. Arad is an idioit as always.
