No.

But regarding that link, I'm pretty sure we saw that elsewhere in off-topic previously.  Maybe in the Random Thoughts thread?

Uh-oh, here comes Chuck Norris to merge the thread...

Was it?  I was trying to remember where I saw it first, and thought it was somewhere else.  Ah, well...

Here's my theory:
Marvel is getting all of its properties back and rebooting them ("The Incredible Hulk" and the just-announced "Punisher", for example) so that they can exist the shared Avengers Movie Universe they are creating. Sony must have still have the rights for more Spider-man movies, so they're going to reboot it while they still can so that when the rights defer back to Marvel, Marvel will be less likely to reboot it for the third time in a decade and Sony can still bank on their existing movies instead of having them erased by what would amount to be the "Official Marvel" version.
This is only my theory, but I think it makes sense business-wise.

That theory told me nothing about where to find the other post with the same link so I can berate xhonzi some more.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Wait, I know what happened!  Someone posted a link to worstpreviews.com in the "David Prowse Banned from Comic Con" thread which itself linked to the Bruce Wayne/Spiderman story.  I bet both Frink and I clicked on to that link and lol'd, but the link itself was never posted here.

That sounds made up.

I shall go and check, and meanwhile you should pray to Chuck that you are right.

Wow, I don't know how I missed that!  It's even on comicvine, lust like  mine.  And it says, Made by LemonHead on it.  Just like mine.

Almost.  The story as I understand it is kind of the reverse - Sony's license stated that a Spidey film had to be in production by a certain date or the rights would revert back to Marvel, which is why they were trying to push Spidey 4 along.  When Sam, Tobey and the rest walked because Sony was turning the film into another Spidey 3 by trying to cram a ton of stuff into it, Sony turned around and put the reboot concept into production.

This isn't about improving on what came before, nor is it related to Marvel's control over their other licenses.  This is about Sony holding onto the Spidey license, plain and simple.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

I think you're saying the same thing: Sony has to make another movie so they don't lose their option on the rights. 

And, since they are rushed for time with all of the main crew bailing on them, they are basically just dusting off the Batman Begins script and making that.

When you say Marvel, you mean Disney ? (If I don't mistake I remember they bought Marvel...)

Gott in himmel, another Punisher reboot?! This is going to be - what - the third time the franchise has been rebooted? What the fuck!

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.
