In what planet? The term "bombed movie" refers to those movies with a revenue inferior to their production cost. While that is true for both the 1989 and 2008 versions, the 2004 version didn't bomb.

Also, 100 million is a standard? For who? Studios don't have any defined standard, the expected revenue depends on cost of production, popularity of franchise, popularity of the actors, size of the studio, etc. Yes, 100 million is a small number considering the billions some movies make, but it's an arbitrary number you somehow retrieved Dagon knows from where.

clothing and actor make no difference.

Example: Spider-man 1-3 Tobey McGuire

The Amazing Spider-man Andrew Garfield & different costume, same company same rights.
Do you even read what you wrote?! SAME COMPANY. You even point out that Sony Pictures can do 6 movies based on Spiderman. Let's hypothesize that after the new Spiderman movies, Paramount or any other studio wants to do another Spiderman movie and Marvel grants the rights, just a different actor and design.

What would stop Marvel from reacquiring the rights of its own characters and what on earth would support Sony Pictures' case if they'd want to sue Marvel and the other studio for making a new movie based on Spiderman? The character is Marvel's and the image of Spiderman, which is what Sony Pictures bought from Marvel, is different and the image rights are only pertinent during the contract, so when the contract expires, what in the name of fuck would deter any other studio of doing a Spiderman movie?

Quote:
Sony has the rights for 6 movies, yeah expect 2 more Amazing Spider-man movies.( UNLESS IT BOMBS, which it won't)
Are you a prestidigitator to know what will bomb or not? Warner Brothers, Don Bluth, Dom DeLuise and Jonathan fucking Pryce (the guy was on Brazil, for Pete's sake) were hyping A Troll in Central Park. And it only rescued 0,33% of its production cost.

That said, it really depends on how the movie fares. Name alone won't make the money of production back.

So yeah, your wrong, just let it go.
I'm not wrong, I just corrected your stance. If Wolverine's image in Fox expired, your correction to Kael's post is unnecessary.
