It's a new year, and speculation about the future is popular here.
Do you guys have any Spider-Man related predictions about 2013?
An actor will be cast as Norman Osborn for a small role in Amazing Spider-Man 2 and a bigger part in Amazing Spider-Man 3. It will either be Jamie Foxx's Django buddy Christoph Waltz, or Homeland's Damien Lewis. Sony may try to keep it a surprise, sort of like Nick Fury's appearance in the first Iron Man. But it's going to leak out, sort of like Nick Fury's appearance in the first Iron Man.
Ryan Stegman will have a very good year. He's done exceptional work on Scarlet Spider, and the first arc of Superior Spider-Man is his most high-profile run to date. He's a rare guy with a style that can draw in new readers, without alienating anyone, much like John Cassady. So he'll field big offers from Marvel and DC. Spider-Man fans may lose him.
There will be rumors about Sony and Disney making a deal to allow Spidey to join the cinematic Avengers. This will happen regardless of whether there is any such deal.
Superior Spider-Man will be a lot of fun. There will be something big, in a New Ways to Die sort of way, for the third TPB. And by the end of 2013, they'll be laying the seeds for Peter Parker's return.
