INT. TV STUDIO
Ritchie Steven (RS) and Kris Greet (KG) are in the Hollywood Times studio. They are standing in front of an Olympus Studio logo on a flat screen TV.
RS: What is up HTG Hollywood! RS and Kris here with another breaking news story. Hot off the heels of the announcement a few weeks ago of his acquisition of Olympus Studios. Kris is here to announce his newest franchise acquisition. Take it away Kris.
KG: Well, it has been a long road but I’m pleased to announce that this hero will finally make his HTG Debut. Take a look.
The flat screen comes to life and the Olympus Studio logo fades away and is replaced by a web, the web slowly forms the words SPIDER-MAN.
RS: That is awesome! So what’s in store for ol web-head?
KG: Well first let me see say that it’s a great personal thrill for me to be able to finally bring Spidey to HTG, I mean when you think of Marvel and DC. You think of Spidey and Superman as the main figureheads of those companies and now I have the chance to write both. But I’m doing something a little different. See Peter Parker will be my main Spider-Man but I feel like films on him have been sort of at the forefront lately. So I’m taking an approach of building the multi-verse of Spider-Man through a series of films similar to what we have done with the DC Showcase series.
RS: So have you decided on who’s going to be in the first film that the HTG audience will see?
KG: I have and I’m pleased to announce that the first Spider-Man to be seen will be Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099 and the second Spider-Man will be Spider-Man Noir which will be set in alternate universe during the prohibition era.
RS: Have you had a chance to think about casting yet?
KG: I have and in fact just this morning we closed a deal for Wilmer Valderama to play Miguel O’Hara and Milo Ventigmigla to play Spider-Man Noir.
RS: Wow, I was not expecting that. I like how you’ve gone with older actors to play the character.
KG: Well for me Peter is always going to be 16/17 when he gets his powers in his first appearance but I wanted to stay true to the comics and Miguel and Peter in the Noir universe were grown men when they got their powers so it was a natural choice.
RS: Well, I certainly look forward to seeing the debut of the web slinger…s! Thanks again for sharing this news with us and please do come back again if you have anything new to share.
KG: You’re always my first call dude.
