While James Cameron is currently making headlines with his work Avatar: Water RoadFans also got a look at what he’s been planning for Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Cameron is best known for his incredible success in blockbuster franchises, though he’s largely absent from the superhero game as Marvel and DC continue to climb to new heights. However, sometime in the mid-1990s, the writer/director wrote a screenplay for an R-rated Spider-Man movie, which was considering casting future Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio for Peter Parker and Arnold Schwarzenegger for Doctor Octopus.
This Spider-Man movie could have offered a darker look at Peter’s origin story after he encounters the classic spider-bite, balancing his high school life with superhero responsibilities as every Peter Parker encounter has to do.
Now, as Cameron celebrates his billions of dollars at the box office Avatar 2two pieces of concept art circulated online highlighting his ideas for Marvel’s web-slinger 30 years earlier.
James Cameron’s Spider-Man concept surfaces
Two new pieces of artwork by director James Cameron have circulated online after being shared on social media by SlashFilm’s Chris Evangelistawhich features Cameron as Spider-Man from a canceled 1990s solo movie.
The illustrations, created by Cameron himself, are from his 2021 book, Tech Noir: The Art of James Cameron.
Although the details are hard to see, the white eyes of Spider-Man’s mask shine, as his appearance is more or less accurately replicated from the comics. Some of the webbing on his suit can be seen running down his left arm, as he climbs up the side of a building in New York City and can only see a little blue on his leg.
The same image is repeated in a darker blue color, which makes the eyes of Spidey’s mask stand out more prominently over his darker suit. It’s unclear if Peter wore a black suit that has been used in other comics and movies or if this is just a different take on the original image.
Will James Cameron join Superhero Movie World?
While these two images only show a small tease of what Cameron would have done with Marvel’s web-slinger, the idea of seeing a Spider-Man movie under his watch has many wondering what it could have been. Especially with the director’s success in other popular 90’s movies like Terminator 2 And the Titanica darker take on Marvel’s most popular hero is something that was sure to pique fans’ interest.
This also came at a time when the superhero genre was nothing like what it is today, like Wesley Snipes code It was still a few years away from debuting and setting a new standard for comic book movies. However, Cameron has always been one to push the standards for what movies can do from a visual standpoint, which makes the idea of a Spider-Man movie interesting if he can bring the web-swinging and wall-crawling to life on a grand scale. Monitor.
Now, with three different iterations of Spider-Man hitting theaters in the 21st century, fans can only look back on such bits as they imagine what Cameron would have done with a more mature Spidey outing. Whether he’s helming a superhero project in the future remains a mystery, though he’ll always be in talks with the Marvel side of things due to his box office success alone.
