Spider-Man Games Deal

This Activision Investor Relations Press Release (thanks Frans) reveals plans to continue to create game tie-ins with the Spider-Man movie series through the year 2017 (at which point actor Tobey McGuire will be 42 years old). Word is:

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov 29, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that the company has signed an agreement with Spider-Man Merchandising L.P., a limited partnership between Marvel Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: MVL) and Sony Pictures Consumer Products Inc., to extend its exclusive worldwide publishing rights to the phenomenally successful Spider-Man(R) motion pictures through 2017. The license grants Activision the right to publish entertainment software products based on subsequent Spider-Man(R) movie sequels or new television series.

Under its current agreement with Spider-Man(R) Merchandising, Activision will develop and publish interactive entertainment games based on Columbia Pictures/Marvel Entertainment, Inc.'s upcoming feature film "Spider-Man(R) 3," which is set for release in May 2007. To date, Activision has published games based on "Spider-Man(R)" and "Spider-Man(R) 2".

Who cares?

You cared enough to reply.

Anyway, the cool part about being 2017 is my boy will be around 14 years old and hopefully a gamer.

Who cares? My father is 57 and he's a hardcore gamer like me. I'm 34 been gaming online since Qtest.exe (10 years ago) not counting Doom. Luckily we have learned to balance gaming with regular life so that we aren't complete losers. We still love that gaming though I'll be gaming for life.

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.

I see... surprisingly a thread you hadn't commented in but remembered nonetheless!

I remembered the X-Men and the year 2017, so it kinda stood out...

That, or it's ground hog day.

Bad joke, I know.

I submitted this edit: a duplicate back on Nov 13th.
As seen on Newsarama (talk about your long term deals!):

Edited for length. And to acknowledge my tardiness/duplication.
