Variety reports on the intense studio competition to stake out prime summer release dates in advance, with current turf wars extending out to summer 2010 already.
According to the article Sony is laying claim to dates in that year for 'Spider-Man 4'. While the long-discussed 'Green Hornet' movie is shaping up for a Summer 2009 release.
Warner Bros. was more cagey with execs claiming they don't date fims that aren't greenlit. Therefore they're keeping mum on such films as 'Superman: The Man of Steel' and 'Justice League'. However they do point to 'Watchmen' as a near-future possibility.
