Because James Cameron has made a lot of money, he’s Hollywood Jesus. It makes sense. They worship money, he has a lot of money which means he’s kind of like he’s the son of money, and that makes him their messiah. So everyone wants him to bless their upcoming projects and now it seems Sony actually got him to do it.

MTV says director Marc Webb and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot team crawled up out of Satan’s lair, ascended to heaven, and met with James Cameron. The topic? 3D. Cameron’s St. Peter, Jon Landau, says that Webb “wants to do the next one in 3-D, which they’ve announced that they want to do. So, we want to try to support that as much as possible.”

That’s good news for the one or two of you who actually want to see this sure to be horrible Spider-Man reboot movie and who aren’t yet sick of watching movies in 3D. At least Spidey’s 3D will suck less than the slapdash 3D being used on movies like Clash of the Titans. Me? I don’t care how many pairs of glasses they make me wear, unless Spider-Man actually shoots webbing out of the screen and swings over the theater, I couldn’t be less interested in seeing him go back to high school. Been there, done that.

Call me cynical, but I can’t help wondering whether this might be less about picking Cameron’s brain for 3D techniques than it is about Sony trying to get fanboys on their side by throwing the name of the guy who made Avatar around in conjunction with their reboot. They could use some good PR, their Spider-Man redo is almost universally reviled. Now Avatar L.A.R.P.ers everywhere are suddenly on board with their horrible Spider-Man idea. It’s not like they can think for themselves.
