Final Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Arrives

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 22, 2014 in Cinema, Comic Books


Sony Pictures has released the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which features about as much bombastic action and special effects as you can fit into a 2 minute and 40 second timeframe. It definitely looks like Spider-Man! I hope it will be better than the first film, but the huge amount of villains does make me wary. We have heard that the Rhino is barely in the film though (apparently only 5 minutes) so not only does that lighten up the load, it also means that we’ve probably seen a third of the total footage of the Rhino in trailers and teasers! Check out the full trailer below. Read more…

Spidey Swings In On a New Clip of Electro

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 3, 2014 in Cinema, Comic Books


Straight from the New Year’s celebration comes this new clip of Amazing Spider-Man 2, featuring shots of Spidey, Electro, and 1.2 seconds of the Rhino. Of course, it’s all set in Times Square. Also, am I alone in noticing how… video game-y this trailer looks? I’m not sure if it’s the over-saturation or the glossy effects, but everyone looks like a CGI model. Rhino also didn’t look great for his brief appearance. At least Spidey is wise-cracking, though! I’m worried about all these villains, still, as I’m not sure Marc Webb can pull it off. Read more…



Sony Confirms Sinister Six, Venom Spin-offs Of Amazing Spider-Man

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 14, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


Keen eyes may have noted two interesting hints in the recent trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. At one point, you can see suits in the background that look like they might be intended for Vulture and Doctor Octopus. And with Electro being one of the main villains in the next movie, it’s easy to imagine a scenario where some other villains join these three to form the Sinister Six, perhaps even the Green Goblin/Hobgoblin and Rhino that are appearing in next May’s movie. Well, Sony just confirmed that they’ll be producing two spin-off movies: The Sinister Six and Venom, the latter of which has been rumored for years. Read more…

First Trailer for Amazing Spider-Man 2 Swings In

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 6, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


After teasing fans with posters of the villains and even releasing a teaser trailer for a trailer, the actual honest-to-god Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer is out. It features lots of footage of the Green Goblin, and a surprisingly tame amount of Electro. I thought he was supposed to be the main villain, but apparently we really are getting three baddies in the film. I hope they’re thought this through, as the last Spider-Man film with three villains didn’t really go so well. It definitely feels a bit cheesier to me, oozing a bit more “comic bookyness” that the first one. Spider-Man is one of my favorite superheroes, so I’d really like for this to be good… although I’m not counting on it. Read more…

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Posters Tease Next Trailer

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 4, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 posters

There are blurry posters and trailers out there for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, so it makes sense that Sony is putting out the official posters and trailers this week. That image up above is all three posters, showing off Rhino, the Green Goblin, and Electro; click the image to check it out full-res, because they do look great. The trailer is coming out Thursday, so that’s something for fans to look forward to. In the meantime, Sony also released four stills of the movie. Check them out below while you wait for the trailer. Still, I doubt this movie will be as good as the original Spider-Man 2. Read more…

New Amazing Spider-Man 2 Poster Reveals Villains

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 30, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


We’ve known about Electro being in Amazing Spider-Man 2 for a while now, and we’ve seen set photos of The Rhino, but one other certain villain that might show up in the film has popped up on a new poster. If you’ve been paying attention to various reports, leaks, and set photos it’s not too big of a surprise, but I wasn’t sure they’d really bring a third villain into the film. Hopefully it can avoid the mess that was Spider-Man 3! If you don’t want the third villain spoiled for you, don’t click through. Otherwise, bombs away! Read more…



This is The Amazing Spider-Man With a Firefighter’s Helmet On

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 10, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


Yup. Some new promotional images were sent out to hype up The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and while most of them were pretty standard, one really stood out to me: Spider-Man wearing a firefighter’s helmet. It appears he’s putting out a fire, yes, but why would he take the time to put the helmet on? Maybe we’re getting a bit more of that goofy, snarky Spider-Man I love? That’d be nice! Otherwise, there are also images of Electro (aka electric blue Jamie Foxx) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). We’ll also see Harry Osborn this time around ( Dane DeHaan), so I wonder if they’ll be introducing the Green Goblin soon? Read more…



Hasbro Toys Tease Looks of Future Spider-Man Villains

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 11, 2013 in Cinema, Hobbies and Collections


With the Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the way along with Transformers: Age of Extinction, Hasbro is gearing up their toy lines to coincide with the movies. Often times, the result is that the public’s first looks at characters is in toy form. So with Hasbro’s party recently, a lot of pics came out showing figures of the Green Goblin, Carnage, and Black Cat. We know Carnage isn’t in the next film, and we’ve only heard rumors of the Green Goblin, but these could be what these villains will look like eventually. So tread lightly, because spoilers abound! Also, there’s a powered-up Optimus Prime figure. No word on if he’ll actually have a crazy sword-thing in the movie. Read more…

Here’s the First Electro Teaser From Comic-Con

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 19, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn’t open until May 2nd next year, but that doesn’t stop the marketing machine at San Diego Comic-Con. At their panel they’ll apparently be dropping more news about Jamie Foxx as Electro later. If you’re at SDCC, you’re probably struggling to get to the panel yourself. But the rest of us at home can just enjoy this footage without the crowds. After watching this clip, though, it’s not really doing much to get me excited. Spider-Man is one of my favorite superheroes, but I haven’t really enjoyed the Mark Webb reboot. Perhaps I’ve become cold and cynical. I do appreciate that Andrew Garfield is a bit more cheeky, though! Check out the video below. Read more…

First Pic of Paul Giamatti as the Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2

Posted by Ben Huber on May 13, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


Well there you go. We were all wondering a bit how Paul Giamatti would fit into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the Rhino, and how much they would play up the “rhino” aspect of his character. At the very least I was pretty sure he wouldn’t have a horn coming out of his forehead. He does have a tattoo there, though! This time the Rhino will just be a simple Russian merc, Aleksei Sytsevich. Maybe he’ll still have super-strength? Or perhaps he will get some sort of crazy suit later in the movie. On the other end of things, if you haven’t seen Jaime Foxx as Electro yet, you might wanna take a peek below to see what you’re missing. I think he may have blue himself. Read more…



Chris Cooper Is Norman Osborn In The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Chris Cooper

Time for another casting confirmation for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marc Webb’s sequel to his reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. But first, let’s recap the cast as it stands. We have: Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Dane DeHann as Harry Osborn, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as the Rhino (yeah, I know, it’s weird), and Felicity Jones as someone (possibly Black Cat). And now, toss another potential villain into the mix… Read more…

Sony Wants Jamie Foxx to Play Electro

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 3, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books


Sony is revving their engines for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and of course they’re out hunting down their villain. Given the implied ending of the first movie, people guessed that Electro would be the main villain. Sony hasn’t even bothered keeping it a secret, and they’re apparently looking into having Jamie Foxx play the shocking (haha, no) villain. Foxx certainly didn’t help matters by tweeting that he dressed up as electro for Halloween, saying the “costume fits well.” Is Electro a good fit for the next Spider-Man film? I’m sure there are better villains out there, but I’m still curious to see how they tackle the character. Read more…



Augmenting Reality with Spider-Man

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 4, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books

Sadly, The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t seem to be amazing enough for many critics and fans alike. True, not every reboot can be as successful as the last, but you can’t really blame Sony for trying. It’s been years since the last Tobey Maguire film and even I have to admit I was a little sick of the kid. Nevertheless, we’ve got ourselves a new Spidey, so we may as well learn to cope. The first step might be to picking Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man Augmented Reality App for your favorite iOS device — mind you, an iPhone 4, 4s, or iPad 2 on up, is required.

The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Shows Promise

Posted by Ben Huber on May 5, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books

I’ll be honest, I’m still a little pessimistic about the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film. But this trailer has gone a long way to give me something to look forward to. The cinematography in particular is really great, and seeing Spidey swing through the streets of New York with such style makes me happy. At least we’ll get some good eye candy out of this. The Amazing Spider-Man releases on July 3rd, this summer.

Gentle Giant Making Spider-Man Busts, Faces Not Quite Right

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 1, 2012 in Hobbies and Collections


These busts from Gentle Giant for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film look pretty good. They have a fair attention to detail and have nice poses. The Lizard looks menacing, and Spider-Man is leaping in action from buildings – it’s all good stuff. But the alternate version with Spidey’s mask off isn’t quite there yet: I think it needs another revision or two, mainly because it doesn’t look like Andrew Garfield at all. Am I the only one thinking this? Read more…



Sunday Silliness: Spider-Man Nail Polish

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 4, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books


Looking for bizarre promotional products for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film? Here’s one of the oddest: Spider-Man nail polish. Sure, given the market that the new movie is aimed at, this isn’t too surprising, but I can’t help but feel that fan girls won’t really flock to this. The most terrifying thing here is the names, though. “Just Spotted the Lizard??” Is that a euphemism or something? “Call Me Gwen-ever?” Really? Read more…



Movie Poster Madness: Spider-Man Gets His Gloom On

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 11, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Spider-man poster

It’s a movie poster kind of day it seems, and another addition is The Amazing Spider-Man, being directed by Marc Webb. It looks to be a fun and enjoyable look at Spider-Man, plus I did like Andrew Garfield in The Social Network, so I’m excited to see his work here. A new poster isn’t anything truly groundbreaking, but in this case I have a bone to pick with this one. Hear me out, okay? Read more…

Meet Your Amazing New Spider-Man

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jul 15, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Amazing Spider-Man EW cover

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any promotional photos from the upcoming Spider-Man film reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, so it’s only fitting that Sony gave Entertainment Weekly a cover story about the film, treating us to a number of glorious, high-res shots. We finally get a clear look at Spidey’s suit from virtually all possible angles, confirmation that the web-shooters are mechanical instead of organic (like in Raimi’s trilogy), a shot of Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May, and of course the lovely Emma Stone as an eerily-accurate Gwen Stacy. For his part, Andrew Garfield does look the part, especially if your favorite Spidey is the lithe, lanky version. Read more…

Spider-Man Reboot Gets a Second Leg

Posted by Michael Sacco on Mar 25, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Andrew Garfield

Even though it hasn’t even been released yet, Sony Pictures  is banking on The Amazing Spider-Man being a big success. How big? Well, they’ve already greenlighted a sequel to the reboot, that’s how big. James Vanderbilt, screenwriter for the first film, has received the go-ahead to start a script for the sequel. Seems like a pretty big risk, but if TASM does do well, it means that they’ll have a leg up on pre-production for the sequel. If not, well, I’m not an accountant, but greenlighting a movie definitely costs some money. Maybe someone at Sony got bit by a radioactive hundred-dollar bill. Read more…
