amazing spider-man 2

I usually feel like a colossal piece of shit when I root for a film to fail (because who knows how art will age, be viewed in the context of history, etc.), but I definitely think I can make an exception when it comes to Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man films. These ‘movies’ are artless, consumerist dog-piles; the worst examples of comic book anti-cinema being authored by a boardroom full of bottom-line motivated suits. But it looks like we’re going to be spared another feature-length trailer for future franchise installments for at least a little while longer, as Sony may be pushing Marc Webb’s third pile-driver of fuck back until 2017 (though ‘never’ is certainly the better option).

As we count down to the release of the film, fate (and the internet) brings us a pair of new interviews with the cast and crew, and some provocative potential spoilers courtesy of one of the film’s social media outlets. So what ties all this together? As a wise man once said: Think about the future. So without further ado, let’s consider the future of Spider-Man(more…)

Fans of the Amazing Spider-Man and the many comic series that the character has made his way through know that the character of Gwen Stacy is not one that lasts for very long in the Marvel Universe. But while Gwen meets an untimely end in the comics, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the same fate awaits her in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Still, one has to wonder what’s going to happen. Now, the actress who plays Gwen Stacy, Emma Stone, has stepped up and said a few things about Stacy’s potential fate in the franchise. Scroll on for more. (more…)

Super Bowl time is a time of rejoicing for many sports fans. But even if you don’t happen to be a football aficionado, you can still get some pleasure from the Super Bowl, for it is also the time when marketing companies go out of their way to promote anything and everything. Further, this year the commercial barrage is going to show off some of the big-budget movie blockbusters that will be hitting during 2014. So which trailers can we expect, you ask?

Thousands of people gather in New York City’s Time Square every year for the New Year’s celebrations every December 31, but joining Ryan Seacrest and a cavalcade of celebrity entertainers at the “crossroads of the world” this year is a very special guest in the form of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. He’s not there to celebrate though, Spidey will be there to do some promotion for his upcoming new film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (more…)

While I wish I could give you more footage to watch from Amazing Spider-Man 2 and 300: Rise of an Empire, the latest bit of marketing happens to be rather unmoving. Unmoving as in they’re a couple of posters, not as in they produce a coldness in your heart. Anyways, look down for the newest in Spider-Man and scroll down further if you want to have a look at 300.

The English-language trailer hit just a week ago, so it was only a matter of time before Amazing Spider-Man 2 started branching out to captivate other audiences.  The latest in the marketing chain is the German trailer.  And though most of us may not understand a word of what’s being said, it does provide a chance to see a bit more footage of Spidey as he swings through the city, saving civilians from falling everything and kicking around some baddies.  Check it out below: (more…)

electro close up

Last week was the big premiere of the first Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. We’ve all seen plenty of screen shots at this point, but finally we have something that’s actually moving around to look at. What’s more, it appears that the makers of the new flick have given us an Easter egg to look for in the trailer as well. The folks over at SuperHeroHype found something interesting lurking in the background. (more…)
