Sony’s making moves to get their Spider-Man ball rolling so they can perhaps catch up with some of the bigger players in the comic book movie game. They’ve got plans for a Sinister Six flick, a third (and fourth and fifth…) Amazing Spider-Man film and there are several other spin-off movies in the works. Today we here at Nerd Bastards bring you a couple of tidbits concerning how Sony’s franchise is doing. Hear the latest rumors about a 2017 female-centric Spidey movie and the title of the upcoming Venom-themed movie. (more…)

Is Felicity Jones Playing Felicia Hardy (The Black Cat) in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′?

- 06-18-13Comics, Film Posted by Mark Poynter

Officially the role that Felicity Jones is playing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is unknown, but many believe that she will be playing Felicia Hardy, aka the Black Cat. In a recent interview with Flicks in the City’s Jan Gilbert Jones was asked:

Are you looking forward to everyone seeing you as Black Cat?

Felicity’s bumbling answer, that is trying hard NOT to be an answer, is endearing in its simplicity. She wasn’t ready for that question, in that form, and you can see her stumble to get something out there while not confirming anything. I’m sure she’ll get better at it with practice. Although I have to say, this cat is out of the bag and won’t go back in.

Expect IMDB to update her role listing in a day or so.

Spy Vid: Is that Rhino from ‘Amazing Spidey 2′ Set?

- 05-01-13Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

We know that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is full to the brim with villains – Electro (Jamie Foxx), Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), Black Cat (Felicity Jones), though that last one is more rumor than anything – but aside from a recent pic of Foxx as Electro, we haven’t seen too much of all those bad guys.

And now there’s this. It’s a video of some spy pics from the Rochester set of Amazing 2, and the video-makers think it seems to indicate the look of Paul Giamatti‘s character Rhino. Now obviously, the shot isn’t of the Rhino in costume, and it’s not even Giamatti himself, but the mask the stunt man is wearing, and the very Russian mob-style appearance with the tattoos and the jump suit, it’s easy to conclude that maybe this is what Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich might look like out of costume.

Press play on the video below and judge for yourself.

Despite what you may have heard, there are some of us that weren’t completely upset with Marc Webb’s latest Spider-Man reboot.  In fact, there are quite a few folks out there looking for some news concerning the upcoming 2014 sequel.  We already know that Electro (Jamie Foxx) will be the main villain and that Paul Giamatti is supposedly playing the Rhino.  We also know that Mary Jane and Harry Osborn will be showing their faces.  Now, there may even be some potential Black Cat casting.  In addition, Webb teased a tiny taste of the changes they’ll be making to Spidey’s costume.  Check it all out after the jump.

J-Estacado must really love the work of famed pin-up artist Gil Elvgren, so much so that he made his own tribute piece to Gil with DC Comics Zatanna in place of Gil’s girls. He really nails it too, right down to the black negligee she has on in the tribute piece. Now that’s some real magic. [Nudity and Nerdery]
