Today we have more dribs and drabs about The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the upcoming sequel to the Spidey reboot. In this article there are three images that don’t necessarily spoil anything in the movie, but they do confirm that Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx are in the film, and that it does feature the superhero Spider-Man. (more…)
Once more into the Ghostbusters 3 rumor mill, dear friends, once more. Or close the wall up with our Ghostbusters 3 dreams dead. I thought I was out, but they keep pulling me back in. This time around Emma Stone and Jonah Hill are added to the Rumor Mill Mix. (more…)
There’s a new set of production stills coming out of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set, including one huge teaser to Spider-Man fan-boys and girls. We’ve still got a bit of a wait until the May 2nd, 2014 release date, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see some teaser clips start hitting the Internet in a couple of weeks.
Take a look at the gallery below, I think there might be something in the reflection of Stan Lee‘s trademark reflective sunglasses, but I can’t quite make it out, it’s probably nothing, they wouldn’t hide any teasers like that… would they?
A few days ago we showed you the teaser trailer to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, featuring Jamie Foxx in mid-transformation to Electro. That was only a part of what Sony had planned for Friday, giving fans in Hall H the first footage of Marc Webb‘s upcoming sequel. Lucky buggers.
What the studio essentially called a “reel” was the closest thing to a trailer anyone in that room has seen since filming began months ago. Covering brief character introductions, a bit of the trademark Spider-Man banter, and the troubles of keeping a “super” relationship, the footage was in rough shape. Incomplete effects, a couple of storyboards, but it was enough to convey the story to the audience in the room.
For a complete, more detailed description head over to /Film, they were in the room and do a fantastic job of telling you everything, here we’re delivering a slightly quicker version of what they saw. Let’s get to it, shall we.
Preview night is over. The first official day of San Diego Comic Con is underway, and in shockingly good fashion too. Earlier today Sony Pictures released the first teaser trailer to Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, featuring co-star Jamie Foxx‘s Electro in mid-transformation from average Max Dillon. It’s short, but it sure get’s you “charged” for what’s to come.
Part of an extended trailer taking place tomorrow, July 19th in Hall H at 4:05 p.m PST this trailer will be among the panels held by Sony to promote Robocop, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Now enough of this jibber jabber, on with the trailer!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan will be released in theaters everywhere on May 2nd, 2014.

Yesterday, news came out that Shailene Woodley‘s scenes in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be cut from the movie. The reason given at the time by director Marc Webb was so that the movie could focus solely on the relationship between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
The latest news is that Woodley will not be showing up in any Spider-Man sequel and the Mary Jane part would likely be recast with another actress. The reason given being:
Woodley will likely be busy with the sequels to her upcoming sci-fi movie Divergent and may not be available, so the tole may have to be recast.
That’s got to be some kinda code for, Fan reaction wasn’t incredibly positive so we’re dumping her. Recasting the role because there is a “chance” the actress will be busy on another project is pure nonsense. Schedules can be juggled without that much issue. The creative decision to shift Mary Jane’s appearance to later sequels can be reasonably explained, the recasting IMHO is a little stickier.
Don’t worry though, Woodley will be just fine. She’s already gotten her paycheck for her work on the film and her other projects should continue to spotlight her fantastic acting talents.
What do you think about this move? Does this boil down to wanting a sexier Mary Jane, more model than actual acting talent, or perhaps a bigger name with more recognition?
When the news hit the Internet that Jamie Foxx had been cast as one of the main villains in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the response was mixed. I was on the fence, and then I went to see Django Unchained and remembered that Foxx has some serious acting talent. He can pull it off, even if they dress him up in a truly-horrifically-stereotypically-nerdy scientist manner (See picture below).
Foxx recently talked with Yahoo Movies about The Amazing Spider-man 2 production:
“Oh, man ― it’s so much fun, the costume is great. They were very creative with it. It’s part of a remarkable legacy: Spider-Man. I mean, when you’re growing up as a kid, you know, that’s everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing.”
Foxx went on to confirm his attendance at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, and that the visiting cast and crew will be premiering film footage at the panel.
“Now I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it,” Foxx said. “Marc Webb is a genius and Amy Pascal and everybody at Sony have just be so gracious to allow me to have this opportunity. So it’s cool.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Sally Field and Chris Cooper, and Paul Giamatti. The movie swings it’s way onto theater screens May 2nd, 2014.

There’s a new batch of on set pictures coming out of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man II production and these pictures could spoil a key plot line in the movie franchise. Click through the jump if you want to see, but you received fair warning, no whining about spoilers on the other side.
If you thought the casting of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider Man 2 was unexpected, wait until you see what he looks like. Lets bare in mind that Electro is one of the campier villains, so doing a live-action version of him would’ve been difficult. Regardless, I don’t think any of us expected the creatives behind TASM2 were gonna go so… Smurfy.
The Daily Mail has provided new photos from the Times Square set of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man sequel revealing our first good look at Jamie Foxx as Maxwell Dillon, better known as the supervillain Electro. Check em’ out below:
It’s BLUE the villain is BLUE!!
Alright, so they go ultimate universe version…. why not? Hey, at least he’s more attractive than the girl playing Mary Jane. Definitely not what I expected, but I’m sure it’ll look cool with all the CG lightning added. I’m confident he’ll is gonna make a way better villian than the lizard.
The movie also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. The movie will be released on May 2nd, 2014

Guillermo del Toro is gearing up for another flick now that Pacific Rim is on its way to theaters, and he’s now diving right into Crimson Peak, which has been described as a “haunted house thriller”.
Del Toro has added Benedict Cumberbatch to his collection of stars for the upcoming film, putting him in the #1 spot as the leading
lady dude. We all know who he is by now, I’m sure. He’ll be joining Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam on-screen.
It’s quite the mysterious film, though; there are aren’t many known details about it, other than that the screenplay written by del Toro and Matthew Robins is being re-written with Lucinda Coxon. Legendary Pictures is producing Crimson Peak, with Universal Pictures hanging out on the sidelines ready to jump in whenever. Filming is planned to start in February 2014.
