Hopefully by now you’ve all had a chance to chill out from this morning’s revelation of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. Undoubtedly you’ve watched it several times now to uncover it’s hidden secrets and Easter eggs, because, let’s face it, you just can’t help yourself. But if you’re looking for insight, Total Film has something for you, specifically a version of the Spider-Man trailer with color commentary from director Marc Webb and members of the cast. What do they have to say about the film? Read on and watch the video, dear reader. (more…)
All sorts of goodies from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been rolling out since it was announced that the first official trailer would be releasing this Thursday, and today comes bearing more gifts. In addition to the teasers that released yesterday hyping the trailer, and the picture featuring Spidey and foes a few days before that, we’ve now got our hands on an official plot summary. (more…)
In the villain loaded sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, the most villainous of all is Max Dillion, AKA: Electro (played by Jamie Foxx). As we’ve seen in clips and images so far, we know we will see two sides to Electro, the pre- and post-super-power version of him, which begs the question: How will Electro get his powers in the film? It you subscribe to the Daily Bugle then you’ll already know the answer, for the rest of you the potential spoiler filled reveal is below. (more…)
It seemed like it was never going to open in the first place. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the big, Broadway musical adaptation of the Marvel Comics hero, began production in 2007 and burned through millions of dollars, saw several changes in cast and production staff and had more than a couple of on-stage injuries, all before preview performances had even begun. Still, Turn Off the Dark has managed to eek out a place for itself on the Great White Way, at least it will until this coming January. (more…)
It’s no secret that superhero movies are hot nowadays, and with The Avengers opening the doors to superhero team-up movies and crafting a superbly interconnected universe, they may just be more popular than ever. A lot of people are calling for other members of the super group to join in, but due to those properties being licensed out to other studios, the thought of an Avengers movie with other popular superheroes, like Spider-Man and Wolverine, have seemed like something we’d only see in our dreams. According to Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige, however, we shouldn’t count it as an impossibility just yet. (more…)
For years, I bled ink onto newsprint (which was a thing before all the paper’s died and good men like me turned to generic booze and sad blog jobs), railing about the menace that was the Spider-Man. But in a city full of lunkheads, he kept swinging free. Some even called him a hero, but now we know the true story.
Vindication, you taste sweeter than a fresh rolled cohiba.
I am once again accusing the Spider-Man of being a criminal, but this time, I say this with a smile and with pictures and police reports to back me up. Pittsburgh police have arrested a man dressed up in the familiar garb of the Spider-Man. They say he went into a place called Atwood Xpress at around 1 AM and tried to rob the place. A real citizen hero tried to use a taser on Spider-Man, but he fled.
End of story? Spider-Man once again lives to plunder another sun soaked day with his dark and dastardly deeds! Not this time. This time, the itsy bitsy spider got tangled in his web and washed out by authorities who are charging him with one count of robbery.
Some will say that they are shocked. They’re appalled! Maybe even flummoxed. They’ll say that good old Spidey hasn’t been himself lately, but I beg to differ. This seems like exactly the kind of shenanigans that Spider-Man would pull off. I’m just glad it didn’t happen in New York — Spider-Crook has hurt that city enough already, if you ask me.
Speaking of me, where do I go from here now that my white whale is in lockup? Surely, I’ve gained a reputation as the most vehement of Spider-Man’s critics, and that deserves a reward. Maybe I’ll write a book. Who knows, maybe I’ll pull a Drudge and start a website. FOX News called, maybe I’ll shave off this ridiculous mustache, finish dyeing my hair, and host a cable news show where I can finally shout in peace.
Until then, goodbye Spider-Man, I hope your butt senses are tingling.
This is a work of parody, but a man in a Spider-Man costume really was arrested in Pittsburgh. You can check out the real article here.
Until Marvel Studios wised up and started putting their super heroes together in movies, even small cameos and Easter eggs, fans were left with single hero movies that just didn’t scratch that comic book itch we all felt in the back of our heads. Throw in the lawyers and rights issues between studios and you’ve got a mess on your hands.
So far, Hugh Jackman has been the only actor to portray the Wolverine on the big screen and he has often talked about wanting to do scenes with some of the other Marvel movie heroes like Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. In a recent interview with The Huffinton Post, Jackman revealed the Wolverine/(Sam Raimi) Spider-Man cameo that almost was.
In the first Spider-Man — Kevin Feige reminded me of this — we really tried to get me to come on and do something, whether it was a gag or just to walk through the shot or something. The problem was, we couldn’t find the suit. The suit was stuck in some thing. And so when they were in New York when I was there, we couldn’t get it together. So, you know, I actually asked some high level people about it.
Because the optimist in me goes, “Why not? Why can’t we do it? You know, a split cast or whatever?” And someone reminded that the amount of money Fox paid compared to the amount of money Disney paid is very different [laughs]. So how you split that pie up? God knows. But in the comic books, what’s great about it is they’re just mashing together all the time — and it’s awesome. And people are like, “Yeah, well, let’s get this one with that!” And, you know, I still think, one day, there may be an ability to do it.
Now when Jackman is talking about “The Suit” he isn’t talking about his Wolverine costume, he’s talking about the studio executive who can make the decision and slap their stamp of approval on it. If the costume had been the only thing in the way Jackman would have just appeared in jeans and a t-shirt, chewing a lit cigar and grumbling something witty and crude at our favorite web-slinger.
It’s too bad, that would have really sparked even more interest in the movie. Now, the only thing keeping this from happening is still that “Suit” that can’t be found in time. It’s interesting when you look at the history of comics and see that sooner or later Marvel and DC always came together for some big comic book crossover, Superman versus Spider-Man, the Avengers versus the JLA. Perhaps we’ll get to see the studios come to the same conclusion, throw the heroes together, make a decent movie, and rake in the big bucks. It could happen in our lifetime.
What super hero cameo are you hoping to see the most? For me I think I’d like to see Iron Man and Wolverine mix it up, claws versus armor.

We all may remember Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man 3 as easily the worst film in the trilogy, but I think it’s also characterized by its debut of the black symbiote suit. Well, seven years later, pictures are surfacing that show a different version of the black alien suit (above).
So, what do you think? To be honest, the suit was never an issue I had with the movie. This one looks cool, and definitely resembles the comics version, but it looks like it’d be a real bitch to move around in, which is apparently one of the reasons that it was scrapped in the first place. In addition to the lack of movement, there is also word that Raimi wanted to keep the “webbed” design of the suit from the first two films.
Personally, I think the version used in the movie followed the logic of the suit, molding itself after whatever it comes into contact with, but I’m sure that more than a few fans will clamor over this more “faithful” design. For those who long for something like this to make it into a live-action Spidey flick, don’t worry; I’m sure Marc Webb will take a shot at the Venom suit at some point in his series.

You might remember producer Adi Shankar‘s name from that wonderful Punisher short Dirty Laundry, starring Thomas Jane and Ron Pearlman. This time around he’s brought together director Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) and actor Ryan Kwanten to tackle what many Spider-Man fans are clamoring to see, Venom in his own movie.
#TRUTHINJOURNALISM does start out a little slow, but the payoff is incredible. The story picks up where the last Spider-Man movie left off, Eddie Brock is disgraced and working for a cheap news-rag, chasing that big story that will put him back in the lime-light. A documentary crew follows Brock until…
What did you think? Will a studio take a chance on this character? Maybe they could make a Marvel “Suicide Squad / Expendables” type movie , throw in Deadpool, Venom, and some other characters that can’t seem to get their own feature film and let them wreak havoc on some of the governments enemies.
Is Ron Perlman pregnant with a Kaiju baby?
Also on the show, the boys wring out the Star Wars‘ schmatta rag to get a few drips of mango flavored rumor juice in their hairy, insidious mouths.
Do you want more? Fine! Cats are forging an alliance and taking over the streets and the guys are pretty sure that it’s all a part of a secret evil pussy plan.
