Hey, remember when Sony was going to create a huge comic book universe based only on Spider-Man characters? Of course you don’t. That was a silly move by studio folk that couldn’t make a single decent Spider-Man movie. Spider-Man?! Anyway, one of the projects that Sony had in mind was Sinister Six, and great pains were taken to set up that project in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but with the rights to Spider-Man, at least partially, going back to Marvel, all that Sinister Six talk dried up. However, the man that was to make the Sinister Six film says that there’s still a chance, however small, that it can still see the light of day. (more…)
The Amazing Spider-Man
It seems that Andrew Garfield was really excited about re-assuming his role as Spider-Man in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’, had it been made. However, he may have been assuming a little too much. The 2014 hack into Sony Pictures’ e-mails inferred that neither the Sony or Marvel camps were interested in bringing Garfield back. In an interview with Uproxx, Garfield spoke more about his thoughts on what could have been the 3rd Amazing Spider-Man film, and his views on the Marvel crossover. (more…)
If you were like me and couldn’t exit the theater fast enough when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 credits rolled, you missed the X-Men: Days of Future Past easter egg that ran half way through said credits.
Don’t fret though — IGN has posted the film’s teaser and it gives a very brief look at Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique rounding up some mutant help and declaring herself (at least temporarily) working without Magneto.
With the expanding TASM universe, one has to wonder if we’ll ever see another character take up the mantle of Spider-Man on screen. If the rumor that Andrew Garfield won’t return for a fourth film is true, then we would definitely have to find another web-slinger to take his place, but could it be another character altogether? Perhaps, the character that took over for Peter Parker in the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, Miles Morales? Click on through to see what the current Spider-Man had to say on the possibility of passing the torch. (more…)
Good news for those who despised Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man (which, to be honest, feels like pretty much everybody). While Webb has directed the first two entries in the now Raimi-less series (and is signed to helm the third), he says he’s formulating an exit strategy from the Peter Parker game. (more…)
In Not-Really-Internet-Breaking-News Sony has confirmed that Marc Webb will be returning to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Everyone pretty much expected this, Webb has been the driving creative force behind the Spider-Man reboot. Webb was talking trilogy before the first had even started shooting. (more…)
It was just yesterday that we got our first look at The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Green Goblin, in the form of a bust statue. Now, I know, it wasn’t very clear, and who wants to see a blurry picture of a sculpture of a movie character? That’s right, no one! Without further ado, check out this new screen from TASM2 featuring Gobby himself. (more…)
It’s been more or less confirmed that we’ll be getting three villains in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and while we’ve seen up close pictures of both Rhino and Electro, it seems as though Sony has been keeping a clear shot of the Goblin out of sight, even just barely showing him in the first official poster released a few months back. Well, thanks to a video detailing the collectible bust statue, we now have the best look of this new Goblin yet. ***SPOILERS AHEAD***
