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***
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…)
Do your best to act surprised – Sony plans to grow the Spider-Man movie universe and give some screen time to “new heroes and villains”.
At its Entertainment Investor Day event today, head of Sony Pictures Entertainment Amy Pascal revealed that spin-offs are coming and they will be mining “Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters.” Will this go past the build-up to Sinister Six we’ve all been anticipating? Is it Sony’s way of preparing for a Spider-Man universe without Andrew Garfield? He is only under contract for three films after all.
Spidey fans are abuzz regarding Paul Giamatti‘s upcoming appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Aleksei Sytsevich, aka The Rhino….
It could be the best or worst part of the highly anticipated sequel, depending on who you ask, and Sony seems to be banking on Giamatti’s drawing power: In a recent interview with Collider while supporting the upcoming release of Parkland, the acclaimed actor admitted that he’s signed a multi-picture deal. Rhino will definitely be appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and possibly 4–if 4 actually happens, that’s yet to be confirmed.
Giamatti has also hinted strongly that he’ll be participating in a Sinister Six movie–again, nothing’s been set in stone.
In any case, it appears Rhino’s involvement in ASM 2 will be relatively light (probably because Jamie Foxx’s Electro will be the principle baddie), setting the stage for a larger role in part 3.
