MAY HERO

A friend of mine goes around being bummed out a lot because his sister sleeps around all the time. I told him to just be cool about it because she is who she is, and everyone has to accept that. A long time ago, I understood that you can’t change people or ask them to be something different than they are. That’s why it doesn’t surprise me in the least that word is going around about the morons at Sony developing an a Spider-Man’ movie spinoff starring Peter Parker’s Aunt May. You just gotta let a clown be a clown, and Sony’s just a bunch of clowns. Now, this comes from a Latino Review Exclusive, so take it with a grain of salt. But it’s being reported everywhere, so I’m thinking it’s real. Sadly real. (more…)

While I’m sure these pictures aren’t the big Lizard reveal you’ve been hoping for, they do give us some clues as to what the scaly side of Dr. Curt Connors will look like. Unlike previous set photos this time Rhys Ifans doesn’t have a bag over his head like some kidnapping victim but instead is sporting some scaly skin effects.

The gallery after the cut also includes some of our first looks at Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Fields as Aunt May (noticeably less dowdy than her previous screen incarnations) and Andrew Garfield interacting with his new Gwen Stacy, Emma Stone.

Think the skin effect looks nifty or pretty lame? It’s subtle, that’s fore sure. But maybe that’s because they’re saving up for their biggest reveal. Dr. Connors’ hand will actually mutate into a living, breathing…Kermit the Frog!

I’m sure it’s only a glove used to cover his hand for post-production CGI effects, but come on, seriously, it looks like a freakin’ muppet!

Make sure you check out the full gallery of The Amazing Spider-man images, arriving in theatres July 22 2012, after the cut.
