Gwen Stacy

The new animated Spider-Man movie trailer has been a pretty big hit. With 16M views on YouTube in a matter of days since the official trailer released. Several familiar names, or rather voices, star in the movie. But who are all the names behind the masks we see in the trailer? The casual Spider-Fan may not be familiar with the new Spider-Man on the big screen or the other faces featured in the trailer. NerdBastards is here to help break down the names and actors that will bring Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse to life.



Ash Williams: Groovy S-Mart employee with a penchant for boomsticks and mad DIY prosthetics skills. Also, unlikely hero from the sky, fated to stop the Deadite invasion. Pretty much the spirit of the 80’s b-horror movie flick. Lobo: Space biker with a short fuse, and an anti-grav motorcycle. Hangs out with a school of space dolphins. Has fought Wolverine and made it to the second round. Functionally immortal, with the capacity to infinitely reproduce from each drop of his own spilt blood. Each of them is a smug anti-hero with an almost fanatical cult following among the most gung-ho nerds.

Once, they were separated by vast gulfs of time and space, each occupying his Universe of origin. That is, until Brian Rosenthal, the director behind the 2013 fan film Marvel Zombies VS Army Of Darkness thought otherwise. After  holding his own against zombie-Wolverine and narrowly escaping a super-zombie infested New York,  Ash Williams has broken into a brand new universe, also overwhelmed by the undead and filled to the brim with horror-themed cameos!

Wolverine can only hope to have this much fun while he’s dead. Gwenpool started out as a truly inspired mashup cosplay of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool at the San Diego Comic-con. The pink-powered merc quickly went viral, becoming official with appearances in titles like Howard the Duck and the Gwenpool Holiday Special.



Of all the “failicious”, yeah I just made that word up, Spider iterations over the last 8 years that we have dealt with and are set to deal with in the future; this Spider-Gwen trailer puts some fresh-air into the story, that it sorely needed.  But here is the kicker….it’s fan-made. Weep tears as you watch the craftily edited trailer below.

Fans of the Amazing Spider-Man and the many comic series that the character has made his way through know that the character of Gwen Stacy is not one that lasts for very long in the Marvel Universe. But while Gwen meets an untimely end in the comics, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the same fate awaits her in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Still, one has to wonder what’s going to happen. Now, the actress who plays Gwen Stacy, Emma Stone, has stepped up and said a few things about Stacy’s potential fate in the franchise. Scroll on for more. (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…)

So, uh, spoiler alert? Damn right!

For months we’ve been hearing about who’s in Amazing Spider-Man 2, and who might be playing them, and now, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, we get some cool details hot off the press. So spoilers revealed in…











Still here? You asked for it. Let’s take these one at a time

-Electro played by Jamie Foxx, will not being wearing the character’s traditional yellow and green outfit. Look for Foxx to sport something a little more stylish, like Electro’s Ultimate Spider-Man duds. Also, as if you didn’t know, Electro’s alterego Max Dillon will be gainfully employed as an employee at Oscorp.

-That Venom rumor? Forget about it! That morgue shot released last month wasn’t a Venom reference, but rather the morgue is where Dillon is taken after his “accident,” presumably the same “accident” that turns him into Electro.

-We know Chris Cooper‘s been cast as Norman Osborn, but there won’t be any Green Goblin in the film. What there will be is lots of foreshadowing, and that, at the beginning of the film at least, Norman won’t be cured and is still dying from his mysterious illness.

-And the biggest spoiler of all, sources confirm that Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) will indeed being going to the giant comic book store in the sky by the film’s end, perhaps even sooner than that. In fact, sources are saying that Stone may not have a very big role in the film at all.

So Bastards, are you intrigued yet? Sound off below.
