As yet another star-studded and box office-busting summer moviegoing season ends this weekend, it's the perfect time to look back at the months that gave us enough entertainment to pad our culture-consuming bellies until it's time for the Oscar contenders to bulk us back up
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The 'Sinister Six' movie was recently bumped up in the timeline so that it will be the next 'Spider-Man' universe movie, coming before 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' and not after, as was originally planned. Director Marc Webb thought while he was making 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' that he'd have another film to build the Sinister Six, but he won't have that luxury. That said, he did talk quite a bit on the 'ASM2' audio commentary about the future of the franchise, including some words about which Spider-Man villains would be appearing as the Sinister Six.
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is set to hit DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, August 19, but before then, take a look at some behind-the-scenes footage, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, showing just how Jamie Foxx assumed the role of Electro.
Spider-Man is about to face his most "sinister" challenge yet! No, we're not talking about the logline for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' We're referring to the fact that the movie universe is about to branch out into a slew of spinoffs, including ones for 'Venom,' a female-led film, and, of course, the 'Sinister Six.' A recent teaser for the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Spider-Man 2' hit the web, hinting at what we can expect from the ultimate villain team-up through new concept art.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Warner Bros. steps up to the superhero movie plate, video from the set of 'Batman v Superman' emerges, and Spider-Man inspires a new spin-off.
The latest entry to the “I need your blood but I’m not a vampire movies” genre is ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ a movie I would probably have simply watched and forgotten almost immediately – just like all of the other ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ movies -- if it wasn’t for it’s awfully familiar plot point: The villains (I’m being vague on who the villains are as to avoid spoilers) (Also: ha!) needs the Turtles’ blood. Of course the villain needs the Turtles’ blood because what why else would anyone have any interest in English-speaking human adult-size turtles?
Sony Pictures has big plans in store for their 'Spider-Man' movie franchise, further reiterating that they will not give up their claim on this superhero world. Aside from the new release dates for 'Sinister Six' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3,' it's been revealed that the studio will further expand this cinematic universe by mining some of its female superheroes for spinoff flicks.
It's San Diego Comic-Con 2013, and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ stars Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan and Jamie Foxx are sitting next to their director, Marc Webb, on the Hall H stage, ready to face the thousands of comic book and movie fans in attendance during a Q&A. A kid, maybe in his late teens, makes his way up to the mic and addresses a question to Garfield himself. Identifying himself as a gay Asian American, he wanted to know if the actor felt any pressure in making his stance on LGBT equality known, referring to previous comments made by the actor.
Andrew Garfield previously said that he'd like to see Spider-Man and The Avengers team up on-screen, but that doesn't mean his wants have become reality. Despite alleged photographic evidence of the web-slinging actor moseying around on the 'Avengers 2' set, it all turns out to be one big hoax!
