After taking a few weeks off, 'SNL' will return this coming Saturday (when else?) to kick off the first of the 39th season's final three installments, webbing up 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield for his first hosting gig, along with Coldplay's fifth appearance on the series. The first promos have arrived with Bobby Moynihan, but how does Garfield stack up against his 'Spider-Man' co-star/girlfriend/former 'SNL' host/lip-sync champion Emma Stone?
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
It was previously revealed that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' would not have an end-credit scene, even though the trend has become standard with Marvel-produced films (and though the last 'Spider-Man' movie had one), and would instead feature footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Yet now Sony has alerted us there will be a sequence touting future Spider-Adventures, but not the way you'd expect.
Oh, Jimmy Fallon, you just don't stand a chance. Sure, your lip sync skills are above average, better than what most normal people could show off, and you should be proud. Really! But, let's be honest, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Emma Stone is perhaps the most accomplished lip sync artist to ever hit the 'Tonight Show' stage.
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' hasn't even hit theaters in the United States yet and they've already started trying to sell us on the home video release. But, before we can say "Hey, hold your horses! We'll contemplate picking up the physical media after we've seen the movie!", they go ahead and reveal the special edition Blu-ray set and it is a thing of hideous, baffling beauty. Behold the 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' deluxe edition, which is housed inside the cranium of Jamie Foxx's Electro.
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, DC and Warner Bros. get official with 'Justice League,' Marvel gets weird with Ant-Man and Dr. Strange, and Spider-Man looks to bring back J. Jonah Jameson.
I met Webb at his SoHo hotel room -- or, if not his room, the room Sony had him sitting in at that particular moment -- to talk about the future of Spider-Man, what exactly Shailene Woodley's role would have been in the final movie had she not been cut, and Webb offers some, let's say, coy hints at the possible return of J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.
Most actors and actresses don't actually like watching themselves on the big screen -- at least, that's what most of them say in interviews, and the majority of them sure sound sincere -- so it's not exactly rare to hear one of them say that they haven't watched their latest feature, even if they're making the talk show rounds to promote it. However, it does seem a little different when someone who has a relatively small part in a huge movie franchise fesses up about having never seen any of them. Maybe don't tell people that.
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, the 'Spider-Man' producers shoot down the potential of a crossover, Zack Snyder explains why Batman just has to fight Superman on the big screen, and Channing Tatum may take on a certain Cajun mutant superhero.
When rebooting the 'Spider-Man' franchise, director Marc Webb brought many of the classic characters with him to the 'Amazing Spider-Man' films. One character that didn't make the cut was J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Parker's blustery editor at The Daily Bugle. Jameson was played memorably by J.K. Simmons in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' films and Webb now admits it's time for him to appear in the new series of films.
With the recent news that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' would feature footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' as its post-credit sequence, it opened the door to the idea of possible future crossovers. But the producers of the current Spider-Man movies are pretty positive we'll never see the web slinger working alongside Tony Stark.
