The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A strange thing happened during the production of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' Shailene Woodley was cast in the small role of Mary Jane Watson, AKA, the love of Peter Parker's life, but the part was completely excised in post-production for reasons that remain nebulous. Although she will not be appearing in the second film of the rebooted superhero franchise, some have wondered if she would be brought back for the inevitable third and fourth films ... and now we have an answer.
There's many various marketing material already out there for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- posters, trailers, TV spots, you name it! With a film that contains so many moving parts (mainly villains), it's tempting to utilize all of them. That said, the international promotional team put together the first of what will surely be numerous character posters from the Marc Webb-directed sequel.
If there's one thing that the trailers for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' have shown us, it's that this movie is just going to be jam-packed full of stuff. A batch of newly released pics only serves as a reminder of just how much is going on in Marc Webb's sequel, which seems to be taking everything that was established in the first film and multiplying the craziness by 10.
Football fans are no doubt excited for the 2014 Super Bowl, but even non-sports fans can find something to enjoy. No, we're not talking about Bruno Mars, we're talking about the Super Bowl movie trailers that will be airing during the commercial breaks. With the 2014 Super Bowl set to air on FOX at 6pm on February 2, we thought now would be the perfect time to run through what we know is going to debut during the big game and what surprises could still be in store.
Everything we've seen so far from 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' has indicated that the Times Square battle between Spider-Man and Electro (and later Green Goblin), will be the film's massive battle sequence. From the trailer, to the previous poster, to Spider-Man showing up at the actual Times Square on New Year's Eve showing another clip from that same sequence, it's all been pushing this one big fight. Now, we have three new 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' posters and - guess what? - they're all centered around the Spider-Man vs. Electro Times Square fight.
