Oh what a different 18 months makes. A year ago, last fall Spider-Man fans were facing an entire universe of Spidey movies they didn’t particularly want; a third Amazing Spider-Man about the continuing and not-particularly-exciting adventures of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, plus spinoff movies for Venom and the Sinister Six. Things got so bad for Spider-Man that when rumors began circulating that Sony was considering an Aunt May movie, Sony had to publicly dismiss those rumors as “silly” with “no validity whatsoever” because people thought that the company that made Amazing Spider-Man 2 might actually be dumb enough to make an Aunt May movie.
Captain America: Civil War has done a pretty good job keeping its MCU Spider-Man under wraps before the premiere, though the wall-crawler’s influence is being felt on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well. A new comic variant Season 3 finale poster pays homage to a classic Spider-Man cover, teasing an end to one of the title Agents.
A beloved superhero. A promising young director. A perfect pair of romantic leads. A dream supporting cast. What could possibly go wrong?
Because of all the excitement around the new Spider-Man in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, I decided to take a look back at the two Amazing Spider-Man movies from 2012 and 2014 directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield.

It seemed possible that I hadn’t given the Amazing movies a fair shake.
The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...
There have been a ton of rumors flying around the, um, web regarding Sony's plans for the world of Spider-Man. Things are a bit of a mess over there right now, and the future seems to be a bit uncertain, with only the 'Sinister Six' project moving ahead -- and even that project has had some question marks floating around. Some of the rumors we've been hearing have been potentially cool (like that all-female Spider-Man team-up), while others, like the one circulating today, are a bit weird: Sony is considering bringing Gwen Stacy back for another 'Amazing Spider-Man' film.
You'd think with the holiday the entertainment industry would take a break, but here we are with another installment of the Weekly Dose of Ridiculous. This week Seth Meyers might be making the dumbest career move possible, 'Amazing Spider-Man' tries to make us care about a sequel, FX passed on one of the best shows in 10 years, and a theater employee played God.
