Although 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' spends most of its villain time on Jamie Foxx's Electro and Dane DeHaan's Green Goblin, it features a brief cameo from another member of Spidey's rogue's gallery: the Rhino. The new take on the classic villain divided fans from frame one, but some newly released concept art gives us a look at what he could have looked like.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Swings Into First Place

Sony
Sony

As expected, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' opened the summer movie season in style, overcoming mixed reviews to dominate the top 10 and cause every other film's weekend gross to tumble. Coming weeks will see if it can do the business of the other films in the franchise, but this is a strong start to what looks to be a jam-packed summer.

Director Marc Webb Talks About the Shocking Ending to ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ [SPOILERS]

Spiderman

First thing, if you haven't yet seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' you should not be reading this article as it contains major spoilers for the ending of the film.

Okay, now that that business is out of the way ... director Marc Webb has been hinting for some time that the events in his film could eventually emulate what occurred in the pages of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' #121, which (last chance) depicts the death of Peter Parker's love interest, Gwen Stacy -- who is played by Emma Stone in the two most recent Spider-Man films.

Now that you've seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' we asked director Marc Webb about everything that went into the final shot of Gwen falling off the clock tower, including when it was decided to kill off Gwen (early); if there were any second thoughts; why the original scene had to be re-shot; and why 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' ended on an upbeat note, as opposed to leaving us with a dark ending.

Peter Parker Will Be the Only Spider-Man You Ever See in the Movies

Amazing Spider Man Miles Morales
Marvel

Andrew Garfield has publicly intoned that he's not long for the 'Spider-Man' franchise once 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' is done ("I know that I don't particularly want to be a 40-year-old Spider-Man..."). One of the popular theories is that the franchise will continue with a new Spider-Man, as Peter Parker hands over the reigns to fan favorite Miles Morales (who, in the comics, took over after the "Death of Spider-Man" storyline). It would be a neat way to keep the franchise coming, while also diversifying the superhero universe. Except, according to the 'Amazing Spider-Man' producers, it's never going to happen.

Andrew Garfield Performs ‘Spider-Man’ Theme Song, Pocket Bike Races With Jimmy Fallon

"I'm no Adele Dazeem," joked 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield as Jimmy Fallon handed him a guitar on 'The Tonight Show.'

At this point, celebs should know that if they don't want to showcase their hidden talents on late-night TV, they shouldn't bring them up around eccentric hosts. While Garfield seemed a little hesitant to "let it go," as they say, given that this was to be his first time singing in public, he eventually gave in and gave a folksy, Brooklyn-hipster-bar rendition of the 'Spider-Man' theme song ... before racing around the 'Tonight Show' studio on a pocket bike.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Review

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Final
Sony Pictures

Most of what I know about complex science comes from comic books, so forgive me if my understanding of quantum mechanics is a little off. But, I think it can mean that particles can exist in two states simultaneously. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a film loaded with such half-understood notions of difficult scientific concepts, is a quantum movie. It manages to be both awful and entertaining, frequently at the same exact time. The script is ludicrous, even by summer blockbuster standards. The characters behave irrationally and without motivation and the story makes lengthy, frequent pit stops into dull backstory. But, for every moment of tedium and confusion there is a tiny explosion of joy. Director Marc Webb just barely ties this collision of half-baked ideas together in a sticky Spidey bow.

The ‘Electric Company’ Spider-Man Shorts, Ranked

Spiderman1

I thought it would be fun to revisit as many of these old Spider-Man shorts I could find ... it was not that fun. I mean, sure, it's fun to listen to that theme song again! And it was fun to see Morgan Freeman pop up and help and or fight Spider-Man. But, these tend to get a little redundant, which makes sense because they were made for a six-year-old living in the mid-1970s. It was either this or stare at a wall -- which, maybe, is where the idea for Spider-Man's foe The Wall came from. Regardless, I watched and ranked all of the Spider-Man shorts I could find (15 in all) from least enjoyable to most enjoyable. (Sadly, not all of them are online.)

‘SNL’ Preview: Andrew Garfield Tries to Live Up to Emma Stone

SNL Andrew Garfield Coldplay Promo Spiderman
NBC

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?

‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Has an End-Credit Easter Egg After All, Sort of

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Easter Egg
Columbia Pictures

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.
