The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The next slate of Marvel films will soon be upon us, now that we're about to enter the new year, and the one closest on the horizon is Marvel Studios' 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'The Winter Soldier). As Empire Magazine drops its latest issue on news stands featuring our patriotic strongman's next standalone mission, new photos from the sequel have hit the web in addition to some new looks at 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'!
Following the release of the first 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' trailer, fans of the Marvel web slinger were a buzz with their first looks at Electro, the mechanical Rhino and even a new Green Goblin in action. Now, thanks to the overseas marketing for the next installment to Marc Webb's trilogy, there's even more footage to be seen.
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man just got a much bigger neighborhood.
Sony Pictures has officially announced their 'Amazing Spider-Man' spinoffs, expanding the Spidey universe with 'Venom' and 'The Sinister Six' films.
We've long suspected that 'Amazing Spider-Man 4' would be more of a 'Spider-Man' spinoff and now it looks like those suspicions are true. Spider-Man himself, star Andrew Garfield, now says he has nothing to do with the planned 'Amazing Spider-Man 4' saying he's only under contract for one more film.
The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' trailer is here, and if you thought this was just going to be a teaser that would mildly hint at what's to come, you're wrong. This new trailer is chockfull of everything you want from a Spider-Man movie, including Rhino, Green Goblin and Electro, plus some preeeeetty interesting hints at what villains could be coming in 'Amazing Spider-Man 3.'
Sony is starting their marketing blitz for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a move that should culminate Thursday with the release of the film's first trailer. But before we get to see these characters in motion, new stills have emerged to highlight the hero and his new main villain Electro (Jamie Foxx).
