The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits $700 million worldwide

14 June 2014 3:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having fallen just short of the milestone on Thursday, Sony’s superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 crossed the $700 million mark yesterday, becoming only the second film to do so this year after Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

At this point, it looks likely that Spidey will overtake Cap’s $710.1 million to become the biggest earner of the year so far, although it may just fall short of its predecessor, which pulled in $757.9 million back in 2012. If so, then the wall-crawler’s latest outing will remain the lowest-grossing instalment of Sony’s Spider-Man movie franchise.

2014 is shaping up to be another solid year for the superhero movie with 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past catching up fast to its rivals, having pulled in $624.4 million, meaning that Marvel currently occupies the top three spots in the list of the year’s highest-grossing movies.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 crosses half a billion at the box office

11 May 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have found itself knocked from the top of the North American chart after just one week, but Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has crossed the half a billion mark at the box office this past weekend, with $147 million domestically and $403 million internationally giving the Marc Webb helmed sequel a solid $550 million to date.

At present, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is trailing Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier by some $145 million, and is also currently the lowest-grossing instalment of Sony’s Spider-Man movie series, with The Amazing Spider-Man sitting on $752 million worldwide. While that figure certainly seems achievable, the sequel is going to face some stiff competition, with Godzilla arriving this week, followed by another superhero offering X-Men: Days of Future Past the following week.

Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Matt Tolmach discuss the ending to The Amazing Spider-Man 2

5 May 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – Major spoilers for the ending of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follow. If you’re yet to see the movie, you should turn back now…

We’ve already heard a few comments from director Marc Webb about the shocking climax to Sony’s superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [read his thoughts here], as Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man fails to save his true love Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) from falling to her death during the climactic final battle with the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan). Well, now stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and producer Matt Tolmach have shared their thoughts on ‘The Night Gwen Stacy Died’ during an interview with ComicBookResources.

“I knew from the very beginning what the intention was for Gwen’s arc,” said Stone regarding the death of her character. “I thought it was executed well.”

“It’s a defining moment in the comics, and not just in the Spider-Man comics, »

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Review

5 May 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaanColm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott, Marton Csokas, B.J. Novak, Sarah Gadon | Written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner | Directed by Marc Webb

After the debacle that was Spider-Man 3, Sony Movie Studios set out to remove the bitter taste it left by rebooting the franchise only ten years after it began.  Now only two films in it appears that sour taste has returned. Lessons learned from past mistakes have quickly been forgotten. Subtly and articulate storytelling have been sacrificed in favor of manipulative world building. There is such a fixation on setting up for the future that the present is nearly disregarded. The Amazing Spider-Man 2  has a great deal of talent behind it, including actors who may even fit into their roles better than their predecessors. What it lacks is the discipline »

Marc Webb wants Kraven the Hunter for The Amazing Spider-Man 3

5 May 2014 2:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having upped the number of villains for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the introduction of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Sony is now gearing up to expand its Spider-Man bad guy quota with spin-offs for Venom and The Sinister Six.

We’ve already seen a tease for the potential line-up of The Sinister Six [see here], and now Marc Webb has indicated that we might get to see one or more of those characters when The Amazing Spider-Man 3 swings into cinemas in 2016, although he does have one particular villain in mind…

“Kraven,” Webb told ComicBook when asked about which bad guys he’s interesting in utilising for the next instalment of the rebooted Spider-Man universe. “Kraven. I like the idea of Kraven. The Vulture. Ock. I always thought the idea of Mysterio was interesting. Maybe Scorpion. But really, Kraven I think is kind of interesting. »

The Amazing Spider-Man producers rule out Miles Morales

1 May 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago Andrew Garfield spoke about his enthusiasm for his incarnation of Peter Parker “passing the torch” to Miles Morales at some point in Sony’s rebooted Spider-Man franchise, but it looks like we can forget about that for the foreseeable future, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach ruling out Morales, Ben Reilly or Miguel o’Hara making an appearance in the series…

“The one thing you cannot do, when you have a phenomena that has stood the test of time, you have to be true to the real character inside,” Arad told The Playlist. “Who is Peter Parker? What are the biggest effects on his life? Then you can draw in time, and you can consider today’s world in many ways. But to have multiple ones… I don’t know if you remember, but Marvel tried it. And it was almost the end of Spider-Man. »

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Review: 10 Things to Know About the Web-Slinging Sequel

1 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems as though the promotional onslaught for "Amazing Spider-Man 2" started at the tail end of the release of the first "Amazing Spider-Man." After all, that film, which successfully rebooted the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire series, this time with Andrew Garfield in the title role and "(500) Days of Summer" director Marc Webb behind the camera, came out less than two years ago -- over July 4th weekend, 2012. Considering the elaborate visual effects that go into these kinds of films (and equally elaborate marketing campaigns), work on the sequel probably did start before the first one ended, and the even more insurmountable job of selling the movie began shortly thereafter.

Still, it's less than two years later and the movie feels very much like the start of its own franchise, in earnest. Emma Stone returns as Gwen Stacy, as does Sally Field as Aunt May (and, in a ghostly capacity, Denis Leary »

Sony teases the line-up of The Sinister Six movie

30 April 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Sony prepares to expand its Spider-Man universe, the studio has offered up a little tease as to the potential line-up of villains for The Sinister Six courtesy of a mobile app tie-in with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, whereby Shazam users are able to access a video during Alicia Keys’ and Kendrick Lamar’s end credits song ‘It’s On Again’. Coming Soon managed to grab some screencaps, which seem to confirm Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and A.N. Other, who’s been speculated as either Mysterio or The Chameleon…

While this would appear to offer confirmation of the line-up, The Wrap is reporting that writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) is yet to decide upon the roster of The Sinister Six, as he is still finalising the script. But surely, if Goddard has so much as started the script, »

Wasted Goblin, Cartoonish Electro, Repetitive Relationships in 'Mediocre' Spider-Man Sequel

29 April 2014 8:36 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ review: ‘Professionally mediocre’ sequel is ‘loud, dull, and, forced’ (photo: Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′) Part of the appeal of Spider-Man, in all his paper and celluloid incarnations, is the character’s recognizably human scale. Neither a trillionaire industrialist (Batman), a Norse God (Thor), nor an indestructible Christ figure (Superman), Spider-Man is just awkward, orphaned teenager Peter Parker, living a drab middle-class existence in Queens, where he juggles girls, schoolwork, and superheroics. Yet it’s peer pressure, that classic teenage hardship, which seems to be the motivating force behind the professionally mediocre The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony, the studio that owns the rights to the Spider-Man character, has publicly admitted to coveting Disney’s massively successful multi-character Marvel universe and thinking how much they’d like one, too. So in this sequel to 2012’s redundant The Amazing Spider-Man, it’s not enough »

Andrew Garfield on the possibility of Miles Morales taking over as Spider-Man

28 April 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Sony has mapped out the future of its main Spidey franchise by announcing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, so far leading man Andrew Garfield has refused to commit himself one way or another to a fourth outing as Marvel’s wall-crawler. Of course, Garfield can’t stay in the role indefinitely (by the third movie, he’ll already be 32 years old), and now he’s spoken about the possibility of Ultimate Spider-Man’s Miles Morales picking up the mantle from him as the franchise continues.

“I have given that thought,” Garfield tells Comic Book Resources during a promotional interview for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character’s comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that. It’s something I’m really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of coexisting, or passing on the torch. »

New clip and TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

25 April 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may have been out in the UK for a week and a half now, but there’s still seven days to go before Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler swings into North American theaters, and so Sony has dropped a new clip and TV spot from the superhero sequel, which you can check out below…

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. »

Marc Webb teases J. Jonah Jameson appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 3

22 April 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there’s one thing that everyone can agree is missing from Sony’s rebooted Amazing Spider-Man series, it’s Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson – presumably, because J.K. Simmons done such a fine job at portraying him in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Well, it seems that we might get to see Jameson in 2016′s The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with director Marc Webb teasing his inclusion during Google+ Hangout to promote the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

“I like the idea very much of him coming up in the next film. It was more easy to accept a new Spider-Man than someone who could out do J.K. Simmons in that role. He is so iconic. That’s something we’ve really talked about. Obviously I love that character because he poses such an interesting dilemma for Spider-Man. The answer is I don’t know but I think »
