While there's been a lot of footage released for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, today features the debut of the film's first official clip. Even as Webb recently addressed the concern of too many villains in this sequel, it wouldn't be much of a movie without a bad guy. Luckily, we get a look at the main one in this new clip, as Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) attempts to talk down Max Dillon/Electro (Jamie Foxx) before the situation gets drastically out of hand. The film also stars Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2nd.

With Marvel Studios already establishing a firm grip on the big screen and small screen, they're branching out to a new form of entertainment with the short-form documentary series Marvel Tales to Astonish. The studio released the trailer for their first installment, Marvel Tales to Astonish: Civil War, which features luminaries Joss Whedon and Stan Lee discuss how real-world issues such as the Patriot Act lead to the 2006 Civil War comic book series, where the country was divided over the Superhero Registration Act. Iron Man lead the charge for registration, while Captain America stood with the anti-registration camp. Check out the trailer, then read on for more details about this 13-minute documentary.

Sony has released a new featurette for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that focuses on title star Andrew Garfield and his journey to becoming the man behind the mask, Peter Parker. The featurette contains commentary from director Marc Webb, co-star Jamie Foxx and Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, among others, and includes behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the movie. It also includes footage from Garfield's San Diego Comic-Con appearances, including his surprise 2011 appearance in which he came out of the crowd to ask the panel a question in disguise in a store-bought costume and won over fandom with his chest-thumping, teary-eyed speech about the importance of Spider-Man. The movie opens May 2nd.

• Full coverage: The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A major spoiler regarding the death of a leading character in forthcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 appears to have been let slip via a cereal advert.
The spoiler, which readers can avoid by turning away now, was revealed in a commercial spot for Kellogg's' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Web-Slinging Game. It is one of three videos released into the internet over the weekend, all of which are narrated by Marvel comics icon Stan Lee.
The offending video clearly states that Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn, a character who in the comics and previous big screen versions has doubled as villain The Green Goblin, has died as the film's events unfold. His son Harry Osborn, played by Dane DeHaan, is seen inheriting Oscorp Industries, the multimillion-dollar corporation founded by Norman. »

We know that Chris Cooper will play Norman Osborn in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." According to an older interview, Cooper said that his role will be small in the film, but will be much bigger in the third installment. Today we have video from Kellog's, giving us an introduction to OsCorp. It's narrated by Stan Lee and reveals a spoiler from the film. Check out the video below to see everything for yourself. Spoilers Ahead: According to the video, it is revealed that Norman Osborn died and left the company to his son, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan). Since Cooper's role will be bigger in the third film, it's very likely that Norman didn't actually died, but just faked his death. Video: »
"Fantastic Four" movie producer Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass"), was recently interviewed about his developing "Fantastic Four" feature, to be directed by Josh Trank ("Chronicle"), following the Fox release of 2 films directed by Tim Story.
"It's a total reboot, that's for sure," said Vaughn about the new film. "It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones."
"It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
Aiming for a more "...grounded superhero and sci-fi..." action adventure, the screenplay by Jeremy Slater is being 'polished' by best-selling author, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter").
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the team's original comic book characterization was initially different from all other superheroes, because they did not conceal their identities, leading the public to be both suspicious and in awe of them. Also, they frequently argued and disagreed with each other. »

In partnership with Kelloggs' Web-Slinging Game, Sony has unleashed three clips from the upcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, narrated by none other than Spidey co-creator and Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee; check them out after the official synopsis - although beware, the last video may contain a spoiler...
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. With the emergence of Electro, Peter »

Want a real-life story worthy of Marvel Comics’ long-running series What If? The current wave of Marvel movies could have happened a lot earlier, or much differently, if plans begun in the early ’70s had come to fruition. The late French director Alain Resnais, who died just a week ago, was responsible for some of the […]

Sony Pictures are keen to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as big a success as possible, and their intensive marketing campaign has now stretched to three very spoilery clips from the upcoming sequel. Narrated by Stan Lee, they’re made up of almost entirely never before seen footage, but what they tell us arguably results in even more questions!
The clips (which were released thanks to a new Kellogg’s app promoting the movie), we not only get to see plenty of great shots of Spider-Man in action, but also learn the fate of Norman Osborn, the reason for his son Harry’s return, what exactly Aleksei Sytsevich is trying to steal, and even hear Jamie Foxx name himself “Electro”.

Three new promos for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been released online.
The videos originated from tie-in game Kellogg's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Web-Slinging Game.
The first one focuses on villainous heir - and Peter Parker's former best friend - Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), and his acquisition of the Oscorp Industries experimental research empire.
Lee's voiceover describes how Spider-Man has repeatedly saved New York City, before teasing the fact that he may be about to come up against his most resilient foes yet. »
Sony Pictures has released three clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Each is narrated by Stan Lee, and they include a lot of new footage. The clips come from some kind of Kellogg's swinging game. If you're excited for the movie, then these are definitely worth watching as some of the footage is pretty fun. The movie is set to hit theaters on May 2nd!

You can’t sell a big superhero movie these days without product integration or cross-promotion, and thanks to Sony’s team-up with Kellogg’s, three new promo clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have landed online. The clips show off some meaty bits of new footage (including Oscorp and Norman Osborn), but they’re mostly notable because they feature narration from comic book legend Stan Lee, adding a retro, heroic feel to the footage. In the Marc Webb-directed sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp. Hit the jump to watch the three promo clips, one of which is slightly spoilery. The film also stars Emma Stone, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak, »

Two years ago, Sony’s method for getting the general public interested in seeing its Spider-Man movie franchise reboot was to unveil some 25 minutes total of the film ahead of time, and the final result was a somewhat-contentious superhero flick that grossed $752 million worldwide. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, as the saying goes, which is why Sony is repeating that blitzkrieg marketing approach for this year’s followup, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Case in point, there’ve been multiple trailers, featurettes and TV spots released for the film already, but now we can add three clips from the movie to the stack. Bear in mind, some of this material was previously shown in earlier commercials, while the clips themselves are sequences from the movie that have been cut-up and (in some cases) spliced together ...

There’s a promotion going on with special Amazing Spider-Man 2 boxes of Kellogg’s cereal. You can download an app and point it at the box and that box will unlock exclusive content about Marc Webb’s sequel.
Well, like most times “exclusive” is thrown around, it doesn’t apply for long, as three clips that include mini-summations of ASM2′s plot points narrated by Stan Lee are up on the YouTube.
From the Rhino’s theft of plutonium, to Harry’s taking over of Oscorp and finally a prelude to Electro and Spidey’s battle in Times Square, these clips cobble together some new footage and contextualize it in a cool way.
May 2nd is close enough that I think I want to save some stuff for the movie now. How about you?

Release Stan Lee! We're sure someone in the Sony marketing department made that command as the promotional train for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" continues relentlessly, with more more more more, and then hoping that by time the movie comes around, you're beaten into submission to buy tickets for the web-slinging sequel. Today brings with it three clips from the movie (as part of a Kellogg's promo), but with the bonus feature of Stan Lee narrating them in case you didn't feel like actually watching footage from the movie. We guess if you're a Stan Lee nut this is right up your alley, but otherwise we're not quite sure what the point is. That said, no Spidey movie can pass without Lee making a cameo or sharing his enthusiasm and so it goes here. Providing background on Oscorp and more, we reckon if you know nothing of the series, this is probably helpful. »

Three new clips have debuted from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which reveal intriguing details about the sequel, which came from Kellogg's Web-Slinging Game. Stan Lee narrates these scenes, which show Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) foiling a plutonium heist engineered by Rhino (Paul Giamatti), the webbed wonder's introduction to the powerful Electro (Jamie Foxx) and a look inside OsCorp, which is now being run by Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan). Check out this footage, then read on for more details.
The most intriguing development we learn from these clips is that Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) actually dies in this sequel, which is surprising since the actor has teased that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 only serves as a brief introduction to the character, with "better things" to come in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. However, he did reveal in September that Norman is "on his last legs," and a Daily Bugle viral post from December »
