The Amazing Spider-Man 2 review CGI pizzazz, but an unnecessary film

19 April 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The latest Marvel output adds little to the mix

We've all become used to a constant flow of Marvel product as a fact of life but does anyone need these films, apart from the most addicted comics obsessives, and Stan Lee's financial advisers? The rebooted Spider-Man franchise, launched almost as soon as Tobey Maguire had hung up his web-shooters, seems altogether redundant, but it must be said that Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man fulfilled its remit with laudable coherence and efficiency. His follow-up, though, is more like a taster menu than a movie proper, or like a garbled "Previously on" sequence that thinks it's a whole mini-series.

Will a 'Spider-Man' / 'Avengers' Crossover Ever Happen?

18 April 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we reported that a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past will be attached as an end credits scene in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which got many fans excited for possible Marvel crossovers between Sony, 20th Century Fox and even Marvel Studios. It was later revealed that director Marc Webb is still under contract at 20th Century Fox, and the studio would only let him make the sequel if Sony promoted X-Men: Days of Future Past for free.

When asked about the possibility of Sony joining forces with Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producer Avi Arad revealed that a cross-over will only happen when the studios have run out of other ideas, although that likely won't happen anytime soon.

"I think I'm probably a little bit of the militant here. I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas. »

We love superheroes, you love superheroes, most everyone loves superheroes. Superhero movies have become so incredibly popular, sometimes it’s easy to forget their roots on the ink-covered pages of comic books.

Thn’s Top Five Stan Lee Cameos

18 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This year is an incredibly busy one for Marvel and as a result it’s a great time to be either a geek or film fan, as 2014 will see the release of four different Marvel productions on the big screen (not to mention a whole host of television projects). We have already caught up with Steve Rogers in the excellent Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next month we will be travelling back to the seventies to prevent a cataclysmic future in X-men: Days Of Future Past.

This week UK theatres has seen the highly anticipated return of our favourite web-slinger in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-man 2 and to celebrate the release, Thn will count down the top five cameos made by the man who started it all…I am of course referring to the creative genius and superhero godfather that is Stan Lee.

17 April 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Peter Parker by day, Spider-Man by night…Spidey, also known as The Amazing Spider-Man, is one of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and The Amazing Spider-man 2 from Columbia Pictures opens May 2.

Secret Deal Behind 'Spider-Man' / 'X-Men' Post-Credits Revealed

16 April 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported that fans who stay to the end of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 credits will be treated to a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While the scene does not tie the two franchises together, many have wondered why the rival studios would team up for this kind of cross-promotion, with speculation that they may be teaming up for some sort of superhero crossover in the future. Variety has a new report which reveals that a Spider-Man and X-Men hybrid movie is not in the works, and that there is a simple, contractual reason why this extra scene was added to prints of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

When The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was in negotiations to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the talks hit a brief snag, since the filmmaker is still under contract to make one more movie with Fox Searchlight, »

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Features 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Post-Credits Scene

16 April 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In an interesting twist, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox are working together to cross promote their upcoming Marvel movies, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 featuring a post-credits action sequence from X-Men: Days of Future Past that is exclusive to the sequel's release in theaters.

While Post-Credits sequences have become expected as of late, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 decided to forgo any type of tease in setting up The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Its unclear if early fan outrage at this spurred the unique merging of these two Marvel films, but now, U.K. residents can see the sequence when the movie opens in theaters today, and U.S. audiences can see it when the film opens in the states on May 2nd.

The sequence does not tie the two films together in any way. It's merely a 'reward' for those who decide to stay seated throughout the credits. Empire first reported on the news, »

Andrew Garfield Says Spider-Man is Jewish

15 April 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Andrew Garfield shared some of his opinions on Spider-Man, stating that the character is Jewish. "Spider-man is neurotic," said the actor. "Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off. He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature." Garfield continued: "I hope Jewish people won't mind the cliche, because my father's Jewish. I have that in me for sure. He's an over-thinker. It would be much easier if he was a life-saving robot." Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee, who is Jewish. The character, however, has been married in the comics and had his wedding in a church. »

Channing "Gambit" Tatum and Your Favorite Superheroes

15 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've been quite blocked today (apologies) so I'd like to turn the time over to you for an open discussion. With news coming that Channing Tatum would love to play Gambit in a movie (poor Taylor Kitsch. It's not his fault everyone has tried to scrub X-Men Origins: Wolverine from their memory) Fox will surely be jumping all over that to make it happen.

Though the superhero movie boom will surely die out as all movie trends do eventually, we have no idea how long it will last so we'll just try to enjoy it while it does rather than bristle against it.

The other day on Facebook Stan Lee posted a 'name your five favorite superheroes' thread and I answered more quickly than I knew I could. Without thinking about it five names popped right into mind: Nightcrawler, The Human Torch, Storm, Spider-Man, and The Scarlet Witch. Other than »

The Many Masks of Spider-Man — Infographic

14 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When the first image of the new costume for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released last year, most people (including much of our staff) were convinced that it was a fake, photoshopped poster. It seemed like quite a departure from the suit Andrew Garfield wore in the first movie, and it looked suspiciously like the costume designs used in Sam Raimi’s films. But upon closer inspection, the costumes look very different from each other. Our Spidey-sense was way off that day!

The new costume in director Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel is the most faithful interpretation of the suit we’ve seen so far in a live action film. It looks straight out of the comics! But Prinster’s “The Mighty Masks of Spider-Man” infographic proves that the filmmakers could have literally put Peter Parker in a paper bag and still technically remained faithful to the comics.
