10 Freaky Yet Awesome X-Men You Probably Forgot

11 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

The X-Men franchise has existed since 1963 and has had countless iterations across media. Most comic book fans attribute its continued success to it’s applicability to real life conflicts, the chief conflict being minority oppression. The X-Men are hated and feared for being different, just like (insert race/gender/creed/religious affiliation/dress size). So of course, these Defenders of the Disenfranchised are represented by…attractive, fit, upper class and educated white people. Kind of subverts the whole minority thing. The thing is, if X-Men like Cyclops or Angel really existed, they’d be on the cover of Esquire posing with Kate Upton. They’re about as oppressed as your high school football team. Even the “weird” X-Men like Nightcrawler and Beast would still get more action than you do. What happened to the super-team that Stan Lee proudly proclaimed were “The strangest heroes in Marvel”?

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Promo Art with Electro, Rhino and Goblin

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Maybe it feels like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already came out. Technically, it did last week, as it debuted internationally in theaters across the globe. Those of us in the U.S. still have another week and a half to go, which means Sony Pictures is still promoting the sequel as much as they can. Today, we get a ton of new promo art images and photos from the movie. Seen here are three Wall posters featuring the main villains Goblin, Electro and Rhino, which are available to purchase at Wal-Mart. We also get a handful of new photos featuring Chris Cooper turning a nice shade of green as Norman Osborn, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in what might be her final moments alive. Is she spending them well? Stay tuned after the images for how the recent split between writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci may affect The Amazing Spider-Man 3. »

10 Best Comic Storylines Featuring The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Villains

21 April 2014 12:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been heavily marketed around its three villains: Electro, Rhino and Harry Osborn/Green Goblin. And while a case could be made that the film is bogged down with too many bad guys, all three characters have starred in some memorable storylines from the comics that are worth checking out.

Electro, aka, Max Dillon, first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #9 during the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko Silver Age era. His ability to harness electricity has led to a number of entertaining one-on-one confrontations with Spider-Man over the years. Electro is also a core member of the anti-Spidey supervillain stable, the Sinister Six.

Rhino, aka Aleksei Sytsevich, was one of the very first villains created by iconic Spider-Man artist John Romita Sr., debuting in Amazing Spider-Man #41 in 1966. Often portrayed as brutish and dull, Rhino has also spent a portion of his career antagonizing the »

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.

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, »
