‘Spider-Man 2′ To Swing Across NBCU’s TV Networks In Promotional Pact

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spider-Man can swing from city skyscrapers, subdue villains like Doctor Octopus and Electro, and climb up walls like the insect after which he is named. Yet in all his escapades, he has never been able to force a major media conglomerate to run ads for his movie across multiple TV networks – and then tailor the ads for each outlet’s viewership.

Until now, that is.

As part of an advertising pact with NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures will hawk its movie “The Amazing Spider Man 2” across Bravo, E!, USA, Syfy, Telemundo and mun2, as well as on a customized page on Fandango, the company’s web-based movie-ticketing service. Starting today, the NBCU networks will run a single spot that shows a search for five so-called “Spiderfans” or extremely passionate fans of the movie franchise. Starting April 28, each participating network will run specially created 60-second spots that play up themes relevant to viewers of each outlet. »

The Amazing Spider-Man 3: Who should play Mary Jane Watson?

5 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Warning: The above video contains major Amazing Spider-Man 2 spoilers

It's no bad thing that Shailene Woodley's scenes as Mary Jane Watson were cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – between Dane DeHaan's unstable Harry Osborn, Jamie Foxx's nerd-turned-supervillain Electro and the expanded mythology surrounding the Parker family, Marc Webb's sequel already felt overstuffed.

But Mary Jane is still in line to play a major role in the third film, and Woodley has more or less confirmed that her schedule on the Divergent sequels will make her return very unlikely.

With that in mind, we've rounded up ten more actresses with whom Andrew Garfield's Peter could hit the jackpot.

Juno Temple

Last year's BAFTA Rising Star award winner already has a few high-profile roles lined up, alongside Angelina Jolie in Maleficent and Ray Liotta in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But she's yet to star in a franchise, »

10 Actors You Won’t Believe Almost Played Spider-Man

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

Screenrant.com

Spider-Man is arguably the most popular superhero of all-time – there’s something inherently attractive about the idea of being imbued with his web-swinging abilities, not to mention the fact that he’s totally nerdy and yet still manages to keep ahold of the voluptuous, gorgeous Mary Jane Watson. It’s the sort of life that many of us might long for, although the constant onslaught of villains makes it a little less desirable (but only a little). Yes, it’s true to say that Spider-Man encompasses everything required to make a great superhero: his popularity is justified.

Spider-Man first made it to film 13 years ago, when director Sam Raimi – best known at the time for the likes of his Evil Dead movies – gave us what is still perhaps one of the best and my faithful comic book adaptations to have ever hit our screens. With Toby Maguire leading »

Marc Webb discusses a major spoiler from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

20 April 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re yet to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and really don’t want to be spoiled, then you ought to stop reading and turn back now. Seriously. Major spoilers follow. You have been warned….

Well, after a couple of years of rampant speculation, and a marketing campaign that pretty much gave it away anyway, Sony and director Marc Webb took a leaf out of the classic Spider-Man comic book arc ‘The Night Gwen Stacy Died’ with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Emma Stone’s Gwen fell to her death during the climactic battle between Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan). Speaking to Digital Spy, Webb offered some insight into the decision to incorporate Gwen’s death into the sequel…

“It was something that, you know, as a fan of the comic books, it had such a profound effect on the culture, and me, even though »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swung into UK cinemas this week and already looks to be another box office hit for the web-slinging superhero franchise.

There are also big twists and turns, including one big shocker that will leave Spidey fans stunned. Marc Webb and Dane DeHaan talk to Digital Spy about the specifics above, but we want to know what you thought of the film and it's big plot turns.

Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield: 'Justin Bieber's fame is not healthy'

19 April 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrew Garfield has said that he could have turned out like popstar Justin Bieber if he had become famous at 16.

The 30-year-old actor recently spoke to Time Out London about his success, revealing that he's glad that fame came to him in his late 20s.

He shared: "If I'd had these opportunities when I was younger, I would have been Justin Bieber. If you are a 16-year-old kid and you can do whatever the f**k you want, you're making trillions of dollars and you have a leopard-print Ferrari, it's not healthy.

"If I was going through what I'm going through now when I was 16, I might have ended up in jail."

Bieber has made headlines for his alleged bad behaviour - such as his suspicion of DUI arrest and most recently missing a court date.

Garfield gained fame after appearing in David Fincher's The Social Network in 2010. He »

Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

19 April 2014 4:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

There is a common misconception that I feel I need to deal with. In 2007 Spider-Man 3 turned out to be quite the travesty. The main issue leveled at it was that it had too many villains. That was never the case, how ever many people said it. It was also a bloody lazy thing to say. The characters were utterly mishandled. Long established story elements were messed around with, and the one villain that everyone wanted to see was completely miscast. Emo Parker however, cannot be explained. That was just terrible. »

How to Play... a superhero: Tips from Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman

19 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.

It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?

With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »

Video: Man Creates Real-Life Spider-man Web Shooter

18 April 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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 (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). 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 (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. Pretty cool eh? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out in the UK and Ireland now, »

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. »

Garfield's "Spider-Man" Will Never Crossover?

18 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Keen to see Andrew Garfield's "The Amazing Spider-Man" character crossover with the X-Men or "The Avengers"? You'll be waiting a hell of a long time.

Producer Avi Arad, who has been attached to all five live-action "Spider-Man" films produced thus far, tells IGN that basically such a crossover will only happen after he's out of this franchise:

"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. There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six. The relationship between Spider-Man and Venom will bring a whole other world in.

We really feel very confident that we have so much to do. Peter Parker is unique; he's really different. He's not an Avenger. He's not an X-Man. He's unique and we revere that. And we'd rather work really »
