In a conversation with USA Today, in anticipation of the world premiere of the film’s teaser tomorrow, the men behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2 talked up both Peter Parker’s psyche in the new film and Electro. In an acknowledgement of the first film’s sort of dark, somber tone, director Marc Webb said we can expect something a bit different this time. Webb wants us to savor the more fun aspects of being Peter Parker.
“That’s going to be a side of him you’ll want to relish. This time, there’s a jollity we’ve really embraced.“
When the conversation turns to the film’s “big bad,” both Webb and star Andrew Garfield, shared some insight on the character’s portrayal. “Electro is a god in terms of the power that he wields. To be faced with that creates a whole host of problems, obstacles and drama, »

Tomorrow the trailer for The Amazing Spiderman 2 goes live, but in the meantime and to tide us over, we caught up with it's Marc Webb! What do you want people to know about The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Spider-Man is in for the greatest battle of his life. We begin the film with Spider-Man loving being Spider-Man – he's smooth, having fun and the best crime fighter the world has ever seen. He's got his webs, he's got his agility and he's got his wit. But soon, Peter will have to face a foe more powerful than he can imagine. In a tragic twist of fate, Max Dillon transforms from Spider-Man's biggest fan to his biggest foe. What is Spider-Man facing in this film? Peter Parker loves being Spider-Man. He wouldn’t change it for anything. But he’s always faced the challenge of how to be the hero without letting it take over his life. »

Do not adjust your sets. This actually happened.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) has already hosted the EMAs, appeared in the advertising campaign for the new Dodge Durango and released his fictional autobiography, and the movie still won't be out for another three weeks.
The latest installment in Anchorman 2: The Press Tour Continues saw Burgundy appear on a North Dakota news station at the weekend. Ferrell plays it remarkably straight, reading from the autocue (he reads those out exactly, don't you know) and keeping improvisation to a minimum. It's probably the most real-life representation of the character, especially with the comically mundane VTs to which they throw ('grow your hair' month, a new easy-luggage system and a rubbish truck that caught on fire).
Watch the rather surreal half hour below...

There's a seemingly confirmed spoiler in the poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Be warned...
Appreciating that lo-res versions of this have been doing the rounds online for the past few days, we've now got the official version of the first proper The Amazing Spider-Man 2 poster. And yep, that looks like the Green Goblin - in the guise of Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn - in the middle of it.
That said, he's not the only foe on here, as you'll see.
Do note that this is the Us banner. The UK release date is Friday 18th April 2014. And the full trailer for the film arrives on Thursday...

Sony continues its buzz-building promotion of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In the last few days we’ve gotten a look at a banner poster, teaser previews (which hint at a new title), and there’s the world premiere of the actual teaser coming up on Thursday. Now, to fuel the flames further, Sony has released an updated synopsis and cast list for the film:
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 »

The Green Goblin isn’t wearing a fancy Halloween costume in “Amazing Spider-Man 2,” as Marc Webb’s version looks like an actual goblin. The first glimpse of the re-imagined Marvel villain, previously played by both Willem Dafoe and James Franco in director Sam Raimi’s trilogy, popped up on the web earlier this week when a photo of a triptych poster display began circulating. A Twitter user, however, has managed to upload a much-finer version of the Goblin, and it appears to give away some clues as to what version of the character Webb is presenting in his sequel to 2012′s “The Amazing. »

When you separate The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from all the anticipation and rumor-mongering about just how many super-powered baddies will make an appearance in the sequel, the film is actually a pretty straightforward coming of (young adult) age story. Well, under fantastical circumstances, anyway.
That fact has gotten lost in the fray of late, but with good reason. A triptych poster for Amazing Spider-Man 2 was spotted just last week, featuring Spider-Man enemies Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti) – with character designs modeled after their counterparts in the modernized Ultimate Spider-Man comic book continuity – alongside a new version of the Green Goblin. But which member of the Osborn clan undergoes ...

On Thursday the new trailer for The Amazing Spiderman 2 arrives (don’t forget to see the teasers for it click here) but in the meantime, and official synopsis has found its way to our inbox! --- 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. »

By the time Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives, it could bring with it some of the worst kept secrets of any upcoming superhero movie. Even before the sequel was announced, there was speculation that director Marc Webb could be steering the franchise toward a showdown between Spider-Man and the super-villain team, The Sinister Six – and that’s been unofficially confirmed several times over.
A recent banner spotted overseas showed some of the first official images of Jamie Foxx’s Electro (the supposed central villain of the film) and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino (in mechanical form) taking on Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) with the help of a third villain… one riding a familiar-looking glider device.
Speculation has raged ever ...

In the latest entries of an ever-increasing trend, Sony has released “teasers” for their upcoming Spider-Man 2 teaser. Here are three of them, aimed at the latino market. None of them reveal, well, anything. Just shots of Spidey web-slinging or, in one case, free-falling from the sky.
The one newsworthy bit here is the reveal of a possible tagline for the title. While everyone has been calling the movie, simply, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, these teaser previews refer to the film as Spider-Man 2: The Threat of Electro. That’s a literal translation, and its likely that the english version will be something that sounds less corny (or so, we hope). This does indicate, though, that Electro is the true antagonist of the picture.
Last week, speculation ran wild as a banner poster for the movie was revealed that showed Spider-Man facing off against three villains at once- Rhino, »

Does anyone else feel like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is overcompensating? I mean, really overcompensating, like the middle aged guy who buys a monstrous Hummer or garish sportscar to make up for the fact that he isn't quite the spring chicken he used to be. Sony's Amazing Spider-Man sequel looks like the mid-life crisis of Superhero films: flashy, bloated, and desperate.
Let's be honest: The Avengers has potentially ruined the superhero movie genre. Any studio with licensed comic book characters is now trying to figure out how to turn their single franchise into a multi-headed monster that will give birth to multiple mega-blockbusters and keep them cash flush for years to come. The Marvel paradigm was unique in that it had never been done before. They had a very clear picture of what they wanted »

When Spider-Man was released in 2002, it almost singlehandedly laid the groundwork for the current superhero boom. Smart, funny, bold and kinetic, its influence can still be felt in everything from Batman Begins to The Avengers. 2004's Spider-Man 2 went even further; roping in Michael Chabon to enrich the themes and deepen the characters in a way that's pretty much become standard for modern comic book films. And then came Spider-Man 3.
Spider-Man 3 is just as influential as its predecessors. Why? Because it's the perfect example of how a sure-fire hit can »

Here, we get to see the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Marvel Legends 2014 packaging for the very first time, via the solicitation photos that have been sent out to Asian retailers… If these action figures are based on characters from the movie we could see Arachne, Toxin, Abe Jenkins(?) Black Cat, Carnage, Beetle, and the Superior Spider-Man. But most tie-in toys add additional characters that never appear in the film, so don't expect them. In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, »
One thing I'll give the people behind Amazing Spider-Man 2, they're thinking really big. If the rumors are to be believed, they have villains plans not only for Amazing Spider-Man 3, but also 4. That's not what this post is about, though. It's actually about the villains that we do know are in 2. We had previously confirmed the Rhino and Shocker, but an official banner from an event in Las Vegas gives us a confirmed third: the Green Goblin. It also gives us a look at all three. »

Can Spider-Man come out and play? As usual, in-theater marketing beats online marketing to the street and thus we have to start with these low quality images. The first official trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sequel arrives on December 5th next week, and it's likely Sony is waiting until that lands to debut this online. In the meantime, a fan has taken a few photos of a brand new promo banner on display at a movie theater ("in Red Rock casino in Vegas") showing Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and what looks like three villains: Electro, Green Goblin (aka Harry Osborn) and Rhino in some kind of mech suit. Take a look! Here's the original photos taken by Jeser Piedra, @arkhamhc, of the new Amazing Spider-Man 2 banner: Update! We've added yet another photo of this three-poster banner, tweeted out by @crimsong19 today: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is »

Peter Parker’s been hanging back while his buddies (in the comic books, not the movies… yet) Thor, Captain America and the X-Men have soaked up the public’s attention for all things Marvel, over this past month. However, this December will be Pete’s time to shine, as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 kicks off its marketing push with its first official trailer release (not counting the Comic-Con footage that’s probably leaked online by this point).
The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer drops online on December 5th, before it begins showing in front of select reels of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in theaters a week later. We anticipate Sony unveiling ...

Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.
This week: Villains! DC made a whole bad-guy documentary and Chris Cooper has a few words about our “introduction” to Norman Osborn!
Happy post-holiday, everyone. I’ll assume you’re either hungover or eating a lot of cold leftovers. Or maybe you went in to work today knowing that no one was doing to be doing anything really important, so why not get paid for it?
Or, Lord Forgive You, you’re in line for Black Friday right now. Please do not kill anyone.
Me? I’ve been watching DVDs and trying to make myself feel better about DC Comics.

What happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas anymore, thanks to smart phones. Twitter user Marvel_Spider tweeted a photo that a follower/friend of his took at the Red Rock casino in Las Vegas. That photo was of an upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 banner that had not one, not two, but three villains on the poster.

That’s Jamie Foxx’s Electro floating on the right, a Green Goblin (you say Cooper, I say DeHaan) floating on a glider towards the center and a grey, bulky mech-suit that must be Paul Giamatti’s Rhino on the left.
So toss out your expectation of what’s going to be considered a “surprise” in this new installment of Asm.

Could Sony be cramming in even more villains for The Amazing Spider-man 2? After taking on Rhys Ifans’ Doctor Curt Conners (aka The Lizard) in Marc Webb’s rebooted The Amazing Spider-man franchise, he’s going to have his hands full in the future.
With Jamie Foxx assuring Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) a hard time as primary villain Max ‘Electro’ Dillon, it’s expected the sequel will introduce the likes of Black Cat (Felicity Jones), Vulture (Colm Feore) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti) as part the Siniser Six. Not forgetting Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan as the father and son duo Norman and Harry Osborne, who as know, will make a rather evil metamorphosis into The Green Goblin(s).
Well, the viral site The Daily Bugle journalist ’Ned Leeds’ is hinting at even more villainy in his latest report!

In any comic book movie, one of the key decisions the filmmaker must make is how best to translate a superhero’s costume to the big screen. Not only must style and authenticity be considered, but practicality also becomes a huge factor. When it works (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy), it feels just right. When it doesn’t (Batman & Robin, Green Lantern) it’s an unwanted distraction.
There are few more iconic superhero costumes than the red and blue of Spider-Man. Of the live-action iterations there have been so far, Tobey Maguire’s costume is Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 is the most beloved, although Andrew Garfield’s homemade superhero attire was quite similar (if a little brighter) to Maguire’s in ...
