“Welcome to my neighborhood, Spider-Man! Would you be my… could you be my… neighbor?”
How do you begin to describe Venom? He’s part antagonist, part anti-hero. He’s part man, part monster. He’s one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes, but he’s also sometimes a grudging and reluctant ally. Whatever he is, Venom’s larger than life personality and twisted appearance has made him incredibly popular with many of the artists and designers here at Sideshow – so for us, adding him to our rogues gallery has been a true labor of love!
There’s no denying this all new Premium Format™ Figure is Big!

One of the biggest shocks in The Clone Conspiracy came when we learned that a resurrected Gwen Stacy had been working with the Jackal (secretly Ben Reilly) the whole time as he enacts a scheme to bring back Peter Parker’s greatest enemies and loved ones from the grave. Now, those two will finally come face to face in next week’s issue #23 of The Amazing Spider-Man.
While the wall-crawler has come across various versions of his greatest love over the years, this is supposedly the real deal, and one of Spider-Man’s most heartbreaking defeats came when she was murdered by the Green Goblin. However, as you can see in the preview below, Peter’s having a hard time accepting that she’s his Gwen and not just another clone who shares her memories.

Garfield, 33, gave 28-year-old Stone a standing ovation as she nabbed her first Golden Globe award on Sunday for her performance in La La Land, and the actor said it’s “bliss” to watch his ex-girlfriend succeed.
“I’m her biggest fan as an artist. I’m constantly inspired by her work. I’m constantly inspired by how she handles and holds herself,” Garfield said on this week’s episode of Vanity »

Over the years, Wilson Fisk has established himself as one of the Marvel Universe’s most diabolical villains. After first appearing in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man, the Kingpin of Crime went on to spend years terrorizing Daredevil and their battles would ultimately become the stuff of legend.
However, big changes are coming to the Kingpin’s world this February, as Marvel is launching a new, ongoing creative series from the team of writer Matthew Rosenberg and newcomer Ben Torres. Along with a huge batch of variant covers and preview pages, a synopsis for the series has been released which reveals that…Fisk is turning over a new leaf?!
The Kingpin is out for a clean start. Wilson Fisk returns to the city he loves with a new goal in mind—to make his mark as a titan of legitimate industry. First things first though, he’ll need to repair his public image. »

It’s pretty hard to find an actor that’s as high profile as Andrew Garfield right now. That’s exactly why he was Stephen Colbert’s most recent guest on The Late Show. The once shy seeming guy who played Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network where he co-starred with Jesse Eisenberg has officially evolved into an A-List actor and potential Oscar Winner. At first Garfield took on the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spiderman and it appeared he might be headed down blockbuster alley. However 2016 has been the year of amazing roles for the young British actor. First

More and more little details continue to drip out surrounding Andrew Garfield’s departure from the role of Spider-Man. In spite of the fact that Sony had announced release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, it went on to pull the plug on the series after the second movie failed to fully ignite the box office. Garfield was duly dropped as the incumbent webslinger, and with Marvel coming on board too, Tom Holland was duly cast in the role. Holland, of course, debuted his Spider-Man in last year’s Captain America: Civil War.
There had been rumours from 2015 that suggested Garfield had in fact »
Welcome to The Top 5, where every week, we list five things for a given topic. These topics can range from "5 Things We Liked About The Power Rangers Teaser Trailer" to "5 Things We Want (Or Don't Want) In Ben Affleck's The Batman."

W's annual Best Performances issue is due out this week, and the mag has released a stunning collection of portraits online. The list is made up of quite a few comic book movie and TV actors and actresses, including the likes of Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man), Natalie Portman (Thor), Ruth Negga (Preacher), Felicity Jones (Rogue One), Amy Adams (Batman V Superman), Adam Driver (The Force Awakens), Mahershala Ali (Luke Cage), and Matthew McConaughey (The Dark Tower). Obviously they're not all being honored for those particular performances, but most of the movies they appeared in last year are well worth a look.

Speaking to The Guardian, Andrew Garfield has commented on the rumors that the reason Sony wanted to boot him as Spider-Man was due to him no showing an event in Brazil where The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was to be announced. Apparently, some people believe that the no-show was intentional by Garfield so that he wouldn’t have to continue playing the superhero, which is a quite grounded theory considering his open heartbreak regarding the experience.
Setting the record straight, Garfield stated, “No, I don’t think so” when asked if it was self-sabotage, followed by “What I’ll proudly say is that I didn’t compromise who I was, I was only ever myself. And that might have been difficult for some people.”
Garfield then launched into an explanation of what he tried and failed to bring to the table for the web-slinger, stating that: “I’d been reading the mythologists Joseph Campbell and James Hillman. »

Around the time the "Sony Hack" emails found their way online, we heard that a big part of Sony's decision to partner with Marvel for a Spider-Man reboot was the fact that company head Kaz Hirai wanted Andrew Garfield gone. That reportedly stemmed from the British actor failing to appear at an event he was holding, an event which would have seen Hirai announce The Amazing Spider-Man 3! So, is there any truth to that? You'll have to ask Hirai, but in an interview with The Guardian, Garfield was asked about possibly being "let go" for missing that event in Brazil and whether he skipped that in the hope of getting fired (after all, he's made no secret of his disappointment with the franchise). "No, I don’t think so," Garfield laughed when it was put to him that he may have been a no-show to self-sabotage himself. "What I »
It’s always refreshing to hear an actor talk candidly about a project, and as Andrew Garfield continues to make his way through the press tour for his new film Silence, he’s been doing just that. However, it isn’t his comments on Martin Scorsese’s movie that have been drawing all the attention. Rather, it’s what he’s been saying about his time playing Spidey in The Amazing Spider-Man series that’s been making the most headlines.
As we all know by now, Sony’s attempt to reboot the series was met with a very mixed response. While Garfield was great in the role and tried his best to make it work, the movies themselves just weren’t very good and the studio pulled the plug after the second outing, choosing to scrap plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and instead make a deal with Marvel to allow »
