As Sony prepares to unleash The Amazing Spider-Man 2, producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad are busy plotting the expansion of the studio's Marvel franchise with spin-off movies for The Sinister Six and Venom, and during a chat with SFX the duo have revealed a little about their plans to develop a fully-fledged Spidey movie universe.
"It’s a challenge in every sense," said Tolmach with regards to The Sinister Six. "Obviously questions of traditional hero/villain dynamics have to be looked at. At the same time it’s an awesome challenge, because some of the greatest characters are in fact villains, and how you construct that is so much fun. People love those bad characters if they’re good bad characters, and love to watch them. And nobody’s all good, nobody’s all bad, and so where we end up with that story, I think, is a really awesome challenge, »

Considering the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield as Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker was one of the highlights of 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, it shouldn't be a surprise that one of the latest clips for the upcoming sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, would focus specifically on Peter and Gwen. Also, considering that the sequel is called The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro in some territories, it shouldn't be a surprise that the other latest clip would feature Spider-Man in what might be his first encounter with Electro (Jamie Foxx). What is a little surprising is that Sony would release this much footage of the movie with a few months left before the sequel's release, but it's doubtful fans will complain.
In the first clip, Peter and Gwen are hiding in an Oscorp closet, where they share a romantic moment before Peter covers Gwen's escape. In the second clip, »

We've been hearing rumors about what will happen to Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" for about a year. Recently, Sony Pictures revealed that he'll be dying in the movie, with many assuming that he will probably fake his own death. Spoilers Ahead: Today we have a shot from the post-credits scene from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," showing Norman's cryogenically frozen head. In the scene, we see The Man in the Shadows from "The Amazing Spider-Man" walk up to the head and whisper, "wake up old friend." So why is Norman dead? Apparently he ended up with a mysterious illness that can only be cured with Peter Parker's blood. Both Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) And Electro (Jamie Foxx) attempt to obtain the superhero's blood, but fail. And as the post-credits scene suggests, a cure has been found and Norman will return in "The Amazing Spider-Man 3." Photo: (click »

Even for a tentpole summer blockbuster, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has had an onslaught of advertising leading up to its May 2 release. Marc Webb’s webslinger sequel has revealed several trailers, behind-the-scenes featurettes and a ton of character posters. However, much of its marketing campaign has focused on Electro, the supercharged villain and member of the Sinister Six crime syndicate.
In the newest online clip for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man and Jaime Foxx’s Electro are at a stand-off in Times Square. As a crowd of onlookers (plus Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy) prepare for a face off, snipers are ready to shoot at the electrifying villain if he makes a false move, which is inevitable. This one-minute clip is likely a lead-up to one of the film’s major action sequences and offers quite the tease for fans of the franchise. Unfortunately, the clip cuts »

Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) reminisce about their childhoods and the parents who abandoned them in a new clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Sony Pictures have released the first clip from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it wastes no time in treating us to our best look yet at Jamie Foxx in action as Electro right in the middle of Times Square.
As Spider-Man attempts to calm the confused and powered up Max Dillon down before he hurts anyone, the NYPD make the mistake of taking a shot at him and setting off thee chain of events which will presumably lead to him becoming the villainous Electro. It’s a tense scene and the special effects are top-notch.
With around five weeks until its UK release and seven until Spider-Man swings into Us theatres, it seems early to be releasing clips like this, but it’s hard to complain about getting another sneak peek at the sequel!

(Cbr) When it was revealed that "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" would feature not only Jamie Foxx as Electro but also Paul Giamatti as Rhino and Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin, many fans began to express concern about villain overload, which has been the undoing of more than one superhero-movie sequel. However, director Marc Webb said he’s “confident” his film sidesteps that pitfall. “It’s about writing,” he told IndieWire at South by Southwest. “We’re aware of those movies and the complaints people had. The main villain is Electro. Every other villain emerges around that. We were careful to make sure the stories entertained. You had to make sure to create obstacles that were difficult to overcome. We wanted to make the physical and emotional obstacles difficult. Rhino is in it for four minutes so it’s a legitimate comparison, but when you see the movie, I’m confident. »

Box Office Spartans slayed the competition at the box office this weekend, with 300: Rise of an Empire taking in an estimated $45.1 million. Though the sequel, with Noam Murro at the helm in place of Zack Snyder, failed to match 300's opening numbers domestically, it outpaced the original overseas, raking in $87.8 million from 58 markets. Mr. Peabody & Sherman was yet another disappointment for DreamWorks Animation, opening in second with $32.5 million. The movie suffered from family-friendly competition like The Lego Movie, which placed #4 with an additional $10.8 million, and Frozen, which held at #8 with an additional $3 million. Last week's top movie, the Liam Neeson actioner Non-Stop, dropped to #3 with $15.8 million.

• Full coverage: The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A major spoiler regarding the death of a leading character in forthcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 appears to have been let slip via a cereal advert.
The spoiler, which readers can avoid by turning away now, was revealed in a commercial spot for Kellogg's' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Web-Slinging Game. It is one of three videos released into the internet over the weekend, all of which are narrated by Marvel comics icon Stan Lee.
The offending video clearly states that Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn, a character who in the comics and previous big screen versions has doubled as villain The Green Goblin, has died as the film's events unfold. His son Harry Osborn, played by Dane DeHaan, is seen inheriting Oscorp Industries, the multimillion-dollar corporation founded by Norman. »
