Today brings The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the big screen, and though the film has been trashed by much of the geek community, it's on track to open to huge numbers.

We’ve been pretty lukewarm about Sony’s plan for an expanded Spider-Man film universe that includes a Sinister Six villain team-up film, mostly because The Amazing Spider-Man was as mediocre as could be, and Sony’s desperate, flopsweat-drenched marketing campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn’t inspire much hope, either.  Plus, it’s a...

Those Spider-Man fans out there who haven’t exactly enjoyed director Marc Webb’s interpretation of the web-slinger’s rebooted film franchise (let’s face it, The Amazing Spider-Man was mediocre at best, and Sony’s desperately flopsweat-covered marketing campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is giving us the feeling that it’s not much better) have a...

Yet another full-length trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has dropped, and like the previous ads to hit the internet, multiplexes, Super Bowl, etc., it’s a heady mix of comedy, action, ominous drama, and the ever-increasing dread that the best film this character is ever going to get was made a decade ago.  Between the floating blue sparkly villain Electro, the emo-Goblin, and...

One of the biggest questions concerning the news of the upcoming Sinister Six and Venom films is this—how, exactly, is Sony pulling this off?  How you do make an all-villain comic book move in which (rumor has is) the main super-hero, Spider-Man, doesn’t even show up?  Roberto Orci, who is currently charged with co-penning Venom and The...

When it’s all said and done, it will be interesting to review the final box office numbers of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as the film’s marketing strategy has been to basically shout from rooftops, “Hey, Jamie Foxx is totally blue in this thing, flies, and shoots electricity from his hands! (oh and look, it’s Green Goblin and a Rhino mech-suit...

Since most of the recent chatter concerning the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has revolved around the film’s rogues gallery, as well as the more than likely Sinister Six film that will follow The Amazing Spider-Man 3, it’s been easy to forget the role of Gwen Stacy in these films.  Which is a shame, as Emma Stone’s performance as Stacy in the first...

Now that the rebooted Spider-Man franchise has gotten its terribly mediocre and unnecessary origin film out of the way, one hopes that the series will finally be able to be, you know, good.  So it was with some fairly high anticipation that we awaited the first trailer for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, despite the concern that it was overloaded with villains (remember...
