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. Sony, infinite in their wisdom, are already plotting two spin-offs and at least two more sequels, but though star Andrew Garfield has said that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be his...

There is an argument to be made that critics often give the first films of summer a pass. It's partly because they're ginormous studio productions, and it used to be that coverage and/or advertising could be hurt by panning their latest blockbuster. But also there's often a sense of a soft pass, films that aren't particularly great (at least in the critic's eyes) but also not worth going hard...

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Sarah Gadon Is Not Mary Jane Watson

Last week, we reported to you that Shailene Woodley, who had filmed a few brief scenes as Mary Jane Watson for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, had been cut from the film, with Mary Jane slated to now appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.  With that news came reports that Woodley would be axed altogether, and that Sony would be hiring an altogether new actress to take on...

Earlier this week, we reported to you that there had been a shake-up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast—while the villain roster continues to balloon from Electro to Rhino to a pre-Green Goblin to a rumored Vulture and Black Cat, it was reported that the film would be dropping the character of Mary Jane Watson, as played by Shailene Woodley, from the film, and would save her for...

Well, despite some amazingly silly production images that have leaked from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the fact that The Amazing Spider-Man itself was a massive chunk of meh, it’s with a small amount of surprise that we receive the big news: Sony has given the green light to both The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man...

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Vulture To Be Played By Colm Feore?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is already packed tight with three villains (something that didn’t exactly play well when Spider-Man 3 tried it out): Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as the Rhino, and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin.  So it’s with a grain of salt that we take the newest Amazing Spider-Man...

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': First Official Image Of The Rhino

Ever since it was announced that Mark Webb had selected Paul Giamatti to portray goofy Spider-Man villain The Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we’ve had our doubts.  Giamatti is an excellent actor, but… the Rhino?  Especially after the underwhelming version of the Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man, the Rhino just seemed like a misstep.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': First Look At Rhino?

Seeing as how The Amazing Spider-Man reboot of the Spider-Man cinematic franchise seems to be going out of its way to avoid using the same Big Bads that were featured in the Sam Raimi continuity (save for endless hints of an eventual Norman Osborn appearance), and director Marc Webb seems dead-set on using only the most ridiculous Spider-Man villains...

Thanksgiving is a special time of year were we bond with loved ones, share what we're grateful for and take part in publicly acceptable gluttony for one day.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' To Begin Production In February 2013

The Amazing Spider-Man
While The Amazing Spider-Man was a serviceable reboot of a franchise that really didn’t need a reboot (despite Spider-Man 3, well, you know, being horrible), it wasn’t exactly a film that earned a top spot in the canon of superhero films.  That said, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone both aced their roles with humor and loads of chemistry, so much so that a...

While the latest in Avengers 2 news typically keeps fans frothing at the notion of what Joss Whedon will attempt to pull off next, it’s easy to forget that not only did The Amazing Spider-Man do solid business this summer, it has a sequel planned for 2014, as well.  And two significant news bits leaked about the film today—one concerning the character of Mary Jane...

Metal Gear Solid—as far as video game franchises go, the series is about as immersive, intelligent, cinematic, and strange as it gets.  The story of a Rambo-esque military officer of the 1960 named Naked Snake, and the present-day efforts of his son/clone Solid Snake, to rid the world of walking, robotic nuclear launch platforms, the Metal Gear...

If the films of summer 2012 have been marked by anything, it’s this—a massive oversaturation of marketing.  Teasers, trailers, teasers for the trailers, whole scenes, viral ads, photo collections, secret websites, behind the scenes clips, and multiple posters are now almost expected to be released in the weeks leading up to the release of any would-be blockbuster, as insecure studios feel...
