No director is perfect. Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Burton, and Martin Scorsese have had their bad days. But when I look at The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I am befuddled by the idea that Marc Webb is the man who directed one of my favorite movies of all time, (500) Days of Summer. Plugging in too many wacky, unconvincing villains while juggling many big ideas with little-to-no payoff, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 can sadly be put on the same playing level as Joel Schumacher’s Batman films.

Sony Pictures is proud to release the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Directed by Marc Webb, we revisit the wall-crawler played by Andrew Garfield, who must juggle his life between Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and being Spider-Man. Watch the full trailer after the break and see what you can come to expect when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in theaters on May 2. Continue reading
Everyone’s favorite web-slinger is back for his next adventure as Sony Pictures debuts the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This past Comic-Con, fans got their first look at Electro, the big bad Spidey has to face while searching for the truth behind the death of his parents. Those looking for a tastier look into TASM2 will get more than they bargained for as Sony and Marc Webb hold nothing back. See for yourself after the jump. Continue reading
Three influential directors walk into a room… and thus began one of the most under-the-radar panels of Comic-Con 2013. Needless to say, Edgar Wright and Alfonso Cuarón are a pair of the most talented, visually-inspiring directors of our time – Marc Webb is still young in his career, but a visionary nonetheless. In the span of just under an hour, SDCC attendees were treated to a conversation between three directors and what their take is on the future of the film industry. Learn what the trio had to say about action sequences, 3D filmmaking, their own futures, and more after the jump. Continue reading
A brand spanking new teaser poster for The Amazing Spider-Man popped up very recently and the theme of next year’s superhero movies seem to be black and white. First The Dark Knight Rises earns a brooding dark teaser poster and now this one from Sony for Amazing Spider-Man. I gotta say it works though. You can’t deny it. This is a very well made poster with a great tagline that peaks my interest. Continue reading
A few weeks ago, right before Comic-Con, the first teaser trailer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-man hit the Internets. Some have said it to be a lot darker than Sam Raimi’s trilogy, which makes it easily stand on its own, while others question what Sony Pictures may have in store for this property.
There is no official plot synopsis yet, not even from the official website, but from what most have gathered Spider-man, played by Andrew Garfield (The Social Network; Never Let Me Go) will be facing off against Doc Connors aka “The Lizard,” played by Rhys Ifans (Pirate Radio; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1; Notting Hill) in a complete reboot and origin story with no Mary Jane in tow. Replacing Mary Jane Watson as the love interest will be Gwen Stacy, played by the natural blonde Emma Stone (Easy A; Superbad; The Help).
Catch the teaser trailer after the jump along with a few other production stills!
Thankfully there will be no Rebecca Black this Friday (she’s still cool to make fun of these days right?) Anyways… this Friday schedule is a bit more exciting than Thursday will be. I think one of the biggest panels this day will be for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-man. It’s been almost 5 years since we’ve last seen the infamous web-slinger and with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone at the panel it should be a good show. A lot of other smaller films will be in the line-up too, including 30 Minutes or Less, Underworld 4, Fright Night, and Ghost Rider 2. For the entire Friday schedule at the San Diego Comic-Con be sure to view it after the jump!
We are getting our first official studio look at Andrew Garfield in full Spider-Man attire, minus the mask and from the looks of it the end result of a battle. Check out the full picture after the break!
Emma Stone debuted her blond hair, her natural hair color, at the Trevor Live Project Hollywood Palladium on Sunday in Hollywood. I don’t think I could have ever pictured, or known Stone to be a natural blond if she didn’t say so herself. Obviously this is dyed and not natural, but still this is a complete 180° to the red head we’re use to. She will be playing Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man reboot directed by (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb. They just began shooting this week too. Pretty exciting. Check out Emma Stone with her blond hair after the jump!
Slowly, but surely, the new Spider-man movie, directed by Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer), is coming along, and with the casting of leading man Andrew Garfield to don the blue and red tights, the search for the love interest(s) still rolls on. EW.com has gotten word that Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) has been rumored as a casting choice to play the part of Gwen Stacy, who was recently played by Bryce Dallas Howard in Spider-man 3. Along with Wasikowska, Emma Stone has been brought to the attention of a possible casting for Mary Jane Watson, who was of course played by Kirsten Dunst within the original Spider-man trilogy.
