Spider-Man 3 is not as bad as you remember it. Somehow, in the seven years since its release, Spidey 3 has become the Batman & Robin of modern comic movies. I saw Batman & Robin in the theatre. I left in a homicidal rage. I also saw Spider-Man 3 in the theatre and it’s not responsible for any cold cases. Continue reading My Favorite Scene: Spider-Man 3 – “The Birth of Sandman”
Marc Webb has announced that while he will return for Amazing Spider-Man 3, it will be his last film in the franchise. Amazing Spider-Man 4, a Sinister Six film and a Venom film are all planned for the Sony Spidey-verse. Webb, whose name really does require that he does nothing but these films forever, says he’s ready to move on to other things.
This isn’t the end of the world. Webb has gotten this new franchise off to an epic start and Sony has two years to find the right person to take over. This is actually another sign that Sony has a long-term plan and people bought into it. Webb certainly could’ve bailed for AMS 3, but he gave the equivalence of 2 years notice. This is the kind of advance planning that’s allowed the MCU to succeed.

I think any doubt that Harry Osborn is going full Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been dispelled by this latest released photo. I think the Osborns are going to be the real villains of this film and the stuff with Electro and Rhino has been a smokescreen. Not that they’re not in it or a big part, but I think this is more an Oscorp movie than it is “Electro’s movie”. I don’t know how I feel about the Goblin look. I also think this may be very nascent Goblin and we’ll get a different, more classic look in AMS 3. This doesn’t leave much doubt though. Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.
I was just going to post the other half of the Amazing Spidey 2 trailer from the game, but this morning Sony has released those combined trailers with new footage for a trailer entitled “Enemies Unite”. Essentially telling the origin of Electro from the film, then moving on to the gestating Sinister Six. I’ve gone from total skeptic to radically on-board over the last year and now I just need to see this thing. This is a fantastic trailer and never did I think they could make Electro cool. I live in a world where Whiplash and Electro were played by Oscar-winners…..whaaaaaaaaat? Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2, 2014.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is so epic that its Super Bowl trailer is being leaked in two parts: one today and one tomorrow. I keep getting more hyped for all four Marvel movies this year and I think the tipping point toward being nutsy about this film came in the trailer when for a brief second you see in Oscorp the Vulture’s wings and Dr. Octopus’ arms in storage. The Amazing Spider-Man opens May 2, 2014. You know you’ll be there.
