Though I am still trying to cleanse my mental palate of having one of the greatest comic scenes in comic history reduced to a throwaway and while Paul Giamatti’s MOOSE AND SQUIRREL-esque Russian accent still wakes me late at night screaming, I can see by box office numbers that some of you do not share my passionate hatred for Amazing Spider-Man 2. For you, because I am a tolerant and compassionate man (though I do sort of want to punch Marc Webb), here are the details of what you’ll find on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu Ray, due to hit stores on August 19th…..I have to go punch my rage pillow now…..

It’s hard to believe, given the run of quality that’s spoiled comic book fans over the last decade, that someone could make a film that so completely misses the target audience. I honestly thought films of the quality of Elektra and Batman & Robin were behind us. I was wrong. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not just a misstep; it’s a mind-boggling disaster of a film.

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.
