The first trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been out for a few hours now which, in Internet time, means it’s old news. (If you haven’t seen it, click here.) By now, fans have tried to dissect the secrets it holds, and there are plenty. We clearly see Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) as the Green Goblin. We clearly see Peter has to deal with the actions of his deceased father (Campbell Scott). We see Peter fighting Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and we see why they cut out Mary Jane. There’s a lot of story here. So much, in fact, the trailer makes it look like Green Goblin and Rhino are the primary villains and Electro (Jamie Foxx) is second tier. Which is simply not the case.
Despite all that, the biggest surprise in the trailer comes at the 1:16 mark. It’s a quick shot that, one site reports, is the post-credits tease of the Sinister Six. Did you catch it? Check it out below. Read More »

Having seen and really enjoyed Thor: The Dark World, I can safely say I don’t remember one single 3D element. And I saw it in 3D. The glasses didn’t hurt or enhance the experience, and maybe Marvel knows that. So to get fans to pony up the extra few bucks for the 3D screenings of the film, out November 8, they’re attaching a five minute preview of next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier to 3D screenings only.
