Sony must be happy with how The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is turning out because they’re bringing back the credited writing team for the third film. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner will write The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which already has a release date of June 10, 2016. Andrew Garfield will return for sure, and the studio apparently wants director Marc Webb to come back too. There’s no word on the villains, but with so many appearing in next summer’s sequel, odds are we’ll see one or two of them back. (Paul Giamatti as Rhino? Dane DeHaan or Chris Cooper as Green Goblin?) There’s also been talk these Spider-Man films are leading to the formation of the Sinister Six. Read More »

Comic-Con 2013 proved one thing beyond a shadow a doubt. To make an impression in Hall H, you have to do something unexpected. Sony did just that with their presentation of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, bringing Spider-Man himself to the stage before introducing the actor portraying him, Andrew Garfield.
You can read about the footage here, and rest of the panel here, but below check out a video of the whole panel which includes 10 minutes of Garfield, as Spider-Man, just being hilarious. Read More »
When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014, it will be the fifth straight Spider-Man movie set in New York. Knowing that, a fan at San Diego Comic-Con asked star Andrew Garfield what other famous Spider-Man comic book stories he’d like to see on screen. Garfield said, “I’d like to see him with The Avengers…but I’m not supposed to say that.” The crowd went wild.
It was just one of the many awesome things discussed during the panel. Director Marc Webb explained how the first film was meant to set up multiple movies and that Rhino (Paul Giamatti) is mostly in this one to establish a fun tone. Dane DeHaan talked about Harry Osborn’s complicated relationships with Peter Parker and Norman Osborn while Jamie Foxx spoke about Electro’s costume and origin. Oh – and they screened about 3 minutes of never before seen footage. Read about the footage here, and hit the jump for everything else. Read More »

The video was a rough one, with incomplete effects and a couple of storyboards, but it was enough to offer us a good sense of the movie. And what we saw was pretty fantastic. Hit the jump for the full description.

Yesterday we saw the first official shot of Jamie Foxx in the fully villainous incarnation of Electro in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That came courtesy of the cover of the new issue of EW, and now more images from the mag have hit the internet. One in particular gives us another look at Foxx’s bad guy, while some others focus on Spidey himself.
We’ll likely get a better official look at the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti, at Comic Con next week. For now, check out the new pics below, and wonder if the Rhino and Electro are united in evil by their hands-free headsets. Read More »

For a geeky dude, Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker does pretty well with the ladies. He got himself into a relationship with the amazing Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, and over the next couple of installments he’ll also cross paths with Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy. But Garfield thinks it’s high time Peter broadened his dating horizons.
In a recent interview, he floated the idea of a male MJ — which would, of course, mean a gay or bisexual Spider-Man. And he thinks Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan would be just the guy to sweep Spidey off his feet. Read Garfield’s comments after the jump.
