As revelers crowded into New York City’s Times Square last night to ring in the New Year, Electro (Jamie Foxx) was dropping by the iconic intersection for a different, far more nefarious reason.
In a new clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that debuted at last night’s festivities, the supervillain makes a pit stop in midtown Manhattan to soak up some of its electricity and to release some of his fury. Luckily, our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) is on hand to try and stop him. Check out the clip after the jump.

The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was all about the expanding universe Marc Webb was creating with the sequel. Three villans and counting are going to be a problem for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield). Plus, if that wasn’t enough, he’s still got to deal with the regular people in his life, too.
A German trailer for the film just came online and has a lot more footage, mostly related to Peter’s relationships with Aunt May (Sally Field) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Check it out below. Read More »

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchise currently rests on the strong shoulders of its star, 30-year-old Andrew Garfield. But that may not be the case by the time by the time 2018 rolls around.
Although Garfield is contracted to appear up through The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which hits in 2016, he says he’s not signed for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which is due out two years later. Does this mean another new Peter Parker could be coming up on the horizon? Hit the jump to read Garfield’s comments.

The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit this morning, and whatever you think it suggests about the movie being advertised, there’s certainly a lot of stuff to talk about in those couple minutes. And so director Marc Webb and his primary cast, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx, have obliged, by commenting on key elements of the trailer. Below, you can watch a video that pauses the trailer often so that the creators can talk about what’s going on. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming on December 5, but here are three brief bits of footage to show off the film’s web-swinging hero. Along with the teasing looks at Spidey in action, these clips feature (in Spanish) the Rise of Electro subtitle that has started to appear on international marketing for the movie. (The US version of one of these spots, as seen on Facebook, doesn’t have the subtitle.)
There’s no hint here of the trio of villains that are teased on one recent set of posters for the movie, but expect to see them in the full trailer that drops later this week.

Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man had it’s share of problems — some pretty big ones, in fact — but one thing it did very well was Spidey’s costume design. Sure, there’s the whole question of a teenager being able to make that suit, but setting aside that old qualm the suit in the film, and the updated version for next year’s sequel, was pretty much spot-on. It was classic in origin, but modern in design and functionality, and the costume was built so well that star Andrew Garfield can wear it on stage in crappy lighting and still look great.
Naturally, the costume was not an instant design triumph. In fact, there were many versions conceptualized. Now you can see three others, any of which would have contributed to a film with a very different feel. Read More »
Amy Pascal, the co-chairman of Sony Pictures, has been discussing some well-publicized financial issues at the studio, and one quote in particular has a lot of people talking:
We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.
Is she talking about the all-but-confirmed rumor the Sinister Six will eventually appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4? Will Spider-Man need to recruit another hero to help him win that battle? Or is Pascal talking about spin-offs set in the Spider-Man universe, such as the long rumored Venom film? We discuss below.
UPDATE: Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Michael Lynton added more fuel to the fire with this gem of a quote:
We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works.

As we wait on the first trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which will be attached to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), a few new photos have surfaced to whet your spidey-appetite. Two are fairly innocuous, but the third reveals a scene we definitely have not seen yet. It’s not a super spoiler; it seems like something that could be in that trailer. But better to be safe than sorry.
Check out the photos below. Read More »
