Jamie Foxx‘s turn as Electro is undoubtedly at the center of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

A new post on The Daily Bugle viral site might now shine some light on Electro’s origins. It hints at some kind of new “hydroelectric power plant” being built in New York by Oscorp. Also, the latest rumor of a subtitle for the film is The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro. Read More »

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.

Hans Zimmer has inherited The Amazing Spider-Man 2 scoring duties from James Horner, and he’s going about the job in an unusual way. Zimmer isn’t just writing a score himself; he’s formed a supergroup of sorts to great the score.
Sony announced today that Zimmer and director Marc Webb are working with Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Michael Einzinger (Incubus), and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) on music for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Read More »

Those of you who make the trip to Middle-Earth in December will be treated to a peek at another exotic fantasy locale: New York City. Specifically, Spider-Man’s New York City, which unlike our New York City is filled with teen superheroes, giant lizard-men, electrified electricians, and HAL 9000-esque AI officers.
