It always happens this way. Productions can work as hard as they like to protect character designs, but when those characters are going to be licensed out to toy makers and the like, the designs always get out to the public via toy fairs and conventions.
So now we’ve got shots of Hasbro toys that tie in to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Transformers: Age of Extinction. They show characters we knew would be in those films (such as Optimus Prime) and a couple we weren’t sure about — we’ll keep those names hidden after the break for those who’d rather not know just yet. Those characters, which relate to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, may not actually appear in the film, but their inclusion here points to the direction that the filmmakers are going overall. Read More »

Although Electro (Jamie Foxx) plays a major role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for obvious reasons, we still don’t know nearly as much about him as we do Spidey. So we’re intrigued by a new snapshot from the editing bay, which just so happens to reveal a new bit of Electro concept art.
Meanwhile, we know even less about Rhino (Paul Giamatti), but maybe that’s okay. The actor confirms that he’s set for at least one more movie, so we’ll presumably have plenty of time to get acquainted. See the picture and check out Giamatti’s quotes after the jump.

With a couple villains appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and plans set to Sony for third and fourth films in Marc Webb‘s take on the character, there has been a lot of speculation about whether or not we’ll see some emulation of The Avengers in one of the latter movies. Specifically, will there be a team?
Clearly there aren’t extra heroes to form a team around Spidey, but what about a bunch of bad guys? Jamie Foxx, who plays Electro in the first sequel, has confirmed that Sony is at least talking about the idea. Read More »
Okay, now they’re just screwing with us. For months, director Marc Webb has been teasing fans about what’s going to happen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 via his Twitter feed. Then he brought some very cool footage to Comic-Con and hinted at other heroes joining Spider-Man and maybe even the formation of the Sinister Six, a super-team of Spider-Man’s greatest foes.
The first of three Spider-sequels doesn’t hit theaters until May 2014 but a few new photos have surfaced online. Most are things we’ve seen before but one of feels like Sony is trolling some fans. You’ll see what we mean below. Read More »

Unlike the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or even the Justice League, Spider-Man’s more or less a solo act. Yes, he’s been part of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four in comic books, but in the movies he’s now a lone Marvel Comics hero over at Sony.
But as the Amazing Spider-Man franchise builds to the (rumored) introduction of the Sinister Six, Spidey could be in need of a little help. And he just might get it, judging by producer Avi Arad‘s reaction when asked whether another Marvel superhero might appear in the next film. Hit the jump to see what he said.
