TAG | The Amazing Spider-Man
In a blockbuster landscape dominated by superheroes, Sony Pictures has one of the most famous with Spider-Man. His latest adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, doesn't swing around until May, but the studio is already looking two sequels ahead. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is slated for June 10, 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 is set for May 4, 2018. But by the time the fourth installment rolls around, there could be a new actor wearing the web-shooters. In a recent interview, star Andrew Garfield mused on the possibility about hanging up the costume after the third film. Hit the jump for more. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014. In an interview with Yahoo! Movies UK, Garfield says: "I mean I’m under contract for another one after this… as far as a fourth one? That's not anything to do with me. But yeah, I think what we’re doing here is we've established the world. And now we get to really play inside that world." Damn you, Garfield! Don't you know we won't be satisfied with the near-future? We have plans to make for 2018, and you need to RSVP now. Garfield was a fine Spider-Man in the first movie, but even he admits that they now have the opportunity to go much further: "I think there was something missing in the first one because our focus wasn't on character as much we were trying to keep a number of plates spinning in the air – How can we reintroduce the character? How ...
The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out later this week, and, at least internationally, there are some obnoxious trailer teasers leading up to it. These trailer teasers, at best, show off the new costume in action, but mostly it's just Spidey zipping around New York City. However, if you weren't at Comic-Con, this is the first footage you'll see of the character. What's more interesting is the subtitle tacked on to the trailer: "Rise of Electro". Sometimes foreign territories get different titles, so we don't know if The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro will be used stateside. Hit the jump to watch the brief teasers, and come back on December 5th to see the full trailer. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014. Via CBM. Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will arrive online next week, but the first poster has been spotted in the wild. We know for a fact that Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) will be fighting Electro (Jamie Foxx), but the rest of the plot has been speculation based on other characters in the movie. For those who don’t know, Paul Giamatti is playing the baddie, Rhino, Chris Cooper is playing Norman Osborn (who becomes Green Goblin in the comics) and Dane DeHaan is playing Harry Osborn (who becomes Green Goblin after his father dies). This new poster apparently shows not only Electro, but also Green Goblin on his glider and a giant, robot/vehicle that has a horn like a rhino. If the first poster is going to show off these characters, I wonder how much they’ll feature in the first trailer. Hit the jump to check out the posters. Hopefully, some higher-quality images will go online soon. The film also stars Emma Stone, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally Field.

The future of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise probably lies with the Sinister Six. As we've said before, Sony doesn't have any other superheroes, but they have plenty of supervillains, and teaming them together can set Amazing Spider-Man apart from other comic book movies. As far as we know, Electro (Jamie Foxx) will be the main villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but we also know Chris Cooper is playing Norman Osborn, who in the comics eventually becomes Spidey's arch-nemesis, Green Goblin. In a recent interview with MTV, Cooper says The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be our introduction to the rebooted Osborn, but, "you'll see — an extremely odd introduction, which apparently will lead to something more." Hit the jump for Cooper's other statement regarding the upcoming sequel. The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014. Cooper also told MTV, "They sent me some material," he said, adding, "But they said also that this Spider-Man is its own Spider-Man. We're just kind of starting from the beginning." That's right, kids: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a reboot of a reboot. Perhaps a more accurate description is that the sequel is a much-needed adjustment. The first movie was too gritty but also too silly (lizard gas) and mostly a mess when it came to the story. A redesigned costume and the humor we saw in the Comic-Con trailer are encouraging signs for the upcoming film. As for Cooper's comments, ...
Superheroes now dominate the multiplex, but Sony Pictures only has one major character: Spider-Man. Thankfully, he's one of the biggest, and he's got a colorful gallery of supporting characters. While The Amazing Spider-Man franchise could be building to the wallcrawler facing off against the supervillain group Sinister Six, the new Spidey movies are only coming out once every two years. Other studios with more characters are trying to force out one every year, or in Marvel's case, two per year. In order to stay competitive, Sony might start digging into Spider-Man's supporting cast. Hit the jump for more. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014 The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opens June 10, 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 opens May 4, 2018. According to The Wrap, Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal told investors "We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains," earlier today. The name that should be ringing in your head right now is Venom. He's popular among fanboys, and he's got Spider-Man's powers and then some. In the comics, the alien symbiote suit can be summoned at any time, makes host Eddie Brock bigger, stronger, and provides him with an overabundance of slobber. The character was introduced through Spider-Man (Peter Parker had the symbiote first but shunned it, so it found a new host with rival photographer Brock), but there may not be time or space to provide the introduction in The Amazing ...
Well this is a weird one. We've got a trio of images that appear to be from Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, though I personally hope they're all photoshopped. As you can tell from the above image, Spidey apparently joins the brave men and women of the NYFD in the sequel, albeit for a brief time most likely. Jamie Foxx also appears as the villainous Electro and he looks rather pissed off; water and electricity don't mix, after all. Lastly, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield appear troubled, mostly by Garfield's hair. Hit the jump to vet them for yourselves. Check out the new images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 below, via an unexplained international exclusive from the Times of India: Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough.

A couple sequel teases popped up on Twitter today: Jim Carrey tweeted a photo of Lloyd Christmas' crooked, chipped teeth from the set of Dumb and Dumber To. Jeff Daniels co-stars in the Farrelly Brothers' picture. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 uploaded a still of a policeman standing in smoke and fire, the Electro (Jamie Foxx). Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field also star in the May 2, 2014 release directed by Marc Webb. See the photos after the jump. @JimCarrey: GESS HUUZ BAK BICHEZ? @SpiderManMovie: "This is what happens when you try to give Electro a ticket." -@MarcW #AmazingSpiderMan2 #ThroughTheWebb
Shortly before hitting the stage at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive video interview with Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb. He talked about promoting the film while not revealing the big secrets, why Mary Jane Watson was moved to the third film, whether they will recast Shailene Woodley, how they came up with the architecture for three Spider-Man films when they were planning the first one, his uncertainly about the story for The Amazing Spider-Man 4 except that “there’s a lot of ancillary characters that have a lot of cinematic potential that could exist in their own right,” and much more. He went on to talk about Easter Eggs, the editing process, deleted scenes, what will be on the eventual Blu-ray, the challenges faced with getting Spider-Man, The Avengers, and Wolverine in the same movie, and when I asked if he has already signed on to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Webb said: “I’m incredibly excited about the possibility of a third movie. I had a blast making this and working with Andrew and Emma has been one of the great delights of my career, and Sally and Jamie and Dane and Chris. It’s really, really fun and it’d be hard to resist not doing it again.” Hit the jump to watch the interview with a full time index.

As Spider-Man swings into Comic-Con this weekend for a presentation in Hall H, we had a chance to talk to stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan and director Marc Webb about The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster which rebooted the series. The film chronicles the continuing adventures of Peter Parker (Garfield) aka Spider-Man and introduces Electro (Foxx) as a formidable new opponent. During the interview, they talked to the press about what inspired the incarnation of Electro, what it’s like bringing to life an iconic villain, what their experiences on the first film allowed them to bring to the sequel, how the relationship between Peter and Spider-Man has evolved, and why Spider-Man has always been a hero for the underdog regardless of race or sexual orientation. Webb also discussed the challenge of directing a film with this hugeness of scale, what he learned from Alfonso Cuarón about surrendering to the material, and why he’s reluctant to reveal too much about the future direction of the franchise. Check out what they had to say after the jump: Marc, what were the elements of the Spider-Man character and story that you couldn’t get to in the first one that you were really excited to be able to do this time? Marc Webb: Well, there’s a level of virtuosity in his physical capabilities that we really had fun playing around with. There was a foundation of playfulness in this movie. There were hints of it in the first movie, but ...
