Sony projects a worldwide gross of $1 billion for The Amazing Spider-man 2

You may have thought that Sony had high expectations for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 based on the multiple already announced sequels and spin-offs they have planned, but just wait until you hear this. Sony Pictures' Amy Pascal made the ambitious statement that the studio is not just anticipating that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is going to be huge, but they are expecting it to be almost as big...

UPDATE: The X-MEN scene is now explained! According to Variety , Sony is featuring the X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST scene due to contractual obligations between the studio's indie banner, Fox Searchlight, and director Marc Webb .

Spidey goes "bullet time" in this clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

A new clip from Marc Webb 's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has swung in, featuring a little Times Square action. Spider-Man ( Andrew Garfield ) squares off with the newly-powered Electro ( Jamie Foxx ) who sends both electricity and a police car at our favorite web-head and innocent bystanders, prompting a slo-mo "bullet time" reaction. We've kind of grown accustomed to...

Producers say "nothing is sacred" when it comes to the Sinister Six line-up

Ever since the announcement that Sony is developing both a VENOM and SINISTER SIX movie, we have been trying to determine who will comprise the line-up of the villainous collective. The comic iterations of the Sinister Six have traditionally contained villains we have yet to see on the big screen while THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has teased well more than a half-dozen potential candidates....

Is Venom destined to battle Carnage in the upcoming spinoff?

One character I’m dying to see on film is Carnage. He’s been teased time and time again, and this time isn’t any different. With a new Venom spinoff, you’d think that the chances might be high for Carnage to get his day even if it’s in a second installment, if that happens. I wish I could tell you it was a sure thing, but for now we just get another “maybe.” When IGN spoke with...

Venom or Sinister Six coming in 2018, not The Amazing Spider-man 4

Sony announced THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 would be followed by two sequels in 2016 and 2018 but now seems to be changing that tune in light of the spin-off films they have announced more recently. Specifically, both THE SINISTER SIX and VENOM are getting their own films with Drew Goddard already signed to write and direct the villain team-up picture. It now looks like this change may, in...

Drew Goddard in negotiations to direct Sinister Six for Sony

That Drew Goddard is so hot right now. The writer-director has slowly built a great resume leading up to what might be a huge payoff—a crack at a huge villain piece for Sony. Goddard is currently in negotiations to helm the SINISTER SIX spin-off. This would be a nice set up for Goddard whose only previous effort was 2012s CABIN IN THE WOODS. Goddard did pen the script for...

Extended TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings in new footage

Yep, summer movie season is about to kick into high gear. May is traditionally the start (although April is starting to become a hell of an appetizer) and this year it's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 that ushers in the 2014 season. Starring Andrew Garfield , Emma Stone , Jamie Foxx , Dane DeHaan , Sally Field , Paul Giamatti , and Chris Cooper , the Marc Webb directed sequel...

New clip and featurette from The Amazing Spider-man 2 focus on Electro

With all of the focus on the secondary villains and spin-offs announced, it is easy to forget that Jamie Foxx is the real nemesis in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Hell, internationally the movie is even subtitled RISE OF ELECTRO. But, we have been more concerned about the rise of the Sinister Six and what the Green Goblin looks like to pay much attention to the Mr. Freeze look-a-like....

Here's a bunch of new images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Is it May yet? Well, geez, you’d think it was with all this stuff from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 that’s been hitting the net. I love Spidey as much as the next person, but I think they may have gone overboard on the marketing here. Perhaps they just want to show off, and are super proud of the sequel. Either way, if I didn’t see another piece of material from this flick until it came...

Andrew Garfield says "screw the critics" regarding The Amazing Spider-man 2

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has had critics ever since the announcement was made that a director other than Sam Raimi would be helming an adventure featuring the friendly neighborhood webslinger. Marc Webb , Andrew Garfield , and Emma Stone set out to create a more gritty and DARK KNIGHT-esque superhero film while also creating a darker and more conspiracy-centric origin for Peter...
