    New rumor: This is why they dropped Shailene Woodley! ;)

    (No. Seriously. Please don't let that rumor start. I hate rumors.)

    I love that look for Electro. It's actually pretty similar to the Ultimate version.

    Maybe that's what Marc meant by divering from canon

    More from the EW issue



    Easily the best live action costume of Spidey yet.

    I'm a bit conflicted on this issue. On one hand the decision turned out perfectly. On the other i'm dissapointed that fans had the final word.
    The Spider-man movies in the past have reeked of studio and fan interference since the first movie

    It's a very small percent where the fans actually are right.


    -Avi pressured Raimi into putting venom in because fans loved him

    We got a jammed Spider-man 3

    -Fans wanted more action in a new Superman movie

    We got a movie where it was up to its neck in action that people just got desensitized to it.


    "Oh. Superman crashes through another skyscraper. When's this movie over?"

    So what's the problem with acknowledging that the fans actually were right in this case?

    I'm more a fan of the Raimi films, but I like this Spidey suit better, because it takes the classic look and puts in the one thing that the ASM suit got right...it makes him look skinny. The Raimi suit always looked too artfully sculpted to me.

    Did Felicity Jones Just Spill an 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Spoiler?

    Felicity Jones may want to just stop talking for a while. At least, that is probably how Marvel would prefer it.

    Jones previously appeared to have tipped off the fact that she is playing the Black Cat in the upcoming "Amazing Spider-Man 2." Now, in an interview with View London, Jones may have tipped off some other characters.

    "It's all quite shrouded in secrecy, but I'm the Goblin's girlfriend -- I'm in a relationship with him, and his accomplice. I'm on the dark side," Jones said.

    Either the actress is crazy or this movie's plot just got much much more sillier!:lol:

    He looks a bit like a Borg.

    Not really...I'm sure I read something where Harry is going to be the Goblin, in which case she would be Harry's girlfriend.

    I expect this to be worse than the first film honestly.
    Still, this clip didn't make me feel better or worse.
    Seemed very standard really. It's a static shot essentially.

    At the Spider-Man 2 panel at Comic-Con, they actually had Spider-Man himself as one of the guests :lol::

    It was really Andrew Garfield under the mask, of course, though he appears to stay in character the whole time.

    Andrew seems a really cool guy. I think he loves the idea of being Spider-man a lot more than Toby ever did.

    That was a cool clip, thanks for posting. And yeah, it doesn't seem like he's lying when he says he's been a big fan of the character since he was a kid.

    Just read the panel synopsis on AICN, and I gotta say the movie sounds a lot more fun and action packed than the last one. I get the impression they didn't just want the Spidey costume to look more like the Raimi films, but the story and tone as well.

    ^That's not encouraging. I liked it that the new film took a new approach and style.

    The ASM films are to the Raimi films what the Stones were to the Beatles...they're pretending to do something different while doing pretty much the same thing.

    I didn't really get that impression from the stuff I read. It sounds like they might be going bigger, but it didn't really sound any more like the Raimi movies than the first one was.
