The release of a picture showing Peter Parker's new duds yesterday makes a lot of sense now, as today we've seen the first pics taken while filming of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes place in New York.
After last weeks tease of one of Spider-Man's new lenses, Marc Webb has continued his daily tweeting by giving us a link to SuperHeroHype's exclusive first look at Andrew Garfield's new costume!
If a recent tweet from Marc Webb is anything to go by, it sounds like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in production - and is being filmed in a celluloid rather than digital format. Webb's tweet read: "Day 1. #anamorphic #film #philthecameraoperator" accompanied by a photo of a decidedly old-skool camera.
The latest rumours hint at the cinematic return of Venom in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has officially begun production, Sony Pictures cement the moment with a press release that confirms the casting of Paul Giamatti (though not name-checking Rhino, you can be certain that is the role) and reveals the casting of Colm Feore.
Sideways star Paul Giamatti is currently in talks to play The Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Apparently crashing buses falls into the purview of what a "spider can" do.
Jamie Foxx is currently promoting Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and of all the probing, interesting questions to ask about such a challenging role in such a controversial film by such a singularly gifted director, MTV decided to ask him about a superhero movie. Go figure.
So that was 2012 was it? Despite the apocalypse, there have also been some great (and some rather lacklustre) comic book movies released this year which have had fans cheering or heckling, and diehards yelling "That's not canon!" like the sad types that we are. As we are still prior to the impending end of the world (to be ushered in by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse doing the "Gangnam Style" dance), I thought I'd take a look at the releases of the year and get some flame wars going once I slag off your favourite.
Whatever you thought of The Amazing Spider-Man (personally, I thought it wasn't the Spider-Man I grew up with, but it was a valid reinvention and a sturdy foundation for a new franchise), I am sure we can all agree that Martin Sheen's Uncle Ben was one of the absolute highlights. In fact, I would say it is the one area that Marc Webb's reboot betters Sam Raimi's original trilogy.
Good news! Sheen has confirmed that he will be returning to play Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
