Sony Working On Female 'Spider-Man' Film, Adds Carnage To 'Venom
Sony is changing gears, apparently intent on making their Spider-Man films the equivalent of Marvel's Avengers and filling the gaps with secondary character films.

The studio has pushed back The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to 2018 after flooding the market with Spidey films every two years or so. In order to stand up against the giant ensemble super hero flicks from Marvel and FOX, Sony has begun work on Sinister Six, Venom, and now an untitled female centered film.

Deadline reports writer Lisa Joy has been hired to pen a female superhero film based on the properties Sony purchased from Marvel –...

Why A Delay Of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' Would Be Bad News For The Franchise

Why A Delay Of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' Would Be Bad News For
Recently it was reported that the third installment in The Amazing Spider-Man series could be delayed from 2016 to 2017, leading some to believe the films may be recast... or rebooted.

Ain't It Cool News revealed last month they had a source telling them Spidey wouldn't be in theaters again until an undetermined date in 2017.

The second film began ramping up for a collection of films in the franchise, allowing Sony to have a group of interconnected flicks like Marvel's Avengers universe and Warner Bros.' Justice League. The Sinister Six film would follow Spider-Man's greatest villains, an...

Box Office Predictions: ‘X-Men’ To Topple ‘Godzilla’

5/22/2014 5:48pm EDT
 X-Men: Days Of Future Past
The summer blockbuster movie season is upon us and it looks like the box office will be a busy one this Memorial Day Weekend. Let’s make some predictions shall we.

1) X-Men: Days Of Future Past- 105M 3 Day Weekend, 105M Total

The big question this weekend isn’t if X-Men will break 100M, it’s when. The big budget sequel is sure to be the top draw this weekend, and reviews are helping sell it to even the most skeptical viewer. This is the merging of the two X-Men teams, and it will lead to the biggest X-Men opening ever. The question though is whether or not X-Men will need Memorial Day to ...

'Neighbors' Trounces 'Spider-Man 2' At The Box Office

5/12/2014 11:00am EDT
'Neighbors' Trounces 'Spider-Man 2' At The Box Office
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's comedy "Neighbors" easily overtook the competition at the weekend box office, including "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," with $51 million in ticket sales.

The film centers a couple with a new baby who discover their new neighbors are a group of fraternity boys. Both sides engage in sabotage and one-upmanship, launching an all-out war against one another.

Expected to hold on to its box office reign, "Spider-Man 2" came in at number two at the box office, making $37.1 million during its second week of release.

"The Other Woman," starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and ...

Box Office Predictions: Will 'Neighbors' Top 'Spider-Man 2'

5/8/2014 7:23pm EDT
Box Office Predictions: Will 'Neighbors' Top 'Spider-Man 2'
1) The Amazing Spider-Man 2- 40M Weekend, 155M Total

Spidey should drop a little over 50% this weekend. Neighbors is solid competition, but not major competition. Spidey will remain the top draw this weekend.

2) Neighbors- 35M Weekend, 35M Total

Keeping in mind this is an R rated comedy, with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, 35M is a really solid opening. This isn’t the Hangover, this is Neighbors. Even with strong reviews, and solid previews, I’m betting this film tops out around 35M. Rogen had This Is The End last year which only managed 20M, so this would be a huge improvement upon that.


Sally Field Massacres Julia Roberts In 'Curse-Off'

Julia Roberts never stood a chance when she faced off against Sally Field in a competition to see who could come up with the most curses.

The two actresses were guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote their films – Roberts is in The Normal Heart and Field is in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But Kimmel had the idea to also test how foul their mouths were.

Kimmel introduced the game, saying, "We are honored to have both Sally Field and Julia Roberts on the show tonight - and it's also an opportunity to find out which of these incredibly talented women has the foulest mouth. Cover your ears, Amer...

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Tops Box Office, But Can’t Beat 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Tops Box Office, But Can’t Beat 'Captain
Captain America: The Winter Soldier still holds the crown for best opening weekend for a comic book film this year, but it got a good challenge from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Sony Pictures is estimating a $92 million weekend for the web-slinger’s flick, only three million behind Chris Evan’s Marvel movie.

However, it’s hard to complain when you make just below $100 million and beat your closest competition, The Other Woman, by about $80 million. The Other Woman took $14 million at the box office, Heaven is for Real took third place with $8.7 million, Captain America remained in the top 5 ...

5 Reasons Why You Should See 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
This summer movie season will be saturated with superheroes, but there are gems scattered amongst the sea of billowing capes and uber-tight spandex. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is one of them. It's an action-packed, heartfelt, deftly crafted loveletter to the teenaged crusader and another triumph for Marvel Studios still soaring off the success of "Captain America: The Winter Solder" and pretending "Thor 2: The Dark World" never existed.

Here are the top five spoiler-free reasons to swing into your nearest theater and check out "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Movie Review: The Good And The Bad Of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

5/2/2014 9:18pm EDT
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The thing I learned is that there are a lot more Spider-Man comic book fans than I would have thought, and there are still some who are oblivious to comic books. There was an audible gasp when Felicity Jones revealed her character’s name was Felicia. As in Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat. No, they don’t go anywhere with that. Nor do they go anywhere with Alistair Smythe. But people definitely appreciated the Black Cat name drop.

An equal amount of people were audibly shocked at the death in the film. You know the death. If you don’t know the death, I won’t 100% spoil it for you, but it’s a bi...

Review: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Is Not All That Amazing

Review: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Is Not All That Amazing
The Amazing Spider-Man is back and I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I just don't find this super dude all that amazing. I love super hero films: 'Iron Man', 'The Avengers,' 'X-Men,' 'Capt. America,'...big, big fan...'The Spider-Man,' not so much.

Personally, I think he'd be much more appreciated by a tween or teen audience. He's slightly goofy, whiny, mopey, and reminds me of a gawky teenager - which he is. But I don't think that's the only problem with this new 'Spider-Man' film. It just seems old hack: seen it...the car crashes, the monsters, the evil corporation that wants to take...

Graham Norton Pranks Emma Stone With Spice Girls Reunion

PR Photos
Emma Stone has been asked about her Spice Girls fandom quite a bit while she tours around the world promoting her upcoming film Amazing Spider-Man 2 – so talk show host Graham Norton had to pull a Spice Girls-themed prank on her.

"I feel like I've been talking more about the Spice Girls on this press tour than I have about the movie," Stone told Norton during her appearance on the show. Of course, co-stars Jamie Foxx and Andrew Garfield were there as well.

Norton brought up the recent story from Australia, where Stone wept while listening to Mel B.'s message for her. "You understand in th...

Spider-Man And Baby Spider-Man Have A Dance-Off

4/3/2014 2:03pm EDT
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Apparently only one superhero can out-dance Spider-Man, and that's an infant Spider-Man.

In a new advertisement for Evian water, the titular hero from Amazing Spider-Man 2 meets his match when he sees a younger version of himself in a reflection.

Eager to test the skills of his mini-me, Spidey shoots web, does the robot, backflips, and moonwalks along with several other moves to the tune of "Here Comes the Hotstepper."

Unfortunately, duty calls for Spider-Man and he has to go be a superhero – we'll call it a draw for now.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Will Set Up 'Sinister Six' Movie

3/27/2014 6:37am EDT
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
If you thought three villains in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was pushing it, think again.

The film will set up spinoff flick about six of the webslinger's major villains called, fittingly, the Sinister Six. The group has varied over the years in the verious comic book iterations, but mainly consists of Doc Ock, who brings the group together, Electro, Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio and Vulture.

"At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six," Sony Pictures' Amy Pascal revealed in the latest issue of ...

What's even better than getting the chance to make an appearance at the Academy Awards when you're a five-year-old? Going to Disneyland, of course.

That's what five-year-old Miles Scott, aka "Batkid," got to do with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield on Monday.

Miles, a Leukemia survivor who had his wish to dress up as Batman and save his hometown of San Francisco, which stood in for Gotham City, granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Novewmber, was supposed to appear with Garfield during a planned superhero segment during the Oscars. Numerous rumors surfaced about the cut se...

Spidey Battles Electro In Revealing 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer

Electro - The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The latest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out - but does it spoil too much?

In the action-packed peek at the superhero film, titled Rise of Electro, Spider-Man's fame as a good guy appears to be growing in New York. However, that has a downside: more enemies are appearing with the intent on taking him down.

The trailer gives us a first look at The Rhino and Green Goblin in action, so if you want to be surprised at their modern outfits don't watch the trailer. Several other key plots are revealed in the clip as well, which has taken away some of the suspense:

B.J. Novak Revealed As Yet Another Villain In 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

2/4/2014 12:31pm EST
Amazing Spider-Man 2
How many villains is too many? Spider-Man may find out in his upcoming movie, because B.J. Novak has been revealed as the fourth baddie in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Director Marc Webb spilled the beans when he promoted Novak's book "One More Thing" on Twitter. Webb posted, "Almost shot ASM2 in B+W til @bjnovak's (A. Smythe) promo for his excellent book ONE MORE THING beat me to it." Webb was referencing a black-and-white ad for the book.

One tidbit many picked up on, however, was the "A. Smythe" role attached to Novak's name. Who is A. Smythe? It stands for Alistair Smythe, the son of Sp...

2014 Super Bowl Commercials & Movie Trailers: Watch Them All Here!

2/3/2014 12:28am EST
Like most of America, we thought that this year's Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos would have been a much closer game.

Seattle's dominance on both sides of the ball led to a very one-sided 43-8 victory, and unless you're a member of the Seahawks' "12th Man," the game itself was a bit boring at times.

Naturally, we expected some pick-me-ups during this year's commercials, but while Bruno Mars, whose halftime show with the Red Hot Chili Peppers was on par with the the dominance of Seattle (chalk it up as one of the best), the commercials were as lame as the Broncos...

Spoiler: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Super Bowl Teaser Ends With Major Cliffhanger

1/31/2014 10:51am EST
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A new TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released by Sony on Thursday, teasing that something big is about to happen in the new full-length trailer that's set to run during the Super Bowl this Sunday.

The teaser reveals a lot of what was already shown in the first full trailer, released at the beginning of December, but this 30-second preview ends with a huge cliffhanger: our hero catching girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in mid-air and then the two crashing together through the glass roof of a skyscraper.

"See what happens next Super Bowl Sunday," a graphic then reads.

Sony Confirms At Least Two Villain Spinoffs Of 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

12/13/2013 3:47pm EST
Spider-Man 3
Columbia Pictures has announced that at least two new films based on the Spider-Man franchise are in the works.

Two of the "several" planned films feature the web-slinging superhero's enemies Venom and the Sinister Six -- a group of supervillains that includes Electro, the main antagonist in next spring's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, played by Jamie Foxx.

Marc Webb, the appropriately and ironically named director of The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2, won't be directing any of the films, but he will be overseeing the story development for the spinoffs, according to

First Full Trailer For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Released, Teases A Lot More Villains For Next Film

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A lot of people have been saying that with three major villains The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has gone too far. Well if you think three villains is a lot, wait until the next film.

After a brief teaser trailer focusing on new villain Electro (Jamie Foxx) arrived at Comic Con in July, the first official two-and-a-half-minute trailer has arrived and it looks, well, amazing.

"We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spide...

16 Of Our Favorite Blue Movie Characters, From 'Avatar' To 'X-Men'

8/5/2013 8:05pm EDT
Last week, director James Cameron promised not one, not two, but three sequels to his hit film Avatar.

Hot off the success of the 2009 film, Cameron revealed that there were plenty more tales to tell about the planet Pandora and its race of blue beings - the Na'vi.

Cameron plans on shooting the three sequels simultaneously, and he's got four new screenwriters on board to help him pen the three stories.

"Building upon the world we created with Avatar has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience," the director said in a statement. "In writing the new films, I've come to realize that...

Thor: The Dark World
Saturday was a huge day at this year's Comic Con, especially for Marvel studios.

The superhero movie-making factory had quite a few announcements to make, sending fans who were there (and who weren't there) into a frenzy over what's coming in the next two years.

To start, actor Tom Hiddleston reprised his role as Loki from "The Avengers," and the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World," trying hard to keep a straight face while in character to present the trailer for the "Thor" sequel.

Marvel also previewed next summer's sequel "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and the highly anticipated "Gu...

Jamie Foxx as Electro
The first teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released Thursday during San Diego's annual geek-Mecca Comic-Con, giving fans a first look at new villain Electro, played by Jamie Foxx.

The teaser is only 39-seconds long, showing Electro hooked up to some sort of table and explaining that he wants to know how powerful he actually is after gaining the ability to control electricity.

Fox plays Max Dillon, who becomes the super-villain after he's struck by lightning while working on power lines.

"I can feel it in the walls ... I feel it in my veins... You want to know how powerful I am? We...

Actress Shailene Woodley's role as Mary Jane Watson has been cut from the The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Producers decided to hold off on introducing the character in the series re-boot until the third film.

Naturally, Woodley is disappointed.

"Of course I'm bummed," she tells Entertainment Weekly. "But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason. MJ only appeared in a few scenes and I wouldn't trade the experience of working with Andrew (Garfield) and Emma (Stone) for three days on set for the world.

Andrew Garfield Plays Basketball With Kids - In Full 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Costume (Video)

5/23/2013 1:07pm EDT
The Amazing Spider-Man 2

How many kids can say they hit the court with Spidey?

Andrew Garfield paused his busy shooting schedule for the upcoming blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to play some basketball with a few lucky New York kids while still in costume.

A pair of amateur videos caught the star (and we're giving an educated guess it's actually Andrew, considering the security and entourage) trying his hand at a pickup game. He actually shows a few nice crossovers, and we bet it's not easy to see with that mask on.

After putting in a layup and missing a few shots, Garfield gives the kids high fives an...

Jamie Foxx Glows As Electro In New 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Photos

4/16/2013 12:00pm EDT
Jamie Foxx as Electro
Recent set photos have revealed Jamie Foxx' look as villain Electro in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it's probably not what many people had in mind. A blue, creepy-looking Foxx stalks the streets of New York, his face glowing out from under his hood.

It appears Foxx is playing the "Ultimate" version of Electro, who differs greatly from the spandex-clad antagonist of the original Spider-Man. The Ultimate line of comics was launched by Marvel in 2000 to offer a separate storyline from their mainstream comics. All of their main books were re-launched, from Spider-Man (he is in high s...
