Spider-Man could have been heading across to Marvel for 'Captain America: Civil War'.
The Sony leak has thrown up plenty of interesting titbits in recent weeks - there was Fury and Annie arriving online (the latter before it had hit cinemas), there was Scott Rudin's takedown of Angelina Jolie and now, the revelation that Marvel tried to get Spider-Man involved in Captain America: Civil War.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Andrew Garfield, was ripped apart by the critics upon release
Correspondence sent by Sony chief Amy Pascal reveals Marvel's approach about including Spider-Man in the third Captain America movie, Civil Wars, which is due for release in 2016. The superhero - currently played by Andrew Garfield in the recently rebooted series - plays a key role in the 2006 comic book storyline, though Sony holds the licensing rights to produce the films.

'The Theory Of Everything' star Eddie Redmayne was seen clutching 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Andrew Garfield's hand joyfully as they left a building during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. He was also accompanied by his fiancee Hannah Bagshawe.
Emma Stone was snapped on the red carpet at the opening of the 71st Venice Film Festival on Wednesday 27th August. The 'Birdman' actress looked beautiful in a plunging dark green gown and was sporting a new shorter haircut.
Bad news for fans of Spidey: there will be no new film featuring him until 2018.
The Amazing Spider 3 starring Andrew Garfield as the heroic webslinger was set to hit cinemas in 2016, but the title has been pushed back another years so audiences will have to wait a fair amount longer before the follow up to the second film, which came out earlier this year.

Emma Stone has revealed that her late grandfather regularly visits her and leaves quarters everywhere for her to find
It’s quite possible that Emma Stone has it all.She blooming gorgeous with an absolutely beautiful (and surely extremely well-spoken as he’s British) boyfriend. Not only that but she can act and has a very impressive movie catalogue to prove it which includes the hilarious Superbad, the zombie film with a funny twist, Zombieland and the action-packed Amazing Spider-Man series.

Try as they might, some movies just haven't lived up to our expectations this year.
We’re half way through 2014 and lets just say, it’s been a mixed bag at the cinema so far. Sure we’ve had some triumphs but we’ve also had a few that have left us leaving the theatre wishing we’d just stayed home and watched Netflix. While they might have taken our money, here’s the 10 movies which left leaving the cinema feeling the most disappointed so far this year.

Swift's Rhode Island hoe-down boasted an enviable guestlist.
Taylor Swift has yet again proven her flair for getting people together after having hosted a star-packed yet sophisticated Independence Day bash at her Rhode Island mansion. Lena Dunham, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Hart of Dixie's Jaime King, indie star Ingrid Michaelson and Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr.
The country pop star made sure all of her fans knew she was hosting the fashionable guests by tweeting a "Family portrait" of herself with her friends. The shot, which has nearly amassed 500K 'likes' on Instagram, shows Swift with nine of her closest girlfriends, including Girls' Dunham, Szohr, and Stone.
All of Taylor's photogenic friends posed demurely for the team photo, apart from Lena Dunham who flashed her middle finger to the camera whilst frowning. The Girls star's fans know her for her rejection of typical Hollywood ideals and her outlandish, offensive pose is sure to make them love her a little more.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have reportedly been engagement ring shopping in New York City. Are they are aren't they?
Reports are surfacing that our favourite Hollywood couple, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, are engaged. The pair have been dating for over two years and it’s being reported by Star Magazine that the couple were seen ring shopping in New York City…and it wasn’t just any old ring they were looking for!
Emma and Andrew were reportedly seen ring shopping in New York together last week
A source told Star Magazine: “They were looking for a loose emerald-shaped stone. They want to design an engagement ring together.” Nothing has been confirmed yet, but in the meantime it seems as though the couple will be moving in together in Los Angeles. It’s rumoured that they have been looking to buy a $10.5 million home together in the city. That’s just a cool $5.25 million each, so we doubt it will be anything too fancy. The Daily Star reported: “Andrew has been looking for somewhere in LA for ages but he believes he has now found a place that is perfect for them."

The video for Arcade Fire’s gay rights song, ‘We Exist’ features one of the most talked about actors of the moment, Andrew Garfield. And while the band’s intentions were both clear and admirable, the casting of the Spider-Man actor called in to question the lack of transsexual actors in big roles.

Laura Jane Grace, the lead singer of Against Me! And a transgender women herself expounded the criticism on Twitter. “Dear @arcadefire, maybe when making a video for a song called "We Exist" you should get an actual "Trans" actor instead of Spider-Man?” she wrote on Twitter.
Looks like Sony are serious about Spidey, if it's true
We know Sony are keen on stretching the Spider-Man web as thin as it’ll go, but will we really see another Spidey flick in-between now and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016?
Spider-Man battles Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
It’s all rumor, speculation and conjecture right now, but a report suggests that Andrew Garfield – the star of the franchise as the titular superhero - has been offered a multi-million dollar deal to play Peter Parker and his all-action alter-ego until 2020. What’s more, he's also contracted to appear in movies in 2015 and 2016.

Arcade Fire have released the video for 'We Exist', starring Andrew Garfield.
The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield stars in the video for Arcade Fire's We Exist, the third single to be taken from the band's third album Reflektor. Directed by David Wilson, it was partly shot at last month's Coachella Music Festival and sees Garfield in a bra. And a wig.
Arcade Fire Have Released the Video for 'We Exist'
The clip stars off in a rather melancholy fashion, with Garfield weeping as he shaves his head. As the sun rises, the actor heads down to a local bar where he's propositioned by a couple of guys. After heading over to the dance-floor, Garfield gets a bit of a beating, but when he's encouraged to walk through a psychedelic style tunnel, he suddenly finds himself in the crowd at an Arcade Fire show. He then jumps on-stage and really goes for it. It's about empowerment, we think.
Is it worth Sony bothering to make a further two 'Amazing Spider-Man' movies when 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' was panned by the critics?
Reviews have been a very mixed bag for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While fans of the franchise generally enjoyed the movie, the overall consensus was that it was entertaining, but just wasn’t quite up to scratch. The critics weren’t as kind as the fans. Anthony Lane from the New Yorker described the whole franchise as “running shockingly low on juice,” while Vulture’s David Edelstein outright said, “I think I’ll pass on The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn't received as well as expected
Well, sadly for David Edelstein, as a film critic he probably doesn’t have much choice when it comes to passing on The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Or The Amazing Spider-Man 4, for that matter. Back in December 2013 (before the current installment was released), Sony announced that a further two Amazing Spider-Man films were in the works. The third movie is set to be released in June 2016, and various details have been hinted through a series of easter eggs and teasers.

"Neighbors" ended up with a record debut this weekend.
There were big changes in the box office chart this weekend, with Neighbors easily charging past the previous highest earner, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While Neighbors had one of the highest debuts for an original R-rated comedy with $51,1 million, Spider-Man’s domestic earnings suffered significantly. The superhero flick, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone only made aroumd $37,2 million at home over the Friday-Sunday period – an estimated 59% drop, according to Box Office Mojo. While the home figures are disappointing, the movie is making up for it overseas. To date, it's earned $147.9 million, and is on pace to finish between $210 and $220 million.
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's collaboration is making a splash.
Neighbors, meanwhile, is following in the proud tradition of R-rated comedies and topped the debuts of hits like The Hangover, The Heat and 21 Jump Street. Seth Rogen in particular should be popping the champagne right about now, since the movie marks the highest grossing debut ever for a live-action Rogen movie ahead of The Green Hornet ($33.5 million).
If 'Neighbors' over-performs, and Spider-Man drops 50%, Seth Rogen could find himself top of the box-office.
The critical derision directed towards The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn't enough to stop Sony pulling in $95 million last week, though its long campaign to reach the heights of the original movie may falter this weekend when Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's acclaimed comedy Neighbors makes its bow.

Universal have marketed its latest comedy perfectly, with the buzz seemingly reaching fever pitch ahead of its domestic box-office debut. According to industry insiders who spoke with Variety, the movie could pull in $35 million to land the top spot.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' has performed poorly with the critics - so why have Sony already commissioned two further movies?
You would have been forgiven for assuming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had been a monumental success. It's everywhere. Posters, trailers, merchandise. Sony have gone big with the sequel to Marc Webb's 2012 movie and with Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti amongst the cast, you can bet your life this one was big, big, budget.

But then there's the reviews. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ranks way, way lower than previous Spidey movies and with 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, is still 8% lower than the second lowest ranked movie - Sam Raimi's 2007 movie Spider-Man 3. Next comes The Amazing Spider-Man, which introduced Garfield as the webbed hero and nabbed 73% from critics. Raimi's original movie Spider-Man scored 89%, though the superb sequel landed a stunning 93% in 2004 with the unrivalled Alfred Molina as villain Dr Octavius.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone continue to avoid confirming they are indeed a couple.
Spider-man stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have been dating for nearly three years and have worked to keep their relationship private. So they've been struggling lately to dodge questions while out on promotion duties for the film's release. The best thing they can do about it is turn the questions into a joke.
Andrew Garfield as 'The Amazing Spider-Man' 2
At last month's London premiere, Garfield went all cagey. "Who's my girlfriend?" he said when a journalist asked. "You're making an assumption about my personal life, and my personal life is not public property." All he would admit was that, yes, "we're acting together".

Emma Stone may be our new favourite actress. Why, you ask? We'll tell you.
We’re just going to go right ahead and say this, we may love Emma Stone as much as we love Jennifer Lawrence! Quite a claim, but we think we can back it up. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress gets more loveable each time she makes an appearance, she can do no wrong in our eyes. Her lip syncing stint on Jimmy Fallon the other night just totally sealed the deal. Syncing to Blue Traveler’s Hook and DJ Khaled’s All I do is Win, Emma had us in stitches. Even Jimmy found it hard to contain himself, having to really pull it together to perform his second song.

The film isn't perfect, but there's a lot to love about this sequel.
It must be pretty frustrating for American fans of the Spider-Man franchise who are left drumming their fingers on the table waiting to be the last country to experience this Marvel superhero sequel. With only two days to go, the excitement towards Marc Webb's epic action movie is palpable and it will all be worth it - if you listen to what most critics are saying.
In All, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Has Gone Down Well With Critics.
A jam-packed movie sees Peter Parker (Adnrew Garfield), AKA Spidey, battle a vicious wave of new foes, including Jamie Foxx's super-charged villain Electro and Dane DeHaan's wicked Green Goblin. However, young Peter has a tricky balancing act to do, making sure that his Aunt May (Sally Field) is kept in the dark about his powerful alter-ego and that his relationship girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) is maintained despite the relentless onslaught of baddies.

The star of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Andrew Garfield arrives at the movie's premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York. The Marc Webb directed film sequel sees Spider-Man challenge new foes including Electro, The Rhino and his former friend Harry Osborn of the weapons corporation Oscorp.
As with the too-early franchise reboot in 2012, this sequel struggles to balance the demands of a teen romance with a superhero blockbuster. The interpersonal storylines are sharply written and skilfully played by the gifted cast, but the eye-catching effects sequences feel like little more than a shiny distraction. Action fans will love the way digitally animated Spidey swings more realistically than ever down the streets of New York, but the fact remains that these scenes are cartoons. And a new template is badly needed for this genre.
It kicks off as Peter (Andrew Garfield) nearly misses his high school graduation to save the city from another crazed nutcase. His girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone) is fed up, and then crushed when Peter breaks up with her because he's worried about her safety. So she considers taking a place at Oxford University to get away. Meanwhile, Peter is also trying to understand the truth about why his parents (Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz) left him to be raised by his Aunt May (Sally Field). But he's interrupted from all of this by the arrival of old pal Harry (Dane DeHaan), back in town to inherit the family business from his dying dad (Chris Cooper) and in need of moral support from Peter.
In each of these three plot strands, Peter faces a significant dilemma that's beautifully played by Garfield as a cheeky, good guy who worries about the darkness all around him. And there's also a nefarious side-plot trying to take over the movie, as nerdy technician Max (Jamie Foxx) is transformed by an electric shock from Spider-man's biggest fan to a spark-emitting villain called Electro. This shift doesn't make sense on any level, and Harry also has a sudden personality change that's badly under-explained, forcing the film into a series of huge action showdowns along with a completely irrelevant aside about two colliding airplanes that feels tacked on to up the human stakes.

Spider-Man is Jewish, according to Andrew Garfield.
He's The Amazing Spider-Man, and he's very much Jewish - this according to the man that plays the superhero in the latest franchise, Andrew Garfield. The British-American actor, who was brought up Jewish, suggests that Spidey's neuroses are a sure-fire sign that the character is culturally Jewish.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hits In May
"Spider-man is neurotic. Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off," Garfield told Time Out. "He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature." Whether or not Spider-Man is of Jewish religion has been the subject of feverish internet speculation for years, but it seems Garfield, 30,has already made up his mind.

Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan and director Marc Webb were all in London to walk the red carpet at the world premiere of The Amazing Spider-man 2 on Thursday.

Over in Los Angeles, Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Chadwick Boseman, Ellen Burstyn and Frank Langella turned up for the premiere of the American football drama Draft Day. And in New York, it was Colin Firth and Jeremy Irvine who appeared at the premiere of their new movie The Railway Man. Both films open this weekend across America. Look through our photos from the premiere of Summit Entertainment's 'Draft Day' at the Regency Village Theatre, Los Angeles.
Reviews are beginning to crop up on the internet for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'. What's the initial consensus and what can we expect when the film is finally released in May?
We still have about three weeks to wait until The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finally hits the big screen but we’re already bursting with anticipation. The photos and trailers that have been gradually trickling through have really managed to whet our appetites! We predict that this one is going to the best of all the spider-man movies that have been released over the past 12 years or so (sorry Tobey!), if only because Dane DeHaan’s green goblin looks absolutely freaking terrifying! The chemistry between Garfield and Stone is always palpable when they’re in a scene together as well, it’s part of what gives the franchise its magic.
The promotional shots for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 look exhilerating
Although there’s still a while to wait, a few reviews have started to circulate the web (get it?!), we thought we’d gather them all up and see what they have to say. We’ll try and put a good spin on it! We’re just firing out the spidey puns left, right and center today.

The movie's over-abundance of villains is made up for with on-screen chemistry and savvy direction.
The Amazing-Spider Man 2 is out in the UK on April 16, more than two weeks ahead of its US premiere. However, thanks to the magic of press screenings, the reviews for it have already made their way online – most of them positive.
Jamie Foxx's character seems to be a major selling point of the movie.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Leslie Felperin is mostly impressed with Garfield’s second outing with Spider-Man, even if the film is a bit too packed with villains. “The eponymous hero hits his super-heroic stride here, as does Andrew Garfield in the role, especially when Spider-Man's alter ego Peter Parker learns there's always some fine print in a contract with this many benefits,” Felperin writes. “Likeable as a lollipop” Emma Stone also gets a commendation, as does Jamie Foxx, playing a perfectly maniacal, pushed to the brink Electro: “Even under all the prosthetic make-up and visual effects, Foxx manages to project a literally white-hot rage and damaged psyche that threatens to upstage the core romantic plot about Peter and Gwen's relationship.”
'The Amazing Spiderman 2' will not only see the return of Spidey, Gwen Stacy and the Green Goblin but will introduce new characters set for their own spin-off film: The Sinister Six.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 is set to be released on May 2nd in the US and April 18th in the UK, with the release date mere weeks away rumors are flying surrounding the plot and the possibility of further expanding the Marvel comic universe.

This spider loves water! Garfield wasn't feeling the pressure of his upcoming release as he surfed down under.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have been living it up under an Australian sun recently as the Amazing Spider-Man co-stars and real-life couple headed down under for a taste of life in Sydney. The duo weren't just visiting for fun though: they had busy work to do promoting their new film, the release of which lies only weeks away.

Touching down in Australia is an important checkpoint for the film as it will be one of the first countries to catch a glimpse of the eagerly-anticipated new movie when it is released next month. However, Andrew took a break from the heavy press work by scooting on down to the famous Bondi Beach and sharing his surfing skills with some very delighted young children.
Andrew Garfield seems to have nailed Spidey's sense of humour in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer, but where does the trailer go wrong?
The latest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been released and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. The opening shot of Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man free-falling through New York is the visual equivalent of a roller coaster, thrilling and putting you on the edge of your seat for the rest of the trailer.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The CGI used looks to be the most impressive of all Spider-Man movies so far (including the unceremoniously halted McGuire movies). The trailer doesn’t have the darkness of recent superhero movies, Peter Parker isn’t brooding and troubled like Nolan’s The Dark Knight or Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel. “You know what it is I love about being Spider-Man?” Garfield asks as the trailer opens, “Everything.”

Spider-man negotiates, relates and escapes in these brilliant new clips
Andrew Garfield reprises his role as the web-slinging city-sprawling Spider-Man in The Amazing-Spider Man 2, which hits cinemas on April 18. In these new clips, we get a glimpse of both Electro’s explosive power, but of Garfield’s comic acting, which compliments the action nicely.
The Amazing-Spider Man 2 - living up to the name
Hype for this film is big. With Jamie Foxx looking amazing as Electro and Paul Giamatti looking pretty crazy as Rhino, comic book fans can’t wait to get their eyes on the second Amazing instalment, especially after the first fared so well with the critics. Of course, Sony Pictures will care more about the box office – and it didn’t fair too badly their either.
Peter Parker is facing a period of deep confusion in every aspect of his life. No longer is everything black and white, nor is it easy to know what the right thing to do is anymore. He's struggling to cope with the death of his dear Uncle Ben, while still feeling unfamiliar with his past in regards to his parents. He's also trying to hold down a relationship with Gwen Stacy, but she ultimately adds to his troubles when she finds herself in a dilemma of her own. Meanwhile in his professional capacity as Spider-Man, he's not finding it easy to differentiate between the villains, the heroes and the just plain hard-done by. He faces deadly battles with the formidable Rhino and the rage-filled Electro; the latter of who it turns out is just as frightened of his own power as everybody else is. It turns out that there is a darker force happening elsewhere, and when his friend Harry Osborn returns, he starts to see OsCorp's sinister involvement.
