Will We See Spidey Again Before The Amazing Spider-Man 3 In 2016?


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Marc Webb

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?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2Spider-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.

Video For Arcade Fire's 'We Exist' Stars Andrew Garfield. In A Bra [Video]


Arcade Fire 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. 

The Amazing Spider-ManArcade 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 Making 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3'?


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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 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" Parties On Top Of Box Office Chart, While Spidey Suffers Massive Drop


Seth Rogen Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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, Townies Film Set
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).

Noisy 'Neighbors' Ready To Crash Spider-Man's Party With $35 Million Bow


Seth Rogen Zac Efron Andrew Garfield Spider Man

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.

With 55%, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Is The Worst Spidey Movie Yet


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Paul Giamatti Jamie Foxx

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.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2Andrew Garfield in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

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.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: A Real-Life Couple


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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.

Amazing Spider-Man 2Andrew 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".

Here's Why We Love 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Actress Emma Stone


Emma Stone Andrew Garfield

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2' Gets Thumbs-Up: Are You Ready USA?


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2In 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 Amazing Spider-man 2 Review


Good

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. Because Andrew Garfield Says So.


Andrew Garfield Spider Man Stan Lee Emma Stone

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 2The 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.

Just How Good Will 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Be?


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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.

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 Reviews Are In: "The Amazing Spider-Man" Franchise Finds Its Footing With Sequel


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Jamie Foxx

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.

Amazing Spider-Man 2
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.”

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer, A Critical Discussion


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

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 2The 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.”

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.

Andrew Garfield has earned some serious brownie points with his latest stunt – an organized outing with Batkid.

What The Latest Trailer Tells Us About 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Jamie Foxx

At nearly four minutes long, the latest trailer for Amazing Spider-Man 2 packed in as much action as the Superbowl when the full length version finally debuted on Sunday. The clip has given us some answers along with more questions, plenty of gasps and even a few laughs as we prepared for the latest Spider-Man instalment. So here’s what we learnt from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer.

Andrew Garfield as Spider-ManAndrew Garfield as Spider-Man finds a new enemy in Electro

What does Peter Parker love about being Spider-Man? Everything.
Maybe he’s speaking too soon, but while sitting, looking out on New York we hear Peter Parker say, "you know what it is I love about being Spider-Man? Everything.” Whilst job satisfaction is usually a good thing you cant help but worry about what’s to come for our geeky hero.

Superheroes get the worst groupies.
You’d expect Spider-Man to have to deal with his fair share of hero worshippers, but after saving Max Dillon, played by the fantastic Jamie Foxx, Spider-Man is left with the most fanatical of all fanboys who not only worships the masked hero but is heard repeating. “I wish I was like him.” Which leads us into…

The shock of Electro.
It doesn't take that long for Max Dillion’s wish to be more like his hero to come true, but not in the way he'd of hoped. The birth of Electro is revealed as we see Foxx’s character falling into a pool of water brimming with electric eels. He then takes his frustration out on a crowded Times Square and comes face to face with his former hero and now nemesis, Spider-Man.

Peter Parker has always had difficulty trying to prioritise his life.

After Three Years Of "Meh" 'Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark' Musical Is Off Broadway


Bono Andrew Garfield

Whoever thought doing a Spider-Man musical was a good idea shouldn’t be allowed to write things down, because it wasn’t, and after a huge waste of time, money and effort, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has officially been removed from Broadway and shipped out to Vegas. The whole thing has been a nightmare, with major injuries and huge, high-profile legal cases blighting the musical’s progress.

The thing cost $75m to create (making it the most expensive musical ever), and while the show has grossed $203m, the high - $1m-per-week! - running costs have rendered it a financial disaster. Producer Jeremiah J Harris thinks a reconfigured version of the show will prosper in a different city, according to The New York Times.

"We could run for probably another three to five years being stuck in the middle. We think it will play Las Vegas with a greater bang than it did in New York,” explained Harris. “Economically we have a greater opportunity in the Las Vegas market," added the producer, who said the show would return in 2015.

Footage from the first trailer for the film has made it's way online, taken from a sneaky Comic-Con goer who managed to film the whole thing on his phone (and judging by the quality of the video, he was either sat all the way at the back of the convention room, or has a lousy camera).

Andrew Garfield On A Gay Spiderman: "That's Just Not Going To Work"


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Jamie Foxx Michael B. Jordan

Andrew Garfield has progressive ideas for Spiderman. Earlier this month, the British-American star mused on the idea of Spidey turning gay, "Why can't we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It's hardly even groundbreaking!" he said, in conversation with Entertainment Weekly.

The comic-book characters certainly need to move in fresh directions, whether it be time, place, or something more specific to the characters, such as gender, race or sexual orientation. The Avengers moved forward a little, the Dark Knight franchise featured giant strides for Batman, and - to some extent - The Wolverine pushed things on with its Japanese setting.

This week at San Diego Comic-Con, Garfield revisited his ideas though assured the crowd that Spiderman will not be turning gay anytime soon.

What We Learnt From This Years San Diego Comic-Con: Full Round-Up Of Events


Joss Whedon Clark Gregg Cobie Smulders Vin Diesel Andrew Garfield Marc Webb Jim Carrey

At the Mecca of Geekdom - the San Diego Comic-Con International - the annual Comic-Con kick started in front of an eager audience this Thursday (July 18), with the our-day event already revealing some rather juicy pieces of information about what future films and TV shows have in store. Here's what we know so far, following the first two days of geeky gossip at the annual gathering.

Cobie Smulders
Smulders appeared in the 'Agents' pilot

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of the biggest talking points of the firsts two days, as ABC's Avenger's spin-off was discussed by a panel including Avengers director Joss Whedon and Agents... star Clark Gregg. Gregg discussed the miraculous recovery of his Avengers character Agent Phil Coulson, who was 'killed' by Loki in the first Avengers film only to return in time for his own starring series. Revelers got more than just a frank talk, as they were treated to a world premiere of the pilot episode for Agents..., which featured fellow Avengers star Cobie Smulders and was directed by Whedon. For those of you who weren't at Comic-Con, the series premieres on September 24.

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Teaser Launched: First Look At Jamie Foxx As Creepy Electro [Video]


Jamie Foxx Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Paul Giamatti

A chilling teaser clip has been released ahead of the release of Spider-Man 2 showing new villain Electro played by Jamie Foxx. Comic-Con fans got the first glimpse of the scary new baddie this weekend, in a clip that shows Electro AKA Max Dillon attached to the machine that bestows him with his unique electrical super powers. We see wires, we see pipes, we hear a menacingly rasping voice taking to an unknown off-screen character "I can feel it in the walls," he says. "I feel it in my veins. No matter what you do doc, you can't contain it. "You wanna know how powerful I am? Well I would love to. I'm Electro!" Not exactly original for any action movie bad guy but still, chills.

At a first - and very brief glance - Jamie Foxx's Electro does look like an electrocuted version The Da Vinci Code's self-flagellating sect member Silas and his portrayal of the originally green-suited, yellow-masked zappmeister is somewhat darker than Marvel Comics probably would have intended. However, the Django Unchained actor's version of Electro is one that fits more closely with Marvel's Ultimate Universe, where the character's powers are a product of bioengineering, rather than a freak accident.

Spiderman may be just under a year away – for those that care to do the maths, that’s ages – but that hasn’t stopped the buzz. And rarely is that buzz stronger (buzzier) than it is when a new bit of footage is released. Comic-Con 2013 provided us with just that.

“I can feel it in the walls. I feel it in my veins,” warns the latest Spider-Man villain in the latest piece of footage revealed. “No matter what you do doc, you can’t contain it. You want to know how powerful I am? Well I want to know too. I’m Electro,” he says.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 3 & 4' Are On Their Way As Andrew Garfield Signs Up For Two More Spidey Films


Andrew Garfield Paul Giamatti Emma Stone Jamie Foxx Spider Man

Andrew Garfield has committed himself to the Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise by agreeing to appear in a further two films with Sony Pictures. The production company announced the franchise's expansion into four movies in a statement release on Monday (June 17), although no other information was released about the film, so feel free to let your imagination run wild.

Garfield is going to go one further than Tobey Maguire did in his turn as Spiderman and the actor is already filming the finishing touches for the second Amazing Spider-Man film, which is due out in May next year. The studio also announced that the films will be released in relatively quick succession, just as the second film is swiftly wrapping up with filming. The studio announced that the third and fourth instalments of the film will be release on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018 respectively.

Before we can begin to think about the third and fourth films, let take the time to relish what we have in store when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released. Garfield's Spidey has all kinds of trouble to deal with this time round, with his personal problems going to heck when Peter Parker's other love interest, Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) shows up, much to the displeasure of Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy. If his personal life wasn't hectic enough, there's two baddies around this time for him to battle, with Paul Giamatti playing a gangster-fied version of Rhino and Jamie Foxx set to send sparks flying as Electro. The fittingly named Marc Webb will return to direct too.

3rd & 4th Instalments Of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Have Been Agreed By Sony


Andrew Garfield Spider Man Jamie Foxx Paul Giamatti

Whilst filming for the sequel of 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man is still underway, the bosses at Sony Pictures have already decided that they will extend the film franchise for another two film, at the very least, after it was announced that a third and fourth follow-on to the superhero movie have already been place in pre-production.

In an announcement made by Sony Pictures bosses on Monday (June 17), current Spidey Andrew Garfield has agreed to stop on for the planned films and filming for the movies will beging almost as soon as Spidey 2 has been distributed. The studio announced that the third and fourth instalments of the film will be release on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018 respectively.

In slightly more current news, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due in cinemas by May 2, 2014, and features a similar make-up to its predecessor in terms of personel worKing on the project. Like the 2012 movie, Garfield will return as the web-slinging hero and the fittingly named Marc Webb will return to direct. Emma Stone returns as Gwen Stacy, with Shailene Woodley joining the cast as Peter Parker's other love interest, Mary Jane Watson. Chris Cooper will appear as Norman Osborn and Dane DeHaan will play his son Harry, with Paul Giamatti and Jamie Foxx set to portray the two villainous roles as Rhino and Electro respectively.

'The Amazing Spider Man 2' filming continued to get underway in New York on Sunday (May 26th 2013) leaving behind it a trail of destruction on the City streets.

A particularly devastating scene was spotted being filmed, with a mass of crashed, overturned and ablaze vehicles littering the set. Andrew Garfield was in his Spider Man garb as he addressed onlookers from atop a smashed up car through a loudspeaker. He is also seen approaching a young boy in a copycat outfit who, after what looks like a pep talk with Peter Parker's alter-ego, subsequently flees the riotous scene. The scene is the latest of on set sneak peeks that have slowly been accumulating after snaps emerged of 'Django Unchained' star Jamie Foxx showing off his new look as the blue villain Electro and Paul Giamatti from 'Cinderella Man' making a fierce appearance as equally evil baddie The Rhino. Meanwhile, Emma Stone has revealed a MAJOR spoiler about her own character (though we won't reveal it for those who haven't read the prophetic comics).

Jamie Foxx Has Got The Blues As Electro In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'


Jamie Foxx Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Chris Cooper Dane DeHaan Paul Giamatti Felicity Jones

Everyone got a glimpse of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in some newly released pictures from the set of the movie.

In the stills, Foxx is seen wearing creepy blue makeup and a grey hood. This means that the movie will significantly deviate from the original version of the villain, which was portrayed wearing a bright green suit with a yellow lightning mask. According to the LA Times, this portrayal of Electro will more closely resemble his Ultimate incarnation, which also has a different backstory – being the result of genetic experimentation, instead of a power line accident. It isn’t clear yet how much of the back story the producers plan to keep, but Foxx did give the reasons behind the choice of costume in an interview with Blackfilm back in December: “They want to have it more grounded and not as comic book-y, so it won’t be green and yellow,” he said. “They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen [sic]. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.”

Sounds pretty cool to us. The sequel to the 2012 film is due in May of next year and, as previously announced, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will be reprising their roles. Additionally, Shailene Woodley will join the cast as Mary Jane Watson, Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan as Norman Osborn and his son Harry, Paul Giamatti reportedly as villain the Rhino, and Colm Feore and Felicity Jones in roles yet to be announced.
