Spider-Man Needs To Clean His Bedroom and Electro Has A Finalized Look In New Amazing Spider-Man Photos


Entertainment Weekly has been releasing a good number of new Amazing Spider-Man 2 images in and around their new Comic-Con issue.  In the picture above, you can see just how little Peter Parker cares about cleaning his room when there’s crime to fight, but the photo also reveals a quite serious looking wall of photos and a heavily post-it covered map of New York City. Head past the jump to see Andrew Garfield‘s Spidey and his new enemy, Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, face to face, and to see some crisp, detailed pictures of Electro.  Be warned if you don’t want to see the completed Electro look until the movie is released in Spring of 2014.

    Prayer Circle for Gwen Stacy. I don’t care what anyone says, her murder was the result of lack of creative ideas and the inability to figure out what to do with a female character.

    His room maybe messy, but I’ll give him props for being a fan of the Dogtown documentary instead of the feature film they made.

    Foxx looks like Mr Freeze.

    So Electro has a mangled left ear and a normal right ear, but with some kind of screen implanted above it. That is kinda weird without some context.

    No web? I call bullshit.

    My guess is that whatever accident/incident causes his transformation causes the damage to his ear. Whatever that implanty bit is is a harder thing to figure out. Self installed, perhaps? Or it could also be from the accident. They have made me curious so kudos there.

    I think that her accidental death was an important death because Spiderman caused it. She wasnt tortured and murdered and stuffed in a fridge.

    That looks a lot like the mutant from Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

    Through Marvel’s book of the dead cited on the wiki entry (that’s blocked where I am rn)

    The decision to kill Gwen Stacy was made jointly by Gerry Conway, John Romita Sr., and editor Roy Thomas.
    They killed Gwen because they did not know what to do with her anymore.
    Gwen and Peter had grown so close that they were bound to get married,
    but nobody at Marvel wanted a married Spider-Man: it would have
    drastically aged him and would have made plotting difficult. At the
    time, he was still a college student in his late teens. Furthermore, a
    breakup would have appeared unrealistic.[7]

    Whoa, my Mom has a vase that looks exactly like Electro!

    He’s still not as intimidating as a guy who chooses to wear a lightning-starfish mask in public.

    The original plan was to kill MJ (the newer of the two), but Romita convinced the others that Gwen’s death would have a greater impact on Spidey & readers. Keep in mind that Gwen wasn’t the scientific genius that they turned her into in the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon & Amazing Spider-Man movies to make her more rounded. Comic book Gwen was pretty shallow & has an idealized reputation because of her fridging. Gwen’s death made room for MJ to develop into a better character who was populr enough to marry Spidey.

  • Nat

    And yet they couldn’t take the time to say develop the character and make her more rounded instead of keeping her a cardboard stand in? Sorry, I’ve never been a fan of her and I’m tired of Mary Jane Watson. We have the opportunity to correct writer mistakes (creating a nuanced and well rounded character) and try something NEW.

    It took me a second to remember that “Dogtown” refers to the early days of skateboarding, not that depressing Lars Von Trier movie, Dogville.
