  1. Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Doesn’t Quite Live Up to Its Adjective

    Review

    Another weekend, another comic book movie. This time it's Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which brings back Andrew Garfield as the friendly neighborhood web-slinging superhero. The Spidey parts of the movie are fantastic, but the rest of it? Well, read my spoiler-free thoughts:

    "Hey, you know that Amazing Spider-Man sequel that no one's particularly excited for and that hasn't even come out yet?" One Sony executive must have said to another in a marketing meeting. "You know what would be a great idea for the Blu-Ray release? Putting the discs in a giant Uncanny Valley bust of a character who no one cares about."

    Today in Awesome

    Label activities like sewing and needlework as inherently "feminine"? Not on Emma Stone's watch! Even if you're dating her, she will take you down. I'm not entirely satisfied with Andrew Garfield's response, but I like to think he's learned a thing this day.

    Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

    Spider-Man has one of the best rogues galleries of any superhero.

Jamie Foxx is portraying the galvanized would-be gangster in the upcoming film Amazing Spider-Man 2. So let's take a look at this villain's fashion choices in the mainstream comics over the years, shall we?

    Once More With Feeling

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

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    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.

  13. Here’s Jamie Foxx As The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Electro. It’s Weird. You’ve Been Warned.

    Meanwhile...

    Well we already knew they weren't going to make Jamie Foxx dress up in a yellow and green supervillain costume for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but I'm not sure this is what anyone expected Electro to look like. Those lights might be tracking dots with the added value of creating some electric glow to help with post-production but what do you think of the look? Looks like they're taking the mutated villain route again. I'm assuming this is an in between look and that he'll have a full costume later in the film.

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    [My daughter] dressed as Spider-Man for Halloween and had a Spider-Man jumper. Yesterday, I took her to the set, she didn’t know [that I had been cast], and she says, ‘What is this?’ I said, ‘Daddy’s going to be in ‘Spider-Man. She says, ‘Is Spider-Man going to beat you up?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know.” She says, ‘Good.’ - Jamie Foxx, who will be playing the villain Electro in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. According to Foxx, his daughter also had a Spider-Man themed birthday party last year. Welcome to the fold, Ms. Foxx, and if anybody tells you you're faking it, make sure they know your dad's gone toe to toe with Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. (via Access Hollywood.)
