Sony To Release A Spider-Man Film Every Year, Assumes Anyone Cares

Also: A new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and confirmation that director Marc Webb will be returning to direct a third Spider-Movie. Hopefully he won’t pull a Raimi and turn in something completely awful. But even if he does… seriously, does anyone care about this series?

Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

…at least that’s what you’d think if you looked at McDonalds’ line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed “for boys,” while the Paul Frank monkeys are “for girls.” Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time.

Our Adorable Past

Sony Nears Agreement on Captain Planet Movie Deal

On my list of ’90s properties that really deserve a modern reboot but mysteriously haven’t gotten one yet, it’s Captain Planet. It’s certainly not the weirdest thing to ever try to capture the imaginations of kids in the 1990s, after all, I mean there was a Pac man show, Street Sharks, Road Rovers, and The Mighty Ducks cartoon. But the idea such a show could make it to a network release with the flabbergastingly heavy handed environmental message and a superhero whose secret weakness was the same as the disasters he sought to prevent and actually be pretty memorable and enjoyable for kids, well. Who among people my age does not get the Planeteers rap stuck in their head from time to time? Who among us cannot recite the whole thing from memory? Who among us remembers when Linka stopped being from the USSR and started being from Eastern Europe? Remember when they fought Hitler?

Here’s The New PlayStation 4…Controller

So, Sony had their huge PlayStation 4 event yesterday (watch the whole thing at Geekosystem). There was just one problem – nobody thought to bring a PlayStation 4. Ok, that probably wasn’t the case but really, guys? (And yes, we literally do mean GUYS.) We’ve got a look from a different angle after the jump.

Sony’s New Playstation Wonderbook Puts Harry Potter Magic In Your Hands

Sony introduced a crazy new piece of tech at E3 today. The product name is Wonderbook but the first “book” title they announced was called Book of Spells. Yup, that’s right, it’s Harry Potter related. Not only that, it was created in conjunction with J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore. Our sister site Geekosystem had a few things to say about it in their roundup of Sony’s E3 announcements but from what we know so far, it seems pretty cool. Hit the jump for another look at the device in mock-action plus a few more details.

Theater Executives Seriously Discuss Allowing Cell Phone Use During Movies

We’ve brought you stories before about texting in movie theaters and musical venues but now, some major theater executives have put their hat into the ring. The boxing analogy fits here, you see, because these executives are considering allowing cell phone use in theaters and a lot of moviegoers are not happy about it.

Questions! Questions That Need Answering

Will the World Accept Ashton Kutcher Playing Steve Jobs in an Indie Biopic?

Yesterday, in news that was promised to be true and not an April Fool’s prank, it was announced that Ashton Kutcher — of Ashton Kutcher fame — will be playing the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an indie biopic. Okay, so, going by only the side-by-side pictures alone (pic from Mashable, who were brainy enough to choose pictures from both men’s bearded phases), it’s not that insane of an idea. But then when you recall that Ashton Kutcher is not known for his acting, let alone playing, um, geniuses, this throws things into a different perspective. Let’s talk about this, shall we?
