Andrew Garfield Has No Idea How The Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Was Supposed to End, So Don’t Ask Him
Andrew Garfield's run at Spider-Man only lasted through The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 before getting cut short. But how was the trilogy supposed to end? We'll never know... but we can guess.Read More

"Great Hera!" "By Odin's beard!" *pause* *louder shouting* "Great! Hera!" *even louder shouting* "By Odin's! Beard!"
It's been more than ten years since the last time DC and Marvel got it together long enough to make a crossover book, and if you think the negotiations between New Line and Warner Bros. over rights to produce and distribute The Hobbit were bad, scale New Line up to a company the size of Disney, throw in Sony Pictures and Fox Studios, and consider how unlikely it is that we'd get any of them to make a movie bridging the Justice League, Avengers, X-Men, and Spider-Man universes.Read More
Gotham better watch out.
If only it weren't part of DC's black and white series and we could get a pop of Babs Tarr's amazing colors in there! At least it looks totally rad—from all angles, too.Read More
Somewhere Kevin Feige is laughing hysterically.
You know, people say that Marvel took a big risk with a movie based on Guardians of the Galaxy, but it's paid off for them in more ways than one. Sure they have a new franchise with an extra actor named "Chris" and all those piles of money, but you know what else it did? It made all those studios who are still feebly holding onto the filming rights of Marvel characters feel like they have to try risky moves as well, and it all falls apart. Or at least it's going to, probably.Read More
"Has that been up there the whole time?"
So there are rumors floating around that the female-led superhero film Sony announced for a possible 2017 release (after their proposed Sinister Six and Venom Carnage ones, of course) is going to be a team-up movie with multiple female characters, and already has a title: Glass Ceiling. Oh, uh. Okay. But what could have possibly led to such an... err... idea? Allow me to propose a possible scenario.Read More
Marvel has been announcing a seemingly-endless number of events for next summer, but today's caught our interest especially because... is that Mayday?!Read More

Is your spider-sense tingling?
Our own Jill Pantozzi moderated the spotlight panel on The Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, where they talked about all the important topics, like what Slott always wanted to be when he grew up—which most of us would probably like to be, too—and the difficulty of getting fart jokes into Ren and Stimpy.Read More
I'd probably cut my ear off if I had to listen to Mal's mouth all the time.

Oh dear, what an awesome situation.
Conceptual artists Jerad S. Marantz and Kelton Cram have two things in common: they both worked on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and they both really enjoy drawing Angelina Jolie with various types of badass horns on her head. You're going to want to see this, because as gorgeous as Maleficent looked in the Disney film, we simply cannot get enough of lady horns.Read More
Things We Saw Today
My Spidey Sense Is Tingling
Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character's comic book life, and I do believe that we can do that. It's something I'm really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of co-existing, or passing on the torch. I don't have an answer, but I think it's actually a really important move. I think it's a really beautiful and important move. I want it to feel like a circle. I want the two ends to join, somehow. I don't know what that means, yet. I don't know what that means in terms of the quantity of Spider-Man movies I do. But I know that I don't particularly want to be a 40-year-old Spider-Man. I do know that time is fleeting. -- Andrew Garfield, to Comic Book Resources. Andrew Garfield is no stranger to speaking out on the potential to broaden the representational value of Peter Parker by changing is race or sexuality. He came out unequivocally against folks threatening black actor Donald Glover over the idea that some folks thought he would make a good Peter Parker where other actors might have decided not to comment at all. He's talked about the potential inherent in making Peter Parker a hero for the bisexual community by making Mary Jane a male character. It doesn't surprise me that he's given enough thought to Miles Morales, the biracial black/Puerto Rican kid who succeeded Peter Parker as Spider-Man in the alternate Ultimate Marvel universe after the latter's untimely death, that he has a thoughtful answer ready. Though it does make me wish he, as an actor, had any control over the future of the Spider-Man franchise.Read More
The idea of the year 2018 is pretty surreal, isn't it? That's when The Amazing Spider-Man IV is slated to come out... for now. Producer Matt Tolmach told Den of Geek that the release date might not be as set in stone, and that the May 4th, 2018 spot might go to another film in the franchise. Waiting until 2019 for the ultimate film in the Amazing Spider-Man franchise? That's surreal. But admittedly nowhere near as surreal as this commercial for Evian of all things.Read More
