With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arriving in theaters a little over a month from now, Sony’s marketing team is pushing to reveal just about everything they can from the film to discourage the audience from feeling a sense of genuine surprise. Makes sense. Thus, today we have a good look all up in the bad-toothed grill of Dane DeHaan‘s heretofore little-seen Green Goblin.

It’s good to see Frankie Muniz is working again. We’ve all really missed you. (SuperHeroHype)

Although our ticket purchase displays our willingness to believe a radioactive spider bite can cause awesome powers, Sony is now toying with our suspension of disbelief. The newest trailer for Amazing Spider-Man 2 shows Electro gaining his powers by being electrocuted while also in a tank filled with genetically-enhanced electric eels. A) why does science even need those, B) somebody please put a lid on that tank. That’s like the fourth crazy electric guy we’ve accidentally created this calendar year, C) the science that went into Gremlins 2 was more plausible.

That being said, the movie looks pretty cool! Let’s just cool it with these questionable origins. If we let them get away with this, they’ll find a way to introduce a Mary Jane whose legs transform into tank wheels.

No. These are not Ying Yang Twins lyrics but the first we hear from Jamie Foxx as Electro. This is just a tease to tide us over until this Saturday when Sony and Marc Webb reveal exclusive footage of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain at Comic-Con. Rumor has it he’ll be twerking.

Up until this point, the only glimpse we had of Jamie Foxx playing Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were from on-set spy photos that didn’t feature his costume or final effects. Back then I joked that he looked like Mr. Freeze’s nutsack. This was all in good fun because the effects weren’t yet finished and of course the end result would look awesome and less like a nutsack.

Now, the Comic-Con Preview issue of Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Foxx’s Electro doesn’t just look like a nutsack, but like a nutsack about to go nuclear. Seriously. You might wanna get that thing checked out, buddy.

Check out the cover below and let’s hope that Paul Giamatti‘s The Rhino doesn’t end up looking like a taint.

Unless Michel Gondry is now directing, I’d guess that the Stryofoam Mech bodysuit Paul Giamatti is awkwardly standing around in on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set is just the pre-CGI foundation for something that won’t be revealed until the second or third trailer. However, this third-grade science fair costume does seem to be a bit more intricate than most mocap suits and may likely provide a hint of what’s to come. Take a look below and here’s hoping the final realized version looks more like the Rhino and less like a robotic moose knuckle.

When it was announced that Jamie Foxx would play Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we all immediately knew that he would look ridiculous. But we didn’t count on this. This is a version of ridiculous that didn’t even enter our framed realms of possibility.

Set photos have revealed a first look at Foxx that point to the Ultimate Spider-Man version of Electro for inspiration. Or Mr. Freeze’s nutsack. Both are accurate estimations. Not pictured in these photos are Electro’s awesome costume that Foxx has mentioned in past interviews. Instead, we see Foxx dressed in a hoodie and overcoat stumbling through the streets of Manhattan — a look often referred to as “the Cuba Gooding, Jr.” (The Superficial)

When Jamie Foxx was announced as the villain Electro in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I was particularly delighted because if they followed the classic model, he’d look pretty silly in the costume. Welp, fans of guys covered in lighting bolts and spandex will have to hold out for a Shazam movie because from what Jamie Foxx tells MTV, it’s likely he’ll just look like Hancock with different sunglasses.

Marc Webb and all of those guys, they’re smart. They know that it has to make sense in 2013, so the suit is really slick. It’s actually black. It’s a new age.”

Fingers crossed that this is what they came up with:

After an intense search of actors we’ve barely heard of, Sony and Marc Webb have found their Harry Osborn for the Amazing Spider Man sequel. Not surprisingly, the role went to the most buzzed about actor on the short list.

Chronicle’s Dane DeHaan was announced to have won the part when director Marc Webb tweeted: “Meet Harry Osborn. So excited to have him on board. @danedehaan.”

He’ll join the returning Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, as well as Jamie Foxx‘s Electro and Shailene Woodley’s Mary Jane. DeHaan turned in an impressive performance in Chronicle as a troubled teen corrupted by super powers. It’s unclear what kind of work he’ll have to do in this film, but would prove a fine choice if he suits up as the Green Goblin in future sequels. (THR)

We may have to wait a little longer for the Sheneneh and Wanda Skank Robbers movie. Jamie Foxx will soon be seen in one of the biggest roles of his already big career with Django Unchained, and it looks like he’s got another high-profile part lined up. Fox is in talks to play the electricity-based villian Electro in Sony’s sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

It’s great exposure and a great payday, but I’m worried the costume will be just a tad more ridiculous than dressing as Wanda. What price your shame, Mr. Foxx? What price your shame? (Variety)

You know what was missing from Raimi’s Spider-Man movies? Sick ollies. That injustice has been corrected.

The new Australian trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man gives us a glimpse of more the action that The Land Down Under demands. We’ve got Emma Stone thrown out a window, Spidey and the Lizard tickle-fighting as they fall to their deaths, football skills, and Curt Connors possibly masturbating at his desk. I’d expect that of Dylan Baker, but not you Rhys Ifans.

Not to be outdone in the week that brings us a final Dark Knight Rises trailer and the release of The Avengers, Sony is back with another trailer for this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Here we’re pulled into Peter Parker’s world as he web-slings high about the streets of…. Neo-Tokyo? I guess that’s the super-slick Hollywood version of New York City. Filmed on location in the Neon Skyscraper District.

In addition to the action, we’re also given a glimpse of the mystery. Who is that raspy-voiced, shadowy figure demanding to know if Dr. Curt Connors told Peter the truth about his father. Is it Norman Osborne? Peter’s dad?? Denis Leary after a heavy smoking day??? All will be revealed when The Amazing Spider-Man opens in theaters on June 30th.

The post ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Trailer Just Might Match The Hype appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Today, a worldwide event took place for The Amazing Spider-Man. At cities around the globe, the trailer for the film was previewed to chosen fans and media, while bigger markets also got a Spidey-related celebrity in attendance of the screening, as well.

While NYC got Spider-Man himself in Andrew Garfield, we in Los Angeles ran a close second, scoring director Marc Webb, who introduced both the 3D trailer, and a five-minute, 2D “sizzle reel” that told the story of THIS Spider-Man using clips from the film.

While it would seem that the story of Spider-Man is old hat given that we’ve experienced three films in the past decade or so, Webb took pains to clarify that the film wasn’t interested in rehashing material covered by the Raimi/Maguire films. A new Spider-Man (Garfield) has a new love interest in Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone, who was beamed in via satellite from her screening in Rio de Janeiro), and he’s got a new set of problems in villain Dr. Connors, (Rhys Ifans).

What Webb stressed (and both the trailer and sizzle reel hinted at) was that this film tells us the story of what happened to Peter Parker’s parents, which is told through his relationship with his Aunt and Uncle, as well as his struggle with Dr. Connors, who was his father’s partner in science.

Other than that, the film focuses largely on a hipper-than-Tobey teenager who has a crush on Stone’s Stacy. Stacy’s father (Denis Leary) just happens to be the policeman tasked with hunting down Spider-Man, so the scenes between the two are filled with an honest tension that didn’t exist so much in the earlier films.

And that’s the story as told by the trailer. The real reveal here (the fate of Parker’s parents) is alluded to, but not demonstrated, though Webb touted that as a selling point of the film. Beyond that, Webb’s sensibilities coming from (500) Days of Summer make this film seem almost like an indie love story in much the same fashion that Christopher Nolan was able to make The Dark Knight feel like a crime film.

In short, the trailer suggested this film has enough heart and character development to appeal to those outside the fanboy set.

Story aside, how does the movie look?

It looks great. Webb stressed the use of 3D cameras in filming, not the “bullshit” conversion technique. Much has been made of the use of 3D as Spider-Man wings through New York, and the footage lives up to the hype. The action feels made for IMAX.

A big element of the trailer was a bombastic, epic score that made even these three minutes feel important. I felt that the original three films never hoped to be more than “cute,” and while this one appears very heartfelt (an awkward interaction early on between Peter and Stacy shows a soul that eludes most superhero films), it also feels like this is a story that’s asking to be told, rather than one that’s created.

While Columbia certainly wants to put its best foot forward with the trailer, including all the “money shots” that make the 3D seem worthwhile, it’s the more low-key moments that left me wanting more. In the theater lobby after the viewing, Sony execs were loudly celebrating a tweet from the audience that read something along the lines of “(Christopher) Nolan has found a rival in Webb.” While I don’t expect a rivalry or feud to break out any time soon, and I don’t think that Webb has the same resume that Nolan does yet, I understand the Tweeter’s excitement in seeing a filmmaker hit the mark in such a huge fashion.

Enough with the words. See for yourself at Screen Junkies tonight at midnight PST when this trailer goes live online.

Sony’s teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man has leaked in advance of Comic-Con. Much like comic book and movie lovers probably did upon viewing the trailer.

Overall, it looks like a somewhat darker look at the webslinger. Here, Andrew Garfield‘s Peter is portrayed as more of a sensitive loner than Tobey Maguire‘s total nuuurd take on the character. It’s a little light on the action but we are privy to a bridge shot where something (most likely the Lizard) is throwing cars into the air with ease as well as a Spidey POV shot as he swings from Manhattan rooftops which looks like a really cool video game intro. Let’s hope those effects aren’t slated to appear in the final film.

I’ve been curious to find out how different The Amazing Spider-Man will be from the previous films, and today I think I got my answer in the form of these new stills from the film. While yesterday’s glimpse at Sony‘s new take on the arachnid showed off the costume, the web shooters, and Emma Stone looking pretty hot, there was one aspect of the film that was avoided. Namely, Spider-Man being kind of a jerk.

In these pics we see him steal food from the elderly, dress like Hollow Man, and dunk on a special needs classmate. Unless Sony chose to adapt the Spider-Man Meme. In which case, I’m in total support. (EW)

“Let’s do everything on computers” has been the motto of action directors for the past too many years. You know, I pay good money to see dudes driving their cars into helicopters, and damn it, I wanna know they junked perfectly good, real life vehicles for my $38 IMAX 3D ticket. Looks like the Spider Senses of director Marc Webb and I are on the same page.

Above are new set photos from The Amazing Spider-Man. They show either Andrew Garfield or his spider-double swinging through the refreshing NYC air with the help of Hollywood wire magic. Unlike many of the past Spider-Man set photos, these actually look pretty cool. With elegant moves like these, who needs Black Swan or the frigid White Swan? By the way Black Swan could totally be a Spider-Man villain. Not a good one, but maybe one your little sister would have bought the action figure of.

The Amazing Spider-Man actually, not computerly, swings into theaters July 3, 2012. (Daily Mail)

Fans are salivating at the prospect of The Amazing Spider-Man, which promises the same cast of characters we know from the first 3 Spider-Man movies, but with all-new actors saying the words. But it’s not just fans who are excited about The Amazing Spider-Man – it’s the cast members as well. Just check out what Irrfan Khan has to say about his part:

“The role got me some good reviews there and I think the industry there is aware of my work. Marc Webber [sic] had seen me and wanted to work with me and he approached me for this role. I play one of the villains in the movie. It is a pivotal role.”

Oh, well. The actor playing the part says it’s a “pivotal role.” I wouldn’t be surprised if we found out he’s actually playing Spider-Man. (via ComingSoon.net)

There’s nothing weirder than a crazy ballerina who lezes out and thinks she’s turning into an evil bird, so writing a straight up sci-fi movie should be a cakewalk for screenwriter Mark Heyman (Black Swan). He’ll be teaming up with director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer), who’s currently rebooting the franchise of everyone’s favorite Broadway dancing superherostar Spider-Man, on the Fox Searchlight project Age of Rage.

What is Age of Rage? Does it have anything to do with the awesome 4chan meme? Sadly, “no.” Or as Rageguy would say, “ffffuuuuuuu–” It’s a post-apocalyptic world where children rule the planet, because all the adults are dead. I’m guessing the phrase “Mad Max meets Lord of the Flies” was uttered more than once at the Fox Searchlight offices.

Heyman (“hey man!”) began his career working as an executive at Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures, and has transitioned into the far more glamorous world of having to take shitty notes from executives that you know will ruin everything, aka screenwriting. He’s currently penning the futuristic thriller Machine Man for Mandalay. (Hollywood Reporter)

We’ve got new photos for both the new Marc Web Spider-Man and X-Men: First Class. So DC comics can officially eat it today. The Spider-Man shot isn’t an official still. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to tell what it really is. It’s blurry, it’s got a Spider-Man-shaped person running through traffic in downtown LA (filmed to be NYC, of course), and that’s pretty much it. I guess this proves that they are actually filming the movie. Of course, no one doubted that they were filming, but still, it’s nice to be sure. No word on whether the pictured Spidey is Andrew Garfield or a stuntman. One thing’s for certain. It’s not Tobey Maguire. (/Film)

In seemingly more “official” news, we’ve got a somewhat obscured photo of the cast of X-Men: First Class in their costumes. It would appear that Professor X is standing. He could be in a very tall, backless wheelchair, but that’s pretty unlikely. Beyond that, it’s hard to know what to make of their outfits, except for January Jones as Emma Frost. She is looking pretty sharp. (Playlist)

NOTE: MSN has pulled the pic for unspecified reasons, and some rumors are circulating that it’s fake, while others are saying it’s simply “unauthorized.” We will leave this post up until we get some definitive proof, if only because James McAvoy and January Jones are so damn attractive.

Taylor Lautner look-alike and ABC Family regular Chris Zylka has signed up to shove around Peter Parker. Zylka will play Flash Thompson in the upcoming Spider-man reboot, which recently started rolling film. In the comics, Flash had a propensity to give Peter Parker grief while at the same time totally jonesing on Spider-man. Oh Flash, if only you knew they were the same person. Retroactive Spoiler Alert! (ThePlaylist)

Meet Peter Parker’s parents. Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson will play Spidey’s moms and pops in Sony’s reboot. Nicholson is best known for her role on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and Scott is best known as always playing a struggling writer. Parker’s deceased parents are seldomly seen in the comic and have never been brought to the screen before. It’ unknown whether they will appear in flashback or prologue or a scene where Spider-Man goes to Robot Heaven with Optimus Prime.

Also joining the cast is a new villian played by Irfan Khan. His character is Van Atter, and it’s unknown if he’ll be super-powered or just a dick. Speculation is he will play a scientist along with Rhys Ifans’s Lizard. Not all Indians have to be doctors, you guys. Not cool. Not cool. (THR)

It looks like Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man isn’t quite the pimp we expected him to be. The Wrap reports that Mary Jane Watson will not appear in the Sony’s franchise reboot. Red-headed Watson appeared in the three previous films, but didn’t factor into the life of Peter Parker until later in the comics. They’ve decided to stay closer to that classic comic storyline with Spidey’ high school honey Gwen Stacy being his one and only.

As previously reported, Emma Stone will play Gwen Stacy, but now there’s new news that when Sony cast her, they didn’t know who she would play. They just knew that they wanted to exploit our collective geek crush by getting her. After casting, it was decided the red-headed Stone would play the blonde Stacy. Shortly after, an office production assistant was sent out to pick up a box of L’Oreal Superior Preference Dream Blonde.

Sony and Marc Webb have just reminded Sally Field that she’s not a spring chicken anymore in the nicest way possible. The Oscar-winner is in talks to join the Spider-Man reboot that is ramping up for a December start. It’s reported that she will play Martin Sheen wifey and Peter Parker mother-figure Aunt May. But what if this is a big misdirect?

Could it be that Spidey is teaming up with the Flying Nun this time around to take down the threat of the Lizard? Or perhaps, she’ll be the baddie. Look at the way she flies around with that glider wimple. That’s Oscorp tech if I’ve ever seen it. (THR)

If all goes as planned for the folks behind the upcoming Spider Man reboot, we’ll soon see Martin Sheen shot to death at the hands of an anonymous burglar. If we’re lucky, he might even utter a few blood-choked words of deathbed wisdom. Sheen is in the final round of talks to play Uncle Ben, Peter Parker’s former father figure-turned-corpse whose death prompts Parker to walk the streets at night in red latex. As a superhero, of course, not a whore.

Sheen will star alongside Andrew Garfield as Parker, Rhys Ifans as the film’s villain, the Lizard, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Parker’s latest damsel in distress. Marc Webb is set to direct the reboot, with production currently slated to begin in December.

J.K. Simmons owned the role of J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spidey films, but won't be returning for the high school-based reboot. Which means Hollywood's silverhairs are all up for the part. It's reported that a dozen or so actors are being discussed for the part (which will inevitably go to Liam Neeson, everything goes to Liam Neeson), including "Mad Men's" John Slattery and every cowboy movie ever's Sam Elliott. Hopefully the search will continue because I can't see either of these guys in the role. Slattery's too pretty and Sam Elliott's moustache (though awesome) is just too much for this film to handle. Personally, I'd like to see Mel Gibson in the role. He's looking to trick us into liking him again and dude is seriously good at yelling. Like Olympics good at it. Until next time true believers, when we'll figure out who the hell is going to play Robbie. Stay near a phone guy who played Marcus on "Alias." (What's Playing)

The studio is currently casting for miniature versions of Spider-man and The Lizard for their Spider-man reboot, which recently added Rhys Ifans as adult Lizard. Moviehole has the specs: Sony wants a dark-haired Caucasian boy to play actor Peter Parker at age 4 to 6 years old . Ideally, the boy should look a little like Andrew Garfield. In addition, the studio's on the hunt for an actor to play Billy Connors, the son of Dr. Curt Connor. Applicants need be between 8 and 11 years old. Don't flip your sh*t, I'm sure the kiddies won't be a huge part of the storyline. They'll most likely be featured in minimal flashbacks. I seem to remember that comic issue when Peter egged Billy's house on Halloween and Curt took the belt to his son for fraternizing with lowlifes. Yeah, I definitely read that in a comic and didn't manifest it subconciously to block out a traumatic childhood event.

Alright, she's also got a smile that could melt cold hearts. I hope you're happy. Now I'm emoting.

Little. Detail about every decision made and every actress cast aside. So let's get the hell on with it then. I'M PUMPED! The first batch of frontrunners to possibly share an on-screen kiss with Spider-man are Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Emma Roberts, Ophelia Lovibond, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Lily Collins. Haven't heard of half of them? Yeah, well you hadn't heard of Andrew Garfield either but he's Spider-man now, isn't he? My vote is for Lily Collins simply because she's the spawn of Phil Collins. Maybe she can get her dad to write an original song for the film. Eeeeeeeeeee!!! (Vulture)
