Sinister Six

Sony Pictures’ long-term plans for its blockbuster Spider-Man franchise have been getting bigger with each week that brings us a new image, trailer, or poster for their upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last week alone we were treated to a new banner poster and first trailer that revealed Marvel Comics’ classic arachnid-powered superhero (Andrew Garfield) would be taking on at least three new villains in Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and most unexpectedly Spidey’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) suiting up as either the Green Goblin or a Goblin-like baddie of some variation. Early reports indicated that the events of Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be setting up the first appearance of the super-villain collective the Sinister Six in a future sequel.

Sony Pictures has been trying to keep The Amazing Spider-Man 2 footage in the dark from the general public and anything regarding the forthcoming sequels a huge secret. Sure enough there have been a couple of teases and hints that indicate that Spider-Man will face his greatest challenge: the Sinister Six. We already know that Jamie Foxx will play Electro and Paul Giamatti is the Rhino, with Chris Cooper and Dane Dehaan signed on to play Norman and Harry Osborn, respectively. As we can expect to see a condensed version of the footage that was seen at Comic-Con in the near future, more production photos from the film have been released, and one of them reveals – or teases – a nice surprise.

ComingSoon posted the photos today, featuring images from the film, as well as those from behind the scenes. Check out the photos here below.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 4’ Could Be More Than Just About Spider-Man

It’s not entirely surprising that the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con panel for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was just about that and not the forthcoming sequels that Sony had announcement a few months back. It is really hard to tell what the studio has planned for the iconic hero, but considering that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opens in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in 2018, there is more than enough time to plan and release bits of news. Releasing a trilogy has becoming more commonplace, but going forth with a quadrilogy is a rarity. Keeping the story fresh and the character interesting throughout four films is even more of a daunting task.

However, director Marc Webb feels up to the challenge. The director made a few comments at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend to talk about the sequels and how he intends to keep audiences interested in the Webslinger.

SDCC 2013: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 panel banner

What would the 2013 version of San Diego Comic-Con be without an appearance by the Amazing Spider-Man, and an appearance by Spidey is just what we got Friday at the convention center. Director Marc Webb was on the panel to show off a bit of footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is still in production. Along for the ride with Webb was his leading actor, Andrew Garfield, who came out dressed in full Spider-Man gear. Dean DeHaan who plays Harry Osborne was also there, as well as producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

Emma Stone had a brief video message that was interrupted by Electro. Then, in a surprise moment, Jaime Foxx came out on stage to some huge applause. Garfield went on to play the beginning of the panel in character as Spider-Man, getting asked a bunch of hero-related questions. A few minutes in, Spider-Man got called away on urgent business, leaving room for Garfield’s proper entrance.

SDCC 2013: EW’s The Visionaries Panel With Alfonso Cuaron, Marc Webb & Edgar Wright

SDCC 2013: Entertainment Weekly Visionaries panel

Day one of San Diego Comic-Con was host to a meeting of three of the best directors working today, as Entertainment Weekly brought fans a discussion of all things movies with their “Visionaries” panel. On hand to discuss their work was Edgar Wright (The World’s End, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World), Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and Marc Webb (Amazing Spider-Man).

The panel was a chance to hear the directors talk about the process of their current films. Cuaron spoke at length about the issues they had simulating the zero G conditions needed to film Gravity, including creating a special room that was just an empty box that a camera would move around in. He also talked about how Gravity stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock would try to imitate the director’s Mexican accent (he said though that they sounded more Cuban than Mexican). Cuaron explained how Steven Spielberg’s Duel was a big influence on Gravity.

Webb also spoke of similar issues that went into the filming of the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb talked about using Electro as a villain not just because of his powers, but also because it forces Spider-Man to think of creative ways to defeat him. Webb was also excited to show off the visuals of Electro, which is something that drove him to use him as the villain. Webb then spoke to how the documentary Fog of War influenced Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Sarah Gadon Joins The Cast Of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’; Is She Shailene Woodley’s Replacement?

Sarah Gadon

Ever since Sony announced that they were releasing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in the coming years, Shailene Woodley‘s role as Mary Jane was thrown into the rumor mill. In a matter of hours Woodley’s involvement went from being cut out of two and introduce her in 3, to her being cut out from the film entirely. Part of this reason is because Woodley is on contract to appear in an adaptation of the Divergent novel series, which is more than just one book, which also conflicts with her schedule.

It has been made clear that Mary Jane would not be a vital part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to begin with, and that her biggest role would be in the sequel. Not too long after director Marc Webb made his announcement to streamline the Mary Jane character to focus on Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy’s relationship, EW Canada reports that Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Mind, Cosmopolis) has reportedly signed on to appear in the film, which could possibly mean that Woodley’s replacement has been found.

Hot off the news that Sony has announced the release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 comes word that The Spectacular Now star Shailene Woodley, who was set to make a brief appearance as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and have an expanded role in the third film, will not be appearing in the sequel after all.

It’s been confirmed that the Mary Jane role has been cut from the second film entirely, and that her character will be introduced in the third film. Not only that, but it looks like Woodley might not be there to play the part.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Marc Webb‘s is well into production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Sony must like what they are seeing because they have announced release dates for The Amazing Spider Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4. This also shows the amount of confidence the studio has in this highly anticipated sequel. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters May 2, 2014, which will be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opening on June 10, 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 opening on May 4, 2018.

Announcing these release dates only adds to the rumor that the studio wants to create a Spider-Man Cinematic Universe, and that each film will build up to the Sinister Six. We’ve already seen some photos of Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino. Then there is the rumor that Colm Feore could be the Vulture. The sequel also has Chris Cooper playing Norman Osborne, who could end up being the Green Goblin. Finally there’s Dane Dehaan who plays Harry Osborne, who could also end up following in his father’s footsteps.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Marc Webb, the director of next year’s web-slingin’ sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has done a stand-out job keeping us posted on the production of the film via Twitter. Recently we’ve seen the first photos of Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro. Inevitably we would soon get a glimpse of Paul Giamatti as the second half of the movie’s super-powered baddie tag team, the Rhino.

True to form, Webb has now granted us the first photo of Giamatti in character and in action as the Rhino. You can check it out here below.
