Is it fair to say that The Amazing Spider-Man is the least anticipated of this year’s superhero movies? Is it the thought of sitting through the origin story AGAIN, so soon after the last version, that’s putting us off? Or is it that it’s up against the likes of Whedon’s The Avengers and Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises which is dulling the impact of the webslinger? It maybe neither, it could be both. What I do know is that Sony is cranking up the hype machine in readiness for release and we are getting a lot of new stuff to pore over. Let’s get to it. Continue reading

I haven’t exactly been quiet about my lack of excitement for The Amazing Spider-Man. The trailer was alright, and the subsequent marketing has been lacklustre. Considering this film is going up against The Avengers, Prometheus, and The Dark Knight Rises in a packed summer window, it really needs to step up its game. Anyway, some new pics have been released. Let’s see if they tickle the parts they need to reach. Continue reading

Director Marc Webb clearly feels some reshoots are in order. Shall we have a look?

There he is – Peter Parker/Andrew Garfield… Continue reading
