‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Review: Not As Amazing As ‘Spider-Man 2′

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 will be ten years old in June. It's an important movie for fans of the superhero genre -- the first movie in this present generation to be "good", rather than "good, but..." The commitment, pathos, and unabashed joy in Sam Raimi's sequel made it nearly everyone's favorite superhero movie -- until The Dark Knight, or Avengers, or Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Now there's another Spider-Man 2, an "Amazing" one, the second movie in director Marc Webb's reboot for Sony's Columbia Pictures. It is definitely not more amazing than Spider-Man 2. It is resolutely and in every way a sequel to 2012's Amazing Spider-Man, for better and for worse.

Andrew Garfield Performs ‘Spider-Man’ Theme With The Roots On ‘The Tonight Show’ [Video]

Garfield01

If you're like me and the sight of Jimmy Fallon pulling out an acoustic guitar fills you with a vague sense of dread, you may want to look away. Don't worry, though! It turns out okay! See, Andrew Garfield, who stars as the title role of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has been learning how to play guitar, and in a segment on The Tonight Show, Fallon offers one up so that Garfield can make his public debut as a musician.

His song of choice? The rollicking theme from the classic Spider-Man cartoon. And then he's joined by The Roots. It's pretty awesome.

Sometimes good people say dumb things, and in those times it falls to other good people to call them out. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actors Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield seem like good people and a sweet couple -- they've been dating since 2011 -- but in a recent kids' Q&A to promote their upcoming movie, Garfield said a dumb, sexist thing. And co-star Stone coolly challenged him for it. You can watch the video right here.

The 10 Best Marvel Movie Casting Decisions (So Far)

Untitled-2

The news that Paul Rudd will play Hank Pym in the 2015 Ant-Man movie is the latest piece of inspired casting from Marvel Studios. Rudd will bring charm, humor and an appealing eye-twinkle to what may prove to be Marvel's most comedic movie under writer Joe Cornish and writer-director Edgar Wright.

Marvel characters have found tremendous success on the big screen, both in Marvel's own "in-house" movies such as the Avengers line and in those produced by other studios, such as the Wolverine/X-Men films. Bringing an established character to the screen is an unusual challenge because readers have a strong idea of what they want to see, and actors want to bring something new to the role. ComicsAlliance offers its view on the performers who pulled this off best.

The First ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Trailer Debuts [Video]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Following a week of grainy pictures of posters, surprise villain appearances and teaser set photos, Sony and Columbia Pictures have released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  With three villains -- the Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin -- appearing in the film, the trailer had a short amount of time to dedicate to so many adversaries, not to mention the star of the film. But it manages to give time to everyone, while offering at least a hint, if not a really good look, at what each character will look like on screen.

You can check out the full trailer below.

On Andrew Garfield, Stan Lee, And Spider-Man’s Cinematic Sexuality [Opinion]

Garfield lede

A few weeks back, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Garfield -- who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the current Amazing Spider-Man film franchise -- recounted a conversation he had with a producer, in which he wondered out loud why Spider-Man couldn't be gay or bisexual. When this quote was mentioned to Stan Lee over the weekend at Fandomfest in Louisville, Kentucky, the 90-year-old co-creator of Spider-Man made an awkward attempt at a humorous response: "I figure one sex is enough for anybody."
