spider-man sewing

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."

Romantic New ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Movie Poster Features Gwen Stacy

untitled-1-1339693293

We know the action scenes and spider-snarking are pretty on point for The Amazing Spider-Man, the new Marc Webb film based on the Marvel Comics superhero, but what impressed me most about the early footage ComicsAlliance previewed back in February was the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andew Garfield. There's a scene in which a distinctly Romita-esque Gwen Stacy joins Peter Parker for some authentically awkward "will-you-go-out-with-me" exchanges in the halls of their high school. It was utterly natural and extremely cute, and it's nice to see the romance angle played up in a dramatic fi
