One of my more pleasant movie surprises last year was “The Amazing Spider-Man.” While I hated on it mercilessly for being a remake far too early, when I stopped griping and sat down to watch it, I thought the only thing wrong with it was that it hadn’t come soon enough. Sarcastic Spider-Man = here’s more of my money. Take it please.
About the only thing I didn’t like with the movie was the costume, which was a little too dark. Problem solved with the costume for the sequel, which looks like it leaped straight from the comics. More

J. Jonah Jameson, J.K. Simmons, Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man
JK. Simmons (58) – This birthday wish is simple.
Whatever direction Marc Webb wants to take “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ that he finds a way to work the one “too perfect, don’t change a thing!” aspect of the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy into it and bring your awesome J. Jonah Jameson into this new Spidey movie-verse.

”The Amazing Spider-Man” Director Marc Webb just announced on Twitter that Dane DeHaan (“Lincoln,” “Lawless”) has been selected to play Harry Osborn in “The Amazing Spider-Man” sequel.

Dane DeHaan is the new Harry Osborn for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
DeHaan played the teen corrupted by his power in “Chronicle,” so this shouldn’t be a stretch to see him as the neglected son of Norman Osborn, who has yet to be cast in Webb’s Spider-verse. He looks like he could play spoiled rich kid pretty easily, right?
Harry was such a major character in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy so I’m surprised Webb felt the need to go back to the Osborn clan, especially since Spider-Man has a great rogue gallery — second only to Batman — and there’s more that haven’t gotten their cinematic spotlight just like he did with The Lizard in his first film.
Hopefully Webb doesn’t rush through Harry and Peter Parker’s friendship to get them fighting anytime soon. Besides, Jamie Foxx is already signed on as Electro so we don’t necessarily need another villain anyway, right?

Here’s the first look at the “Movie 43″ poster with the tagline of “Comedy Exposed: The Biggest Cast Ever Assembled for the Most Outrageous Comedy.” If nothing else, you’ve gotta admire the marketing team for not shying away from the most over-the-top slogan they could come up with and then backing it up with showing off the cast.
Not too many details have been released about it yet, but it’s a comedy so it doesn’t have to win Best Screenplay so long as it has me laughing more than I’m wondering how much longer I have to endure it. All that is known is that it’s a film with a bunch of stories. Make of that what you will. More

“The Amazing Spider-Man” – This was one summer film few really demanded as it hadn’t been that long since the last “Spider-Man” film series, but this revamp definitely showed the advantage of a fresh look. This was one of the year’s most pleasant surprises and Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Director Marc Webb proved sometimes a quick relaunch for a franchise is a good thing.
This is the only big release of the week, but it’s well worth adding to your home video collection.

Last weekend was The Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong show. Being a Hong Kong based company, it only made sense for Hot Toys to be one of the major vendors on hand showcasing their newest collectible figures.
Since I’m not the jet-setter to go off to Hong Kong just yet, I’ve been eagerly awaiting Hot Toys putting up their pics from the show, which they did and now I’m able to share with all of you. More
