New Details & Trailer on 'The Amazing Spider-Man' video game!

A couple of days ago Marvel had revealed the first official trailer, details and artwork for The Amazing Spider-Man video game, a tie-in which will serve as an epilogue occurring after the events of the movie. The game will also see the return of free-roaming web-slinging as well as improvements to the navigation and combat systems in a storyline which will see the hero, "protecting Manhattan from a variety of criminals." Beenox are developing the game which features an original narrative from Spartacus: Gods of the Arena writer Seamus Kevin Fahey. Also mentioned is the game's new "Web Rush Mechanic" which will allow players to pull off never before seen moves in battles which apparently take place above AND below the streets of Manhattan. Below is the VGA teaser trailer, official concept art and the updated website design.









The full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man will air during Spike TV's Video Game Awards on Saturday, December 10 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. Click HERE to visit the official website.

Drake Bell Says ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN Animated Series Is "True To The Comics"

"It’s awesome. The animation is unbelievable. It’s 2-D but it’s the coolest 2-D animation you’ve ever seen," the actor told MTV News while discussing his role as Peter Parker in the 2012 animated series, Ultimate Spider-Man. "It's going to be really true [to the comics]," he revealed. "There’s tons of different [versions of Spider-Man]. He’s in high school. He doesn’t have, the webs don’t come out of his arms. He’s a science nerd, so he figured out how to make sticky web substance and they’re called web shooters. So it’s more like the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' comic book than the Tobey Maguire [movie] or the new 'Amazing Spider-Man' or anything like that." Huh, guess no one told him that Andrew Garfield's live action take on the iconic Marvel character WILL include web shooters!

Regardless, Drake then went on say that while he's enjoyed his time voicing the animated version of Spider-Man, his role in comedy Superhero Movie gave him a taste of what it would be like to play a superhero on the big screen in live action. "I love comic books. I love superheroes. I did ‘Superhero Movie’ years ago... it’s fun. I would love to do that again in a serious role that was all slap stick comedy." Would you like to see the actor take on a "serious" superhero role? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Kirsten Dunst And Tobey Maguire Wanted Cameos In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Reboot

The quirky beauty says that both she and Tobey had hoped to make a cameo in Sony's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise but the top Execs at Sony were having none of it.

“I wanted to do a cameo,” explains Kirsten.

“I had the idea of Tobey and I as extras and we’d just walk by in the background but it’s not in there. I love Andrew Garfield and I think Emma Stone (who plays love interest Gwen Stacey) is cute too. I think that they’re going to be really cute in the movie for sure. They look like they have good chemistry.”

Romantic chemistry is a key focal point of the Spider-Man franchise in drawing in audience members that aren't necessarily fans of the old web-head. While a lot of things can be said about the original movie, from praise to criticism, Tobey and Kirsten definitely had chemistry. Hopefully Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will bring their real life romantic chemistry to the big screen and deliver the best Spider-Man movie yet.

News on "The Amazing Spider-Man" Video Game!

Beenox, the company that helped Spider-Man get back into the gaming industry with last year's hit "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" and this year's "Spider-Man: Edge of Time", is now in development on the Spider-Man movie reboot video game "The Amazing Spider-Man". If you want to check out the trailer that was shown at the New York Comic Con '11, then click here. Here's a little bit (but not much) of info from the panel.

Amazing Spider-Man is being made by Beenox, the studio behind the two most recent Spider-Man games, but this new game been in development by a dedicated team who have been working on it for over a year, according to Gerard Lehinay, the studio's creative director. Lehiany introduced the game at a Marvel video games panel at today's Con, saying that the creators wanted to make New York City an integral part of Spider-Man games again. "We brought back the city into Spider-Man games," he said. "For us it is important to be able to web-swing in the city. So that's one of the major things that we've been working on."

The game will be out alongside Marvel's re-boot Spider-Man movie this summer, but it will have its own story. It will also have a currently-secret "new gameplay feature" that, Lehiany teased, is designed "for you to feel like Spider-Man." Forgive me if I misunderstood his accent (he's French-Canadian), but I believe he said "It's an acrobatic tool in the game."


If you haven't watched the video yet, you should, then come back here. At the end when it shown the big robot (bigger than Central Park pretty much) caught my attention, but it also confuses me too. What do you think it might be, or who you think created it? I think it might be Alistaire Smythe, but that's just my perspective. I just wonder how will this factor in the story for the game, and will it make sense for it to be there in the first place; given the movie's new sense of realism, and darker tone.

Well like always, please comment below and let me know what you think! Thanks!

Out promoting his recent film, The Way, the folks from Examiner caught up with actor Martin Sheen, 'Uncle Ben' of Sony and Marc Webb's reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. Vapidly praising 'Peter Parker' star, Andrew Garfield, read on below.

“It was a wonderful company. I adore Sally Field,” he said.
“I hadn’t worked with her in years and it was a chance to do it,” he said.


“The lad that played Spider-Man/Peter Parker had just come off a huge success with Social Network,” Sheen said. “He could not have been more welcoming or solicitous or kind and courteous. I was just really taken with him. This kid is going to be a big star.”


The Amazing Spider-Man releases in 3D next year on July 3rd. The movie is directed by Marc Webb, and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Rhys Ifans.

Rest In Peace Cliff Robertson; Spider-Man 'Uncle Ben' Actor Passes Away

In 2002, Spider-Man revitalized the comic book movie into the standing in pop culture it is today. One of the best aspects of this film was the brief but brilliant performance by Academy Award winner Cliff Robertson. By saying the famous phrase, "With great power comes great responsibility," Robertson won over a whole new generation of fans as Peter Parker's wise uncle, Ben Parker. He reprised this role in Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 (his final film appearance).



Robertson had other claims from Oscar-winning performance in Charly as the title character, a mentally-handicapped man who, with brain-boosting medication, was able to overcome his problems with tragic results. He was also in PT 109 as John F. Kennedy (hand-picked by the man himself and was highly praised in the role). On the small screen, Robertson made a guest appearance on "The Twilight Zone" in an episode where he played a ventriloquist with a dummy that is more than meets the eye. He also was a guest-villain on "Batman" as the criminal cowboy Shame (parody of Shane) and fought against the Dynamic Duo.

Details on Mr. Robertson's death will be posted as soon as possible.

Andrew Garfield "Studied Spiders" For His Role in The Amazing Spider-Man!

Thanks to Geoff Boucher of Hero Complex, we have a revealing interview with Andrew Garfield, where he talks more about his "spidery" influences in his portrayal of the iconic Marvel character and how this eventually altered his sure to be unique take on Peter Parker. Be sure to click on the link below to head on over to the site to read the interview in full, where you'll also find out more about his thoughts on working with actress Emma Stone.

On What He Felt He Had To Avoid While Preparing For The Role:
There’s so much to do with it, I didn’t really think about avoiding anything. I just didn’t come at it that way. I wanted him to have fun. I wanted it to feel like Peter Parker could have some fun and wasn’t just trying to save the world. He could have fun even after the responsibility has been thrust upon him and he has to save the city. I really wanted to do something physical that was genuine and authentic and inspired by the different artists over the years. His physicality is something which I’ve been obsessed by and I’ve loved.


On How Actual Spiders Ended Up Influencing And Effecting His Performance:
What would having spider DNA constituting a percentage of your blood — what would that do? So I studied spiders, I studied their movements and how they operate in the world and I tried to incorporate as much of that as I could. He’s a boy/spider in terms of how he moves, and not just in the suit. It also shapes the way he interacts with people. A spider is so sensitive; their skin is sensitive to everything. That’s the thing with the spider sense and the way he takes in everything. Imagine all of your skin was as sensitive as a spider, the slightest gust of wind would feel like a tornado going by. You’d always be rushing, that rush. What does that do to you? The idea of how he adjusts to that. And I looked at the idea of having more legs, more arms, and the spacial awareness. A spider moves up, down, side-to-side, all around. He’s not linear and with the knowledge of that spatial awareness and the fact that he can be here and then over there incredibly fast. The stillness of a spider and the lightness I found all of that very interesting to explore as well.


On How He Feels About The Extra Recognition Which Will Come From This Role:
I don’t like to think about it. It terrifies me. I don’t want that, actually. I just saw that I was given an opportunity to play a part that I’ve been wanting to play since I was a 2-year-old. I don’t see it any other way. I don’t want the rest of it. The visibility thing — the being a more visible actor or just a more visible person in the world — was the one thing that deterred me. That was absolutely the one thing I questioned. Do I want to do this? I thought about it for a month, constantly. I knew there would be a change in my life to an extent. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I stay part of the world. I want to be able to walk around in this world. I love being alive and I love being a person and I love being able to meet people, meet strangers without them having any preconceived notion of who I am. I love meeting people. I love being me. I don’t want to be anyone else. Of course this comes with a certain life change but I’m going to do everything in my power to hold on to what’s important, which is I am a guy who does a job for a living that comes with some periphery stuff that I’m not interested in. I did take the role, I took it on, and i don’t regret it. It’s meant something to me for all of my life. But I’m going to do my best to remain me.

Kelsey Chow is Sally Avril in "The Amazing Spider-Man"!

The actress who plays Mikayla Mikula in Disney XD’s hit series “Pair of Kings” reveals that she will be playing Sally Avril.

Do you have any other upcoming projects between school and work?

Kelsey Chow: I do. I have a very small, little thing in the next ‘Spider-Man’ movie.


That’s amazing.

Kelsey Chow: Thank you so much. I found out last minute and I took off work for a day and went on set and it was surreal. It was crazy.


Who do you work with in the film?

Kelsey Chow: I’m a character school. I play the role of Sally Avril.


I bet being on the set was great.

Kelsey Chow: Absolutely. Just being on the set was great, and I’m very excited to be in the movie and it was interesting to see Andrew Garfield work. It’s such a huge role and it’s a lot to take on, and I think he’s really has a vision with it as well Mark Webb. I think it’s going to be a great movie.

Well, what do you think? I love how they're putting in more characters from the comics, than they did with the Raimi series, which I still think it holds up pretty well. Let's hope this movie serves justice to the source material!

Like always, please let me know what you think in the usual place below! Thanks!

More info on Sally Avril from the comics:
Sally Avril was part of a group of kids in Queens, New York, consisting of Liz Allan, Tiny McKeever, Seymour O'Reilly, Jason Ionello and Peter Parker who were friends since Elementary School. But by the time they arrived at Midtown High School, Peter had drifted apart and the clique was taken over by new student Flash Thompson. From that point, Sally wanted nothing to do with Peter, shooting him down when he asks for a date in favor of "dream boats like Flash Thompson" and coaxing Liz away from Peter rather than offer sympathy after the death of his Uncle Ben. - spiderfan.org

Behind The Voices on "Spider-Man: Edge of Time"!

What's been going on with the upcoming Spider-Man video game "Edge of Time"? Well I found out that three actors were announced to portray the voices of Mary Jane, Black Cat, and a brand-new villain Walker Sloan. You'll be surprised to know whose playing all three (except for the one voicing Black Cat, to me I barely know where she's from, but I don't know, you all might recognize her from somewhere). Laura "Supergirl" Vandervoort (Mary Jane), Katee Sackhoff (Black Cat), and Val "Batman" Kilmer (Walker Sloan). Watch their video interviews below for more info!







It's odd that there are two actors who previously played comic book superheroes in the past, both DC characters. I have no clue who Katee is, and I am too busy to look anything up of her. So if you like you can let me know!

Spider-Man: Edge of Time hits game stores on October 4th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS. For more info, visit the official site!

'Spider-Man' Producer Laura Ziskin Dies at 61

"Spider-Man" producer Laura Ziskin died Sunday evening. She was 61 and had been battling breast cancer for seven years.

Ziskin was perhaps best known for her work on the "Spider-Man" franchise, which brought in over $1.5 billion worldwide, making her one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood.

To read more about Laura Ziskin, click here to read the rest of this article.

So...wow...I feel a bit more depressed about this than any other actor, producer, and director that passed away in the past. Not that I didn't care about them, it's just I didn't know them too well. I didn't knew Laura Ziskin too well either, but I guess it's because I grew up watching these movies, and watched the behind the scenes over and over again when I got bored. And all those press conferences, and videos from Comic-Con having all the cast, director, and producers together. Brings back a lot of memories. We'll never forget you Laura, may you Rest In Piece.

More from Emma Stone on Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man & How She Prepped for Her Role!

MTV caught up with Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard while they were promoting their new movie The Help to get their thoughts on Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Stone currently just finished work on The Amazing Spider-Man as Gwen Stacy, and Howard portrayed Stacy in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.



Stone: "He looks like Spider-Man, ya know? It's pretty exciting."

Howard: "I saw Andrew in a leaked photo, and he looked really good."


Emma Stone also let's us know how she prepared for the role of Gwen Stacy.

With so much buzz about the new Spider-Man film, it seems that Stone will be just as surprised as fans to see the flick.


"I've seen nothing, I promise. I've seen small action sequences for the 3-D, and it looked terrible," she joked. "I really haven't seen [anything]."

So what did Stone do to research the role of Gwen — besides leaning on Howard for her first-hand account, of course.

"I read a pretty comprehensive Death of the Stacys book ... and it's a really amazing book to learn the story of Captain Stacy and Gwen Stacy," she said. "And I've read a various amount of comics."

Spider-Man: Edge of Time Hits This Fall!

Here's a press release on the new Spidey video game titled "Spider-Man: The Edge of Time", which was previewed yesterday at WonderCon 2011. Check out the excerpt below:

Activision and Marvel today announced "Spider-Man: Edge of Time," where Spider-Man faces one of his greatest challenges ever--saving Spider-Man. Developed by Activision-owned studio Beenox, "Spider-Man: Edge of Time" challenges the player to take on the roles of both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to correct a timestream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker.

"The first Spider-Man entry by Beenox, 'Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions,' was touted as one of the wall-crawler’s best games to date from both critics and fans," said Vicharin Vadakan, Director, Global Brand Management for Activision. "Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a fast-paced and high-octane adventure to fans in 'Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.'"

"At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them," said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox. "We want to create a totally distinct experience in 'Spider-Man: Edge of Time' by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance."

"Spider-Man: Edge of Time" is a focused, action-packed adventure set in two connected and evolving timelines, from the contemporary times of the Amazing Spider-Man to the corrupted future world of Spider-Man 2099, against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of the comic book series SPIDER-MAN 2099). The game features all-new "cause-and-effect" gameplay, where players will see how the immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man. "Spider-Man: Edge of Time" is slated for release this fall.


More on Marvel.com!

Isn't this really cool? I always wanted a game that revolves around the 2099 storyline in some way. Now I'm only hoping that Vulture 2099 makes an appearance. Let me know what you think at the comments section below!

J.K. Simmons to Reprise His Role as J. Jonah Jameson!

...For the "Ultimate Spider-Man" TV series. Although it would be cool to see him return in the new reboot 'Spider-Man' franchise, but until that happens we will be having him star as the good ol' Spidey hater J. Jonah Jameson for the upcoming "Ultimate Spider-Man" series coming out late 2012. Take a read below on what he had to say...

On Rumors That JJJ Will Not Feature In The Amazing Spider-Man:
That's what I heard recently, too; they just decided not to have the character be in the movie. Obviously it's going to be a very different take on it. I hope it does - I'm not sure what I hope. (Laughs) I just know that the movies that Sam made, especially the first two... strangely he was sort of less on his own in the third film and it kinda felt like there were a lot of cooks stirring the pot in that third film.

On Voicing J. Jonah Jameson In Ultimate Spider-Man Animated Series:
Yeah, I just started doing that. I don't know when the show's gonna be out, but yeah, J.J.J. lives on in my career at least (Laughs) for a while with the new cartoon show, yeah.


Also, if you haven't catched this yet, here's another interview of J.K. Simmons on why he's disappointed about the 'Spider-Man' reboot.

Are you upset that Spider-Man is being rebooted?

There were a lot of levels on which I was disappointed by that, not the least of which was financial because, you know, a sequel is one of the few times that a journeyman like me gets to make a big fat paycheck.

I did read that you bought a new house.

Yes, indeed. Which I'm now paying for with commercials instead of Spider-Man 4.


Special thanks to Josh Wilding fro the latest scoops!

Martin Sheen Talks About 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

TotalFilm caught up with Martin Sheen, who is starring in Marc Webb's upcoming movie 'The Amazing Spider-Man', in their latest issue of their magazine, and they've been kind enough to give us a preview of their interview with him where he goes on to talk about his thoughts on Andrew Garfield, and how much he really knew about Spider-Man before he signed on.

On how familiar he was beforehand with the Spider-Man comics:

"To be honest with you, I hadn't any clue about Spider-Man."

"I was on a plane one time, a couple of years ago, and the guy next to me was watching the film [Spider-Man 2] and I was just looking at it, without the earphones thinking, 'I don't have a clue.'

"I'd never read the comic books. But I adore Tobey Maguire and he was up against this guy who had these chains coming out of his back [Dr Octopus].

"I didn't know who Uncle Ben was, though Cliff Robertson played the part. I knew that."

And his thoughts on Andrew Garfield:

"He's quite the marvel, a very fine actor. He's a lovely guy, very disciplined, very focused.

"He called me up and said, 'This is Andrew Garfield' and I said, 'Who?' and he said, 'Uh, we're in the movie together...' and I said, 'Yeah, what part do you play?' and he said, 'Uh, I play your nephew!' I liked him instantly.

"We had a wonderful lunch and laughed and joked and he said, "Just feel free to bring whatever you like" and I said, "absolutely." The guy who's directing takes a beating because his last name is Webb! But he's lovely."


And lastly, they asked him how Garfield was managing with the physical aspect of filming and what he's like on screen:

"He's very athletic, he's in great shape. He plays basketball and he works out every day. He's fit. Very wiry, thin, tall, very physically focused.

"He works in a very organic way - he loves accidents, when something happens in a scene that causes him to do something else. I went through a couple of very emotional scenes and he was right there, focused.
And he was the same off camera. He didn't slack off. No, sir! He was equally emotional off camera. Very impressive. He's going to be a huge star."


The full interview with Martin Sheen is available in this months issue of TotalFilm which will be out March 17th.

Save 'The Spectacular Spider-Man' Animated TV Series!

Now that's just messed up, ain't it? We have no real confirmation of 'The Spectacular Spider-Man' cancelation, and they pull this under our noses. Maybe it's not too late to save the show?

Beenox takes over the Spider-Man games!

Yeah, yeah, I'm late on reporting this, but just incase some of you haven't catch it, here's the scoop on the future for "Spider-Man" video games at Activision:

The future of the Spider-Man video game franchise rests in hands of developer Beenox.

The studio has been named "lead developer" on upcoming Spider-Man titles, Activsion said today. Beenox, based in Quebec City, Canada, developed last year's surprisingly good Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

"Beenox's creative vision reinvigorated the Spider-Man gaming experience among critics and fans in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions," said Patrick Kelly, Senior Vice President, Activision Studios.

"We can't wait to see where this talented studio will take this franchise in the future."

The publisher has struck out with many of its past Spidey titles. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows (2008), Spider-Man: Friend or Foe (2007), and Spider-Man 3 (2007) all received below-average press scores.

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick even publically expressed his disappointment in an interview from last January saying, "Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years. They are bad games."

Andrew Garfield on the Stunts in "Spider-Man" PLUS On-Set Photos of Andy as Peter Parker!

Here's an excerpt I found while browsing through The Los Angeles Times. It's Andrew Garfield, the star of the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, talks more about his role in the movie, and the stunts he had to pursue. Take a read below:

I imagine it won't be hard to find an audience for your next movie...the Spider-Man reboot.

(Laughs) What if no one sees it? It'd be hilarious. Maybe there'll be boycotters. My self-sabotaging makes me want to head the boycott.

But this is the role you've played since you were a child.

Yes. On Halloween. Bedtimes. Tuesdays. When I was auditioning, my parents sent me a photo of me as a kid in the Spider-Man costume. I gave it to my agent, and my agent slipped it to the studio as they were making their decision.

What skinny kid wouldn't love that character? I can't overstate enough when you start to actually identify what's happened and you go, "Yeah, I did dream of being Spider-Man when I was a kid." I'm trying not to lose my mind about it. But it's not superficial to me. It's not frothy or frivolous.


That sense of responsibility nicely dovetails into the character, doesn't it?

Yes, the overriding theme of the comic is: With great power comes great responsibility. And, yes, I feel a huge sense of pressure and responsibility.

But...um...hopefully fun too, right?

(Laughs) We're two weeks in. The first week was full of stunts, and I've never felt happier in my whole life. I'm all bruised and scratched up, and it feels really good. It's just me throwing myself up against walls, which is incredibly fun and painful and testing my manhood. It's a childhood fantasy I'm living out.

Pretty cool, huh? He does have the look of Peter. But what do you think? Please let me know what you think in the usual place below! Thanks! =)
