Whilst it's not entirely clear if the page is actually run by Sony, this recent post sure is interesting...

Judging from the viral campaign for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, I'm going to go out of my way and say that we will most likely end up with some sort of of Oscorp video teasing a new energy source.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 swings into theaters in 2014!

Dat Electric teasing.

I hope the marketing for this is really good. Despite the fact I am glad they are changing Electros character pretty much completely, I'm still having a little bit of doubts about this movie. For me personally, I hope it gives the first movie of the reboot trilogy a run for its money cause, The Amazing Spider-Man is definitely my favorite Spider-Man movie and in my opinion, the best.

@SuspenseSmith: If you don't want a sympathetic villain, go to a different franchise. Cause most of Spider-Mans villains are sympathetic. Hell, making Electro sympathetic means that he is actually going to be a villain worth seeing and means he's actually going to be written good for once.

aren't all villains "tragic"?

Cool, but this is a fan site.

Don't they start shooting in like a month? I hope they release an official pic of the new costume before we see some shitty low quality paparazzi photos of it from like 300 yards away.

I thought Amazing improved a lot of things, visuals and style definitely. However, the changes and personal interpretation was completely wack. For one, why did they feel the need to make Parker a skater? Freakin idiotic.

Boycott FOX & SONY CBMs for life.

I love TASM but I don't want Electro to be yet another sympathetic villain - it's integral for characters like Lizard, it can work for Doc Ock since he's so badly disfigured and stuff, but Electro for one thing is a crappy character anyway and he has electrical powers, nothing sympathetic or anything. I'd rather he be a genetically engineered enforcer (like he was for Kingpin in the Ultimate series) but working for Norman Osborn instead. He'd be like a henchman, but also a lead villain, working for Normie who'd be in the background. Then Normie would become GG by the end and either kill Gwen when he reveals himself, or kill her in the third film.

@SpidaTrav actually one of the best things a movie can do is subvert your expectations. What's the point in being predictable, the movies should aim to surprise the audience. Having said that, I thought TASM was pretty much how I expected it to be based on the ads. The only thing a bit off was how the 'Untold Story' was over-emphasized in the ads when it was only being set up in the movie.

@ACira: Electro is a crappy character, that's why I'm a big fan of them changing his character for the benefit of the movie. He is up there for worst Spider-Man villain ever. I don't mind him being a sympathetic character and I won't lie, that comes from me prefering sympathetic villains over ones that are pure evil. It makes you see from their point of view. I don't want a Spider-Man movie where he faces a completely uninteresting and boring character. But, I believe that James Vanderbilt, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Marc Webb have made the character a better character and hopefully wrote a movie worth seeing.

Oh God....this reboot is terrible. I gave in and recently just watched the amazing spiderman and i nearly shut it off. Halfway through the movie i decided to keep watching it to see how far it would go in copying the sam Raimi version.

it:s like they took the pacing and development arc of Raimis and made a shittier movie.
Even the villian began to hear voices before he went evil like green goblin did. Uncle Ben died in the exact same way, Parker came up with the idea of the suit and spiderman from wrestling again. Even the conflict between him and flash were the same.

I understand that some things need to be the same like getting bit from a spider, but seriously? You cant have a more original idea for developing the story?

and now this. Clean energy again? Doc Oc in spiderman 2 was all about new energy and it backfired and he turned evil.

CMON

@kakinurmawth: You over analized the reboot and you're also over analyzing something that hasn't even been confirmed. There is nothing about the reboot that's the same other than retelling uncle bens death (nothing about it is the same), retelling the origin and having a green villain that talks to himself (that actually is sticking to the comics in a way). Other than that is just over analyzing.
kakinurmawth - 1/25/2013, 12:02 PM
I guess if they were rebooting Raimis spiderman then this movie makes sense. If the goal was to just redo spiderman entirely it was a half-ass and lazy effort on Sonys part.
Spideyguy94 - 1/25/2013, 12:26 PM
It annoys the shit out of me when people say "they just copied raimi's spider-man" sorry but sam raimi didn't create spider-man, stan lee did. Jeremy Jahns put it best, It's called following the source material from the 60's, not copying a movie that came out 10 years earlier. Was the origin unnecessary? yes, but don't make out like sam raimi created spider-man and it's the be all end all of spider-man, because it's not.
dancingmonkey08 - 1/25/2013, 4:46 PM
So yeah, in relation to the whole sympathetic villain story, I think Electro will be more of a Magneto / Loki type villain rather than Red Skull / Joker villain. You know, that type of villain who starts out being innocent but evolves into an unlikeable prick who has no concern for the innocent people they hurt. I HOPE Electro isnt going to be the new Spidey 2-Doc Ock, where he redeems himself in the end. I dont mind identifying with the villain at the start and feeling sorry for him when he gets [frick]ed over but when he goes to get revenge, I want him to stay bad and unredeemable. We had a sympathetic villain in the Amazing Spider-Man already


And the Amazing Spider-Man 2 has to do one hell of a job to compete with other comic book movies, as many of you have said, the first one did not live up to its name, the Adaequte Spider-Man would have been better. It was great to watch (better than Green Lantern but nowhere near Avengers level) but due to the origin and nothing new being done, it was close to forgettable. In this evergrowing CBM market, Spider-Man needs to be made one of the top characters again. Cmon Webb, time to step up

And have Gwen die in the third one! I want Peter and Gwen to get together at the end of the second one, have some happiness, then let Green Goblin take it all away from them. Have Peter date Mary Jane in the second one so he can stay away from Gwen but have him give into his feelings by the end of the second one. Then Mary Jane becomes a friend to the two of them and is there for Peter in the third one when Gwen dies, setting up their relationship for another trilogy

LOL So much hate... Amazing>Raimi Trilogy.
Were you people born in the 60? Since when does a baby get trapped in a burning building? USE YOUR BRAINS PEOPLE!!!
EdgyOutsider - 1/27/2013, 6:58 AM
@dancingmonkey08: I say no to a new trilogy. I want a trilogy. One great big story, tie the knot at the end of the trilogy to wrap up any loose ends and that's it. I don't want another trilogy. Not until Marvel gets the rights back.
AlertTheSus - 2/6/2013, 9:06 AM
I'm so [frick]ing sick of people going "omg all Webb did was copy the Raimi movies" like have any of you picked up a comic in your life?! thats spider-mans origin it hasnt changed since the [frick]ing 60's when it was created. obviously theres going to be simularities and shit thats the same cuz its being written from the same source material....some [frick]ing people SMFH.
