Earlier this week, Total Film released their massive interview with Edgar Wright. The interview allowed fans to send in questions via Email or Twitter and the Ant-Man director would answer as many as he could. One question that was raised had nothing to do with Man Of Steel but Mr Wright turned the question into a Man Of Steel debate. Plus Sony have revealed a new banner for their new Spider-Man film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sadly the image on the banner is not new, but it's great to see the marketing in full swing... get it, cause he swings. Anyway, you'll find all this information below. Enjoy!

For Peter Parker, life is busy. Between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen Stacy, high school graduation cannot come quickly enough. Peter has not forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away, but that is a promise he cannot keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Edgar Wright On MAN OF STEEL:

“I think that’s a good thing because I think the character has a great kind of high concept power, and I think the fact that it’s lesser known means that we’re actually freer to kind of adapt the material, which I think is a good thing. Because I think sort of, you know, Man Of Steel has proved that people sort of like for a character that decades old, some people have a very strong opinion of what he should and shouldn’t do. And personally I find that really difficult to actually try and make a movie with, people sort of being so kind of impassioned about what the character is. The whole idea is you’re doing an adaptation. I mean Chris Nolan’s Batman is very different to Tim Burton’s Batman, which is very different to Adam West Batman. And there’s room for all three. The character can support that in the same way that six James Bonds are all different. So I think the nice thing about that title and that character is that there is a bit more license to kind of do something different with it.”

Marvel's Ant-Man is set to hit theatres everywhere November 6th 2015. Until then you can catch Edgar Wright's new film, The World's End which is hitting theatres this Friday.

The new suit reminds me a lot of the Raimi one, but there's something about it that's so comical, and fun and it just screams Spider-Man. Especially in that pose! This movie seems like it will be less dark than the first and morel like The raimi films if they took themselves more seriously.

And about MOS. I just read Superman: Secret Origin which is essentially one of the most blue boy scout like Superman comics and at the end he kills Metallo by flying up in space with him and letting him die because of no oxygen.

Edgar Wright has it, er, right. Man of Steel is a different interpretation, and should be accepted as such. Smallville was different. Lois and Clark was different. The Chris Reeve movies were different. The George Reeves TV show was different. Some have more changes than others and reflect the times that they are made.

The difference between him killing Metallo and him killing Zod is this. The only person Metallo was a threat to was Superman and Superman killed him. When Superman kills a man to save the world everyone gets upset.
