Last summer's superhero reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man" was pretty cool, mostly because of the chemistry between stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, but as much as we love The Lizard, the action scenes were just kind of ho-hum. You know, fighting a big gekko is cool and everything, but we like our Spider-Men to be in a little more danger.
Well, someone at Sony apparently fells the same way, because according to Heat Vision, Oscar winner Chris Cooper has just signed on to play the sinister Norman Osborn in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
Look out, Spidey, the Green Goblin is back! Get More »
When Sam Raimi held the reins of the "Spider-Man" franchise he basically kept the webslinger's costume consistent, that black gooey alien Symbiote suit notwithstanding.
Of course, any Batman or Iron Man fan will tell you a character's suit usually changes somewhat from movie to movie depending on the whims of the toy company machine. Hence, reboot director Marc Webb has given ComingSoon the first glimpse of Spidey's new duds from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Get More »
Director Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy was one of the most popular and lucrative series in film history, so it's safe to say that they hold a special place in the director's heart. And that's just compounded by the fact that he didn't actually want to quit the series. So needless to say, his feelings about last year's franchise reboot, "The Amazing Spider-Man," are... complex.
Complex enough that Raimi refuses to even watch it. Get More »
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but when that picture is a photo of the new Harry Osborn in the upcoming superhero blockbuster 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2," it's more accurate that a picture is worth about 10,000 re-tweets.

Usually when a big Hollywood studio has to decide whether or not to give the greenlight to a potential sequel, it can be a long and arduous process. First they have to consider box office recipts and weigh them against production and marketing costs. Then they need to factor in ancillary revenue streams like merchandise and Blu-ray sales. And even if the money part works out, then they still have to check their upcoming slate of projects to see if it fits in. It can take a long time.
Unless, of course, the film in question is "The Amazing Spider-Man," which according to Total Film did so well at the box office yesterday that Sony has already officially decided to make not one but two sequels. Get More »
With all the hullabaloo surrounding the imminent arrival of "The Avengers" it's easy to forget that another friendly neighborhood hero is swinging into theaters this summer.
Director Marc Webb confirmed on G4's "Attack of the Show" (via ComingSoon) that this oversight will be corrected on May 4 when Sony attaches the brand spankin' new trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man" to Joss Whedon's team-up blockbuster, making it a virtual Marvel Universe melting pot. As if you needed another reason to see Iron Man punch Thor, right? Get More »
Look out, New York City -- there's a new wall-crawler in town.
We have to admit, we were pretty skeptical when it was first announced that, instead of going forward with "Spider-Man 4" with director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire, Sony was going to completely reboot the franchise with a brand-new director and cast. We agreed that dumping plans for "Spider-Man 4" was a good idea ("Spider-Man 3" was a bit of a mess, and Maguire certainly isn't getting any younger), but as it hasn't even been ten years since Raimi unveiled his first "Spider-Man," was it really already time to start from scratch?
