Hugh Jackman Wants Wolverine to Play with 'The Avengers' Too!

In today's installment of Hugh Jackman keepin' it real, the "Wolverine" star thinks it's high time the current big three among superhero studios — that'd be Warner Bros., Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox — pass around some kinda olive branch and make nice so that he can play with Iron Man and Spider-Man and all the other cool kids, too!

Yup, in a new sit-down with Collider to promote his latest turn as the adamantium-filled fighter, hitting theaters on July 26, Jackman laments all the mine-mine-mine stuff going down between the three comic-to-movie heavyweight champs of the industry right now ... especially since it means he can't flex his "X-Men" claws alongside the likes of "Iron Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man."

'Why Can't Spider-Man Be Gay?' Asks Andrew Garfield

"Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a gay man can..."

Why can't Peter Parker be gay or bisexual? That's what Andrew Garfield wants to know. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2" star revealed that he's half-seriously/half-jokingly pressured producers to make "M.J." a dude.

"Why can't we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality?" he says he told producer Matt Tolmach. "It's hardly even groundbreaking!... So why can't he be gay? Why can't he be into boys?" Get More »

Mary Jane Watson may have played a central role in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but she won't show-up in the rebooted version until 2016.

Yes, there were set photos of "The Descendants" star Shailene Woodley floating around from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," but those scenes have either been axed or will be saved for the third movie, "Superman: The Movie"/"Back to the Future"/"Kill Bill"/"The Lord of the Rings" style.

According to a new interview in Entertainment Weekly (which we became hip to thanks to Superhero Hype), Woodley understandably isn't super stoked about the news, but she gets the reasoning behind it. Get More »

Yes, There Is A God: Andrew Garfield Plays Basketball With Kids In Full Spider-Man Regalia

New York City is currently being bombarded with all sorts of super-heroism, as the cast and crew from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" are in the Big Apple shooting the highly anticipated sequel. Anytime a big movie like this shoots in a city this stuffed with people, there are inevitably interesting encounters between pedestrians and big screen superheroes and villains (like when Jamie Foxx strolled through Times Square in his lightning-blue Electro make-up). And while amateur paparazzi have been capturing moments of impromptu Spider-mania throughout the shoot, nothing has come close to being as heartwarmingly adorable as the footage of Andrew Garfield, dressed head-to-toe in his Spider-Man ensemble, playing a pick-up game of basketball with two little kids.

First Look: Paul Giamatti Is The Rhino In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Sony

"Iron Man 3" and "Man of Steel" might be the superhero names on everyone's lips this summer, but next summer it's going to be a very different scene thanks to "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." But why wait when you can get your first look at the sinister Rhino right now thanks to director Marc Webb himself?

Yes, Webb has just tweeted out the first photo of Paul Giamatti in character as the deadly Aleksei Sytsevich. And he looks... well, pretty pissed off.

Of course, he also doesn't look much like a rhino, as he's not wearing his patented Rhino suit. So will he actually be suiting up in the movie? It's hard to guess. After all, comic fans were already surprised to see that Jamie Foxx's Electro looks more like a member of Blue Man Group than the traditional Marvel Comics supervillain.

So whatever. One thing is sure, though: Giamatti definitely doesn't need a costume to look scary. Save us, Spider-Man!
