'Chronicle' director may helm Venom movie

Sony is feeling good about Spider-Man lately. The series reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, hasn’t yet hit theaters, but the studio is already planning a Venom spin-off, according to the LA Times. The film, based on one of Spider-Man’s most famous foes, could be directed by Josh Trank, who helmed the commercially and critically successful Chronicle — which is still in theaters (and you should probably watch).

First clip of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' shows a flustered Peter Parker

The first true trailer and information about Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man reboot was released last week, but today we got a look at a clip from the film. Unlike the trailer, this is a scene that plays in its entirety. Here, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is attempting to enter Gwen Stacy’s building to go to dinner, but is stopped by a doorman. Unlike Tobey Maguire’s more distant Parker, this one seems a lot more timid and flustered. His reactions to the situation are quite natural and if I were the doorman, I might be suspicious as well.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' trailer & sneak preview: How it's different from Raimi's trilogy

amazing-spider-man-spidey-swinging-foot-and-web-shooter-the-daily

The Amazing Spider-Man is undoubtedly one of the biggest movies coming out this year, but there are a lot of people who still don’t quite know how it ties in with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Is it a remake? A reboot? A sequel? Well, from what we’re hearing about the sneak preview, new shots, and Director Mark Webb (500 Days of Summer) himself, it sounds like the new film is a completely different take on Spider-Man. The new trailer confirms it.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' teaser poster - Marc Webb promises us The Untold Story 

It’s hard to know what to think of Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. Webb directed the fantastic 500 Days of Summer, starring Zoey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but the first-person perspective of the trailer was somewhat strange, to say the least. Hopefully the film won’t end up being a drama mixed with a theme park ride, but we’ll have to wait and see. It’s looking like a darker film than the Sam Raimi trilogy, if nothing else. A tagline of “The untold story” also sounds interesting. Hopefully it will be something new.

First look at The Amazing Spider-Man's mask

Filmonic has posted a first look at Spider-Man's mask and suit in The Amazing Spider-Man, the upcoming reboot of the series previously starring Toby Maguire. As is usually the case with Hollywood, the new design seems to have a grittier look to it with more detail than the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. It all looks a bit more rubbery, but it's cool how you can make out Peter Parker's eyes inside the mask, if you look hard enough. The previous mask (see below) looked a lot more spandex-ey. The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3, 2012 and is being directed by Marc Webb, who made one of my favorite films, 500 Days of Summer

Why rumors suck: Is Logan Lerman '100% locked' to play Peter Parker, or not?

Wow. Sometimes these rumors play themselves out like a Katy Perry song. Over the weekend HitFlix reported that Logan Lerman, who recently played Percy Jackson, was the clear frontrunner and "almost 100%" confirmed as the next Peter Parker in Sony's upcoming Spider-Man film, a restart of the franchise to be directed by 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb.

Then Deadline Hollywood talked to their Sony source who says that Logan Lerman is "100% not going to be Spidey." In reaction, Drew McWeeny from HitFlix updated his post, acknowledging Deadline's article but standing behind his own.

GREEN LANTERN to have a CGI costume

Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Batman's costumes may have looked computer generated, but Green Lantern is about to take it to the next level. Ryan Reynolds will wear only a motion capture suit while filming Martin Cambell's version of the Green Lantern, reports /Film.

My problem, unlike heavy CGI characters of the past, like Spider-Man and Iron Man, Green Lantern shows his face. So we're going to have a computer generated body pasted on a real head--it could look bad, very bad. However, it should be noted that Green Lantern is a different kind of superhero. Much like Venom (Spider-Man villian), he can change his suit on the fly. From what I understand, it scans onto his body very quickly. The design is still a secret, but supposedly his suit should glow with energy. John Gholson from Cinematical thinks his chest logo may even hover out from his suit. Interesting, to be sure.
