While speaking at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas this weekend Marc Webb addressed fan concerns about too many villains being thrown into the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. The ASM2 director revealed the following about Paul Giamatti’s role as the Rhino in the film (via the Hollywood Reporter):
It would be safe to assume that Giamatti’s role as the Rhino will be expanded in the proposed Sinister Six film and perhaps further sequels.

Comic Book Resources has posted a preview of the upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man #200.
As well as some interesting story pages, the preview also includes this image of some recognisable Ultimate characters. And one very unusual looking Spider-Man.
Who is this new masked man?
Update: As some poster’s have speculated, it seems Bendis has been hinting about an Ultimate Scarlet Spider.

Backstory: I read the first issue of this, and while I am not against non-sequential story telling (I love the work of David Lynch for example), I decided I didn’t wish to invest in a monthly comic that borrowed from that style. I was then asked to review issue #5…for what it’s worth Peter and Mary Jane get together at the end.
Mar 07 2014BD in Crawlspace Podcast, Spidey Friday Night Fights
In this Spidey Friday Night Fight we take you back to 1990 and look at Web of Spider-Man # 64 and 65. It’s a little known classic fight that shows off Spidey’s fighting abilities. He takes on Graviton, Titania, Brothers Grimm, Trapster and Goliath. This is a crazy fight where Spidey has to avoid the sewer, cement and flying baked goods?

There’s a big spoiler in the Osborn one about Norman’s fate, which I think isn’t true.

Plot: Our issue begins with our yet to be assembled team struggling with the High Evolutionary’s forces. Justice and Speedball, after getting their collective butts handed to them in Hogwarts-ville USA, run into Sun Girl and Haechi, who is a “horny” (Har har har), Inhuman, after attempting to contact the Avengers but to no avail. The foursome fights with the Evolutionaries in the Morlock tunnels as the baddies spout off about being protectors of the human race, obviously confusing our heroes. On the other side of the world, Kaine and Aracely encounter “Water Snake”, an Atlantean who’s looking for heroes to help fight the Evolutionaries who are attacking her people, and go through your typical “misunderstanding but eventually unite to combat a common foe”. Our issue ends with the High Evolutionary gloating to an imprisoned Nova that they are going to save the world.

Spoiler Warning: Obviously this issue is a few months old now, but it does contain a major plot development which I had spoiled for me, so I want to give anyone whose currently unspoiled fair warning. This is that warning: I am going to discuss this major plot development in this review.

Advance Reorders – Guardians, Harley Quinn, Superior Spider-Man And Bunker Are Your Comics To Watch – Bleeding CoolPosted by: ryan3178 in News
UPDATED at 5:00 pm CST – TMZ confirms that Andrew Garfield did spend the day with Miles Scott at Disneyland after their Oscar presentation was scrapped. Additionally, Garfield and Miles did their own mini-Oscar ceremony in the Scott family’s hotel room. Again – very classy of Andrew Garfield to go all out for Miles Scott! TMZ also has a pic of Garfield & Scott together.
(Original story below)
Current Hollywood Spider-Man Andrew Garfield was not to be seen at the Academy Awards on Sunday night despite being previously scheduled as a presenter. ‘Captain America’ Chris Evans stepped in as a last minute replacement. But what was behind the couple’s absence? Radar Online reports it was a ‘personal matter’ that caused Garfield & Stone to cancel:
But was this really the case? Apparently not. The Academy released a statement through a spokesperson saying that a spot with Garfield and Batkid & cancer survivor Miles Scott had to be cut from the production. During the spot, which was supposed to have been set-up via the Make A Wish Foundation (who had the cancer survivor become Batkid last year, which stormed the Internet for several days), Miles – as Batkid – was to be named an ‘Official Superhero.’ E! Online reports that the Academy spokesperson stated:
Good for Spidey to make time to visit Batkid at Disneyland after the Oscar spot was cut!

A man dressed in a Spider-Man mask released four boxes of butterflies inside the Bulgaria Parliament. He tried to escape the building but was detained. No motive was given why he released the butterflies. How very strange!

A couple of new Amazing Spider-Man 2 images have hit the net.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb spoke with SFX.com about Spider-Man’s costume change from the first film to the second film, which puts the character back into something that more resembles his iconic regular costume:

The company’s brand director, Tim Kilby, when speaking to the Manchester Evening News said:
Any UK Spider-Man fans with kids or just wanting that unique look for their own bedroom be on the look out.

Thoughts on Mary Jane. Read the rest of this entry »
Artist Joe Jusko is returning to the Marvel Masterpieces trading cards to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary. Back in 1992 it was one of my favorite cards sets of the dozens that Marvel put out. His Spidey is iconic and I’m down for another round. Jusko will be painting 135 new cards. Here’s an interview with him about the project.

Spider-Island falls, while Mary Jane Calls in this titular issue of Superior Spider-Man.
“Goblin Nation, Part 2”
Here is the variant cover to Amazing Spider-Man #527 by the late Mike Wieringo. Released as part of a series of variants done to celebrate the Other storyline. I’m in a bit of a Spider-Man 2099 mood, as I played Edge of Time this weekend for the first time. I’m now going onto Marvel Unlimited to see what Miguel O’Hara stories they have to read.
This is Shaline Woodley probablly shot back when she was cast as Mary Jane Watson in Amazing Spider-Man 2. Her hair looks photoshopped, but it’s a cool pic non-the-less.

New to comics anyway, as Bendis states:
My knowledge of the 60′s show is limited to the theme song and the endless meme’s, but does anyone have any guesses which of the series unique villains is getting ready to make their comic debut.
Could this be the latest character to pull a Harley Quinn…
