  • Sam Raimi’s Thoughts on Marvel/Sony’s Spider-Man Film Reboot

    Whenever the discussion of Spider-Man in the movies comes up, the topic will inevitably involve the filmmaker who first brought Spidey to the silver screen, director Sam Raimi.  Even when talking about his other film and television projects, the creator of the original Spider-Man trilogy is bound to be…

  • Spider-Man News From San Diego Comic Con 2015

    While we all had a sneak peak earlier in the week of some of the new Spider-Man related titles coming out of the “All-New, All-Different Marvel” initiative, this year’s San Diego Comic Con promised to divulge a few more details and also announce additional titles at the “Spider-Man and…

Well, it now appears we may have to add one more title…

  • Secret Wars (2015) #4 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    REED RICHARDS:“I can’t help but notice you decided to put yourself on a throne.” PETER PARKER/SPIDER-MAN:“Yeah. We’re all absolutely shocked by that. Just floored.” So what happens when a tyrant and self-proclaimed god is reunited with the world’s smartest but useless man with a body made of rubber? You…

  • Amazing Spider-Man #19.1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “You made a mistake…don’t make things worse by denying it.” As you can guess by the cover, the Circus (of Crime) is in town. Except, as the Ringmaster tells Spider-Man in this fourth chapter of Gerry Conway’s Spiral, they’re really just the sideshow for the main act. “Spiral, Part…

  • Details of the Relaunched Amazing Spider-Man Revealed

    As those of you who are regular visitors of the Spider-Man Crawlspace well know, Bleeding Cool did a series of leaks regarding some of the new titles and creative teams post-Secret Wars as part of Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” initiative.  One of the series was another relaunching of Amazing Spider-Man…

  • Spidey Still An Avenger…But Now Uncanny

    So with all of the “All-New, All-Different Marvel” stuff that’s been going on, one of the questions is what’s going to happen to Peter Parker once Secret Wars is done? Well if what Bleeding Cool is reporting is accurate, we may have gotten some idea. Although the article doesn’t…

  • A Pregnant Spider-Woman, A “Sinister” Silk, And A Conway-Written Carnage To Debut

    Yep, three more Spider-Man spin-off titles are on their way this October, as according to Bleeding Cool and their continual revealing of more upcoming post-Secret Wars titles for Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” Relaunch. The first is the relaunch of Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez on Spider-Woman, with a brand-new #1.…

  • Spider-Gwen In Second Series Titled Web Warriors

    Just as they did with the earlier story regarding Venom: Spaceknight, Bleeding Cool is also reporting Spider-Gwen will be in another ongoing, this time with a team of different Spider-Men and Women (and pig). Spinning (no pun intended) out of Secret Wars and it’s Spider-Verse tie-in mini series, the…

  • Ariel Olivetti Teases Possible New Venom Series

    It appears there will be quite a few new Spider-Man titles spinning their way out of Secret Wars this fall. At least if this teaser by artist Ariel Olivetti is anything to go by. The teaser, showing the classic black-and-white spider emblem associated with Venom and Spidey’s black costume,…

  • Asa Butterfield Is Out As Spider-Man; Three Actors Still In

    Asa Butterfield, the 18-year old actor who was rumored to be the odds-on favorite to be the next Spider-Man as part of Sony’s deal with Marvel Studios, is no longer in contention. That’s the rumor anyway as according to The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider. On the Meet the Movie Press…

  • Secret Wars (2015) #3 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “What’re…I mean how are you…here?” You know, it’s very odd when you have this third chapter of a series called Secret Wars, which takes taking place on a planet called Battleworld no less, and there’s not a single fight takes place whatsoever. None whatsoever. Not even so much as…

  • Amazing Spider-Man #18.1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “I believe you’re a good person making bad choices.” This just in: we interrupt our ongoing Spider-Man Secret Wars coverage to bring you a Spider-Man comic which is (gasp!) not in any connected to Secret Wars! That’s right, it’s part three of Gerry Conway’s tale of crime and intrigue,…

  • Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “…that was just me. Peter Parker. A dad in a stupid red-and-blue suit.” It’s the Secret Wars tie-in series “you’ve all been waiting for,” or perhaps dreading the most. The one in which the advanced orders outnumbered the orders for event it’s spinning out of. The comic with the…

  • Is Asa Butterfield Our New Spider-Man?

    That’s what both Umberto Gonzales and Kellvin Chavez of Latino Review are claiming.  Back in April 29 of this year, and as posted by George Berryman, the 18-year old star of The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas (2008), Hugo (2011) and Ender’s Game (2013) was considered to be one…

  • Secret Wars (2015) #2 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “What is this place?” And thus, the Marvel Universe of old is no more. But before you can sing, “And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low?” an All-New Marvel Universe is reborn to take its place: Battleworld! Or as I like to…

  • All-New Captain America Special #1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “Looks like it’s up to you, me and a team of hormone-ravaged teenagers.” So after Spidey and everyone else wondering where the Avengers were at when some former golden-age superhero turned madman showed up, it looks like just one Avenger happened to fly to the rescue. And unlike the…

  • Secret Wars (2015) #1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “The Marvel Universe, 1961-2015; The Ultimate Universe, 2000-2015” –Jonathan Hickman “Huh?” –Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man of Earth-616 “What the–?” –Miles Morales, aka Spider-Man of Earth-1610 “It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.” Or at least I would be if I knew what…

  • Amazing Spider-Man (2014) #18 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “Sajani was right. I am a terrible person.” So the 616 and Ultimate universes are destroyed in Secret Wars—but not before Peter’s company gets destroyed as seen on the cover of this issue. And I must say, I can’t think of a more apt metaphor for this issue of…

  • Inhumans Special #1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “Sorry. I’ve already forgotten your names.” Don’t let the name of this comic fool you. Even though it has “Inhuman” in the title, and features the Inhumans, this is still very much as Spider-Man comic as much as it is a continuation from last months Amazing Spider-Man Special #1.…

  • Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man Franchise Plans, Part Three: The Female Superhero Spin-Off

    So after reading those Sony e-mails which were hacked last December and posted by WikiLeaks during the past week, we’ve seen one marketing executive’s proposal for future Spider-Man films, and that based on what Drew Goddard was proposing for his Sinister Six movie, he was either an ambitious, mad…

  • Amazing Spider-Man #17.1 Review: Stillanerd’s Take

    “Whoa. Someone’s a bit tetchy.” It’s part two of Gerry Conway’s return to The Amazing Spider-Man comics (or least a series of “Point One” issues) and this time, he’s got Spidey and the Wraith matching up with one his own villains, Hammerhead. Oh, and they also fight Phil Urich,…
