It’s official! Sony have given fans of the iconic wall-crawling comic-book character an early Christmas present with confirmation that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 trailer will arrive online on the 5th December.
The rather appropriately named Marc Webb is once again at the helm of the blockbusting return of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and his alter-ego, as he takes on Jamie Foxx’s sparky villain Max Dillon (aka Electro) as well as the introduction of a host of other goons. All who a sure to make their presence felt in the expected future instalments as part of the Sinister Six.
I saw a rough unfinished cut of the trailer during San Diego Comic Con which suggested there were as many amusing moments as there were action-packed set-pieces.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will swing into UK cinemas from 18th April and the US on the 2nd May 2014. It co-stars Emma Stone, B.J. Novak, Denis Leary, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Zylka, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Marton Csokas, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti and Sarah Gadon.
Woody Allen is already currently at work on his next project titled “Magic In The Moonlight”. Though plot details were not revealed, a photo of Marcia and Emma on set in old-fashioned clothing with vintage cars in the background indicate that it will be a period piece.
After the disappointing GHOSTBUSTERS 2 followed one of the most popular films of the early 80?s the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise has been left in a state of limbo, with the only legitimate development being the two animated Television series’ that were released shortly after the first and second films.
A third film in the franchise has been teased for a long time by former Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd with Sony seemingly eager for the original team to once again put on the iconic proton packs. The only hurdle has been Bill Murray’s involvement, after a long back and fourth between Aykroyd, Sony and the general public it has become very clear Mr Murray has no desire whatsoever to reprise his role as Peter Venkman. Now it seems that Sony is finally ready to press ahead with long stalled GHOSTBUSTERS 3 without Bill Murray, as a new rumour claims that offers have been made to two of the most highly talented and demanded young actors in Hollywood.
Jonah Hill (21 JUMP STREET) and Emma Stone (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) have both been offered roles in the upcoming sequel, if they accept then they will play the parts of Jeremy and Anna. Who Jeremy and Anna are is unclear at the moment but it’s safe to assume they would be part of a new younger generation of Ghostbusters possibly even children of the original members. It’s to early to get excited yet but we can certainly be cautiously optimistic that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is inching ever closer to getting the greenlight from Sony. The possible involvement of these two actors is definitely an exciting prospect after losing leading actor Bill Murray and it would be great to see them work together again after the brilliant SUPERBAD.
