New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Trailer And Triptych Poster: Spidey, Electro, Rhino, And Green Goblin Take Manhattan!


Wallopin’ websnappers! After months of nothing but spy pics, some Comic-Con teasing, and a lot of idle fanwanking, Sony has finally shifted the marketing machine for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 in full gear by releasing a sweet new triptych set of posters, an official theatrical trailer, and an exact duplicate of that trailer with video commentary from director Marc Webb and actors Andrew Garfield, Dale DeHaan, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx.

Bryan Singer Tweets X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Announcement; Plot Details And Release Date Revealed


“#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!”

And with that one tweet, director Bryan Singer lines up his next gig.

Vulture, Badass Digest, Movieweb, and pretty much every fanboy site on the interwebs is reporting Singer and 20th Century Fox are already hard at work on a sequel to next summer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Subtitled APOCALPYSE, the film will feature the “First Class” group of mutants – Professor X (James McAvoy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), and whoever else might be introduced in DAYS – doing battle with fan favorite baddie Apocalypse (pictured above).

I would explain Apocalypse, his connection to the X-Men, and his master plan, but it’s wayyy too convoluted to explain in just a couple of sentences. Click HERE to check out his Wiki page, if you want. Long story short, he’s a giant purple ancient mutant warlord hell-bent on destroying Earth. He’s basically the Thanos (the giant purple ancient mutant warlord who appeared in the end credits of THE AVENGERS) of the X-MEN universe. Not that his comic description matters. First Showing has uncovered the film version of Apocalypse will likely be quite different from the comic book version.

man OF steel

With less than two weeks to go before Zach Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL soars into theaters, Warner Bros has cranked the marketing machine into high gear. After the jump you’ll find a wicked cool collection of promo material (My initial worry this flick would be a beautiful bore like SUPERMAN RETURNS has thankfully been quelled) consisting of three Abrams-esque character posters (So many lens flares! MY EYES!!), twelve TV spots (!), two theatrical trailers, six behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a 17 minute preview of Han Zimmer’s score.

New CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Set Pics Offer 1st Look At Falcon And The Winter Soldier

winter soldier

Superhero Hype has posted the first pics of Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and while it’s nice to see directors Joe and Anthony Russo are using green screen (the first Cap flick was jam-packed with CG) and the MAKEOVER-MATIC 3000 (a funky red and white disco jumpsuit just wouldn’t fly, no pun intended, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), I’m not sure why they traded the character’s trademark detachable jet-powered glider wings for a parachute. Wings are so much more badass than a parachute.
