New Images Of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Seem To Spell Doom For Spider-Man's Girlfriend


May 2nd is fast approaching, and with it the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2. A lot has been revealed about what we can expect from the film. We know that the main bad guy will be Electro with a little support from Rhino and the Green Goblin. What we don't know yet is what the fate of Peter Parker/Spider-Man's true love Gwen Stacey will be. The internet is full of speculation that the film incarnation of her character will receive the same terrible end that her comic book version got. A snapped neck after a very long fall at the hands of the Green Goblin. 

Now, a new set of images from Entertainment Weekly suggests to comic book fans that that is exactly what we can expect. What bothers me is the fact that actress Emma Stone is wearing a strikingly similar outfit to the one that Gwen Stacey wears when she dies. As well, it doesn't seem to bode well for the character that in one of these images she is in very close proximity to the Green Goblin. 


STAR WARS: Assault Team & Avengers Alliance Now Available For Windows Phone


An all new Star Wars game has landed for you mobile phone, and for the first time, it has landed on all available platforms. It's fairly standard that new games and apps are released for iPhone and Android upon initial release, but it usually takes some time for those apps to appear on  the Windows Phone platform. With STAR WARS: Assault Team, Windows Phone owners get to jump in on the fun from the beginning.



Having said that, An app that's been available on iPhone and Android for quite awhile is MARVEL and Playdom's Avengers Alliance. The massively popular Facebook game is also quite popular on mobile. Avengers Alliance is now available for download on Windows Phone.

All New Trailer For 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'


Director Bryan Singer has promised that X-Men: Days Of Future Past will be a cohesive narrative that will repair the continuity of the X-Men cinematic universe. However, after the first official trailer was released last year, cohesion was not a word that many people would use to describe what they saw. 

The hope among many, including this writer, was that the second trailer would help to clarify where the film was headed. Unfortunately, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks as clumsy and confusing as the first trailer indicated it would be. Sure, the movie could prove to be as big a success as First Class was but at least audiences had a sense of what to expect with that movie.  

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Opens May 23rd 2014.


The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original "X-Men" film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from "X-Men: First Class," in an epic battle that must change the past -- to save our future.

MUST WATCH! The Final Trailer For Amazing Spider-Man 2


Official Plot Synopsis From SONY
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
