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.

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.

Bob Iger Drops Incredibles 2, CARS 3, and STAR WARS VII Details During Investor Conference Call

Written by Admiral Duke for DisFanReview.com
It's happened before that Bob Iger has dropped little bits of information during his regular conference calls for Disney investors. However, this morning conference call is generating FAR more buzz than normal. Here is why.
During the conference call Iger told investors what Star Wars fans had already supposed. However, Disney's CEO saying it puts a stamp of reality upon the news that the internet rumor mill simply cannot provide. Iger said officially that STAR WARS Episode VII will take place 30 years after Return Of The Jedi, it will begin production in May, and will feature some 'Very Familiar Faces' as well as a trio of young leads. Most of us can read a lot into that but I think it safe to assume that official casting news will happen very very soon.


The real big whopper of the conference call was when Iger announced that Brad Bird is currently writing the story for Incredibles 2. Fans have long wanted to see a sequel to PIXAR's superhero film and it now looks like it is on the way from the original films writer and director.

The least surprising news from the conference call is the news of PIXAR officially working on CARS 3. The news isn't shocking for a number of reasons. One, Disney announced last week that an all new series of CARS shorts is underway which seemed to indicate that there was a larger plan in place for the future of the franchise. Secondly, CARS is a merchandising juggernaut that has netted Disney BILLIONS of dollars since the first CARS film. So an all new CARS sequel is really a no-brainer.

No word on release dates on Incredibles 2 or CARS 3 but that information will probably be released shortly.

Saving Mr. Banks Available On Blu-ray Today


Written by Admiral Duke for DisFanReview

While most people are completely wrapped up in obtaining Disney's blockbuster animated film FROZEN on blu-ray today, there is another Disney film that comes to home video today. Saving Mr. Banks is the charming and remarkable story of how Walt Disney convinced author P.L. Travers to give him the film rights to make Mary Poppins.

Today we present a series of videos showcasing a few of the awesome bonus features available on the Saving Mr. Banks blu-ray release. First up is the official trailer from the film.


The blu-ray release also includes a series of delleted scenes from the film. This first one is an amazing performed exchange between Walt(Hanks) and Pamela(Thompson) as she is about to return to London after what she believes to be a major betrayal. The primary reason this scene didn't make it into the film is due to the fact that everything revealed here was later revealed and resolved later in the film.

Sometimes, there are deleted scenes from a film that seem to have been deleted for no discernible reason. This scene is depicts a sweet and poignant moment between Pamela's parents. The young Pamela secretly listens as her father makes a loving grand promise to his wife that he will never be able to keep. It's a beautiful scene that was like cut to trim down the running time.


Our final video is a short snippet from the featurette The Walt Disney. This clip showcases a little bit about Walt Disney and his work ethic during his time running Walt Disney Studios in the 50's and 60's.
