Zendaya cast in the ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot in “key role”


My wife is obsessed with Zendaya, for what it is worth. There was a stretch when the Disney Channel was on our television every weekend. For like, a year. So I’m familiar with the pop actress. Wife? Loves her. Me? She’s a decent enough actor. Cute. Sure?

Rumor: Captain America and Iron Man in the next ‘Spider-Man’ movie


Lost in all the fapping over and critiquing of last week’s Civil War trailer was this: there wasn’t any Spider-Kid in the trailer. Which is sort of dope, ’cause it means they’re saving him. For when? Who knows! But he will be in the movie, as part of the glorious Shared Universe. And it gets better! Not only is Spidey appearing in a Cap movie, but Cap and Iron Man will also be appearing in his.

Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man’ director search narrowed down to Ted Melfi and Jonathan Levine

Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Why was I still laboring under the delusion that Drew Goddard was running the Spider-Man project? Is he writing it or something? Or is it just wishful thinking, post-Daredevil? Anyways. Marvel’s search is down to these two dudes.

NEW Spider-Man Set Photos Got Parker In A Pimp Robe. Rock.

I often get into a debate about what I give a fuck about and what I’ll post about. Generally I ignore shit I don’t give a fuck about, but sometimes there’s a subsection of something I give a fuck about that I actually don’t give a fuck about.

Translation: I’m riding the new Spider-Man’s jock, but I don’t give a fuck about retarded set photos taken while they’re not shooting. But for continuity’s sake, I’ll post them anyways.

Spider-Man Reboot Gets An Official Title! Plus, New Promo Image.

Oh snap, the Spider-Man reboot has gotten its official title. Hold your breath! Ready? It’s going to be called The Amazing Spider-Man. Shocking? Sort of? Maybe? No? Predictable? None of those responses would surprise me.

It’s amazing that with all the Parker rage going on here at OL from myself and others, I’m eagerly anticipating the flick. I dug Webb’s 500 Days, and Garfield’s performance in the Social Network sold me as well. I’m certain that whatever apathy I have regarding the franchise as a whole won’t prohibit me from giving the reboot a fair chance.

Hit the jump for the promo image they dropped at the time of the announcement.
