Jamie Foxx Says THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Will Be Going to Comic-Con

     May 24, 2013


In 2011, The Amazing Spider-Man went to Comic-Con, and showed off the first footage of The Lizard (the reaction on Twitter from my peers seemed to be “That looks like Killer Croc, and I hope they do more work on the CGI”).  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to kick off the 2014 summer movie season, and so it looks like Sony is bringing the movie for a panel at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 18 – 21st.  Jamie Foxx, who plays the villain Electro, tells Yahoo! Movies, “Now I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it.”  People will probably be enthusiastic.  They love Spider-Man, and while The Amazing Spider-Man is a misfire, it didn’t kill off interest in the reboot.  There’s still a great cast, and hopefully the script is stronger this time around.

The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaanShailene WoodleyPaul GiamattiFelicity JonesChris Cooper, and Sally FieldThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

    Matt Goldberg – giving the people what they want … if what they want is a reprise of a review they wrote nearly a year ago. All Jamie Foxx said was that the film was going to Comic-Con, but Goldberg thinks, “Every news story has to be ABOUT ME!” The sad thing is that he is such a narcissist that he actually thinks that.

      His interjecting his negative opinion in EVERY article he writes is getting a little stale.

      • NathanArizona

        I especially like when he comically retitles movies to better fit his negative opinion of it, or when he writes reviews saying how a movie could’ve been so much better if they’d only done things HIS way. I can’t wait to see Goldberg’s directorial debut, I’m sure it will be great!

        Cheers. Hope he reads the threads on his own site.

        He’s admittedly said he doesn’t read the comments, and when he does, he doesn’t care what they say. Which I guess CAN be a good attitude, because he’s not too worried about what people think. But when it comes to lowering the quality of the site you represent, you should probably pay attention. I’ve told Frosty about it all, and he just said something along the lines of “I may not agree with his opinions, but I respect his right to have one”. And that’s completely fair. But he’s representing HIS site, and not in a very good way.

    amazing spider-man was way better than spider-man 3…

    • Sweet Pea

      To be fair tho, the dump I just took was way better than Spiderman 3 and a lot more enjoyable… Spiderman 1 and 2 by Raimi tho, holy moly that is proper superhero movie sh*t!

  • AmazingSpider

    Amazing was a pretty decent origin story. It had it’s parallels to Raimi’s version, but in my opinion everything was done in a better way.
    For some reason the goblin in the original just looked to cartoony and nowhere near as intimidating as the lizard.
    I’d say Raimi’s version on the origin story was overall good but Amazing did the same stuff much better.

  • Grayden

    Ah Goldberg, never missing an opportunity to inject his opinion where it is neither needed nor wanted.

  • filmquack

    Regardless of how you personally feel about the film, what exactly made it a misfire? Its financial success. or the majority of positive reviews from the critics? Oh its not a misfire? That is SO INTERESTING.

    • schoolfigures

      Totally agree with all of the above opinions here. Goldberg should have written “while I CONSIDER it a misfire” – because box office, critics, and public opinion all seem to say otherwise about ASM.

  • Marlboroliteman

    Jaime Foxx looks like Ted Dansen’s zombie from Creepshow.

  • Killabee

    The only thing they did wrong is cast Andrew Garfield. Don’t get me wrong he is a great actor, but Peter Parker should be like 5’2-5’6 and look like a dweeb not like the kid who everyone looks at and thinks there gonna be famous. Still look forward to the movie I have a real good feeling about it, the same when they where filming man of steel.

    • doctor_robot

      garfield was a great casting decision. i had doubts about him until i saw the film. i loved it. he has the right body for it, and the guy is an incredible actor. and gwen instead of mary-jane… sealed the deal.

  • Tone LG

    Another Matt Goldberg special.

  • kimian

    ASM is indeed a Misfire…Its not going to be remembered as SM1 or SM2

  • Finally

    It’s really great to finally read posts on collider that can see through the opinion of the “writer”. Films like TASM which was, for me, entertaining, and much more interesting than the original, shouldn’t be subject to reduntant slamming by the likes of wannabe filmmakers. I liked it, I want to see another, and likely a third. Goldberg can have his opinion, but it shouldn’t taint the article. Just the facts ma’am, please.
