Norman, OK
I was somewhat underwhelmed by the movie. It was too slow to me and two fast at the same time. It plods along with the mundane for a while then the villains seemed rushed and shortchanged. To me it seemed like it was a month in the life of Spiderman and then suddenly the realize they are about to end the movie and better tack on some villains and set things up for the next movie.

Is The Sinister Six Movie Cancelled?
Going into the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony seemed to be extremely confident about their Marvel Comics future. In fact, they were so confident that they bared their ambitions possibly a little too much by announcing two more Amazing Spider Man sequels, as well as Venom and Sinister Six spin-off films in the near future. However, once The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released to a less than amazing film market, Sony's plans started to change rather quickly. First, there was word that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being moved back in favor of Sinister Six. Now, someone out there thinks that the future of the Sinister Six is finished before it even started.

That someone, unsurprisingly, is Umberto Gonzalez (aka "El Mayimbe") of Latino Review fame. Just when you thought Sony was safe, Mr. Gonzalez tweeted the following out to the world this morning, with little to no explanation: Umberto Gonzalez @elmayimbe

RIP SINISTER SIX
10:43 AM - 19 Jul 2014

That's a pretty bold statement. So what does Mr. Gonzalez have to back up his egregious claim that the Sinister Six are going to be covered in cobwebs? Nothing yet. Absolutely nothing else on his recent Twitter feed refers to the project, nor does he address the multitude of followers asking for further information. The tweet went out, the mic was dropped, and that's all he wrote.But then, you look at the behavior of the Marvel Universe outside of the Marvel Studios nucleus. After all, Michael B. Jordan was recently reported as saying that The Fantastic Four is being changed "on the fly," and even Marvel Sony collaborator Alex Kurtzman seems to be vague about just what's going on in the post Amazing Spider-Man 2 world of Sony. There's a lot of troubling things that seem to be brewing at the two houses that are pitting Marvel franchises against their own family, and it's fair to say that the climate is an uncertain one.Marvel Studios has been as busy as Marvel Comics has been with shaping its universe. With this strong example acting in the market, Marvel Sony and Marvel Fox seem to be lagging way behind by comparison, and without a strong game plan. Could Umberto Gonzalez's tweet be a sign of things to come? It's even money at this point. While his tweet wasn't a stone cold lock of the century, it is a sign that even industry reporters are starting to wonder just how the outer rings of the Marvel Universe are going to cope with the devastating competition that Marvel Studios is waging against opposing forces from outside (such as DC Comics) and within.Here's hoping we still get that sweet sounding Sinister Six movie, which is currently unscheduled for release.

Five Actors Who Can Replace Andrew Garfield In The Next Spider-Man Film--Report http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/5762...arfield-peter-parker-amazing.htm#.VJIonXs8tEJ
The buzz has it that Andrew Garfield has been booted out from the "Spider-Man" series. The recently hacked Sony emails have reportedly revealed that Marvel may take over the popular franchise and may decide to cast new actor for the titular role. There is a major speculation as to who will play Peter Parker, when the popular franchise will return to the screen. Comicbook has shortlisted five actors who can replace Garfield as Spiderman in "The Amazing Spider-Man 3." Lets take a look.Anton Yelchin is the first choice for the role of Parker. Best known for his role in "Star Trek," the actor reportedly possesses some brilliant acting skills. He rose to fame with the Steven Spielberg miniseries "Taken." He played the popular role of Jacob Clarke in the series. According to the website's report Yelchin is just 25-year-old and his boyish charm may come handy while playing the younger version of Spidey.Robbie Amell is known for playing Firestorm on the "The Flash." Though the chances of him playing the full-fledged superhero character on big screen are less, his gaunt look can work in his favour. He will reportedly look nice as the college going Peter Parker. Moreover, he is as charming as Toby Maguire.Ansel Elgort has proved his acting prowess by playing a cancer patient in the popular teenage film "The Fault in our Stars." The actor is already riding high on the popularity charts and his boyish charm would be an added advantage. Toby Magurie could very well step back into the shoes of Spiderman, reports Russ Burlingame of Comic Book. The actor is a known face, when it comes to Spiderman movies and he knows the character in and out. His return to the series will also drive casual fans interest.Drake Bell is the solid choice for Spider-Man. Even Frederick Crew of Movie Pilot thinks that he is cut out for the role as he already voices Spiderman/ Peter Parker on the "Ultimate Spider-Man" cartoon. If reports are to be believed than Marvel wants a "clean slate," and Bell could very well be their new Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield Out, Tobey Maguire Back As Peter Parker In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' -- Report http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/5762...pider-man-3-peter-parker-actor.htm#.VJRShf_AA
The recent Sony Pictures hack revealed Marvel and Sony's plans of a third sequel for "The Amazing Spider-Man." However, producers made it clear that they'd want a fresh start for the movie, where it doesn't focus on the romance as the main story but to have it as a side-story instead. Ultimately, it would also mean a change of actor to play the title role aside from Andrew Garfield.Currently scheduled for a U.S. release in 2018, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" could probably look into five actors befitting the role. According to Comicbook's Russ Burlingame these possible candidates include "Star Trek" actor Anton Yelchin, "The Flash" star Robbie Amell, "Divergent" actor Ansel Elgort, "Ultimate Spider-Man" mainstay Drake Bell and lastly the original Peter Parker Tobey Maguire.When Sony's Jeff Robinov told Amy Pascal that he wants "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" to be a clean slate and to start off with an aged Peter Parker, Burlingame thought why not bring back Tobey Maguire. Burlingame assumes having the actor to portray the role again after 20 years would "drive a ton of interest from casual fans." Likewise, it would supposedly be interesting to see if Maguire can still be compelling as the Spider-Man.
