The Amazing Spider-Man is in some trouble...

Preview: Amazing Spider-Man #570


While we have no idea who Spider-Man will face in his 4th and 5th films, he is up against some major trouble in the comics!

After recent bouts with new villains such as Menace, Screwball, and Freak, Spider-Man will now have his hands full with his old school gallery when he faces the Green Goblin (Norman Osborn), Venom (now Mac Gargan, the former Scorpion), Bullseye, and Eddie Brock, who is now the Anti-Venom.

The Lizard vs Spiderman

We can all have a collective sigh of relief, Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire have signed on to Spider-Man 4 and 5! With them on board, it’ll only be a matter of time before Kristen Dunst signs on the dotted line.  Bryce Dallas Howard is ready to go back to work as Gwen Stacey, and I think we can assume J.K. Simmons, Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi will be back to steal scenes. The only big question mark is who will Spider-man face in the film? Villains like Man-Wolf and Carnage have been set up in earlier films, but I doubt we’ll see either of them. Who would I like to see Spider-Man take on? Read on for my thoughts.

Will Angelina Jolie be Catwoman in Batman 3?

“I think that this franchise has shown that it doesn’t have to bring back characters. I mean, there’s still Catwoman. I’ve heard Angelina Jolie really wants to do Catwoman; I think that’s a fantastic idea. I’ll be a happy audience member this time.”

AICN’s Beaks talked to Aaron Eckhart at the press junket for Alan Ball’s “Towelhead” and he had some very interesting things to say about both his character Harvey Dent/Two-Face and some possible details on the next Batman film.Have you heard that Angelina Jolie wants to be Catwoman in Nolan’s next Batman film? Because I hadn’t heard that. Sounds like some insider info to me. And while I absolutely hate Jolie, I think she is perfect for the hooker turned criminal turned crimefighter who wears some very tight spandex.

Read the rest of the mini interview for all of Eckhart’s comments here (spoilers for “The Dark Knight”).

If you haven’t watched “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” yet, then you should drop everything and go watch it now! Then come back here so I can tell you about “Captain Hammer: Be like me! Nemesis of Dr. Horrible!”, a short online comic book from Dark Horse Comics. The comic features non other than Joss Whedon’s Captain Hammer, a hero that thinks he’s SUPER (with of course an appearance by Dr. Horrible himself).

The comic was penned by Zack Whedon with art by Eric Canete. You can read it here.

G4 Network talked to Mark Millar about his new graphic novel “War Heroes”, the film adaptation of his ongoing series “Kick-Ass” by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust), and his proposed “Superman” film trilogy that he has pitched to the WB with an unknown director. The interview then talks to “War Heroes” artist Tony Harris about the upcoming book.

The “Superman” info comes in at around the 5 minute mark, and I gotta say, it sounds really interesting. The idea of a 7 hour epic “Superman” story broken up among 3 films and shot back to back to be released every year sounds like a dream come true. Millar thinks he’ll be getting word if the WB wants to go with his proposed project within two to three weeks and ideally they would shoot next summer.
