Spierman 4 Mary Jane Will Be Back

It is official, Sony executive Todd Black spoke to the New York Post and confirmed that Kristen Dunst is signed on to return as Mary Jane in Spiderman 4.  For better or worse, Dunst will be returning. While I don’t think that she was the best original choice for the role, I am happy to see that the cast is staying constant in Raimi’s Spiderman universe. Nothing is more distracting for me as a viewer than having roles recast in film sequels. By the time I accept them in the role, the film is over and they have already been recast in the next one.

We’ve speculated about possible Spiderman 4 villains in the past, but now we have something to work with (well, not much actually).  Black told the Post, “We’re just coming up with who the villain’s going to be now. We’ll be shooting in New York again. Trust me, people will appreciate who we pick, because it’ll be a big part of New York.” What would be cooler than seeing the Vulture flying around and terrorizing New York City? Sure, that quote can apply to ANY Spiderman villain (Black knows that Spidy has been located in NY for his entire history, right?), but no one else would give the filmmakers a chance to show it in such a beautiful/soring way. I get chills just thinking about it.

What about you, who do you think Spiderman will be facing off against?

Amazing Spider-Man 588

Written by Marc Guggenheim with art by John Romita Jr., “Character Assassination” reaches its conclusion. The Menace and Spider-Tracer killer storylines introduced with Spider-Man’s Brand New Day come to a head.

I HATED the idea behind Brand New Day, and I really wanted to hate the series, but I have to admit that I’ve enjoyed Amazing Spider-Man since the “restart”. And I’m looking forward to seeing the resolution and fallout from Menace. The new issue came out today…

Cover for issue 584 of Amazing Spider-Man

It has been a year since “Brand New Day” turned back the clock on Spider-Man, and we’re finally coming to a head on a lot of the story lines that developed since the status quote change. The New York Mayor election will be decided and the mystery behind the Spider-Tracer Killings and the identity of Menace will be revealed!  The issue is written by Marc Guggenheim with art by John Romita Jr.

It’ll be hitting stands on January 21, 2009.

This week, Marvel Comics brings us Amazing Spider-Man #575, the first part of “Family Ties”.  Written by Joe Kelly with art/cover by Chris Bachalo, the story sees the return of Hammerhead, a classic Spider-Man villain.

Marvel’s official description of the issue:  As the Mayoral election ramps up, gang activity is at an all time high…and Mr. Negative’s newest enforcer, HAMMERHEAD, works to bring all the gangs under one banner…or else. With some of the kids from Aunt May’s F.E.A.S.T. center caught in the crossfire, Spidey stands up to his old foe…but Hammerhead’s got some new tricks and even Spider-Man can’t stop him this time as Joe Kelly (Deadpool) and Chris Bachalo (Uncanny X-Men) bring you FAMILY TIES!

Secret Invasion #7, Marvel’s penultimate issue of their universe spanning Skull invasion was released today.  The issue was written by Brian Michael Bendis with pencils by Leinil Francis Yu.

Marvel Comics’ official description: “THIS IS IT!! The Marvel Universe versus the Skrull Empire – a battle of unity and spirit the likes of which the Earth has never seen. The comic event of the year starts its shocking conclusion.”

Personally, I’m waiting for the story in trade paperback.  After Civil War, I soured on waiting for months between cliffhanger issues and would prefer to read it all together.

Spiderman Meets Stephen Colbert

While Stephen Colbert might be one of the funniest men on TV in our world, in the Marvel Comics Universe Colbert is running for president.  But before he can make it to the election, he’ll have to team up with the amazing Spider-Man… to save the world? Face off with Venom? The Green Goblin?

Okay, so we have no idea what Colbert and Spider-Man will be teaming up for, but we know when and where it will be, October 15th in “The Amazing Spider-Man #573”. The special 8 page story is by Mark Waid and Pat Olliffe.

What does this mean for Colbert’s bid for the Presidency in the Marvel Universe? We’ll have to read and find out!
