Will Spider-Man join the Avengers on screen? That's a tangled web ...


Remember when you were a kid and you liked somebody, but you weren’t comfortable asking that person out? So you told a few friends, and maybe they told the friends of the girl or guy you like, and those emissaries determined whether there was mutual interest. If it’s an affirmative, an actual overture could be made without fear of humiliation on either front. If one side isn’t interested, however, the other can safely deny involvement.

The same thing happens at the corporate level. See, for example, the world of Spider-Man, where delicate preliminary conversations between Sony Pictures (which owns the cinematic license on the character) and Marvel Studios (which would like its webslinger back, now that it has its own massively successful string of superhero pictures) are underway.

Will Spidey be joining Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Black Widow on the big screen in the near future? No. Sources on both sides confirm that much. But a few years from now… that’s a possibility, at least according to EW’s sources. (Official reps for the two studios both declined to  comment.)

But that’s the extent of it: possibility. There are several variables that need to play out before anything concrete happens. Here are the facts as we hear them from several well-placed sources:

'X-Men: Days of Future Past': See the post-credit Mystique sequence from 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- VIDEO


If you stayed past the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this weekend, you may have gotten a peek at this summer’s highly-anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. In this brief sequence, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) helps save some fellow mutants, including Toad and Havoc, escape a military base.

It’s a moment that showcases a different mutant than we saw in X-Men: First Class and, according to screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg, is representative of her arc in Days of Future Past. Teases Kinberg, “Is she going to remain the good, conscious human that Charles raised at the end of X-Men: First Class, or is she going to become the cold blooded assassin that we know from [the first] X-Men?”

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': Watch Spidey meet the man who will be Electro


Stopping crime? Warding off evil? Saving the human race? It’s just another day on the job for Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.

But while Spidey spends most of his days keeping the good citizens of New York out of harm’s way, this particular meeting is a little different — namely because it involves an Oscorp employee named Max (Jamie Foxx) who will become significant in Spider-Man’s life later on. READ FULL STORY

Going Green Goblin: How Dane DeHaan got into character for 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

As we inch closer to the May 2 release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we’re learning more about the bad guys Spider-Man will face—like Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, a.k.a. Green Goblin. Harry and Peter Parker were childhood friends before Harry left for boarding school. Harry returns to New York to discover that his father, Oscrop’s Norman Osborn, is terminally ill and his son is about to inherit more than just the family business. “It’s a complicated storyline,” DeHaan tells EW. “But to boil it down: This is the origin story for Harry Osborn becoming Green Goblin.”

Making the physical transformation from Harry to Green Goblin wasn’t easy, but the process did help the actor get into the right mindset: “When you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re in the suit and full-on Goblin makeup? You feel like a badass,” says DeHaan. “I look at myself and think, ‘Hell, yeah, I’m the Green Goblin! Let’s go do this.’”

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' at the MTV Movie Awards: Electro versus Spider-Man

Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, and Jamie Foxx introduced a new clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.

The only problem was — Garfield had it on his computer, but he forgot his password. Luckily, they called in the Geek Squad.

Guess who moonlights as a computer technician for extra cash? Conan O’Brien, of course. He showed up to help Garfield remember his password (“Harry Styles Makes Me Smile”).

Inside 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- And Sony's strategy to supersize its franchise

This appeared in the April 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly.

WITH GREAT MARKETING comes great responsibility. In December, Sony released its first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — the idea, as always, being to spill exactly the right number of secrets and not half a secret more. “I was nervous about it,” says director Marc Webb. “But we wanted to raise the stakes. We want people to appreciate the scope of what’s to come both in this movie and in subsequent films.” So fans saw their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) swinging exuberantly between the gleaming skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. They saw him verbally sparring with his love, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and facing down evil in the sparkling blue form of Electro (Jamie Foxx). Spi-hards also got the briefest glimpse of two other famous foes, Rhino and the Green Goblin. And, in a tease that elevated the trailer from a pretty good ad for a movie to a document that fans studied with Zapruder-like intensity, they saw Vulture’s signature wings encased in glass at Oscorp, and wait, were those the long, telltale mechanical arms of Doc Ock?


'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': But what's going to happen to Gwen Stacy?

One of the best parts of The Amazing Spider-Man movies has nothing to do with big-budget effects or web swinging. The scenes between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) bring a kind of giddy magic that effortlessly charms all who watch them. “That relationship is the engine of the movie,” says director Marc Webb. “It’s what holds it together.”

But then what happens if — as has been widely speculated for close to a year — Gwen Stacy doesn’t live on to see The Amazing Spider-Man 3? Last June, Spi-hards’ heads collectively exploded when photos surfaced of Stone wearing a costume similar to the one her character wears in the pivotal comic from 1973 better known as “The Night Gwen Stacy Died.”

No one involved in the film will confirm or deny what will happen, but Stone was bothered by the chatter. “I was really upset,” she says. “I feel hyper protective over the secrecy of what happens to Gwen. I was like, ‘Why did we shoot out on the street?’ I was upset for a day and then I realized there’s nothing else we can do. There’s stuff out there.”

But, the actress cautions, “There are things that I know about that haven’t been seen yet. There are also things that people are speculating on that I know aren’t true.” She laughs. “There will be surprises.”

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Witness the new Green Goblin -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE!

For a long time, the word on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was that it would pit Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker against Jamie Foxx’s Electro. But over the last few months, Sony has carefully shown its hand, revealing that Electro’s not the only bad guy tormenting the wondrous wall-crawler. In fact, as EW’s Sara Vilkomerson reveals in this week’s cover storyAmazing 2 was conceived as the franchise’s expansion point, bringing in a whole host of characters and world-buildy concepts with an eye toward future films. And surely no character will resonate more with anyone aware of Spidey history than Harry Osborn — who, as played by Dane DeHaan, will become Spider Enemy Number One, the nefarious Green Goblin.

Now, EW is excited to share with you the first close-up picture of Amazing‘s Green Goblin, which takes the character in a decidedly different aesthetic direction than the original trilogy. For one thing, this Goblin doesn’t just wear green. That’s his skin, breaking out in what looks like the nastiest case of Goblin-itis this side of Middle-Earth.

The newest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 shows off more of Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn. A lot more. It’s been interesting to see how the marketing for the movie has gradually shifted. This time last year, we all thought this was the Electro movie — but to look at this trailer, it looks an awful lot more like a Green Goblin movie. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
