Disney XD Brings Back Spider-Man and the Avengers for New Season

If you just can’t get enough of all things Marvel, and if the lack of crossover between the Spider-Man and Avengers movies (for obvious reasons) has left a bitter taste in your mouth, you will be glad to know that Disney XD will at least bring both franchises to your TV screens, albeit not in the same show.

Sony Developing a New Animated Feature for Spider-Man

By now, you’ve most likely heard about the recent incident where a group of hackers managed to compromise Sony’s private data, leading to the release of tons of confidential data.

However, it can’t be denied that it has received a lot of criticism due to its rather disjointed narrative, which many consider as being responsible for destroying the flow of the story. During an interview with The Daily Beast, star Andrew Garfield sort of acknowledged and addressed the criticisms, ...

Sony Co-Chair Hints at Future Spin-Off Films for Spider-Man

With comic book movie adaptations being the flavor of the month (or decade, considering how long it’s been going on), it’s no surprise that Sony already has two sequels to The Amazing Spider-Man in the pipeline. After all, they probably learned their lesson from Fox’s mistake of letting several of their licenses to Marvel properties lapse. However, what’s interesting is ...
