New Amazing Spider-Man Video feat The Lizard

The recent teaser trailers and clips for Marc Webb’s reboot of the Spider-Man film franchise failed (probably intentionally, in order to add a certain amount of mystique to the character) to provide us with a decent look at the movie’s antagonist, The Lizard, and while this new video still doesn’t show what the monster looks like, it does provide a little bit of backstory behind Dr. Curt Connors, who was the man who eventually turned into the green-skinned Lizard.

Spider-Man was the first animated adaptation of the Spider-Man comic book series, created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko (first seen in Amazing Fantasy #15, August 1962). Season 1 contained mostly stories involving classic Spider-Man villains from the comic book series, who, when caught in Spider-Man’s web, were left for the Police to find, along with a note signed, “Courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.” Stan Lee, who created the character, served as story consultant for the first season of the show.

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel set for theaters May 2, 2014

Even though we’re still a full year away from the SpiderMan relaunch, which officially begins with The Amazing Spider-Man on July 3rd 2012, Sony is already hard at work on the film’s sequel! The rebooting franchise will have a second movie in theaters just about 20 months later, when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spins a web on May 2nd, 2014. James Vanderbilt will craft the sequel, just as he has the first movie, and Andrew Garfield will swing along, as well. Other than that, not much more is known about the sequel at this time – which seems about right, because there’s not that much information on the first film yet!

Comic-Con is always a big event, but 2011 brought out some big …webs!

Transformers: Dark of the Moon sets July 4th record

Transformers: Dark of the Moon sets July 4th record

There’s just something magical about the mix of Transformers and the July 4th holiday! In addition to the marathon on the Hub, and ToonBarn’s own Transformers Headmasters DVD giveaway, the newest sequel in the Transformers movie franchise absolutely dominated theaters this past weekend. The film pulled in just shy of 100 million during the regular weekend, and has raked in 162 million since opening in the middle of last week, setting all kinds of records, including the top opener for a July 4th holiday weekend, knocking Spider-Man 2 out of the top spot. With monster numbers like that, it’s likely you’ll have a number of weeks to see Transformers 3 in theaters, again and again, in 3D and 2D.
