The Death of Spider-Man Motion Comic Fan Film

From Andrew Bates aka Peter Parker: A bunch of my very talented geek friends and I thought it would be fun to bring to life the “Death of Spider-Man” storyline from Marvel’s Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man as a digital motion comic! It’s such a heart-wrenching tale that exemplifies the heroism, bravery, love, and sense of responsibility of one 16-year-old boy who wouldn’t give up. A lot of very talented people put a lot of work into this labor of love and I’m so proud to have worked with them!! For more details, visit for info on the cast, crew, and project itself!

Written by Jon Negroni, the author of The Pixar Theory, an award-winning theory about how all of the Pixar movies exist in the same universe and tell one, cohesive story. Yeah, it’s about as ridiculous as it sounds.

  1. I’ve told a lot of my geek friends about the Pixar Theory. Glad to see we can add another chapter.

    • Yeah, that one made a lot of sense.

      • I saw the Pixar theory before and I thought that they had debunked it.

        • Not heard if it was debunked but the Andy’s Mom Theory is pretty cool, like I said.

  2. Best part of that Toy Story article is the comments section. lmao

  3. that whole Andy’s mom “theory” is just that a THEORY. Sounds like a whole lot of speculation and zero truth. Conspiracy Theorists.

    • Wait, so further down the article, they implicate Any’s mom in the JFK shooting too? Damn, I wish I’d known there was more.

      But no, while it is just a theory, you have to admit, it makes a lot of sense. The third movie was all about hand-me-downs so why wouldn’t she have passed on something to Andy during his cowboy phase?

      My mother used to have a big Womble stuffed toy in her childhood in the 70s and passed it to me in my early youth in the mid-late 80s, likewise I passed some of my late 80s WWF action figures and early 90s Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat action figures to my brother in the late 90s.

      There’s something kind of sweet about that theory plus, as I said, it makes a lot of sense and I wouldn’t be surprised if Pixar noticed the resemblance in hats and added something to the third movie to play with it a little and leave eagle eyed viewers with something more.

      • true. i gave my son a Gizmo stuffed animal had when I was little

  4. Not going to lie, the ending of The Grey completely ruined it for me. I’m all for movies with ambiguous endings (like The Thing), but with the Grey it was more like “we don’t know how to end this movie, so let’s just cut it right at the start of the fight for dramatic effect”. My biggest problem was that they showed that final scene IN THE TRAILER, the final standoff between Liam Neeson and the wolf was what the whole movie was building up to, ending it at that moment was a total cop out.

  5. That sure is an awesome Ramis tribute

  6. Why is L M A O moderated?? W T F is going on in this world?? F!@#$%K&*,
