New ‘Wolverine’ and ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Set Images

1 year ago by  

Both this summer’s The Wolverine and next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 aim to keep momentum going and build on the good will towards the most recent installment in each superhero comic book movie franchise - X-Men: First Class and The Amazing Spider-Man, which (respectively) came after disappointed reactions to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and lukewarm reception for Spider-Man 3.

Today we can offer you behind-the-scenes photos for Wolverine, which were made available through Twitter by the film’s director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) and feature locations and characters from the full Wolverine trailer. Meanwhile, the Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb continues his one-man quest to chronicle the entirety of production on the ASM sequel through Tweets, by unveiling yet another image.

The Wolverine

The film begins with Logan (Hugh Jackman) having gone back to his drifter lifestyle – after the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) during X-Men: The Last Stand - before it takes our favorite self-healing, clawed mutant to Japan, where he meets a powerful, but dying old man who wishes to repay Logan for saving his life back in WWII by giving him the “gift” of mortality (which, of course, comes with a price).

The general outlook for Wolverine seems to be cautious optimism, following the formal beginning of Fox’s marketing blitz and trailer release for Mangold’s X-Men installment. If nothing else, those who remain invested in this franchise ought to hope this serves as a good bridge linking the previous installments to next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past – where the present-day trilogy and First Class timelines will collide in what should be the craziest X-Men movie to date (and maybe even the best, if all goes according to plan).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Webb has Tweeted many images from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 set by this point, which include everything from cameo appearances by well-known character actors to sneak peeks at famous locations from the Spider-Man comic books that will appear in the sequel, and different versions of Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) new web-slinging costume.

We’re still waiting to find out what, exactly, the antagonist Electro (Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx) looks like in Amazing Spider-Man 2, but in the meantime Webb has released a photo teasing the destruction and collateral damage he creates on the streets of New York.

Foxx has indicated before that Electro’s costume in the film will bear a strong resemblance to the character’s appearance from the “Ultimate Spider-Man” comic book continuity, in keeping with the tendency for the Amazing Spider-Man movie series to draw from that contemporary rendition of Pete’s superhero adventures.

There’s still plenty of material waiting to be revealed from the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, including the looks for Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn and Paul Giamatti as Rhino; not to mention, more information about how much screen time all these antagonists will get in a movie that also introduces Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) into the mix.

Comic-Con 2013, anyone?

  1. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz….mphhh…whah?….oh yeah, wow….zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    :)

  2. hmmm nothing interesting

  3. Meh………..

  4. Fox and Sony don’t screw around when its comes to making these two franchises. They will never let Marvel get the rights back on both. AS2 got into production very fast, as did Days of Future Past. No way in hell either studio would allow any delays that could eventually lead to Marvel/Disney getting Spider-Man and X-Men film rights.

    • Plus, we don’t want that either…Marvel is making good movies, but nothing special though. For example, I prefer First Class more than any of the Marvel movies…even Avengers…

      • ^^ said no one ever. First Class doesn’t deserve to be called am X-Men film.

        • Says you, and just you. First Class was awesome. At least according to most people who saw it. Not perfect, but darn good.

          • So, a rushed movie which in no way follows any of the comics and spits in the face of everything established before it was good? Interesting…

            • I hear what you’re saying, and those things definitely bumped the movie down a notch for me, but I agree with acathla that it was still good. Although I did prefer Captain America to it and Thor that summer.

              • I’m just being critical. Black Ops Magneto was pretty wicked. It was a good movie, it just needed A LOT of refining which they had no time for.

  5. Does anybody else see a face or faces on the hood of a car in TASM2 picture. It looks like one to me, or even possibly a few.

  6. http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/i541934-8/the-amazing-spider-man-2-rolling-gallery-andrew-garfield.html#a472134

    Umm, they have a lot of set photos from ASM2. They even have one that shows something along the lines of a close-up of his new web-shooters.

  7. Well so much for the usual teasy teasy. These images are so boring, I can’t believe they even justified an article. I noticed that most of the front page articles are now TV related, and when they do cover movies, we get this?
    Wow. The movie business, worldwide, must be slumping something fierce. The Federal Reserve must be in on this one, too.

  8. Whoever made the list of “most offensive movie characters” obviously made the list in an attempt to look good in the eyes of those who are offended and not from any truly critical point for the movie. Many of these movies and characters were done in an over the top fashion while others were complete and utter creations (the Star Wars characters) which were amazing by the way. The next time you watch a movie, how about you grab some popcorn and a drink, sit down and try to enjoy it for what it is rather than see things that dont exist.
