Five Reasons To Love ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ 

Published

on

Back in 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened into theaters with a mixed reception from critics and audiences and has been deemed as the least desirable of the Spidey movies. In the film, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) must face off against another villain who has been given the name Electro. Moreover, our brave hero uncovers some bizarre mysteries surrounding his parents.

Many fans of the series view the film as an overcrowded mess, but I think it might be the most entertaining of all the Spidey films, until No Way Home arrived, and here are five reasons why that remains true.

First and foremost, Garfield is always a delight to have in the Spidey outfit. His charisma and witty banter is almost what makes the film truly great. I have always said that he was the best Spider-Man and this movie proves it with his ability to elevate any scene from dull slog to a comedic venture. 

Spidey, in this particular movie, embodies the hero in the original comics with his incessant need to make a fast-talking quip to one of his enemies. There is nothing better than a comic-book character sticking true to his essence and spirit of its source material.

Electro

Despite what many people say about the villains, Jamie Foxx as the supercharged baddie Electro proves to be a formidable opponent for the web-head, with his omnipotent powers and overly-powered nature. More than that, Max Dillon is depicted as a quiet, shy loner who is invisible to other people. He is essentially a nobody, until he falls into a vat of electrically-charged eels and becomes the sinister villain Electro. 

To better understand a villain, you must understand their plight and Electro’s plight is that of a rags-to-riches success story and the visual effects are certainly something to marvel at. 

Action Sequences

This article wouldn’t be complete if I decided not to talk about the exhilarating action that embodied the film. Whether we see Spidey chasing down a truck with Oscorp’s product or a massive fight inside a grid that seems like a colossal feat for any Marvel film, the film can take a lot of pride in its action sequences. 

One can also never forget the massive and iconic battle sequence between Electro and Spidey in Time Square that seems impossible to be made. 

Green Goblin

While he remains a secondary villain, Dane Dehaan’s Green Goblin is still noteworthy. Dehaan portrays Harry Osborne who is left with his dead father Norman’s life work and stumbles upon a Goblin serum that enhances his speed, strength, and intelligence. 

His little spat with Spider-Man is certainly befitting for the dark, moody tone of the film and entertaining for plenty of comic fans with zippy action and certified intensity. In the end, he is also responsible for the death of Spidey’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy.

Speaking of Gwen Stacy, this is the only Spidey film that features his love interest dying. As he battles the Green Goblin, Spidey attempts to hold on to Stacy, literally, by a thread in the clocktower. However, when the thread snaps, Spidey is able to snag her in mid-air but the whiplash of the fall snaps her neck, killing her. 

What might be the saddest moment in any Spider-Man film, was brought to life in this extraordinary scene that silenced an entire generation of Spider-Man fans.

Michael Gandolfini Cast in Disney+ Series, ‘Daredevil: Born Again’

Published

on

WandaVision was not the first Marvel show under the guise of Kevin Feige that was released. Daredevil set up a seemingly separate television universe for Marvel properties and characters on Netflix that fans and critics alike fawned over. The series starring Charlie Cox as Daredevil/Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin/Wilson Fisk is beloved by many, so much so, that those characters have now shown up in separate Disney+ streaming series as well. 

Back at this past year’s Comic-Con, it was announced that an 18-episode series, Daredevil: Born Again would be headed to Disney+ with Cox and D’onofrio reprising their roles. Now, we have news on some new cast members being brought to the show. According to Deadline, Michael Gandolfini (The Many Saints of Newark, Cherry) is set to join the cast of Daredevil: Born Again which will release on Disney+ in Spring 2024.

There are no details on who Gandolfini will be playing in the series, but some have speculated he may be replacing Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson on the show, while Deadline reports it’s possible that he plays a character named “Liam” from Staten Island. However, his character has been said to be a “major” one for the show so keep that in mind. This will be most likely be Gandolfini’s biggest part since portraying his late father, James Gandolfini’s iconic character of Tony Soprano in the prequel film, The Many Saints of Newark, which follows young Tony navigating New Jersey and the gangster scene years after he becomes the legendary crime boss from the HBO series, The Sopranos.

Daredevil: Born Again is written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs). Gandolfini will next appear in the anthology series, Extrapolations for AppleTV+ alongside an ensemble cast that also includes Tobey Maguire, Forest Whitaker and Marion Cotillard among many others. Additionally, he’ll also appear in Ari Aster’s upcoming film, Disappointment Blvd. due to release in 2023.
