The wall crawler’s reboot now has an official title, in The Amazing Spider-Man. Makes sense to name it after Spidey’s longest running comic series. I suppose the sequels will be Spectacular and Sensational, or maybe even Web Of.
The photo below is apparently of actor Andrew Garfield in costume. The film opens in 3D on July 3 2012.
On to superheroes of the small screen now and Superboy will be making his debut on Smallville’s last season. That’s a surprising character to have appear on the show, considering the character, known as Conn0r Kent (a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor) didn’t appear in the comics until after Superman’s 1992 death.
On a more light hearted note, though not for Marvel and DC’s lawyers, here’s a video from the Indonesian made TV movie, Supergirl, starring an actress in a Spider-Woman costume. They could’ve just given the heroine a new name and costume, but I admire their boldness, if not their flying SFX.
