While Andrew Garfield has at least one more "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie to deal with, Emma Stone is no longer required to square away a big chunk of the year to the franchise, so she's deciding to do some more interesting work instead. With "Magic In The Moonlight" due later this summer, it seems Emma Stone has got on well with Woody Allen, and is ready to work with him again.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Kevin Feige might be the sorcerer supremre of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but when it comes to the "Amazing Spider-Man 2" (and it's own expanding universe), Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are it. Arad is the guy who, back when he ran Marvel, got the comics company back on its feet and started Marvel Studios as a company that could eventually rival any of its Hollywood contemporaries. (It's also worth noting that without his aggressively innovative management, Disney would have never bought Marvel.) Arad now shepherds the crown jewel property that is, as of yet, out of Disney's hands: Spider-Man. Together with Tolmach, Arad's new goal is to rival Marvel's sprawling cinematic landscape, complete with a whole continuum of spin-offs and sequels. We talked about the possibility of multiple cinematic Spider-Men, if the Mary Jane footage will ever see the light of day, and whether or not they see the Spider-universe infecting the small screen too.

Magic In The Moonlight
Set in the 1920s on the French Riviera (wait, why isn't this at Cannes again??), Woody Allen’s 5,0000th film (ok, less), “Magic In The Moonlight,” is a romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. And, of course, personal and professional complications ensue. That’s all we’ve known for several months, but new plot details have emerged along with two new photos from the film.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" opens this weekend in some key overseas territories, including the U.K., and Sony is reportedly hoping to hit the magic $1 billion mark with their sequel. That means, until the movie lands stateside, we're going to be seeing a lot more promo material from the film. So bring it on!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Jamie Foxx
As far as superhero reboots go, "room for improvement" was probably the best way to sum up 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man." Certainly financially, the film made a very healthy $750 million worldwide, but that's still less than any of the three Sam Raimi films that preceded it. And creatively, the film had some strong building blocks—an increased emphasis on romance, a hugely appealing central pairing in Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (plus support from ringers like Sally Field and Martin Sheen), a bright sense of humor, a fresh-ish take on the characters—but a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain meant that there was plenty of opportunity for a sequel to prove itself worth of the title "amazing."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
While you might still be miffed that "The Amazing Spider-Man" told the origin story you already knew, director Marc Webb admits to Rolling Stone he actually turned down a script for the first movie that ditched it altogether. "It was different. It still had the Lizard in it, but it was a script that jumped ahead in time and relied on knowledge of the comic books that I don't think everyone had," he explained to the magazine. "Tonally, it was a little more tongue-in-cheek and glib, and I didn't feel the emotional connection. I just didn't know how else to develop that bond than with an origin story. I feel like it pays off in this movie, because now Andrew Garfield embodies Peter Parker."

Amazing Spider-Man 2
Back in 2012 when "The Amazing Spider-Man" was gearing up to hit theaters, the extent of Sony's marketing plan was revealed when someone went through all the trailers and clips that dropped in advance of the film, and put together a 25-minute reel of footage. So at this point, our only question is by which factor the advance spill of material for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will exceed its predecessor.
