The Amazing Spider-Man 2
You almost feel bad for Sony at this point. The studio's relaunch of everyone's favorite webslinger has gone poorly, trailing the Sam Raimi films both commercially and critically, and the fanboys have delivered a thumbs down verdict. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is a mess of a movie that managed to be both overstuffed and underdeveloped, earning the least amount of money of any Spider-Man movie to date. Sony has now been forced to push "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" to 2018, to move "Sinister Six" up 2016, and to quietly take "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" off the calendar. But there is still product to sell, so they've turned to the ever enthusiastic Stan Lee to pitch you on the Collector's Edition of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
If it seems like we're getting deluged by "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" over a month before it opens, you might be forgetting that the film is slated to open overseas a full two weeks before it drops here. That's right, every four years, the World Cup wreaks havoc with movie scheduling as studios don't want their big tentpoles opening during the frame when everyone around the globe will be glued to their TVs watching the action unfold on the pitch.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Release Stan Lee! We're sure someone in the Sony marketing department made that command as the promotional train for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" continues relentlessly, with more more more more, and then hoping that by time the movie comes around, you're beaten into submission to buy tickets for the web-slinging sequel.

Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be any superhero movie news, or even any more weekends between now and 2024 without a superhero flick scheduled for release...comes news of two more spandex-scented projects (sort of).

With the ever expanding Marvel universe continuing to grow at a rapid rate -- next week sees the launch of "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." while an "Agent Carter" series is currently in the works -- and Phase Two already mapped out, attention and speculation is now being turned to Phase Three, and what heroes the comic studio will bring next to the big screen.

As sure as the sun rises and sets and the taxman comes for your money every year, a movie based on a Marvel property will invariably feature Stan Lee winking at the camera at some point. And some brave soul has compiled all his appearances, starting with a movie no one remembers from 1989.

Few figures in comic book lore command the attention and devotion of Stan Lee. Now in his late eighties, with a grey-white caterpillar of a moustache perpetually perched atop his upper lip and oversized, dark-tinted glasses, he’s an easily identifiable character, as iconic as one of his pop culture creations (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and the X-Men, to name a few), and just as important. But many don’t know the story behind the man. “With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story,” a zippy and somewhat superficial documentary, attempts to fill in some of that backstory, and the result is as compulsively entertaining and colorful as any Marvel comic book. Excelsior!

While "Spider-Man" might be getting a reboot with a new director, a younger cast and a fresh story, it looks like some habits are just too tough to give up on. Stan Lee is set to pop up in yet another Marvel movie for the five people who still get excited by spotting his well-groomed face dodging some debris or selling a hot dog. The comic icon hit Twitter over the weekend to announce the news.
