Well, to Movie Marketing V. 3.0 or whatever. While folks like J.J. Abrams continue to aim for at least some surprises when it comes to their films, playing close to the chest for as long as possible, we live in a time where fans want everything right now (see the complaints that Disney didn't reveal anything about "Star Wars: Episode 7" at D23). And the folks at Fox and Sony, and directors Bryan Singer and Marc Webb, are doing their best to placate the diehard audience. As cameras rolled on both "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," tweets, set pics, behind-the-scenes imagery and official images flowed out from both camps. And well, today there's even more.

It seems that every day since it was announced, Marc Webb's “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” has walked a line between misdirection and simple confusion as to which elements to keep. The excision of Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson character was just the latest example, and while Felicity Jones faced rumors that she's playing the Black Cat, it turns out it might be Lily Hollister/Menace instead. But today, another actress has in fact clarified her role in the film, and Webb has hinted at a notorious group's presence in future installments.

So this is going to be the new "thing" for superhero movies now? One isn't enough, so hot on the heels of Joss Whedon's $1 billion-grossing "The Avengers," and whatever Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman team-up movie is going to be called, director Marc Webb, while talking up next summer's 3D web-slinging adventure "Amazing Spider-Man 2," teased that the fourth film (yes, the fourth) in the franchise might be some kind of team-up movie. "It might not just be a Spider-Man movie," Webb told Crave Online. If it's not just a "Spider-Man" movie could we hope that it's also a "Star Trek" movie? Or maybe "Resident Evil?" Just so we can kill two franchise birds with one stone? At the very least it'd make the summer of 2018 go by a little quicker.

Amazing Spider-Man 2
Worried that, like "X-Men: Days Of Too Many Characters," Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is overflowing with too many villains and characters? Well, for one, the producers know this too and they cut out the role of Mary Jane Watson (played by Shailene Woodley) from the film, to save the character for the third film (more on that in a sec). And as for the various villains that could build to the Sinister Six (Of Too Many Antagonists In One Movie), fear not, Webb says Electro (Jamie Foxx) is the focus of the sequel while The Rhino's (played by Paul Giamatti) appearance may be smaller than expected

It might not be much, but these two new teasers for some highly anticipated films should get two different audiences very excited.

Felicity Jones The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Lily Hollister Menace
Up until now, most folks following the development of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" have simply assumed that Felicity Jones -- whose role has been kept under wraps -- is playing Black Cat. This speculation was seemingly "confirmed" last month when the actress neatly dodged a direct question asking if she was indeed playing that character. But we may now have a bit clearer of an answer, as Jones is feeling bit more chatty this month and has gone ahead and revealed her role in the upcoming sequel....almost....

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Jamie Foxx
For a movie that's not coming out for another year (okay, a bit less than that), "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" sure is blowing its load a bit early, dropping all kinds of images online. Are the filmmakers hoping to encourage audiences by letting them know this time around they are actually going to get a whole new and original story? Is it because Comic-Con is next week and this is just a preview to the smorgasbord of stuff that's coming? Our guess is that it's somewhere between the two, so let's just get to it.

We're just over a week away from the San Diego Comic-Con, which will give grown men a free pass to wear Darth Vader costumes in broad daylight without fear of reprisal. And it also means studios are getting ready to open the floodgates on whatever material they have that might appeal to the thronging masses on the conference floor and EW is getting out in front with some stuff to show off.

Welcome to the big time Sarah Gadon. Granted, she kinda already has after bagging the female lead for Universal's "Dracula," but the actress who has recently been cutting her teeth on Cronenberg father/son films ("A Dangerous Method," "Cosmopolis," "Antiviral") is now spinning an even bigger web.

Well, the rumor mill continues to churn today around "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," with the addition of Canadian actress Sarah Gadon. Rumor has it that she's taking the Mary Jane Watson role left vacant by Shailene Woodley after her brief appearance in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was cut, but there's been no official word as of yet. Until then, let's turn our eyes to another piece of intel that's making the nerds talk....
