X-Men: Days Of Future Past
They may be from rival studios, and feature a whole host of different characters, but fuck it, we're combining new pics and promo material from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" into one post because you can bet some studio executives are trying to figure out how to crossover the franchises anyway (even if it's logistically impossible given the vying business interests involved).

100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014 (part 2)
Last week we brought you numbers 100-51 of our 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2014. And while we still have several other look-ahead-to-2014 pieces in the works for the coming days, like a Sundance preview, 2014 Films We've Already Seen, and the ever-controversial Will These Films Suck? rundown of potential lowlights, today we get on to the section that really matters--the top 50 2014 films we're looking forward to most. It's a mouthwatering selection that convinces us once again that we collectively have the greatest job in the world, and has us antsy for the January doldrums to get gone, so let's dive straight in, shall we?

How The 'Avengers'-Izing Of Blockbusters Is Killing Movies
Is it enough to just make one movie anymore? In the wake of Marvel’s audacious world-building in an assembly line of completely indistinguishable adventure movies, the studios would answer no. What used to be one series of movies has become a web, one that involves various other series’ and offshoots of one particular brand.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Emma Stone
We hope you like the world of Spider-Man that Sony is building, because you're going to be getting a lot of it over the next five to ten years. With the universe plotted out already to 2018 with the release of "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" (which Andrew Garfield claims to have no part of, LOL, whatever), Sony upped the ante by adding two more to the slate: the long developing "Venom" movie that will now be directed by Alex Kurtzman, and "The Sinister Six," being written by Drew Goddard. With all this planning, you might have forgotten "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is coming next year.

With Warner Bros. bulking up "Batman Vs. Superman" with Wonder Woman, the Marvel-verse continuing to expand like so many waistlines at an all you can eat buffet, it's time for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to level up in the superhero arms race.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Jamie Foxx
In case you haven't noticed, Hollywood is loving blockbusters at the moment. Superheroes, TV shows turned movies, remakes, fairytales — if you've got an idea, they'll listen, and if it's pre-packaged as a possibility to become a series, hell, that's even better. So, is it any wonder that Sony wants to exploit the rights to any Marvel properties they currently have the film rights to?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Today, kind of randomly with only the barest of context, The Times Of India—for reasons of international marketing, we can only surmise—dropped three new photos from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." One is hilarious, one is of a villain and one has Emma Stone in it. Can you guess which one is the funny one?

Ten Onscreen Superheroes With Incredibly Uncomfortable Family Issues
This weekend sees the release of "Thor: The Dark World," which, on the surface, is just another superhero film. But, in fact, it also works as a crystallization as to what makes superheroes tick: family issues. Thor's got to save the universe, but he's also got an obnoxious brother gumming up the works, and he can never agree with his father, who is also a King. To rub it in, the sequel also seems to suggest that Mom likes Loki better. Things just aren't going Thor's way!

You might not realize it, but composer Hans Zimmer and producer/rapper/entrepreneur Pharrell Williams have a bit of an unlikely musical bromance. The pair not only teamed up for the music of the 2012 Oscar telecast, but have worked together on two films: Zimmer produced the soundtrack for "Despicable Me," which Pharrell wrote the tunes for, while Pharrell was part of the drum orchestra on "Man Of Steel," which Zimmer composed. And now another superhero is bringing them together.
