    Amazing Spider-Man Franchise is Spinning Off Venom and Sinister Six Movies!

    Too many villains in a superhero movie is an almost guaranteed way to ruin it, but what if you make the villains the center of the story? That's what Sony is doing with the announcement that The Sinister Six are getting their own film, and so is Venom.

    We’ve Finally Gotten The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer and It Is Kinda Bonkers

    It's about time that we're getting an actual look at the sequel to the 2012 Spider-Man reboot, but this sure isn't what we were expecting.

    This weekend, Spike TV ran the Video Game Awards. All in all it was a pretty tepid affair, but it did give studios a chance to show off their forthcoming titles with a slew of exclusive trailers. We gathered all of them up and were just going to present them to you, gentle reader, but the embedded videos looked so lonely there, and we figured we were as qualified as anyone to have opinions on the Internet, so we added our compressed thoughts about each trailer into a single sentence.
