Thor The Dark World was touched by Whedon

Thor The Dark World Poster

According to Alan Taylor director of the new Thor movie, Joss Whedon was "airlifted in" like some kind of comicdom SWAT team to rewrite a few scenes that "weren't working". Joss is kind of like a comic book geek senator. He gets in there and makes sure our geekiest interests are represented. Plus he's got the writing chops to make sure it also doesn't, you know, plain suck for everyone else. And thank god for that.

Spider-Man Movie to have SEVERAL villains

Spider-Man Rogues

Paul Giamatti was quoted saying there will be SEVERAL villians in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2. Giamatti is playing the role of the Rhino. He is confirmed as well as Jamie Foxx as Electro.

This might be a concern to fans due to the past problem of overcrowding a movie. In the last Toby Maguire Spider-Man we had Venom, Sandman and the Green Goblin!! This can easily kill a movie or franchise. Tune into our next show to hear what our resident Spider-Man fan Pete thinks!
