Not about to be outdone by the theatrical release of Marvel’s The Avengers (read our review) – with Warner Bros.’ third Dark Knight Rises trailer tagging along – Sony has gone ahead and unveiled a third (and final?) trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, a controversial revamping of the web-slinger movie franchise.
The latest theatrical promo for Andrew Garfield’s debut as Peter Parker will also be attached to Avengers prints. But even armed with some fantastic 3D effects, plus a potpourri of classic and modernized elements from the comics, can this Spider-Man reboot really go toe-to-toe with this summer’s superhero movie juggernauts?
Judging by this latest trailer: Amazing Spider-Man should at least put up a pretty dang good fight, as far as justifying Sony’s decision to reboot the franchise goes.

The tale of the Winchester brothers will continue for another year, as The CW announced today that they have officially renewed Supernatural for season 8 – but could this be Supernatural’s final bow?
Despite an unconventional seventh season, news of Supernatural’s renewal isn’t likely to shock fans of the series.

We had the opportunity to speak with the director at the Los Angeles press event for The Avengers about the following subjects:
- How he located the “Buffy of the story” (the central idea) in The Avengers and made sure each character was given their due.
- How the characters’ flaws ultimately work for them.
- What he hoped to achieve in bringing his version of The Hulk to the big screen.
Both Whedon and Avengers fans have been anxiously anticipating the film since the moment that the director’s attachment to the project was announced. Those who were familiar with his work certainly understood Marvel’s logic. Whedon has a strong record of creating powerful ensemble pieces. He was one of the Academy Award-nominated scribes behind the first film in Pixar’s now ...
