Sony Pictures has just revealed the first-look image of the new Spider-Man costume in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
As director Marc Webb promised last November, the costume features much bigger eyes and a number of alterations to color and texture throughout. This is quite arguably the closest any of the films have come to matching the design from the comics.
Okay, I am a G.I. Joe Kid (80's to be exact) but I'm not ashamed to admit it. :) I used to have an army of G.I. Joe action figures but what's left with me now are a few units, one of which is one of my most favorite characters, who is at the other side of the fence, Storm Shadow of COBRA! :) G.I. JOE won't be the same with his character and I just knew, that he will be back in the movie version's sequel.
And indeed, I'm right. He's back! Korean superstar Byung-hun Lee, who reprises his role of STORM SHADOW, was excited by the possibility to explore the more internal side of the character. “If I had just a lot of sword fights and kicks in the first movie, this time my character (Storm Shadow) is seen more up close. It has a dramatic aspect that shows his history, inner conflicts. I loved how much of my acting I could show this time around... but I still think I could have been much more competent in a Korean film.

It’s a tale that has endured for generations. Known by different names in myriad cultures dating at least as far back as the 12th century, its details have evolved with local lore and various retellings, but its power always lay in the way it played upon our love of heroes and our deepest fears. It was this fertile ground from which sprung New Line Cinema's big-screen adventure “Jack the Giant Slayer,” a familiar tale given new dimension, with freshly rendered characters that draw audiences into a larger world of peril and destiny.
“Essentially, it’s everything you remember—and more,” says Nicholas Hoult, who first worked with director Bryan Singer on “X-Men: First Class,” and stars in the title role. “We’re firing crossbows, zip-lining across huge divides, swinging from vines and dodging flaming trees that the giants uproot and hurl at us. You never know what to expect.”
