This week I came across an interview with Andrew Garfield about the new Amazing Spider-Man movie.  He talks about what playing Spider-man means to him as an actor and as a fan.  He claims he is lucky and unlucky about playing spider-man because he calls himself a fan first and foremost.  He also goes on to talk about the various comic book runs and how he used them to his advantage on portraying Peter and Spidey.

The best part of these videos is when he talks about how excited he was to see the first (Sam Raimi) Spider-Man movie.  He was so excited that he bought a bootleg/pirated version of it.   Of course, the biggest rumor going around that everyone is asking about is when will Spider-Man make a cameo in Avengers?

The new trailer is out now (more on this on SSWL) and I was flabbergasted by it.  I literally had to pick up my jaw from the floor I loved it so much.  THIS is the Spider-Man I was expecting to see in the first movie.  A jokey, fun, and geek Parker/Spider-man.  Emma Watson and Andrew Garfield look great together and look like they will have great chemistry on screen.

The new season of The Walking Dead is coming soon.  Although I only read the first two trades, I can’t say I’m a big fan like some people.  However, I did like Robert Kirkman’s writing.  Last season they found the CDC, which they thought was the safe zone from the zombies.  Unfortunately, they turned out to be wrong.

**SPOILERS**

The season ended with the destruction of the CDC plant.  Before it was destroyed, the doctor told them that the French may have found a cure.  As much as I hate zombies, I can’t wait for this new season to begin.   Here is the trailer for the new season.  Are you excited? Comment below!

Football season has started.  I know many people out there love fantasy football – picking out your own personal team and going head to head against your friends.  I, for one, am not a football fan.  Yes, I do watch the Super Bowl when it’s that time of the year, but I honestly could care less. There is, however, an alternative non-fans might be interested in. My friend Albert Ching (staff writer at Newsarama) and Lucas Siegel (editor) have come up with the idea of choosing players from the Marvel Universe.  Now this is a team I would like to see play against the DC Universe team.
