The Top Ten Gwen Stacy SPIDER-MAN comic Multiverse moments

Gwen Stacy from ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN | (C)Marvel Comics

So now that new fans are […]Read On »

While speaking to the press shortly before THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN panel at Wondercon 2012, director Marc Webb spoke about how different the new Spider-Man saga will be from the Sam Raimi trilogy that came before it. “There are elements of Spider-Man that’s universal,” says Webb. “He shoots his web and soars through the sky. He’s also a little guy who beats up guys bigger than him. I think for me, there were a few things in the SPIDER-MAN comics that were really interesting like the story of Peter’s parents and where he came from.
