Kirsten Dunst Was 'In Shock' When Melancholia Director Lars Von Trier Called Himself A 'Nazi' At Cannes

The following is a guest post from our friends at Luckymag.com.

“Just don’t write the ‘she’s back!’ thing. I wasn’t ever away! Sorry I wasn’t inSpiderman 4 a year after I was in Spiderman 3!”

Kirsten Dunst and I have known each other for 10 minutes, but already we’re in the weeds. She doesn’t want a boring celebrity profile written about her. And she hates pieces that proclaim her return to acting. Well, what kind of Kirsten Dunst story does she want told? More »

Andrew Garfield Might Have Gotten the ‘Spider-Man’ Movie, but Donald Glover Influenced the New Half-Black, Half-Latino Spidey in the Comics

Andrew Garfield Might Have Gotten the 'Spider-Man' Movie, but Donald Glover Influenced the New Half-Black, Half-Latino Spidey in the Comics

Remember when Donald Glover campaigned over Twitter to get an audition for The Amazing Spider-Man and even wore a pair of Spidey pajamas on Community? Sadly for him, the producers decided to go with another white Peter Parker in Andrew Garfield, but Glover’s campaign has still made waves in the original comic books. Ultimate Spider-Man, an alternate-universe series, just killed off the original Peter Parker… and the new Spider-Man is a half-black, half-Latino kid named Miles Morales. More »

How Pro-America Superheroes Like Batman and Captain America Are Portrayed in the Movies

How Pro-America Superheroes Like Batman and Captain America Are Portrayed in the Movies

Not all superheroes fight for the American way: The X-Men, for one, know that they’re despised by all of humanity. But there are a couple of caped crimefighters who are willing to lay down their lives for their country, or at least their city, to repay some sort of debt. So let’s compare four pro-American superheroes — Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, and Captain America — against American standards of self-sufficiency, loyalty, and relationships. I’ve tried my best not to include any canon from the comic books and go solely by the movies, so any generalizations or theories are supported by the visions of Christopher Nolan, Marc Webb, Sam Raimi, and others.

You will never hate anything as much as this guy hates Rob Liefield‘s comic book illustrations. The drawings of women, feet, and weapons are bad enough, but it’s the captions that will have you howling. (Progressive Boink)

Snap This: The Amazing Brown Recluse Spider-Man

Snap This: The Amazing Brown Recluse Spider-Man

When I was a kid, there was a brown recluse scare in my hometown. At the time, the scariest spiders I knew about were tarantulas, so I had a bit of a hard time wrapping my six-year-old brain around the fact that a) tarantulas aren’t actually all that bad, and that b) something much, much worse was on the loose. But Brown Recluse Spider-Man? This probably would have made it easier to grasp. Kate Beaton’s Hark, A Vagrant is delightful, by the way, so you should all definitely head on over there and check it out. More »

‘Fiona’s Tale’ (a.k.a. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’) Is Filming Near Our Office (Update!)

'Fiona's Tale' (a.k.a. 'The Amazing Spider-Man') Is Filming Near Our Office (Update!)

Although the Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield will differ in many ways from its unsuccessful predecessor, one thing stays the same: Since the story takes place in New York, they’ve got to shoot in the Big Apple. Photos of Garfield lounging around in Queens appeared online last week, and we just spotted the film crew on 19th and Park. That’s just south of Madison Square Park, which was most recently immortalized thanks to Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski‘s Shake Shack lunches in Something Borrowed. More »
