Each and every week, I, “Agent Mulder!” Henchman 21 and “Agent Scully!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics.

So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of March 25, 2015.

Well, looks like it’s going to be a trade and graphic novel heavy list this week, as we looks at a stack of new books from Image, Marvel, Top Shelf, and maybe some others. Okay, and maybe I’ll throw in a few single issues just for fun. You never know what will happen on The GoD List!

Sony Sets Release Dates For ‘Sinister Six,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ ‘Uncharted’

Sinister Six

A year ago Sony Pictures Entertainment had such high hopes for their rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was moving forth without a hitch and early footage from the blockbuster sequel screened at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con to an enthusiastic response. Back in December the studio was so certain that it was going to be the biggest movie of this summer, if not 2014, that they announced plans to exploit their ownership of the movie rights to the Spider-Man universe by developing spinoffs that would star Spidey villains Venom and the Sinister Six.

The plan originally was for Amazing Spider-Man 2 screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner to collaborate on the Venom feature, while Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard would write and eventually be called upon to direct the Sinister Six movie. Then Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened to withering reviews from critics and less box office than the studio had initially projected. I haven’t seen the second movie in the rebooted series yet but the consensus is that the gluttony of villains, lack of attention paid to the main characters, and an anti-climatic ending that was to have paved the way for the spinoffs are what hurt its chances at the box office. A $706 million worldwide haul is hardly anything to sniff, but Sony was hoping that Amazing Spider-Man 2 would top out at a solid billion and change at the very least.

Sinister Six

Sony Pictures’ long-term plans for its blockbuster Spider-Man franchise have been getting bigger with each week that brings us a new image, trailer, or poster for their upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last week alone we were treated to a new banner poster and first trailer that revealed Marvel Comics’ classic arachnid-powered superhero (Andrew Garfield) would be taking on at least three new villains in Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and most unexpectedly Spidey’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) suiting up as either the Green Goblin or a Goblin-like baddie of some variation. Early reports indicated that the events of Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be setting up the first appearance of the super-villain collective the Sinister Six in a future sequel.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Marc Webb, the director of next year’s web-slingin’ sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has done a stand-out job keeping us posted on the production of the film via Twitter. Recently we’ve seen the first photos of Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro. Inevitably we would soon get a glimpse of Paul Giamatti as the second half of the movie’s super-powered baddie tag team, the Rhino.

True to form, Webb has now granted us the first photo of Giamatti in character and in action as the Rhino. You can check it out here below.

Prepare For Villain Overload Again: Venom Might Appear in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Venom

Production on the tentatively titled The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is proceeding at full speed with casting updates emerging on a weekly basis. We know that Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti will be playing the new villains Electro and the Rhino, respectively, and Shailene Woodley of The Descendants is the Mary Jane Watson of the rebooted franchise. Now there is the distinct possibility that the movie might be gaining a third villain, or at least the seeds are being planted for this particular adversary to take center stage should a third movie get the green light.

Director Marc Webb tweeted a teaser picture on Wednesday on the occasion of the birthday of actor Dane DeHaan, who is playing Harry Osborn, the troubled best friend of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield). The picture appears to be of a locker used in the movie, and die hard fans of the Ultimate Spider-Man comics will probably recognize the number on the locker door: 14.

Cover Price: $7.99

This is IT, True Believer! The Amazing Spider-Man #700 is the LAST issue of Marvel Comics’ flagship title starring their most popular character. Now, I don’t want to incur the Twitter wrath of writer Dan Slott, so you won’t find any spoilers here, BUT you’ll get the nuts and bolts of if this issue is worth it or not.

Slott has been writing Spider-Man a loooooong time. And, like he himself stated, this story began way back with his earliest work on the title, about 100 issues ago. First, let me say, the lead up to this story has been pretty entertaining. Not mind-blowing, but very entertaining. This issue, however, does have some VERY mind-blowing moments. It’s a classic Spider-Man story that will have fans of the series recalling all of their favorite issues, as so many of them have been told at this king of break-neck, beat the clock manner.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ To End In December With Issue #700

Amazing Spider-Man 700

Marvel has been announcing the cancellation and relaunch many of their titles over the last few months as part of their Marvel NOW! initiative and we learned this week which title will next see a relaunch — Amazing Spider-Man.

Marvel’s solicitations for December of 2012 revealed that Amazing Spider-Man #700 will be the series’ last issue. Now, I say final issue with the largest possible air quotes I can, as we know that the series will be back in either January or February with a (possible) new creative team and a (possible) new release schedule. My guess is that Marvel will bring an end to the era of Amazing Spider-Man being released every two weeks, barring months where they ship multiple issues (which Marvel loves to do with their other titles).

Check out the full cover for Amazing Spider-Man #700 here below.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Firework Fred” MK2Fac3 and “Firecracker Frank” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 4, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Um, yeah, sorry about the delay, folks! We were just sitting over here drinking non-alcoholic beverages in celebration of freedom and such, so we got a little too distracted by the holiday to get this up in time. You forgive us, right? Sure you do. I mean, I’m sure that you might have gotten distracted by all the booms and crackering of fireworks too and missed picking up new comics, right? That’s what I thought. Well, there’s a decent amount of stuff that came out this week, but a lot of it is more new issues than new comics, you know what I mean? Not a lot of fresh pickings. Nonetheless, you should read on because there are new comics to love and behold. Which ones? Like I said, you’ll need to read on for The GoD List.

The Amazing Spider-Man PosterThe Amazing Spider-Man
Directed by Marc Webb
Written by James Vanderbilt
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary
Sony | Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 138 Minutes
Release Date: July 3, 2012

Who would have thought a Spider-Man film without Mary Jane Watson, Norman Osborn, and J. Jonah Jameson would end up being the web-slinger’s definitive adventure? With Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man, the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler is taken “back to formula” with a spectacular reboot.

When Joel Schumacher’s 1997 film Batman & Robin completely destroyed the Batman franchise, it took Warner Bros. eight years to resurrect the caped crusader. It took a colossal, rubber-nippled failure to give birth to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, and I think we can all agree it was worth revisiting the Batman mythos.

Similarly, Sam Raimi’s 2007 movie Spider-Man 3 ruined Marvel’s most popular (and profitable) superhero series beyond repair. The reason comic book characters like Batman and Spider-Man have survived for decades is because they are constantly re-imagined by new writers and artists. It took Ang Lee’s underwhelming Hulk to bring us The Incredible Hulk, which ultimately led to Mark Ruffalo’s excellent portrayal of the character in The Avengers.

Two Amazing Posters For ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

The Amazing Spider-Man

Following the release of The Amazing Spider-Man four-minute super preview, Sony has released two more posters that continue to emphasize that Marc Webb’s Spider-Man is not like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. You can check out these two new incredible posters below.

The first poster uses the POV style shot that was seen in the first trailer that was released. The poster puts a lot of emphasis on Spidey’s signature tool, the webshooter. Also if you look more closely, you will see the New York lights form the Spider emblem. The next poster just has Spider-Man’s back facing onlookers with the tagline “The Untold Story Beings.”
