If you mix action figures, Photoshop, great photography and a playfully twisted imagination, you come up with the magic of Edy Hardjo’s work. We recently posted one of his pictures, but now we’ve hit the motherload.
The results are a pretty dang amusing and, occasionally, a little NSFW. I think the one with the mouse is my personal favorite.

Hawkeye couldn’t be more pleased.
Ever since the Sony leaks, we knew that Sony and Marvel were working on a deal that would bring Spider-Man back to the MCU. Last night, Marvel confirmed that an agreement was reached:
Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.
Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.
While the press release doesn’t state which Marvel film will be first to utilize Spidey, you can pretty much take Captain America: Civil War to the bank.
Our guess is that Andrew Garfield won’t be part of the “new creative direction” either. However, nothing has been confirmed on that front thus far.
Redditor logic-pending decided to make a very special present for her boyfriend who is a huge Spider-Man fan. Over the course of 2 months and about 100 hours she drew this beautiful picture of Spidey (yes, this is a drawing). She chose to use Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it looks so good, you’d swear it was from the film.

This is the Egg Attack Spider-Man figure from Beast Kingdom. He measures 6″ tall and is fully articulated with 5 sets of hands and three plastic web fluid attachments. He’s freaky and cute at the same time with a gigantic head that makes him look like he should topple right over. Based on the character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it is due out in Japan this coming April and is already available for preorder.

Thanks to the Sony leaks, we know that Sony and Marvel attempted to work out a deal to bring Spider-Man back to the MCU for various projects including Captain America: Civil War. Unfortunately, hose negotiations broke down—but all may not be lost. Latino Review is reporting that the deal is very much alive in the wake of the hack (and the poor performance of recent Spider-Man films on Sony’s watch).
According to Kel over at Latino Review:
IF the Marvel/Sony deal were to go forward, Andrew Garfield would no longer be Peter Parker and any baggage from existing films, Raimi or Webb, would be non-canonical, Marvel doesn’t want any part of those films. The idea is that the Spider-Man romance movie has been played out over five installments, so any new Spider-Man films would focus on the difficulties of being a teenager and a superhero with a romance side-story, not the film’s focus. Marvel also thinks that the origin story is well-trodden territory, so any Spider-Man movies under this deal would begin with Peter Parker already leading a dual life. Spider-Man making his debut in Captain America: Civil War is still a distinct possibility and would serve as the character’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as of now Spider-Man will NOT be in Civil War. I was told that they have a script nailed down.
So, if the deal works out and Spider-Man goes back to Marvel, we basically hit the ground running with a lead actor. He’s already got the double life and he’s already dating Mary Jane – both of which allow for more time for Spider-Man to just be Spider-Man.
Granted nothing may come of this, but the fact is that Sony doesn’t have much leverage left. It makes sense for them to profit while Marvel does the heavy lifting to get the character back on track.
What do you think?
This mind-blowing bit of info comes from the documents that were released as a result of the massive Sony hack. More specifically, emails from Sony chief Amy Pascal who notes that there’s a team-up in the works between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s Jump Street characters that will have them working with the MIB. The film is set to be written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller who were the same team behind the previous Jump Street films.
An email from Lord said, “jump street merging with mib i think that’s clean and rad and powerful.” Um, okay. Just keep in mind that the movie is unlikely to include Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones or Josh Brolin.
Just to make the headache you’re getting even worse, the emails also show that there were plans in the works to bring Spider-Man over into the official Marvel Cinematic Universe for a new trilogy of standalone films and Captain America: Civil War. Those plans have apparently been shelved because they couldn’t work out all the details.
Yes, Spidey and his kitty pal are incredibly cute together.
Hot Toys released an Amazing Spider-Man 2 Figure earlier this year that included accessories like a jacket, knit cap, backpack and a few other odds and ends. Twitter user tks1783 capitalized on the new Spidey accessories to create a photo series that portrays Spider-Man on his day off from fighting crime. As you’ll see, when Spidey isn’t beating up baddies, he enjoys hanging with a giant cat, lounging in bed and also taking the Spider-Kid to school. It’s like he’s actually an average kind of guy, you know?
