Some news about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that’s potentially very exciting got dropped this weekend. It’s sort of a two-part story, with the first bit being a pretty concrete piece of casting news, and the second part being some spoiler heavy whispers about where the plot of these films is likely leading. We’ll put the more spoilery part beyond the jump, to be safe, so consider this your warning not to click if you don’t like knowing about awesome things before everyone else does. The news starts with an actor named Colm Feore, who you might remember from recent roles in television’s Revolution or The Borgias. Comic Book Movie is reporting that they have it “100% confirmed” that he’s been cast in director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the role of Adrian Toomes, who longtime Spidey fans know better as the winged and persnickety super villain, the Vulture. What exactly Toomes is going to be up to in the movie, well that’s the part you’re going to have to click through to read.

The summer of 2011 will see the biggest assemblage yet of superheroes onscreen with the upcoming releases of X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, and Captain America: The First Avenger. (At least until next year when The Avengers hits theaters.) Every movie is a gamble to some degree, but these three mitigate the risk a bit in that the X-Men film is the fourth in a popular franchise and the other two both feature highly recognizable actors in the title roles. But there’s one superhero movie this summer that’s flying with a hammer in place of a safety net. The potential hurdles include a relatively unknown lead actor, a director thought to be an odd choice at best and a terrible one at worst, and a hero built on magic and fantasy. Thor is a god, an honest to god deity, and that can be a hard sell in the science-fiction and technology-filled world of Marvel films. Thor opens with a brief intro in the Southwestern US with a pair of scientists (Natalie Portman and Stellan Skarsgard) and their snarky assistant (Kat Dennings) tracking an odd weather phenomenon. They drive towards the center of the storm and accidentally collide with a figure emerging from the darkness.
