Awesome ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Drawing Featuring Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man & Jamie Foxx’s Electro
Patrick Brown and Joey Vazquez have teamed up to put together this great ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ artwork. Patrick describes the piece as follows: “Me and the great Joey Vazquez have teamed up for a collaboration! Joey is best known for his love of Spider-man and his own comic Terra, I’ve always loved his style of drawing so when Joey came up with the idea to team up I couldn’t pass up the chance. I’m really looking forward to The Amazing Spider-man 2, me and Joey both are so it just made sense to do this. Joey did the pencils for Spidey, I drew Electro and did the colors and background.” I’d strongly recommend giving Patrick and Joey’s a work a peep – stellar stuff!
Set for release on May 2nd, 2014, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Jamie Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro), Paul Giamatti (Aleksei Sytsevich/The Rhino), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborne), Colm Feore, Chris Cooper (Norman Osborne), Felicity Jones, B.J.

With filming now underway on ‘Hercules’ in Hungary, Dwayne Johnson has took to his Twitter account to tease his look in the film. Johnson captioned the above image with the following: “Our HERCULES set is designed by Academy Award winner Jean-Vincent Puzos w/ amazing detail. I sit quietly in awe..” ’Hercules’ also stars Golden Globe-winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award-nominee John Hurt. Rounding out the main cast is Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie. Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand) is directing the film.
Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. This story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.

Amazing Illustrated Print For Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ – Starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam & Rinko Kikuchi
Kaiju Samurai has drawn this fantastic print for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming action-adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse. Set for a July 12th 2D, 3D and IMAX release, ‘Pacific Rim’ also stars Idris Elba, Rob Kazinsky, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.
