Loads of news from Spiderman 2 ,Avengers 2 Prequel ,Mission Impossible 5 ,Hitman and more!

1-After the successful reboot of the Spiderman franchise last year ,with the Amazing Spiderman ,fans have been waiting for news on the sequel.Today the synopsis of the sequel has been revealed-
"In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen, high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past."

So far, this movie has brought in major new characters with Mary Jane (Shailene Woodley) ,Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) joining up for this sequel.Is this a good idea?

2-Other than Iron Man 3,Thor 2 ,Captain America 2 and Ant Man , there is one more superhero movie that will set up for the events that take place in Avengers 2 in 2015.And that is Guardians Of the Galaxy.
The first actor confirmed for a role is Chriss Pratt who will play the lead role of Star Lord.Chriss has acted in various comedy roles and was last seen in the gritty Zero Dark Thirty.James Gunn will direct the movie and its set to come out on August 1 2014.

GOG is about a team of superheroes who protect the galaxy.Led by Star Lord ,son of a human mother and an alien,hes a charming troublemaker who serves as an interplanetary policeman.GOG also consists of-
-Drax The Destroyer,a superhero born when his human spirit was placed inside a powerful alien body.Drax's arch enemy is Thanos*
-Gamora is an alien warrior and adopted daughter of supervillain,Thanos*.
-Rocket Raccoon ,is the guardian of a sector of outer space.Hes a master tactician and commander and he also happens to be a raccoon.
-Groot, is an alien tree ,that first appeared as a villian ,but later on became a member of GOG after SHIELD captured him.His powers include ,controlling trees and other such tree related stuff.

(*Thanos was the villain that was shown during the credits in Avengers)

Got to say ,Raccoon & a Tree will be a hard thing to explain in the movies!

3-After making the brilliant ,Cloud Atlas, Wachowski's have redeemed their names.Their next project is called Jupiter Ascending ,and while nothing much is known about it ,the cast for the movie includes -Channing Tatum ,Mila Kunis & Sean Bean.
The synopsis of the mysterious movie is as follows-
"In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen's reign."

Although it sounds great ,the chances of getting this screwed is high !

4-Hobbit The Unexpected Journey continues to inch its way to a Billion Dollars ,and most fans are waiting for the bluray release ,and also for the extended version.Although i felt the theatrical version was long itself ,its almost confirmed the extended version will come out ,but only by this Christmas.Meanwhile the normal version will release on MARCH 24.The bonus features are a disappoint though (they are waiting to release the full features with the extended version).Other than trailers ,there are the 10 video blogs that Jackson posted throughout the last 2 years (available on YouTube).

Meanwhile the teaser for the second part ,Desolation of Smaug ,will be shown on March 24 aa well.

5- After Disney bought off the Star Wars franchise and announced plans to continue the series ,many have debated about the possibilities of spin off movies.Now, the CEO of Disney,Bob Iger ,confirmed that there will be spin off movies focusing on major characters of the original trilogy.These movies wont have much of an influence over the new trilogy -Episode 7,8& 9 ,and will be stand alone movies.
There are rumors that the first stand alone movie will be a prequel on the Jedi Grand Master ,Yoda.

6- After the immensely successful Mission impossible Ghost Protocol ,the fifth part is preparing for a 2014 release.Not much is known at the moment other than Tom Cruise will lead the movie as expected.
Today ,Christopher McQuarrie confirmed that he would be directing MI5.McQuarrie has previously directed Cruise in last years Jack Reacher and has also written Screenplays for -Usual Suspects ,Valkyrie ,upcoming 2013 movies such as Wolverine ,Jack the Giant Slayer etc.

7-Paul Walker ,star of the Fast & Furious series ,is all set to play the lead role in Agent 47 ,which is based on the famous video game series -HITMAN.
A movie version of Hitman was made back in 2007 but was considered a failure.Agent 47 will be a reboot ,and set for release in 2014.
Skip Woods ,who wrote the 2007 Hitman movie ,will be writing for the movie and Aleksander Bach will be directing.
