Webs out, Spider-fans! Sony's long-planned "Amazing" reboot hits theaters today, giving you the chance to finally weigh in once and for all: can Marc Webb's take on "Spider-Man" match or surpass the Sam Raimi era? Critics are divided, but this much is clear: Peter Parker's about to make a whole lot of money, and you're probably contributing to the pile.

We've been covering "Spider-Man" very thoroughly all throughout MTV Movies over the past few weeks. Keep reading for highlights of our coverage!



Captain America

It's been a busy week over at MTV Splash Page, and we're not just talking about the Black Panther rumor heard 'round the world. Directors and writers have been hired for multiple other comic book movie projects, on both the Marvel and DC Comics sides of the aisles.

In brief, here are the updates...

» At long last, "Captain America 2" has a director. Directors, we should say: "Community" duo Anthony and Joe Russo are in final negotiations with Marvel to get behind the lens of the shield-slinging super-soldier's next big-screen outing. A controversial choice, perhaps, but one that keeps in line with Marvel's propensity to hire unexpected filmmakers (see Jon Favreau, Kenneth Branagh for more). Tell us what you think of the Russo brothers' hiring in our poll!

Ben Kingsley, one of the finest actors currently working, does not like Iron Man. Well, perhaps he likes the films Iron Man appears in, but he has it out for Ol' Shellhead himself, based on a new report that Kingsley's playing the villain in Shane Black's "Iron Man 3."

Kingsley's role remains under wraps, though it's said to be tied to Warren Ellis' six-issue "Extremis" comic book run. It's also not, apparently, The Mandarin, despite several clues pointing towards the ring-clad villain's ultimate involvement in the "Iron Man" movie franchise. Kind of a bummer, as Kingsley would be an excellent choice for an updated (see: not horribly racially offensive) version of the popular Marvel baddie.
