AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

One day away! ComingSoon.net has posted a video interview with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone discussing the upcoming sequel and what it means for their characters.

Movies.com spoke with director Marc Webb about the film and the cut scenes with Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson.

"There was one little scene at the beginning where she is next door and it took place right around the montage where he comes back and there was another little moment between Gwen and MJ. But it just tipped over," Webb told Movies.com. "The relationship between them [Peter and Gwen] is so sacred and so powerful, that it just didn't feel right. And it sucks because Shailene is such a f**king great actress and so cool and magical but it was just about having this obligation to this romance that I thought was sacred. It was just one of those things."

FANTASTIC FOUR

Rumor has it that Tim Blake Nelson is in final negotiations to join the "Fantastic Four" reboot as Harvey Elder, better known as the Mole Man. Reportedly, Elder will not be a full supervillain in the film, rather an "eccentric and socially awkward scientist." It makes sense considering Toby Kebbell has already been cast as Doctor Doom. Nelson also portrayed Samuel Sterns in 2008's "The Incredible Hulk."
