AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

CBR's Josh Wigler spoke with Dane DeHaan about bringing Harry Osborn to life.

"A big aspect of Harry is that he tries to buy his happiness," DeHaan told CBR. "He's born with all of the money and power in the world, and he always gets what he wants. He spends his time going around the globe, doing drugs, flying around on private jets, sleeping with models, making headlines. That's what he does. He always gets what he wants."

Producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach spoke with The Playlist, and said that they weren't currently exploring any other Spider-Men besides Peter Parker -- and that includes "Ultimate Spider-Man's" Miles Morales.

"The one thing you cannot do, when you have a phenomena that has stood the test of time, you have to be true to the real character inside -- who is Peter Parker?" Arad told The Playlist. "What are the biggest effects on his life? Then you can draw in time, and you can consider today's world in many ways. But to have multiple ones… I don't know if you remember, but Marvel tried it. And it was almost the end of Spider-Man."

CHEW

John Layman discussed the big "Chew" animated series starring Steven Yeun as Tony Chu and Felicia Day as Amelia Mintz and working with Jeff Krelitz and Heavy Metal.

"Jeff has been fantastic, because not only does he know what he's doing, as far as animation and Hollywood stuff, he's also clearly a fan, of 'Chew,' of comics, and of nerd culture," Layman said. "You don't have to talk to him for very long to realize he's doing it for love, not just a quick Hollywood buck. And, as somebody who grew up on Heavy Metal, there's the added thrill of being a part of this new Heavy Metal iteration, and really an honor to be its first new animated production -- hopefully the first of many.

"And, so far, Jeff's vision is my vision, as what Jeff seems to be setting out to do is almost exact interpretation of the first TPB, just bringing it to life for an all-new audience."

While Layman couldn't discuss any other developments in casting, he said that the next casting announcement "is pretty much guaranteed to blow minds."

TERMINATOR

Deadline reports that former "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith will be cast in a "major role" in the "Terminator" franchise that will grow in the second and third films of the next trilogy. "Terminator: Genesis" is the first of the next set of films and is due out July 1, 2015.
