Dan Slott Infests NYC in SPIDER-ISLAND
Woodley was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in The Descendants and has played the lead role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager (set to wrap following its current season), since 2008. The role of Mary Jane was played in the original Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man trilogy by Kirsten Dunst, with James Franco portraying Harry Osborn. Electro, if he does end up in the film, would be new to live-action. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel is scheduled for release on May 2, 2014. TWO TV DEALS FOR ED BRUBAKER Ed Brubaker's eight-year run on Captain America ends at Marvel this month, but it doesn't look like he's slowing down. The Hollywood Reporter has word that he's sold pilots for two network crime dramas: Rising Suns at Fox, about an American Yakuza underboss who "gets involved with the female FBI agent who's hunting him;" and an untitled NBC project centered on a young female agent dedicated to erasing evidence of a more experience agent's missions. Brubaker is on board to write and executive produce both shows. IMAGE'S 'ENORMOUS' GETS ADAPTATION Also from The Hollywood Reporter: A "transmedia adaptation" of Image graphic novel Enormous, by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour, is in development from Trollhunter producers Adrian Askarieh and Andre Ovredal. As THR points out, the comic series is moving to 21 Ink for an 18-issue series starting next year. Got a comment? There's lots of conversation on Newsarama's FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
