Empire Magazine's Amazing Spider-Man 2 Cover Lands!
Do movie magazines dream of Electro sheep?

22 July 2013  |  Written by Ian Freer  |  Source: Exclusive

“Spider-Man is still punk rock,” says The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb and the cover of the September issue of Empire proves it. We have the world’s favourite webslinger (sorry Tim Berners-Lee) staring you down, daring you to peruse our exclusive set report offering the lowdown on Spidey’s battles with Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti), plus a look forward to a potential showdown with the Sinister Six.

Subscribers to the magazine get an even closer look at Peter Parker’s alter-ego featuring the new improved mask, now with bigger eyes that may be a reference to Spidey’s look in The Ultimate Spider-Man series (2000-2009) or maybe just so that he can see better.

But the superhero goodness doesn’t stop there: we also have new looks at X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as the skinny on the all new Robocop and Godzilla (Robocop vs. Godzilla — are you listening Hollywood?) All that plus a dino-sized celebration of Jurassic Park at 20. No expense has been spared. Seriously, if we’d had a big enough helicopter, we’d have flown you all to Isla Nublar.

There’s so much more in the September issue of your friendly neighbourhood Empire which hits shops, iPad edition and US iPad edition on Thursday July 25. Altogether now (to the TV Spider-Man theme tune): ‘Spider-Woman/Spider-Woman/She’s got a radioactive bosom...’

Wow, that is one bad cover (both of them) Did Sony buy the cover on discount or something More

I really wish that Empire could afford to have some interesting covers for once. Most of them are of superhero flicks, if not, they'll be of rubbish-looking action flicks. I think there have been 45 Tolkein-based covers. But don't get me wrong, I realise that you're not Sight & Sound (my second favourite film mag), and that selling out your front cover has many pros.

Free copy
Empire, after texting for my free issue as promoted on Facebook I never got a phone call to confirm my address I sent you a Facebook message and never heard anything back. I very much enjoyed Amazing spider-man and would love to read this issue, which I'm guessing is the prize More

They really just should have put those eyes on the original 'amazing' spidey suit, this one is far too close to the maguire one :/ More

Empire. A magazine or a kid's lunchbox...?
The Amazing Spider-Man was rated as 3 stars by Empire. Why have its sequel on the front-cover? Hardly a significant event in the movie calendar guys. In fact isn't this sequel symbolic of the lazy approach studios take these days and therefore something you should be distancing yourself from? Oh I forgot; slapping Spider-Man on merchandise tends to increase sales. So much for integrity! More

Wrong Cruise title
Not ideal having the old title of Cruise's next movie on the cover. Loving the spidey though. More

Subscriber's Special
For the first time ever, I think I might prefer the normal cover to the subscriber's edition. Looks so much more - how do you say it - electric! More
