I had hoped to show off a couple pretty new scenes for Spider-Man 3 thanks to the film's international trailer, but it has so far taken three hours to download the damn thing. Well, only about another 90 minutes to go - yay.
No matter, as we already have another Spidyful update coming at you. Since Venom is all the talk, who better to talk to than Topher Grace?
Topher Grace: Spidy Ass-Kicking
In a recent interview with MTV, Topher Grace not only tells readers that Venom will kick Spider-Man's ass, but that he is 'geeked' about the franchise in general. Geeked? But that's my word!
"but isn't it about time that somebody kicked his ass?" Now, with only six weeks left until the release of "Spider-Man 3," the man who will soon be known as Venom is promising we'll finally see Peter Parker getting pummeled. "He kicks Spider-Man's ass," Grace grinned, reflecting on his black-suited supervillain. "It was interesting, and it was hard. I had to do a lot of working out, which is very new to me. ... I play a bad guy, so that was a very different experience for me, acting-wise." Cast alongside series stars Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco, the "That '70s Show" star insisted he'll be right there in line with the rest of us come May 4. "I'm the guy that's going to be driving around to theaters opening weekend to watch it," he smiled. "I used to collect the comic books, and I'm pretty geeked out about it."
We got another Spider-Man update coming at you shortly -- with hopefully a mirror -- so stay tuned for that.
