Tuesday Trending Topics: The Amazing Spider-Man Toy Story

Mystery toy features aside, we’ve had a pretty good look at The Amazing Spider-Man movie version of the lizard at this point, and despite some early concern after the SDCC footage last year, I think it works (particularly from what you can see in that licensed halloween costume). And having given the trailer some further thought, I think there’s plenty to be encouraged about in the tone of that too.  So I’m looking forward to it, and also looking forward to what’s coming next — because you’ve got to figure that Kraven is getting pretty close to the top of the villains list.
