Lots of cool Spidey news today with the announcement of some good Spider-Man releases. The first two Spider-Man films came with so many releases, it was a little hard to keep track of. Spider-Man 3 arrives from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with just a few releases that should satisfy just about everyone.
Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. When his Spider-Man suit suddenly changes, turning jet-black and enhancing his powers, it transforms Peter as well. Under the influence of the suit, Peter becomes prideful and overconfident and he begins to neglect the ones he cares about the most. As two of the most-feared villains yet, Sandman and Venom, gather unparalleled power and a thirst for retribution, Peter’s greatest battle is the one within himself. Spider-Man will need to rediscover the compassion that makes him who he is: a hero.
