Due out next summer is the highly anticipated sequel to 2012's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man. Once again starring Andrew Garfield in the title role as Emma Stone returns as Gwen Stacy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 pits Spidey against Jamie Foxx's Electro, as well as old friend Harry Osborn - who eventually becomes the infamous Green Goblin.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to hit theaters on May 2, 2014.
Recently awarded 2013’s word of the year by the esteemed Oxford Dictionary, the term “selfie” exploded into pop culture during the last decade as a moniker for categorizing self-portraits.

Athletic superstars Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi come together once again, this time for Turkish Airlines, to one-up each other in an extreme game of selfie tag complete with underwater cams and photo-bombs.
Ford is all set to release its sixth-generation Mustang next year. The legendary muscle car appears to have been given heavy cosmetic surgery, but Ford designers say their inspiration stemmed strongly from the car's first-generation ancestor--among other things including a panther, Steve McQueen and a fist breaking glass. Compared to its 2014 predecessor, this model looks longer, wider and definitely lower for a more grounded, sleeker and fiercer appeal. Inside, the driver's controls prove more luxurious and dynamic, with a fully cow-clad steering wheel and high-tech features like driver-adjustable stability control, steering toggles, throttle and transmission systems, launch control, blind-spot monitors, cross-traffic alert, etc.
Performance-wise, drivers can choose from three engines: updated versions of the current 3.7-liter V6 with a projected 300 horsepower, a 5.0-liter V8 with projected 420 horsepower, and a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that packs around 305 horsepower. Actual horsepower and fuel economy numbers will be released later, and Ford will also offer updated six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. At the same time, the 2015 Mustang presents Mustang's first independent rear suspension which is expected to improve handling. Find out more on the Ford website.
