Spider-Man, Felicia Day and more

It's time for a few links I've gathered up over the week.

It's the "Amazing Spider-Man"

Sony announced the official title for the Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. It's "The Amazing Spider-Man," so don't confuse it with regular "Spider-Man," but hey, it's better than the disaster that is "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," right? Still, this is looking good. Andrew Garfield was great in The Social Network and I personally like that they've gone back to mechanical web-shooters.

Felicia Day Making a Dragon Age II Webseries

Because The Guild was awesome, and Dragon Age is awesome, by extension, this will also be awesome. Trust me, there's a logic in that statement.

Wonder Woman

Not sure if this qualifies as awesome or not, but it's worth sharing. NBC is working on a Wonder Woman TV show, as she's currently the most iconic super hero to currently be completely irrelevant. They've cast Adrianne Palicki (SupernaturalFriday Night Lights) in the title role. She doesn't exactly strike me as the Amazonian type, though any update for that character has to be a good thing. Interestingly, early reports show that this Wonder Woman will spend time obsessing over her breasts. And as much as it pains me to admit, even I can't say that's a good sign.

Prepare for the Apocalypse

io9 had a couple of helpful articles to help prepare for the coming apocalypse, because let's face it, you don't want to be left out in the cold when the zombies/robots/aliens/nukes/floods/(insert other fashionable disasters here) strike.

Hasbro Will Lose

"Kre-O?" Seriously? Sure if Hasbro avoids the cheap Mega-Bloks plastic this could be perfectly acceptable, but the chances of that happening are... what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah. Nonexistent.
