Andrew Garfield has kindly shared some tidbits from his anticipated film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". The 29-year-old actor dropped some hints about what fans could expect from Peter Parker in the sequel set to arrive in cinemas on May 2, 2014. First things first, the actor confirmed recent rumors that Spidey's suit will change in the next movie.

Explaining the reason behind the redesigned red-and-blue suit, the Los Angeles-born thesp jokingly told E! News, "The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate in it last time. So I'm less nervous 'cause that's gonna be nice."

The real-life boyfriend of Emma Stone went on sharing that he'd like to explore Peter in the sequel but will still focus on his orphan life. "I feel really excited," he gushed. "I feel like we got over a hump with our first one. We had to reinstate the character, and we had to reinvigorate an audience to the character. And I hope to bring more of this theme - the theme of the orphan."

"I wanna keep exploring that theme of being fatherless, being motherless, searching for purpose and finding a purpose within himself, being a self-made man, I guess," the British-American actor opened up at the Worldwide Orphans gala in New York City on Tuesday, November 13.

Andrew elaborated more about Peter's development in "The Amazing Spider-Man" sequel, "It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don't take it lightly. I think there's so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behavior over bad behavior, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders."

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will bring back Andrew and Emma as Peter and his girlfriend Gwen Stacy respectively. Though the blond leading lady will still be featured in the sequel, it has been reported that Peter's other love interest Mary Jane will also make appearance. Shailene Woodley is said to be cast as M.J. Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx reportedly has been tapped to play supervillain Electro.

Teen pop superstar Justin Bieber is used to being chased by a lot of screaming and eager fans, but on Tuesday night, November 13, it was a different group going after the Canadian singer on the streets of West Hollywood. According to reports from TMZ, several police patrol cars pulled over Bieber's white luxurious Ferrari around 6:30 P.M. as he was cruising along the Hollywood area.

The over-the-top lavish sports car was spotted along the highway, apparently getting the attention of an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy who then called back up and hit the strobes and sirens. According to law enforcement sources, the "Baby" hitmaker was issued a traffic ticket, but it was still not clear as to what particular traffic law Bieber broke.

Photos from TMZ of the young pop star's brush with the law enforcers spread online and revealed an obedient and cooperative-looking Bieber as he got off his white Ferrari. Witnesses have also reported that the Biebs was quiet and cooperative all throughout the nerve-wracking scenario. Cops apparently just checked his documentation and driving condition, and searched through the awesome Ferrari ride.

Bieber certainly has a unique way of starting his week and to think that the young star just came off a surreal weekend: First, hanging out with sexy supermodels at the recent Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and then suffering a totally unexpected breakup with his girlfriend of two years, Selena Gomez. Fans might be interested to know that Bieber was not alone in the cool ride. A male friend reportedly was on the passenger seat enjoying the joyride with the Biebs.

One of Hollywood's hottest siblings, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, might end up sharing screens together in one movie. According to The Film Stage, Chris is eyed to star in a Steve McQueen biopic called "Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago", in which his little brother is attached to star.

It's unclear what role the Australian brother duo will tackle in the biopic about the late "Sand Pebbles" actor. The project still hasn't found its helmer, but Brandon and Philip Murphy are set to pen the script, which revolves around Steve McQueen's relationship with his stunt double Bud Elkins.

A rival McQueen biopic is also developed with Chris' "The Avengers" co-star, Jeremy Renner, taking the lead role. The untitled Steve McQueen Biopic has Ivan Zacharias serving as the director and James Gray penning the script.

"Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago" won't likely be the only new upcoming project for Chris Hemworth. The "Thor" star, who's recently turned down the offer to star in "American Assassin", has been tapped to join Stephen Gaghan's high-end crime thriller project "Candy Store".

The project has attracted the interests of a number of A-listers, including Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz. The likes of Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Bradley Cooper are reportedly also circling the thriller.

"Candy Store" follows an elite, deep-cover operative who loses everything, ultimately disappearing into Brooklyn, where he must start again. He winds up as a beat up cop, only to discover the global organization he was dedicated to fighting is operating in his new backyard. No start date has been set for the project.

I'm excited to surprise them sonically."
