It was a big weekend for movie going comic book fans. The Amazing Spider-man 2 dominated the weekend’s box office, earning a hefty $92 million. To fans and passive observers alike this should come as no surprise. The classic Marvel Comics character has been being talked about by everyone as the new film’s highly anticipated release date approached, and since big music players like Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams involved we at Clizbeats were no exception.
