    I really should’ve posted this before but…

    The clip is gone. :O

    Now if you click on the logo on http://markofthespider-man.com, it will redirect you to the trailer.

    I think there’s something in the clip we may have missed…any ideas?!?!

    The grid is now complete… [NEW YORK + PHOENIX OP EVENTS]

    New York and Phoenix have just had their tagging events last night, completing the statics grid on the Mark of the Spider-Man site. Here are some pics from the events to enjoy:

    And now, if you click on the Spidey logo on the main MOTSM page, it directs you to this new clip from the film:

    So, what do you think will happen next? Stay tuned!

    That phone call…

    Looks like over the course of the past 6 hours, spidey-hunter operatives have been getting their phone calls from the MOTSM team telling them to “be prepared” for an event/s this week. Different cities got different dates to be ready for, and evidence from Twitter and other sources suggests that they are as follows:

    Atlanta/Seattle - Wednesday Feb 15, 20:00

    Denver/Los Angeles - Thursday Feb 16, 20:00

    New York/Phoenix - Friday Feb 17, 20:00

    And one of the hunters on SuperHeroHype has kindly shared his description of the phone call!

    I just got a call on my Spider phone from a very, very serious Spider-Man supporter who gave me some detailed instructions, as follows:

    -I was told that the call was in reference to Spider-Man.
    -I was asked to verify my name, which was taken when I picked the package up.
    -I was then asked to confirm that I got my phone in Seattle.
    -I was then told that I will be needed sometime after 8PM tomorrow night, and asked if I could make it, which I can.
    -He then told me that I will be called at a random time tomorrow to receive further instructions about the exact location. 
    -I was then told I would need to bring a friend and that we would need to wear the two hoodies given with the phone, and that we both need to be 18 years old. Also, that we’ll be outside a few hours and will need to dress warmly.
    -I was then asked if I understood the instructions, I confirmed I did. 
    -I was then asked to repeat the instructions, I did.
    -I was then told I would be called tomorrow and that I should be ready to accept the call at any time. He then closed the call with “For Spider-Man!” and I replied back with my own “For Spider-Man!” and we ended the call.

    So something is going down tomorrow night around 8PM. I am sooooo pumped!!!

    Time for Round #2… [UPDATE: SOMETHING GOING DOWN TOMORROW NIGHT]

    So, the countdowns on http://markofthespider-man.com are starting to hit zero as we speak. And now the website has revealed this:

    So, you’ve found us.

    If you support us, if you support Spider-Man, now is your time. Follow the Twitter accounts of our operatives in each of these cities. They’ll tell you where to go to uncover the next step.

    For this pursuit we ask that you please be over the age of 18. 

    Be safe, and good luck. We’re counting on you.

    Under each static, there will be a Twitter account to follow for more details regarding the hunt in your location. There will be 5 assignments per city, revealed every 45 minutes starting from when the countdown for your city hits zero.

    And each city’s accounts are as follows:

    N.B. ALL TIMES ARE LOCAL TIME

    NEW YORK - @NYCWEBSLINGER [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE]

    ATLANTA@caughtinatlweb [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE]

    DENVER @webbedinDenver [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE] DON’T SCREW THIS UP LIKE LAST TIME, PLEASE!!!

    PHOENIX@PHOENIX4SPIDERM [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE]

    SEATTLE@SEATTLEWEBHEADS [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE]

    LOS ANGELES @SPIDERMANMARKLA  [ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETE]

    The instructions are as follows - We will be tweeting a series of locations. The first person to arrive at each and speak the password gets the assignment. Good luck.

    The assignment packages contain sweatshirts, a phone, and a set of 'for your eyes only' instructions

    So, the 'instructions' have been leaked via this pic on Twitter to @slashfilm, and they aren’t exactly very revealing. They read this:

    FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

    Keep this cell phone fully charged and within reach at all times.

    We’ll be contacting you with further instructions.

    In the meantime, find a friend you can trust.

    We need you both, remember, you must be 18 or older.

    And keep a handle on the hoodies, you’ll be needing them.

    Every hero needs a neighbourhood. We are the neighbourhood.

    Show your support.

    Now all 30 drops have been picked up, the page now reads this:

    All operatives have been selected and are standing by for further communication. 

    Stay vigilant, we will be in touch over the next couple of days. 

    UPDATE: One of the Atlanta spidey-hunters/operatives just got the call:

    Make sure to tweet us with the hashtag #markofthespiderman and hope to hear something new soon!

    QUICK WEBSITE AND COUNTDOWN UPDATE + WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN NEXT…

    If you go to http://markofthespider-man.com it now shows the countdowns in full, no need to use the pattern from http://markofthespider-man.com/prepare.

    Also, if you look at the source code, it reveals the exact time that the 6 countdowns are counting down to…all to the 14th Feb, Valentine’s Day

    [NOTE: ALL TIMES LISTED IN PST/GMT-8]

    NEW YORK - 07:00

    ATLANTA - 07:30

    DENVER - 09:15

    PHOENIX - 09:45

    SEATTLE - 10:00

    LOS ANGELES - 10:30

    And, here’s my theory for what will happen for Phase #2 of the viral.

    At those times, one by one, in the order above, the 6 statics on the main page will change to photos, giving us this time a visual clue for location where the next clues/packages will be. A bit like with Mouth Taped Shut giving us both a pair of coordinates and a Hipstamatic image of where we need to go.

    Sounds like a plan! So if you are in any of the 6 locations, check http://markofthespider-man.com at the time listed above for your city. Don’t forget to follow @markofspiderman and tweet with the hashtag #markofthespiderman!

  15. Notes: 4 / 2 years ago  from mark-of-the-spider-man (originally from alphabetigal)

    alphabetigal:

    High quality images of this page can probably be found elsewhere; if you have a better picture, please let me know! 

    Since the text is sometimes difficult to read in photos, I’ll provide transcriptions of the “important” articles whenever possible. Please note, any errors in spacing/punctuation/grammar are intentional; this article is typed exactly as printed.

    Main Article:

    Who Stands with Spider-Man?

    Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, affordable health care — these are among the many unfounded myths that have taken hold of the public consciousness at one time or another. But a crime-fighting man/spider hybrid? Perhaps our collective imagination has finally gone too far.

    “This letter will be the first of many, and the first letter is always the key.”

    Not so, says this journalist. The “Spider-Man” is real, and he has been occupying the hearts, minds, and discourse of our fairy city in a major way ever since the Daily Bugle reported on the emergence of a new website, MarkOfTheSpider-Man.com. Messages have been pouring in from every sector of the population; students, the elderly, animal lovers — they all share their hopes and concerns as to the motivations of this masked figure.

    But the most intriguing communique arrived before we went to print this morning. It is shrouded in mystery — no return address, no signature, no fanfare… but we believe it speaks volumes. Take a look:

    Spider-Man is our hero. This
    letter will be the first of many
    and the first letter is always the key.
    Suffice it to say,
    he has changed the game,
    punished the thugs, and
    reminded us how
    exciting justice canpossibly be. We 
    are his support system,
    ready for any
    eventuality. Join us.

    So, what are we to make of this unnamed movement? And how, exactly, are we expected to “join” them? As the letter suggests,there will likely be more news to come…


    Fun Notes:
     The “letter” received by the newspaper spells out “slashprepare”, which in turn leads to http://www.markofthespider-man.com/prepare. This in turn provides the combination for unlocking the countdown on the main site. 

    Before we knew this, though, we thought for a brief second that the pattern on the slashprepare website was somehow linked to the lines of pictures included in the binder. Unfortunately, that theory was quickly proven incorrect as there are 20 sets of six boxes and not nearly that number of pictures included in the binder.

    This is also where we started to become suspicious of the frequent lists of three; if you read the article, they seem entirely out of place. However, we can’t figure out how/if they are linked:

    Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, affordable health care
    Students, the elderly, animal lovers
    No return address, no signature, no fanfare
    Changed the game, punished the thugs, and reminded us how exciting justice can possibly be

    If you catch something we didn’t from this article, let us know here or on twitter. If you’re curious to see what the other articles read, let me know and I’d be happy to provide a transcription of what hasn’t been cut off by tears.
