When word first emerged that we were going to be getting a Venom movie, people were excited at the prospect. It was always a popular Spider-Man storyline from the post-Secret Wars era. Then the next news hit: while it’s still a production by Sony (the company who holds the reins on the use of the […]
Diamond Select Toys has released their November solicitations, with them continuing to expand their line of Gallery statues. Dc Comics, Marvel, and Pacific Rim Gallery statues will be available, including a gorgeous Black Cat. Animal from The Muppets gets a $150 bust, and John Wick Vinimates are also up for order. Check out full details […]
Sony has put out a new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man which features J. Jonah Jameson and Peter Parker debating the politics of Spider-Man. It’s only just over a week until Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man hits PlayStation 4, and the media machine is certainly whirring. It’s pretty hard to miss advertisements for the game and it’s for good […]
Miles Morales is getting his own film in December, and Hasbro today started to reveal their toy line in support of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. No Marvel Legends yet, but plenty of other figures in both the six-inch scale and 12-inch scale are here, along with a playset and even a countdown calendar! I am […]
Infinity War hero Spider-Man debuted the MCU version of the Iron Spider suit. Now, the MAFEX version will see stores in April of next year. The super-articulated figure will have interchangeable hands, feet, and web pieces. Magnetic feet will be included for different types of posing, and there are six different spider legs to attach […]
Black Cat and Silver Sable team-up film Silver and Black has lost its release date. It was dated for February 8th, 2019. The film was set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. Captain Marvel screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Chaos Walking‘s Lindsey Beer were the ones who drafted the latest script. This would be a team-up […]
Kotobukiya has a new Spider-Man statue based off Spidey’s look in Homecoming, the hit MCU film from last summer. It will retail for $150 and ships this August. The statue has more of a textured look to it, just like the suit in the film. Peter is posed on some steel girders, on a bit […]
With more than a decade since Spider-Man last had a great solo film, it almost felt like those halcyon years of Sam Raimi’s first two installment might have been unicorns. But now it seems that director Jon Watts has led another one out of the forest and the drought is finally over with Spider-Man: Homecoming. […]
Finally! The web-slinger has seen fit to swing in and drop off a pre-Christmas present in the form of the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland is still pitch-perfect in the role, with Robert Downey Jr. along for the ride trying to talk the would-be Avenger out of trying to do too much too fast. We […]
There were whispers on the wind this week that Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man might turn up at The Game Awards or PlayStation Experience this weekend. Of course, before any show where games get announced, just about everything is talked about as a possibillity, but these were more prevailent. But, as if to prove you shouldn’t believe […]
Avengers: Infinity War feels like it is supposed to be the culmination of years of work at Marvel. In theory, it is going to be the movie where all the pieces come together after years of getting the universe in place. However, it seems one key player isn’t defintely in place. Marvel and Sony apparently went […]
I’ve always enjoyed Jon Favreau in the Marvel films. Happy Hogan is a delight when he is on screen, especially when paired with Robert Downey Jr. However, we will next be seeing the character elsewhere. It was announced not that long ago that Favreau would be returning to the character in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which seems like […]
So, this one could be something quite interesting. It seems that at Diamond Select Toys Minimates’ Panel, some news might have accidentally spilled out about more Spider-Man: Homecoming villains. As pointed out by @GriffiLightning, rather off-the-cuffly, panelists seemed to confirm Shocker and Tinkerer for the movie. It’s said that when talking about wanting to do […]
Marvel have been pretty tepid about getting into AAA games in a major way over the last few years. People have begged for quality titles featuring their characters, but it rarely came to pass. It looks like they are getting in big now though as they’ve announced that the often brilliant Insomniac Games are taking […]
Sarah Gadon is in. But is Mary Jane Watson out? It's a tangled web, appropriately enough.
It remains to be seen if Marc Webb will hang around the while. It seems unlikely he'd find time for anything else in between, and I can't imagine many directors wanting to spend the best part of a decade beating the same drum.
It seems that early designs for The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man were based upon Chris Cooper. It seems fairly likely, then, that he was attached to the role at some point, or at least on the Want! list. These images, courtesy of designer Aaron Sims, show how Cooper can be effectively morphed into increasingly […]
Directed by one Donald F. Glut, a film school contemporary of George Lucas who later wrote the best-selling novelisation of The Empire Strikes Back, this 1969 fan film might be the first live action interpretation of Spider-Man full stop. The basic tone of the thing isn’t too far off a Ray Dennis Steckler movie, but […]
Paul Feig is now The Director of Bridesmaids pretty much everywhere he goes, which is definitely preferable to Director of Grounded AKA Unaccompanied Minors, Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘s First Season Science Teacher or Dad at Car Wash from Bad Teacher. But he does have plenty of other winning aliases, from Author of Superstud: Or How […]
As premiered during the first episode of Ultimate Spider-Man on Disney XD, here’s a new, supershort, teaser for Tron: Uprising. Tron is looking for the next Tron? Sounds a bit “I’m Spartacus and so is my wife.” In a good way. Fight the power, little computer people.
