It’s still a bit strange that we’re getting a third Spider-Man franchise already — the second reboot in three years, and the second reboot since Sam Raimi kicked off the franchise with 2002's Spider-Man. Following Marvel and Sony’s highly-anticipated deal to collaborate on the new reboot of the character, Raimi himself is weighing in with his thoughts on the deal and his faith in the future of Spidey.

Let’s get real here: Being a superhero sucks. You get the crap kicked out of you on a regular basis. The police chase after you and accuse you of being a criminal. The media writes negative stories about you and calls you a public menace. You can’t hold down a job or maintain a stable love life, because you’re always leaving work or dates at a moment’s notice to save the world. You can’t charge any money for your efforts, because heroes are supposed to be selfless (and therefore dirt poor). There’s no union, so there’s no health insurance either (just think of the cost of the dental work to repair all those broken teeth). It’s a miserable, thankless life full of dedication, honor, and sacrifice. Yuck.

Recently, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has been talking up the Spider-Man reboot, comparing the intended tone to something along the lines of John Hughes’ teen movies in the ‘80s. Have Marvel and Sony found the right writers to deliver that promise? The studios are eyeing the writers of another upcoming reboot to help reshape the web-slinger’s franchise.

If you’re heading out to a theater to see Ant-Man this weekend (and if you’re not, you really should check out Trainwreck), you’ve probably got a few things preoccupying your MCU-loving mind — for instance, where might one spot potential Marvel Easter eggs in the studio’s latest superhero film?

Wait, Does 2005’s ‘Fantastic Four’ End With a Shot of Doctor Doom’s Metal Penis?

There is a reason Fox is rebooting the Fantastic Four just a decade after Marvel’s First Family made their big-screen debut. Actually, there are a lot of reasons. The first Fantastic Four franchise, which lasted just two movies over three years in the middle of last decade, was kind of a nightmare. It featured bizarre characterizations, laughable special effects, instantly dated pop-culture references, and impossibly dumb plot twists.

Back in April, Amazon sent an e-mail to customers claiming that Avengers: Age of Ultron was available for pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray and would include an “extended edition”. The online retailer quickly retracted that statement saying that nothing had been officially confirmed by Disney and/or Marvel. Now, director Joss Whedon has had his say on the upcoming Avengers 2 DVD and can confirm that there will be no extended or director’s cut of the film, mostly because he’s “super f---king lazy”.

Did you know that Marvel has been working on an Ant-Man movie since the late-1980s? Stan Lee originally pitched the concept to New World Entertainment (then Marvel’s parent company), but they turned the idea down because Disney had just released Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. This is just one of the little facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which proves size matters with Ant-Man!
