Cosplay has moved beyond simple hobby into an outright dedicated art form with professionally-shot photos and carefully constructed, very accurate costumes. It is, in the eyes of some, the ultimate display of devotion to fandom. And after years of cosplayers taking over conventions, Marvel is giving some of the best ones some very cool recognition by putting them front and center on new variant covers of their comic books

Captain America: Civil War has a lot on its plate before you get to the part where it has to adequately introduce Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man and it make it matter that he’s punching some of our favorite superheroes in the face. Sure, Spidey is getting his own solo movie in 2017, but you know what they say about first impressions. While we ponder how the movie will bring Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can tear apart and reassemble a single scrap of news to keep ourselves occupied … and we now know just a little bit about one of Spider-Man’s action scenes.

Oh, Andrew Garfield. No one blames you for the creative and commercial failure of the Amazing Spider-Man movies. You would’ve made a fine Peter Parker. At times, you even were a fine Peter Parker. But you were saddled with poor screenplays and a director who was at constant war with his studio. You did everything that you possibly could with nothing. We remember your first big Comic-Con apperance. We know you’re a fan of the character. And we’re oh-so-sorry that this happened to you.

Before he stars in his own solo film for Sony, Tom Holland will make his big Spider-Man debut for Marvel in next spring’s Captain America: Civil War. Though neither film will tell Spider-Man’s origin, Holland’s Spidey will be young and inexperienced; the better to contrast with the more adult heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A young and inexperienced Peter Parker also potentially means a poorly dressed one; what kind of 15-year-old kid knows how to make an incredibly intricate superhero costume with multiple colors and webs and such?

Last night we got a brief update from Chris Miller on 23 Jump Street, with the writer / director revealing that he and partner Phil Lord will produce but not direct the sequel. Lord and Miller are currently busy with a few other major projects, including the young Han Solo Star Wars film and an animated Spider-Man movie for Sony. Although he initially didn’t provide updates on either of those projects, Miller had a few things to say later on following his appearance at The Last Man on Earth TCA panel.

We’ve still got a couple of years before the next Spider-Man reboot, but a new report suggests that we already know who the web-slinging hero will be fighting in his next outing. As previously revealed by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, it won’t be a villain we’ve seen on the big screen before — according to the latest rumor, that’s accurate.

With Marvel and Sony’s deal firmly in place to reboot Spider-Man yet again, one of our primary concerns has always been with the possibility of having to sit through yet another Spidey origin story. But we can all breathe a sigh of relief as the writers of the new reboot have confirmed that we will not have to endure a retelling of how Peter Parker became the web-slinging hero.

Well that was fast — though not entirely surprising. Captain America: Civil War has been filming for a few months now, and various set photos have confirmed that the film is basically Avengers 2.5, featuring just about every major player in the MCU. One of those characters will be our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland, who is set to make a cameo in the film ahead of his solo Spidey movie.
