‘Spider-Man 4’ Concept Art Reveals the Villains and Humor of Sam Raimi’s Abandoned Sequel

by Britt Hayes June 2, 2016 @ 8:40 PM
After delivering two great Spider-Man films back-to-back (and almost singlehandedly launching a new era of superhero franchises), Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 left fans and critics feeling a bit disappointed. With one too many villains, that famous Peter Parker dance sequence (which I actually like!) and reports of Sony’s meddling, Raimi’s third film in the series ultimately proved to be his last when he abandoned plans for Spider-Man 4 back in 2010 — leaving us wondering what his fourth film might have looked like. Thankfully, we don’t have to wonder (much) anymore.

‘Spider-Man’ Animated Movie Will Reportedly Feature Miles Morales

by Britt Hayes May 27, 2016 @ 5:22 PM
Leading up to the two most recent Spider-Man reboots, some fans expressed a desire to see the Miles Morales version of the web-slinger on the big screen instead of rehashing the same ol’ Peter Parker story. It looks like those fans may get their wish, as Morales is rumored to be the focus of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming animated Spider-Man film — which does make sense, as the project is said to be separate from Sony and Marvel’s reboot with Tom Holland.

‘Daredevil’ Star Vincent D’Onofrio Wants Those ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Rumors to Be True

It’s been a bit lively in Spider-Man-land over the past week, as new rumors have surfaced regarding some of the characters and costumes we might see in the web-slinger’s reboot. The latest report suggests that the villainous Tinkerer will be joining Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and although Sony already has Robert Downey Jr. on loan, there’s another Marvel star tossing his sizable hat into the ring.

The Theme That Ties Everything and Everyone in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Together

In other words, this movie is crowded. Maybe overcrowded. Marvel and Sony’s new Spider-Man (Tom Holland) steals the show with his wisecracks and web-swinging, but serves almost no narrative purpose. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) is only slightly more important to the story; his main function is to introduce the character to a broader audience before he gets spun off into his own standalone movie in 2018. The subplot involving the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) ties up some loose ends from the last Captain America movie, but it’s not really crucial to the film’s central conflict between Cap (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) over governmental control of the Avengers. (The Winter Soldier barely appears in the original Civil War comics.)

Tom Holland has officially taken up the Spider-Man mantle for Marvel and Sony, but he’ll never replace Tobey Maguire in the deepest, web-covered corners of our hearts. Following his debut in Captain America: Civil War, the consensus among fans and critics alike is that Holland makes for a fantastic Spidey. You might even say he’s an…amazing…Spider-Man. And it looks like he has one very awesome fan in particular who knows a thing or two about web-slinging.

What Marvel Got Right About Spider-Man That His Solo Movies Got Wrong

by Matt Singer May 3, 2016 @ 10:42 AM
Oh what a different 18 months makes. A year ago, last fall Spider-Man fans were facing an entire universe of Spidey movies they didn’t particularly want; a third Amazing Spider-Man about the continuing and not-particularly-exciting adventures of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, plus spinoff movies for Venom and the Sinister Six. Things got so bad for Spider-Man that when rumors began circulating that Sony was considering an Aunt May movie, Sony had to publicly dismiss those rumors as “silly” with “no validity whatsoever” because people thought that the company that made Amazing Spider-Man 2 might actually be dumb enough to make an Aunt May movie.

‘Spider-Man’ Star Tom Holland Wants Captain America to Appear in ‘Homecoming’

by Britt Hayes May 1, 2016 @ 7:57 AM
Not long after the initial rumor was reported, it was confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will be making an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming — returning Sony’s favor following Tom Holland’s MCU debut as the web-slinger in Captain America: Civil War. Since then, we’ve been wondering if any other Marvel characters would crossover to the Spidey reboot, and according to Holland, there’s at least one more hero he wants to see in his upcoming solo film.

About That Time Tobey Maguire Got Fired From Spider-Man and Was Replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal

It’s 2003. Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man has just become the biggest movie of the year, grossing over $400 million (at the time, one of only four films to achieve that feat). Maguire had just wrapped filming on Seabiscuit, a prestige film that would go...
