Did Jennifer Connelly Secretly Join Spider-Man: Homecoming?

23 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With exactly two weeks left until Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters, it seems that a new mystery cast member has been unveiled. The IMDb page for Spider-Man: Homecoming has added Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Connelly to the cast, with the actress portraying "Karen/Suit Lady." This casting has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios or Sony Pictures, but this certainly wouldn't be the first time that news of a surprise casting addition happens just before a Marvel movie is released.

When Marvel announced the red carpet premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the studio made a list of cast members that have been confirmed to attend, as part of the tip sheet sent to members of the press covering the event. That tip sheet included two cast members who had not been previously announced, Julie Delpy as Madame B, who trained a young Natasha Romanoff to become the Black Widow, and Linda Cardellini as Laura Barton, the wife of Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). When production began last year on Captain America: Civil War, fans were surprised to find William Hurt as part of the cast, reprising his role from 2008's The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. It remains to be seen if Marvel plans on confirming this casting as we get closer and closer to the July 7 release date of this Spider-Man movie.

Aside from the IMDb listing, no further details about this character have been given, but if it is true, this won't be her first time starring in a Marvel movie. Five years before the Marvel Cinematic Universe started with Iron Man, Universal Pictures released Hulk, which starred Eric Bana as Bruce Banner and Jennifer Connelly as Betty Ross. When Marvel Studios released The Incredible Hulk in 2008, just months after Iron Man, Liv Tyler portrayed Betty Ross alongside Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, who was replaced by Mark Ruffalo in 2012's The Avengers. The actress is also married to Paul Bettany, who plays the iconic character Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It's worth noting that anyone can edit a film's IMDb page, so it's possible that this could have been added by someone who was given some inaccurate information. On the other hand, the movie has already started screening for members of the press, so it's also possible that someone could have seen the movie and then added Jennifer Connelly's character into the movie's IMDb page. Regardless, fans will find out in exactly 14 days whether or not Jennifer Connelly is part of this highly-anticipated Spider-Man movie. There has already been one Spider-Man: Homecoming early reaction, which claims its the best Spider-Man movie ever.

If Jennifer Connelly is part of Spider-Man: Homecoming, she joins a diverse cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as Michelle, who has been rumored to be the daughter of Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), a.k.a. The Vulture, but that report was shot down. The cast also includes Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Michael Cherus as The Tinkerer, Kenneth Choi as Principal Morita and Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds. Jon Watts, who made his directorial debut with the indie hit Cop Car, directs from a script by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, Jon Watts, Chris McKenna, Christopher Ford and Erik Sommers. Hopefully we'll find out more about Spider-Man: Homecoming as we get closer to the July 7 release date. »

Ethan Hawke Talks Working with Sally Hawkins in Maudie | Exclusive

14 June 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ethan Hawke is barely recognizable in Maudie, a new drama from Sony Classics. The veteran actor plays one of the most unusual, but eventually endearing characters of his storied career. Maudie Dowley (Sally Hawkins) was a diminutive, crippled woman who would become Canada's greatest folk painter. Maudie had juvenile arthritis. She was abandoned by her awful brother after her parent's death. Forced to live with a mean aunt, Maudie took her life into her own hands. She answered an ad in a local Novia Scotia store for a housekeeper.

Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) was an irascible fishmonger who lived in a tiny, 12 x 12 house. A solitary man of few words, he was surprised to see this tiny woman ask for employment. Maudie was a live in maid under tough circumstances. They had to sleep in the same bed. He barely tolerated her presence and was abusive at times. Maudie began to paint their little house. »

Exclusive: Gemma Arterton on Their Finest, and the joy of going to the cinema

19 April 2017 3:56 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Out this week is Their Finest, a film that celebrates the act of going to the pictures, which should really be viewed in that very setting. The Lone Scherfig drama takes place during the Second World War, chronicling the rise of a screenwriter tasked with lifting the spirit of the nation with propaganda productions, with a female touch. Played by Gemma Arterton, it was our pleasure, as it always is, to sit down and chat with the talented British star.

“I’d love for people to watch this and think ‘we should go to the cinema more often’, it’s a good thing to do,” she said. “It is a really special thing going to the cinema, the event of watching a film on the big screen and being moved by it, and looking around.

Pepper Potts to Return in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

28 March 2017 5:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that dropped this morning, which offered a better look at the mentor/mentee relationship between young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Iron Man himself, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). We have also known for quite some time that Robert Downey Jr. will be joined by his first Iron Man director and actor Jon Favreau, reprising his role as Tony's bodyguard/driver Happy Hogan, who hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2013's Iron Man 3. Today we have word that Spider-Man: Homecoming will bring back another character we haven't seen since Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts.

While this report hasn't been confirmed, Lainey Gossip reports that, since Gwyneth Paltrow's contract with Marvel has expired, Sony Pictures had to pay the actress, which has reportedly become a "problem" for the studio, with the studio experiencing some »

Awards Roundup: Honors for Christina Ricci, Julie Delpy, and Judith Light

22 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Christina Ricci in “Z: The Beginning of Everything

Seasoned show business veterans Christina Ricci, Julie Delpy, and Judith Light are all set to be honored this spring. Variety reports that the Vail Film Festival will celebrate women in film during its 14th edition, specifically Ricci and Delpy. And the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center will present its Monte Cristo Award to Light for her work in theater, according to Broadway World.

Ricci will accept the 2017 Vail Film Festival Renegade award, Variety writes. Ricci currently stars as Zelda Fitzgerald in the Amazon series “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” and also serves as an exec producer. The actress has been working steadily since 1990 in projects like Patty Jenkins’ “Monster,” “The Ice Storm,” “The Addams Family,” “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Ally McBeal.”

Delpy will receive the Vail Film Festival Vanguard award for her work (onscreen and off) on over 50 films. Delpy co-wrote and starred in Richard Linklater’s “Before Sunrise,” “Before Sunset,” and “Before Midnight,” and earned Oscar nods for Best Adapted Screenplay for the latter two. Delpy has written and directed “2 Days in Paris,” “2 Days in New York,” “The Countess,” “Skylab,” and “Lolo.” She will next write, direct, and star in “My Zoe.”

“I can’t say I like every film by any male director,” Delpy has said, “which is actually a paradox because no one in Hollywood — no producer in Hollywood — is looking into a woman to be the next [Stanley] Kubrick , because no one believes a woman is a genius. They believe that any young guy that comes up with one Ok film can be the next Kubrick, but not a woman.”

The Vail Film fest — which takes place March 30 to April 2 — is also set to open and close the fest with the female-helmed “Carrie Pilby” and “Sticky Notes,” respectively. Starring Bel Powley as a young woman who can’t adjust to life after college, “Carrie Pilby” is directed by Susan Johnson and written by Kara Holden. “Sticky Notes,” written and directed by Amanda Sharp, centers on a backup dancer (Rose Leslie) who goes home to Florida to care for her father (Ray Liotta).

Elsewhere, director Thomas Kail will present Light with the Monte Cristo Award at a gala dinner May 21, Broadway World writes. The event will be hosted by Preston Whiteway, Executive Director of the O’Neill.

“The O’Neill annually bestows its Monte Cristo Award on a prominent theater artist whose lifetime work has had an extraordinary impact on American theater, in memory of its namesake,” according to the source. Past recipients include Meryl Streep, Zoe Caldwell, playwright Wendy Wasserstein, and director Barbara Gelb.

Light first performed at the O’Neill’s 1977 National Playwrights Conference in Wasserstein’s “Uncommon Women and Others.” “Beloved the world over, Judith Light brings artistry of the highest caliber to every role she takes on,” Whiteway emphasized. “We are delighted to recognize her with our 2017 Monte Cristo Award.”

Light, who stars in Jill Soloway’s Amazon series “Transparent,” made her Broadway debut in “A Doll’s House.” She’s also acted in the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Wit in New York” and “Hedda Gabler.” Light took home Tonys and Drama Desk Awards for her work in “Other Desert Cities” and “The Assembled Parties.” Known for her work onscreen in “Who’s the Boss?” “Law & Order: Svu,” and “Ugly Betty,” Light is currently acting in the play “God Looked Away” alongside Al Pacino.

Awards Roundup: Honors for Christina Ricci, Julie Delpy, and Judith Light was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy encapsulates the way love feels in a way few films can match. Twenty years in the making, the story of Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) follows the beginning (“Before Sunrise,” 1995), re-beginning (“Before Sunset,” 2004), and eventual strain (“Before Midnight,” 2013) of one relationship. And the Criterion Collection has released a 2K restoration of the three films, along with hours of bonus features and behind-the-scenes footage.

Who would have thought that a ’90s ‘slacker’ independent filmmaker would make such a strong romantic statement? Well, it’s not all romance in the old sense. In what must be a project of love, Richard Linklater examines the ongoing love life of Jesse & Céline, in three movies spread across eighteen years. The conversations are as free- flowing as are the cameras roaming through European back streets. Thanks to the commitment of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, the in-depth relationship seems real.
