Vulture Goes Ballistic in New Spider-Man: Homecoming Preview

26 May 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has unleashed a new TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which features a few interesting scenes that revisit Spider-Man's (Tom Holland) debut in Captain America: Civil War. We see footage of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting his new suit, presumably just before the iconic airport battle in Captain America: Civil War. We also see footage of Spidey recording himself in a cell phone video, as he's hiding out of sight before the airport battle takes place. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) calls out "Underroos," Peter puts down the phone and says he has to go, as we see him leap into action and steal Captain America's shield, from a different vantage point. But perhaps cooler than all that is we get to see Michael Keaton's Vulture step out of the shadows to become one of Parker's greatest foes yet!

There had been rumors that Captain America »

During Michael Keaton’s appearance on Ellen, a new clip debuted from Spider-Man: Homecoming which sees Keaton’s Adrian Toomes/The Vulture discussing with his associates what do with the alien scrap metal they’ve obtained from the Battle of New York while watching a news report on Tony Stark’s Department of Damage Control; take a look below…

First clip for Spider-Man: Homecoming web-swings its way online!

26 May 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This isn't something you hear everyday, but I've been waiting years for The Vulture to appear in a Spider-Man film. For real, you should have seen me on the day that Sony and Marvel officially announced that one of my favorite actors, Michael Keaton, was stepping into the role of Adrian Toomes Aka The Vulture. I freaked out. In fact, there might have been a celebratory dance involved. ... Read More »

See The Origins Of The Vulture In This New Spider-Man: Homecoming Clip

26 May 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The battle against Loki’s Chitauri army in and above New York City at the climax of The Avengers has had an impact all over the McU. We’ve seen characters seeking revenge for family members crushed by rubble in Jessica Jones and Hell’s Kitchen struggling to recover and rebuild in Daredevil, not to mention the psychological consequences for Tony Stark in Iron Man 3. Now, it seems that the consequences of this battle will continue to hit home in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In the clip above, we see Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes dealing with the ongoing cleanup operation, specifically salvaging the alien technology and shipping it off to Stark Industries for study. As we hear on the TV, experts estimate there are over 1500 tonnes of “exotic material” scattered across the city. And, as ominous music swells underneath him, Toomes makes the fateful decision to keep it, as “it »

Watch Ben Affleck Hilariously Imitate Christian Bale's Batman

26 May 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Affleck pokes fun at himself by doing his impression of Christian Bale's Batman voice for last night's Red Nose special on NBC. The charity was hosted by Chris Hardwick and featured a ton of celebrities from different fields giving their time to raise money for children all over the world. Affleck came on to answer questions from kids in the comedy sketch and the results are pretty hilarious. The fan debate over Affleck's Batman vs. Bale's Batman is no secret and will often elicit violent verbal jousts from said fans, so it's always nice to see the Batman stars have a little fun with the debate.

In the clip, a child asks for Ben Affleck to do the Batman voice and Affleck obliges, but the child is not satisfied. "No! Do it the way Christian Bale does it," the child says. Ben Affleck looks at the camera for a second, »

Critical Thinking: Why Do People Care So Much About Canon?

26 May 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on canon…

Movies are such an integral part of the creative experience. As children, when we’re first introduced to the medium, we don’t understand the complexities of cinema. We are simply awed by the amalgamation of vision and sound that brings us stories in a new and exciting way. It is the ultimate expression of the imagination. As kids we don’t understand that the cinematic experience is also providing us with a framework and rules to the storytelling process. The structure and architecture of cinema is slowly and subtly woven into our consciousness. We learn the rules without ever knowing we’re being taught.

I mention structure and framework because the cinematic experience is crafted in specific ways, even though these boundaries could be easily abandoned. We, the audience are willing to accept a certain amount of structure, coloring in the lines as it were, »

‘Silver & Black’: Gina Prince-Bythewood Becomes First African-American Woman to Direct Studio-Made Superhero Feature

25 May 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As Warner Bros. and their DC Extended Universe prepare to bow their first female filmmaker-helmed superhero feature with next week’s “Wonder Woman,” Sony Pictures appears to be getting similarly hip to the possibilities of picking genuinely diverse and compelling directors to helm their franchise properties.

Deadline reports that Sony is setting filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood to direct their “Silver & Black” — based on the Marvel characters Silver Sable and Black Cat — making her the first African-American woman to direct a studio-produced superhero film. Prince-Bythewood doesn’t just have the chops, thanks to her consistently stellar feature work on films like “Beyond the Lights,” “Love & Basketball,” and “The Secret Life of Bees” (all of which she wrote and directed), but she’s also got some hard-won superhero experience, having just directed the pilot for Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” Freeform series.

Spider-Man: Homecoming UK release moved up two days

25 May 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK fans have become accustomed to getting the chance to see Marvel Cinematic Universe movies earlier than our American friends, and it seems that the inclusion of Sony on Spider-Man: Homecoming won’t change that tradition.

As noted by Digital Spy, Sony has announced that the Tom Holland-headlined reboot has been brought forward to Wednesday, July 5th, two days earlier than it debuts in North America.

Just yesterday, we got a pair of two trailers for the solo movie, which is being directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and marks Spider-Man’s solo McU debut following his introduction in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Watch the new trailers here.

Another new Trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into action

25 May 2017 4:22 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, Sony and Marvel continued to stoke the flames of excitement for their superhero team up with a new Trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Having your friendly neighborhood web-slinger join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or McU) not just for this hybrid production and last year’s Captain America: Civil War, but for all McU outings going forward is a big deal. Still, you have to nail the standalone film first. If that movie doesn’t work, then you’re really nowhere with the character, despite a promising debut last spring. Luckily, this Trailer suggests a very fun flick. You’ll see it below, so sit tight a bit, as we’ll begin once again with a bit of discussion! Once again, for those not in the know, the film is a reboot of the iconic character. This one is set within the world of the McU, essentially following the events of »

Third ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Trailer and New One-Sheet Poster Arrive (Updated)

24 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The third and likely final Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer swung onto the Internet this morning with guaranteed fewer spoilers than the harshly received second one.

In this latest trailer we get to see more of Peter Parker dealing with the complexities of moonlighting as a superhero and making the grade at school. He's got help, but not enough to get past Tony Stark's "training wheels protocol."

Spider-Man's Stark-designed suit is full of techno-gadgets and even has a voice-enabled A.I. That's not Spidey and the trailer suggests that by film's end Peter will no longer rely on Stark's technology and fly by the seat of his Spider-Sense instead.

Update: Here's the quite different yet equally excellent Spider-Man: Homecoming international trailer!

Along with the trailer comes a fourth and unfortunately generic Photoshop head collage Spider-Man: Homecoming one-sheet movie poster.

What 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Trailer Does Right — And Where It Goes Wrong

24 May 2017 4:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Photoshop abomination poster aside, promotion for this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming continues to thrill fans by underscoring the difference between the new big screen wall-crawler and his predecessors, with just one problem: it might be selling the "friendly, neighborhood" thing a little too well.

Watching Tom Holland's excited Peter Parker juggle small-time crime and high school drama in the opening moments of the new trailer, it feels almost disappointing when Michael Keaton shows up as the villain of the piece, the Vulture. After all, we know what superhero movies — and Spider-Man movies especially — look like when it's »

The behind the scenes battles of Pirates Of The Caribbean

24 May 2017 2:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 25, 2017

The Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have not been easy films to make....

As Michael Bolton once belted out: “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow.” The Pirates Of The Caribbean film was a surprise sleeper hit in 2003, astounding the higher-ups at Disney who had long been sceptical of how a pirate movie, based on a ride at Disneyland, would appeal to audiences.

Off the back of this success, the sequels only got more ambitious and expensive in scale, with their use of practical effects and convoluted character dynamics serving to complicate the adventure format, with mixed results. It shouldn't shock you then, to hear that each of the movies released so far had some serious behind-the-scenes battles to make them shipshape.

The fifth and apparently final instalment, Salazar's Revenge (or Dead Men Tell No Tales), has had some very public battles before it has even been released, »

Terrible New Spider-Man: Homecoming Poster Released

24 May 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All in all, things are looking pretty good for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland comes at the webslinger having already proved himself in Captain America: Civil War and a steady stream of stylish one-sheets and fun trailers have successfully stoked hype around the film. But it looks as if Spider-Man’s marketing hot streak has come to an end now with this awful blancmange of floating heads that we’ve embedded for you down below.

Seriously Marvel, what’s going on here? On a design level, this is pretty much ‘baby’s first floating heads poster,’ with the cast confusingly jammed together without rhyme or reason. What on earth is with the tiny electric man emerging from the side of Michael Keaton’s head, or the bizarre insertion of the Washington Monument in the lower right corner? It even goes for the tired old “chuck a bunch of sparks on the »

See Spider-Man's New High-Tech Suit in 'Homecoming' Trailer

24 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Peter Parker shows off his Tony Stark-engineered suit's new tricks in the final trailer for the upcoming blockbuster Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This isn't your typical comic book Spidey suit: The iconic red-and-blue costume now boasts Iron Man-like vision and AI assistant, "576 possible web shooter combinations," a parachute and, its most insane feature, the spider icon on the superhero's chest has drone capabilities.

The trailer also offers more insight into Michael Keaton's villainous Vulture, with the Birdman and Batman actor portraying a scavenger who cleans up after the Avengers' battles. »

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man: Homecoming Trailer Is Crazy Fun

24 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a lively new trailer for Spider-man: Homecoming.

In his review for Captain America: Civil War, Jim Batts says:

“…the breakout new addition to the Marvel movie universe may be Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the amazing Spider-Man. Holland (so great in the 2012 disaster drama The Impossible), brings a vulnerable charm to Pete while exuding boyish enthusiasm (and lots of “smack talk” chatter) to ole’”webhead”, stealing every scene, and leaving us anxiously awaiting his screen return in Spider-man: Homecoming. Now this is our Spidey!”

This is bound to be one of biggest hits of the Summer!

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-man: Homecoming.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: Peter Parker Tries to Grow Up in New Trailer (Watch)

24 May 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s tough being a teenager — particularly if you’re Peter Parker dealing with Tony Stark’s Iron Man in the third trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” released Wednesday morning.

The first part of the trailer depicts Tom Holland’s high-school Spider-Man, who debuted in “Captain America: Civil War.” Here he’s just coming into his powers at the age of 15, flubbing several attempts to stop crime.

“Listen, Peter, there are people who handle this — can’t you just be a friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man?” asks Robert Downey Jr.’s Stark.

Later, Parker discovers that his powers have been reduced by the “training wheels protocol” and complains “I’m sick of Mr. Stark treating me like a kid.”

“But you are a kid,” his best friend Ned responds.

The trailer also shows the Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, emerging as a new villain and Spider-Man intervening in attacks on the Washington Monument »

Spidey Keeps NYC Safe in Latest Trailers for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

24 May 2017 7:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What are you hiding, Peter?" Sony has unleashed two more trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, hitting theaters in the middle of the summer. Tom Holland stars as (the new) Peter Parker, who was first introduced in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. This story continues with Parker returning from the events in that movie, still trying to figure out his place as a teenager in NYC. The focus seems to be entirely on the city, and it's cool to see him caring about stolen bikes and old ladies. The full cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Michael Keaton as The Vulture, as well as Donald Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Angourie Rice, Hannibal Buress, and Zendaya. I like the Us version of these trailers more, better footage. Looking forward to this. Here's the newest trailers (+ poster) for Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming, from »
