Cate Blanchett Breaks Barriers As Marvel's First Female Villain: 'Hopefully There Will Be a Lot More'

1 hour ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Cate Blanchett is breaking barriers — evil ones.

The actress, 48, is stepping into the role of Hela, the goddess of death in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok — and she recently that she is actually the first female villain to appear in a Marvel movie.

“I didn’t realize until Marvel told me that I was inhabiting the first female Marvel villain onscreen,” the actress told E! News at Comic Con. “I thought, ‘Surely not.’ Well, no actually that’s true! There’s been many, many, many in the comic books, but they’ve been a little tardy in bringing them to the screen, »

Dylan O'Brien on Stepping into New Action Role Months After He Was Badly Injured on Set of Maze Runner

25 July 2017 5:09 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Dylan O’Brien, taking on the high-energy role of a CIA hit man was no easy task after he spent months recovering from an accident he suffered last year on the set of the Maze Runner‘s third film.

O’Brien, 25, was in the end stages of recovery when he began filming American Assassin, for which he went through intense combat training. Now, the actor admits he was hesitant to take on the physically demanding role so soon after he was hit by a car on the set of Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

Spider-Man: Homecoming closing in on $600 million worldwide

23 July 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming may be slipping down the box office charts, but the film is marching towards the $600 million mark at the global box office, with its domestic and international haul this weekend pushing the Marvel and Sony blockbuster to $571.7 million.

It hasn’t been completely plain sailing for the web-slinger; in its second weekend, Homecoming suffered a 61.3% drop domestically – the biggest weekend-to-weekend drop for any movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s currently only the twelfth highest-grossing chapter of the McU behind Iron Man on $585.2 million, and the lowest grossing Spider-Man movie to date.

To avoid that distinction, it needs to pull in a further $137.3 million, although it is yet to open in several markets, including China and Japan.

Some early concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming has surfaced online via Twitter, showing that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man may not have been the only Avenger featuring alongside Tom Holland’s Spidey in the wall-crawler’s first solo McU outing, as Tony Stark was originally going to call in some help during the Staten Island Ferry sequence in the form of Vision and War Machine.

Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art features a Scarlet Spider-influenced alternate costume

21 July 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a batch of unused concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring a Superior Spider-Man-influenced suit [check it out here], and now artist Ryan Meinerding has shared another early design for the webslinger featuring an alternate costume resembling Ben Reilly’s Scarlet Spider; take a look below…

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. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. »

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Review

21 July 2017 4:46 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

Children’s movies are brilliant. They’re the first experiences of cinema that many kids have, introducing you to a world where anything’s possible. I fell in love with going to the cinema after I saw Chicken Run for the first time when I was six, and even now films aimed at younger audiences, from Moana to Ponyo and My Life as a Courgette continue to delight and inspire me. Captain Underpants, well, not so much.

Whilst the film features a who’s who of Hollywood comedy royalty, from Kevin Hart to Ed Helms, they’re wasted on this bland cash-in on the popular book franchise – you can hear them now in interviews, saying how nice it is to be in a movie their kids can watch. Only Nick Kroll really had a chance to shine as the nefarious Professor Poopypants, and he did ham it up magnificently, »

Our Favorite Stay at Home Dads in Movies

20 July 2017 5:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The role of a dad has traditionally been to work outside of the home and bring home the steady paycheck in order to support his family so that he can be respected as a man, a husband, and a father. That role has been changing as of late and has taken on a new dimension in real life as well as in films. Stay at home dad films have been gaining  momentum ever since Michael Keaton made it look possible in Mr. Mom. The real challenge of a stay at home dad isn’t so much taking care of the house

Spider-Man: Homecoming almost featured the “With Great Power…” line

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Uncle Ben was entirely absent from Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot, screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have revealed that an early draft of the script for Spider-Man: Homecoming would have featured a nod to Ben’s iconic “With great power comes great responsibility” line.

“At the end when Happy [Jon Favreau] is in the boy’s room in school we had him say, ‘Oh yeah, Tony wanted me to tell you, “With great power comes… something, I forgot,”‘” Goldstein tells Yahoo Movies. “It was a little too meta.”

Perhaps we’ll get to see Uncle Ben passing on his wisdom in a flashback in the sequel, which currently has director Jon Watts in talks to return.

The Snowman: serious film by serious people – or least spooky serial killer thriller ever?

20 July 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The trailer suggests Michael Fassbender’s Jo Nesbø adaptation is a high-tension, dread-laden thriller with one problem: it’s full of snowmen

The Snowman, which is due for release in October, absolutely drips with pedigree. It’s based on a Jo Nesbø thriller about a serial killer with a disturbingly unique calling card: he leaves snowmen next to his victims. Originally due to be directed by Martin Scorsese, it’s a movie from film-maker Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) that stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Toby Jones, with a score composed by Jonny Greenwood. The message is clear: this is a serious film made by serious people. As its new trailer demonstrates, The Snowman is intended to be taken very seriously indeed.

That said, it’s got loads of snowmen in it. Loads of them. Which is a risk, »

Jon Watts in talks to direct Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel

19 July 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This probably won’t come as too much of a surprise given the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but THR is reporting that Jon Watts is now officially in talks with Marvel and Sony to return to the director’s chair for the as-yet-untitled sequel.

The Homecoming sequel is already earmarked for release on July 5th, 2019, meaning it will launch Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has previously revealed that Spidey is the perfect character to launch the next wave of Marvel movies, and that the plot will explore how Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is affected by the events of Avengers: Infinity War as he returns to high school for his junior year.

Watts had previously directed the horror film Clown and indie thriller Cop Car before making the leap to blockbusters with Homecoming.

Why Sony & Marvel's 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' is the Perfect Reboot

17 July 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Spider-Man finally swung home. Back in February of 2015, I wrote about why Spider-Man swinging back to Marvel Studios would be a good thing for the famed webslinger. Now, two years later, we have Spider-Man: Homecoming, the sixth Spider-Man film that actually feels like the first. The film, which stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as The Vulture, is exhilarating, extremely well-made and most excitingly of all, refreshing. It shows how you properly reboot a character like Spider-Man, cementing Kevin Fiege and Marvel Studios as creative powerhouses who truly care about these characters. Let's take a look at why Homecoming was the perfect Spidey reboot - and what's in store for him after this. To understand why Homecoming works so well means investigating why the last couple of movies didn't. That's why over the last few weeks I looked back at the previous six Spider-Man films ranging »
