Marvel's 'Spider-Man' Director Teases Reboot Plans

28 July 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After months of speculation and rumors, Marvel and Sony Pictures confirmed that Tom Holland is playing the new Peter Parker in Spider-Man, with Jon Watts coming aboard to direct. While Tom Holland was one of the top contenders for quite some time, the studio's choice of Jon Watts, a relatively-unknown director, to take the helm was quite surprising. The filmmaker recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly for his new indie drama Cop Car, which hits theaters next month, where he describes the process of putting together a low-budget indie and then moving on to Spider-Man.

"I'm not really sure what happened. I had never been to Sundance before. I was nervous because that was the first time we were showing the movie to an actual crowd. [Marvel] got to see Cop Car and they really liked it. Now, I've got to make a slightly more expensive version. It's an opportunity to just »

The creative team for Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man is set now that the Vacation reboot writers have confirmed their involvement.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein spoke out over the weekend to confirm reports that they will pen Peter Parker's return to the big screen.

Sam Raimi has his say on Marvel's Spider-Man reboot: 'It's gonna be refreshing'

"We can finally acknowledge that," Daley told NPR. "This is the first time that we can say that we are writing it."

His partner Goldstein added: "We've been saying no comment for the last week… We're thrilled."

It's already known that the new Spider-Man movie will not be a straight origin story, instead focusing on a high-school age webslinger battling new franchise villains.

"He's a sharp kid and witty and kind of deals with the fact that he's an outcast and a geek through humour," Daley explained.

25 July 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Rr Martin revealed he is getting "tired" of Marvel's bad guys. The reason? They have the same superpowers as the heroes.

The famed Winds of Winter novelist cited the enemies of The Hulk, Spider-Man and Iron Man as his examples in latest entry LiveJournal Not A Blog.

Titled "Me and Ant-Man", Martin gave a review of Paul Rudd's movie Ant-Man, which debuted number one in the Us box office last weekend (July 17-19).

He wrote: "Also, while Yellowjacket [Ant-Man's antagonist] makes a decent villain here (in the comics he was actually one of Hank's later identities, after Giant-Man and Goliath), I am tired of this Marvel movie trope where the bad guy has the same powers as the hero.

Lucy Lawless quashes Xena: Warrior Princess reboot rumours

21 July 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Lucy Lawless has taken to Twitter to shut down the rumours that Xena: Warrior Princess is due for a reboot at NBC...

Update: The news of a Xena reboot had been on our site for less than an hour before someone pointed out a rather important fact - it isn't true. 

Lucy Lawless hurriedly took to Twitter after the story broke, writing that "news of a Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage."

Sorry for perpetuating the lies, Lucy Lawless. Can we still be friends?

If the idea of bringing back Xena: Warrior Princess resurfaces in a more legitimate way, we'll let you know. 

Here's our original story, for posterity's sake...

There’s no shortage of heroic TV properties at the moment. And there’s hardly a lack of re-imaginings and reboots in the televisual realm either. »

NBC developing a “modern reboot” of Xena: Warrior Princess

20 July 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Xena: Warrior Princess could be heading back to the small screen, with NBC in the early stages of development on a “modern reboot” of the cult 90s fantasy series.

According to the site, original executive producers Robert Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved with the reboot, which is currently seeking a writer, as well as a new Xena who has “the charisma and charm of Lawless and the smarts of The Hunger Games’ Katniss” in order to create “a sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation.”

At this point, it’s unclear whether original star Lucy Lawless will be involved, although THR’s sources claim that she’s wanted for both an on-screen role, as well as behind-the-scenes.

Xena: Warrior Princess began its life as a spinoff of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and was a huge success, running for a total of 134 episodes across six seasons. »

Xena: Warrior Princess Reboot In The Works At NBC

20 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even as Lucy Lawless returns to the small screen this fall for Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead, it appears that the pieces are falling into place for the actress to reprise the most iconic role of her television career. According to THR, NBC and NBC Universal International are plotting a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot, with original EPs Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi involved.

Sources warn THR that the project is in extremely early stages of development and is still looking for a writer to approach Xena 2.0 as a “modern reboot.” Lawless is reportedly being eyed for a role both on screen and behind the scenes – a logical next step, given how much geek cred the actress still possesses as a result of the part.

It’s also being reported that Xena: Warrior Princess would not be seen as a one-off revival like Fox’s 24 and X-Files series but as »
