Is Michael Keaton the Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

23 May 2016 1:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain America: Civil War is out and, Doctor Strange has wrapped production, so all eyes are on Marvel Studios slate of 2017 releases, and information about Spider-Man: Homecoming has been finally starting to pour in, though most of it has been rumors up until this point. We've known for quite some time that Cop Car director Jon Watts would be directing the first Spidey solo film that would be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the director took to Twitter yesterday to seemingly confirm some long rumored and much welcomed news. If the directors tweet is to be believed, it looks like Michael Keaton will indeed be playing the villain in Homecoming.

Though the director didn't use any words in his Tweet, that gif said more than his words ever could have. Knowing how Marvel is with their reveals, it would be very unlikely that this Tweet is anything but »

No Kingpin in Spider-Man: Homecoming Says Vincent D'Onofrio

21 May 2016 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, an interesting rumor popped up claiming that Vincent D'Onofrio was being positioned to star as one of the main villains in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The actor would reprise his role as Kingpin from Netflix's Daredevil, marking the first time a character from a Marvel TV show has shown up in one of the McU movies. But apparently their is no merit or weight to this idea. At least according to the actor himself. Answering a question on Twitter about his possible involvement with the Spider-Man reboot, D'Onofrio said this.

"Sorry folks but this is news to me. It would be great but I don't think it will happen. V."

Now, this doesn't 100% confirm that the rumor is false. There is always the change Vincent D'Onofrio simply can't give an honest answer at this point. But a follow up tweet sounds sincere. And most Marvel actors don't usually get fans to bother Marvel. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming to Introduce This Unexpected Marvel Villain?

20 May 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Holland just debuted his version of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and prior to actually seeing the film, many fans were starting to feel some fatigue with two reboots of the franchise taking place very near one another. Though Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both had their strong points, the consensus now seems to be that Holland is the best version of this character we've seen in a live action adaptation to date. His first solo movie included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is gearing up for production, and the rumors are starting to fly. Be warned, this article may contain information that could be viewed as spoilers, so be warned.

A recent report by JoBlo claims to have a lot of new information about the villains in the film and how they tie into the larger scope of the McU. As has been rumored for quite some time, »

Marvel’s Continuity Problem: Will we accept a reboot?

7 May 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on Marvel’s continuity problem, and whether fans will accept a reboot…

What seems like a ton of new quotes and interviews with various major Marvel players have been floating around this week as Captain America: Civil War opens in the Us, and head honcho Kevin Feige has been particularly vocal. After admitting they may finally be taking a Black Widow movie seriously, which throws some interesting new light on my recent ponderings about her future, and talking the motivations concerning casting The Ancient One in Doctor Strange which has come under considerable flack (surely if you *can* cast Tilda Swinton, you cast Tilda Swinton?), his most intriguing comments came when discussing the longevity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which throw up an interesting question – how exactly will they deal with the thorny issue of continuity down the road? Here’s what Feige said:

Michael Giacchino Will Score Doctor Strange Soundtrack

6 May 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just under six months until Marvel's second Phase 3 movie, Doctor Strange, hits theaters, the studio has brought in its composer, Oscar winner Michael Giacchino. The movie will mark his first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he is no stranger to superhero tales, having composed the scores for Pixar's The Incredibles and Disney's Sky High. While this is his first Marvel movie, the composer has a long history with Disney.

Michael Giacchino won his first Oscar for composing the original score for Disney Pixar's Up, and he was nominated two years earlier for his work on another Pixar classic, Ratatouille. He got his start composing music for video games, such as the game tie-in for The Lost World and another Jurassic Park game, Warpath. He eventually moved on to features with The Incredibles, Sky High, The Family Stone, Mission: Impossible III, Speed Racer, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, »

Marvel Responds to Doctor Strange Ancient One Casting Controversy

26 April 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two weeks ago, Marvel released the first trailer for Doctor Strange, which caused quite the divisive reaction amongst fans. While many enjoyed the footage, others took Marvel to task for casting Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, a character typically portrayed by an Asian male in the comics. Since then, Tilda Swinton and one of the movie's writers, C. Robert Cargill, have spoken out about the controversy. And today, we have an official statement from Marvel, which sheds new light on the story and the use of this particular character.

Tilda Swinton's casting wasn't met with too much controversy last year, with many praising Marvel for gender-swapping the role traditionally portrayed by a male. However, the trailer debuted just a few days before the first photo of Scarlett Johansson was revealed from Paramount's Ghost in the Shell, where the actress is portraying a role from a Japanese Manga, though »

Doctor Strange Writer Reveals Why Ancient One Isn't Chinese

24 April 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two weeks ago, Marvel unveiled the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange, which gave us our first full look at The Ancient One, played by Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton. The footage, paired with the first look at Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell, sparked a new "whitewashing" controversy, with several fans upset that both movies cast caucasian females for roles that, in the source materials for both movies, were ethnic characters. Last week, Tilda Swinton herself spoke out about the casting controversy, revealing that she was never approached to play an Asian character, but now we have a new perspective from one of Doctor Strange's writers.

C. Robert Cargill, who co-wrote the script with his longtime collaborator and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and Jon Spaihts, recently appeared on the Youtube podcast Double Toasted, where he shared his thoughts about the casting controversy. The writer compared »

What Can We Expect From Dr. Strange in the McU?

23 April 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming on Doctor Strange officially wrapped, and the first trailer having been released, we are finally starting to get a better picture of what we can expect from the film when it debuts this November. Cinelinx looks at what we know, what we hope for and what we expect from the movie debut of the master of the mystic arts, as played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Doctor Stephen Strange is one of Marvel Comics oldest characters, having been created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in Strange Tales # 110, back in July 1963. He was inspired by earlier magician characters like Mandrake and Chandu. His appearance was based on legendary horror film star Vincent Price. Dr. Strange has been a big part of many major Marvel storylines over the past 53 years. Stephen Strange is Marvel’s ‘Sorcerer Supreme’, also known as the master of the mystic arts.

Dr Strange: the first attempt to bring him to the screen

Nearly 40 years ago, Doctor Strange got his first shot at screen glory. We take a look back at the Dr Strange TV pilot...

Even the biggest superheroes had to start somewhere. Batman made his screen debut in a 15-part serial for Columbia, where he spent the entire time tussling with a ‘Japanese’ criminal called Dr Daka (actually Irish-American character actor J Carrol Naish). Superman also made his first live-action appearance in a 40s serial, with Kirk Alyn wearing some very large underpants as the Man of Steel.

Marvel’s roster of characters started to get their own shows in the 1970s, with Spider-Man leading the way and The Incredible Hulk following him with a successful, five-year run on CBS. Less widely remembered than either series, however, was CBS’ Dr Strange, which received just one 90-minute TV movie in 1978.

For many TV viewers, it would have served as »

Doctor Strange: what did we learn from its trailer?

The first trailer for Marvel's Doctor Strange has landed. Here's our breakdown...

All eyes might be on the forthcoming release of Captain America: Civil War right now, but as one promotional cycle comes to an end, the next starts: the first official footage of Doctor Strange has been released courtesy of its maiden trailer. And here's our breakdown...

Not every superhero needs their origin explained, but let’s be realistic: not everyone is as hot on Doctor Strange’s beginnings as they are on Batman, Superman and Spider-Man’s. The short version (and check out now if you’re worried about spoilers) is that an arrogant surgeon turns to mysticism when his hands are damaged in a car crash. This would be that car crash, and that’s why there’s a shot later on of his hands all trussed up, and later shaking uncontrollably.

'Doctor Strange' Set Photos Reveal Mads Mikkelsen's Villain

3 April 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, new set photos surfaced from Doctor Strange, which revealed stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor in action. Shooting continues in New York today, and CumberbatchWeb has posted even more set photos, some of which give us our first look at Mads Mikkelsen as the mysterious villain. Unfortunately, we don't know who exactly this character is yet, but as you can see in the set photos, he certainly has an intriguing look.

The actor is seen wearing intricate facial makeup around his eyes, and in some photos, he's seen alongside an unspecified woman, who also has the same makeup around her eyes. It's worth noting that the set looks quite similar to photos we saw earlier this weekend, so it seems that these unknown characters may be doing battle with the Sorcerer Supreme and Baron Mordo.
