Marvel to remain tight-lipped on Phase Four of the McU until Avengers: Infinity War concludes

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming set to release in a little over a week, Marvel film chief Kevin Feige has been out doing the press rounds, and found himself explaining that details on Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be relatively scarce until the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War.

Speaking to io9, Feige stated “I hope [the news comes] after that. I think there will be certain elements that start to come about, not the least of which is the already announced release date of the next Spider-Man film. But other than that we’re going to keep it very close to the vest because this is really about focusing on the unprecedented conclusion to a 22-movie overarching narrative.”

It makes sense to keep everything as tight-lipped as possible, as anything from film titles to renegotiated contracts can be seen as a spoiler in some way. Even so, the Internet »

Tom Holland would like to see a Spider-Man and Ant-Man team-up

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man’s current partner and mentor will be Tony Stark/Iron Man as seen in this July’s hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, but with reports suggesting that the 2019 sequel will see Spidey teaming up with another hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland has shared his thoughts as to which character he’d like to see joining the web-slinger.

Speaking to ScreenRant at a press junket for Homecoming, Holland stated “Ant-Man would be my favorite. I want to have like a bug bros session. I think it’d be really cool.”

Clearly, Ant-Man would make sense considering that both superheroes are insect related and are known for wise-cracking remarks, but let us below in the comments who you’d like to see Spider-Man paired with for his next outing…

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Laura Harrier wants to see Liz Allan become Firestar

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first Spider-Man film that feels like an ensemble movie. In every teaser and trailer seen so far, we get a sense that Peter Parker’s friends (and mentors) are a crucial part of his story in the film. These characters aren’t mere throwaways either: some of them go through some big evolutions in the comics.

Liz Allan for example, Parker’s main high-school crush, eventually becomes the superheroine Firestar. And Laura Harrier, the actress playing Liz, wants in according to Screenrant:

“I hope Liz get’s powers, because that’s what happens in the comics,” said Harrier. “She becomes like Firestar, and she can like light things on fire.”

With more Spider-Man movies on the way, and Marvel’s penchant for universe building, it wouldn’t be crazy to think that we may see her don a hero’s uniform in the future.

Avengers: Infinity War set photo teases destruction

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I don’t think anyone is surprised that there will be unprecedented levels of chaos and destruction featured in Avengers: Infinity War, but just in case you had your doubts here is a look at some of the on-set mayhem (courtesy of Reddit).

Although shooting is currently taking place in Atlanta, it appears that this split-in-half prop taxi will actually appear during the film’s New York scenes (Avengers: Infinity War is also expected to move shooting to New York at some point in the near future).

Watch Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie roast Spider-Man actor Tom Holland during an interview

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Holland has proven to be quite energetic during his various interviews leading up to the release of the Marvels first Spidey film Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland is a young actor, and his enthusiasm and aspirations are totally admirable, but some of his older co-workers seem a little tired of Holland’s on-set behavior… and his excessive use of hair gel, apparently. Revealed in a YouTube compilation created by user Shana Fierce, the actors give their opinion on “the little asshole” during an older interview…

While obviously a joke, it’s not hard to imagine the veteran Marvel actors having trouble dealing with someone as young as Tom Holland. But isn’t that absolutely perfect for the film? It’s why Holland’s Parker was so enjoyable to watch in Captain America: Civil War. It isn’t a stretch for Tom Holland to fit this role, and that is a beautiful »

Tom Holland wants Miles Morales in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although they were recently fired from directing the Han Solo Star Wars story spinoff, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are still creating an animated Spider-Man feature utilizing the Miles Morales interpretation of the web-slinger.

However, that isn’t stopping audiences from wanting to see a live-action interpretation of the character as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Peter Parker himself Tom Holland seems to agree with the fans.

Speaking at a press junket for Spider-Man: Homecoming (courtesy of ScreenRant), Holland was questioned about the possible inclusion of Miles, stating that:

“That would be something that I would be very up for doing, it’s something that I would really really hope to happen. I think Miles Morales is a great character, I think it would be fantastic to have an actor of color playing a superhero on screen and I just think it’s going to be something very »

Kevin Feige explains why Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is the best way to start Phase Four of the McU

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Late last year it was revealed that the first film in the McU following both parts of Avengers: Infinity War will be a sequel to this July’s hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has now explained why Spider-Man is the perfect character to kick off Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking to io9, Feige explained: “So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the McU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker? So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about. It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to »

Marisa Tomei is “all for” a solo Aunt May film

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back before Spider-Man was even announced as heading to the McU with a brand new actor portraying the web-slinger (Tom Holland taking over for Andrew Garfield), Sony was at a crossroads of what to do with the property considering that The Amazing Spider-Man movies were both critical and commercial flops. One of their reported proposed ideas was an Aunt May solo feature based upon a comic book exploring her days as a spy.

Naturally, that idea was shelved with the superhero’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War and the announcement of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but with the casting of Marisa Tomei as a ridiculously attractive interpretation of Aunt May (she’s already flirting with Tony Stark), Sony is in a position where they theoretically could market such a film if they were interested in making it.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Tomei was asked about those rumors and replied “What? You »

Gwyneth Paltrow Has A Cameo In Spider-Man: Homecoming

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Something Marvel fans have been wondering about for a while now is where the heck has Pepper Potts disappeared to? Over the three Iron Man movies, Tony Stark and Pepper seemed to have grown into an unbreakable couple, but then Captain America: Civil War dropped the bombshell that the pair had separated. After that, we thought we’d seen the last of Gwyneth Paltrow in the McU. As it turns out, though, we thought wrong.

That’s because the actress has a cameo role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. GeekTyrant‘s got a hold of the full cast list for the movie and it reveals that Paltrow is reprising the role of Pepper, marking her first appearance in a Marvel film since 2013’s Iron Man 3.

Her part in Homecoming makes a lot of sense from what we know about it. The trailers have revealed that Stark will play a »

Avengers: Infinity War Will Kill Off Some Major Superheroes

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Avengers: Infinity War still in production, it remains to be seen when the first footage will surface, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has teased that not all of your favorite Marvel heroes will live to see Avengers 4. While promoting Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters on July 7, Kevin Feige was asked if there will be any McU heroes that will be killed off in Avengers: Infinity War, which is slated for release on May 4, 2018. Here's what the producer and studio head had to say below.

"Yes. We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that's all we're thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we'll see."

Avengers: Infinity War will mark the “final chapter” for some Marvel heroes

25 June 2017 4:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel are set to serve as the culmination of everything we’ve seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, with Marvel suggesting we’ll be seeing a very different landscape in Phase Four as the focus shifts from some of the original Avengers towards the more recent additions to the McU.

Speaking to Joblo, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has confirmed that Infinity War will mark the “final chapter” for certain characters, although he refused to confirm or deny whether this would include Chris EvansCaptain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, instead deflecting the question by responding that: “We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so thats all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. »

Kevin Feige on Spider-Man, Sony’s spinoffs and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

25 June 2017 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two weeks to go before Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is out on the promotional campaign for the Marvel and Sony-produced reboot, during which he’s been talking about the future of the wall-crawler within the McU and trying to clear up the status of Sony’s Spider-Spinoffs.

“Right now, Spidey is in the McU and it’s just Spidey. Civil War, Homecoming, we’ve already shot a lot of Tom Holland’s scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we’re just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 – we won’t call it that, whatever it is – which is exciting because it’ll be the first McU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019,” Feige tells Joblo. “It’ll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. »

First Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions hit the web, suggest another winner for Marvel Studios

24 June 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel fans can breathe a sigh of relief! The first string of reactions from press members who have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming at an early screening have hit the web (no pun intended), and they claim that the summer blockbuster is a rip-roaring, crowd-pleasing good time.

Praise, in particular, is being directed towards the film’s John Hughes-inspired tone, diverse cast and Tom Holland, who many have described as the best on-screen Spider-Man yet. Even despite Marvel Studios’ spotty track record with compelling antagonists, Michael Keaton’s Vulture has been described as one of the stronger Marvel Cinematic Universe villains. Overall, if the previous three Spider-Man solo films (Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man) were examples of Spidey at his worst, Homecoming sounds like a return to form for the web-slinger. See the hugely positive reactions for yourself down below…

Spoilers: Spider-Man: Homecoming cast list confirms Jennifer Connelly, mystery roles and surprise villains

23 June 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony has released the electronic press kit for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which includes a cast list that reveals several new cast additions and surprise villains. Spoilers follow…

First up is the news that Jennifer Connelly is returning to the Marvel universe following her role in Ang Lee’s Hulk, and is set to play Karen/Suit Lady (the voice of the A.I. in Spider-Man’s suit, perhaps?). We also get confirmation that Gwyneth Paltrow is returning as Pepper Potts, as well as Angourie Rice’s role as Betty Brant. Zendaya’s character Michelle doesn’t have a surname listed, so that recent rumour about her true identity remains unconfirmed.

Also confirmed is the fact that we’ll be seeing two versions of Shocker in Herman Schultz (Bokeem Woodbine) and Jackson Brice (Logan Marshall-Green), while Michael Mando is listed as Mac Gargan, a.k.a. Scorpion.

Jon Hamm and Jenny Slate Spotted Out on Movie Date: They’re ‘Friendly,’ Says Source

21 June 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Is there a hilarious new celebrity power couple in the works?

Fellow funny, famous and single people Jon Hamm and Jenny Slate were spotted coming out of a movie theater in New York City last week, and social media is already pining for the duo to make things official. 

But for now, a source tells People that Hamm, 46, and Slate, 35, are just “friendly.”

Slate recently dated Chris Evans until they broke up in February. The actress cited the Captain America star’s fame as one of the reasons for their split. “Chris is a very, very famous person,” Slate said »

Newswire: Iron Man isn’t invited to the next Spider-Man movie, but a different Marvel hero will be

21 June 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark has been a huge part of the marketing for Spider-Man: Homecoming (especially on one particular poster), but he’s not going to become a regular part of the new Spider-Man movies. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iron Man won’t appear in the Homecoming sequel, but Sony has worked out a deal with Marvel Studios to get some “to-be-determined” superhero from the McU in his place. We have no idea who that might be, and THR doesn’t offer any clues, but there’s really only a handful of characters that would feel as appropriate in Spider-Man’s world as Tony Stark does.

Captain America seems like a reasonably safe bet, but Chris Evans already seems to be stretching the limits of how many superhero movies he’s willing to do. Thor would be weird, Hulk would be a little weird, Hawkeye would be »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr. And Mark Ruffalo Unite In Avengers: Infinity War Set Photo

21 June 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it’ll be interesting to see the Infinity Stones come together and Thanos rise to power, by far what we’re most looking forward to in Avengers: Infinity War is for all the various heroes across the Marvel Cinematic Universe to meet. Without any trailers to speak of as yet, we haven’t had much to tease the crossover, but a new behind the scenes snap goes some way in promising lots of superhero goodness to come.

Shared by Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., on his Twitter page, the photo sees the actor enjoying lunch with co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), who’s sporting a new costume, Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Benedict Wong (er, Wong). That’s three Avengers and one important supporting character in the same place. Who else wishes they were at that table as well?

Downey’s Tweet sports some fun hashtags, too. In particular, fans will note that the actor has created his own team name for Iron Man and Doctor Strange – #beardbros – to go alongside the #sciencebros tag used for Tony and Bruce Banner. The hashtag reminds us of a rather hilarious moment from the comics as well (see below), which we really hope finds its way into Infinity War in some form.

It’s important to note that Joe and Anthony Russo’s superhero extravaganza might not be the first time that the would-be Sorcerer Supreme encounters the Jade Giant. That’s because Cumberbatch is set to make an appearance as Doctor Strange in this November’s Thor: Ragnarok, which will also feature Mark Ruffalo’s big, green rage monster in a major role. It’s unknown how involved he’ll be, but we do hope that the two actors get to share at least a few scenes together.

In addition to the four stars above, Infinity War will also feature the rest of the Avengers (Chris Evans, Scarlet Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, etc.), the Guardians of the Galaxy (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, etc.) and practically everyone else we’ve ever met in the McU. It’s going to be one hell of a big film, and it’s set to crash into theatres on May 4th, 2018. »
