Pepper Potts to Return in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that dropped this morning, which offered a better look at the mentor/mentee relationship between young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Iron Man himself, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). We have also known for quite some time that Robert Downey Jr. will be joined by his first Iron Man director and actor Jon Favreau, reprising his role as Tony's bodyguard/driver Happy Hogan, who hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2013's Iron Man 3. Today we have word that Spider-Man: Homecoming will bring back another character we haven't seen since Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts.

While this report hasn't been confirmed, Lainey Gossip reports that, since Gwyneth Paltrow's contract with Marvel has expired, Sony Pictures had to pay the actress, which has reportedly become a "problem" for the studio, with the studio experiencing some »

The Game Continues In Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, And It Sounds Awesome

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

Jumanji was one of the surprise hits of 1995, combining cutting-edge CGI special effects and the inestimable Robin Williams into a wonderfully adventurous whole. Not to mention that the core idea of a magical board game that begins to affect the real world is brilliantly imaginative. A sequel, Zathura, was released in 2005, though now it’s primarily known as the gig that proved to Marvel that John Favreau was the man to helm Iron Man and birth the McU.

Now, the franchise is set to be rebooted with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. At CinemaCon 2017, Sony screened new footage from the film in addition to confirming some details about the plot. From what we understand, this new version inverts the premise of the original in that rather than elements from the board game wreaking havoc in the real world, the film shows people being sucked into the in-game jungle.

Details on Michael Keaton’s Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming revealed

27 March 2017 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming set to arrive online on Tuesday, USA Today has released a new image of Michael Keaton as the film’s main antagonist The Vulture, as well as revealing some details on the Marvel Cinematic Universe incarnation of the iconic comic book villain.

The site reports that Keaton’s Adrian Toomes “is a blue-collar sort who runs a New York salvaging company that cleans up after these messes. However, he becomes irked when after one altercation, a new government organization, founded by A-list businessman Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), steps in to take over. He and his crew — including the Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and the Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) — use scavenged alien artifacts and stolen advanced tech to put together amazing weaponry to sell to other criminals.

“Some people see themselves as victims — he sees himself a little bit like that,” states Keaton. “He probably »

How Vulture Is Connected to Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming

27 March 2017 12:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we showed you the Spider-tracer in a brief preview for the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, which debuts tomorrow. We've known for quite some time that the movie's villain is Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. Vulture (Michael Keaton). It has now been revealed that Adrian is a regular blue-collar worker, who runs a salvage yard that cleans up after massive superhero battles. We also have word that Toomes has a connection with Tony Stark himself, which leads him down this villainous path.

USA Today caught up with director Jon Watts, who says he wants to show the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the perspective of the "regular joe." The director, along with producer Eric Hauserman Carroll, also reveal that Adrian Toomes' salvage yard is no longer needed to clean up after these battles, once a new government organization, founded by Tony Stark himself, takes over these operations. Here's what producer »

Scarlett Johansson continues to prove her action hero chops with “Ghost in the Shell”

27 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There are two types of Scarlett Johansson roles that we’ve been getting over the past few years. One is affecting work in things like Her or Under the Skin, while the other is in action films, both of the Marvel ilk, as well as things like this week’s release Ghost in the Shell. I don’t mean this as an insult though. Johansson is possibly the best actress out there at transitioning between tugging at your emotions and entertaining you by kicking some ass. As such, this new release should continue raising her star wattage, paving the way for one of her future dramatic outings to finally get her that elusive Academy Award nomination. Ghost in the Shell is a science fiction / action film based on a very well regarded Japanese comic book. Set in the near future, it follows Major (Johansson), who is is the first of her kind. »

Spider-Man Visits Avengers Tower in 2 New Homecoming Posters

25 March 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready! A new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer is just around the corner. No release date has been announced for this all-new footage, but Sony and Marvel are teasing fans with a set of posters, which prominently feature the wall-crawler doing what he does best. After the first one-sheet for the movie emerged yesterday, we have two more courtesy of Imp Awards, as Peter Parker visits different landmarks around New York.

And oh, what a landmark! In this first teaser, we see Peter Parker clinging to the side of Avengers Tower. Perhaps he's trying to find Tony Stark for an upgrade to his spidey suit, which was created by Stark Industries. Or perhaps he's waiting around for his official membership card into the superhero group known as The Avengers. The second poster shows Parker visiting a less obvious tourist attraction, if you can call it that. Here he's seen hanging off »

Spider-Man: Homecoming gets another new poster

25 March 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After yesterday’s release of not one, but two posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel has debuted yet another one-sheet for the upcoming film. Unlike the previous two, which prominently featured the Avengers Tower, this one focuses more on Spider-Man’s home neighbourhood of Queens in New York City (though Avengers Tower can still be distantly seen in the background). Check out the new poster here…

Along with Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony is apparently moving forward with a Venom spin-off as well as developing a Black Cat/Silver Sable film, both of which will apparently be unrelated to Homecoming and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Beauty Or Beast: Is There Any Value In Disney’s Live-Action Remakes?

25 March 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The growing desire on the part of the House Of Mouse to wring every last remake opportunity from its entire back catalogue is something that sparks a number of debates about the evolution of cinema, and the part we play in that evolution as consumers. With 2015’s Cinderella having come and gone, and Beauty And The Beast now doing well at the box office, we’re currently staring down the barrel of at least a further 15 of these types of projects – featuring live-action re-imaginings of previously animated tales and characters. This being the case, it’s tempting to decry the dearth of new ideas and creations in Disney’s big screen output. But, while there is clearly merit to that argument, is there really no value to be found in these upcoming movies?

Disney’s developing slate of live-action re-imaginings is a mixture of remakes, sequels, and character-focused spinoffs – which »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Poster Takes Peter Parker Back to School

24 March 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Feast your eyes on a brand new, absolutely perfect poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming! The first trailer for Tom Holland's initial solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe debuted back in December, so it stands to reason that a new trailer should be coming very soon. But for now, Marvel has released this first poster, which features Peter Parker hanging out in his Spidey costume. But with a little bit of extra flair.

The poster was shared today by the official Spider-Man: HomecomingTwitter account. In the poster, we see Spider-Man laying by the river with his headphones on, seemingly drifting away in thought. In addition to having on his new Spider-man costume (courtesy of Tony Stark), he also appears to have on a school jacket of some kind, pointing to the struggle of him trying to balance his life as a teenager and his life as a superhero.

Spider-Man: Homecoming gets two new posters

24 March 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the midst of all the Justice League character posters and teasers we’ve been getting over the last couple days, we now have a reminder that there are other superhero movies incoming this year as Marvel and Sony have released two new posters of the anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. The two posters reinforce that this film takes place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Avengers Tower looms over the wall crawler in one, and sees Spidey climbing up it in the other. Check them them out here…

Its interesting just how much of a different feel each poster gives. The first reflects the fun and kid-like nature of Spider-Man, balancing high school with his super-heroics while the second poster is more typical of a superhero film, almost calling back to the look of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Its also funny how, despite Tony Stark’s prominent role in the trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, »

How ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Is Like Hybrid Disney Remakes ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘The Lion King’

24 March 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Disney’s got a great circle of life going with the hybridization of its animated classics.

It’s a different aesthetic, thanks to virtual production: animation has become more like live-action and live-action has become more animated. But it’s intensified with “The Jungle Book” (this years’s VFX Oscar winner) and “Beauty and the Beast.”

While “The Jungle Book” achieved a new level of photographic-based realism, with everything virtual except for Neel Sethi’s real-life Mowgli, “Beauty and the Beast” utilizes more live-action, but also emphasizes photoreal CG characters; the Beast (Dan Stevens), who is performance captured by Digital Domain 3.0, and the enchanted characters that inhabit the castle (created by Framestore).
