Spider-Man is being taken back to his graphic roots with a new animated movie due out in 2018.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman broke the news at CinemaCon on Wednesday (April 22) and revealed Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller as its director.

The pair - who boast such films as 22 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs under their belts - will also write and produce the project.

Sony has made it clear that the movie will exist independently of the live-action Spider-Man universe and set a July 20, 2018 release date for the film.

TV Performer of the Week: Vera Farmiga, Bates Motel

17 April 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

TV Performer of the Week is our new recurring series that focuses on one particular example of great acting in an episode from the previous week. New picks will post on Fridays. Fans of A&E's Psycho prequel series Bates Motel know that what has always made the show (now in its third season) a standout is Vera Farmiga. Her portrayal of Norma Bates is both dynamic and hypnotic, as she swings from moments of controlled determination to childlike helplessness. [caption id="attachment_423479" align="alignright" width="239"] Image via A&E[/caption] "Norma Louise" was a rare episode where Norma and Norman (Freddie Highmore) were separated, as Norma took off to Portland to gather her wits after both Dylan (Max Theiriot) and Norman encouraged her to speak to her estranged brother Caleb (Kenny Johnson). Feeling betrayed by Norman taking Dylan's side, Norma (given this and other pressures in her life) grabs up her things and leaves, with Norman screaming after her. »

Spider-Man is not in Avengers: Age of Ultron, says Kevin Feige

14 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has denied that Spider-Man will have a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Speculation has run rampant about the next appearance of the web-slinger since Marvel reached a deal with Sony to integrate the character into its films.

Captain America: Civil War was previously tipped as the most likely entrance point for Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although recently rumours have arisen about a possible Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo.

When Feige was asked directly if there would be a specially-filmed cameo for Spider-Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he simply told Collider: "No."

The producer nodded his head to seemingly deny the suggestion when it was asked a second time by the interviewer, but commented no further.

Feige has previously confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be high school age, but stressed that there will not be a third retelling of his origin story on the big screen. »

Bates Motel season 3 episode 6 review: Norma Louise

14 April 2015 1:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The ghost of Psycho felt very present in this week's Bates Motel episode, which fantastic in parts and frustrating in others...

This review contains spoilers.

3.6 Norma Louise

Bates Motel has always been a tricky show to judge. Is it meant to be campy horror in the vein of the original films or twisted family psychodrama? Sometimes it succeeds at both, other times it fails miserably and that hit-and-miss nature makes it hard to tell which of the show’s split personalities is the important one. This week’s episode, however, was a huge success on both fronts and reminded me that on this show, for every Arcanum Club there’s a moment like the one that ended Norma Louise.

Caleb has always been fascinating because of Bates Motel’s history of clumsy, one-note villains (still very much in effect with Bob Paris). I really hoped there would be some deeper complexity to Caleb, »

Bates Motel season 3 episode 4 review: Unbreak-Able

31 March 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Can't Bates Motel season 3 leave the distractions to one side and focus on its chief danger: Norman Bates?

This review contains spoilers.

3.4 Unbreak-Able

At one particular point in Unbreak-Able, I realised something. The show can tease us with the pantomime antics of the Arcanum Club all it likes, but as some point between last season and this one Bates Motel crossed a major threshold: Norman is no longer a protagonist. He is now a danger to everyone else on the show, and they are starting to realise it.

The moment that struck me was when Dylan, hurrying out of the house, turns to be faced with his brother, a jump scare that actually jolted me out of my seat. Norman has become legitimately terrifying, rather than just mildly creepy, and Freddie Highmore is selling the hell out of it. I had no idea what he was going to do upon »

Bates Motel season 3 episode 3 review: Persuasion

25 March 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

So far, Bates Motel isn't really breaking new ground in season 3, but even its quieter instalments bode well and keep things interesting...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3. Persuasion

There’s a great moment in Mad Men when Pete Campbell describes his extramarital affair as a ‘temporary bandage over a permanent wound’. This line always resonated as such a perfect description of feeling like you’re faced with an impossible problem and the ways in which we can clutch at any potential solution to escape. At the end of season two, Norman passed his polygraph test and this seemed like a brief victory for the fractured family at the heart of this series; yet the deeper problem remained. Norman is still irreparably damaged and as much as she might try to deny it, Norma knows this. The problem is that she can’t truly hide the fact from Norman, and her barely »

23 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite all of the talk and speculation to the contrary, it appears that when we get our next big screen Spider-Man, it will in fact be Peter Parker. And as the web slinger prepares to make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it sounds as though we.ll also be looking at a younger version of the character, as the studio has reportedly auditioned 16-year-old actor Mateus Ward for the role. According to Badass Digest, Ward, a teenage actor whose resume includes shows like Hostages, Murder in the First, and Weeds, has secretly read for the part of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As you may have noticed, he.s actually a few years younger than the likes of Dylan O.Brien, Sam Strike, and Freddie Highmore, all of whom have been mentioned in regards to the role, and are all in their early 20s. »

Ansel Elgort on Spider-Man rumours: 'It'd be a big commitment'

23 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ansel Elgort has addressed speculation linking him to the role of Spider-Man.

Sony is reportedly seeking an actor younger than Andrew Garfield to take over the role of Spider-Man in a new film rumoured to be directed by Drew Goddard.

Do we really need another Spider-Man?

The Fault in Our Stars star has been mentioned as a candidate for the role by multiple media outlets in recent weeks, but he appeared unsure of such a commitment in a recent interview.

"I like Captain America, I thought that was a dope film, really cool but I don't know, I've never done [a superhero role]," he told Screenrant.

He went on to say: "I think it would be a big thing to do and a big commitment."

Josh Hutcherson, Freddie Highmore and Donald Glover are among the actors who have expressed interest in playing the web-slinger.

Spider-Man will be featured in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »

Bates Motel season 3 episodes 1 & 2 review: A Death In The Family & The Arcanum Club

20 March 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Season 3 of Bates Motel looks to be continuing season 2's legacy in making this Psycho prequel must-watch TV...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 A Death In The Family, 3.2 The Arcanum Club

Bates Motel is a difficult show for me to watch objectively, as Psycho is my all-time favourite movie and I’m going to like just about anything connected to it (apart from the remake; that was just offensive). Unlike Hannibal, another series based on a horror property I love very much, I’ve never quite been able to figure out if I like Bates Motel because of its Psycho connection or because it’s a great show in its own right. But the fact that I’m asking that question at all probably answers it; Hannibal, after all, is unquestionably brilliant with or without an intimate understanding of the source material.

A key difference, however, is that Bates Motel is »

Others in the cast include Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, Nestor Carbonell, Kenny Johnson, Nicola Peltz, Ryan Hurst, Tracy Spiridakos, Kevin Rahm, and Joshua Leonard.
