Gwyneth Paltrow Has A Cameo In Spider-Man: Homecoming

25 June 2017 5:54 PM, PDT | 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 »

‘Star Wars’: Don’t Get Mad at Kathleen Kennedy For That Han Solo Shake-Up

23 June 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

When the “Star Wars” universe imploded earlier this week with the surprising news that Han Solo standalone filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller were leaving the project after completing nearly 75% of principal photography, initial reports immediately fixated on the most likely culprit for the split: disagreements with Lucasfilm head and “Star Wars” super-producer Kathleen Kennedy. While it seems unlikely that the “real” story of what went down behind the scenes — a true “three sides to every story” situation, as producer Robert Evans was fond of saying — will ever come out, Kennedy is at the center of reports about wild demands and on-set clashes.

One thing is clear, however — whatever Lord and Miller were envisioning for their “Star Wars” debut is not what Kennedy had in mind, and while we’re still mourning the “Star Wars” film that will never be, the veteran producer deserves all of the respect that goes with her decision. She’s the one in charge of maintaining the “Star Wars” legacy, and with good reason.

As the head of a massive studio and a high-powered producer with a slew of huge credits under her belt (“Indiana Jones” to “Star Wars,” “Lincoln” to “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” and that’s only scraping the top of a stuffed resume), Kennedy is in a rarefied position. That she’s a woman is even more unique, a gate-crasher who has earned her stripes over decades in the business, only to emerge as the principal brain behind the world’s biggest franchise.

Kennedy first entered the entertainment world in a roundabout way, infamously serving as director John Milius’ assistant after she graduated college and putting in some serious time producing a small local TV talk show in her native Northern California. At the time, Milius was producing Steven Spielberg’s “1941,” and Spielberg soon poached her to be his own secretary, a job she was apparently not great at (as it turns out, she couldn’t really type).

But from the start, Kennedy had a lot of compelling ideas, and Spielberg eventually brought her on as a producer. Just two years after their initial introduction, Kennedy co-founded Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment alongside her future husband Frank Marshall. Kennedy’s intelligence was remarkable, and so were her leadership skills, and she was soon named president of Amblin.

Plenty more big gigs followed, including the launching of The Kennedy/Marshall Company with her husband, big-time producing credits on a number of films (a number of which were directed by Spielberg), and her eventual role as co-chair of Lucasfilm alongside George Lucas. Kennedy’s track record is awe-inspiring, including over 92 film and television credits (an intriguing mix of blockbusters and prestige pictures) and eight Oscar nominations for Best Picture. In terms of pure money-making power alone, she’s behind only Spielberg and Marvel mastermind Stan Lee for domestic box office take (nearly $7 billion as of this writing).

After Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, she became both president and brand manager. If it’s “Star Wars,” it goes through her. The homogenization of franchise films is certainly an issue in an industry increasingly interested in churning out tentpoles, but a dedication to cohesion and a larger sense of story are essential elements for such wide-ranging series. That’s what Kennedy is tasked with overseeing, and it’s not always easy.

The Han Solo situation remains a weird outlier in an industry that has seen plenty of strange stuff go down; Kennedy and her cohorts are in mostly uncharted waters, though a similar situation did unspool over at Marvel in 2015. When Edgar Wright left his long-gestating “Ant-Man” after nearly a decade of work on the project, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was believed to have balked at Wright’s burgeoning vision, one that didn’t align with the larger aims of the McU. As with Lord and Miller, Wright left the project due to “creative differences.”

Feige later explained to The Guardian why he made that tough choice: “We sat round a table and we realized it was not working. A part of me wishes we could have figured that out in the eight years we were working on it. But better for us and for Edgar that we figure it out then, and not move it through production.” Feige’s choice was hard enough; Kennedy is almost unfathomable.

As IndieWire’s Anne Thompson noted earlier this week, “Kennedy’s purpose is to stay on course — as Kevin Feige does with Marvel — and keep the ‘Star Wars’ universe humming and intact as it spins into many orbits. She can take responsibility for miscasting in this case, because Lord and Miller are who they are and, once hired, should be able to do what they do.”

She has excelled at that, and while the Lord and Miller exit seems indicative of major behind-the-scenes drama, it may actually point in the opposite direction: that Kennedy is so compelled to do right by the brand that she’ll make a huge change in order to reach the necessary end goal.

Kennedy does still have plenty to learn about navigating the ever-changing waters of franchise filmmaking, in ways that extend beyond whatever led to the Han Solo fallout.

In November of last year, she drew ire over comments about the lack of women directors on “Star Wars” projects. Kennedy explained that, while finding a female director for a “Star Wars” film was a priority, they just hadn’t found someone with the right level of experience just yet — seemingly forgetting how many male directors they’ve employed who also haven’t come to the table with built-in blockbuster credits. At the time, Kennedy said, “We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do ‘Star Wars,’ they’re set up for success. They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience.”

Read More: Han Solo Upheaval: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s ‘Star Wars’ Exit

Later, she attempted to clarify her comments, responding to a question at the “Rogue One” press conference. “That quote was taken out of context,” she said. “As you can imagine, I have every intention of giving somebody an opportunity. So, if somebody actually moves through the process of making movies and wants to make a ‘Star Wars’ movie, and shows that they have actually stepped into the role on that level, of course we’re going to consider a woman. That goes without saying.” Kennedy’s criteria for a “Star Wars” filmmaker still seemed dead-set on only pursuing filmmakers who meet a criteria that sounds reliant on resume credits over passion and skill.

But Kennedy has both — an enviable track record and an obvious affection for the massive series she’s in charge of shepherding through impossible decisions. She’s already installed Ron Howard as the film’s finishing director, and every press release has insisted that the film will come out on time. Will it be worth it? We’ll have to see, but it’s clear that Kennedy will be front and center for whatever the final product looks like. After all, it’s her franchise.

Spider-Man movie spin-offs to include Kraven and Mysterio

21 June 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Jun 22, 2017

You want standalone movies for lots of different Spider-Man villains? Sony has you covered.

When news broke two years ago that Marvel Studios and Sony had reached an agreement to 'share' Spider-Man, allowing them to co-produce Spidey films that exist within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was a fair amount of rejoicing. Spidey was back where he belonged, and audiences were spared the shared Spider-Man spinoff movie universe that Sony had unconvincingly weaved into The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

At various points in time, a Venom solo movie was in development, and the immediate plan was to get a Sinister Six film together, focusing on a number of villains who had been teased in the aforementioned The Amazing Spider-Man sequel. But just because we're weeks away from the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which, at least from the trailers, looks like a return to form for Spidey and friends, Sony never really gave up hope that they had a shared universe of their own in the making.

With that in mind, we're about to get a Ruben Fleischer directed Venom movie, starring Tom Hardy. Then, Gina Prince-Bythewood will direct Silver & Black, focusing on Spidey supporting characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat. These seem like reasonable projects, as they're all characters worth trying to get off the ground whether or not Peter Parker makes an appearance.

But now a report from THR indicates that Sony wants even more. They're also considering solo movies for Spidey villains Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. While these are both classic Spidey villains created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, neither has the appeal or cult following of a character like Venom, and both might just seem somewhat naked without a web-slinger to face off with.

It's presumably early on the projects at the moment, and we'll bring you more details as we have them...

Rumoured Fantastic Four Reboot Planned At Fox!

21 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fantastic Four has not fared well so far in the movie world. Marvel's original first family, and Stan Lee's favourite creation, has been developed twice by Fox who have the rights to the series and its characters. It would be fair to say that neither of these efforts has struck a chord with fans, in fact the latest offering in 2015 is frankly an awful film and has seemingly wrecked the career of director Josh Trank, losing him the Star Wars Boba Fett directing gig in the process (though to be fair, his behavior was also a big part of that loss).

For Fox to hold onto the rights of these characters they must make movies, no matter how bad they are it seems. Fan's have long wished for them to allow the rights to revert back to Marvel/Disney in order for the characters, and villains, to be used within the McU. One universal truth is that Dr. Doom is one of Marvel greatest villains, and yet Fox have so far shown a complete misunderstanding of the character they have the rights to.

Related: Mads Mikkelson Walked Out Of His Fantastic Four Audition  

It now seems like Fox are planning to dip their toes in the well again. Bleeding Cool has heard from sources that Fox are getting ready for another shot, but with a completely different approach this time.

The outlet says that Seth Grahame-Smith has been hired to write the screenplay. Smith already has some history with this franchise, as he scripted a pass at the most recent Fantastic Four movie before Josh Trank decided to write his own screenplay instead. The outlet also says they have been told the focus for this reboot will be more kid friendly in the vein of The Incredibles, which is interesting. Many people have commented that The Incredibles is actually the best Fantastic Four movie to be released as it captures the spirit of the comic books so well. Apparently this new take will focus on telling the story through the eyes of the children of Reed and Sue Richards, Franklin and Valeria Richards, but Human Torch and Thing will be present as well. We can only assume this also means a full recast, the cast of the latest effort are far too young for this scenario, and the tonal change would be too stark to buy for audiences. I also don't think Fox would want any new movie to be associated with that disastrous effort.

If true, it's an interesting approach to take, as long as it doesn't get too campy, like the Chris Evans starring original attempts at cracking this franchise. Most importantly, can they finally deliver a Dr. Doom that lives up to the iconic status he earned in the comics? If it does not work out, Fox are free to give me a call as I have a really good outline for a Fantastic Four movie (I won't hold my breath), and if they mess up this third attempt, then frankly, "It's clobberin' time."

What do you guys think? Happy for them to take another shot, or do you just wish they'd give up and let Marvel have the characters back? Let us know in the comments down below.

Fox could be developing Fantastic 4 The Next Generation

21 June 2017 3:49 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Are you ready kids? Rumblings are afoot that we are in for a new Fantastic 4 movie that is to be based on the next generation with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies co-author, Seth Grahame–Smith penning the initial draft.

Although the last Fantastic 4 outing comprising of Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell completely bombed, the new version will fast forward a few years and focus on the offspring of Reed Richards and Susan Storm, Franklin and Valeria, but will still feature the Thing and the Human Torch. This has all the hallmarks of the studio looking to change its audience for a much younger one who could appreciate their efforts.

Grahame-Smith is no stranger to the Marvel universe; having penned The Spider-Man Handbook: The Ultimate Training Manual, an examination of Marvel ComicsSpider-Man, with an introduction by Stan Lee, and the Hulk issue of Marvel Zombies Return with artist Richard Elson. He also served as the co-creator, head writer and executive producer of The Hard Times of Rj Berger, a TV comedy series on MTV.   Could this hiring of Grahame-Smith be the much-needed inspiration Fox needs for this franchise? Only time will tell.

Although 20th Century Fox has so far failed in their attempts to win over audiences with the franchise to date the tonally new direction for the franchise will be met with some trepidation. Executive Producer Simon Kinberg had already stated that the studio still wanted to make another offering surrounding the family so it should have come as no surprise it was on the horizon.

Kinberg stated, “Yes, we would love to make another Fantastic Four movie, We feel like there’s a great Fantastic Four movie to be made and I think it would hue closer to the tone of the original, the source material, the comics, but we want to make that movie.”

No word has come from either Fox or Marvel.

Peter Takes His Driving Test in Spider-Man: Homecoming Teaser

20 June 2017 2:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though he has a coveted internship at Stark Industries, and moonlights as a celebrated superhero, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has the same everyday problems as most high school kids. One of these problems is highlighted in a new short film from Audi that ties into Spider-Man: Homecoming, where Peter goes to take his driving test, with the help of a high-tech Audi prototype that he borrowed from his friend Tony Stark. This will be the first of several new Audi-produced digital shorts that will lead up to the July 7 release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will feature the exclusive first look at the new Audi A8. The luxury sedan can be seen for the first time on-screen in the movie, but we have two new photos of this vehicle below.

Secrets Are Uncovered In Latest Round Of Spider-Man: Homecoming Promos; New Poster Is All About Parker And Stark

20 June 2017 7:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the moment Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first created Spider-Man, a wet-behind-his-ears superhero shackled with great power and great responsibility, all the way back in the 1960s, one of the recurring themes of Spidey’s saga is the ways in which Peter Parker juggles his dual identity.

By day, he’s a whip-smart student cramming to pass his exams, but by night, he’s a masked vigilante who helps to tackle crime on (and indeed above!) the streets of New York City. It’s a wildly entertaining juxtaposition that isn’t lost on writer-director Jon Watts, who is the man behind next month’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Angled to be a franchise reset, Homecoming is all set to become the sixth Spidey movie in 15 years – for what it’s worth, the creative team involved believe the Tom Holland-fronted actioner is the first, true Peter Parker movie – and though many »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Breaking Down All 5 End Credits Scenes

19 June 2017 7:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You may have heard the news that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would have five end credits scenes and thought, "Not possible." Well, it is possible. And Marvel did it. Five different sequences are spread between the credits for the film, meaning, no, you can't run to the bathroom and come back just for the bonus scene at the end. There's a new scene every two minutes, and one of them means something major for the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Here's everything you need to know, in case you want to leave the theater when the movie, you know, ends. Kraglin (Sean Gunn) inherits Yondu's magic arrow, but he doesn't yet know how to use it. This first scene is just a funny look at him trying to use his mind to control it and doing pretty poorly. Next up, we see Stakar (Sylvester Stallone) reunited with his fellow Ravagers. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Tracking For A Big Opening Weekend

16 June 2017 3:40 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Can Spider-Man: Homecoming restore the character to his rightful place at the top of the superhero genre? As you know, this is the third reboot of Stan Lee's classic character since Sam Raimi's original iteration back in 2002, leaving many to wonder how much damage was done to the brand by Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014. Additionally, Sony hasn't had a major blockbuster success since James Bond's Spectre in 2015.

Marvel also has a lot on the line, they need to prove that their mastery of the genre can extend to other studios. Marvel needs to maintain a positive relationship with Sony to ensure the character remains a cog in the ongoing McU. Returning the character to pop-culture prominence is good for everyone involved, obviously. Spider-Man will also appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War next year, so it will be interesting to observe his interactions with Iron Man »

Nathan Fillion & James Gunn Excited For The Possibility of Adding Wonder Man To Guardians

Recently we have learned that Nathan Fillion, star of the cult television series Firefly and the film Serenity, has joined the cast of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events for its second season.

Marvel Countdown: Meet the Villains of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

8 June 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There are only a few superheroes who have a villain roster as deep and as substantial as Spider-Man. Here we are at Spider-Man: Homecoming, the sixth Spider-Man film (but the first set in the established Marvel Cinematic Universe), and we’re still getting worthwhile Spidey rogues for the very first time. Homecoming introduces movie audiences to two baddies, Vulture and Shocker, who’ve been providing conflict for Peter Parker since the 1960s. Vulture first shows up in the second issue of Amazing Spider-Man (1963, from creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko). The villainous Adrian Toomes uses a magnetized green flight suit to swoop down and steal valuables from unsuspecting New Yorkers. Spider-Man is pulling double-duty, trying to thwart Vulture while also hoping to get the...
