Spider-Man: Homecoming promo art offers first look at Shocker

19 February 2017 5:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we’ve all seen Michael Keaton’s Vulture in the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Adrian Toomes isn’t the only villain set to cause trouble for Tom Holland’s wall-crawler in this July’s Marvel and Sony-produced reboot.

Spidey is also going to find himself going up against The Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) and Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine), and now thanks to some promotional artwork from the New York Toy Fair, we’ve got our first look at the latter in full costume; take a look here, and let us know your thoughts on the design in the comments below…

19 February 2017 3:28 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Spider-Man: Homecoming set to swing into cinemas this July, Lego has unveiled two of its upcoming Lego Marvel Super Heroes tie-in sets in the Atm Heist Battle (76082) and Beware the Vulture (76083), the latter of which includes a mystery character whose identity Marvel and Lego are looking to keep secret for the time being.

Atm Heist Battle features Spider-Man, along with two Bank Robber minifigures, dressed as Captain America and The Hulk.

Beware the Vulture includes Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Vulture and a myster character.

If we had to hazard a guess as to the identity of the top secret minifigure, we’d go for The Tinkerer who is being played by Michael Chernus, although it could also be Bokeem Woodbine’s Shocker.

New Spider-man: Homecoming Merchandising Artwork Offers Up A First Real Look At The Shocker

18 February 2017 7:50 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Even though we've already seen Bokeem Woodbine use some kind of gauntlet in the international Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer released last December, we haven't exactly received any sort of official confirmation from Marvel Studios that his character is, in fact, Herman Schultz a.k.a. the Shocker. However, assuming he is, the bigger question was whether or not he would actually be seen suiting up in the Shocker's classic black-and-yellow costume or if that reveal would be saved for the 2019 sequel.  Well, as it turns out, yes, someone will definitely be suiting up as the Shocker when Homecoming swings into theaters this summer. Thanks to some promotional artwork spotted at the New York Toy Fair earlier today, we've received our first real look at the Shocker's fairly comic-accurate costume, which brings back the black-and-yellow while also taking a few liberties with the vest. The new art also seemingly lines up what »

The Night Crew: This Old School Siege Movie's got Fangs [Review]

3 February 2017 10:13 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

After more than two years of being shelved by its domestic distributor The Night Crew, starring Luke Goss, Bokeem Woodbine, Paul Sloan, Luciana Faulhaber and Danny Trejo, has finally been unleashed on action fans.

Due to the delayed release I wondered if the quality of the film might be a bit shaky, but I was dead wrong. Not only is The Night Crew a balls-to-the-wall siege movie with a nifty supernatural twist, but it's also the best collaboration yet between writer Paul Sloan and director Christian Sesma (Vigilante Diaries).

TV Review: ‘Legion’ on FX, Starring Dan Stevens

1 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s nothing wrong (and often quite a bit right) with TV’s mainstream, tried-and-true superhero modes, but those whose tastes lie in that direction may want to seek their cape fixes elsewhere: In look, style, and tone, “Legion” is not interested in an incremental update to what is offered by solid shows like “Supergirl” and “Luke Cage.” 

Legion,” a Marvel-inspired drama from “Fargo” creator Noah Hawley, is not timid. It offers a jittery take on many of the genre’s familiar themes, and it hurls them together with such boldness that the entire concoction ends up carrying quite a kick. Like I said, it won’t be for everyone, but those who are pulled into the surreal, jagged orbit of this distinctive drama are likely to stay there for the full eight-episode run. It is, literally and figuratively, a trip — and it’s often an exhilarating one. 

Hawley’s work sometimes has a formal chilliness to »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Weird Trailer Is Totally Bizarre

29 January 2017 1:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Sony Pictures finally unveiled the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, which was widely well-received by fans and critics alike. Sony hasn't confirmed when the second trailer will be unveiled, but today we have a 'Weird Trailer' for the film, which brings back the first two actors to play the web-slinger, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While this trailer is essentially the same footage, there are a lot of bizarre items edited into this footage, including Minecraft characters, Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn, Batman, Kung Fu Panda and much more.

This weird trailer is just the latest in a series from YouTuber Aldo Jones, who debuted a weird trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy back in October. That trailer was given the "seal of approval" by director James Gunn, but as of now, it isn't clear if anyone involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming has seen and/or approved of this trailer. »

First Spider-man: Homecoming Action Figures Reveal A Close-Up Look At Peter's Homemade Costume

26 January 2017 5:45 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Captain America: Civil War gave us only a glimpse of Spider-Man's homemade costume, but the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming confirmed that we'll get a closer look at it in his solo outing this July. However, an early sneak peek has found its way online today thanks to Hasbro, and as you can see, it's a very different look for the wall-crawler. In fact, it may remind you of a certain someone! We're obviously talking about Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider, though the colour scheme is quite a bit different to the comics. There's also a few other variations of both Spider-Man and The Vulture.  Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., and almost countless others, Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts and will be released on July 7th, next year.   »
