Is This The Title Of The New ‘Spider-Man’ Movie?

22 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The interweb went wild when news reached it that Sony had carved out a deal with Marvel for it’s hot [licensed] property was to join the likes of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for his next outing. There have been all kinds of questions following said announcement, like whether it will be an origin story (it won’t), whether Andrew Garfield will be replaced (he will), etc. etc. What hasn’t been answered is the title of the planned movie, set for release on July 28th, 2017. Until now. Maybe.

The ever reliable El Mayimbe from Latino Review has managed to potentially come across the possibly working title for the movie… Ready?

Spider-man: The New Avenger.

I like it. Here’s the scoop as revealed via Instagram.

Take with the tiniest grain of salt pending further confirmation. I’m being told the working title for »

Is The Spider-Man Reboot Titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger?

27 April 2015 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s no longer affiliated with Latino Review, scoopster extraordinaire El Mayimbe (aka Umberto Gonzales) is still working hard to break comic-book news for impatient superhero aficionados the world over. And yesterday, he emerged with a rather interesting rumor about Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot, which will bring the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe under the watchful eye of Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. According to El Mayimbe, the title of the pic is not Spectacular Spider-Man, as previously rumored, but Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Now, clunky as it is, that subtitle would allow Feige to bring Spidey closer to the McU and distance him from Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films. It would also confirm what many already suspect – that Spider-Man will become a member of the second Avengers lineup, which will be formed following the cataclysmic events of Captain America: Civil War.

Spider-Man reboot rumoured to be titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger

27 April 2015 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March it was reported by Latino-Review that Marvel and Sony’s new Spider-Man reboot would be going by the title of The Spectacular Spider-Man, but now we have another possible title, with former Lr writer El Mayimbe claiming on Instagram that the working title for the film is Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Of course, the film can’t be using both titles, and Latino-Review and El Mayimbe have been throwing out countless wild guesses, speculation and downright laughable “scoops” these past few months (Aunt May movie, anyone?), so don’t be too surprised if this one fails to pan out too. Chances are, they’ll be back with a third rumoured title soon anyway.

The new Spider-Man film is set for release in July 2017, with Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) thought to be in line to direct. According to reports, Timothee Chamalet (Interstellar), Nat Wolff (Paper Towns »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart.

Daredevil: More From Charlie Cox On Season 2, Joining The McU, & The Ben Affleck Movie

24 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We've already heard from Charlie Cox on all things Daredevil, but in this latest interview with HeyUGuys the former Boardwalk Empire actor explains how he found out the acclaimed show had been renewed for a second season. He's also asked one again about the rumored plans to have the character join the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the Avengers: Infinity War movies, and still claims to know nothing about it... but, he does reveal that he's contacted to appear should the studio decide to use him. With the first season of "Marvel's Daredevil" proving a smash success with both audiences and critics, Netflix and Marvel will continue to create further adventures of the Man Without Fear! Doug Petrie ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "American Horror Story") and Marco Ramirez ("Sons of Anarchy"), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners »

Charlie Cox interview: Daredevil, Avengers, Stardust 2

24 April 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Charlie Cox chats to us about the future of Marvel's Daredevil, Bullseye, the Avengers, Stardust 2 and, of course, Statham…

Warning: contains very mild spoilers for Daredevil.

Charlie Cox - you either know him as Daredevil’s brooding lawyer/vigilante Matt Murdock, Boardwalk Empire’s Ira volunteer Owen Sleater, and/or Tristan Thorn from the criminally underrated family film Stardust.

We met up with the immensely polite chap to talk about his experiences and future expectations of Daredevil, the future roles Matt Murdock could play in the McU, and other stuff besides.

Here’s the interview in full…

I was here yesterday for the Avengers interviews, have you had a chance to see the new movie yet? 

Not yet, I’m very excited to. Is it good? 

It’s very good. And because I’ve been watching that, and binging Daredevil at a similar time, I was wondering if you think »

23 April 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Since Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios officially announced that Spider-Man would become a shared property between the two studios, allowing him to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the internet has been a buzz with who would play the next incarnation of Peter Parker.

With Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) pegged to write and direct the upcoming Spidey film (and Sinister Six), here’s the top candidates in the running according to studio sources: »

Netflix Renews 'Daredevil' for Season 2

23 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Everyone is talking about "Daredevil," Marvel's new Netflix series that's become a cultural touchstone since its release earlier this month. So it should come as no surprise, then, that the streaming service has picked up the show for another season.

Netflix and Marvel announced the renewal earlier this week, noting that season two should debut sometime in 2016. The series will also get new showrunners for its second go-around, with Doug Petrie ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "American Horror Story") and Marco Ramirez ("Sons of Anarchy") subbing in for Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard.

Goddard will stay on as an executive producer for season two, alongside Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").

"Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis Hall, and Ayelet Zurer. It's the first of four planned Marvel-centric series coming to Netflix, with "A.K.A. Jessica Jones »

Marvel Confirms ‘Daredevil’ Will Return For Second Series

23 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Like many others, I’ve been enjoying the fantastic Daredevil and was under the impression that sadly this was a one-off series. Given that Marvel and Netflix had previously announced their plans to also release A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist before teaming them up for a Defenders miniseries, this seemed like a fair assumption. It came as a very welcome surprise then when the pairing took to Twitter to announce Marvel’s Daredevil would be returning for a second series next year.

Fisk was just the beginning. The first Defender is back for Season 2 of @Daredevil. #Daredevil pic.twitter.com/GuE30lK8qt

Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield & Three More Shortlisted for 'Spider-Man'

23 April 2015 6:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been a couple months since Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel Studios to share the iconic superhero Spider-Man, allowing him to enter the Marvel cinematic universe while Sony creates yet another franchise featuring a new version of Peter Parker. The last substantial update on the Spider-Man front pegged Drew Goddard to write and direct what will be the first film in a new franchise, beginning on the big screen July 28th, 2017. Since then, we've learned that Spider-Man will definitely be Peter Parker (not Miles Morales), but we've had no indication as to who may play the webcrawler. That changed today. The Wrap has learned that Sony and Marvel have narrrowed down their list to five prospects, and if you were hoping to see a non-white Spider-Man this time, even if he was still named Peter Parker, then you're not going to be happy.

‘Spider-Man’ Gets Animated In Brand New Standalone Movie

22 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Everyone’s favourite web-slinger has been rebooted onscreen more times than a prison football. Yet after two movie franchises, an upcoming appearance in Captain America: Civil War and another reimagining in the works (supposedly under director Drew Goddard), Sony aren’t quite done with creating new escapades for Spider-man. They’ve just announced an animated instalment that will plough its own furrow away from the established canon(s).

CinemaCon was the venue for the project to be announced, and it’s clear this won’t be just another hastily-drawn spin-off going straight to DVD. The studio have hired The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller to devise, produce and hopefully direct the new spectacular. No word on voice casting, though presumably some big names will be heading to Marvel’s recording booth.

It’s going to be a busy time for Peter Parker’s spandex-clad alter-ego. He’ll »

Sony Pictures and Marvel have reportedly whittled down their list of potential candidates for the upcoming Spider-Man film to just five names according to The Wrap.

The studio is expected to make test offers next week for the coveted role, with a decision expected in the next 2-3 weeks and a deal to then be hammered out.

Also on the list is "The Fault in out Stars" supporting cast member Nat Wolff, "The Impossible" scene stealer Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet who played McConaughey's son in "Interstellar", and Liam James who was the lead star of "The Way Way Back".

Phil Lord And Chris Miller Working On Animated Spider-Man Movie

22 April 2015 8:31 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having apparently developed superpowers of their own that let them split into multiple copies of themselves, writer/producer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are attached to yet another project. Sony used its CinemaCon presentation to announce that the duo will develop an animated Spider-Man film for the studio.The potential idea for a Lord and Miller Spidey ‘toon originally emerged back in January when various outlets reported on a summit to discuss the future of the Spider-Man universe. While the studio has since hatched a deal to let Disney and Marvel use the character in Captain America: Civil War and other potential McU titles, work is already being done in another new version of the character, with a plan in place to take Peter Parker back to his high school days. Drew Goddard is reportedly in line to make the movie for 2017.As for Lord and Miller, their version »
