Spidey struggles with his parachute in Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art

17 August 2017 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel illustrator Ryan Meinerding has taken to Twitter to share three pieces of concept art from Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring the scene where Spidey becomes entangled in his web parachute after being dropped above a lake by The Vulture; check them out here…

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3 share Japan box office

15 August 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming has failed to come out on top during its opening weekend in Japan.

Japan might not have the market power of China in the box office world, but it’s still an important location for Hollywood’s biggest films to do well in.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the latest blockbuster to open in the market but it has ended up splitting the top spot with Despicable Me 3.

Homecoming may have debuted number one by box office takings, bringing in $4.1 million to Despicable Me 3‘s $3.7 million, but Japan ranks its box office by admissions, not money earned.

Debuting last weekend, Homecoming had 290,000 admissions which is below Despicable Me’s 328,000. And considering Despicable Me 3 is in its fourth weekend, this isn’t the result Spider-Man would have hoped for.

This was, however, 7% better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which finished its Japanese run with $28.7 million (not accounting for »

The Spider-Man: Homecoming poster happened completely by accident

14 August 2017 4:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the best posters to come out for Spider-Man: Homecoming was the laziest one: A sleeping Spider-Man, clad in school jacket, with headphones on. The poster encapsulates everything that makes this Spider-Man different from the previous incarnations. It was perfect.

What you may not have known is that the poster is all just the result of a very tired Tom Holland. An Instagram user going by the name of therealspideyman posted an interview clip where Tom Holland reveals the true origin of the poster.

“Interesting story about that poster is that is actually me asleep,” said Holland. “That’s not part of the movie, that’s me in-between takes asleep. We were shooting this scene and I was just really tired that day, and I was just asleep on the floor, and the photographer took a picture. So when they made that the poster, I was like ‘What! What the hell, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming tops $700 million worldwide

13 August 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This weekend, Marvel Studios added another notch to its belt, as Spider-Man: Homecoming passed $700 million in ticket sales at the worldwide box office. Homecoming has become the 8th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to pass the milestone and already topped the box office totals of such recent Marvel releases as Ant-Man and Doctor Strange

The film still lags behind this summer’s other two superhero releases, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Wonder Woman, which brought in $861 million and $797 million. While Guardians’ box office run is practically over, Homecoming and Wonder Woman still have a little bit of gas still left in the tank. On top of remaining domestic (Us and Canada) sales, Wonder Woman will debut in Japan at the end of the month, likely pushing it way past the $800 million figure, and Homecoming is due out in China next month. 

Homecoming sits as the fourth highest-grossing Spider-Man film domestically, »

Donald Glover “not ruling out” a future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe

10 August 2017 1:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were around any group of people talking comic book movies back between 2010-2014, then you probably heard at least one person passionately arguing that Donald Glover (Atlanta, Community) should play Miles Morales (another Spider-Man in the Marvel Universe) in a live-action Spider-Man film. This all began when Glover himself was campaigning to play the web-slinger prior to Marc Webb’s reboot The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield. Since then, obviously, the web-slinger has been loaned back over to Marvel, and we have a shiny new Spidey in the form of Tom Holland.

Perhaps as a bit of fan-service, and a nice gesture to Glover himself, Jon Watts included Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming to play character Aaron Davis: Uncle to Miles Morales himself!

In a recent actor profile by the Hollywood Reporter, Donald Glover shed some light on how he got involved with Spider-Man: Homecoming, and also »

Tom Holland responds to Kirsten Dunst’s Spider-Man: Homecoming criticism

3 August 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few weeks before the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, original Spider-Man trilogy star Kirsten Dunst shared a few choice words for the reboot, accusing Marvel and Sony of “milking that cow for money”. Well, speaking to Movie’n’co UK (via Cbm), our new Spider-Man Tom Holland has responded to Dunst’s comments, offering a rather diplomatic response:

“You know, she’s entitled to her own opinion and I’m not one to judge at all. I definitely am not doing this movie for the money. I mean, it’s a job that I think anyone would do regardless of what you were getting paid, you know? All I know is I had the greatest time on this movie and I absolutely loved it and if she doesn’t want to go and see it, I don’t really care. I don’t dislike her in any way for what »

Here’s a close up look at Peter Parker’s Iron Spider suit from Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War

27 July 2017 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

At the conclusion of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark offering Tom Holland’s Peter Parker a brand new suit, the Iron Spider – and while Peter turned it down, as we now know from the Avengers: Infinity War footage, he will be donning the new costume when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes do battle against Thanos next year.

Well, thanks to Art of VFX, we’ve got a look at the new Iron Spider suit from Homecoming, as VFX supervisor Dominik Zimmerle discusses its creation for the Marvel and Sony produced reboot.

Spider-Man: Homecoming closing in on $600 million worldwide

23 July 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming may be slipping down the box office charts, but the film is marching towards the $600 million mark at the global box office, with its domestic and international haul this weekend pushing the Marvel and Sony blockbuster to $571.7 million.

It hasn’t been completely plain sailing for the web-slinger; in its second weekend, Homecoming suffered a 61.3% drop domestically – the biggest weekend-to-weekend drop for any movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s currently only the twelfth highest-grossing chapter of the McU behind Iron Man on $585.2 million, and the lowest grossing Spider-Man movie to date.

To avoid that distinction, it needs to pull in a further $137.3 million, although it is yet to open in several markets, including China and Japan.

Hollywood Doppelgangers: Is It Tom Hardy or Logan Marshall-Green? (Photos)

23 July 2017 4:44 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tom Hardy, star of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and Logan Marshall-Green actor “Spider-Man: Homecoming” can be really, really hard to tell apart. They were both born in the mid-’70s — Tom Hardy in London and Logan Marshall-Green in South Carolina (with a twin brother!). But they often seem interchangeable in the roles they’ve played on both big screen and small. Can you tell them apart? Round 1: Scraggly bearded villain Logan Marshall-Green in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017) / Tom Hardy in “The Revenant (2015). Round 2: Blockbuster sci-fi hero.

Some early concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming has surfaced online via Twitter, showing that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man may not have been the only Avenger featuring alongside Tom Holland’s Spidey in the wall-crawler’s first solo McU outing, as Tony Stark was originally going to call in some help during the Staten Island Ferry sequence in the form of Vision and War Machine. Take a look at the concept art here and let us know in the comments below whether you’d have liked to see these characters making an appearance in the scene…

Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art features a Scarlet Spider-influenced alternate costume

We’ve already seen a batch of unused concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring a Superior Spider-Man-influenced suit [check it out here], and now artist Ryan Meinerding has shared another early design for the webslinger featuring an alternate costume resembling Ben Reilly’s Scarlet Spider; take a look below…

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).

Spider-Man: Homecoming almost featured the “With Great Power…” line

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Uncle Ben was entirely absent from Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot, screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have revealed that an early draft of the script for Spider-Man: Homecoming would have featured a nod to Ben’s iconic “With great power comes great responsibility” line.

“At the end when Happy [Jon Favreau] is in the boy’s room in school we had him say, ‘Oh yeah, Tony wanted me to tell you, “With great power comes… something, I forgot,”‘” Goldstein tells Yahoo Movies. “It was a little too meta.”

Perhaps we’ll get to see Uncle Ben passing on his wisdom in a flashback in the sequel, which currently has director Jon Watts in talks to return.

Jon Watts in talks to direct Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel

19 July 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This probably won’t come as too much of a surprise given the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but THR is reporting that Jon Watts is now officially in talks with Marvel and Sony to return to the director’s chair for the as-yet-untitled sequel.

The Homecoming sequel is already earmarked for release on July 5th, 2019, meaning it will launch Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has previously revealed that Spidey is the perfect character to launch the next wave of Marvel movies, and that the plot will explore how Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is affected by the events of Avengers: Infinity War as he returns to high school for his junior year.

Watts had previously directed the horror film Clown and indie thriller Cop Car before making the leap to blockbusters with Homecoming.

Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters discuss original plan for The Vulture

17 July 2017 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spider-Man: Homecoming spoilers follow…

Having originally been earmarked for Sam Raimi’s abandoned Spider-Man 4, Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. The Vulture, finally made his big screen debut this month in Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and chatting to Yahoo screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley have revealed how they originally envisioned their take on the character.

“Once we started talking about Vulture, it was clear that the version in the comics wouldn’t do, where he was this bald old man,” said Goldstein, revealing that they chose the Vulture from a possible 40 characters. “It just never felt terribly scary on film to us. So we thought, ‘All right, let’s make him more of a middle-aged guy.‘”

Daley went on to state that the original plan was to have the Vulture as a science teacher at Peter’s school: “He was still stealing from Damage Control, but »

Marisa Tomei describes deleted Spider-Man: Homecoming scene featuring Peter Parker and Aunt May

11 July 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you felt like there wasn’t much Aunt May in Spider-Man: Homecoming, you’re not alone in that thinking. Actually, there appears to be a fairly crucial scene to the dynamic regarding the relationship between Peter Parker and Aunt May nixed. Speaking to The Huffington Post, Marisa Tomei described a scene which drew parallels to the lives of the two:

“There was something going on in the neighborhood, and there was a little girl in distress, and I saved her, and Peter saw me save her, so you kind of saw that he got part of his ethics from her … Then I come home, and I don’t even tell him that that’s what happened, and, of course, there’s all this stuff that he’s not telling me. So he’s like, ‘How was your day?’ And I’m like, ‘It was fine,’ but really I was »
