There’s always a weird disconnect with age in Hollywood. You hear actors often suggesting, “Oh, I’m getting too old for this part,” while actors routinely play parts where their character is much, much younger. Andrew Garfield was 28 when he started playing the teenage Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and yet when the “Spectacular Spider-Man” reboot was announced, much of the news was about how the character was going younger and going back to high school (he had barely left, Parker graduated in ‘”Amazing Spider-Man 2”). Robert Downey Jr. has said much the same, that he’s getting too old to play Tony Stark now that he’s going on 50 (next year). But 50 is the new 40, and Rdj has signed on for even more Marvel films, including a major role in “Captain America: Civil War,” so we’ll be seeing him as Iron Man until at least “Avengers: »

The movie chronicles a naval captain being forced against his will to navigate a cocaine-filled submarine past the Us coast guard.

I thought it had been determined the new Spider-Man, which will allegedly be making his debut in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War, was going to be of the Miles Morales variety, a version of the comic book character of African American and Puerto Rican descent. However, a new rumor from Badass Digest reports Mateus Ward, a 16-year-old white actor currently starring on TNT's "Murder in the First", auditioned for the role would suggest otherwise. Of course, they may just have a blanket request out for any actors of a certain age without any kind of race requirements, but the other aspect of this report people are concerned with is the actor's age as this would give fans a genuine teenager in the role rather than the 25-year-old Tobey Maguire when the first Spider-Man was released or the 29-year-old Andrew Garfield when the first The Amazing Spider-Man was released. »

Ansel Elgort has addressed speculation linking him to the role of Spider-Man.
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."
Spider-Man will be featured in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »
Ever since Spider-Man.s upcoming Marvel and Sony collaboration was announced, and Andrew Garfield's departure was confirmed, a bevy of young actors have been linked to the superhero role. 23-year-old Dylan O.Brien is still believed to be one of the front-runners for the part, but it turns out that there.s one big reason he probably won.t be able to play the webbed-wonder: he.s already busy filming Teen Wolf. Dylan O.Brien has been portraying Stiles on Teen Wolf for the past four seasons. In fact he.s currently doing the rounds promoting the upcoming new batch of episodes for the show. During his chat with Celebified O.Brien was asked the hypothetical question of if he was actually cast as Spider-Man would he be able to work on the blockbuster because of his Teen Wolf commitments? And those of you who thought that O.Brien »
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features: Director: Marc Webb Andrew Garfield »
Despite the over-arching image of comic books as endless tales of spandex clad do-gooders fighting off criminals, monsters and aliens, they also deal with real social issues like bullying, addiction, grief and – sometimes unfortunately – sexuality.
As a result of the latter – particularly in recent years – relationships between men and women, and indeed between characters of the same sex, have been explored on every conceivable level in comics.
A lot of the time, these relationships are satisfying and heart-warming for readers as with Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, Clark Kent and Lois Lane, and Apollo and Midnighter, all of whom have had some truly memorable moments on-panel for all the right reasons.
However – and just like in the real world – not every aspect of every relationship in comic books is beautiful. Raunchiness between comic book characters might be becoming more prominent, but that also means that increasingly awkward, weird, »

In one of the more bizarre rumours last year, it was speculated that Sony were planning on doing a spin-off movie in their Spider-Man franchise that would focus on Sally Field’s Aunt May. It was quickly debunked and nothing further was ever said of it, but with the news of Spider-Man getting another reboot treatment and joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is no completely out of the question.
“It was fun because it was just a great group”, she said, adding that Andrew Garfield was the “most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I’ll find him.”
The Huffington Post on the other hand asked her about the spin-off rumours, which she dismisses quite emphatically. “Aunt May spin off? »

The Spider-Man reboot means it's farewell to Sally Field's Aunt May. Not that she thought the spin-off movie was going to happen either
One of the oddest rumours to spring up last year was that of a proposed spin-off for the Aunt May character. As part of Sony's then-planned Spider-Man universe, we were told, we were getting Aunt May: Origins (or whatever it would have been called).
The rumour was debunked in about the time it took for most of us to stop chuckling at it, but then the story was indicative of where the Spider-Man movie series had ended up towards the end of 2014. A little bit lost, with any rumour feeling plausible.
Since then, of course, Marvel and Sony have got together to chart a firmer course for the Spider-Man movies. Spider-Man is now part of the Marvel cinematic universe, is expected to appear in next year's Captain America: Civil War, »
Way back in November, a report surfaced that Sony Pictures was developing a Spider-Man spinoff based on Sally Field's Aunt May character from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The project was never confirmed by Sony, but even if it were, Sony decided just a few months later to scrap all of its Spider-Man projects (including The Sinister Six and Venom) to reboot Spidey once again. The new Spider-Man will first appear in an unspecified Marvel movie, most likely Captain America: Civil War, before a new Spider-Man saga hits theaters in 2017. As it turns out, not even Sally Field was aware of the Aunt May spinoff, as she revealed during an interview at SXSW with The Huffington Post.
"Aunt May spinoff? And make her the lead? What would you do with her? She has no special powers whatsoever. She was a housewife waiting for the kids to come home. »
While attending the South by Southwest Film Festival this week, Sally Field was asked about Sony and Marvel rebooting the Amazing Spider-Man movies, in which she played Aunt May. The two-time Oscar-winner had implied that she'll miss Andrew Garfield the most, telling E! Online that he was "just perfect" as Peter Parker, and that he's the "most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I'll find him." With the Web-slinger set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Field then reflected on the experience: "It was fun because it was just a great group." Like Garfield, Sally Field playing Aunt May was one of the best aspects of Marc Webb's now-abandoned franchise. However, not too long before the new plans for Spider-Man were announced, Sony reportedly considered an Amazing Spider-Man spin-off focusing on Sally Field's character. "Aunt May spin-off? And make her the lead? What would you do with her? »
It feels like it was just yesterday that Andrew Garfield was slinging his firsts webs in The Amazing Spider-Man. But as we now know, the Spidey franchise is going to be rebooted again. Sony has made no announcements about who will play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego. Sally Field played Peter's Aunt May in the two Garfield flicks. Calling Garfield "just perfect," the acting icon told me at the South by Southwest premiere of her indie drama Hello, My Name Is Doris, that he is the "most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I'll find him." The movies also co-starred Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as her police captain dad and Martin Sheen as Peter's »
"I just went in with Paramount with Mike Tyson. So I'm going to do the Mike Tyson story. Listen, to be in the same room pitching Mike Tyson to Paramount, Mike Tyson is on one side, I'm on the other side and doing Mike Tyson at the same time. And Martin Scorsese at the helm. This will be the first boxing movie that Martin Scorsese has done since 'Raging Bull.'"

Enough time has lapsed since the arrival of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that we can all pinpoint the sequel’s shortcomings with relative ease. Marc Webb’s film strayed dangerously close to Spider-Man 3 territory, too concerned with setting up bland character arcs and lumping in an unnecessary amount of villains to focus on the one thing that really mattered: story.
In fact, said story was originally meant to feature Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter and Gwen, yes, but also Shailene Woodley as Mary-Jane Watson. Sporting the character’s iconic crimson-red hair, the actress filmed a number of small scenes for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that were later cut out as the sequel’s running time ballooned.
However, now that Sony and Marvel are pushing ahead with a reboot of the web-crawler, the Divergent star has revealed that she would like another crack at the role that never was. »

Following the big Spider-Man news last month, we’ve heard plenty of speculation about Sony and Marvel’s plans for the wall-crawler. Several actors have been said to be in contention for the role, while it’s also been reported that Drew Goddard reportedly set to write and direct The Spectacular Spider-Man for release in 2017.
Well, today has brought more rumours on the Spider-Man casting front, with a tweet from former EastEnders star Sam Strike about landing a role in a major U.S. blockbuster leading several sites to report that he may be set to succeed Andrew Garfield as the wall-crawler.
As it happens, rumour specialists Latino-Review have debunked the story, stating that he’s “probably got cast” in X-Men: Apocalypse or Deadpool, and that Sony and Marvel are still actively reading teen actors to play a fifteen-year-old Spider-Man.
Update: Well, it turns out he’s not Spider-Man, and »

At a press conference for his upcoming action movie Run All Night (starring Liam Neeson), director Jaume Collet-Serra was asked about the production and when we can start hearing some movement. His answer?
“No, no. There’s nothing”.
He then told reporters that questions about Akira should be directed to Warner Bros., who it appears is holding up the start date. But it’s not just the studio that is holding back Collet-Serra from his movie, but the fact he is looking for a bit of time off after filming Run All Night back-t0-back with his previous Liam Neeson action movie Non-Stop.
“I truly will not make a decision on a »
