What Is Tony Stark Doing in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

28 September 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've known for several months that Robert Downey Jr. will return as Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but very little is known about how he will fit into the story. Today we have new photos from the set in Queens, New York, which show Tony Stark's car and some advertisements that reveal this Avenger is gearing up for something huge in the Big Apple. If these photos are accurate, then it seems this movie will feature a new Stark Expo.

A Reddit user spotted advertisements for the new Stark Expo in Queens, with this fictional event set to take place between October 17-28, 2018. We don't know exactly if Peter Parker (Tom Holland) will be a guest of Tony Stark at this expo, since Stark essentially served as young Peter's mentor of sorts, recruiting him to join Team Iron Man in this summer's Captain America: Civil War. What's curious is that »

Rumour: Nightwatch could appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming

28 September 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

You may want to have your pinch of salt at the ready for this one, but according to Bleeding Cool, the Marvel superhero Nightwatch could be set for an appearance in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The site reports that Sony employees have been out and about picking up as many Nightwatch comics as they can in order to research the character for a movie appearance, potentially in Spider-Man: Homecoming. They also speculate that Nightwatch could be Bokeem Woodbine’s character rather than Shocker, which seems a bit of a stretch given that a) we’ve seen Woodbine listed as Shocker on a leaked call sheet, and b) he looks nothing like Nightwatch in costume.

Nightwatch was created by Terry Kavanagh and Alex Saviuk and made his debut back in 1993 in Web of Spider-Man #99 (hence the reason the character falls under Sony’s remit in terms of movie rights). He »

TV Review: Netflix’s ‘Easy’

22 September 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From writer, director, and executive producer Joe Swanberg comes “Easy,” Netflix’s latest original series. “Easy” is an eight-episode collection of vignettes depicting sexual or romantic relationships in Chicago. The show is less about story than atmosphere; each episode feels like a living portrait, except instead of the characters as subjects, “Easy” is more invested in exposing the invisible relationship dynamic between the two.

Swanberg’s cinematic style has a place in modern film history; his 2005 debut “Kissing on the Mouth” was one of the first films to be called “mumblecore,” a sub-genre of indie filmmaking that emphasized natural conversation and low-budget production values, including, at the time, nonprofessional actors. But like everything that was hip in 2005, the genre has now become part of the establishment in its own way. The style of mumblecore inspired a whole crop of intimate television shows, and indeed, Swanberg’s fellow mumblecore directors Mark and Jay Duplass have become fixtures of »

‘Easy’ Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Profound New Netflix Series

22 September 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Always with a soft touch for the nuances of love in its many forms, Joe Swanberg’s filmmaking career is dotted with contemplative explorations of how individuals find happiness through each other. So it makes sense his first foray into serialized television — as a creator, writer and director of all episodes — combines the best of both worlds, films and love, all told within his favorite city. From a lovingly-captured Chicago, “Easy” functions as a series of short films, 25-30 minutes apiece, with each episode tracking a new couple’s singular journey.

A favorite among the independent film community, Swanberg has gathered a consummate group of actors with various degrees of experience to give life to each of his stories. Orlando Bloom and Malin Akerman, for instance, only appear in one episode, while Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Michael Chernus and a few others pop up a few times. Yet very little »

Easy Season 1 Review

22 September 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taken literally and/or sarcastically, the title of new Netflix series Easy is perfectly emblematic of both the show itself and the artistic approach of the man behind it all, Chicagoan indie icon Joe Swanberg. He’s directed nearly 20 features over the past ten years (Drinking Buddies, Digging For Fire, Happy Christmas), not to mention helming episodes of Love and Looking (impossibly, he’s led a prolific acting career as well). His brand of drama is decidedly subtle and naturalistic, following the everyday lives of everyday people who wrestle with age-old anxieties, desires, and fears as they dabble and fumble with the bright and shiny trappings of modern living.

Those familiar with Swanberg’s style will find a perfect TV representation of it in Easy, which follows very loosely connected Chicagoans as they bump and grind on each other in more ways than one. Sex, jealousy, infidelity, more sex, betrayal, »

Complete Unknown – Review

8 September 2016 5:34 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Rachel Weisz and Michael Shannon are dependable actors, but the script for the tedious identity drama Complete Unknown gives them flat characters stuck in underdeveloped situations. We’re introduced to Alice (Rachel Weisz), in an opening prologue montage that features her over time in several endeavors – a nurse, a magician’s assistant, and in bed telling a paramour that she’s been a teacher for many years. The rest of the story takes place in one night. Now a frog researcher fresh from a trip to Tasmania, Alice catches the eye of Clyde (Michael Chernus) in a Brooklyn office cafeteria. He immediately invites her a birthday party at the home of his co-worker Tom (Shannon) and his wife Ramina (Azita Ghanizada), a jewelry designer. There’s a dozen or so guests at the party, all entertained by the outlandish Alice, who brags of her accomplishments and confesses that years ago »

Tom Holland’s Spidey Features Heavily In New Behind The Scenes Footage From Captain America: Civil War

7 September 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a Blu-ray release right around the corner – September 13, to be precise – we’re beginning to see some fresh content emerge from Captain America: Civil War. It’s mostly concept art depicting early sketches of the show-stopping airport scene, coupled with the recent gag reel, but earlier this week YouTube user stayupthere cut together a sizzle reel of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from the range of special features included in the Civil War Blu-ray.

The result is a surprisingly entertaining peek behind the scenes of Joe and Anthony Russo’s threequel. Showcasing the ways in which Holland’s fresh-faced Avenger gets to grips with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, perhaps more than anything else the clip above is a neat reminder of the actor’s athleticism, which has been placed front and center all throughout production on Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Is Bringing Back This Iron Man Character

1 September 2016 4:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming simply refuses to stop growing. Now, a Marvel Cinematic Universe favorite is making his return to the big screen, as Jon Favreau is set to reprise the role he played for the first time in Iron Man back in 2008. Yes, Tony Stark's right-hand-man Happy Hogan is now set to appear in the movie.

Variety broke the news on Thursday, but the report didn't say anything about how large of a role Happy will play in the movie. Our best guess is, not a very big one, given the staggering size of the cast at this point. Marvel and Sony have also yet to comment on the news, but fans will likely welcome the appearance of Favreau in the movie, given that he hasn't appeared in an McU movie since Iron Man 3 in 2013, making it four years since his last appearance by the time Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters. »
