Tom Holland would like to see a Spider-Man and Ant-Man team-up

26 June 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man’s current partner and mentor will be Tony Stark/Iron Man as seen in this July’s hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, but with reports suggesting that the 2019 sequel will see Spidey teaming up with another hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland has shared his thoughts as to which character he’d like to see joining the web-slinger.

Speaking to ScreenRant at a press junket for Homecoming, Holland stated “Ant-Man would be my favorite. I want to have like a bug bros session. I think it’d be really cool.”

Clearly, Ant-Man would make sense considering that both superheroes are insect related and are known for wise-cracking remarks, but let us below in the comments who you’d like to see Spider-Man paired with for his next outing…

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Laura Harrier wants to see Liz Allan become Firestar

26 June 2017 3:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first Spider-Man film that feels like an ensemble movie. In every teaser and trailer seen so far, we get a sense that Peter Parker’s friends (and mentors) are a crucial part of his story in the film. These characters aren’t mere throwaways either: some of them go through some big evolutions in the comics.

Liz Allan for example, Parker’s main high-school crush, eventually becomes the superheroine Firestar. And Laura Harrier, the actress playing Liz, wants in according to Screenrant:

“I hope Liz get’s powers, because that’s what happens in the comics,” said Harrier. “She becomes like Firestar, and she can like light things on fire.”

With more Spider-Man movies on the way, and Marvel’s penchant for universe building, it wouldn’t be crazy to think that we may see her don a hero’s uniform in the future.

Watch Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie roast Spider-Man actor Tom Holland during an interview

26 June 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Holland has proven to be quite energetic during his various interviews leading up to the release of the Marvels first Spidey film Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland is a young actor, and his enthusiasm and aspirations are totally admirable, but some of his older co-workers seem a little tired of Holland’s on-set behavior… and his excessive use of hair gel, apparently. Revealed in a YouTube compilation created by user Shana Fierce, the actors give their opinion on “the little asshole” during an older interview…

While obviously a joke, it’s not hard to imagine the veteran Marvel actors having trouble dealing with someone as young as Tom Holland. But isn’t that absolutely perfect for the film? It’s why Holland’s Parker was so enjoyable to watch in Captain America: Civil War. It isn’t a stretch for Tom Holland to fit this role, and that is a beautiful »

Tom Holland wants Miles Morales in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

26 June 2017 1:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although they were recently fired from directing the Han Solo Star Wars story spinoff, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are still creating an animated Spider-Man feature utilizing the Miles Morales interpretation of the web-slinger.

However, that isn’t stopping audiences from wanting to see a live-action interpretation of the character as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Peter Parker himself Tom Holland seems to agree with the fans.

Speaking at a press junket for Spider-Man: Homecoming (courtesy of ScreenRant), Holland was questioned about the possible inclusion of Miles, stating that:

“That would be something that I would be very up for doing, it’s something that I would really really hope to happen. I think Miles Morales is a great character, I think it would be fantastic to have an actor of color playing a superhero on screen and I just think it’s going to be something very »

Kevin Feige explains why Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is the best way to start Phase Four of the McU

26 June 2017 12:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Late last year it was revealed that the first film in the McU following both parts of Avengers: Infinity War will be a sequel to this July’s hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has now explained why Spider-Man is the perfect character to kick off Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking to io9, Feige explained: “So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the McU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker? So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about. It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to »

Marisa Tomei is “all for” a solo Aunt May film

26 June 2017 12:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back before Spider-Man was even announced as heading to the McU with a brand new actor portraying the web-slinger (Tom Holland taking over for Andrew Garfield), Sony was at a crossroads of what to do with the property considering that The Amazing Spider-Man movies were both critical and commercial flops. One of their reported proposed ideas was an Aunt May solo feature based upon a comic book exploring her days as a spy.

Naturally, that idea was shelved with the superhero’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War and the announcement of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but with the casting of Marisa Tomei as a ridiculously attractive interpretation of Aunt May (she’s already flirting with Tony Stark), Sony is in a position where they theoretically could market such a film if they were interested in making it.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Tomei was asked about those rumors and replied “What? You »

Kevin Feige on Spider-Man, Sony’s spinoffs and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

25 June 2017 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two weeks to go before Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is out on the promotional campaign for the Marvel and Sony-produced reboot, during which he’s been talking about the future of the wall-crawler within the McU and trying to clear up the status of Sony’s Spider-Spinoffs.

“Right now, Spidey is in the McU and it’s just Spidey. Civil War, Homecoming, we’ve already shot a lot of Tom Holland’s scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we’re just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 – we won’t call it that, whatever it is – which is exciting because it’ll be the first McU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019,” Feige tells Joblo. “It’ll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. »

First Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions hit the web, suggest another winner for Marvel Studios

24 June 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel fans can breathe a sigh of relief! The first string of reactions from press members who have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming at an early screening have hit the web (no pun intended), and they claim that the summer blockbuster is a rip-roaring, crowd-pleasing good time.

Praise, in particular, is being directed towards the film’s John Hughes-inspired tone, diverse cast and Tom Holland, who many have described as the best on-screen Spider-Man yet. Even despite Marvel Studios’ spotty track record with compelling antagonists, Michael Keaton’s Vulture has been described as one of the stronger Marvel Cinematic Universe villains. Overall, if the previous three Spider-Man solo films (Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man) were examples of Spidey at his worst, Homecoming sounds like a return to form for the web-slinger. See the hugely positive reactions for yourself down below…

Spoilers: Spider-Man: Homecoming cast list confirms Jennifer Connelly, mystery roles and surprise villains

23 June 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony has released the electronic press kit for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which includes a cast list that reveals several new cast additions and surprise villains. Spoilers follow…

First up is the news that Jennifer Connelly is returning to the Marvel universe following her role in Ang Lee’s Hulk, and is set to play Karen/Suit Lady (the voice of the A.I. in Spider-Man’s suit, perhaps?). We also get confirmation that Gwyneth Paltrow is returning as Pepper Potts, as well as Angourie Rice’s role as Betty Brant. Zendaya’s character Michelle doesn’t have a surname listed, so that recent rumour about her true identity remains unconfirmed.

Also confirmed is the fact that we’ll be seeing two versions of Shocker in Herman Schultz (Bokeem Woodbine) and Jackson Brice (Logan Marshall-Green), while Michael Mando is listed as Mac Gargan, a.k.a. Scorpion.

Is Donald Glover Playing the Prowler in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

23 June 2017 1:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a Reddit user claimed that Donald Glover is playing a criminal character called Alex, but it seems that may not be accurate. Earlier today, a report surfaced that Jennifer Connelly has been added to the IMDb page for Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that page also revealed that Donald Glover's character is actually Aaron Davis, who fans of the Marvel Comics will also know as The Prowler. While we likely won't know for sure until Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, these new details could set up some interesting developments in future Spider-Man movies.

Shortly after it was discovered that Jennifer Connelly was listed as "Karen/Suit Lady" on IMDb, she was removed from the page entirely, while the character listing of Aaron Davis was removed after Donald Glover's name. This could certainly hint that the listings were valid, with Marvel possibly asking IMDb to remove them, but it's also possible that they could be completely fabricated, since anyone can edit a film's IMDb page. Then again, it has been mentioned before that Donald Glover is playing Aaron Davis.

Just a few days before the original report on Donald Glover, Disney Xd aired a Fan's Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming, a 22-minute special chocked full of new footage, where Donald Glover's character was referred to as Aaron Davis. It's also worth noting that the Spider-Man: Homecoming novelization only covers the first act of the movie, so it's possible that Aaron Graves was using Alex as a fake name, perhaps to hide his identity from the characters he's buying the weapons from, Herman Schultz (Bokeem Woodbine) and Jackson "Montana" Brice (Logan Marshall-Green).

In the Marvel Comics, Aaron Davis was also the uncle of Miles Morales, the character Donald Glover voices on the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, and the character that he also lobbied to play for some time in a live-action movie. Aaron Davis was a career criminal, who used to be partners with his brother Jefferson Davis, before Jefferson reformed his life and had a family, including his son Miles Morales. After stealing some technology from Oscorp, a spider that was genetically enhanced with the Oz formula crawled into Miles bag and eventually found and bit Morales, giving him the Spider-Man powers. In the comics, Aaron Davis was also associated with The Tinkerer, a character played by Michael Chernus, so perhaps this movie will set up an alliance between those characters for future Spider-Man movies.

Sony has confirmed that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is already in the works, with the studio setting a July 5, 2019 release date. It was recently announced that this sequel will not feature Iron Man or the Vulture, although no other specific plot details were given. If Donald Glover is in fact playing Aaron Davis, then it's possible that this movie may also introduce his nephew Miles Morales, but that may not happen since Sony is also putting out a Spider-Man animated movie, with Shameik Moore voicing Miles Morales, with that movie following his origins. Regardless, we'll find out what happens when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters nationwide on July 7. »

Aunt May And Peter Share A Quiet Family Moment In New Spider-Man: Homecoming Promo

23 June 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Marvel’s marketing machine begins to fire on all cylinders in anticipation of July 7th, the new Spider-Man: Homecoming promo finds Aunt May sharing a quiet family moment with Peter.

Sitting over dinner while a news report plays in the background – a news report in which Spidey’s heroics are placed front and center – today’s all-too-brief clip is another reminder that Jon Watts’ franchise reset will place a particular focus on Peter Parker and his struggles to balance a double life of cutting class and tackling crime.

Armed with a bleeding-edge suit gifted to him by Stark Industries, Holland’s Web-Head is able to approach criminals with that signature sense of confidence. From the hyper-responsive eye-slits to sophisticated web shooters, web-wings to that cute little detachable Spider-Drone, the Spidey suit featured in Spider-Man: Homecoming is arguably the most advanced one yet, and it’ll no doubt stand Parker in good stead as he takes the fight to The Vulture (Michael Keaton) and his unruly associates. The Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and The Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) will be another two goons for Spidey to apprehend, but given how Keaton’s unhinged Adrian Toomes has uncovered alien tech from the aftermath of the Battle for New York, doing so won’t be easy.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is due to make a beeline for theatres on July 7th and when it does, it’ll signal the beginning of a brand new trilogy of Spidey solo movies. That means that, once Avengers: Infinity War drops on May 4th, 2018, Tom Holland’s Web-Head will return to Queens for Homecoming 2, and will do so without Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark by his side. Who will replace Iron Man for the sequel? Who knows, but let the speculation commence. »

Zendaya wasn’t aware she was auditioning for Spider-Man: Homecoming

22 June 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actress Zendaya apparently wasn’t aware at the time that she was auditioning for a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Movie gigs don’t come much bigger than superhero films these days, and superheroes don’t come much bigger than Spider-Man, especially now that the character is being incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this latest reboot of the tale.

So a young actress would probably be pretty excited about getting the opportunity to land one of the film’s key roles. Unfortunately for Zendaya, she wasn’t aware what her audition was actually for.

Zendaya told the story to Jimmy Fallon in a recent interview (via comicbook.com), describing her surprise.

“I knew I was auditioning for ‘Girl In Movie’, it was great getting into character [laughs],” Zendaya said. “In fact, I didn’t actually even know what kind of character [it was], because my character is very interesting. She is kind of a loner; she is super-intellectual, very dug-dry humor with one-liners, pops in and pops out. I didn’t even know what character I was going to play until I got there and sign the Non-Disclosure and then read the script.”

The actress, who will be playing a character named Michelle in the movie, also talked about how the production for Homecoming didn’t feel like a superhero film to her.

“So everything that I shot, when we were shooting just felt like I was shooting this awkward teen coming-of-age comedy kind of thing and then you realize, when the trailers were starting to come out, that ‘Wow, this is a Spider-Man movie! This is action, it’s going down!’” Zendaya said.

Fans will be able to see Zendaya in Spiderman: Homecoming, apparently not involved in the film’s action, early next month.

The hero we deserve: Kevin Feige explains how he brought Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

22 June 2017 1:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When it was revealed that Spider-Man would finally be returning home to the McU, it was met with applause, and a healthy dose of disbelief. How did Marvel do it? This was something that the Marvel fan-base had seemingly accepted as an impossibility. So what happened? Well, Kevin Feige happened. In a recent interview with THR, the president of Marvel Studios explained what he did to sway Sony to share the wisecracking web-slinger:

“It really came down to me telling Amy Pascal in her office that I think the best thing for this character is: Sony has the rights, that’s not changing. Have Sony pay for the movie, distribute the movie, market the movie. Just let us make the movie and incorporate him into our universe.”

A lot of this reads like an episode of AMC’s Mad Men. It looks like the biggest deal in comic book movie history was a result of two important people sitting in an office, and making a deal. No word on whether they were drinking gin on the rocks, and making grand postures during this exchange, but one thing is for certain: Kevin Feige is the hero we deserve, and luckily the one we have right now. Now go get Wolverine for us Kevin!

The result of this deal, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is releasing this summer.

Spidey will team up with another McU hero in Spider-Man 2 – but it won’t be Iron Man

21 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the news that Carnage will be the villain in Venom and Sony’s plans for an expanded SpiderVerse with Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter spin-offs, The Hollywood Reporter also dropped a little nugget of information for Spider-Man 2.

The site’s report says that Spider-Man 2 will see Tom Holland’s Spidey team-up with another McU hero, but it won’t be Ol’ Shell Head.

“Sony will get a to-be-determined Marvel character for Spider-Man 2 like it received for Homecoming with the box-office monster Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr,” the report states. “But sources say it won’t be Iron Man next time around.”

Carnage will be the villain in Venom movie; Sony planning Kraven and Mysterio spin-offs before Sinister Six

21 June 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony are continuing their SpiderVerse plans, which will kick off fully next year with Ruben Fleischer’s Venom starring Tom Hardy, and development is in place for Silver & Black. If rumours are to be believed, it won’t just be Black Cat and Silver Sable in the movie as it will also feature other Spider-Man characters like Jessica Drew.

In a new article from The Hollywood Reporter, it’s noted that Venom will feature Carnage as the main villain and – contrary to other reports – could feature Tom Holland as Spider-Man.

The report also says Sony are planning on expanding their SpiderVerse further by having spin-off movies for classic villains Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter before potentially pulling them together for The Sinister Six.

This was always Sony’s plan when they launched the Amazing Spider-Man Cinematic Universe, with Daredevil showrunner Drew Goddard writing and directing, only this time they plan to introduce them individually rather than launching straight into the ensemble outing.

Sony will also be making Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 with Marvel Studios, with Spidey appearing in other McU films like Avengers: Infinity War.
