Freddie Highmore Discusses Spider-Man Speculation

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Speculation continues to swirl around the role of Spider-Man, now that the character is confirmed as being scheduled to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No actor has yet been cast in the role, but there are certainly already a few fan favorites emerging. One of which is Freddie Highmore.

While promoting season three of Bates Motel, the actor spoke to IGN about fans touting his name as the next potential web-slinger.

“Obviously, I would love to be considered. That would be fantastic. I guess we’ll just have to see how things go.

“You always feel like you can identify with him. He’s that kind of guy at school who wasn’t perhaps in the really cool group, but who was extremely intelligent and managed to find confidence in being Spider-Man – in this other side to his life.”

Addressing the possibility of participating in such a weighty film franchise, »

4 March 2015 2:34 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They're going to be here earlier than expected. The evil spirits in the Bowen home apparently cannot wait to be unleashed on a new generation of moviegoers, as 20th Century Fox has changed the release date of their Poltergeist remake from July 24th to May 22nd.

"Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever."

The new release date is according to Box Office Mojo. Directed by Gil Kenan off a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire, and produced by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and Roy Lee, the Poltergeist remake stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, Jane Adams, Saxon Sharbino, Kennedi Clements, and Kyle Catlett. »

The Spectacular Spider-Man: 10 Reasons It’s Already Doomed

4 March 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Ever since it was announced Spider-Man was going to become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s be rampant speculation normally only reserved for dubious Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art.

Will they canonise the Sam Raimi films, with Tobey Maguire reprising the role of Peter Parker? Is the Spider-Man going forward actually Miles Morales? Will Peter have a race change in a bid to diversify the McU? Can you expect a reference in the oh-so-close Avengers: Age Of Ultron? How exactly has a hero everyone was sick of only a couple of months ago become the biggest talking point on the internet?

Now those rumours are starting to coalesce into something regarding actual facts. The current suggestion is that, following the character’s debut in Captain America: Civil War, Sony’s 2017 stand-alone movie will see Peter Parker go back to high school, but »

Sony Signs Marvel Team; Are the Russo Bros. Doing 'Spider-Man'?

3 March 2015 1:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has signed Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo to a three-year first-look deal that begins this April. The brothers and filmmakers will develop new projects for Sony and their subsidiaries Columbia Pictures and Tri-Star Pictures. Here's what Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad had to say in a statement regarding the deal

"Joe and Anthony Russo are terrifically exciting filmmakers with a sensibility that matches the tastes of audiences worldwide."

The news comes less than a month after Sony and Marvel finalized a deal to bring Sony Pictures' Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Leaked emails from the Sony hack last year revealed that the Russos were coming aboard to produce Sony's new Spider-Man movie, but that was never confirmed. The Spider-Man reboots hits theaters in July 2017, after the new Spidey debuts in an unconfirmed Marvel movie, which many believe to be the Russos' Captain America: Civil War. »

Drew Goddard Circling The Spider-Man Reboot

2 March 2015 11:51 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A new Spider-Man filmmaking team is now required with a changing of the guard that has seen Marvel taking an active interest in the character's future development and Sony returning to the drawing board, with an approach that hopefully won't involve yet another origin story. Drew Goddard, who was already involved in developing the Spider-universe for the studio, is now talking to his bosses about handling the new film, which is due in 2017.In a development initially broken by the Latino Review (which includes the potentially intriguing element – as yet completely unconfirmed – that Spidey’s first new film might see him going up against Iron Man as an audition to join the Avengers), Goddard will be meeting with Sony brass and Marvel head Kevin Feige to discuss writing and directing the new movie.Goddard, of course, has been busy developing the villain team-up outing Sinister Six. It seems the gathering »

Spider-Man: Drew Goddard may write and direct new movie

2 March 2015 10:23 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Cabin In The Woods' Drew Goddard may yet be tackling Spider-Man on the big screen...

Well, this would make sense. For some time, Drew Goddard had been developing the seemingly-aborted Sinister Six movie spin-off for Sony, that would launch its Spider-Man movie universe properly. Goddard even walked away from the soon-to-premiere Daredevil TV show for Netflix to do it.

Now, though, he's been linked with writing and directing the brand new Spider-Man film, that's planned for the summer of 2017. This will be the first standalone Spider-Man film following the character's introduction to the Marvel cinematic universe (which is expected to be in next year's Captain America: Civil War), and it'll also feature a new face as the webslinger.

Drew Goddard's involvement isn't a done deal yet. The Cabin In The Woods director has a meeting regarding taking the film on, and he's believed to be the front runner. »

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' producers tease 'Birth of a Superhero' return

2 March 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been nearly three months since the last new episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The fall finale, titled "What They Become," was fittingly a build-up to a grand revelation about Skye's true identity. Or maybe we should say Daisy Johnson's identity, because The Inhumans are coming to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which is apparently mighty exciting if you're a Marvel fan. But what if you're not necessarily a devotee of the Marvel comics and you're maybe one of those people who tuned out on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." at some point during its first 32 episodes? Last week, on the secretive "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." set, the show's producers chatted with a group of reporters about what's in store for the second half of the season.    Sitting in the shadow of The Bus, with Lola sitting shiny and red just 10 feet away, »

Spider-Man: 5 Big Things To Expect From Marvel's Reboot

2 March 2015 4:01 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Now that Marvel and Sony are working together on Spider-Man, we.re slowly learning more about what to expect from the next phase of his cinematic life. It was reported earlier today that Drew Goddard may write and direct the next Spider-Man solo film. Goddard was originally set to helm the Sinister Six spinoff film that was supposed to be released in late 2016, but now that the Amazing Spider-Man series is deader than Gwen Stacy (too soon?), both studios evidently think he would be a good fit for the new iteration of the Wall-Crawler. If this deal is finalized/made legit, he will follow in the footsteps of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, as well as be able to return to the McU after leaving the Daredevil series. With a new director also comes a new creative direction, and with this announcement also came hints of what we might see »

Drew Goddard to Helm Sony/Marvel's New Spider-Man Movie

2 March 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Sony and Marvel's announcement about Spider-Man joining the McU overjoyed fans, but as the hunt for the new actor continues, it looks like we now know who will be writing/directing the new film, plus some possible details on how it will play out.  Come inside to check out the latest Spider-Man report!

With Spider-Man at long last able to join up with the ranks of other Marvel properties, speculation has been running rampant on how he'll fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and who is likely to take up the mantle this time around.  While, we're no closer to know who will be the next actor in line for the role (despite some earlier rumors today), we do know who Sony/Marvel is trusting to bring the new film to the big screen in 2017: Drew Goddard

If the name sounds familiar in terms of the Spider-Man world, Goddard »

Goddard To Helm "Spider-Man" Reboot?

2 March 2015 10:27 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A new report over at Latino Review suggests that "Cabin in the Woods" scribe Drew Goddard, who was originally slated to write and direct the "Spider-Man" spin-off "Sinister Six," will now instead direct the upcoming Sony/Marvel Studios-sanctioned reboot of the "Spider-Man" franchise.

With Marvel now in on the film and former producer Avi Arad essentially out (he'll retain a name credit), their sources claim the plan is to produce a new trilogy of films which could go by the moniker "Spectacular Spider-Man".

The previous Spider-Man verse films in the works will all be phased out, whilst Goddard's work on "Sinister Six" so far could well be reincorporated into the reboot as the plan is to apparently do a story involving Spidey versus the Sinister Six.

A major part of the first film is said to involve Spider-Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the 'audition' to join the Avengers, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Wolverine

2 March 2015 4:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Despite not being one of the classic Marvel characters created by the likes of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, Wolverine is still considered one of their best superheroes and is easily as big a fan-favourite as Spider-Man and The Avengers.

It’s not hard to see why that is either. The gruff X-Men character is like a comic book version of Clint Eastwood, and his adventures – which are usually much more violent than those of Captain America and Daredevil for example – have been keeping Marvel fans hooked for decades now. Whether it’s in his classic blue and yellow costume, a vest and jeans, or any other variation worn since his first appearance in 1974, Wolverine is a Marvel mainstay.

However, with a history which goes back as far as the 19th Century, there’s a lot than even the most devoted fan may »

Rumour: Spider-Man could feature in Avengers: Age of Ultron

26 February 2015 4:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, that didn’t take long.

As soon as it was announced that Spider-Man had joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to a cross-pollination deal between Sony and Marvel, speculation was abound that there would be rumours of an appearance of the wall crawler in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

As we said, it didn’t take long.

According to speculation from various websites, the poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was released on Tuesday) reveals that Danny Elfman has provided “extra music” for the film. Now the speculation goes that Danny Elfman provided music for Ang Lee’s Hulk back in 2003, but more famously wrote the score for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 for Sony. Could this mean he has been hired to bring back his Spider-Man score for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Check out the poster below:

Of course, this is all rumour and speculation. »

How much control do Marvel have over Spider-Man?

26 February 2015 3:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the deal was announced that Marvel and Sony had come to a terms for Spider-Man to appear in their movies and kick off another reboot to the series in 2017, it was thought that Sony would have full creative control over the character and his direction.

With Amy Pascal stepping down from her seat of control, comic book movie fans were concerned when Tom Rothman took her place. Rothman is notorious for hating comic book movies when he working at 20th Century Fox and was the biggest blockade against a Deadpool movie being made, as well as banning Sentinals from appearing in any X-Men movies. He also micro-managed X-Men Origins: Wolverine to the point where he had the sets re-painted without telling director Gavin Hood. Many believe that Rothman is the reason why Marvel and Fox have an unhealthy relationship.

'Spider-Man': Marvel May Have More Control Than Sony

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over Marvel and Sony's announcement earlier this month that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the beloved web slinger reportedly set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, although that hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet. Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that Tom Rothman will step in for Amy Pascal, who left her job as Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman and Motion Picture Group president just weeks ago. Some have worried that this may hinder the new Spider-Man reboot, since Tom Rothman oversaw superhero flops such as Daredevil and Elektra during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. However, a new report from Latino-Review reveals that Marvel may have more control over Spidey than originally thought.

The site backs up previous reports that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach are "producers in name only" with the new Spider-Man movie, »

The Badass Way Marvel May Choose To Introduce Spider-Man

25 February 2015 2:03 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Marvel.s mega-movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron released a star-studded, robotic whirlwind of a new poster yesterday, it was noticed that the updated credits happened to be crammed full of newsworthy tidbits. In addition to confirming the presence of Anthony Mackie.s Falcon and others, it also lists composer, Danny Elfman as a musical contributor. While Elfman is a cinematic musical icon, his inclusion is especially noteworthy since he also happened to work on the music for Sam Raimi.s Spider-Man trilogy. Could this mean that the impending arrival of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be set to some familiar tunes? ComicBook.com picked up on Danny Elfman.s name being included in the credit block of the new poster (noted for providing "Additional Music"), but the site also goes down a speculative, but nevertheless intriguing slippery slope of inductive reasoning, suggesting that Elfman.s involvement could »

New Details On Just How Much Control Marvel Studios Has Over Spider-man

25 February 2015 1:07 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday's news about Tom Rothman (someone whose track record with superhero properties is not good thanks to his tenure at Fox) taking over from Amy Pascal worried a lot of Spider-Man fans. To put it bluntly, pretty much everyone was wondering, "Is he going to f**k up the deal with Marvel?!" Based on a report over at Latino-Review, probably not! They reiterate that Avi Arad and Matt Tolomach are producers in name only, adding: "We have information from a source suggesting there is no financial involvement whatsoever and no direct creative control over Spidey coming from the old guard. Amy Pascal still has a say in the Mom-and-Pop arrangement she has with Feige, but Disney didn’t want to unite Pearlmutter, Arad and Feige in earnest. This is the solution. What does that mean? It means Marvel might have a bit more control than we thought. It means the »
