Stan Lee Media Inc., the company founded by Stan Lee in 1998 and then abandoned by him three years later, has lost its second big decision in as many days and probably its best hope of ever being adjudicated the rightful owner of "Spider-Man" rights. This time, the decision comes from a Pennsylvania judge who was tasked with figuring out what to do about Slmi's somewhat innovative attempt to intervene itself in Disney's lawsuit against a theatrical producer. In September 2013, Disney lodged a complaint against American Music Theatre, which put on Broadway: Now & Forever, which featured references

Out of the four studios concerned with comic book movie adaptations, it’s safe to say that Sony is not leading the charge. The studio’s rebooted Spider-Man franchise was ushered in too soon after Sam Raimi’s trilogy wrapped up, and it has suffered dire consequences as a result. If the material had worked and audiences’ interests were suitably piqued, Sony’s eagerness to reboot the webhead would have made no difference. But then The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit – and suffered an onslaught of critical derision, not to mention a dissatisfying box office return. Now, it seems Sony is attempting to beat a dead horse by reviving Spider-Man via an entirely new idea, under the title Glass Ceiling.
According to Badass Digest (via Collider), Sony is rumored to be developing a female Spider-Man feature that will include a team of female Spider-Men. The idea first landed back in August, »

“I hope fans always have their rumors and their hopes.” - Kevin Feige, Ocotber 28th, 2014
Welcome To Issue 69!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: Marvel announced all their Phase 3 films and I Can't Even.
“We wanted to do this at Comic Con this year, but things were not set.” is what Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said yesterday, kicking off the Q&A at the El Capitan theater in California after the studio released it’s complete Phase 3 lineup. What that says to me is that Marvel was willing to put up with the bullcrap people like myself were gearing to throw on them. Marvel had two of the biggest movies of the year, but somehow it still seemed they were in a foot race with Warner Bros and DC whose »
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got the first official look at the cast of the upcoming reboot Terminator: Genisys, with Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Jason Clarke (John Connor) and Matt Smith (a “close ally” of John Connor) featuring on two covers to the latest issue of the magazine. Take a look…
According to EW, the reboot is “set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah, from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected… »

In the hours leading up to the incredible Marvel event on Tuesday, Twitter was abuzz with possibilities. Note: the same thing happens annually at Comic-Con as fans wait for the Marvel panel in Hall H. Fans trying to guess what Marvel President Kevin Feige had up his sleeve speculated about Doctor Strange casting, Avengers: Age of Ultron footage, and the confirmations of standalone solo films (many of which were announced in the eventual panel). One guess that many had, though, didn.t come to fruition. and I have a few guesses as to why. Spider-Man was not announced as part of the ever-expanding Phase Three in the Marvel Cinemaric Universe, despite rumors that Sony and Marvel were striking a deal behind the scenes to allow Web head to play in the McU sandbox. possibly for the Civil War storyline. Those who read the Civil War plot in the Marvel comics »
We recently heard that Robert Downey Jr will reprise his Tony Stark/Iron Man role in the upcoming third "Captain America" film, called "Captain America: Civil War." Marvel has now confirmed the story, adding lots more details. The "Civil War" storyline pits Stark against Captain America as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with super-human abilities to register themselves with the Us government and agree to serve as part of a new police force. Stark supports the program, but Captain America does not, believing that it threatens the civil liberties of Us citizens. Rogers and others opposing the act are forced to go on the run. The comic book that the film is based on includes Spider-Man and other masked superheroes, which is why the Us government wants to know who's behind the mask. According to Marvel head Kevin Feige, "secret identities aren't as important in [this] version of the story. »
Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the cinematic Marvel universe both contain six films, but in a new event, the studio announced that Phase 3 will consist of a whopping nine films, including "The Avengers 3," which will be split into two movies. "Ant-Man" is still set to hit theaters on July 17th, 2015, but will no longer be the first film of Phase 3. It will now be the last film of Phase 2, while "Captain America: Civil War" will be the first film of Phase 3. During the announcement, Marvel head Kevin Feige commented on why "Iron Man 4" is not one of the nine movies and whether we'll ever see a fourth installment. "If there are more years after 2019, there will be more possibilities, I expect," he hinted. He commented on the rumor that Sony Pictures will like to include Spider-Man in a future Marvel film. "Anything that wasn't specifically and obviously revealed today is either not true at all, »

Yesterday Marvel Studios announced its full Phase Three line-up, confirming earlier reports that Robert Downey Jr. is set to join Chris Evans in Captain America 3, which is now officially going by the title of Captain America: Civil War.
Now we’ve known for a few weeks that the studio intends to adapt the Civil War comic book story arc, and during that time many fans have questioned how Marvel can do so when the majority of their characters do not have secret identities – not to mention the fact that important characters such as Spider-Man are at different studios. Well, here’s Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to explain:
“I don’t want to give too much away, but needless to say, the generalities of the [Superhero Registration] act are the same. Something happens. Perhaps, it’s culmative for things that have happened from all of the movies leading up to this point. »

Spider-Man wasn't in Marvel's big Phase Three announcement. But does that mean he's not appearing in Marvel movies?
Just doing a bit of mopping up work following Marvel's big announcement of its raft of upcoming movies last night. You can read all about that here.
One name that didn't crop up in the presentation given by Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige was that of Spider-Man. It had been rumoured that Sony was in negotiations with Marvel regarding crossing the character of Spider-Man over into the likes of The Avengers. Furthermore, with Marvel bringing the Civil War storyline from the comic books to the screen, there's a role for Spider-Man in that, if the assorted corporate shenanigans could be sorted.
Following a massive announcement by Warner Bros. regarding their slate of DC superhero films out through the end of the decade, Marvel, released their own lineup in a press event today. And now they’ve just released the first TV spot for Agent Carter, a new series inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter. The show stars Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, James D’Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokai, and Shea Whigham. Agent Carter debuts on ABC in January of 2015. Watch the video below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Agent Carter:
ABC presents its second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel in “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” inspired by the feature films Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” and Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with »
It’s been one hell of a day for Marvel fans, who were treated to an exciting announcement outlining all of Marvel’s Phase Three films. This includes solo pics for Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and The Inhumans to go along with Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok and a two-part Avengers: Infinity War. However, one iconic and beloved Marvel character was left out of the party completely: Spider-Man.
Of course, I know why Spider-Man wasn’t even mentioned, as the character is currently owned by Sony Pictures. But following the recent rumors that the web slinger would be joining a future Avengers film, I was kind of hoping that universes would collide for this one.

1. Nothing actually happened today. The Internet goes crazy for announcements, and today might very well go down in history as the single most announcement-y announcement in the history of superhero movies or movies or pop culture or human history. But an announcement is not a movie. Anticipation is another word for enjoying something that doesn't exist yet. Currently, here on the Internet, there are bizarre people hurling insult grenades at critics who have committed the sin of liking but not loving Interstellar—a movie that none of the bizarre people hurling insult grenades have actually seen. Maybe they will never actually see Interstellar. »

This article contains mild spoilers for the Civil War comics, but nothing major. As ever, the final act of Captain America: The Winter Soldier is discussed here too.
Last night Marvel Studios presented us with a veritable feast of information to gorge ourselves on – a two-part Avengers movie, date confirmations for Thor and the Guardians Of The Galaxy’s next outings and the announcement of Marvel’s debut standalone female superhero and its first bill-topping black character, too.
In all that excitement, the confirmation that Captain America: Civil War will hit screens on May 6th 2016 may not seem too spectacular. After all, we had already heard that some form of Civil War was in store for the Avengers a few weeks ago.
However, there is actually lot of »
