It was heavily rumoured prior to the announcement of Tom Holland as the new Peter Parker that Miles Morales would feature as Spider-Man in the new McU-branded reboot of the character (some even claimed they were 95% sure he would). Many fans were in fact quite upset that Morales was pushed aside in favour of “another white Spider-Man”. But does Holland’s casting mean we’ll never see Morales put on the Spidey suit? Well, director Jon Watts is certainly teasing the idea.
“I can’t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much,” he told Yahoo! News about Miles Morales featuring in his Spider-Man movie. “We’re still writing the story… we haven’t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.”
That’s not a definite ‘no’, but it could also just be Watts teasing us with the possibility. Perhaps he could just »

We know by now that Tom Holland will star as Peter Parker in the new Spider-Man film, but could his sometime replacement Miles Morales also be putting in an appearance?
Well, he didn't outright deny it, at any rate, which is pretty much a 'yes', right?
"I can't talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much," he told Yahoo! Movies when asked about Morales.
"We're still writing the story... we haven't finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows?"
Who is Miles Morales? The fascinating rise of the mixed race Spider-Man
It’s been a whirlwind year for fans of teenagers bit by radioactive spiders. Prospective movies as diverse and ridiculous as Sinister Six and Aunt May have been canned (along with the unappetising The Amazing Spider-Man 3), the complex legal jargon of superhero contracts has been reworked and the first movie starring the new Spidey has already been cast, shot and is now well into the edit. Tom Holland may have been “that kid from The Impossible” at the start of 2015, but he’s going to leave it as the star of some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.
Such quick development, however, has led to some confusion of what exactly we know. Some people still seem »

Jon Watts (Cop Car) was a surprising choice to take the helm of Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot, but for anyone concerned about whether or not he’s the right man for the job, the director’s recent comments about the comic books he’s been reading for inspiration are sure to put plenty of minds at ease.
“Oh, I love that. Ultimate is great. I love Ultimate. We have the freedom to pull from anything, but I really like what [Brian Michael] Bendis did. A lot. That felt like… that was Peter Parker back in high school. And, spending as much time with his high school problems as it did with his superhero problems, which I »

When it was announced in February that Spider-Man is finally entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many wondered if Marvel would shake things up a bit and use Miles Morales as the new Spidey, instead of Peter Parker. For months, speculation swirled regarding the casting, until late June, when it was confirmed that Tom Holland is the new Peter Parker, effectively ending the Miles Morales debate. As it turns out, though, it seems we may be seeing young Miles after all, after director Jon Watts wouldn't confirm nor deny the character's involvement, in an interview with Yahoo! Movies! UK.
"I can't talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much. We're still writing the story... we haven't finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows."

The great Mark Twain is reputed to have said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme a lot.” That’s a nice way of putting it… another way is to suggest that there’s nothing new under the sun: everything’s a rehash of a Xerox of a reboot of a copy, especially in the cheerfully plagiaristic world of professional wrestling.
Then there’s the times that life simply hiccupped and ran the same piece of bad luck all over again, because life’s like that sometimes. Or there are the weird coincidences that plague us all – like the fact that in the entire state of Ohio in 1895 there were only two motor cars, yet they still managed to hit each other.
Plagiarism, bad luck voodoo, bizarre coincidences – these are the times that, in the screwed up world of pro wrestling, »

Having starred as the love interest in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, Kirsten Dunst is certainly no stranger to tentpole films. Next week though she tackles something quite different for her - cable television.
Talking about her major role in the upcoming second season of FX's "Fargo," the actress spoke with The Guardian this week where she reveals that she's kind of over Hollywood filmmaking:
"People don't go to the cinema unless it's an event any more. So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television... Doing a television show is much, much harder work than film, because you're doing 10 pages a day. You don't get that many takes. And my character does not stop talking."
Why the audience shift? She suggests the rash of homogenized films are due to too much money and too much product:
"There are just too many movies being made, »

Kirsten Dunst is no stranger to big-budget studio movies, having starred in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy, among countless other films — but her next major role is on the small screen, where she’ll star in season two of FX’s “Fargo.”
In a recent interview with the UK’s Guardian newspaper, Dunst admits that she’s become a little disillusioned with the film industry. “People don’t go to the cinema unless it’s an event any more,” she says. “So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television.”
Her theory for that shift is that “there are just too many movies being made, I think. So many of them get lost. Too many cooks in the kitchen – the studio’s editing it, the producers are editing it, the director’s editing, too. But everyone has their hand in it, »

Phase Three is ready to kick off next year with Captain America: Civil War and will be followed by a string of titles including Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spider-Man, The Inhumans and, of course, Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. With all that in place, you’d think the plot threads had all been worked out, but how much of Phase Three has actually been plotted out?
“In broad strokes,” Kevin Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “Sometimes in super-specific things. But, for the most part, in broad strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that if, through the development of four or five movies before we get to the culmination, as you say, we still have room to sway and to move and to go and to surprise ourselves »

One of the more endearing elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the Marvel One Shots, which have given characters like Agent Coulson, Agent Carter and even Trevor Slattery (which introduces the idea that The Mandarin is a real character in the McU) a little bit more screen time. But we’ve not seen one for a while – will we ever see them again?
“We talk about them a lot!” Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “We have characters like that that Jeremy [Latcham, Marvel Studios producer] is always talking about. ‘When are we gonna do Howard? When are we gonna do Cosmo?’ We are relatively small team, now moving into three movies a year. It’s just about finding the time and place to do that. But there’s a backlog of ideas.”

It’s not hard to see why there’s so much love for Marvel’s various TV series. As well as being massively entertaining shows in their own right, they bring the hugely-popular McU to the small screen, habitually referencing the films and even featuring some surprise appearances (I’m looking at you, Nick Fury!)
Yet despite all their success, Marvel’s TV shows must have felt left out of the McU from time to time, with their big-name movie siblings failing to ever truly acknowledge them. Well not anymore, if Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige’s comments are anything to go by:
“I think that’s inevitable at some point as we’re plotting the movies going forward and they’re doing the shows,” he explained when asked during the Avengers: Age of Ultron event in La. Apparently it’s simply an issue of scheduling:
“It’s easier for them. »

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made an appearance at a Q&A earlier this week to mark the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron on DVD and Blu-ray, and he of course talked all things Phase 3. Kicking off with Captain Marvel, he revealed that while they’re actively working on developing her movie, we shouldn’t expect a casting

While promoting the DVD release of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Marvel head Kevin Feige was asked about handling a superhero that the Marvel suddenly gets rights back to, like Spider-Man. "The short answer is: the most important thing is the stand-alone movie, relaunching Spider-Man with a stand-alone movie with a new storyline that fits into this universe – that's job number one for us," he explained. "And as is the case, the connectivity is great but it doesn't drive the train." Feige continued: "That being said, if I understand what you're asking, this has been a dream of ours for a long time, and we always had contingency plans. Are we going to be able to make another movie with this actor? If we are then we'll do this, if not, we're going to do this. If we get the rights to a certain character that'd be great, then we'd do this, »
Back in June, a rumor surfaced that Sony Pictures and Marvel may be developing a new movie based on the Spider-Gwen comics, after Marvel's Ike Perlmutter recently green-lit a new solo comic series for the character. We never heard anything concrete about this Spider-Gwen spinoff, but earlier this week, a new fan-made trailer started making the rounds, stoking interest in the character getting her own solo adventure. During a Q&A to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, producers Kevin Feige and Jeremy Latcham revealed they hadn't yet seen the trailer, but they both thought the comic book version of Spider-Gwen was "cool."
The Spider-Gwen trailer that surfaced this week featured footage from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, along with Julianne Cancalosi portraying Spider-Gwen in scenes where she's wearing the masked costume. Even if a Spider-Gwen movie does happen, it likely won't be with Emma Stone, »
Before Sony joined forces with Marvel early this year, the studio was planning on building a Spider-Man cinematic universe. In addition to the Web-Slinger’s main films, there were also spinoffs starring the Sinister Six, Venom, and several female heroes in the works. Now that Spidey is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his big screen plans have changed, and while the spinoffs haven’t been shelved, Marvel isn’t interested in making any for the foreseeable future since they have a lot of work to do on this new version of Peter Parker. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told MTV that while it isn’t impossible that the McU could feature Spider-Man spinoffs, right now the focus is on fleshing out Spidey in his own movies. Feige said: Well, there could be [spin-offs]. But the truth is, our job right now is that single Spider-Man »
