Filming for Spider-Man: Homecoming took to the streets of Atlanta, Georgia last night, and Tom Holland (or his stunt double) was spotted back in the tight superhero threads on set. This time around, the web-slinger was seen behind the wheel of a sports car which should conjur some hilarity on the big-screen given we learned in Captain America: Civil War that Peter Parker doesn’t have his driver’s license yet; after all, he is only fifteen years old. We can only guess what might lead to Spidey driving in Homecoming; maybe the brakes have stopped working, if not his web-shooters. However, what’s more interesting is that the car appears to be an Audi, which we all know has been the only carmaker truly worthy of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark when he’s not suited up as Iron Man. Of course, it could just be a coincidence »
Back in May, while promoting Captain America: Civil War, directors Antony Russo and Joe Russo revealed that Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War Part II will get new titles. Another report from last month revealed that the first movie had been retitled just Avengers 3. Now it seems that the studio has decided on an official title. Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 has been changed to just Avengers: Infinity War and it will no longer be two movies. Avengers 4 is currently going under the temporary title of Untitled Avengers, with the official title to be determined at a later date.
Deadline reports that, despite the title changes, both movies' release dates of May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019 remain unchanged. The original titles were first unveiled during a Marvel press event in the fall of 2014, when the studio unveiled their entire Phase 3 slate. However, it seems that both the filmmakers and the »
Director Jon Watts is currently hard at work filming Spider-Man: Homecoming in Atlanta, Georgia. He and star Tom Holland, along with some of the rest of the new cast, took a break last weekend to surprise fans with an appearance, and footage at San Diego Comic-Con. The footage hasn't made its way online yet, but excitement is at an all-time high for Peter Parker's first full movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it looks like another Avenger may be joining him.
A recent, somewhat vague report from the Atlanta Filming Twitter account seems to confirm that Scarlett Johansson was spotted on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Does this mean that Black Widow could be joining Spidey and Tony Stark to take down The Vulture? Maybe. But it could mean a lot of things. Here is what the account tweeted out on Wednesday.
"Well, well... hi Scarlett. What'cha doing here? »
The next “Avengers” adventure will exist as one movie, not a previously announced two, Walt Disney said on Friday. The studio will release “Avengers: Infinity War” as planned on May 4, 2018. What was slated to be the second part in that story, “Avengers: Infinity War Part II,” has now been renamed as an “Untitled Avengers” project. Presumably, this will be a completely different story involving the heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). That title is still scheduled to hit on May »

(For this article I'm using this awesome photo of awesome Spidey cosplayer Arsenio Garcia [Instagram: @arsenio.arsenal] because...awesome.)
During an interview last weekend, amidst all of the San Diego Comic-Con festivities, Tom Holland was asked what he'd be working on when he flew back to the set of Spider-man: Homecoming. His answer was pretty vague, stating he had a lot of running around and jumping, and that it'd be a night shoot. He did say, "I'm not going to tell you where, because that would give something away," which implies some top secret stuff is at play.
Well, now we've got some pictures from that night shoot. Nothing exciting, but they offer another glimpse of Holland in his Spider-man: Homecoming suit. But what comes with these photos, and how it can relate to the cryptic tease from Holland, could be pretty exciting. Join me after the pictures to discuss:

On Friday, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals gave Jack Urbont, composer of the "Iron Man Theme" on the 1960s television show The Marvel Super Heroes, another shot in a copyright dispute with Sony Music over sampling by rapper Ghostface Killer. The decision not only has something of interest for fans of Marvel comics and Wu Tang Clan, but also for those dealing with the complexity of ownership in entertainment. Urbont, whose later musical work includes That 70's Show, Oprah, 20/20 and The View, was asked by Marvel's Stan Lee in the 1960s to create music for the television show, and after reviewing comic books

We’ve got a few pieces of news coming out of the Spider-Man: Homecoming camp tonight to share with you. First up, following up on some exciting reports from Comic-Con last weekend, we’ve now got a new batch of set photos to feast our eyes on, which can be seen below.
Currently filming in Atlanta, the reboot has been kept tightly under wraps up to this point, and unfortunately, these pics don’t do much to change that. We see star Tom Holland suited up as the titular hero and the backpack over his shoulders indicates that he’s on his way to school. It’s nothing that will stop the presses, but it’s aways nice to get a look at the highly anticipated movie, no matter how insignificant it may be.
Thankfully, this next bit of news is a bit more exciting. According to Twitter user Atlanta Filming, »

There are some people who are literally born to play certain roles—like it’s in their genetic code. Some of those people include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, John Wayne as any cowboy, or Donald Trump as King Oompa Loompa. And then there’s Stephen Lang, who seems a perfect choice to play the comic book villain, Cable, who is set to make his big-screen debut in Deadpool 2. Lang... Read More »

One of the biggest surprises of this year's Comic-Con was the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast and director Jon Watts flying in from Atlanta during production, to showcase the first footage. Unfortunately, that footage has not been released quite yet, and we don't know if Sony and Marvel have plans to release it anytime soon. Still, we learned quite a great deal about the story just from the stars' brief appearance, and today we have even more details from director Jon Watts.
We first met Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spider-Man in this summer's epic blockbuster Captain America: Civil War, where he was recruited to join Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) side of this epic battle. We saw in the post credit scene that Peter was exploring his new high-tech suit that Tony Stark built him, but we haven't heard much about this suit quite yet.

Between director Michael Bay's personal website and the social media channels for Transformers: The Last Knight, there have been a slew of updates from the set, whether it be photos introducing new characters, or videos featuring new scenes being shot. Ever since filming started last month, Michael Bay has been sending out official photos of the new Autobots and Decepticons that will be featured in this sequel, and today we have another new vehicle reveal. The director gave us our first look at a new Decepticon known as Onslaught.
The photo debuted at MichaelBay.com, although the director wouldn't reveal any further details about this character. Fans of the original animated series may remember Onslaught as the leader of a group known as the Combaticons, who would all turn into the combined massive robot known as Bruticus. We don't know for sure if the Combaticons or Bruticus will be »
When it was announced that Marvel Comics was planning to replace Tony Stark in the Iron Man armor with young Riri Williams, the fan-casting was immediate. One of the many names brought up was British actress Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei on HBO's Game of Thrones), and as it turns out, there may actually be some interest there. During the Women Who Kick Ass panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Emmanuel was asked which character she'd like to play in a comic book movie, regardless of gender, and responded thusly. "I quite like the Iron Man films. There seems to be this issue of women in technology and science films and things like that, and I think the idea of playing some sort of science whiz that also kicks butt like Iron Man could be fun." Obviously we still have no idea if we'll ever see Riri Williams take over from Stark (Robert Downey Jr. »
If you're going to play a legendary superhero on the big screen who better to get advice from than Iron Man and Thor. Tom Holland, who stars in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, says Chris Hemsworth offered him solid advice after they starred together in The Heart of the Sea. "Once I got cast he sent me a really lovely email about just make sure you keep your feet on the ground and you don't let this affect you," Holland told me at Comic-Con. "You keep your family and your friends close and, and that's exactly what I've done." In fact, he brought his best friend along to Comic-Con. Holland screen-tested with Robert Downey Jr. "As you can »
At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther from “Captain America: Civil War”) unveiled a sneak peek of a bonus feature clip from the in-home release of “Captain America: Civil War.” This is the first piece of bonus material to ever be revealed from this year’s biggest blockbuster. The clip is from the 60-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette titled “United We Stand, Divided We Fall – The Making of Captain America: Civil War Part 1 & 2.” It showcases how Marvel selected Black Panther and features interviews with all-star cast members who explain what it was like to welcome an all-new character to the McU family. When the year’s biggest blockbuster Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” arrives early on Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on Sept. 2 and on Blu-ray™ 3D, »

Over the weekend, Marvel Studios once again absolutely dominated Hall H at at San Diego Comic-Con, which came as no surprise, but that doesn't mean the panel was without surprises. Kevin Feige and the rest of the Marvel family came to play, bringing Spider-Man: Homecoming footage, Baby Groot and the whole Black Panther cast. But there is no doubt that the studio heavily focused on the upcoming Doctor Strange. One of the major reveals about the movie was that it will introduce the multiverse into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
For those who may be more of a casual fan and may not understand exactly what that means, the multiverse is a collection of various timelines and universes, which can allow for alternate versions of characters and storylines to co-exist. Doctor Strange is the perfect character to introduce this concept, but that means potentially big things for the future. Director Scott Derrickson »
On paper, the film, a $140 million adaptation of a beloved children’s book with a script by “ET” writer Melissa Mathison, had all the makings of a hit. Instead, the movie collapsed at the multiplexes, eking out less than $20 million in its opening weekend.
It’s a stunning fall for one of cinema’s highest-flying talents — a director whose finger was affixed to the pulse of mainstream tastes for decades. Yet “The Bfg” is only the latest high-profile casualty in a summer that’s seen a slew of big-budget domestic bombs. Indeed, red ink has spilled out from such misses as “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Warcraft,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, »

San Diego Comic-Con provided an update on Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming which is currently in production. The update addressed arguably the most prominent rumor floating around regarding the film's primary villain.
Actors Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori and Director Jon Watts were on hand to screen a short clip from the upcoming first solo Spider-Man movie in Marvel's Cinematic Universe, a clip that for now will not be screened for the public at large.
Along with the clip Sony offered up the first piece of official Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art featuring the webslinger battling Vulture, a villain who didn't quite make it into the previous two Spider-Man big screen franchises.
Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives in theaters next summer on July 7th. »
2016 certainly isn't anything like the old days of Marvel Studios. When they first started shooting Iron Man way back in 2007, they notoriously banned certain bloggers from sharing a single image from the set. Now, as Thor 3 continues production, it seems like we're getting some kind of update, photo or piece of viral footage everyday. We've seen leading man Chris Hemsworth joking around on set with director Taika Waititi. We've seen Mark Ruffalo showing off his larger-than-normal Hulk fists as he spends his time toiling away in motion capture Hell. And now today, we get a first look at star Karl Urban as he teases his new villainous Skurge look in Thor: Ragnarok.
The actor is heading to Queensland, Australia to shoot the movie. He shared the photo of his recently shaved head on Twitter. While he doesn't really provide any kind of update about what he'll be shooting first, »
Something that Marvel Studios is continuously commended for is their ability to look at the big picture while simultaneously making sure that each chapter in their unfolding saga is of the right quality. We've watched other studios stumble out of the gate, where they announce or tease years worth of movies based on a beloved property, only to have a film come out that forces them to either change or scrap all of those plans.
Sony famously had to abandon their plans for a Cinematic Universe based on Spider-Man. Warner Bros. just recently completed putting a facelift on pretty much their entire DC Extended Universe after Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice caused a negative stir for the brand.
The fact that Marvel has announced ambitious slates, often years in advance, and has been able to meet all of those promises (so far) is worthy of praise. Marvel honcho Kevin Feige »

Whenever it is confirmed that Marvel Studios will have a Comic-Con panel, fans are often left to guess which movies the studio will showcase that particular year. This year, the studio returned after skipping the con last year, and we knew going on that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Doctor Strange would be part of the presentation. Since production had started just a few weeks ago in Australia, most weren't surprised when the cast of Thor: Ragnarok wasn't in attendance, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige didn't leave this movie out of the presentation, by confirming the new cast members and releasing the official logo.
Marvel also debuted an amusing skit put together by director Taika Waititi, which Kevin Feige teased was in response to the filmmaker's constant queries about why Thor doesn't appear in Captain America: Civil War. Various reports from the panel revealed that this video is »
