19 February 2017 5:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we’ve all seen Michael Keaton’s Vulture in the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Adrian Toomes isn’t the only villain set to cause trouble for Tom Holland’s wall-crawler in this July’s Marvel and Sony-produced reboot.

Spidey is also going to find himself going up against The Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) and Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine), and now thanks to some promotional artwork from the New York Toy Fair, we’ve got our first look at the latter in full costume; take a look here, and let us know your thoughts on the design in the comments below…

With Spider-Man: Homecoming set to swing into cinemas this July, Lego has unveiled two of its upcoming Lego Marvel Super Heroes tie-in sets in the Atm Heist Battle (76082) and Beware the Vulture (76083), the latter of which includes a mystery character whose identity Marvel and Lego are looking to keep secret for the time being.

Atm Heist Battle features Spider-Man, along with two Bank Robber minifigures, dressed as Captain America and The Hulk.

Beware the Vulture includes Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Vulture and a myster character.

If we had to hazard a guess as to the identity of the top secret minifigure, we’d go for The Tinkerer who is being played by Michael Chernus, although it could also be Bokeem Woodbine’s Shocker.

Michael Douglas Will Return as Hank Pym in Ant-Man 2

10 February 2017 1:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most important elements of success are not always related to box office dollars. In the case of something like Ant-Man, it proved that risks can be taken and that those risks can pay off. Not only was Ant-Man a pretty silly concept to try and get mainstream audiences on board with, but the decision to focus on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as opposed to Hank Pym, was also somewhat risky for die hard fans. Ultimately, it worked out pretty well. Even though the first Ant-Man focused on Scott Lang, Michael Douglas did appear in the movie as Hank Pym and the good news is, he is going to be back for the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Pre-production will be getting underway on Ant-Man 2 shortly and we will likely be getting some more details on the movie here and there as things ramp up. »

According to the film’s director, there’s no word on Warcraft 2 – yet

10 February 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it didn’t have a great domestic theatrical run, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft was a huge success overseas and became the most successful video game movie ever made. We did hear word late last year that a sequel was in development solely designed for the Chinese market, but now the director has thrown some shade on those discussions.

When asked on Twitter if a sequel was getting made, Jones simply replied, “Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from [the studio].

.@WellMax81 Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from @Legendary

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

Me too! Up to @Legendary https://t.co/oa9mHPgTl3

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

@hanimishka Definitely. The hard work is done! The next film would be so much fun!

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

He then retweeted praise from fans of the film, presumably in the hopes to get a sequel off the ground.

"Captain America" Councilmember on Trump's Immigration Ban and His Parents' American Dream

30 January 2017 12:03 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Many feel Captain America is needed now more than ever, so it's no surprise that the image of a San Jose Councilmember being sworn in using Cap's shield made national headlines — and elevated the young politician to internet fame.

San Jose Councilmember (and comic book fan) Lan Diep dug the collector's item (produced for Captain America: The First Avenger) out of his closet and on a whim decided to bring it to his swearing in ceremony Jan. 24. Messages began pouring in praising him, with many his new fans assuming Diep used the shield as a form of protest »

Director J.A. Bayona releases Jurassic World 2 teaser image, Bryce Dallas Howard says shoot will begin “really soon”

30 January 2017 9:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While an official production start date for Jurassic World 2 has yet to be revealed, recent updates by director J.A. Bayona and returning star Bryce Dallas Howard suggest it’s just around the corner.

Last Thursday, Bayona decided to tease the film’s upcoming shoot by posting an image of several hard hats with the Jurassic Park logo plastered on them on Twitter. His tweet made it clear that he’s getting ready to dive into the world of scientists and dinosaurs, reading: “Getting ready for the journey.” See the image here…

Additionally, at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Howard, who was nominated for her role as Lacie Pound in Black Mirror’s “Nosedive,” briefly spoke to Et about the sequel. On production, she excitedly said, “I’m leaving really soon. It’s awesome. Now we’re in the flow of things where everyone is talking every day and »

Box Office: Doctor Strange Is Still Earning Money As It Debuts At #1 In Japan

29 January 2017 2:51 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Doctor Strange was finally released in Japan this weekend, and it debuted there with an impressive $4.5 million. This was the final territory that the Marvel Studios movie had to debut in, and as a result, it's now reached the $664 million mark worldwide ($433 million of that has come from overseas). That's a great result for Doctor Strange, and you have to believe we'll now end up seeing a sequel.  The movie passing $700 million would have been nice, but considering the fact that it was produced for around $165 million, it's earned more than enough to justify a follow-up in the very near future.  After all, don't forget that Doctor Strange has passed the worldwide cumes of The Incredible Hulk ($263 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($371 million), Thor ($449 million), Ant-Man ($520 million), Iron Man ($585 million), and Iron Man 2 ($623.9 million). Long before the Sorcerer Supreme returns in a solo outing, however, he'll soon return »

Ewen Bremner Reveals New Wonder Woman Details

27 January 2017 2:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’re a little less than six months away now from Wonder Woman. That sounds like a lot of time, but it’ll blow by soon enough. The Gal Gadot-headlined superhero origin story has massive expectations placed upon it, and we’re practically praying that director Patty Jenkins lives up to all the potential in front of her lap.

Details, as per usual with these superhero movies, are limited at the moment, but we’re learning more and more with each passing day. Today, for instance, a few new details come to us from co-star Ewen Bremner, who’s playing an undisclosed character in the upcoming film.

Promoting T2 Trainspotting, another big release (which isn’t as good as the original, apparently), Bremner revealed a smidge more about Wonder Woman during an interview with Digital Spy:

I play a character who’s enlisted by Wonder Woman to help save »
