Spidey struggles with his parachute in Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel illustrator Ryan Meinerding has taken to Twitter to share three pieces of concept art from Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring the scene where Spidey becomes entangled in his web parachute after being dropped above a lake by The Vulture; check them out here…

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3 share Japan box office

15 August 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming has failed to come out on top during its opening weekend in Japan.

Japan might not have the market power of China in the box office world, but it’s still an important location for Hollywood’s biggest films to do well in.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the latest blockbuster to open in the market but it has ended up splitting the top spot with Despicable Me 3.

Homecoming may have debuted number one by box office takings, bringing in $4.1 million to Despicable Me 3‘s $3.7 million, but Japan ranks its box office by admissions, not money earned.

Debuting last weekend, Homecoming had 290,000 admissions which is below Despicable Me’s 328,000. And considering Despicable Me 3 is in its fourth weekend, this isn’t the result Spider-Man would have hoped for.

This was, however, 7% better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which finished its Japanese run with $28.7 million (not accounting for »

The Spider-Man: Homecoming poster happened completely by accident

14 August 2017 4:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the best posters to come out for Spider-Man: Homecoming was the laziest one: A sleeping Spider-Man, clad in school jacket, with headphones on. The poster encapsulates everything that makes this Spider-Man different from the previous incarnations. It was perfect.

What you may not have known is that the poster is all just the result of a very tired Tom Holland. An Instagram user going by the name of therealspideyman posted an interview clip where Tom Holland reveals the true origin of the poster.

“Interesting story about that poster is that is actually me asleep,” said Holland. “That’s not part of the movie, that’s me in-between takes asleep. We were shooting this scene and I was just really tired that day, and I was just asleep on the floor, and the photographer took a picture. So when they made that the poster, I was like ‘What! What the hell, »

Donald Glover “not ruling out” a future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe

10 August 2017 1:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were around any group of people talking comic book movies back between 2010-2014, then you probably heard at least one person passionately arguing that Donald Glover (Atlanta, Community) should play Miles Morales (another Spider-Man in the Marvel Universe) in a live-action Spider-Man film. This all began when Glover himself was campaigning to play the web-slinger prior to Marc Webb’s reboot The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield. Since then, obviously, the web-slinger has been loaned back over to Marvel, and we have a shiny new Spidey in the form of Tom Holland.

Perhaps as a bit of fan-service, and a nice gesture to Glover himself, Jon Watts included Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming to play character Aaron Davis: Uncle to Miles Morales himself!

In a recent actor profile by the Hollywood Reporter, Donald Glover shed some light on how he got involved with Spider-Man: Homecoming, and also »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Atwell, who has a long standing relationship with Disney after her first appearance as Agent Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, is said to be cast as Christopher Robin’s wife in a story which will focus on Robin as an adult, a businessman focused on his work and success and who has lost his childlike sense of imagination.

Captain Marvel Set In The 90s, Features Nick Fury And Skrulls

23 July 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealed a whole heap of tantalizing details about Captain Marvel, the upcoming movie starring Brie Larson that will be the McU’s first female-led film.

First up, we now know that the pic will not be a contemporary piece but will be set in the 1990s. This isn’t the first time that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken a trip to the past, of course. Captain America: The First Avenger was set in World War II and Ant-Man established that Hank Pym had been superhero’ing since the 1960s.

In fact, fans will remember that back in 2008’s Iron Man, Nick Fury told Tony Stark that he wasn’t the only superhero around. Slowly but surely, we’re now finding out who those heroes were that existed before him.

Speaking of Fury, we’ve known for a while that Samuel L. Jackson’s S. »

A '90s-Set 'Captain Marvel' Movie Opens Up Worlds of Possibilities

22 July 2017 6:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The news from Marvel's San Diego Comic-Con panel that Captain Marvel will take place in the past — the 1990s, to be precise — is a surprising one. So far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has enjoyed a tight continuity (and contemporary focus) after the 1940s setting of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger. But is there a method to the nostalgic madness?

In one sense, the backwards time jump for Captain Marvel is oddly reminiscent of Warner Bros.' cinematic treatment of Wonder Woman, whose first solo movie took place in the past after her onscreen introduction via a cameo during a »

‘Captain Marvel’ to Take Place in the 1990s; Villains Will Be the Skrulls

22 July 2017 6:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Captain Marvel is pretty far in the distance, and it lands kind of awkwardly in the McU. It doesn’t arrive until 2019, and it’s sandwiched between two Avengers movies. So how is Marvel planning to handle this super-powered character and where she fits in the whole McU? It turns out, she’s been here this whole time—her first movie is set in the past. At today’s Marvel panel at Comic-Con, the studio revealed that Captain Marvel takes place in the 1990s. It will be the first Marvel movie since Captain America: The First Avenger … »

11 July 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is one very busy boy. Although Sherlock might be, for all intents and purposes, over, the actor is knee-deep in a host of other projects. He’s currently filming Avengers: Infinity War for Marvel, with The Child in Time and How To Stop Time on the horizon, too. Cumberbatch also has voice roles in The Grinch and Jungle Book coming up, while other parts he’s being eyed for include The Man in the Rockerfeller Suit and an untitled Steven Knight thriller.

As if all that wasn’t enough, he’s also attached to Patrick Melrose, a five-part series from Showtime based on the semi-autobiographical novels of Edward St. Aubyn. The books follow the author’s dysfunctional upbringing as part of an upper-class English family and his later alcohol and heroin addictions, as well as his loves and losses.

Pair join star and executive producer Benedict Cumberbatch. The Crown’s Anna Madeley joins cast.

Each of the five episodes is devoted to one of the five novels. The series will encompass the saga of Patrick Melrose’s life, from his abusive youth at the hands of his father, played by Weaving, and mother, played by Leigh, to his life as an outrageous playboy and struggles to defy the pain of his past.  

The limited series will take place in wide-ranging locales and time periods such as the south of France »

10 ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

7 July 2017 4:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

(Spoilers: Do not read if you haven’t seen “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”)

With Spider-Man’s move into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character’s first solo outing was bound to include plenty of fun nods to the other famous superheros. From Robert Downey Jr.’s appearance as Tony Stark/Iron Man, to Peter’s school showing PSAs featuring Captain America, and references to Thor, Shield, and more, there was plenty for fans to take in.

But there were also more subtle nods to the ever-expanding McU as well as to the wall-crawler’s own 55-year history. Here are 10 Easter eggs from “Spider-Man: Homecoming” you may have missed.

Spider-Man Theme Song

The film starts right off the bat with a nod to Spider-Man’s long history. Rather than include the usual music that plays over the Marvel logo opening that’s included in every film, the music in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is actually the theme from the 1967 “Spider-Man” cartoon.

Robert Downey Jr. explains why Tom Holland is a perfect Spider-Man

3 July 2017 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Robert Downey Jr. and Spider-Man actor Tom Holland seem to share a lot of chemistry in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not surprisingly, it looks like that comradery translates off-screen as well. In a recent interview with News Corp Australia Network, the Iron Man actor gushed over co-star Tom Holland and his portrayal of Spider-Man:

“Tom is the perfect man for the job. He’s enthusiastic, bright and gifted, a very physically talented guy by virtue of his dance and acrobatic background. He has just the right combination of elements required to bring a new take on the character.”

It’s a rare thing to find an actor who can inhabit a role so completely. Looking at trailers, and watching interviews with the actor, it really seems easy for Tom Holland to jump into this role. This more than likely left lots of time for Holland to make the role, and by extension the film, »
