Spider-Man: Homecoming gets another new poster

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After yesterday’s release of not one, but two posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel has debuted yet another one-sheet for the upcoming film. Unlike the previous two, which prominently featured the Avengers Tower, this one focuses more on Spider-Man’s home neighbourhood of Queens in New York City (though Avengers Tower can still be distantly seen in the background). Check out the new poster here…

Along with Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony is apparently moving forward with a Venom spin-off as well as developing a Black Cat/Silver Sable film, both of which will apparently be unrelated to Homecoming and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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 »

Spider-Man: Homecoming gets two new posters

24 March 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the midst of all the Justice League character posters and teasers we’ve been getting over the last couple days, we now have a reminder that there are other superhero movies incoming this year as Marvel and Sony have released two new posters of the anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. The two posters reinforce that this film takes place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Avengers Tower looms over the wall crawler in one, and sees Spidey climbing up it in the other. Check them them out here…

Its interesting just how much of a different feel each poster gives. The first reflects the fun and kid-like nature of Spider-Man, balancing high school with his super-heroics while the second poster is more typical of a superhero film, almost calling back to the look of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Its also funny how, despite Tony Stark’s prominent role in the trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, »

Will Chris Evans Return in Captain America 4?

24 March 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not all that long ago, as in, last week kind of not all that long ago, it looked like Chris Evans may be getting ready to hang up his shield for good and say goodbye to the role of Captain America. Now we have word from the actor himself that he is perfectly willing to play the part of Steve Rogers in the future, but the decision isn't really up to him. It is all up to Marvel Studios and, if they want to play ball, it sounds like Chris Evans may return in Captain America 4 after Avengers 4 brings Marvel Phase 4 to a close. Dang that's a lot of 4s!

While it is true that Chris Evans' contract will be up with Marvel following Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, that doesn't mean he is done, as was previously reported. The actor recently spoke with Collider about whether or not »

Newswire: Chris Evans isn’t ready to hang up Captain America’s shield

24 March 2017 6:14 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Although it’s not quite lengthy a run as Logan star Hugh Jackman’s, Chris Evans has been donning the old stars and stripes as Captain America for what must seem like an especially long time in Hollywood years. He first joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and by the time Avengers 4 rolls around, he’ll have played the character in 7 films total (not including popping up in post-credits scenes and being impersonated by Loki). He could certainly be forgiven for wanting to move on or stay put and build his retirement fund. In recent years, Evans suggested he was leaning towards the former, telling Variety in 2014 that he planned to start directing once his contract was up.

But maybe that big fight in Civil War has old Cap rethinking the pending split, because he now tells Collider that he ...

Samuel L. Jackson Offers Possible Hint on Nick Fury In The M.C.U.

15 March 2017 10:25 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

CinemaBlend has reported that Samuel L. Jackson has possibly dropped a hint at the whereabouts of Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The last we saw Nick Fury, he helped The Avengers set up a new base in New York after battling Ultron in The Avenger's: Age of Ultron. Since then we've had Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, and Doctor Strange with no sign of Nick Fury. Where could he be?  

According to an interview on the New York radio station Hot 97, Samuel L. Jackson stated... 

"You didn't see me in Civil War. You know, I'm still trying to figure out what, you know, the skull is doing..." 

That is an interesting comment if you think about it. What did he mean by skull? Could he have meant Johann Schmidt, The Red Skull, who we last saw in Captain America: The First Avenger? At the end of that movie, »

Is Samuel L. Jackson hinting at a Red Skull return?

15 March 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel L. Jackson is still making his way around the press circuit participating in interviews for the recently released Kong: Skull Island [read our reviews here, here and here], and Hot 97 took the opportunity to field him a question about what Nick Fury is up to in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check out the video here…

With regards to Marvel and his character Nick Fury, Jackson teased that: “You didn’t see me in Civil War. I’m still out there trying to figure out what The Skull is going to…”

The confusion here is that there is no character named The Skull, so it’s possible he is referring to Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving in Captain America: The First Avenger.

Did Samuel L. Jackson Inadvertently Confirm Red Skull For Avengers: Infinity War?

14 March 2017 6:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When we last saw Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, he was providing some much-needed assistance to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Conspicuous by his absence in Captain America: Civil War, the hero looks set to make his presence felt in Avengers: Infinity War, but will he be joined by a fan-favourite villain?

During a recent interview to promote the release of Kong: Skull Island, Jackson reiterated the fact that he won’t be making an appearance in Black Panther, but when he alluded to what the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director has been up to since we last saw him, he revealed:

“You didn’t see me in [Captain America:] Civil War. I’m still out there trying to figure out what The Skull is going to…”

Unfortunately, he trailed off after that, but as you might expect, speculation is now running rampant that »

Samuel L. Jackson Performs His Film Career in 10 Minutes (Watch)

9 March 2017 11:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With an illustrious career and over 150 acting credits, Samuel L. Jackson is no stranger to performing. Yet, on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Jackson had the pressure of the host’s “Role Call” segment. Together, Jackson and Corden reenacted over two dozen of Jackson’s most iconic films… all in 10 minutes.

In white jersey T-shirts and black blazers, Corden asked Jackson, “Do you think we would be able to recreate some of those films right here, right now?”

“I don’t see why not,” Jackson replied before the duo embarked on a cinematic journey from “Goodfellas” to “Jurassic Park,” “Shaft” to “The Incredibles” and “Jackie Brown” to “Star Wars.”

Switching wigs and swapping ties and jackets at super speed, Jackson and Corden began with the 1994 film “Pulp Fiction” and ended with “Soul Men.” They were also sure to plug Jackson’s upcoming film “Kong: Skull Island,” which »

First official image from Jurassic World 2 teases new lead

9 March 2017 1:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With cameras now rolling on the hotly-anticipated Jurassic World sequel, director J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) has taken to Twitter to unveil the first official image from the fifth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise…

As of yet, we don’t know the identity of the young girl in the image, although last year a casting call was issued for a new lead character called “Lucy”, who was described as follows:

She is a young girl around 9 years of age. The girl playing “Lucy” must be at least 9 years of age by February 2017, but cannot be over 10 years old. She must be a sensitive and clever actress capable of handling long and complex scenes. Lucy must be able to handle a range of emotions from tender moments with her father, to anxiety, bravery, and shock.

The as-yet-untitled Jurassic World sequel is set for release on June 22nd, 2018 and sees J.A. Bayona »

Reshoots reportedly underway on Spider-Man: Homecoming at Disneyland

3 March 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over four months to go before Tom Holland’s wall-crawler swings back into cinemas, it seems that reshoots are underway on Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, with McU Exchange highlighting the following tweets, including one from Disneyland Resort:

Of course, this being a Marvel production as opposed to a DC movie, the reshoots are a completely normal part of the process, and in no way means there’s any problems behind the scenes (that’s a joke by the way, before any irate DC fans launch a tirade against me).

There is of course also the possibility that these are actually scenes for Avengers: Infinity War, but I guess we’ll not know for sure until July. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Chinese poster is certainly different from your typical one sheet

27 February 2017 12:36 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The promotional campaign for Spider-Man: Homecoming will presumably step up a gear once Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in May, but in the meantime the official Chinese Instagram account has shared a rather unique poster for the Marvel and Sony produced reboot. The poster features a cartoon Peter Parker running for the school bus, as his Spider-Man glove hangs from his backpack. Note the little Spidey face on the sole of his shoe too…

Vincent D’Onofrio would love to see Kingpin battle Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

27 February 2017 5:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For those of you unaware, Vincent D’Onofrio has one of the most fan interactive Twitter accounts of any actor out there on social media. He genuinely seems like a great, down-to-earth guy, so it’s no surprise that when someone asked him if he would like to see his version of Kingpin (seen in Netflix’s Daredevil) go up against Tom Holland’s new incarnation of Spider-Man, he joyfully replied. Check out the exchange here…

Can We Give The DC Extended Universe A Little Credit?

24 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

"The DC Extended Universe is in trouble." That’s a lot of the narrative surrounding this universe from Warner Bros that began with Man of Steel in 2012 and continued in 2016 with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Frankly, a lot of fans don’t seem to like these movies, and some have seen the last two films on the slate as a desperate attempt to catch up to Marvel’s own Cinematic Universe before they’ve earned their place alongside them.

But is that really the case? Do they really deserve all the naysayers surrounding them these days?

We believe the answer is twofold, as in "yes, and no."

First, let’s start by getting the negative press out of the way. The Flash lost two directors in a year, and The Batman lost Affleck at its helm, seeming to imply a lack of faith in the project. Meanwhile, they »

Trevor Habberstad, X-Men and Doctor Strange Stuntman, Passes Away at 27

22 February 2017 5:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, only this time, for a young man who passed far before his prime. Trevor Habberstad, a stuntman and stunt coordinator who most recently worked on X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange and Passengers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 27. The stuntman succumbed to a rare form of cancer. Trevor Habberstad was on a family vacation in Hawaii last year when he began to feel stomach pain that doctors initially thought was appendicitis, but after another evaluation, it was revealed that he actually had gastric cancer.

Jeff Habberstad, Trevor's father and a stuntman/stunt coordinator as well, told Khts News in their hometown of Santa Clarita, California that they just found out about a week and a half ago that the cancer had spread into the late stuntman's brain. Jeff Habberstad served as a stunt coordinator for director Bryan Singer on 2014's »

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.
