Before Sony and Marvel announced last month that Spider-Man will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony was developing The Sinister Six spinoff, which had Drew Goddard attached to write and direct. Today, Latino Review is reporting that Sony and Marvel are bringing on Drew Goddard to write and direct their new Spider-Man standalone movie that will also feature the villainous Sinister Six group and even Iron Man from the McU. None of these details have been confirmed by Sony or Marvel at this time, but this report does reveal some very intriguing details, if proven to be true.
Sony is reportedly scrapping all of their planned Spider-Man movies, including The Sinister Six, Venom and Aunt May spinoffs to, "focus on a story involving Spidey versus The Sinister Six." This reboot is reportedly entitled Spectacular Spider-Man, which will not be an origin story, but will focus on a young Peter »
Sony and Marvel have reportedly settled on The Sinister Six director Drew Goddard to write and direct their new Spider-Man movie, according to a report from Latino-Review. The most intriguing part of this story is that it also reveals Iron Man and The Sinister Six will be featured in this standalone Spider-Man movie, which has been set for release on July 28, 2017. Drew Goddard's The Sinister Six movie, and the rest of Sony's spinoffs such as Venom and an Aunt May project, have been completely scrapped at this time.
As you likely know by now, the new Spider-Man will first show up in an upcoming Marvel movie, most likely Captain America: Civil War, where Robert Downey Jr. is reprising his role as Iron Man. While we don't know how large or small Spider-Man's role is in the Marvel movie, "a major part" of the standalone Spider-Man movie features Spidey fighting with Iron Man, »
The upcoming Marvel mega-sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron has released a new character poster focusing on Jeremy Renner as the team.s ace archer, Clint Barton, aka, Hawkeye. While it may not be chock-full of impactful elements or revealing, newsworthy credit blocks like the poster Marvel dropped last week, it is a somewhat cool shot of the Avenger. However, while it looks like the film will have Hawkeye bringing a bow and arrow to a robot fight, it.s clear that the purple-clad combatant against evil will have a lot of screen time to make up for after the way he got whammied by Loki in 2012.s The Avengers. There.s not much to say about this poster as far as any potential revelations about the film.s plot or about Hawkeye, himself. It.s just Jeremy Renner.s badass, but underutilized Hawkeye standing in the hypothetical battlefield of "posterland, »

Character posters for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron have come in thick and fast over the past few days, with all of the key players adorning their own one-sheet as marketing for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel kicks into high gear. And today, the studio has unveiled Hawkeye’s character poster, with star Jeremy Renner also revealing some intriguing tidbits on the future of the sidelined sharpshooter.
For one, it appears as though Renner’s S.H.I.E.L.D. agent will play a much bigger part in Age of Ultron, and the actor even hinted that he may play the archer for a solo movie should the opportunity present itself.

Up next in the series of character posters for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner. The actor revealed his new poster via his on Twitter account, @Renner4Real, and only added "the official #Hawkeye character poster."

While Hawkeye has already played with the Marvel gang with "The Avengers," it was mostly a wasted opportunity, with the hero sidelined for a significant chunk of the movie. But Jeremy Renner says he'll have more to do in the forthcoming "Avengers: Age Of Ultron." "Hulk has a more prominent role, and I have a more prominent role. There are a lot more scenes of the entire Avengers gang together —both in and out of the cape, so to speak. It’s making me become a total fanboy. It’s pretty fun to be a part of," he told The Daily Beast last fall. But perhaps more intriguingly is that he's signed for a solo movie... if Marvel chooses to go down that path (but let's be honest, as of now, no one is really clamoring for more Hawkeye). "I think most actors will sign on to do, like… 'Captain »

As with all character posters this isn't much to look at, but just below you have the character poster for Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which the actor's publicity team revealed on Renner's WhoSay page this morning. One thing more interesting than the poster, however, is an interview The Playlist noticed from The Daily Beast in which Renner acknowledges the fact he's signed on for a solo film should the studio want to make one, "I think most actors will sign on to do, like... Captain America 1-3 and then The Avengers 1-3, and then you're done. For me, I signed on to The Avengers 1-3 and then Hawkeye, in case they want to do a Hawkeye spin-off." I don't expect it to happen, but I guess anything is possible. Renner does say he and Hulk both have larger roles in the upcoming Age of Ultron saying, »

Despite not being one of the classic Marvel characters created by the likes of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, Wolverine is still considered one of their best superheroes and is easily as big a fan-favourite as Spider-Man and The Avengers.
It’s not hard to see why that is either. The gruff X-Men character is like a comic book version of Clint Eastwood, and his adventures – which are usually much more violent than those of Captain America and Daredevil for example – have been keeping Marvel fans hooked for decades now. Whether it’s in his classic blue and yellow costume, a vest and jeans, or any other variation worn since his first appearance in 1974, Wolverine is a Marvel mainstay.
However, with a history which goes back as far as the 19th Century, there’s a lot than even the most devoted fan may »

"It is their first meeting really," said Hemsworth about confronting the android known as 'The Vision'. "...it's conflicted. It's a big fight scene."
"Halfway through,Thor begins to have suspicions about what the bigger picture is here, you know.
"Who's involved...and he actually doesn't know by the end of it, but he starts to think something’s not right here.
"'Thor' then begins to see a bigger picture about what this threat could potentially be and it begins to tie into all of our films.
"...and the 'Scarlet Witch', at some point in the movie, will force all of the 'Avengers' to 'see' their greatest nightmares. »

Coinciding with the release of yesterday’s Thor character poster, the official Marvel site has posted an in depth interview with Chris Hemsworth, during which the star offered up a few details about the God of Thunder’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“We pick up with Thor having stayed on Earth from Thor: The Dark World. He’s part of the team. This is his home for the moment. The initial attack from Ultron is personal because it’s at all the Avengers, and Thor then begins to see a bigger sort of picture here about what this threat could be potentially. And it begins to tie in to all of our films… I think [Thor] openly admits he doesn’t think we can win this one. The threat is so great that all of them are scratching their heads wondering if this it. It’s just an onslaught, »
