Spider-Man Joins 'Avengers 2' Trailer in Fan Edit

5 March 2015 1:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though Marvel now has access to their most iconic superhero Spider-Man, we won't get to see a reboot of the character on the big screen until at least next summer, when Peter Parker is rumored to be appearing in Captain America: Civil War. We don't have to wait that long, though, to imagine what the web-slinger looks like swinging alongside Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow. An inventive fan has inserted Spider-Man into what is considered the most epic shot in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron, giving us a new look at these mighty Marvel superheroes.

No one has claimed credit yet for this magnificent looking animated gif which shows Spider-Man joining his soon to be team members, offering us a tease of what this will all feel like as Marvel moves towards the future. While it has been widely reported that Spider-Man will »

Spider-Man: 5 Reasons Drew Goddard Is Perfect (And 5 He’s Not)

3 March 2015 4:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/Wikipedia

The news broke last night and, whilst it has yet to be officially confirmed, the amount it’s being reported on makes it seem more like the “rumour” that Benedict Cumberbatch would play Doctor Strange – which took months for Marvel to give the nod to – than, say, all of that nonsense that’s been spread about the new Star Wars. The new Spider-Man movie have found itself a director and writer.

That man is Drew Goddard, a veteran TV writer who made his feature film debut with the horror trope-skewering The Cabin In The Woods a couple of years ago. It’s an interesting choice following an interesting turn of events, which has involved Sony apparently ditching their only recently-rebooted The Amazing Spider-Man franchise in favour of starting afresh, co-producing with Marvel Studios.

Which, amongst other things, means that Peter Parker will now be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

'Spider-Man' Reboot Circling Director Drew Goddard

2 March 2015 1:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In the wake of their new deal, Marvel and Sony are moving quickly on relaunching the Spider-Man franchise. The studio is interested in bringing Drew Goddard onboard to write and direct the upcoming film. Sources say Sony is in the early stages with this, and that Goddard is expected to meet with studio execs this week, but there is strong interest from both sides. Goddard had previously been tapped to helm Sony's planned Spider-Man spinoff film, Sinister Six, but it looks like Sony's plans for the web-slinging superhero have been put on the backburner as the studio

Drew Goddard Will Direct The Spectacular Spider-Man Reboot

2 March 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Exclusive breaking news from Latino Review… Drew Goddard (The Cabin In The Woods) will write and direct Sony’s new Spider-Man movie.

Titled “The Spectacular Spider-Man” the reboot will reportedly avoid the origins story route, instead beginning in a world where the web-slinger is already established.

Spider-Man’s personal life will be set during the High School years and both Sony and Marvel are keen on a new actor being able to grow into the role, which backs-up the previous expectation that Andrew Garfield is out and a new Spider-Man will need to be cast. The hope is the series could work similarly to the Harry Potter saga.

Latino Review report that a major part of the new Spider-Man movie will involve him going toe-to-toe with Iron Man and then attempting to pass an “audition” to become part of the Avengers ensemble.

The first film will involve the Sinister Six villains coming together, »

Irrfan Khan: 'I spend more than what I earn in Hollywood'

1 March 2015 3:55 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Irrfan Khan says that he often spends more money than what he earns when working in Hollywood film projects.

The Life of Pi and Slumdog Millionaire star said that it is the type of characters he gets to play in Us cinema which is the real reward.

Khan told Hindustan Times: "Whatever I earn in Hollywood gets finished there itself. A number of times, you end up spending extra from your own pocket, but I do it since I know I won't get opportunities to play such nuanced roles anywhere else."

The 48-year-old also spoke about the trend of Indian actors name dropping Hollywood projects to sound more successful in their home market.

"There might be a few actors - in need of some news - who use these roles as a gimmick," he said.

"The collaboration is growing. I feel that now, we will see a lot of people working abroad. »

Josh Hutcherson wants to play Spider-Man: "That'd be really cool"

28 February 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

The Hunger Games actor previously auditioned for the role before Andrew Garfield won it in Marc Webb's time at the helm.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies he said: "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it: It's Spider-Man, that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?"

Hutcherson had previously pitched for the role unsuccessfully, and footage from his audition tape has emerged.

Do we need another Spiderman?

Spider-Man joins Marvel: Who could replace Andrew Garfield?

Former Community star Donald Glover - who was also linked to the role prior to Garfield's casting - said he would not "campaign" for the part, but added that playing Spider-Man would be "an honour".

Dylan O'Brien and Logan Lerman are also reportedly in the frame, »

Josh Hutcherson to revamp role of Spiderman?

Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

The Hunger Games actor previously auditioned for the role before Andrew Garfield won it in Marc Webb's time at the helm.

Do we need another Spiderman?

Now Marvel joins Spiderman who should play the webslinger?

If Peter Parker is dropped and filmmakers choose to go down the Miles Morales route, Donald Glover could be in the frame.

But if Parker's tale is rebooted for a third time, names like Hutcherson, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Dylan O'Brien could be seen topping a film poster. »

Would Hunger Games Star Josh Hutcherson Be Up For Playing Marvel's Spider-man?

27 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been almost three weeks since news broke that Spider-Man will finally be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (before spinning off into a standalone 2017 movie), and fans are still eager to know more about Sony and Marvel's plans; especially which "young" actor will be playing the Web-Slinger. Well, before being cast in The Hunger Games, for which he's now best known, Josh Hutcherson was among several actors in the mix for Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man reboot. Though that coveted role ultimately went to Andrew Garfield then, would Hutcherson still be game for playing Spidey now? "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it," Hucherson told Yahoo! last week. "It's Spider-Man, that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen." While previously in contention, the 22-year-old had admitted that even though he wasn't much of a comic book reader, he »

The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson interested in playing Spider-Man

27 February 2015 5:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of Marvel and Sony reaching a deal so Spider-Man can feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been a fair amount of speculation on who could play the friendly neighbourhood wall crawler. If reports are to be believed, Sony and Marvel are looking at Logan Lerman (Fury) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) as the front runners.

Back before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one man who did audition for the role was Josh Hutherson (The Hunger Games). Now that the role is available again, would be interested in putting on the suit?

“Yeah, of course I’d think about doing it: It’s Spider-Man, that’d be really cool,” Hutcherson told Yahoo! Movies. “There’s not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?”

'Spider-Man': Hutcherson and Glover Talk Casting Rumors

26 February 2015 11:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are two big questions facing the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this moment in time: Who will play Spider-Man? And...Will he be white? We may get those answers next week as Robert Downey Jr. teased an impending announcement from Marvel that promises to be epic in nature. While we wait for next Thursday to roll around, we do have some interesting comments from two actors currently rumored to be up for the role. The first is The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who was actually eyed to play the character way back in 2011, before Andrew Garfield got cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man. The second is Donald Glover, whom fans rallied around as he campaigned for the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, too.

'Spider-Man': Marvel May Have More Control Than Sony

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over Marvel and Sony's announcement earlier this month that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the beloved web slinger reportedly set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, although that hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet. Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that Tom Rothman will step in for Amy Pascal, who left her job as Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman and Motion Picture Group president just weeks ago. Some have worried that this may hinder the new Spider-Man reboot, since Tom Rothman oversaw superhero flops such as Daredevil and Elektra during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. However, a new report from Latino-Review reveals that Marvel may have more control over Spidey than originally thought.

The site backs up previous reports that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach are "producers in name only" with the new Spider-Man movie, »

10 Things You Need To Know About James Cameron’s Spider-Man

25 February 2015 9:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony clearly have no idea what they’re doing with Spider-Man. Sam Raimi’s trilogy of films started off strong, before dropping off a quality cliff into a terrible movie ravine with the final instalment. So precipitous was the descent, they decided to just junk the whole thing and start again with The Amazing Spider-Man reboot, which has already disenfranchised fans within two movies.

They considered starting again, bringing back Sam Raimi, and even pushing forward with an animated film from the makers of The Lego Movie. In the end they’ve gone ahead and thrown in with Marvel Studios, who will co-produce the next Amazing Spider-Man film – although, apparently, with a new cast and director. So they’re basically starting again.

If that seems like a bunch of bad ideas strung together, however, just know that it could’ve been worse. So much worse. In the early nineties Marvel weren’t doing so well, »

9 Ways The Amazing Spider-Man Almost Turned Out Awesome

25 February 2015 8:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/Marvel

The Amazing Spider-Man is now officially over. Andrew Garfield is a former Peter Parker, The Sinister Six will never assemble (at least not with Dane DeHaan at the head) and you’ll never have to suffer through Electro’s dub-step soundtrack again.

Across two films, Sony managed to take the once most popular superhero in the world and turn him into a bland establishment that life-long fans couldn’t give a toss about. After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 under-performed, the studio were so desperate they went running to Marvel involved, and thus the hero will be rebooted yet again in next year’s Captain America: Civil War (if not in another movie before).

It’s not an overly surprising run of events. The whole sub-franchise was built on Sony’s desire to retain the character (they have to make a new film every few years, or the »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

23 February 2015 2:01 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nicolas Cage is the latest name to join the fray as production has begun on Oliver Stone’s "Snowden," his international thriller centered on the story of whistleblower Edward Snowden. Cage will play the role of a former U.S. Intelligence Official in the film that already stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the former computer contractor who leaked classified National Security Agency documents in the summer of 2013.
