We recently learned that Marvel is going to take a back to basics approach with their legacy characters in a bid to bring back longtime readers and make the Marvel Universe a little more recognisable, and the first proof of that comes with the launch of Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert's Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man. Kicking off in June, it's unclear what this means for The Amazing Spider-Man and Dan Slott's take on Peter Parker having his own company and going on globe-trotting adventures, but based on comments from Zdarsky, this definitely sounds like it could be the title many fans have been demanding for a while now. Here's an excerpt from his interview over at Entertainment Weekly: "The main book, Amazing Spider-Man, has kept things fresh by stretching the character and his situation. It’s still classic Spider-Man at its core, but transposed into new settings. With this book, »

Ee Rising Star Award is the only BAFTA award category, which allows the audience to vote and choose the most promising, new talent. This year, Tom Holland (The Impossible, Captain America: Civil War) was announced as the triuphator, beating the impressive competitors (Ruth Negga, Laia Costa, Anya Taylor-Joy and Lucas Hedges). It's a very good news for the budding actor, as he joined the group of successful, "young" stars, like James McAvoy (2006), Tom Hardy (2011), or last year's John Boyega. Besides his well-deserved win, one more interesting thing has happened for all of the Spider-Man fans. Tonight, Tom Holland has met for the first time Andrew Garfield - the man who's been playing Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man series. According to Holland, the fast meeting was "really, really nice. Andrew is a really lovely guy - everything I thought he would be. He is a brilliant actor too. I have »

Friendliest exes ever! As Emma Stone gears up for what could be her first Oscar win, the La La Land star has been attending lots of high-profile events. On Saturday, she ran into her ex-boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, at a BAFTA nominee party at Kensington Palace in London. Both are nominated at the 2017 Academy Awards as well as the BAFTA Awards, which will be handed out on Sunday.
Garfield, 33, walked the carpet alone in a Burberry peacoat.
Inside the event, the exes were photographed in a warm embrace as Garfield grinned. They first started dating after meeting on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2011 and later broke up in 2015.

The recent crop of hit Netflix shows aren’t the first time Marvel has taken its heroes to the small screen. Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Blade and even knock-off-ish X-Men have had a go before the current golden age. Here are all the Marvel shows you’ve seen and a few you might not have, ranked from goofiest pajama costumes to best character-driven dramas. 12. “The Amazing Spider-Man” (1977-79) A 1977 attempt at a live-action “Spider-Man” is a fun throwback — but in a purely ironic way because Peter Parker’s wall-crawling “special effects” are pretty cringe-worthy.

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
'They did not save her life. They stole it.' That's the tagline that accompanies the exciting new Ghost in the Shell TV trailer that will debut on the small screen this Sunday during the big game. Yes, it's Super Bowl time. And that means exciting new footage from some of the year's biggest and best movies. The excitement starts with Scarlett Johansson appearing on the roof of a very tall building only to take a giant leap of faith.
At first glance, Scarlett's Major Motoko Kusanagi appears to be stripping down to the flesh, which is sure to get a few blurry-eyed couch quarterbacks excited after a few too many Bud Lights. But upon closer inspection, we're looking at the body of a one of a kind human-cyborg hybrid. Not another Janet Jackson slip-up.

So far, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have released only a single official image from Spider-Man: Homecoming alongside an admittedly spectacular trailer. The marketing campaign will no doubt take off after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released this May, but in the meantime, some new promo art has now found its way online.
As you can see in the gallery above, the iconic superhero is striking some poses which will be instantly familiar to fans of the comic books. Sam Raimi’s trilogy recreated a few of those, but it was Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies which really made an effort to make it look like the source material was coming to life on the big screen. Just how much Spider-Man: Homecoming helmer Jon Watts will end up doing that is unclear, though it makes sense that the poses would be used in artwork like this. »

The Chicago Pd star, who’s presenting at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards on Sunday, caught up with E!’s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet, where the host brought up her strange connection to the Spiderman actor.
Garfield made headlines at the Golden Globes last month for his impromptu make-out session with Ryan Reynolds — but as Rancic reminded her, Bush also has a history of locking lips with the Deadpool star.
“That’s right!” said Bush, remembering she kissed Reynolds onscreen in 2002’s Van Wilder. »

Last month, Sony Pictures finally unveiled the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, which was widely well-received by fans and critics alike. Sony hasn't confirmed when the second trailer will be unveiled, but today we have a 'Weird Trailer' for the film, which brings back the first two actors to play the web-slinger, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While this trailer is essentially the same footage, there are a lot of bizarre items edited into this footage, including Minecraft characters, Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn, Batman, Kung Fu Panda and much more.
This weird trailer is just the latest in a series from YouTuber Aldo Jones, who debuted a weird trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy back in October. That trailer was given the "seal of approval" by director James Gunn, but as of now, it isn't clear if anyone involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming has seen and/or approved of this trailer. »
Image Source: Getty / Fotonoticias Former couple Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have already come face to face during a handful of events this award season, including the Critics' Choice Awards, the Golden Globes, and the AFI Awards luncheon, where they had a sweet reunion while dropping by each other's tables. The two have been able to maintain an amicable friendship since their breakup in October 2015, but their recent run-ins and cute quotes about each other have us feeling nostalgic about the way they were. Now that both Andrew and Emma are confirmed to attend the Oscars - Emma nabbed the best actress nomination for her role in La La Land while Andrew is up for best actor for his role in Hacksaw Ridge - we're hoping for another heartwarming moment to add to our list. Look back on the details of their offscreen romance. The Beginning Andrew and Emma met »

Looks like the Oscars next month will bring about the reconciliation of our dreams.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are nominated for Best Actress and Best Actor awards for their roles in La La Land and Hacksaw Ridge respectively, and it's clear there's still plenty of love between the exes. The two first started dating while filming The Amazing Spider-Man in 2011 -- and their chemistry onscreen is pretty apparent -- but split in 2015.
Since then, the two have made it known that they still have lots of mutual adoration and respect for one another -- so much so, that we can't help but root for a romantic rekindling. Stone and Garfield were spotted post-breakup going for a stroll together in the U.K. in August, both wearing big smiles.
In October, Stone admitted she still had feelings for 33-year-old Garfield. The actress »
Marvel has released a first look at The Clone Conspiracy #5, the final chapter of Dan Slott and Jim Cheung’s Spider-Man event series. In the recently released fourth instalment, the Jackal revealed his plan to turn everyone on Earth into a clone, a bizarre twist which will have to be addressed here before he returns to his heroic ways in his own solo series.
In the sneak peek below, the clones (and regular people) are transforming into Carrions – broken down, mutated versions of clones – before they “die” and are then brought back by Ben Reilly. This is a good way of removing all of the returning characters from the board, though you have to believe that at least a few will end up sticking around.
Thankfully, Uncle Ben won’t be among them, though it very much looks like Gwen Stacy might as she betrays Peter Parker. As you no doubt know, »

Whenever a new actor is cast as an iconic character, there will naturally be comparisons of the new actor, and those who have come before. Fans engaged in heated debates over which Batman was better, Christian Bale or Ben Affleck, and which Joker delivered the definitive performance, Jared Leto, Heath Ledger, or Jack Nicholson. These comparisons started sprouting up again when Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man, making his debut in last summer's Captain America: Civil War, leading into this summer's stand alone adventure Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland just threw some new fuel on this comparative fire, claiming that his Peter Parker could beat up those Peter Parker's who came before him, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
