Feast your eyes on a brand new, absolutely perfect poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming! The first trailer for Tom Holland's initial solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe debuted back in December, so it stands to reason that a new trailer should be coming very soon. But for now, Marvel has released this first poster, which features Peter Parker hanging out in his Spidey costume. But with a little bit of extra flair.
The poster was shared today by the official Spider-Man: HomecomingTwitter account. In the poster, we see Spider-Man laying by the river with his headphones on, seemingly drifting away in thought. In addition to having on his new Spider-man costume (courtesy of Tony Stark), he also appears to have on a school jacket of some kind, pointing to the struggle of him trying to balance his life as a teenager and his life as a superhero.

On the news that Warners is developing a "Gotham City Sirens" feature, to be directed by David Ayer, comes news that Sony wants to get into the female superhero/anti-hero game, with plans to greenlight a "Black Cat and Silver Sable" feature, spinning off from Marvel's "Spider-Man":
The 'Black Cat' aka 'Felicia Hardy', was created for Marvel Comics by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator Keith Pollard, debuting in Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man" #194 (July 1979), as the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar.
After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat.
Felicia Hardy also appeared in Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »

We are months away from Sony's highly anticipated reboot of the Spider-Man franchise when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7th, 2017. Last week we were all surprised to hear that another character from the Spiderverse, Venom was going to get his own film presumably to be released in October of 2018. Today we yet another development for two more characters from the Spiderverse that are going to get their own film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is in development for another film that will feature the female characters Black Cat and Sable. The script is being worked on by Chris Yost, who is no stranger to comic book films as he has just finished working on the upcoming Marvel film Thor: Ragnarok. Apparently this has been in the works for a while now, only being known as a "secret female spin off project". The film will be produced by Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal, »

Last week, Sony Pictures handed out a 2018 release date for their new Venom spin-off that will expand the studio's Spider-Man universe, although it will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Today we have word that the studio is expanding this universe even further, developing a new spin-off that will feature the popular female characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat. The studio has brought on screenwriter Christopher Yost to write the script, building on a previous script that was originally worked on by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy.
The Hollywood Reporter doesn't reveal any specific story details, but it does indicate that the studio wants to find a director soon, eyeing a fall production start date. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing the project, which was previously known as the "secret female spinoff project." While Sony Pictures has a shared rights deal with Marvel Studios for the main Spider-Man character, »

As with the revelation last week that a Venom spinoff was back on at Sony Pictures, the studio is still making the best of their Spider-Man license, as it was revealed late Wednesday that a Black Cat and Silver Sable spinoff from the web-head franchise was being turned into a priority by the studio.
Previously, it was unclear how far Sony came in pursuing a Black Cat movie, but now the answer indicates… pretty darn close. Indeed, THR broke that Sony has tapped Christopher Yost to rewrite a previous existing script for the project. Furthermore, the script he is reworking is one turned in by Lisa Joy, who recently co-created a little genre show you might have heard about: Westworld.
This project has apparently been long in the works, »
Not content with extending its Spider-Man universe with a Venom movie, Sony is reportedly dusting off another long-gestating spinoff, with THR reporting that the studio is officially moving forward with a Black Cat and Silver Sable spinoff.
The project was first announced as a spinoff from The Amazing Spider-Man back in 2014, and the studio has now tapped Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) to rewrite the original script from Lisa Joy (Westworld). As with Venom, Matt Rolmach and Amy Pascal are producing the film, while Marvel Studios will seemingly not be involved.
The site reveals that both the Venom and the Black Cat / Silver Sable movie “are not offshoots from the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming but rather projects spun from the overall franchise and based on Sony’s Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.”
Given that they won’t be tied to Homecoming, it begs the question whether both movies will take place in the same universe as each other, »

As TV continues to catch up, and in some cases surpass, cinema in terms of production values, action sequences and story lines, the race has not stayed confined to Hollywood. Brazilian broadcasters Globo represent perhaps the best positioned company to do just that in Latin America. With an overwhelming free-to-air market share, muscular resources, historic studios and large production expertise, the company is also innovating in a format where it has few rivals, the high-end telenovela.
A case in point: Colonial era epic “Novo Mundo.” Two centuries ago, the Austrian Archduchess Leopoldina was dispatched by her Hapsburg Holy Roman Emperor father to Rio de Janeiro to marry the man who would become Brazil’s first Emperor, Dom Pedro. The Duchess was loved: Dom Pedro sided with Brazil’s liberals, wrenching independence from the Portuguese crown in 1822. The novela focuses heavily on Leopoldina’s sea journey to her new kingdom, the »

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. 13. “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. Watching Spider-Man fight guys using extremely hokey choreography. »

Hot of the press from Sony Pictures headquarters, and quite frankly completely unexpected, comes the news that finally, after being announced over a year ago, the Venom movie is set for an October 5th 2018 release date, filling the slot nicely that James Wan’s Aquaman has just vacated.
Rumours are currently flying as to who the director may be, and The Mummy and The Amazing Spider-Man director, Alex Kurtzman, looks to be in the lead especially after being announced by box office data providers Exhibitor Relations Co But this is yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Sony has been banking on this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” their co-production with Marvel, on being a big smash hit, and something that will kick off a Spidey-verse of movies, in a way that “The Amazing Spider-Man” film didn’t. We’re yet to see what those plans will be beyond just straight sequels to ‘Homecoming,’ but Sony has something else up its sleeve.
The studio has announced that “Venom” will hit theaters on October 5, 2018.

In the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Iron Man could be seen sporting the same armour he wore in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Whether that was a placeholder or just something specifically chosen for those scenes is unclear, but an action figure has since revealed that Tony Stark will also boast a brand new suit which bears a striking resemblance to the Ultimate line of Marvel comic books. Now, another set of toys has been revealed which offers up a fresh look at the armour along with some Spider-Man: Homecoming promotional artwork of the wall-crawler, Iron Man and the Vulture, all of whom we’ll no doubt see plenty more of over the next few months.
Iron Man getting a new suit for each of his respective big screen appearances has become commonplace, mostly because it means Marvel can sell a whole new batch of action figures »

Although the next full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t be released until tomorrow night, that doesn’t mean there isn’t much to talk about in the meantime.
By now, you’re no doubt aware that the film will see some new additions, as is expected of sequels, in the form of Mantis and Ego. What none of us were prepared for, however, was the possibility of Darkhawk being included. Needless to say, such an appearance would be especially baffling when you take into account that he’s normally not thought of as being associated with the featured characters, although he does have some history with the Nova Corps.
As for how we know this, well, the time honored tradition of toy lines spoiling things lives on. Not long ago, the DC Multiverse line gave us our first full look at Wonder Woman villain Ares, »

As Emma Stone stood onstage at the Dolby Theatre accepting her Best Actress award at the Oscars on Sunday, she might think back to where it all started: A ninth grade history class in Scottsdale, Arizona.
That’s where Stone, 14 at the time, decided she was dropping out of school and moving to L.A. to become a star. “I had this Howard Beale-like moment,” she told The Hollywood Reporter about her realization, citing Peter Finch’s character’s iconic meltdown in Network. “It’s the last period of the day, and I have a revelation that I needed to »

Chris Evans has left behind the tight lycra suit of Captain America and gone all soft as he takes on the role as a single man raising his child prodigy niece in the upcoming Gifted, and we have the new trailer which is bound to have the ladies melting into a pile of quivering mess.
As with many films with young actors, the trailer shows McKenna Grace as a lovable ‘smart ass’ kid who promises to outshine her much older co-stars on a picture which is due to tug on the heart strings whilst dousing you with a much needed gentle humour.
No stranger to a film which, let’s face it, is directed at a more fairer audience than those who adore his Marvel comic book superhero, Chris Evans has starred in some rather dubious “chick flicks »

Emma Stone’s makeup artist has no concept of time, but that’s probably a good thing — as it’s 10:30 p.m. when the artist picks up my call. With her longtime client at an event for La La Land, Rachel Goodwin finds a quiet spot in a Paris hotel to talk. She’s been on the road for days, and has a cold — but neither that or the hour dampen her mood. Goodwin is game to talk about makeup any time. And after an illustrious 24-year career in the industry, she still speaks about it with a level of drive, »

"...'Peter Parker' is just your average, nerdy, tech-loving teenager, until an unexpected turn of events lands him with the power to cling to walls with the proportionate strength of a spider.
"...which sees a rift between 'Captain America' and 'Iron Man' rend a schism between the 'Avengers', with 'Spidey' in the middle of it all..."

During The Clone Conspiracy, we learned that Ben Reilly cloned his creator Miles Warren/the Jackal as a way of punishing him for every evil deed he’s committed over the years. After all, how better to make him suffer than leaving the villain to doubt whether or not he’s actually real? Well, in today’s The Amazing Spider-Man #24, the unleashed Carrion virus left the real Miles still standing and he then set out to get revenge on Ben.
This led to a confrontation between the two which saw the Jackal destroy all of Ben’s cash and passports, effectively stopping him from being able to go and start a new life. After a brutal confrontation between the two, the former Scarlet Spider (who will soon return to that role in a new series) decided to murder his creator, setting him on a path very different to Peter Parker. »

Film marketing veteran Tommy Gargotta, most recently head of marketing for the Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution venture, has joined the Fox broadcast network in a senior marketing post.
Gargotta will serve as exec VP of creative marketing, reporting to Fox chief marketing officer Angela Courtin. Courtin joined Fox from Relativity nearly two years ago.
Gargotta will oversee the on-air promotion and design departments for Fox, extending beyond the network to print, digital and outdoor venues. He’s taking on a newly created position.

Gargotta was named president of theatrical marketing for Relativity EuropaCorp in March 2015. That entity is essentially defunct given Relativity’s dire straits. In »

When Tom Holland starred in Captain America: Civil War last summer, he became the third actor in 14 years to play Spider-Man, following in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Shortly after Civil War hit theaters, Tobey Maguire revealed on social media that he was impressed, adding that Tom Holland is "great" as Spider-Man. Shortly after he was cast, Andrew Garfield had nothing but positive things to say about Tom Holland in an interview, but now both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield have finally met in person, and we have some photos and videos to prove it.
During the BAFTA Awards, a number of fans posted videos and photos to Twitter, showcasing both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield meeting in person, which, as it turns out, was the first time both of them had met. After the BAFTA Awards, where Tom Holland received the Rising Star Award this year, »
