Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel announced for July 2019, Bad Boys 4 moves to Memorial Day weekend

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony and Marvel Studios must feel pretty confident about the reception from last night’s trailer debuts for Spider-Man: Homecoming (both of which you can watch here), because a sequel has just been greenlit and given a release date. According to Deadline, Tom Holland’s version of the web slinger will swing back into theaters on July 5th, 2019 for the as-yet-untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming 2.

This has caused a release date shift for Bad Boys 4, which was slotted to arrive that same weekend. Instead, the studio has opted to open it on Memorial Day weekend, May 24, 2019. With Bad Boys 4 out of the way, the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will only be competing with an untitled Universal Illumination movie, though that’s subject to change since both films will likely target the same audience.

NBC’s Powerless set to premiere in February

9 December 2016 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The folks over at NBC have unveiled the station’s midseason schedule, which includes premiere dates for a number of brand new shows. Of the upcoming programs, however, one is sure to earn the top spot on comic book fans’ lists of their most anticipated shows: Powerless.

Powerless is a half-hour comedy set in the DC Universe that follows a group of normal office workers. Reportedly, the show will make its debut on the aforementioned network on February 2nd, 2017; it will air on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m., right after Superstore.

NBC screened the show’s pilot, written by Ben Queen and directed by Michael Patrick Jann, at San Diego Comic-Con back in July, and while it didn’t earn overwhelmingly positive reviews, critics did seem to enjoy it, generally agreeing that it’s an entertaining and good-hearted workplace comedy with a stellar ensemble.

The first trailer for the 16th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming, was just unveiled by Jimmy Kimmel and Tom Holland on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and is now available for everybody’s viewing pleasure on the web. See it here…

An international trailer, which features even more new footage, was also released by Marvel, so be sure to watch it below…

As previous reports suggested, Homecoming looks like a coming-of-age high school movie crossed with, of course, a superhero movie, and it couldn’t be a more promising combination. It’s hard for one’s Spidey senses not to tingle after watching these dynamite trailers, which show Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man interacting with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, taking down a group of Avengers mask-wearing bank robbers and staring lovingly at his crush with his best friend. Not to mention, Michael Keaton looks to »

8 December 2016 8:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Critics’ Choice Awards is just days away — and Bingworthy‘s Jessica Shaw is revealing who she thinks will win big.

When it comes to the award for best actress in a comedy series, Shaw’s pick is set in stone.

She wins every award and on some level it’s like, ‘Are you really saying she should win another award?’ Yes. Yes she should. She’s perfect.”

New Spider-Man: Homecoming image, Tom Holland talks Vulture

8 December 2016 6:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer tonight, Sony and Marvel has released a new image of Tom Holland as everyone’s favourite wall-crawler through USA Today. Holland also spoke about what fans can expect with the film’s story and its main villain Vulture, played by Michael Keaton.

Holland says Homecoming is “more a character piece about this kid who’s struggling to talk to girls and also struggling to save the city… This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article. He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes.”

Director Jon Watts also discussed Spider-Man’s character arc, stating that, “It’s fun to think that if Spider-Man is a regular kid who becomes a superhero, there’s got to be a bunch of regular guys who become supervillains, »

Daniella Bondar Dec 5, 2016

Amy Schumer is in early negotiations to star in Sony's live-action Barbie movie, it's been revealed...

According to reports, Amy Schumer is in talks to star in a live-action adaptation of Barbie for Sony Pictures. While the negotiations are early and nothing is confirmed, Variety states that the picture is quickly coming together. Intended to be in the same vein as movies like Enchanted and Big, the Barbie film will follow the main character as she navigates the new world of adventure after being kicked out of her home in Barbieland for not being perfect enough.

Currently, the idea and screenplay came from Hilary Winston (Community, My Name is Earl). However, according to Variety, if Schumer decides to star in the project, she and her sister and writing partner, Kim Caramele, will give the script a new draft.

Barbie has been iconic in pop culture since the »

Spider-Man gets underarm webbing in Spider-Man: Homecoming, new poster teased

2 December 2016 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Throughout Spider-Man’s live action adventures, there has always been one element from his costume that has been missing: the classic underarm webbing as seen in artist Steve Ditko’s designs of the first Spider-Man comics. That is about to change, though, as Marvel has revealed Spider-Man will get a suit upgrade that will include the underarm webbing in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This was announced in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Comic Con Experience 2016 where Marvel held a panel. Marvel’s own Vice President and Executive Director of Digital Media Ryan Penagos was in attendance and live tweeted the panel, describing a clip from Homecoming. The scene seems to take place from Spidey’s point of view as he’s talking with Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan and then Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark opens up a briefcase with an upgrade for the webslinger. The next scene shows Spider-Man leaping off »

Childish Gambino’s ‘Awaken, My Love!’: Stream ‘Atlanta’ Mastermind Donald Glover’s New Album

2 December 2016 7:36 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been quite the past couple of months for Donald Glover. The former “Community” star premiered his FX comedy “Atlanta” back in September to near universal acclaim, and by the time the series was wrapping up its 10-episode first season, critics were calling it one of the best shows of the year. IndieWire’s own Hanh Nguyen gave the season a perfect A score, saying, “Donald Glover intended to show what it feels to be black, and that journey was both joyous and necessarily upsetting.”

Great Job, Internet!: Dan Harmon’s universal theory of storytelling gets an animated explainer

30 November 2016 9:45 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Grand, unified artistic theories don’t get much grander and unified than Dan Harmon’s storytelling process. As detailed in an article on Wired some five years ago, Harmon boiled down Joseph Campbell’s monomyth of the hero’s journey into a simple circle. And once he grasped this storytelling principle he couldn’t stop seeing it: in plot arcs, in character arcs, in the arc of a single joke. The circle reappears over and over in Harmon’s work on Community and Rick And Morty—and also, according to the theory, everywhere else. And it’s not just in storytelling, but in pop music, sports fandom, and our everyday lives. The theory itself isn’t super complicated, but its applications are vast. Handily, the video essayist Will Schoder teases it out in an insightful new video.

The theory boils down to two sentences: 1) A character is in a ...

John Carpenter on Why He's Returning to Halloween

30 November 2016 8:47 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last December, another reboot of the Halloween franchise was canceled as Dimension Films lost the rights to this iconic horror property. After rumors of a new TV show surfaced, horror fans were treated to the surprising news that the original Halloween director John Carpenter was boarding the new remake as an executive producer, with producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse now controlling the franchise rights. We haven't heard a whole lot about the project since then, but today we have an update from John Carpenter himself, who reveals that the project doesn't have a script yet. Here's what he had to say about this new take on the classic Halloween.

"I've known Jason for a while, he came to me and said 'How do you feel about this now that rights have diverted?' and I said, 'Sure, why not? I'll give it a shot and I'll also try to support the director. »

Mike Gold: Patton Oswalt Really Is Everywhere!

29 November 2016 3:43 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Patton Oswalt is ubiquitous.

The comedian / actor / writer / producer has a list of credits longer than Reed Richards’ arm, and if I mention just some of the shows he’s been in (or voiced) that I enjoyed, you’ll understand why I think he’s tapped into my cable feed. But, in the interest of full disclosure, this personal list includes Justified, Agents of Shield, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Futurama, Burn Notice, Veep, Archer, and Static Shock. He’s co-starring in the newly revived Mystery Science Theater 3000 playing the latest newest member of the Forrester family. And he steals the spotlight in Foil, one of Weird Al Yankovic’s best videos.

If somebody semi-knowledgeable told me Oswalt is one of the guys in the Daleks cans, I’d probably believe ‘em.

He’s made no secret of his being a comic book fan – he pitched a “death of Superman” story »

Zendaya denies that she’s playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming

22 November 2016 9:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August, it was rumoured that Zendaya is portraying the iconic character of Mary Jane Watson in Marvel and Sony’s upcoming Spidey reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, and that her true identity would be a big reveal in the film.

The Disney Channel star has since suggested that she won’t be portraying a love-interest in the film, and now she has categorically denied the rumour, telling Et that: “I’m not Mary Jane unfortunately, but I am in the movie which is exciting. My character’s name is Michelle. If that’s what everybody wants to think, I’m gonna let people think whatever they want to think.”

Now, it’s entirely possible that Zendaya is misleading us in order to preserve the secrecy, but then again the original report came from El Mayimbe, who is a notorious fibber, so… I guess we won’t know for sure until July. »

‘When We Rise’ Trailer: Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black Reunite for Lgbtq Miniseries Starring Guy Pearce

21 November 2016 11:10 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Gus Van Sant’s last few movies haven’t been met with especially warm receptions: “Sea of Trees” was perhaps the most derided film to premiere at Cannes last year, and neither “Promised Land” nor “Restless” fared especially well either. For his next effort, he’s moving to the small screen with “When We Rise,” a docudrama miniseries coming to ABC next year. Watch its first trailer below.

Van Sant will direct the first two hours of the seven-part series, with Dee Rees, Thomas Schlamme and Dustin Lance Black (who also wrote and created) also onboard as directors. “When We Rise” begins in 1971, just two years after the Stonewall riots — whose most recent cinematic depiction came courtesy of Roland Emmerich and wasn’t any more well received than “Sea of Trees” — and continues from there. »

First Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer may be attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

18 November 2016 12:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Peter Parker’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has a long way to go before it hits theaters, Marvel Studios will reportedly be releasing footage from the film in about a month’s time. According to Comicbook.com, the very first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming is attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set to make its theatrical bow on Friday, December 16th.

Supposedly, the news comes from unnamed sources close to the production, so while it would make perfect sense for Marvel to debut the trailer alongside what will probably be one of the biggest movies of 2016, nothing is official yet. If the report is true, however, then fans will be getting a trailer for the latest Spider-Man reboot much sooner than expected.

Usually, when a major release attaches its trailer to another major release, the footage actually lands online a »
