Deadpool 2 Director Addresses Possible Spider-Man Connection

28 July 2017 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Debuting along with the release of Logan back in March, the first promo for Deadpool 2 was a hilarious skit that saw the Merc with the Mouth totally fail to play the hero and save an old man from being shot down by a mugger. But was there more to the scene than we first thought?

A popular fan theory states that this old guy was actually Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben, as the incident kind of mirrors the death of Spidey’s ill-fated uncle in most versions of the story. Obviously, this wouldn’t be a tie-in to Spider-Man: Homecoming, due to the fact that the cinematic universes of Marvel Studios and Fox have nothing to do with each other, but many thought it was a blackly humorous nod to another Marvel comics superhero. After all, Deadpool and Spider-Man often crossover on the page, so this theory does have legs. »

Marvel’s The Defenders Social Media Account Hints At Spider-Man Connection

19 July 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As all Marvel fans know, everything within the Marvel Cinematic Universe is connected. The events of The Avengers totally take place in the same universe as, say, Daredevil. However, those on the big and small screens rarely reference each other – save a nod to “the green dude” or something in Jessica Jones. The official Facebook page for The Defenders, though, might have given us our first explicit connection between Spider-Man and New York’s street-wise heroes.

First, the social media account – that’s written from the point of view of the quartet of Netflix heroes – posted some links from the promotional tie-in website for the New York Bulletin, the newspaper featured in Daredevil. The page captioned it: “This city’s going to hell. #FakeNews.”

New Video For Insomniac’s Spider-Man Provides An Inside Look At Story, Setting, More

17 July 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony’s unveiling of the first extended gameplay for Insomniac’s Spider-Man back in June saved what was an otherwise unremarkable showing for the PlayStation 4 at this year’s E3. Even taking into account that new footage for other exclusives like Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and zombie survivor Days Gone squeezed cheers out of the audience, it was Marvel’s iconic web-slinger that stole the show.

The spandex-clad superhero swinging into view was a definite highlight of not just Sony’s show, but the entirety of E3, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting more details for Peter Parker’s next video game adventure ever since. Thankfully, Insomniac has seemingly heard our prayers, as a newly released featurette gives us just that.

Spider-Man art director Jacinda Chew and creative director Bryan Intihar are on-hand in the video to talk about their experiences with creating a believable world for Parker and his superpowered alter-ego, »

Spider-man: Homecoming – Review

6 July 2017 10:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Okay fantasy film fans, here’s a quick memory quiz for you (if you’re well past twenty). You recall what you were doing on that first weekend of May fifteen years ago (can’t be that long ago)? There’s a very good chance that you were making movie history by smashing the existing three-day box office total for a new film. Its title? Why the biggest film of 2002, Sony Pictures’ Spider-man directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire. For fans of superhero cinema, that year has the same importance as 1978 (Superman The Movie directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve) and 1989 (Batman directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton…more about him soon). Sure, Superman and Batman had been the subject of low-budget movie serials, a story shown in weekly installments, usually a staple of “kiddie” matinees until the mid 1950’s. The Dark Knight had »

Spider-Man: Homecoming - 13 spoilery questions answered

4 July 2017 10:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Hunt Jul 5, 2017

We take a look at the questions that Spider-Man: Homecoming leaves behind...

Spider-Man: Homecoming has firmly established the webslinger’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a fresh take on Peter Parker and his supporting cast. But like any comic book movie, you might still have questions – about who characters are, about whether there were easter eggs you missed, and about what happened. Here, we’ll do our best to clear things up for you.

Spoilers for the entire film follow right after the return of the spoiler squirrel...

What’s Damage Control?

In the McU, as in the comics, Damage Control is an entity that exists specifically to clear up the mess made by superhero battles. Created by Dwayne McDuffie and Ernie Colon in 1988, the company was originally co-owned by Tony Stark and Wilson Fisk, who were the two largest shareholders. It was run, as in the films, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming review: Dir. Jon Watts (2017)

Spider-Man Homecoming review: It’s reboot time for Spidey as Sony team up with the superheroes over at Marvel for the first stand-alone for the webbed wonder in the McU.

Spider-Man Homecoming review by Paul Heath.

Spider-Man Homecoming review

For many, Spider-Man is the most beloved and cherished amongst all of the Marvel characters. With no less than five movies produced in the last 15 years alone, excluding this new attempt, Hollywood has tried and indeed tried again to get it right. While Sam Raimi’s first two outings are lauded amongst the movie community, every one since has fallen way short of expectation.

So here comes reboot number three, Spider-Man: Homecoming – only this time movie license holders Sony have teamed with Marvel Studios for a film set in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe – choosing to sidestep an original story (thank heavens) and focus on Peter Parker at the age of »

Best Movies to See in July: Spider-Man, Charlize Theron Kicking Ass and More

30 June 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

We're only at the year's halfway mark, but July is quickly shaping up to be the best moviegoing month of 2017: There are blockbusters lighthearted (Spidey's back yet again, and Sony swears they've cracked the formula this time) and solemn (Chris Nolan goes to war with Harry Styles in tow). Do you like your sci-fi weird (monkey in a tank!) or extra-weird (sentient brains!)? Indie types can check out an urgent new doc on Syria, a groundbreaking Yiddish-language drama or a British period piece-cum-feminist revenge thriller metaphysical drama. See, there »

Newswire: Hannibal Buress sent an impostor to the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere

28 June 2017 9:39 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hannibal Buress just initiated a little Clone Saga of his own, with the stand-up comic and Broad City co-star apparently sending a stand-in to walk the red carpet at the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere tonight. Per Entertainment Weekly, Buress put out the call for a lookalike on social media earlier tonight, recruiting actor Joe Caroll to serve as his proxy at the big event.

Buress—who appears in the film as Peter Parker’s gym coach, Coach Wilson—apparently offered Caroll $500 (and the chance to stand somewhat near Robert Downey Jr.) in order to serve as his doppelganger. Sony has yet to comment on the switcheroo. Marvel, meanwhile, quickly excised the “Buress” portion of »

Spider-Man/Deadpool Vol. 2: Side Pieces Review

20 June 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based off a volume that collects Spider-Man/Deadpool #6-7, 11-12 and 1.Mu.

As enjoyable as books chronicling the adventures of the Justice League or Avengers may be, they often don’t get to explore the interpersonal relationships shared between specific superheroes as often as we’d like. But, when you pare it down to two, you’re given a much different kind of team-up comic. Personally, I enjoy seeing the best buddy dynamic offered whenever Batman and Superman join forces or, likewise, whenever the Flash and Green Lantern go back to back. On the other hand, I also get a kick out of the veritable powder keg that is Daredevil and Punisher.

The focus of today’s review, though, Spider-Man/Deadpool, may be in a class of its own. You’ve got a do-gooder in Peter Parker and a mercenary in Wade Wilson, so, logically, they shouldn’t get along. »

7 June 2017 | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

George and Amal Clooney have officially joined the celebrities-with-twins club!

The adorable duo, who tied the knot in September 2014, welcomed their first children, a boy, Alexander, and a girl, Ella, on Tuesday. "I don't know how you fully digest [having two], but I'm excited," the first-time father told Et back in March. "It will be fun."

The next A-lister set to give birth to twins is Beyoncé. Her and husband Jay Z announced via Instagram in February that Blue Ivy would soon be a big sister to not one, but two bundles of joy. "We have been blessed two times over," the "Formation" singer said at the time.

In honor of these summer births, Et's looking back at other celebrities who've welcomed twins!

X-Men producer on what Cable will bring to the franchise

2 June 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next year will see a major addition to the X-Men movie franchise as Josh Brolin takes on the role of Nathan Summers, a.k.a. Cable, in the hotly-anticipated sequel Deadpool 2, and speaking to Screen Rant, producer Hutch Parker has discussed the introduction of the time-travelling mutant, and what he will bring to the table for the series going forward.

“It just opens a whole series of doors,” said Parker. “I think that was part of what was so exciting of adding him to the mix is, not only what he brings as a character – and I think what I think Brolin will bring to the part, which I think was just brilliant casting – but it expands the landscape again and gives us more flexibility and opportunity which is one of the ways we can keep this franchise feeling vibrant and exciting and fresh – by introducing elements that are exciting and dynamic and different. »

The Addition Of Cable Will Have A Profound Impact On Deadpool 2 And Beyond, According To X-Men Producer

1 June 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cable and Domino are, without question, the two headline-worthy additions to David Leitch’s anti-hero sequel, Deadpool 2, and the former in particular has generated a metric ton of buzz among the comic book community ever since the Merc With a Mouth first teased the advent of Wade Wilson’s long-time nemesis last year.

In typically flippant fashion, Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed protagonist rhymed off a series of big names including Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, and, er, Keira Knightley. But it turns out the Powers That Be have selected Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) to play the time-travelling mercenary known as Nathan Summers. Brolin beat out a whole host of actors to land the coveted gig, too, after reports claimed that Pierce Brosnan and Stephen Lang were both in contention at one point or another.

Alas, now that Fox and director David Leitch have made their decision, fans can now begin »

Sierra/Affinity Goes Beyond Sales With Movies Like ‘Atomic Blonde’

18 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Producing and financing films, rather than just taking a fee to sell them, has always been an important part of Sierra/Affinity’s blueprint since the company launched in 2009. Nevertheless, it took several years for the company’s ambitions beyond sales to be fully realized.

The company has produced and financed several titles over the past couple of years and is pushing hard in that direction. As company founder Nick Meyer, who is being honored at Cannes with Variety‘s Achievement in International Film Award, sees it, “a key part of our growth as a company is that we are a production entity.”

Set for release this July via Focus Features is “Atomic Blonde,” the graphic-novel adaptation starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy. Recent titles also produced and financed by Sierra include the critically hailed “Lost City of Z” by director James Gray, 1960s melodrama “A Kind of Murder,” John Hillcoat »

Film Review: ‘The Fate of the Furious’

9 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If there were a hierarchy of action cinema, you’d find a masterpiece of speed-demon nihilism like “Mad Max: Fury Road” at the very top, and on the next level a superior Bond or Bourne film or “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” At the bottom would be the visceral, live-wire kicks of B-movie brutality. Somewhere in the middle are the “Fast and the Furious” films, which started off as drag-race movies but morphed, over time, into an outlandishly extravagant genre all their own, one with just enough heart — and, yes, mind — to make the stunts and velocity seem like something larger: a pure expression of character. If this series, over the last 16 years, has taught us anything, it’s that just when you think it’s about to run out of gas, it gets outfitted with an even more elaborate fuel-injection system. And that’s never been more true than it »

‘Fate of the Furious’: ‘The Game Has Changed’ in New Trailer

9 March 2017 12:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“This crew’s about family, but the game has changed now.”

Those are the last words Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs says before his friend-turned-foe Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and mysterious manipulator Cipher (Charlize Theron) blow out a wall in the family’s office in the latest trailer for “The Fate of the Furious.”

The eighth installment pits Dom against his allies and wife (Michelle Rodriguez), as he’s coerced into a life of crime by Cipher after the crew retired and was exonerated in the previous film. As seen in the trailer, Dom says he’s “got not choice” but to help Cipher enact mass “high-tech terrorism” against New Yorkers.

Cars go flying, self-driving out of buildings and into other vehicles, controlled by Cipher in a plot to unleash total chaos. The trailer is action-packed, showing Hobbs diverting a torpedo in the »
