Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse villains and Peter Parker casting revealed

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man makes his return to the big screen today in Avengers: Infinity War, but it isn’t the only Spidey movie we have to look forward to this year as Sony unleashes its animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

During Sony’s presentation at CinemaCon this week, it was revealed that the movie will feature three villains – The Prowler, The Kingpin, and Ultimate Green Goblin.

The Prowler is being voiced by Mahershala Ali, while Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is also confirmed to be voicing one of the villains, although it’s unclear whether it will be Kingpin or the Goblin.

Meanwhile, in one other piece of news, New Girl and Jurassic World star Jake Johnson is set to lend his voice to a middle-aged Peter Parker.

All 50 Marvel Movies Ranked, Including ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

With over 30 years of theatrically released Marvel movies, it’s always a good a time to rank ‘em all, from “Howard the Duck” to the this year’s very personal “Logan,” and the Marvel team-up to end all Marvel team ups, “Avengers: Infinity War

50. “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”

It’s just a nightmare. A total nightmare. There have been a bunch of bad superhero movies, but this one transcends bad.

49. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine

A totally chaotic stir fry of nonsense that tells the story of how Wolverine got his claws. Features a version of Deadpool that has his mouth stapled shut, which should tell you all you need to know about it.

48. “Elektra

That five minutes where they tried to turn Jennifer Garner into an action star really didn’t work out well, huh.

47. “X-Men: The Last Stand

Just a total mess, incoherent from the word “go.” Might have killed off the superhero genre were “Spider-Man” not blowing up the box office.

46. “Fantastic Four” (2015)

There could maybe be a good movie in here somewhere. The cast (Michael B Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara) certainly would warrant one. But this Frankenstein of a film is a behind-the-scenes horror story and you can see it all through the totally disjointed final product.

45. “Iron Man 2

Swaps Terrence Howard for Don Cheadle, and Mickey Rourke is breaking cars with laser whips. I don’t know that anybody knows what was going on in this movie but it was almost Ok anyway

44. “Fantastic Four” (2005)

Tim Story‘s first “Fantastic Four” was not good, but in a very mundane sort of way. It’s just sort of there, challenging you to remember it exists. With Chris Evans, who played the Human Torch here, going on to embody Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that gets tougher every year.

43. “Fantastic Four” (2005)

Tim Story‘s first “Fantastic Four” was not good, but in a very mundane sort of way. It’s just sort of there, challenging you to remember it exists. With Chris Evans, who played the Human Torch here, going on to embody Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that gets tougher every year.

42. “Daredevil

This was basically Early-00s: The Movie, with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Colin Farrell and Michael Clark Duncan as the main players. The cherry on top was that damn Evanescence song.

41. “The Punisher” (2004)

This is the Punisher as a straight revenge thriller, and it’s Ok. Thomas Jane performs admirably, but the whole thing is missing that extra something that could elevate it beyond standard genre fare.

40. “Spider-Man 3

Maybe the bad outweighs the good here, but I will never fall out of love with Emo Peter Parker’s dance number, one of the greatest single moments in any comic book movie.

16. “Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

An improvement on the first film, and an absolute delight from moment to moment — but it never quite coalesces into a coherent whole because so many subplots distract from the core story and rob it of its emotional impact. Would be a top 5 comic book movie if it had just reigned in the plot.

9. “Spider-Man: Homecoming

Not quite the best “Spider-Man” movie, but still an absolute delight, with a cast full of scene stealers. Michael Keaton as the Vulture makes for one of the best Marvel villains ever.

8. “Thor: Ragnarok

A thorough delight, but a movie this silly can’t help but have some issues with abrupt tonal shifts. Even so, this might be the most fun we’ve had at the movies in all of 2017, and so we can’t help but love it.

7. “Doctor Strange

If it weren’t hamstrung with all the requisite elements of an origin story, “Doctor Strange” might have been the best Marvel movie ever. That’s the power of the astonishing visual imagination on display here. People love to talk about the nebulous concept of capturing some long lost childlike sense of wonder though the magic of cinema — “Doctor Strange” is one of the only movies I’ve watched as an adult that really accomplishes that.

3. “Black Panther

It’s held back a little by being saddled with standard “origin movie” issues — introducing audiences to the world of Wakanda isn’t a quick and easy task, and it could use an extra 15-20 minutes to flesh out the supporting characters — but still manages to be the most substantial superhero movie ever. It’s kind of amazing that Disney let writer/director Ryan Coogler make this overt a political statement — it’s the most openly political mega-budget movie I’ve ever seen . Also, while I’m listing superlatives: Michael B Jordan delivers the best performance ever in a superhero movie. Good lord.

1. “Logan

James Mangold’s small-scale western is a game changer for the entire superhero genre, daring to defy pretty much standard by which you expect these movies to operate. It’s just a great movie by any normal standard. Where “Civil War” elevated the genre, “Logan” opts instead to be something else entirely and we’re all the better for it.

Subtle X-Men Origins: Wolverine Nod Spotted In New Deadpool 2 Trailer

One of Deadpool‘s strongest superpowers is his ability to regenerate from practically any injury. But even Wade Wilson struggled to recover from what was done to him in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine – in which they took the Merc with a Mouth, famed for his wisecracks and jokes and uh, sealed up his mouth.

It was like putting Spider-Man in your film and amputating his arms, or giving Bruce Banner a heavyweight dose of valium. Unsurprisingly, Deadpool went out of its way to poke fun at the character’s shoddy treatment in that movie and it’s looking like the sequel is going to be no different.

That said, this new Easter Egg, found in the latest trailer, required eagle eyes to spot, so full credit to the aptly named @4EyedRaven on Twitter for being able to pick it out:

Deadpool 2’s Final Trailer Makes Origins: Wolverine And Logan Jokes

The final trailer for Deadpool 2 is out and it’s an absolute laugh-riot, with jokes riffing on both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Logan. The Merc With A Mouth has never taken himself particularly seriously, and in this trailer he throws shade at the entire superhero genre. Deadpool cracks wise about the McU and the Dceu, even name-dropping Thanos.

But Fox aren’t above laughing at themselves, either; the trailer features shout-outs to both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and <a href="https://screenrant.

Final Deadpool 2 Trailer Reveals the Most Important Member of X-Force

The final trailer for Deadpool 2 has been released, further teasing what to expect from The Merc With a Mouth’s sequel. Ryan Reynolds made his screen debut as Wade Wilson in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and spent the years after relentlessly campaigning for the character to get his own solo film. Seven years and some leaked test footage later, Deadpool finally happened and became a massive critical/financial success for Fox, thanks in no small amount to both Reynolds’ performance and his unique approach to building hype for the R-rated superhero action-comedy.

Deadpool 2’s Next Marketing Ploy is Coloring Book Pages

Deadpool was an instant success as soon we found out that Ryan Reynolds was reprising his role from his appearance in the 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine flop. We had high hopes for Deadpool then, and when the film was released, we were all relieved to finally see a superhero film that actually had some guts. The action was great; the storyline was good; the comedy was even greater. Deadpool was entertaining to say the least, and we only expect more of the same—if not better—out of the second installment of the Deadpool franchise. Reynolds will be reprising his role for

Ryan Reynolds to receive first screenwriting credit on Deadpool 2

Ryan Reynolds returns to the big screen this May as he reprises his fan favourite role as Wade Wilson in 20th Century Fox’s hotly-anticipated superhero sequel Deadpool 2.

Not only will this see Reynolds making his third appearance as the Merc with a Mouth (apologies to those who’d managed to forget X-Men Origins: Wolverine), but as The Wrap reports, it will also see the actor receiving his first screenwriting credit.

According to Fox’s official credits for the movie, Reynolds is listed as a co-writer alongside Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. As with the first movie, Reynolds also serves as producer – a role he’s also fulfilling on Fox’s planned follow-up X-Force, which is slated to begin production in October under director Drew Goddard.

Ryan Reynolds Officially Nabs Writing Credit On Deadpool 2

Few actors have displayed as much commitment to a character as Ryan Reynolds has for Deadpool. He lobbied for the part in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, only for the film to catastrophically miss the point by removing the mouth from, er, the Merc with a Mouth. After that critical flop, it seemed like the fan favorite might be dead in the water, but then Reynolds teamed up with Tim Miller to finance some test footage to show the studio what a solo movie for the character could be like – which was subsequently leaked to salivating fans. From there, the rest is history.

Deadpool was greenlit and on its release exceeded all box office projections to become a bona fide cultural phenomenon. And now, in just two months, we’ll get to see Deadpool 2. Reynolds has smartly brought along the first film’s writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen the script,

Wonder Woman was the most profitable superhero movie of 2017, and most profitable Dceu film to date

Warner Bros. scored a rare win for the DC Extended Universe last year with Wonder Woman. Not only did it win over fans and critics alike, but it also went on to gross $822 million around the globe.

While this was less than Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880.2 million) and second to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($872.7 million) in terms of the Dceu, Deadline is reporting that Wonder Woman was the most profitable superhero movie of 2017, and the most profitable instalment of the Dceu to date.

As reported by the trade, Warner Bros. pocketed $372.9 million on Wonder Woman’s theatrical receipts, with a further $282.2 million in home entertainment sales and TV deals, giving the studio a total income of $659.10 million.

Deduct from that a production budget of $149 million, marketing costs of $158 million, $59.7 million in fees to the producers and actors, and $39.5 million for the home entertainment release, the total

Deadpool 2: Ryan Reynolds Officially Credited As Co-Writer

Ryan Reynolds is adding co-writer to his list of credits on Deadpool 2. The Deadpool films have undoubtedly been a labor of love for Reynolds, especially as he tried to right the ship for the character or Wade Wilson and his crime-fighting alter-ego following its underwhelming debut in the critical-and fan-maligned debut in the 2009 X-Men spinoff X-Men Origins: Wolverine. His passion as an actor and producer ultimately paid off big in 2016, when his proper, R-rated version of Deadpool earned $363 million domestically and $420 million internationally for an astounding global take of $783 million.

Lynda Carter on Wonder Woman being snubbed at the Oscars, open to appearing in the sequel

Despite being nominated by the Producers Guild of America at the 2018 PGA Awards, Warner Bros.DC blockbuster Wonder Woman not only found itself missing out on a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards, but was also shut out entirely at the Oscars – something that left TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter feeling very disappointed.

“I’m very close to Patty, and I think Gal Gadot did a wonderful job,” Carter told The Daily Beast. “I was really happy to see they showed a clip of the film during the Oscars, even though they didn’t nominate it for anything. Anything. It should have been nominated. They were left out of special effects, writing, everything. Patty did an amazing job. The essence of the character is not an easy one to find the right balance of. Patty got it.”

Deadpool Gets His Own Adult Party Game

Marvel is expanding into adult party games, as Deadpool Vs The World will merge Cards Against Humanity with the Regeneratin’ Degenerate. Since his debut in 1991, Deadpool has been a big hit for Marvel comics. The fourth-wall breaking mercenary spent years with a cult following before finally making the jump to the big screen in the much-maligned X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but 2016’s Deadpool gave him a more proper spotlight. Already headlining multiple comics for Marvel, the film’s success has seen merchandising and name recognition for the Merc with a Mouth explode. And like the character himself, it’s led to some interesting developments.

Liev Schreiber talks Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie

Following Peter Parker’s exploits in Marvel StudiosAvengers: Infinity War, Sony will be passing the baton to Miles Morales later this year for the animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film will see X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Liev Schreiber making his return to the Marvel universe as he lends his voice to the film’s as-yet-unrevealed villain, and speaking to Collider, Schreiber has been hyping the project and its animators.

“It was actually the animation team,” said Schreiber when asked what drew him to the project. “The guys who are working on it, I saw their work and said, ‘Wow! These guys are special.’ And it is. It’s going to be pretty special, from what I’ve seen so far. And I haven’t seen much, but it’s pretty special. They’re super-talented. … That’s what I love about it. But it also is anamorphic … ohh

Cable Gets Revenge On Deadpool For This Week’s Troll

Last week, Ryan Reynolds and 20th Century Fox served up a dose of premium Cable with the first full-blown (and profanity-filled!) trailer for Deadpool 2.

And though the Merc With a Mouth threatened to hog the limelight with his makeshift toy show, Fox’s preview was really all about Cable (Aka Nathan Summers), the one-eyed bandit who will be making his screen debut alongside fellow mutant, Domino (Zazie Beetz), later this year.

But the fun didn’t stop there, as Reynolds took to Instagram a few days ago to share a cheeky and indeed nostalgic portrait drawn up by Wade Wilson himself in honor of Brolin’s birthday. It was a typically irreverent image from ‘Pool, who harked back to Brolin’s days on The Goonies. And while it was all in good fun, one clever fan has now managed to turn the tables on the Merc, allowing Cable to take some sweet revenge.

Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks, arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents.
