Spider-Man’s Tom Holland Would Bring Tony Stark Back To Life Over Uncle Ben

Spider-Man’s Tom Holland Would Bring Tony Stark Back To Life Over Uncle Ben
The McU version of Spider-Man has deliberately been portrayed in a different way from how he was in Sony’s movies in order to avoid showing audiences the same old thing. This means that while Peter Parker must’ve lost his Uncle Ben as part of his origin story like always, the teen hero’s surrogate father has never even had his name said aloud in the franchise. As we all know though, the other surrogate father Peter has had in the McU is Tony Stark/Iron Man.

However, Tony tragically met the same fate as Uncle Ben in Avengers: Endgame, when the Armored Avenger sacrificed himself to defeat Thanos. But if he were Peter and given the choice to resurrect one late loved one, who would Tom Holland pick? This was the question put to the star in an interview with IGN at the premiere of his new Pixar movie Onward.

Chris Pratt And Tom Holland Want To Set Up Dungeons And Dragons Game With Avengers Cast
With many of the stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe working together on countless movies that span years, a certain sense of camaraderie has developed among the members of the comic book franchise’s massive ensemble, with many core actors in the McU also becoming firm friends off-screen as well.

Art imitated life when Robert Downey Jr. mimicked Tony Stark’s role in Spider-Man: Homecoming and became a real-life mentor to Tom Holland, with the two even going hiking together when the furor surrounding Sony’s initial decision to end their working relationship with Marvel Studios was at its peak, while Anthony Mackie found out that he was set to inherit Captain America’s iconic shield at the end of Avengers: Endgame when he was hanging out at Chris Evans’ house.

There’s been plenty of behind-the-scenes videos released from the franchise’s biggest blockbusters that show just how well the cast get along,

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt Talk "Budding Bromance" at 'Onward' Premiere

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt Talk
Dan Scanlon's Onward may boast a fantastical world of elves, sprites, trolls, spells and curses, but the director says that the magic that colors his family adventure flick existed decades before hitting the big screen. 

The film, which follows a pair of elf brothers on a treacherous journey to bring their late dad back to life for one day, comes from the relationship Scanlon shares with his older brother and the experience of losing his father early in his childhood. "Not knowing my father growing up, everything I learned about him felt magical," Scanlon told The Hollywood ...

Chris Pratt Addresses Whether Thor’s In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

For the last decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been an intensely continuity-conscious franchise (with only the occasional arithmetic miscalculation), and so when filaments of plot are left swaying in the narrative breeze, viewers have come to expect resolution. While some of us are still waiting to learn what happened to Samuel Sterns after he became infected with Bruce Banner’s irradiated blood, another more recent example involves a certain God of Thunder and his potential involvement with a ragtag band of intergalactic outlaws.

Thor, in his full dadbod glory, was last seen in the closing moments of Avengers: Endgame relinquishing the realm of New Asgard to the stewardship of its newly-crowned king, the Valkyrie formerly known as Scrapper 142. The Son of Odin then boarded the Benatar to join the self-styled Guardians of the Galaxy on what was hinted to become a search for the time-displaced Gamora, who had traveled

How Internet Backlash Helped ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Avoid Box Office Disaster

How Internet Backlash Helped ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Avoid Box Office Disaster
It’s not a stretch to say Universal’s “Cats” and Paramount’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” had two of the most polarizing movie trailers in recent memory. Both caught fire online for all the wrong reasons after fans on social media torched the questionable CGI.

Cats,” an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, used a new science called “digital fur technology” to bring the four-legged felines to the big screen. The expensive CGI, which had been teased relentlessly, would have been too costly to completely retool before it was unleashed over the holidays. The film became a box office disaster and lost $100 million theatrically after factoring in marketing costs.

Sonic” could have easily suffered the same fate. But rather than releasing the movie when it was initially slated to debut last November, Paramount delayed the film so director Jeff Fowler could redesign the animated character, whose creepy teeth initially

Chris Pratt’s Brother Tells Him His Favorite Marvel Hero, And It’s Not Star-Lord
Chris Pratt’s brother Cully has no time for nepotism, choosing two McU stars ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy’s Peter Quill as his picks for favorite Marvel superheroes.

Chris and fellow McU regular Tom Holland recently sat down with Extra Butter to discuss the upcoming Pixar movie Onward. During their exchange, interviewer Mark S. Allen surprised the Star-Lord actor with a video call from Cully, who trolled his brother by fawning over Holland.

As well as naming Spider-Man and Thor as his top two Avengers, Cully expressed disappointment that Holland isn’t working with Chris Hemsworth on Onward instead of the Infinity Saga’s other cosmic Chris. On a sincere note, however, Chris Pratt also praised the Pixar movie for its take on brotherly bonds, telling Cully that the film seems almost designed to make him cry:

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Breaks Video Game Box Office Record With $58 Million Opening

  • The Wrap
Paramount’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” has become a Presidents Day weekend hit at the box office, as industry estimates are now reporting a $58 million opening weekend from 4,167 screens for the Blue Blur’s movie debut. That result will also set a new record for the best opening by a video game adaptation, topping the $54.3 million set last year by “Detective Pikachu.”

With no major family films released since the holiday season and a 4-day weekend leaving kids out of school for an extra day, “Sonic” has filled a niche in the movie market and is now estimated to reach $70 million by the end of Monday. That number would rank among the Top 5 highest extended openings for Presidents Day weekend below “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Deadpool” and the $242 million record held by “Black Panther.”

While films based on video games have had a history of being poorly received, “Sonic” has managed
