Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #3

In the two film franchises that Spider-Man has been in, never has his suit been as technologically advanced as the one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though we didn’t see much of those advancements in Captain America: Civil War, it was a definite upgrade when compared to the homemade Spidey suit and goggles.

But Spider-Man: Homecoming will put all of the tech that Iron Man put into the suit on full display. And based on the new trailer, not only are there about 500 different ways to websling but there are also other tools that are at the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’s disposal. Check out the latest trailer for the film below.

BAADASSSSS!   |  

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Michael Giacchino is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the best composers for film and television working today. Last year alone saw him apply his inventive musical chops to the popular blockbuster hits Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Well the man is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this summer as he is providing the score for the much-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. As a little treat to close out this unadulterated whirlwind of a week on the planet Earth, Giacchino has released a brief snippet from his Homecoming soundtrack, which he recently completed. Longtime fans of Marvel Comics’ friendly neighborhood superhero will very likely recognize this upbeat number.

Check it out below.

Movie Review: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’
eelyajekiM   |  

Yondu and Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Director: James Gunn
Screenwriter: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: May 5, 2017

James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was once considered one of the riskiest films that Marvel Studios could ever release. It was an unknown property which cast three relative unknowns and gave two A-listers voice roles. However, the film’s surprising success proved that a quirky, hilarious, musically-charged space opera could work as a superhero property. Who would have thought a roguish space outlaw, an alien assassin, an alien manic, a gun-toting raccoon, and a talking tree would be our favorite a-holes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Now they are back for round two in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all sequels to a universally loved film, expectations run unbelievably high. Fortunately, Gunn never misses a beat. It’s absolutely terrific and just as fun, if not more fun, than the first. But it’s also one of the few Marvel films that’s emotionally driven. Check out my full review below.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack List

It really wouldn’t be much of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie without an Awesome Mix soundtrack. We’ve heard little teases of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack from trailers and various TV spots, but James Gunn has said that some of those songs won’t appear on the final soundtrack cut. Having seen the film yesterday, there is some truth to that. But there are also some very welcomed additions.

Now the full soundtrack list for the movie has been revealed, and like any Awesome Mix soundtrack, there is an eclectic mix of ’70s and ’80s tunes that sure to get you singing along. Check out the full list plus some quotes from Gunn as to why he picked some of them.

Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios certainly has an eye for finding talented directors. In their search for a director for Captain Marvel, the studio considered Niki Caro (Whale Rider, MacFarland, USA), Lesli Linka Glatter (TV’s Mad Men), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).

But it seems like those reports were off just a bit. There’s word that the duo who have worked on Half Nelson, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and Mississippi Grind together, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will direct Marvel’s first female-led superhero flick starring Brie Larson. More on the story below.

The Future Of Marvel Studios: Spider-Man, R-Rated Movies, James Gunn, and More
eelyajekiM   |

Though we have an idea for the remainder of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we don’t know much about Phase Four. Besides the fact that the first film to christen the new Phase after Avengers 4 will be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we can only guess that there will be a nice mix of new heroes and sequels. Then, of course, there is figuring out who should be the new Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, etc.

But the future extends further than just beyond the films themselves. There’s also the deal sharing Spider-Man with Sony Pictures, working with directors like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s James Gunn, and whether or not they’ll be doing an R-rated movie anytime soon. The studio recently gave a rare opportunity to THR to go inside the fortress known as Walt Disney Studios. There they spoke with Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige, and discovered what the future holds for Marvel and how they keep their success rate so high. Find out more about this below.

There is no standard number when it comes to how many end-credits scenes a film should have. But we now know Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will have five of them. More on the story below.

James Gunn Will Return To Direct ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Never has there been a director to direct an entire trilogy of Marvel films in the age of the MCU, though a few have come close with Jon Favreau on the first two Iron Man films, Joss Whedon on two Avengers films, and The Russo Brothers with the latter two Captain America films. (Thor has had three different directors.) But James Gunn is set to become the first to have directed three for Marvel. That’s right, Gunn has confirmed that he will be directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. More on the story below.
