Spider-Man: Far From Home

Though it started to look like Spider-Man would be going back to Sony after their partnership with Disney came to a crashing end, a surprising deal was able to save the webslinger from the corporate snap that would have dusted the character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Though both parties agreed on new terms, it was who brought them together that made it all happen. According to new reports, it was Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland‘s last-minute heroics that were able to save Spidey from being lost to the MCU. More on the report below.

The Last of Us Part II

A brand new trailer for one of the most anticipated upcoming video games, The Last of Us Part II, was released today as part of a PlayStation State of Play event.

But perhaps even more exciting than getting a new trailer, is that the long, long-awaited release date has also been revealed. It’s been over six years now since the all-time great first game came into our lives, devastated us, thrilled us, changed us. It’s been nearly three years since the sequel was first confirmed. Two years have now passed since we got our second peek at the game. And it’s been over a year since we saw the first gameplay, which was our last look at the game.

Click on over to the other side for the new trailer and release date.

Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear.

D23 Expo 2019: Tom Holland and Kevin Feige Share Their Thoughts On Spider-Man Break-Up

Spider-Man Far From Home

Given the recent success of Spider-Man films after joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was some hope that Disney and Sony would continue to play nice with each other. However, that all came to a crashing halt when it was confirmed that the deal to share the character was off, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would no longer produce any new Spider-Man titles. This meant that Spidey could no longer play in the MCU sandbox, and that Sony was free to use the Webslinger as they please. This was disappointing news to many, especially those who saw that it was Marvel Studios who was the one to bring Spidey back to greatness after a less than impressive and short-lived reboot.

But none are more disappointed than the two people at the center of all of this, Feige and star Tom Holland. While at the D23 Expo, the two were able to share their thoughts on the split. Check out what they had to say below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

By now, you may have heard that Sony and Marvel Studios are breaking up over the financial arrangement to continue to collaborate and produce Spider-Man films. Fan reaction was swift, as many were putting the blame on Sony for not agreeing to Disney’s new terms – after all, Sony was the one who came to Marvel and Marvel was the one who helped re-establish Spidey’s cinematic reputation. However, there were those who sided with Sony, citing that Disney’s request comes off as greedy. Whatever the case, Spidey’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be coming to an end.

As we wait to hear more about the fallout between the two, Sony is attempting to come out of this ahead by placing the blame on Disney and calling the break-up “disappointing.” More on the report below.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are very adept at being able to give us entertaining material in all mediums from live-action to animation and even television. They are even more well-known for taking risks on projects that many deem to be failures. However, time and again, they have proven the skeptics wrong. As such, they have shown that they can give us hits by directing films like The LEGO Movie and Jump Street films. And of course, the two were also producers on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which won them their first Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

That leads us to our next report. While at the Television Critics Association 2019, they spoke about some upcoming TV series based on Marvel characters which Sony currently controls. More on the report below.

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Most would instantly recognize the camera revealing a miniaturized functional neighborhood with that soft and melodic piano beats to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the long-running educational children’s television series hosted by Fred Rogers. For many people of all ages, especially young preschoolers, Rogers’ on-screen persona was the endearing face of many broad topics from the things that happen in everyday life to the more tragic situations. But no matter what it was, he dealt with all of that with empathy and respect. Even after his death, Rogers’ legacy of kindness and love continues to resonate.

Now, his life will be depicted in a fictionalized account of an interview between a cold and cynical journalist named Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) and Mr. Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks). And Sony has released the first trailer for A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood. Check out the trailer here below.
