In addition to Venom, which is now filming, and Black and Silver, which is currently under development, the studio is now putting Morbius The Living Vampire in the works. According to new reports, Power Rangers writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama will pen the script. More on the story below.

New York Comic-Con was so much fun this past weekend, and one of the highlights of my time was getting to interview “the man in the chair” aka movie-stealer aka Spidey’s best friend aka Ned also known as Jacob Batalon. Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the best Spider-Man movies in years, and one of the many reasons was Batalon’s utter glee as Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) sidekick.

Check out the interview below.

A Better Look At Spider-Man’s New Suit That Will Appear In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Spider-Man: Homecoming

At one point in time, a superhero will get a costume change. We are seeing a lot of this happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, usually with Iron Man and Captain America. But towards the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw that Peter Parker would be given a new suit if he took the offer to become an Avenger. Of course, he declined, but that doesn’t mean it was the last time we would see the suit.

That’s because it appeared once again during the Avengers: Infinity War trailer that was shown this summer at both D23 Expo and the San Diego Comic-Con. But Spidey fans barely got any time to familiarize themselves with it as it was shown for only a brief moment. Now, they will be able to see the full suit. So, if you want to take a look, check out the full image here below.

Sony Has Plans To Expand Their Spider-Man-Less Spinoff Universe

Venom

Spider-Man recalls that there was a point in time when Sony had the ambitious plans of creating a cinematic universe on the back of the fairly weak Amazing Spider-Man movies. Those plans never came to fruition, and the studio was forced to scale back on the plans, even resorting to sharing the Webslinger with their Marvel competitors over at Disney.

However, that deal worked out in both of their favors, and with Spider-Man: Homecoming being such a huge success, Sony can look forward to building a Spider-Man-less cinematic universe using supporting characters like Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat. The studio has already announced that there will be two films based on those characters, and they intend to announce a few more in the coming months. More on this story below.

Come next year, Marvel Studios will be celebrating their tenth anniversary. Quite an achievement for a superhero movie studio owned by Disney. And what better way for them to commemorate such an occasion then to release the ensemble of ensembles, an Avengers film featuring heroes from not only across the globe but from galaxies far away as well. We were at D23 to see the very first look at Avenger: Infinity War, and as you can imagine, there was a lot to take in and a lot to get excited over. Check out our description of the footage here below.

The Reason Why Spidey’s Spider Sense Never Tingled In ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #3

If you watched Spider-Man: Homecoming last weekend chances are you may have noticed some very significant differences to the character. Sure Uncle Ben wasn’t there, Peter (Tom Holland) didn’t make the suit himself, and a diverse cast played characters that were portrayed as Caucasian in the comics.

But one of the most notable things that went under the radar was Spider-Man’s lack of a tingling Spider Sense. So for those who haven’t seen the film yet, there will be spoilers following the jump. You have been warned.

Movie Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming
Written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley & Jon Watts & Christopher Ford & Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers
Directed by Jon Watts
Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr.
Sony Pictures
Release date: July 7, 2017

The general consensus amongst critics and die-hard comic book movie fans alike is that no matter how great the MCU films get, the pinnacle of the genre was achieved back in the early 2000s with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004). Interestingly enough, two of the dirt worst superhero movies since then also featured the webslinger: Raimi’s awful Spider-Man 3 in 2007, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014, which killed the rebooted franchise before it could even make the planned Sinister Six film it spent 2 hours setting up. Marvel Studios and Sony were able to come to an agreement since that debacle, which led to the best Spidey on screen in 12 years with Tom Holland’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War last year. A year later, Sony & Marvel again united to bring us Spider-Man: Homecoming, and maybe because I’m writing this an hour after seeing it, without time to properly marinate… but Homecoming is the best standalone Spider-Man movie since… ever.

This weekend, all eyes will be on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not only is the film Spidey’s first standalone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it is also the second reboot in 15 years. Now that he’s allowed to play in the Marvel sandbox it will be interesting to see what kinds of adventures the Webslinger will go on.

While it’s still too early to tell that, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige gives us an idea of what to expect and what kind of plans he has in store for the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Find out what they are in the full story below.
