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.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man has seen better days. The character went from being the sunny webslinging hero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to being a pile of dust in just three films, only to be brought back once more to save the universe and then go on vacation – which ended up being completely ruined. The future of your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man looked like it was going to be bright considering all of the success the character had when Marvel Studios stepped in to save the character after an abysmal reboot.

However, it looks like the era of the MCU Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) may have spun its last web as reports are saying that Marvel Studios will no longer produce any more Spider-Man films after they and Sony failed to reach an agreement. More on the report below.

Hidden Figures

One of the first tragedies of the Disney-Fox merger was the dissolution of Fox’s smaller branch Fox 2000. That branch produced films like Hidden Figures and Life of Pi.

It was thought that everyone at Fox 2000 would be out of a job. But a new report says another studio will be saving it. Sony will be hiring Elizabeth Gabler, former head of the now defunct Fox 2000, and her team to do film and TV adaptations of smaller films based on inspirational stories. More on the report below.

Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Sony has finally found someone to play Nathan Drake in their long-in-development movie based on the Uncharted video game series, and it is not someone you were expecting.

It would appear that the studio is quite high on the star of their latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Tom Holland, as the actor has become the latest actor attached to play Drake. Why they chose such a young actor for the role makes a little more sense when you see the reason, though I’m not very confident that it will make fans of the games feel better about the casting or the direction the movie is now moving in.

Spider-Man: Homecoming title card

Now that Spider-Man has been officially welcomed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can look forward to Spider-Man: Homecoming, his upcoming standalone film which is expected to hit theaters next year.

There wasn’t really any worry that the film would be an origins story considering that was already done in Captain America: Civil War, so what better way to introduce the new Webslinger to the superhero shared universe than to attach a subtitle that has a double meaning to it. And now Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman explains the double entendre. Check out what he had to say below.

Sony Exploring Spider-Man Shared Universe Again; Silver Sable Spinoff May Be In The Works

Spider-Man and Silver Sable

Sony had high hopes for The Amazing Spider-Man. The studio had set up for a subsequent sequel and spinoffs in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, since the film performed disappointingly at the box office and with critics, Sony had to cancel all of that. In the end, it may have been the best decision for the character for when it was announced that the studio would share the character with Marvel, everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man was met with overwhelmingly high praise when he was introduced in Captain America: Civil War.

That kind of excitement can only help him leading up to his formal introduction in his standalone film due out in the summer of next year. That excitement isn’t only for the fans, it can also help studio execs who will use it to create sequels and spinoffs in their own connective universe. More on the story below.

Spider-Man

It’s been a little over a year since the impossible happened. Marvel fans couldn’t believe that Sony and Marvel Studios inked a deal that would allow them to share Spider-Man. The Webslinger makes his Marvel cinematic debut in Captain America: Civil War, which will then be followed by his own solo film that is said to have a John Hughes-vibe seeing that it would center on Parker balancing his time as a high school student and a superhero.

Soon, Sony would register a domain name that would be a reflection of that idea. Now, during their panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada, the studio has officially confirmed that the title of the Spider-Man reboot will be Spider-Man: Homecoming. More on the story below.

‘Spider-Man’ Reboot News & ‘Captain America: Civil War’

Spider-Man is coming home in a very big way. He won’t be doing any webslinging on his own until 2017, but he will make his Marvel Cinematic debut in Captain America: Civil War. However, the problem with having a second reboot in nearly ten years, is the notion that they will have to repeat the same origins story all over again. Of course, that can get tiresome, and would probably turn audiences away from seeing the solo feature. However, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have confirmed that their script won’t have Peter Parker go through the same motions to become Spider-Man. In fact, the two reveal that their Spider-Man is an already established hero.

Things have been developing quickly for Sony and Marvel’s reboot of Spider-Man. Excitement that the webslinger would finally be joining his fellow Avengers has been growing ever since the two studios made the decision to share the character. Jon Watts (Cop Car) was named as director of the film, with Tom Holland winning producers Amy Pascal (Sony) and Kevin Feige (Marvel) over during the audition process. Marisa Tomei also joins the cast as a much younger Aunt May.

Vacation and Horrible Bossses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein were recently confirmed to write the script, and described Peter Parker as “a sharp kid and witty” kid who “kind of deals with the fact that he’s an outcast and a geek through humor.” Now Watts is talking about his plans for Marvel’s Spider-Man. Check out what he had to say below.
