This information is still strictly resigned to the rumor mill for now, but the Youtube channel The Hashtag Show is reporting that Sony and Marvel are eyeing Matthew McConaughey to play Norman Osborne in their newest Spider-Man installment. The channel isn’t that widely known, but has had a few confirmed leads in the past; including some early Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers. So while it may not be wise to get your hopes up, you may not want to completely dismiss this news. (more…)

It’s practically official – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios have decided on Asa Butterfield to star as their Spider-Man.

Nat Wolff, Liam James, Tom Holland, and Timothee Chalamet were among the other notable contenders. (more…)

Shortlist of Future ‘Spider-Man’ Directors Leaked

Amazing-Spider-Man-2-webslinging

It is an experience that is both thrilling and daunting, getting the chance to make a Spider-Man movie. We know that another Spider-Man movie is coming, that part is inevitable, but the question of who will get to make, that’s a truly compelling point of interest. Sam Raimi made three, and despite whatever reservations you hold about that third one, he had one TKO in Spider-Man 2. Marc Webb, meanwhile, did a decent enough job on two Amazing Spider-Man films to at least make some bank for Sony, but it’s agreed all around that they were creative duds. Webb, of course, had a cool spider-centric last name, but as to his background, his previous claim to fame was the indie rom-com (500) Days of Summer. They wouldn’t go to that well again for a Spidey movie, would they? (more…)

Comic book fans know that the line-up of the Avengers is constantly changing. There are always new heroes coming in, or going out, or coming back after an unexpected absence, the Avengers are like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get. Avengers: Age of Ultron ends in a change in the line-up, which maybe a spoiler, but the movie’s been advertised as introducing three new characters who are well-established Avengers, so that part’s not necessarily surprising. What is surprising though, in a new revelation from writer/director Joss Whedon, is that he had in mind two more additions to the new Avengers line-up. If only he could have got the rights! (more…)

Is This Marvel’s New Spider-Man?

Spidey 2

When Sony and Marvel were finally able to meet in the middle to have your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was a cause for rejoice.  At long last, the web-slinger would be back home and (man, oh, man) appear on screen with The Avengers.  The big question every fan had on their mind was whether audiences would see a third incarnation of Peter Parker in less than 10 years take the screen or if the MCU was really ready to become as diverse as Marvel Comics has become and finally introduce theatergoers to Miles Morales.  Well, as we have learned, we will be getting yet another Peter Parking outing and if the rumors are to be believed, Enders Game’s Asa Butterfield is the frontrunner to play Spidey.

Avengers-Spider-Man

While it may seem like a small detail at first glance, a film’s title plays a big role in not only the marketing, but also establishing your first impression of what you’ll be watching. The subject, theme, intent; anything really, can be built into the name in order to prepare you for what you’re about to see. Imagine going to see a movie called Pocket Lint that ends up being a detective yarn about a serial arsonist. Perhaps something called Lampshade that ends up being about an alien invasion set in the Elizabethan era. Not only would those both be confusing, they’d be down right stupid. So it’s no surprise that Marvel and Sony, clearly keeping over-analyzers like myself in mind, are reported to be eying a certain exciting new working title for the newest Spider-film. (more…)

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are names that have popped up a lot recently in entertainment news, and for good reason. They are, after all, the duo behind ludicrously enjoyable films like The Lego Movie and 21/22 Jump Street, so it’s no surprise that their considerable talents have been the subject of demand. It seems that they’ll be adding another immensely popular franchise to their impressive resume in 2018, as the pair are set to write and produce an animated Spider-Man feature film. Few details have been released yet, of course, but some tasty nuggets of information have been made available. (more…)

Spider-Man-has-entered-the-MCU

Now that we’ve all come down from the incredible nerdy high that the Spider-Man Sony/Marvel announcement took us all to, we can get back to worrying things to death on the Internet. Things like, how long will this obviously complicated Spider-Man marriage between Sony and Marvel continue? Will it be just long enough for Marvel to establish Spider-Man in the MCU before Sony pulls the carpet out from everything? Kevin Feige has a thing or two to say about that. (more…)
