The latest television spot for the Russo Brother‘s Captain America: Civil War is online and making the commercial rounds on television and features another look at Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man. This time around we get to hear more from our favorite Web-slinger’s witty repartee as he takes on the Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan. There’s just ten days to go until the North American premiere, and things are heating up on the press rounds for the cast. (more…)


It seems as if every day there is another piece of news coming out of Marvel Studios regarding one of its many projects, as the MCU moves into phase three and beyond.  Yet again Marvel dropped another few bits of information on the public and like all news… With the good, always comes the bad! Earlier today Robert Downey Jr. was revealed to have signed a contract, confirming his appearance as Iron Man (obviously!) in Spider-Man: Homecoming (you can read the NerdBastards article here.) But as Thanos opens a door, he closes a window. It seems that talks between Michael Keaton and Marvel have broken down in relation to his part in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Rumours spread like wildfire after Michael Keaton had been confirmed to be in talks to be part of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the Marvel fanbase lost their minds. Keaton is well known for portraying the lead roles in both Batman (1989) and Beetlejuice (1988) and came was thrown back into the limelight with the insanely brilliant Birdman (2015,)  where he received an Oscar nomination. Keaton’s cult following means he is an ideal addition to any superhero film. Unfortunately it seems that the talks stalled at the offer stage.

Keaton could still be involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming but his current stance is that he is out of the proceedings. It would be incredibly interesting to see where Keaton would fit into the MCU and their upcoming Spider-Man film. Only time will tell who will play what in the film but I think it is safe to say Keaton would be welcome to the Spideyverse with open arms, particularly by the fans.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled for release July 7th, 2017.


Ever since Spider-Man’s shock appearance in the Civil War trailer released in March, the Marvel fan base has exploded with theories and rumours about all the directions this revelation could take the franchise.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel president Kevin Feige revealed that fans can indeed expect cameos from other characters in future Spider-Man movies. “He’s in the universe now,” Feige said, “and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth.” (more…)

Since the dawn of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008, a plethora of Marvel characters have gained worldwide notoriety. While Captain America and Iron Man may be household names now, Spider-Man is still, and has always been, Marvel’s most recognizable character. In fact, he’s probably neck-and-neck with Superman for most popular comic book character ever. That’s why, when it was announced that Sony and Marvel Studios had reached a deal to allow Spider-Man to join his fellow Marvel characters on the big screen in the interconnected MCU, fans blew their collective web shooters. Every bit of new information about this new iteration of Spider-Man has been met with extreme excitement. Well, news comes today that Sony has registered a domain name, which seems to give away the title of the upcoming solo Spider-Man film. Want to know what it is? Find out below!



God, that Captain America: Civil War trailer was a beautiful thing, wasn’t it?  Not only did it really bring the action and give Marvel fans everywhere a reason cheer (and War Machine fans everywhere shed a tear), the newest trailer also brought out Cap 3‘s secret weapon: Spider-Man.  After years of wishing on stars and throwing pennies in wells, Spider-Man fans are finally getting their wish: Marvel Studios is finally bringing Spider-Man, a MARVEL Spider-Man, to the big screen and, oh, man, can’t you just taste the excitement in the air?   Once of the coolest things about seeing Spidey in the Civil War trailer was getting a glimpse of the newest take on that iconic suit! Of course, Marvel Universe newcomer Tom Holland isn’t the first to don the suit and throughout the years, the webslinger has had his fair share of fashion hits and misses.  We decided to take a look back, and a bit forward, to compare these suits and, man, how Spidey has changed.


James Gunn Gushes Over Tom Holland’s Spider-Man


Soon after the second Captain America: Civil War trailer hit the Internet like a ton of bricks yesterday, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn praised the film on Twitter. Fans began asking Gunn for his thoughts on the trailer and specifically what he thought of Spider-Man’s appearance in the trailer. Gunn didn’t disappoint, and practically gushed with praise for Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man. (more…)


It might come as a surprise to find out that there are some NerdBastards that don’t want to find out every little detail about every superhero movie before it hits the big screen. Yes, NerdBastards does write a lot of posts every day about just this kind of thing, it is the bread and butter of the Nerdy Internet Media, but does that mean fans need to know every little detail, or want to for that matter, before they see it in the theater? The latest Captain America: Civil War trailer ending is a perfect example of the studios showing too much. Yes, we’re all dying to see what Spider-Man’s costume is going to look like, but did we really need to see it before the movie made it to the big screen? (more…)


This is one of those stories that we’re kind of obliged to cover. It’s a small detail, it may not be exactly what we think it is, but it involves a highly popular character from a hotly anticipated movie that we really have no other official information for so far. Other parts of the internet believe the artwork on a business card for one of the bigwigs at Marvel Comics reveals the image of what Spider-Man will look like when he makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in this May’s Captain America: Civil War. Having said that, he also looks like how Spider-Man always looks. (more…)


It’s not unusual for comic books to explore the real life issues affecting everyday life. Iron Man Tony Stark became an alcoholic, Captain America became patriotically disenfranchised after Vietnam and Watergate, the Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy had a drug addiction, and an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man dealt poetically with the sorrow of 9/11, and that’s just to name a few. Following in this tradition, the latest version of Venom, Spider-Man’s friend Flash Thompson, is about shown in a very personal struggle that a lot of armed forces vets will be able to identify with, and Marvel Comics is working with the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) to make it as real as possible.
