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…)

Peter Parker

By now, everyone knows that the Spider-Man franchise is being rebooted… again. This time Sony has bent over for Disney and given them the opportunity to use Spidey in their own version of the Marvel Universe. This gave rise to a lot of fan outcry that Marvel should give one of the other favorite incarnations of Spider-Man a chance – namely Miles Morales. But according to MCU overlord Kevin Feige, they’ll be sticking with the familiar face of Peter Parker. (more…)

Ever since Marvel (thankfully) regained the rights to include their endlessly popular Spiderfella in the ever-expanding MCU films, speculation has run rampant as to who may be behind the webs. Outside of who would be playing the iconic web-head, there’s also been a lot of hubbub over which of the many iterations of Spider-Man would be appearing in Marvel’s films. Of course now that we know that it will be an apparently young Peter Parker behind the mask, the only thing we have left to ponder is the identity of the young new movie hero. Today, as if the casting Gods heard our pleas for answers, a second young actor has been brought forward as a potential contender for the role. (more…)

Marvel Looking at Legitimate Teens as Spider-Man

Amazing-Spider-Man-2-webslinging

Every kid wants to grow up to be Spider-Man, and maybe that has something to do with the fact that you don’t have to be all the way grown-up to be Spider-Man since his great power took hold of him while he was still in high school. On screen though, Tobey Maguire was already 27 when his first Spider-Man movie was released in 2002, while Andrew Garfield was almost 30 years old by the time that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was filming in 2013. So now, as Marvel Studios and Sony are looking to re-cast once again, producers look to be making the shrewd move to set the next film apart by casting an actual teenager for the role. (more…)

Naturally, that means some of the books, including some of the ones you may collect monthly, are about to be cancelled, and in a new interview Marvel’s SVP of Sales & Marketing listed nearly three dozen titles that will be coming to end at the start of Secret Wars.

It’s easily going to be the most coveted roles amongst young Hollywood actors. Yes, everyone wants to be Spider-Man, and with the hero’s new found place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s safe to say that a lot of guys of a certain age are going to be making their pitch to play your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

Russo Brothers

Ever since the rights to Spider-Man have been offered up for the Disney/Marvel super-hero powerhouse to use as they see fit, the rumors have been flying about what they’ll do first. Most recently, there have been whispers that Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) might be involved in the newest Spider-Man reboot in both a directing and writing capacity.
