The new animated Spider-Man movie trailer has been a pretty big hit. With 16M views on YouTube in a matter of days since the official trailer released. Several familiar names, or rather voices, star in the movie. But who are all the names behind the masks we see in the trailer? The casual Spider-Fan may not be familiar with the new Spider-Man on the big screen or the other faces featured in the trailer. NerdBastards is here to help break down the names and actors that will bring Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse to life.
Announcements have been made for what’s next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Are we getting the Avengers 4 title? Of course not. Instead, we received casting news for the untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. So who is joining Tom Holland in the sequel?
It should come as no surprise to anyone that the incredibly successful reboot to the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming will be getting a sequel. Granted, the first film just came out in theaters, but that doesn’t mean the studio isn’t already in high gear working to rake in as much cash as they can with another entry. One of the things that made the film so successful had to be director Jon Watts, and while fans were hoping the director would return, there was nothing solid in the works until now.
Being one of Marvel’s biggest and most popular characters over the years, Spider-Man has had plenty of exposure throughout mass media. In addition to the comics, we have seen Spider-Man in multiple cartoon shows since the 1960s, live action tv show in the 1970s, and multiple iterations in the movies. We first saw him in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man trilogy in the early 2000s. Then Sony opted to reboot the character for the Amazing Spider-Man films. Unfortunately, the reboot was not as well received as Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe proved to have a great formula that is now pretty much the standard for superhero movies.
Did you see this coming? Suddenly Sony‘s Venom movie looks promising as they grab Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) to direct and cast Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant) as Eddie Brock, who later becomes Venom, the villain with a bone to pick with Spider-Man. There’s even a release date of October 5th, 2018. The Marvel and Sony partnership movie Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters this July 7th to reboot the franchise with Tom Holland as Peter Parker. That means we’ll likely see Holland and Hardy go toe to toe on the big screen. (more…)
Well, this is unexpected. Sony Pictures has randomly announced a Spider-Man spin-off film focusing on the villain Venom for an Oct 2018 release. Umm, wut, lol? (more…)
As every evolving mythos surrounding your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man marches on into it’s 52nd year, you start to wonder if there is any new twists or turns creators could spin to reinvent the character for new generations. We’ve seen costume changes, more than a few clones, heck even web-shooters with a built in mp3 player (kids are crazy about those mp3 players) and bat-crap-crazy dance numbers that have NO place in the movie. Where can you take Lee and Ditko’s wallcrawler when it seems like he’s been everywhere?
The butt. You go straight for the butt.
Corridor Digital plunged new depths in a special effects/rectal web extravaganza (featuring RocketJump filmmaker Clinton Jones as Spidey) that you have to see to believe (and then forever never unsee.) (more…)
