Spider-Man Homecoming 2

Spider-Man: Homecoming swung into theaters last Friday and emerged from the weekend as the most beloved Spider-Man movie yet. One of the reasons the movie works so well is that it avoids rehashing Peter Parker’s origin story and skips a lot of beats we’ve already seen in other cinematic variations on the character. That includes Spider-Man’s famous “spider-sense,” a precognitive power that gives him a slight edge over opponents and alerts him to danger seconds before it happens.

In a batch of new interviews, director Jon Watts and producer Kevin Feige explain why we didn’t see any specific spider-sense sequences in Homecoming, Feige lays out some breadcrumbs pertaining to the future of Zendaya’s character, and Aunt May actress Marisa Tomei reveals her “horrified” reaction to learning about her character’s age in the comics.

spider-man homecoming characters in infinity war

School may be out for Peter Parker in Avengers: Infinity War, but that doesn’t mean it’s HAGS for all of his Spider-Man: Homecoming classmates.

One of Spider-Man’s classmates from Spider-Man: Homecoming has been confirmed to appear in the third Avengers movie. No, it’s not Peter’s bestie and tech geek, Ned. But this classmate’s appearance could hint at an appearance at a few of Peter’s best buds.

Spider-Man Homecoming Final Scene

Though the marketing campaign for Spider-Man: Homecoming seemed like it had spoiled a lot of the movie, there were still a handful of surprises in Spidey’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that remained unrevealed until we were sitting in the theater. One of those moments came in the final scene before the credits started rolling, but since there are plenty of people who didn’t contribute to the film’s estimated $117 million opening weekend, we won’t talk about any details in that scene until after a spoiler warning presented in bold font so you can’t possibly miss it.

Beware of spoilers from here on out! You’ve been warned! Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Spoiler Review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The hype is real — Spider-Man: Homecoming is definitely the best Spider-Man movie made to date. The film, which stars Tom Holland as a fresh-faced Peter Parker, gives us our best version of the character as well as the most realistic, most diverse on-screen version of Queens in a Spider-Man film. There are a ton of positives with this film, as well as some food for thought, so without further ado, let’s get into it.

Spoilers ahead.

All the Marvel Big Bads, Ranked By Badness

michael keaton as the vulture in spiderman homecoming

I totally get that you don’t want to read an introduction about how there’s a new (great) Marvel Cinematic Universe villain because of Spider-Man: Homecoming. You’re skipping this to get right to the list so you can get right to the comments section. No sweat. You’ve earned it.

If you’re still reading, there are two things to keep in mind regarding this particularly ranking of Marvel’s bad guys. One, I’m judging them all based on Personality and Plan Points. How magnetic are they? How stupid is their plan for world domination (or whatever else they’re seeking)?

Two, Thanos isn’t on it because he doesn’t count. He’s not a villain; he’s a Postmates customer with the munchies. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to Infinity War when he can legitimately join this list.

jeremy renner fractured arms

Hawkeye may or may not be sidelined (again) in Avengers: Infinity War, but it won’t be because Jeremy Renner injured himself during a stunt for the Marvel superhero film.

Renner said Friday that he “broke his arms” on the set of the New Line comedy film Tag, which, like Infinity War, is currently filming in Atlanta. Renner fractured his right elbow and his left wrist during the unspecified stunt, but promised that it won’t affect his job.

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters this weekend, and like every other Marvel Studios movie, there are some bonus scenes both during and after the credits. It’s not quite as involved as the five credits scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but there’s one after the animated closing credits sequence and one after the all the credits have scrolled by. The latter is merely a gag scene that we won’t give away here because it’s much better to just wait and experience yourself, but we’ll say it’s easily one of the funniest post-credits scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ranking up there with dancing Baby Groot.

However, it’s the mid-credits scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming that we want to talk about, because it might be perplexing to audiences for a number of reasons. So join us below as we talk about the Spider-Man Homecoming credits scene, but do not read any further if you want to avoid spoilers for the movie, because they’re all over the place. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok leads into Infinity War

Despite the fact that it comes out in just a few months, we still don’t know very much about Thor: Ragnarok beyond what we’ve seen in the teaser trailer: Cate Blanchett’s Hela wrecks Asgard, and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), with his trusty hammer Mjolnir destroyed, is captured and sent to a gladiatorial planet where he faces off against The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) under the watchful eye of The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).

But in a new interview, Marvel Studios President and mega-producer Kevin Feige says that the film will not only “drastically” change things for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that Thor Ragnarok leads into Infinity War. Read on for some speculation about how the events of this film might influence the next Avengers movie.
