After Sony decided to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise but before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in the movie that would become The Amazing Spider-Man, Donald Glover made it pretty clear that he would love to play the beloved wall-crawling superhero. Although he didn’t get the part, things have officially gone full circle for the actor/rapper/comedian – he is apparently looking to join the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming in (you guessed it) a mystery role.

Pretty much everyone knows there’s a new Ghostbusters movie coming to theaters this summer.

Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man will be crossing paths with one of Captain America’s old war buddies… only he won’t be one of Captain America’s old war buddies anymore. Kenneth Choi, who played Howling Commando Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger, has joined Spider-Man: Homecoming in a separate and apparently unrelated role. He won’t be the first actor to play two different characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it’s still somewhat uncommon. Read More »

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and to celebrate the casts of both the 1984 classic and this year’s reboot came together on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
For some reason, the posting of the videos on YouTube pretend the arrival of the original Ghostbusters cast during an interview with the new Ghostbusters cast was some kind of surprise, even though we found out about it in advance. Anyway, the two casts get together to talk about the reboot and the legacy of the original Ghostbusters.
Plus, Bill Murray throws his full support behind the reboot and explains why he finally chose this project to come back to the Ghostbusters franchise. If you think that’s just because he’s shilling for the studio, he actually gives some very honest thoughts about the film that might quell some of the fears of naysayers out there.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There are some Ghostbusters fans who just aren’t happy with the reboot coming this summer from director Paul Feig. Most of the hesitancy to embrace the movie comes from the love for the 1984 original or the impression they’re getting from the trailers so far, which has been hit or miss on the comedy front. But there is an uglier side of fandom (though it’s certainly not all or even most of them) who just don’t like the idea of four women leading a Ghostbusters movie. But did you know France already remade Ghostbusters with women?
All right, this Ghostbusters remake wasn’t a major motion picture sanctioned by the government. Instead, film student Jessica Louvel and her fellow students put together a sweded Ghostbusters for France’s Université Lumière Lyon 2 about a year and a half ago.

It’s Ghostbusters Day! Today marks exactly 32 years since the original Ghostbusters hit theaters in 1984. In addition to the theatrical screenings happening around the country tonight, a new featurette from the reboot has just arrived, giving us a much closer look at the update Ecto-1, which is now a hearse instead of an old ambulance.
There aren’t any big revelations about the car, but we do get to see a little more details of the signature vehicle from the movie as well as some footage of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones driving around in it. However, what you’ll really want to pay attention to are the snippets of the new Ghostbusters theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot towards the end.
