Black Cat and Silver Sable

There’s more than enough Spider-Man content to go around in Hollywood – at least that’s the mentality of Sony Pictures, who owns the cinematic rights to many of the characters within Spidey’s universe. The studio has already given a green light to Venom movie starring Tom Hardy, and now they’ve proven they’re serious about bringing another Spider-Man spin-off to the big screen as quickly as possible.

The studio has just hired The Secret Life of Bees, Love and Basketball, and Beyond the Lights director Gina Prince-Bythewood to direct their Black Cat and Silver Sable movie, which now has an official title. Get the latest info below.

Spider-Man Homecoming Drone

In one of the recent trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, we get a much closer look at one of the new gadgets that comes with the suit that Tony Stark created for the webslinger. The spider symbol on Spider-Man’s chest detaches from the suit and turns into a flying drone. While you might consider this to be nothing more than movie magic, you can actually own the drone yourself.

Spider-Man Homecoming Poster

What the hell went wrong with the new posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming? Could we see new human characters appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? Would you believe that Hugh Jackman didn’t know that a wolverine was a real animal until after he signed on for X-Men? Will we get more of T.J. Miller as Weasel in Deadpool 2? All that and more in this edition of Superhero Bits. Read More »

Spider Man Homecoming TV Spot

Hot on the heels of this morning’s new trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming (and our subsequent breakdown), Disney and Marvel Studios have released a new TV spot that ties the movie to the NBA Finals. And if there’s one takeaway so far from all of this film’s marketing, it’s that they really, really want everyone to know that Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark is a big part of Homecoming.

Logan - Patrick Stewart

In the Old Man Logan comic, from which James Mangold‘s Logan borrowed a few ideas, Wolverine killed the X-Men. In a flashback, it’s revealed Mysterio played mind games on Logan and tricked him into killing his family of mutants. Mangold and his co-writers ultimately used the spirit of that scene for Professor Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart), not Logan.

In an earlier draft of the script, the story began with the incident in Westchester, New York, which is only alluded to in the movie. Below, Mangold discusses the Logan alternate opening.

Spider-Man Homecoming

jack kesy deadpool 2

Deadpool got a lot of mileage out of casting a lesser-known actor as a lesser-known villain and it looks like the sequel will follow suit. Jack Kesy, whose credits include FX’s The Strain and the upcoming Baywatch, has joined the cast of the sequel as a “major villain.”

Doug Liman directing Jumper

Update: THR’s Borys Kit says that IT director Andy Muschietti is on the studio’s list to replace Liman. The original story follows below.

Justice League Dark has lost another high-caliber filmmaker. Liman, who also dropped out of 20th Century Fox’s Gambit, is following in Guillermo del Toro‘s footsteps and moving on from the DCEU film. Another project of his, Chaos Walking, got the green light, so a scheduling conflict arose.

Below, learn more about Liman’s vision for Justice League Dark and what’s next for him.

Logan Honest Trailer

This week brought to home video Hugh Jackman‘s ninth and final round as the mutant Wolverine in the form of Logan. In what many have already regarded one of the best comic book movies of all time, director James Mangold subverts almost all the expectations fans have from an X-Men movie, including the assumption that another Wolverine spin-off will be just as mediocre as the previous two solo outings for the character.

Of course, Screen Junkies couldn’t help but take some shots at Logan in their latest Honest Trailer, which is also their 200th episode. Even if the movie was a little more difficult to make fun of because of how great it is, they still have some good jokes, mostly about sad, aging Logan, the surprisingly expert created documentary about all the mutant children being experimented on, and how the rest of the X-Men movies now pale in comparison. Oh, and they bring in Deadpool (the real Ryan Reynolds) to help spice things up a bit.

Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 out of the way, we can look forward to the next Marvel Studios title arriving this summer, and that’s their collaboration with Sony Pictures, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This will be the second reboot of the Spider-Man franchise in five years, but since the introduction of Tom Holland as the new webslinger in Captain America: Civil War, fans are actually excited to see the franchise start over, especially since we’re not getting the wallcrawler’s origin story again. Instead, as shown in the final Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (there are actually two of them), we get to see Peter Parker struggle as he balances his double life as a superhero desperate to prove himself and a high school student who can’t share his biggest secret.

Watch the two final Spider-Man Homecoming trailer below. Read More »
