The drama over the film future of Spider-Man seemingly never ends. After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to deliver, Sony announced an elaborate plan to spread the franchise out into some very intriguing spin-off films like Sinister Six and Venom. Then rumors began bubbling they’d been in touch with Marvel Studios to try and figure out some kind of mutually beneficial deal. At one point, there was even a discussion of Spider-Man maybe appearing in 2016′s Captain America: Civil War. Those talks broke down, and at the moment, things are still in flux.
The latest update is a few of the details in those now legendary Marvel and Sony talks. Apparently, if a deal was worked out, Marvel’s plan was to completely distance their version of Spider-Man from everything Sony had done with the character. That means recasting Andrew Garfield. Read More »
Over the summer, Al Pacino saw and loved Guardians of the Galaxy. He saw it with his kids and was incredibly impressed with the work Marvel Studios was putting on screen. “I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up,” he told Deadline. He then said he’d be open to appearing in a Marvel movie if he could “understand [it] in terms of how I fit in it.”
That opened the door, and in a new interview, Pacino reveals he had a meeting with Kevin Feige to discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The last time a star said they had a meeting like this, Vin Diesel ended up as Groot. So will Al Pacino appear in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie? What character will he play? And what, specifically, did he say on this matter? Read all the Al Pacino Marvel madness below. Read More »

This is an important character in the world of the film’s heroes, one you probably expected to be in the film, but apparently is not. Apparently, this character is already dead.
What does this missing character mean for the remainder of the DC Cinematic Universe? Possibly a lot. Read more about the pre-Batman v Superman death below. Read More »
The odds of this happening are akin to successfully navigating an asteroid field, but it’s just so fun we had to pass it along. One site is reporting that Warner Bros. has offered Christopher Nolan the opportunity to direct Ready Player One, Ernie Cline‘s pop culture-infused sci-fi adventure, adapted by Zak Penn.
Recently, we reported that Penn’s script had been turned into the studio. If they like it, the timing is right to go out to directors. However, you have to think that Warner Bros. offers Nolan every single movie they have. If he wanted to direct Justice League, Wonder Woman, another Batman movie or The Hobbit, he could. So the question is, if this happened at all, would Christopher Nolan ever direct this film? Also, what does the offer say about the state of the property?

The announcement of the Suicide Squad cast and characters has shed even more light on what DC has planned for its Cinematic Universe. Namely, while there are lots of huge heroes getting movies, the studio won’t be skimping on the villains, either.

We know the Zack Snyder film will feature Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor. But a few new rumors not only hint at other major villains popping up in this film, they hint at connections tantalizing connections to the other films as well.
