Spider Man Avengers 3

UPDATE: As expected, Sony denied this rumor. Disney wouldn’t comment. Read more below.

Today’s juicy rumor comes from the land of Marvel. We all know about the talks Sony and Marvel Studios had over the last year about what to do with Spider-Man. Marvel wanted him back. Sony was open to sharing after The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Both sides discussed it, but as far as we know an agreement could not be reached. The original plan was for the web-slinger to appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. For now, as far as we know, Spider-Man remains at Sony, maybe appearing in The Sinister Six or The Amazing Spider-Man 3, if those movies even happen.

Well, the latest rumor doesn’t know what’s happening with Spider-Man at Sony but believes the company was able to work out a deal with Marvel. But since Captain America: Civil War will be in production very soon, the next opportunity for the character to appear is Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018. Which, supposedly, is what’s going to happen. Read more about the Spider Man Avengers 3 rumor below. Read More »

Batman v Superman logo

UPDATE: Star of the film, Henry Cavill, has come out and stated that this story is not true. Read more detail below.

Warner Bros. has yet to comment on this wild rumor, but it’s a super fun one. An image appeared online Friday that appears to be from some kind of promotional material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On the image, it says that the movie will be split in two, with Part I, called Enter the Knight, hitting theaters October 23, 2015 and Part II, Dawn of Justice, hitting on the original release date, March 25, 2016.

The order of the dates on the image makes it look like an international image, and the blur on the website makes it unclear if it’s the official site run by Warner Bros. or a fake or fan site. Still, the Batman v Superman split is a fun rumor to discuss none the less. Which we’ll do below. Read More »
