Even though Spider-Man: Homecoming has been in production down in Atlanta, Georgia for awhile now, we’ve yet to see any official photos emerge online. Sure, there have been spy photos that have provided hints of what we’ll see in the first solo outing for Sony and Marvel’s new collaborative spin on the webslinger, but that’s it. Well, now we have about as close to an official image as we’ll get with a Spider-Man: Homecoming poster that was spotted at Magic Las Vegas, a fashion trade show for apparel vendors.

Even though Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently in production down in Atlanta, Georgia, details on the franchise reboot’s story have remained largely under wraps. For example, even though we’ve heard about the parade of supporting stars who have been cast in the movie, we haven’t heard who any of them are playing in the movie. However, that changes today as director Jon Watts has revealed some of the characters who will be played by the young co-stars who are surrounding Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man.
Find out who the supporting members of the Spider-Man Homecoming cast will be playing after the jump. Read More »

In the years since he filmed the horror movie Clown, director Jon Watts went on to make the critically acclaimed thriller Cop Car and snag the director’s chair on the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. So I could open this post about the latest Clown trailer by making a bad joke about this movie following a perfectly ordinary man who gains extraordinary abilities after being bitten by a radioactive clown, but I would never subject you to such lackluster comedy.
Actually, Clown is about a perfectly ordinary man who gains monstrous new appetites after putting on a clown costume that turns out to be the “skin of a demon.” You know, that old chestnut.

Last summer, it was announced Tom Holland had secured the role of Spider-Man. At the time, we already knew the character would appear in Captain America: Civil War, a role that was highlighted in the last trailer for the film. While it would’ve been more fun to experience the character on the big screen for the first time, it was an understandable decision on Marvel and Disney’s part to promote Spidey’s involvement.
Fans of Spider-Man will most likely be pleased with his role in Civil War, which shows the character at his youngest and nerdiest. Below, Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the new Spider-Man, the experience of casting Tom Holland, and collaborating with Sony.

UPDATE: At CinemaCon, Tom Holland confirmed that the title of the upcoming Spider-Man solo movie would be Spider-Man: Homecoming, adding that “it really is a homecoming” for the character. Sony’s Tom Rothman said the title was “obviously” a high school reference, so it seems to fit with the John Hughes vibe we’ve heard about before. Holland says that throughout the story Peter Parker is really trying to find where he belongs. Check out the logo below:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe understands the inherent joys of a connected superhero world – various characters from all corners of the world can brush shoulders, team up, and occasionally battle it out. You pick up an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man and you get a scene where Peter Parker stops by Hank Pym’s lab for assistance. You read a Daredevil story and Black Widow shows up to help out. This isn’t exclusive to Marvel, but the company invented the modern concept of a shared universe back in the ’60s. It’s kind of their thing.
The film version of the shared Marvel universe has proven incredibly rewarding. Bruce Banner can pop up in Iron Man 3, Falcon can show up in Ant-Man, and so on. Did anyone think that the new Spider-Man movie would not take advantage of this? If there were any doubts, they were just put to rest: other Marvel characters will play a role in the next Spidey adventure.

Everybody loves a clown, so why don’t you? Well, probably because the movies have taught us that clowns tend to be insane murderers at best and child-devouring supernatural entities at worst. Anyone willing to put on a red nose and a wig, cinema says, is someone you should not trust.
But hey, at least they make pretty solid fodder for horror movies and it’s starting to look like 2016 will be a banner year for the “evil clowns kill a bunch of people” subgenre. 31 and Clown, both about evil circus folk and both represented by noteworthy filmmakers, have landed release dates. Nightmares do come true!

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have struck a deal for a worldwide IMAX release in theaters when the film arrives in the summer of 2017. Read More »
