Sony’s plans to reboot the Spider-Man franchise are coming into clearer focus. According to new reports, the new film will center on a teenaged Peter Parker — not Miles Morales or another character as some have speculated.
What will be different this time around, though, is we won’t be starting with an origin story. At this point, even Marvel Studios figures there’s no need to rehash the same old tale. Read Kevin Feige‘s comments about the Spider-Man reboot Peter Parker after the jump. Read More »

An Avengers junket wouldn’t be an Avengers junket without a big surprise. In 2012, it was the reveal that the cast was filming one more scene. In 2015, for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kevin Feige premiered the new trailer for Ant-Man, which went online Monday. Watch it here.
Now that you’ve seen the new trailer, we talked to the Marvel Studios President about the Peyton Reed film. With a slot after Avengers: Age of Ultron but before Captain America: Civil War, many fans have wondered what – if any – significant Ant-Man would have in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, according to Feige, a lot. He says the film is actually a “different kind of culmination to Phase Two” and is quite important in setting a tone that links Age of Ultron and Civil War.

For a few moments last year, Adam McKay almost directed Ant-Man. At least, that’s how the situation seemed to be developing. After Edgar Wright left the project, star Paul Rudd called his friend McKay to work on the film. The pair worked together on the script and McKay was considered to helm the project, too. Ultimately, that didn’t happen, and Peyton Reed came on board.
According to a new rumor though, McKay must have left a big impression on Marvel. Rumor has it he’s now in line to direct a new Marvel movie, something he’s been vocal about wanting. Which movie? We don’t know know yet but you know we’ll speculate below. 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 »

One of the big announcements in Marvel’s press event this morning was the reveal that the third Captain America film is Captain America: Civil War. That’s based on a comic book storyline in which Iron Man and Captain America are at odds over the idea of government oversight and hero registration. So how does Marvel do a Civil War storyline on screen when the company doesn’t have a few key elements of the comic incarnation — namely Spider-Man and secret identities? Asked about the story, Kevin Feige explained how the Marvel Civil War movie will work. Read More »
