Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man is the third big-screen iteration of the character in just 15 years, but any skepticism fans may have had seemed to disappear the moment he swung onscreen in Captain America: Civil War. At that point, the question went from “do we really need another Spider-Man reboot?” to “so when will we get to see that Spider-Man reboot?”
Marvel being Marvel, of course, they already had plans in place to open Spider-Man: Homecoming in summer 2017. But that’s still months away. Fortunately, the wait to see the first footage from the film is much shorter. Find out when we can expect the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer premiere below. Read More »
Despite how long Marvel Studios tapdanced around the prospect of Spider-Man appearing in Captain America: Civil War, we were certain the webslinger was going to show up in the movie. However, one thing we didn’t know about until around the time the movie hit theaters was that the post-credits scene for the movie featured a tease for Spider-Man: Homecoming. And that scene almost featured a more overt tease for what’s to come in the Spidey franchise reboot.
Some concept art from the visual effects company Perception, who created the digital readout projected by Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) webshooters that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) gave him, reveals that there was almost a secret message that the genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist left for the webslinger. Find out about Tony Stark’s secret message to Spider-Man after the jump. Read More »
Rumors have pegged the actress/singer Zendaya as playing Peter Parker’s usual love interest Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the name Michelle that she’s been given on call sheets and by director Jon Watts has been deemed to be nothing but misdirection. However, for those who don’t buy the overt cover-up, Zendaya has just thrown out more details about her character that certainly don’t make her sound like the Mary Jane Watson we know. And to go along with these new details, a rumor has surfaced pegging who might actually be Peter Parker’s love interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Honestly, when word came that Zendaya could be playing Mary Jane Watson, I was a little disappointed. No, I wasn’t upset because a traditionally white character may be played by a black actress, because that’s ridiculous. But I was disappointed to hear that Mary Jane was going to end up becoming the Spider-Man Homecoming love interest again so soon. However, if Zendaya’s statements from yesterday are to be believed, that might not be the case.

Judging from Peter Parker’s brief appearance in Captain America: Civil War, it seems like the Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures experiment is shaping up to be a success. Spider-Man: Homecoming just completed principal photography and won’t hit theaters until Summer 2017, but a sequel is reportedly already in the works. When Sony made a deal with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that deal was only for one standalone movie and an early appearance in Civil War. But it now seems like Sony may be ready for more. So what does this mean for the upcoming third Avengers film? Will we see Spider-Man in Infinity War?

These days, Tom Holland is best known as the new Spider-Man. But in between his web-slinging exploits in Captain America: Civil War and next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, you’ll get to catch his work in a very different kind of movie. Only you won’t actually be able to see him or hear him.
As revealed by director J.A. Bayona, Holland helped out with A Monster Calls, the cancer drama that nearly drowned TIFF in tears. However, he didn’t have a traditional role per se. As it turns out, Holland was a stand-in for the monster, who is voiced by Liam Neeson. Read More »
