The first Once Upon a Time in Hollywood clip just popped up online, featuring a stuttering Leonardo DiCaprio, a too cool for school Brad Pitt, and a flustered Kurt Russell. The striking thing here is how relatively low-key this clip is compared to the energetic trailers we’ve seen so far. Perhaps Sony wants to save all the wild stuff for the movie itself. Watch the clip from Quentin Tarantino‘s latest below.

Donald Glover has had a longstanding relationship with the character of Spider-Man. A viral online campaign to get him cast as the next webslinger after Tobey Maguire was so popular that the actor has basically become a part of Spider-Man lore himself.

And, of course, there was that cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
But what about its sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home? Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers revealed that they initially planned to bring back Glover’s character from Homecoming to the sequel, but the cameo was ultimately scrapped.

Despite having three different Spider-Man film franchises, the stories and villains we’ve seen brought to the big screen haven’t had as much variety as you’d think. Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man saga revolved heavily around Peter Parker’s relationship with Mary Jane Watson, his complicated friendship with Harry Osborn and his villainous father Norman Osborn, and The Amazing Spider-Man series tread similar territory, albeit with Gwen Stacy in place of Mary Jane and a much more ambitious set-up for the Sinister Six that never came to fruition.
But when it comes to the new Spider-Man franchise, we’ve seen plenty of stories that were never possible, and that’s largely thanks to the webslinger’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And according to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, that trend will continue in the next chapter of the Spider-Man series, which will adapt a Peter Parker story that has “never been done before on film.”
