spider-man marvel

Update: Predictably, a Change.org petition about this is now making the rounds. Get the details below.

Yesterday, the internet collectively lost its mind over the news that Spider-Man may be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Endgame) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) are among the many who have weighed in with their thoughts on the matter, and you can read their takes below. Plus, there’s a protest brewing that might result in Sony Pictures having a very…interesting Halloween.

Hobbs and Shaw Cameos

If you went into Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw expecting to get some cameos from the cast of the primary Fast and Furious franchise, then you walked away mostly disappointed.

detective pikachu fake movie

On Tuesday, Detective Pikachu star Ryan Reynolds posted a link to a “leaked” version of Detective Pikachu which had been posted to YouTube under the channel “Inspector Pikachu.” In his tweet, he called attention to the film’s official Twitter account as if flagging the video. “Um…ATTN,” he wrote in his tweet.
