Hot off its debut on some talkshow tonight, the trailer for the highly anticipated co production between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios has landed online. Check out the trailer for Spider-Man Homecoming below :
Its not official , but yeah Im calling it THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN
Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman has landed a key role in the “The Spectacular Spider-Man” starring Tom Holland. She is apparently one of Disney’s contracted kids. I have no clue who she is or what she has done. Thats due to me not watching the disney channel. But I do know that Disney kids have a 90% higher chance of falling completely off the rails than your average kids.
The character she is supposed to be playing is also an unknown. IMDB says her character is simply called Michelle. Now Marvel/Disney are known for keeping their secrets somewhat under wraps, so this might be a fake name. Its also very possible that the character is just simply a throwaway character with little or no bearing on the plot. The actress is 19 years old and I’m guessing she is playing a popular high school kid who just happens to look like a 19 year old glam model.
Its gonna be interesting to see if this incarnation of Peter Parker will be the geeky kid from the comics. The Toby version simply skipped the whole thing really, and that last british dude who looked like James Dean, skate boarded and got the hottest chick in school SURE AS SHIT didn’t resemble this dork :
With the issue of bullying always being relevant It would be kind of nice to actually see this played out over at least 2 movies. Show us that Parker is unpopular. Show us that he is bullied. Not only bullied for being the smartest kid , but also physically bullied , even though after the spider-bite he could trash the entire football team by himself, but has to restrain himself from doing so. Show us how he struggles with these issues. Don’t just brush them off by reducing YEARS of comics into 5 minutes of screentime, and then ruin that by giving him a goddamn skateboard and the prettiest girl around. The reason Parker/Spider-Man became a beloved character was because the readers could relate to him. Don’t just brush that off AGAIN. Keep him an unpopular , bullied , awkward kid for the entire series ! Looks don´t matter right ? Its what’s on the inside that counts and all that other crap we get told that isn’t true etc
It can’t be that hard can it ? Im sure those guys who wrote VACATION can pull it off……….
Another thing is what The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit tweeted specifically about Zendaya’s casting. That is part of the studio’s plan to go heavily multi-cultural with the new film.
“Sources tell me that Marvel/Sony has been looking to go heavily non-white with the SPIDER-MAN supporting cast.”
Now If that is true I just wish I could believe that it was because they genuinely wanted diversity. But that ain’t the case. Because then they could have gone with Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker and actually made a difference . After the fake outrage from ” black twitter” about Will Smith not winning every Oscar this year , I’m guessing we will see a lot of this in upcoming projects.
It wouldn’t surprise me if they made Flash Thompson into a black kid who plays basketball , as opposed to him being a red haired white kid who plays football. Point is he is the worst bully in school, so yeah, that would be a HUGE mistake. But I’m certain we will see it. Previous genius ideas like this was making The Kingpin of Crime , and Electro black. How nice they included them for diversity. Both villains of course. Bravo to you all. Its such a bold thing to do!!
We shall see in the not so distant future Spider.Friends ! A co-production between Sony and Marvel Studios, The SPECTACULAR Spider-Man will be swinging into theaters on July 7, 2017. And I will be watching the 2D version, because 3D sucks, and has never improved a single film i’ve watched in 3D. So there !
Like , share and follow on all those social media things !!
Many sites have speculated on what the new incarnation of Marvel’s Spider Man will look like. The first appearance on screen is rumored to be in the upcoming Captain America : Civil War
No footage has yet to be shown of the wall crawler , but the stars of Civil War have namedropped Tom Hollands performance, giving much credence to the rumor that he will indeed appear in the summer movie.
Another site online which caters to the hispanic community ( i guess) wrote a story a while back claiming they might have uncovered the new look through a business card of a Marvel editor. And unlike the previous three or four times this site has claimed to have “proof” of the new suit , they have yet to apologise for this latest “article” .
Me here at BSS was going through the junk mail of one of my gimmick e-mail accounts recently and was thrilled to discover a possible picture of what Tom Hollands suit might look like.
Here it is :
Now I know what you must be thinking. That’s just Tom Holland in a suit. And you would be correct . It is just Tom Holland in a suit. But the question is : Is it his Spider Man suit ??
The answer is most likely NO. And when I get confirmation on that, I might update this whole post, and issue an apology. I probably won’t do much else than add “Updated” to the headline though, and repost it again with an added ” sorry i was wrong ” in the smallest print I can use.
Meanwhile however, I will give you a rough idea of what I believe the suit might end up looking like :
Stellar isn’t it.
Make mine Marvel.
The movie that struck fear into Warners/DC Batman V Superman has debuted its first trailer !! Have a look see:
Kicking off Marvels Phase 3, the cast reads more like Avengers 3 than Captain America 3. The film returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.Paul Rudd will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man.
The cast of the film also includes Chadwick Boseman (42, Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (“Revenge”) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds, Bourne Ultimatum) as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey). And not to forget the first appearance by Tom Holland as Spider-Man in an MCU film
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
Coming to theaters April 29th 2016 !! Well, its May 6th in the United States…….. sucks being you.
Update : THR reports that Tomei might also cameo as Aunt May in next year’s Captain America: Civil War before the 2017 Spider-Man. So Tomei and Downey Jr back together maybe ??
Sources tell Variety that Marisa Tomei is the choice to play Aunt May in the next installment of the “Spider-Man” franchise.
Sony and Marvel had no comment on the casting.
While insiders could not say where things stood in the deal-making process, they have added that an offer was made late last week for the Oscar-winning actress to join Tom Holland, who was recently tapped to play the web-slinging superhero.
Marvel and Sony recently hand-picked Holland to play Spider-Man after months of meetings and screen tests with eager young actors, in addition to selecting “Cop Car” helmer Jon Watts to direct the pic.
The studios are still in the process of finding a writer to join Watts in the screenwriting process but insiders explained that the top brass also wanted to lock down other actors who would appear in multiple films so schedules could be worked out before shooting commences next year.
Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal will produce the pic, and though Holland is expected to first appear in “Captain America: Civil War” in a cameo appearance as Parker, it seems more likely that Tomei will not appear until the first “Spider-Man” film bows on July 28, 2017.
The job marks a new direction for Tomei, who generally sticks to dramas like “The Ides of March” and “The Wrestler,” or romantic comedies like “Crazy Stupid Love” and “My Cousin Vinny” (which landed her an Oscar), rather than studio tentpoles.
So I never thought that I would have the urge to fuck whoever plays Aunt May in a Spider-Man movie. But gawddamned if Marvel Just doesn’t keep surprising me.
What say you Benders ?? This guy for Uncle Ben ??
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that, following a lengthy casting process, british actor Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in their next Spider-Man film. And he will not be gay. The film is set to hit theaters on July 28. 2017. Jon Watts will direct the feature.
“It’s a big day here at Sony. Kevin, Amy and their teams have done an incredible job,” Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, said. “The Marvel process is very thorough, and that’s why their results are so outstanding. I’m confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.”
“As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life,” Kevin Feige added “We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring.”
Amy Pascal also said, “Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Holland also fit the bit of a person over the age of 18 that could still play the role of a teenager for years to come. Insiders said that at the end of the day, the studio could not afford to run into problems revolving around the child labor laws that would only allow their actor to shoot for so many hours in a day and by going older, they are able to avoid such issues.
As for Watts, while he wasn’t quite as well known as the other directors meeting, his recent work on the Sundance film “Cop Car” earned him rave reviews at Sundance that put him on a list of directors studios wanted to work with. The film also showed his ability to get the most out of teenage actors like the one that would be played by Spider-Man and while Kevin Bacon is associated most with “Cop Car,” it is the two teenage boys that steal the film.
And Avi Arad is nutz, and has no clue.
