Oh how things can quickly change. Back in August, just days before the D23 Expo was supposed to start, Sony had announced that Spider-Man would no longer be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, citing Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige’s growing responsibilities at Disney+. The move was shocking to say the least and was met with an uproar from fans who believed that Sony needed Feige’s help.
Now it looks like Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will websling in the MCU once again thanks to a last-minute deal that was signed between Disney and Sony. More on the report here below.
There’s no doubt that Spider-Man fans were holding on to the hope that Sony and Disney could find some sort of common ground after they broke up. Sony seemed to place the blame on Disney for being too greedy, while star Tom Hollandremained optimistic about the situation.
However, at a recent entertainment summit, Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra said “for the moment the door is closed.” More on the report below.
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Marvel Studios, which began with 2008’s Iron Man and has since become one of the premiere movie studios, building on its brand of superheroes. And now to commemorate all of that, Marvel Studios will release all 20 of their films in IMAX theaters. This Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival will be only for a limited run, with the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe presented on certain days grouped by theme.
The event was announced via Marvel Entertainment’s official YouTube channel; watch that video and check out the screening dates and themes here below.
Marvel Studios has a problem with leaks. And if you know anything about the studio, you know who is doing the leaking. Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland has somewhat of a reputation of spoiling things. It may not ruin the viewing experience, but if Marvel wants to keep things a secret, they best not give Holland any information. We all know that there will be another webslinging adventure, but we’re still unsure how that is even possible given what has happened to Peter Parker in Avengers: Infinity War. But it looks like we at least know the title of the next Spider-Man film.
According to Holland, the next film will be called Spider-Man: Far From Home, a title that makes sense and may have a duel meaning to it. Check out Holland’s confirmation in the video here below.
Looking ahead to Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you will see that Marvel Studios has a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel scheduled for a July 2019 release. It is said that the follow-up film will be a more global adventure than its predecessor. And now we may have an idea of who Spidey may be fighting. According to various reports, Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play Mysterio. Michael Keaton is also rumored to return, leading to the speculation that we may see the Sinister Six.
