Sony’s Marvel Universe—yeah, that’s still a terrible name, right?—is making some big moves lately. While the Venom movie recently found its host, the studio’s other planned film, starring Spidey supporting characters Black Cat and Silver Sable, might have just landed itself a director in the form of Gina…
We got two new trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming this morning, and while there wasn’t a ton of new info, there was still enough that we wanted to point it out—first and foremost, that Spidey’s excitement to be fighting his fellow superheroes is just straight-up lovable.
John Boyega discusses Finn’s new place in the Resistance in The Last Jedi. The stars of Game of Thrones say there’ll be a quicker pace to the next season. Plus, early rumors for the next Justice League Dark director, and new Wonder Woman posters. To me, my Spoilers!
We’ve got one more good look at Spider-Man: Homecoming before it comes out, and this latest trailer has a lot of new scenes: a little from the big set pieces and a lot of references to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)
The big superhero news of the day is that Tom Hardy will play Venom. To announce the news, Sony tweeted that the film would be part of “Sony’s Marvel Universe” but that sounds weird. Maybe even a little sad. Guys, we need to help them come up with a better name.
Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Homecoming composer Michael Giacchino (Up) just put up a lovely 30-second video on Twitter of the orchestra currently recording the score to the film. They’re playing a wonderful arrangement of the classic theme song from the ‘70s Spider-Man cartoon, and it’s so good we can’t stop listening…
In the first clip from Spider-Man Homecoming, Peter Parker’s best friend is us.
Ben Reilly has had a hell of a rough life. First, there was the whole business where he eventually learned he was a clone of Peter Parker (and then died saving him). Then he got resurrected years later, horrifically tortured, and turned to supervillainy. Now, he’s back in action as the Scarlet Spider... but he’s not…
While the chances are very slim that Spider-Man and the Punisher will ever cross paths directly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can take comfort in the idea that actor Tom Holland played a significant role behind-the-scenes in helping Jon Bernthal get cast as Frank Castle.
Miles Morales might be swinging around alongside Peter Parker these days as Spider-Man, but before that, he came from an alternate reality: Earth-1610, the “Ultimate Marvel” universe. Five years after the company first pondered the question, a new comic will answer who the hell the “original” Miles Morales of…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's round up of the best toys we’ve seen all week. This time we’ve got tons of new Lego minifigures, the most amazing Magneto cape, entirely unrelated magnetic building blocks, a spectacularly poseable Spider-Man: Homecoming figure, and yes, the best grin on a Han Solo action figure ever.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man’s suit is built by Tony Stark, which means it has tons of new features and upgrades—more like Iron Man’s get-up than the Spider-suit we’re all familiar with. On our set visit, we learned a lot more about the superhero’s new outfit.
When you’re the sixth Spider-Man movie in 15 years, you better be able to distinguish yourself from what came before. In the case of Spider-Man: Homecoming, everything is different. Almost nothing you remember from the previous films will return.
By mentioning one of the most infamous moments in the comic book’s history, you can bring a grimace to any Spider-Man reader’s face in just three words: One More Day. Sore fans are still begging for the highly controversial storyline that removed Peter Parker’s marriage to longtime love Mary Jane Watson to be…
Earlier today, we got a great big look at Sony and Marvel’s collaboration on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now, at CinemaCon 2017, Homecoming producer and former Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal is telling the press that the two studios might not work together again after the already-planned sequel. Whaaa?
When Civil War chose to lay the groundwork for Spider-Man’s costume at the feet of Tony Stark rather than Peter Parker, we all knew it meant there was going to be some techy-upgrades to the classic Spidey Spandex. But new footage from Homecoming gives Peter a new trick up his... well, not-sleeve that’s straight out of…
One thing no one ever wants to see again is Spider-Man’s origin. We’ve got it. And maybe you didn’t get it from the trailer, but Spider-Man Homecoming is a whole new kind of Spider-Man. It’s not about his physical origin, it’s about his mental one. And the teaser poster hammers that point home.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's new weekly series gathering the latest and shiniest pop culture toys and merchandise around. This week: a very fancy take on Peter Parker’s low-rent Spider-Man: Homecoming look, a giant Optimus Prime, and a fully armed and operational battle teapot. Let’s take a look!
This summer, a new Spider-Man makes his film debut. Next fall, a film focusing on his frequent opponent Venom should be hitting theaters. And now, a third film based in the Spider-Man universe is in the works, this one starring both Black Cat and Silver Sable.
