Do you remember which eye Nick Fury, as played by Samuel L. Jackson, covers with a patch in the movies?Wait, or is it his right?No, left, we're pretty sure.)Late on Sunday, Jackson shared on Instagram an image posted to Reddit that shows two photos of Fury with different eyes covered.The images are promoting the new Spider-Man: Far From Home movie, and it looks like a graphic designer decided to flip one of the images.In true Jackson form, he captioned the photo with some characteristic swearing, writing, "Uhhhhhhh, What In The Actual FUCK IS GOING ON HERE???!!!"

Peter Ramsey directed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but he was earlier involved in a much different superhero project.As a storyboard artist, Ramsey worked with JJ Abrams on his (wild) unmade Superman movie, Superman: Flyby.Recently, Ramsey took to Twitter to share some storyboards he made for the film, which was conceived and then abandoned in the early 2000s.As you can imagine, from an artist and creator as talented as Ramsey, they’re pretty great.Much better than the script they’re inspired by.Some storyboards from a version of SUPERMAN written by JJ Abrams way way back in the day.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits cinemas on 2nd July, tying up the third phase of the MCU and leaving us in the dark about what's coming over the next couple of years.The series that gave last year's animated movie its name, with a multiverse-spanning adventure of spider-people.Of course this leads to plenty of panic, crime, and all sorts of other shenanigans Peter has to go and deal with all on his lonesome.But as ever, there are nefarious individuals working behind the scenes, and nothing they're up to is good.If you want to start from the beginning you can, and if you want to skip ahead to Peter's final battle you can do that too.If you'd rather pick up where Miles suits up, that's also an option.

The animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a huge hit in 2018, so it should come as no surprise that a sequel is coming.But it's always nice to get confirmation.Producer Amy Pascal did just that this week, telling io9 that more Spidey is on the way."We are definitely hard at work on the sequel," Pascal said."You can expect another movie."No date was given for the second film's release.
After the Oscar-winning success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was little doubt a sequel would be coming.And not just a sequel – spinoffs and more, too.Speaking with Gizmodo about Spider-Man: Far From Home on Wednesday, producer Amy Pascal gave us a small but encouraging update.“We are definitely hard at work on the sequel,” Pascal said via phone from London.“You can expect another movie.”Way back in November, news broke that Joaquim Dos Santos, who worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender and Voltron: Legendary Defender, would be directing a Spider-Verse sequel with David Callaham (The Expendables, Wonder Woman 1984) writing.

Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ president/adaptation guru, told ComicBook.com that Marvel talks to Reeves about “almost every film we make.” For his part, Reeves said that he wouldn’t mind stepping into Wolverine’s yellow spandex now that Disney controls the X-Men and Hugh Jackman is done with the character.That probably won’t happen — Reeves is four years older than Jackman, and Marvel will probably want to go with someone younger — but that’s fine.We already know that Reeves is a pretty thoughtful guy, and we can easily picture him cruising the cosmos while dealing with cosmic threats and exploring what it means to be human.Most of Spider-Man’s major villains have already hit the big screen, and this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to introduce one more.Just imagine the visuals: Keanu Reeves decked out in a flowing lion vest, leopard-skin pants, and a goatee, chucking spears and shooting arrows at Spider-Man.John Wick proved that Keanu can make the switch from quiet dignity to murderous rage in a snap, and if Marvel and Sony want to bring Kraven to theaters, there’s really only one choice.
In case you didn't hear the thrilling Spider-Man news that Marvel has been teasing us with for days and getting the internet whipped up in a frenzy for, J.J. Abrams and his son [insert name here] are writing a comic...I don't know who let all these crickets in, but they're noisy little buggers.The countdown to the reveal began with a mysterious number four that had everyone losing their shit over the prospect of a Sam Raimi Spider-Man 4 comic book, amongst other things.The other things didn't cover this damp fart of announcement however.The internet hasn't let us down though, and people have been very upfront with their thoughts on the news - which you can read more about here - and we've rounded up our favourites for you to peruse at your leisure below, while you feel all smug and superior.I don't know who I'm supposed to be making fun of anymore, I'm sorry.
Marvel created a tangled web with a Twitter countdown in the last few days, but time's up and the secret's out -- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams teamed up with his 20-year-old son Henry to write a Spider-Man comic book miniseries.It'll kick off in September and introduce new villain Cadaverous to the webslinger's rogues gallery.Cadaverous will cause problems Spidey, his alter ego Peter Parker and his beloved Mary Jane Watson, according to the New York Times.The Arbrames are working with Sara Pichelli, the first artist to depict Miles Morales, and colorist Dave Stewart on the five-issue series.The excited father and son team revealed the project in a video.It's just so exciting, I can't believe it's happening … thank you, so much," says a nervous Henry.
And teaming up with Ultimate Spider-Man artist and Miles Morales co-creator Sara Pichelli to do so.After sending the internet into a Sam-Raimi-based headspin earlier this week, Marvel has revealed the grand new Spider-comic it was counting down to: Spider-Man.No really, that’s what it’s called.While the name might be basic, the creative team is anything but, because it’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams, partnering with his 20-year-old son Henry, to tell a new tale for the webslinger and Mary Jane Watson.As revealed to the New York Times, Spider-Man—which features art from Sara Pichelli, colors from Dave Stewart, and covers from Olivier Coipel—will be a five-part miniseries.Story details are currently being kept under wraps, but the comic will introduce a new villain called Cadaverous, and Abrams promises that the series will show Peter Parker “in a way you haven’t seen him before.”
Current Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, whose Spider-Man: Far From Home is out soon, says he'd "love" to act in a live-action Spider-verse movie with former Spidey actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield."Of course, I would love to make a movie with those guys, it would be so cool," Holland said in the below interview with film critic Jake Hamilton."It would be amazing, it would be really, really cool.And it's something that the fans really want.So whether Marvel and Sony decide to do that, it's up to them."There'd be an age difference, of course.
There was no big, crazy reveal Wednesday during preview night, no major stunners Thursday (though seeing the new Doctor on stage was wonderful), and Friday passed with little to get excited about.Surprisingly it was DC that brought the fire: Details on its new streaming service, tons of new trailers and tidbits about new DC Extended Universe films that excited even this MCU fan.Last year, the absence of a Saturday night Marvel Studios panel or a look at the final season of Game of Thrones was deeply felt.But now, with reports indicating Marvel will be returning to San Diego after last year's hiatus, we can safely say the 50th Comic-Con is going to be anything but a snooze.In an interview this week with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said we can expect Marvel to announce more on the future of the MCU after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, but was noncommittal on whether Marvel would officially hit SDCC.He definitely wasn't sharing what the studio would bring to Comic-Con or to its own D23 event in August:
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies hitting theaters fast -- we've had Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame already this year and Spider-Man: Far From Home hits next week -- we've all struggled to recall classic lines at some point (especially if we've marathoned the whole lot).Developer Sean Lennaerts answered our prayers by putting every utterance into the MCU Bible, which organizes each line as if it's scripture -- with the number in its individual series, the series title and timestamp where it appears in the movie.So you can learn some of those half-remember Korg lines from Thor Ragnarok with ease."Well, I tried to start a revolution, but didn't print enough pamphlets."Or maybe a little Thanos grandstanding.IV Avengers 18:47, 94:50 and 149:49)

Doctor Strange may have said that they are at the endgame, but for Marvel Studios that is hardly the case.Although it has almost been two months since the final Avengers film (that we know so far) premiered, it will surprisingly return to the big screen for a short while.Not just for those who haven’t seen the film yet but for those willing to pay and sit for three hours again just to catch the new post-credits scenes.Marvel Studios has become both famous and notorious for its mid-credits and post-credits scenes.Those have been praised and lambasted for what is basically marketing for the next film.Regardless, moviegoers have expected such things from Marve movies that they were both shocked and disappointed at Endgame’s lack of a single one.

It's almost summer, and Peter Parker is going on vacation.Spider-Man: Far From Home opens soon, and the embargo on social media reactions lifted Wednesday afternoon.The film doesn't open until next month, but it's already looking good for those who are still in Marvel withdrawal after Avengers: Endgame.CNET's Sean Keane called the film "pretty much the perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue -- reminding us that the MCU goes on in a joyous, emotionally fulfilling ride."Brandon Davis, of CNET sister site ComicBook.com, also raved about the film, teasing that it's "huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways."Davis also urged viewers to stay through the film's closing credits for a couple of "brilliant sequences."

Most of us have, at one point or another, felt like a total badass, only to walk into a situation and find yourself wholly outclassed and under-prepared.If only all of us could call in a favor with a secret and well-funded government agency to help get us out of that situation.That's precisely what happens to a young Peter Parker (you know, Spider-Man?)in a new short from Audi, released on Wednesday.In it, Parker and his friend Ned Leeds show up to a science fair having designed and built a totally legit 10-kilowatt electric motor but are confronted with lasers, smoke and lasers and smoke together when they walk in the door.To up their chances of winning, Parker calls his government handler and asks to borrow something called "2025" which turns out to be the Audi E-Tron GT concept that debuted in Los Angeles last year.

With$44 million separating it from the worldwide box office record, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame is heading back to theaters with new footage.The studio is clearly hoping to knock current record-holder Avatar out of the top spot and top the James Cameron film’s $2.78 billion run.Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige indicated that the film will return to theaters June 28 with some new footage to reward anyone who helps make it the world’s highest-grossing movie of all time.During a Spider-Man: Far From Home press event, Feige described the extra elements that the re-release of Avengers: Endgame will feature.“[It’s] not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie,” he told ScreenRant.“If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises.
Warning: Possible spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home ahead.Who's ready for a new Avenger?In a Chinese television ad for Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spidey (Tom Holland) seems to invite Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) into the superhero group.Thor is off-world, Doctor Strange is unavailable and Nick Fury doesn't even want to hear Captain Marvel's name mentioned.This isn't the first time a Chinese ad has offered up a little more info about Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio, than the US versions.A Chinese trailer spotted in May shows Mysterio advising Spider-Man about the danger of a hero's path.
Not all number fours are created equal.No other details were mentioned, but fans drew the obvious conclusion that it was Spider-Man related.Anyway, from there things got wild.Others, deliberately ignoring that the tease came from Marvel Comics and not Marvel Studios, salivated at the idea of some sort of Fantastic Four presence in the MCU.And then there was the wildest prevailing rumour: Marvel was secretly planning to adapt Sam Raimi’s unfilmed ideas for his fourth and final Spider-Man movie into a comic book.The evidence, weirdly enough, started making a modicum of sense, in a sort of “Charlie Day in front of conspiracy whiteboard” way when you started working back from the assumption that Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4: The Movie: The Comic Book was A Thing That Was Happening.
Coming out of the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show last week, one of our stories had significantly more traffic than anything else.I bring this up to illustrate a point.At the same time, it’s also not going to appeal to the 9 million people buying Marvel’s Spider-Man in its first couple of months of release.Players are so passionate because the game-development market is broken and no one is serving them.The time and money that goes toward a mid-tier game with a small-but-dedicated audience is time and money that could go toward the next Call of Duty or League of Legends.“If I look at the top games that people are playing on Xbox One today, many of those games are three or four years old,” Spencer said during an interview with Giant Bomb in 2017.
Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo teased their latest with carefully arranged furniture.We picked it apart, endlessly.Now, Marvel has another web for us to unravel.On Sunday, the official Marvel Twitter account presented a picture of a "4" spun from spiderweb, with a caption saying only, " MarvelComics."Spider-Man: Far From Home is due to swing in June 28.Given it's the second in Tom Holland's run at the hero, it seems premature to announce he's on track for a fourth.
