Sony Pictures Announces New Spider-Man, Director

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced that they have found their new Spider-Man, 19-year-old British actor Tom Holland. Holland is currently rumoured to be playing the webhead in both the next reboot (sigh) and “Captain America: Civil War” (gasp!).

Tom Holland

Chosen to direct is director Jon Watts, whose recent film “Cop Car” made its debut at Sundance this past year.

The next Spider-Man movie, which is as yet unnamed, will be released in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017.

The news broke at Houston’s Comicpalooza, where Agent Carter herself, Hayley Atwell sat down with fans at a Q&A styled panel. In addition to mentioning an upcoming set visit to the “Captain America: Civil War” set (but not clarifying whether this was going to be a cameo or just a friendly visit), Atwell also mentioned that “Agent Carter” has been picked up for a second season by ABC, and with 10 new episodes (the first season was only 8, amazing episodes though they were). The new season takes place is 1940s Los Angeles instead of New York, and the premiere date hasn’t been set yet, but you can watch footage from the panel below:

C2E2 2015: Why Cosplay Matters (Plus Pictures)

Howdy, folks!

A few of us Fangirls got to spend some time at the Comic Con and Entertainment Expo at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention centre this past weekend, attending panels, meeting nerd icons (Stan Lee!), and buying entirely too much memorabilia for which I have no space to display…

*Ahem*

She was the best Gambit at the Con. SHE HAD THE EYES!

She was the best Gambit at the Con. SHE HAD THE EYES!

But the main thing that I enjoy at cons is cosplay. This was my first convention in a while and, while I have a bitchin’ Wonder Woman costume from Halloween, I didn’t dress up, myself. Rather, I love people-watching, photographing some of the most elaborate, the gender-swapped, the creatively altered, and just plain cutest little superheroes and villains roaming the sprawling expanse of Nerd Mecca.

Once Upon a Time S4E6 – “The Snow Queen” PLUS Another Reference to Marvel?

I'm way more concerned about Ingrid than the kidnapper, frankly. That bitch crazy.

I’m way more concerned about Ingrid than the kidnapper, frankly. That bitch crazy.

 

The episode opens with a young trio of sisters (Ingrid, et cetera) frolicking about a lush hillside, chasing a kite, which gets caught in a tree and torn. A man suddenly decides to kidnap and ransom them, but young Ingrid’s powers manifest in that moment and she accidentally kills the man. As she freaks out, her sisters still take her side and decide to keep her secret. They split the ribbon of the broken kite and claim it as a symbol of their sisterhood. Also, super crazy about young Ingrid being that little psycho Lizzy from “The Walking Dead.”

RDJ to Appear in Cap 3 In Huge “FUCK YOU” to WB’s Batman v. Superman

Ah. Ah, this makes me feel better. After the boiling rage brought on by the confirmation that Wonder Woman’s first movie appearance is going to feature her shitty New 52 origin, a bit of good news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Also, maybe even a little bit of unusual schadenfreude on my part.

So, is Iron Man 4 a Go?

Lately, Robert Downey Jr. has been very shifty with respect to the future of the franchise. He is contractually obligated to do Avengers: Age of Ultron (duh) and Avengers 3, but he has also tended to sound like more solo Iron Man films are off of the table, what with being a relatively new father, getting older, etc.

But a recent clip from Ellen has us thinking that the arc reactor still has some spark in it.

MOVIE REVIEW: “Guardians of the Galaxy”

Let me start off by saying, as a fan of “Parks and Recreation,” it was delightful seeing Andy Dwyer in space.

Nah, J/K.

Although there are certainly a good number of goofball moments, Chris Pratt’s performance was a great balance of criminal, hero, dork, and suave muthafucka. His Starlord really rather perfectly captures the qualities of the Everyman.

And then there’s this.
