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!).
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.
Word is out that our favourite Web Head’s Sony movie franchise is about to get some help from Marvel Studios, and this has most nerds speculating that Spidey just might be swinging into the “Civil War” movie due out in a few years!
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.
We are just going to ignore how late this review is; in last issue, the X-Men celebrated the return of Nightcrawler. Mystique crashed the party to find out where Azazel was so she could kill him. Which lead to a crazy family meeting and Mystique offering Azazel a job.
In honors of Father’s Day, the ladies of the TFP wanted to spotlight some of our favorite dads in the DC and Marvel Universe.
OR, “You’ll Believe a (Spider-)Man Can Cry!”
Spoilers Ensue. Please don’t give me crap if you read the article but didn’t want to be spoiled. Only read if you’ve seen the movie or give zero fucks.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Opened this past weekend to a strong, but hardly record-breaking, 92 million dollars. On Thursday, three of the TFP Fangirls went to go see it together, enthused for another Marvel movie, especially after the awesomeness that was “Captain America: the Winter Soldier.”
We walked out a bit… confused.
Spider-Man movies, including the Tobey Maguire films of yore, have always been entertaining, at least. Andrew Garfield’s second appearance as the Web Head was not different. In fact, his Peter Parker and Spidey gave some particularly entertaining one-liners, comebacks, and banter.
But he was also batshit crazy.
They have released the first official images of the Green Goblin, while I can say that I like the look of the Green Goblin. You can see how sinister the character is just by looking at him. It is also obvious that he took some form of serum to make him look like this.
The Green Goblin definitely looks different from the way Harry Osborn normally looks. While you can still tell that the Green Goblin and Harry Osborn are same actor, there are a lot of significant physical changes, which includes the loss of the emo hair. I do appreciate all the physical changes they made to Dane DeHaan, so that the Green Goblin looks completely different; the hair, the skin, teeth, and even the nose.
Now that I am done talking about the look of the Goblin, lets talk about how Harry Osborn is the Green Goblin. We all know that Harry takes over the Green Goblin after his father dies. Norman Osborn has to be the Green Goblin first, by the looks of it they are skipping that part entirely, especially based on this picture:
We all know that Green Goblin is the one who pushes Gwen Stacy, thus causing Peter Parker to kill her while he haves her. The Goblin that did that was Norman Osborn, not Harry Osborn. I guess this is not that big of a change but the death of Norman Osborn is what causes Harry Osborn to become the next Green Goblin. I am guessing that Harry is going to become the Green Goblin the same way his dad did and go after Spider-Man for the same reason. I guess we will see how this plays out in 2 months, but I will admit I am not fully happy about Harry being the first Green Goblin.
Sony has released the final Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer.
I don’t know about the rest of you but this makes me even more excited for the movie. I like how we get to see more of Peter and Harry’s friendship. I am really liking Electro and what I have seen of the Green Goblin.
The movie will be in theaters May 2nd, I hope you will check it out with us.
