Mommy And Daddy Have Made Up And Spider-Man Is Back in The MCU

We will leave it up to interpretation who is “mommy” and who is “daddy” but nonetheless it is all around good news because Sony and Marvel Studios/Disney have made amends and the co-produced 3rd SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING film will happen. Amy Pascal will also once again co-produce through Pascal Pictures which she has done over the past two films.

The third film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Also as part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film.  Which ultimately makes this a very big win for all of the fans.

Now in case you are unaware what happened. money was the overall root of the problem.  Disney was reportedly seeking a 50/50 co-financing stake in the Spider-man films. This is because of Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige’s continued guiding hand which resulted in the delivery of Sony’s highest grossing film ever with $1.13 billion. It also has to be mentioned that Disney already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man. The original Sony-Marvel deal over the last two SPIDER-MAN movies saw Disney getting an estimated 5% of first gross dollar.

This of course now has changed with the renewed partnership.  Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney proposed for its participation in a future Spider-Man sequel. With this Disney/Marvel Studios would co-finance 25% of a third HOMECOMING movie for a 25% equity stake.

Kevin Feige released a statement which stated,

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

Amy Pascal who has produced the first two Tom Holland led Spider-man films also released a statement.

“This is terrific. Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”

No matter what we now can breathe a sigh of relief as the conclusion to the story can be told and then see what happens within Sony’s own Spider-man Universe.

As we get closer to the grand ensemble of heroes that is Avengers:Infinity War next year, we are beginning to get looks at some of the new suits and uniforms worn by the heroes. This is all thanks to new promo art that has been released.

We see Spider-Man has on a new suit, which appears to bee the one presented to him at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Many believe this to be the famous Iron Spider suit loaded with more Stark Tech. The most obvious change is Black Widow who has a new green shit and blonde hair. Iron Man has a new Mark version of his suit and Captain America sports a new one along with a full beard.

We can only wait til more promo art and pics are released and even the long awaited full trailer.

Avengers:Infinity War is set theaters May 4, 2018

Spider-Man:Homecoming Writers Set to return for sequel

If it isn’t broke then don’t try to fix it.

That’s the best way to describe the formula for the highly successful MCU solo film debut of your friendly wall crawler in Spider-man:Homecoming. With its success, rave reviews and overall praise of Tom Holland webbing his way into people’s hearts, it’s a blast to hear that the same writers are on board for the sequel and potentially its director as well thanks to this exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter.

Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are back in the spider’s web.

The duo, who worked on Spider-Man: Homecoming, are in final negotiations to return to the world of Peter Parker to write the sequel to the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios hit.

Homecoming, a resetting of Sony’s Spider-Man franchise that places the new movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was a major hit for Sony, winning over critics and the comic book fans. It spun over $319 million domestically at the box office and $737 million worldwide. (The previous entry, 2014’s derided The Amazing Spider-Man 2, grossed $202 million domestically and $708 million worldwide.)

Sony and Marvel are hoping to keep many of the creative elements of Homecoming together and are already in talks to have Jon Watts return to the director’s chair. Tom Holland is set to return as the web-crawling hero.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is scheduled for a July 5, 2019, release.

McKenna and Sommers hail from the comedy and animation world, having been writer-producers on American Dad andCommunity (separately, McKenna wrote on The Mindy Project, with Sommers working on Happy Endings and Marry Me). The duo worked on The Lego Batman Movie and wrote on Sony and Marvel’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle andAnt-Man and the Wasp movies, respectively, before coming on board Homecoming.

Spiderman Has Been in the MCU for a While Now

With Spiderman:Homecoming just a week away not only is the anticipation building but we are starting to get a bit more information about Peter Parker. Now we initially thought that our first introduction to Peter in the MCU came in Captain America:Civil War but the web-slinger himself Tom Holland has delivered another tidbit of information.

Remember in Iron Man 2 when the hammer drones went rogue at the Stark Expo? Well there is a belief that the youngster wearing an Iron Man mask who stands up to one of Justin Hammer’s drones is, in fact, the future Spider-Man.

In a recent interview, the actor revealed that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has told him that the kid saved by Tony Stark is indeed Peter.

“I can confirm that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool,” he added. “I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”

Whether or not that was meant to be Peter at the time is hard to say and it’s something that only Feige and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau probably know for sure. Either way, this is an incredible Easter Egg and one hell of a retcon which gives Spidey a very special place in the MCU. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out whether or not this moment is actually referenced in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spiderman Tells That He Is Slinging Into More Solo Films

Well Spidey himself Tom Holland at one point had said who he would LIKE to go up against or team up with in future films but never really directly said if he would be back for solo sequels. Well now we have a definitive response and it’s YES Spiderman will have two more solo films after HOMECOMING.

During an interview with French site Allocine, Peter Parker actor Tom Holland appeared to let slip that there is indeed a third installment on the radar:

“There is still plenty of room to see Peter grow up Parker and especially Spider-Man in the next two movies, and at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the story is definitely not complete, I’m really looking forward to exploring how it will grow, [and to] see what will happen after puberty. Yes, [they’re] going to be exciting movies.”

Just to be certain, the site asked Holland to clarify his words, to which he responded: “Yes, there will be Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 3. Now, you know, sorry, Marvel, oops!”

Though this has obviously yet to be made official, Holland’s comments do seem like pretty solid confirmation.

Not a huge surprise, perhaps, but there was always the possibility that the deal between Marvel and Sony was only going to allow for two solo movies, so it’s nice to know for sure that this won’t be the case.

A Brand new “Spiderman-Homecoming” Trailer

fb_img_1475256520785

We were told we’re getting it and now we have it. Its a brand new trailer for Spiderman-Homecoming starring Tom Holland as the Web slinger, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron man and also Michael Keaton as Adrian Toombs/The Vulture.

We see Spidey,post Captain America Civil War returning back to “normal” life as a regular teenager but now trying to deal with a new “local” threat. The action is non stop in this trailer and makes the anticipation for the July 7th release even higher.

“Hamilton” creator wants to be apart of the MCU

The man at the center of one of many Twitter wars with the President-Elect now wants to potentially go to war with some of the Earth’s Mightiest heroes .

Lin-Manuel Miranda the creator of the hit play “Hamilton: An American Musical” has said on the podcast Meet The Movie Press reveals that he apparently really wants to play Carnage. “He said if Disney and Marvel were looking at doing a Maximum Carnage movie or bringing Carnage in as a character, he wants to be Carnage,” co-host Simon Thompson explained. “That’s a goal of his.” It’s somewhat hard to imagine the often jolly Miranda playing the crazy, murderous Cletus Kasady, but perhaps his wish is derived from fandom and a desire to stretch his acting muscles.

Miranda now is deeply embedded in the Disney machine, so if he wants a part in a Marvel movie it might not be that hard to get one. (We’re imagining this could be orchestrated with just a quick call from John Lasseter to Kevin Feige.) In fact, it’s almost surprising, come to think of it, that he wasn’t cast as a cool teacher in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has enlisted every other Internet fave.

I know we here at the Trusty Sidekick would love to see that. What about you all?
