In a statement that surprised nobody, Kevin Feige confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be Peter Parker. I typed that sentence on April 15th. Then, I got a message that my father had died. Suddenly this did not seem all that important for me. This is why I have not … Continue Reading All New Spider-Man (In With the Old)
It is really good.
I am getting excited for this series to hit.
I would have Peter Parker be in the MCU first. He would be the theatrical Spider-Man. Race optional. Could be black, hispanic, asian, white, etc. He would be in the Captain America: Civil War film. Then there would be an easter egg in Spidey’s film. at some point, we would … Continue Reading If I were in Marvels Shoes…
I noticed Jeff Sneider (who has stated a 95% certainty that Peter Parker will not be white) clarified a bit on twitter where he is getting this idea. He noted that white actors are going out for the role, but agents for some of those actors have told Jeff they … Continue Reading Just Maybe…
So, I have been pretty firm in my statement that Marvel and Sony are not going to switch out Peter for Miles in the Spider-Man franchise. There is this rumor from late last week. “This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man is not … Continue Reading It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
And it turns out I was wrong. The Marvel/Sony deal did not put an end to Sinister Six movie plans. They are delayed, but Sony apparently plans to proceed without Marvel’s input to boot. And this is just a terrible idea. First, the idea that their next Spider-Related film would … Continue Reading Sinister Ideas…
So, Marvel’s corner of the internet broke last night. In a big announcement Marvel and Sony noted they have joined forces to re-invigorate the Spider-Franchise. While confirming my feeling that there was no deal in place when it was “leaked that the deal was done”, they did sort of pull it … Continue Reading Does Whatever A Spider Can
So, yesterday, there were reports originating with Latino Review that Sony had a done deal with Marvel that gave Marvel the use of Spider-Man in the Avengers: Infinity Wars films. People were excited. Sony Denies this. There are two possibilities at play (that are the most likely). Sony denied it … Continue Reading Who Needs Who
So, Warner Brothers is proceeding with it’s plan to make a Justice League movie. I don’t have a lot of faith that it will work out even if made. They are apparently talking to Ben Affleck about directing. Which is a perfectly good choice. Ben has proven he has the … Continue Reading Just Another Injustice
All I will say about the Amazing Spider-Man right now is that I found far more to like than dislike. The creators understand who Spider-Man is far better than the creators of Superman Returns understood who Superman was. But apparently I am running counter to professional geek reviewers who are … Continue Reading Me Against the (Geek) World
