“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” Spinoff Spider-Ham Short Film Clip Released

Published

on

Now that Sony has announced that Into the Spider-Verse will be available on home media in just a few weeks. The animation studio has also unveiled one of the extras included with the release: an animated short film featuring Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).

You can watch the full clip below.

This hilarious minute-long clip is apparently just a preview for the “all-new mini-movie,” including as a bonus on the home media release of the film. Though Spider-Ham battle appears to be original to the short, it does resemble closely Crayfin – a villain from deep in the comic mythos of Spider-Ham.

During the events of Into the Spider-Verse, the entire clip appears to be in the same style that Spider-Ham was animated in. And it could act as a backdoor pilot of sorts for a potential pork-filled spinoff. Back in last December, the comedian John Mulaney joked about turning Spider-Ham into a Superman-esque crimefighter.

“He [Spider-Ham] is a fun guy who’s capable of great rage,” joked Mulaney. “Going see him back at the Daily Beagle. I could see a Watergate-like story at the Beagle where he is both a reporter and also Spider-Ham by night.”

“I’ve never thought that the Clark Klents and the Peter Parkers leaned enough into the day job,” he said. “That would be more like The Post or All The President’s Men or Spotlight. But we would make it family friendly. Lots of bacon jokes, or, ‘that is hamfisted.’”

So far, Sony reportedly has their eyes on a direct sequel of Into the Spider-Verse.

Moreover, there is another plan in the works: the spinoff featuring Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), with Spider-Woman, Silk and other women spider-based characters.

During the press tour for Spider-Verse, the producers behind the film certainly made sure to point out that they did have every intention of exploring this new Spidey universe further.

“Look, we wanted to make the movie that felt like it was the tip of the iceberg,” admitted Lord. “You’d imagine all of those other things. So it is the music to our ears that people could imagine a Spider-Noir movie and the Spider-Ham insane cartoon.”

“Right, we still have the horse,” Miller echoed. “We have got to put the cart behind it. So we will let it ride down the road a few blocks before we get too big for our britches.”

So, will you be buying Into the Spider-Verse when it comes out?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is set to arrive digitally on February 26. The film will be available for physical home media purchase on March 19.

Kevin Feige Confirms “Spider-Man: Far From Home” Will End Phase 3 of the MCU

Published

on

By

After over 20 movies throughout the last decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will eventually see the end of an era when Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters. While we have a slight idea of what Marvel Studios is planning in the future, president Kevin Feige has made sure to keep key details under wraps. However, fans will get their first glimpse at the MCU future when Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres in July.

Recently, while speaking with Bilibili, Kevin Feige has confirmed that Phase 3 of the MCU does not end with Avengers: Endgame, but instead will conclude in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

“It is the end of the third phase. You are the first person I have told that to,” Feige revealed.

There was some confusion over the specific for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it has significantly expanded the scope and size of the franchise, some people assumed it would end after Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home would kick off Phase 4. It turns out that we’ll have to wait just a bit longer for our first look at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, Kevin Feige is excited for what is in store as they continue to lean on the newest heroes in the franchise, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel.

“Anna [Boden] and her directing partner, Ryan [Fleck, Captain Marvel filmmakers], did an amazing job. They made the movie what it is, so yeas, we did believe it was very important that this story is told with a female voice behind the camera, many female voices behind the camera in this case,” Kevin Feige previously told the Wrap. “It is all about going forward. We will not discuss anything past Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, but there’re many things coming.”

The Marvel Studios head also confirmed that the Disney+ series such as Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and WandaVision would play key roles in the MCU future. But that they will not speak about their movie plans until these films premieres.

“As we have been doing for years, we aren’t going to announce anything post Avengers: Endgame or Spider-Man: Far From Home until post Endgame and Spider-Man,” Feige told The Hollywood Reporter.

Maybe we will find out at San Diego Comic-Con, but we still have to deal with Avengers: Endgame hitting theaters on April 26.

Stay tuned!

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Moves Up Release Date

Published

on

By

Oops. It looks likes our friendly neighborhood hero will be swinging into theaters a little bit earlier than previously thought. Sony Pictures has just announced the release date for Spider-Man: Far From Home is being moved up several days, from July 5 to July 2.






This update comes from a listing on Sony’s official website, revealing that the film will be debuting on Tuesday, July 2nd. But it is pretty easy to see why this change would be made, as it will allow Far From Home play throughout the July 4 holiday week, as opposed to having the first Thursday showings on the holiday itself.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will follow Peter Parker/Spider-Man (star Tom Holland) on a globe-trotting adventure during his summer vacation, as he attempts to leave his Spidey persona at home during the trip. And this is complicated by the arrival of Nick Fury (star Samuel L. Jackson) who needs Peter’s help in fighting a group of supervillains called the Elementals. In the process, their fight puts Peter alongside Quentin Beck/Mysterio (star Jake Gyllenhaal). But Mysterio might not be as much of an ally as he initially seemed in the trailer.

“There are those threats to the world, the Elementals, elemental creatures. Mysterio is someone who knows about them. He wants to make sure that the world is safe from them,” Jake Gyllenhaal previously teased in an interview. “Nick Fury asks him to come on to help because he is the only one who really understands them. And he teams up with friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, but unfortunately, he has to make him become more than a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.”

As for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, he also spoke in a statement about the upcoming movie.

“Much like Ant-Man, there’re things that people know about the movie, which is a great deal of it: the villain of the movie, the storyline of the film, that we are shooting in Europe and Peter Parker goes on continuing that [Captain America: Civil War] was a big giant superhero class movie,” Feige said. “The fall out of that in [Spider-Man:] Homecoming was John Hughes and him going to the high school. So that is what is fun to us about the Spider-Man movies — and again going from [Avengers:] Infinity War to Ant-Man and the Wasp, the tonal shift. So, there is a lot of fun stuff. How it connects, where it connects, and when it takes place, very similar to Ant-Man and the Wasp in that we are not gonna say right now.”

So, are you excited to get to see the film earlier? Share with us in the comments?

In the meantime, Captain Marvel is now in theaters. Avengers: Endgame is coming in just a week. Spider-Man: Far From Home officially arrives on July 2!

Former Spider-Man Tobey Maguire Is Open to Another Superhero Role

Published

on

By

Ever before the Marvel Cinematic Universe existed, Tobey Maguire stole the hearts of movie lovers around the world with his original portrayal of Peter Parker version in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Obviously, he looked a little bit too old for that role, but the movies were instant hits with audiences. And two of the tree are often regarded as some of the best superhero films of all time. In the 13 years since Tobey Maguire last starred the web-crawler in Spider-Man 3, there are two other actors who have taken on the mantle: Andrew Garfield and the latest Tom Holland. Despite seeing his iconic role recast, Maguire has not at all soured on the prospect of big-screen heroes. In fact, it looks like he would be willing to take on another comic book role in the future if the opportunity did present itself.

While speaking to THR about his new production banner, Material Pictures, Tobey Maguire was asked about the influx of superhero films in theaters today. And if there were any, he would be open to taking on. The producer/actor explained then. While he may not have had something in his mind already, he is still keeping the door wide open.

“I just do not really have an ‘I would, or I would not do’ mindset,” Maguire said. “I will just do whatever, and whatever it is that comes that I’d feel called to, that may or even may not fit in any kind of the box.”

While Tobey Maguire has yet to take on another superhero role, the iconic character of Spider-Man character has been incredibly busy.

Andrew Garfield tackled the role for two movies. But his franchise really hit the reset button after the critical failure of 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with the deal Marvel Studios previously made with Sony in order to use Peter Parker in the MCU. After the deal was announced, young Spidey Tom Holland landed the popular role. And he has appeared as the superhero in three films so far, with at least one more forthcoming this summer.

Tobey Maguire also noted in the interview that he had not seen all of the new Spider-Man franchise yet, but that he did like the direction both Garfield and Holland took the character.

“I have not seen all of them,” continued Maguire. “What I have seen, I have appreciated. I like both of them a ton. And I think they are both super talented. I’d just say that I appreciated them. And I like the actors. I like the choices.”

So, would you like to see Tobey Maguire return in another superhero film sometime soon? What role do you think is the most suitable for him? Share with us in the comments!

Tom Holland Reveals Three “Spider-Man: Far From Home” New Posters

Published

on

By

Happy Monday, Marvel fans! Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland just wants to start your week off on the right foot. On Instagram, the actor revealed three Far From Home posters that show Spider-Man in his new costume. We can see Spidey is posing in locations throughout Europe, London, and Venice.

“I thought I would kickstart your week with a little Spidey action,” Tom Holland wrote. “Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theatres on July 5, and it is his craziest ride yet.”

The film sees Peter Parker embarking on his school trip to Europe to have Nick Fury enlist Spider-Man for a mission to stop several elemental villains.

View the full posters below.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously has discussed Spidey’s travels.

“We film in Logon,” he said. “We shot the first in Atlanta and shot a lot of films in London, but there is another reason we are shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York. But he will spend some time in other parts of the globe.”

Kevin Feige also stated that the globetrotting of Spider-Man is not the only reason the title was chosen.

“Wel, I mean, let the speculation begin. That is always fun,” said Feige. “We like [Far From Home] of course because it ties into Homecoming, not just keeping that word going, which we like and liked it more than Homecoming 2, but that notion of ‘home’ is just a word that has dual meanings we would like to continue with this [MCU] version of Spider-Man. So, Far From Home has multiple meanings.”

The synopsis of Spider-Man: Far From Home was released alongside the first official trailer and poster for the movie.

Spider-Man: Far From Home synopsis reads, “Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Superhero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of his gang on a European vacation. However, his plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks is quickly scrapped when Peter Parker begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!”

Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts returns to helm the sequel. Tom Holland reprises his role as Spider-Man. Returning cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Micheal Keaton as the Vulture, Zendaya as Michelle. Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson also return to their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Maria Hill and Nick Fury, respectively. And Jake Gyllenhaal debuts as the villain Mysterio, though he has been described as an ally recruited to assist Spider-Man in the film.

Are you excited to see this return of Spider-Man in Far From Home? The movie opens in theaters on July 5.

In the meantime, Captain Marvel is now playing in theaters. Upcoming Avengers: Endgame premieres on April 26.

Marvel Fan Shares An Infographic of Spider-Man Emblems

Published

It seems that the iconic Spider-Man has undergone quite a lot of evolutions over the years. And it also means most fans have their favorite incarnation of the friendly neighborhood hero’s costume. In case you’re having trouble figuring out which you like best, this snazzy new infographic is here to help.

Recently over Reddit, user /rickyfranklin shared an infographic, which catalogs the different emblems that have been used in the past nearly-60 years since the debut of Spider-Man. The graphic also shows Steve Ditko’s original depiction of the Spider-Man symbol, all the way to the one seen in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

You can view the Spidey infographic below.

Anyone who is tangentially familiar with the Spider-Man universe is probably aware of how many different versions of the iconic web-slinger exist, even within the live-action film space. Since 2000, three actors have brought Peter Parker/Spider-Man to life on the big screen, with the latest being Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Actually I haven’t been in contact with them,” the star said of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield during a 2016’s interview. “But it is so lucky because I have got five movies that I can draw from. I watched every single one before I even got cast in this movie. Then I watched them all again and just picked little things that I thought was great and that I would like to keep.”

And in recent years, the impact of Spider-Man has been on full display in another medium as well. That includes the Spider-Geddon comic event, the recent Oscar-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the successful Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 game.

“Spider-Man is a special character,” executive creative director for Marvel Games, Bill Roseman, said around the release of the Spider-Man game. “People usually discover Spider-Man when they are very young. And then they grew up with Spider-Man. He is a rare character that has been popular since his first short story in Amazing Fantasy #15. Then he soon became Marvel’s most popular character. And he has held that position for decades.”

“Avengers: Endgame:” Marvel Fan Spots Spider-Man on the Poster Making Us In Tears

Published

on

By

A new trailer of Avengers: Endgame has dropped, and along with it we got a film poster as well. The official poster is pretty much the standard issue design for a Marvel flick. According to one fan, the poster also contains an appearance of an iconic character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that fans really miss, Spider-Man.

Check it out below!

Dude! Too soon. Way too soon!

Serious though: until Endgame can probably restore Peter Parker/Spider-Man to his former glory (of being alive) and set him back on the path of being the friendly neighborhood hero we will see in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, we have zero chill about his death in Avengers: Infinity War. Out of all the dusted characters from Thanos’ snap, they had to pick Spider-Man, just to go for the extra-hard punch to the collective gut of Marvel fans everywhere. It is either brutally savage or hilarious, depending on your disposition after watching Infinity War.

The second Avengers: Endgame trailer has raised quite a few new interesting theories about how the film plays out. In Captain Marvel’s mid-credits scene, we see that Carol Danvers returning to Earth and meeting the Avengers will already be handled. And the trailer makes it look like Thanos (potentially) will be ambushing the Avengers Headquarter pretty early on.

While all of that is exciting, it remains unknown what the actual big mission is at the heart of Endgame. And we also don’t have the slightest idea what this “greater threat than Thanos” teased for the film could be. The fate of Spider-Man will be a question for us. Will he play a major part when he is finally resurrected? Or will we get just a glimpse of the wall-crawler at the end?

Avengers: Infinity War is already available on home media while Captain Marvel is in theaters now. Upcoming MCU movies include Avengers: Endgame on April 26, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5.

“Into the Spider-Verse” Featurette Shows Nicolas Cage Going “Full Cage” with Spider-Man Noir

Published

on

By

A new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse special featurette has made its way online, peeling back the curtain on one of the animated film’s breakout performances.

You can watch the video below.

This featurette provides a bit of behind-the-scenes insight into Spider-Man Noir, who was portrayed by Nicolas Cage in the Sony animated film. The video also shows Cage recording some of his dialogue for the Oscar-winning movie, as well as a story about how the actor decided to go “Full Cage” with his role.

Back in 2009, Spider-Man Noir was created as part of the larger Marvel Noir universe.

This Peter Parker’s version was a reporter’s apprentice during the Great Depression, only to be bitten by an illegally imported spider. Like most iterations of Spider-Man, the bite granted Peter superhuman abilities, and he used them to fight against crime in New York City.

Furthermore, a collected edition of the Spider-Man Noir comics will be released later this year.

As it turns out, Nicolas Cage was the very first actor to join the Spider-Verse’s star-studded ensemble.

He apparently brought lots of excitement to the role behind the scenes.

“We showed Cage some artwork we had created for the film and even pitched the character to him. And immediately he was in. [Spider-Man] Noir was a character that spoke to him. That black and white costume was the icing,” said co-director Bob Persichetti. “Nicolas Cage was our first official lead cast because it felt so right. So actually we cast him over two years ago, but he could not tell anyone.”

“He never took [his sunglasses] off, and he never broke character. There was also a palpable Humphrey Bogart energy that he brought into the room. And it was really fun,” continued Persichetti.

“We worked through his Noir lines in three hours. Cage delivered awesome pulp magazine style line reads, and also his comedy pulp style readings. He is so good at it!” the co-director said. “When we were done, he said his goodbyes, and walked out of the room, and that was it! No small talk. It was all business. He was just amazing.”

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is now available on Digital HD. The film will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD later this month.

Marvel Comics Releases “Spider-Man Noir: The Complete Collection”

Published

Marvel Comics has announced a brand-new reprint of Spider-Man Noir. It will serve as a “complete” collection of the character’s solo series.

As part of the company’s ComicsPRO appearance, the edition is expected to collect the four issues of the Spider-Man Noir solo series, as well as its sequel, Spider-Man Noir: Eyes Without a Face.

You can check out the official art for the collection below.

Spider-Man Noir was first created in 2009 as a part of the larger Marvel Noir universe.

This version of Peter Parker was a reporter’s apprentice during the Great Depression, only to be bitten by an illegally imported spider. As with most iterations of Spider-Man, the bite granted Peter superhuman abilities, which he used to fight against crime in New York City.

By and large, in recent years, the collected editions of Spider-Man Noir have been few and far between, with some copies going for as high as $120 online. However, thanks to the character’s resurgence, both as a playable suit in Spider-Man PlayStation 4 and as a character in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It looks like Spidey fans will have a chance to experience his story in a new way.

The Spider-Verse portrayal of Spider-Man Noir was brought to life by Nicolas Cage, who voices the mysterious and moody character.

Spider-Man Noir was also the “first official lead” of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and was secretly cast two years before release.

“While looking at who we could approach to play the alternate dimension Spider characters, we thought about seminal actors that might be comic book geeks. There’re so many different casting meetings where a lot of options were put in front of us. But with Spider-Man Noir, we kept coming back to Nicolas Cage and wondering if he could or even would do it,” co-director Bob Persichetti revealed in the film’s art book.

And Nicolas Cage seemingly did bring a lot of excitement to the role behind the scenes.

“We showed him some artwork we had created for the film and even pitched the character to him. And immediately he was in. [Spider-Man] Noir was a character that spoke to him. That black and white costume was the icing,” said co-director Bob Persichetti. “Cage was our first official lead cast because it felt so right. So actually we cast him over two years ago, but he could not tell anyone.”

When Nicolas Cage arrived for his first Noir recording session a year later, the star came in pitch dark glasses.

“He never took them off, and he never broke character. There was also a palpable Humphrey Bogart energy that he brought into the room. And it was really fun,” Persichetti continued.

“We worked through his lines in three hours. Cage delivered awesome pulp magazine style line reads, and also his comedy pulp style readings. He is so good at it!” the co-director said. “When we were done, he said his goodbyes, and walked out of the room, and that was it! No small talk. It was all business. He was just amazing.”

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” Wins Oscar’s Best Animated Feature Film

Published

on

By

Official news: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has won the Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards!

Congrats to Bob Persichetti, Rodney Rothman, Peter Ramsey, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller for taking home the prize! This is also the first nomination and first win for each creator (in 2015, some of them were infamously snubbed back for The LEGO Movie, however).

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse eventually beat out Incredibles 2 (Brad Bird, John Walker, and Nicole Paradis Grindle), Isle of Dogs (Wes Anderson, Steven Rales, Jeremy Dawson, and Scott Rudin), Mirai (Mamoru Hosoda and Yūichirō Saitō), and Ralph Breaks the Internet (Rich Moore, Clark Spencer, and Phil Johnston).

Into the Spider-Verse becomes the first Spider-Man film to win an Oscar since Spider-Man 2 took home the Best Visual Effects award back in 2005. Moreover, this is the first win and second nomination of Sony Animation. They previously were nominated in 2007 for Surf’s Up, but lost to Pixar’s Ratatouille.

Before the Into the Spider-Verse’s release last year, many fans thought Incredibles 2 was a lock. However, Spider-Verse came sweeping in and shocked audiences with its innovative storytelling. While the Incredibles sequel continued to make way more money ($1,242,774,080 worldwide compared to Into the Spider-Verse’s $359,057,802), the Spidey flick eventually has been dominating this Awards Season.

In addition to the Oscar-winner, Spider-Verse won the Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Producer’s Guild Awards, and the BAFTAs. Moreover, the film managed to score seven Annie Awards. That includes the Best Animated Feature, Best Character Design, Best Character Animation, Best Directing, Best Writing, Best Production Design, and Best Editorial.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse becomes the highest rated Spidey film in history.

The movie did earn a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, which made it one of the highest rated movies of 2018. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) scored 92%, Spider-Man (2002) has a 90%. Spider-Man 2 (2004) an 83%, and Spider-Man 3 (2007) follows at 63%. To round out its numbers, The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) score a 72% and 51%, respectively.

While Spider-Verse is based on a Marvel iconic character, this film is not a part of the MCU. However, Marvel Studios is having their own successful Awards Season, including Avengers: Infinity War for its Best Visual Effects and recent Black Panther with seven nominations and the Oscar-winner as well.

Once again, congrats to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, alongside the crew behind the film – Bob Persichetti, Rodney Rothman, Peter Ramsey, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller – for the Oscars 2019 win!

The film is due out digitally now. And the Spider-Verse sequel is rumoredly in the works, including spinoffs for Spider-Ham and Spider-Gwen.

In the meantime, you can view the calendar marks for Marvel films heading in 2019.

And you can also watch several cameos in this animated film once again – in memory of Stan Lee, the creator behind the Spidey iconic character. Excelsior!

Spider-Verse Producer Reveals Hot Dogs Are Made of Human Meat in Spider-Ham’s Universe

Published

on

By

Spidey fans just found out that the home media version of Into the Spider-Verse would be accompanied by a short film Caught in a Ham, featuring Spider-Ham/Peter Porker (voiced by John Mulaney). In the brief preview clip released, Spider-Ham can be chomping down on a hot dog as he swings through the city.

As fate would have it, fans posted to Twitter, pointing out that hot dogs are, often, made of pork products. That is when Into the Spider-Verse co-producer Chris Miller took a second to step in, making quite the revelation. Peter Porker was not a cannibalistic hero eating a pork hot dog. In fact, the sausages in the universe of Spider-Ham are made of …human meat.

On the press tour for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Chris Miller and his long-time collaborator Phil Lord did admit that Spider-Verse was just the “tip of the iceberg” before unveiling they would like to create more properties set in the same animated multi-verse.

“Look, we want to make the movie that felt like it’s the tip of the iceberg,” admitted Lord. “You’d imagine all of those other things. So it is music to our ears that people could imagine a Spider-Noir movie and the Spider-Ham insane cartoon.”

“We still have the horse,” Miller echoed. “We’ve got to put the cart behind it. So we’ll let it ride down the road a few blocks before we get too big for our britches.”

As far as Spider-Ham goes, John Mulaney has previously joked about giving Peter Porker his own film.

If it were up to the comedian, this fan-favorite Spider-Ham would star in the movie that features his character in a role akin to the Man of Steel.

“He [Spider-Ham] is a fun guy who is capable of great rage,” joke Mulaney. “Going see him back at the Daily Beagle, I could see a Watergate-like story at the Beagle where he is both a reporter and Spider-Ham by night.”

“I’ve never thought that the Clark Klents and the Peter Parkers leaned enough into the day job,” the comedian continued. “That would be more like The Post or All The President’s Men or the Spotlight. But we’d make it family friendly. A lot of bacon jokes, or, ‘that is hamfisted.’”

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will be due out digitally on February 26 and available on the home media on March 19.
