Stan Lee Almost Had a Different Line in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Cameo



The following contains some spoilers for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

In addition to receiving widespread critical acclaim, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is also a fairly significant film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe history, since it is the first movie to feature a cameo from Stan Lee, following the passing of the legendary comic book creator earlier this year.

Stan Lee’s cameo in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is quite a touching moment. It’d have been an emotional experience for fans regardless, as the movie has come out shortly after his demise. However, the scene could not be more fitting. Stan Lee’s lines seem to be made for the moment just like this one. It feels like almost too perfect, making the fact that his cameo would have played out differently all the more surprising.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse co-director Rodney Rothman said that Lee’s lines were delivered in the kind of other ways. So the sequence could have been handled a little differently.

“A thing that was interesting for us is that it involved,” Rothman said to IndieWire. “We recorded it a year ago. And it’s not so long after his wife [Joan B. Lee] had passed away. We also had revisions that tried a little harder to be funnier, and we tried a little harder to be harder. And what ended up in the movie were the lines that had the most meaning to him.”

Stan Lee, in fact, appears at the perfect moment in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The Peter Parker version of Miles Morales’ universe has died, and Miles has decided to try and take over the mantle. He purchases a Spidey Holloween costume, and Stan Lee ends up being the one ringing up the purchase. Lee says that he will miss Spider-Man, as the two used to be friends. Then Lee says goodbye to his greatest creation as millions in the audience use the same moment to say goodbye to him.

It seems that a part of the reasons the scene being so poignant was that Stan Lee himself said goodbye while he was recording the lines. Rodney Rothman also revealed that Lee recorded those lines shortly after the death of his wife. Eventually, the version of the sequence in the last decision was the one that meant the most to Stan Lee in that moment.

Even so, the fact that we could have seen a much more intentionally humorous version of the cameo is not the only way the scene changed over time. Rothman also revealed that originally, Stan Lee told Miles Morales that the Spidey costume would “never fits.” But while recording, they made a spur-of-the-moment decision to change the line to “It always fits… eventually.”

Rothman added, “At the moment, he has to deliver just enough to get that kid to put the suit on.”

As it turns out, fortunately, the crew did reach a breakthrough when they realized the importance of other Spider-people in Miles’ journey.

“This was all about being selfless because we are all heroes. But also the one guy who would not die as a result of staying behind [Miles Morales] can’t even do the job. And it’s great because now we were in a really cool predicament. And we could push forward,” co-director Bob Persichetti said.

It feels right that the man who helps to pass the torch between Peter Parker & Miles Morales in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is no one more than Stan Lee. He is the one telling the kid that it is okay. That, while it would not always be easy to fill the shoes of the original. But it can be done, eventually. And we’re not sure if anyone will ever fill the shoes of Stan Lee. But we are all glad that we knew him as much as we did.

Mark Millar Declares Taron Egerton Will Be the Next Wolverine




Now that the X-Men can be officially introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But fans are already speculating about with actors could bring the iconic characters to life – including prolific comic writer Mark Millar.

Recently, a fan took to Twitter, pointing out that Millar “predicted the future” of the MCU in a panel from 2002, which modeled Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and happened to name drop future Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Mark Millar then responded to that tweet with the message of “Always remember, I’m never wrong,” while also declaring that Taron Egerton would be the next actor to portray Wolverine.

Certainly, Mark Millar has an established rapport with Taron Egerton, ever since the actor has starred in the adaptation of Millar’s Kingsman comics. Still, he is not alone in speculating about the Rocketman star playing Wolverine, something that Egerton recently addressed.

“I think that one is just a rumor,” Taron Egerton admitted during an interview this month. “As far as I’m aware, it is unfounded. I don’t know if I’m grisly enough. I mean if the people at Marvel think I am. Then great, let’s go! I think there are probably better candidates. But I’d love to be involved with that world somewhere.”

After Hugh Jackman delivered an iconic performance as Wolverine for the last two decades, it is hard to deny that whoever succeeds him also has some pretty big shoes to fill, whether that be Taron Egerton or otherwise.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

“Hugh, the physicality of it all, just to bulk up,” said X-Men producer Lauren Schuler Donner earlier this year. “This man worked too hard to bulk up. He would get up at four in the morning to bulk and eat protein meals every two hours because of his natural state. They used to call him Worm when he was a kid. So his natural state is a very skinny guy. And once you reach a certain age, the body just will not go anymore. I think he was wise to say, ‘I am at that point. I can’t do it.’ Now, that does not mean he can’t come back older Wolverine. You’ll never know. Future Wolverine, you never know.”

Taika Waititi Officially Signs On to Write and Direct Thor 4




Back in November 2017, Marvel Studios gave Chris Hemsworth’s Thor a completely new look, vibe, and style, with the action-comedy Thor: Ragnarok. This fun-loving adventure was a major departure from the first two Thor solo movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and fans absolutely loved the changes. Moreover, a large part of this success of the film thanks to writer/director Taika Waititi, who gave audiences hope that the Thor franchise could continue past Avengers: Endgame. Well, now that future is just a little more set in stone. Taika Waititi is officially back for another Thor!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taika Waititi has signed on to write and helm Thor 4 for Marvel Studios. Still, no release date has been announced at this time.

This is certainly good news for Marvel fans. Especially when Thor: Ragnarok became an instant favorite amongst the MCU faithful, it did come at the expense of another major project that Taika Waititi was involved in. The filmmaker was attached to tell the story of the live-action adaptation of the beloved anime Akira, which was set to hit theaters in 2021. However, there were reportedly some scheduling conflicts between Akira and the proposed Thor 4, along with some script issues with the former. That caused Taika Waititi to shift back to another Marvel Studios film. That said, the hope is that Taika Waititi will return to Akira once he has finished with Thor.

If the production timelines were overlapping, and Akira was coming to the big screen in 2021, that could mean that a fourth Thor movie might be on the way in the next couple of years. Given the immense popularity of Chris Hemsworth and the supporting characters, that would not come as much of a surprise. At this time, the star is expected to reprise his role of Thor for the new film, making him the first character in the MCU to have four solo movies.

And with Marvel Studios set for a massive panel in Hall H on Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, let’s wait for some official news to come from Kevin Feige & Company.

Scroll below to see some hilarious memes and reactions that Marvel fans are now flipping out, in honor of his return to the MCU!

“Avengers: Endgame” Takes a Big Jump in Catching Avatar, Less Than $7 Million Away




Avengers: Endgame is now on Avatar’s tail at the global box office. The Marvel Studios’ flick has earned another $2.8 million this weekend, bringing its worldwide box office total to $2.781 billion. At this time of writing, that puts Endgame’s box office behemoth a mere $7 million shy of typing Avatar’s $2.788 billion box office record.

Check out the chart below.

For his part, Avengers: Endgame co-director Anthony Russo is trying not to think about whether the movie will catch or top Avatar.

“I mean, look at it, I know it sounds very sensational, and all but I try not to focus on it because there is no – even if we do not pass Avatar, there is no way I want to have a shred of regret about anything associated with this movie,” the filmmaker said at the MTV Awards. “So I refuse to kind of consider it, you know?”

However, Avengers: Endgame already passed Avatar to becoming the second highest-grossing film ever at the domestic box office. After being re-released in theaters, Endgame returned to the domestic box office top 10. The movie earned another $1.69 million in North America this weekend, bringing its domestic total to $851 million.

During a press tour for Avengers: Endgame, directors Anthony and Joe Russo expressed, “We poured our hearts and soul into Avengers: Endgame, hoping to tell a story that would inspire audiences around the world. Our family of cast and crew all felt honored to be entrusted with bringing the Infinity Saga to a close. To Kevin Feige, everyone at Marvel and Disney, and the incredible, global community of fans, thank you.”

Avengers: Endgame is now being re-released in select theaters. The film will be hitting digital on July 30 and available in Blu-ray on August 13.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.

Sam Raimi Still Thinks About His Unmade Spider-Man 4




Director Sam Raimi is revered for providing horror fans with multiples cult-classics, including the Evil Dead franchise, but he is probably best known for helping kickstart the current wave of Marvel obsession with his Spidey trilogy. Now that he has shifted to a producer role for the new movie Crawl – released less than two weeks after the premiere of Spider-Man: Far From Home – Sam Raimi is reflecting on the Spidey film that never was.

Recently, while speaking with Yahoo! about his role in helping bring Crawl to life, Sam Raimi revealed about his regrets for not getting to make that Spidey film. The filmmaker admitted that the missed opportunity haunted him to this day.

“I think about it all the time,” Raimi said. “It is hard not to, because each summer another Spider-Man movie comes out! So when you have an unborn one, you cannot help but think about what might have been. But I try to focus on what’ll be, and not look into the past.”

Obviously, Sam Raimi used his horror sensibilities, as he explained to Yahoo! that he is a huge fan of the Universal Monster pantheon. But the filmmaker still wanted to stay true to the frenetic energy from the early days of Marvel Comics.

“I was super influenced by those movies. I also loved the Hammer horror films. But I was much more influenced by Stan Lee’s comic books and great artists like Jack Kirby and John Romita who told stories with visuals that had a real in-your-face and over-the-top presentation. And I was trying to bring that kind of imagery to life in these Spider-Man films,” Sam Raimi explained.

It is unfortunate that we will never get Sam Raimi’s plan for Spider-Man 4, even though it seems that we would never have gotten the latest iteration of this character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if that were actually the case. His original plans for the fourth movie included using the villains Mysterio and Vulture, iconic foes who later appeared in Marvel Studios’ films.

It is a bittersweet tradeoff, but we still can’t help but wonder what might have been had Sam Raimi had the opportunity to end his Spidey series on a high note.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Writers Explained “Super Embarrassing” Peter Tingle




Spider-Man: Far From Home culminates with Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom Holland) fully tapping into his Spider-Sense for the first time. However, writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers initially did not want to play Spidey’s danger alert system seriously – leading to Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) playfully calling the gift the “Peter Tingle.”

“Somehow tingle came up. Spider-Tingle. And then [director Jon] Watts said Peter-Tingle,” co-writer McKenna shared to The Hollywood Reporter. “That is horrible, yes! We have to use that. That is super embarrassing.”

“It is just the kind of thing your aunt would call it that would embarrass you,” added Sommers.

And when facing off against Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) as well as the army of killer drones in London, Spider-Man then closes his eyes and leans into his “Peter Tingle” – saving the day as he trusts his senses over his own eyes, lest they be fooled my Mysterio’s deceptions.

That no-so-serious name change also came as part of an effort to incorporate Spidey iconic ability without directly naming it the “Spider-Sense.”

“We were always struggling to be little more nuanced about it or a little sideways about the special power of his without being on the nose and calling it “Spider-Sense,’” McKenna previously told TheWrap.

“Well, do we call it nothing? What do we call it? Do we go for something more of a joke name?” said Sommers.” And I assure you, that we went around and around and tried all different kind of things.”

Initially, the Far From Home writers also considered having Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who acts as a sort of chaperon at times for Peter Parker and his classmates during their vacation in Europe, be the one to give the MCU’s Spider-Sense its name ultimately.

“Definitely we had some scenes where Happy was stumbling through different descriptions of trying to think of a thing to call it himself,” added Sommers.

“We like Peter Tingle because it is like your aunt calls it something. And that is the last thing you want it called. So then, of course, she doubled down, and that is what she is calling it. And she tells someone else, and that is what they are calling it. It is a very authentic teen life.”

So, what do you think about this Spidey name?

Robert Downey Jr. Distances Himself From Iron Man Role: “I’m Not What I Did With That Studio”




After wrapping Avengers: Endgame, star Robert Downey Jr. did bring his Iron Man story to a close in Marvel Studios, especially he has played the character of Tony Stark for the past ten years that anyone would seem a bit inseparable from the characters they tackle. For Downey, though it has never been that way, as he’s purposely tried to divide the person playing Iron Man that so many fans know him for.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Downey Jr. explained that early on it’d have been easy for the two to become the same person.

“Initially, be creating, associating and synergizing with Tony Stark and the Marvel Universe; and being a good company man, but also a little off-kilter, being creative and getting into all these other partnerships, it was a time when… What do they say? Owners start looking like their pets,” said Robert Downey Jr.

That being said, Downey made it a point not to let that happen, relying on his theatrical training and a process called aesthetic distance.

“I’m not my work,” said Downey. “I’m not what I did with that studio. I’m not that period of time that I spent playing the character. And it sucks because the kid in all of us wants to be like, ‘No. It is always going to be summer camp, and we are all holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya.’”

Robert Downey Jr. also enjoyed his time playing Tony Stark/Iron Man and admits he huge paydays can provide security. “There is always a dependency on something that feels like a sure thing. It is the closest I’ll ever come to being a trust fund kid.”

Though Downey now has several projects on the way, including a new Sherlock Holmes movie and his reboot of Doctor Dolittle, he admits that he has not yet really started to explore a true post-Marvel and Iron Man life just yet.

“I haven’t been forced to explore the new frontier of what is my creative and personal life after this,” said Robert Downey Jr. “It is always good to get ahead of where you’re about to be. If you put eyes on ‘that is going to be a big turn down there, spring of ’19,’ I better start psychically getting on top of that. It is always in the transitions between one phase and the next phase that people fall apart.”

You can also watch a special feature below, revealing behind the scenes when Robert Downey Jr. first took the screen test as Iron Man. In the clip from Fandango, director Jon Favreau, producer Louis D’Esposito, casting director Sarah Halley Flynn, and Downey Jr. discuss the casting process that led to the actor becoming Marvel Studios’ first superhero.

For now, you can still see Robert Downey Jr. in the part of Iron Man, as Avengers: Endgame is getting re-released in theaters now.

How “Spider-Man: Far From Home” Pulled Off the Post-Credits Cameo




As a saying goes, always save the best for last. Spider-Man: Far From Home was such a great movie according to a lot of glowing reviews and buzz on social media, but it may have followed that popular quote. As we see in the film’s mid-credits scene, a surprising and epic cameo blew longtime fans of Marvel’s wallcrawler out of their seats. And as it turns out, the directors behind the most recent entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe have always wanted to pull off the surprise cameo.

Warning: Major spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

When Spider-Man (Tom Holland) landed in New York City, his time home was quickly spoiled when Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) sent a recorded message to the Daily Bugle that framed him as the criminal villain behind the elemental attacking around the Earth. When the monitors on the streets showed the face of the newspaper’s voice, it was none other than J.K. Simmons starring J. Jonah Jameson. The same beloved actor from the original Spidey trilogy is officially playing a brand new version of the same character.

“It was the idea we had from the very earliest conversations. At Marvel Studios if we get to work with Sony and make a Spider-Man film, we want to bring [J. Jonah] Jameson back, somehow,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said. “Thinking about who it’d be, we really thought J.K. [Simmons] as an actor who is so versatile, and you look at his amazing iconic performance in the [Sam] Raimi films. Then look at his amazing performances in Whiplash and other films. You go, ‘It can be the same guy but a different tone, and tap into sort of more modern, news personalities of today.”

Meanwhile, according to producer Amy Pascal, that was always part of the plan.

“Well, we always knew we were going to do that from the beginning,” she revealed. “But we never even put it in that script because we never said that it was him who was on the newscast.”

The debuts of J. Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle are signs of where the next Spidey story will take place and grow in his next outing on the big screen.

“We have spent certainly the five Tom Holland as Spider-Man in the MCU films that we have made together, has been about taking him literally out of New York to different places, things we have never seen before with him, space briefly, interact with the Avengers, Europe in the film,” said Kevin Feige. “And he came back to New York, suggesting, ‘Okay, we are going to get back to that.’ How awesome it is seeing him swing around at the end of the movie, and with the web wings glide through an under-construction version of Avengers Tower.”

Obviously, the president of Marvel Studios is not ready to reveal who bought Avengers Tower in Spider-Man: Homecoming, saying, “I did not see a sign there yet.”

Filmmaker Jon Watts previously clarified that Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson is not from any sort of multiverse in Far From Home. But he’s from the Marvel Cinematic Universe which fans have been following since Iron Man (2008).

“It is a new take on the same character that happens to be played by the same actor,” the director said.

“if he did not want to do it, we would not have done it,” Jon Watts said of Simmons. “It is his iconic performance. So I thought it was a little weird to him at first. He was like, ‘Wait, what do you want me to do?’ And he was like, ‘Guys, these were different films, don’t you understand?’ But as soon as we pitched him the concept and the slightly different take on the character, he was totally on board.”

An actor repeating his performance across universes is unprecedented, but if there is anyone who deserves to carry that kind of mantle, it is J.K. Simmons.

“We thought if we are going to have J. Jonah Jameson, it had to be J.K. Simmons,” Watts continued, as to the decision to bring Simmons back. “And there was never any discussion about it being anyone else because it just would not have felt right.”

So, the different take on the character as well as the impact of this shocking post-credits scene will be a major influence on the next Spider-Man movie. “There is certainly going to be bug repercussions from the way we end this film,” said Watts.

MCU: The Difference Between “The Snap” and “The Blip”




Ever since the end of Avengers: Infinity War last year, fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe have referred to the biggest event that wiped out half of all life on Earth, and across the galaxy – as “The Snap.” It makes sense, considering Thanos literally snapped away half the population after accumulating all of six Infinity Stones. However, it works more as a movie-going term, considering not everyone knows how it all went down.

The people on the streets of various cities and towns across the planet, far removed from the Battle of Wakanda (Black Panther), would likely refer to it as something else, especially after everyone returned in Endgame. And with Spider-Man: Far From Home, finally it gives us a different term for this event, with the students of Midtown High referring to their disappearances and return as “The Blip.

Recently, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke with Fandango about the nomenclature, explaining how it all differentiates in the MCU.

“It came pretty fast. We always referred to it as the Blip, then the public started referring to it as the Snap,” Feige explained. “We think it is funny when high school kids just call this horrific, universe-changing event the Blip. We have narrowed it down. The Snap is when everyone disappeared at the end of Infinity War. And The Blip is when everybody returned at the end of Endgame. And that’s how we’ve narrowed in on the definitions.”

Actually, not everyone knows what happened in Wakanda, even though Steve Rogers/Captain America refers to the Mad Titan by name when conducting his support group in Endgame. So it stands to reason that not everyone actually knows about Thanos snapping his fingers, or that they’d even refer to the disappearances of friends and family so colloquially.

the snap

At least we now have some defining terms for two of the most significant events to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hopefully, we will get more stories to explore the five-year time period between “The Snap” and “The Blip,” so we could learn more about how the world managed to move on and adapt to these horrible events.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is globally playing in theaters now. Avengers: Endgame will arrive digitally on July 3o and Blu-ray on August 13.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Reveals a New Name For Thanos’ Snap




At the end of Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, Thanos snapped his fingers while wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, making half of all life in the known universe turn to exist. For a while, Marvel fans simply called this horrifying event: The Snap. However, that changed when Marvel stated that the event was actually called The Decimation (which does not exactly make sense but sounds totally terrifying). But then, this life wasn’t long for The Decimation, as everyone who was lost was brought back in Endgame, bringing the entire tragedy full circle. The newly-released Spider-Man: Far From Home now delivers the first glimpse at the MCU post-Endgame. And there’s apparently a new, official name for the disappearance and sudden return of half the world’s population.

Warning: the following could contain some mild spoilers.

Throughout Spider-Man: Far From Home, this event is referred to as The Blip. People all around the world just evaporated into dust one day, only to appear in the same place five years later, especially having not aged even a day.

At the beginning of the film, footage from Peter Parker’s high school shows a pep rally that took place five years before. There are several students in the stands, as well as many band members on the basketball court, that all turned into dust. Meanwhile, another cell phone video shows the second half of the Blip, but five years later. Then, a basketball game is taking place on the same court when the majority of a marching band suddenly appears out of nowhere causing a shock to everyone involved.

The characters in Far From Home also refers to the Blip, or “being Blipped” quite a bit. At one point, Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) is giving a speech at a charity for people who were homeless or displaced due to the Blip, and she references her own traumatizing experience.

When May was blipped, she was then in her apartment, only to reappear five years later and find a new family living there. Upon coming back, May was initially mistaken to be the husband’s mistress, until everyone realized what was actually going on.

The Blip does not sound nearly as scary as The Decimation, and it does not have kind of the same ring to it as The Snap. However, it looks like this is the official terminology that will be used by the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.

So, which of the three names do you like the most? Share with us in the comments!

Black Panther

“Black Panther 2:” Ryan Coogler Is Now Working on the Story




There is no question that Black Panther was an undisputed hit for Marvel Studios, joining the $1 Billion Club with such an impressive box office. Ever since the movie premiered to critical and fan acclaim – not to mention its Oscar nominations – fans have still been eager to get a sequel in the world of Wakanda. It did not take long for Marvel to announce Black Panther 2 was already in the works, but there has been little development since then.

Now we know for sure that director Ryan Coogler is at work on the sequel to Black Panther, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige himself. During an interview with BET about the potential for the return of Erik Killmonger, Feige shot that rumor down but instead confirmed a big piece of news in the process.

“The honest answer is that’s pure rumor and speculation because Mr. [Ryan] Coogler is just in only recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie,” Kevin Feige said. “It is early, so nothing is set yet in any way that far because Coogler is sitting down and he will share it with [producer] Nate Moore and myself in coming weeks.”

Meanwhile, Ryan Coogler is taking his time to make sure he gets Black Panther 2 just right, as he himself explained when it was announced he was returning to write the story and direct the film. He previously spoke with IndieWire about the pressure of following up a critical and commercial blockbuster, hoping to live up to expectations.

“I think the pressure is kinda always going to be there,” said Coogler. “I have had a chance to make three feature films, each one of them had its own very specific type of pressure. And in the process of it, it feels insurmountable each time.”

However, the filmmaker has still focused on making Black Panther 2 the best movie it can be, and not focusing on the expectations.

“When it comes to making a sequel, I have never done it before, a sequel to something that I have directed myself,” Ryan Coogler added. “So I think there is gonna be a lot of pressure, but what we are going to do is just focusing on the work, as we always do. We really try to go step by step and quiet everything else around us, and focus on making something that has some type of meaning.”

Last year, Kevin Feige spoke with EW after the premiere of Black Panther, explaining that the sequel was in the works, though he did not offer any more concrete details of what fans should expect.

“One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on Part I and talking and dreaming about what we’d do in Part II. There’ve been plenty of these conversations as we were putting the first Black Panther together. We also have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.”

Until now, Black Panther 2 does not yet have a release date.
