Spider-Man Likely To Appear In Venom 3, Not Venom 2

It seems inevitable that eventually, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom will collide on the big screen. Now that Sony and Marvel are on the outs, experts were predicting that the web-head would be facing off against the super villain in Venom 2. According to our sources, however – the same ones who told us Marvel was developing a She-Hulk show back in April – the studio is planning on holding off their big battle until Venom 3.

It’s possible that they decided to do this because they’re already introducing a big new character in the upcoming sequel. Yes, as you surely know, Woody Harrelson’s Carnage will be making his debut in the 2020 film and executives probably wanted to give him time with Venom before Spider-Man’s brought in. The iconic antagonist was originally rumored to be appearing in the third installment before becoming a part of the McU,

Unused Spider-Man: Far from Home Art Shows Mysterio's Arachnophobia-Inducing Illusions
Spider-Man: Far from Home nearly featured a pretty frightening vision scene involving some nasty gigantic spiders. The sequel already contains some pretty dark imagery, which was pretty surprising at times. The zombie version of Iron Man was definitely one of the darker elements of the movie, but most of Mysterio's power over Peter Parker was pretty messed up. Marvel Visual Development artist Henrik Tamm originally envisioned Tom Holland's Parker going up against some even more disturbing imaginary foes.

"Spiders vs Spidey! Exploratory concept painting of how Mysterio would use illusions to trap Peter," said Henrik Tamm in a caption of from one of his creepy unused images. Spider-Man: Far From Home nearly had Mysterio threatening Peter Parker with huge imaginary spiders. From the looks of Tamm's art, things were going to take a dark turn with Parker getting caught in a massive spider web. Each picture has a crazy

J.J. Abrams' New Spider-man Comic Book Takes a Surprising and Unexpected Turn

J.J. Abrams and his son Henry teamed up to write a new Spider-Man comic book for Marvel. We didn’t really know what to expect from it; I just figured it would be another typical Spider-Man story, but at the same time introduce a new villain. That villain is named Cadaverous.

Well, it turns out this isn’t your typical Spider-Man story. This story takes a surprising and unexpected turn that I didn’t see coming. If you haven’t read Spider-Man #1 yet…

The story for the comic is a very J.J. Abrams style story which starts out with a punch to the gut. In the prologue, Spider-Man finds himself fighting the new villain, Cadaverous. We don’t see how the fight started, but Spidey has been beat to hell and his arm is seriously jacked-up.

Poor Mary Jane ends up being killed by Cadaverous with a stab through the heart.

10 Things Sony Had Planned After The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Back in 2014, Sony saw its upcoming summer tentpole The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as a sure-fire hit. Executives were hoping that it would clear $1 billion, paving the way for an McU-style universe of films. They’d already jumped the gun on rushing sequels and spin-offs into development, banking on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a hit. However, owing to it being the worst Spidey outing since Spider-Man 3, audiences didn’t turn out for the film and it didn’t do well enough for Sony’s plans to come to fruition. So, here are 10 Things Sony Had Planned After The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man Deal Reportedly On Hold Due To Apple Possibly Buying Sony

It’s been a real rollercoaster ride for Spider-Man fans lately as we learned a few weeks ago that the web-slinger was out of the McU due to a breakdown of negotiations between Disney and Sony. Ever since, new reports and rumors have made it clear that the door is perhaps not fully closed on a new deal being brokered and the latest update on the ongoing saga concerns the possibility that Apple may buy out Sony Pictures.

As we’ve previously explained, if Sony is bought by another company, the rights to Spidey will revert to Marvel Studios. Given that, the latest info on the Disney/Sony situation is that it’s on hold. As Tvo of Lords of the Long Box points out, obviously the Mouse House is in no hurry to pay through the nose for the opportunity to use Peter Parker again when, if they’re patient,

Marvel Comics Is Introducing A New Spider-Man

J.J. Abrams is making the Spider-Man comics a father-son affair, both literally and figuratively. After a lot of speculation, it was recently revealed that the popular filmmaker is co-writing the new series with his son Henry and the duo are already making their mark on the beloved superhero.

Spider-Man #1 opens with Peter Parker dueling with a mysterious new antagonist named Cadaverous and his henchmen. Mary Jane goes to find her lover out on the battlefield, only to be impaled by the villain. As if this twist wasn’t shocking enough, we then learn that the couple has a child together.

Following that, the issue fast forwards 12 years into the future to find that Peter is no longer the web-slinging superhero we all know him as. He’s given up that life to focus on his career as a photojournalist. Unfortunately, this commitment has led to the deterioration of his relationship with his son.

Bruce Campbell Calls It Quits On The Evil Dead Franchise For Good

Bruce Campbell is one of the most recognizable character actors in the business today. He’s been working in films and television, in one way or another, since the 1970s and in that time, he’s starred in everything from the original Spider-Man movies to TV genre fare like Xena: Warrior Princess (he plays Autolycus and it’s even more amazing than you’re imagining). However, his most famous role is likely Ash Williams in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise.

Campbell has been the face of the series for nearly 40 years now, most recently slipping the chainsaw hand back on for the Starz production, Ash vs. Evil Dead. The program got a lot of buzz and was well liked by its core audience, but by the time the third season rolled around, the ratings had plummeted. As such, the premium cable channel decided to axe the revival and ever since then,

Marvel Reportedly Developing A Savage Land Movie For Phase 6

Marvel has many movie ideas, in various stages of development, reaching on for years to come, and here’s another one that’s reportedly on their list. We Got This Covered has been informed by our sources – the same ones who told us Black Knight was coming to the McU and that Ewan McGregor was returning as Obi-Wan – that the studio has plans to do a movie based around the Savage Land.

Practically as old as Marvel itself – originally debuting back in 1941 before being revamped by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965 – the Savage Land is a lost tropical paradise located in Antarctica, home to all kinds of prehistoric creatures. Its most famous inhabitant is Tarzan-like jungle man Ka-Zar, who’s been a useful ally to many a Marvel hero over the years, most notably the X-Men and Spider-Man.

Spider-Man to Join Venom and Morbius in the Sonyverse

Well, say goodbye to Spider-Man in the McU for now and welcome him back to the Sony family since it looks as though, according to Kevin Burwick of MovieWeb he’ll finally be interacting with Venom and Morbius the living vampire, characters who have been big parts of the webslinger’s legend throughout the years as it is. Honestly, seeing Venom without Spider-Man was kind of difficult for a lot of fans even though the Venom movie was actually well-received. Ignoring the hurt and confused fans, for the moment, that are crying over Spider-Man being yanked away by Sony who now thinks

Official Night Monkey Trailer Arrives Following Spider-Man's Split from the McU

  • MovieWeb
Sony has released a new trailer for The Night Monkey. Or, to be more precise, a trailer for the digital release of Spider-Man: Far from Home that plays on Peter Parker's alter ego from the movie. In many cases, this would just be viewed as a cute marketing ploy. However, given everything that has happened, what with Sony splitting with Disney over the future of the Spider-Man franchise, this takes on a whole new meaning.

The trailer is positioned as a darker tale than Spider-Man: Far From Home was in most of its marketing. We see Tom Holland's Peter Parker, exclusively in his black suit, taking on the name of The Night Monkey. This all came from a joke during a key sequence in the movie where Ned was trying to protect his friend's secret identity. The moment in question is included in this trailer. The spot also features the following tagline.

Sony Debuts Hilarious Spider-Man Spoof Trailer For The Night Monkey

If you’re a Spider-Man fan – and really, who isn’t? – then the past few weeks have probably been a pretty rough ride for you. After Disney and Sony Pictures couldn’t come to an agreement for future Spidey films, the two companies parted ways, which means until we hear otherwise, the current incarnation of Spider-Man is no longer in the McU.

That doesn’t mean Peter Parker won’t return to the big screen, though, as we already know that Sony has plans for several more movies featuring the web-slinger. And while we don’t know when they’ll be here or how they’ll continue the hero’s adventure, to tide us over, Sony has now dropped the first official trailer for The Night Monkey.

No, your eyes don’t deceive you. The studio has actually cut together a pretty awesome preview for The Night Monkey, which fans

Spider-Man: Far from Home Beats Captain Marvel as 3rd Biggest Movie of 2019

Spider-Man: Far from Home Beats Captain Marvel as 3rd Biggest Movie of 2019
Spider-Man: Far from Home has quietly managed to accomplish a major box office milestone. Over the weekend, the sequel overtook Captain Marvel, very narrowly, to become the third biggest movie of 2019. This normally would be viewed as a win/win for Marvel, but given the recent split between Sony and Disney when it comes to future entries in the Spider-Man franchise, the implications of this feel particularly magnified.

According to the most recent box office numbers available, Spider-Man: Far From Home has now earned $1,128,276,196 worldwide, narrowly overtaking Captain Marvel, which earned $1,128,274,794 worldwide during its run earlier this year. Both Tom Holland's Spider-Man and Brie Larson's Carol Danvers appeared in this year's third Marvel Cinematic Universe offering, Avengers: Endgame, which went on to become the highest-grossing movie ever with a massive $2.79 billion take. The second-biggest movie of the year also belongs to Disney with The Lion King, which currently stands at $1.61 billion globally.

‘Avengers’ Director Joe Russo Says Sony Is Making ‘Tragic Mistake’ With Spider-Man After McU Exit

‘Avengers’ Director Joe Russo Says Sony Is Making ‘Tragic Mistake’ With Spider-Man After McU Exit
Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo have already gone on record saying they’re “not surprised” by Spider-Man’s exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the two were a bit more critical on the Disney-Sony drama in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun. The two studios failed to negotiate new terms for sharing the Spider-Man character. The Russo brothers got to introduce Tom Holland’s Spider-Man into the McU in “Captain America: Civil War.” but the Disney-Marvel split means Holland will no longer appear in the McU.

The Russo brothers originally said they were not surprised by the Disney-Marvel split because of how intense of a process it was to get the two companies to agree on sharing Spider-Man in the first place. Anthony reiterated this point to the Toronto Sun by saying, “It was so difficult to get him into ‘Civil War.’ It
