When it was announced that Sony and Disney would be working together to bring Spider-Man into the MCU, it was a huge deal. Sony has attempted several Spider-Man movies in the past, but due to the fact that it existed separate to other Marvel movies, it always felt that something was not right.
Following the success of Spider-Man: Far From Home and with the way the movie ended, it was largely assumed that there would be a third Spider-Man movie in the works. While there still might be, it seems that Marvel/Disney’s involvement with the movie could be at an end, at least according to a report from Deadline.
Apart from Marvel’s own series of movies, Deadpool was one of the few non-Marvel owned movies that did exceptionally well, especially considering that it was an R-rated movie which meant that it limited the scope of its audience. Now that Disney owns Fox, and thus Deadpool, we’re sure many are wondering how Deadpool will fit into the MCU.
Marvel’s Spider-Man movie franchise has been rebooted twice, and it seems that the third time is the charm because according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, they are claiming that the most recent Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home, has managed to earn $1 billion worldwide.
If you’re a fan of Disney, Pixar, or Marvel movies and wouldn’t mind watching it in 4K, you might be interested to learn that Google Play might be the place to get it from. This is because Google has recently started to offer up movies from those franchises in 4K, an interesting move given that Disney does not typically make 4K content available online for purchase.
Now that Marvel has officially confirmed their plans for the MCU’s fourth phase, we’re sure that there are many questions remaining. For example, what happened to the sequels to Captain Marvel and Black Panther? Also, what about Marvel’s plans for the X-Men and Fantastic Four, now that Disney has acquired Fox?
Now that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s third phase is over, many are wondering what will Phase 4 be bringing to the table. There have been rumors about what movies will be part of Phase 4, such as The Eternals and also Shang-Chi. It turns out the rumors were spot on because Marvel has since confirmed their plans for Phase 4.
Here’s something that not many Marvel fans were expecting. Marvel confirmed at the San Diego Comic-Con that it’s rebooting Blade and also announced that Mahershala Ali of True Detective fame will be starring in this reboot. Many Marvel fans would be aware that Blade was one of the first superheroes from the repertoire to become a hit on film.
Given what a monumental hit Avengers: Endgame proved to be, it was expected that this film would top James Cameron’s Avatar from 2009 as the biggest film of all-time. Avatar has held the top spot for a decade now and has finally been overtaken by Avengers: Endgame, a fitting achievement for the movie that cap’s Marvel’s 22 movie arc which started back in 2008.
The first two Thor movies could be somewhat considered to be some of the weaker releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but then just when we were about to give up hope, Thor Ragnarok arrived helmed by director Taika Waititi and not only revitalized the franchise, but also seemed to provide a new direction for the character that was very different from the previous releases.
As many of you have heard by now, all of Marvel’s Netflix shows have been pulled from the streaming platform. If you love the props that were used in the shows, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Marvel plans on holding an auction in which some of the props in the shows will be auctioned off.
If you’re looking to catch Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home this coming weekend, you might want to steer clear of social media. This is because according to reports, it appears that full pirated copies of the movie have already made their way online. This is because while the rest of the world will be seeing the movie this week, it was actually released earlier in China last Friday.
When it comes to Spider-Man villains, Venom is probably one of the more recognizable ones. In fact, many years ago, Venom made his debut in a Spider-Man movie, although many did not really seem to enjoy Topher Grace’s portrayal of the character. We got a second chance with Tom Hardy in which the movie was much better received.
Actor Keanu Reeves has been in the industry for a very long time, but it seems that the actor is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. This is a combination of various factors, such as the success of his John Wick movies (in which a part 4 is expected for 2021) and stories about his ground-to-earthness.
