Costume upgrades are pretty standard when it comes to superhero movies, and for the next X-Men outing, Dark Phoenix, our good super kids are getting some new gadgets too. Most importantly, Cyclops will have a new visor that’ll make him look a whole lot more like his older James Marsden counterpart (and a little less sillier than his Apocalypse look did).
The Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider reboot is nigh, and will show us who Lara Croft was before she became the raider of tombs immortalized in like a billion video games. As part of their Comic Con preview, Entertainment Weekly released a new image of Vikander as Croft, hanging on to a cliff for dear life, as you do.
Marvel loves to sneak Easter eggs of all sizes into their films for comic fans to parse through — it cam be something as big as Nick Fury’s post-credits appearance in the first Iron Man or something as small as a billboard in Thor advertising a “journey into mystery.” Spider-Man: Homecoming snuck a few references of its own in, one of which has caused some major speculation among fans about certain ancient religions.
The toy controversies just never stop, do they? With #WheresRey and the Black Widow and Gamora controversies only just behind us, it seems like toy companies would have gotten the hint by now. But Hasbro’s Star Wars Monopoly game unveiled after The Force Awakens opened still hasn’t fixed their Rey problem. Well, they’ve fixed it overseas, but apparently Americans just aren’t interested enough.
One of the most delightful parts of Spider-Man: Homecoming is how cleverly the Avengers are integrated into the world. Gone are the vague statements like “the disaster in New York” — now we have school PSAs recorded by the most sensible Avenger, Captain America himself. We see a few of those PSAs in the movie, but apparently Chris Evans recorded a bunch of them in character, and they’ll all be on the home video release.
Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage, based on the video game about monster-sized animals that terrorize a city, is currently filming, and The Rock really, really wants us all to be excited about that. He’s been posting photos from the set for the past few weeks, and his latest comes with one caveat: Don’t you dare tell The Rock that he runs like Tom Cruise.
Matt Reeves has a pretty intimidating task ahead of him with The Batman: He’ll have to fill the shoes that Ben Affleck himself almost wore as director, and he’ll also have to make a solo superhero film that stacks up against Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which has bested all four of its DCEU predecessors at the domestic box office. He already has a few plans up his sleeve, one of which is to make it more like Planet of the Apes.
You know those early 2000s romantic comedies that always had the two leads standing back-to-back with “WELP” expressions on their faces on the DVD covers? Imagine that, but with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey and you’ve got the newest international poster for The Dark Tower.
“My Spider Sense is tingling” is the most classic of Spider-Man catchphrases — but you won’t hear it in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming. The newest version of our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is different than his filmic predecessors in many ways, a big one being his lack of the traditional Spidey Sense, which alerts him to the presence of dangers he can’t immediately see. Homecoming director Jon Watts explained that the decision to leave his sixth sense out of the movie was very much on purpose.
We all knew Wonder Woman was going to be a box office hit — passing $1 million in its opening weekend, becoming the highest-grossing female-directed live-action film ever made shortly after that — and how it’s shattered a new record. Wonder Woman is now the highest-grossing movie of the DC Extended Universe, passing Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman in box office sales.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is poised to bring Spidey back in a big way, and if early reactions from critics are any indication, this might be the best Spider-Man movie yet.* What comes next for our friendly neighborhood web-slinger? Well, he’ll be in both of the next two Avengers movies — Infinity War and the untitled film that comes immediately after that — and we already know he’s getting a sequel. We also know, as of today, that that sequel will pick up right after, and I mean right after, Avengers 4 concludes.
We all know by now that Marvel are pros at keeping secrets, and at keeping their actors’ and directors’ mouths shut through some probable combination of Godfather-like threats, wizardry, and those flashing lights from the Men in Black movies that remove people’s memories. Out of all the actors in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, the one who will no doubt keep those movies secrets the best Tom Holland — because they won’t even let him touch the script.
