Face It, Tiger, the Early Buzz for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Is Pretty Great
According to census estimates, there are currently 325.3 million people in the United States, which means there has to be dozens  —  maybe even hundreds!  —  of people who remain blissfully unaware that a new Spider-Man movie is hitting theaters this summer. The rest of us, however, have lived through the past several months of production rumors, trailers, teasers, teaser trailers, toy reveals, interviews, commercials, specials, features, articles, social advertising, news items, and just about any other form of audio or visual media that Marvel could commercially or organically slap a Spider-Man: Homecoming logo on. In fact, we’ve reached that point in the hype cycle where most fans are completely exhausted with marketing. Can’t we just start talking about the movie itself?
Chris Pine Is Not a Fan of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and Violent Comic Book Movies
Chris Pine Is Not a Fan of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and Violent Comic Book Movies
Behold Chris Pine in all his magnificent handsomeness. The strong jawline. The relaxed confidence. The way with a fedora (New Indiana Jones, anyone?) This is the Chris Pine of Wonder Woman, where he plays Steve Trevor, WWI spy and love interest of Gal Gadot’s Diana. After Trevor’s plane crashes off the coast of Diana’s island home, he becomes the first man to step foot on Themyscira. And Pine, already a star for his portrayal of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek reboot series, is terrific in the role, and great with Gadot. He turns Steve Trevor into one of the best non-super-powered characters in superhero movie history.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ TV Spot Shouts Out to the Avengers
In case you somehow didn’t know (do you even have the internet? How are you reading this?), Sony wants to make it perfectly clear: Spider-Man is pals with the Avengers now, and thanks to the participation of Marvel, the latest reboot of everyone’s favorite web-slinging superhero features a few familiar faces from the MCU. The new (and extended) TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming leans pretty heavily on that element with some serious shout-outs to Spidey’s super-friends.
James Gunn Almost Didn’t Return to Direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’
James Gunn Almost Didn’t Return to Direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’
No Marvel franchise is synonymous with a single filmmaker — except for Guardians of the Galaxy, which was transformed from an obscure niche sci-fi series into one of the biggest film series on the planet by writer/director James Gunn. He returned for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and he’s already announced he’ll be back at least one more time to make Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. But it almost didn’t happen.
‘Wonder Woman’ Poll Reveals 92 Percent of Moviegoers Want to See a Female Superhero Film, So Why Has It Taken This Long?
‘Wonder Woman’ Poll Reveals 92 Percent of Moviegoers Want to See a Female Superhero Film, So Why Has It Taken This Long?
92 percent. That’s the number of moviegoers who want to see a female-led superhero movie, according to the results of a new poll released to coincide with advance ticket sales for Wonder Woman. 92 percent isn’t shocking, but what is shocking is that despite OBVIOUS audience interest, it’s been over 10 years since the last superhero movie featuring a woman hit theaters. What gives?
James Gunn Confirms Ayesha’s Return in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has only been in theaters for less than a week, which — in the internet’s infinitely fickle estimation — means it’s time to start focusing on the next chapter in Marvel’s intergalactic superhero saga. It’ll probably be another three or four years before we see our favorite bunch of a-holes back on the big screen, but director James Gunn is already fielding questions about his plans for Vol. 3.
10 Lingering Questions We Have After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’
10 Lingering Questions We Have After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reigned supreme at the box office last weekend, earning $145 million in its first days of U.S. release. The movie also garnered solid reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore. People dig it. We did too! But that doesn’t mean it didn’t leave us with a couple lingering questions, both about some of the film’s finer plot points, and about what they mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s ten of the things we’re still thinking about after #GOTG2.
New ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Photos Highlight Peter Parker’s High School Experience
New ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Photos Highlight Peter Parker’s High School Experience
One of the peculiar things about the current slate of superhero movies it how thoroughly they nail the big moments and sometimes slip on the small ones. Take Iron Man, for example. The films have routinely nailed Tony Stark’s arrogance and desire to protect the world from all threats foreign and domestic, but some of the underlying reasoning behind that drive —  Stark’s history as an alcoholic and addict  —  have routinely been shoved to the background of the movies. The same could be said of Spider-Man. While the last five films have given us epic moments of slingin’ webs, they’ve often lost the high-school camaraderie that explains so much of Peter Parker’s superhero worldview.
