Spidey Trades In Blue For Black In Set Photos From 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Revealing Another New Suit

Spider-Man: Far From Home has officially wrapped shooting this past week, but fans were still able to get some last minute photos of what appears to be yet another new suit. It feels like almost every set photo we've seen from this movie has been of a new variation of the iconic costume that the wall-crawler will be wearing, but this one feels the most definite. The suit in the set photos seems to be an upgrade from the Stark suit given to Peter Parker in Civil War, but with the clear difference being the new color scheme. We have our first on screen version of Spider-Man to wear a black and red suit, which the character has worn in the comics. We also see a white symbol in the back which surely has taken inspiration from the Spider-Man: PS4 suit.

With all these set photos a videos scattered across the internet, Marvel decided to just have Tom Holland officially show off the new suit on the Jimmy Kimmel show last night:
Take a look at the set photos below:
Now as I said above, the suit has already drawn comparisons to certain suits from the comics with the same colors. Fans will remember the recent Superior Spider-Man storyline that saw Doc Ock become Spider-Man featured a very similar looking suit. There's been mixed reaction to the departure from the traditional blue and red scheme, but ultimately I feel it gives a more mature and fresh look to the character. We still don't know if Tony Stark or possibly S.H.I.E.L.D. have provided Parker with this suit, or if he made it on his own like he does in the comics. Its worth noting the suit also resemble a S.H.I.E.L.D. Spider-Man suit recently shown in the comics, so this could be a hit they've provided him with this one as well.
So far we know that the original Homecoming suit will indeed show up in the film, most likely at the beginning. We've also seen set photos of the "Stealth suit" that looks similar to the Spider-Man Noir look from the comics, and also has a S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem on it. That suit will be worn at some point when Mysterio faces off against Spider-Man as we can tell from the set photos, so its likely he was given that suit for the specific situation. We know most of the movie will be taking place on Peter Parker's class trip to Europe, but these recent set photos with Zendaya take place in Manhattan at Union Station. It's likely this scene will take place later in the movie once Peter has returned home, and that's probably when we'll be seeing the new suit make its debut.
Story wise, there isn't much else we can decipher from these set photos other then that Michelle is swinging through the city with Spider-Man. Its been made apparent since the first movie that Michelle might be this universe's version of Mary Jane, and that would mean at some point she becomes romantically involved with Peter. While she seemed to have been catching on to Peter keeping some kind of secret in Homecoming, its hard to tell if in this scene she already knows he's the one behind the mask. Spider-Man might just be saving her from some kind of danger, but it could also be a romantic web swinging between Michelle and Peter like we saw in the Raimi movies.
So how do you feel about the new Spider-Man suit? Are you okay with the black and red? Do you think Michelle will know Peter is Spider-Man? Let us know below!

DC Have Tapped Former Marvel Director James Gunn To Write And Possibly Direct 'Suicide Squad 2'

I have to admit, few things surprise me anymore when it comes to comic book movie news. But this right here I can honestly say I didn't see coming. After being controversially fired by DC and Marvel Studios following the unearthing of tweets made before his days as a blockbuster director, James Gunn was to have no involvement with the already planned Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Actors from the director's acclaimed film series and fans alike voiced there displeasure with this decision, but it was ultimately made clear Disney had no intention of rehiring him. With Gunn seemingly out of a job, comic book fans joked DC could afford to take the gamble and hire him. Yet none of us actually thought they'd do it, with Gunn now apparently involved with the development of the Suicide Squad sequel.

The news comes courtesy of The Wrap who report that Gunn will not only be writing the script for the movie, but is also in talks to direct it. Previously Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) was believed to be on board to helm the project, taking the reins from David Ayer (Fury). Ayer of course has voiced his problems with the first film and how it was received critically, and how the original cut had been modified through the the heavy involvement of Warner Brothers. This included the controversial ending, depiction and overall screen time of Jared Leto's Joker, and more tonal issues that just created another roadblock for the DC film universe.
With all the controversy aside, Gunn is of course an extremely talented and creative director credited with making the MCU's cosmic universe what it is today. Gunn took a group of relatively unknown comic book characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy and made them into household names, with a creative and fun approach to the soundtrack and design of the world, as well as a great dynamic between the group of actors he cast. This in many ways was what DC was trying to replicate with the first Suicide Squad movie, so it only seems right to get the guy whose already proven he can do it correctly.
Reports have even suggested the Gunn's adaption of Suicide Squad may be a reboot, with roles possibly recast or a new group of characters being introduced. The first movie did in fact have some big names on board including Will Smith and Margot Robbie, so I'm not sure DC would be willing to give them up especially considering what they could do with a script written by Gunn. Smith and Robbie were both considered standouts of the first movie and have expressed interest in reprising their roles, and its already been suggested we would be seeing roster changes in the sequel. Only time will tell what approach Gunn decides to take, but it'll apparently be a stark departure from what O'Connor originally had planned.
So how do you feel about James Gunn directing Suicide Squad 2? Do you think this was the right project for him? Did Marvel make a mistake letting him go? Let us know below!

Jon Favreau's 'Star Wars' TV Show Will Be Titled 'The Mandalorian'; Images, Details, and Directors Revealed

Since the moment Disney bought LucasFilm, the company hasn't stopped producing as much Star Wars content as they can. But unfortunately following the disappointment of Solo: A Star Wars Story early this year, the studio has scrapped plans for other spin-off projects and has decided to focus on the current trilogy of films. But this recent news certainly doesn't apply to TV shows, as Jon Favreau's long awaited live-action Star Wars series finally found a perfect home with Disney's new streaming service. Now we have gotten new details about the show including what it will be about, what big name directors are on board, and who may be starring as the lead. 

Favreau who is executive producing and writing the series revealed that it will in fact be called The Mandalorian, who exist as a race of warriors in the Star Wars universe that includes the likes of Jango and Boba Fett. This of course explains why the main character we see in the first image from the show (Which you can see above) is wearing their same armor. The series will be taking place three years after the events of Return of the Jedi, with the galaxy now under the role of the New Republic. This is a time period that hasn't yet been explored in the Star Wars films, and could also tease some things that happen in the current trilogy. 
The plot description seen above explains that the lead will be from the Mandalorian planet, but is described as a lone gunslinger. Despite this, we're sure to get some more insight into this person's past and the civilization they came from through some kind of flashbacks or backstory. Dave Filoni is apparently going to direct the pilot episode, and he's someone who is best known for his work on the successful Disney XD series Star Wars: Rebels, and Clone Wars. The Mandalorian culture is something that Filoni already has explored in Rebels, and will more than likely re-explore here. Other big time directors who have come on board include Bryce Dallas Horward (Solemates), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), and fan favorite Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
Its unknown just how many episodes each director will be working on, but we're expecting about a ten episode season considering the length of the Marvel shows that are going to be on Disney Plus. Waititi particularly is someone who Star Wars fans have even wanted to see play Boba Fett, but had ultimately said he wouldn't work on a film in the series. Well I guess this technically doesn't count. Rumors have also suggested that the main role of the show will be played by Pedro Pascal, but this has yet to be confirmed. The role certainly seems like something up Pascal's alley given the type of morally ambiguous yet charismatic characters he's played on shows like Narcos and Game of Thrones.
So are you excited about The Mandalorian? What other directors would you have liked to see work on the show? Let us know below!

Rumors Suggest Marvel Studios Has Commissioned A Script For A Film Adaption Of 'The Dark Avengers'

At this point in time, it really hard to tell what the future has in store for the MCU. We don't exactly know what will result from the events of Avengers 4, but we could be seeing goodbye to a lot of the major players that have headlined these movies the last few years. Having said that, this paves the way for Marvel to bring in even more characters and movies based on them including a solo movie for Black Widow and an Eternals movie that have both already been announced. There's also the questions that still remain about the Fox deal, and whether we'll be getting an MCU reboot of the X-Men or Fantastic Four anytime soon. Well news might have just broke about one property we can expect to see adapted by the studio in the meantime.

That Hashtag Show are reporting that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has apparently asked for a Dark Avengers script to be written. Now if this is true, that doesn't necessarily mean a movie is already in development. The studio still has several sequels to properties they've already established such as Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to worry about right now. But the studio hasn't let this stop them from hiring directors for both Black Widow and The Eternals, which seem to officially be in the works despite not having release dates yet.
The Dark Avengers would certainly be any interesting team to bring to the big screen, as they're essentially reformed villains pretending to be superheroes. They're formed by the Green Goblin himself Norman Osborn, who becomes in charge of an organization known as H.A.M.M.E.R. that has replaced S.H.I.E.L.D. following the events of the Skrulls secret invasion. He puts together a team that includes former Scorpion Mac Gargan as a Venom/Spider-Man hybrid, Wolverine's son Daken disguised as his father, Daredevil villain Bullseye as Hawkeye, the god Ares, Moondragon as Ms. Marvel, Sentry, and Osborn himself as the Iron Patriot.
Its unknown how the team would fit into the current landscape of the MCU, as the Spider-Man movies haven't even introduced Norman who is pivotal to all this. Marvel will soon own all the rights to these characters following the Fox deal, so they could possibly start planting the seeds by having them make appearances prior to their team up. Mac Gargan and Bullseye both have already made appearances in the MCU, and you may remember James Rhodes suiting up as Iron Patriot in Iron Man 3. Captain Marvel is also introducing the Skrulls, which may lead to an adaption of Secret Invasion and ultimately explain the creation of The Dark Avengers.
So how do you feel about this rumor? Would like to see Marvel bring the Dark Avengers to the big screen? Let us know below!

'Aquaman' Five Minute Trailer Shows Us More Black Manta, Mera, Atlantis, And The Classic Costume

Its certainly a confusing time to be a DC fan. One week, you're crying over the fact Henry Cavill might not be Superman anymore, the next you're pleasantly surprised by the first look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. With no clear plan in sight, all we can do as fans is simply sit back and enjoy what movies the studio has already completed, specifically Aquaman and Shazam!. Both movies seem to mark a huge tonal shift for the DCEU, with surprisingly impressive and light hearted trailers that debuted at Comic-Con earlier this year. It looks like Warner Bros. really wants to get fans on board for Aquaman with just a few months left until its release, as they've released five whooping minutes of footage from the upcoming blockbuster.

Below is the five minute extended trailer for Aquaman:
Well if you didn't have an idea of what to expect from this movie before hand, you sure should now. Its clear this will very much be an origin story for Arthur Curry, with a lot of flashbacks to his past and his mother played by Nicole Kidman who is from Atlantis herself. We'll also apparently get a lot of info on the mythology of the Atlanteans, similar to what we got from the Jor-El scenes in Man of Steel explaining Krypton. This trailer alone has helped explain just how important the King of Atlantis is, and why its imperative Arthur takes up the mantle rather then his rival Ocean Master.
What may be a bit more surprising to fans about the trailer is just how much of it will apparently feature Arthur and Mera's adventure on land. The movie's director James Wan has drawn comparisons to films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the Stone, which seems accurate given the rough chase sequence (That looks straight out of an Uncharted game). It seems this will probably be the first half of the movie, where Mera comes to land to retrieve Arthur and convince him to challenge for the throne. It's here that they'll be encountering Black Manta and his army as we see in the trailer, but its hard to tell whether the villain is working alone, or following orders from Ocean Master.
There's also a much better look at The Trench and the monstrous fish who inhabit it, which was something Wan had teased in the past. The Trench has been featured in the more recent New 52 comics, and could also somehow be under Ocean Master's control in the movie. Given Wan's horror roots, its no surprise he wants to adapt this part of the comics to the big screen and will likely go all out to make it as visually terrorizing as possible. With some many villains already in the film, its likely The Trench won't be playing as big a role but might just be a tease for a sequel.
So what did you think of all the Aquaman footage? Do you feel like Warner Bros. is showing too much? Let us know below!

Chris Evans Takes To Twitter To Announce He's Wrapped On 'Avengers 4' And May Be Done Playing Cap

In a year where fans have already been devastated to hear Henry Cavill may not be our Superman anymore (Something we still haven't had clarified for us), we may be seeing yet another actor's time playing an iconic superhero coming to an end. For some time now, Marvel fans have known that Chris Evans' multi-year contract with the company would be coming to an end following Infinity War and Avengers 4. This had led to a rampant rumors since the release of Civil War, that Steve Rogers would be killed off in some way to make room for Bucky Barnes to be the new Captain America. While we may not for sure what will happen to the character until next May, Evans may have just given us all a huge hint.

With Avengers 4 wrapping production, Evans tweeted to the following to thank fans: "Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful." Now you can take this quote one of two ways. Evans may simply be thanking the fans and showing his gratitude for the opportunity to play this role years later. Or, there's the way most fans have interpreted it which is that Steve Rogers will be written out of the MCU in some way. 
The context of the tweet and the way it was written certainly does feel like Evans giving his final farewell to the character, but it would seem odd for the ultra-secretive Marvel Studios to tweet something so revealing. If this tweet does turn out to be what fans are dreading, and Rogers is killed off in Avengers 4, it certainly won't have the same surprise and shock value the Russo brothers got from Infinity War. Chances are, whatever audiences are expecting probably isn't what's going to happen, and that includes Captain America's death. They could always take some alternative approach of writing him off such as having him retire, or simply surprise us by renewing Evans contract.
Evans has expressed interest in moving on from the role that made him a star in the past, with the obligations to the part and amount of films he has to be in getting in the way of some other parts of his career he's wanted to pursue. With the actor already taking a dip in the directing scene, he's also recently just joined an upcoming Rian Johnson film. For both Evans and Robert Downey Jr., two cornerstones of the MCU, giving their characters a proper conclusion is such a big film like Avengers 4 seems like the right way to go about it. Now whether that means killing them off, having them retire, or some other creative approach, the folks over at Marvel certainly have thought this one through.
So how do you feel about Chris Evans possibly leaving the role of Captain America? What do you think will happen to him in Avengers 4? Let us know below!

'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Set Photos Give Us Our First Look At Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio And A New Suit

Its a great time to be a Spider-Man fan, and take that from one of them. With Venom releasing in theaters this week (Despite lackluster reviews), Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse just around the corner, a new Spider-Man video game that has surpassed expectations, and a chance to see the wallcrawler on the big screen twice next year, most of us couldn't be happier. Just when we thought we hadn't gotten as much as we were going to get this week, several new set photos dropped from the European set of Spider-Man: Far From Home; the sequel to 2017's Homecoming. The set photos not only give us our first look a comic accurate Mysterio (Minus the bowl head), but a look at a new all black stealth Spider-Man suit that seems to have been provided by S.H.I.E.L.D.

Below are the set photos from Spider-Man: Far From Home:
Now the first set photos are of course of Jake Gyllenhaal in full costume as Mysterio. Much the delight of fans, it seems the outfit will be very accurate to the comics. This includes the purple cape, green color scheme to most of us suit, and gold on his arms and feet. Notably absent is of course the famous fish bowl looking head Mysterio wears over his head to protect his identity, which he also fills with mist. He may just not be wearing in this specific scene, but its possible that Jon Watts may have script the bowl due to how ridiculous some feels it would look in live action. While fans are hoping this isn't the case, this Mysterio may be using a technique more similar to the Ultimate comics where he hides his face behind a white mist without the actual bowl covering it.
As for the Spider-Man suit we've seen in the pictures, people were quick to draw comparisons to it and the Spider-Man Noir suit from the comics. While Spider-Man Noir exists in an alternate universe and likely has no part in this movie, the influences of this suit on the one being used in the movie are clear. The goggles and vested look specifically are very reminiscent of Noir, but in the latest set photos we also see a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on his upper chest. This probably means that at some point Nick Fury and Maria Hill, who are confirmed to appear in the movie, help Peter and provide him with a new suit to take on Mysterio.
Although these have been the most notable and revealing of the Far From Home set pics, we have also seen many of Peter and his schoolmates on their class trip in different parts of Europe. Martin Starr, Tony Revolori, and of course Jacob Batalon and Zendaya have all been prevalent in these. There's also been the appearance of another masked character who has been speculated to be the villain Chameleon, but may also just be an illusion created by Mysterio, or some random new character. We've heard rumors of other villains such as Hydro-Man and Molten Man appearing in side roles alongside Mysterio, with speculation suggesting any of these could be the mystery character Remy Hii (Crazy Rich Asians) is playing.
So what do you think of these set photos? Are you happy with how they've adapted Mysterio? Are you a fan of Spider-Man's new suit? Let us know below!

New 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' Trailer Shows Us The Spider-Man Team-Up We Never Knew We Wanted

To be completely honest, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse pretty didn't have to show us anything but the movie's amazing visuals for us to love it. But the trailer already gave us a glimpse of what to expect from the Miles Morales centric movie, with an older Peter Parker mentoring the young new Spider-Man. But now we've gotten an all new trailer that answers one of the biggest questions we've had about this movie, what is the actual plot? Well apparently we'll be getting a multitude of fan favorite iterations of Spider-Men (and Spider-Gwen) who are coming from different universes to help Miles stop Kingpin from destroying his city.

Below is the all new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse:
The movie is definitely taking a much more meta and self aware approach then we've ever seen Spider-Man before, so basically think family friendly Deadpool. There's references to past Spider-Man movies during Peter Parker's opening monologue, as well as acknowledgement of how he's a comic book character and a famous brand in general. This Peter seems to be a far cry from the clean cut version we're used to seeing, with a much more worn down and care free attitude. What we learn about him in this trailer is that he isn't the current Spider-Man in Miles' world, but is in fact from a separate universe just like the others.
While we know there's going to be several different Spider-Men from different universes who makes cameos, this trailer gives us an idea of who the core group will be. The much more comedic Spider-Ham will be a member of the group, as well as the old-fashioned Spider-Man Noir voiced my Nicolas Cage, the Japanese Peni Parker alongside her mech suit, and Spider-Gwen voiced by Hailee Steinfeld. The three will apparently be meeting up with Peter and Miles from their own respective universes at some point in the movie to take on the main baddie from his own universe; Kingpin (Liev Shreiber). 
Kingpin will apparently be the one who creates a machine known as "the collider" which is what manages to connect all the universes and allow for characters to cross over. This machine is also apparently what is threatening to destroy Miles' version of Brooklyn, where he is apparently their only Spider-Man despite his dad mentioning a previous one. Its possible that this portal is also where the villains such as Scorpion, Tombstone, and Green Goblin all came from other universes.
So what did you think of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer? Are there any other references you caught? Let us know below!

First Trailer For 'Dark Phoenix' Shows Us Fox's Second Chance At Adapting The Famed Comic Storyline

With Hugh Jackman officially done as Wolverine, Bryan Singer no longer in the director's chair, and the purchase of Fox by Disney all but confirmed, the end of the current iteration of X-Men movies since to be here. But amongst all the excitement of seeing the X-Men and all the characters that come with them finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe under the guidance of Kevin Fiege, many have forgotten there's still a Fox X-Men movie hitting theaters next year. Continuing from where the events of X-Men: Apocalypse left us, Dark Phoenix will be the studio's second attempt at adapting the famous storyline involving and evil overpowered Jean Grey following the backlash of X-Men: The Last Stand over a decade ago.

Below is the first trailer for Dark Phoenix:
The trailer shows a lot of what fans have come to expect from the recent series of movies, with main team set up at the end of Apocalypse all back. Once again Magneto will apparently be at odds with Xavier despite seeming to have found peace with him at the end of the last movie. Its hard to tell what will be the relationship between Jean and Magneto here but it seems he also fears the strength of her powers and harm she can cause in the same way Xavier does. We also see a funeral which has already been predicted by many fans to be Mystique's, which would make sense given how frustrated Hank McCoy seems to be with Xavier.
It seems a major theme this movie will be exploring is whether the X-Men should trust Xavier after what he did to hide Jean's powers. The death of Mystique would certainly explain why Hank McCoy seems to be on Magneto's side of the fight later on in the trailer, as he had strong romantic feelings for her in the past films. Its hard to tell where Jessica Chastain's character fits into all this, but it seems rumors that she would be a Skrull tied to the origins of the Dark Phoenix may be false.
One of the main criticisms this trailer has gotten from fans is just how familiar it feels, specifically to The Last Stand. The former did adapt the Dark Phoenix storyline and led to tragedy amongst the team with both Cyclops and Professor X meeting their end, and her team up with Magneto also being included. Fortunately this movie will apparently have much more time to flesh out the story without the subplot of the mutant cure that was mixed into Last Stand. Fans are are patiently waiting to see these characters in the hands of Marvel Studios even rejoiced at rumors the movie could be canceled because of the Fox deal, but the release date has simply been delayed to June 7th, 2019. 
So what did you think of the Dark Phoenix trailer? Are you okay with Fox adapting the same storyline twice? Let us know below!

Second 'Creed 2' Trailer Shows Rocky Balboa And Adonis Meeting Face To Face With Ivan Drago Himself

The Rocky movies brought us many iconic opponents through the years, but probably known are as infamous as the Russian Ivan Drago. In a movie released during the times of the Soviet Union, Drago made his mark in the minds of audiences forever when he killed one of Rocky's closest friend Apollo Creed in the ring. Now with a new series focusing on Creed's son Adonis, it was only a matter of time before we got a return for the many who killed his father. But things are even more personal, now that Drago's son wants to take on Adonis himself. Its a story that fans have been waiting to see since this new series started, and now we're finally getting to see it come to reality.

Below is the second official trailer for Creed 2
With the first film's director Ryan Coogler stepping down to a producer role for the sequel, some were worried the new film would not be able to live up to the quality of the first in the hands of Steven Caple Jr. While we won't know for sure until the movie hits theaters, this trailer really captures the same dramatic dialogue and performances from Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone in the first. Focusing much more on a now family man and settled down version of Adonis, who even has a kid much like Balboa himself did. This story feels much more personal not only because its one of revenge, but also due to his desire to protect those he loves.
Fans are sure to get a kick out of seeing Dolph Lundgren's Drago who is now training his son to fight Creed come face to face with Balboa. Although we won't be getting to see the two in the ring against each other for obvious reasons, it'll be interesting to see the back and forth and scenes they share together after years of built up hate toward each other. Its already been speculated heavily that Balboa could meet his end in this movie, which if true is certainly going to add another complex layer to this already emotional story.
While Creed's motivations are pretty clear in this movie, its unknown just what exactly is motivating Viktor Drago. The line in the trailer that Balboa tells Creed about Viktor "being raised in hate" definitely sounds interesting, and its possible he too hold resentment towards Balboa and Creed for all the hate his father and their family have received following the match years ago. Florian Munteanu who himself is a boxer is going to be playing the role, with really only one acting credit to his name. It'll be interesting to see how he holds up against polished actors like Stallone, Jordan, Lundgren, and Tessa Thompson.
So are you excited for see another Creed vs Drago fight? Do you think Rocky will die in this movie? Let us know below!
