Marvel and Sony have announced that, after ousting the fantastic Andrew Garfield, the new Marvel-controlled Spider-Man will be portrayed by Tom Holland. Holland is apparently 19, though this seems like the thing in hentai where the loli character is said to be thousands of years old. Disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself, Marvel.
This new, cherubic Peter Parker will debut in Captain America: Civil War next May, where Steve Rogers will probably change his diaper or try to feed him applesauce with hilarious results.
Sony and Marvel have announced that Spider-man will finally be brought into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a cameo in an upcoming MCU film (though which one is still unknown.) Follow this, Spider-man will become a part of Marvel’s Phase 3 in his own picture, which will premier July 28th, 2017. It’s worth noting that date once belonged to Thor: Ragnarok, which has now been pushed back to November 3, 2017.
This new film will be produced by Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, though Sony will still release it.
Interestingly, the press release mentions “the new Spider-Man,” which could correlate with rumors that Andrew Garfield would be replaced as the web slinger.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige blew his load today and announced a ton of upcoming MCU projects. Some of the more interesting announcements are that Chadwick Boseman will be playing Black Panther, and that Avengers: Infinity Wars will be a two part movie spread across May 2018 and May 2019. Here’s a quick rundown of everything Feige announced:
Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016
Doctor Strange – November 4, 2016
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – May 5, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok – July 28, 2017
Black Panther – November 3, 2017
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1: May 4, 2018, Part 2: May 3, 2019
Captain Marvel – July 6, 2018
The Inhumans – November 2, 2018
Marvel has brought in Peyton Reed to direct Ant-Man, and hired Adam McKay to rewrite the script. Marvel originally approached McKay as a potential replacement for Edgar Wright.
Reed is known for directing such movies as Yes Man, The Break-Up, and Bring It On. He’s also directed episodes of Mr.Show, The Weird Al Show, and Upright Citizens Brigade, so I have no idea what to make of him.
