Asa Butterfield Reportedly Cast as Sony and Marvel’s New Spider-Man

Spider-Man best superhero
Sony

According to Latino Review, after a long search, Butterfield has secured the role of Peter Parker for Sony’s newer, hipper, younger, version of Spider-Man. Word on the Interwebs (heh) claims this new Spider-Man will make his onscreen debut in next March’s Captain America: Civil War before spinning off into his own solo movie franchise that will be released by Sony but made in conjunction with Marvel and would be considered part of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. That film (or, let’s be honest, franchise) would be separate from the animated Spider-Man movie that is also currently in development at Sony, under the direction of Lego Movie filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Report Card: How the Comics’ Heroes Have Fared on the Screen

aou-feat

The Avengers are very famous indeed. After the success of their second movie as a team — and the tenth movie to feature any of the members — the Marvel heroes have a presence and profile in our culture like never before. It's a strange new reality to adjust to for those of us who remembers when co-workers, cousins and schoolmates had no knowledge of Iron Man or Black Widow, and perhaps only the vaguest idea about Captain America, and they thought of the Hulk as a sad man named David with flared trousers and a haunting piano theme.

Now millions know these characters and could probably pick them out of a line-up. But the non-comics audience knows slightly different versions of the characters than the ones we might be used to. Sometimes the changes made from page to screen are for the better, sometimes for the worse, and sometimes they're... just different. In the best cases, the movies offer brilliant new takes on the characters that inform and refresh their comic book counterparts. So with that in mind, where does Avengers: Age of Ultron leave the best-known versions of these heroes?

This article contains extensive spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's been out for almost two weeks; you should have seen it by now.

Fox is Making a ‘New Mutants’ Movie: Which Characters Do You Want to See? [Poll]

newmutants

Fox has announced a potential new direction for its enduring X-Men movie franchise, and it's one that should please a lot of comics fans. The studio has signed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to co-write and direct New Mutants, starring a junior team of mutant heroes. Boone will co-write the film with Knate Gwaltney, and X-Men movie stalwarts Simon Kinberg and Laura Shuler-Donner will produce.

The movie will surely draw heavily on the comics, but its cast won't necessarily be limited to characters that served in the original New Mutants line-up, or even in later versions of the team. There are decades of Westchester student mutants to choose from. In order to make the filmmakers' choices a little easier, we want you to pick the characters you'd most like to see on screen.

Captain America: The Winter Solider is the Best 8-Bit Marvel Movie

captain america cinefix

Those devils at CineFix are at it again, this time taking their retro-inspired gaming talents to the greatest Marvel movie ever made in the history of the universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

We're big fans of CineFix's 8-bit remakes of classic films, and though Winter Soldier isn't quite as classic as Scarface or Titanic (yet), it's definitely one of the most memorable Marvel movies since the heroes started making the leap from the panel to the screen. Seeing many of the big moments from the feature film revisited here in a style reminiscent of Mega Man only served to remind us just how amazing Winter Soldier was, and still is today.
