We haven’t heard too much about Spider-Man: Homecoming apart from endless speculation about Zendaya’s character and tons of videos of Tom Holland’s parkour skills, but we know that Tony Stark will definitely make an appearance. He took Peter Parker under his wing in Captain America: Civil War, so he’s probably going to keep showing up in Peter’s life to see how his new protege is doing. And what’s a friendship with Tony Stark without a few very high-tech gifts? [If you want to go into Homecoming knowing as little as possible, now’s the time to turn back because there be SPOILERS ahead.]

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Superman is the best. Just the absolute best. And if you disagree, I'm so sorry for your wrongness, but we're not here to argue about how wrong you could potentially be, we're here to talk about Superman's best team-ups.
On the big screen, being a superhero looks fun and thrilling — and maybe also sort of dangerous and painful, but mostly exciting. But behind the scenes, being a superhero involves some awkward stuff, like motion capture and clingy spandex costumes and weird accessories, all of which, with the help of countless hours of movie magic, somehow translates to looking incredibly badass. Thanks to this new video from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, you can catch a glimpse of some of the weirder work that goes into making Tom Holland’s Spidey look so darn cool.
If there's one truth about comic book toys, it's that there's never a shortage of Spider-Man figures in the wild to add to your collection. From mass market figures for adult and kid collectors to bigger, more elaborate pieces, it's hard to find a way to stand out from the crowd in this modern era of Spider-indulgence. Mezco's been working very hard at setting itself apart from the rest of the competition with its One:12 Collective, and its new Spider-Man figure has just the right mix of classic sensibilities with modern design to make it a promising new toy.
Cosplay is fun and exciting, but sometimes you want to wear something that shows your nerdy pride and doesn't take weeks to make --- and maybe has some pockets. Casual cosplay is the perfect way to embody your favorite character while still wearing something work appropriate.
This gift guide has a ton of recommendations for the casual cosplayer in your life, from cozy sweaters to screen-accurate jewelry.
When you’ve been fortunate enough to land the headlining role in a potentially lucrative film franchise, the least you can do is give a little back. Superhero actors making guest appearances in hospitals to spread a little cheer to bed-ridden children has become an increasingly common practice in recent years, with Chrises Evans and Pratt both leveraging their celebrity as Captain America and Star-Lord, respectively, to brighten sickly youngsters’ days. It’s a harmless PR stunt — the movie gets some positive, feel-good publicity while making some kid’s day/week/life, and everyone walks away smiling.
When you think of Lin-Manuel Miranda, what do you think of? Hamilton? Moana? A Twitter feed full of positive and encouraging thoughts? The Spider-Man villain Carnage? If it’s that last one, you and the master songsmith think alike, because Carnage is the one Marvel character Miranda apparently would love to play.
Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at one of Marvel's more memorable early animated efforts, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends!
In Hannah Blumenreich's Spider-Man fan comics, Peter Parker disentangles Gilmore Girls relationships while helping Aunt May knit, falls asleep on the couch to the tune of I Love Lucy, and gushes about Cowboy Bebop while shielding a woman from street harassment. Blumenreich's Spidey Zine and other Peter Parker fan comics explore a quieter, more introspective take on the iconic character, drawn with the physicality of a realistically young, potato-esque teenager.
ComicsAlliance attended the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo and sat down with Blumenreich to discuss fan work, arachnophobia, and evil Disney lawyers.
Listen, we still have eight months before Spider-Man: Homecoming is released in theaters, so it’s not exactly surprising that there hasn’t been so much as a teaser trailer for Tom Holland’s first solo Spidey adventure. If a new rumor is to be believed (and it seems likely), then that will change relatively soon, as the first trailer for Homecoming is reportedly attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
