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.
There are lot of things that make Spider-Man one of the most interesting and captivating characters in the Marvel Universe, but one of the franchise's greatest strengths has always been his supporting characters, and even more specifically, his love interests. For a character known for his "Parker Luck", he's attracted the attention of several impressive, accomplished, and beautiful women. We've put together a guide to some of the most important romances in Spider-Man's life.
While filming on Spider-Man: Homecoming has wrapped, not a whole lot is known about the characters or storyline. Some casting news has come out recently, like Michael Keaton playing Vulture, but so far most of the details about the plot are being kept under wraps. Fans are interested to see which familiar characters form the comics will be making an appearance in the movie, and today we got some more confirmation that one of these is going to be Peter Parker’s bestie Ned Leeds.
The addition of the Spider-Signal at the end of Captain America: Civil War was an unexpected treat for fans of the web-slinger, and the first time Marvel has had it in a live-action movie. And it made total sense — if Tony Stark was going to take Peter Parker under his wing, he would never be able to resist making the kid a few little gifts. Today, the company behind the Spider-Signal animation released their concept art for the design, and it’s fascinating to see the preliminary sketches evolve into the finished product.
Dan Slott and Jim Cheung’s The Clone Conspiracy is the year’s big Spider-Man event, as long-time foe The Jackal is going around resurrecting pretty much anyone that ever met Peter Parker before their death. This week saw even more characters return from the dead, and considering some of them are quite obscure we’ve put together a handy chart to keep track of who’s who in The Clone Conspiracy.
Over the summer, we learned that Zendaya’s mysterious role in Spider-Man: Homecoming may very well be Mary Jane Watson — news that unfortunately spurred a bit of sadly predictable controversy among some fans, who felt that casting a young woman of color was a betrayal to the traditional depiction of Peter Parker’s white love interest. In a new interview, Zendaya herself addresses the negative reaction to her casting, and though she skillfully dodges the big MJ question, the actress does have one interesting detail to offer about her character.
Ahead of Brazil's Comic Con Experience event in Sao Paulo, Iron Studios and the convention have revealed one of the official posters for the event. The poster, by Rafael Albuquerque, features Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen going up against two of the biggest Spider-foes, Venom and Carnage, on the Brooklyn Bridge. Ordinarily this would be a cool print in and of itself, but it's also providing the inspiration for Iron Studios' next statue series.
X-Men isn’t the only superhero franchise with some major updates today — there’s also some interesting new info from Sony and Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Homecoming star Tom Holland has revealed the details of his contract with both studios, while Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has offered official confirmation of Michael Keaton’s villainous role in the new Spidey film.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes the Fantastic Four, Dr Jones, Chrono Trigger, Mysterio and more.
