Everyone needs to stop what they’re doing this instant and watch the Morbius trailer.
Morbius is the new Marvel film we can expect from the Sony Marvel Universe (which is not to be confused with the MCU… Which Spider-Man is in). It’s about a doctor that is dying and is trying to cure his rare blood disease… But instead infects himself with vampirism.
In the trailer there are many easter eggs leading back to Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man movies.
Do you see what we see? This puts us post Spider-Man: Far From Home after *SPOILER ALERT* Mysterio tells the world that Peter Parker is Spider-Man and makes him out to be a villain.
Also, like. Vulture is literally in the trailer. That is a direct tie in. So like if Sony could give us Tom Holland, Tom Hardy, and Jared Leto in a movie together? … And then bring them all in a MCU movie together, that’d be great.
As a Marvel stan myself, it’s my theory that Sony/Marvel are creating their rendition on the Sinister Six but only time will tell. Until then you can find us watching this trailer on repeat.
Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments down below or on Twitter!
After months of negotiations, Disney and Sony have finally reached a new deal!
We have whiplash from all the back and forth with Spider-Man and his place in the MCU. But you know what, that’s okay. Because in the end… We won, Mr. Stark.
Kevin Feige, President of Marvel, released an official statement stating;
I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.
So basically he’s saying Spidey is back, safe in our arms where he belongs. And that we get to see him with another British Tom H that plays a superhero (Tom Hardy as Venom) and that we may possibly see Venom in the MCU. YES PLEASE!
And of course, as Stan Twitter does best, they supplied us with the best memes and tweets in reaction to this news. And what monsters would we be if we didn’t share some with you?
Then, the web slinger himself took to Instagram to weigh in.
Oh! We forgot to mention the best part… The third Spider-Man movie is slated to be released on July16th 2021.
Disney gives fans an idea of what to expect through 2020 and Beyond.
Today in Anaheim, California at the D23 Expo, Disney gave fans a peek of all of their upcoming movies. While they didn’t show anything from their Fox slate of films, there was still plenty to see.
Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker
Disney started by bringing up Kathleen Kennedy and JJ Abrams. They talked about the film “Being a wrap up to a saga that began over 40 years ago.” From there they brought the rest of the cast, including, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, the droids of course, and newcomer to the Star Wars franchise Keri Russell.
Keri Russell described her character as “Shady. Kind of a criminal. And sort of this old friend of Poe’s.”
Anthony Daniels tells the fans that he can’t believe the Skywalker Saga is Ending, “But what an ending. I can’t wait for you to all see what we’ve been working on. You’ll love it.”
Next, the crowd saw the poster for the upcoming film. It highlights Rey and Kylo battling on what appears to be a part of a ship, behind them the face of Emperor Palpatine.
According to Twitter the footage was something special.
According to many sources, we should expect to see the footage shown at D23 this coming Monday. We will have to sit back and wait, because I cannot wait!
Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker will release December 20th, 2019.
Black Panther II
Ryan Coogler came on stage with Kevin Feige, who has had a bit of a rough week, to officially announce Black Panther II. Two things have been confirmed from the announcements. The first treatment of the script has been completed. The official title has not yet been finalized. It is probably safe to assume that Chadwick Boseman will return to star. The film is set to release May 6, 2022.
Next up Marvel brought out the cast of The Eternals, the next movie on the cosmic side of the MCU.
They officially announced Gemma Chan to be playing Sersi, another member of the Eternals. Sersi has been a member of the Avengers in the comics. This isn’t Gemma’s first time in the MCU. She previously played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel.
They also announced that Kit Harrington famous for his role as JonSnow(or was it Aegon Targaryen?) will be playing Dane Whitman who is also known as the Black Knight. Barry Keoghan who was previously seen in Dunkirk, and is about to star in Y: The Last Man on FX as Yorick Brown was also announced to be playing Druig.
The Eternals will also Star Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Lauren Ridloff and Dong-seok Ma.The Eternals is set to release November 6, 2020.
Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, and Florence Pugh were unable to attend the expo as they are busy filming the movie, however, they did send a video from the set. They showed the San Diego Comic-Con footage again but showed a couple of new bits as well. The most notable is a short scene between Florence Pugh‘s Yelena and Johansson‘s Natasha.
Dwayne Johnson made his entrance on a full-sized Jungle Cruise boat in order to show some footage of the new movie. Of course, there is a reference to the backside of water. Nothing has been officially released yet, but Dwayne Johnson explained the movie by saying “Big action, big comedy, big romance, but most of all… it has me!” and that it is inspired by films like Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone.
Emily Blunt also came out, this time in an old-timey car, and showed another cut of the trailer with her character as the main hero. While neither is the final trailer, fan reactions seem to be positive.
Jungle Cruise releases on July 24, 2020.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
Angelina Jolie came on stage again with Elle Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Chiwetel Ejiofor to show some footage from the upcoming movie. A small clip of a conversation between Pfeiffers and Jolie’s character was shown. The movie releases soon, so its possible Disney didn’t want to share too much.
The film will release on October 18, 2019.
Director Niki Caro came on stage to show some new footage from the film. A couple of snippets from different scenes were shown.
We’ll see how the non-musical remake turns out when it releases on March 27, 2020.
We got our first look at Emma Stone as Cruella De Vil from the upcoming film. A video from set was sent in and not too much information was shared. The film was described as ‘Punk Rock’ and seems to be set in the 1970’s London. The Film will also star Emma Thompson, Pual Walter Hauser, and Joel Fry. It will release on May 28, 2021.
A new film was announced coming from Pixar named Soul. Pete Docter introduced the film by asking “Why am I here? where did I come from? And what am I here for?”
The footage shown shows the main character Joe played by Jamie Foxx getting his chance at his dream gig, playing at the Club of Dreams. From there, he falls into an open manhole and possibly dies? His Soul then goes through a ‘Soul Seminar’ where souls are trained. The film is about Joe getting back to earth to play his jazz set.
Jon Batiste is writing original jazz songs, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are producing the score.
The film also stars Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs, and Tina Fey.
Soul will release on June 19, 2020 (Juneteenth!)
Pixar’s other movie in 2020 Onward was shown next. Stars Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus showed 8 minutes of new footage from the movie.
The plot is definitely a bit different than what we’ve seen from Pixar in the past. Reportedly, its about the two elf brothers Ian and Barley resurrecting their deceased father for a day with a magic spell. However, only the bottom half is resurrected. They then go on an adventure to find a gem to bring him back fully.
You can watch the previously released teaser trailer below.
Tom Holland also addressed the Spider-Man controversy to the crowd after the footage.
“Listen guys, it’s been a crazy week, but I want to let you know I’m grateful from the bottom of my heart. I love you 3000!” Dont worry, we’re already over here crying.
Onward will release on March 6, 2020.
Raya and the Last Dragon
Walt Disney Animation Studios came out to close the show and debuted a new film.
Raya is a mix between classic Disney animation and Hong Kong action films according to writer Adele Lim. It takes from Southeast Asian culture and folk tales. The film is set in a realm called Lumandra, described as “a reimagined earth inhabited by an ancient civilization.” Five clans form the land of the dragon, and Raya is determined to find the last dragon.
Cassie Steele will voice the lead character Raya, and Akwafina voices Sisu, the Dragon in the movie. An official logo and concept art have been released and can be seen below. The film will release in November, 2020.
To finish out the show, clips of Frozen II was shown. Sterling K. Brown as Lieutenant Matthias and Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Iduna were announced to join the cast.
The film was described as a completion of the story from the first. Director Chris Buck said…
Why does Elsa have powers. Why does Anna NOT have powers? Where were their parents going when their ship went down? And is there such a thing as Happily Ever After?
Chris Buck at D23
Footage of Queen Iduna singing a lullaby to young Anna and Elsa was shown in a flashback.
Footage of one of Elsa’s new song which seems to be called “Into the Unknown” was shown as well. A moment was shown of Kristoff unsuccessfully attempting to propose to Anna because of her being distracted worrying about Elsa.
After the footage was shown, Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff (With a Sven Plush) came out to sing a new song from the film together live on stage.
We don’t have to wait too long to see the next installment in the Frozen story, the film releases November 22, 2019.
Avengers… ASSEMBLE ! It seems we have a new villain in town, and they go by the name of Sony.
Have you ever been stabbed in the back before by someone you thought was your friend?… Someone you even considered family? Because that’s exactly what Sony just did to all of us!
Today it was announced that the Sony/Disney alliance has ended. It’s time for fans to pick sides because we got another Civil Waron our hands.
In case you’re confused here’s a quick recap. Sony owns Spider-Man and all of the associated characters. Disney owns… literally everyone else. So the two came to an agreement to let our man Peter into the MCU. After Spider-Man: Far From Homesurpassed the $1Billion mark (Homecoming grossed $880Million), Sony got cocky.
They didn’t get their way in the new deal, so they are now holding this over Disney’s head (allegedly) thinking that they’re going to comply … Can someone remind them what Disney did to FOX…
Whether this story is true or not … it broke the internet and it more importantly broke our hearts. We trusted Sony with our lives… and they did this to us. The audacity.
In this hard and trying time, some fans took to Twitter to mourn our loss.
Even our dear ol’ fellow AvengerHawkeye has chimed in
Doesn’t Sony know that with great power comes responsibility? They hold a lot of power with Spidey and this whole situation doesn’t seem responsible at all. Uncle Ben would be so disappointed.
Sony, Disney, or Tom Holland himself have yet to speak out on this devastating news but we’re all anxiously waiting. With the upcoming Phase 4 of Marvel movies and Disney+ shows, who knows what’s now going to happen.
Be sure to keep checking in because we’ll be web-slinging the news your way.
Tom Holland,Sebastian Stan,Bill Skarsgård, and Robert Pattison are officially announced to star in the heavily anticipated 2020 release of The Devil All the Time. Fans are dying to know what director Antônio Campos has up his sleeve! The cast is pretty impressive, with stars like the above alongside Haley Bennett, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasakowska, and Riley Keough.
The made for Netflix movie will be an adaptation of the novel, written by Donald Ray Pollock. With cinematography by Lol Crawley, we can only be certain that this film will be a masterpiece. Crawley has worked within television and film for years – his earliest project dating back to 2008. Several awards have been won for his work, including an award at the Sundance Film Festival for Excellence in Cinematography. His notable work references Black Mirror’s episode, “Crocodile” (2017), and Coldplay’s 2011 music video, “Charlie Brown.”
The movie, much like the book, will follow a cast of bizarre characters nearing the end of the Second World War, up to the 1960s, throughout southern Ohio and West Virginia. The characters include a disturbed war veteran, a husband and wife pair who turn out to be serial killers, and a false preacher. Tom Holland, who graces us with his adaptation of Marvel’sSpider-Man, takes on the role of Arvin Russell. As the central protagonist; he faces multiple collisions with corruption and destructive impulses – it’s likely Holland will have the most screen time.
Holland plays possibly the most complex character in the film; a good guy at heart, but also not afraid to use physical violence to take revenge on those who wronged him, or someone he cares about. Carrying a lot of emotional trauma and baggage, he will prove himself to be good willed, but a violent man.
In early September 2018 when the film was announced, Tom Holland, Robert Pattison, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowskam, and Tracy Letts were all in talks to star. Unfortunately for die hard Chris Evans fans, the star dropped out of the film after scheduling conflicts. But, don’t worry, Marvel fans, Evans recommended that Stan take his place in the film. Stan will take on Evans’s role as Lee Bodecker, a corrupt lawman and Sandy Henderson’s (Mia Wasikowska) brother.
The Devil All the Time is due to release via Netflix’s streaming services, while filming began in Birmingham, Alabama. Filming officially started on February 19, 2019 and later concluded on April 15. Randall Poster, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker will produce the film. There is currently no official release date for the film.
