“What are you hiding, Peter?” Sony has unleashed two more trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, hitting theaters in the middle of the summer. Tom Holland stars as (the new) Peter Parker, who was first introduced in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. This story continues with Parker returning from the events in that movie, still trying to figure out his place as a teenager in NYC. The focus seems to be entirely on the city, and it’s cool to see him caring about stolen bikes and old ladies. The full cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Michael Keaton as The Vulture, as well as Donald Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Angourie Rice, Hannibal Buress, and Zendaya. I like the US version of these trailers more, better footage. Looking forward to this. Here’s the newest trailers (+ poster) for Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, from Sony’s YouTube: You can still watch the teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming …

These days, it’s not enough to have your successful comic book property or brand exist on one platform. Sony knows this well, and it’s why in addition to relaunching Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” they’ve got an animated movie coming next year, and a Venom based movie universe in the works. Marvel, of course, has their tentacles everywhere from the multiplex to Netflix to premium cable, and now another high profile project is on the way.

Just for a change, Marvel Studios are currently opening their gates to dump trucks of money that are being delivered to them. 15 movies in, and the company haven’t really had a true flop, and this past weekend’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” looks like it’ll be one of their biggest, taking nearly $150 million in three days domestically to add to the $275 million or so it’s racked up in ten days in the rest of the world.

When Marvel introduced the idea of Inhumans in “Agents of SHIELD,” comic book fans cried foul. The characters in ‘SHIELD’ were not the superhero royal family that Marvel-heads knew and lovesd Well, ABC and Marvel are hoping to fix that with “Marvel’s Inhumans,” which finally gives viewers an introduction to the Inhuman Royal Family. Here’s the first synopsis from Marvel The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965.

In 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn introduced the world to a team of miscreants and misfits forced to come together and save the galaxy. To put it bluntly, they’re a bunch of a-holes. With the sequel, titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the latest feature from Marvel Studios, the writer-director is tasked with delivering a story that not only continues the epic and irreverent adventures of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his gang of lovable weirdos, but furthers their evolution as characters as well. Set to the ’70s soft rock stylings of Awesome Mix Vol. 2, the sequel picks up a few months after the first film ended. After saving Xandar from Ronan the Accuser, the Guardians have become famous throughout the universe as world-class mercenaries, selling their services to the highest bidder. Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Great Gatsby), the high priestess of a genetically perfect alien race known as the Sovereign, …

As big fans of dimly-lit fights in corridors, episode upon episode of plot filler, joylessness and underusing Rosario Dawson, we’ve obviously been SUPER EXCITED for “The Defenders,” the fifth in the Netflix Marvel shows ostensibly set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (i.e. someone occasionally mentions The Avengers in passing). It’s the show that the previous ones have been building towards, uniting the heroes of “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” for the first time. Continue reading First Trailer For Netflix’s ‘The Defenders’ Unites Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage & Iron Fist [Watch] at The Playlist.

How many times have you read that it’s really hard to duplicate the success of the first film in a sequel? Probably more than you can remember. Well, here’s a newsflash: “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” pulls that feat off with only a little strain and a belly of genuine emotion. Marvel Studios’ space faring superhero-team-that-isn’t-really-a-superhero-team came together in 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” James Gunn, along with a screenplay assist from Nicole Sperling, wonderfully demonstrated how a band of characters that were barely known beyond hardcore comic book fans could transform into a band of charismatic and colorful characters that felt strikingly original.
