It wouldn’t be an inaccurate statement to say the world’s most popular superhero was in limbo after Sony’s “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise reboot crashed and burned in 2014. While critics and fans have been reassured of Marvel Studios’ handling of Spider-Man due to Tom Holland’s (“The Impossible”) scene-stealing, plucky presence in “Captain America: Civil War” there has been enormous pressure on Marvel and Sony to get Spider-Man right this time.

WEST HOLLYWOOD – Sitting down with James Gunn it’s clear the writer and director of “Guardians of the Galaxy, vol. 2” is battling to keep his energy up as he endures a day full of interviews and press conferences for his latest blockbuster.  He is also no doubt coming off the high of the film’s world premiere that took place less than 24 hours earlier.  A premiere where a good chunk of Hollywood learned that “Vol. Continue reading ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’s’ James Gunn Thinks Tom Holland Is ‘Amazing’ As Spider-Man [Interview] at The Playlist.

I don’t envy any movie executive or creators who are tasked with both pleasing fans who want absolutely fidelity to the source material and devotees who are happy to see new takes on their favorite characters. Fanboys are willing to endure some creative liberties, but not so much that it ruins whatever vision of the superhero or their world they have in their head. It’s a science with ever-changing rules, which brings us to “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” a film that apparently has some fans very confused/concerned.

We’re less than a month away from the summer movie season, although you would likely think otherwise if you’ve been to a theater near you lately. With hot titles like “Logan,” “Ghost in the Shell,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Power Rangers,” “Life,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and, err, “CHIPS” all playing in cinemas near you, it can be hard to differentiate between the sizzling summer selections and the ones that now play at seemingly any point in time of the year, no matter the season.

Sony‘s Spider-Man gameplan keeps getting odder by the day. First, there’s the decision to launch a superhero universe with classic villain “Venom,” except it won’t be tied to the forthcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Indeed, the summer blockbuster is the rare union of three studios — Sony, Disney, and Marvel — who’ve decided to share a very valuable property between them.

A new trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming“ arrived this morning, and with appearances by Iron Man and Captain America, it underlines in bold marker that it will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, don’t expect anything that plays out in that film to even touch upon “Venom.” As we know, Sony is gearing up their own comic book universe, starting with a movie focused on the classic Spidey villain, which might even be R-rated.

Sony is so confident they’ll have a hit with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (thanks to a helping hand from Marvel), they’re wasting no time in setting up spinoff films. Venom and Silver Sable and Black Cat will have their own movies, and while the studio was burned before in putting the cart before the horse with “The Amazing Spider-Man,” they’ll likely do everything to avoid a second faceplant.

LAS VEGAS – The big showstopper from Sony Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation was supposed to be a sneak peek of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” And, yes, the new Peter Parker himself, Tom Holland, director Jon Waitts along with producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal were on hand to introduce footage, but it turned out to be the same trailer you will likely already have seen by the time you read this story.

This summer marks a new chapter for Marvel, their first collaboration with another studio, as they pair up with Sony for “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” And the film is affording director Jon Watts an opportunity to bring a different perspective to the superhero universe. “My whole approach for this movie is that we’ve seen the penthouse level of the (Marvel) universe,” he told USA Today.

On Monday Hollywood studios, the world’s theater owners and the companies that supply your favorite concessions will once again meet in Las Vegas for yet another edition of CinemaCon. And it’s more than just a chance for vendors to pitch their latest iteration of a Sour Patch Kids candy. It’s big business. In fact, it’s the life blood of the movie business. Run by NATO (no, not that NATO), the National Association of Theater Owners, the yearly convention is a chance for each distributor to push their upcoming releases in hopes of convincing major cineplex chains and even small independent mom and pop theaters (yes, they still exist) to chose their movie over their competitors and to promote these titles in their establishments through trailers, standees (preferably with the best possible placement) and more.
