All 8 ‘Spider-Man’ movies ranked by our readers: There’s no place like ‘Home,’ but Andrew Garfield is not so ‘Amazing’ [Poll Results]

All 8 ‘Spider-Man’ movies ranked by our readers: There’s no place like ‘Home,’ but Andrew Garfield is not so ‘Amazing’ [Poll Results]
Spider-Man: Far From Home” is the best “Spider-Man” movie yet — that’s according to readers who responded to our recent poll about the eight films starring the Marvel Comics web-slinger. I suspect some recency bias contributes to that result since “Far From Home” just opened and therefore was fresh in mind for fans. In a couple of years’ time the result might very well be different, but “Far From Home” was well received by critics and audiences, so even if it were to sink in a later poll, it might not sink too far. Scroll down to see our complete poll results at the bottom of this post.

Our readers were divided, so “Far From Home” came out on top with less than a third (31 percent) of all votes. Two other films followed close behind. Director Sam Raimi‘s “Spider-Man 2” from back in 2004 came in second with 27 percent of

Marvel Fans Are Blown Away By Mahershala Ali Playing The McU’s Blade

After years of fans calling for the Daywalker to make it into the McU, Marvel finally granted our wishes yesterday. Right at the end of their monumentally-exciting panel about their Phase 4 plans, a new Blade movie was announced to be in development – with Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali cast as the vampire hunter.

Naturally, folks are going wild with excitement over the idea of Ali appearing in just a few years as the cult hero. Wesley Snipes, of course, played Blade in a trilogy back in the late-90s/early-00s and will be hard to replace, but everyone agrees that the Green Book star is the perfect choice to fill the role in the McU.

Mahershala Ali As Marvel'S Blade?!?!?!?! Are We Kidding?!?!?!

It's The Perfect Casting!!! I am so excited!!! I love him! #BladeMCU #MarvelStudios #Phase4 #MahershalaAli pic.twitter.com/zor8AZ0h4f

Mahershala Ali to Star in Marvel’s ‘Blade’ Reboot

  • Variety
Marvel is rebooting the “Blade” series, and has cast Mahershala Ali to star.

Conan Enters The Spider-Verse in New Spider-Man Themed Comic-Con Intro

Conan Enters The Spider-Verse in New Spider-Man Themed Comic-Con Intro
Conan O'Brien has once again invaded San Diego Comic-Con and, in honor of this year's event, the late-night talk show host decided to give his show's intro a little themed update. Taking some inspiration from last year's hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the Conan team created a new cold open for his Sdcc show that turns O'Brien into the man he was meant to be. One with no talent and no responsibility.

The Comic-Con cold open is done in the style of the wraparounds that were used in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to introduce each different version of the character. In this case, it hilariously chronicles, and exaggerates for dramatic effect, elements of Conan O'Brien's career. Instead of getting bit by a radioactive spider, he was bitten by a radioactive party clown. Conan O'Brien utilizes his notorious hair to swing around the city, as opposed to technologically advanced artificial web shooters.

New Spider-Verse Comic Continues Miles Morales' Story

Jim Dandy Jul 19, 2019

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is getting a comic book follow-up!

If you had told me 20 years ago that Spider-Man's defining characteristic would eventually be that he's friends with all the different versions of himself from throughout the multiverse, I would have run screaming from the time traveler with weird diseases. But also it wouldn't have made much sense - Peter Parker was Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's attempt at making a more human hero with real person problems that everyday folks could relate to. Now, however, he's the guy who bounces around the multiverse taking out enormous, reality-destroying threats, and I'll be 100-percent upfront with you: I'm here for it.

At Sdcc 2019, Marvel announced that Spider-Man will once again swing around the multiverse in Spider-Verse, a six-issue limited series from Jed Mackay (Black Cat) and a rotating team of artists, including Juan Frigeri (Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man

Marvel 2099 Returns in November

Gavin Jasper Jul 19, 2019

Spinning out of his Amazing Spider-Man run, Nick Spencer will be playing around the 2099 sandbox later this year.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced that Nick Spencer will be returning to the 2099 timeline, although the form the story will take has yet to be not revealed. Miniseries? Event? A 2099 imprint relaunch? What we do know is that this new 2099 thing builds out of a moment from one of Spencer’s many cliffhangers in a recent Spider-Man comic.

Amazing Spider-Man #25 was filled with various developments that will branch off to different stories. While there’s a Mysterio arc, a Dr. Strange team-up, and a Sinister Syndicate storyline on the way, the biggest eye-opener was a short scene of a college lecture about how all these major advancements in Marvel’s modern universe will one day cause massive destruction in the future.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Writers Aren’t Crazy About Bringing More Multiverse Stories to the McU

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Writers Aren’t Crazy About Bringing More Multiverse Stories to the McU
Now that the dust has settled on a gigantic chapter in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the biggest questions still remains: How will the entertainment world’s biggest storytelling engine move forward? For two of the instrumental figures in bringing the Avengers saga to its most recent wrap-up point, the answer seems to be: Not with a multiverse.

Speaking at a Friday Comic-Con panel, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely made a strong argument for keeping the inclusions of alternate realities to minimum going forward. Although it was generally regarded as a successful element of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” the pair talked about how digging too far into parallel universes may dampen the emotional impact of the various character departures at the end of “Avengers: Endgame.”

“It clearly exists, because Doctor Strange has talked all about it and it’s part of the fabric of that. This may

Spider-man: Far From Home Writers Share Some Scrapped Ideas From the Film

Spider-Man: Far From Home was such a great and fun film! The story was fun, and the ending (post-credits) was so freaking crazy! It really makes me excited for how things are going to go in the next Spider-Man movie. Of course, the creators of the film didn’t just land on this one concept and storyline and run with it, though. Moviemaking is a constantly changing process that takes lots of ideas, and lots of editing.

Screenwriters for the film Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers recently sat down with THR and talked about some of the preliminary ideas for Far From Home that ultimately didn’t make the cut. One idea was to have a cameo from Donald Glover in a scene, where he would have reprised his role from Spider-Man: Homecoming of the character Aaron Davis, a criminal from the comic book as well as Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,
