Spidey’s Got Some Growing Up to Do In New “Spider-Man: Far From Home” Trailer

Spidey is back, and he is headed on a vacation – one that happens to be interrupted by Nick Fury and… Mysterio?

The latest trailer for the Spider-Man sequel just arrived after most places have dropped the embargo on Avengers spoilers, and it’s perfect timing! A lot goes on in this video, including a look at a new Spidey suit and more!

WARNING: If you haven’t watched “Avengers: Endgame” yet, do NOT watch the trailer below. If you have, or don’t care about spoilers, then give it a view:

SPOILER PART: With the death of Tony Stark in “Endgame”, Peter is still dealing with some serious depression, self-doubt, and trying to fill a large Iron void. Ole’ Web-Head is going to do some maturing in this film, and by the looks of it pretty fast. Plus, a lot of characters seem to know the secret identity of Parker, which makes me wonder if this is all just a Mysterio induced fantasy…

That “more” I mentioned above is the mention of multiverses, which seems to be the start for what could be part of this new phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The idea of a multiverse was teased in “Endgame” when Hulk met with The Ancient One, and discussed the ramification of what happens when something is changed in the past – the splintering of timelines into new realities.

With things uncertain, including what will happen with the X-Men and Fantastic Four, bringing the multiverse officially into the MCU truly expands the possibilities of what could happen over the course of the next decade.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Star, with Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The film swings into theaters on July 2, 2019.

Chris Evans’ Favorite “Captain America” Fight Scene Is From “Winter Soldier”

It will be hard to replace Chris Evans when he inevitably leaves the role of “Captain America” behind for the next step of his career. He has had many memorable moments over the years, and provided plenty of entertainment with his stoic demeanor, sense of humor, and ability to give some great action. Today, we learned which of those action scenes from his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is his favorite of all time!

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Evans explained that his favorite fight scene he has done as Cap is unequivocally the elevator scene from “The Winter Soldier”. It’s a sequence that has become iconic for the franchise in a movie that arguably has some of the best hand-to-hand fight scenes in any of the MCU films thus far. What is more surprising than his choice of scene is the reason why he chose it:

I’m partial to that fight scene in the elevator. That was the first scene we shot in the second Captain America movie. It was my first time working with the Russos, it was the first time where it felt like Cap was kind of on his own.

In the first Cap movie you know, you really felt like everyone was holding my hand, and the first Avengers movie I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one that I really kind of felt, I suppose, pressure, and that first elevator fight scene came out really great in my opinion.

Evans has been very proud of his stunt work on the MCU films, and is very active on social media sharing behind the scenes footage of him while practicing choreography. “Avengers: Endgame” should be very intense, and considering it will likely be the last hurrah for Evans’ Cap, we can expect some real bangers in that epic movie.

“Avengers: Endgame” hits US theaters on April 26.

Brie Larson Wants “Captain Marvel” To Stand On Its Own Merits

We are days away from the release of “Captain Marvel”, and there has been plenty of hype happening in the past few weeks. We even had a live stream with Goose the cat! Last night, the Captain herself, Brie Larson, hit up a late night talk show where she discussed her feelings about how she wanted viewers to approach the movie.

Larson appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Captain Marvel, and was asked about her thoughts on the importance of being the first female-led Marvel movie. Her response downplayed the feminist angle, and focused more on how she wanted the movie to be viewed like any other MCU flick.

Check out the video below, with the transcript following that:

“I don’t know how it’s any different. To be honest, I don’t want it to feel different,” Larson explained. “I’m kind of over the ‘First female blah blah blah,’ and ‘Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do – what a crazy concept!’

“I feel like the more we talk about it, the more we perpetuate the myth that it’s an impossible task. No, if it wasn’t like that before, it’s because it was wrong. That was just wrong. Now we’re just doing what’s natural.

“It’ll be what it is, and I think there’s gonna be lot there for people to digest and feel,” Larson continued. “And hopefully it’ll be the movie that you want to revisit again and again, and as life goes on, it’ll have more to it. I just want to make art that lasts. I want to make art that you grow with. That’s all.”

This sounds a bit like a shift in how she has approached promoting the movie. Back in February, Larson told Marie Claire UK that she has taken steps to make sure the movie’s press junket is not “overwhelmingly white male.” This may be part of what led to the Rotten Tomatoes backlash, although most likely that same reaction would have happened even if she said nothing .

We look forward to the first female-led Marvel movie and hope it paves the way for more, like the Black Widow movie or maybe Ms Marvel eventually. Let’s reserve judgment for when the movie is actually in theaters later this week, and let’s all do our best to look at it with no predetermined biases. More comic book movies are a win for everyone, and if you think “forced diversity” is ruining entertainment, I suggest investing in a time machine to live out your days in the 50’s.

“Captain Marvel” hits US theaters on March 8.

Mezco Heads For The Stars With New One:12 Captain Marvel figure

We are not too far away from NY Toy Fair 2019, but Mezco has been going to town with their pre-event reveals. We already saw their new Living Dead Doll based on Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance from “The Shining”, and now we have this very exciting One:12 figure joining the fray!

Today via their mailing list, Mezco Toyz previewed their newest six-inch figure – Captain Marvel! Based on Brie Larson’s version of her in the upcoming movie of the same name, we don’t have any other details to go on yet other than this photo:

“When former U.S Air Force fighter pilot turned superhero Captain Marvel joins Starforce, she must return to Earth which is now in the crossfires of two alien races.”

Now we just have to wait another two weeks for NY Toy Fair to happen so we can see all of the new One:12 figures coming from Mezco in the near future. I am also curious if they will have a Brie Larson head to go with this.

Of course, my big dream is a new Nick Fury figure with Samuel L. Jackson’s face and two swappable heads – one with eyepatch and one without.

Stay tuned for our Toy Fair coverage to see all of the reveals!

NECA also revealed a new TMNT figure today, an 18-inch version of The Shredder from the 1990 movie!
