Why Marvel Fans Are Arguing About Spider-Man: Homecoming







The following contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming


Nearly everybody who has seen Spider-Man: Homecoming would seem to agree that the new movie is pretty good. It adds a great deal to the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, one thing it seems to have added has many fans more than a little upset. It appears to have added a major conflict in the existing MCU timeline. Dates no longer seem to add up based on the new information in Homecoming. Let's break it down.


The major issue comes right at the beginning of the new film. Our opening scene depicts Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes as he leads a work crew in the dismantling of the debris left behind following the invasion of New York in the original Avengers film. Work has been going on for some time, as Keaton already has an idea as to how to deal with some of the alien artifacts. However, it's still early enough that Toomes is left in a very bad way when he's told he's being kicked off the job to make way for Stark Industries. We're then told that when we zip forward to the main story that it's taking place eight years later. That's where this all starts to fall apart.


Our previous understanding was that The Avengers takes place in 2012, which if true, would place the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2020. There's nothing inherently wrong with this, except that we also know that Homecoming takes place more or less immediately following the events of Captain America: Civil War. This would mean that Civil War must also take place in 2020. Only that doesn't work either. In Civil War, Vision makes reference to it being eight years since Tony Stark revealed himself to the world as Iron Man, which means as of Civil War, we're only eight years into the entire MCU. Even if we start shifting things around in the timeline to fit as best we can, this would still mean that both Iron Man and the Avengers took place in about the same year, and that doesn't really add up.


Also, just by the way, Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn't take place in 2020. It takes place in 2017. There are a couple of pieces of information that would seem to confirm this. At one point, Spider-Man's on board AI "Karen" informs him that Aaron Davis, the character played by Donald Glover, is 33 years old, with a birth date of April 1984, which means it's 2017. We also see the date of the high school academic decathlon as taking place in 2017, as well.


So now, we take that information and work backward and we have to say that The Avengers happened not in 2012 but in 2009 or so. This works with the Civil War/Iron Man connection, as Iron Man is supposed to take place in about 2010, but that still puts The Avengers right on top of it.


And that doesn't actually work either, because the Battle of New York has a fixed date in the history of the MCU, May 4, 2012 (the actual release date of The Avengers in the USA). The New York Bulletin newspaper seen in Daredevil which reports on the event is dated the day after, May 5. So that movie happened in 2012, we can't get around that. Spider-Man: Homecoming is apparently simultaneously taking place in 2017 and 2020. Welcome to Shroedinger's movie. It's not a cat, it's a spider.


Any way you slice it, Marvel, which up to this point has been very strong in their continuity game, appears to be breaking down. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Eventually, it becomes incredibly complicated to keep all this straight, which is why the comic books all these movies are based on have had to reboot themselves now and again, sooner or later, things don't fit and a giant mess gets made.


The whole thing seems odd as obviously nobody threw together an "8 years later" title card on the fly. Somebody figured this was the right time period when even this cursory glance shows a major conflict. In the end, the exact timeline is hardly important to the vast majority of movie audiences, but for continuity-obsessed fans, this is a problem, and there's likely no easy way to fix it.

Marisa Tomei Is Upset Spider-Man: Homecoming Cut One Scene



Marisa Tomei is the latest actress to bring Spider-Man's Aunt May to life onscreen. And while many have praised her unique adaptation of the character in the recently-released Spider-Man: Homecoming, the actress recently expressed disappointment that a certain scene of hers didn't make it into the film.
While speaking to The Huffington Post, Tomei revealed that a scene initially in Homecoming's script gave May her own hero moment, as well as an added layer of depth between her and her nephew, Peter (Tom Holland).
"There was something going on in the neighborhood, and there was a little girl in distress, and I saved her." Tomei revealed. "And Peter saw me save her, so you kind of saw that he got part of his ethics from her."


Tomei then teased that the event led to an awkward encounter between May and Peter in their apartment.
"Then I come home, and I don’t even tell him that that’s what happened, and, of course, there’s all this stuff that he’s not telling me." Tomei explained. "So he’s like, 'How was your day?' And I’m like, 'It was fine,' but really I was shaking inside because of this whole crisis that had happened in the city. I’m kind of fibbing to him, and he’s fibbing to me, and we’re living in this house together, and it was a very interesting setup. I was quite disappointed that wasn’t in there."

Spider-Man: Homecoming Made Peter Scared Of Heights For A Reason





Spider-Man: Homecoming, which swung into theaters this past weekend, has been praised by many for its fresh, genuine take on the wall-crawler. That included, as it turns out, giving the character some very authentic fears.
Spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming follow.
In the film, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is tasked with saving his Academic Decathlon teammates, who are trapped in the Washington Monument. As he attempts to do so, he grows anxious about the height he could drop from.


And as screenwriter Jonathan Goldstein explained to The Hollywood Reporter, the goal of that scene was to make Homecoming's portrayal of Spidey - one who doesn't have a full grasp on his abilities yet - feel even more authentic.
"We wanted the movie to focus on him coming to terms with his new abilities and not yet being good with them," Goldstein revealed, "and carrying with him some real human fears and weaknesses, like a fear of heights, because nobody ever dealt with that before. You just sort of assumed, 'He gets bitten by a spider, he's totally comfortable on top of tall buildings.' But why did that have to be the case?"
Fellow screenwriter John Francis Daley echoed that sentiment, adding that the choice made in the Washington Monument scene gives Peter plenty of room to grow.
"Also, when you start small, it gives you such a place to go." Daley explained. "Even within the context of this movie, I don't think you would feel that fear of heights or even the vertigo the audience feels in that scene if you establish him as swinging from skyscrapers at the top of the movie."

How Spider-Man: Homecoming Addresses Peter Parker's Origin Story



Spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming follow. The Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures film is now playing in theaters worldwide.
While Spider-Man: Homecoming serves as an origin story of sorts for Peter Parker, as Tom Holland takes over the role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe reboot of the character, it does so in a fashion which sees him evolve from a high school student into a super hero. There is no moment which sees Peter acquire his powers or using a web shooter for the first time.
Instead, the moments which drive Peter's life into acquiring super powers are addressed subtly in dialogue rather than explicitly shown on screen.


In the film, Peter is walking with his best friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) and being asked every question the geeky counterpart can imagine. While we never hear Peter say he was bitten by a radioactive spider, Ned is the one who asks about it having heard the story moments before the scene began. He then goes on a rant, wondering how much it hurt to get bit by the spider and considers acquiring the powers for himself but Peter assures him, the spider is dead.

Spider-Man's Costume Upgrades in Spider-Man: Homecoming



Spider-Man: Homecoming is now in theaters, bringing the character of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a compelling story about how Peter Parker tries to prove himself as an Avenger. That story involves Peter getting a major upgrade in costume form the homemade duds he had been wearing - and upgrade that comes courtesy of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark/Iron Man.


What's Hot:






The trailers and promotional materials for Spider-Man: Homecoming have made Spider-Man's costume upgrades a major feature of the film. However, Marvel fans may not have been prepared for just how much of the film revolved around Spider-Man's suit upgrades - so here's a list of just how many of those features Peter had to utilize (or work around) during the events of Homecoming.
Here are Spider-Man's Costume Upgrades in Spider-Man: Homecoming.


PreviousSlide 1/8Next Karen

(Photo: Marvel Studios ) Like all of Tony Stark's hi-tech suits, Spider-Man gets an A.I. helper to help watch his back, and walk him through all of his suit's functions. Peter names his A.I. "Karen," which he feels is a lot more personal than calling her "Suit Lady."
As a nice Easter egg for Marvel fans, Karen gets a major celebratory voice in the form of Jennifer Connelly.






Electric Webs

One of the many webbing functions that Peter's Stark suit has is electric webs, which doesn't help Peter as much as he hopes, since he hasn't really mastered the different webbing functions when he goes into combat.
Hey, maybe in the sequel, or Avengers: Infinity War?






Web Wings

One of the biggest standout moments of the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers, was the scene where Peter takes flight on his very own web wings.
The wings are a throwback to some of the first Spider-Man comics, in which the wings were a regular part of Spider-Man's costume. They allow Peter to glide over a short distance - a feature he uses to save his friends from a near-death disaster at the Washington Monument.






Surveillance Mode

Spider-Man's new costume made a big splash in Captain America: Civil War for its animatronic eyes, which move and focus along with Peter's eye movement beneath his mask.
Spider-Man: Homecoming reveals that Spider-Man's mask and eye functions go way beyond simple animation; thanks to the Stark tech, Peter's mask offers a whole surveillance mode that allows him to see in different spectrums, like The Predator.



Peter uses surveillance mode to ambush The Vulture and his crew during their attempted heist of a truck convoy in Maryland. It also helps him save his friends later, during that calamity at the Washington Memorial.


PreviousSlide 5/8Next Web Grenades

Another one of the new webbing functions that Peter gets with his Stark suit is web grenades. These time-bomb-style weapons allow peter to shoot balls of webbing that suddenly burst open into net-like spider webs.
One of Spider-Man: Homecoming's biggest action sequences takes place on the Staten Island Ferry, where Peter must use a variety of different web functions to take out members of The Vulture's crew. The web grenades, in particular, resulted in one of the scene's biggest (and most impressive) bad guy takedowns.




PreviousSlide 6/8Next Spider-Drone

If the "Karen" A.I. wasn't enough, Peter gets assistance from a specialized Spider-drone built into his costume, which performs reconnaissance for him, and can even help map out entire environments.
The Spider-Drone comes in handy when Peter needs to get into the Washington Monument and save his friends, by helping Peter come up with a workable solution to entering the monument and getting to his friends, before the elevator they are on, plummets.


Not to mention: Spider-Drone is pretty darn cute!


PreviousSlide 7/8Next Enhanced Combat Mode (Shoot to Kill)

In one of the funniest recurring moments in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter has to keep telling Karen that he doesn't want to access "Shoot to Kill Mode," which is the colloquial name for this suit's enhanced combat mode.
When in ECM, Peter's Spider-Man eyes turn black, with little infrared dots for eyes. It's a scary look for the friendly neighborhood hero, and though Homecoming never goes down that dark path, there's still potential for fans to see that deadly version of the Spider-Man suit down the line in sequels or other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies - whether it's Peter in the suit, or someone more nefarious.


Have a theory on what that new Spider-Man costume is? Let us know

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director On Why Filming At Avengers Headquarters Was A Challenge



Spider-Man’s homecoming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was loaded with references and callbacks to previous films and iconic moments. It was very much a movie meant to welcome the Wallcrawler into the greater world of superheroes.
After debuting in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel Studios’ and Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: Homecoming pushed the character to the forefront, capped off with Tony Stark inviting the young hero to become the latest member of the Avengers.
The scene takes place in the swanky new Avengers compound in upstate New York, established after Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And while it was pretty awesome to see Parker smiling in front of the Avengers logo on the wall of the facility, it was intimidating for director Jon Watts to film such a scene.


“That big moment in the movie was always there,” Watts said to Cinema Blend. “But there was a question of how much will be designed, and how much will we be able to shoot, and how much will we be able to show. If anything, that was like, 'Really? You're going to show this? You're sure? OK, fine. Thank you! Yes, I will take that!' ... That was really fun to shoot. And just such a nice moment to see this kid, with this really goofy t-shirt on, smiling and staring out at Avengers compound with that big A behind him. It feels like, 'Wow, Spider-Man is really in the Marvel universe!’”
That scene really caps off an adventure in which Spider-Man is having to deal with the aftermath of the Avengers battles and Stark’s not taking him seriously. Spidey is left to his own devices to solve a problem that’s bigger than he is, and he saves the day.
It was a great way to introduce him to the MCU and make him an intrinsic part of the franchise’s future.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Alternate Posters Pay Homage To THE BREAKFAST CLUB, FERRIS BUELLER, & TAXI DRIVER

A trifecta of alternate posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming have been released online featuring our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler recreating a few classic movie posters from the '80s. Come take a look!





Spider-Man: Homecoming is the #1 movie in the world and while it's expected to face heavy competition from War for the Planet of the Apes this weekend, it still has a pretty solid shot at retaining its spot at the top of the worldwide box office for the second week in a row.


As the studios and fans everywhere continue to celebrate the film's success, Nerdist has obtained three pretty cool alternate posters for the Jon Watts-directed film, which contain homages to two of the John Hughes films that helped inspire the latest reboot (The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and to one unexpected Scorsese classic (Taxi Driver).

Check out the posters below:


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Director in Talks to Return for Sequel (Exclusive)



Watts helmed Sony and Marvel's new take on Spidey, which has earned $467.3 million worldwide in two weeks.


After successfully relaunching the Spider-Man franchise with Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony and Marvel are staying in business with director Jon Watts.


Watts is in talks to return for the sequel to the hit Spidey film, starring Tom Holland. The sequel, currently untitled, is already slated for release on July 5, 2019.
Watts was best known for directing the $5 million indie Cop Car starring Kevin Bacon, but he successfully made the leap to big-budget tentpoles with Homecoming, getting the gig to co-write and direct the project after pitching a coming-of-age teen story focused on the high school life of Peter Parker. The film, which also starred Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei, was deemed a box-office hit after it opened to $117 million domestically. It has earned $468.3 million worldwide in two weeks.
Holland will reprise his role as Peter Parker in the sequel. In the first film, Parker was a sophomore in high school who was trying to adjust to regular Brooklyn life after his adventures with the Avengers. The next film's story will pick up after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, which will hit theaters May 4, 2018, and will also feature Holland as Peter Parker.

Get A Closer Look At Peter Parker's Iron Spider Outfit From SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Were you excited to see the Peter's Iron Spider suit in Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming? Well, now you can get a closer look at the suit, and find out which future film the design came from. Take a look!





Dominik Zimmerle, the visual fx supervisor for Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming, recently spoke with Art of VFX in an extensive interview focusing on the work he did for the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only did he share his experience working on the film, he also provided images showcasing the vfx process, one of which includes Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) Iron Spider suit.

Thanks to the detailed descriptions and leaked trailer footage from D23 and Comic-Con, we now know that Peter will don the Iron Spider suit in Joe and Anthony Russo's Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, and according to Zimmerle, the design came straight from the film's concept art.

"The new Spider-Man suit was actually designed for one of the next installments of the MCU and models and textures were done by Framestore," revealed Zimmerle. "We took over the asset and did the lookdev based on provided Concept Art. The Vault itself was created from scratch by us. Our Concept Art department started from the closed outside look of it to define the graphical patterns and structure. Based on that we prepared simplified geometry and approached the interior look from an animation point of view, so how well we could create some more sophisticated opening animation with the available structure. The idea was to have a clean, high tech, presentation Vault for the new suit. It should appear distinctively “Stark” originated. Based on the feedback from the Studio we refined the interior structure and modeled, textured and look deved the Vault."

You can read more of Zimmerle's interview HERE and don't forget to let us know what you think in the usual place below!





















Spider-Man: Homecoming is now playing in theaters.

Chinese Spider-Man: Homecoming Posters Are Amazing, Involve Pandas and More


Spider-Man: Homecoming did really well when it hit theaters over the summer, but for many people around the world, the theatrical release was weeks ago, and seems like a distant memory. In fact, we've already moved on to getting excited about upcoming comic book properties like Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League. However, in China, the movie doesn't hit theaters until September 8, and now some interesting, adorable and otherwise hilarious posters have been released to the world. If you'd like to check out the cuddliest of those posters, we suggest the pandas, below.



The fun doesn't end at pandas, however. Born in China might be showing us the beauty and majesty of the Chinese landscape on Blu-ray this week, but if you'd rather see a take on the landscape that includes Spidey on a horse. Yes, the urban dweller is trying his hand at the equestrian arts.







We've gotten a lot of cheeky Spider-Man posters so far, but these are among the cheekiest, and the funniest, considering that Sony and Marvel's Homecoming movie does not spend any actual time in China and is supposed to be set in New York. The posters were first unveiled over at Reddit. We reached out to Sony to ask how official these posters are, and so far we haven't heard back. But they are certainly worth a look, as they are all totally in keeping with young Peter Parker's goofy, charming and somewhat sophomoric (but loveable) personality.


In the other posters, which we've accumulated in the gallery, below, you can check out Peter Parker in a variety of Chinese landscapes and at plenty of iconic locations. There are cranes, marvels of modern architecture, cranes and more involved in the rest of the images. Needless to say, China is in for a treat with Spider-Man: Homecoming, and we hope the country likes the movie as much as we like these posters.


Although, Spider-Man: Homecoming does not take place in China, Marvel has been noted for making changes to its movies to fit certain cultures and social demographics. The Chinese version of Iron Man 3, for example, features some background footage with Tony Stark at Chinese landmarks and more. Posters like these provide another example of changes, although Peter Parker's humor is certainly very similar here.


You can check out more images, below. And be sure to catch Spider-Man: Homecoming when it hits Blu-ray and Digital in the coming months. For now, you can take a look at what is headed into homes in September.

'Spider-Man' Writers Back For Sequel, Jon Watts Negotiating Return



After the success of Spider-Man’s first feature film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony is working on bringing back two integral members of the team for the sequel.
Screenwriting duo Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are in final negotiations to pen the webslinger’s follow-up adventure according to the Hollywood Reporter. THR also states that Sony and Marvel are in talks to bring director Jon Watts back to helm the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein handled the initial script for the first film, but McKenna and Sommers were brought in to handle rewrite duties on the set. Marvel and Sony were impressed by their abilities and gave them duties on both Ant-Man and the Wasp and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, according to the report.
McKenna and Sommers previously worked on series like Community, The Mindy Project, and American Dad, and they also contributed to The LEGO Batman Movie.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been a much-needed hit for Sony and has already outgrossed their previous attempt in the franchise; Homecoming has made $737 million thus far after a recent debut in Japan, while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 made just $708 million. Homecoming has yet to release in China.
Sony is also working on movies to expand their corner of the Marvel Universe, with spin-offs based on Venom and a Silver Sable/Black Cat team up movie currently in pre-production.
With rising star Tom Holland set to reprise the role of Spider-Man and the support of Marvel Studios' shared universe, it sounds like the wallcrawler’s future is in very good shape.
The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is due in theaters on July 5, 2019, and Spider-Man: Homecoming is rumored to hit Blu-ray and DVD in October.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Has Some Clever Marketing In Japan



Marvel and Disney’s international marketing team for Spider-Man: Homecoming took the movie’s Japanese film to new heights, somewhat literally.
A fan on Reddit shared a photo of some clever marketing for Spider-Man: Homecoming in Japan. While the theatrical poster showing Spider-Man hanging off of a skyscraper is familiar to Marvel fans by now, in Japan that same image of Spider-Man was applied to an actual skyscraper, the Mori Tower in Tokyo, so that people inside the building to could see Spidey looming large over the city’s skyline.
Take a look below.










Japan isn't the only international market having fun with its Spider-Man: Homecoming marketing. China has an entire line of unexpectedly fun Spider-Man: Homecoming posters, and at least one poster with a much darker tone.
That marketing campaign seems to be paying off for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The first Spider-Man movie set inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to gross over $780 million worldwide. The film has already grossed over $20 million in Japan and $740 million worldwide, with its Chinese opening still to come.
Domestically, Spider-Man: Homecoming has earned more than $324 million, beating the domestic box office total of the original Iron Man (though that does not take inflation or 3D movie prices into account).
Plans are already being made for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters in July 2019. Writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are signed on to return for the sequel and director Jon Watts is in talks to do the same.
