Into the Spider-Verse Animation Uses ‘Comic Book Techniques’ Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘s animation uses comic book-inspired techniques, according to co-writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. When Marvel Studios announced it was partnering up with Sony Pictures to bring Peter Parker into the MCU, word also arrived that a new animated Spider-Man film was in the works. Soon enough, Shameik Moore was cast as Miles Morales, hot off his work on Netflix’s The Get Down.

Zack Snyder Gets Special Gift From Justice League Kids A group of six children with various disabilities who were transformed into the Justice League by photographer Josh Rossi earlier in the year have presented the movie’s director, Zack Snyder, with a special gift. After much anticipation, the DC Extended Universe’s multi-hero extravaganza was released last month to a mixed reception and unspectacular box office sales.

Venom director confirms which two story arcs the film will be based on So at the Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil a couple days ago, Sony introduced VENOM director Ruben Fleischer to fans (via satellite) to give a few details about the anticipated upcoming film. While there unfortunately was no new footage or set pics or anything (though star Tom Hardy did show up for a bit), Fleischer was able to reveal that the film will be based primarily on...

Justice League Cracks $600 Million at Global Box Office Justice League has finally cracked $600 million at the global box office, despite trailing behind Coco domestically this weekend. In the wake of Justice League finally releasing and uniting the titans of the DC Comics, information has begun pouring in detailing how Warner Bros rushed their shared universe into production. Though the wait may seem long, it appears the studio was overeager to replicate Marvel Studios’ success with The Avengers in 2012 and scrambled to make Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel into the start of a similar franchise.

At this point, it’s safe to say Justice League is a misfire. Critics didn’t care for it, it underperformed at the box office to the point that it’s caused a shake-up behind the scenes at Warner Bros., and all anyone wanted to talk about was Henry Cavill‘s weird CGI face hiding his mustache. As rumors abound about deleted scenes, cinematographer Fabian Wagner confirms that the film originally featured Superman black suit scenes, recalling the outfit used for Superman’s resurrection in the comic books following The Death of Superman arc.

Speaking at the Sao Paulo Comic Con Experience, Venom star Tom Hardy has finally confirmed longstanding rumors that the film will be inspired by the classic Lethal Protector comic book miniseries. Sony’s Venom is one of the more intriguing films due out next year. It’s the first of a proposed series of Spider-Man spinoffs, with each movie starring members of the webhead’s rogues’ gallery. It’s uncertain at this stage whether or not the movies will be part of the MCU, however, and fans have been wondering how you can possibly make Venom work without Spider-Man.

‘Justice League’ is Making Warner Reconsider the DCEU By Sheryl Oh Some major changes are happening in the studio in the wake of their latest superhero disappointment. This was kind of a “we saw this coming moment,” but Variety has dropped a report that Warner Bros. is moving some key pieces around behind the scenes to make sure the DCEU stays afloat. The abysmal performance of Justice League is said to have left parent company Time Warner with ruffled feathers, leading to the shake-up. DC Films will be undergoing some restructuring in the new year.

Possible Venom movie logo spotted at Brazil Comic-Con The VENOM movie will finally give fans of the comic the gritty, mature, and hopefully, R-rated and violent version of the Spider-Man character they’ve grown to love over the years. We can only hope the character will look cool too, but before we see any of him we have our first glimpse at what may be the movie’s logo, and with it a brand new hashtag you can use with all the other cool kids....
