Great news, True Believers! Sony Pictures and Disney’s Marvel Studios have just, via a joint press release, announced that, for now, they will continue their partnership and let Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) stay in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. Together they will co-produce a sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home set to be released on July 16, 2021, and, the press release adds, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios-film.

Some people in the industry may have been questioning the future viability of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe after the incredible infinity saga came to an end recently. If Spider-Man: Far From Home didn’t convince the naysayers, then what Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios announced last night certainly did. Today, let’s talk about the Marvel Studios announcements at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. Continue reading “Feige Announces MCU Phase Four at San Diego Comic-Con – Special Features #54”
By this time next week, I will have seen Avengers: Endgame, the sequel to Infinity War and the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a total of three times. At this point in time, the MCU is this generation’s Star Wars. The build-up of hype for Endgame has been unreal. Even teasers with barely any new footage receive millions of views. The film is breaking tons of records already before it’s out in the wild. So, today, I thought I’d release ten predictions for Avengers: Endgame. Continue reading “Final Predictions for Avengers: Endgame – Special Features #50”
Marvelous Monday in 2016 posts once a month, on the second Monday of the month.
It’s been a long year with Marvelous Monday releasing almost every Monday in 2015. Today I look back at the most popular Marvelous Monday, and assess the superhero movie year for Fox and Disney. Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #47 – Looking Back On 2015”
Marvel Studios’ first two phases are over, and now we wait for the beginning of Marvel Studios’ Phase Three, which begins with Captain America: Civil War. I suggested some directors for two of Marvel’s Phase Three films (Thor: Ragnarok & Black Panther) on last week’s Marvelous Monday. This week I focus on Captain Marvel and Inhumans – let’s try to fill those director’s chairs! Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #33 – Phase Three’s Missing Directors (Pt. 2 of 2)”
Marvel Studios’ first two phases are over, and now we wait for the beginning of Marvel Studios’ Phase Three, which begins with Captain America: Civil War. But we are yet to hear from Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios about a crucial position in the production of a number of films: Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Inhumans. Let’s try to fill those director’s chairs! Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #32 – Phase Three’s Missing Directors (Pt. 1 of 2)”
Guardians of the Galaxy was probably the most popular 2014 film of ’em all, and in 2017 we’ll see its direct sequel. One of the most interesting aspects of that film is finding out just who Peter Quill’s father is. Now, we pretty much know it won’t be the comic book father – it won’t be J’Son of Spartax. That does annoy me somewhat, but I’m sure it’ll be great.
Now, in this post I won’t theorize on whether it’ll be Adam Warlock, Vance Astro or Starhawk (though my money’s on him). Instead I’ll go over some actors that could or should play the father of Chris Pratt’s Quill. Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #9 – Who Should Play Star-Lord’s Dad?”
For the uninitiated: This is a new weekly feature on the blog wherein I, I’m Jeffrey Rex, discuss all things Marvel.
On this, the fifth ‘installment’ of I’m Jeffrey Rex’ Marvelous Monday, I’ve decided to pitch my ideas for the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios co-production film. If you don’t know what I am talking about, then sit back, relax – and follow this link. Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #5 – 5 Ways to Reboot Spider-Man for Marvel”
Hey there! Recently, I was looking for some sort of New Year’s Resolution for the blog – a true commitment – something that mattered, and something that was important. I’ve decided to launch I’m Jeffrey Rex’ Marvelous Monday, which is a new feature to the website/blog, a weekly post about Marvel.
One week I may write about a recently released comic book from Marvel Comics, the next I may write about the state of Marvel Entertainment – and thereafter I may write about Marvel Studios (or another studio with rights to a Marvel Comics character). This does not mean that I won’t ‘break’ Marvel news on other weekdays, but every Monday will give me an opportunity to speculate about all things Marvel. The subject of the first Marvelous Monday ever is ‘Casting Carol Danvers’. Continue reading “Marvelous Monday #1 – Casting Carol Danvers”
Awhile ago, via the Sony-leaks, we learned of the potential Sony-Marvel deal to put Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today we’ve heard that the deal has been done. Spidey might be coming home. I will try to stay spoiler free in this article – so for huge spoilers go to original link provided at the bottom of the article.
I learned of this via Superhero Feed on Twitter, who acquired the information from Latino Review. So thank you, Latino Review for breaking this rumour. Latino Review writes that they: “[…] understand: […] Spider-Man IS in [Avengers: Infinity Wars – Part One], the Sony deal went through.”
Spider-Man was my favourite superhero when I was a kid, and I loved the Tobey Maguire-films – except for the third one. If this deal has, indeed, been done – then sit back, relax. Surely Marvel will fix Spider-Man. Right? Right?!
For the original article containing the rumour click here, however be careful – the article contains a lot of Marvel Phase 3 Potential Spoilers that might destroy the phase for you.
For more on Spider-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Superhero Speculation – don’t go anywhere.
