Just months before the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 2017), Sony has announced that they will indeed go forward with plans to release a Spider-Man spin-off film based on one of the most popular villains Marvel, Venom.
Sony has scheduled Venom to be released October 5, 2018, the same date that Aquaman was set to release before Warner Bros. moved it back to December 21, 2018.
Details that are coming out of various sites so far say that this Venom film will exist separately from the MCU/ Tom Holland universe. Penning the script are Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner with Avi Arad (Iron-Man, Spider-Man) and Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man Homecoming) producing the film.
The only other time we had a chance to see the alien symbiote on the big screen was in Spider-Man 3, where the villain was played by Topher Grace. It’s safe to say that that version of Venom was not what fans were quite expecting.

Carrying over from the first film, Guardians of the Galaxy has set a pretty high standard when it comes to marketing. As we near the release of ‘Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ we have just received a new trailer and without a doubt continues to maintain if not exceed fan expectations. Check it out for yourself right here!
We are introduced to a lot of new characters and concepts in this new trailer, but overall we still have no idea what film is actually about. In my opinion, that is exactly what a marketing campaign for a film should be. Throughout this trailer we are reminded exactly why we love this core group of characters while simultaneously introducing some new of the new key players. We get to see Mantis all up in the action, Nebula possibly joining the guardians (or kill them, it goes back and forth) and Michael Rooker’s return as Yondu. And lets not forget the end reveal of Kurt Russell, introduced as Peter Quills’ father.
Now their has been some slight negative feedback when it comes to the Kurt Russell reveal at the end of the trailer, which is pretty much to be expected given the “fans” troll the internet. But within 12 hours of the trailer dropping, Director James Gunn took to twitter and reassured fans that this was no massive spoiler. Actually the clip is supposedly from the beginning of the film and sets up the actual major overarching plot, which we still no very little about. Fans can come up with all sorts of connections and theories but the truth of the matter is that this is fresh material written up by Gunn himself. Despite whatever source material may have inspired him, we are getting a James Gunn Guardians of The Galaxy story and I personally couldn’t be more excited.

We are rapidly approaching the release of Hugh Jackman’s final outing as “The Wolverine”. Personally I am sold on this flick and really don’t need to see another frame of footage prior to release. But for those of you out there who need to see EVERYTHING possible then today is your lucky day. 20th Century Fox has released the First Clip for ‘LOGAN’!
In the near future, a weary Logan’s (Hugh Jackman) attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. Check it out right here!
And just incase that little clip didn’t sell you on the film, or your still sitting on the fence, check out the full red-band trailer right here, where we get a chance to see X-23 in action! If this doesn’t do it for you, then I’m not sure this movie is for you.
Directed By James Mangold and starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Introducing Dafne Keen.
Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
The second “teaser” trailer (I use the word teaser loosely) for “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” was released this passed weekend and it’s something to really be excited about! We are so excited that we made a list of 5 key things about the trailer that has us wanting May 5, 2017 to come a whole lot sooner.
Outer Space Dog Fights
At 48 seconds into the trailer, we see Star-Lord piloting a ship while in a space chase with an army of ships going after him. We seen just a little bit of intergalactic warfare going on in the first “Guardians of the Galaxy” film and seeing this makes us hopeful that there will be a lot more of it this time around.
Baby Groot in Action
No longer is Baby Groot an adorable dancing infant twig, he’s now adorably kicking-ass twig in his youth. There’s even a clip of him playing the hero with an atomic bomb.
First Look at a New Guardian: Mantis
We get our first look at Mantis played by Pom Klementieff. In the comics, Mantis had a couple of different looks. The oldest version of Mantis had flesh colored skin with a pair of antenna, which is the one director James Gunn decided to go with, though Mantis’ attire looks closer to the more recent version of Mantis. In this scene in the trailer, we also get to see a tease of the ability Mantis holds. More on this below…
Star-Lord and Gamora’s Relationship Continues to Heat Up
In the same scene where we see Mantis for the first time, she displays her ability at the expense of Star- Lord’s embarrassment. One of the many abilities Mantis has is the power to feel the feelings of others just by touching them. Mantis touches the hand of Star-Lord which leads to an hilarious and awkward situation with Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax.
The Galaxy Looks Much, Much Bigger!
From the explosions, the new characters and all the way to the galaxy itself, just about everything in this teaser trailer suggests that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” will be much bigger than the first film. Half of the scenes in this teaser trailer takes place in air rather than on ground and it gives it the feel that it’s much larger in scale. This is always a good thing.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 hits theaters May 5, 2017 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell.

(PCM) It has recently been revealed that despite some major creative differences in the past, Fox and Marvel did come together and swap characters for both “Deadpool” and “Guardians Of The Galaxy vol. 2”.
Fox holds the rights to some very key Marvel properties including both X-Men and Fantastic Four so in turn they hold the movie rights to some popular Marvel characters. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown enormously over the last few years, so it is only natural that the MCU would wish to explore new storylines that feature some of the characters that are currently owned by Fox.
While obviously there is not going to be any huge partnership between Fox and Marvel anytime soon, much to the dismay of fans, we have now learned that the two companies have worked together on two of their biggest film franchises: “Deadpool” and “Guardians Of The Galaxy vol. 2”.
It has been revealed that there was some character swapping when it came to specifically the use of the X-Men character Negasonic Teenage Warhead in “Deadpool”. The character went through a number of changes that had to be cleared by Marvel for the film. In return, Marvel requested a character that was owned by Fox to be used in “Guardians Of The Galaxy vol. 2”.
Kurt Russell’s Ego the Living Planet in the new ‘Guardians’ movie was the character that Fox swapped with Marvel to allow the change to Negasonic Teenage Warhead powers, according to Deadpool writer Paul Wernick during a recent Q&A.
Below you can find the release dates for the upcoming Marvel and Fox films:
“Doctor Strange” is now in theaters; “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” – May 5, 2017; “Spider-Man: Homecoming”– July 7, 2017; “Thor: Ragnarok” – November 3, 2017; “Black Panther” – February 16, 2018; “Avengers: Infinity War” – May 4, 2018; “Ant-Man and the Wasp” – July 6, 2018; and “Captain Marvel” on March 8, 2019.
“Logan” hits theaters on March 3, 2017, followed by “Deadpool 2” on January 12, 2018. Movie versions of “Gambit”, “New Mutants” and “X-Force” are still currently being developed.
