Tom Holland Confirms Spider-Man Will Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Coming as no great surprise, the appearance of Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War has been confirmed by the actor behind the web-slinger himself, Tom Holland.

Tweets from twitter account TomHollandItaly reveal snapshots from an interview with Holland telling Vogue Magazine:

“It is they who convinced the Marvel (Downey and Evans) .. the producers wanted to be sure that I was the right person before you entrust three films over the next four years, including ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’”

The amount of Spider-Man in Infinity War is still unknown but after stealing the show in Captain America: Civil War, the character obviously gels incredibly well with the Avengers and it would be a mistake not to include him in what will undoubtedly be the biggest Marvel movie of all time. The film is currently rolling into production and slated to hit theaters May 4, 2018.

Woody Harrelson Officially Joins Young Han Solo Movie

Just last week, THR reported Woody Harrelson was in talks with Lucasfilm to join the Young Han Solo standalone feature which will begin filming next month at Pinewood studios. Lucasfilm has now confirmed Harrelson has indeed been cast in the project. His role, however, is still unknown but the rumor is that Harrelson will play a character that serves as a mentor to the young Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich.

The film’s directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller released a statement regarding the casting of Harrelson:

“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody. His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”

The cast also includes Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian and Emilia Clarke in a role that is still currently unknown. President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy has described the young Han Solo film as a western with a color palette influenced by the paintings of Frederic Remington. The script has been penned by Star Wars writing veteran Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. With cinematographer Bradford Young on board, the film has the potential to have a bold look and feel that could strike a perfect balance between humor and drama.

The Untitled Han Solo Story is slated to hit theaters May 25, 2018, however, there is a rumor the film could be shifted to Holiday 2018. MakingStarWars.net claims to have a source in the theater industry that has received a release date for a Star Wars film on December 13, 2018. While May was the home of Star Wars for many decades, Star Wars has become part of the holiday season in the new era of the franchise.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Will Dig Deeper Into The Characters

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-2-17-43-pm

When Star Wars returned to cinemas at the end of 2015, the franchise introduced us to a new set of iconic heroes as well as a villain who solidified himself as one of the most flawed and interesting villains in Star Wars history. While everyone was intrigued and captivated by Rey thanks to the powerful performance given by Daisy Ridley, the most interesting and layered character by far was Kylo Ren played by Adam Driver.

Kylo Ren felt more like a real person than most Star Wars characters. Driver portrayed a man who was struggling to be something he wasn’t as Kylo seemed to almost overcompensate with his forceful step through scenes in which he aspired to be as menacing as his Grandfather Darth Vader. He used his mask as a pure intimidation tactic to instill fear in his enemies as he knew his scarless, clean shaven face wouldn’t frighten anybody. Throughout the film, the man formerly known as Ben Solo struggled between the dark and the light side of the force but in the end ultimately made the choice to extinguish the light within him and fully commit himself to evil when he murdered his father, Han Solo.

While Kylo was a fully fleshed out three-dimensional character, the same cannot be said for the other new characters introduced in The Force Awakens. One of the biggest complaints coming out of the film was that the new characters of Rey, Finn (John Boyega), and Poe (Oscar Isaac) were rather thin and as much as I loved them, I have to agree. Adam Driver recently told Larry King that Episode VIII will explore Kylo Ren’s humanity, or what little he has left of it, but now the film’s director, Rian Johnson, while speaking with USA Today offered up new details teasing that the film will dig deeper into the core of the new characters:

“I wanted to know more about each of them, and that doesn’t just mean information or backstory. Figure out what’s the most difficult thing each of them could be challenged with now — let’s throw that at them and dig into what really makes them tick by seeing how they handle that.”

Nothing about the plot for Episode VIII is known at this point other than it will pick up directly where The Force Awakens left off but Lawrence Kasdan, the writer of The Empire Strikes BackReturn of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens called the script for Episode VIII “weird” which is a compliment coming from Kasdan. Adam Driver has teased the film will be “darker” in tone, comparing it to how Empire was a darker film than A New Hope, and John Boyega has said that Johnson has managed to craft a Star Wars film that has an “indie movie” feel. But Johnson has promised that while the film — said to be weird and dark as it digs deeper into the characters — will have the same fun factor that The Force Awakens and the classic trilogy had:

“I want it to be a blast and to be funny and to be a ride the way The Force Awakens and the original Star Wars movies were.”

Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters December 15, 2017.

The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar IsaacDomhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, and Andy Serkis. Written and directed by Rian Johnson.

Gamora Confirmed to Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Screen Shot 2017-01-09 at 5.13.34 PM.png

Last night at the Golden Globes, Zoe Saldana herself confirmed she would indeed appear as Gamora in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War while speaking with MTV News, however, the actress revealed she yet to see the script:

“I don’t know when they’re gonna let me read it. I mean, I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there.”

The film which isn’t due out until May 4, 2018, will undoubtedly be the biggest and most expensive Marvel film in history. At this point, the film is overflowing with characters and if it wasn’t for the fact that The Russo Brothers are at the helm I’d be worried. But the Russo’s already proved with Captain America: Civil War that they can jam pack a film full of superheroes and keep the film well balanced and focused while using each and every superhero effectively.

During tonight’s 74th Annual Golden Globes, Disney dropped a new TV spot for the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast featuring more of Emma Watson singing as Belle and it sounds absolutely fantastic. I truly believe Alan Menken is going to outdo his original score for the animated classic with the new version he has made for this remake.

Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.

The film stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, with a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Stephen Chbosky, directed by Bill Condor.

In this live-action re-imagining of the fairy tale, a young woman (Emma Watson) takes her father’s place as prisoner in a beast’s castle, only to fall in love with her beastly captor (Dan Stevens), who turns out to be a prince.

The remake brings to life all of the characters from the original plus a new character: a harpsichord named Cadenza created just for the film, voiced by Stanley Tucci. The film will also include the return of the animated classic’s composer Alan Menken who has composed three new original songs for the film titled “Our Song Lives On”, “Days in the Sun”, and “Forever More”.
