Spider-Man just moved to the top of his class at the box office. (Like that was unexpected)
Thanks to Iron Man Influence Spider-Man: Homecoming is projected to earn $117 million from 4,348 locations in North America in its opening weekend. That’s well above the studio estimates of $80-90 million for the film (Studio needs higher up its hopes), which carries a $175 million production budget.
Spoilers incoming for Spider-Man: Homecoming, so if you haven’t seen it yet, you’ve been warned.
Fans know the Sinister Six hasn’t had the best on-screen luck. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 tried to set up the villainous gang a few years back, but nothing ever came of the tease. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the newest film to nod towards the rough-and-tough gang. And, now, the film’s writers are talking about how the nefarious squad settles into the MCU.
We already know that the first ever Justice League live-action movie is going to hit the theatres in a few months, and it will feature the Iconic DC superheroes team up together for the first time and taking on a storm of Parademons that were teased in the dream sequence of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and were also featured in the second trailer of the movie.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters this week and that means Marvel Studios will soon turn its full attention to promoting Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Ragnarok. With Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster and Cate Blanchett’s Hela, this just might be the ‘Winter Soldier’ of Thor solo movies. Though this first TV spot doesn’t feature any new footage, just the fact that it was released is a sign that Ragnarok’s going to have a lengthy promotional campaign leading up to its November 3 release.
If Spider-Man: Homecoming is any indication, perhaps Marvel Studios has learned how to keep its biggest surprises and twists out of marketing material as the Tom Holland-led pic had an onslaught of clips and TV spots released but apparently still hid its largest secrets.
Since the major cliffhanger in the Season 5 finale of The CW’s Green Arrow series Arrow, we have pretty much not gotten any new details about Season 6. But thanks to the latest edition of TV Line’s Inside Line with Matt Mitovich, we now have some new information about who the main villain might be for the sixth season.
When a fan asked for some scoops about the upcoming season, Mitovich teased that “the next, yet-to-be-cast Big Bad has been on many a fan’s wish list.” While Arrow has introduced pretty much most of Green Arrow’s Rogues Gallery, there is one that we have yet to meet: Onomatopoeia.
