Spider-Man is coming home – literally. Yesterday, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Tom Holland made an important announcement. The web-slinging new addition to the cast of Captain America: Civil War unveiled the title of his own new movie, airing in July 2017. Spider-Man: Homecoming is an obvious nod to the fact that Marvel’s prodigal son […]

There’s epic new footage, including shots of Batman…lots of Batman actually. Still no real deeper content on Katana, Slipknot, or Enchantress […]

[Writer’s note: As James and Mike pointed out in the comments below, the lawsuit against Axanar was filed jointly, by both Paramount and CBS. That kind of junks the legal defense outlined here – and we have written a correction detailing so. However, we’ll leave this original article in place because it still makes interesting […]
