Tom Hardy Continues To Look Like The Only Good Part Of Venom

New reports on the Venom movie are in and it looks like Tom Hardy is the only bright spot coming out of this mess. The Hashtag Show reported that instead of Eddie Brock coming into contact with the original alien symbiote (the Klyntarr,) a parasite that drove it’s connected human mad over time, this version will use the Ultimates Venom, a biosuit created by the parents of Eddie Brock and Peter Parker to help people with cancer. This is not one of our favorite iterations.

The movie is also looking to cast Ann Weying, a lawyer who is also Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. I’m all for that, but Weying does end up becoming She-Venom at some point, which we only oppose because the name is ridiculous. There’s still time, Tom. Run. Run away.

Spiderman Tells That He Is Slinging Into More Solo Films

spider-man-web-wings-216099

Well Spidey himself Tom Holland at one point had said who he would LIKE to go up against or team up with in future films but never really directly said if he would be back for solo sequels. Well now we have a definitive response and it’s YES Spiderman will have two more solo films after HOMECOMING.

During an interview with French site Allocine, Peter Parker actor Tom Holland appeared to let slip that there is indeed a third installment on the radar:

“There is still plenty of room to see Peter grow up Parker and especially Spider-Man in the next two movies, and at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the story is definitely not complete, I’m really looking forward to exploring how it will grow, [and to] see what will happen after puberty. Yes, [they’re] going to be exciting movies.”

Just to be certain, the site asked Holland to clarify his words, to which he responded: “Yes, there will be Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 3. Now, you know, sorry, Marvel, oops!”

Though this has obviously yet to be made official, Holland’s comments do seem like pretty solid confirmation.

Not a huge surprise, perhaps, but there was always the possibility that the deal between Marvel and Sony was only going to allow for two solo movies, so it’s nice to know for sure that this won’t be the case.

Spider-Man Homecoming: Zendaya’s Character Revealed

At this point, you should know that “spoiler alert” is all over this one, so if you don’t want to know who Zendaya is going to be playing in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, leave now!

…We’re serious!

…Last chance

…According to the novelization of the movie which is always released before the movie and often doles out a few spoilers, Zendaya’s character has been given a first and last name. That name is Michelle Toomes. Yes, Toomes, as in Adrian Toomes daughter. This adds even more of a spark of intrigue to the movie, as we’ve seen interactions between Peter and Michelle in trailers, so you can only assume her being the Vulture’s daughter is going to matter. Now we know why they hid who Zendaya was playing this whole time. Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres on July 7th, everywhere!
