  1. Anna Kendrick Reads Femslash, Wants Quvenzhané Wallis to Play Spider-Man

    Rejoice, BeChloe shippers.

    I was varying degrees of disappointed and conflicted by Pitch Perfect 2 (look for our full review tomorrow), but regardless of the movie's many problematic elements, I still love that a comedy franchise about talented ladies getting shit done has found such a dedicated fandom... one that Anna Kendrick is about to make very happy.

  2. Marvel and Sony’s Short List for New Spider-Man Directors Is Not So Short

    Too bad we already tried the one named Webb.

    Deadline is reporting that Marvel and Sony may be nailing down the director of the new new Spider-Man reboot in the next few weeks, and they've got a few names in mind. Or more than a few. At least six of them, actually—a sinister six, if you will. Only instead of killing Spider-Man, hopefully they can save him.

  3. Spider-Man News: Actor Shortlist Announced; New Animated Film In the Works

  4. Sorry, Miles Morales Fans! Marvel’s Kevin Feige Confirms MCU’s Spider-Man Is Peter Parker

    There were those of us who hoped that once Marvel Studios and Sony made their deal to share Spider-Man, allowing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to bring the character into their films, that perhaps Marvel would take this opportunity to do something with the character that five Sony Spider-Man films had yet to do by bringing their already existing character, Miles Morales, into the MCU as Spidey, making him film's first Spider-Man of color. Sadly, this is not to be.

  5. President Obama Professes His Love for Comics Via Email, Asks for Supporters’ “Origin Stories”

    Barack Obama, president of DGAF.

    I love me some laid-back, no-more-campaigns-to-run, do-whatever-I-please, last-two-years-in-office president Barack Obama. Not that the president's love for comics was ever a better kept secret than Superman's real identity, but he'll pretty much say anything these days, which has resulted in a recent mass email involving Spider-Man, Conan, and a direct comparison between his supporters and superheroes.

    It's okay, Spider-Fans—the rumors aren't true (yet). Teen Wolf and The Maze Runner star and white dude Dylan O'Brien says that he hasn't been approached to play Spider-Man in Marvel's Phase 3.

  8. How It Should Have Ended Discusses Superhero Movies, the Oscars, Reboots

    Watch it for the ending. Trust us.

    I think my favorite thing about the HISHE YouTube channel is that over time, it's slowly evolved from a series of gimmicky movie parodies to what basically amounts to a superhero-themed episode of Seinfeld. Which I think makes Batman George? Yeah, Batman is totally George. Anyway, check out this edition of Super Café where they basically talk about nothing and it's the best thing ever.

  9. [UPDATED] Big Ol’ Rumor Time: Drew Goddard To Write Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man

    We've never gonna get a more appropriately named director than Mark Webb, though.

    Take it with a grain of salt, but if this news turns out to be true, then it looks like the latest Spidey flick will soon have its director. Now, if we could just hurry up and cast the lead already...

  12. Donald Glover Opens Up About Possibly Playing Spider-Man, Says It’s Up to the Fans Now

    My emotions!

    Remember five years ago when someone suggested that Spider-Man Peter Parker didn't have to be white and all the comic book loving racists in the world lost their damn minds? Unfortunately the world's not that much better off in 2015 as far as Internet comments go, but at least one thing has changed: a lot more people are super down to see Donald Glover sling some webs. But is the former Community star even interested at this point?

  15. Australia Banned a Kids’ Show Episode for Spreading Lies That Spiders Are Friendly

    ♫Spider-ban. Spider-ban.♫

    A kids' show not originally intended for audiences in regions where the wildlife is actively trying to kill you made the mistake of telling Australian children that spiders aren't scary and we can be their friends, which is factually inaccurate in Australia.

  18. The Epic Conclusion to Spider-Man and Sailor Moon’s Shared Enemy

    Part 3

    It was once my job to help develop new markets for Sailor Moon. At the time, I had some rather powerful data on my side regarding the success of the show in English-speaking territories. I had a #1 movie (Hearts in Ice) on Amazon. I had the #32 most popular Usenet group in the world. I had television ratings that tripled when seasons three and four premiered.

  19. The Saga of Spider-Man and Sailor Moon’s Shared Enemy Continues

    Part 2

    What do we mean when we say "mishandled character rights?" The answer is complex, but it also shines a bright spotlight on the very basis of what we all value when it comes to being fans of great franchises like Spider-Man and Sailor Moon. Mishandled character rights are their shared enemy, and far more dangerous than any super-villain.

  20. Did You Know Spider-Man And Sailor Moon Have A Shared Enemy?

    Part 1

    Marvel declared bankruptcy in 1996, and one of the key reasons was its inability to get into the film business. Despite record-setting comic book releases only a few years earlier, Marvel didn't have access to the box office dollars (and the attendant publicity) an iconic character like Spider-Man could bring them.
