You think you know, but you have no idea.
Remember when we were all excited because it looked like we were getting a black Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming? Well, it turns out we were wrong. Zendaya is still set to star in the film, but she won't be playing Peter Parker's love interest.Read More
"If you’re complaining about the ethnicity of Mary Jane your life is too good."
Following his initial tweet on the subject, Gunn later wrote a longer Facebook post on the Spider-Man: Homecoming casting dissenters. While he isn't confirming whether the rumor is true (mostly because he doesn't know for certain), he makes the point that even the idea, the mere concept of casting a black woman as Mary Jane Watson should be more about what she can bring to the character.Read More
Are you freaking out? Because I'm freaking out.
Zendaya’s “key character” in Spider-Man: Homecoming has reportedly been revealed, and it looks like she’s no longer playing a character named "Michelle," as was hinted at first.Read More
Bear with us.
Hear me out: I’m looking forward to the Spider-Man reboot. I really am! I know it’s not the most worthwhile endeavor in the world, but I’m sure the MCU will do right by the character, and I’m happy to watch that all happen. You go, Uncle Ben! Die onscreen a third time! And now continue to hear me out: I hope the new movie reaches the heights of progressiveness regarding its female characters that the original Spider-Man trilogy did. No, really!Read More
Judging by this Invincible Iron Man #9 cover, it seems that for at least a little bit, we're going to get to see a very different someone taking on the Iron Man mantle.

Tony Stark loves him some redheads.
Does Tony Stark not have enough beautiful redheads around? In the All-New, All-Different Invincible Iron Man, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez are having Spider-Man's Mary Jane Watson join Team Iron Man.Read More
New York Comic Con kicks off this Thursday, and in theory if you've decided to cosplay then you have your costume mostly done by this point. But you and I, fellow procrastinators, know better. Sometimes you want to go as something, but you have neither the money nor the time to rig up a steampunk Harley Quinn outfit or some genderswapped Monterey Jack from Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers duds. Enter closet cosplay: The last vestige of the casual, lazy, cheap, and/or pressed-for-time cosplayer.Read More
Face it tiger, you hit the jackpot.
Did you grab Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez's Edge of Spider-Verse #2 yesterday? If you didn't, you should - it's an alternate reality comic where Gwen Stacy takes on the Spider-mantle. In the story, Gwen has a band, "The Mary Janes" - and now you can hear their hit single.Read More
What's that? Even more Spider-man movies without the annoying love triangle? Sold!
Despite the pacing and narrative problems of the first The Amazing Spider-Man, Sony's set to make not just two but three more films for your friendly neighborhood web-slinger. They originally had a trilogy in mind but decided otherwise -- and apparently this expansion that means that Mary Jane Watson's being bumped from the second movie to the third. So what are they going to do with all those scenes Shailene Woodley has already shot? Who knows? Who cares? More Gwen Stacey, please!Read More
