Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have found their Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is Tom Holland who received critical raves for his performances in Wolf Fall and The Impossible – and is one of the stars of the upcoming The Heart of the Sea.
Jon Watts (Cop Car) has been named director of the as yet untitled Spider-Man movie.
Feige commented, “As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring.”
Producer Amy Pascal added, “Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Marvel Studios has begun production Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The film has an ambitious arc – ‘after another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.’
Captain America: Civil War will feature appearances by the Avengers cast as well as Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Agent 13/Sharon Carter (Emily Van Camp), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt), Brock Rumlow/Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and as yet to be revealed characters played by Daniel Brühl and Martin Freeman.
Captain America: is set for release on May 16, 2016. For more, follow the jump.

Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.

Since no one has been able to replicate the super-soldier serum that gave Steve Rogers his enhanced abilities, Henry Pym took a different tack – he wondered if he could find a way to shrink a human being to ant size without sacrificing that person’s strength.
Imagine the force of a human-sized punch thrown by an any-sized person – all that force concentrated in a tiny impact zone. That would definitely leave a mark
A fringe benefit might be that our ‘Ant-Man’ could infiltrate the most secure locations. And what if, Pym wondered, ‘that person could communicate with ants? He’d have a ready-built army at his disposal. Ant-Man doesn’t sound so silly now, does it?
