Spider-Man might be able to do whatever a spider can, but based on his cinematic career to date, that doesn't include the ability to hold down a successful movie franchise. Although the Marvel Entertainment character has been on the big screen since the late 1970s, it's only in the last 14 years that he's really been a regular presence, with five movies (and one reboot) ahead of his Marvel Studios debut in this week's Captain America: Civil War. But which of the onscreen Spider-Men have been closest to the comic book original? Which movie has managed to find the right mix of soap opera and superheroics that's integral to the character's appeal? And, as we should ask of all movies, which of the many Spider-Man features includes an entirely unnecessary jazz club sequence that saps momentum out of the storytelling? The Amazing Spider-Man/Spider-Man Strikes Back/Spider-Man: The Dragon's Challenge (1977, 1978, 1979) The first Spider-Man movies to hit theaters weren't exactly movies — … [Read more...] about ‘Spider-Man’ Movies Revisited: The Forgotten and Amazing Big-Screen Adventures
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Sony/Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming.] One of the better running gags in the new film Spider-Man: Homecoming is how 15-year-old Peter Parker, in an attempt to hide his superheroic alter ego from his friends and family, says that he’s in an internship program for Stark Industries. Better that than revealing that he’s the viral-video sensation Spider-Man, enabled by Tony Stark as a possible future recruit for the Avengers. The Stark connection makes this new Spider-Man a good deal different than earlier cinematic iterations of the character — which isn’t always in the film’s favor. The newest version of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tom Holland) was introduced in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, when Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man brought him into the fold to fight against Captain America and his half of the Avengers. As Spider-Man: Homecoming unfolds, Peter is antsy and … [Read more...] about Does the Marvel Universe Help or Hurt ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’?
Dan Gvozden, a life-long Spider-Man fan, is a Heat Vision contributor and co-host of Amazing Spider-Talk podcast. Several weeks ago, at my bachelor party, a friend asked me, "Why Spider-Man?" Out of context, it must seem like a strange question to be answering at one's bachelor party, instead of engaging in male-centric merriment and copious amounts of alcohol. But you see, I'm no ordinary fan of the webbed wonder, I'm what you might call a fanatic. I will never forget the first time I encountered the character, peeling back the pages of the gold-covered Amazing Spider-Man No. 375. Inside the pages of that comic I met Peter Parker, in a costume that was torn to shreds while investigating a man named Eddie Brock, the host of a creature named Venom. Comics! I had no idea what was going on, but I knew I needed more, precisely 374 more issues' worth. Since that day, I set out to collect every single issue of Amazing Spider-Man ever printed, now totaling nearly 800 issues. Thousands of … [Read more...] about Why Spider-Man Means So Much
Sony and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: Homecoming should cast a powerful web when swinging into theaters this weekend. If prerelease tracking is correct, the critically acclaimed reboot should fly past $100 million in North America, although Sony is being more conservative and suggesting $80 million. Spider-Man's sixth outing on the big screen, in this third different franchise, is also opening in numerous overseas locations, roughly 60 percent of the international marketplace. The big-budget tentpole is a rescue mission for several reasons. Not only does it reboot Sony's marquee superhero franchise at a time when the studio is sorely in need of a box-office win, it comes at a tipping point for the domestic summer box office. In rather worrisome news, box-office revenue has fallen more than 10 percent behind that of 2016 after a string of event films underperformed (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Wonder Woman being the big exceptions). Sony — which had sole responsibility … [Read more...] about Box-Office Preview: Can ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Scale $100M in U.S. Launch?
