At a time when many blockbuster franchises are sputtering — the domestic gross for this year’s “Pirates of Caribbean” sequel fell 29 percent from the last installment’s, while “Transformers: The Last Knight” fell a staggering 47 percent — the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continued to dominate at the box office. This weekend, the 17th film in the series, “Thor: Ragnarok,” earned the biggest opening at the box office in two months: a $121 million domestic start and a running global total of $427 million. With that result, the MCU has now made $5 billion in lifetime domestic grosses — and $13 billion worldwide since “Iron Man” launched the series nearly a decade ago.

Sony has proven it can still produce money-making Spider-Man movies. After two tries with Andrew...
The new Spider-Man actor has a bit of a reputation for accidentally revealing secrets.
Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland chose not to go commando under his superhero costume. The British actor wore a thong while filming scenes for the latest instalment of the Marvel franchise but admits he did have some "misgivings" about the underwear. Holland, 21, takes on his first solo outing as Spider-Man aka Peter Parker in Jon Watts' standalone epic, having previously played the character in Captain America: Civil War.
Tom Rothman is betting the film will reinvigorate his studio's biggest asset — thanks in large part to a deal with Marvel by his predecessor.
Speaking at Sydney's Supanova Comic-Con via Skype, director Jon Watts appeared to confirm that there would be multiple post-credits scenes for the film, all of which would be "worth sticking around for", as reported by Twitter user Tyler James. It's likely they'll function largely as Doctor Strange's post-credits scenes did: one looked forward to Thor: Ragnarok in a scene between Strange and Thor directed by Taika Waititi, the other set up a possible Doctor Strange sequel with Chiwetel Ejiofor's Baron Mordo as the villain. Jon Watts confirms that Homecoming has after credit scenes that are definately "worth sticking around for" (Obviously).
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. In cinemas 7 July.
As if Sony and Marvel reaching an agreement to share the rights to Spider-Man wasn’t enough of a surprise on its own, no one was prepared for one of the first pieces of casting news to come out of the deal. Not long after young British actor Tom Holland was announced as the new Peter Parker/Spidey, Marvel stunned fans by casting Marisa Tomei as Peter’s Aunt May, the role previously portrayed by Sally Field in the two ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ films with Andrew Garfield, and Rosemary Harris in the original ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy with Tobey Maguire.
It’s official: cameras are rolling on ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ the epic comic book movie that the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to thus far – and as proof, Marvel have released this short but oh-so sweet featurette from the set of the production.
Michael Keaton will forever be associated with superhero movies. He skewered the genre in Oscar-winner ‘Birdman’ and will play a villain in this summer’s ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ but he will always be best known for playing Batman.
2017 looks set to be a banner year for superhero cinema, so here are 10 of the biggest blockbusters based on comic book properties set to dominate over the year ahead.
The new Spider-Man movie title has been officially announced – and it’s ‘Spider-Man Homecoming’. As revealed last week – thanks to some clumsy URL registration – the title has now been confirmed by Sony at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas. It’s the perfect title for the new reboot which will see Marvel’s biggest superhero literally coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe mixing with his comic stablemates the Avengers.
