Spider-Man Spinoff Film ‘Morbius’ Has Its Release Date Pushed Back By A Few Months

Some disappointing news for all you comic book fans out there. You’ll have to wait a little longer to watch Jared Leto in the Spider-Man spinoff film, Morbius.

The movie, which is part of Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe, was scheduled to hit theaters January 28, 2022. It had already been delayed several times before. It was first scheduled to be released way back in July of 2020, but of course COVID-19 screwed everything up.

Then it was scheduled for March 19, 2021, then October 8, then January 2022, and now finally April 1, 2022, which kinda feels like some weird joke. April Fools, really? Is this when they plan to tell everyone they lost all footage from the movie and it’s never going to be released?

Provided this movie actually gets released in April, it’ll feature Leto playing antihero Michael Morbius, “who attempts a desperate gamble in order to treat a rare blood discoed, one that makes him more familiar with a darkness inside of him.”

In addition to Leto, this flick will star Michael Keaton, Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson and Adria Arjona.

With the success of Spider-Man, Sony is hoping Morbius can get at least a little taste of that success, but if they continue pushing it back, people are going to lose interest.

Tom Holland Talks About How He Found Out He Was Cast As Spider-Man, And It’s Pretty Wild

Tom Holland is now known as Spider-Man, and he’s one of the hottest young actors in Hollywood, but just a few years back…his life was much different.

The world found out he was going to be the next Spider-Man back in June of 2015, and surprisingly, that’s when Holland found out as well.

During an interview for Variety’s Actors on Actors, the 24-year-old actor talked to fellow actor Daniel Kaluuya about the painful and extremely long audition process.

He auditioned for the role for a total of seven months, and during each round, they don’t tell you anything. Eventually, he got a call to do a screen test in Atlanta with Robert Downey Jr.

And even though there were six other actors also doing a screen test, Holland left feeling like he got the role.

There was me and six other kids, and [Robert] Downey [Jr.] was there, so we all tested with Downey, which was crazy. It’s the best audition I’ve ever done, him and I were riffing off each other. My agents told me that Marvel likes you to learn the words exactly — you can’t improvise. And then, on the first take, Downey just completely changed the scene. We started riffing with each other, and I mean, to sound like a bit of a dick, I rang my mum afterward and was like, ‘I think I’ve got it.’

Six weeks later, he (and just one other actor) got called to do a fight scene with Captain America.

And then a few weeks went by, and he hadn’t heard anything, so he thought maybe he didn’t end up getting the role. But then, as he was golfing with his father, he saw that Marvel had posted something about Spider-Man on their Instagram.

I got my computer, and my dog was sitting next to me. I type in ‘Marvel.’ I’ve still got the article saved on my computer. It said, ‘We would like to introduce our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland.’ I broke my computer, because I flipped it up in the air. It fell off my bed; my dog went nuts. I ran downstairs. I was telling my family, ‘I got the part! I got the part!’

The drama wasn’t finished though. He then remembered how Sony had just been hacked, and his brother was telling him that the news probably wasn’t real.

But finally, the studio called him to confirm the news, and the rest is history.

Tom Holland Reveals How A Drunken Phone Call With Disney’s Bob Iger Might Have Saved Spider-Man

You all probably remember the ‘Spider-Man’ drama earlier this year. The franchise was *this close* to being pulled out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe because they couldn’t work out a deal with rights owner Sony.

Thankfully, the two companies were able to work out an agreement, but not before causing a lot of tears. Tom Holland recently revealed that he was extremely emotional about the whole thing.

When the news first broke, he asked if he could send Disney CEO Bob Iger an email…

I just wanted to say thank you, I wanted to say, ‘This has been an amazing five years of my life, thank you for changing my life in the best way, and I hope that we can work together in the future,’

I got his email address, I sent him the email, and then he responded very quickly saying, ‘I’d love to jump on the phone at some point, when are you free?’ And you don’t give Bob Iger a schedule, you’re like, ‘Whenever, Bob.’

And as luck would have it, Iger called him while he was at a “pub quiz” with his family. He admitted to Jimmy Kimmel that he was “three pints in” on a fairly empty stomach when Iger called him.

I’m like, ‘I think this is Bob Iger…but I’m drunk.’ So my dad’s like, ‘Just take the call, you’ll do fine!’ I basically just said, ‘Thank you for the opportunity,’ and he said, ‘There is a world in which we can make this work’ and then there were a bunch of phone calls back and forth.

I weeped. No, I didn’t weep — I did, yeah. Yeah, no, I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end.

So who knows, maybe it was Holland’s tears that made Iger want to reach an agreement more. It’s tough to hear a grown man cry, you know?

The Second Trailer For ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Has People Hyped! Check Out The Action Inside!

For the past two years, Spider-Man has been enjoying his time in the spotlight. Last year, the incredibly successful ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘ was released inside theaters. It scored a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and made over $850 million worldwide.

And then last month, the new ‘Spider-Man’ game dropped on the PS4 and the internet went crazy. It’s one of the best reviewed games of the year. It sold 3.3 million copies in its first three days of release.

Now all you Spidey fans can look forward to the upcoming animated feature, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

This movie looks stunning. I’m not a huge fan of animated flicks and I don’t vibe with Superhero movies, but for some reason…I’m diggin’ this trailer.

We learned it would feature a seasoned Peter Parker (voiced by Jake Johnson) crossing over into the universe of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) to mentor the younger Spidey. Gwen Stacy’s Ghost Spider (formerly Spider-Gwen) also made a brief appearance.

Now that the second full-length trailer for the film has landed, we know that’s only the beginning. When they said ‘Spider-Verse,’ they meant at least six Spider-heroes.”

This movie will hit theaters December 14, 2018, ending a very special year for the Spider-Man universe.

Watch The First Trailer For Sony’s Standalone ‘Venom’ Movie

Tom Hardy’s spin-off Spider-Man film is set to be released later this year, and Sony just released the first trailer for the flick, which features Hardy as Spider-Man villain, Venom.

What’s odd is that this trailer doesn’t really feature Venom at all. It has action shots, things exploding, and people running all over the place, but it does not show Venom.

I mean, really…this is just your standard action-movie trailer. There isn’t anything special about it, and maybe Sony is doing this on purpose to not spoil anything, but it is possible to release a great, spoiler-free trailer as well. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

Venom is set to hit theaters across the nation on October 5, 2018, so there is still plenty of time for Sony to release a better trailer.

The Great Leonardo DiCaprio Explains Why He Decided To Pass On The Chance To Be In Star Wars Prequels


Will Leonardo DiCaprio finally get that Oscar for his performance in The Revenant? No one knows, but you can bet we will bring it up every single time we write a story about him. HE DESERVES ONE!!!

Tell him Mr. Weeknd…

Anyway, an old interview Leo did with ShortList magazine is getting a lot of attention this week. In the interview, the actor admitted he passed on the chance to play young Anakin Skywalker in two of the three Star Wars prequels.

Why would he do such a thing? Because he wasn’t ready.

I did have a meeting with George Lucas about that, yes. [I] just didn’t feel ready to take that dive. At that point.

It seems like Leo wasn’t ready for several huge roles 10-15 years ago. As some of you may remember, he was also up for the role of Peter Parker in 2002’s Spider-Man.

“Er, that was another one of those situations, similar to Robin, where I didn’t feel ready to put on that suit yet. They got in touch with me.”

You have to believe he’s not being completely honest here. He is one of the best actors in the business. Deep down, he probably feels ready for any role out there. Maybe he just felt like these roles weren’t challenging him as an actor.

Why do we believe that? Well, because when he was asked if he would ever play a superhero one day, he gave this interesting response…

“You never know. You never know. They’re getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven’t yet. But no, I don’t rule out anything.”

Marvel’s New ‘Spider-Man’ Film Will Be Inspired By John Hughes, Get The Exciting Details Inside!

Marvel has some exciting plans for their new Spider-Man film starring Tom Holland. Marvel head Kevin Feige spoke with Birth Movies Death recently and explained that the upcoming solo Spidey film will have a John Hughes vibe.

“It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting. Just as we hadn’t seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven’t seen a John Hughes movie in a long time. Not that we can make a John Hughes movie – only John Hughes could – but we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us.”

For those who don’t know, John Hughes was the master of the “coming of age” genre. Just take a look at his IMDb page and you will see that he probably directed or wrote one of your favorite films.

The idea of putting some John Hughes flavor inside Marvel’s Spider-Man makes sense. Throughout Spider-Man’s history, the action has always been an added bonus to the drama behind the Peter Parker character. This doesn’t work for most superhero films, but with the Spider-Man franchise it’s almost a necessity.

This news shouldn’t be too surprising. As most of you know, Feige already confirmed he wanted to explore Peter Parker’s time in high school…

“[S]ome of my favorite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he’s in high school for a lot of it. We want to explore that. That also makes him very, very different from any of our other characters in the MCU, which is something else we want to explore: how unique he is when now put against all these other characters.”

The film is scheduled to hit theaters July 28, 2017.

Spider-Man Casting News: Marvel’s Peter Parker Will Be Played By Tom Holland!

We heard recently that Marvel was trying to decide between English actors Tom Holland and Charlie Rowe. Who would be the new Peter Parker? Who could handle the pressure?

Marvel and Sony Pictures believe 19-year-old Tom Holland is the right man for the job. And while it’s exciting to finally have confirmation, it’s not exactly a shocking announcement. Most people knew they were going to hire Holland. He’s the youngest Peter Parker actor to date.

There was some news that did surprise Marvel fans. It was announced yesterday that Jon Watts will direct the solo Spider-Man film. This surprised many fans, but it actually fits right in with Marvel’s recent behavior. Just look at the success James Gunn had with Guardians of the Galaxy.

Watts is currently celebrating after the successful Sundance debut of his latest film, Cop Car. The film has been receiving mostly positive reviews. You can check out the trailer at the bottom of this page. It looks incredible.

Marvel Studios president of production, Kevin Feige, said this about the hiring…

“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.”

What do you think? Check out Jon’s most recent work in the Cop Car trailer below…


New ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Poster Shows Off More Marvel Heroes


At first glance, the Ultron robots steal the show in the new poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron. But if you look closely at the official credits down at the bottom, you will notice Anthony Mackie listed, which means Falcon will be making an appearance in the film.

We knew his appearance was likely; however, it feels nice to finally have confirmation. You can also see that Hayley Atwell appears next to Mackie’s name, confirming Peggy Carter will also star in the movie.

Another interesting name in the credits? Composer Danny Elfman. We already know Brian Tyler will be composing on the film, but Elfman’s name being added is raising a few eyebrows. Elfman composed the music for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

It’s possible Marvel was able to get approval from Sony to introduce Spider-Man with a cameo or maybe a special scene during the credits after the movie. We know production was pretty much finished when the Spider-Man takeover was announced; however, it’s possible they were able to film something at the last minute.

But that’s just wishful thinking. We’ll find out soon enough when The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters May 1, 2015.


Leonardo DiCaprio Came THIS CLOSE To Starring In These 10 Well-Known Films


Leonardo DiCaprio has had an extremely interesting/successful career. Starring in fantastic films like: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Inception, Titanic, Django Unchained, The Wolf of Wall Street, Shutter Island, The Departed, and the list goes on and on. Even with that impressive resume, the 40-year-old actor still has not received an Oscar.

But what if he had starred in one of the movies down below? Did he pass up an Oscar-worthy performance? Check out the list to see for yourself.



No. 10 – Angels & Demons (2009)

The Role: Camerlengo Patrick McKenna

Actor Who Got The Role: Ewan McGregor

Interesting Note: Leonardo declined the role even though Tom Hanks personally offered it to him.



No. 9 – Jobs (2013)

The Role: Steve Jobs

Actor Who Got The Role: Ashton Kutcher

Interesting Note: The film sucked.



No. 8 – Boogie Nights (1997)

The Role: Dirk Diggler

Actor Who Got The Role: Mark Wahlberg

Interesting Note: Leonardo DiCaprio claims turning down the role is one of his biggest regrets, saying, “I’m a huge fan of (director) Paul Thomas Anderson but the first time I met him for that role I hadn’t really seen much of his previous work. Now I love that movie.”


No. 7 – Interview with the Vampire (1994)

The Role: Daniel Malloy

Actor Who Got The Role: Christian Slater

Interesting Note: River Phoenix was supposed to star in the film; however, he passed away before filming. Leonardo was offered the role, but decided to decline. Phoenix was also set to star in ‘Total Eclipse‘. Oddly enough, Leo did decide to take on that role.



No. 6 – Inglourious Basterds (2009)

The Role: Col. Hans Landa

Actor Who Got The Role: Christoph Waltz

Interesting Note: Tarantino originally wanted Mr. DiCaprio to play the part, but then decided he wanted the character to be played by an older actor. Adam Sandler was also asked to be in the film, but he declined to give all his attention to his film, Funny People.




No. 5 – Spider-Man (2002)

The Role: Spider-Man/Peter Parker

Actor Who Got The Role: Tobey Maguire

Interesting Note: The production company wanted him, but Leo just didn’t feel like he was ready to put on the suit. It all worked out, though. Tobey and Leo have been best friends for over 20 years, so we’re sure the Oscar-less actor was happy for his friend.



No. 4 – Batman Forever (1995)

The Role: Robin/Dick Grayson

Actor Who Got The Role: Chris O’Donnell

Interesting Note: Many sites claim Leonardo actually screen tested for the role, but that’s not true. During an interview with ShortList, Leo admitted to having one meeting with the director, Joel Schumacher, but he declined the offer after the meeting. It was definitely a smart move.



No. 3 – American Psycho (2000)

The Role: Patrick Bateman

Actor Who Got The Role: Christian Bale

Interesting Note: There was a lot of drama behind this film. Bale originally had the part, but then Leonardo (fresh off that Titanic high) came in and announced his interest. And since he had a huge following, Lions Gate dumped Bale for DiCaprio. The actor later dropped out of the role after several people announced their displeasure with his casting, claiming his fan base mostly consisted of teenage girls.



No. 2 – Cold Mountain (2003)

The Role: Inman

Actor Who Got The Role: Jude Law

Interesting Note: Mr. Law actually received an Oscar nomination for best actor for his role in the movie. Can you imagine if he had won? That would have been a huge slap to Leo’s face.



No. 1 – The Matrix (1999)

The Role: Neo

Actor Who Got The Role: Keanu Reeves

Interesting Note: Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Leonardo DiCaprio were all considered for the role before filmmakers decided Keanu Reeves was their man.

Interesting Note x2: Keanu Reeves is a vampire…
