A middle-aged Peter Parker confirmed for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Last week, Sony released the first trailer for its animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is set to mark the big screen debut of Miles Morales.

However, as we saw at the end of the trailer (and as anyone familiar with the Spider-Verse storyline will know), Miles won’t be the only web-slinger to feature in the movie.

According to Collider, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have confirmed that Peter Parker does feature in the film and will serve as a middle-aged mentor passing on the baton to Miles as the new Spider-Man.

You may have caught a brief glimpse of Peter in the trailer, as well as a headstone which suggests that Peter Parker is believed to be dead (suggesting the middle-aged mentor Parker could be from another universe):

Feeling the force: why directing a Hollywood blockbuster is tougher than ever

As the big-money Hollywood franchises tighten their stranglehold, directors seem more and more disposable. The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson explains how he deals with the pressure

It was hardly short of work, but “creative differences” must have become the most overused phrase in Hollywood. It was trotted out earlier this year when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller departed the Han Solo spin-off, and when Colin Trevorrow was jettisoned from Star Wars: Episode IX. Ditto when Edgar Wright left Marvel’s Ant-Man in 2014, while there was a tart whiff of you-know-what about the reshoots on Gareth Edwards’s Rogue One.

Then there have been high-profile conflicts during production, as with Josh Trank on Fantastic Four, and last-minute balks such as Warner’s decision not to let Ben Affleck direct as well as be The Batman. It’s hard not to conclude that, in the blockbuster world, directors – far from

Second Opinion – Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017

Written and Directed by Rian Johnson.

Starring Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, Benicio del Toro, Billie Lourd, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Jimmy Vee, Tim Rose, Warwick Davis, Hermione Corfield and Veronica Ngo.

Synopsis:

Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

One of the big complaints about Star Wars: The Force Awakens was that it felt like an old band having one last run with a new singer (say, Queen for example). They played the old hits, the stuck to the same chord structures and they didn’t try anything too new in case people just wanted to hear the favourites again.

Watch: Next Spider-Man Film Features Afro-Latino Web-Slinger Miles Morales

Watch: Next Spider-Man Film Features Afro-Latino Web-Slinger Miles Morales
When Spider-Man: Homecoming was released in July, the star-studded film was praised for its cast’s diversity. With its 2018 animated installment, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the franchise continues to break ground by bringing to the screen Marvel Comics’s first Afro-Latino web-slinger, Miles Morales.

In a trailer for the forthcoming movie, slated to premiere in December 2018, Morales, a teenager of African-American and Puerto Rican descent, is seen visiting what seems to be the grave of the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker, and practicing his swinging skills across New York City skyscrapers. But, in a twist, more than one Spider-Man shares the screen.

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
Spoiler Alert: The following review contains mild spoilers for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Surely, all “Star Wars” fans hope each new installment will be the best ever. But in the case of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” that seemed like an actual possibility. Written and directed by Rian Johnson, a Sundance alum who established his serious-filmmaker bona fides with his 2005 indie debut, “Brick,” before graduating to young Christopher Nolan territory via the relatively big-budget sci-fi movie “Looper,” Episode VIII seemed to have everything going for it.

To the extent that “The Force Awakens” was essentially a heightened reboot of “A New Hope,” recycling many of the 1977 original’s thrills in fresh form with a mostly new cast, this latest chapter was positioned as the new trilogy’s “The Empire Strikes Back” — which is to say, a darker, more serious chapter (commonly regarded as the series’ best) that deepens the underlying mythology, shapes its emerging

Spider-Man: first trailer for new big screen animated movie

Simon Brew Dec 11, 2017

Miles Morales heads to the big screen in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Here's the first trailer...

Arriving in cinemas in December 2018 is a brand new Spider-Man film – and one that’s taking a different turn to the main line of Marvel movies.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is a full animated movie, that’s going to see Spider-Man in the guise of Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker. The movie is being overseen by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (and they’ve co-written the script), with Bob Perischetti and Peter Ramsey directing.

Shameik Moore leads the voice cast as Miles Morales/Spider-Man.

A first trailer for the movie has now been released too, to give a flavour of what’s in store. And it looks like this…

Boba Fett Movie Back in Development, Working Title Tin Can

With production setting up for the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie gearing up, the Boba Fett movie is in active development according to a new report and the project has the working title of Tin Can. It was revealed late in the summer that Lucasfilm was working on the Boba Fett movie along with the Yoda standalone, but it has been pretty quiet ever since then, more than likely due to the release of The Last Jedi as well as some of the drama surrounding Solo: A Star Wars Story. In addition, the Obi-Wan standalone movie was also announced, which seems to have overshadowed the development of the Boba Fett movie.

A new report has revealed that Boba Fett is in active development and that it has the working title of Tin Can. No production date has been listed, but the movie will film in part at Pinewood Studios in England where

Kick Ass First Trailer for Animated 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse'

Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask. Sony Pictures recently unveiled an awesome first teaser trailer for the animated Spider-Man movie, which is now officially titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Yes, this is the one that is being developed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, who wrote the script and are producing as well. And yes, this is also the Spider-Man movie that features Miles Morales, the black kid for Brooklyn, and he seems pretty damn cool. The only problem is the wait to watch this - one full year from now.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Trailer Unveils Animated Miles Morales

Sony has unveiled a brief teaser trailer of its upcoming animated movie “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with a first look at the teenage Miles Morales.

The 80-second trailer opens with a hooded figure moving through the snow of New York City, visiting the grave of Peter Parker, then swinging awkwardly through skyscrapers with the tagline “More than one wears the mask.” When Spider-Man lands on a rooftop, he pulls off his mask to show that he is Miles Morales — and out of breath — then allows himself a brief laugh.

Miles Morales was introduced in 2011 in Chapter 4 of the “Ultimate Fallout” Marvel comic book series, which dealt with the aftermath of the death of Peter Parker. The teaser ends with Miles Morales in a subway station asking another figure “Wait, so how many of us are there?”

Animated Spider-Man Movie Trailer Brings Miles Morales Into the Spider-Verse

Animated Spider-Man Movie Trailer Brings Miles Morales Into the Spider-Verse
Christopher Miller and Phil Lord have finally given us the title for their upcoming Spider-Man Animated Movie. It is officially called Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is exciting and quite the mouthful. Along with the title, it had also been rumored that the trailer will drop sometime this weekend, and we now have it. It was announced that the animated movie would exist independently from the cinematic universe, offering a completely new take on Spider-Man that has yet to be seen, which is where the Spider-Verse comes into play. Into the Spider-Verse won't be telling the tale of Peter Parker, but instead the story of Miles Morales. Though, it looks like Peter Parker is here, too, in animated form.

It had been rumored before Spider-Man: Homecoming that Sony was toying with the idea of using Miles Morales in the movie instead of Tom Holland's Peter Parker, but the
