Will Tobey Maguire be in Spider Man?

when he makes pronouncements about his new film, it's hard to take it completely at face value. Choose your path, then, when he tells Esquire that former Spider-suit-fillers Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will not be appearing in the third MCU Spider-Man movie. EmpireTom Holland Says Tobey Maguire And Andrew Garfield Are Not In The Third MCU Spider-Man Movie

Marvel actor J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) casually dropped Tobey Maguire’s name in a recent interview about Spider-Man: No Way Home, possibly confirming the return of both Maguire and Andrew Garfield to the Marvel Universe.

Spoilers are the hardest things to avoid in Marvel movies, and even actors fall into the traps. Spider-Man actor Tom Holland infamously spoiled numerous Marvel storylines in the past — so much so that it’s become a running joke in recent No Way Home marketing stints.

Nonetheless, it’s nearly impossible to keep a tight lid on a film, especially when it’s related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For months, every Marvel fan has been speculating that previous Peter Parker/Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and one actor from the movie may have just spoiled it.

In the video above, J.B. Smoove from Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) seemingly confirmed Tobey Maguire’s appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Last week, actor J.B. Smoove — who plays teacher Mr. Dell in Holland’s Spidey franchise — was asked during a red carpet event which Spider-Man actor Smoove was excited to see share the screen with Tom Holland.

Casually responding to this, Smoove said:

Tobey Maguire is, of course, the first live-action Spider-Man in director Sam Raimi’s critically acclaimed Spider-Man trilogy — featuring everyone from Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin to Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus (both of which are appearing in No Way Home).

With numerous plot leaks and set photos shared on social media, fans believe that the three Spider-Man characters are crossing over into one multiverse in the upcoming Marvel movie.

It’s easy for actors to forget what they can and cannot tell the media and general public about their film involvements, but it’s entirely different when it comes to letting a massive plotline leak.

In recent weeks, Marvel has been on red alert after the No Way Home trailer was mysteriously leaked a day before its official release on the internet.

As a result, No Way Home became trending on every social media platform and shattered trailer viewing records previously held by Avengers: Endgame (2019)

In the official trailer for No Way Home, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock appearance shook the internet. Countless fans began reposting the clip in which Molina says, “Hello, Peter,” but he definitely wasn’t saying hello to Holland’s Peter Parker.

Looking at the trailer, the clever editing of scenes makes it appear that Doctor Octopus suddenly appears on the freeway and attacks Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.

However, in reality, he is most likely talking to Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man.

Marvel’s New York is set to feature the Sinister Six, which is comprised of Electro (Jaime Foxx), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Lizard (Rhys Ifans), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), Vulture (Michael Keaton), and Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina).

The supergroup of iconic characters comes from three Spider-Man franchises, making it entirely possible for Maguire and Garfield to jump into the MCU.

In fact, inevitably, all three Spider-Men won’t share the same screen in No Way Home after seeing Sandman defend Peter Parker from Electro’s blast in the trailer — confirming story continuity from Spider-Man 3 (2007).

Without the help of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, like Captain America, Black Panther, Iron Man, or even Captain Marvel, Peter turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Spider-Man and Doctor Strange accidentally open a rift in the Multiverse when a spell goes wrong in the Sanctum Sanctorum, unleashing a deadly batch of supervillains, like Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus from previous Spider-Man franchises.

Much like Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), No Way Home will juggle an ensemble cast of heroes and villains while furthering the Marvel Cinematic Universe like never before.

The Marvel collection is growing with each new superhero film and series on Disney+. Marvel films are expanding after the events of Loki, and Marvel characters are being introduced to variants of each character.

'No Way Home' could be the best Spider-Man story ever for one epic reason

Inverse 03 September, 2021 - 04:30am

When Peter Parker and Stephen Strange team up, anything can happen.

Now that we finally have our first look at the much-anticipated (to put it mildly) Spider-Man: No Way Home, we can start piecing elements of the story together with a bit more ease. Plenty of mysteries remain in what’s shaping up to be the most epic Spider-Man event in arguably any medium, but we can dispatch some of the old rumors (there’s no way the Savage Land gets introduced, right?) and of course, devise new ones (Does Peter get astral projected into the bodies of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men?).

There’s magic in the air, folks!

With Spider-Man’s identity revealed by Mysterio in the finale of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to help restore his secret identity. Of course, things don’t go as expected, and with the Multiverse of Madness building across WandaVision, Loki, and What If...?, Peter Parker seemingly finds himself besieged by variants who might be new faces to him, but are familiar to longtime Spider-Man fans: Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), and maybe more.

Spidey’s reliance on magic isn’t an unfamiliar scenario, nor is his penchant for turning to Doctor Strange when his “Parker luck” gets the better of him. In fact, Peter’s history with Doctor Strange and magic may provide some indication of just how messy his life is about to become.

Strange’s ability to alter memory would come back more than 40 years later during the infamous comic book story One More Day. While the events of this encounter aren’t referenced, one can’t help but wonder if that planted the seed in Peter’s head for the deal that was to come.

We’ll get to that, but first…

Spider-Man and Doctor Strange teamed up several more times during the ‘70s and ‘80s in the pages of Marvel Team-Up. Issues #21, #50, #76, #80, and Annual #5 all saw the web-slinger and Sorcerer Supreme join forces, often to stop some magical menace or recover some mystic artifact, be it a wand, orb, or thing-a-ma-jig. In #80, Spider-Man actually joins forces with Strange’s witchy girlfriend, Clea, to stop a demonically possessed Strange.

So, for those theorizing that the Strange we see in the trailer who casts the spell for Peter is actually Mephisto or a possessed Strange, well there’s a precedent for it. Though I don’t necessarily buy it, given Strange has a long history of being one of the more morally dubious Marvel heroes.

As for Annual #5, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange join forces with the Scarlet Witch, among others, to stop the demon, Set, who has invaded Earth from another dimension. While there’s no word of whether Parker will play a role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, this issue showcases a dynamic between the three heroes that would certainly be enticing to see onscreen. (And Wanda is already confirmed for the Doctor Strange sequel.)

Spider-Man and Doctor Strange’s journey came full circle with the one-shot graphic novel, Spider-Man/Dr. Strange: The Way to Dusty Death by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway. The graphic novel sees the two heroes once again facing off against Xandu.

Spider-Man finds himself in the Death Dimension, providing a chance encounter with the spirits of Uncle Ben and Gwen Stacey. When he’s brought back to Earth, he finds himself in Xandu’s body, before Strange returns their souls to their respective bodies.

This story makes the idea that Peter astral projects into variant versions of Peter Parker even more likely and may explain why in the trailer Holland’s Parker is wearing the exact same suit Maguire’s Parker wears in Spider-Man 3. Perhaps only when Strange places Peter’s spirit back in the right body will we see all three Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland, together. As for the Death Dimension, will we finally meet the MCU’s Uncle Ben?

I’ll be upfront, One More Day (2007) isn’t a good Spider-Man story, but it is one of the most influential ones ever told. And if the trailer for No Way Home is any indication, a loose adaptation of the story would do wonders for the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In this story by J. Michael Straczynski and artist Joe Quesada, Peter asks Doctor Strange for help after Aunt May is nearly murdered by the Kingpin. It’s unlikely that she’ll live, and so Peter asks the Sorcerer Supreme to restore her life. Strange tells him that resurrecting the dead (or soon-to-be-dead) are powers beyond even him. Peter, in his desperation, attempts to cast a spell on his own. As a result, Peter severely injures himself. After Strange heals him, Peter turns to Mephisto and makes a bargain to trade his marriage to Mary Jane to bring Aunt May back to full health. It’s a dumb choice, but that’s only part of the story.

In 2010, this story was followed up with One Moment in Time, by Joe Quesada, in which it was revealed that the reason why everyone seemingly forgot Peter Parker was Spider-Man after he revealed it during the events of Civil War was because Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, and Reed Richards, devised a plan to mindwipe everyone’s memory of his secret identity, including Aunt May’s and MJ’s. It’s a complicated bit of comic book retconning that looks to be handled in a far more interesting way in No Way Home — and unleash some dire consequences.

It’s likely that elements from Spider-Man and Doctor Strange’s various encounters will play a role in No Way Home, but the bones of the story seem to be most directly inspired by One Moment in Time. If that’s the case, will the following MCU adventure of Spider-Man begin with no one knowing his identity? Or will there be some last-minute spell that allows Peter Parker to get his secret identity back and keep his most treasured relationships intact?

This is Peter Parker we’re talking about, so it’s not likely. But every time Spider-Man has had a major interaction with Doctor Strange it’s left him changed on a physical, mental, emotional, and dimensional level. We expect nothing less by the end of No Way Home. The devil may be in the details, but Spidey and Strange are capable of upending all they hold sacred entirely by themselves.

The former Bachelor lead promised that if the Instagram crypto account @BlockFi received 50,000 followers, he would shave his beard, which he grew following his season of the ABC dating competition. Well, Matt is a man of his word. The New Yorker shared an Instagram Story, reposting an Instagram video from Seeds of Success Therapy Group, which showed him with a freshly shaved face. "A promise is a promise," his Instagram Story read.

Fans celebrated the new look in the comments section. The star had previously pulled an April Fool's Day prank earlier this year, pretending that he had shaved his beard already. This time, though, he's completely serious—while still having fun with it, of course.

Matt told PopCulture that the whole process took three hours to complete. "I've never had something so polarizing on me even when I had dreads," the 29-year-old reality star confessed.

And it was all for a good cause: He teamed up with Lettuce Grow for the video reveal, which showed people that growing your own food can be easy.

In addition to partnering up with BlockFi, Matt has also had another important partnership in his life since The Bachelor. While on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose in March, Matt explained that after he and final show pick Rachael Kirkconnell broke up over her resurfaced social media posts, the couple had quietly gotten back together in subsequent months.

They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the ESPYs in July, and Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss shared an article that claimed the duo had "come out of hiding." The couple replied through Matt's Twitter, posting a selfie and saying, "Ain't nobody hiding!"

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Skipping DLC Is Good News For Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

GameRant 03 September, 2021 - 04:30am

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

IT was speculated whether Matt James will join Kenya Moore and Amanda Kloots on Dancing with the Stars season 30.

The new season of the dancing fan-favorite show will air September 20.

It was announced on September 1 by Us Weekly that Bachelor star Matt James is set to appear on Dancing With the Stars.

The athlete is one of many Bachelor Nation stars to compete on the competition show. Trista Sutter, Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe, Chris Soules, Nick Viall, Joe Amabile, Hannah Brown and Kaitlyn Bristowe all appeared on DWTS over the years.

Since James' season ended in March 2021, he has been working on his relationship with final rose recipient Rachael Kirkconnell and working for the CBRE Group, a commercial real estate company in NYC.

During season 25, Kirkconnell came under fire after past racist actions surfaced, including her attendance at a Antebellum-themed fraternity formal while in college.

During The Bachelor's After the Final Rose special, James said that they couldn't "be in a relationship" because Kirkconnell had to "put in that work to understand how her past behavior was wrong.

Following their public breakup, the couple reconnected and started pursuing a relationship again.

At the 2021 ESPY Awards on Saturday July 10, 2021, the couple told PEOPLE correspondent Sandra Vergara about the obstacles they've worked through since deciding to pursue a relationship.

"I will say that, you know, of course it was difficult in the moment, but just being able to step back and work on our relationship to assess," Kirkconnell said.

"Taking a moment away from the spotlight's been really good for us. It's been a lot better."

James added in, "I'm following the lead of everybody else."

"You know, I think that I look to people who have been where I'm trying to get to. Rachael's parents have been in a relationship for a long time. They've been married for probably about as long as I've been alive, so you know, relationships that are prospering are what I kind of fix my eyes on and hope to emulate."

As of March 2021, James' net worth is an estimated $250,000.

James reportedly made $100,000 from his time on The Bachelor and the rest of his net worth comes from his jobs with CBRE Group and ABC Food Tours.

Jojo Siwa is making history after being named as one of the 15 stars joining the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.

The bubbly 18-year-old YouTube personality along with 18-year-old Olympic gymnast Suni Lee were named as two of the contenders vying for the mirrorball.

The other 13 stars competing in the dance competition will be revealed on Good Morning America, with Jojo and Suni as guests, on September 8, TV Line reports.

All the Spider-Man movies ranked, from Hell Yes to Hell No

CNET 02 September, 2021 - 08:52pm

The record-breaking Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer finally revealed some of what we can expect from the much-anticipated third Tom Holland Spider-Man movie this Christmas. 

And it turns out what we can expect is a host of Spider-Man villains taking their first steps into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Villains such as Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro and maybe, just maybe, three others to round out the let's-kill-Spider-Man club known as the Sinister Six.

With all that weird intrigue in the mix, you might be enticed to go back and rewatch some of the older Spider-Man movies from which these villains originated. Movies that feature Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's iterations of the friendly neighbourhood web-slinger. Also, who knows, we may see those guys swinging into the MCU thanks to its current obsession with the multiverse.

What better way to start a rewatch than by dipping into the very best of Sony's Spider-Man Universe? Chase that with the best of Holland's excellent Marvel Studios co-produced additions.

Here are all the Sony-Marvel Spider-Man movies ranked, from best to worst.

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

Into the Spider-Verse is so good, we have two entries on the point.

Into the Spider-Verse isn't just the best Spider-Man movie ever made, it's the best superhero movie ever made, period. 

The rapid fire pace, the visual flourishes, the razor-tight script, the pitch perfect characterization. Into The Spider-Verse sidesteps tropes and creates a world so dense with details it rewards multiple, multiple viewings. It's as unforgettable on its tenth viewing as it was on the first. A perfect movie.

Mark Serrels is absolutely right. That being said, Into the Spider-Verse is so much more than just the best superhero movie -- it's an animated feature that experiments with visual aesthetics, variable framerates and groundbreaking techniques to present us with something completely unlike any other piece of feature animation on the market. This Spider-Man is saving us from the mediocrity of another by-the-numbers animated film. 

It doesn't hurt that it's the only Spider-Man film brave enough to let Peter Parker grow up and move on, either. Miles Morales forever.

Pizza time. The second live-action Spidey adventure capitalizes on the momentum built up in the first movie and sends Peter Parker on an incredible journey that riffs on the classic Spider-Man No More comic storyline beautifully.

It also boasts a killer villain in Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus. The surgery room scene is classic Sam Raimi and remains utterly chilling 17 years later. His battle with Spidey on the train is a visual joy too -- No Way Home better do this guy justice.

The tie-in video game was excellent too; it captured the joy of web-swinging around Manhattan to a degree that wasn't equaled until the 2018 PS4 game.

-- Sean Keane

It's hard to get excited about another reboot. But when Spider-Man Homecoming came along, bringing Spider-Man into the MCU, it was clear this one would be worth it. In bypassing the character's well-worn origin story, the franchise got a fresh feeling launch that better served Peter Parker's development and ensured a more solid foundation for the follow up. 

Peter, MJ, Ned and the rest of the crew made for believable high school students -- quirky and still new to the world. And as much as angst is built into Spider-Man's DNA along with those spidey-bits, Tom Holland delivered a lighter, almost irritatingly buoyant Peter Parker, like the energetic kid brother you can't help but love.

-- Erin Carson

As someone who is deathly afraid of spiders, I held out on watching this for the longest time, but despite some moments where the arachnophobia got its fangs into me, it's well worth the watch. From the overwhelmingly theatrical portrayal of Green Goblin through to some genuinely moving moments (Uncle Ben, I'm lookin' at you), the whole thing was a ride from start to finish. 

Sure, watching it back now has me cringing at some of the memes, but it's a genuinely great starting point with some impressive action and exactly the right amount of ridiculousness for a superhero movie. Sam Raimi balanced the silly with the serious -- something more modern superhero flicks should take inspiration from. It's not all solemn faces and punching! All in all, it's worth it just for the performances from JK Simmons and Willem Dafoe alone. 

I'm here to tell you that this movie's rap for being a fairly mediocre film is -- well, it's only somewhat fair.

The fittingly named Marc Webb, who directed (500) Days of Summer, made the whole first third of this movie feel like a small independent film. Peter goggling at Gwen from across the classroom. 'Til Kingdom Come, originally written by Coldplay to be performed with Johnny Cash, playing over the skateboard scene.

And then there's Peter's Spider-Man movements actually mirroring skateboarding moves, as well as being more spider-like than his counterparts. Andrew Garfield's stutter, jazz hands and general endearing weirdness. The surprisingly sexy bare chest scene.

Some parts of this movie rule. If only its comedy wasn't so cringe and forced. If only there weren't so many depressing deaths. Garfield is underrated and I hope he gets another chance via the multiverse in Marvel Studios' Spider-Man 3.

In a post-blip world, this Spider Man flick does a great job of returning to the core of what I love about the movies in general. The romance and awkwardness between Peter and MJ gives a really nostalgic feel to this one, even if the rest of the film is more flash than substance at times. 

The effects are impressive, the twist is fine and Jake Gyllenhaal is a charismatic addition to the franchise -- but what we care most about is Peter and his friends. Which is exactly what these films thrive on! Yes, he swings and has crazy spider skills, but he's also a high school kid with a crazy crush on his best friend. Seeing him deal with that as well as an element-controlling villain hellbent on destroying the world and the grief from the death of his mentor? That's what I'm here for.

All the work The Amazing Spider-Man did to set up Peter as a rough-around-the-edges Spider-Man who still had some figuring out to do in terms of his moral compass, came crashing in on itself in this sequel.

Peter became the most chatty and confident Spidey iteration, torn between dragging Gwen into his drama, rekindling friendships from when he was a barely conscious pre-teen (no wonder Harry was confused when Peter turned up at his door step) and exploding a poor man with electricity. Let's definitely not mention the increasingly awkward scenes with Aunt May.

As bloated and chaotic as Maguire's Spider-Man 3. It'll give you nightmares about the Green Goblin and not for the right reasons.

I watched Venom on a first date and promptly fell asleep halfway through. In the middle of a loud, crowded cinema. My apologies to fans of the toothy symbiote.
