In #Trending, Sam will highlight and offer his opinions on any comic-related news that occurred during the week. This will included news about comic books, comic-related movies, TV shows, video games, etc. including sharing any hot trailers that were released. Let’s begin:
“In terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually cast, I don’t know,” Feige admits. “In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right. Some 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.”
He has also responded to the question all the fans are wondering. Will we have to sit through another origin story? No!
“There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU,” says Feige. “You just don’t know it yet… In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics.”
The announcement of Spidey’s casting is yet to come, however he has revealed that the costume is already done.
“We’ve already designed the costume,” Feige teases, “which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.”
This week has seen quite a few peeks on the set of Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds has been tweeting out constantly, even revealing a look at Negasonic Teenage Warhead. (Yeah, I had to Google that one as well). Ed Skrein has also been confirmed to play Ajax.
1) The Final Trailer: Marvel released the final international trailer this week, ending the barrage of teases and TV spots.
Only weeks from the Age of Ultron release now, have you booked tickets? We also get another look at Paul Bettany’s Vision in his own character poster.
Looking ahead, Joe and Anthony Russo will be directing Avengers: Infinity War.
3) Wan for Aquaman: Following the success of his latest film, Furious 7, director James Wan is now said to be in talks to direct the upcoming Aquaman solo film.
5) Cooper to lead Preacher: Dominic Cooper is said to be nearly confirmed to play the anti-hero Jesse Custer in AMC’s TV adaptation of Preacher. Lucy Griffiths is also said to be on board.
And that concludes this week’s edition of #Trending. Thoughts on any subjects discussed? Anything else worth mentioning? Comment below!
