Marvel reveals an important upgrade for our favourite neighbourhood arachnid

Marvel has just released a short video expressing a couple of new features Spidey has to play with, come July. Although there are a few upgrades mentioned in the video, there’s only one of note that we weren’t already aware of, in relation to the web shooters. That upgrade being, “Selectable web types.”

Just what those webs are, we’ll have to wait and see. However, a thought just occurred to me. How would you guys feel about trick webbing?

Kind of like Hawkeye’s trick arrows, but you know…stickier. Maybe there could be an electrified web, maybe a solid rubber bullet-esque projectile, that kind of thing. It’s probably not going to happen, but it’d be a bit of fun.

I always cut the Sam Rami Spider-Man movies a little bit of slack on the topic of webbing variation. Since Maguire’s webs were organic, I guess he could produce whatever type of web he need in the moment. Nevertheless, I’m glad that we’re get a logical and tangible explanation of Peter’s ability for Homecoming.

What do you guys think about Spidey’s upgrades, and how do you feel about a trick webbing proposal?

Great look at the Batffleck suit in Batman v Superman teaser trailer teaser

Batman-V-Superman-Dawn-of-Justice-Header1

Zack Snyder tweeted the first 20 seconds of the Batman v Superman teaser. Well that was 15 seconds more than I was expecting, what a nice surprise.

There really isn’t much to this teaser for the teaser, and reusing the same shot of the Superman suit from man of steel is kind of a cop out. However, we do get an awesome look at the Bat suit sitting in a compartment that looks somewhat similar to the one Sup’s is in.

This is probably a suit storage compartment Wayne has in his mansion or something along those lines. Wouldn’t it be cool if we’re actually seeing some kind of Justice League suit room from the end of the movie or something, probably not the case but it’d be pretty good.

The full teaser will be having a bunch of IMAX screenings on the 20th in various states in America, and with the run time set to be 2 minutes and 6 seconds it should give us plenty more to get hyped about. If this teaser is even close to being on par with the Man of Steel ones, I’ll be very pleased.

Now if someone could just buy me a ticket to these exclusive screenings of the trailer in IMAX (and for a flight to the states) that’d be great…

Although, the teaser will probably go up online a few hours (or days at most) after the screenings. So…maybe don’t do that.

[Editorial] Why The Thing rocking his birthday suit is weird

Fantastic-Four-Movie-Reboot-Team-2015

So one of the most unusual aspects of the Fant4stic trailer that a bunch of people picked up on, was the fact that The Thing was missing his classic pants. And that, you know, he was missing clothes altogether.

The strange thing about this is that the cosmic rays he’s exposed to (or however the team will get their powers in this movie) doesn’t alter the fact that he is a human being. Rather it, using comic book logic, forces his bone structure, internal organs, and skin to increase in density and strength with this rock-like substance. Being a humanoid “Thing” he should still have all the same male features that he did before becoming The Thing.

And I mean sure, it looks like they’re going with a very different take on the transformation of the character. From the cacoon-like structure we see The Thing breaking out of in the trailer, and the banner we first saw about a week ago, it seems like there’s more of an emphasis on the fact that Ben Grimm’s transformation is more of a deformity. Perhaps a part of this deformation includes him having more Ken doll-like properties, if you know what I mean.

Either way, you’d think out of decency he would cover up.

Miles Teller has come out and told Screen Crush that we’ll be seeing the classic suits in the movie, so hopefully that will include Ben getting some shorts. Or maybe even that sweet one piece tank top suit he has from the Ultimates comic arc (which this movie is supposable taking inspiration from).

Man I hope not.

Overall I’m looking forward to this rendition of the Character. How about you? Are you on board with this version of The Thing, or is it a bit too weird for you?
