Mary Jane Watson may have played a central role in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but she won't show-up in the rebooted version until 2016.
Yes, there were set photos of "The Descendants" star Shailene Woodley floating around from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," but those scenes have either been axed or will be saved for the third movie, "Superman: The Movie"/"Back to the Future"/"Kill Bill"/"The Lord of the Rings" style.
According to a new interview in Entertainment Weekly (which we became hip to thanks to Superhero Hype), Woodley understandably isn't super stoked about the news, but she gets the reasoning behind it. Get More »
In all of the hubbub leading up to this weekend's "Man of Steel," it's easy to forget for a moment that Marvel remains a few steps ahead of DC when it comes to rolling out properties.
John C. Reilly has thrown his country music-loving hat into the superhero ring, signing up for a role in the potential franchise starter "Guardians of the Galaxy," which is scheduled to hit theaters August 1, 2014. Get More »
Fanboys and fangirls around the world today will need to look for four-year planners to save some important dates, because according to Hit Fix, Marvel has just announced they will be releasing new superhero films on May 6, 2016 and May 5, 2017. Hurray!
Just one problem: Nobody has any idea what the movies are actually going to be.

Robert Downey Jr. isn't signed up for any more sequels, but his director definitely wants him back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2."
Last month, Downey, his producing partner/wife Susan Downey, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Disney Studios boss Alan Horn and "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black sat down to lunch to celebrate their latest box-office bonanza, but also ostensibly to talk about Downey's deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If you had to pick one Hollywood star to defend our universe against the tyranny of evil, you could do a whole heck of a lot worse than Glenn Close. After all, with her steely stare and forceful personality, the six-time Oscar nominee is a force to be reckoned with. You want her on that wall. You need her on that wall!
Paul Giamatti spent part of the Memorial Day holiday weekend stalking New York's streets as The Rhino, the comic villain who makes his screen debut in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
Previously, we'd seen a bit of what Jaimie Foxx will look like as Electro as well as set pics of Giamatti in character as Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich. But these photos, from a scene director Marc Webb called "Park Ave Showdown" on Twitter, are a step closer to what the finished costume will be all about onscreen. The Yale University grad and Oscar nominated actor from "Sideways" and "American Splendor" will get his thug on as the notoriously dim-witted villain created by Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr. Get More »
We are all a product of our parents, to a degree. Just look at Lindsay Lohan. No matter where your life takes you, there's always going to be a little bit of your mom and dad in everything you do. Like, say, if your dad is a superhero nerd and chooses to impart all of his knowledge onto your sponge-like brain at four years-old.
Above is the by-product of when this happens, in the form of a five-minute video of an adorable little girl rattling off Marvel trivia like it's not even a thing. At the beginning, you can't help but say "awww!," but as you keep watching, those "awwws" quickly turn to "awe" as she apparently knows the family lineage/history of everyone that's ever been in a Marvel movie or comic book.

For the past decade or so, critics and fans have put forth the theory that we are living in a new Golden Age of Television thanks to acclaimed shows like "The Sopranos," "The Wire," "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men." But if that's the case, then it looks like we just got upgraded to the Diamond Age, because ABC has officially picked up the coolest TV show ever conceived, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
And thanks to YouTube, we've got the first promo spot right here.

With "Iron Man 3" dominating not just the box office but pop culture in general, Marvel is pretty busy these days. Their Phase 2 is rolling out as planned, with "Thor: The Dark World" hitting theaters later this month and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Guardians of the Galaxy" both following close behind. In fact, things are going so well that the only major issue they're facing is how to find the time to put out even more movies.
What is it with British people and their superhero shenanigans?
Quick. Someone get that Batman dude on the tele 'cause there's a violent She-Hulk on the loose! Yep, apparently we wouldn't like this costumed criminalette when she's angry... or any other time for that matter.
The York Press reports that a woman dressed up as the Incredible Hulk — meaning, she was covered in green skin paint and wearing shredded shirt — is the prime suspect in a recent York, England battery incident against a seventeen-year-old at a local McDonald's restaurant. Get More »
