Marvel Skipping Spider-Man’s Origin Story Was The Best Move In Homecoming

Marvel skipped Spider-Man’s origin in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming – and it was a smart move for the House of Ideas. Marvel has never been particularly keen on doing a rinse-and-repeat of stories and ideas that have already appeared on the big screen. That’s not been a problem with most of their characters – Robert Downey Jr. is the definitive Iron Man, after all – but with Spider-Man it was something of an issue.

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had drastically underperformed at the box office, and critical responses had forced Sony to (temporarily) shelve their plans to build a cinematic universe out of the Spider-Man franchise. That led Marvel and Sony to strike an unprecedented deal that brought the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel was clear that they wanted to relaunch the franchise once again, which meant letting Andrew Garfield go, but it meant the studio was launching the third cinematic version of Spider-Man since the year 2002.

Marvel went to great effort to differentiate their Spider-Man from either Andrew Garfield’s or Tobey Maguire’s. They cast Tom Holland as a young Peter Parker at high school, they stressed the dynamic between their new Spider-Man and the other heroes of the MCU, and they even chose to represent some of his powers slightly differently. But the most notable difference between this iteration of Spider-Man and the previous ones was the decision to avoid re-telling Spider-Man’s origin story.

  • Page 2: Spider-Man’s Origin Is A Smart Secret

Stop us if you’ve heard this before: a teenage boy gets bitten by a radioactive spider and develops incredible super-powers. At first he uses these powers for his own benefit, becoming a wrestler, and he becomes increasingly selfish. Then, in a tragic twist of fate, the teen’s uncle is shot by a criminal who he could have stopped earlier. He’s forced to learn a painful lesson; with great power must come great responsibility.

Everybody knows the broad strokes of Spider-Man’s origin. That’s the tale as told by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko all the way back in 1962; it’s been retold in countless popular animated shows, and it’s even been adapted twice for the big screen. One version was told in Spider-Man in 2002, and a revised one a decade later in The Amazing Spider-Man. The story beats have been absorbed into popular culture, in the same kind of way even a non-superhero fan tends to know Superman was sent from his dying homeworld of Krypton as a baby. Marvel always wants the MCU to feel fresh and original, and as a result they really didn’t want to repeat the same formula.

The MCU’s Spider-Man was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, and he’d already been operating as a superhero for several months. That single decision meant Marvel didn’t need to retread ground already explored; they could settle for just tossing in vague references, knowing that viewers would join the dots with ease. In one telling scene, Tony Stark asks this young Peter Parker why he dresses up as a superhero. “When you can do the things that I can, but you don’t,” Peter explained, “and then the bad things happen… They happen because of you.” While it clearly carried the sentiment of the famous “power and responsibility” speech, it was a very different way of putting it. In fact, where Uncle Ben’s ghost pretty much haunted the previous Spider-Men, the MCU’s Ben Parker will get his very first mention in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the fifth movie featuring Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. The trailers have already shown Peter traveling with his uncle’s suitcase, literally the first explicit nod to Ben Parker in the MCU to date.

Page 2 of 2: Spider-Man’s Origin Is A Smart Secret

But there’s another reason Marvel has chosen not to tell Spider-Man’s origin story again; it’s because they’re well aware people will think they know it, and as a result the studio can take audiences by surprise if they switch things up. As Kevin Feige explained in an interview with Cinema Blend:

“The truth is, we want audiences to bring their own… let them fill in those blanks right now. They’ve seen the other films. They’ve read comics. They can fill that in. That was a very purposeful decision we made to not retread that ground. There are little things that are said here and there that people can read into. What the specific facts are in the past, we don’t… we haven’t revealed yet.”

The significance of all this becomes clear when viewers stop to ask themselves a few key questions. Where did the radioactive spider come from? In the original comics, the spider happened to dangle in front of an experiment, and its body was suffused with mysterious energy. Dying, the spider fell towards the ground, and landed on Peter Parker’s outstretched hand. Reflexively, it bit, injecting its venom into his bloodstream, and thus creating Spider-Man. That’s the traditional origin, but it’s actually been reworked a number of times in the comics. One story arc suggested the spider was destined to bite Peter, transforming him into a mystic “Spider Totem.” It was always going to bite him, and the radiation was an accident that simply complicated things. In the Ultimate Comics version, a modernized retelling of the Marvel Universe, the spiders had been genetically engineered by Norman Osborn in order to create super-soldiers. One escaped, and bit Peter Parker when he was visiting OsCorp on a school trip. Between these three very different options, the comics allow Marvel Studios a lot of leeway. And they could even choose to do something completely fresh and new – should they ever wish to.

Another question: Did the spider bite only Peter, or did it go on to bite someone else as well before it died? During the “Original Sin” event in the comics, writer Dan Slott revealed that another of Peter’s classmates was also bitten by the spider. Cindy Moon was quickly ferried away by Ezekiel, a man who understood the power of the Spider Totems and who feared she would draw the attention of an interdimensional race known as the Inheritors. When Peter learned of Cindy’s existence, he broke her out, and she became the superhero Silk. Tiffany Espensen plays one of Peter’s classmates, Cindy, in the MCU – and she’s the spitting image of Silk. Cindy has yet to demonstrate any super-powers, but that could change in a future movie. Again, the fact Marvel hasn’t shown the spider-bite means the spider could easily have survived long enough to create more superhumans.

And are there any other spiders? If the MCU’s spider was an accident, then it’s unlikely to be repeated. If it was created, as in the Ultimate Universe, then the odds are good that there are other radioactive spiders out there. In the Ultimate Comics, another spider escaped OsCorp, and it eventually found its way to a teenager called Miles Morales. Miles became the Ultimate Spider-Man, one of Marvel’s most popular teen heroes, and the star of Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He’s already been confirmed to be part of the MCU, meaning the potential is there for him to be introduced as another superhero further down the line. It all depends on just what happened.

By concealing Spider-Man’s origin, Marvel ensured they had the maximum room to maneuver. They could effortlessly write OsCorp, Norman Osborn, and the Green Goblin into Spider-Man’s backstory, and nobody would bat an eye. They could set up superheroes like Silk and Miles Morales’ Spider-Man, and it would all feel natural and organic. It really was a smart move on Marvel’s part.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Teases A Way To Turn Humans Into Asgardians

Spider-Man: Homecoming may have subtly revealed how to turn humans into Asgardians in the MCU. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Asgardians were introduced as a powerful race of aliens who were worshiped by ancient humanity, and their powers are far beyond those of the mortals of Earth.

The Thor and Avengers franchises have focused prominently on Asgardian weapons. Thor’s weapon of choice is the mighty Mjolnir, the enchanted hammer that was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. Heimdall’s sword, Hofund, appears to be part of the Bifrost mechanism, meaning Hela needed to retrieve it in order to summon the rainbow bridge. And Stormbreaker, created by the dwarf Eitri in Avengers: Infinity War, may well have the potential to destroy entire planets.

Related: Theory: Stormbreaker Isn’t To Kill Thanos, It Gives Thor His Powers Back

But, as powerful as Asgardian weapons may be, there’s evidence that some of them could be wielded by humans – and could even grant Asgardian power to mortals. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Happy Hogan makes a throwaway reference to “Thor’s magic belt.” This is the Megingjörð of Norse legend, a word that literally translates into “power belt” and that doubles even Thor’s prodigious strength. This moment was only a throwaway reference – don’t expect Megingjörð to feature in Avengers: Endgame at all – but it’s certainly an interesting one. In the comics, Megingjörð was introduced in Journey into Mystery #91 back in 1963, where it was revealed to be a mystical belt held in storage by Odin when it wasn’t being used by the God of Thunder. Significantly, in Thor #276 it was able to be worn by a human – and, indeed, just the act of wearing Megingjörð granted a most unworthy man the strength to lift Mjolnir.

The throwaway reference to Megingjörð subtly sets up a lot of major comic book ideas for the MCU, most notably the Thunderstrike, an enchanted weapon that blended the human and the divine in order to create a superhero who named himself Thunderstrike after his hammer. Eric Masterson even claimed the mantle of Thor for a time; perhaps a similar idea could allow Thor to live on in the MCU even though Mjolnir has been destroyed, and even if Chris Hemsworth departs after Avengers: Endgame.

Interestingly, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has already established that Asgardian artifacts can be used by humans in the MCU as well. Back in season 1, in the episode “The Well”, Coulson and his team stumbled upon a long-lost Asgardian Berserker Staff that – just like Megingjörð – granted the wearer enhanced strength. True to its name, the Berserker Staff had the side-effect of forcing its bearer to face all their greatest pain in order to generate a surge of rage and hatred. While useful in Asgard’s brutal wars of ages past, it proved dangerous when it fell into the wrong hands.

All this means that there is indeed the potential for ordinary men and women to use Asgardian artifacts, and thus gain the power of the gods themselves. Considering that Asgard was destroyed at the end of Thor: Ragnarok and many expect a new home to be made on Earth, likely Norway, this would have some serious implications. Kevin Feige has teased that Marvel could potentially do a female Thor, inspired by the popular Jason Aaron run in which Jane Foster became the Mighty Thor, and the mention of Megingjörð may well explain how that could happen.

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Jon Watts In Talks To Direct Methusaleh Movie

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Jon Watts is in talks to direct a Methusaleh movie. The successful 2017 Homecoming marked Watts’ third feature film as a director, having previously gained attention for his indie films Cop Car and Clown. In addition to these, Watts has worked extensively in television, and as a music video director.

Most recently, Watts has been finishing work on the follow up to Homecoming, this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. However, as far as being attached to anything after that movie goes, Watts is currently something of a free agent. And given that he’s already proven himself with a big budget studio film, he might be just the filmmaker that Warner Bros. needs to work on their Methusaleh project, which has reportedly been a priority for years. It’s a project that not a lot is currently known about, aside from the fact that Tom Cruise had originally been interested in playing the titular character, but has since abandoned the role, which was then subsequently snapped up by Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan.

Related: Michael B Jordan To Play An Ageless Man In Methusaleh Movie

As such, Deadline is now reporting that Watts is currently in talks to direct the long-gestating Warner production. At present, Warner is looking to rewrite the current draft of the Methusaleh script, which had originally been written by Tony Gilroy (Rogue One, The Bourne Legacy). Exactly who’ll be hired to tackle Gilroy’s script remains a mystery, but if Watts does sign on to the project, it likely won’t be long before a writer is secured.

The story of Methusaleh is taken from the Bible, and deals with a legendary figure said to have lived to the age of 969. The story has roots in Jewish, Islamic and Christian faiths, though the Warner production doesn’t necessarily sound as though it’s interested in pursuing a biblical epic as Paramount did with 2014’s Darren Aronofsky effort, Noah. Instead, Warner appears to be eager to focus on the abilities of Methusaleh, gained from his extensive years of experience, particularly his vast amount of personal knowledge in science and numerous other academic pursuits. The character is also adept in survival skills and from the sound of things, the Methusaleh depicted in the film will be somewhat middle-aged – focusing on him as a 400-year-old, rather than on his much later and more widely fabled years.

Given that Tom Cruise was once attached to this project as well as the somewhat Henri Ducard/Pai Mei nature of the character, it wouldn’t be surprising if Warner is going to try and build an action franchise out of this one. A well-rounded, wizened action hero who looks as young as Jordan but actually employs hundreds of years of experience and study could be very interesting indeed. We likely won’t know much about Methusaleh until a new script is written, but with the very real prospect of Jon Watts joining Michael B. Jordan, this could be one to keep an eye on.

Beyoncé’s Homecoming Documentary Trailer Confirms Netflix Release Date

Netflix releases a trailer for Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé and confirms an April 17 release date. The documentary explores Beyoncé’s groundbreaking 2018 Coachella performance, in which she became the first woman of color to headline the popular music festival in Indio, California. 

In the late ‘90s, Beyoncé rose to fame as part of the group Destiny’s Child. In 1998, the band released their self-titled debut featuring the hit single “No, No, No.” However they truly become a pop culture sensation upon releasing 1999’s The Writing’s on the Wall and 2001’s Survivor, the latter of which reached #1 on the Billboard charts. By 2003, Beyoncé formed a romantic relationship with hip-hop icon Jay-Z, and she released her debut solo album Dangerously in Love that same year. To date, Beyoncé has released six solo albums, along with a 2018 collaborative album with Jay-Z entitled Everything Is Love. The couple married in 2008. Beyoncé has sold over 100 million albums in her recording career.

Netflix released the official trailer for Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé, this coming just days after Beyoncé teased the project on social media. In the clip’s first half, the voice of the late Maya Angelou plays over a video montage of Beyoncé’s past accomplishments. The interview recording emphasizes kindness, and ends with Angelou offering the advice that new generations “tell the truth.” In the second half, the trailer ramps up with footage of Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella performance, complemented by graphics that emphasize the cultural relevance of the event. At the end of the clip, Netflix confirms the release date and presents a yellow and black graphic with the official title. Watch the trailer for Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé below. 

After two decades in the music business, Beyoncé is undoubtedly one of the most influential artists of her time. The same applies to her husband Jay-Z, who is a self-made mogul in his own right, and the first rapper to be honored into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Together, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have won a combined 45 Grammy Awards. In anticipation of Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé’s release, Netflix released the following description:

“Homecoming presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities. Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”

The sudden trailer release for Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé falls in line with Beyoncé’s history of releasing new material with little promotion. Most recently, she and Jay-Z released the aforementioned Everything Is Love as “The Carters,” and Beyoncé famously released a visual album on HBO in 2016 to complement her solo album Lemonade.

The trailer for Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé marks yet another big moment in Beyoncé’s career, along with a big moment for Netflix. Given Beyoncé’s international influence, a world of fans will undoubtedly stream the documentary special, if only to re-experience the singer’s 2018 Coachella performance, or perhaps to see it for the first time. What the trailer doesn’t show, however, is Beyoncé discussing her preparation, so the April 17 release of Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé will be enlightening for long-time fans, along with those who are simply curious about how someone gets ready for such an event.

MCU Theory – Spider-Man: Homecoming Set Up Ultron’s Return

Although Ultron was destroyed in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s first Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming, potentially set up the AI’s return. Ultron is a classic Avengers villain, created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema back in 1968. In the comics, Ultron was an artificial intelligence created by Hank Pym, in part modeled on Pym’s own brainwaves. It developed a sentience of its own, and suffers from an Oedipus Complex, desiring to supplant its “father.” Over the years, Ultron has continually upgraded itself, becoming one of the Avengers’ greatest villains. It’s come within a hair’s breadth of conquering the Earth.

The MCU version of Ultron is slightly different. It was created by Tony Stark rather than Hank Pym; Stark imagined Ultron as the Earth’s ultimate defender, a protection against cosmic threats like the Chitauri. Unfortunately, he’d unwisely used the Mind Stone to create Ultron, and something went badly wrong; the AI went rogue, going so far as to attempt to wipe out the entire human race. Just as the comic book version of Ultron hated Hank Pym, the MCU’s Ultron burns with an irrational hatred towards Tony Stark.

Ultron is a major recurring villain in the comics, but in the MCU the AI appears to be a one-and-done type of big bad, both created and destroyed in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Is that really the case, though? Or could Ultron come back in a future MCU movie?

  • This Page: How Ultron Is Defeated & Where He Turns Up In Homecoming
  • Page 2: Ultron Could’ve Survived Sokovia & May Reappear In Phase 4

The Avengers spent the bulk of Avengers: Age of Ultron on the back foot, reacting to the AI’s complex masterplans. It was only by the third act that they’d begun to get the measure of their opponent, and, fortunately, when they headed to the Battle of Sokovia they had the support of Vision. Without Vision’s help, the Avengers would undoubtedly have been unable to defeat Ultron and save the human race.

By this point, Tony Stark had begun to understand just what kind of life form he was dealing with. While Ultron should be considered a sentient (albeit insane) being, it isn’t life as we know it. Ultron is an artificial intelligence, essentially a rogue computer program, and that means its natural habitat is a virtual environment rather than a physical one. It exists in digital systems, transmitting itself like a virus across computer networks. Fortunately, for the Avengers, a quirk of Ultron’s psychosis meant the AI wanted to beat the Avengers on their plane of reality, and as a result it craved a physical form, building bodies for itself with which to battle Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Putting all this together, Stark worked out how to beat Ultron once and for all. First of all, you had to isolate Ultron so it only existed on local networks; Vision’s role in all this was basically to act as a living firewall, keeping Ultron from jumping to any other networks. Then, you had to destroy every single piece of Ultron tech. Stark knew that, if a single sample of Ultron technology survived, then the odds were good that Ultron would return. Ultron would be destroyed when its final form was reduced to slag.

Given this is the case, it’s reasonable to assume that Tony Stark personally oversaw cleanup after the Battle of Sokovia. He’d have done so through Damage Control, the former S.H.I.E.L.D. department he’d taken charge of after the Chitauri invasion of New York. And his instructions would surely have been quite clear; every single sample of Ultron tech would need to be reduced to scrap, in order to ensure no compromised system was ever hooked into a computer network.

Unfortunately, Stark was unaware of the existence of Adrian Toomes. For years, Toomes had been operating at the center of an illegal black market in advanced and extraterrestrial technology. He and his gang took advantage of the chaos left in the Avengers’ wake, visiting sites of superhero activity and quickly procuring as much tech as they could before slipping back into the shadows. Over the years, they’d successfully acquired everything from Chitauri anti-grav systems to Dark Elf singularity grenades. Crucially, in one key scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man learned they’d also managed to get their hands on the head of an Ultron drone. If Toomes had managed to obtain one piece of Ultron tech, it’s reasonable to assume he’d acquired – and sold on – other samples too.

Page 2 of 2: Ultron Could’ve Survived Sokovia & May Reappear In Phase 4

According to Avengers: Age of Ultron, if just one piece of Ultron technology survived Sokovia, then it meant Ultron could potentially return. Now, it’s important to note that the drone seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming certainly couldn’t contain the full Ultron consciousness; at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Vision had successfully trapped Ultron within its last operating body, which he then destroyed. A fellow artificial intelligence, Vision is the only one of the Avengers who Ultron wouldn’t have been able to fool. But that doesn’t mean the Ultron drone the Vulture has obtained is benign, and the threat of Ultron is dead. Rather, it’s more likely that Ultron planted seed-like fragments of code within every one of its drones. Ultron has taken this very approach in several comic book plots; the moment the drone is exposed to a network, the code would expand into the network like a computer virus, and create an inexact copy of Ultron.

It’s not so much that Ultron survived Sokovia, then; rather, it’s more as though the AI had reproduced. Ultron 2.0 would essentially be the “son” of Ultron, sharing most of the basics of Ultron’s code, and likely dedicated to continuing the same mission. What’s concerning is, it’s possible some of Ultron’s flaws – such as the depth of its irrational hatred of Tony Stark, or its psychotic desire to take on a physical form – would not have been passed on to the next generation. So Ultron 2.0 could be an entirely virtual being, a challenge the Avengers would find even more difficult to handle, and lacking some of the psychological weaknesses possessed by its progenitor.

Related: Avengers: Age of Ultron May Have A Big Clue Nick Fury Is A Skrull

Should Ultron 2.0 be introduced in MCU Phase 4, it will emerge in a very different world. Firstly, this new Ultron would find itself dealing with a whole new generation of heroes. Avengers: Endgame is expected to be the swan song for the OG Avengers, with the likes of Chris Evans’ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man going out in a blaze of glory as they save half the life in the universe. For Ultron, the loss of some of these OG Avengers would potentially be keenly felt; if the AI retained its “father’s” obsession with Tony Stark, it would grieve his loss in a strange, twisted way. No doubt Ultron would swiftly research the next generation of Avengers, of course, and would swiftly identify the key threats.

Meanwhile, it’s also likely Ultron would be fascinated by Wakanda. At the time of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Wakanda was still an isolated African community, and its computer systems were closed to the world. With no network links into Wakanda, Ultron probably didn’t have a clue how advanced their technology really was. But Black Panther has committed his nation to revealing itself to the world as a beacon of hope, and in so doing it’s quite possible he’s unwittingly provide Ultron with a way behind Wakanda’s borders. Ultron was able to threaten the world with a relatively small amount of Vibranium; Ultron 2.0 would jump at the chance to obtain far greater quantities. Fortunately for Wakanda, according to the Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comic, Shuri is an expert in programming artificial intelligence. Marvel has insisted that Shuri is even smarter than Tony Stark; but is she smarter than Ultron as well?

Whatever the case, though, Ultron’s goal would remain largely the same. It would still want to destroy Tony Stark’s legacy, which would mean taking on the Avengers – whoever their members may be at the time. Meanwhile, it would likewise presumably launch another attempt at global genocide, raising the stakes once more. Hopefully this time, the Avengers would learn from their mistake and make sure no samples of Ultron tech survived.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Concept Art Reveals Scrapped Captain America Cameo

A new batch of Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art reveals a quick non-PSA Captain America cameo that didn’t end up making the final film. It’s almost hard to remember now, but only a few short years ago, many Marvel fans were convinced that Spider-Man would never appear within the MCU. After all, Sony had a death grip on the film rights, and seemed intent on squeezing every last dime they could out of the popular hero. Thankfully, Sony had a change of heart following the failure of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and decided to join forces with Marvel and revitalize the web-slinger’s big screen career.

Tom Holland’s teenage Spider-Man made a triumphant arrival in the MCU via 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, fighting alongside Iron Man’s team in the battle over the Sokovia Accords. Peter Parker would get his first taste of solo MCU stardom in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, which took place not long after Civil War, and furthered Peter’s mentor/pupil relationship with Tony Stark.

Sadly, Spider-Man’s journey through the MCU hit a huge roadblock when he ended up dusted by Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, in arguably the most emotional death scene in the film. While it’s no secret Peter will be resurrected in time for next summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, it remains to be seen how that will happen in Avengers 4. In the meantime, a new batch of concept art has surfaced for Spider-Man: Homecoming, thanks to artist Peter Mitchell Rubin. One of the included images reveals a scrapped cameo by Captain America, albeit in the form of a memorial statue. Below are five of the new images, but many more can be found on Rubin’s site.

Rubin doesn’t explain where exactly in the film the Captain America memorial statue seen above would’ve appeared, but the obvious assumption to make is that Peter’s friends would’ve encountered it during their visit to Washington, D.C. Whether or not Peter would’ve been with them is unclear, as he didn’t get to do that much with his classmates as himself before he needed to swing into action as Spider-Man and save the day.

Anyone who’s seen Homecoming knows that Captain America ended up appearing in several humorous PSAs that Peter watches in high school over the course of the film, despite technically being an international fugitive following Civil War. It’s revealed that a descendant of one of Steve Rogers’ old Howling Commandos teammates is the school principal, explaining him allowing Cap’s PSAs to still be shown. Perhaps that reasoning is why the initially planned statue cameo by Cap was removed, as it wouldn’t make sense for a monument honoring Steve to be on display while he’s an enemy of the U.S. government.
