Numan Acar has been added to the growing cast of the 2019 sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home - and his character name may hint he's playing Marvel villain Chameleon. Tom Holland will again play the web-slinging student and superhero, with fellow cast members Zendaya and Jacob Batalon returning, among others. Recent additions also include JB Smoove in a leading role.
The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is already filming and is promising to be bigger and funnier than the first. Key characters will be returning for the sequel, including Michael Keaton. Keaton will reprise his role as Adrian Toomes/ Vulture, but that doesn't mean he will be the sole villain of the film. The sequel has already begun shooting, with confirmation on newly added cast members.
According to Deadline, Acar has been cast as Dimitri, a mysterious role that could possibly mean a new villain for the franchise. Acar will be joining fellow newcomer to the film JB Smoove and possibly Jake Gyllenhaal, who is in talks to play Mysterio. Acar's character's name does point to the very real possibility he could play Marvel villain Chameleon, whose real name is Dmitri. Chameleon is known in the comic series to be a super-spy and master of disguise. A very likely and worthy villain to Marvel hero Spider-Man, Dmitri can make a life-like mask of anyone he meets, making him a tricky, if nearly impossible, foe to defeat.
Director James Gunn has long teased there is one reference to the classic Marvel Comics hidden in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie that nobody has spotted yet. The guessing game must continue, however, as Gunn recently refuted one popular theory that the last Easter egg involved the origins of the cosmic entity known as Galactus.
An unashamed fan of comic books and horror movies growing up, Gunn first broke into Hollywood writing screenplays for Troma Entertainment. In 2004, he became the first screenwriter in history to have one film that they wrote unseated from the top-spot at the box-office by another film they wrote, with the Dawn of the Dead remake dethroned by Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Even before he started working for Marvel Studios, Gunn was famous for the in-jokes and Easter eggs that he would work into his films. Within the past year, as more and more obscure references were unearthed, Gunn teased on his social media there was still one big Easter egg nobody had found yet.
Gunn shot down the most popular recent theory in a post on his personal Twitter, which can be viewed below. The gist of the theory was that, during the scene in which The Collector is recounting the history of the Infinity Stones, a screaming bald man awash in purple light is seen as The Collector talks about...
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we've got two brand new photos to share with you for Tom Hardy's upcoming Venom movie. The first image gives us a great new look at Venom sporting a sinister ear-to-ear grin. I do like that the character design is super comic accurate. I just hope that the movie is good! The second image features Hardy strapped to a chair and Riz Ahmed seems to be questioning him about something.
While talking to EW about one of the things that got him excited to play this character, Hardy said:
"As far as Marvel characters, I have to say for me, Venom looks the coolest. That sounds a bit shallow! But I appreciate that he has a kind of brazen swagger and a zero foxtrot attitude.
"There’s a tragic clown element, which I find funny and is harmonious with some of the work that I like to do. There’s something funny about the circumstances of having a gift but it’s a tragic gift. It’s a superpower you don’t really want, but at the same time, you love it. It makes...
Deadline reports that Turkish actor Numan Acar (Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin, Prison Break) has joined the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. The outlet says not much is known about his character, though he will go by the name “Dimitri.”
One key Spider-Man character that goes by that name is the villain Chameleon, the master of disguise and the half-brother of villain Kraven the Hunter. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for a Spider-Man villain to play a smaller role in the new movie as Spider-Man: Homecoming featured appearances by two different versions of The Shocker, plus The Tinkerer, and The Prowler in addition to The Vulture as its main baddie. This however is just speculation.
Confirmed Spider-Man: Far From Home cast members include Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya and Marisa Tomei as “MJ” and Aunt May. Jake Gyllenhaal remains in talks for the role of Mysterio while Michael Keaton is set to return as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of New York for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
Tom Holland recently confirmed a...
An unlikely gang of teenagers are determined to live the common adolescent dream, particularly by escaping their normal lives and embracing their favorite music at a celebrated festival.

Last week a Marvel fan shared a video in which he claims to have found a Galactus Easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy. Everything presented to prove his point was pretty damn convincing. Unfortunately, director James Gunn completely shuts down the theory:
Getting lots of messages about Galactus in the Collector scenes. No, he’s not there in any way. https://t.co/SNPDGMO979— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 15, 2018
So, that's kind of disappointing because I was really excited about this one. In fact, I'm still going to choose to believe it because it's pretty damn cool. So, the hunt continues for that fabled Easter egg that Gunn has been teasing for all these years.
Will anyone ever find this damn thing!? I wish Gunn should start giving out hints at where we should be looking. I want to know what it is!
For those of you who missed the Galactus Easter egg video, you can check it out below:
Marvel has released for first trailer for their new animated series of shorts for Disney XD called Marvel Rising: Initiation. The series will put the focus on the next generation of Marvel heroes.
The story centers around Gwen Stacy a.k.a. Ghost-Spider (Dove Cameron), who is ends up being framed for her friend's murder. She is eventually tracked down by a number of other heroes that include Kamala Khan a.k.a. Ms. Marvel (Kathleen Khavari), Doreen Green a.k.a Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub), Rayshaun Lucas a.k.a. Patriot (Kamil McFadden), and Daisy Johnson a.k.a. Quake (Chloe Bennet).
This is all leading up to a feature-length film called Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, which will debut later this year.
It looks like it will end up being a fun series of animated shorts to watch, my girls are definitely going to love it. Marvel Director of Content Sana Amanat previously had this to say about the project when talking to Buzzfeed:
"It came out of a desire to be able to tell stories about characters that we think are the next great heroes of the Marvel Universe. I think it's incredibly...
We've got a brand new exciting trailer for you to watch for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody! I've recently been listening to a lot of Queen lately because I've introduced their music to my kids and they absolutely love it. I loved what I've seen in these trailers that have been released and this latest one is filled with a lot of new footage that is all mixed together with some of Queens most popular songs.
The series stars Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) in the role of Freddy Mercury. I had my initial doubts when he was first cast in the role, but it looks like he owns it. He went through one hell of a transformation to bring Mercury to life on the big screen and it looks like he gives a great performance along with everyone else who was cast in the film.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the...
Last month, DICE hosted a closed alpha for Battlefield V, allowing a small group of players to try out an early version of the game set in the map of Arctic Fjord. Now, DICE published a detailed blog post explaining the data and feedback they were able to gather during the alpha.
According to the developer, the primary purpose of the alpha was to test the game's technical components such as the "many backend systems, player scoring rate, and many other things." During the alpha, the gameplay, especially the matching system was highlighted. DICE encountered several issues concerning the "matchmaking configuration" resulting in error prompts or players being put into "less suitable server locations."
"There are many factors to juggle when it comes to matchmaking: finding players with equal latency and skill level, and more - and these factors all need to co-exist," DICE's blog post explained.
Moreover, the closed alpha revealed a few issues with server stability. DICE explained that crashes should be as rare as possible and they were almost about to hit that target. Nevertheless, DICE will aim...
Last week Nathan Fillion teased a project that he was working on that was connected to Nathan Drake and the Uncharted video game franchise. Well, today we know exactly what it was that he was teasing!
Nathan Fillion stars as Nathan Drake in a live-action Uncharted fan film and it's pretty freakin' fantastic! It also shows how perfect Fillion fits this character! After watching this, it's a shame that he'll still probably never star in a feature film. Oh yeah! I should probably also mention that the short also stars Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don't Breathe) in the role of Sully, which is another perfect piece of casting!
The short film was directed by Allan Ungar and he made a fan film that I think Uncharted fans will be proud of. It's a great set up to a story and the writing is clever, fun, and spot on! It's also got some great action and some cool shots!
I've been wanting to see Fillion take on the role of Nathan Drake for years, and now we finally get to see that and it's definitely a...
"There's been whispers… of a thief!" Lionsgate has revealed the second, full-length official trailer for their new Robin Hood movie, titled very simply Robin Hood. How original. This new trailer is better than the first teaser by miles. If you haven't had enough Robin Hood, after Ridley Scott's failed Russell Crowe movie from 2010, then here's another fresh action-packed take for you. This Robin Hood stars Taron Egerton as Robin of Loxley, a "war-hardened Crusader" who fights against the corrupt English crown with his friend, Little John, played by Jamie Foxx. The cast includes Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin, Björn Bengtsson, Ian Peck, and Jamie Dornan. This doesn't look so bad, if I'm completely honest. Obviously it's cliche with all the badassery and evil king, but it also looks very entertaining. Fire it up below. ›››
