Alfred Molina Was A Little Too Attached To His Doc Ock Tentacles

Alfred Molina has been the talk of the town lately, thanks to his return as Doc Ock, one of Spider-Man's most formidable foes on the silver screen in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 2,"  arguably the greatest superhero film ever made. Dr. Otto Octavius and his villainous alter ego, Doctor Octopus, has long been one of the web-slinger's most prominent adversaries, and he became even more menacing in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." But like many Spider-Man villains, Molina imbued the comic book villain with su...

5 Comics To Read Before Watching Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

"Doctor Strange" was released in 2016 and it introduced us to an entirely new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Benedict Cumberbatch's Stephen Strange opening the door to the realm of the mystic arts. While we've seen a great deal of Strange, as well as magic, in the MCU since -- including in "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Spider-Man: No Way Home" -- Cumberbatch has yet to get a solo sequel. That all changes in 2022, as "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" is finally set to hit...

What Spider-Man: No Way Home's Oscar Buzz Owes To Superhero Movie Darlings That Came Before

Despite the many challenges of debuting in the midst of a global pandemic, "Spider-Man: No Way Home" has barely slowed down, continuing to shatter box office records and exceed already high expectations. In addition to being Sony's biggest movie to date, the latest Spidey flick has now secured a spot in the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time, with a whopping $1.36 billion globally.

Andrew Garfield Had Lots Of Fun Lying About Spider-Man: No Way Home

For some Hollywood actors, particularly those bound up in the web of secrecy surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, non-disclosure agreements are a burden. Then there's "The Amazing Spider-Man" star Andrew Garfield, who describes the experience of lying to the press as "rather stressful but also weirdly enjoyable."Garfield's return in "Spider-Man: No Way Home," alongside fellow former Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire, was pretty much the world's worst-kept secret in the lead-up to the release ...

Box Office: ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Rules Again, ‘The 355’ Misfires

Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o and the cast of Universal’s globe-trotting espionage thriller “The 355” were no match for “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which dominated at the box office in its fourth weekend.

Manhattan Apartments That Peter Parker Could Actually Afford To Rent

Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."At the end of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," young Peter Parker needs to get his own apartment in Manhattan, and though the apartment shown on screen isn't the height of luxury, it's still pretty darn nice for his budget and location! Which got us thinking ... what kind of apartment could Peter Parker actually afford in Manhattan these days? New York City has notoriously high rent rates that have only gotten less affordable since Sam Raimi's "Spi...

Why Has Tom Holland's Spider-Man Never Been The Star Of His Own Movie?

As "Spider-Man: No Way Home" continues its theatrical rollout worldwide, more audiences are getting to experience the movie, which is really the eighth leg in the live-action Spider-Man film series, as opposed to just a continuation of Tom Holland's Spidey adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In "No Way Home," Holland, as Peter Parker, has to deal with a sudden influx of "multiversal trespassers," supervillains from Sony movies past who are now encroaching on his MCU territory. In a way,...

Following an unplanned hiatus in response to an unprecedented pandemic, Marvel Studios hit the ground running two weeks into the year and rarely slowed down in its 50-week jog, dominating the Disney+ streaming service and convincing American audiences to brave movie theaters in a time where large gatherings in small spaces was considered a deadly combination. Meanwhile, other productions not directly affiliated with...

Weeks after storming into theaters and representing many audience members' grand return to the big screen after months of playing it safe during the pandemic, "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is still making headlines. For one thing, the smash hit continues to rake it in at the box office, becoming Sony's biggest movie ever and positioning itself to land in the top 10 highest domestic earners of all time (though with the caveat of not adjusting for inflation, of course).

Venom Was Nearly In Spider-Man: No Way Home's Final Battle

You know what "Spider-Man: No Way Home" was missing? That's right, more characters.In all seriousness, the crossover extravaganza billed as the moviegoing event of 2021 easily lived up to the hype, at least in terms of stuffing the narrative full of villains and heroes from previous "Spider-Man" continuities. Somehow, against all odds, the script mostly kept its focus squarely on Tom Holland's Peter Parker and his toughest, most challenging adventure in the MCU yet. The fact that so many minute ...

How Doctor Strange 2's Delay Affected The Spider-Man: No Way Home Script

As all you movie buffs out there are painfully aware, Covid has wreaked havoc on Hollywood's release schedule for the past two years. It's been a particularly big problem for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, given how connected its films and series are and the way their stories feed into one another. In the case of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers were still developing the movie's script when the MCU's release slate rearranged itself around them as though someone h...

Why Sam Raimi Wanted Venom To Stay Out Of The Movies

Everyone has a lot of thoughts about "Spider-Man 3," which is universally accepted (by Sam Raimi, too) as the weakest entry in the superhero trilogy. It was overstuffed with too many subplots, one emo Peter Parker, and a few villains treated as sideshows. One of those villains in question, of course, is Topher Grace's Venom (Eddie Brock), a character that demanded a movie of his own.Venom made his silver screen debut in the 2007 film, but its execution was rather flawed. Now "Spider-Man 3" wasn'...

The Iron Man Scene In Captain America: Civil War You Didn't Realize Was Improvised

Though improv may sometimes cause you to roll your eyes (haven't we all endured a bad improv show?), great actors have used improvisation as a great tool throughout cinema history. For instance, the scene when Indiana Jones shoots a foe that tries to intimidate him with swordplay. Or how about when Willy Wonka somersaults instead of falling on his face as he approaches the contest winners in front of his factory? And of course, there's just about anything Robin Williams ever did. Another great e...

The Best Characters In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Ranked

At its core, fan service is material that's been added to a film for an audience's pleasure. Usually, it's not relevant to the story. It does not care for your "Save The Cat!" beat sheet or Robert McKee's three-act structure. Even at its best, it's extraneous. I was so worried that Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: No Way Home" was going to be "Fan Service: The Movie." I am thrilled to report that it isn't. Yes, there are meta-textual gags about Tobey Maguire's back and Paul Giamatti's Rhino in "Spider-Ma...
