A ‘Spider-Man’ Spider-Verse Crossover?

Tom Holland’s third “Spider-Man” film is reportedly set to see notable Marvel Cinematic Universe comebacks. According to reports, the Jon Watts-directed film will see the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, previous Spider-Man characters. Tom Holland will, however, still take on the lead role in “Spider-Man 3.”

Collider reports other cast members returning include Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Kirsten Dunst as MJ, and Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus. Charlie Cox, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jamie Foxx will also be reprising their roles as Daredevil, Dr. Strange and Electro respectively in “Spider-Man 3”. Following Tony Stark’s demise, Dr. Strange will take his place as Peter Parker’s (Holland) new mentor, according to THR. The new cast will be joining Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon and Tony Revolori.

“Spider-Man 3” is slated for a theatrical release on December 17th, 2021.

‘French Exit’ Trailer Released

Sony Pictures Classics has released the official trailer for “French Exit” movie. The comedy drama, an adaptation of Patrick DeWitt’s novel of the same name, follows an aging Manhattan socialite living on what’s barely left of her inheritance, decides to move to a small apartment in Paris with her son and cat.

The official synopsis reads: “My plan was to die before the money ran out,” says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Michelle Pfeiffer), but things didn’t go as planned. Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank—who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’s dead husband.

Directed by Azazel Jacobs, “French Exit” premieres in theatres February 12, 2021. Watch the trailer below!
