Movie theaters may have opened back up, but they aren’t back for good. Cineworld recently suspended operations of their theaters, which includes Regal Cinemas. Cineworld comes in second only to AMC when it comes to being a global exhibitor. With them making that big of a move, I imagine AMC will close back up before the end of 2020, as well. The biggest announcement as of late though was when Disney announced that they were restructuring to account for a greater focus on streaming. Will this move help kill movie theaters even faster than they’ve already been dying?Read More “Will Disney Kill Movie Theaters?”
Spider-Man will be staying in the MCU:
On Friday, the two companies jointly announced that Marvel Studios and its president, Kevin Feige, will produce the third film in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” series. It will once again feature Tom Holland reprising his role as the titular hero. The rumor mill roared back to life this week with hints that the two companies were close to brokering a new agreement.

In exchange for lending Feige’s producing prowess, Marvel and Disney will receive roughly 25% of the profits, according to insiders. Disney will retain its merchandising rights and will put up roughly a quarter of the financing. As part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in one future Marvel Studios film.

With so much history, there’s always something to read. That makes it hard to know where to begin, too, unless you do go back to the very beginning.
Jonathan Hickman’s House of X is a new chapter for the X-Men, so if you’ve been looking for a jumping-on point, you can start here. Just go into it knowing that this first issue is a lot to take in. Charles Xavier has a plan for mutantkind, and it’s forming epically.
Heading into the weekend it was a foregone conclusion that Avengers: Endgame would deliver the largest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and globally, but to deliver a three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1 billion was almost inconceivable. Today that figure has become a reality as Endgame not only delivered an estimated $350 million over the course of its first three days in domestic release, but a massive $1.2 billion at the global box office in just its first five days in release.
Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. I’ve learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and I’ve confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn’s camp.
