The Domino King has been enjoying the PS4 Spider-Man game, so he thought he’d make a tribute to the friendly neighborhood superhero. It took him about a week and 36,186 dominoes to complete the maze.
Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.
At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.
As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.
Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.
Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!
A very cool fan theory has been confirmed by Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland. The theory is that the little Iron Man fan who holds up his hand to fight one of the Hammer drones in the 2010 film was none other than Peter Parker.
Holland confirmed the Iron Man 2 Spider-Man, or at least Peter Parker, appearance.
“It is Peter Parker,” he says. “I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
A young Peter Parker / Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7.
Spider-Man and his various nemeses are coming soon as Mystery Minis from Funko! Open the blind boxes to find a variety of Spidey characters, including Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Scarlet Spider! You can also find iconic villains such as Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, and Vulture!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s Marvel Comics ARTFX+ Statues have brought you Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Avengers as well as the heroic mutants of the X-Men. Now they’re kicking off an all-new series of high quality 1/10th scale ARTFX+ figures based on characters in the world of everyone’s favorite web-slinger, so of course they’re starting with The Amazing Spider-Man himself! In 1962 Stan Lee created the character of Spider-Man, the teen-aged Peter Parker granted extraordinary powers by the bite of a radioactive spider. With great power comes great responsibility, and Spider-Man would use that power to save lives and protect the innocent. The innovative superhero has gone on to become one of the most popular and famous characters of all time, appearing in hundreds of comic books, television shows, and a huge comic book blockbuster film franchise.
The Amazing Spider-Man is always in the middle of the action, and this fantastic ARTFX+ presentation captures him in one of his most iconic poses. The heroic Peter Parker crouches low to the ground, ready to spring up at a moment’s notice. His left hand is stretched behind him for balance while his right hand is thrust forward in the classic web-shooting pose. Spider-Man wears his traditional red and blue costume, recreated here with painstaking sculpted detail in the fabric’s texture, black webbing design, spider emblem on his chest, and the superhero’s lean muscled physique. Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers and X-Men series, Junnosuke Abe, the Amazing Spider-Man is just under 3 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) while crouched, and he too has magnets in his feet to provide perfect stability on his included display base. Catch Spider-Man before he swings away, and watch out for more Spidey-related ARTFX+ Statues coming from Kotobukiya soon!
Pre-order HERE for $59.99, available November 2016.
Marvel Studios has officially released a first look at Tom Holland‘s new Spider-Man costume! As seen in the Captain America: Civil War trailer.
“I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity,” Holland told us last year. “So we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask.”
Tom Holland will make his debut in this new Spider-Man costume in Captain America: Civil War, where he stars alongside Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man in the May 6, 2016 release.
Following that film, Holland will be spinning his own web in a Spider-Man solo film. There, he’ll be joined by Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya in an undisclosed role.
Set to be directed by Jon Watts, the solo Spider-Man movie will be written by Vacation writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. It will mark the sixth big screen feature film to feature the Marvel Comics character. Sam Raimi directed the first three Spider-Man movies, all of which starred Tobey Maguire in the lead. Released in 2002, the first Spider-Man was followed by Spider-Man 2 in 2004 and Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Sony Pictures then rebooted the franchise with two Marc Webb-helmed features, starring Andrew Garfield: The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014. Early last year, it was announced that this latest iteration will allow for Sony to works alongside Walt Disney Pictures, allowing their Spider-Man to appear within the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A co-production between Sony and Marvel Studios, the new Spider-Man will be released in theaters and IMAX on July 7, 2017.

Today, he’s the world’s greatest super hero. But long before he swung from rooftops as the Amazing Spider-Man, he was just a spider-powered teenager who knew that “with great power must also come great responsibility.” Today, Marvel is pleased to announce Spidey #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel! Follow the adventures of teenaged Peter Parker in a new series set within continuity from rising star writer Robbie Thompson (TV’s Supernatural, Silk) and blockbuster Marvel Young Gun artist Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy)!
“Everyone remembers their first Spider-Man comic,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “Spidey aims to be perfect as someone’s first Spider-Man comic, or their one thousandth. We’re not looking to re-tell stories here. What Robbie (Thompson) and Nick (Bradshaw) have put together is an exciting new take on Spider-Man at his arguably most iconic incarnation, and will feel fresh to new and old fans alike.”
Class is in session as two of the hottest creators in comics take Peter back to school for a classic and iconic take on the Spider-Man mythology. Familiar faces and new characters populate Peter Parker’s world as he balances his double life as a high school student and the high-flying, web-swinging new hero Spider-Man!
“Out of the 700+ issues of Amazing Spider-Man” shares Spider-Man Editor Nick Lowe, “Peter Parker was only in high school for thirty issues! Stan and Steve covered a lot, but there’s a lot of the high school and early super hero experience still on the table.”
Iconic villains, a classic supporting cast, the ol’ Parker Luck and more are back! Don’t miss one moment of these bombastic new adventures as Thompson and Bradshaw create a legend of their own when Spidey #1 comes to comic shops later this year!
Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios officially announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man! As such, Marvel Studios has also shifted its upcoming release calendar.
Under a new deal, a new Spider-Man will first appear in a currently-unspecified Marvel film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.
Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.
The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel’s world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other super heroes in the MCU.
“Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters,” says Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company, “beloved around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”
“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”
“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future,” added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.
“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years.”
Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.
As a result of the new deal, Thor: Ragnarok will now arrive nearly four months later than planned, moving to November 3, 2017 (from July 28). Black Panther, which previously held that spot, gets delayed eight months, going from that original November 3 date to July 6, 2018. That, in turn, bumps Captain Marvel to November 2, 2018 and moves Inhumans all the way to July 12, 2019. The two-part Avengers: Infinity War, meanwhile, remains set for release May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019.
