With Captain America: Civil War arriving, finally, in U.S. theaters this week, the hype is real and critics and audiences everywhere are gushing about the superhero epic, with one noticeable stand out mentioned in every review: Spider-Man. Collider’s own Haleigh Foutch sat down with Marvel Head Honcho Kevin Feige to talk all things Civil War and Spider-Man. Feige already confirmed that Marvel would be in charge of the creative side of things with Sony handling distribution. But one thing fans are wondering is whether or not the stand alone Spider-Man would take place before or after Civil War. Feige clarified that the stand alone would in fact take place after the events in Civil War and would not rehash an origin story again but instead, operate on the assumption that movie going audiences know enough to still enjoy his story. Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released July 7, 2017.
A new trailer was released for The Shallows starring Blake Lively. Jaume Collet-Serra‘s upcoming thriller is about a surfer who gets stranded on rock with a hungry shark circling her real estate in hopes of catching a late lunch. The Shallows will be released on June 29th, 2016.
According to The Wrap, Universal Pictures will release the third film in their Monster Shared Universe on Feb. 15, 2019. The project, which remains untitled, will follow the June 2017 release of Tom Cruise‘s The Mummy and another mystery monster movie due in April 2018 rumored to be Johnny Depp‘s The Invisible Man. The Wrap speculates that the 2019 release could be either Bride of Frankenstein that once had Angelina Jolie circling, or a Wolfman movie. The creative team of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are overseeing Universal’s Monsters Universe which kicks off next June, 2017.
Broad Green Pictures announced yesterday that it has landed the rights to John Leake’s true crime novel Entering Hades and attached Michael Fassbender to produce and star as Jack Unterweger the Austrian serial killer who was also a celebrated journalist and best-selling author who spent his days investigating murders and his nights committing them. Unterweger was released from prison in 1990 and used as an example of rehabilitation, working as a journalist reporting on various crimes in Los Angeles. Little did the public know that as soon as Unterweger was released, he began killing again. Alexander Dinelaris, who won an Oscar for co-writing Birdman and also co-wrote The Revenant, is rewriting the script. No release date has been set.

It’s been almost twenty years since Roland Emmerich’s alien apocalypse movie Independence Day hit theatres and soon, the director will be putting the Earth through even more destruction with Independence Day: Resurgence. A lot in the ID4 world has changed since the last invasion and to show just how much, 20th Century Fox has released a viral video that brings us up to speed with the planet’s technological and humanitarian advancements since the devastating “War of 1996.″ Independence Day: Resurgence will hit theatres this June 24th.
The long in development Monsterpocalypse movie is finally gaining some traction in a big way. THR reports that a bidding war was underway between Warner Bros., DreamWorks, and Sony to acquire the Monsterpocalypse package, which now has Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez set to direct and co-write with his writing partner Rodo Sayagues. The movie follows a similar premise as Pacific Rim, in which humans in robot suits fight monsters, and was once developed by Tim Burton and his Big Fish screenwriter John August. When the original Pacific Rim got off the ground, the project stalled and Burton and August left the package. Now, Warner Brothers has won the rights to produce, hoping to get Monsterpocalypse off the ground. A release date has yet to be determined.

Hey Collider Crew!
A while back you guys discussed the Labyrinth sequel. Some names were thrown around like Mick Jagger and Stephen Tyler to play another goblin king-esque figure, but but let’s be honest, I don’t think that they’d be able to carry a movie today, especially if the studios want to reach younger audiences. If they decide to go the musical route like in the original, who do you think could take on the impossible task of taking up Bowie’s mantle while still being bankable? Could the goblin King’s successor be a woman? And if the studios DO go with Jagger or Tyler, what other big name actor could help sell the movie?
Keep up the good work!
