Spider-Man producer says another Tom Holland-led trilogy will happen

In a recent interview with Fandango, Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal discussed the future of the franchise, seemingly confirming another Tom Holland-led trilogy.

Pascal said, “This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – this is not the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”

Following that interview, Tom Holland was asked about Pascal’s comments, to which he replied, “Listen, all I’ll say is we have some very, very exciting things to be talking about. I don’t know what those things are or what they will transpire to mean. But it looks like it’s an incredibly bright future ahead, and as I’ve said before, Spider-Man will forever live in me.”

Jessica Henwick was forced to choose between The Matrix and Shang-Chi

It looks like Jessica Henwick almost ended up in Marvel’s Shang-Chi before taking her role in The Matrix 4.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress said that she was already lined up for a chemistry test on The Matrix when she was approached about a potential role in Shang-Chi.

Henwick said, “The studios knew about the other offers, and both of them gave me the offer on the stipulation that I could only audition for one or the other. And there was no guarantee that I would get either. It was a red pill, blue pill moment for me.”

It’s unknown which role Henwick would have been up for in Shang-Chi, but she said her previous experience as Colleen Wing on Iron Fist helped her to choose The Matrix over another MCU project.

“I’ve obviously done Marvel TV, so I was already in the universe. I knew that joining The Matrix is not an opportunity that you get every day. Lana has had so many offers to make more Matrix films. I just knew it was now or never. Whereas, obviously, Marvel is a huge, wonderful company that makes films very, very regularly.”

Fall Guys for Switch and Xbox delayed to 2022

While the latest Season of Fall Guys has just begun, Nintendo Switch and Xbox gamers will have to wait a bit longer to join in on the fun.

Developer Mediatonic has once again delayed the battle royale on those platforms, with a release now set for sometime in 2022.

They said in a statement, “We know everyone’s excited about Fall Guys coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox, with good reason. There’s been a lot of speculation on social media connecting these new console releases to the Season 6 launch and we want to clarify that that’s not the case so no one’s left confused looking for the game on these platforms. Thank you for being patient with us; it’s one of our top priorities in active development and we can’t wait to share more details with you in 2022.”
