Jesse Eisenberg talks Lex Luthor

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 07:10:00 GMT

In issue 224 of Total Film we sat down with Jesse Eisenberg to talk his varied career.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £2.99 on your iPad – TF couldn't help but ask about his character in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the iconic villain, Lex Luthor.

And it sounds like Eisenberg is having some input into this incarnation.

"There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own."

"I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I've been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person."

For more on Jesse pick up the brand new issue of Total Film, which is out Friday 29 August, and includes an exclusive look at Gone Girl, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Life After Beth and much more.

Total Film 224 is available at all good newsagents now (and you can order the issue online here).

Rumour: Avengers: Age Of Ultron to introduce new superheroes?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 06:36:00 GMT

A new rumour has emerged this morning regarding Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and some potential shifts to the lineup that could be precipitated by the film’s ending.

According to Badass Digest, the film will conclude with Captain America assembling a new team of superheroes, comprised of a mixture of characters old and new.

Why exactly a new team would be required has yet to be explained, but one of the major new additions is thought to be Ms. Marvel, otherwise known as Captain Marvel.

The report does go on to explain that the studio is still deliberating on whether to introduce her here in such a throwaway manner, or whether to give her a proper origin story in her own film, but in any case, it looks like that female superhero isn’t too far away.

Definitely worth staying after the credits for this one, in any case. Directed by Joss Whedon and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans et al, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.

Denzel Washington stays cool in new clip from The Equalizer: watch now

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 06:20:00 GMT

A new clip has arrived online from The Equalizer, in which Denzel Washington stays cool in the face of interrogation from a mysterious suit…

The new film sees Washington play Robert McCall, a former Black Ops commando, who has since ditched his service career in favour of a quiet life.

However, when he discovers a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) is being terrorised by a firm of Russian gangsters, he just can’t help himself from slipping back into the old routine.

Take a look at the new clip, below…

Washington can do this cool, composed badass routine in his sleep, but that doesn’t make it any the less enjoyable to watch, and The Equalizer looks like another solid action vehicle to showcase Denzel at his smoothest…

Directed by Antoine Fuqua and co-starring Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas and Bill Pullman, The Equalizer will open in the UK on 26 September 2014.

Jeff Bridges stars in new trailer for Second Son: watch now

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 06:04:00 GMT

A new trailer has arrived online for Seventh Son, Sergei Bodrov’s fantasy saga starring Jeff Bridges as a mystical warrior and Ben Barnes as his young protégé.

Barnes is the Seventh Son in question, you see, a lowly farmhand who just happens to be a prophesized hero boasting some rather incredible powers.

He’ll be needing them too, because it’s down to him to go toe to toe with Julianne Moore’s evil queen, whose army of supernatural assassins are running rampage through the kingdom.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

The film has been delayed no fewer than three times already, its initial release date having first been scheduled for way back in 2013. However, if that doesn’t inspire a great deal of confidence, the quality of the cast alone means we’re still intrigued to give this one a whirl…

Directed by Bodrov and co-starring Olivia Williams, Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander, Seventh Son will open in the UK on 6 February 2015.

Steve Carell turns nasty in new Foxcatcher teaser: watch now

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 05:48:00 GMT

A new teaser trailer has arrived for Foxcatcher, in which Steve Carell takes centre-stage as unnerving millionaire turned wrestling coach, John du Pont.

Obsessed with the notion of winning an Olympic gold medal, Du Pont invites wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) to his estate to form a team for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, while granting him th chance to step out of the shadow of his older brother (Mark Ruffalo).

Unfortunately, Du Pont is not the most stable of mentors, and things soon take a turn for the tragic as he grows increasingly desperate in his attempts to ensure his dream doesn’t hit the skids.

Take a look at the new teaser, below…

Carell is on genuinely terrifying form here, while stopping short of the all-out melodrama that sometimes affects comic actors turning “serious”. Don’t expect that Oscar talk to die down any time soon…

Directed by Bennett Miller and co-starring Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall, Foxcatcher will open in the UK on 9 January 2015.

Rumour: Joaquin Phoenix back on to play Doctor Strange?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 05:33:00 GMT

The Doctor Strange casting process could be about to take another twist, with Collider reporting that Joaquin Phoenix is in final negotiations with Marvel to take the title role.

Phoenix had been heavily linked to the part a couple of months ago, only for the rumour to go cold, with speculation rife that he was unwilling to tie himself to such a potentially long-running franchise.

It has since been reported that Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston is the new frontrunner for the role, but Collider claims that Phoenix’s participation is all but a done deal.

It’s thought that the length of the negotiating process can be explained by Phoenix’s desire to retain a degree of scheduling flexibility, allowing him more scope to film other projects, but should the deal go through, it will be a huge coup for Marvel.

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange will open in the US on 8 July 2016, with a UK date still to be confirmed.

Ricky Gervais says David Brent film is “almost a musical”

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 06:41:00 GMT

Ricky Gervais has been discussing what we can expect from his forthcoming David Brent movie, with the comedian describing the project as “almost a musical”.

“Yeah I’m gonna do it,” confirms Gervais. “It’s really different. It’s another fake documentary about what he’s doing now, and what he’s doing now is sort of repping.”

“But he hasn’t let go of this dream of being a rock star and he’s got a lot of songs together and he’s got a young band together that he’s paying through the nose for and they’re just sort of ripping him off. They’re sort of session musicians so he’s losing money.”

“He has to cash in a pension, he does a little tour he wants the record companies to come along to. Obviously he thinks it’s like Scorsese following the Rolling Stones around, this documentary team, but it’s really sort of a Where Are They Now documentary… it’s almost a musical, really.”

And as to when we can expect to see the finished article, Gervais is aiming for a two-year process before getting the film to cinemas…

“I’m writing it now, I’ll probably film it next year. We’re talking 18 months to two years again. It can certainly have a theatrical release around the world. But we’re not talking ‘blockbuster’. We’re probably talking an under 10 million dollar movie. I’m not making a Hobbit movie here.”

Exciting times for the Brentmeister General, then. Go and get the guitar…

Robert Downey Jr. describes Guardians Of The Galaxy as best Marvel movie yet

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 06:24:00 GMT

With Guardians Of The Galaxy recently passing the $500 million mark worldwide, Robert Downey Jr. has taken the opportunity to praise the film, and hail it as one of Marvel’s best offerings to date.

Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” says Downey. “And it’s odd for someone with - on occasion - an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”

In addition to that, Downey is full of praise for how the studio’s long-term plan have allowed it the chance to bring some of its lesser-known characters to a much wider audience...

“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic-books series and say: ‘Look!’”

All of which means the pressure is back on Downey and co, when Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron opens in the UK on 24 April 2015. Over to you, chaps…

Chloë Grace Moretz says Kick-Ass 3 is unlikely to happen

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 06:10:00 GMT

Chloë Grace Moretz has been discussing the possibility of a third entry in the Kick-Ass franchise, and has described another sequel as unlikely after the second film’s disappointing box office take.

“Sadly, I think I'm done with the character,” says Moretz of her iconic role as Hit-Girl. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies.”

“You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures.”

“We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one. If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It’s all about the numbers in the theatre.”

Indeed, with the film only just scraping past the $60 million mark worldwide, it seems unlikely that we’ll see a third outing for Hit-Girl and co., but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed nonetheless. After all, C-bomb spouting, pre-teen heroines don’t come along every day…

Daniel Radcliffe stars in new trailer for Horns: watch now

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 05:56:00 GMT

A new full-length trailer has arrived for Alexandre Aja’s Horns, in which Daniel Radcliffe plays a bereaved lover on the hunt for his girlfriend’s killer.

Unfortunately for him, the small-town community in which he lives has already decided that he is responsible, and has made him a pariah accordingly.

However, when he suddenly sprouts a strange pair of horns, Radcliffe discovers he can make people confess their darkest secrets, and getting to the bottom of the truth doesn’t seem quite so hard after all…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Whereas the first trailer contained a few lighter moments, this one is all about the intensity, both of Radcliffe’s love for his girlfriend and his desire to bring her killer to justice. He’s a man on a mission…

Directed by Aja, adapted from Joe Hill’s novel and co-starring Juno Temple, Max Minghella and Kelli Garner, Horns will open in the UK on 29 October 2014.

Charlie Hunnam taking title role in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 05:41:00 GMT

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur looks to have found its leading man, with Deadline reporting that Charlie Hunnam is in final negotiations to join the production.

Hunnam will play the titular monarch, and will join Idris Elba, who has already been cast as his mentor in a role similar to (although not explicitly described as) that of Merlin.

Meanwhile, Variety is also reporting that Elizabeth Olsen is the frontrunner to play the female lead, who we would assume to be Guinevere, Arthur’s queen.

With a script having been penned by screenwriter Joby Harrold, it has been suggested that the first film will introduce a series of six big-screen adventures, although clearly that will depend on the success of the initial outing.

Directed by Ritchie, King Arthur will open in the UK on 22 July 2016.

Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen star in new trailer for Trash: watch now

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:57:00 GMT

A new trailer has arrived online for Trash, Stephen Daldry’s Rio-set tale of three favela kids who have their lives turned upside down when they discover something unusual at the local dump.

The item in question is a wallet, and a wallet that the local police seem unusually keen to get their hands on… by bribery at first, and then by even less salubrious means…

Fortunbately, the boys have a pair of American missionaries to turn to in the form of Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen, who just might be able to help them uncover the story of the wallet’s real owner.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Directed by Daldry and co-starring Wagner Moura, Selton Mello and André Ramiro, Trash will open in the UK on 30 January 2015.

First trailer lands for found footage horror The Pyramid: watch now

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:01:00 GMT

The first trailer has arrived online for found footage horror The Pyramid, in which something sinister is lurking in one of the ancient Egyptian structures.

The first directorial effort from High Tension scribe Grégory Levasseur, the new film follows a group of archaeologists who stumble upon a previously undiscovered pyramid in the Egyptian desert.

Intrigued, they decide to have a bit of an explore, and sure enough, there are all manner of centuries-old nasties waiting for them within.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

While the set-up might feel a little familiar, horror fans will have noted the presence of Alexandre Aja on production duties, while Inbetweeners star James Buckley is amongst the principle players. Whether or not he gets to say the word “clunge” remains to be seen.

Co-starring Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare and Christa-Marie Nicola, The Pyramid will open in the UK on 5 December 2014.

New TV spot arrives for Interstellar: watch now

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:45:00 GMT

Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot to promote Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, in which Matthew McConaughey leads a team of astronauts on an Earth-saving mission to space.

Saving humanity from extinction is the name of the game, so stakes are suitably high for what looks like another grandstanding piece of filmmaking from Nolan. Expect goosebumps aplenty…

This latest spot doesn’t contain much in the way of new footage, but as a sixty-second adrenaline hit, it works very nicely indeed.

Take a look at the new spot, below…

Certainly looks like one that might be worth finding the extra few pounds to go and watch in an IMAX screen, doesn’t it? Even on a laptop, it feels suitably epic…

Directed by Nolan and co-starring Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck, Interstellar will open in the UK on 7 November 2014.

Ron Howard will shoot Inferno in April 2015

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:31:00 GMT

The wheels are finally turning again on Inferno, the third part of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, with Ron Howard set to begin filming in April 2015.

Tom Hanks will be returning once more to reprise his role as the aforementioned Harvard professor, with the shoot scheduled to take place in Italy in the new year.

This latest instalment in the series will see Langdon grappling with another mysterious riddle, this time influenced by Inferno, the first book of Dante’s epic poem, Divine Comedy.

Needless to say, said riddle pulls him down another rabbit hole of secret societies, cryptically encoded messages and sinister adversaries, as was the case in The Da Vinci Code and Angels And Demons.

The film had initially been slated for a release date on 18 December 2015, but with cameras only set to roll in April, expect that to be shunted back to 2016 in due course.

Liam Neeson stars in two new TV spots for A Walk Among The Tombstones: watch now

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:13:00 GMT

A pair of new TV spots have arrived online for A Walk Among The Tombstones, in which Liam Neeson plays an alcoholic ex-cop working as a shady private investigator.

When Dan Stevens’ heroin trafficker enlists his help to look into the kidnap of his wife, Neeson is unfortunately unable to prevent her death. However, what he can do is help serve up some revenge.

So it is that Neeson, Stevens and his brother all team up to take out the sadistic criminals responsible, before they kill again…

Take a look at the new teasers, below…

It’s unfortunate that it’s now impossible to watch Liam Neeson threaten somebody over the phone without thinking of Taken, but that aside, this looks like a pleasingly grimy thriller that seems to skirt close to horror territory at times.

Directed by Scott Frank and adapted from Lawrence Block’s series of novels, A Walk Among The Tombstones co-stars Boyd Holbrook, David Harbour and Sebastian Roché, and will open in the UK on 18 September 2014.

Rumour: Jack Huston to play Doctor Strange?

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 06:47:00 GMT

A new name has been added to the list of potential stars for Marvel’s Doctor Strange, with Jack Huston the latest actor supposedly on the studio’s wish-list.

According to This Is Infamous, Huston is reportedly “under consideration” for the role, although whether or not any talks have taken place remains unclear.

Huston is the most recent in a long line of names to be linked to the part, including Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Hardy.

Most recently, it had been thought that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to take the role, although that rumour doesn’t appear to have developed any further.

Huston isn’t quite as big a name as some of those others mentioned above, but Kevin Feige has always sounded fairly flexible on what exactly the studio is looking for…

“A movie star is not required, but that doesn’t mean a movie star wouldn’t be great,” said Feige back in February. “It just depends.”

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange will open in the US on 8 July 2016, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.

Extended red-band trailer arrives for horror film As Above So Below: watch now

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 06:31:00 GMT

An extended red-band trailer has arrived online for As Above So Below, John Dowdle’s nerve-shredding horror movie set among the catacombs of Paris.

The film follows a team of explorers hoping to expose the secrets of the previously uncharted network of tunnels, only to discover more lurking down there than they had bargained for.

Needless to say, the enclosed spaces soon become the least of our heroes' worries, as various horrors from their respective pasts soon make themselves known in shocking fashion.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Not one for the claustrophobic moviegoer then, with the horribly enclosed setting serving to amp up the tension even before anything remotely supernatural has taken place…

Directed by Dowdle and co-starring Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman and Edwin Hodge, As Above So Below will open in the UK on 29 August 2014.

Ridley Scott updates on Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 06:11:00 GMT

Ridley Scott has been discussing progress on sci-fi sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus, and has revealed that both projects are further along than might be expected.

Blade Runner 2 is written and is damn good,” says Scott. “Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years - despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.”

Scott went on to confirm that the plan is for him to direct the film, and that he hopes to begin work on the film as soon as he is done with next project, The Martian.

As to whether he will also direct Prometheus 2, it could be an issue that comes down to scheduling. “That’s the problem,” he admits. “I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”

We wouldn’t be surprised to see him hand over the directorial reins to somebody else for Prometheus 2, but the good news is that with both films written, we should see another Scott-influenced sci-fi sooner rather than later…

Jeremy Renner says Hawkeye could appear in Captain America 3

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 05:58:00 GMT

Jeremy Renner has been talking about his forthcoming schedule, and has revealed that he may be reprising his role as Hawkeye in the next Captain America film.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
was a heavily S.H.I.E.L.D.-centric movie, with major roles for both Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, and it sounds as though that focus may remain for the third outing…

“There are rumblings of Captain America 3,” says Renner. “I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man! I’m trying to stay home and I can’t.”

How exactly he’ll fit into proceedings remains unclear, but how Hawkeye and Captain America relate in the next Avengers movie might help clarify the setup somewhat…

At present, Joe and Anthony Russo are hard at work on the script for Captain America 3, with the film scheduled to open in the UK on 6 May 2016.

Ben Affleck stars in first Gone Girl TV spot: watch now

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 05:45:00 GMT

The first TV spot has arrived online for Gone Girl, in which Ben Affleck’s supposedly doting husband finds himself the focus of suspicion when his wife goes missing.

Despite Rosamund Pike’s voiceover explaining how she has come to fear her husband, this latest spot is told largely from Affleck’s perspective, as circumstances conspire to seemingly indicate his guilt.

Happily, there aren’t too many major plot points given away here, so non-readers of Gillian Flynn’s source novel needn’t fear having any of the twists and turns spoiled for them…

Take a look at the new spot, below…

David Fincher’s signature murk is all over this one, with even Tyler Perry coming across as gritty and hard-boiled. With a sterling ensemble cast in attendance, it promises to be quite the ride…

Co-starring Neil Patrick Harris, Scoot McNairy and Kim Dickens, Gone Girl will open in the UK on 3 October 2014.

FrightFest 2014: Among The Living reaction

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:43:00 GMT

FrightFest favourites Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (Inside, Livid) return with a brooding, atmospheric chiller in the throes of an identity crisis.

One of the most eagerly-anticipated films of FrightFest 2014 thanks to its directors' previous credits, Among The Living is a strong contender for having the most upsetting opening scene of the fest.

A man watches a TV report about a chemical plant disaster before his pregnant wife beats him over the head with a baseball bat. Storming upstairs, the woman then attacks their son before stabbing herself in the belly...

Skip forward a few years and we're in the company of 14-year-old ne'er-do-wells Victor, Tom and Dan, who stumble across an old, abandoned film studio that's home to a formidable masked figure who's just kidnapped a woman.

In ATL's strongest segment, the boys attempt to evade the figure before stumbling across an underground den like something out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, replete with Christmas lights and a movie graveyard set.

Boasting Bustillo and Maury's trademark gorgeous cinematography, there's no faulting ATL's atmosphere, but the rest of the film is less successful.

Drawing on everything from Halloween to The Hills Have Eyes and Argento, it's no surprise that Among The Living is something of a muddle.

Those expecting the Bustillo/Maury brand of ultra-violence are well-served by the opening five minutes, but the directors become unexpectedly gore-shy during the second act stalk-n-slash segment before going all out in a logic-shattering finale.

Had Among The Living had the courage of its convictions, this could have been one of the fest's most upsetting and savage entries. Instead, it just can't decide what it wants to be.

FrightFest 2014: The Samurai reaction

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:15:00 GMT

A dark German fairytale that dabbles in cross-dressing, latent sexuality and – yes – katana-wielding, The Samurai is one of the most daring and stylish, if flawed, films we've caught at FrightFest.

Awash in shadow-dappled imagery and boasting a pair of fantastic lead performances, the story begins with police officer Jakob (Michel Diercks) going into the woods to leave a sack of bloody meat for a wolf.

Later, he receives a mysterious package for a man living in the woods. When he goes to deliver it, he encounters The Samurai (Pit Bukowski), a sinewy cross-dresser with a bloody vendetta against Jakob's hometown.

Blood and boobs are pretty much synonymous with FrightFest (and horror in general), which makes The Samurai a refreshingly masculine presence at this year's festival.

Its dedication to exploring male sexuality is commendable, and for a while, The Samurai's dangerous, ponderous atmosphere carries it through the lack of an obvious plot as The Samurai hacks his way through the locals Jakob's sworn to protect.

The film is flawed, though. Director Till Kleinert is fixated on his central metaphor and never plays up the mythological elements enough to excuse some of the leaps in logic.

There's also a sense that the audience is being kept at arm's length for no reason other than to keep the metaphor intact.

The Samurai's remoteness will no doubt frustrate casual cinema-goers, despite the buckets of blood. In the plus column, it has some hugely inventive imagery, and Diercks and Bukowski share blood-boiling chemistry.

In short: a flawed, beautifully-crafted oddity that suggests Kleinert and his stars are ones to keep an eye on.

Creepy first clip arrives from The Babadook: watch now

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 09:31:00 GMT

The first clip has arrived from Australian horror sensation The Babadook, in which Essie Davis reads the story of titular bogeyman, Mr. Babadook.

Davis plays Amelia, a newly single mother haunted by the violent death of her husband, and struggling to cope with a young son plagued by a mysterious and sinister figure.

When an eerie storybook turns up in the house, the boy is convinced it tells the story of the man from his dreams. And while Amelia is initially sceptical, strange occurrences start to sway her opinion…

Take a look at the new clip, below…

It’s a nastily effective little teaser, with a significant amount of tension created by little more than the turning pages of a storybook. Consider us well and truly intrigued…

Directed by Jennifer Kent and co-starring Noah Wiseman, Barbara West and Daniel Henshall, The Babadook will open in the UK on 24 October 2014.


Marc Webb talks Sinister Six plans

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 09:11:00 GMT

Marc Webb has been discussing plans for the forthcoming Sinister Six movie, with a special section of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 blu-ray dedicated to what we can expect going forward.

“Here’s the real story,” says Webb, calling back to the first film’s post-credits scene. “At the end of the first movie, there was some lightning with the man in the shadows … there was an idea that maybe this would be the Electro character, but, again, we shot it and it kind of emerged into some other situation.”

“The man in the hat is now, we think of him as The Gentleman who is a benefactor of the Sinister Six. They all emerge from Oscorp and that they are corralled by The Gentleman… they are sort of the mercenaries of Oscorp and the most unruly, beastly set of characters.”

And speaking of Oscorp, Webb also confirms that Norman Osborn will make a return, thanks to a handy cryogenic head-case, allowing him to survive the events of the last film.

Just how he will interact with “The Gentleman” remains to be seen, and indeed, the confirmed lineup of the Six itself has also yet to be confirmed…

“It’s tricky because we’re not exactly sure if all those people are gonna be in The Sinister Six, or even in the next movie,” says Webb. “Like the Mysterio mask, I just think looks really cool.  And I love Mysterio, but we haven’t all agreed on it, but I just forced it in because I thought it looked cool.”

Worth taking that post-credit sting with a pinch of salt then… The Sinister Six will be directed by Drew Goddard and opens in the US on 11 November 2016.
