Fans of Marvel's wall-crawler, Spider-Man, already can't wait to see the superhero returning to the big screen, which will happen first in the upcoming Anthony and Joe Russo's film, "Captain America: Civil War." After which, the web-slinger will then be featured in his own spin-off movie in 2017 under the direction of Jon Watts.
Much of the reboot project is still shrouded in mystery except for the fact that the next Spidey alter-ego is Tom Holland. The hero will be younger, more of a high-school age version, when he meet the Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Captain America 3. Besides that, everything is left to wild speculations especially as to who he will be facing in Watts' film.
The most rooted among the list of characters is Sergei Kravinoff, a.k.a. Kraven the Hunter. A report from Screen Rant back in August cited a rumor from a major film scooper, Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood. more >>
The city of Newark plans to honor the Rev. Ron Christian, who was found dead last month inside his office at the Christian Love Baptist megachurch in Irvington, New Jersey, by renaming a street after him.
The Newark Municipal Council has voted unanimously to dedicate a street to the late pastor, and will be asking his family to select the location, according to NJ.com.
Earlier this month, about 2,000 mourners gathered at the memorial held in Newark for the 51-year-old pastor, a former heroin addict and convict who turned to Christ after he was released from prison in 1997. more >>
The recent racial unrest at the University of Missouri reignited the growing controversy over the existence and nature of "white privilege."
As I've already written, most people on both sides of this debate tend to talk past each other, inflaming passions and ultimately setting race relations back. Skeptics of white privilege point to the real progress that has been made in this country, including the success of the black middle and upper classes. Meanwhile white privilege "true believers" point to videos of police brutality, mass incarceration rates and a multitude of other social ills that seem to disproportionately plague the black and brown.
If race relations in our country are to move forward, I believe it is very important that people on both sides of the debate make time to understand the point of view of those who disagree with them. more >>
NBC's hit drama thriller TV series "Chicago Fire" Season 4 returns this week with yet another exciting episode that will see the station's chief getting into trouble, Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) obtaining some substantial information that could reverse his current predicament, and the rest of the Chicago FD crew attending a special occasion.
The synopsis posted on The Futon Critic for the episode titled "Sharp Elbows" says that Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) might find himself in hot water when a new female neighbor (Ilfenesh Hadera) steps up to make a slew of terrible accusations against him. The officer already has the idea that someone is setting him up for a crime that he never committed in the first place. Fans should expect Boden trying his best to think of ways to get out of this sticky situation.
While trouble is coming for the Battalion 25 chief officer, the Squad 3 lieutenant might be getting some hope in the dire situation he's currently in. Viewers may remember last week's altercation between him and Captain Dallas Patterson (Brian J. White). Their war even put a person's life at risk in that episode. The argument further put Severide in a very disadvantaged situation when he was punished for insubordination. more >>

Meanwhile, in real life, Deschanel is on maternity leave to take care of her new daughter Elsie Otter.
