MAX LVL Radio: Sunflower – Post Malone, Swae Lee


The first single from the surprisingly deep soundtrack for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is a relaxing track that will get you nodding along with it, as well as excited for the film. The soundtrack itself hits theaters the same day as the film, this Friday. On top of that, we’re also finally getting that unreleased Vince Staples track from the very first teaser trailer released almost a year ago.

MAX LVL is a curated selection of single songs currently available on the official Ph LEVEL Spotify playlist.


Spider-Gwen Animated Spin-Off In The Works


Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hasn’t even been released and Sony is confident that the film will be received well. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sony Pictures Animation has tapped the showrunners behind Dreamworks’ Voltron: Legendary Defender, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, to expand the animated corner of the Spider-hero world.

Dos Santos has been picked up to direct the sequel to Into The Spider-Verse, which is being penned by Wonder Woman 1984 scribe David Callaham. Montgomery, on the other hand, is now working on a spin-off film for fan-favorite character Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen. With that kind of commitment, Sony must certainly be proud of the film that’s being released in a few short weeks.

New Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Trailer

Sony Pictures Animation has debuted a fantastic, new trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse giving us our first look at Spider-Man Noir, and Spider-Ham, as well as a peek into what the story of the film is set to be. After the Kingpin uses a super-collider to open the door to other dimensions, reality begins to collapse, and only Spider-Man(s) can save it.

Shameik Moore (The Get Down), voices Miles Morales in the film. He is joined by Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson,  Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, with Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir.

Kraven the Hunter Film Officially in the Works


Collider is reporting that Sony Pictures has tapped Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) to pen a script for a Kraven the Hunter film. The long-time Spider-Man villain, real name is Sergei Kravinoff, was an aristocrat who became obsessed with big game hunting. He considers Spider-Man the ultimate prey, and the two have traded blows several times.

Kraven the Hunter is expected to join Venom in “Sony’s Marvel Universe” alongside Silver & Black, which was put on hold indefinitely a few months ago, most likely to gauge the success of Venom.

Numan Acar Cast as The Chameleon?


It’s been rumored that classic Spider-Man villain, The Chameleon, would be showing up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now it seems we’re a little closer to that confirmation. Deadline is reporting that Numan Acar (Homeland) has been added to the cast of the sequel, though no details on his role have been revealed, we know that he’ll be playing a character named Dmitri, which could signify his role as Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon.

This is still speculation, but given the that Acar can speak numerous languages, and the globe-trotting nature of the film, it could certainly be true.

Nick Fury Returning for Spider-Man: Far From Home?


It would seem that Nick Fury has more to do after his return in Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed over on his Instagram that he’s in the United Kingdom, and that he’s making his return as Nick Fury. However, it looks like the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director will be rocking some facial hair, confirming this role likely won’t involve Captain Marvel, but instead the currently filming friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

How the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will play into the story has yet to be seen, but seeing as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film after Avengers 4, meant to lead us into a new chapter of the MCU, it makes sense to see the man that started it all.

R.I.P. Steve Ditko


The famed creator of many of the greatest characters in comic book history – including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, The Question, and Squirrel Girl –  Steve Ditko, has passed at the age of 90. Ditko, despite being one of the most notable creators in all of comic books, was notoriously reclusive, having never done an interview, and with few pictures of him existing.

Steve Ditko will be remembered forever as one of the greatest, and he will be sorely missed.

Nicolas Cage Cast in Into The Spider-Verse


The cast of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse continues to grow and become more and more exciting, as reports are saying that veteran genre actor, Nicolas Cage, has been cast as the mysterious Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming animated film. Cage joins Shamiek Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, and Jake Johnson as Peter Parker.

We should expect to hear more later this month as the film should have a fairly large presence at this year’s SDCC.

Jared Leto Set to Star in Morbius The Living Vampire


Academy Award-winner Jared Leto has officially signed on to star as Dr. Michael Morbius, a.k.a. Morbius the Living Vampire, in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff, Morbius The Living Vampire. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) will direct the film with a script from the writing duo of Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, whose past credits include Power RangersThe Last Witch Hunter, and Dracula Untold.

The film currently has no release date set, but we should expect to hear more news out of San Diego Comic-Con alongside new information on Venom, and perhaps even the newly announced Silk.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Revealed as Sequel Title


Tom Holland has let slip another secret, which has since been confirmed by Kevin Feige. The official title for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is now Spider-Man: Far From Home. The script is finished, and Tom Holland used that to reveal the title on Instagram video while at ACE Comic-Con Seattle, this weekend.

The title confirms the rumored globe-trotting adventure the film is set to consist of, with Jake Gyllenhaal playing Mysterio, and Michael Keaton reprising his role as the Vulture.

Sony Developing a Silk Spin-Off Film


According to The Wrap, Sony is hoping to expand on the hype of their upcoming Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse films, as they begin development on a Spider-Man spin-off film starring Cindy Moon, aka Silk. Silk was introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3 #1 as a character that was bit by the same radioactive spider as Peter Parker,and gave her the same powers as him.

Currently, there is no script or director attached, but we should expect to hear more on the project, soon. Perhaps as early as Comic-Con.
