avengers endgame

If our hearts felt cracked and fragile before, they're smashed to smithereens now.

Just weeks on from initial reports, the Spider-Man situation remains woefully the same after Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vincinquerra confirmed that “for the moment the door is closed” on the MCU return.

Marvel Studios and Sony's financial talks have broken down, and now Tom Holland's Peter Parker will no longer be part of the MCU, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige now absent from Spidey's next movie.

Many fans were hoping that the impasse could be overcome, but it seems that Sony is doubling down on distancing themselves from Disney after the entertainment giant asked for 30 percent of the earnings from the next few Spidey films.

To put this in perspective, they were only earning five percent before…so it's quite the leap on Disney's part to be fair. 

Speaking at Variety’s Entertainment and Technology summit, Sony Pictures CEO dispelled fan's queries on the superhero;  “We had a great run with Kevin Feige on Spider-Man movies,” he said.

“We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out… the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

He continued: “Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well. I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”

Sony seem confident that following the box office success of Venom and the widespread critical and public acclaim for the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, it can spin its own compelling web of spider tales.

Director Jon Favreau, the MCU the filmmaker behind Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and actor of Happy Hogan in Homecoming and Far From Home – still hopes that an agreement can be made.

“I’ve been talking to everybody about it… I’m cautiously optimistic,” he said at Variety’s summit.

“I think it’s a long way away and I think the collaboration has been really strong up to this point so I’m hopeful that there’s a way for us all to play together going forward.”

PLEASE solve this tangled web of a problem, Jon. We can't handle the idea of the adorable Tom Holland not featuring in the MCU, he stole scenes in the Avengers as Iron Man's protégé.

It's official: Chris Hemsworth is putting the breaks on his Hollywood acting, and the world is in mourning.

We have to say, this news broke our hearts into a million tiny, miniscule shards of glass.

The 35-year-old Avengers: Endgame and Men in Black star made the revelation to The Daily Telegraph, telling the paper that he's turning down all projects for the rest of 2019.

Why? Family, of course. Damn it Chris, WE ARE YOUR FAMILY. Your work partners-in-crime, your loyal fans, your humble servants. How could you do this to us?

With that dramatic outburst over, let's carry on by expanding on his reasoning for spending more time with his young family:

"This year I probably won't shoot anything. I just want to be at home now with my kids," said the dad(dy), who shares three children with wife Elsa Pataky.

He has a seven-year-old daughter named India and five-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha, who live with him in Byron Bay, Australia

"They are at a very important age," he added. "They are still young and they are aware when I leave more than before."

Chris has been on our screens for pretty much the entirety of 2019, starring in blockbusters and reboots which have garnered huge revenue.

His turn as an overweight and alcohol-soaked, depressed Thor showed his comedic timing in the final Avengers movie. The chilled-out Aussie has always valued family and admitted his money makes him "feel gross".

GQ magazine interviewed the actor last year, who according to Forbes earned an incredible $64.5 million since the start of 2018. He explained his distaste with having too much money:

"I remember saving up for a surfboard when I was younger. The surfboard was 600 bucks and I saved up for a whole year with Dad's help," he recalled. "I didn't even want to surf on it for fear of damaging it. 

His new Byron Bay home is rumoured to be worth a staggering $20 million.

His wife told Australian Harper's Bazaar last month that Byron "is a different world":

"Here, there's a disconnect. It was a dream I'd have this kind of life. It has been our means of slowing down and made me learn how to be happy without all that. To stop worrying about trying to find another job. It makes you connect with your family. It's about teaching them to enjoy this instead."

We hope we'll still see one of our favourite actors on the screen in another while, once he gets his break from the craziness of Hollywood and stardom. We love a family man.

Zoe Saldana has revealed snippets of her personal life, specifically how she raises her three sons with husband Marco Perego Saldana.

The Avengers actress, who plays Gamora in Guardians Of The Galaxy, shares four-year-old twins Cy and Bowie with Marco, as well as two-year-old Zen.

She opened up about how she raises her little boys, revealing that she was attempting to keep her household a "gender-neutal environment" with male and female inspirations involved in their lives.

"I’m always gonna be honest and that is always the best way to welcome healthy and truthful discourse, especially around parenthood," the actress told Us Weekly this week.

"The twins made a comment two weeks ago like, “Boys are stronger than girls,” because they’re in that stage of comparisons. And you have to take a moment and kind of put together an answer that they will understand," she continued.

She wants her boys to be a "blank slate", rather than being influenced by gender stereotypes before choosing their own identities.

Her aim is, "To not bring all this charge that you have as an adult and as a woman into their lives." She opened up last June about allowing her sons to pick their own method of doing things, with Zoe leading by example with her partner.

"We have a very gender-neutral environment where my husband participates in a lot of tasks that were normally given to women and vice versa," she previously told Us Weekly. "I get to do a lot of male things, which is, I don’t know, put the TV together, fix things that break," she said.

"We’re sort of a very gender-fluid household. I think it’s important to raise boys in that environment, and girls as well," the 40-year-old mused.

Zoe has often done things in an unconventional way, shunning 'tradition', such as her husband Marco taking her surname when they wed in 2013.

Saying he liked the name, Zoe recently added:

"He wanted to really represent being a part of my family and represent my father’s legacy. He respected the fact that he didn’t want me to have to give up my name just because that’s the norm."

Saldana was interviewed by People in 2018 and touched upon the idea of gender and parenting;

“When you look at parenting, the whole thing about matriarchy and patriarchy, and Daddy’s little girl and Mama’s boys ― my husband and I find that completely ludicrous and absolutely unhealthy for the upbringing of a child."

“You’re giving them a very distorted and limited view on what a female role is supposed to be in a family and what a male role is supposed to be."
