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.

Gwyneth Paltrow has finally released the photographs from her extremely private wedding to TV producer Brad Falchuck, and it's safe to say we are HELLA jealous.

The 46-year-old actress and her beau tied the knot at her Hamptons home on September 29, and the pictures intimately and elegantly display the best day of their lives.

Paltrow posted 47 photos from her wedding weekend to her lifestyle website, Goop, on Friday, writing:

"Took me a minute to get it together, but at long last, for those who have requested, a little look inside the best day of our lives," she also teased on Instagram, sharing a photo from after she said "I do."

One of the most striking images is of course, her wedding gown, designed by Valentino Couture. We are absolutely floored by how beautiful Gwyneth looks, as well as her daughter in Monique Lhuillier.

The bride wore a custom Valentino Couture lace dress with feminine cap sleeves, an illusion neckline and open-back. Paltrow has often trusted Valentino with her red-carpet looks.

The timeless design  was paired with a long tulle veil, Paltrow also kept her bridal beauty look natural with relatively soft makeup.

Famous faces are never too far away from the camera: Jerry Seinfeld, Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden, Robert Downey Jr. and Steven Spielberg are all featured in the imagery.

Long-term friend Cameron Diaz is seen getting her make-up done, and Downey Jr. also gave a gushing speech in honour of his Iron Man co-star.

Heartwarming snaps of Paltrow's daughter Apple, 14 and son and Moses, 12 were posted to the website as well as photos of Falchuck's two adorable children Brody and Isabella.

The ceremony was described in vivid detail on Goop:

"The revelry started the night before with a rehearsal dinner, where wedding guests dined alfresco under a canopy of bistro lights," Goop posted about the wedding festivities.

"And for the big day: perfect weather, a superlative dinner, a dance party for the ages, and a dress that defies adjectives. Hours later, when the last guest went home and the last champagne flute was cleared away, the day ended as it began — with beauty, love, and very happy people."

The couple's first date was held at one of Mario Carbone’s restaurants, and the chef was asked to cook for their wedding to achieve a very special, full-circle moment.

Following the "I Do's", Paltrow changed into a Stella McCartney jumpsuit for a night of '80s party jams. The envy is so real right now.

The couple are absolutely beaming as they celebrate their love surrounded by 70 of their closest friends and family. 

After the big day, the Falchucks went on a mini honeymoon to Umbria Paris, following which Paltrow travelled to London for the grand opening of Goop’s first international store.

Her close friends Stella McCartney, Valentino, Liv Tyler and Demi Moore were present at the bash to celebrate Goop's presence across the Atlantic.

The couple first met during her guest appearance on Falchuck's TV show Glee in 2010, but only began officially dating in 2014.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple, our invite must have gotten lost in the post?

Tom Hiddleston and Swifty fans alike were delighted this week when Tom joined Instagram.

But no one was more delighted the Robert Downey Jr. He played a little joke on his Marvel co-star that we're sure he's been waiting ages to do.

Mocking Tom's 'I <3 TS' top, Rob shared the picture and said: “Join me in welcoming the biggest T. Stark fan of them all to Instagram! @twhiddleston.”

But now, Tom has had his say on the whole thing.

"Robert and I are very close and I got to know him working on the Avengers in 2011," he told the LA Times.

"There's a lot of mutual affection. I feel like it's an expression of mutual admiration. It's great. He's very sweet."

Tom added: "And within the Marvel universe there's a lot of that going on – a lot of throwing paper aeroplanes."

However, Robert took his love even further yesterday. Just look:

(Tom's first IG photo was of him dressed as Loki).

These lads the bomb.



Tom Hiddleston has joined Instagram – and it didn't make anymore more happy than Robert Downey Jr.

Robert took this as a chance to take the piss out of Tom and his infamous "I <3 T.S." t-shirt.

He wrote on the social media app: "Join me in welcoming the biggest T. Stark fan of them all to Instagram! @twhiddleston."

It was a small and sly, but great T.S. joke.

However, the joke made thousands of people flock to Tom's new page, and even though only one picture is uploaded, he's already gained more than 500,000 followers.


He's back!

Mr Hiddleston captioned his first picture: "He's back!," as he's dressed as Loki for his new movie.

We hope this means loads of HiddleSwift pics.

Robert Downey Jr. is a dad for the third time after his wife gave birth recently!

Though no date of the baby’s birth is certain yet, it has been confirmed that Susan Downey gave birth to a girl in LA.

The little girl will be the second child for Susan and Robert who are also parents to 2-year-old son Exton. Robert also has a 21-year-old son, Indio from a previous relationship.

Robert recently joked that his wife was “about to pop” before saying how tough the pregnancy had been on him (we’re sure she just loved that!): “the second pregnancy has been extraordinarily tough for me. Self-prescribed mandatory bed rest was of some benefit. At least my milk is finally coming in.”

Robert and Susan, who is a film producer, have been married since 2005. 

Congratulations to the family on their new arrival – we can’t wait to hear what they name her!

Avenger fans can rejoice, as Robert Downey Jr., who is famous for playing Iron Man, has finally joined Twitter.

Of course, the 49-year-old actor kept his introduction onto the social media site simple, by only posting two tweets so far.

The Avenger star’s first tweet,  involved a picture of himself holding a sign of his Twitter handle “@RobertDowneyJr”, which had  the caption: “Talk to me Twitter.”

Robert went onto to thank fans for all the Twitter love, but questioned how they were able to keep their thoughts to 140 characters.

Of course what we love, is the actor’s Twitter bio, which really says all: “You know who I am.”

Welcome to the madness Robert, we can’t wait to see what you are going to tweet next.




We’re swooning.
