These International Far From Home Banners Offer Up a Great Look at Spidey's Variable Wardrobe

That boy does love a costume change, doesn’t he?

A set of banners released to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home showcase all three of the costumes Spidey seems to be rocking in the new movie (blue one from Homecoming not included, as it seems to not feature all that heavily).

Neither Kevin Feige Nor Brie Larson Wanted Ms. Marvel's 'Bathing Suit' Costume in Captain Marvel

Neither Kevin Feige Nor Brie Larson Wanted Ms. Marvel's 'Bathing Suit' Costume in Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel’s ensemble has seen some, let’s just say, changes over the past several years. One of Carol Danvers’ most-recent comics costumes, designed by Jamie McKelvie for Kelly Sue DeConnick’s 2012 series, inspired Brie Larson’s movie ensemble . But according to a recent interview, Larson didn’t want the more skimpy predecessors going anywhere near her.

Seems like Team TARDIS got some nice new clothes for Christmas.

After it came to light recently that Doctor Who would be forgoing its usual Christmas special —a tradition it’s kept going since 2005—in favor of an adventure on New Year’s Day instead, the BBC has now revealed the first fleeting details about an event it’s desperately trying to convince people to call “Who Years Day.”

Out of all the heroic Titans introduced in DC Universe’s new live-action series, Anna Diop’s Starfire received the most attention and outsized backlash . That was in large part due to how much her portrayal was aesthetically different than the character’s comic book counterpart.

Between Diop being a black woman , and Titans’ Starfire sporting a revealing dress accented with a fur coat as...
