One of the most fascinating things in the lead-up to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War was the cast admitting very few of them had seen a full script. The reason, according to directors the Russo Brothers, was to cut down on the chance of spoilers leaking out.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular dosage of all things merchandise. This week, we’ve got claws out for a very cool Iron Spider figure, Lego’s descent into chibi-figurine madness continues, and Overwatch’s premiere edgelord slinks into action figure form for the first time.

The first trailer for the biggest, most anticipated Marvel movie ever is finally here.
The climactic mid-air battle between Spider-Man and the Vulture aboard an Avengers cargo plane in Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the highlights of an already excellent movie. Turns out it was entirely realized using motion capture and computer-generated characters. Did you actually think a plane with a cloaking…
If you saw Spider-Man: Homecoming and want some more answers, you’ve come to the right place. Don’t worry, this isn’t one of Rob’s FAQs, but we can still fill in some of the gaps, point out things you may have missed, and tell you everything else you need to know—with help from Homecoming’s director, star, and…
Spider-Man: Homecoming is not your typical Marvel movie—and that’s exactly what makes it great.
Part of what makes Spider-Man Spider-Man is his ingenuity. His ability to make things on his own and be an independent superhero. Which is why some fans were concerned when trailers for Spider-Man Homecoming made it seem like Tony Stark did most of the work for him.
The Battle of New York at the end of The Avengers is a crucial moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s the moment the whole world changed. And when it happened, a little boy named Peter Parker was just a few miles away in Queens.
For years, it was one of the better fan theories out there, and now it’s confirmed to be true: Peter Parker was in Iron Man 2.
Tom Holland might be swinging into theaters as Marvel and Sony’s new Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming— but as a working actor, he’s still got other movies to make. Sadly, there’s one he won’t be a part of, and it could be because of this bizarre audition with Andy Serkis.
Sony’s long-in-gestation adaptation of the smash hit video game series Uncharted has apparently gone under a major reworking. It’s now a prequel series set before the events of the games, and its hero Nathan Drake will be a youngster played by Spider-Man himself.
In the first clip from Spider-Man Homecoming, Peter Parker’s best friend is us.
While the chances are very slim that Spider-Man and the Punisher will ever cross paths directly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can take comfort in the idea that actor Tom Holland played a significant role behind-the-scenes in helping Jon Bernthal get cast as Frank Castle.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man’s suit is built by Tony Stark, which means it has tons of new features and upgrades—more like Iron Man’s get-up than the Spider-suit we’re all familiar with. On our set visit, we learned a lot more about the superhero’s new outfit.
When you’re the sixth Spider-Man movie in 15 years, you better be able to distinguish yourself from what came before. In the case of Spider-Man: Homecoming, everything is different. Almost nothing you remember from the previous films will return.
One thing no one ever wants to see again is Spider-Man’s origin. We’ve got it. And maybe you didn’t get it from the trailer, but Spider-Man Homecoming is a whole new kind of Spider-Man. It’s not about his physical origin, it’s about his mental one. And the teaser poster hammers that point home.
In Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers are going to meet the Guardians of the Galaxy. We all more or less knew that, but to hear Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige come out and say it in this brand new teaser video will make the hairs on your arm stand up straight.
I can think of very few people who would voluntarily go back to high school. On the other hand, English actor Tom Holland didn’t have any actual memories of the American high school experience to fall back on for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will likely be out before the end of the month, but audiences at a Brazilian convention got an early sneak today—and it came with a surprising revelation.
