Marvel fans were surprised today when leaked set photos from the production of Spider-Man: Far From Home revealed Peter Parker would be donning yet another suit in addition to the previously leaked stealth suit seen on set in Europe.
Naturally, fans have a lot to say about the newly revealed black and red costume seen in set photos as Spider-Man swings into the air with Zendaya’s Michelle. The costume, which could be based on unused concept art from the previous Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is drawing Superior Spider-Man costume comparisons from fans.
You can check out some of the reactions below.

The leaked (new) Spider-Man costume looks somewhat similar to the a piece of concept art before Captain America: Civil War. There's more red in the actual one, but they looked similar. #spidermanfarfromhome pic.twitter.com/JTZfrSvgb8

This is a great homage to that incredibly short lived era of Spider-Man costumes, back when blue was used for shading black objects in the 60s comics but people just thought it was dark blue. Amazing! pic.twitter.com/mMtIk3FsFP

It might be my least favorite live action Spider-Man suit

Aw come on, man. It's MCU Spider-Man, I gotta find SOMETHING to be excited about. Plus, of course he was gonna switch costumes every movie, Cap and Iron Man have gone through like dozens of looks. It's sort of an MCU tradition. https://t.co/E2MIcIid5I

New suit from Far From Home.
He’s got the Steve Ditko colors & maybe it’s just me, but I see a bit of Superior Spider-Man in there with the gauntlets / web shooters.
I like when Spider-Man has red & black on his costume. pic.twitter.com/a8jX5VIIy0

To those who are complaining about Spider-Man's new suit, here's what his original looked like. It's black with blue highlights. That's just how they drew black things back then.
Batman also had black with blue highlights in his costume. pic.twitter.com/yTaZ9X3qIL

Name one character in the MCU that hasn’t had constant costume changes.
Spider-Man has been in the Homecoming suit for Civil War, Homecoming, the beginning of Infinity War, And the first half of this.

I like the new suit for Spider-Man Far From Home. It has a Superior Spider-Man feel to me and the white spider I feel like is inspired by Insomniac Spider-Man. pic.twitter.com/EvVTEO5hFG

Could There Be A Movie Based On Online Bingo?
One of the most anticipated movies of 2017 is Molly’s Game. Starring Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba, the movie centres on poker and the effect it can have. Jessica Chastain plays the role of a young skier named Molly Bloom who becomes a successful entrepreneur after hosting an international poker game with high stakes and participated by politicians, actors and financial titans. She then becomes a target of an FBI investigation, with the movie taking several twists and turns. The film is based on the memoir of Molly Bloom’s Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker.
Movies based on high-stakes poker
Molly’s Game promises to be a hugely exciting and intricate film about high-stakes poker in Hollywood. Like most great movies with depth, it tells a story, a story about how something as fun as poker can have a massive and rippling effect. Poker is a very popular in Hollywood, and Molly’s Game is yet another film in the long line of movies to be created centred on the game.
Among the many, many movies based on poker are Rounders (1998), Maverick (1994), The Grand (2007) and Deal (2008). Molly’s Game could be the best of them all, especially as the cast is brilliant. Jessica Chastain has starred in Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Zero Dark Thirty and The Martian, while Idris Elba is known worldwide for his work in Luther, American Gangster and Thor. Kevin Costner, of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and The Untouchables, also plays a role in Molly’s Game.
Hollywood stars with poker enthusiasm
The popularity of poker is not limited to on-screen drama; a number of well-known Hollywood A-listers play the game in “real life”. Gabe Kaplan starred in the American sitcom, Welcome Back, Kotter, back in the 1970s, but these days he ie better known for being a professional poker player. The 72-year-old has won over $1 million in poker tournaments. Another well-known Hollywood star involved in professional poker is 41-year-old Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire. Ben Affleck, one of the best actors of his generation, has also participated in high-stakes poker.
With online gaming brands focusing more and more on bingo, and in fact some of them, such as Sun Bingo offering bingo rooms and slot games based on fairytales and reality TV, bingo has been gaining popularity in recent years. In fact, it’s also popular among Hollywood celebrities. Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, of The Mask of Zorro fame, entertains her family with custom-made bingo cards every Christmas, while Gladiator star Russell Crowe worked as a bingo caller in New Zealand in his teens. While Courteney Cox has hosted online bingo games in her home, English television personality Sharon Osbourne has been in TV campaigns for online bingo.
The increasing popularity of online poker has resulted in several movies being made on the game, so it is not foolhardy to think that one day not in the distant future a movie could be made centred on online bingo. After all, with over 300,000 people enjoying the game in the UK alone and spending more than £6.8 billion per year, online bingo is one of the most popular activities among the public. There is a market out there to be explored in terms of a movie based on online bingo.
A movie based on online bingo?
One of the ideas that could be explored is Catherine Zeta-Jones’s story. The 47-year-old’s family won £100,000 in a bingo competition when she was a kid, and that enabled her to pursue her dream of becoming an actor. Of course, for the film to be a success, it cannot be based entirely on her story; the script can take inspiration from her tale and make it into a tragedy.
Another idea could be about 40-something single woman who has played bingo all her life without any success. Suddenly one day she wins the jackpot, and life takes a different turn for her. Melissa McCarthy, who made her name in Gilmore Girls before going on to star in superhit Hollywood movies such as Identity Thief, The Hangover Part III and Spy, would be perfect for the lead role.
There have been bingo scenes in movies already. In Bad Grandpa, Johnny Knoxville tests everyone’s patience during a game of bingo, while in Hotel Transylvania a different and amusing variant of the game is played. The success of such movies suggest that there is room for a film based on bingo to be made. If thought out properly with the right cast, it could be a superb hit movie worldwide.
