Superheroes–we mean actors that play superheroes–are uniting! Will Smith and Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s Tom Holland are teaming up for a new movie, an animated spy movie!

Spies in Disguise is the current project that both Will Smith and Tom Holland have been signed onto. Will Smith, of course, is best known for his roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Men in Black, and Suicide Squad. While a newer member of Hollywood’s elite, Tom Holland isn’t someone to be ignored. You might recognize him best from Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Lost City of Z. Now, the two are coming together to work on a brand new animated feature film.

Based on the short film, Pigeon: Impossible, the new animated feature length film will have similar ties to its source material. For those not in the know, Pigeon: Impossible is about a pigeon who somehow gets stuck in a nuclear briefcase, and things just get worse from there. The new feature film should bring a lot more to the table when it comes to both details and storytelling.

An exclusive from Variety has revealed that both Will Smith and Tom Holland will lend their voices over to the film. It will be produced by 20th Century Fox’s Animation department, with the movie currently scheduled to hit theaters in January 2019. The Peanuts Movie helmsman Nick Bruno will call the shots. Spies in Disguise is part of Fox’s ongoing initiative to increase their animation output under new CEO Stacey Snider.

Screen Rant attended a Fox slate event in London where more details were offered. In the Spies in Disguise, Smith will play Lance Sterling, a cocky super spy who is turned into a pigeon by Holland’s inventor Walter Beckett (who has a whole host of cool gadgets). The pair team up with a gang of real pigeons and group of techies to try and stop a Bondian villain in an adventure described as “21 Jump Street meets Skyfall” by the filmmakers.

We were also shown footage from the movie, illustrating the two lead characters. A clip starring Smith depicted his character on a sting operation where he sets up gadget cameras to record his various antics. While fighting villains (that all know his name), Smith’s sleuth uses lobsters and alcohol as weapons. The one focusing on Holland using parkour to escape the clutches of Yakuza enemies, while using a gadget to calculate his jumps. He fails and is flung from a building, becoming trapped outside an elevator by grappling hook. Holland’s character then falls through a restaurant and lands in a palm tree. Smith remarks that Holland can take a beating, to which the youngster quips he learned how to in middle school.

While Spies in Disguise might end up being great (and the filmmakers said to Screen Rant they hope it to be a jumping off point for a franchise), Fox is often behind the likes of Disney/Pixar and other top tier competitors. The quality of Spies in Disguise might derail as the idea of doing more animated films might outweigh the opportunity to create something truly great with these two standout actors. All that being said, the movie still has a long way to go until they’ll be able to experience it. It’s probably best to hold back on negative opinions before the movie actually starts coming together. As of right now, Spies in Disguise is still in the very early development stages, so even more news should be coming soon.

This is going to be good!

Warner Bros. is postponing Diana Prince’s return to the big screen. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, “Wonder Woman 1984” will now hit theaters on Aug. 14 instead of June 5.

“When we greenlit ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14,” Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, said in a statement. “We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”

The delays were inevitable as multiplexes across the country remain closed to help halt the spread of the novel virus. Warner Bros. was always committed to debuting its “Wonder Woman” sequel in cinemas, and the studio felt it was realistic for theaters to be up and running again by August.

Wonder Woman 1984 is definitely the film we want to see the most this year. Especially since it is set in our birth year. We hate we have to wait a little longer to see Wonder Woman back on The Big Screen, but as they say “better safe than sorry.” We are praying the world will have returned to some type of normalcy by August.

Marvel’s Black Widow. Originally set to be with us on May 1st, the studio has now delayed the movie indefinitely, pulling it off the schedule and not giving us a new date for when we can expect it to open. Of course, it still will hit theaters at some point, but right now, we don’t know when that’ll be or how long we’ll need to wait to get a new release date.

Indeed, with the Coronavirus quickly spreading and showing no signs of slowing down, it seems like every major movie scheduled from now until at least July/August will be getting delayed, leaving the entertainment landscape pretty empty for the foreseeable future. Unless, of course, some of these titles end up on streaming platforms instead.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but for now, Marvel fans will have to wait a little longer for Phase 4 to kickoff with Black Widow, as it’ll no longer be here in May.

This really sucks. We were looking forward to the Black Widow movie. We are hoping and praying that coronavirus will will cured or at least contained soon. We guess we can count moviegoing as a way to get past the next few weeks of quarantine. Be safe everyone.
