Challengers director explains reason for Spider-Man reference in Zendaya scene

Challengers director explains reason for Spider-Man reference in Zendaya scene

[ad_1] Get our free weekly email for all the latest cinematic news from our film critic Clarisse Loughrey Get our The Life Cinematic email for free Challengers director Luca Guadagnino has revealed why his Zendaya-led film includes a nod to Spider-Man – and it’s nothing to do with the actor’s connection to the franchise. Written by playwright and novelist Justin Kuritzkes, Challengers stars Zendaya as Tashi, a professional tennis player-turned-coach who becomes the focus of a love triangle between two friends and sporting rivals, played by Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor. In the film, Tashi’s young daughter Lily interrupts a heated argument between Zendaya and Faist’s characters to ask if she can watch the animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse instead of the tennis match playing on their TV. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Guadagnino said the Spider-Man “in-joke” was unintentional and the decision had actually been for production ease. Guadagnino explained getting rights for another title to be used in a movie is “very complicated” so, he’d asked the film’s producer, Amy Pascal, if they …

Zendaya Opens Up About Challengers’ Surprise Spider-Man Reference

[ad_1] Zendaya has opened up about how a nod to one of her most famous works managed to make its way into her new film Challengers. As well as playing tennis-prodigy-turned-coach Tashi Duncan in the hit sports drama, the Euphoria star also served as one of its producers. Early on in the film, Zendaya is heard urging her young daughter to go and “watch Spider-Verse” in her hotel bedroom, referencing the hugely popular animated Spider-Man movies. As well as her roles in Euphoria and Dune, the Emmy winner is perhaps best known for her role as MJ in the most recent live-action Spider-Man films – and the reference to her Marvel past in her latest film wasn’t lost on her. Zendaya in New York last month Jason Howard/Bauer-Griffin via Getty Images Speaking to reporters at the film’s LA premiere, Zendaya revealed (via Vulture): “What’s funny is I think [the film] might have been something else [in the script], but that’s what we could get cleared.” “It’s a fun little callout,” she added. Luca Guadagnino previously …

Kirsten Dunst Reveals Why Filming Spider-Man Kiss Was A ‘Miserable’ Experience

Kirsten Dunst Reveals Why Filming Spider-Man Kiss Was A ‘Miserable’ Experience

[ad_1] Kirsten Dunst has confessed that filming the iconic Spider-Man kiss scene with Tobey Maguire wasn’t quite as romantic as it looked. Everyone remembers the moment in the 2002 Sam Raimi film when Mary Jane comes face-to-face with the mystery web wielding superhero in the rain. After coming to her rescue and saving her from a gang, MJ pulls back Spider-Man’s mask as he hangs from a building and the famous upside-down kiss follows. But while it looked like a seamless moment on screen, Kirsten has revealed that it was a bit “miserable” to film. Speaking on Saturday’s edition of The Jonathan Ross Show, the Fargo actor recalled director Sam gifting her with something to help aid the scene. “I remember Sam Raimi giving me a book of famous kisses to be inspired but also he really wanted to make it special even though it was kind of miserable actually doing it,” she said. “It was pouring with rain, freezing, Tobey couldn’t breathe so it was almost like I was resuscitating him,” the actor joked. …
