It turns out that Tony Stark makes a better Avenger than a mentor. After a teenager named Peter Parker gets bitten by a radioactive spider, he finds himself with some incredible super powers; increased agility, and the ability to climb walls and shoot webs. Naturally, he feels alone with no idea how to use his newfound skills. That's when he meets Iron Man, who intructs him to use his powers to rid the streets of petty criminals with the strict caveat that he must leave any supervillain problems to the Avengers. It doesn't take long for Peter to get frustrated with Tony's treatment of him, and he longs to be a fully-fledged member of the team. Of course, he is still a kid, but when a new menace threatens the city in the form of the Vulture, he's determined to help take him down whether Tony likes it or not.

Glover's critically acclaimed series will not return until 2018, however.
Having scored a huge success with the series ‘Atlanta’ last fall, the actor, musician, scriptwriter and all-round auteur Donald Glover has signed an exclusive deal with FX for forthcoming projects.
The deal will see 33 year old Glover develop and deliver any new projects for FX’s network of channels and streaming services. Fans of ‘Atlanta’ will be pleased to learn that he will remain as the writer, director, star and executive producer of the show, which last Sunday won the Golden Globe for best comedy series.
However, because of Glover’s hectic production schedule over the coming months – namely, playing Lando Calrissian - ‘Atlanta’ will not return for a second series until 2018.

Peter Parker is a teenager who has a lot to deal with after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He suddenly finds himself equipped with the ability to climb buildings and spin webs - powers that he knows he wants to use for good but of which he really doesn't know where to start. He's being mentored by Tony Stark, who suggests he keep to small-time crime rather than taking on the city's supervillains, but he's ready to take on the big guys and he's certainly tired of being patronised by Iron Man who doesn't think he's ready to become an Avenger especially when he's still got high school to complete. When a new menace in the shape of the Vulture makes himself known in New York, the newly dubbed Spider-Man wants to help take him down, but how can he do that with the Avengers trying to keep him out of the loop?

One of this year's rising superstars.
It can't be easy to juggle both a music career and an acting career at the same time, but Donald Glover - aka Childish Gambino - makes it look like a piece of cake. Not only has he got a new album out this year, but he's also got roles in two major upcoming Hollywood blockbusters.
Donald Glover is having an exciting year
2016 has been quite the year for Donald Glover. First he helms award-winning FX series 'Atlanta', then he gets confirmed to star in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' next year, and he's also set to play Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming 'Han Solo' film. All while promoting his third studio album 'Awaken, My Love!'.

The actor will star opposite Alden Ehrenreich, who has already been cast as Han Solo.

There's nothing wrong with this bright and goofy family comedy, but there's nothing much to it either. As a bit of mindless entertainment, the film is smart and funny enough to keep audiences entertained, spinning a swirling vortex of bad luck and wacky slapstick around one lively family. But it's utterly weightless, without even a hint of an edge, and anyone who loathes either nutty physical gags or sappy sentimentality should steer well clear.
Everyone in the audience can understand how Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) feels: he's fed up with the fact that no one notices that his life is just one humiliation after another, so on his 12th birthday he wishes that his family would have a taste of his misfortune. Sure enough, everything that can go wrong does. Dad Ben (Steve Carell) has to take the baby with him to an important job interview; mom Kelly (Jennifer Garner) has a work event go horribly wrong; teen brother Anthony (Dylan Minnette) struggles to make prom night special for his demanding-diva girlfriend (Bella Thorne); and middle sister Emile (Kerris Dorsey) gets ill on opening night of the school play she's starring in. On the other hand, Alexander's day isn't so bad, as he finally catches the eye of cute girl Becky (Sidney Fullmer).
The plot is laid out as a series of minor calamities that escalate to crazed proportions as the day goes on, but only until the screenwriter decides to have mercy on the characters and let them bond to face the mayhem. Frankly, this is such a wildly happy family that nothing about the film is believable: their problems exist strictly for laughs. Thankful, most of the set pieces are genuinely funny due to the up-for-it actors, who make the most of their characters and the connections between them. There's also a terrific stream of cameo roles for comedy aces like Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie) and Donald Glover (Parks and Recreation). Dick Van Dyke even makes a witty appearance as himself.

Donald Glover will finally get his wish to play Spider-Man - but not on the big-screen.
Remember when Donald Glover demanded to be considered for the part of Spider-Man? Even going so far as making a "Donald Glover for Spider-Man" Facebook page? Well, he wasn't cast at the time but now he's sort of gone and got his wish.
Donald Glover will finally get his wish
Today we learned that Glover will lend his voice to the character of Miles Morales - the first black Spider-Man - during the new season of Disney's XD's animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, which will feature both Morales and Peter Parker meeting in a parallel world.

'Community' is renewed for a sixth season, but showrunner Dan Harmon wants Donald Glover to come back.
'Community' is saved, but its resurrection isn't complete just yet. According to showrunner Dan Harmon, he's not content with just getting his show back - he wants Donald Glover back in the cast, too.
The new season of 'Community' will premiere this fall
The cult sitcom was picked up for a new season last month by streaming service Yahoo Screen after NBC canned it, and it was a move that was widely praised. 'Community's upcoming sixth season will debut for everyone's streaming pleasure later this fall. Though all of the cast will return, Glover still won't. The 30 year old rapper/actor left the show last year and only appeared in five episodes last season before bidding farewell for good. But, with 'Community's new lease on life, Harmon is hoping things will change.

Fans of the show could be in for a real treat
'Community' hasn’t even been granted a 6th season yet, but that didn’t stop the show’s creator Dan Harmon was talking about the possibility of getting renewed at Wednesday’s Paleyfest in LA’s Dolby Theatre. He even talked about the possibility of a movie.
Dan Harmon pulling one of his best faces
With the show reaching the end of season 5, Gillian Jacobs blurted out “it’s happening,” to yells from the crowd. “I think we know there’s going to be a sixth season since you guys will probably show up with pitchforks and torches,” followed Joel McHale, referencing the show’s notoriously passionate fan base.

Our first look at season five of the NBC sitcom shows life after Greendale
Community will at last be back on our screens in the new year and to celebrate the long-awaited return of the Greendale Seven (whose numbers have admittedly declined since the start of the show) an all-new trailer has been released by NBC. Marking the return of series creator Dan Harmon to the helm, the new trailer is a cinematic feast, coming across more as a movie trailer than a promo for a television series.
Dan Harmon and Joel McHale both make their welcome returns to Greendale Community College
It seems as though Joel McHale's Jeff Winger has finally been able to reignite his law career after spending four years at the community college, only for it all to come crashing down as soon as he could get things moving again. The pop culture references are right here just as you would expect, with Abed (Danny Pudi) comparing Winger's return to Greendale with season nine of Scrubs, posing, "It could be like Scrubs season nine - a revamp, a do-over."

We hope Donald isn't going through any real strife, but if he is, then perhaps Instagram isn't the best place for it
Everyone seems to be in agreement about Donald Glover: he’s an immensely talented man, who can pretty much do anything he puts his mind to. Hopefully, he’s just put his mind to freaking out his core fan group, because he’s certainly achieved that with his set of eerie Instagram photos.
Here's Donald Glover being Childish Gambino
The pics uploaded to the photo-sharing social networking site depict a load of handwritten notes with some pretty serious stuff written on them. No need to call the police just yet, but we’d keep the phone somewhere nearby. "I'm afraid my parents won't live long enough to see my kids," said one note.
Even as this comedy strains to be goofy and transgressive, it catches us by surprise simply because it dares to explore first-time sexual experiences through female eyes. And Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) brings her usual sardonic wit to the lead role, merrily offending the more timid moviegoers while making more adventurous fans wish the film went even further.
Plaza plays Brandy, who graduated at the top of her Boise high school class. But with that goal achieved, she wonders if she neglected to prepare properly for university social life, so she makes a summer to-do list of sex-related tasks leading, hopefully, to losing her virginity to the hunky guitar-strumming lifeguard Rusty (Porter). She works with him at the local swimming pool along with her nice-guy best pal Cameron (Simmons), who's of course secretly in love with her. But as Brandy works through the list with the help of her friends (Shawkat and Steele) and her experienced big sister (Bilson), she starts to worry that her emotions are getting in the way.
Thankfully, writer-director Carey refuses to let this turn into a romantic slush-fest, keeping the encounters jagged and often very funny. The script is packed with hilariously squirm-inducing conversations about sex, many involving Brandy's far too helpful mother (Britton). Although her dad (Gregg) and her loser boss (Hader) understandably don't want to know. Meanwhile, when the local guys (Glover and Mintz-Plasse) find out about Brandy's list, they are sure to tick off a few items themselves, as does a visiting rock star (Samberg).

The popular character will have a smaller part this time
The ever-troubled show Community has been dealt another blow as it was revealed that Donald Glover – a real fans’ favorite – is to appear in only 5 out of the scheduled 13 episodes of season 5. That’s right, you’ll be seeing less of Troy Barnes, but on the upside, you Glover fans will be seeing more of Childish Gambino – the multi-talented actor/musician’s rap alter ego.
Here's Donald Glover being Childish Gambino
Instead of just leaving the show, which isn’t a rare occurrence for Community – troubled as it is – no: Glover and Sony Pictures Entertainment have worked out a way for him to see out season 5 by appearing in 5 episodes. This will allow Sony to save some cash, which is never a bad things in these times of austerity, and allow Glover to focus on his surprisingly fragrant music career, which includes the track Freaks and Geeks – click on that with caution, you under-18s, you.
Brandy Clark is a smart, high-achieving though particularly naive high-school graduate whose finding the prospect of a new life at college daunting. Tired of being relentlessly teased for her sexual inexperience, she compiles a list of bedroom adventures she would like to have before beginning her first year as a freshman. However, trying to catch-up with her friends becomes a shame-filled rollercoaster as she attempts to seduce handsome, floppy-haired lifeguard Rusty Waters who she met at her first college party. She manages to lose her head, as well as her top, as she discovers that there's more to having trysts with guys than just getting physical as the much more confusing emotional side comes into it. The question is, will she survive her first year at college, or will this new world of passion and parties drive this straight-laced girl crazy?

The hugely anticipated second series of Girls – the HBO brainchild of Lena Dunham – is set to premiere on January 13, 2012, with a couple of new cast-members. Community star Donald Glover, who also raps under the name Childish Gambino, will play “a handsome black Republican named Sandy,” who sparks up a relationship with Dunham’s protagonist Louise.
Though the show was pretty much praised across the board during the first season, some criticism was levelled at Dunham’s treatment of race, or the lack of it. The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman got a sneak peak at the news series and confirmed Glover’s prominent role in the series. Perhaps more importantly, Goodman reveals that the series is good, very good. “The first four episodes of season two are so ambitious and self-aware -- charting important new swaths of dramatic territory in the lives of the principals -- that it seems like Lena Dunham had written them while riding the same creative wave that spawned the awe-inspiring first season,” he wrote. It should be interesting to discover how Sandy’s Republicanism fits into a series that drips with leftie, hipster-ish sentiments.
Girls Season 2 is scheduled to premiere on January 13, 2013 at 9PM on HBO. UK viewers will only have to wait one day, with a Sky Atlantic premiere set for January 14, 2013.

Brandy Clark is an ordinary high school senior who finds herself suffocated under the pressures of pre-college life. As a sexually curious virgin, she is determined to explore the world of bedroom pleasures before starting her first year at college. From the most bizarre to the most unpleasant and unimaginable, she is resolute that she will experience every sexual adventure she's ever heard of and makes a long, colorful list of everything she hopes to err. 'achieve' in the short time she has left as a senior. Locating willing participants doesn't prove too difficult with many members of the opposite sex on a similar quest to her, and her new found promiscuity proves a lot for her anxious parents to handle.
This hilarious new romantic comedy is not like regular Valentine's Day flicks; it's frank and explicit with no room for censorship, just like a normal pre-college teenager. 'The To Do List' has been written and directed by Maggie Carey in her first feature length movie and its set to be released bang on time on February 14th 2013. Prepare to cover your ears and eyes as you venture into that world you thought (and hoped) you'd long forgotten.
Starring: Connie Britton, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Bilson, Andy Samberg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Alia Shawkat, Clark Gregg, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Scott Porter, Nolan Gould, Donald Glover, Adam Pally, Sarah Steele & Lauren Lapkus.

Chevy Chase's rant on the set of NBC comedy 'Community' briefly halted production on the show on Friday (October 19, 2012), according to TVLine.com. Multiple sources confirm that Chase dropped the N-word in the presence of African-American co-stars Yvette Nicole Brown and Donald Glover.
An insider reveals how Chevy was struggling with his character's dialogue and - in a moment of sheer frustration - uttered the word. The slur was not thought to be directed at Brown or Glover, though it capped an unhappy filming schedule for the veteran comedian who is thought to be angry at the increasingly dark direction of his character Pierce Hawthorne. According to TMZ.com, Chase yelled out something along the lines of, "What's next? Am I gonna say the word ni**er?"A source told the Hollywood Reporter that Chase apologized immediately to the cast and crew of Community. The outburst comes just months after Chase blasted the show's creator Dan Harmon in a scathing voicemail message, calling him a "goddamn bad writer," before yelling, "Your writing is getting worse and worse."
So on reflection, Chase's outbursts ranks around 7/10 on the on-set-outburst-o-meter. Christian Bale's famous Terminator rant will forever remain the king. "Do you want me to go f*cking trash your lights? Do you want me to f*cking trash them? Then why are you trashing my scene? You do it one more f*cking time and I ain't walking on this set if you're still hired. I'm f*cking serious."
Underneath the famous Muppet Theatre, oil has been discovered. Tex Richman, an oilman, finds out and plans to demolish the theatre so he can start drilling. Walter, Gary and Mary are three friends who also happen to be huge fans of The Muppets. They plan to stage what they call 'The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever', so they can raise $10 million to stop the destruction of the Muppet Theatre.
