Although Sony’s 2002 hit film Spider-Man played a significant role in propelling superhero cinema into the mainstream, the studio’s subsequent releases starring both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield didn’t quite catch on. Finally, after growing to its own dizzying heights, Marvel negotiated to bring Spider-Man into its own cinematic universe, casting Tom Holland as Peter Parker. With two hugely successful films, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home , Sony and Marvel have shown that playing nice can have a huge payoff. The two studios are already hard at work on the third Spider-Man film, due out December 17, 2021, which is subtitled No Way Home . In February 2021 , star Tom Holland called Spider-Man: No Way Home “the most ambitious stand-alone superhero ever made,” and given everything we’ve heard about it, it’s not surprising. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming film, including rumors about one of the most significant crossover events in the … [Read more...] about Spider-Man: No Way Home: Everything we know about the sequel

GENETICALLY modified mosquitoes have been released for the first time ever in the US. Biotech firm Oxitec released the insects in Florida with the aim of tackling disease-carrying mosquitoes in the region. According to Nature , genetically modified mosquito eggs were placed at six locations in Florida in April and 12,000 newly hatched male mosquitoes should emerge over the next 12 weeks. The exact locations of the eggs have not been revealed. If all goes well, 20 million more mosquitoes will be released later this year. The idea is that the genetically modified mosquitoes will act like 'sex assassins' by passing on a lethal gene when they mate with normal mosquitoes in the wild. All of the Oxitec mosquitoes are male and male mosquitoes do not suck blood. The males feed on plant juices whereas the females need protein from blood to help develop their eggs. This means female mosquitoes are the disease spreaders we need to tackle. It is hoped that the Oxitec … [Read more...] about Mega-swarm of gene-hacked killer ‘sex assassin’ mosquitoes released in Florida
