The Apple Watch, like the iPhone and to a slightly lesser extend the iPad, is a herald of something greater. A new community, and a new way of computing.

The Avengers Age of Ultron Spider-Man scene that wasn’t

First of all - there is no post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron at all. None. There is, however, a very clever hoax being delivered to the web this week courtesy of one serious hoaxer. How exactly they created the sequence you're about to see, we do not know - but it's fairly believable. Especially since this is the quality at which most "post credits sequences" are delivered these days, generally speaking. And it wouldn't make much sense for Marvel to reboot Spider-Man like this AGAIN, would it?

Sony, Marvel agree to bring Spidey to Marvel film universe

Now, this sort of deal might sound strange at first. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have inked a deal that will let the webslinger, well, sling between multiple films created by the two rival studios. This means that, aside from whatever Amazing Spider-Man film Sony Pictures has planned, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will soon be making an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as well, first by himself and, perhaps, with others.
