Interview: Zendaya, Tom Holland And More Discuss 'Spiderman Homecoming'

Peter Parker is officially back.

Spiderman Homecoming has all the perfect ingredients for your quintessential teenage movie. Yet like with all Marvel creations, there are magical super powers involved coupled with a set of missions to complete. British newcomer Tom Holland (Spiderman/Peter Parker) does a magnificent job at morphing into the man who’s fascinated with spider-webs and fighting off mischief.

Amid his super natural powers, Parker is your typical awkward high school student. There’s a hint of love involved as he is crushing hard on classmate Liz Allan (played by Laura Harrier). And there's also an endearing coming of age friendship on screen with his long time pal Ned (Jacob Batalon).

Another captivating character thrown into the mix is, Michelle (Zendaya) who plays the weird girl who at the same time is too cool for school, and not easily impressed. Interestingly enough, rumors are now surfacing that in real life, Zendaya and Tom are dating.

Before the alleged love connection, VIBE caught up with the gang along with Marisa Tomei (Aunt May) on a balmy June Saturday in New York City where the cast discussed everything from the movie’s action packed scenes, to the diverse faces that are present (and very necessary) in the film.

'The Wire's' Tray Chaney Shares His Testament In Self-Entitled Documentary Trailer

You may have seen Tray Chaney as Malik "Poot" Carr on the HBO Emmy-nominated drama series The Wire where he starts as a neighborhood drug dealer in the Barksdale organization and slowly moves up in ranks. He has also starred in a list of roles including Bounce TV's  Saints & Sinners as Kendrick Murphy and was nominated in 2019 at the International Christian Film Festival for Best Actor: Short Film in Angels in Rocket Field. 

After being accepted as an "Official Selection" during the Black Continental Independent Movie Awards in Silver Spring, Maryland, Chaney released the documentary trailer for Undeniable: The Tray Chaney Story under his Undeniable (Wired Different) campaign on Thursday (Aug. 15). The potential docuseries will follow the narratives of the journeys of The Wire cast members, how they landed their roles, what happened when the television series ended in 2008, and what they are doing now.

Under the production of Commodore Independent Filmworks and Safe House Films DC. Chaney's 45-minute episode features testimonials from Big Daddy Kane, Clifton Powell, Kenny Lattimore, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Russ Parr, Jd Williams, Keith Robinson, Anwan Big G Glover, and Black Child. His former co-star Idris Elba also shows his support for the documentary.

"Just know how hard he hustles," says Anwan "Big G" Glover.

The less than 2-minute snippet touches on the framework of Chaney, his eagerness and willingness to learn,  even mentioning his journey on Saints & Sinners as "the work of the Gods".

Is 'The Proud Family' Coming Back To Disney?

According to reports, beloved early-2000s cartoon The Proud Family could reportedly be heading to Disney's new streaming service with all-new episodes.

During a red carpet interview for the film 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, actor and comedian Tommy Davidson, who played the cartoon family's patriarch Oscar Proud, stated that new episodes would come with the media company's upcoming service, Disney+.

"I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family's coming back," he reportedly said. "It's on one of Disney's streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family's coming back. They told me not to tell you."

Fueling even more speculation, an unofficial, fan-made page featuring new animation of Penny Proud and her friends made the rounds on Twitter Monday night (Aug. 20). Over the weekend, people also discovered that Solange and Destiny's Child sang the show's theme song (we thought everyone knew, but welcome to the club).

Disney+ is reportedly going to drop on Nov. 12, so we'll likely hear more news about it soon, and will finally get an answer about The Proud Family's possible reboot.

Actress Who Made 'For Your Consideration' Billboard For Tyler Perry Is Cast In His Show

While Tyler Perry wasn’t all that jazzed about the fact that an actress purchased a billboard begging him to cast her in one of his shows, the stunt appeared to have worked.

According to TMZ, Racquel Bailey reportedly landed a role on Perry’s new television project, a BET show titled Sistas. The site reads that Bailey will be in the Season One finale, and will possibly be in Season Two.

“…Bailey plays a police officer who had a past relationship with one of the lead characters. Perry was on set directing the episode in which Bailey will appear,” the site continues. Bailey also reportedly received a few calls outside of Mr. Perry, leading to about 20 auditions and two roles (not including Sistas).

“This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows,” wrote Perry on Instagram back in June accompanying a photo of Bailey’s billboard. “This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose. I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite.”

This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose. I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite. Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION. And by the way, you were great in THE NIGHT OF! It was my favorite show a couple years ago. I ALREADY SAW YOU!! So just audition and keep your money!! Again, I appreciate your effort, but that’s not the way to work for me. God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!
