Why we needed another Spider-Man

For a lot of diehard comic fans, this weekend’s release of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is a dream come true. The opportunity to see ol’ Webhead sharing the screen with other heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is something that, just a few years ago, would have seemed almost impossible — no less so because Spidey's brief appearance in last year’s “Captain America: Civil War” marked the second time in just four years that the character had been rebooted.

Everything old is young again in Hollywood's digital Fountain of Youth

In 1932, when he was in his mid-40s, Boris Karloff played “The Mummy,” wearing old-age makeup for most of the film. But during a flashback, he is presumed to be very young, in his 20s perhaps. And it works, partly because we’ve already gotten used to seeing Karloff so much older for nearly an hour, but also because of Hollywood trickery — it’s a gauzy long shot.
