The OG Spider-Man
A new book, Spider-Man No Way Home: The Official Movie Special, will also feature interviews with some past actors that took up the movie role of heroic wall-crawler, including Tobey MaGuire. He played the web-slinger again last year for the first time since 2007, joining the MCU film, and said it was a relief that he was called to suit up again. "I love these films and I love all of the different series," he gushed. "If these guys called me and said, 'Would you show up tonight to hang out and goof around' or 'Would you show up and do this movie or read a scene or do a Spider-Man thing?' It would be a yes! Because why wouldn't I want to do that." The book is set for a February 28 release.

Elton John's New Zealand Farewell
As Elton John embarked on his final world tour, he was forced to cancel his scheduled show at New Zealand's Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland due to catastrophic weather conditions. About 40,000 fans were turned away at the last minute, after having already entered the venue, when organizers made the decision to cancel. Flash floods forced many to wade through waist-deep water, and more than 1,000 emergency calls for help were taken by fire and emergency services.
