Movie News

The late Stan Lee -- who co-created 'Spider-Man' -- would've been happy over the news that Sony pumped the brakes on giving Disney control of his character ... so says his daughter. Sony's move to limit control over 'Spider-Man' -- and potentially remove the superhero entirely from Disney's Marvel Comic Universe -- is one that was necessary and something Stan would have appreciated ... so says his daughter, Joan Celia (JC) Lee. ICYMI ... reports surfaced Tuesday that Sony and Disney reached a standstill in negotiating Spidey's future under Disney's umbrella, including any 'Avengers' spin-offs/sequels. Insiders told Deadline it was all about money ... Disney wanted a 50/50 stake in 'Spider-Man'-related revenue, and also wanted Marvel honcho Kevin Feige to be the guiding hand. Welp, Sony was reportedly not too down with that -- they own the rights to 'Spider-Man,' and until now had partnered with Disney to crank out these last …

Why Taylor Swift Says Lover Is Such a Special Album. There's no calming down because Taylor Swift just took over Central Park. A day ahead of the release of her highly anticipated seventh studio album, Lover, the 29-year-old took the stage in the Big Apple for a Capital One-sponsored concert in front of an expectedly enthusiastic crowd. Ahead of her performance, Swift sat down with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts to chat about her new work. "One thing about this album that's really special to me is that it's the first one that I will own of my work," she said, an obvious nod to the headline-making controversy involving Scooter Braun over the ownership of her masters. "Which is a concept that they're very supportive of," she said of her vocal fans cheering and applauding. On that note, she also confirmed she will be re-recording her first five albums next year. "It's something that I'm very excited about doing because my contrac…

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Royal baby Archie's got a new nanny -- his third in as many months since his birth -- and she's helping Meghan Markle accomplish one of her goals ... bringing multiculturalism to the Royals. Prince Harry and Meghan's latest childcare pro was spotted stepping off a private jet with the family as they returned from vacation at Elton John's estate in France ... and TMZ's confirmed she is indeed their new nanny. Here's what we know about nanny #3 from our Royal sourced she's black, from Great Britain and was hired through an agency. As you may know, both Meghan and Harry have been advocates for race and gender equality ... so this choice makes sense. This is the first time we've seen one of Archie's nannies in public -- so, truth is, one or both of the first 2 might have also been black. In any event, this is new territory for the Royal Family. Prince William and Kate Middleton's nannies have been white. Our sources say the unidentified woman was hi…

(Health) Balance out the spritzers and sweets this season with hacks that up your veggie intake all day. It's probably not news to you that eating vegetables is a must for good health. But it can be a struggle to get enough of them. "I encourage people to aim for six half-cup servings per day," says Sharon Palmer, RDN, author of "Plant Powered for Life." "That means you have to get in at least a couple of servings at every mean." Here's some ways to sneak them in:

Boost your Breakfast
