A ‘Madame Web’ Trailer Exists and None of You Jerks Told Me About It?

I mean, I’m a Spider-Man/Spider-Verse person, seriously. Not in the sense that I saw Venom, or the one with Leto, or know when Kraven the Hunter comes out, but I’m still shocked that an official Madame Web trailer has been live for a whole week and I’m just watching it today. Internet! What’re you doing, man?

NOC Review: ‘The Marvels’ is a Light and Breezy Blast

It seems these days I start out every MCU review with some comments about how we’re in an era where “the death of Marvel” is prominently in the zeitgeist. And sure, a damning article from Variety and some online chatter, along with some lukewarm or worse receptions for certain projects here and there would have you think such a thing is imminent. Perhaps it’s true. Or perhaps it’s audience or critical cynicism at its worst.

‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Swings Further and Higher to Be a Masterful Sequel

The best thing about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is that it’s an irreverent love letter that dares to challenge and satirize the Webslinger’s mythology. By introducing Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) into the cinematic universe, not only did we see the Spidey persona in a whole new way, but we also got to see the social impact of representation. Now Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse puts a twist on the themes explored in the first while diving into the complex themes of individuality.

Tatiana Maslany on ‘She-Hulk’ Season Finale and Potential Future Cameos

She-Hulk’s season finale premiered last Thursday with what seems to be an unconventional happy ending. Jen/She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) became the writer to her own story as she broke the fourth wall and confronted Marvel Studios — including the She-Hulk writers’ room and K.E.V.I.N. (Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus), an AI responsible for creating all of the MCU programs. Though the conclusion was very true to the comic book character, many were left wondering about the impact of the invasion of privacy and trauma that Jen went through in the last episode.
