Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Trailer is Pretty Good as a 1960s Cartoon

Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Remixed with 1967 Spidey Show

It’s debatable as to whether or not the ‘67 cartoon, was actually any good. As the first animated go at the hero, voiced by the late Paul Soles, it’s primarily lived on through many, many memes that you’ve seen on social media recently. Its three-season run had some episodes were absurd as hell at best and a total snooze at worst. It makes trailers like this one fascinating glimpses into history that may inspire younger viewers to check the show out and see how the hero has evolved in animation…y’know, assuming the show ever actually comes to Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters on December 17.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Game Credits the Hell Out of Its In-Game Costumes

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Game: Skins and Costumes

Does it make the game an automatic hit, obviously not. But hey, isn’t it nice of them to do that instead of just providing an in-game description and then just stopping there, as many recent superhero games tend to do?

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases next week on October 26 for PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC.

Updates From The Mandalorian, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and More

The Mandalorian Season 3 Filming Begins With Carl Weathers


Ant-Man & The Wasp Quantumania

In conversation with THR, Evangeline Lily revealed she had a “eureka” moment while reading the script for Quantumania and now “finally gets” her character, Hope Van Dyne.

Hope is an odd enigma for me. I wish I could say otherwise because I want to honor her; I want to honor every character I ever play. But the truth is that I find it harder to know and understand Hope than any other character I’ve ever played before. We’re just a little over halfway through. And I will say that after I read the script of the film, I did have a kind of eureka moment; I said to Peyton [Reed], ‘Oh my God, I think I finally get her.’ Three or four films in, I thought, ‘I think I get it now.’ So I’m hoping that when we come to wrap and when I see the movie, I’m going to know the difference. But I don’t think anyone else will. I think I’m a good bluffer. That’s what I do for a living. But I know the difference and I’m hopeful that in this one, I’ll feel like I can watch it and go, ‘Yeah, you had a better handle on her in this one than you ever have before.’ That’s my goal, anyway. That’s my hope.

Spider-Man and Iron Man Team Up in Manga from Yu-Gi-Oh Creator Kazuki Takahashi

Marvel’s Spider-Man and Iron Man Manga Releases in 2022

The new manga push comes as Marvel attempts to return to a medium it sporadically dips into in North America. Outside of that 2014 one-shot crossover with Attack on Titan, their biggest foray into manga was the Mangaverse of the early-to-mid 2000s, and it had some wild concepts behind it. Black Panther could become the Falcon thanks to a totem, and Helstrom and Ghost Rider were Satan’s sons. For Spidey and Iron Man specifically, things were…interesting. Spider-Man was the last member of a ninja clan whose Uncle Ben was killed by Venom on Kingpin’s orders. As for Mangaverse Iron Man? He became a floating head in a jar while his sister Toni took the mantle. He still got suits of armor, though, and they all just looked like popular mechas from the time, and they could combine into an even bigger mecha called Ultimate Iron Man.

Look for Secret Reverse to hit shelves in summer 2022.

What Does the Venom 2 Post-Credits Scene Mean for Marvel’s Future?

Venom 2 Post Credits: MCU Implications Revealed

Then there’s the deeper, more interesting question of what happens when this Venom meets up with that Spider-Man. In the comics (and other certain movies of questionable quality), Eddie’s role as the host of the Venom symbiote comes from Spider-Man—after all, it’s the symbiote that initially bonds with Peter Parker. That connection, and Eddie Brock’s professional intersections with Peter Parker, made the two mortal enemies. Odds are that won’t happen now, especially since Hardy’s Venom is… kind of a good guy, in a way? It feels more in character for him to team up with Spider-Man than to fight him, at least in this universe.

OK, so with all those seeds floating around in your head, it’s your turn. Tell us below when and how you think Spider-Man and Venom will show down, because it’s definitely happening.

Splatoon 3’s Into The Spider-Verse Cityscape Looks Absolutely Stunning

Splatoon 3: Into The Spider-Verse Cityscape Absolutely Stunning

The as-of-yet-unnamed bow teased in Nintendo’s first look immediately stood out as one of the exciting new weapons added to the game, and it’s conspicuously absent in the new trailer. In its place, though, are a handful of choice shots of a new battle vehicle that looks something like a cross between a Droideka and a crab, and one Inkling zipping around a battlefield thwipping its arms in a very Spider-Man-like fashion. The webhead’s influence on the Splatoon franchise seems to have carried over into some of Splatoon 3‘s establishing shots of Splatsville, which is shown to have some sort of mirrored phenomenon above it, similar to Juan Solanas’ Upside Down. The striking image of an Inkling standing atop a building while looking up at an upside-down city immediately evokes the “leap of faith” scene from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and it’s going to be wild to see what actually moving around the city with other characters while playing the game is like.

Splatoon’s always been one of Nintendo’s more stylish games, and it isn’t surprising that the studio would take a few cues from one of the most gorgeous films of the past decade for its latest project. What is a little surprising, though, is that there still isn’t a hard release date for when Splatoon 3 is meant to drop, but it’s scheduled for some time in 2022.

Multiverse Hopes You Remember the Sci-Fi Concept Is So Hot Right Now

Multiverse Trailer: Multi-Dimensional Sci-Fi Thriller, Marlee Matlin

If you get more Primer vibes than Spider-Man from that trailer, you aren’t wrong. Entangled feels a bit more appropriate as a title, albeit it far less marketable in 2021. Nevertheless, a movie like this seems like a great place to explore what it means for alternate dimensions to cross over, and the very ripe, terrifying notion of meeting a version of yourself. Could you co-exist? Would you want to co-exist? Here, it seems like no love will be lost and lots of people will be murdered.

Multiverse, appropriately, has a multi-prong release. First, it’ll be released in select theaters on November 12. Next, it’ll hit on-demand and digital on November 16. Then, if you can wait a few months, the DVD and Blu-ray releases have already been scheduled for January 11, 2022. Or, if you exist in multiple universes, maybe you can try and watch them all at once. Don’t forget to check out io9’s Fall Movie Preview for more exciting genre titles on the way in 2021.

Insomniac’s Next Spider-Man Game Will Bring Venom to the Party

Playstation Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to Feature Kraven, Venom

In a press release that dropped following the teaser’s debut, Sony announced that Candyman’s Tony Todd is set to voice Spider-Man 2‘s Venom alongside Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their respective roles as Peter and Miles. Spider-Man: Miles creative director Bryan Intihar and game director Ryan Smith both returned to oversee the new game.

According to the press release, Spider-Man 2 will see both series develop new skills and abilities, as well as acquire a variety of new suits as part of a story that pits them against at least one of Spider-Man’s most iconic foes who’s yet to make the jump to Insomniac’s games. Though the teaser only provides but so much in terms of the game’s story, both Peter and Miles’ being featured together as Spider-Man strongly implies that you’ll be able (or perhaps have to) play as both characters in order to fully complete the game. Whether this means that Miles and Peter will have alternate paths meant to enhance the game replayability or whether Spider-Man 2 will incorporate some interesting two-player game mechanics remains to be seen.

Currently, there is no scheduled release date for Spider-Man 2, but more information about the game is sure to be released in the coming months.

After Spider-Man, Wolverine Will Star in Insomniac’s Next Big Marvel Game

Marvel Wolverine Game Announced for PS5

Scant as the teaser is in the way of narrative details, it immediately gives you a sense of what Wolverine’s finalizes aesthetics will look like, and a taste of what the game’s action might feel like. Given how Insomniac’s Spider-Man games have mined their titular heroes’ rogues galleries and lore fairly deeply, it’s likely that Wolverine will feature a number of X-Men characters with particularly close ties to Wolverine and delve into plots inspired by the comics focused on him. What’s going to be particularly fascinating to learn more about is what sort of world Insomniac creates for Wolverine to exist in, and whether the studio will develop an innovative way for him to move about it the way it did for Peter Parker and Miles Morales.

There’s currently no projected release date for the new Wolverine game, but we’re sure to hear more details about it in the coming months.
