We begin this week's episode with the exciting news that Peyton Reed will direct the third film in the Ant-Man franchise! Then, we discuss our featured topic: Marvel fatigue. Disney executives say they're not worried about it, but should they be? With Marvel Studios about to increase its output dramatically (especially in 2021), we look at the ways Kevin Feige and company have and can continue to maintain the audience's appetite for more Marvel!
This week, we step inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe with our SPOILER review of Avengers: Damage Control! Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB have created a dream-come-true virtual reality experience that put us right in the middle of a battle between The Avengers (of which we're now members) and Ultron, and we survived to tell the tale. We discuss every detail before looking to the future to explore additional opportunities in this new storytelling space and whether or not such adventures should officially be part of the MCU canon.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige already wears a lot of hats and he just got several more, plus an additional title. As Chief Creative Officer, Marvel, Feige will bring Marvel Television and animation under the Marvel Studios banner, putting him in charge of all things pertaining to Marvel movies and television/streaming. Feige will also oversee creative and editorial for Marvel's publishing branch, which includes comics. What does this all mean for the present and future of Marvel? We break down the massive corporate shakeup in this episode!
It was a massive week in Marvel Studios news! Spider-Man will remain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, for now, after Sony Pictures and Disney signed a new deal. Kevin Feige sounds like he's okay with the idea of Tom Holland jumping from the MCU to Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters (and perhaps back to the MCU from there). Speaking of the Marvel Studios boss, he's also developing a Star Wars movie, leading to questions about his future at Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Company. We've got all of these topics covered in this episode!
We're back after a brief hiatus and, naturally, catching up on the latest Marvel Studios news! We discuss the fallout from the Spider-Man situation before dreaming up the special features we want in the recently-announced box set for The Infinity Saga. We also talk about the first feature from that set: an alternate version of the post-credits scene from Iron Man!
