Episode 41 – #JusticeForSnakeThing

On this installment of the podcast, we talk about Spider-man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the weird Wheel of Time Pilot that aired, the Master returning in the Doctor Who Series 9 opener, the new Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, the first picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Deadpool-casting-pa-looza, and Nick and Pher’s trip to Anime Milwaukee.

And we read your mail on top of that.

It’s a long-ish episode this fortnight for sure.

Adrianne Palicki Promoted to Series Regular on ‘Agents of SHIELD’

TVLine is reporting that Adrianne Palicki is being promoted to series regular on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD starting with the midseason premiere (currently titled “Aftershocks”).

Palicki, of course, plays “Bobbi Morse,” better known as the superhero Mockingbird to Marvel comics readers. Paliciki’s Morse has been one of several positive cast changes in the show’s second season, which has been significantly stronger than the first (which often felt like it was waiting so it would properly time out with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier). The fact that Marvel is willing to invest this much of its IP in the series is, of course, promising for the show’s future as well.

Agents of SHIELD returns March 3rd.

How Spider-Man Joining the MCU Changes Phase 3

Last night we got the amazing news that Spider-man is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony will still be producing any stand-alone films, as they haven’t given up the rights on the character, but will coordinate with Marvel for crossovers like the Avengers films.

But we didn’t know a lot about how this would affect Sony’s previously announced plans for the franchise. Now, in the light of day, a lot more details are coming out.

First off, as most of us suspected, Andrew Garfield is out. While he was an excellent Peter Parker, Marvel wants a new actor in the role. Secondly, Sinister Six film is on hold at best and cancelled at worst. Thirdly, we also know that Marvel wants the character to be Peter Parker (sorry Miles Morales fans).

A new stand-alone Spider-man film is still expected, just in July of 2017.

Because of that 2017 film, some of the Marvel Phase 3 films are getting shuffled a bit. This is what Phase 3 Looks like now:

May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War
November 4, 2016 – Doctor Strange
May 5, 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy 2
July 27, 2017 – Spider-Man
November 3, 2017 – Thor: Ragnarok
May 4, 2018 – The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1
July 6, 2018 – Black Panther
November 2, 2018 – Captain Marvel
May 3, 2019 – The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2
July 12, 2019 – Inhumans

All in all, it’s an exciting shift to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I will admit, I am a bit disappointed that we likely won’t see a Black Cat movie now.

Spider-man to Join the MCU

In a twist that many of us were waiting for, Marvel has announced that Kevin Feige will be co-producing the next Spider-man film for Sony. As part of this deal, the Spider-man of this new film will be introduced in one of the films produced by Marvel studios.

Sony will retain creative control over the Spider-man solo, films, but this is basically joint-custody sort of thing with the character.

This could… be really weird. I’m glad to get Spider-man in on all this Marvel fun, but this will likely mean ANOTHER Spider-man reboot in the near future.  On the other hand, the rumors of Spider-man in Civil War might just pan out now, and I’m very excited for that.

Just hear us out Marvel, we’ve seen two Peter Parkers in the last few years. Maybe its time for Miles Morales?

Could Iron Man joining Captain America 3 mean something Uncivil?

Robert Downey Jr. is still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he may be signing on for a shocking part in the third Captain America film. Things are looking more and more like this wont be a team-up, so much as Iron Man acting as a villain, as he was in Civil War.

Rumors of a Civil War adaptation have been circling around for years, and they’ve only intensified since Captain America: The Winter Soldier borrowed several elements from that story.  But this would be a pretty dark step for such a popular character.  It would also be a really ballsy move for Marvel to bust out their own “versus” movie so close to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

No lie though, I would love to see this happen.
