Spider-Man: No Way Home was an awesome movie and a great origin story for actor Tom Holland to truly become a classic Spider-Man. In a perfect world, Holland would be 100% on board with keeping the character moving forward, giving us another full trilogy or series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The powers that be at Marvel and Sony have said they’re already working on a new trilogy, though Holland has been real cagey about his involvement.
Assuming we do get Tom Holland back in the spider-tights and we continue the story of the MCU Peter Parker, what are we going to get? The ending to Spider-Man: No Way Home is rather perfect to springboard into more movies, and there is a ton of Spider-Man content from the comics we could explore. Also in this perfect world of mine, Marvel Studios actually reads this blog and takes some of my ideas! So what do I, a major fan of the MCU and Spider-Man in general, want to see in a future Tom Holland trilogy of films?
Join me after the jump for some of my ideas. I’ll try to keep SPOILERS for No Way Home to a minimum, but definitely don’t read if you don’t want to know anything about the movie. And feel free to share your own thoughts and hopes in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
I’m a couple of weeks late with this list, but time and the holidays make fools of us all. The first season of the Hawkeye TV show on Disney+ came and went and it was an utter delight! Marvel Studios is doing a wonderful job adapting their movie characters into TV shows, and I have enjoyed every one — especially Hawkeye. From just liking Clint Barton on the big screen, to looking forward to the introduction of Kate Bishop, I had high hopes for the Hawkeye show from the very beginning. And it lived up to the hype and then some.
TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.
I will admit that these Marvel shows aren’t all grand and wonderful television. There are shows that are more dramatic and engaging, shows that are more inventive. But in terms of creating enjoyable TV shows out of MCU characters and properties, these Disney+ shows — and especially Hawkeye — are doing a great job. They’re hugely fun, very entertaining, and use the characters in fun and cool ways. I think Marvel Studios is nailing it in their quest to expand onto the small screen, and I really look forward to the movies and shows interacting and intersecting even more. The pandemic pumped the brakes on that, but it’s only a matter of time.

It’s that time of year again. The end of it. And at the end of the year, everybody on the internet gets together and shares their Best Of lists for the previous year, this one being 2021. I’m no different. I’ve got favorites to talk about and share, and I’m happy to share them with you fine readers. Perhaps you’ll even agree with some of my choices!
As always, I don’t really listen to new music or read books, so I don’t have choices for those. That makes getting to six categories rather difficult, but I find ways to manage. Then we can dive into the really fun stuff! My favorite movie of the year? My favorite TV show? I was surprised by this one. How about video games? Or especially comics? There was a lot of great stuff to enjoy this year. I don’t claim to experience everything. I missed a ton of those really niche, arthouse movies. And I didn’t even up playing too many new video games. But I had a really good year, I think. And I’m looking forward to what this fancy new year has to offer.

Whoo baby, what a movie! I’ll admit to being mostly lukewarm about Marvel’s superhero movies this year, despite liking all of them. But now we have Spider-Man: No Way Home and I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is such a powerhouse of a production company! I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is so damn smart when it comes to utilizing their properties and bringing the very best movies to bear on the big screen. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a superhero movie marvel.
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
I cannot heap enough praise on this film. I have been watching Spider-Man movies all of my adult life. The first Tobey Maguire Spidey movie came out after my freshman year of college, and I haven’t missed a Spider-Man movie in the theaters since. And I’ve enjoyed them all. I even liked the Amazing Spider-Man movies. And I especially loved Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With No Way Home, these filmmakers have done the seemingly impossible. They have taken all of our nostalgia, all of our expectations, all of our hopes and dreams, and have put together a truly spectacular movie, and a truly amazing Spider-Man movie on top of that.

Spider-Man: No Way Home comes out this week and we are going to celebrate that greatness with another Spider-Man-themed List of Six! That’s how search engines and internet synergy work, right? Honestly, I have no idea. More web-savvy readers would be shocked at how little I know about making this blog work. But enough about me, how about spider-based comic book characters?
Once upon a time, I wrote a list of spider-themed heroes and villains other than Spider-Man. Because there are a lot. I’ve decided to do that list again, because there are a lot. It’s just plain fun! From Marvel to DC to Image to beyond, spiders make for good characters. Or they also make for bad characters! We’re about to find out!
