Two Great Bug-Themed Superhero Movie Trailers!
There have been a whole bunch of new trailers released over the past few days, possibly to get out in front of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie. That’s great news for me, because I love trailers! And here come two great ones!
First up is the new trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. We get a bigger look at the worlds, we get our first look at the Spot, and we get some good looking conflict.
Looks great to me! There seems to be a lot going on, perhaps too much, based on this trailer. But I’m confident they’ll put it all together. Looks like Miles wants to save his father at the cost of saving the multiverse, and Miguel doesn’t want that to happen. Makes sense. But the animation looks beautiful. The Spot looks fun. The kajillion Spider characters are a hoot. We get our first look at Scarlet Spider!
This movie doesn’t need trailers. It’s going to be fire no matter what. Can’t wait! Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse comes to theaters on June 2.
Next up is the first trailer for Blue Beetle, our first look at this movie, and I think it looks good. We get a lot of flavor and character in this Blue Beetle trailer, and I like what I see.
I’ll admit, this trailer does seem to hit all the familiar beats of a superhero origin story. But the charm outweighs the tropes for me. Xolo Maridueña looks like he’s having fun as Jaime Reyes, and I love the family feel. George Lopez looks especially fun. And I think the Blue Beetle effects look really good. Blue Beetle looks like a fun movie. Can it overcome the DC curse that killed Black Adam and Shazam 2? We’ll find out. I think it looks good.
Blue Beetle comes to theaters on Aug. 18.
Let’s Go Across the Spider-Verse!
This trailer came out a couple of days ago, but I’ve been having an off week. Just not feeling it. But hey, at least this trailer is pretty cool. We get a big, fun look at a Spider-Verse full of Spider-People! That counts for a lot.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a hugely anticipated movie, by me and pretty much everybody else. Can it live up to the excitement of the first film? You’re damn right it can, and I really hope it does! I want a sequel that’s bigger and better! I know it can be done! We don’t have much on the story yet, or any really stand out new characters — and no sign of the Spot. But i know this one is gonna be a banger!
Across the Spider-Verse comes out in June.
The Spot is the Villain in Across the Spider-Verse!
I am a huge fan of the super villain The Spot from Spider-Man’s Rogues Gallery. From his cool powers to his underdog nature to his awesome episode of the Spider-Man cartoon from the 1990s, I just did The Spot. He never gets much respect, but hot damn, he’s just been revealed as the villain in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse coming out later this year!
All we have so far is this promotional image, which looks great. The Spot is going to be voiced by Jason Schwartzman, so that’s cool too. And we learned of a couple other new characters who are going to show up. I’m not going to spoil those, because spoiling The Spot is good enough for me.
Holy cow, you guys, this may lead to me getting to own a really awesome Spot action figure! Or a Spot LEGO set! Across the Spider-Verse is going to be huge and now it’s The Spot’s time to shine!
Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/18/21
Well it happened. I saw Spider-Man: No Way Home. And it was amazing! It was spectacular! Oh man, it was better than I had any possible guess! No bloat. No wrong turns. Just pure greatness! Expect my full review on Wednesday, like usual.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Robin & Batman #2 because I am a sucker for some great Robin stories. There are a lot of such stories this week, but I prefer classic Batman and Robin stuff to all the Robins being a team.
Meanwhile, I started playing the Guardians of the Galaxy video game and it’s a lot of fun. Nothing groundbreaking or innovative, just a really fun, interactive story about the Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s neat. Also, I regret to report that I have finally dropped Wonder Girl. It’s just not for me.

Behold Our First Look at Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is inarguably the greatest Spider-Man movie of all time, and could be the greatest movie of all time. So a sequel was inevitable and it’s coming next year! The first teaser trailer/look arrived yesterday and it looks neat as heck.
Part One? So this is going to be a two-part movie? Fascinating.
If I’m being honest, I think the name is a little problematic. “Across the Spider-Verse”? So we’re supposed to differentiate these movies for all time based only on the words “Into” and “Across” And then “Across 1” and “Across 2”? Sounds like madness to me!
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One arrives in October 2022!
