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!
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!
Be still my geeky heart, LEGO debuted a gigantic Daily Bugle set yesterday! This thing is a beast, with like a dozen mini-figures, multiple settings and just so much going on that the picture I’m posting does not do it justice!
Go to the official LEGO site and zoom in on some of these pictures, people. This is a thing of beauty!
Of course, this massive LEGO set is also going to set a person back $300. Will I pay that much for this giant LEGO dreamscape? Maybe…I haven’t decided yet. It comes out on June 1, so I have time to mull it over. The biggest problem is that I don’t have anywhere to display it. I’ve already got LEGO models on the floor in my little apartment because I don’t have table or shelf space anymore.
But this is still beautiful! There’s a bunch of heroes, including Spider-Ham, Daredevil and Miles Morales, and a ton of villains, including most of the original Sinister Six, like Sandman, Doctor Octopus and the likes of both Venom and Carnage. They even through in some anti-heroes like Punisher, Blade and Black Cat! How neat! Plus civilians like J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson. There’s a Robbie Robertson LEGO!
A LEGO Marvel set this size opens up a lot of potential going forward. Marvel hasn’t done too great with LEGO in recently years…largely because Marvel doesn’t have a lot of vehicles, and they were staying away from the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four for a while for stupid reasons. But perhaps we’ll get a Baxter Building one of these days? I’m holding out for an X-Mansion for damn sure. There’s so much potential for good X-Men LEGO!
Here’s hoping my wallet can survive the experience!
There’s a new trailer for the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, and it looks even more phenomenal than before!
That’s comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham, and he kills it! And Nic Cage as Spider-Man Noir! And just look at that trailer! I was skeptical about this whole thing back when it was first announced — because Spidey is in very good live action hands these days, and we don’t need a saturated market — but this looks funny and heartwarming!
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out in December!
I dunno you guys, I haven’t been getting the proper amount of sleep this week. I am beat! And I don’t know what else to post today. So how about an official collection of all the Marvel Rising: Initiation cartoons? I dunno, they’re pretty fun. And it’s got awesome animated cartoon Squirrel Girl teaming up with awesome animated cartoon Kamala Khan! That’s pretty darn cool!
Though the funniest thing is how badly Marvel wants to change the name of Spider-Gwen to Ghost Spider. It’s insane. How does that name even work? Just because her Spider-Girl outfit is white? I thought these people were professional writers?
