Let me share some recap news just in case you been slacking off on reading the news. Gamescon 2019 has been going on this week and this means we are getting tons of video game news. Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is planning to hit the digital stores on Sept 3rd for all platforms. Mortal Kombat 11 has just unvieled the full roster for the DLC pack in which players will be able to play as Joker from the Batman comics, Spawn from his comics created by Todd McFarlane and T-800 Terminator from the Terminator movies. Anime gamers got some news as well from Bandai Namco and Atlus. We are getting some new characters and fun gameplay in the upcoming One Punch Man video game and people can expect to play as Goku’s son Gohan in the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot game. Persona fans can expect to play Persona 5 Royal in early spring of 2020 if you are in the West and not Japan. I also have some sad news for Marvel fans. It’s been reported that due to a financial deal dispute with Sony and Disney, it’s unlikely that Spider-Man will return in future MCU movies. From I heard, it’s not finalized yet, but the chances of Spider-Man going back to Sony is pretty high. Once this happens, there will be two more planned Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland still retaining as Peter/Spider-Man, but since Disney won’t be involved, Spider-Man will have to go on his adventures without mentioning anything from Disney. Which means, we’re going have to forget the moments with Iron Man, Thanos and anything related to the Avengers. This could also mean that Spider-Man could be part in movies with Venom since Sony does own Venom. On a probably good news, on August 29th, Sony is bring back Spider-Man: Far From Home into theaters again but this time, they are going to be showing you deleted scenes that were removed from the original showing. In random news, I saw the Netflix movie Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. I might do a review on this movie, but I will say that this movie was really good. It reminded me of watching the cartoons when it was on TV and still had the same type of humor.

With all this said, let’s go spider fans!

With all this Spider-Man news going on, here are some Spider-Man videos!

That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed your memes and dose of Sony humor!

Stan Lee’s daughter responds to Disney’s treatment towards Stan Lee’s Legacy and Spider-Man

The fans took the news rough about Sony taking Spider-Man back and leaving Disney. Some fans blamed Sony for not letting Spider-Man hang out with the Avengers, while others blamed Disney for being greedy and only wanting Spider-Man to make an extra buck.  There is one person who also took it rough not just about the character, but also personally. Stan Lee’s daughter Joan Celia has something to say against Disney. In a interview with TMZ, here is what she said:

“Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father’s creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy. Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view. When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency. In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

That’s her response to Disney.

Sony’s response to the fans in regards to Disney’s divorce

Image result for spider-man sad

If you didn’t know what’s going on, Sony Pictures and Disney are splitting up due to a disagreement with the finances of using Spider-Man in the Disney movies. According to Variety, it is believed that Sony was to give 5% of the earnings to Marvel and Disney when using the character Spider-Man. With this deal, Sony would let Disney use Spider-Man for merchandising and movie projects such as Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. But now, the reason why there’s a dispute with Sony and Disney is because after the success of Spider-Man: Far From Home in July in which they earned a grossing of approximately $1 billion dollars, Disney demanded that they should get 50/50 of the money. In results, since Sony doesn’t like this new deal, they either want to stick with the old deal or leave Disney in which they will do the Spider-Man movies without any Disney involved. If that is the case, Tom Holland is planned to be in two more Spider-Man titles, unfortunately, they will not have Disney involved such as moments from past movies like Infinity War and Iron Man.

Today I found a response from Sony Pictures in regards to this split. I will share this from this Twitter and I will copy and paste. I don’t know what’s your opinion on this but based on what I been hearing from people I follow, I think Sony made the right choice to leave Disney. As much as I really love how Sony was willing to let Spider-Man team up with the Avengers, I am afraid that Disney would take advantage of Spider-Man for their greedy purposes. Disney already owns Marvel characters and Star Wars and they want Fox Marvel characters. Unless something gets resolved, I don’t want Spider-Man be treated as a marketing scheme for Disney.

Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.

We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own.

Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.

*UPDATE: 8/20/19* Spider-Man movie news: FFH returns to theaters! Spider-Man no longer in MCU?

Image result for spider-man far from home ending

I don’t work for the Daily Bugle, but if I was, I would be filling your timeline or feed about Spider-Man 24/7. I got some Spider-Man news for you and it’s about the movies. I will give you the good news first and then some bad news! I am not J. Jonah Jameson, but I am here to give you the spider scoop!

Following the same strategy as Avengers: Endgame, Marvel and Sony are bringing back Spider-Man: Far From Home into theaters again. The movie will be in theaters in August 29th and it will include scenes and moments that was not present in the first running in theaters. Be careful if you plan to see this movie, this movie takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, there will be spoilers!

Here is some bad news for the fate of this young hero. There might not be anymore Spider-Man MCU movies in the future. According the sources from IGN and Deadline, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated that there won’t be any plans for more Spider-Man movies because of the financial dispute with Sony and Disney. Based on what Deadline is describing, Sony wants more money as opposed to what Disney intended to do which was a 50/50 deal. Since Sony refuses to do this, MCU are willing to let Sony take back Spider-Man. There are rumors that there are two planned Spider-Man movies, but it will most likely not have MCU involved. In results, Kevin Feige will unlikely be the creative lead writer to any Spider-Man movies.

UPDATE: 8/20/19 There could be one chance of hope!

Earlier today, it was announced that the plans with Sony and Disney have been dismissed and Spider-Man wasn’t going to be present in the MCU world. However, there could be hope. According to sources, it is possible for “a deal might still be reached between Disney and Sony.” There could be hope in this news.

Friday Funny 220: Go beyond, young Spider!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another sunny day of Friday Funny! If you are reading this at night, let me say this, welcome back for an exciting night for Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing okay and avoid heat exhaustion and staying away from cold bugs. Before we begin, let me tell you the theme of this Friday Funny. This theme is based on the MCU movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. This movie takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and Peter Parker learns that he has to step up his heroic duties when Nick Fury asks him to save the world without the need of the Avengers. He teams up with the mysterious character named Mysterio and they tackle on the elemental villains such as Hydro-Man and Molten-Man. What’s weird is that in the comics, Mysterio is Spider-Man’s enemy, but in this movie, it appears that he is a good guy from another Earth. I haven’t seen this movie, so don’t give me any spoilers! If you want more Spider-Man in your life, I hope you still have your Marvel Spider-Man PS4 game because Sony is giving away a free update for the game based on this recent movie. Players will be able to receive two free costumes which is the Upgraded Suit (Stark’s suit but with red and black) and the Stealth Suit.  Also in games, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is releasing the Final Fantasy VII fighter Tifa in PS4 and PC in both versions. If love her and you can’t wait for Final Fantasy VII Remake, go get this game either paid or free and buy her DLC! Last but not least, Happy Independence Day or a.k.a Happy 4th of July! 4th of July happened this Thursday and I wanted to share this comment with you. In anime news, get ready for the anime premiere of Food Wars in Toonami. Summer is going to get even hotter because Rightstuf is celebrating 32 years of anime and manga shopping. If you are making money from your summer job, save some money from your paycheck and buy some anime!

Spider-Man mysterious countdown reveals new Spider-Man comic!

Remember seeing this on Twitter?

It’s finally been revealed that the mysterious web number 4 does NOT mean that we’re getting anything related to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movie. Some fans were speculating it was going to be the cancelled Spider-Man 4 movie because of the number webbed 4 and comic artist Alex Ross posted in his Twitter an art sketch of Tobey Spider-Man saving Mary Jane at the same time the countdown was posted.

It’s finally revealed that the countdown was to introduce a comic book miniseries of Spider-Man which will be released in September this year. The Spider-Man miniseries will be led by movie director J. J. Abrams and his son Henry Abrams.

The comic will be called SPIDER-MAN and the first issue will be out in September and the miniseries will have up to five issues. The cover of the issue will be Olivier  Coipel and comic artist Sara Pichelli and colorist Dave Stewart with Spider-Man comic editor Nick Lowe. According to the news, this new comic will introduce a new villain named Cadaverous.

SPIDER-MAN #1

In a interview with TIME Magazine, here is what J.J. Abrams said when talking with Nick:

“Nick had been pressing me to do a book with him,” he explains. “A year or so ago, I started talking about it with Henry and it sort of happened organically. And that has been the joy of this. Even though I’ve been talking to Nick for a long time, weirdly, this feels like it just sort of evolved from the conversations of Henry and I, having ideas that got us excited and Nick being open to the collaboration.”

There is not a lot of details but according to the Marvel site, this new comic is going to be really focused on Spider-Man including his alter ego Peter Parker along with his love Mary Jane and the villain Cadaverous. Here is what Henry commented:

“I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”

Are you guys excited for this comic? First issue comes out in September.

Spider-Man

Every Spider-Man game I ever played!

If you been following online, you would know that I am fan of anime/manga, movies, video games and comic books. If I am not watching anime, I am either writing, reading a comic book or even playing video games. In comic books or even watching a comic book movie, I am a huge fan of Marvel and DC comics. Whether it is either Avengers, X-Men, Batman or even watching TV shows like Daredevil or Arrow, I like superheroes. If you don’t know this, my favorite superhero in Marvel is Spider-Man. I don’t know exactly how did I fall in love with this webbed hero, but there is something different about him that makes him unique. I remember hearing a short documentary from Stan Lee saying that Spider-Man wasn’t someone like Batman or Iron Man who was wealthy popular, more or less, he started off as an average nerd who couldn’t get a date to the prom. Looking at Spider-Man in a different perspective, I still hold on to my opinion that Spider-Man is a great Marvel hero. It has a great origin story and his character as Peter Parker is can be relatable. What makes him even special is that Stan Lee made this character and made him for us that anyone can wear a mask and be a hero

“it always fits, eventually”

  • Stan Lee from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Before I get sidetracked, the reason I am writing this post is because I want to share my gaming experience and tell you all about the games I played involving Spider-Man. With Spider-Man: Far From Home a month a way and E3 coming next week, I want to talk about the Spider-Man games I played in the past and even to this year. As far I know, Spider-Man appeared in video games more than the Avengers and I see him as popular as Batman in the DC comics. I was inspired to do this post after watching the video Johnny vs. Spider-Man.

Here are the Spider-Man games I played. Also, please support and donate to my Ko-fi.

Spider-Verse: The inside scoop of “Alternate Universe Mode” (Spoiler-Free)

Originally, I was going to do a movie review on this topic, but I decided to change my mind and discuss the difference between the original movie and Alternate Universe Mode. There will be minor spoilers but I am not going to cover the entire movie. I want you guys to enjoy this movie as well.

In 2018, Sony released two Marvel movies in the last three months of 2018. In October we had Venom and in December, we had the animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse became a smashing hit that surpassed many other animated movies that it even got an Oscars and knocking down Disney titles like the Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet. I got this movie for my birthday this year thanks to my parents. I got the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack and based on the description on the Blu-Ray version, you can watch the movie in “Alternate Universe Mode”. Alternate Universe Mode is a special mode where you watch the movie, but you watch with the deleted scenes or scenes that was first idea but didn’t make it into the final cut. I decided to take the time to watch this movie in this version to see what was the changes. In conclusion, the movie had a different direction compared to the final product. Here is my top three points I noticed while watching AUM:

Iron Man confirmed in Spider-Verse?

Marvel has many heroes and it’s pretty common in the common books that they meet together. In movies, it can be complicated. Since this movie was done solely by Sony, we don’t have Tom Holland Spider-Man and instead we have adult Peter Parker and young new hero Miles Morales. In a scene with Miles’ parents, Miles mother us making dinner and she tells her husband that the food is Iron Man’s favorite dish. This caught me by surprise since even though it’s a Sony-Marvel movie, the creators of the movie wanted to mention another Marvel character. I shouldn’t be surprised since this is not the first time because in the Spider-Man PS4 game, Peter has made comments about the Avengers and the game includes Easter Eggs of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Still, I can see why they took this off from the movie since Iron Man belongs to the MCU world and Spider-Man shared with Sony and Disney.

Miles’ Friend Ganke Lee

Unlike Iron Man, this character had a role in this movie and it would have played differently than the final version. When Miles gets Spider powers, he turns for help and seek his friend Ganke for help. Together they do tests and results on how can Miles learn to control his powers. One of the teaching methods is watching a Spider-Man movie played by Tom Cruise. We also get to learn about Miles’ conflicting feelings about being the next Spider-Man.

Jefferson and Aaron

In the movie, we didn’t get much information about Miles’s dad Jefferson and uncle Aaron but we did get implied details that Jefferson doesn’t want Miles to get influenced by his uncle Aaron. In the cut scenes, while in the search for Miles, Jefferson visits Miles and asks if he seen him. These two then get into a short discussion in regards on knowing about Miles personally. You can tell that these brothers have different views and opinions that puts a strain into their relationship.

Overall, if you love the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I would recommend watching this mode to see what would have movie been like if they stuck with their first ideas. Did you see this movie? What did you think about this or Alternate Dimension Mode? These are just some of the points I wanted to talk about. I don’t want to spoiler this for you.

Disney XD series Spider-Man plans comeback with new arc!

See the source image

Does anyone remember this cartoon series Marvel Spider-Man? This cartoon appeared in 2017 and it supposed to be a replacement to the finished series Ultimate Spider-Man. It may not be like Ultimate Spider-Man and Spectacular Spider-Man, but it’s Spider-Man! The series is currently on season 2, but the series went on a hiatus that started on August 2018. However, according to Spider-Man voice actor Robbie Daymond, the series is planning to come back and the news site Newsrama states that the series will also be entering new story arcs such as the Superior Spider-Man and the newly introduced Goblin War.

According to VP of Animation and Family Entertainment, Cort Lane made a comment in a interview with Newsrama that with no surprise, the series will continue into the Superior Spider-Man story, but then also it will have Peter Parker come across the story arc known as the Goblin War. They wanted to split these stories into sections these seasons. So far, there is no release date for the return of Marvel Spider-Man.

If you don’t know what is the Superior Spider-Man story, according to the interview, Cort Lane tells that the story is based on a Spider-Man comic book arc where Spider-Man’s enemy Dr. Otto Octavius steals Spider-Man’s body by transferring his mind into Peter’s body and accessing his memories. Peter’s mind is swapped into Otto’s dying body in result. Now that Otto has Peter’s body, he knows about his identity and decides to prove himself that he can be a better Spider-Man by using the powers of Spider-Man combined with justice and his intelligence.

Cort states that the upcoming story and Goblin War arc won’t have the dark elements from the comic books, but it will have some emotional moments where a sacrifice will be made. In the cartoon version, Otto, inside the Living Brain robot, successfully steals Peter’s body and puts Peter’s mind and soul in the destroyed Living Brain robot. This is where the series took the hiatus and this is where Cort focused on other Marvel cartoons like Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel Rising.

What if: Which Spider-Man would win a in a fight? Tobey vs Andrew vs Tom

I found an interesting tweet about Spider-Man on Twitter in regards who win in a fight.

In the movie world, we have had three actors portray this web-slinging hero in the cinema. If you count TV actors, we have a total of five actors! The first actor was Nicholas Hammond who played as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the 1970s series The Amazing Spider-Man. Around the same years in the late 70s, we had a Japanese version of Spider-Man and the actor who played as Spider-Man was Shinji Todo. Shinji Todo played as a character named Takuya Yamashiro and his character played as Spider-Man with a “Power Rangers” vibe but in a dark tone which involved death and suicide; the Japanese live action series is commonly known as Toei’s Supaidaman TV Series.

Getting back to topic, we had three movie actors who took the mask and became Spider-Man. The first actor of the Spider-Man movies was Tobey Maguire and he became Spider-Man in the Sam Raimi versions in 2002 and all the way to 2007 concluding in Spider-Man 3. In 2012, the Spider-Man got a reboot and without Sam Raimi, Marc Webb took control and with the help of Sony, we got the Amazing Spider-Man movies. Taking over the mask, we had Andrew Garfield and he appeared in two movies of the Amazing Spider-Man from 2012 to 2014. The third movie was cancelled because of the negative feedback on the second. With Disney buying Marvel, fans wanted Spider-Man to join the world of the Avengers. It was difficult since Spider-Manis owned by Sony and with the upcoming Captain America: Civil  War coming out, fans was like J. Jonah Jameson and asking for Spider-Man. The dream became a reality and we got a new and younger of Spider-Man to join the MCU. In 2016, we got Tom Holland playing as 15 year old Peter Parker and taking on real life villains like a hero and under the tutelage of Iron Man. Besides joining in Civil War and Infinity War, he also had his own solo movie in Spider-Man Homecoming and he’s going to be in the upcoming 2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Three different actors but they each play as the same character with the same powers. What if these Spider-Men were pitted against each and fought each other. Which Spider-Man would come out as a victor? Let’s go over some facts on these characters to help decide who would win.

Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire 2002-2007)

Starting off, we have Tobey’s Spider-Man. This Spider-Man in my opinion has a lot of strength and endurance. Not to mention, he has dealt with emotional pain when dealing with his friends and enemies and crush, Mary Jane. I like to point out that Spider-Man has incredible strength that could surpass Captain America. In Spider-Man 1, he can hold both Mary Jane and a tram car while dealing with Green Goblin. Iconic in this scene, we have Spider-Man 2 where stopped an out of control train with his webbing and himself. In Spider-Man 3, he faced many enemies and including himself. In this movie, he wears an alien suit that gives him strength but in return, he becomes more dark and aggressive. In the movie, he has to deal with the consequences of his actions and learn to not get stuck on revenge.

The Amazing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield 2012-2014)

In this reboot, Andrew becomes Spider-Man. Even though he only has two movies, this Spider-Man is pretty unique and strong. Unlike Tobey wear he has infinite web fluids in his veins, Andrew creates his own webbing and the same goes with Tom Holland Spider-Man. Andrew Spider-Man, in my opinion, is probably the most agile out of the two; not to mention he is kind of durable. He’s agile as he was able to fight against Electro’s electricity and he has been able to go toe to toe with the giant reptilian villain The Lizard. With the pain of loss, Spider-Man also has a share of pain. In Tobey’s version, he lost Uncle Ben, his idol Dr. Otto Octavius, almost lost the love of his life Mary Jane and he lost his best friend Harry Osborn. In Andrew, he his losses are minimum but devastating. In the first movie, he lost Uncle Ben, his parents, and his girlfriend’s dad Captain Stacy. In ASM 2, he couldn’t help out his fan Electro, his best friend Harry went insane and tried to kill him after refusing to help cure his terminal illness and he lost the life of Gwen Stacy. Losing his girlfriend was so devastating that he stopped helping New York for a long time. He later does come back to help stop the villain Rhino after regaining his confidence. Even though this Spider-Man takes tragedy pretty rough, he still a strong hero and his speed and agility is great.

Tom Holland (2016-current)

This may be the youngest version of Spider-Man, but he’s definitely the strongest. He’s still young as a superhero, but he has potential of becoming an Avenger. Before meeting Tony Stark, Peter relied on his wits and his own tech to take down everyday crooks. In Homecoming, he even took down Vulture without Stark’s spider suit. In strength, Spider-Man has displayed incredible strength that could match up to Tobey. In Civil War, he was able to fight Captain America on his own and lift a piece of airplane parts on his own. In Homecoming, he lifted up broken rubble with his own strength when he was trapped by Vulture. In his Peter life, he had to learn about sacrifices. In Homecoming, he had sacrifice his priorities when learning how to be a hero like Iron Man. He left his team behind during a school field trip to pursuit Vulture and even had to abandon his date with Liz in order to defeat her father in which was Vulture. With Tony’s tech, he’s actually pretty skilled. He has many web shooter gadgets where that can be used on enemies based on style. When he removes the training wheels setting, he has all access to his tech but there is one he would never use and that’s the instant kill mode. If he did used it on Tobey and Andrew, he could instantly win. If he used the Iron Spider suit from Infinity War, he would be able to use his Spider Legs mode for more strength and mobility.  Overall, without Tony’s assistants, Tom Spider-Man is pretty strong and he has enough room for experience. With the suits, he will be able to survive fights and make use of his tools.

Who will win?

With these facts said, who would win in a fight? Comment down below on your thoughts.
