Um, no. I happen to know, since a friend is actually producing one of the upcoming films, that there is a huge multiverse map about to blow certain fans' minds. Phase 4 will kind of be it’s own semi-contained thing, as opposed to the three phase spanning Infinity storyline. Of course it will likely spill out, like Far From Home came along after the official Infinity conclusion, but...well, that’s all I’m gonna say about that.

Interesting! Too bad that will fall on deaf ears...

We get it. Eric hates female filmmakers.

Maybe we can move on, because I'm confused by what on earth I'm even reading here. :?

Join the club, I'm confused by the whole "Whaddya mean, they've got LOTS of ideas, they're just not telling us yet!...But it's gonna be real big!" spin.

(And why it isn't the "Okay, we thought we'd stick a couple of Multiverses into the third Spiderman, like the animated one did, and see what happens" blue-sky'ing they'd been accused of so far.)

I was surprised to see that whole Spider-Verse sequence on the end of Venom the other night. Totally dumb and stupid film, but that Spidey scene totally didn’t make any sense. So now they’re trying to mix MCU, Sonyverse and Spideverse projects all together? Instead of cool, it’s starting to feel very messy.

In theaters at least, I took that as simply a sneak peek of Spider-Verse, which was coming out only two months after Venom opened. I didn’t necessarily take it as a sign they were “connected” per se (though I fully expect Tom Hardy Venom to team with Spidey in a live-action movie down the road).

Oh, right. The joys of catching up in a different order...!

Um... :?
Since that's NOT Ms. Marvel's costume, I'm guessing that's a comic scene setting up Kamala's geeky hero-fandom cosplay, from the pilot episode.

Obviously. She is, after all, a big fan of Captain Marvel in the comics.

Cool to see a 1950 scene "in color".

I think that's supposed to be the 60's Rob & Laura Petrie kitchen, except that, for some reason, "Laura" isn't wearing Capri pants.

That does explain the dish on the right, though...

Disney+ redesigned the Marvel logo opening of Black Panther to honor Chadwick Boseman:



That's really sweet and cool.

They should have saved that for the start of BP2. Imagine the reaction that would have got if they’d kept it under wraps.
