Phase 3, Episode 11
Peter Parker is back and. he's on vacation? It's Spider-Man: Far From Home. Directed by Jon Watts. Starring Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau and Jake Gyllenhaal.
After coming down from the high that was the last 45 minutes of Avengers: Endgame, this palette cleanser isn't what the doctor ordered, but we're getting it anyway. Mike works through his dislike of the character that is Ned, through no fault of the actor, Jacob Batalon. Pat finds very little to like in this movie with exception of the action set pieces. But they both agree that Quentin Beck is played extremely well by Jake Gyllenhaal, even if they don't understand his reasons for unveiling Spider-Man's true identity during the end tag.
This also marks the end of the Infinity Saga as well as the end of Yet Another MCU Podcast. Mike and Pat bid farewell at the end of the episode, reflecting on the 30 episode adventure they took together. Thanks for listening! But don't despair, we'll still be around...in video form.
