Spider-Man: Far From Home

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.

About the Podcast

Yet Another MCU Podcast
A deep dive into the influences and connections of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Pat Whalen is a lifelong comic book geek.
Mike Field is a filmmaker and storyteller.

So naturally, a bulk of their conversations surround the world of the Marvel movies. Some consider the MCU one of the greatest achievements in modern-day filmmaking and others just think they’re comic book movies.

Each episode they'’ll tackle one film and discuss the differences between the comic book and what’s on-screen. They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

I’m a storyteller.

My very first story was about a detective trying to solve the murder of his best friend. It was also my high school girlfriend’s homework assignment. She got an “A” and then dumped me. I knew even then writers get no respect, but I didn’t care. I fell in love with writing.

In the beginning of every story, there’s nothing. It’s scary. It’s intimidating. It causes the best of us to turn tail and run. Over the years, I’ve learned there’s no greater professional satisfaction than starting that story and seeing it to completion.

I've been creating content for over twenty years, handling all phases of production and including promotion and marketing. I've made web series, short films, feature films, commercials and industrials. I’m a fan of organization, collaboration and other people’s creativity. No one person has all the answers.

And now, I'm a podcast producer and host for Forgotten Cinema, Yet Another MCU Podcast and much more coming from Forgotten Entertainment.
