Spiderman: Homecoming

Phase 3, Episode 4

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man joins the MCU in his brand new, stand-alone (sorta) movie. It's Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Zendaya and Michael Keaton as Vulture. Directed by John Watts.

Mike and Pat discuss the main ways they enjoyed this return to form Spider-Man from the comics, even though they start mixing alternate worlds with certain characters. Pat isn't a fan of M.J. actually being Michelle and not Mary-Jane even through Peter doesn't meet Mary-Jane until after High School and his real love is Gwen Stacy! (Okay, calm down, Pat) And Mike pines over more stand-alone films where cramming in connections to the MCU doesn't impair the storytelling.

But they both love Michael Keaton portrayal of Vulture, a sympathetic villain, who deserves another crack at the web-slinger in future stories.

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.
