The highly anticipated latest Spider-Man installment was just released last week, so we figured it’s time for some spoilers. Kidding, although we do have a few episode that are overflowing with spoilers in a way that would make Tom Holland jealous, so prepare yourself! The new movie has been absolutely crushing it in the box office, having earned $121.85 million on opening day, becoming the second-highest opening film after Avengers: Endgame.
Spider-Man: No Way Home features our already beloved crew of Peter Parker and co., along with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and a whole lot of familiar faces you may know from some other franchises (*wink*). Check out these reviews of the newest Marvel release, an interview with Tom Holland and Zendaya (long may they reign as our Official Spidey Couple), and an explanation of the ending of No Way Home just in case you couldn’t believe what you saw.
Pop Culture Happy Hour
“Pop Culture Happy Hour” is definitely providing us the shortest review of the newest Spider-Man chapter. In just 25 minutes, hear valid comparisons to Sam Raimi’s/Tobey Maguire’s and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man. Even if you’re on the fringe of the Marvel multiverse happenings, our hosts keep it spoiler-free but explain what they loved and didn’t love about Spider-Man: No Way Home, including the lack of darkness Tom Holland seems to give Spidey, the sweet friendships that are the foundation of this Spider-Man saga, the fan-service, and the revisiting of some of our favorite villains that aren’t just mustache-twirling rapscallions.
Radio 1’s Screen Time
Now for the real show: Tom Holland trying his darndest to not spoil the entire Marvel franchise while Zendaya let’s him struggle. “Radio 1’s Screen Time” released this just before this premier, and it’s still pretty delightful to hear the two try to talk about the movie. Also, hear what host Ali has to say about what’s new in the world of blockbuster films.
Mad About Movies
Spoilers abound! Turn back if ye do not wish to hear! “Mad About Movies” hosts Kent Garrison, Richard Bardon, and Brian Gilla are a producer, a film critic, and a humorist (not necessarily in that order), and they have been waiting for years – even decades – for this installment of Spider-Man. They are ranting and raving all about this movie, and predicting where No Way Home is bringing us in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If you’re truly looking for a spoiler-free review of this third (Ninth? Twelfth? Does anyone actually know?) installment of Spider-Man, “Cinemaholics” has plenty to discuss. They’ll be sharing their thoughts about the previous Spider-Man films/franchises from the past 20 years on top of it all. No promises there won’t be spoilers later in the episode, though.
Raiders of the Lost Podcast
Twin brothers James and Anthony Deveney are rearing and ready to spoil everything revealed in No Way Home. “Raiders of the Lost Podcast” always do their homework and are definitely one of our go-tos when it comes to film reviews. If you haven’t already been listening to them, you’ll be upset you didn’t find them sooner when you hear their review of perhaps Marvel’s most confusing movie yet.
Big spoiler! No offense, but why are you trying to listen to podcasts about No Way Home if you haven’t watched it yet?
Anyway, “Inside Marvel” knows that you have questions about just what happened at the end with that spell Doctor Strange cast on the entire world. How does the erasure of Peter Parker affect the reality of the MCU and Peter’s long history with the Avengers throughout Infinity War, Endgame and other movies? Hosts MT and Brandon Barrick explain the heartbreaking ending and whether MJ and Ned could ever remember Peter.
Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast
We’ll leave you here with the “Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast” reaction to this latest film release. From the sheer star-power this movie brought, along with the return of beloved characters, No Way Home is truly a cinematic (and monetary) feat. Ashley, Matt, and Jeff are Marvel superfans who just want you to love this stuff as much as they do.
