The Monster Scifi Show Podcast – Spider-man Homecoming

Here is another spoiler filled podcast review of Spider-man Homecoming from a couple of lovable webheads, the Monster and Mr. Gene.

Is this the best Spider-man of all times? How does Tom Holland stack against Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield? Do you prefer organic web-shooters over the cartridge web-shooters? How many more questions are you willing to read before you listen to this great podcast? One? Two? Just stop reading, ok? HAHAHA, that was another question you read.

Why is Spiderman dropping his balls to ring in the new year?



Seriously, why? Is this some stunt to make Spiderman: Turn off the Dark a big broadway hit? Well, not really because this show will stop performing on January 4, 2014. So, I wonder why show Spiderman making an appearance during the one of the highest touchstone moments in human history? Hmmm. Ah, it is to promote the next Spiderman movie.

I am so against this idea not because it not smart marketing but because this once beloved here is just a hollow hero. We have Peter Parker no more in the comics because Doc Ock switch consciousness. Doc is now running the show as the Superior Spiderman. Over on the Ultimate universe, Peter is dead and Mike Morales is taking over this role. And now, Andrew Garfield is the Amazing Spiderman which in fairness, I thought the casting was great to take over the role from Tobey until I saw the last movie. Fuck all this shit!!!!

Do you want me to tell you how I feel about the next Spiderman movie or would you like me to show you? Screw it, I am going to show you.


I am truly, truly pissed off with what has happened to one of my favorite heroes!!!

Amazing Spider-Man 3 is on the way along with Venom and Sinister Six | The Verge


Let me start with this – the Spiderman universe is not the same as the Avengers universe. I know, Sony, I get it – you’re trying to have you own Avengers movie but here’s the problem: you gots 1 hero and have a shitload of villains – the Avengers are multiple heroes and have a shitload of villains. The two are not the same. Fleshing out the Spiderman universe, whereby, the stories are connected – I am all for that. However, you run the risk of getting tied down to the material/actor/director that if you need to change or shift storylines, we have to start over again with another god forsaken reboot.

I can not fathom a Venom movie albeit Spiderman 3 with Tobey. Is this new movie about Venom tread the same grounds as was done before or are we getting the updated Venom with Flash Thompson wearing the suit and working for the government? And here we go again, we are going to get another origin story but in this case, a less familiar character as a hero instead of a Venom as a villain.

Regardless, Sony just call this new move – Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. If shit is going to get real, Spiderman is going to need back up and I’m not talking about Firestar or Iceman.



Sony Pictures has big plans for the Spider-Man universe. Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wont be hitting theaters until March, the studio is already announcing three new movies in the franchise: a third Amazing Spider-Man film, a Venom film, and a film featuring The Sinister Six — a group of Marvel supervillains. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will begin production this fall with a planned release date of June 10th, 2016. Marc Webb, who directed the first two Amazing Spider-Man films, hasn’t signed on to direct it just yet, but Sony Pictures says that it hopes hell return.

The studio appears to be interested in recreating Marvels success with The Avengers. “Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story,” Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who will produce the three new films, say in a statement. Sony Pictures has assembled a broader team to oversee all three upcoming films as well, ensuring that a continuous tone and plot arc tie them together.
