Spider-Man's Return To The MCU & Birds of Prey Trailer

This week we’re doing a big news episode! Although we intended to talk about another topic today we decided to lend our thoughts over to the two big topics of the week: Spider-Man’s Return & Birds of Prey, with some small pieces of news sprinkled at the beginning. We finally got our first official trailer to the Birds of Prey coming at us early next year. It seems that DC have finally found their voice moving forward with their next films. Since Sony/Marvel are now playing well with each other (for the next couple of years) we dive deep into what this new deal means for the future of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man & Sony’s Spider-Verse. Is this an absolute win? And are you excited about Birds of Prey? Next week we’ll be talking all about the Joker movie, hopefully with some special guests joining us again.
