This week, the gang covers the news coming out of Sony and Marvel concerning the Spider-Man Franchise.

 

Who is Spider-Man? Are you for Peter or Miles? Should comics/films be “forced” to bend to changes in culture?

 

J.K. Simmons induced diatribe aside, we go into our thoughts on the mutually beneficial merger of the two companies interests, and we even get into a discussion on how established comics characters should be handled?

 

Plus, bonus hatred-fueled rant about 50 Shades of Grey for your listening pleasure.


Give us a listen and tell us what you think!
