Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 6

“Sandman” Marvel’s Spider-Man introduces classic Spidey villain Flint Marko aka Sandman (Travis Willingham) and takes a step forward setting up the ongoing Venom storyline. Sandman is a fairly well know Spider-Man villain thanks to his appearance in the divisive Spider-Man 3 so it makes sense that any adaptation would eventually do its own version of…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 5

“Party Animals” Marvel’s Spider-Man picks up a lingering thread from the previous episode and moves the background plots forward. This episode surprised me as I fully expected things that were dealt with in this episode to linger a while longer. Two major things are dealt with with the first being the investigation into Harry Osborn…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 4

“A Day in the Life” Marvel’s Spider-Man explores the difficulties Peter faces balancing his normal life with his responsibilities as Spider-Man. The work/life balance aspect of a superhero story is fairly standard yet necessary stuff. It is particularly well suited to Spider-Man as Peter Parker is a teenager who has to attend school, help his…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 3

“Osborn Academy” Marvel’s Spider-Man establishes Norman Osborn‘s rival to Horizon High with Osborn Academy; a school created entirely so that his son Harry can have the resources to continue his studies. Naturally a school needs to be attended by more than one student so a fair chunk of this episode focuses on recruitment for the…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 2

“Horizon High Part 2” Marvel’s Spider-Man continues with Peter Parker’s first day at a new school and two villains for him to contend with as Spider-Man. The first episode brought us the Vulture and this episode begins with Peter taking on the Scorpion. It’s clear that this show has a bit of a villain problem…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 1

“Horizon High Part 1” Spider-Man once again receives the animated TV treatment in Marvel’s Spider-Man; a show that takes Peter Parker (Robbie Daymond) back to the earliest days of his superhero career. The series premiered with back to back episodes so I’ll take my usual approach of reviewing them one at a time and not…

Kneel Before Pod – Spectacular Spider-Man

In 2008 and animated Spider-Man TV series started by the name of Spectacular Spider-Man. It was a well developed and respectful adaptation of the iconic Marvel character. It made such an impression on Craig and Aaron that they just had to record their thoughts on the show overall. They cover everything from the characterisation of…

Kneel Before Pod – Spider-Man: Homecoming

Craig, Aaron and Chris assembled to discuss the Sony/Marvel collaborative effort Spider-Man: Homecoming. As always the conversation went on random tangents such as Futurama, other versions of Spider-Man and how Michael Keaton likes to play characters based on winged creatures. Craig and Aaron can be found on this very site and Chris can also be…

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Marvel’s latest outing brings their most marketable character into the fold with Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming. The level of anticipation for this movie was off the charts. I’m talking both as a fan of this character and the Marvel movies but also as someone who lives on this planet. Spider-Man’s extended cameo in Captain America:…
