Sony remastered Spider-Man and changed the character model from the stock one X-years ago to one that looks an awfully lot like Tom Holland.

It’s actually Jamie Foxx returning as Electro… and we’re not sure if it’s the same one or a new one.

I actually liked the Toby McGuire trilogy as well (emo/dance scenes excluded) and I think doctor octopus’ energy research could be a catalyst to find a way into the spider verse. It’d be nice to have a three of them

Would have enjoyed them if McGuire wasn’t so underwhelming and unpalatable. Holland was a zillion times better and even Garfield was though he was a bit too emo for me. I love Doc Oc as a character.

It did. Sony said they’re movies take.place in the MCU but won’t affect the MCU unless Feige produces the movie.

Sorry for nitpicking,: But he even spelled it out for you, it’s Thai food not Chinese. (-‸ლ)

Except many asian restaurants identify as Chinese despite offering Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. My local one “China Beijing” does amazing Pad Thai and Vietnamese spring rolls.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to claim Chinese has become the Band-Aid or Kleenex of asian cuisine.

I dont know where you’re from, but where i live we call Take out Thai food, Thai. We call veitnamese food, Pho, and korean food korean. Because they are distinct from each other.

Ehh, I could go either way on this debate. Our nearest Chinese place has items on the menu from Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisines. The local sushi joint? Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese dishes. Our favorite Thai place? Well, it’s actually just Thai. They’re pretty on point. My preferred Korean takeout? It has Korean, plus one or two items of Chinese and Japanese origin. Our favorite Vietnamese place? Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai dishes. Point being, lots of people get “Chinese” without regard for—or oftentimes even an awareness of—where the cuisine originated. I’m not saying that’s a good thing.… Read more »

Where I live, we also have restaurants that brand themselves as “Asian fusion.” It’s not unusual to see Pad Thai offered on the menu along with Beef Bulgogi, Schezuan Chicken, and Pho.

I’ve literally never heard of this before, so I’m extremely interesting in knowing what region you’re from.

It’s probably less to do with region, and more to do with size of the city/town and how diverse the population is. In my small Wisconsin hometown, the Chinese restaurant also had Thai and Japanese, just because there was no other competition, the locals just called it all “Chinese” anyways, and it attracted out-of-towners that were dying for good sushi.

Making the best seemingly innocent yet inappropriate comments at the worst time is a rare skill, but a truly wonderful thing to behold. If you can give the audience whiplash at a funeral but still not piss anyone off, you’ve got talent.

Nope; only that, at the moment she took a bite, he described it in an extremely disgusting and revolting way, which she then imagined.

Did they plan it carefully thou? Hulk didn’t work out so well so the Norton movie is just kinda in the MCU. Outside of Cpt. America and Avengers they didn’t really reference it outside of a little Name- / eventdrop. They added ultron a few month before Antman and therefore had stark invent ultron. they did Civil war without the X-Men and even spiderman was just written in afterwards as they got the rights to it and he didn’t have any major part in it. Was the end product good and entertaining? Were the last 2 avengers movie a worthy… Read more »

Somehow, and I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but SOMEHOW . . . I get the distinct impression you’re not terribly fond of the Sonyverse Marvel movies. 😛

“Ugh, god Tim, that’s disgusting, do you have to talk that way during our date night, now all I can think of is crusty balls when I look at my food” isn’t quite the rimshot punchline you’d want to end a strip.

The MCU doesn’t really harmonize. There were cracks before, but things have just been blown open since Endgame. The way that movie ends with everything “back to normal” is just insulting to the theme of dealing with trauma that the movie started out with. Far From Home just brushes the whole thing off as a blip, that didn’t having any lasting effects on anyone’s psyche. Also with Far From Home, it turns out that Iron Man built a fleet of death drones that can kill anyone in the world at a single command; it totally flies in the face of… Read more »

Agree completely.

But I’ll add that there’s very little about the future of the MCU that I’m excited about. Don’t really want to see Woke-vengers.

Theres a difference between diversity and wokeness. Diversity is like a neighborhood full of all different ethnicity and modes of thought and everybody at least respecting one another even when they disagree. Wokeness is like a marching band with no musical talent clanging down your street at 1am. They assigned the positions and instruments based on an ever shifting metric of perceived oppression instead of talent and demand you come out and cheer for them or they’ll stand outside your house and play till you do. Anyone that has the gaul to complain that they need to sleep so they… Read more »

My view of wokeness vs diversity: Diversity is more “This black director has done historically black films in the past, and this brings a certain perspective which adds value to the film.” Wokeness is more “We have a black director because he is black,” or “This film should be considered amazing because we have a black director (not because of what filmography/talent/etc this actually brings.”

The Oscars have just instituted rules that nominees for “Best Film” (iirc) must have a certain amount of minority representation in the cast and crew. That’s wokeness, not diversity.

The MCU in particular has not been too bad. Maybe a hint or two of the crusty nutsack geting too close to the food in captain marvel but overall they’ve been more successful than most doing diversity right when they try than some other studios up to this point. For example Black panther, A+. Mostly black cast but everything felt natural, well as natural as can be for superhero fiction anyway. Nothing felt forced in there and it was an enjoyable romp. Captain marvel, C. Not the worst offender I’ve ever seen but borderline. Yes your an established character who’s… Read more »

Sometimes I have difficulty reading the comment section of your comics Tim. I know you won’t read this (cuz more than 20 minutes have passed) but The respect I had for you has easily gone off the charts (up, like way up) for your analysis of media, race, and ethnicity. Thank you. I appreciate you so much more as a creator because of this.

The definition of Woke that I would use is that a person is aware that racial inequalities exist and that they themselves have biases. The Simon Wiesenthal Holocaust Museum in LA has two doors going into it. One says “Biased” and the other says “Unbiased” The “Unbiased” door is locked.

I am a bit wary of Sony deciding to exploit this…I liked Toby’s but disliked Garfield’s (too mean) versions, but at the same time the potential of a live action Spider-verse is reeeeally cool. Seeing these guys come back and do their Spider men in a whole crazy multiverse mess up is a dream come true. Oh and in reference to someone above, who said they did not deal with the blip and its effects enough in Far from Home…I think it would take a lot of movies to really explore it properly, and there is the chance to do… Read more »

Not only is this a drawing of Tim, but that story ended a long time ago. If you look at the Archive you’ll see that Tim ended that story in November of 2012 and in the printed version he released shortly after. Any depictions of Ethan now are standalone or in the new(er) story Analog and D-Pad.
