I Cannot Believe There’s Really Going to Be a Morbius Movie

If you told me 20 years ago that third-tier Spider-Man character Morbius the Living Vampire would not just appear in a comic book movie but star in one, I’d have laughed in your face. If you told me 10, or even five years ago, I would have called you a liar. Now, the movie is coming out in a mere six months, and the recent trailer is incontrovertible proof that it actually exists – and I still cannot believe this is happening. Read More >>

The Spider-Verse Connections in Morbius Are Confusing as Hell

Morbius’ first trailer has arrived, and while it mostly focuses on laying out the origin story of its titular vampire, it also suggests that the movie’s going to have some rather direct and significant ties to Spider-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and... perhaps Sony’s excellent Spider-Man game. It’s all a little confusing, but really, when haven’t comic book movies been kind of messy? Read More >>

Spider-Man Noir Lives, and Is Heading to London, for His Brand New Comic Series

Back when the moviegoing world was introduced to a Nic Cage-voiced, Nazi-punchin’, Rubik’s-cube-enchanted Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Marvel Comics had the grand idea to kill the character off as part of Spidergeddon.

The Daily Bugle is on the Hunt for a Major Scoop in its Very Own Comic Book

Two-thousand nineteen: A bad year for the media, by and large.

That’s the real world, at least. In superhero comics? It’s never been a better time, apparently. Read More >>

PSA: Into the Spider-Verse’s Full Spider-Ham Short Is Now Online

Listen, if you don’t love John Mulaney as Spider-Ham, then you and I will just never see eye-to-eye as people. It’s a perfect, goofy performance, all Looney Tunes and slapstick, a homage to old animation and also to one of the silliest iterations of Spider-Man. (Though maybe not as silly as the one where he’s made out of literal spiders.) Read More >>

J.J. Abrams’ Spider-Man Comic Is Incredibly J.J. Abrams, For Better or Worse

It feels glib to cast Spider-Man – the simply titled miniseries that represents J.J. Abrams and his son Henry’s foray into comics writing, alongside legendary Ultimate Spider-Man artist Sara Pichelli – as “The Force Awakens but with more Spandex.” But, for all his love of mysteries, Abrams’ venture into the web of Peter Parker is as much about his past work as it is the webslinger himself.

Spider-Man’s Alter Ego, the Night Monkey, Gets the Official Trailer He Damn Well Deserves
