Shocking the world, this week Disney and Sony announced an unprecedented arrangement to bring Spider-Man home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this mini-episode, Blake talks about what it means for the future of Spidey, for the MCU, and how another property that was recently relaunched with a successful film, then followed up by a disappointing sequel, may be just the thing to combine with Spider-Man.

And what’s cool this week? Spider-Verse wraps up in Amazing Spider-Man #14 and 1000 years of history are on display in Justice League 3000 #14
