Stuff You Need to Know: Comic-Con in a Nutshell. A Very Large Nutshell.

Ezekiel & Shiva

In case you hadn’t noticed, San Diego Comic-Con just happened. And lots of stuff gets announced and lots of trailers happen and it’s basically just crammed with things. Here, I’ve tried to take the high points of the chaos and condense them into one huge post. There are lots of videos. You might want to go get a sandwich.

  • Firstly, we have tiger. Walking Dead had their Season 7 trailer which held to their desire to keep the Lucilled victim from the end of last season a secret. This is something, to be honest, I’m amazed hasn’t leaked yet considering how the maniacs (read: fans) of the show watch everything they do like overly caffeinated hawks. Regardless, we got a look at Shiva and no doubt the giant feline and Carol got the biggest laughs from Hall H. Khary Payton will be playing the Dread King Ezekiel.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Miles to Go Before Morales

    Tom Holland

    There was once a time when every actor would get a crack at playing Hamlet. And now, it’s Peter Parker. (Arguably at one point, it might have been Bruce Wayne…but anyway…) The good news is that Sony and Marvel are starting with a clean slate and giving us an MCU Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland (pictured above). The bad news is that I’m going to miss Andrew Garfield, because I actually enjoyed the hell out of his first film. And at last, we had a Peter Parker who could banter. And the sideways news is that a bunch of people are pissed that we’re getting Peter Parker again and not Miles Morales, the second Ultimate Spider-Man. And I get where they’re coming from: as the man said, it’s deja vu all over again. Plus: people love the shit out of Miles and want to see the character they enjoy brought to the big screen.

    So before I begin, let me say: I have no dog in this fight. I haven’t liked Earth-616 Peter Parker since Civil War, which ruined him for me. I enjoyed the hell out of the Ultimate Peter Parker, but I left Marvel as a regular reader before Miles arrived. And I’m not necessarily saying I think like any of the points I’m about to make, especially the ones seemingly in defense of the studio(s)–since they’re from the studio’s perspective. I say this because I don’t want you to expend your nerd-rage unnecessarily. Here we go.
