    Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

    You’re a Disney fan (like me!) and so I’m sure you know that this weekend was the D23 Expo!

    Whether you did or you didn’t, we here in Neverland have some fun people (like me!) to share with you all the news! We’re talking movies, toys, legends, and of course Disney Parks! Star Wars! Star Wars…did I mention STAR WARS?!

      Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Spotlight: Dark Days – The Casting #1

      Jim and Eric turn that spotlight on the big book of the week…Dark Days: The Casting.  It’s a dense book that bothered Eric a little more than Jim and it’s up to you to pick who is right.  It’s the fight of the century!  Actually, it’s just a lot of talk and a little nonsense, but in the end, one thing is true…Eric said Duke would be “The Signal”.

Blue Mammoth Games doesn’t want to disappoint any of the lucky individuals who downloaded the game when it was briefly available, so they are now in the closed beta.

                          Spider-Man: Homecoming Non-Spoiler Review!

                          Spider-Man: Homecoming Non-Spoiler Review!

                          Written by Jason Brigger

                          Director: Jon Watts

                          Writers: Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley

                          Starring: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., and Marisa Tomei

                          After a Spider-Man trilogy that hasn’t aged well in light of the newer superhero films, and after a failed reboot by Sony that included two lackluster films (to put it gently), Sony has teamed up with Marvel to make the Spider-Man film that fans have been wanting for decades.

                          This time, Tom Holland takes up the web as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, a teenager trying to juggle his life as a teenager and as the newest New York superhero.  Parker wants nothing more than to be the next member of the Avengers and under the watchful eye of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), he’s well on his way to the being the best friendly neighborhood Spider-Man until Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) sets New York in his sight.

                          After losing his salvage company’s contract cleaning up disaster areas to Stark’s new company, Damage Control, Toomes decides to use alien technology as weapons to sell to the criminal element of New York City.  Spider-Man, after waiting patiently to be Stark’s new protégé, decides to take matters into his own hands and stop Toomes/Vulture on his own, much to Stark’s protest.

                          The Good:

                          No Uncle Ben backstory.  After five previous films, the general audience understands why Parker does what he does and finally the writers realize not to waste time rehashing a story that has been told too many times. Thank you, Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Daley.

                          -Super-villain cameos.  I won’t spoil the surprises but Spider-Man actually fights numerous villains from the comic books and not just nameless thugs.  Fans of the comics will enjoy seeing some lesser known villains get the film treatment and while they may not be more than just filler for Spider-Man to wrestle with, the audience gets to see some fresh faces.

                          -New York City.  Jon Watts directs a film that, much like the comic books, makes New York City a living, breathing character as much as Spider-Man.  Watts makes New York City feel alive with real people and not just stock caricatures that the previous films accomplished.  When Spider-Man swings past buildings, it feels like he knows every nook in the city and actually loves and wants to protect New York.

                          -Tom Holland. Tobey Maguire helped make the cinematic Spider-Man famous but lacked in authenticity when it came to Parker.  Andrew Garfield nailed the persona of Parker but couldn’t figure out the authenticity of Spider-Man. Holland brings the complete package to the role and future actors in this role will be compared to Holland.

                          Holland pins down the insecure teenage angst of Parker but brings the still-learning but humorous Spider-Man persona to the superhero.  Holland has great repertoire as the nephew of Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) and he is confident in his scenes with the veteran Downey. Holland may not have been a household name before this film but after Homecoming, everyone will realize he is Spider-Man.

                          The Bad:

                          Nothing.

                          The Middling:

                          -Aunt May.  It’s not that Tomei does not fit the typical Aunt May-type.  It’s that the film doesn’t give anything for Aunt May to do and despite Tomei doing an admirable job, there just isn’t a chance to spread her wings with this character.  The one redeeming part for Tomei is that she gets the funniest line in the whole film.

                          -The Vulture.  Keaton does a fun and at times, great job as Toomes/Vulture but this is more about the writers “telling and not showing” why he does what he does.  Toomes states a few times that he sells weapons to criminals to support his and his co-workers’ family, and while admirable in a deranged way, that is about as far as his motivation gets in the film.  This motivation is not helped by a small, surprising twist later in the film that feels more forced and included just for shock value rather than for an actual poignant plot twist. We don’t meet Toomes’ family till the final act and by that point, too much time has passed for the audience to care about his motivations.

                          Final Grade: B (Good but the future of this franchise looks great)

                          Spider-Man: Homecoming is the Spider-Man film that Sony should have made years ago.  Despite taking too long to reach an agreement with Marvel, Sony eventually did the right thing and Spider-Man is where he belongs, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  This film is fun from the start and despite a few small hiccups, everyone from kids to adults will enjoy the reboot that actually gets it right.

                              HardAtWork: An Interview With Our Boss Parker

                              We were off work this Tuesday due to the holiday so we weren’t able to do our usual recording in the conference room. However we did manage to snag an interview with our boss! This was recorded at HardAtWorkMatt’s apartment and you will hear the sounds of the thunderstorm that was going on outside. It was epic. Parker has a degree in music, he has an enjoyment for running, and he is old as shit. He’s also our producer so we can blame him for the sound. It’s a work in progress. We hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July!

                                GW1 Issue 111 – Prepping for Comic Con

                                A lot of media companies have confirmed their presence at Comic-Con International (better known as San Diego Comic Con) and panel schedules are taking shape. So we’re talking about the properties that are big enough to get some time at the con and the huge ones that warrant a place in Hall H. But, of course, we have plenty of geek chat and news to hit first.  More

                                  The History of Bad Ideas Podcast, Ep. 183–Breath of Silence!

                                  It may be a long episode but it’s a good one!  The HOBI Gang has two guests this week as Number 1 Fan Doug is in the studio to talk Disney and Jeff’s brother Jim returns to talk wrestling!  The guys are indifferent on Marvel’s Inhumans, Jason learns about Plushophillia, and Jim does the best impressions on the show.  The gang debate Spider-Man Homecoming impacting Wonder Woman at the box office, the greatness of Will Ferrell calling out Mariah Carey, and even discuss why a film should have more Kristen Stewart.  The guys take a walk down memory lane as they list their Top Five Favorite Wrestlers and they all agree on the ultimate Bad Idea of the Week!  This episode is sponsored by the Cincinnati Comic Expo!

                                    Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 130: DC Comics, Eric Shea Out and Technical Difficulties

                                    Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 130: DC Comics, Eric Shea Out and Technical Difficulties

                                    Eric was away for some of the podcast, but Reggie jumped in like the trooper he is.  We did have numerous technical difficulties for which I apologize for, but what can you do?  Those are the things that make a 10+ hour podcast fun and interesting…at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
