The Direct Podcast E60



The Direct Podcast is back with another episode full of news, interviews, and Spider-Man. 

We have the top news from the week including the beginning of the press tour for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Tom Holland and the rest of the cast have been giving interviews and building the hype for the biggest Spider-Man movie of all time. There is also some rumored news about Eternals star Barry Koeghan potentially becoming The Joker in The Batman. Finally, both Patty Jenkins and Chloe Zhao have reportedly had their rumored Star Wars projects. What does that mean for the future of the galaxy far, far away?

The Spider-Man rematch continues into the second franchise of the IP. The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone rebooted the web crawler franchise in 2012. We dive into the ins and outs of one of the most polarizing Spider-Man films. 

Finally, we sit down with the scene-stealing valet of Eternalsi, Harish Patel. Patel plays Karun in Eternals and has capitalized on a storied career to become a fan-favorite in the MCU. In honor of Patel, Matt and Liam create a list of the best-supporting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
