The Direct Podcast: Hawkeye Finale, Doctor Strange 2 Trailer, Spider-Man: No Way Home Cleanup

By Matt Roembke

Happy Holidays from The Direct Podcast!

On this week's Christmas edition of the show, we bring you the top news, a Hawkeye review, an interview with a star from The Matrix: Resurrections, and some Spider-Man: No Way Home clean-up.

The first teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has arrived! We break down everything going on in Stephen Strange's sequel, and speculate how key frames hint at some high-profile cameos.

Michael Shannon is back as General Zod in 2022's The Flash movie! What does this mean for the future of the Superman franchise?

Hawkeye has sadly wrapped but Disney+ has delivered yet another action-packed finale. We analyze what this show means for the future of street-level MCU, where Kingpin fits into those plans, and when we'll next see Clint Barton and Kate Bishop.

The Matrix: Resurrections star Ellen Hollman joins the show to discuss her super-secret role in the film, what attracted her to this sequel / reboot, and which Marvel hero she'd like to play in the future.

Box office! David Thompson returns to the podcast to break down Spider-Man: No Way Home's historic opening numbers and what it means for the future of film.

Finally, we take some of your questions and topics regarding No Way Home.

THANK YOU for making this such a special holiday season. We cannot emphasize enough how much we appreciate the support. If you haven't already, leave an iTunes review or rate us on Spotify!
