Another week full of news from all three corners of The Direct Podcast. 

We kick off the show announcing winners from past giveaways and announcing a new one for listeners! Listen closely for how to enter. 

Before the sizzle reel kicks off we cover not one, not two, but THREE breaking news stories including a Hawkeye release date, Scarlett Johansson's Disney controversy, and a new What If...? TV spot. Those all come before we dive into the top stories throughout the week including Shang-Chi, Michael B. Jordan's Superman project, and some huge casting rumors from the Star Wars universe. 

We are then joined by the incredible director of Loki, Kate Herron. The super-fan turned MCU talent talks about all the missing footage, concept art and other Easter eggs from the hit show that wrapped just over two weeks ago. Herron also gives her theory about what happened with Steve, Peggy, and the TVA at the end of Avengers: Endgame. 

If you have been on the internet any given day in the last seven months, you might've heard that there's a new Spider-Man movie in December. We dive into the crazy hype for Spider-Man: No Way Home's first trailer and why it's unlike anything we've ever seen before.

Finally, we close the show with a mailbag where we answer questions across all three universes from our listeners. 

We can't thank y'all enough for your unwavering support for The Direct Podcast. Be a friend, tell a friend so we can keep bringing you new content!
