I wasn’t sure if Black Widow would hold up to a second watch. It does. It might actually come off better now after seeing Yelena in the Hawkeye series. I enjoyed every second of that show, but really they just could have given us six episodes of Yelena and Kate hanging out and shooting the shit and it would have been worthwhile.

Up next is the first Spider-Man movie. Well… the first of the third incarnation of the Spider-Man movies. The first two Tobey Maguire movies rank among my favorite super hero movies ever. I haven’t seen either of the Andrew Garfield movies and the third Maguire wasn’t bad but it wasn’t that good either. I am not ready to say that the Tom Holland version of Spidey is the best, but when rolled into the greater MCU the three movies, especially the third, are pretty friggin’ fantastic.

What they are is great movies. What they are not is on Disney+. We have the first two on iTunes. I’m going to have to grab the third movie soon. I told Harry I’d get it when it came out, and it’s been out for a while now. Come on, Robert. Keep your word.

Not tonight though… tonight I am going to bed. Sleep tight, gentle readers.

Our Personal Spider-Man Saga

As of a few minutes ago all four of us have seen the new Spider-Man. Given the current Covid/Omicron state there was no way Jen and I were going to see it in a theater. Sorry, Mickey, it just isn’t going to happen.

How then do we see the movie while still staying ridiculously, hyper vigilant against the plague?

One way is, to borrow a phrase from the Grumpy Old Geeks podcast, to go to Sweden. (Thepiratebay is located in Sweden…. Get it?)

Pirating works but there is the moral aspect of taking something that many people worked terribly hard on without giving them their due. The solution? Before we watched our horrible pirated file, Jen bought two tickets to a showing. There, moral questions answered. There is still the moral question of not spending money on concessions, but I can assure you that we would not be doing that anyway. There is zero chance we would stand in line near other people. Covid, you know? Speaking of Covid, our little work around means there were two open seats that could help with social distance.

So we’ve seen a horrid quality copy of the film, and the studio gets their ticket sales. We will further make it up to everyone by buying it when it gets to iTunes.

As for the movie itself? You’ll get no spoilers from me. You’re welcome.

Spoiler Avoidance

A new episode of Hawkeye came out yesterday. We haven’t watched it because Harry is coming home tonight and we want to watch it with him. Yesterday morning I started seeing a lot of social media accounts tied to cast members from the now cancelled Marvel Netflix shows posting pictures of Charlie Cox. Uh oh. Is that a spoiler? Did Marvel announce something? Did he show up in Hawkeye? Even worse, does he show up in the new Spider-Man?

Spider-Man No Way Home is out in theaters now. Harry is going to put on a radiation haz-mat suit and see it in a theater next week. I am not. I will be waiting for it to come to Disney+.

I am now in full Spoiler Avoidance mode for both things. At least Hawkeye we can get out of the way quickly. No Way Home though… I don’t want to know anything, not even a tiny thing. Nothing. lalalalaICantHearYou.

I don’t think they have announced when No Way Home will start streaming. The only thing Google found was sometime in 2022. It’s going to be a long wait, folks. A long wait.
