That Sony/Disney Spider-Man Kerfuffle and Gamescom 2019

This week in the Pretty Much Weekly, we get down to some of the gritty details about the Sony/Disney Spider-Man deal, Gamescom 2019 has begun, and The Sims 4 releases a much anticipated game pack! Tom Holland is officially leaving the MCU I just want to set the record straight here. At this present time, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is no longer a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Sony owns...

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. Fight me. Or just watch Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s honestly my favourite live-action Spider-Man film to date. A disclaimer: there are major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame in Spider-Man: Far From Home. So it’s better to go see it before this one. In fact, Spider-Man: Far From Home is the official end to Marvel’s Infinity saga (or “pha...

Spider-Man: Silver Lining

Silver Lining starts off like the previous DLCs. You’re slowly introduced to the main storyline and all the side missions. Except this time, you know immediately that this is going to be better than Turf Wars. Hammerhead’s men have been nicking Sable’s stuff, and so Sable appears to take it all back. Hammerhead is now an angry cyborg and Spider-Man knows he and Sable have to team...

3 Reasons You Should See Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

You might have already seen it, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse officially comes to cinemas January 3rd! And if you haven’t already seen it, well, you better get your act together and go ASAP. Ben and Ashton have three flippin’ good reasons why!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Ashton’s Thoughts

Animation has often put adults off from even watching certain films and television shows. I remember the fact that my mum always refused to watch The Simpsons because it was “a cartoon” and the difficulty I have in trying to explain the exceptional Bojack Horseman to more discerning adults. Often when people think of animation they think of Shrek, Monster Inc., or The Lion King. Whilst all excelle...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Sarah’s Thoughts

By now, everyone is pretty familiar with the Peter Parker turned Spider-Man story line. Toby Maguire portrayed a great version of the geeky photographer Peter Parker in Spider-Man (2002), Andrew Garfield brings the cheeky badass we expect of Spider-Man to The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), and Tom Holland actually pulled off playing both personalities in Spider-Man Homecoming (2017). Whether you love ...

Spider-Man: Turf Wars

I liked the first part of Spider-Man DLC The City That Never Sleeps. I liked it. It was more of the same but I liked it. I hoped the next parts would be better. This … this is not better. What made The Heist fun was the relationship between Black Cat and Spider-Man and how that affected Peter Parker’s relationship with MJ. The gameplay might have been more of the same, but we got to see more...

Spider-Man: The Heist

The first part of Spider-Man‘s new DLC pack The City That Never Sleeps has hit the PS Store! Now that you’ve saved the city from impending doom, it’s time to return to being your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man! Since the disappearance of Fisk, the streets are just begging to be owned by someone, and the Maggia crime family are raising their hand. And guns. At each other. Caugh...

Venom

When director Ruben Fleischer was first attached to Venom and the rumours of an R-Rated, more grown up superhero story (Logan anyone?) were floating around, I was pretty excited. The Zombieland director was potentially a great choice for the film and when Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams were attached as the leads – my excitement understandably grew. Hardy and Williams are two of my favourite...

5 Things You Can Do in Spider-Man!

If you haven’t yet grabbed yourself a copy of Spider-Man then it’s probably because you don’t own a PS4, and for that I will bestow you with a moment of silence. … If you do, however, own the only platform you can play this amazing game on and have not managed to get your hands on it, then I implore you: fix this horrible mistake you are making! And while you’re waiti...

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Have you ever wanted to swing and glide through New York City, scuttling up and down skyscrapers and stopping only to beat up bad guys? If you answered yes, then you’re going to want to get your hands on Insomniac’s new Spider-Man game on PS4. It captures the amazing feel of being a superhero with an entire city as your playground.
