Join Matt on another AWESOME conversation about Marvel's AGENT CARTER
After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.
A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.
That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ just wasn’t the billion-dollar hit that Sony’s Amy Pascal had been looking for last year — and needed to be in order to keep full control over the character. That movie became the lowest grossing film of Sony’s five Spidey films to date, and forced the studio to instantly start rethinking its plans for the character, even giving up a piece of the franchise.
Well, lets just say this is a hot topic right now and we are gonna jump in the flames and talk about it! Earlier this week, Marvel dropped the bomb that the end of the Marvel Universe as we know it looms later this year in the upcoming "Secret Wars" event. Sounds familiar on MANY levels. I bring back Ronnie from the Screaming Boy podcast and also special guest Josh Calandros to give you our initial thoughts on what to expect and how we feel about this upcoming change. Not only that but soon after we are OPENING THE PHONE LINES to get YOUR perspective. Love it? Hate it? Don't give a sh**? Let us and the listeners know!
And IF we get to it we just might talk our original topic - top 3 comic properties we want ot see on the small or big screen. *Card subject to change

Today at a live press event at Midtown Comics in New York City moderated by Marvel PR man Chris D’Lando, Marvel Comics’ Executive Editor Tom Brevoort and Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso announced that the Marvel Universe will smash together with the Ultimate Universe and will be replaced by Battleworld -- a mashup of many different Marvel realities.
Take a moment to compose yourself.
This huge development has been in the works for some time in Jonathan Hickman’s years-long Avengers saga. The heroes have been trying to stop a series of universe-ending “incursions” where two universes collide with one another. The inciting incident to May’s eight-part Secret Wars event will be when the heroes fail to stop the regular and Ultimate universes from crashing together. The resulting Battleworld will the Marvel Universe going forward.
