Episode 86 – Spider-Man’s Homecoming Homages

The Mixed Marvel Arts Podcast is doing a Happy (Hogan) dance after watching Spider-Man: Homecoming. Brian and Shaun are pleased with Sony and Marvel’s joint offering which helped rejuvenate the Spider-Man movie franchise.

Brian and Shaun catch up on Marvel’s most recent television series, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: LMD; the new FX series, Legion; and even the less-than-stellar Disney X D animated shows. But it’s not all about positively covering Marvel entertainment.

On the surface, Pinocchio and Tony Stark may not seem very similar, but it’s that same surface that serves as the basis – the connective tissue, if you will – for the next Disney-Marvel amalgamation. Both characters are known for their non-fleshy exteriors, but they long to be more than the wood and iron that…
