You might have already read my post about all the easter eggs regarding Harry/his family from Spider-Man PS4. But there’s one in particular that got my interest: Emily’s middle name and mother’s name being “Marilyn.” Now for most people the name “Marilyn” will bring to mind Marilyn Monroe, definitely the most famous Marilyn out there.… Read More The very interesting Osborn Family easter egg in Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 game
I think everyone knew Norman would be back sooner rather than later in Amazing Spider-Man, the actual question was, is he gonna be good Norman or evil Norman?

A few days ago it was announced there would be a Werewolf By Night Disney+ movie! A tie-in to the upcoming Moon Knight I’m guessing.
