A comic book store for your ears.

Gentlemen it’s been a minute. I was listening to the D23 episode and had a question. You guys were going over the Thunderbolts roster and I agree Ghost is the most shocking addition to this team. So my question is do we see her again before Thunderbolts? The last time we see her is Ant-Man and the Wasp, and I just feel like it could be jarring to just randomly see her again out of nowhere in her ensemble movie after all this time. Could she be a part (even if it’s small) of Quantumania? Let me know your thoughts and keep crushing the content.

Comic Book Highlights

Hey Matt and David! I’ve been comic book movie fan for a long time now but haven’t really gotten into the comics themselves. I was wondering if you all could have a segment that highlights the most essential comic book runs for each of the upcoming phase 5 projects. There are obviously a million books out there, so I’d love to have some experts point out the essential stories that could correlate most to what we expect the project to be. Maybe this would be better served as a Direct article, but wanted to share the idea!

Ps: just put money on the Colts to win the division so let’s ride!

Now we go

Quick Question: Matt often refers to a period with a ton of content as a “now we go” period. What is your favorite “now we go” period? For me, it’s gonna be hard to beat the Eternals-Hawkeye-No way Home triple threat of November-December 2021
