Pat Whalen is a lifelong comic book geek.
Mike Field is a filmmaker and storyteller.

So naturally, a bulk of their conversations surround the world of the Marvel movies. Some consider the MCU one of the greatest achievements in modern-day filmmaking and others just think they’re comic book movies.

Each episode they'’ll tackle one film and discuss the differences between the comic book and what’s on-screen. They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Phase 3, Episode 11
    Peter Parker is back and. he's on vacation? It's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider-Man:_Far_From_Home (Spider-Man: Far From Home). Directed by Jon Watts. Starring Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    After coming down from the high that was the last 45 minutes of Avengers: Endgame, this palette cleanser isn't what the doctor ordered, but we're getting it anyway. Mike works through his dislike of the character that is Ned, through no fault of the actor, Jacob Batalon. Pat finds very little to like in this movie with exception of the action set pieces. But they both agree that Quentin Beck is played extremely well by Jake Gyllenhaal, even if they don't understand his reasons for unveiling Spider-Man's true identity during the end tag.
    This also marks the end of the Infinity Saga as well as the end of Yet Another MCU Podcast. Mike and Pat bid farewell at the end of the episode, reflecting on the 30 episode adventure they took together. Thanks for listening! But don't despair, we'll still be around...in video form.

    Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    Phase 3, Episode 10
    You ready for all the emotions? It's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avengers%3A_Endgame (Avengers: Endgame) starring everyone and directed by the Russo Brothers. Everything we've all watched for the last 10 years is about to wrap up in this one 3 hour movie and what better to cover it than a long 90 minute YAMP episode.
    Mike Field and Pat Whalen attempt to breakdown all the comic connections in this 22nd MCU movie and figure out the events of this movie and their effect on the MCU past, present and future. That's right, we're going back in time! Remember! As Smart Hulk says, "Time Travel!"
    Mike wonders why Justin Hammer didn't get an invite to Stark's funeral and vehemently shatters Pat's love of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. (Yeah, there's a tangent). Pat gets teary-eyed over Cap's farewell, but struggles to understand which reality Cap and Peggy exist in, since no one at Marvel seem to be on the same page about it.
    It's the penultimate Infinity Saga podcast episode! Join us as we watch Thanos die, then die again.

    Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    Phase 3, Episode 9.
    The 1 billion (worldwide) juggernaut that is Captain Marvel is here to fight the Skrulls, but then the Cree and ultimately to save the world. Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch and Clark Gregg. This modern-day tale, set in the 90s, packs quite the impact on the box office.
    Listen to Pat hate on all the MCU connections, as they contradict much of the canon of the past 20 movies. But it's not all hate, as Pat credits this adaptation of the Captain Marvel character as being spot-on. Mike yearned for an actual final battle between Danvers and the Supreme Intelligence rather than the villain-by-proxy that is Ronan in this movie.
    Discover the mystery behind Danver's real call-sign in the comics, as it was not Avenger, as it was in the movie. Then listen as Pat make the ridiculous claim that the all-time call sign in movie history is Merlin, while Mike corrects him. It's Maverick! It's always Maverick!

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Phase 3, Episode 8.
    Peyton Reed returns to directed Ant-Man and the Wasp starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Peña and more!
    Pat and Mike talk about whether or not this movie unfairly suffers from an audience let down coming off of the epic Avengers: Infinity War. Mike will dive into the various villainous obstacles placed in Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne's way, rather than an actual villain for the movie. Pat will trace the history of Bill Foster, Ghost, Egghead (yeah, he's in this) within the comics, while also breaking down why we're not allowed to call the Quantum Realm by it's true comic name - The Microverse.
    And those dang Sokovia Accords rear their ugly heads in this, much to the chagrin of Mike.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    Phase 3, Episode 7.
    The beginning of the end is here as everyone from every movie team up to get the butt kicked out of them by Thanos, the black order and the outriders in Avengers: Infinity War, directed by The Russo Brothers.
    Pat Whalen and Mike Field break down all the different threads and characters mixed together in the ultimate achievement in world building storytelling. They talk about Tony Stark's incessant need to always be upset about something, the all-too-brief reunion between Bruce Banner and Black Widow: a head nod after not seeing each other for two years and then the transformation of Doctor Strange from complete jerk in his own movie to the only adult in the room for this one.
    And much, much, much more. Listen as we attempt to stop Thanos from snapping his fingers...oh too late.

    Marvel Knights

    Marvel Knights

    Bonus Phase, Episode 7
    A long time ago, in a television world far, far away...Netflix had Marvel shows. Remember?! Mike Field and Pat Whalen discuss the Marvel Knight slate of shows - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher in this week's bonus episode.
    They'll talk about what worked and maybe, didn't work in these shows. They'll lament on missed opportunities both on the side of the creators and on the side of Marvel and Disney. Mike has issues with supporting characters taking the limelight away from the leads, while Pat fondly remembers a time when Danny Rand was the Immortal Iron Fist and the protector of Kun Lun. (Take a drink!)
    Then, for some unknown reason, they start talking about Law and Order and Boardwalk Empire and much more that have nothing to do with the Netflix shows.
    Enjoy the episode!

So excited!

I’m so excited for this podcast to come out. I love Marvel but I’ve never dove into the comics myself. Can’t wait to get a deeper dive on the history of the movies I love!
