Get ready to head back into the Spider-Verse this weekend when Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man kicks off its epic four-part "Return to the Spider-Verse" event! The new event will serve as a sequel of sorts for the original Spider-Verse event that took place last season. Details on the plot have yet-to-be revealed, but the storyline is said to follow Spider-Man & Miles Morales for the most part, which likely means it will center around Peter trying to find a way to get Miles back into his own dimension. On another note, IGN has obtained a ton of details on which Spiders are set to appear and I've broken it down for you below: Part 1 Ben Diskin, who voiced Eddie Brock/Venom in The Spectacular Spider-Man & Spidey himself in Lego Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled, will debut as Blood Spider. Christopher Daniel Barnes, best known for his iconic portrayal of Spider-Man/Peter Parker »

This week I wanted to read a classic Spider-Man story I hadn’t had a chance to read yet, Kraven’s Last Hunt. While I’ve certainly been aware of Kraven through the years, he was not really on the level of Green Goblin or Black Cat in my book so I hadn’t read many of his adventures.
Boy was that a mistake. Kraven’s Last Hunt has to go down in my book as my favorite Spider-Man story. If I had to compare it to anything, it would be like if Quentin Tarantino penned a book for Marvel. The mood is creepy throughout. The first image alone, with Kraven crouched on the ground front and center on the page, shows how ferocious, evil, and plainly insane the character is. I love how J.M. DeMatteis was able to portray Kraven as clearly insane but with enough sanity in him »

Freeform – Disney’s television network, previously known as ABC Family – has given the greenlight to Cloak And Dagger, and it’s big news for the ABC offshoot. While the main network boasts Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter on its roster, and Marvel’s Most Wanted and John Ridley’s Marvel project on its development slate, Freeform has been slower to jump into the superhero pool. Cloak And Dagger will change that, though, bringing a teen romance of super proportions to its younger audience.
Cloak and Dagger are actually two teenage runaways named Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson. Tandy is a 16-year-old girl who runs away from her millionaire mother in Ohio, due to emotional neglect. Tyrone is a 17-year-old boy with a speech impediment, who runs away from his Boston home after failing to prevent his friend being shot by the police. Both Tandy and Tyrone arrive in New »

Marvel already has a large presence on the small screen, with ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, along with four Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, the upcoming Luke Cage and Iron Fist). Variety reports that another one of the studio's comic book properties, Cloak and Dagger, has been given a straight-to-series order on Freeform, the cable network formerly known as ABC Family. The show will bypass the traditional pilot phase with this series order, but it isn't known how many episodes we're getting in this first season.
Cloak and Dagger will be based on the romantic comic book series of the same name, which follows the title characters, also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson. The story tracks these teenage characters from much different backgrounds who become connected when they gain mysterious new super powers, while they start to fall for each other. Tandy has the ability to shoot "light daggers, »
