I hope my readers can forgive the clickbait title – this is a minor gripe that I had in the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil, and I forgot how irritating it was until I started watching The Defenders. In The Defenders, it was when Sigourney Weaver’s villain, Alexandra, speaks with one of her allies, Murakami.

I finally got around to seeing Spiderman Homecoming, and even though everyone else has probably shared all their thoughts on the movie, I figured I’d share mine. Obviously, there will be spoilers from Spiderman Homecoming. When Zack Snyder was given the task of introducing Batman into a universe that was already centered around Superman, many people wondered how they’d do that.… Continue reading With Great Power Comes Great Subtlety: What I Loved about Spiderman Homecoming
