Ever since Sony and Marvel went all Henry Clay and made a great compromise to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, everyone has been wondering which iteration of ol’ Web-Head we’d be seeing. Will it be Peter Parker, the New York nebbish with a heart of gold? Will it be Miles Morales, the Ultimate Universe’s best and brightest? Or would it be Spider-Ham, an anthropomorphic pig named Peter Porker who has risen to prominence once more as a result of Spider-Verse?
Okay, so there’s no chance in hell that it’ll be Spider-Ham, but the latest intel suggests that it won’t be Peter Parker either. Or at least not the version of Peter Parker you might expect. On today’s Nerdist News, join your friendly neighborhood Jessica Chobot as she breaks down the latest Spider-Man news faster than J. Jonah Jameson can snarl, “Parker! My office!” (Which, in case you don’t know, is really fast.)
Today’s show is brought to you by Dragon Ball Xenoverse, the new Dragon Ball Z fighting game from Bandai Namco Games. In fact, we had such a good time with it around the office that we went full Super Saiyan. And you know what they say — you never go full Super Saiyan. You can see the results later today right here on Nerdist.com…
