We're swinging into action with a spotlight on Nicolas Cage's electrifying move to live-action as Spider-Man Noir—it's a twist that'll have Prime Video viewers clinging to the edges of their seats. But the web of intrigue doesn't stop there. A courtroom drama unfurls as Marvel defends its secrets, striking at the heart of online spoiler culture.

Plus, Disney's coy release tactics for the MCU have us questioning what caped crusades lie ahead. Strap in for a hyperdrive through Disney's streaming empire, where Disney Plus emerges as the financial Jedi despite ESPN+'s stumble in the Sarlacc pit of profitability. This chapter isn't just about the numbers; it's a hero's journey into Marvel's expanding universe on Disney+. 'Daredevil Born Again,' 'Ironheart,' and 'Agatha All Along' are just the tip of the vibranium iceberg. Over in the DC dimension, Frank Grillo's addition to 'Peacemaker' Season 2 promises to supercharge the series. And between you, me, and the warp core, William Shatner's return as Captain Kirk might be on the horizon—with a little digital de-aging, of course.

Finally, it's a farewell salute to Roger Corman, the undisputed king of cult cinema who catapulted many a Hollywood A-lister from obscurity to stardom. We're rolling the credits on his illustrious career, spanning low-budget triumphs to trailblazing indie films. Corman's legacy is a masterclass in moviemaking magic, proving that even the most modest of beginnings can lead to an empire of entertainment.
