TFR 111: Spiderman ’77 (W/Guest Paul Andolina)

DISCLAIMER: This cast was recorded a year ago, before the Sony/Marvel Split, before Spiderman: Far From Home came out, and well before Endgame came out, so there are some.. unfortunate anachronisms. We kept them in because it’s a weird time capsule which serves as a stark highlight for recent events.

Hello and welcome! This week we delve into some Marvel Cinematic AU with returning guest Paul Andolina with the 1977 Spiderman Made-for-TV movie!

We also briefly discuss other ’70s Marvel Movie attempts and wax about how far we’ve come and what the future may hold.
