Spider-Men unite as No Way Home heads to digital and Blu-ray

Spider-Man: No Way Home has yet to leave the top of the box office rankings more than two months after its release. Sony Pictures wisely decided not to rush bringing the film to viewers at home as it continues to rack up money. But at last, the time has come for No Way Home to get a digital and Blu-ray release. And to make the announcement, Sony turned to three generations of Spider-Men: Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire.

No Way Home‘s digital debut will occur on March 22. Fans will have to wait a little bit longer if they want a physical copy. The Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release is dropping on April 12. And in a cheeky touch, Sony shared this never-before-seen pic of Garfield, Holland, and Maguire recreating a famous Spider-Man meme.

For context, the meme was born out of this scene from the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon.

In the episode it came from, Spidey confronted his evil imposter, who was actually the Chameleon in disguise. Ironically, Sony’s Kraven the Hunter movie reportedly cast Fred Hechinger as Chameleon earlier this week.

Sony hasn’t specified which special features will be included with No Way Home. However, there is a teaser video that promises 20 additional minutes with Peter 2 and Peter 3, as played by Maguire and Garfield, respectively.

Viewers who prefer to skip physical media and rely on streamers will also be able to get their chance to watch No Way Home. While Sony is currently under contract with Netflix for films coming out in 2022, No Way Home falls under the studio’s deal with STARZ. And that means STARZ will be able to premiere No Way Home on its app and its cable channel later this year.

In a world of Spider-Men, is it wise to be a Morbius?
Jared Leto as Morbius.

Morbius, Sony's long-gestating project starring Jared Leto, finally premiered on April 1 after almost two years of delays. The film centers on Morbius the Living Vampire, one of the many antiheroes in the Marvel mythos, who rose to prominence mainly by antagonizing everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Morbius is the latest in Sony's so-called Spider-verse, its effort to create a cinematic universe mighty enough to compare with Kevin Feige's ubiquitous empire known as the MCU.

Sony's idea is not entirely ridiculous. After all, villains are often the most interesting and compelling characters in any given story. Would Hamlet be as timeless without Claudius? Would The Silence of the Lambs be as thrilling without Hannibal and Buffalo Bill? A great villain is vital for a successful story, perhaps more than a great hero. It's the villain that creates the conflict and drives the story, keeping audiences invested in the action. The comic book genre has the perfect example of this with The Dark Knight, by far the best live-action Batman movie and the outright best comic book movie in the eyes of many. Christian Bale's Batman might be the protagonist, but Heath Ledger's Joker is the star of the show, the puppeteer pulling Gotham's strings.

Marvel's friendly, neighborhood webslinger returned to the big screen in a big way with Spider-Man: No Way Home, franchise star Tom Holland's third solo adventure as the titular superhero and the biggest film to date for Peter Parker's corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: No Way Home has Peter (Holland) dealing with the ramifications of his secret identity as Spider-Man being exposed at the end of 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home. His efforts to turn back time go awry when a spell used by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) rips a hole between dimensions, causing villains from the prior Spider-Man franchises -- including Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus and Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, among others -- to invade the MCU.

In his relatively short existence in live-action media, Daredevil has endured more than the usual dodgy interpretations that befall a character no one quite knows what to do with. There's his supporting role in Bill Bixby's The Trial of the Incredible Hulk -- and the less said about that TV movie, the better.  The 2003 Ben Affleck-led Daredevil fared no better, falling victim to the early-2000s blunder of ignoring comic continuity in favor of Matrix-inspired "coolness." The 2017 Netflix series broke the curse, with superb acting, writing, and directing that honored the longtime Marvel Comics hero and shed a light on a street-level version of the MCU. Yet despite its critical acclaim, the streamer cut the series short after three seasons due to Disney's streaming competitor on the horizon. Fans were devastated by the cancelation, and things looked bleak for this acclaimed iteration of the character's future.

Fast forward three more years and both Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio have reprised their iconic portrayals of the Man Without Fear and the Kingpin of Crime, respectively, in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye. After this second round of embrace for this corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more seems to be in the cards for Daredevil and company in the years ahead. To celebrate Daredevil being born again and completing its migration from Netflix to Disney+, these are 10 of the best episodes from the TV series.
10. Cut Man -- Season 1, Episode 2
One of the most famous things Daredevil has become known for is its gripping one-take hallway fight scenes. There's one in each of the three seasons, and they're all exceptional showcases in martial arts choreography and cinematography. In general, the series does an excellent job at conveying the incredibly high stakes the titular hero and supporting cast face in such an intimately scoped setting.
