Psychedelic 'Spider-Man,' Superman goes evil, 'Star Trek: Discovery' trailer

Perhaps one of the biggest (and most pleasant) surprises of the year, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is garnering rave reviews, and we’re not going to disagree with the crowd. This fantastical, visual spectacle of a film is perhaps the first unqualified triumph for Sony’s animation studio, and a damn fun dive into comic book lore (almost literally). It’s got heart, it’s got action, and it’s got way too many Spider-Men — in a good way.

We’ll be discussing the film with a spoiler-free review by yours truly and DT’s Rick Marshall. We’ll talk about the disappointing debut for Mortal Engines, the epic new Brightburn trailer (horror-meets-superheroes, anyone?), a Venom sequel, Dr. Strange 2 news, the first image from Star Wars land, and much more!

So check out our video broadcast here or on YouTube, Twitch, or Facebook Live, and don’t forget to download the podcast from the links below to take Between the Streams on the road.

Between the Streams

Between the Streams is your weekly streaming guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was and a preview for what is ahead. We tackle the best and brightest movies and TV shows coming your way, including way too many superhero movies — and we love it.

At Between the Streams, we take on the big issues of our times, like whether or not Star Wars is going to go off the rails in the next few years (probably), or why five seasons is the ultimate zenith for any drama that wants to go out on top (thank you, Breaking Bad). We’re just as happy arguing about whether or not Alf was a quintessential ’80s sitcom as we are pondering Hollywood’s increasing penchant for reboots and nostalgia-driven mash-ups like Stranger Things. In short, we’re all about the most awesome, water cooler-worthy entertainment subjects that happen each and every week.

We do the tough part so you don’t have to, digging up all the stories you need to know about each Friday in a fun and succinct weekly chat. So sit back, grab something to drink, and enjoy the ride. It’s all entertainment from here, and let’s face it, we could all use the break.
