Subscribe To Hero Blend #31: Looking Back At A Summer In The Marvel Multiverse Updates


The summer of 2014 has been a fascinating season for the comic book genre as a whole, but it’s even more interesting when you notice that in the past few months we’ve seen three very distinct looks into the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse. More than just the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which brought us James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, this broader spectrum also includes the likes of both the X-Men and The Amazing Spider-Man, which all come off the pages of Marvel Comics and just happen to be divided on the big screen by different studios holding the rights to separate and distinct groups of characters. To say that it’s been a bit of a mixed bag would be a slight understatement, as it’s been a season of both disappointments and surprises.

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the Andrew Garfield-led reboot that came out in 2012, kicked things off in the first weekend of May (a date that now traditionally belongs to the comic book genre), but it didn’t take long for it to find some Marvel competition at the box office. Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past - touted as the biggest X-Men movie yet, arrived in theaters in time for the Memorial Day holiday, and featured dominating, worldwide-spread buzz for quite a while. But then, of course, came Guardians of the Galaxy, which has been named the domestic box office king of summer 2014 and has already made more than April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier here in the United States.

Joining me to break down exactly what went right and what went wrong with these three Marvel Cinematic Multiverse entries is my good friend Silas Lesnick from ComingSoon/Most Craved, who joins me as co-host for Hero Blend #31. Hit the big play button above and watch the show!
