Ms. Marvel is the latest installment in the Disney Plus extended MCU. The series follows Kamala Khan as she gains and learns to control her powers over a 6 episode stretch. 

This series was highly anticipated for Comic fans not only because it’s the first live action representation of a South Asian hero but also because Kamala was the first comic character that belonged to the islamic religion to get her own solo comic series.

So nat...

Pride month came to an end at the end of June but we believe it is never a bad time to be prideful.

Discussing Rumors and creating Fancastings has become somewhat of a nerdy pastime for not just comic book fans but members of all other kinds of geeky fandoms as well. 

A couple of episodes back our Nerdtastic Duo and their guests discussed some future heroes we would like to see in the MCU. 

And as we all know a hero is only as good as his rogues gallery, or at least that's what the neighbor in Peacemaker said, so now it’s time ...

A Message from "The Riddler":
I'm so glad you’re here. I wanted to show you something. 
But first a riddle for you to ponder.

When is the top of a mountain like a savings account?

A film as outstanding as mine grabbed attention across the globe and it deserves an equally fascinating analysis from people that understood it. So I searched far and wide before finding this litt...

Sherlock Holmes (born William Sherlock Scott Holmes) is the world's only consulting detective, a profession he created for himself. 

Much like his fabricated profession, Sherlock himself and the many stories and characters in his world are all fictional creations from the mind of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

And you may ask, why are the Bear and Beard doing an episode about some book character from the 1800s. And the response is simpl...

Ever since our Social Media Sorcerer, Nerdsquatch, met our Nerdtastic Duo one thing has been a huge topic among us Fan castings and theories. 

So, since The Riddler himself posed the question to us, Who would we cast in the future MCU?, we thought now would be a good time to do another Fancasting episode and also talk some casting rumors.

With a movie as awesome as Multiverse of Madness on the horizon now is the perfect time for this...

Since his creation in 1962, our favorite Webhead has been swinging through comics, cartoons, and feature films with great style. For a character that was originally considered to be one of Stan Lee’s worst ideas it is funny to think that Spiderman has not only become one of the most recognizable superheroes but that he also has the most solo Marvel hero films to date.

Even more surprising is the fact that the newest film Spider Man ...

From his 1st appearance in Thor back in 2011 to Avengers: Endgame in 2019 Clint Barton aka Hawkeye has become a fan favorite amongst the MCU’s ever growing character list. 
So much so that Disney Plus’s extended MCU TV verse got a new addition last year in the form of a show that gave us a lot more insight into Barton’s life. Hawkeye!

From the Roundhay Garden Scene in 1888 to today's blockbuster hits the film industry has gone through so many changes and evolutions that it's almost unrecognizable from how it used to be.

The industry known as Hollywood is an ever-expanding enterprise that has given us so much entertainment over the years and is on track to continue to do so even with the hell of a year that was 2020.
