In its fifth year, MondoCon is bigger than ever. In the convention’s program, co-founder and creative director Mitch Putnam mentioned this year’s con is “the first time it actually feels like we’ve hit our full potential.” Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Movie, music, and comic book fans love Mondo for all of the rad collector items they make. Hell, I’m one of them. People line up for hours (and even camp out overnight) to get their hands on the latest releases, and this year was no different. I had the pleasure of attending this year’s two-day convention, which by far was their biggest and best event yet.

WandaVision is shaping up to be one of the most interesting titles of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4. During the Disney+ panel at this year’s D23 Expo, we learned that the show will be half MCU epic and half sitcom, and its first poster teases both of those aspects…though you’ll have to look closely to see the superhero part among the 1950s-inspired, Leave It to Beaver-style sitcom aesthetic. Check out the full poster below. Read More »

When you think of Disney Parks, the first things that come to mind are probably staples of The Magic Kingdom: rides like The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the trinity of Mountains (Space, Splash, and Big Thunder). But it’s rare to find someone who initially conjures up imagery of anything from Epcot, the Walt Disney World park that’s spent decades struggling to define itself. But with Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek recently announcing that the next generation of that park would become “more Disney” than the current iteration, that long struggle may be coming to an end.
At today’s Epcot D23 presentation, Chapek took the stage and gave us some more insight into the renovations that are planned for the park. Here’s what we learned. Read More »

Here’s what we know about the new attraction so far. Read More »
It appears that even though Spider-Man may no longer appear in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the movies may be spinning a WEB of their own without him. WEB, aka the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, is a part of Disney’s theme park narrative that’s tied in to Avengers Campus, the new Marvel-themed land coming to Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland Paris. WEB is a fictional company within the parks that was created by Tony Stark, and during today’s D23 presentation, it was revealed that the organization is going to be incorporated into upcoming comics and movies.
Get the details on that below, and check out some new concept art from the Spider-Man attraction, Pym Kitchen, and more.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lets you fly the Millennium Falcon, so it only makes sense that when the upcoming Avengers Campus attraction opens at Disney’s California Adventure, you’ll be able to take out a certain Marvel vehicle for a spin.
At The D23 Expo’s panel about upcoming Disney Parks attractions, a new ride was announced that will let you step onboard a Quinjet, one of the signature vehicles of The Avengers, to fly alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a battle down in Wakanda and more. Basically, it sounds like Marvel’s version of Star Tours with a little bit of the Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run attraction thrown in for good measure, but the ride itself might offer a new kind of experience. Check out some concept art of the Disneyland Avengers Quinjet ride below. Read More »
With Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as the only ride in Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so far, the new Star Wars-themed expansion has been impressive, but still feels a bit incomplete.

At this morning’s D23 presentation, Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek unveiled a new Galaxy’s Edge commercial that contains tons of new Rise of the Resistance footage, and the official video has been released online. Check it out below.
