Aaron Adams & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about the rumors that are making the rounds about which members of the Sinister Six may show up in the next Tom Holland “Spider-Man” movie. Then Jim shares what he’s learned from “The Ride of a Lifetime,” Bob Iger’s recently published memoir, about what went on behind-the-scenes as The Walt Disney Company was pursuing Marvel back in 2008 & 2009.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How Robert Downey Jr.’s cameo appearance in Marvel’s “Black Widow” movie may actually wind up being a scene that was cut from “Captain America: Civil War”

How an alternate take of Samuel L. Jackson’s very first appearance as Nick Fury (in the original “Iron Man” back in 2008) revealed that Kevin Feige initially had plans for a far more expansive/connected version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

What role did Steve Jobs play in persuading Ike Perlmutter that he should sell Marvel Entertainment to The Walt Disney Company

How – after Disney acquired 21st Century Fox – Bob Iger went about reorganizing the Mouse House

How does Marvel’s mid-town Manhattan’s office reflect Ike Perlmutter’s unique personality
