**SPOILER WARNING FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME**

Todd and Andrew saw Spider-Man: Far From Home and oh my God now it’s time to geek out over it. Does Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio top Keaton’s Vulture? What is the future of the MCU now that the Avengers are gone? Could J.K. Simmons dethrone Rami Malek as our new God-King? It’s very possible all of these questions have answers. It’s also very possible we just spent 35 minutes talking about the now-very-real ship of Happy & Aunt May.

The boys spend their time sharing their thoughts about what’s next for the MCU, as well as impressions and hot takes after seeing the movie.
