Disney+ offers a wide variety of movies and shows from Disney's catalog, including loads from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One notable omission, though, is the popular character Spider-Man. And sure enough, the wallcrawler won't be joining the streaming service, as Disney+ head of content and marketing Ricky Strauss says the company has no plans to pursue it.

"We love our friends at Sony, but we don’t have any plans to have the live-action Spider-Man movies on Disney+” Strauss told The Verge. "We will have all the Spider-Man animated shows that we did so they'll be on there under the Marvel banner. But who knows what can happen in the future?"

The two Spider-Man films, Homecoming and Far From Home, represent a relatively large hole in the MCU. Aside from being one of Marvel's most popular characters, Homecoming builds Spidey's relationship with Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) that becomes a key emotional beat in Infinity War and Endgame. Far From Home served as an epilogue to Endgame, showing how characters in the Marvel universe move on after those massive events.

At the same time, it's unsurprising. Sony owns the film rights to Spider-Man films, and Marvel had to broker a deal to use the character in the first place. Earlier this year that deal appeared in jeopardy for future films, but was saved for a third movie--with a little personal advocacy from actor Tom Holland.

Strauss does note that there is Spider-Man content on the service. Disney+ even has a dedicated Spider-Man section that can be found in its Search page. That includes animated Spider-Man shows from various eras, including the 1990s Spider-Man animated series, the team-up Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, and the Ultimate Spider-Man series in 2011.

New Red Dead 2 PC Update Coming Soon, Rockstar Apologizes For Issues

New Red Dead 2 PC Update Coming Soon, Rockstar Apologizes For Issues

Rockstar has issued a statement on technical issues with its launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. The studio said it is rolling out an update starting today to fix some technical issues, but more severe problems caused by conflicts between certain CPUs and Nvidia cards and drivers will take more time to resolve.

In the statement issued on Twitter, Rockstar says that persistent problems appear to be due to "unforeseen issues related to specific combinations of Nvidia graphics drivers, Nvidia GPU cards and certain CPUs." To that end, it says it is working with Nvidia to resolve the issue in a future update, but it may take a few days to test the update fully and assure it addresses the problem.

"We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience and will update you as soon as we have more information to share—we want everyone to be able to experience Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC as we intended as soon as possible," the statement reads.

Some players found workarounds to these issues quickly, and Rockstar has been issuing patches through the game launcher and game itself. The problems appear to be persisting for some players, though, and that's what Rockstar aims to fix. We found on the whole, Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is a worthwhile port of GameSpot's 2018 Game of the Year.

Marvel Vs. DC Docu-Series Being Produced By Avengers: Endgame Directors

Marvel Vs. DC Docu-Series Being Produced By Avengers: Endgame Directors

Joe and Anthony Russo, the director duo who brought you Avengers: Endgame are producing a streaming docu-series about the rivalry between Marvel and DC for the streaming service Quibi, Entertainment Weekly reports. Titled Slugest, the series will be heavily inspired by the 2017 book Slugfest: Inside The Epic, 50-Year Battle Between Marvel And DC by Reed Tucker.

The series will encompass the companies' rivalries in the film arena and beyond, digging deep into their race to "establish culture-changing mythologies" in the "indomitably American industry" of comic books from the mid-1930s to the modern-day. The series will be directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce.

As for the optics of having two of the most wildly known MCU architects producing a series about the rivalry between Marvel and DC, we can't be sure. As far as anyone knows, the Russo Brothers do not have any upcoming commitments to Marvel Studios in the wake of Avengers: Endgame, but we can only hope that some DC Comics and DCEU masterminds get to throw in their two-cents as well. Needless to say, it's probably best not to count on the series ending any long-fought social media fights about the superiority of one franchise over the other--if anything, Slugfest is probably going to fuel those fires even more.

Quibi is scheduled to launch on April 6, 2020.

How Yoda May Fit Into The Mandalorian

How Yoda May Fit Into The Mandalorian

Hopefully, by now, you've finally gotten to watch the first episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+, which has a mindblowing ending. But how does this ending fit into the grand scheme of things when it comes to the Star Wars universe? We have an idea, and it's all connected to Yoda.

Warning: Spoilers for the first episode of The Mandalorian ahead.

As a whole, Star Wars is all about lineage. The people who birthed you and those who raised you shaped who you are now, and that can be said about real life as well. So the revelation that the Mando (whose name is Din Jarron) finds a 50-year-old alien baby--which is the same species as Yoda--raises a lot of questions. We all assumed Yoda was the last of his species, so where did this baby come from and who are its parents?

The most well-known of this alien species is Yoda, who passed on in Return of the Jedi at the ripe young age of 900. However, another one of this unnamed species was introduced in the Star Wars universe years ago, in Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Back in 1999, Star Wars fans were introduced to the Jedi High Council, and one of its members was Yaddle, a female of Yoda's alien species. The two served on the council together during this time. Yaddle only appeared in Phantom Menace, but her story didn't end there.

After the Battle of Naboo, Yaddle left the Jedi High Council, where she was replaced by Shaak Ti. This was revealed in the book Ultimate Star Wars. Years later, approximately a decade before the Battle of Yavin, Yaddle was killed at The Battle of Fortress Vader by Lord Vader himself, in a comic book series from Marvel Comics.

So The Mandalorian takes place 10 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin), and 20 years after the death of Yaddle. Considering she's the only female of this species we've seen in current canon, and she worked with Yoda on the Jedi High Council, it's not too out-there to speculate that Yoda and Yaddle are the parents of the baby in The Mandalorian.

Since this infant is actually 50 years old, that puts its birth around 40 BBY, eight years prior to the events of The Phantom Menace. Yoda and Yaddle were presumably on the Jedi High Council together during this time. So maybe part of Yaddle's decision to leave it was so she could raise their eight-year-old child. And after Anakin killed all the younglings, she could have gone into hiding, before joining other Jedi to try and take down Darth Vader at his battle on Mustafar.

Where the baby went after that is a mystery. Maybe Yoda took it to Degobah with him and had it hidden away while he was training Luke Skywalker. However, this is all conjecture. We don't know the lineage of the Yoda-like baby at this time. All we know is its age and that there were two others of this species in current Star Wars canon, but considering how many of the characters in the Star Wars movies and TV series are connected, this is a good bet.

In his review of The Mandalorian, GameSpot's Chris E. Hayner said, "The Mandalorian has made a statement about what a live-action Star Wars TV show looks like. Now, with the remaining seven episodes in Season 1, it needs to make a statement about how a Star Wars plot should unfold over a longer form of storytelling."

We'll more than likely learn more about the Yoda baby in upcoming episodes of The Mandalorian. New episodes air every Friday, with Episode 2 landing on November 15.
