Maxwell Dillion, also known as Electro, finds his way into the new Spider-verse narrative and has no intention of going back to his origin story. In Marc Webb’s version of the supervillain, Electro lost his melanin, which left a lot of room for scrutiny and a common opinion of lack of representation within the Marvel character depiction.

Within the new “spidey” reality revealed on Tuesday, Marvel fans vibrated a wave of excitement as Electro is suited in a new image, showing a sense of understanding of all fans supporting the Marvel Universe. Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17, 2021

Martin Reunion First Look Trailer

Martin reunion

BET+ debuted the first look trailer for its highly-anticipated Martin reunion. Three decades later, the cast is reuniting for a special episode dropping on June 16.

Participating stars include Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold, and Carl Anthony Payne II.

The trailer opens with a dedication to Thomas Mikal Ford, who played Tommy in the series. The actor sadly passed away in 2016 from an operation complication. He was 52.

Hosted by comedian Affion Crockett, the special will focus on the show’s origin and evolution. In addition, it will feature interviews with the surviving cast, original directors, special musical performances, and behind-the-scenes must-sees.

Martin, which premiered in 1992, starred Lawrence – who played various characters, Campbell as Martin’s girlfriend and later his wife, Gina; Arnold as Gina’s best friend, Pam; and Martin’s two best friends, Cole (Payne) and Tommy (played by the late Thomas Ford). The series concluded with season five due to the tensions between the two main cast members. People reported that Campbell sued Lawrence for “repeated and escalating sexual harassment, sexual battery, verbal abuse, and related threats” in 1997. The two later reconciled, with Campbell announcing in 2020 that she was “so glad that we’re in a good place right now.”
