Its Monday morning, which means one thing: Marvel News Desk time!  This week our typical panel of Rhiannon, Caleb, and Adam discuss everything going on in the MCU.  After the usual news and reviews, we have the main conversation about what needs to come next for Marvel Studios.  Is there another way to expand and diversify the universe, like Black Panther is doing?  We dream about what could be next in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Join us for another podcast on Marvel News Desk!
