It’s Monday morning, time for another episode of the official podcast of MCU Exchange, Marvel News Desk!  This week we are taking a step back to address an issue that we get asked about all the time.  Why is it so hard for Marvel to crossover TV and film characters and stories?  There is a lot to unpack and we try to offer up all the reasons why we don’t see those crossovers so many fans crave.  We also jump into all the latest news in the MCU and Caleb shares a little from HASCON.  We also interact with the listeners, as usual.  So lend us your earballs and check out the latest episode of Marvel News Desk.
