    I'm disappointed I don't see Machinesmith in the line-up--I was hoping Spencer would add him to the roster, and continue his work with him from the ANT-MAN book. Of course, as you pointed out there are members who weren't pictured here...so maybe Smith will turn up yet.

    for all I know, he and Grizzly started their own security company. I think Spencer might avoid something like that because he did have the two characters on the opposite sides in Astonishing Ant-Man.

    that's nice to know. but what's racist about the Masters of Evil? Gypsy Moth is, surprise, romani. and Armadillo is latino (and not the European version). you'll notice Cottonmouth standing in front of him. and Rock Python is sandwiched in there with the rest of the decidedly not racist Serpent Society.

    Peace
    yeah, their presence gave me pause. I just don't think that they are useful for more besides creating a distraction. maybe they came with Princess Python; who was prominently part of the Bagalia-based Masters of Evil. actually, I'm betting that a lot of Zemo's recruitment drive took place at Bagalia. he seems to be depending, mainly, on numbers here. I can't think of any other reason to go underwater (that's a lot of effort) to sign the Squid (a spider-man one-off villain).

    for that matter, whose side would she be on? she used to have a crush on Steve but felt as if he couldn't look past her criminal past. well now they are on "equal" footing.

    how old is Ophelia Sarkissian supposed to be? she's got a really confusing history; from what I've researched. did she use some kind of age-retarding treatment; like Black Widow?

    The Serpent Society... coming to the MCU?

    Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7. 2017)

    While visiting the art department, I saw many of the same storyboards I saw during an August set visit in Atlanta. This time around, however, Marvel showed us a VFX review, in which the post-production team led by Victoria Alonso adds a scurrying rat to a New York City trashcan and more definition to some thrusters. Oh, and the presentation ended at the worst possible time — just as we caught our first glimpse of Donald Glover standing next to Logan Marshall-Green, the latter of whom plays one of Michael Keaton’s henchmen.

    Going forward, Spider-Man will appear in the untitled sequel to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming due in July 2019. As far as Sony’s involvement in Spider-Man goes, Feige said he’s working with that studio’s marketing and distribution teams and that while Marvel is running creative point on the project, “we don’t want to be the kinds of filmmakers who don’t listen to anybody. We want the input from Sony.”

    Oh, and since I didn’t know where to include this little tidbit in this report, I will say that in the art department there was one dry erase board with writing left on it, and it read “New Request – Serpent Society – ASAP.” Make of that what you will…
    The writer of X-Men Gold also said there's plans to use the Serpent Society in an issue of that series.

    They have been under-utilized and they have such potential. I hope this is the start of something for them.

    Some believe it was just an easter egg for the journalists (they sure do love to troll us SS fans):

    “SERPENT SOCIETY?” reads a note scribbled rather conspicuously across a whiteboard at Marvel Studios’ usually top secret offices. “ASAP!”

    That’s Marvel having a bit of fun with a small group of journalists who were invited to take an inside look at what goes into building their rapidly-expanding cinematic universe. A Captain America: The Serpent Society movie was teased nearly three years ago when it appeared on the Marvel Studios calendar during a “Phase Three” presentation. It was quickly revealed, however, that the title was just a placeholder so that the announcement of Captain America: Civil War could close things out with a bang. While we’re probably still not going to see Chris Evans facing off against snake-themed supervillains anytime soon, Marvel Studios did show off some tantalizing glimpses at upcoming films like Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel!

    The Serpent Society pulled double-duty this week.

    X-Men Gold #4 spoilers:
    had Sidewinder, Anaconda, Bushmaster, and Cottonmouth rubbing a bank but suffering a humiliating defeat by the X-Men.
    end of spoilers It's like really, Marvel writers? Why do you feel the need to make fun of your villains so much? Soon the pool of formidable villains will be maybe like two characters.

    Secret Empire #2 spoilers:
    had Viper (the male one), Puff Adder, and Bushmaster attacking a young woman in a forest until a man calling himself Steve Rogers saves her.
    end of spoilers This one was much better in terms of depiction because really... dat art.
