Jacob Batalon talks about Peter Parker's shock return to the MCU, the future of Ned Leeds, and making Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Screen Rant's Features Editor, Alex struggles to watch a film without thinking of an ace explainer or hot take. The team's London-based member, he has been writing about film online since 2012 and in that time has covered everything from Cannes to the MCU (especially the latter's timeline errors). He likes all manner of movies, from Gaspar Noe's Love (he's even quoted on the DVD) to Toy Story 2, and will readily debate why the original Star Wars is still the best one. If you're ever in a Soho pub and hear someone shouting about how the modern movie landscape is all a result of the comic industry's speculator bubble, come say hi (or if that's too much of a trek just message me on Twitter @ADLeadbeater).
