At Comic-con a mere hour or so ago it was announced Harry would appear in Spider-Man: Freshman Year! Which as it turns out is NOT a prequel to the MCU after all, apparently!
There isn’t a confirmed pic of the boy yet but there is this picture, very possibly he’s the guy in the green? (Of course it’d be green.)
It’s been several months now since the conclusion of Nick Spencer’s run on Amazing Spider-Man and the end of the Kindred Saga, as it’s called now. Am I still salty? Oh god I’m still salty. Here’s 12 questions I still have about the whole sorry show. Perhaps some of them will be answered one day? […]Twelve Questions I Still Have About the Kindred Saga — harryosborn.net
I wrote this today! Guess the saltiness will last a good while yet.

Perhaps you’ve been following my complete mental clusterfuck rage over this story. Nick Spencer’s last issue dropped yesterday, I read it today. And after all that… This godawful story ends on a horrible damp squib. It was depressing, it was pointless, it made no sense. Nothing made sense. It contradicted long-past stories and recent stories and itself.
My only solace is that Harry was never actually a demon after all, just suffering in hell. I know how he feels.
Today the teaser trailer dropped for Spider-Man Lotus, a fan film project! It looks really good.
I’m absolutely OVERJOYED to finally have a live-action Harry who looks like his comic book counterpart! Love the shot of him standing in Times Square, which is one of my favourite places in the world. Love that MJ’s smoking, her counterpart in the mainstream films never got to do that. Love the suit! Love EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS in fact.
You can follow the creators on YouTube and Twitter if you wanna support them! I actually contributed a bit of money at the beginning and I think I made a good choice…
EDIT: I did not.
