Letter From The Editor
October has come and gone and as the leaves turn festive Fall colors here in New England I find myself thinking about the State of the Cosmos, reflecting not only on the state of this site but how life changes, sometimes for the better, sometimes painfully, sometimes a mixture of both. That being said, it has been another good month overall for The Cosmic Circus, with our Twitter follows and view/visitor stats continuing to grow significantly.
We are also very lucky to have some amazing Patreon members who continue to support the site and enable us to grow as well as reward the writers for their work. If you appreciate our work on this site, please consider becoming a member. A Patreon membership with us offers watch parties, a private Discord, occasional insider insights, as well as opportunities to ask me questions I might not normally answer on Twitter.
Among the changes we’ve implemented this past month, was the addition of a new official podcast for the site called “The Cosmic Circle.” This is a roundtable-style podcast where we will have a revolving group of the site’s writers (and perhaps outside guests from time to time). The first episode is available on Spotify and many other services, or you can listen through the link below.
For November, we have multiple podcasts planned including a review of Eternals, as well as Cowboy Bebop and Hawkeye premiere episodes. I hope you will give the podcast a listen sometime and get to know this wonderful group of people a bit better as I have.
October included some pretty awesome finds by our writers here, including articles about Will Poulter being cast as Adam Warlock in Guardian’s of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (HERE and HERE), which was later confirmed by Deadline and James Gunn himself.
We also were the first to pick up on evidence that Bill Murray had a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania HERE. This was soon followed by another great find here as we were the first English-speaking site to pick up on and translate a German Interview with Murray in which he confirmed that he was indeed in the Peyton Reed directed Marvel movie. (HERE)
I continue to be proud of my Cosmic Circus family and the work they do on this site. We look forward to bringing you all more great content this month.
