Spider-Man’s Favorite Donut Shop Is Located In Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Serving a community for 60 years takes not only consistency, it also takes connection to the surrounding culture. As a staple of Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop embodies those qualities. 

The shop still retains the same aesthetic from decades past, classically retro. With nostalgic charm, along with a reputation for delicious donuts, Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop is considered iconic by those in the know. It’s no surprise it’s attracted some productions over the years. Notable ones include the NBC series “Shades of Blue” and the 2013 Vince Vaughn movie “Delivery Man”.

The latest production to use the location is the newest entry in the blockbuster franchise Spider-Man: No Way Home. The shop was actually discovered by a producer of the film that lived nearby. Wooed by the unmistakable warmth community staples emit, it was decided that Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop had to be featured in the movie. 

SPOILER AHEAD.

Not only did it make it into the movie, but it’s a major piece of the story’s narrative. Mary Jane, Spidey’s romantic interest played by Zendaya, works at Peter Pan Donuts & Pastry Shop part-time, mint-green uniform and all. What makes it even cooler is that Marvel created an exact replica of the entire shop in a production studio in Atlanta. 

Current owners Donna Siafakas and husband Christos have run the joint since 1993, ensuring the donuts stay hot, fresh and only $1.10 each.

Next time you visit Brooklyn, or if you’re already a local, stop by Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop to experience some of the movie magic lighting up this year’s holiday season.

Denny’s Debuts ‘Fantastic Four’ Menu Including This Monstrous THING BURGER

Dennys-Thing-Burger-01

The Fantastic Four remake is a few months away and hype is steadily growing for the comic book blockbuster. As the premiere gets closer, Denny’s has released a series of Fantastic Four-themed menu items in a partnership with 20th Century Fox.

The new items include a Thing Burger (cheese bagel bun, hash browns, eggs, bacon), Human Torch Skillet (sausage, potatoes, peppers) and the Invisible Woman Slam (Grand Slam with fruit-packed pancakes) named after three of the four protagonists of the film. Also on the “Slamtastic 4” menu are the Fantastic Four Fruit Smoothie, the Fantastic Four Cheese Omelette and the Doom Lava Cake.

Looks like Mr. Fantastic isn’t getting anything named after him. That Thing burger (above) is pretty genius, though.

The new menu will be available at participating Denny’s locations June 23. Fantastic Four is set to open in theaters nationwide on August 7.

Disney’s New Animated Short Film ‘Feast’ is Worth the Price of ‘Big Hero 6’ Alone

feast-disney-pixar-short

It’s the story of a dog who loves to eat with an owner who’s equally willing to live and die with the same passion.

If you’re looking for a reason to go see Disney’s new animated feature Big Hero 6 because the current 91% Tomatometer isn’t enough, make that reason the animated short “Feast” they run before the opening credits. As if you needed another reason to see Big Hero 6.

“Feast,” is a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

To see the flick, we have a trailer below, but you’ll need to get yourself to a movie theatre and do yourself a favor. The short alone is worth the admission price of Big Hero 6.
