Interest in Marvel Entertainment’s properties continues to grow and the company is looking to capitalize on that fact by launching an all-new online weekly variety s talk show called THWIP! The Big Marvel Show.

Hosts Orraine Cink and Ryan Penagos, also known as Agent M, will discuss Marvel’s projects ranging from movies, TV, games, comics and more as well as feature interviews with special guests and variety show style segments.

“Lorraine’s been begging and pleading with me for years to join her on a regular program, and I finally relented,” said Penagos, the VP & Executive Editor for Marvel’s Digital Media Group. “Actually, that’s not true. But it’s been amazing watching Lorraine shine week in and week out on all her Marvel projects, so being able to sit next to her and geek out with her is an honor and a privilege. We just want to goof off and make each other laugh with THWIP! The Big Marvel Show, so if we can garner some guffaws and giggles from Marvel fans far and wide—even better!”

Cink and Penagos have previously co-hosted broadcasts for Marvel at comic book conventions, and Penagos has served as a regular co-host for the This Week in Marvel podcast which served as a sort of precurrser for THWIP! The Big Marvel Show. This series will join the short-form digital show The Marvel Minute which Cink also hosts.

New episodes of the series will be released on YouTube and Marvel.com every Wednesday, which also happens to be the day that new comic books are released.

Behind the scenes style shows like this are becoming more popular as Lucasfilm, a company owned by Disney like Marvel, recently launched their own variety show called The Star Wars Show and comic book competitor DC Comics has their own in the form of DC All Access.

Check out the first episode below.
