Spawn as Shawshank Redemption!

169 : She’s got her $#!% Together and he’s got his $#!% in a Box at his Aunt’s!

Gotta keep the status quo! Such is the mantra of many comics fans. But can it work to switch it up? Has it worked to do a big character/story shift? That’s what we talk about this week. From Nightwing Batman, to Flash Thompson Venom, to Captain Marvel, what’s worked? And which is your Spidey Quo? – lonely, ridiculous shlub, or married and a jerk? We weigh in. That plus so much more…like, birds of prey dvd collections, Bat fly jeans, Galactus Gary Busey, hood farts, someone who might have been chappy, and the almost title of this episode, ‘I’m a mob princess over here, heeeyyyyyy!’ Join us, won’t you? Please. Save us. Call for help.

167: I’m a Reporter

I tried to put that Eminem song about Venom in this one, but it just…it wasn’t in the cards, y’know? Also how silly is it that there’s a song about Venom that Eminem did? Were the guys from 21 Pilots busy? Ha, good one, episode introducer.

Anyway! This week, in celebration of Venom, we’re talking about what the sequel’s going to look like. And did you know that Sony has the rights to around 900 Spidey-related characters? We pitch movies featuring some of those folks, as well!

All that plus news, brews, and Bebop and Rocksteady just being very strong children.

164: Gunning Away

All’s relatively quiet on the Disney/Marvel front, and unless a miracle occurs, it looks like James Gunn’s firing from “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies is final. But a question remians: what’s next for the jilted director? We take a look at Gunn’s eclectic creative history and find a few potential comic movies he could turn into the next hit franchise!

But that’s not all! In the news, we work through the social-media hellstorm that is “comicsgate,” and the positivity that’s risen to fight its hate and harassment. And then… we finally resolve the most important question of all… Spider-Man: Threat or Menace!?
