Check out the Archie mirrorverse! See the Wolverine claw frenzy! Batman V Superman:The Legal Drama! The Michael Keatonverse! 3 Hawkeyes and a Jeremy Renner! And so much more (well at least 2 more).

263: Shirtless Nick Nolte as Namor

This week the boys talk about projects mired in development hell. Films. Comics. Our lives in 2020. We talk about projects that made it out of a long battle to finally see the light, ones still fighting to be made and projects that came up, fell into a bog and will be found 1000 years from now perfectly preserved. That and we celebrate Kyle’s birthday by putting in comic book set ups and seeing how he does. Enter…. the Lees Paradox. All that and a ton of news….. and shirtless Nick Nolte as Namor…… you can hear his voice can’t you, Clarice. The garbled screeching of the Noltes……Join us won’t you?
