357: …and John Cena as NFL SuperPro

This week, everything’s gone topsy-turvy! DCEU actors in the MCU! Mass hysteria! But with so many Marvel characters to be cast, and so many taken already, eventually every franchise actor will get The Call from Kevin Feige. The question is, who do DC’s biggest stars play when it’s time to take a walk on the Marvel side? The only rules are: it has to be a character who hasn’t been cast in the MCU yet, and any DCEU actor who’s already made the jump to Marvel Studios is off the board. Hey, we’re no Sarah Finn, but we have some fun here!

351: What the #@$% is Going On!?

We’re all reeling from the bloodbath of cancelled projects at Warner Bros and HBO Max after David Zaslav’s Discovery FUSION-HA‘ed with Warner Brothers. The cancellation of Batgirl shocked the Internet and the impact of the takeover seems to keep spreading by the day. As we react to Warnergeddon, we also go through some other announced, scheduled, and even pre-existing projects that have met the corporate reaper’s blade. What can we expect for the future of DC, and perhaps WB as a whole? And along the way, let’s decide who should replace Ezra Miller as the Flash… and discover the secret of Alan Moore’s Five-Way Revenge!

But first there is other news, if you can believe it! The four-season – and completed – Infinity Train is erased from existence by Cartoon Network! It’s time for Guardians of the Galaxy: the Ride: the Comic! Chris Claremont shares some very uncensored opinions at C2E2, and oh ho ho you’d better believe the internet reacted.

And last but not least! We review and discuss LYCAN: SOLOMON’S ODDYSSEY, a new historical werewolf horror (but more!) graphic novel by Dennis Robinson, Sal Donaire, Ezequiel Dominguez and Joel Saavedra, published by Hive Head Studios. Spoilers: we dug it! And we’ll tell you why you may dig it too! [And incidentally, we’d love to do more indie reviews, so please reach out to us if you’re interested!]

347: Click This! You’ll Hate It!

It’s new comic day, so therefore it’s new podcast day too!!
And this week we’re talking directors. Film directors. And specifically film directors that do NOT like comic book films (for a variety of reasons). We discuss that a bit but then decide which comic book films those directors should do!…. if we could make them.
But first we start with a smorgasbord of CBR like article titles…. and we MAY go a little overboard.
All that and news, news, news! Controversy! Controversy! Controversy! From Webtoons ads to Ezra Miller comic cover variants to Miles of Thor… we gots it!

339: She Was a W.I.L.F.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is upon us! And we can finally tell you that Kevin Feige himself approached us to watch the movie in advance, under a strict embargo not to spoil the movie until it’s released. SO WE’RE BREAKING THAT EMBARGO! But… they made us watch it separately, and… weird, it seems like we each saw a very different movie?? That seems… odd. But it ALSO means THREE TIMES THE VERIFIED DOCTOR STRANGE SPOILERS, dear listeners! And that is a mystery that sells a new listen to a podcast, as we all know! And as an added bonus, learn about all the variant cameos, and what Kevin Feige’s hat choices mean for the future of the MCU!

BUT FIRST! We go through all the news we recently missed: Frank Miller Presents a new publishing company! CW Arrowverse cancellations! Bone PRE-cancelled at Netflix! Ezra Miller’s Hawaiian crime spree continues! And we discuss the work and legacy of the recently departed Neal Adams, a legend who defined the industry forever.
