354: Keepin’ it Skreal

We got invited to D23! For real! We definitely didn’t get scammed by a fake email and then drive all the way to Hollywood, only to wind up locked outside of the Disney compound! And we’re definitely not sneaking into the party dressed in the uniforms and/or skins of waiters! And all this we do to bring you, yes YOU, all the corporate-owned mega-franchise news you can handle, because that’s what heroes do.

MCU announcements? We got ‘em! Upcoming Marvel games, and some that aren’t even mobile junk? You know it! And even some non-Disney news about Usagi Yojimbo hopping from IDW back to Dark Horse? Sure, we have that too, why wouldn’t we!? Join us on a wild Disney journey from the secret mascot-infested tunnel system all the way to Kevin Feige’s throne room / D23 stage! And discover which co-host is the jerk who spoils a show for another co-host! Intrigue!!

345: I Would Like to Taste the Horsey Sauce

The Thunderbolts are ready to strike the MCU! A director has been hired, and that means it’s time to wildly speculate about who and what the team of villains-turned-heroes will be when they hit the big screen! To the point that we almost pitch a story, including a topical introduction to a certain Fantastic villain? And perhaps even a Merc with a mouth?? But anyway: What version of the comic will it look to adapt? Which MCU villains will make the cut? Will Zemo keep the purple balaclava or will he don the weird silver pointy mask of Citizen V? And just imagine: Werner Herzog as Baron Zemo Sr.!

And what news! The Boys is coming back for a 4th season, and Jensen Ackles opens up about show creator Eric Kripke’s diabolical methods! TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is out literally tomorrow, with some excessive special editions coming in the probably distant future! Joe Quesada is retiring from Marvel after 20+ years in charge! And a a chance glimpse of “Ugly Namor” has us chatting about when superheroes weren’t all Hollywood hot & fit and whether they even should be! Maybe some comic podcast hosts could be superheroes! MAYBE!

331: Low-Cal Batzone Zone

Coming to a theatre near you: crappy tie-in products! This week, we go over some of the best, worst, and most notorious tie-in junk that gets attached to comics and movies: from Baskin Robbins’ Hydra Force Sundae, to Watchmen condoms, to the Howard the Duck call-in line that definitely isn’t a sex thing (and if it is, big whoop, right?); there’s been some real air balls courtesy of our good friends at Synergy Ltd.!

But first! We’ve got Jon Bernthal-adjacent Punisher news (this episode was recorded before the announcement that Netflix was losing its’ Marvel original shows, whoops!), and a fast food-themed CharacterStorm! All that and Grimace!
