This one’s for the ladies. And anyone else who loves comics. With Birds of Prey coming out this week, it seemed like a good time to take a look at women on and off the page of comic books.
[Note: Sorry this rolled out on Monday, my bad – Brian]
Does whatever a spider can…
This week we’re all new with guest host, Blaine Dowler! Get ready for Spider-Man: Far From Home with thirty questions about everyone’s favorite wall-crawling super hero.
There is a new “Episode Rating” feature at the bottom of the page where you can anonymously rate this (and other) episodes on difficulty and quality.
Hey Bub, you ready for the X-Men? Join Charles Xavier and the whole crew for some x-tremely x-citing trivia this episode as a run-up to the new movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
It’s not exactly “news” anymore, but I thought I’d throw it out there. Just in case there was any discussion/conjecture/wild speculation to be had out there.
I know Iron Fist wasn’t a beloved series, but it sounded like Luke Cage was well-liked series. Maybe combining them into Heroes for Hire?
It’s been awhile gang, but there’s a couple of big ones to show off.
- Anna and the Apocalypse
- Captain Marvel
- Halloween (2018)
- Mary Poppins Returns
Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.
Marvel’s latest Netflix series has been out for just over 48 hours. How does it hold up? Note: there is a scene after the credits of the final episode.
San Diego Comic Con, one of the biggest gatherings of geekdom every year, always gets us good previews of coming attractions. Check out our round-up:
Marvel’s latest entry has been getting an unduly bad wrap. I’ve moved away from written reviews as a way to manage my tendinitis, hence all the podcasts, but this is getting so much negative criticism that I disagree with that I had to say my piece. It’s not perfect, and it’s probably the weakest of the Marvel Netflix series, but naming the weakest Marvel Netflix series is like naming the shortest player in the starting lineup of a professional basketball team. This is flawed, but it’s still good.
