So yeah, we kind of screwed up. This episode was supposed to be a discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy, but given there was so much news to catch up on, we ended up having to table that discussion for the next episode. Instead, we discussed Marvel’s Phase Three movies, DC’s movie slate, also touched on the beginning of this season’s comic book shows. Listen in to hear Perry’s rant against Gotham and Johnny’s rant against the DC Cinematic Universe! Plus, Johnny finally sees the Age of Ultron trailer!
It’s been a looooong time since our last episode, and we come back to catch up on news that you probably heard months ago. The boys also look at some of the trailers for big comic book movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain: America: The Winter Soldier (the latter two of which are already in theaters), debate the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and the main discussion is focused on the Marvel One-Shot All Hail The King, which the guys feel is a step forward in apologizing for Iron Man 3.
We start the New Year off wrong by watching Man of Steel, or as we prefer to call it, Man of Genocide. Both of us had a lot of problems with the new, darker Superman who is incapable of making decisions for himself, completely oblivious to his surroundings, and undertakes actions that feel like they’d be more at home on the rap sheet of a supervillain.
