It’s a Hollywood-focused episode from the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! this week. Not to fear, we do get some comic talk in throughout the show.
Now, we record on Wednesday nights, so at the time of this recording, the Disney acquisition of Fox was still just a speculation. Since then, the deal has gone through and we can soon hope to see an Avengers vs. X-Men sometime during Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Anyway, we offer our somewhat-dated thoughts as to what this might mean for the Marvel film franchise.
Then we turn our attention over to DC, and the reported shake-up in their film brain trust due to the un-Avengers like performance of Justice League.
Next, we do a rundown of some possible gift ideas for the comic-loving geek in your life. Especially if you are that comic-loving geek. It’s OK to pick up something for yourself. Or pick up something for your favorite podcasters.
Finally, we offer up our expectations for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which has already earned a gajillion dollars since it’s release last night. Look for our review of the movie in the upcoming weeks. We may need to see this multiple times to prepare for the review. These tickets are a business expense, right guys?
