EL FANBOY: ‘How Making The Most of A Little Will Help DC, Stalking Batfleck, and STAR WARS In Great Hands!’
On this week’s episode of the El Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles offers some initial perspective on some of the reporting he’s done on the site this week. Namely things about the power structure at DC Entertainment, and how a new philosophy at the studio could be the best thing that ever happened to the DCU.
He also touches on the latest Affleck rumors, reveals how he got this close to trying to pry an answer out of Affleck once and for all about his future as Batman.
From there, he touches on the latest news items coming out of that galaxy far, far away…namely the first batch of box office numbers for Solo: A Star Wars Story, how he’s totally caved into his fanboy impulsiveness for the film he once declared was a hard NOLO, and what it means to have names like Favreau, Benioff, Weiss, and now James Mangold guiding the future of this beloved franchise.
In a somewhat unexpected tangent, MFR also delves into how what happened to WCW in the late 90s in the world of professional wrestling actually illustrates all of the good that can come out of having a boss who imposes strict limits on what you can do.
Indeed, the central theme of this El Fanboy is the idea of Making the most out of a little because it’s important to never take for granted what’s really important by taking full advantage of- and appreciating- what you do have.
