THE REVENGERS: “Fallout: James Gunn, Superman Stalling Out, Star Wars, and The X-Men”
On this week’s 22nd Edition of The Revengers: The Official Movie & TV Podcast of Revenge of The Fans, Brett and Mario are short a Vanana! Yes, Vanessa Lee Bontea is on vacation, and so Brett Miro and Mario-Francisco Robles must hold down the fort without her, but they make up for the lack of the full-on RTF Trinity by having a very passionate conversation filled with deep-dives on the biggest news and issues affecting geek culture.
They open with a chat about some of the big movies currently in theaters that they’ve seen, Mission: Impossible- Fallout and Ant-Man and The Wasp, before diving right into the week’s top stories.
Those stories include:
- Mission: Impossible- Fallout at the Box Office (as well as analysis on this week’s Top 5)
- James Gunn
- Friday’s megaton announcement about the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX (including an interesting theory about Luke Skywalker’s actual fate)
- Netflix trying to make amends for shows having too much filler
- The latest on Henry Cavill, Superman, and his dealings with Warner Bros. as the studio tries to map out its future- including additional insight into where things stand and what the latest whispers are about
- Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants are arriving as planned
- Talking the Fox/Disney merger, The X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and what this means for the industry
[WARNING: At the 27:18 mark, Brett and Mario enter some controversial territory as they discuss the latest developments in the James Gunn situation. While the language is all appropriate, the very nature of the subject matter may make this segment inappropriate to listen to around children. This section ends at 45:08]
And they wrap up by fielding some really good listener questions, including one about Zack Snyder’s intentions with Robin and the DCU.
