THE FANBOY: ‘AQUAMAN Trailer, Mandalorian Dreams, VENOMous Concerns, Superman Hopes, and Batfleck Returns?’
On this week’s stacked edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles walks you through the latest updates on everything from the buzz (and *NEW TRAILER*) for Aquaman, the new intel we’ve been given about Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian, some concerns for The Flash, how the critical response to Venom highlights a disturbing trend, the latest on whether we should believe that Ben Affleck is preparing to return as Batman, what a new Superman movie should look like, A Star Is Born shining a light on an oft-ignored commodity: Acting, and more!
Things open today with some thoughts on The Mandalorian, and the way it looks like a return to one of the core elements that made the Original Trilogy so special. MFR discusses everything from the premise, to the directors who’ve been announced, and outlines what it is that’s making this series a can’t-miss for him.
The focus then shifts to Venom, the way folks are responding to it, and the way it’s bringing to light one of the great and growing issues within fandom and the blogosphere. In short, critics and bloggers aren’t the same thing, nor should they be treated as such. In this world, there are such things as experts and authorities, and the fact that we’re moving to the “everyone’s voice is equal” model is actually more troubling than it is promising.
Then he gets into something that’s worrying him about The Flash, before discussing the new Aquaman trailer and the buzz around the film. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer:
Then he gets into one of his favorite topics: Superman.
Having finally had a chance to see Superman vs The Elite, MFR gives his thoughts on the film and how they connect to the Dream Superman Movie he’s had in his head for years. He even lays out for you what the building blocks would be for his ideal Superman reboot.
This week’s episode wraps up with a brief talk about acting- one of the most crucial elements in any movie or TV show that tends to get glossed over when discussing the entertainment we love, taking for granted what a vital part of the magic it is.
