It’s an impromptu draft this week, as we pick our favorite moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and discuss exactly what makes them resonate for us. And we wish a happy birthday to a very special someone.
This week, we remember Chadwick Boseman, who passed away all too young. We reflect on his role as T’Challa/Black Panther in the MCU and discuss the power and legacy of his performance.
Order some schwarma, because we’ve assembled a powerful panel to discuss Earth’s mightiest heroes. Our Summer of Marvel continues with a re-examination of three films we originally reviewed when they were released: “The Avengers”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, and “Captain America: Civil War”, which is really an Avengers movie when you think about it. How do they hold up? What works and, in hindsight, what doesn’t? Which characters benefit from Joss Whedon’s screenwriting tics, and which do not?
It was all just a big misunderstanding.
Flash! Direct from theaters to this podcast, we convene a panel of recent viewers of the latest Marvel superhero epic, “Captain America: Civil War.” Do the rationales of the two sides hold together in the face of reality? Is Tony a bad dude for recruiting a kid to use against his opponents? How do the new faces, including Spider-Man and Black Panther, fare? And how well does this movie fit into the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe series as a whole?
