As we prepare for our winter hiatus, the Super Squad is back with another Giant-Size Superhero Sweep episode. We kick off by discussing the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, then discuss the divergence of DC and Marvel’s approaches to telling stories in their cinematic universes. Then, it’s a brief foray into the upcoming Stargirl show, and the end of the the Marvel Television universe. Finally, a thought-provoking letter about real-life superheroes.
The holidays are upon us—consider buying a t-shirt for a loved one!

“Wonder Woman”, the first female-led superhero movie in ages, has arrived! After praising director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Godot in a pre-spoiler segment, we discuss the necessity of the post-“Batman v. Superman” framing sequence, the choreography of the fight scenes, the innate humanity of Gal Godot’s Diana, how this compares to recent superhero fare, the World War I setting, and maybe even Chris Pine’s watch.
