One-Shot #19: Beginning to Converge

Blake is back! After a short discussion of his absence, and a sincere thank-you to those who helped raise his spirits during his hospital stay, we get into the first week of DC’s Convergence event. What happens when the heroes of DC’s pre-Flashpoint universe encounter those from other worlds? Wally West! A pregnant Lois Lane! Captain Carrot! There’s good stuff here, guys.

And what’s cool this week? Only two episodes in, Blake is totally won over by Marvel’s first Netflix series, Daredevil.

One-Shot #18: A Spider in Disney’s Web

Shocking the world, this week Disney and Sony announced an unprecedented arrangement to bring Spider-Man home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this mini-episode, Blake talks about what it means for the future of Spidey, for the MCU, and how another property that was recently relaunched with a successful film, then followed up by a disappointing sequel, may be just the thing to combine with Spider-Man.

And what’s cool this week? Spider-Verse wraps up in Amazing Spider-Man #14 and 1000 years of history are on display in Justice League 3000 #14

Episode 301: The Marvel Cinematic Universe-Now What?

Now that the guys have absorbed the cataclysmic events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they’re ready to sit back and talk about how this will affect the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How is this going to change Agents of SHIELD? What’s going to be different in the Marvel movies and TV shows from now on? Where do they go from here? The guys get super-spoilery on everything Marvel has done, make predictions about the films and TV shows already in development, talk about those projects still in the rumor stage, and then give their own suggestions for what properties they’d like to see join the MCU! Plus: what other studios are trying to duplicate the MCU’s success?

And what’s cool this week? Kenny has got his hands on the complete series of Reboot on DVD, while Blake’s ears have been immersed in the new album Music Inspired By the Life and Times of Scrooge.

At the Movies Episode 41: Captain America-The Winter Soldier

Blake is determined not to get into spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which actually kind of makes it a miracle that this podcast is more than 20 seconds long. But he gives you brief impressions and his recommendation for the movie.

And what’s cool this week? Nobody is more surprised than us that Blake is into Superior Spider-Man #30. Nobody at all should be surprised that Blake was into Rifftrax’s Total Riff Off on the National Geographic Channel.
