Episode 304: The 2014 Summer Movie Preview

With the summer movie season in swing, Blake and Erin take the time to go through the next few months of releases and talk about what looks cool, what looks awful, and what movies they’re going to be sure to see.

And what’s cool this week? Erin just wants to sleep, so Blake doubles up with Madame Frankenstein #1 and She-Hulk #4.

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.

You’re also all invited to join Blake’s latest adventures in Twitter-based humor @SurviveEnglishC.
