Episode 310: Six Years of Super Cinema

A few weeks ago, Warner Bros announced their slate of planned DC Comics movies through 2020. Not to be outdone, Marvel hit us with Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a few days later. With Sony and Fox joining the fray with their licenses, there are over three dozen superhero movies in the works that we know of. This week, the Showcasers talk about the movies that have been announced — which ones are we excited for? Which ones have us a bit concerned? And which ones will surprise us if the cameras ever actually roll?

And what’s cool this week? Kenny is into the Constantine TV show, Erin is making her way through Anne Rice‘s Vampire Chronicles, and Blake gives props to Rocket Raccoon #5 and Tooth & Claw #1.

Episode 15: Rob Liefeld

It’s the greatest debate in 2 in 1 Showcase history! Chase is a fan, Blake a detractor — this week our hosts tackle one of the most divisive figures in comic books, Rob Liefeld. Once the smoke clears, they discuss indie hit Amelia Rules! and Marvel’s Thunderbolts Presents Baron Zemo: Born Better, they dish on their plans for convention season and Free Comic Book Day, and for some inexplicable reason they wind up on a Harry Potter tangent. Because that’s what geeks do, that’s why.
