Superheroes and How to Depict Them

While that title might sound a little lofty, here’s what you’re going to get: we’re going to talk about how superhero movies have both succeeded and failed in depicting their heroes.

What this means is that we touch on everything from Logan, to Deadpool, to The Amazing Spiderman, to the upcoming DC movies (especially The Flash) to The Fantastic Four, John Wick, and more.

Heck, we even sneak in a Star Wars reference as we break down what, in our eyes, makes these types of movies succeed or fail.

Do we tangent?

Oh, yes. Yes, we do. Mightily. Sorry about that, but it’s a hazard of the job, really. Can’t be helped.

Nevertheless, we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

Episode 12.5 – Wonder Woman Trailer

It’s no secret that Jason and I have been critical of DC’s attempts to get their movie universe going, but always with the hope that they might get their act together and make the kind of movie that will finally get their collective train back on the right track.

It looks more and more as though they may have – finally – done that.

The new trailer for Wonder Woman is out.

What do we think?

Listen for yourselves.

[Apologies to everyone that Ryan isn’t in on this one. He is currently in New York on the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them press junket, and was exhausted last night after we finished talking about Doctor Strange.]
