Even though he didn’t appear in the proper review, Steve joins Zane and I to dig deep into the bloated fanfare which is the DC Extended Universe’s first proper cinematic release. We’re gonna spoil this thing, from a DC fanboy perspective, you’ve been warned.
I caught a midnight screening and a guest host to get this episode out to you Friday morning because I was so excited. You’d probably hear it in my voice if this was a Batman, Superman, or Trinity film, but instead we got DC’s gritty, intellectual Iron Man 2.
The week in which Nahneen Kula put out her first album, Steven is way too excited about Daredevil, The Wachowski Siblings are both transwomen now, The Russo Brothers are making a Chinese studio, Kevin Spacey leaves Relativity, Paramount drops The Little Prince, Amazon is adopting Hollywood norms, and the industry might be moving into the living room, while Ang Lee is set to debut his technical marvel (4K/3D/120FPS/HDR). Plus, Rio 2016 is going 8K, TV in VR, Amazon is becoming the new HSN, Harry Styles starring in the next Christopher Nolan flick, filmmaker relationships with the streaming giants, reactions to the new Spidey and Gordon, Where’s Waldo, Nick Cage, and Damien Chazelle’s musical getting an awards release.
