Mighty Cast Episode 19: Batman V Superman V Everyone

2016-04-20 23:08:47

Welcome back everyone, we’re here for another weekly podcast.  This week the big topic is of course the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. It opened to big dollars and low critic scores, so is it worth your time?

Bill and Paul share their reviews of it, with Bill coming in more middle of the road and Paul outright disliking it.  There were a few solid parts, but the story needed a lot of work and the overall treatment just didn’t live up to what we’ve seen in the past.  The overall verdict is check it out if you’re a big fan of the characters, but maybe wait for the discount theaters or Redbox.  If you were on the fence, might not be worth your time.  But, that’s for you to decide fans, take a listen to our view and see if that helps.

Next up is a run down of the latest in TV developments, with SHIELD no longer subtly leading up to the next big Marvel movie and instead now just straight up setting the stage for it with this weeks episode. Plus Flash, Gotham, Arrow, Walking Dead, and more keep on rolling strong.

Finally, DC has dropped some news on their upcoming Rebirth event, which will see the relaunch of all their titles starting over at issue #1.  Their Wondercon panel made it seem like this will be more focused on the creative teams behind the titles instead of making a big shift in the characters or their world, which could be a good thing based on the teams they have lined up and the results we’ve seen from Marvel doing something similar with their Marvel NOW launch.

That’s it for this week folks, give it a listen and as always let us know what you think on the Facebook page.  Thanks for tuning in!
