Welcome back folks, we’re here again to talk about this biggest hit of the year (so far at least), Captain America: Civil War! First a little bit of housekeeping, then on to the big review.
Last week saw a lot of television programs getting cancelled (or rather, “not renewed”), and unfortunately Agent Carter was on the chopping block. This was a show that had a definite shelf life, since it takes place as a prequel to to a well fleshed out world. Still, sad to see it go.
A few other shows have some big updates, including the return of Fish Mooney to Gotham and Game of Thrones continuing it’s whirlwind season.
Several big comic series are also seeing their ends coming up, including Visions, American Alien, Darth Vader, and several DC series that are shortly being rebooted in the Rebirth story line.
But here we are, Civil War has come out, and it’s a huge smash. It’s already rocketed well past Batman v Superman’s worldwide box office, and will very shortly break the billion dollar mark. Was it as good as those numbers imply?
Bill and Paul both thoroughly enjoyed it, despite having a few misgivings about some of the technical aspects. They also came down on different ends of the spectrum, with Bill leaning towards team Iron Man and Paul firmly in the team Cap camp. Which do you prefer? Jump on to our Facebook page and let us know.
Overall though the movie gets a resounding thumbs up, and we can’t recommend seeing it enough. It’s not perfect, but is a great step forward for the MCU, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
That about wraps it up for this week, so give us a listen and be sure to let us know what you think! Thanks again, and we’ll see you soon!
