Episode 041 – Why Isn’t it named Star Wars: Rogue One?

Marvel v. DC!! With the release of Batman v Superman a few weeks ago and the impending release of Captain America: Civil War, the fanboys are at a fever pitch, throwing insults across the aisle at one another and their respective franchises. With the critical thrashing that BvS received and the extremely vocal minority of fans and audiences that hated it, everyone was quick to seize upon any news that DC’s plans were crumbling before their very eyes. We took a week off from the superhero fare, but now we’re ready to jump into the fray and dispel the falsehoods and embrace the truths and examine the state of the DCEU and the MCU. Are those Suicide Squad reshoot rumors a knee-jerk reaction? What else is DC changing in the wake of BvS? With advanced word that Civil War is the “best Marvel film yet,” can DC recover from two very divisive films? Justice League started filming three days ago, with Snyder once again at the helm. Is the DCEU safe under his leadership?

Ever the cinephile, Justin had the opportunity to check out Hardcore Henry and went to an advanced screening of Green Room this past week. We’ll get his thoughts and reviews of both films in a brand new segment, Justin’s Cinema Beat! Whenever Justin gets a chance to check out a film at an advanced screening, we’ll feature all of his reviews right here.

Speaking of segments, in the Epic Previews segment tonight we’ll be discussing two of the biggest trailers to land over the past two weeks- the “blitz” trailer for Suicide Squad and the teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars story, which may be the worst film title of any film in recent memory. We’ll also discuss the Doctor Strange trailer, which was scheduled to land during the recording of the podcast.
