With the start of the blockbuster season already upon us, there’s plenty to be excited for. From Guardians to the Furious, the guys dive in on what to expect over late spring and early summer. On this weeks episode we preview the movies coming out between April and June.
Part 1 – Intro
To kick off the show, the Ryan discussed his new favorite obsession “Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” Ryan argues that this might be his favorite game to date.
The guys also discussed the new Thor Ragnarok trailer, and how Marvel is still killing it with by making good films. After watching the trailer, both Will and Ryan are really excited to see this one. The question now is, with Justice League also coming out in November, which movie will be more successful.
The discussions about Justice League led towards an on going discussion on the show of the “success” woes of DC and Warner Brothers, and what exactly it would take for overhaul at DC. Could we ever see a DC Studios similar to Marvel Studios?
The guys also had an “Airing of Grievance” over the fart fest that was Good Morning America’s Star Wars announcement. Will described it as the “Rachel Maddow” Trump tax return for Star Wars fans. With a big build up and such a big let down, both Ryan and Will were very disappointing with the Announcement.
