Podthingy is a side project that I’ve been working on with John Mulhall, author of Geddy’s Moon; Blayne Alexander, lead singer of Idiot Stare; and Hayden Lawrence, NerdBFF and Geek Outlaw. Basically, we sit around and drink and talk about awesome nerdy stuff. Here are episodes 27-29 (the end of the first season!).

In this episode, it’s all about the Marvel and DC cinematic universes, as we talk about the movie lineups through 2020, and discuss which movies we’re most and least looking forward to. On the DC side, we explore the rumors surrounding the new Wonder Woman movie, why Shazam isn’t part of DC continuity, the possibility of Jared Leto playing The Joker in Suicide Squad, the pros and cons of individual versus team movies, and the prospect of a Green Lantern reboot. On the Marvel side, we talk about our most anticipated films from Marvel’s recently announced Phase 3, Black Panther playing a large part in movies to come, the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, Robert Downey Jr. returning as Tony Stark in Civil War, and our choices for Captain Marvel, plus we debate the idea that long term announcements spoil the surprise of what’s to come. On the TV front, we discuss The Flash, Gotham, Constantine, Supergirl, Krypton, Peggy Carter, Agents of SHIELD, Daredevil, and more. DRINK OF THE WEEK – Jager Bombs
