Ep. 58 - Between Point Ears - The M in MCU is for Multiverse Pt. 1
Now we have been putting out a lot of DC content as of late, and rightfully so, DC’s been smashing it! But this week, one would say this weeks episode is going to be MARVELOUS. That’s right friends, it’s all about the MCU today, Phase 4 to be exact. Some of the more recent announcements about new villains, returning villains, characters, and a certain Sorcerer Supreme have got the Meanwhile crew thinking Marvel is about to double down on their multiverse hard! And within that give us a live action Spiderverse. Now, this all sounds pretty awesome! But, you have to ask yourself, is this a good thing? Is this about creating the best story or is this a tit for tat game with DC? And could this potentially hurt the MCU? Well, just like we always we do, we are going to explore this from all angles. So, don't miss this one!
Ep. 57 - Between Pointed Ears - When Fans Attack
Well, over the last couple of months. Fandom has reached a new level of insanity, just this past week. A developer who works on the Marvel Spiderman game, received some pretty egregious threats because he did a little remodeling to the Peter Parker character in the game. Gina Carano, who plays Cara Dune on the Mandalorian was targeted by Twitter users because she wouldn't add her pronouns to her Twitter bio. And season 2 of the boys was rating bombed by angry so called "fans" because the whole season wasn't made available on Prime like it had been in past seasons. When did we go from celebrate, to hate, and how and why did it happen so fast? Well the Meanwhile Crew has some thoughts. So join us as we look back at some of fandom's darkest moments, and try to make sense of this age of fancanity.
Ep. 56- "The Man Without Fear" (1997)Daredevil Film Treatment breakdown - Pt. 2
If you did a Google search for comic book movies that were never made. You would be blown away, by not only the sheer number, but also by the number of fan favourite franchises, and characters that almost made it to the silver screen. One of these never to be films, that really peaked our curiosity was a 1997 Daredevil film that was to be produced by Hollywood legend, Chris Columbus. Now this project never went beyond the brainstorm stage, however there was a treatment written by a well respected comic book scribe, Jean Marc Dematteis, who's name you should recognize from possibly one of the greatest Spiderman stories of all time, Kraven's Last Hunt. Columbus tasked Dematteis with writing the treatment, but sadly the project never made it past those pages. Luckily though, the treatment found its way online, and I have to say, we had great time reading it! It's a page turner! So come join us as we breakdown the 1997 film treatment by JM Dematteis "The Man Without Fear" act, by act.
