    On Wednesday, the fanboy world was rocked by the news that Zack Snyder's JUSTICE LEAGUE is coming next year, exclusively to HBO MAX.

    THE FANBOY #108: "The DCEU And The ARROWVERSE Become One, Sony Punks Marvel, More!"

    THE FANBOY #108: "The DCEU And The ARROWVERSE Become One, Sony Punks Marvel, More!"

    On this week’s edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles starts off by discussing that Ezra Miller cameo as The Flash in the Arrowverse’s epic Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event- and what that all means.
    He’ll bring in quotes from top-level people from the Arrowverse, from HBO Max, and talk about how DC Entertainment’s film division got involved. It all ties back to what was discussed last week when Andy Muschietti said his The Flash movie would adapt the Flashpoint storyline, and how both the big and small screens are now working together to bring the DC multiverse to life in a way that’s never been seen before.
    Along the way, he touches on what it was like to see Brandon Routh’s Superman fly one last time, and how important that was for his personal fandom of the character.
    Then MFR turns his attention to the new trailers for Jared Leto's Morbius and Vin Diesel's Bloodshot.
    On Morbius, he re-explores the unique dynamic between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios and what an insane compromise the former is forcing the latter to accept- now that they’ve made crystal clear that Morbius is set in the same world as Spider-Man: Homecoming.
    Somewhere in this section he also manages to address Scott Derrickson's departure from Doctor Strange Into The Multiverse of Madness.
    This episode of The Fanboy wraps up on a brief discussion regarding Barbara Broccoli’s latest comments regarding the idea of gender-swapping James Bond.

    THE FANBOY #107: "New BIRDS OF PREY Trailer, FLASHPOINT(?!), And All Things THE BATMAN"

    THE FANBOY #107: "New BIRDS OF PREY Trailer, FLASHPOINT(?!), And All Things THE BATMAN"

    This week's episode is all DC Comics, all the time. The Fanboy host Mario-Francisco Robles breaks down his thoughts on the latest trailer for Cathy Yan's BIRDS OF PREY before launching into a bunch more DC goodness. Next on deck? Andy Muschietti's apparent confirmation that his The Flash movie with Ezra Miller will adapt the ballyhooed Flashpoint storyline, and what that could mean for the entire cinematic DC landscape. Down the rabbit hole he goes with a way for DC to reconcile the lack of a Batman in the world occupied by The Flash. From there he talks all things Dark Knight, with Matt Reeve's The Batman (finally) beginning principal photography. MFR recaps some of the crazy rumor mill that's surrounded this production since it first was uttered into existence in 2014. He shares thoughts and insights gleaned from the set photos that have hit the net in recent days, and dishes on rumors that the film will draw inspiration from things like Batman: The Animated Series, The Long Halloween, and Lee Bermejo's Batsuit design.
    He concludes with some analysis on what Walter Hamada and DC Entertainment's approach to the universe seems to (continue) to be, and how it's really starting to pay off- creating a landscape that may lead to some very special movies in the future.

    THE FANBOY #106: "STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Is About The Rise of YOU"

    THE FANBOY #106: "STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Is About The Rise of YOU"

    For the first episode of 2020, MFR focuses the bulk of his attention of Episode IX of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He talks about the film's themes, and how some stuff that seems cheap and lazy is actually rather profound and a wonderful evolution of what Rian Johnson emphasized in The Last Jedi.
    Along the way, he also touches on Bumblebee (and how the people behind that film are going to be creating some great work in the years to come), James Cameron's Avatar, and the idea of universal truths being explored in countless forms is actually a great thing.

    THE FANBOY #105: "WONDER WOMAN 1984, The Return of SUPERMAN, THE FLASH, and DC's Intriguing Future"

    On this week's show, Mario starts things off with thoughts on our first looks at GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE and WONDER WOMAN 1984, before going long form on some other major topics- namely Superman, and Brandon Routh's return to the role in this week's Arrowverse crossover event "Crisis on Infinite Earths."

Insightful and entertaining.

Mario is consistently on the money about news, scoops and analysis.

I like his attitude of positivity and inclusiveness about geekdom and life in general.

His choice to share from his personal life and experiences makes me feel like I know him well. Like a friend in another city I haven’t met in a while.

I wish him well and hope he achieves his goals in life and for this podcast in the months to come.
