Issue 26: Marvel News (SDCC2022) *and* DC Cancels Batgirl?‪!‬ Comic Zombie

"It's an incredibly bad look to cancel a Latina Batgirl movie." - Kevin Smith 

Erik and Chris return to discuss the latest geek news - with ALL of Kevin Feige's Marvel Phase 5 *and* 6 announcements from this year's San Diego Comic Con 2022! Meanwhile, the new head of Warner Bros decided to cancel not only the (nearly completed) "Batgirl" movie, starring Leslie Grace (and Michael Keaton!), but several other DC projects from the CW and HBO Max (including Kevin Smith's work on "Strange Adventures" an animated anthology which honestly sounded cool as hell) all in an apparent attempt to save $3 billion with a tax loophole, but the move has since apparently backfired causing them to lose $20 billion after pissing off the entire internet, because of course it did. So you know, the usual. 

Note: In this episode we accidentally referred to Ezra Miller as 'he' instead of 'they', but mean no disrespect the trans community, just an honest slip up.
