    Superhero Show Cancellations & Resident Evil on Netflix

    This week Superhero Slate is talking about Ms. Marvel’s power changes, several unsurprising cancellations, the upcoming Resident Evil series on Netflix, and more!

    News



    She-Hulk (16:24)



    Marvel’s site shows release on Disney+ for August 17

    UK site says:



     This new comedy series sees Bruce Banner help his cousin, Jennifer Walters, when she needs an emergency blood transfusion and guess what? She receives his powers too









    Ms. Marvel (20:00)



    Co-Creator Sana Amanat on changes:



    "Obviously, so much of the show is an adaptation, and we thought it was important to make sure that her powers are linking to larger stories in the Marvel universe. The powers do look different, which is very controversial. I know people are like, 'How dare you change the powers!' I know people are upset about it, but as someone who's probably one of the closest people to this character from the inception, and having spoken to Willow about this as well, I think Willow and I have always felt that this made sense," the producer and comic book writer continued. "This was the right move because there are bigger stories to tell."

Thomas Jody ,

Keep it up

Great job!! Love this podcast and look forward to it every Sunday night or Monday morning. I look forward to your entertaining discussions on all things superhero. The art work and show notes are remarkable and unlike any other. Your knowledge is impressive and your banter feels like I’m listening to old friends.

Great in-depth discussion of superhero movies

I love this podcast. It’s one I look forward to every week. The guys really dig into news and online information about superhero stuff, mainly movies. They are easy to listen to, well-read and have interesting ideas. I don’t always agree with them but I always think about what they say. Thanks to both of you.
