They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

    Captain America: Civil War

    Captain America: Civil War

    Phase 3, Episode 1.
    We're back and so are the Avengers as they're teaming up to take on the ultimate bad guy....each other! It's Captain America: Civil War! Directed by The Russo Brothers and starring pretty much everyone - Captain America (Chris Evans) returns as the titular hero to face off against Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and hero registration.
    We know... Exciting. We're also not alone for this episode as we're joined by former Editor at DC Comics and owner of Infinite Heroes Comic Shop, Paul Santos. Paul helps us break down the movie and its differences from the comic event its based on.
    Another first. Mike read the comic beforehand. Pat made him. Listen as Mike struggles to understand the choices made in the movie, as well as getting sick and tired of hearing about the Sokovia Accords. So much in this episode that it burst past the usual 50-60 mins. Check out 90 mins of YAMP fun!

    Doctor Strange

    Doctor Strange

    Phase 3, Episode 2
    Now, for something a little different in the MCU. It's the mystic arts of Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Directed by Scott Derrickson.
    We meet Dr. Steven "Jerk" Strange as we get a new origin story from his horrific accident to his miraculous recovery with the help of The Ancient One. This is a character that Pat is unfamiliar within comic world, so Mike isn't alone this episode as they both learn a few things about the character's growth from the page to screen.
    They dissect the introduction to the multi-verse and ponder its possible continuation throughout future MCU movies. Mike and Pat also delve into other IPs from the DC Universe for some reason unbeknownst even to them. You came for Doctor Strange, but you're getting some Green Lantern history as well.
    Enjoy!

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Phase 3, Episode 3.
    We're back with everyone's favorite rag-tag group of hired guns, thrown together like another one of Peter Quill's mix tapes. It's The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin "I Am Groot" Diesel.
    James Gunn also returns to direct this sequel that finds the gang doing things, meeting Quill's dad, doing more things and then saving the universe yet again, but this time no one really will know about it except some ravagers.
    Pat schools Mike on the history of the Guardians from the comics and how Adam Warlock fits and doesn't fit within the Infinity Saga. Mike pleads the case that the best Yondu line is not the infamous "Mary Poppins" reference, but rather something far more important.
    Flip on that Spotify playlist in the background and listen to us talk about the MCU in space. Enjoy!

    Spiderman: Homecoming

    Spiderman: Homecoming

    Phase 3, Episode 4
    Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man joins the MCU in his brand new, stand-alone (sorta) movie. It's Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Zendaya and Michael Keaton as Vulture. Directed by John Watts.
    Mike and Pat discuss the main ways they enjoyed this return to form Spider-Man from the comics, even though they start mixing alternate worlds with certain characters. Pat isn't a fan of M.J. actually being Michelle and not Mary-Jane even through Peter doesn't meet Mary-Jane until after High School and his real love is Gwen Stacy! (Okay, calm down, Pat) And Mike pines over more stand-alone films where cramming in connections to the MCU doesn't impair the storytelling.
    But they both love Michael Keaton portrayal of Vulture, a sympathetic villain, who deserves another crack at the web-slinger in future stories.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Phase 3, Episode 5.
    The third and final, wait...third of four Thor movies has arrived. It's Thor: Ragnarok starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett. Directed by Taika Waititi.
    Mike and Pat dive into Thor's journey for the infinity stones, which has failed, and he's now forced to defend Asgard against the sister he never knew he had. Much like the GOTG movies, Thor: Ragnarok adopts the style over substance angle in storytelling and Pat is having none of it.
    They talk about Hela being a supporting villain in her own movie, the Hulk movie we'll never get so it's in this one and how some of the comedy in this movie overshadows any dramatic moments for Thor and his family and the fact that he's about to lose his home world!

    Black Panther

    Black Panther

    Phase 3, Episode 6
    Ryan Coogler brings Black Panther to the big screen, starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke and more!
    Pat and Mike can't stop talking about how much they like this movie from the dialogue and character building, including a villain in Killmonger that you truly understand and sympathize with his anger. They each enjoyed the isolationist theme debated on screen throughout the movie, as well as, the movie's ability to stand on its own without the crutch of the MCU's other heroes.
    Finally, Mike and Pat, ponder the future of the Black Panther franchise after the unfortunate passing of Chadwick Boseman.

So excited!

I’m so excited for this podcast to come out. I love Marvel but I’ve never dove into the comics myself. Can’t wait to get a deeper dive on the history of the movies I love!
