Episode Date
#199 The Falcon and The Winter Soldier - Episode 5 spoiler review
2:06:47

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier continues to get better and better with an episode that lives up to its title, "Truth." John Walker has stained the shield with blood. It's time for Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes to take it back. Of course, not all marks on the shield can be wiped away as Sam continues to contemplate his own potential future as the new Cap and what that would mean.

#198 The Falcon and The Winter Soldier - Episode 4 spoiler review
2:14:32

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier delivered its fourth and finest episode (so far). Does the end justify the means? That question is asked and debated several times in this installment, showing us who these characters are and what they really stand for. Sam Wilson once again proves what makes him a hero the world needs while John Walker fails to uphold the legacy of Captain America in shocking ways. We discuss the ethical questions raised by this episode, Zemo singing, the brilliance of Erin Kellyman as Karli Morgenthau, a powerful moment for Bucky, the Dora Milaje, and where the series will go from here!

#197 The Falcon and The Winter Soldier - Episode 3 spoiler review
1:51:00

His name is Zemo and he finally gets his proper title and mask in the latest episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier! The man who tore The Avengers apart is now the only lead Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes have as they try to uncover the truth behind the latest Super Soldier Serum. That's not all, however, as there are two more MCU returns in this episode, one more surprising than the other. Also, who is the Power Broker? We break it all down scene-by-scene, as we always do!

2:00:10

There's a new Captain America! He just isn't the one we wanted. We meet John Walker in the second episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. We also see Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes team up for the first time in this series. They're off to Munich in pursuit of the Flag Smashers, who may not be quite what they seem. What Sam and Bucky learn leads to the revelation of a huge secret that stretches across the history of the MCU and is sure to have a major impact on this series. All of that, an archvillain name-drop, and more are broken down in this spoiler review!

We cover every moment, including the potential arrival of a new superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

#193 Marvel Studios' Assembled review, fan theories & final thoughts
1:11:30

Now that we know the whole story, it's time to see how the creators brought WandaVision to life. We review Marvel Studios' Assembled: The Making of WandaVision before looking back on the series and sharing some final thoughts (for now). This includes a look at some of the bigger fan theories that didn't pan out, like Evan Peters not being Pietro from Fox's X-Men universe, and the reaction to what the story was versus what some thought it could be. Wanda Maximoff examined her grief and her relationship with escapism. Now, we examine our own relationship with our preferred source of escapism, the MCU, and discuss not falling in love with speculation at the expense of the story being told.

#192 WandaVision - Episode 9 spoiler review
2:31:36

This is it: the series finale of WandaVision! All remaining questions are answered, and a few new ones are created, naturally. Wanda Maximoff battles Agatha Harkness. Monica Rambeau takes on Fietro. Vision confronts Vision. The fate of Wanda, her family, Westview, and much more are all at stake in this epic, emotional conclusion to one of the greatest stories the MCU has ever told. We break it all down, and finally meet The Scarlet Witch in this podcast!

#191 WandaVision - Episode 8 spoiler review
2:24:52

It's been Agatha all along! Our latest WandaVision spoiler takes us through the traumatic and tragic journey of Wanda Maximoff. Agatha Harkness is after the secrets of The Hex that she hopes will be revealed by Wanda's truth. In the process we get expected and unexpected answers to some of the biggest questions of this series. As always, new questions come up as the stage is set for what should be an epic finale. Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though, and instead take the time to appreciate this episode as a true Marvel Masterpiece.

#190 WandaVision - Episode 7 spoiler review
2:25:11

WandaVision is breaking the fourth wall (again, technically) as things break down inside of Westview. Wanda and Vision are apart, emotionally and physically, with unexpected obstacles standing in the way of reconciliation. Dr. Darcy Lewis and SWORD operatives are getting acclimated to the circus of their new reality. Agnes is on babysitter duty for Billy and Tommy. Monica Rambeau continues to impress with empathy and heroism that have made her rookie run one of the best in MCU history! We cover it all along the way to some fresh speculation over how it may all end in this spoiler review!

#189 WandaVision - Episode 6 spoiler review
2:10:24

What's the deal with Pietro? Wanda Maximoff's dearly departed brother is back, sort of, but she has doubts and so do we! Meanwhile, Vision is ready to turn his skepticism and worry into a full-blown investigation. Outside of Westview, Monica Rambeau, Jimmy Woo, and Darcy Lewis are battling against Acting Director Hayward over the best way for SWORD to approach Wanda and The Hex. Billy and Tommy, naturally, are caught in the middle! Let's keep the spoiler reviews going!

#188 WandaVision - Episode 5 spoiler review
2:35:24

That escalated quickly! On a very special episode of WandaVision, worlds are colliding and, naturally, breaking down! SWORD believes it has a better grasp of what's going on inside the Westview Anomaly, but we know all is not what it seems. We can't even trust what's happening on the "real world" side of the MCU. All we can do is dive deep into the heavy emotional impact of this episode and marvel at a few more shocking revelations!

#187 WandaVision - Episode 4 spoiler review
2:10:04

"We Interrupt This Program" to bring you a spoiler review of a WandaVision episode (mostly) set outside of Westview! Marvel Studios shocked us with that cold open, but that wouldn't be the last time this week. Enter Monica Rambeau and the Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division, better known as SWORD! We also meet Jimmy Woo and Darcy Lewis for the first time, officially, in this series. The investigation is underway and it's nice to know we're not the only ones asking so many questions. We can see on the other side of the curtain now and Episode 4 offers some answers, but are they telling the whole story? We don't think so.

#186 WandaVision - Episode 3 spoiler review
1:36:25

We got something cooking and it's looking good! WandaVision just gets better and better with the series' third episode, "Now In Color!" Wanda Maximoff is pregnant, Vision can't help but feel something is wrong, and Geraldine (Monica Rambeau) is investigating! It all leads to one of the best scenes in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We break it all down and reexamine our theories through the new lens provided by this astonishing episode of Marvel Studios' first Disney+ series!

#183 Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park
1:55:02

We are honored to be joined by Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park for this very special episode. Marvel's Visual Development Team has been a driving creative force behind the MCU. Andy talks to us about what it's like to be at the wheel, leading the team on projects like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel, WandaVision, and Black Widow (just to name a few).

In addition to leading his team, Andy is also one of the greatest concept artists of all time (our words, not his). Hear him share his insight on designing some of the MCU's most iconic characters including Ant-Man, The Wasp, Captain Marvel, Hela, and Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch. Andy also shares what he can about Natasha Romanoff's new suits in her upcoming film, plus Taskmaster!

#182 Disney Investor Day 2020: Thor vs. Gorr, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Quantumania, Fantastic Four
1:27:09

It's our seventh and final episode covering Disney Investor Day 2020! We cover all of the post-2021 feature film announcements from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. We discuss Marvel and director Ryan Coogler's decision not to recast the role of T'Challa in Black Panther 2 after Chadwick Boseman's passing. We also look at some of the options for how this franchise can move forward while honoring Boseman's legacy.

We also examine key questions coming out of the investor presentation. What are we still not hearing about in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? Who is Gorr the God Butcher, the villain Christian Bale will bring to life in Thor: Love and Thunder? What does Captain Marvel 2 have in common with another Captain's sequel? What new opportunity does Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania have that no other Ant-film has been afforded? What will Jon Watts bring to Fantastic Four? All of this, plus Blade, covered in this episode!

#170 What brought Maya to the MCU?
1:01:34

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken us on a collective journey from one film to the next, all the way through the Infinity Saga (and it will continue beyond that). As fans, it brings us great joy to share these experiences, and yet we each have our own unique stories of how we found this franchise in the first place, and how it has moved us during the time we've spent with it.

Every fan has their story to tell and we're going to start hearing them on the podcast. We begin with Maya, who's been following the franchise since Iron Man, but felt her enthusiasm for the MCU elevated by a different Marvel Studios movie.

#165 Self-reflection, learning, accountability, and growth
19:00
The Black Lives Matter movement is vital if our society is ever going to offer true equality for all. Overcoming systemic racism means examining our own complicity, regardless of our intent. In this episode, Sean Gerber looks at how fandom has contributed to systemic oppression by trying to artificially separate social commentary from entertainment in order to silence the conversations we should be having. The MCU and its fans have not been immune to this. We can and must do better if we are to say the stories and heroes of the MCU offer more than a disposable distraction from the real world. It's time for us to be true to the thematic core of the MCU. It's time to reflect, learn, hold ourselves accountable, and grow.

#162 Marvel Studios can (and should) have a panel without San Diego Comic-Con
57:13

San Diego Comic-Con has officially been canceled. It is the right thing to do and we understand all of the reasons why, but it’s still disappointing. Even so, Marvel Studios has options outside of SDCC and Hall H is the company wants to engage MCU fandom.

#160 What should Disney do with Black Widow?
1:31:22

Disney and Marvel Studios, as of this moment, are still planning to release Black Widow in theaters. That's the plan right now, but plans always have the potential to change. This week, we explore the different factors Disney may look at and how VOD and Disney+ could, at some point, become a more attractive option, even for a film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We also look at how Marvel Studios could use Disney+ to have its own virtual Hall H panels without San Diego Comic-Con.

#158 Black Widow delayed and all Marvel Studios productions on hold due to coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
46:21
Disney and Marvel Studios have pulled Black Widow from its May 1 release date and suspended all active productions due to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). These include Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki right now, but even more upcoming productions could be impacted. Obviously, none of these impacts are of primary concern with respect to COVID-19, but they are signs of how our way of life has changed for the time being and it's okay for fans to feel disappointed. This news, of course, is relevant to this podcast, so host Sean Gerber delivers his full analysis of these stories and more in this episode.

The upcoming Disney+ series will showcase Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) as the Scarlet Witch while also giving us another look at Vision (Paul Bettany) after he died in Avengers: Infinity War. Is he alive again, or only in Wanda's mind? What exactly is a half-sitcom, half-MCU epic? Is Wanda the source of these sitcom-influenced realities? If so, is she generating them willingly? We ponder these questions and more in this episode!

#147 MCU 2019 Year-in-Review
2:14:24
Marvel Studios enjoyed its biggest year ever in 2019, and so did the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Black Panther made history as the first superhero-based movie to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home each topped $1 billion worldwide. Endgame actually did it twice on the way to becoming the highest-grossing film in global box office history!After The Infinity Saga came to a close, we learned all about Phase Four via Marvel Studios' Comic-Con and D23 Expo announcements. We spent a month worrying that Spider-Man was leaving the MCU before Disney and Sony finally got a deal done. Then, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige picked up the additional title of Marvel Chief Creative Officer, making him responsible for all Marvel creative on the big screen, small screen, and on the comic book page.We discuss all of these stories and more in this 2019 year-in-review!

Marvel Television is no more. We already knew the division was being absorbed into Marvel Studios, but now we know much more about how the consolidation is taking shape.

It's time to recap what we already knew, what's happening now, and what it all means in the near and distant future for Marvel content on the small screen!

T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) quickly gained the favor of audiences around the world, only for it all to go to dust in Avengers: Infinity War. Now, Okoye (Danai Gurira) may have to decide between continuing to fight alongside The Avengers, or help lead a nation that has lost its King and Princess. We don't expect Avengers: Endgame to be the last we see of any of these characters, but they could be dealing with the fallout of these Avengers films in Black Panther 2 and beyond!

#105 The Biggest and Best Marvel Studios Stories of 2018
48:00
In the final hours of 2018, let's look back on the best year ever for Marvel Studios. Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War dominated the box office and the pop culture landscape. The Disney-Fox deal was threatened but prevailed and the Marvel/Netflix partnership deteriorated, all while Marvel Studios released its 20th movie (Ant-Man and the Wasp), celebrated its 10-year anniversary, and earned $4B at the global box office. Sadly, 2018 was also the year we said "So long and Excelsior" to the legendary Stan Lee. Get exclusive podcasts access to community events on Patreon!

Over the past few years, we have seen harmful division within DC and Star Wars fandom.
