In Episode 105, Doug and Dirty A welcome back author Matt King to discuss Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! The film has taken a drubbing from critics, but what did the guys think about the launch of the DC Extended Universe?
This review was tough to write. A lot of anticipation has built up around Warner Brothers’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and not just the three years’ worth since the movie was announced at San Diego Comic Con. For decades, fans have been waiting to see the two most iconic superheroes on screen together. I saw it on an early screening and enjoyed it. Then, I saw all the negative reviews and thought, “Did we see the same movie?” So, I decided to wait until my second viewing to write my review and I’m glad I did, because while Dawn of Justice isn’t as terrible as some are making it out to be, it definitely has a lot of flaws.
On Episode 12 of The Crossover Podcast, Doug and Matt talk about the big blockbusters headed your way over the next few months including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, (clearly, this was recorded before the final trailer for Cap 3 blew up the Internet). Then they turn their attention to the small screen and discuss the upcoming Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix as well as the casting of Iron Fist. Finally, they discuss the dumpster fire that is the Gambit film as well as rumors that a certain classic Wolverine villain will show up in his next film.
In Episode 72, Doug and Allen discuss the two biggest things in cinema right now: the TEASER TRAILERS for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then, they discuss full, complete films that are actually in theaters right now: While We’re Young, True Story, and Child 44. They also amend last episode’s error of leaving Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation off of their list of Summer Movies. Take a listen!
