Another brand new week of superhero television means another brand new review episode of Superhero Movie Talk. Four new episodes aired last week so listen and see if GOTHAM, THE FLASH, MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., or ARROW took home the coveted Episode of the Week prize!
Arguably, last week was one of the biggest ever for superhero movie news. First came news that Marvel was planning to insert Iron Man into CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 to start CIVIL WAR. Then, Warner Bros. unveiled its full DC movie universe lineup through 2020. Now, we finally get to talk about all of this on Superhero Movie Talk, plus DAREDEVIL and DOCTOR STRANGE!
We’re almost at the peak of comic book live action television for this fall as shows are settling into their season and THE WALKING DEAD joins the fray this week.
