Captain America: Civil War is upon us! Are you #teamcap? Or #teamironman? Did you know you’re probably on the wrong side no matter what? That’s because Marvel royally screwed up the politics in the original Civil War.

Would Tony Stark, a businessman be FOR government registration? Would Captain America, a 40s patriot be AGAINST it? That would be like Donald Trump supporting Bernie Sanders’ policies or Hillary calling for more tax cuts for businesses.

We dive into all of that, describe how the movie universe got it right and give our predictions for what is sure to be the movie event of the summer with the gang from BadCoyoteFunky this Friday 11am on TalkingAlternative.com

This week’s show will also be our LAST at the current time slot on TalkingAlternative.com.Catch us at our new PRIMETIME slot starting Wednesday May 11th at 8:30 pm. New Bat time, same Bat channel, same Batty Opinions, Guests and general Mayhem (SoS is still banned in China!)

Missed anything? Catch up on previous shows like last week’s discussion on DC Movies v Civil War

With Civil War less than a week away we posed the question: Is it fair to compare The DC movie universe to the Marvel movie universe? Granted, Batman V Superman was a critical and fan disappointment for the most part, but it did accelerate the process.

Is DC as far away from competing with Marvel as some people think? Or will Suicide Squad lead DC out of the rear view and into the forefront.

What a wacky movie world we live in! MIB 23, the rumored Men In Black, 21 Jump Street crossover, as reported by Comic Book Dot Com, is official! WTF??

“Little information has been made available yet, although it’s assumed that Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will return to reprise their roles from 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Whether the Men in Black will be recast or whether they’ll bring back actors from previous films is, at this point, anybody’s guess. At least one report has said that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are definitely not coming back, although whether they’ll be replaced altogether or whether Sony will make a run at Josh Brolin to reprise his role as a younger Jones isn’t known.”

Yeah, it’s one thing to have something like say Civil War crossing their characters but has every studio gone mad??

By now, all us fanboys have experienced the giggle inducing cameo that was Spider-Man in the Civil War trailer (and if you haven’t you really picked the wrong blog to read).

And despite several nit-picky comments concerning his costume (too shiny! too traditional! what’s up with those armbands?) the one emotion Spider-Man’s appearance does evoke is hope. Hope that the Marvel Universe will one day merge completely. That we’ll see Wolverine pop his claws against the Hulk whose busy getting clobbered by the Thing. That Johnny Storm and Peter Parker and Kitty Pryde will all be attending the same high school eventually.

But most of all, it elicits hope that a true Spider-Man adaption will come to fruition. Sure, we’ve had Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 from Sam Raimi, which right now are the best big screen experiences the Wall-Crawler has seen to date (with me counting Spider-Man 2 as my personal fav). But were they perfect? Far from it. Marc Webb’s reboot attempt? Not even close, but again, even those had elements Spidey fans should be proud of.

No, the one true Spider-Man adaption may be coming in the form of newcomer Tom Holland. And it’s all thanks to a monumental deal that merged the Sonyverse with the Marvelverse.

Spider-Man In The Civil War Trailer

So what better way to break down that deal than with Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez of Starlight Runner Entertainment? He’ll chat Spider-Man in the Civil War trailer and talk about the concept of shared universes in TV and film in use today.

With Spider-Man appearing in the new Captain America film, Superman v Batman coming up, Johnny Depp signing on as the Invisible Man, Netflix prepping Luke Cage, Flash crossing over to Supergirl, but Agent Carter failing, the world has gone Transmedia. But BIG MISTAKES are being made! What are the criteria for a successful shared universe? Why are some studios excelling but others falling flat?
