We also talked about the Joss Whedon scandal that hit last week.

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast via: http://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/early-cut-justice-league-deemed-unwatchable-substantial-changes-made/#gallery-8

In a scathing essay published on Sunday for The Wrap, Cole, who recently divorced Whedon after 16 years of marriage, wrote that Whedon is a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” Cole ― a producer and actress herself ― revealed that Whedon had both physical and emotional affairs with other women throughout their marriage, and blamed his actions on the pressures of the patriarchy.

Whedon has been lauded by the public as a feminist ally since he created the TV series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” in 1997. Since then, Whedon has used his platform to talk about feminism and the importance of men getting involved in the movement.

According to Cole, Whedon had his first affair during their first year of marriage while he was on the set of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”

Poor Justice League. No matter how much good Warner Bros. does, the upcoming pic just can’t catch a break. Even after the smashing success of Wonder Woman, and a thrilling Comic-Con trailer for Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon’s team-up film that was very promising, negative buzz continues to surround it. That doesn’t change today, either, with a follow-up report coming in that expands a bit on what we heard last night.

To recap, yesterday we learned that Warner Bros. was apparently unhappy with a few things in Justice League. Namely, the tone – which they felt was too dark – and the portrayal of Cyborg. Now, Batman-On-Film has added onto that, telling us that the situation is much worse than it appears. Here’s what they had to say:

These reshoots – which are still taking place – are not standard pick-ups/additional photography. Why? Apparently, an early cut of the film was deemed “unwatchable.” Thus, substantial changes to the film were ordered.

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast with Kevin Kilner:

Michael Dolce: I would like to welcome our next guest, who’s resume is incredible. It includes Doll House, House of Cards, Quantico, starred in Home Alone 3, American Pie 2, and he was on the Cosby Show. Welcome Kevin Kilner, how are you doing?

Kevin Kilner: I’m good, Michael, how are you?

MD: Fantastic, I have got to tell you, I mentioned to my interns that you were going to be on the show today and one of the interns was like “he was in A Cinderella Story.” She was very blown away that we are having you on the show today.

KK: It’s interesting having being a dad in these movies because they stick around. I’m having all generations, all walks of life come up to me. People from sci-fi or fans of House of Cards or A Cinderella Story, it’s interesting how it turns over. I did like five or six episodes of One Tree Hill and I have mothers and daughters come up to me.

ABOUT OUR GUEST:

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Brief bio and how you like to be referred to on air. Think Twitter Bio)

I’m an improviser, actor, and comedian living in LA. Sometimes people pay me to write stuff. I’m also a science nerd!

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS?
I’m in the middle of pitching a few TV shows, which sounds like a much bigger, cooler deal than it actually is. I’m also recording a podcast called Braids for Howl, which is Earwolf’s premium content label. Braids is a trippy science show, meant to feel like the stoned 3am conversation everybody has freshman year of college about how big the universe is. I think it works? Who knows!

GOT AN OPINION?
I’m kind of over Marvel TV shows, but Legion is a notable exception. Also, the new Mass Effect game is deeply, deeply flawed, but very, very fun. I don’t think either of those are hot button? But they’re what’s on my mind these days.

FOLLOW OUR GUEST:
@ActuallyBerg on twitter. There’s a fake me on Facebook at facebook.com/berg420, but that’s a fake profile using my face and name run by about two dozen devoted comedians.

NEXT WEEK: We welcome fellow TalkRadio.nyc host Kai Cole and prolific author Dara Lyons on the show to dish on the latest Pop Culture goodness!
