We had a tremendous pot luck shuffle of a show last night. We talked Wonder Woman and her impact on the DC Film Universe, Spider-Man Homecoming and the not so brilliant move to keep the Venom movie OUTSIDE the MCU. And we mentioned briefly the passing of Adam West.

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

Zendaya in Spider-Man: Homecoming: Is Race The Issue Or Something Deeper?

“While Zendaya is of mixed race, it’s not far fetched that she could pull off red hair which is really the core characteristic the Mary Jane Watson character is ascribed to. In fact there are several photos of Zendaya with red hair on the internet and her appearance is pretty close to what Mary Jane would look like despite the mixed ethnicity.

No, it was an article posted on a web site called Grunge prior to the Mary Jane casting announcement that insinuated something far more sinister at foot regarding Marvel’s parent corporation in Disney.”

On The dropoff from Friday to Saturday faced by Suicide Squad and how the reviews of the film played into it:

“The reviews are usually a barometer of a big drop next weekend. I don’t know that it’ll be as bad as Batman v Superman (which tumbled 69% after opening with $166 million in March) but it’s still not quite on par with what Marvel is doing. All their films received really high marks across the board.”

On the latest Secrets of the Sire #Podcast: The moment of truth is here for DC’s much hyped bad-guy superhero flick Suicide Squad. But with the reviews in from critics, it’s sounding more Batman V Superman than Deadpool. We discuss that and more with Human Echoes Podcast’s own Tony Southcotte!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

There’s a lot at stake for the DC movie universe when Suicide Squad debuts in theaters this Friday. And writer/director David Ayer knows it.

He told Entertainment Weekly as much when asked about the pressure he now faces, brought on by the dismal performance at both the box office and from critics of DC’s supposed tent pole superhero flick Batman V Superman.

“Two years ago ¬Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie,” David Ayer said in the interview.

That’s a very interesting statement. Let me read it again. “I was going to make my movie. Does this suggest that it isn’t his anymore?

“Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it’s a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure.”

How long until Digital Comics completely overtakes the market and comic book stores are a thing of the past? We welcome Jim Gibbons, part of Stela Comics, an all-digital comic book company with original creations made for your phone to chat about the long standing print vs digital debate: is paper even worth it anymore?
