PODCAST | Westworld and Luke Cage Season 2 Reviews and the Top 10 Marvel Netflix Moments All Time!

PLUS: We answer your burning Westworld finale questions including “What the heck just happened?” and “What the heck am I watching?”

Segment #1:

Hassan starts off the show by giving his take on people stretching a plot line. With many superhero movies today the plotline is so vague, and you cant tell stories that way.  The guys then go on to discuss season 2 of Westworld and there problem with the plotline. Hassan doesn’t realize why it took them two years to finish that plotline. Michael believes that the season is a tale of 2 actions, some of the best riveting single episodes and then this overarching story that is nowhere near as compelling as season 1. Hassan explains how Westworld half settled the riddles from the season before and this seasons riddle was “what the hell is going on?” Hassan’s issue with the series is that its not real storytelling. Both Hassan and Michael feel that the show was way too confusing and at some points during the show the audience doesn’t really care what’s going on. Hassan goes on to say that the problem with shows like this and movies like avatar is that the writers try to make a simple plot out to be so complicated.

Segment 2:

Hassan compares the series to the girl with a dragon tattoo. He has never read anything so compelling, with such a bad surprise. Michael believes that one problem with the show is that the writers never set up the story line. Hassan mentions that the first season had a major flaw, which was William bought the park before it got put online. Michael switches the conversation to the post credit scene.

 

Segment #3:

The third segment starts off with the post credit scene of Westworld. Hassan believes that the man in black was killed by Maeve when their paths crossed. Michael explains that the man in black did kill his daughter and he made the wrong choice and the man in black is a now a host version of himself and lives the same loop of events over and over again. Michael mentions that Teddy was one of the most interesting character arcs, because in the end he made his own choice. Next, the guys discuss the premiere of Luke Cage, season 2. They begin by looking at the first episode and mention how Luke is a lot different than he was in season 2, he is now embracing his heroism. Hassan brings up the point that he never understands the hero who is in love with the girl who convinces him not to be a hero. Michael feels that the plot is changing a little too much for his liking and he’s not sure what exactly is going to happen. Hassan mentions that with Luke Cage you can have both the comic book and TV feel to it because his powers are grounded. Hassan and Michael go on to give their top 10 best Marvel Netflix moments.

Segment 4:

The last segment starts off with Michael and Hassan sharing their top 10 best Marvel Netflix moments. Michael’s favorites include The Punisher, Jessica Jones season 1 when she shoots her parents, and the hallway fight scene in Daredevil. Hassan loved the scene in the Defendenders when the power man and Iron Fist meet each other. Michael wishes that there would be on marvel show with all of these characters included. Hassan implores that the problem with some of these comic book shows is that the writers are trying to one up one another instead of focusing on the writing. In his words, “If they tell the story then people will watch them.”

In 2 WEEKs: We review Ant-Man & Wasp with a stuntwoman FROM the movie Leesha Davis!

PLUS: We welcome Dynamite Entertainment’s Joseph Rybant on to help us preview SDCC 2018.

Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez shared so many insider nuggets as our guest this past week. He even dropped the rumored FIRST Marvel/FOX film post merger. You won’t believe who’s in it and who will be playing the role of a certain Canadian-clawed mutant.

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover In The Works?

Will Hugh Jackman Reprise the role of Wolverine in a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man?

“The muscles were flexing to take these third and fourth tier characters and lift them,” Gomez revealed when asked how the Disney/Fox merger would impact the MCU going forward. “It’s going to be a little easier with X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool.”

But then Gomez dropped the “inside baseball” bombshell of exactly what the bigwigs at Disney were planning to unveil

“The big win is a Hugh Jackman Wolverine with Spider-Man. Why? Spider-Man is the number one superhero merchandise generator ever. So combining those two characters…and Hugh is willing to do it.”

There’s been some debate on Secrets of the Sire as to whether Hugh Jackman needs to hang up the claws. Co-hosts Michael Dolce and Hassan Godwin have debated back and forth whether this merger, combined with he storyline in Logan, is the perfect opportunity to cast someone new in Jackman’s iconic role. But Gomez revealed the thought of Jackman reprising the role is just too good an opportunity to pass up at this point.

“[Wolverine] will have to evolve into another actor at some point, but there are a number of opportunities in the [Marvel] cinematic universe [waiting] to happen.”

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover

Hugh Jackman’s turn as Wolverine may not be over

About This Clip: Disney/Fox Merger
Jeff Gomez gives insight into a potential Disney/Fox merger saying it’ll be “huge for fanboys” and how that might dictate Marvel’s plans for the MCU in the coming years. With a bunch of movies getting new release dates including Deadpool and The New Mutants, what does this say about the direction Fox is heading?

“In the twilight of Fox they are doing interesting things with the franchises.”

SuperHeroStuff - Shop Now! MCU

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast: Kevin Veldman from Comic Noobs:

Michael Dolce: Whats your take on the DC Film U? To me DC is this train wreck that we have to watch, but all of the sudden it went from “we can’t make good movies” to “I’m more excited to see the future DC films than I am the MCU.”

Kevin Veldman: I was a fan of Man of Steel, it wasn’t perfect and had a lot of pacing issues. I did not like Batman vs Superman, it had a ton of issues, but I did feel a lot of those issues were do to studio interference. I’ve been pretty confident in the movies going forward. I don’t know what happened with Suicide Squad, I was super hyped for that one.

MD: Yeah, it just wasn’t very good.

K: I had fun watching it, but I did not like it. Wonder Woman, I have to be honest, I haven’t seen it. I have a toddler at home, so it is very hard to go to the movies.

MD: That is no excuse. I have a 16 month at home. So you haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet?

K: You can blame it on my son.

MD- That is perfectly fair.

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Marty Grabstein

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

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

I host a Comedy podcast where we recap the most important, most fun, and most iconic comic book stories every week.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

We’ve launched a new segment on our show called SuperRealityTV, where we put various comic book characters into shows like Big Brother, The Bachelor and Survivor and try to figure out who wins. It’s a hilarious and a ton of fun. We’ve got something special planned for our 100th episode comic up soon! I can’t tell you what yet though. We’ll be launching a bonus series called COMICS IN SPACE where we’re going to be talking about some epic Green Lantern comics and Marvel’s cosmic stories that are amazing but not nearly as well-known as their superheroes (featuring your favorite guardians of the galaxy!).

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Oh man I’m terrible at this kind of stuff. All my hot takes are so geeky it’s embarrassing. So a new Spider-Man movie comes out this weekend and you know how nerds like to get into pointless debates on this stuff. My most controversial position is that Spider-Man’s greatest enemy is…. Mary Jane Watson. Think about it! She’s awful!

Additionally people love to talk about superhero movie fatigue. Given the success of Guardians of the Galaxy (and Star Wars!) I could see a shift coming soon where Marvel Cosmic and the Green Lantern Corps could become the blockbuster stars of the next era of comic book movies!
