NEXT WEEK: We’ll bring Rus BACK on next week to discuss all the Walking Dead stuff he WASN’T allowed to spill this week. PLUS: we gauge YOUR reaction to the brutal death. And we countdown the Top 10 most powerful deaths in comics and movies!

So Entertainment Weekly put out it’s list of “50 Most Powerful Superheroes.” And of course they got it all wrong. And they did it on purpose too.

Yes, I understand this list is meant to spur conversation. Putting Superman at the top of the list wouldn’t really spur debate  (or would it? Maybe considering how bad his films have been recently…) but did I expect any less from a magazine like Entertainment Weekly who continually pushes a PC agenda? No. So why am I up in arms? I think it’s because EW is the closest thing we have to a magazine about comics anymore. It’s filled the void once occupied by Wizard Magazine. And that’ what makes me sad.

See for yourself. Go check out the list and the criteria for their conclusion and tell me if you agree. Then tune in Wednesday 8pm ET TalkingAlternative.com for MY take on this mess.

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

Doctor Strange Test Screenings Have Been Positive
Last month it was reported by Collider that director Scott Derrickson said the test screenings turned out positive and they love Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance.

“We’ve had a few test screenings, and the overwhelming thing I’ve learned is that people love Benedict Cumberbatch in this movie. They just love him. You know, it’s kind of the headline I guess. They love the visuals, they love the action. But more than that they love Benedict, and he is Doctor Strange.”

Next week: We go spinning the racks to bring you the very latest on the Pop Culture universe! Infinity War! Star Wars! Walking Dead and more! PLUS: We’re working on a very VERY big guest. We’ll give you the deets when you tune in 8pm TalkingAlternative.com

With Civil War less than a week away we pose 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. Join the conversation 11am on TalkingAlternative.com

What a wacky movie world we live in! MIB 23, the rumored Men In Black, 21 Jump Street crossover is official.

Yeah, it’s one thing to have something like say Civil War crossing their characters but has every studio gone mad?? Sigh…is this even more ramifications from DC’s movie strategy that includes Batman V Superman, Justice League and Suicide Squad? Or is this something cool?

We welcome our Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez, whose company Starlight Runner helped craft the MIB story universe, to help break down the craziness and give us insight into the new Avatar and Civil War films as well. PLUS: We continue our DC movie debate!

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??
