Captain America : Civil War is a thing that happened and we all sat down to discuss how a bigger middle finger to Zack Snyder and his worldview does not exist. In so doing we invited our friend Jacob Semahn (@saxonjacob) to talk about the best Avengers film since Avengers.
Everybody went to go see Deadpool and so did we. We actually don’t talk about the film as much as we should because Jake had a drink beforehand and figured that tangents were the way to go. Because tangents.
The gang is all back together to talk about something in their usual wheelhouse; gender politics and Marvel adaptations. Using Netflix’s Jessica Jones as a focal point Jake, Alva, and Meredith discuss how the Marvel brand has cultivated itself into a unified juggernaut that seemingly understands the power they wield and how they might use that power in the future.
Goners and Avengers Assemble scribe Jacob (@SaxonJacob) Semahn returns to talk Marvel’s Ant-Man with the Pop and Schlock crew. Tangents are explored and we play “Which-Heroine-Does-Marvel-Think-Is-Important-And-Why” in this week’s thrilling episode.
Marvel must have some raging Catholic guilt over the cinematic sin that was 2003’s Daredevil so they’ve made their penance with a new Netflix series featuring the “Man without Fear.” How did it turn out? Annie Bulloch of 8th Dimension Comics and Isaiah Broussard of Transyltown join Jake, Alva, and Meredith to talk about the show at length! As always, spoilers abound.
Did you miss the completely epic SchlockStream 2014 where Jake, Alva, Meredith, and a cadre of guests watched every Marvel movie in release order in under 24 hours? Well if so this should be a happy surprise for you as we have decided to release a select few commentaries as a bonus for our lucky listeners! Up first is 2008’s universe defining IRON MAN! Listen as we talk almost exclusively about things that are NOT Iron Man! Try to hear things Jake’s brother frustratingly says off mic! It’s our first ever SchlockTrack!
THE FEMINISTS HAVE THE POLICE BOX! In this week’s episode Alva (@NurseMcHurt) put out the Valkryie warcry and assembled a team of female-type folk to come together and talk about Guardians of the Galaxy and how much they love the butts contained therein! Featuring Annie Bulloch (@TexasAnnie) of 8th Dimension Comics and Meredith “Death Harpie” Nudo (@MeredithNudo) of several government watch-lists, this episode is sure to be a crowd pleaser! #PlayDohForNudo
