Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. In 2012, Marvel Studios did something no one had yet dared to do: Make a movie filled with superheroes who had all already had their own standalone films. The Avengers were assembled. Sure, we had the X-Men movies, which are filled with super powered beings, but this time we were going to get Iron Man and Captain America… in the same movie! With Thor! And the Hulk! It seemed too good to be true.
Yet in May of 2012, Joss Whedon made it come true.
Is it the best superhero movie of all time?
Also, Star Wars, Batman v Superman, Fantastic Four and Jurassic World all revealed new trailers this past week. The guys couldn’t NOT talk about that.
Before The Avengers, Marvel’s Phase One ended with the film, Captain America: The First Avenger. Taking place during World War II, it follows the story of Steve Rogers, a small man with a big heart and a drive to fight. After volunteering for a “super soldier” program, he becomes Captain America.
Join the guys as we discuss the origin of the first Avenger and how the film holds up against the other Marvel films.
Three years after the prequel that let everyone down (except high school Justin) came Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Starring newcomer Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, audiences thought to themselves This one can’t possibly be worse than the first one, right?
How wrong we were. Join the guys as they discuss Attack of the Clones and see where it stands among the rest of the Star Wars films.
