When Marvel announced their decision to make a movie based on Ant-Man, it probably felt like a risk. Not as well known as Iron Man or Captain America, would people go see a movie about a character who can shrink to the size of an insect? It’s ranked 14th among the MCU movies, so while not as big of a hit as Guardians of the Galaxy, still not a flop either. What did the guys think of the movie? Check it out below and be sure to comment to let us know what you think of Ant-Man!

The first Spider-Man movie. Again. But this time with more Iron Man. That’s right, folks, Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Introduced in Captain America: Civil War, this film follows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he longs to be a part of The Avengers. Too bad that pesky thing called High School is in the way. The awesome Michael Keaton stars as Adrian Toomes, aka The Vulture, as the film’s main villain. How does this film rank compared to previous Spider-Man films? Let us know what you think about it and check out the episode below!

Todd McFarlane was a big name in comics. In 1992 he created his original character Spawn and unleashed him upon the world. A murdered CIA operative who makes a deal with the devil, Al Simmons is transformed into a supernatural “hell-spawn” who decides to break his deal and fight for justice.

Or something like that.

The film stars Michael Jai White as Simmons/Spawn, John Leguizamo as The Violator (Clown) and Martin Sheen as Jason Wynn.

Is Spawn good? Take a listen and let the guys tell you what they think.
