Movie Meltdown - Episode 308
This week we assemble at least a portion of The Meltdown Gang to put together our own "Marvel Super Special"! We kick things off with a little discussion of the new Daredevil series, followed by our extended take on this week's Out on the Town feature - Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Plus as one of us has a run-in with a Mr. Fisk, we also discuss... C2E2, House of M, he's Starscream, Tom Hardy, dramatic pacing, Man of Steel, Loki, please cobble this, Vincent D'Onofrio, Doctor Doom, the elevator comment, Mayberry, doing his thing at the artist's table, Elizabeth Olsen, Rick Grimes, the scale is so big, Steven Seagal, Maker's Mark, old John Woo, being a geek God, nuke the city, Joss Whedon, playing off humanity, Andy Serkis, a biological bullet, all of it matters, dialogue, Black Widow, track your people, the money shot, evil Government realism, kind of like Lannisters, the party, Guardians of the Galaxy, you're blind and you're sewing, Jason Momoa, Latveria, a what if comic, Don Cheadle, you couldn't do the shoes, a Canadian douchebag, Superman 3/2, Will Smith, Rob Thomas, Hell's Kitchen, it's not Easter... they're just eggs, PTSD, so CG, Vision, iZombie, Hawkeye, Xander, lifting Mjölnir, I don't want that in my comic book, Planet Hulk, I have my own idea of what they should do - and they should just do it, Civil War, strong female characters, Civil Wars, being attracted to death, he will die in glory, The Dread Pirate Roberts, teamwork, Secret Wars, a foundation of good-lookin' shit, Groot didn't wear Crocs, making an awkward geek noise, the mad scientist speech, Veronica Mars, isolating yourself from the world, mouth movement and... The City!
Spoiler Alert: While we control ourselves as best as we can for Daredevil, it's full spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron (but hopefully you will have seen it by the time you are listening to this episode). Plus a random 28 Weeks Later spoiler sneaks in there as well. You have been warned.
