EL FANBOY: “That BLADE RUNNER Threesome, Brolin For BATMAN, and The Future of MARVEL and DC!”

There’s a lot to talk about this week, and El Fanboy host Mario-Francisco Robles covers it all. Whether it’s a spoiler discussion on one of BLADE RUNNER 2049’s most controversial scenes, Josh Brolin talking about being part of the X-Men Universe and the Marvel Universe (and why he SHOULD have been in the DC Universe), Karl Urban possibly reprising Dredd, Netflix dominating the world, and Harvey Weinstein’s indiscretions actually hurting JUSTICE LEAGUE…there’s a ton to talk about. Along the way, he also touches on Box Office, new trailers for Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER, THE NEW MUTANTS, and STRANGER THINGS Season...
