EL FANBOY- Episode 12: “Guardians, A New Star Wars Saga, And What Happens If Wonder Woman Bombs?”

With Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 coming out later this week, El Fanboy Podcast host Mario-Francisco Robles treated himself to his second-ever viewing of the original Guardians of The Galaxy in order to prep for a screening he’s attending tonight. With a video review for Vol. 2 heading to the official El Fanboy YouTube page, what did he think of the first Guardians? Did the film remain firmly in his Meh Column, or is he now hyped for the sequel? Also, this week, you listeners out there sent in another round of fantastic questions. They ranged from “What happens to the DCEU if Wonder Woman bombs?” to “Where will LucasFilm go with Star Wars after Episode IX?” and more. Along the way, MFR offers his most thoughtful analysis, informed projections, and suggestions for what to watch out there in your Fanboy (or fanGIRL) travels! He also discusses the latest news on all the films and TV series (like Stranger Things) you should be bracing yourselves for, and sounds off on this week’s hot topics. Remember, you can find the El Fanboy Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, and where ever Podcasts are available.

EXCLUSIVE: How GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Could Help Usher Galactus Into The MCU

Do Fox and Marvel Have Something Fantastic Up Their Sleeves? On yesterday’s episode of the El Fanboy Podcast, I broke the story that a doorway will be getting opened when Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out on May 5th. It’s a doorway that’s potentially very, very significant. It’s one that could lead us down a path that ultimately brings characters like Silver Surfer, The Fantastic Four, and Galactus into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of decades, Marvel doesn’t own the movie rights for characters in the Fantastic Four and X-Men canons. No, those belong to...
