EL FANBOY: “Imploding Universes, Hammering DC, and Kiddy SJW Star Wars?”

EL FANBOY: “Imploding Universes, Hammering DC, and Kiddy SJW Star Wars?”

Hot on the heels of The Mummy unraveling at the box office and starting off Universal’s Dark Universe on shaky groundEl Fanboy Podcast Mario-Francisco Robles explores how cinematic universes themselves are looking these days. From Marvel to DC to Star Wars, how is Hollywood’s obsession with Cinematic Universes doing? Is it sustainable?

MFR also takes time to touch on all the hottest fanboy topics currently making the rounds:

  • What’s Armie Hammer’s real status with the DCEU?
  • How is Colin Trevorrow approaching Star Wars: Episode IX?
  • Josh Brolin is such a fanboy
  • What exactly will Joss Whedon be adding/changing to Justice League (hint: There’ll be more Wonder Woman goodness!)
  • The Mummy director’s recent comments about Tom Cruise’s character in the movie seemingly show how far away from the original concept the movie went
  • What’s the obsession with who Zendaya is playing in Spider-Man: Homecoming? Are last week’s rumors to be believed? Did that just get debunked? Does it even matter?
  • Is Mark Hamill feuding with Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s director Rian Johnson?
  • How do Hamill’s recent comments about superhero movies work perfectly with what folks like Doug Liman and John Landis have been saying about the current comic book movie landscape?

And much more!
