EL FANBOY: “JUSTICE LEAGUE And THOR: RAGNAROK Scoops Come Home To Roost”
It’s unbelievable. The amount of news covered on this episode of El Fanboy, coupled with a fun, insightful chat with Da7e Gonzalez of STORM OF SPOILERS and Kellvin Chavez of THE SPLASH REPORT and LATINO-REVIEW, made this episode a pure joy to put together for you.
For episode 38 of the El Fanboy Podcast, I cover ALL the latest news about Box Office titan THOR: RAGNAROK, the details from the latest exposé on JUSTICE LEAGUE and DC ENTERTAINMENT by The Wall Street Journal. I also discuss the potential deal that would find Fox (and the X-MEN) dealt to Disney (and thus, Marvel Studios), and the ramifications of that.
Of note about JUSTICE LEAGUE, the WSJ piece confirms the scoop I wrote right here back in May about the two major overhauls of the film has undergone. As our source had put it, it was like the film had been “remade twice” because of the these major facelifts. The first was when Geoff Johns became DC President, a few months into principal photography and tweaked the script himself so that it would lighter and more optimistic. The second was earlier this year when they brought in Joss Whedon to write (and eventually direct) a bunch of new sequences.
Similarly, during our spoiler-laden discussion about THOR: RAGNAROK, Da7e and Kellvin reminisce about what a pleasure it’s been to see their old “Planet Hulk In The MCU” scoop, how it evolved, and how the third Thor film finally brought it to fruition.
