Welcome to the first EVER episode of The Flickering Myth Movie Show!
*puts on party hat, pulls party popper*
In our debut March edition, we’re talking the biggest news of the year so far: Spider-Man has come back home to Marvel. What will this mean for the Avengers? When will we first see him? And who will play Peter Parker? We’re chatting all that, AND geting YOUR thoughts (looking at you, Mr and Ms. Public) on the street.
And if all this Marvel Character Copyright stuff is confusing, we’ve got you covered too, with our very own Doctor Rage explaining why you don’t see the X-Men, Fantastic Four or others in some Marvel films with his Infinity Copyright Gauntlet.
We’ve also got a great interview with Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kickass and Layer Cake director Matthew Vaughn AND writer of Marvel’s Civil War storyline Mark Millar about Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie (on which they’re executive producer and creative consultant, respectively).
And, because Insurgent is out this month, we go back in our archives and chat to Kate Winslet about its predecessor – Divergent – which came out last year. It’s the first sequel the actress has ever made.
We’ve also got our movie memes contest and we’re choosing our favourite Movies of the Month – including The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water, The Voices, Get Hard, Still Alice and more.
Subscribe here to be notified first when the April edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show goes live. We’ve got a load of other great videos coming your way, too, so stay tuned.
