So San Diego Comic Con was a bit of alright. New Star Wars footage… Deadpool, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad trailers… it was, pretty much, ALL OF THE NEWS.“Zack, listen to me. THIS is how you direct a movie. I’m Batman.”
That’s the main focus for this August edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show. In it, our esteemed panel debate the San Diego Comic Con 2015 news, picking a definitive (well, kind of) winner of the three-day geek-fest.
There’s also a special chat with Harrison Ford, JJ Abrams, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac and more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a Suicide Squad trailer breakdown (revealing who The Joker REALLY IS torturing at the end of the teaser) and an exclusive interview with Nat Wolff and John Green about their new movie Paper Towns.
And, as always, the panel pick their movies of the month as they go through August’s biggest releases – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Trainwreck, Fantastic Four and a whole load more.
Check out the new episode below, and get involved in the debate by letting us know who YOU think won San Diego Comic Con 2015 in the YouTube comments section…
