Join Oli and Luke in this week’s Flickering Myth Podcast for…
SCOOPERHERO NEWS – Infinite Crisis hits the DC Extended Universe! Director Seth Grahame-Smith leaves The Flash over “creative differences,” James Wan feeling “trepidation” about Aquaman and Zack Snyder fighting with Warner Bros. over Justice League. It’s not all gloom and doom for the DCEU, though – Green Lantern Corps might have found a very good director to impose their will, and the Batman solo movie could end up being the greatest Caped Crusader story ever told (if they follow Oli and Luke’s suggestions, that is). Oh, and Captain America: Civil War is out in the States this weekend. The film gets a spoiler-free review.
STAR WARS – Mads Mikkelsen lets slip his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story role and will Supreme Leader Snoke also feature in the film?
EVERYTHING ELSE – more troubles over at Sony’s Ghostbusters remake, Space Jam 2 gets a director, Dredd TV series “conversations are happening,” and an excellent piece of casting for the Tomb Raider reboot’s Lara Croft.
MAILBAG – how do actors drink cups of coffee when filming multiple takes? Would Marvel’s Inhumans made Disney more money than Indiana Jones and The Disappearance of His Bastard Child? Have 20th Century Fox and Marvel already made an agreement over X-Men? And was Boba Fett really the killer of Luke Skywalker’s aunt and uncle?!
POST-CREDITS SEQUENCE – Oli went to interview Anthony Mackie (Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) about their new film Captain America: Civil War, but all Mackie wanted to talk about was Oli’s amazing eyes.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Martin Freeman (Sherlock) as Everett Ross.
