“D.B. Cooper” is easily one of the most confounding mysteries of the 20th century. The mysterious hijacker who got away with $200,000 has proven to be just as elusive as Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster. So much so that after 45 years, the FBI finally closed the door on the case back in 2016! If the freaking Federal Bureau of Investigation gives up, you know it’s probably not getting solved by some random podcaster in his basement. Even Sherlock Holmes himself would have had trouble with this one…
“It’s an incredibly bad look to cancel a Latina Batgirl movie.” – Kevin Smith
Erik and Chris return to discuss the latest geek news – with ALL of Kevin Feige’s Marvel Phase 5 *and* 6 announcements from this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2022! Meanwhile, the new head of Warner Bros decided to cancel not only the (nearly completed) “Batgirl” movie, starring Leslie Grace (and Michael Keaton!), but several other DC projects from the CW and HBO Max (including Kevin Smith’s work on “Strange Adventures” an animated anthology which honestly sounded cool as hell) all in an apparent attempt to save $3 billion with a tax loophole, but the move has since apparently backfired causing them to lose $20 billion after pissing off the entire internet, because of course it did. So you know, the usual.
Note: In this episode we accidentally referred to Ezra Miller as ‘he’ instead of ‘they’, but mean no disrespect the trans community, just an honest slip up.

*Note: this episode was recorded prior to the release of “Moon Knight”, “Ms. Marvel”, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, and “Thor: Love and Thunder”. We also had some technical difficulties and had to record the episode over two separate recording sessions, so there may be some repeated comments.

Outdated rumors about “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”
Sigh… another bizarre comic cover that has nothing to do with the actual issue…
You’re telling me that Wolverine, Spider-man, *AND* the Punisher don’t actually appear in the issue in which they are featured prominently on the cover? Seriously, why did they even feel the need to troll us like that?! This was worse than getting rick rolled back in the day, because you actually had to shell out hard earned lawn mowing money before getting home and realizing you were duped.
*Note: this episode was recorded back in early February, 2022!*
An extremely outdated episode where Chris and Erik catch up on what they’ve been reading, and speculate about things that are already out now, before talking about the DC / CW “Arrow-verse” shows: ‘The Flash’, ‘Supergirl’, ‘Arrow’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, ‘Batwoman’, etc – now that Erik’s finally caught up on the epic “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover!
