Erik and Chris got together to see the latest DC movie, “Black Adam”, and decided to record a quick impromptu episode on their initial thoughts of the film, where they think the DCEU could be heading next, how the movie compares to the JSA / Black Adam comics, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, how Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson fills in the iconic role of Teth-Adam himself, and of course that reveal in the post-credits scene… (Spoilers Ahead!)

“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.
