Weekend Movie News Podcast: Venom, New Mutants, Black Panther.
We take to the air to cover the latest casting news, rumors, and trailers.
We revive the movie news roundup with a round robin podcast. This weekend, Nate and I tackle Sony’s latest attempts to jump-start a Spider-Man cinematic universe, without Spider-Man. We also look at Fox’s newest mutant movie, aptly titled The New Mutants. After all of that, we settle in with some fresh new trailers and see if anything gets us excited to head to the theater.
As a sad addition, we also do a in memoriam section this week for Adam West, famous for the 1960’s Batman show, and Glenne Headly who was best known for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels but also had a wide-ranging career.
