Marvel Movies – The Avengers 2, Deadpool and Race-Bending
The Marvel comic book movie round table podcast continues as the CCS crew divulges their hopes and expectations for Marvel’s The Avengers 2, discusses Fox’s outrageous mistreatment of the Merc with the Mouth (Deadpool) in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, share their frustration with Hollywood’s petty behind-the-scenes squabbles over franchise rights (Daredevil, Fantastic Four), and even touch upon the sensitive issue of gratuitous race-bending and the need to bring excellent minority characters like Luke Cage, Black Panther and others to the big screen. Hoo boy.
Part 1 may have been by and large an enlightening lecture on the history of the superhero movie genre by Professor B-Mask. Part 2, however, is where the real fun begins!
