ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about repressed childhood memories.
First up, Alex and Brandon open and review the most recent box from Marvel Collector Corps, which was filled with awesome goodies, as always. Then, Brandon picks what to talk about for this week's ABC's of Geekdom segment. After that, much to Brandon's chagrin, Alex covers a bunch of old topics from last week's show, including The Walking Dead, Julius Caesar, Pokémon, Elden Henson, more Rotom formes, Jamie Campbell Bower and his roles in the Harry Potter movies and the Twilight saga, Lightsaber crystals, Order 66 and the Jedi Purge, the Force Unleashed, the Amazing Spider-Man, John Williams, Moana, Donald Glover, Mary Jane Watson, new video games featuring older characters with beards, God of War III, Ed Boon, Crash Bandicoot, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Assassin's Creed, Detroit: Become Human, Injustice, and DuckTales. Whew.
After that, the boys cover some news from the past week, including more casting for Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Rock potentially playing a role in an upcoming remake of The Wolfman, the tragic death of Anton Yelchin, Lynda Carter coming to Supergirl, Darth Vader and Saw Gerrera coming to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Bryan Cranston being cast as Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers movie, a teaser for the next season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., more in-depth discussion of the gameplay from Injustice 2, and the newly revealed logo and plot details for the Justice League movie. After that, the boys have the first of a four part discussion about the nerdy things from their childhoods that made them into the nerds they are today. Don't worry, you won't be hearing any sob stories. Last but not least, the boys have an all-new, super-sized Fan Fic Fights to bring down the house.
Don't forget to watch Brandon's pick for our collective movie watching and discussion, Whiplash. Again, this is an extremely compelling, extremely intense movie with plenty of cursing, so you have been warned. We will be talking all about that movie in two weeks (NOT next week like was said on the previous episode), so make sure to watch it and send us your emails to read on the show.
