Strap on your cape, grab your trident, and harness the Speed Force, because the DC TV Report busts out of its small-screen confines this week to bring you a bonus podcast devoted to Justice League, now playing at a theater near you! Ed and Sara open with a spoiler-free discussion of their general impressions, then at (10:46), they shift into a spoilerific discussion of what worked (the music!) what didn’t (the villain—for Sara, anyway), and how the film fits into the overall DCEU.
This week we give a spoiler-free review of Justice League touch base with the Punisher and give a status report on Star Trek! Plus Quentin's working on a 70's era, Manson murder related movie, we discuss! Somebody it trying to reboot STRIPES! Franco joins the X-Men! Also we discuss 1922, The Punisher and the potential of cereal!
Strap on your pig masks and tune in to another episode of the DC TV Report!
