Podcast 14: Porch Age of Podcast

Sorry for the delayed podcast post, a member of our crew’s significant other gave birth to what appears to be a human so we had to shift duties.

This is probably our longest cast yet, we absolutely ruin Avengers: Age of Ultron and Daredevil with a smattering of other topics. Enjoy!

SPOOOOOOOON!

THE TICK

 

Amazon recently announced that they will be picking up The Tick! live action TV series that was short lived on Fox back in 2003. The Tick, originally a comedic comic book character written and drawn by Ben Edlund, will once again star Patrick Warburton (Puddy from Seinfeld) as The Tick, but as of right now costars David Burke (rabbit moth Arthur), Liz Vassey (Captain Liberty), or Nestor Carbonell (Batmanuel, or Die Fledermaus in the comics and cartoon.) I hope we see some Chairface and Sewer Urchin personally!

Edlund, who has previous done episodes for Firefly, Star Wars The Clone Wars, and been involved with The Venture Bros, will once again write and produce the updated live action show. Amazon has committed to offering up the pilot for free, and pending viewer response, will look to order more episodes. Make sure you check it out!

Can you smell.. What DC.. Is cooking?!

 

The Rock black Adam

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced today that he will be playing the role of Captain Marvel’s nemesis, the sometimes antihero Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam movie from New Line Cinema and DC Comics.

The Rock has been teasing his possible role in a future DC movie, however many thought he would be playing the eponymous role of Shazam in a rumored extremely kid friendly film.

With Dwayne confirmed to be Black Adam I am hoping the movie will take a darker route – and personally I think that he can fill the position of Black Adam perfectly, as he was (and sometimes still is) the Most Electrifying Man in all of Sports Entertainment! Ironic, no?

News Flash!

Flash

 

Okay, its not really news – I just really wanted to use that title. What is new is the above poster that the CW released on The Flash Facebook page featuring young Barry Allen, police forensic scientist for Central City, zig zagging around town in his red rubber suit. MTV.com has written a great article pointing out all the Easter Eggs in the background of the poster, including a Queens Consolidated building in the background and some graffiti stating “GRODD LIVES.”

The Flash, which is a spin off of CW’s Arrow live action TV show based on DC Comic’s Green Arrow, debuts on Tuesday October 7th. I cant wait!

Captain Citrus and Marvel?

 

Captain Citrus

Florida Department of Citrus has contracted Marvel Comics, for $1 million, to revitalize cartoon character “Captain Citrus”

The Florida Department of Citrus has been suffering for many reasons which include decreased demand for orange juice and a disease that has been plaguing citrus growers throughout Florida (Citrus Greening Disease).  To combat these issues, the three year old mascot will receive a Marvel makeover!  However the fun wont stop here; Captain Citrus is also making (buying) some new friends too.

“The new Captain Citrus will appear this fall in the custom Marvel comic with the Avengers.”

Aside from this amazing appearance, Marvel will release three digital comic books and an animated trailer.  Best of all, there will be a contest that will offer “One of our fans the opportunity for a cameo in a Marvel comic”.

So the only question is….. Avengers 3?

MLAAW

First a thank you to my compatriot Philip for loaning me Marvel NOW’s Hawkeye Volume 1: My Life as a Weapon. Hawkeye has been a bigger player in the Marvel universe since his characters introduction in the Avengers film.

I know personally I didn’t care much for Hawkeye, or at the very least was ambivalent to his character (what’s with the original design’s mask??) but since Avengers Marvel has done a decent job making him seem relevant while maintaining the fact that he is a non-powered hero. I particularly enjoy that the majority of this title takes place at the ‘street’ level, with almost no involvement of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers.
