RevCast: from
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

It's now official! MARVEL has released their slate of the movies for Phase Three! 10 movies! Three years! THANOS! The introduction of Black Panther and Captain Marvel! This comes on the heels of DC's announcing their movie plans for the Justice League, Wonder Woman, and more through 2020, Fox's merry mutant movies and the ongoing tribulations at Sony with the Spider-Man series. All in all, there's a lot to discuss, unpack and get excited about here. So RevNews host Gary Mitchel has called in comics and movie experts Nathan Laws, Tegan Hendrickson and Michael Falkner to go over this impressive schedule of spandex-clad films!

Listen in as they talk all about MARVEL's broadening their roster vs giving existing characters new movies; DC's conservative mindset vs MARVEL's fan-based announcements; Gary's adventures in tooth removal and medication; how if you announce Hiddleston, the Tumblr will be there; which of the movies really excite them; details on the Sony/MARVEL Spider-Man situation; how Kevin Feige is MARVEL's secret weapon for success; MARVEL's integrated universe vs DC's multiverse; Tegan's position on Cumberbatch being in all of the things; their squee over the Age of Ultron trailer and the bonus scene; the reason Nathan is a fan of Tegan; and MARVEL's success at making each movie feel different, and not just "another super-hero movie"

It is hard to believe, but the movie Krull came out 30 years ago.  In this episode from the vaults, co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sit down with Nathan Laws to discuss the cult classic in all it's cheesy glory. The three come to the conclusion that Krull is like your first knitting poject. There is also a discussion of the Doctor Who effect on genre film making and Barry Bostwick in Lycra! Yes, Lycra.

You have been warned.

RevCast Listeners


In episode 237, a bit of audio was left in the podcast that was never meant to be public on the web.  This was a huge mistake made solely by me, Deanna Toxopeus, the RevCast producer and co-host. This mistake hurt and embarrassed several RevCast contributors. And for that mistake, I sincerely apologize.  I am not someone who deliberately sets out to hurt people.  Nor do I ever want to be.


But that being said, I still made a grievous error, one that I am deeply ashamed of and sorry for. If I could take it back, I would.  But I can’t. I can only do better in the future.

Again, my apologies to RevolutionSF, the RevCast contributors and to you, our listeners.  I am so sorry.
