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

The RevNews coverage of all things Captain America: Civil War concludes! We came, we saw, we laughed and we cried! Oh, did our group of podcasters cry as the movie hit them hard, as the internet says, right in the feels. RevNews hosts Gary Mitchel & Tegan Hendrickson have reconvened with registered fans Mike Nelson, Ryan Guthrie and, Jennifer Hartshorn to see if the movie met their previously discussed expectations, or if it needs to be sent to its room (that may be an exaggeration).

Listen in as they talk about why previous delays weren't Tegan's fault; their general reactions to the movie; the capable hands of the Russo Brothers; what predictions they got right (and wrong); their trouble believing that was Howard Stark's car; Tony's deep need for therapy; their quibbles and the feels; Zemo's plan and if Mike was happy that Zemo wasn't Cobra Commandered; the deaths, more feels and the many needs for hugs; how they felt about all the characters; Bucky's Legolas moment; Tony's need for therapy; the incredible cuteness of Vision & Wanda; the redemption of Clint Barton; their need for a Black Panther movie right now; what Spidey brought to Team Tony; Zemo's vicory and need for another hug; Tegan's use of "Hobbiting" as a verb; the big airport fight; how the Russo brothers used our expectations against us in a fantastic way; the intensity & deep feels of the final fight; Bucky putting on a smile for Steve’s sake; #TeamBladder; and where they ranks it amongst the MCU movies so far.

The RevNews coverage of all things Captain America: Civil War continues! In this new episode, host Gary Mitchel calls in the world's foremost Flash fan and comics expert Shaun Rosado to discuss the epic comics event, and all its related series, which has inspired the movie!

Tune in as they explain why this movie may be the closest the MCU will come to the actual comics; a bit of history of The Avengers in comics along with everything going on in comics & the real world that influenced this epic event; the differences in how MARVEL handles a recalibration vs how DC does it; what started the Civil war & the two sides' arguments; what the series did to Tony Stark as a character & how Movie Tony and Comics Tony differ; how all the character moments seem to be in the side-books and the BIG moments are in the main book; which side Gary and Shaun are on; where Shaun thinks all the villains were while the heroes fought; the final fight that ended the war, the denouement, the lingering aftermath & how it affected the MAREL Comics Universe for the next few years; and what they consider to be essential (and NON-essential) reading for the event.

The DC Cinematic Universe begins here! And it begins with the epic clash between their biggest heroes! Can Goyer and Snyder meet the challenge of making a movie that can not only face off against MARVEL, but fandom's mixed reactions to Man of Steel? RevNews hosts Gary Mitchel & Tegan Hendrickson call in Nathan Laws to round out their podcast league to discuss these issues and more, before and then after they watched the movie!

Tune in as the trinity discuss Snyder's strengths and weaknesses; who they wish had been cast as Batman (he'd done it before); if "fun" is a bad word to the DC/WB executives; the idea of DC as a movie & TV multiverse; the intrinsic qualities of Superman; how they like their Lex; and how Nathan takes Tegan's joy.

Then, after they've seen the movie, they cover what did work . . . and what didn't; the whole "Martha" thing; how this Batman was built & what was missing from him; Gary explains the glowy-guy who confused Tegan & Nathan; what they feel is the movie's fundamental flaw; Nathan discovers the movie's one moment of real depth; how this hardly speaking Superman is oddly fatalistic; Tegan's need to know why Perry doesn't fire Kent; why Moma deserves a good Aquaman movie; Luthor's lack of menace; the aftermath of the movie in both the fandom and financial areas; and how they ultimately feel about the movie.
