SH S1E15: Batman v Superman Analysis

The DCEU has officially started with the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film is bringing the cash along with complex opinions that range from a sub-30% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes to +70% by fans on the same site. People either love or hate this movie with little room for middle ground. With that in mind, we decided to sit down and discuss the main characters, plot points, and expectations for the film and upcoming DCEU movies including Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. So there are lots of spoilers here! You’ve been warned. We also did a poster give away for our viewers who watched the live stream on Twitch as we recorded! We’re not sure what the next give away will be but keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook to find out and make sure to tune in live next week!

Listen to our thoughts and then let us know yours! What did you think of the movie? Are you excited for the future films? Who was your favorite character and who do you think would win in a showdown between DC’s Trinity? Comment below!

SH S1E14: TMNT

We’ve spent a lot of time on DC and Marvel comic book stuff recently, so it’s time to take a break and focus on some green friends, TMNT, otherwise known as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Our reptilian friends have enjoyed four live action films, several animated series incarnations, some videos, and more plus another live action film slated for release this summer. We sit down to talk about what made us fans of TMNT, why we still love them today, what we didn’t like about the Michael Bay Ninja Turtles film, and what we hope to see in the sequel, Out of the Shadows.

As we’ve been doing, this episode was recorded on Twitch in front of a live audience! To get in on the action and to let your voice be heard while we record, subscribe at twitch.tv\griddaily and keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter to know when we’ll be recording next!

SH S1E13: Versus #1 – DC v Marvel

In the first installment of our new Versus series, Rae pits Ryan and I against each other in a classic battle of DC Comics versus Marvel Comics, hero against hero, power against power. Live streamed on Twitch, we randomly pick superheros out of a jar and have to defend why ours should beat the other. Match-ups include Batman versus Captain America, Red Hood v Daredevil, Wonder Woman, v Captain Marvel, and Doctor Fate v Doctor Strange. Additionally, our Twitch subscribers and followers were able to cast their votes live during the recording to help pick our winner! Was it me? Was it Ryan? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Also, don’t forget to join us live on Twitch next week as we record another episode of Screen Heroes! We continue to take viewer comments, suggestions, and questions at twitch.tv\griddaily.

SH S1E12: Ghostbusters Trailer Reaction

This week is our first reaction episode. We sit down and watch the new Ghostbusters trailer live on the podcast and then break down our thoughts. We discuss what the trailer does for the upcoming film, including thoughts on humor style, special effects, music, and casting choices. We also talk about whether the earlier parts of the trailer imply that Ghostbusters is not a reboot but actually a long-lost sequel to the original 1984 film.

We even took questions from our live internet audience! How?

Well, to add to the fun, this is the first time we also hosted a Twitch live stream of us recording the podcast! That’s right, for the people who follow us on Facebook and Twitter, they were altered that they could join us on our Twitch channel to ask questions and watch us live! This something we’ll continue to do, so hopefully you’ll join us next week!

We also announced that this is the LAST episode of Screen Heroes to be dual published on the Grid Talk RSS feed and that Grid Talk is returning this Friday in a new format that will also include live streaming! So, stay tuned and join us Thursday night for a live recording of a new episode of Grid Talk!

SH S1E11: ‘What If’ Iron Man Died?

In our first installment of our new “What If” Screen Heroes segment, we explore the many different stories we’d come across if Iron Man (Tony Stark) died at the end of Marvel’s Avengers. How would Avengers: Age of Ultron be affected? Would other heroes be featured more prominently with Iron Man no longer in the limelight? What about Civil War? These questions and more are answered as we pick apart the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) with this one creative change. We also go on a few tangents and rants. Always good times. Check out what we have to say and then give us your opinion in the comments below.

If you enjoyed the segment, shoot us some ‘What If’ scenarios you’d like us to tackle! Remember, we cover more than just comic book films and series. Anything featuring heroes on TV, in film, or video games is fair game.

SH S1E10: R-Rated Comic Book Films

Just yesterday, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. announced that the upcoming DCEU film, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice will receive a special “Ultimate” R-Rated cut on Blu-Ray. This, of course, comes in the wake of the incredible success of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool, which has shattered R-Rated film records and stands to bring in more than ten times its budget and already has a sequel underway. Many people, like James Gunn are worried that people will take away the wrong message about Deadpool’s success while others think this is a big opportunity for other franchises like Wolverine and Batman to finally see more gritty and darker tones that more closely match their comic book counterparts.

To address the issue, we sit down to talk about the success of Deadpool, our thoughts on an R-Rated Batman movie, and how other comic book movies have fared with their R-rating. Join us for the discussion and then comment with your thoughts. Let us know if you think certain comic book franchise are deserving of an R-Rating or if these films are just asking for trouble.

SH S1E9: Batman, Through the Years

This week on Screen Heroes, Ryan and I are joined by our prop builder friend, Jon to talk about how the DC Comics iconic character, Batman has changed over the years in movies, TV, and video games. We hit on the classic Adam West version, Tim Burton’s take, as well as George Clooney. We also discuss the big Christopher Nolan trilogy and the highly anticipated Ben Affleck debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Outside of movies, we talk about the very popular Arkham video game franchise plus some of Batman’s better known animated works like The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: The Animated Series.

Before we jump into the Dark Knight, the three of us provide our initial thoughts on FOX’s new R-rate superhero film, Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds. We’ve all seen it, now we talk about it. We discuss what we liked about it plus some things they might have done better. It’s a short part of the episode but beware.

SH S1E6: Infinity War 67

After taking a week off due to snowstorms, Screen Heroes returns to discuss what we are all wondering… who will be in Marvel’s Infinity War films set to close out Phase 3 of the MCU? The Russo brothers are responsible for directing not just Captain America: Civil War but also both parts of Infinity War. In an interview, they threw the number 67 out, as the number of characters they are currently working with. Now, they did clarify and say they just threw out a random and generic number but hey, let’s have some fun! Join us as we try to come up with 67 Marvel canon characters that Marvel Studios owns the rights to who could show up in the massive ensemble films!

Once you’ve listened to our list, comment or reach out to use with anyone we missed or who would make your list!

SH S1E5: Ziggy Played Guitar

With the passing of David Bowie this week at the age of 69 from cancer, we sit down to talk about our experiences with his music, film, and TV career. Join us as we talk about his vast range from Ziggy Stardust to The Man Who Fell to Earth to Labyrinth to The  Last Temptation of Christ to The Prestige. We also talk about his new album Blackstar. We used clips from the title song as well as “I Can’t Give Everything Away”, the album’s final track. We do this to set the mood and honor the final works of one of the most transformative and long-lasting vocal talents. We hope you enjoy our journey and take one of your own by commenting with your favorite David Bowie songs or roles.

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” – David Bowie
