Operation Kino 139: The Future Of Marvel And Of Dumb Hunger Games Merchandising

By Operation Kino 2013-11-12 12:35:47discussion comments
This week we're processing both the weekend performance of Thor: The Dark World and Marvel Studio's giant deal with Netflix to talk about the future of Marvel comics, and how in the coming years pretty much everything Disney makes will all be linked together. We also dig into the new J.J. Abrams production that just so happens to be a book, wonder why the Hunger Games marketing tie-ins seem to completely miss the point of the book, answer a listener voicemail about the future of movie fandom after video stores are gone, and pick the 1999 movies for which we want to see a completely unexpected sequel.

Click here to see a box of Hunger Games chocolates identical to the ones Katey received. They are, we must confirm, delicious.

Also, apologies for the audio quality on Patches' end. Unavoidable technical difficulty that will not be repeated.

Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich) on Twitter.

We also welcome your feedback, and there are lots of new places you can find us! Find us and like us at our Facebook page or call and leave us a voicemail at (914) 410-6450-- if we like it, we may play it on an upcoming show.
