Welcome to the HeroBlend Podcast #17! Buckle up, folks, we've got a lot to talk about, and we're going to start, as usual, with the biggest superhero news items of the week. After detailing a recently announced DCEU film, talking about why Donald Glover's planned animated Deadpool series will no longer air and revealing the Marvel movie that will be the last to hit Netflix, we'll get into the meat of our latest episode. This week, we're going to get into the newly released Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut, some James Gunn updates, talk about the brand new Oscar category that might impact superhero movies and discuss Sony's updated plans for its Spider-Man Cinematic Universe.
After catching you up on the important parts of the Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut, we'll give you the latest updates on the (incredibly messy) James Gunn and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 situation in our new weekly segment, Five Minutes Under The Gunn. Then, we will give you everything you need to know about the new "popular film" category that the Oscars is planning to introduce for the 2020 awards, and tell you exactly what we think it will mean for our beloved superhero movies, as well as other genre films. Last, but not least, Sony has offered up some new information on the Spider-Man universe they're planning to build, which will start when Venom hits theaters in October, and, you can rest assured that your intrepid hosts have some very strong opinions on what's being done.
