HeroBlend #20: Heroic Predictions And Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut

Welcome to HeroBlend #20! This week, Eric and Adrienne are excited to introduce you to two new segments, Heroic Predictions, where we throw out our best predictions for current superhero movies or TV shows, and Retro Review, where we see just how well a classic superhero film holds up. After a healthy dose of news, which will include some brand new information on DC Universe, some casting confusion involving Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie, early Aquaman reactions, a Thanos fan theory and much more, we'll get right into this week's segments!

First us, of course, will be Five Minutes Under the Gunn. Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been delayed while the studio searches for a new director, we'll go over some big picture questions about Gunn and the franchise as a whole. Next, is Heroic Predictions, where Eric and Adrienne give you their wildest predictions for things that they think might happen in the world of superhero movies or TV, and then discuss how likely those predictions actually are. Last, we'll treat you to a Retro Review of _Watchmen: The Ultimate Cu_t. How has the film held up? Is the ending of the movie better or worse than the one in the comics? If you love blue, glowy dong in your movies, is there enough here to satisfy your cravings? We'll discuss all that and more!
