Welcome to HeroBlend #39! Eric and Adrienne are going over the major reveals from CinemaBlend's visit to the Shazam! set last year and giving a full spoiler review of The Punisher Season 2! Up first, though, we'll be answering a listener question from Twitter, and then moving on to many exciting news items that came out this week. We'll be going over some clearer plans for the future of X-Force and Deadpool films, Gambit updates, Black Panther and other superhero movie Oscar nominations, DC's new focus for its movies, that damn Snyder cut of Justice League, news on the Batman solo movie and much more!
Next, after discussing the new trailer, we'll dive into what Dirk Libbey learned when he got the chance to visit the Shazam! set last year, and he got the scoop on lots of aspects of the movie. So, we dive into topics such as why Zachary Levi almost didn't audition for Shazam, Mark Strong's reason for thinking the film's villain needed to be truly horrible, and why the DC universe won't really impact Billy Batson in the film, along with many other intriguing topics!
Last, we'll go over the ins and outs of The Punisher Season 2. It was another long, brutal adventure for Frank Castle and company, and we'll talk all about the villains, action, good bits, surprises, Franks's allies, and let you know what we didn't like. Now, sit back and relax, folks, because this is one chat you're not going to want to miss. Ready to dive in? Great! Listen for yourself above!
