Welcome to HeroBlend #58! This week Eric and Adrienne will talk over the possibilities of The Batman and give spoiler-free and spoiler-filled reviews of X-Men: Dark Phoenix! Up first, though, we've got a lot of news to cover. So, we'll be getting into topics like the chances of Avengers: Endgame toppling Avatar's worldwide box office record now that the film is finally slowing down, why Brightburn has fallen so much in its second week, the latest on the cancellation of DC Universe's Swamp Thing, the fantastic new Wonder Woman 1984 image, what Marvel should do with the Fantastic Four and X-Men...and when they should do it.
Next...Well, it's finally official. We have our new Batman and his latest solo film can actually start filming. We'll talk about the casting of Robert Pattinson, what we think this means for his career, how we think his competition for the role might have done in the part, how Pattman might compare to the Batmen who've come before, whether or not we think this needs to connect to the established DCEU, and more!
Lastly, we'll get into the big news for this week: the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Eric and Adrienne have both seen it and they're ready to give you their full, unvarnished views on the movie that will wrap up this incarnation of the mutant team. Because we love you, we'll start with our spoiler-free thoughts and then move into our full spoiler reviews and go over everything from the action, plot, characters, how the Dark Phoenix story was handled, how well this concludes the X-Men saga and more. 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!
