Welcome to HeroBlend #65! This week, Eric, Adrienne and Gabe have a special show for you that includes an interview with Hobbs & Shaw director David Leitch! First, though, we'll discuss the week's major superhero news items. This will include word about Joker's Oscar potential, fans' fears for Wonder Woman 1984, the big villain who'll appear in New Gods, when Black Adam could start filming, a Swamp Thing surprise, plus updates on Venom 2 and Black Widow.
Next, Amazon's new superhero show The Boys has finally premiered, and we're going to give you a spoiler-free rundown of what you can expect from the diabolical series that takes superhero tropes to new heights by taking its characters to some insane lows. We'll talk about the characters, mysteries that are building and give our general thoughts on how the first half of the eight-part series is shaping up. Be sure to tune in next week, because then we'll get into full spoilers and talk about how everything in The Boys wraps up.
Last, but definitely not least, we've come to our massive Hobbs & Shaw portion of the podcast! We'll start by giving you our general thoughts on the first in what will probably be a long line of Fast & Furious spinoffs, then move into Eric's interview with director David Leitch. They'll be talking all about the surprising cameos, action and spoilers, so be sure to head out to see the film before you listen! We'll then wrap things up by getting into our own spoilery thoughts on the action movie.
