Welcome to HeroBlend #66! This week, Eric, Adrienne and Gabe will talk about Venom 2 updates and give full reviews of Amazon's The Boys and Swamp Thing on DC Universe! Up first, though, we have some pressing superhero news to get into. We'll be discussing Hobbs & Shaw box office results, how X-Men: Dark Phoenix has changed the course of other former Fox properties in the new Disney era, talk over the exciting new plans that have been revealed about The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrow-verse crossover, dive into all the exciting Venom 2 news, and more!
Next up, Swamp Thing has finally wrapped up its first and (unfortunately) final season on DC Universe, so we'll give our full, spoiler-filled reviews of the ambitious horror / superhero hybrid. We will be getting into everything from the pace of the show, how the horror elements work, our favorite performances, that teased surprise at the very end and many of our remaining questions.
Then, we'll go into detail about the new Amazon hit The Boys, as promised last week. We've all watched the entirety of the twisted superhero show, and we've got lots to say! So, we will talk bout the ending, what we hope to see in the already confirmed Season 2, the biggest / best surprises, why one particular character arc is throwing us for a bit of a loop and a lot more. Also, be sure to listen through the very end of the show for a special announcement!
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!
