After a lengthy slumber that feels like something the Winter Soldier would have experienced, Remember When is back on the air. Grab a drink and get comfortable, because we have a LOT of ground to cover.
To start our show, there's the Star Wars conversation. We're covering The Last Jedi with a ton of spoilers, and talking about the transitional elements of this movie, how the future of the Skywalker franchise looks, and what we think about this whole "Anthology" set of prequels. If Solo's teasers are any indication, the future isn't so bright for them.
Then we jump into the latter half of Netflix's lineup of Marvel shows in 2017. After knockout hits in Luke Cage and Daredevil, we're faced with the Sophomore Slump of Iron Fist and the mediocre Defenders. We've got lots to say.
And what about Spider-Man Homecoming? Is it one of the best things to come out of the Sony email hack, or is Michael Keaton still just Birdman? Do we finally have a definitive web slinger, and is Tom Holland the right guy?
After that, we're hitting Thor Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy 2. A quick taste change in Marvel movies following last year's Civil War
But then we get to the juicy bits... Black Panther. This utterly stellar Marvel movie isn't just great superhero cinema... it's just a perfect movie on its own. We talk about its impact on the MCU, how it affects Parris, and what this movie means in our current social and political structures. Serious talk? You bet. But it's beautiful, just like the movie that inspires it.
.... oh crap, DC did a bunch of stuff too. We should talk about that just for the sake of posterity, so join us near the end as we cover Justice League. Believe it or not, Jay liked it!
The road ahead looks good too. Infinity War is just around the corner, Deadpool 2 is mere weeks afterwards.... the future is bright indeed.
And speaking of the road ahead, be sure and join us for the final minutes of the podcast. We're talking about what's next for Remember When, and you might be surprised at some of the cool stuff we have in store for you.
It's been a while. Life happened while we were gone. But we're back, and we're happy to be here. Thanks for having us on your podcast playlist.
