Podcorn Podcast triumphantly returns as its co-hosts continue to ride the illness merry-go-round! This week, we’re talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the year’s first superhero blockbuster and DC’s tentpole film for their cinematic universe.
The movie has opened to some less than glowing reviews, but is it as messy as people have talked it up to be? Are there bright spots in the shades of black and brown? How do Jesse Eisenberg and Gal Gadot fare in their roles? All this and more on this week’s Podcorn Podcast, featuring special guest host Amy Reeder!

18:15 — What is truly wrong with Batman v Superman, according to Brandon, and the fallout from it!
28:45 — This was a loooooong movie that might be “better than the sum of its parts”

Every Wednesday, I talk about comics with Brandon Montclare, writer of the hit Image series Rocket Girl and co-writer of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series.
We gab about what we’re reading now, what books we consider classics (Brandon loves Dark Knight Strikes Again…), and the hottest gossip of the industry. Occasionally, the inimitable artist Amy Reeder (Rocket Girl, Batwoman) stops by. Check out our full show archive at podcornpodcast.com.
Intro/Outro music this week is Men are Still Good from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice soundtrack, composed by Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL.
