As you may has noticed there hasn’t been a podcast since last week’s Avengers cast.
This is because a) we’re still reeling from that cinematic onslaught & b) Gavin’s been busy “shaping and directing” this year’s The Platform production The Emperor at the KL Performing Arts Centre. Full details here but if you wanna catch it you’ll have to hurry, shows finish 12th May!
Once again we’ll try and get back to a regular status once Gavin stops being so damn popular, or my dastardly plans come to fruition. What plans? That would be telling…
The road that began years or decades ago when you first heard of or read your first Avengers comic, or that began for us in Summer 2010 when we first saw Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assembled on stage at San Diego Comic Con, ends this week with the release of Marvel’s The Avengers in cinemas across the world (everywhere that is except America this week for some reason).
As you can guess Gavin and I “go deep” on our review in this week’s cast but for the cautious we do avoid spoilers until the 45th minute of the cast, and we very clearly state this, so you can’t blame anyone but yourself if you hear too much.
This weeks’s show also has a very quick, non-spoilery review of The Cabin in the Woods and some of the usual news for which the show notes are below, Enjoy!
- Fresh off the internet presses, it’s the third and final Dark Knight Rises trailer
