This week, Jerome and Brian are back for the first ever film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man. Coming out in 2008, this is where it all began. In the same summer as The Dark Knight, witness how Marvel stumbled onto an entire universe just by including one post-credit sequence. Hear the discussion about Robert Downey's journey toward an iconic role and performance. Listen as the duo discuss the underatedness of Gwyneth Paltrow's performance.

Back in the first year of the century, Marvel has arguably had one decent movie, and that was 1998's Blade. Then it all changed when 20th Century Fox brought in the best of the past, present, and future of superhero films. Flashback to Hugh Jackman's first time as Wolverine and a whole lot of blue and gray. Try and figure out Halle Berry's accent. Listen as Jerome and Brian discuss this film and branch off into other conversations dealing with the franchise and certain comic book films in general. Don't be like what Wolverine calls Cyclops toward the end of this film. Give this podcast episode a listen.

There is no superhero film that has generated more conversation than the 1989 Batman film. From the time Michael Keaton was cast to what the ultimate legacy actually is, this film is a mixed bag. Jerome and Brian break down the good and bad. They emphasize the intelligence of Jack Nicholson and downplay Michael Keaton's performance as the man behind the caped cowl. Get ready to crash through the glass and show off where you got this wonderful podcast.

Chris and Rich begin 2018 with a helluva show. Lots of topics to discuss include the firing of Brad Stutts from CWF Mid Atlantic. A ROH Champion not signed to contract (AGAIN!?!). Reactions to the big NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12 and New Year's Bash shows and some big angles that have come out from both.

Jerome and Brian fly back around the earth 40 years (but thankfully choose not to change history) to discuss the first modern superhero film, Superman. They discuss how some familiar patterns and tropes of the superhero genre start right from the first scene. They discuss how the producers established credibility with a notable screenwriter and one of the most iconic actors in film history. Christopher Reeve is assessed as the first (and perhaps) version of the character. This is not a bird or plane, but could this film be considered strong enough for the Superhero Pantheon?
