First off, thanks to everyone who came down for the Podcast 250 Podquiz celebrations – we really do appreciate the support, and hope you all had as good a time as we did.
As for this week’s show, we’re joined by Chris Carle – head honcho at IGN’s LA office and star of movie podcast Keeping It Reel.
Carlito joins Krupa and Chris to pull apart the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, speculating about who Andy Serkis might play in the flick and what that could mean for the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large.
Marvel fans have been waiting months for the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron to surface. That finally happened when Marvel released the first trailer a week ahead of its originally planned debut after an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This trailer offers an intriguing first look at James Spader’s Ultron and a very troubled team of Avengers. But it also contains clues that even more Marvel characters will be appearing than have been announced.
Our Marvel experts have painstaking examined every moment of the trailer and explored its many secrets. Check out the full Rewind Theater above, and the original trailer below:
0:07 – Is this landscape shot showing South Africa? Will the South African scenes be a gateway to introducing Wakanda?
Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art you won’t see in actual comics. The reason you won’t is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even post step-by-step processes or arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.
That’s it for this week. Let us know which ones you really dug. If there are any comic artists with blogs or Tumblrs that we’re missing, let us know in the comments below. We’ll have more great comic art that won’t be seen in actual comics next time.
John Constantine leaves a trail of secrets in his wake and only we know what they really are. That’s why we’re here to tease you with all the #DCTV Secrets hiding in each episode. If you really want to know some of the answers to these questions, check out the spoiler section… and get to the point

It can’t rain all the time. After being caught in development hell for a number of years, The Crow reboot is set to start shooting next Spring.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at the Abu Dhabi FIlm Festival, producer Edward R. Pressman dropped the news regarding the remake of the 1994 horror/action film. Pressman, who also worked on the original film, is returning to produce the remake, which is being helmed by F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall).
Pressman goes on to call Eric Draven/The Crow “the anti Spider-Man.” The essence of angsty ’90s comic book characters, The Crow took inspiration from creator James O’Barr’s life — after his fiancee was tragically killed in a hit-and-run by a drunk driver.
With Warner Bros. announcing their schedule for 10 new DC Comics movies, there’s plenty to get excited about. For me, the one movie that not only shocked me but may or may not have made me tear up with joy was Green Lantern, hitting theaters in 2020. My initial reaction was pure surprise that WB would greenlight another Green Lantern movie after the first one flopped critically and commercially in 2011. But this is a new day for Green Lantern. Second chances are a rare thing, but now Green Lantern has one. Here’s how they can make the new one a winner.
Just to get this out of the way, I’m not hating on the 2011 Green Lantern movie. It was a bad movie any way you shake it, but instead of tearing it to pieces, I find it much more interesting to pull it apart to find out why it did so poorly. I’m on Green Lantern’s side and want to see the next movie do well.
Image Comics founders sure love teasing adaptations of their projects, even if they may not happen (For example: Rob Liefeld and his X-Force movie). Well, Todd McFarlane now proves that a new Spawn animated series of some sort is in the works, and he has three new images to prove it.
On his Facebook page, McFarlane told fans how he is always asked at conventions: “When is the new Spawn movie coming and when are we going to see more Animation like we did on HBO years ago?” The Venom creator then promptly posted three new images, which can be seen below:
If only the show was returning. But we won’t get into that. We can celebrate the show in glorious high-definition in November!
