Phantom Troublemaker, Ryan Cadaver, and the Award-Winning Bobby Nash once again gather in the Phantom Zone, this time to discuss Spider-Man: Homecoming!

The newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that for years seemed impossible – a movie starring Peter Parker, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! Thanks to fan demand and probably more than a little corporate greed, Sony and Disney got on the same page and decided to share Marvel Comics' best-known and most profitable character.

Did they pull it off? Is the MCU Spidey the best Spidey? Where does this new film fit in to the grand scheme of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Listen in as Phantom, Bobby, and Ryan discuss the history of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in comics, TV, and movies!

Needless Things Podcast 161 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

May 18th, 2017
NT%2B161%2Bpic.jpg


In the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast Phantom Troublemaker, Beth V, Head of Research Ryan, and the Rad Ranger break down the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster!

 
James Gunn changed the game with Guardians of the Galaxy. He took the tone and ideals that had been established with the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a galaxy not-so-far away and thrust a group of unique and compelling characters into classic situations. It was a risky move to take characters that the general public hadn’t heard of and create a franchise around them, but much like Jon Favreau before him, Gunn pulled it off with style and skill. The first Guardians was a massive success.
 
Having earned the fans’ (and, perhaps more importantly, Disney’s) trust, James Gunn was given the ability to continue the story he sowed the seeds for in the first movie. The musically named Vol. 2 continues to develop the characters and the galaxy that Gunn introduced us to in 2014 while opening up the possibilities for more stories in this far-flung part of the Marvel Universe.
 
Listen in as Phantom, Beth, Ryan, and Rad Ranger discuss the highs and lows of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Needless Things Podcast 56 – Avengers: Age of Ultron

May 8th, 2015
NT%2B56%2Bpic.jpg
Last weekend Marvel Studios released the newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Naturally a few of the Needless Things Irregulars had to convene to talk about it.
This episode wasn’t planned, but after an onslaught of text messages it was decided that a group conversation had to happen. Age of Ultron was simply too big and too packed with story and action to cover one line of text at a time. Grossing over $640 million as of this writing, the movie has once again shown that Marvel has the public’s attention and knows how to deliver big thrills on a massive scale.
Join Phantom Troublemaker, Ryan Schweck, Beth V, and The Belligerent Monkey Jay Hornsby as they discuss one of the biggest superhero movies of all time and each rank it among the rest of the MCU films.
