Doctor Strange Wraps Principle Photography
Doctor Strange wrapped principal photography in the streets of New York in front of a number of lucky bystanders who witnessed the Marvel crew on the streets and in the comic book stores! The Sorcerer Supreme is finally coming to theaters this November and now, the world has seen Benedict Cumberbatch, Chewerol Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelson skip around in full costume. The images caught are discussed at length by the panel with most everyone loving the way Dr. Strange/Cumberbatch looks! And with these images everyone wonders: who is Mads character going to be? On this topic, the panel goes all in, discussing all the possibilities about his potential character and what they believe the story will follow from the comics.
The Killing Joke Animated Feature
Another story getting everyone excited is DC Animation’s The Killing Joke film, which brings Joker favorite Mark Hamill back to voice. New images hit the web this week with everyone commenting on how much they are enjoying the animation. Based on the comic of the same name, one of the most popular, the panel speculates on whether or not it will be another home run for the DC Animation arm of the studio.
Captain America: Civil War TV Spots
A whole bunch of new TV spots and featurettes have been released for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Now that Batman v Superman has come to theatres, the panel readies themselves for the marketing campaign by Disney to kick into high gear. Everyone wonders how much time will be devoted to Spider-Man compared to some of the other characters namely, Black Panther; who also is using Civil War for the launch of his live action character.
The Batman Solo Film
In a report from THR, Ben Affleck’s agent revealed that Affleck has, in fact, written a solo Batman script! The Oscar winning screenwriter adds his expertise to the newest iteration of Batman’s story and everyone agrees, they want a solo Batman movie written and directed by Ben Affleck. Now, they all have to wait and see if this film will get a greenlight, so soon after Batman v Superman. If the critical reactions to BvS are any indication, the panel believes we might actually get the movie sooner rather than later. But what does that mean for Justice League Part One?
Man of Steel Sequel Discussion
And now, a SPOILER ALERT. News came out about Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill talking about a Man of Steel sequel, hoping to make it happen after they see how Batman v Superman does in theatres. With this news, Schnepp and the panel go deep into spoiler territory with Batman v Superman to set the stage. Be ye’ warned!

Flashback – The Avengers (2012)
One of the film’s Schnepp never thought he’d see in his lifetime happened in 2012, and it was called The Avengers. This film was based off the modern Marvel re-telling called The Ultimates; which united the four individual characters that Marvel had done solo films for – together for the first time. This movie was a blockbuster hit, grounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe and opening the doors to more and more superhero films than ever before.
Spotlight: Moon Knight
This week’s spotlight shines on a Marvel Character called Moon Knight. Marc Spector gains the powers of the Egyptian god Khonshu and fights crime as a combo of Batman, Blue Beetle and Daredevil. This character has gone through many incarnations and has joined The Defenders over the years along with his own series. Could Moon Knight make a good television series or feature film?
