Another week, another edition of The Fanboy Podcast, where Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles sounds off on the latest big topics, trends, and concerns in geek fandom. In Episode 90, he addresses where things are at with both Captain Marvels, as Marvel's Brie Larson-starrer opens everywhere today, and as the social media embargo on Shazam! gets lifted notably early- opening the floodgates for all kinds of love for David F. Sandberg's film.

Other topics covered:

  • James Gunn
  • The Suicide Squad
  • In Hamada We Trust?
  • Geoff Johns
  • Superman

And more! Enjoy.

On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles opens up by doing something few seem willing to do these last few years: Give Warner Bros credit for the way they've handled their biggest IPs. You'll want to hear why MFR thinks they've attempted to be at the cutting edge of blockbuster filmmaking, and why that needs to be celebrated (even if the current pop culture landscape is teaching them an important lesson right now).

From there, he dives into the latest updates and rumors on projects like The Flash, The Batman, and The Suicide Squad.

This brings him into a rant on James Gunn's firing by Disney, and the way the Mouse House will live to regret that knee-jerk reaction, and this gives way to chatter about Fox, Marvel, and the X-Men. Why? Because we got a new Dark Phoenix trailer this week and MFR has lots to say about the entire way people are approaching this film right now.

And much, much more.

Earlier this week, The Fanboy Podcast host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles came out swinging for the fences, believing to have snagged the most coveted casting scoop in the geek culture. He thought he'd finally answered the question everyone's been asking for quite some time: Who's Going To Play The Dark Knight In Matt Reeves' The Batman? He thought he'd found his man (and he still does). But that was just the beginning of the story. Get the lowdown on a crazy week!

On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcast, MFR opens with thoughts on Affleck making it official (for the second time) that he's done as Batman. From there, he turns his sights onto Matt Reeves and what will become the new Batman of the DC universe, and makes sure you understand why Affleck didn't end up sticking around for this next Bat film. Hint: Reeves is not the villain here.

He also offers his latest on the type of actor Reeves is said to be looking for.

From there, he addresses some of the interesting things that have popped up this week for the World of Superman- and how that fits into the Worlds of DC that the studio is trying to launch and cultivate with several rumored projects.

Then he opens things up to you guys to ask questions, and you asked some whoppers.

Thanks to the show's listeners, MFR discusses:

  • Momoa's mysterious meetings this week
  • Snyder Cut
  • Batgirl
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • The Suicide Squad
  • James Wan's next DC Film
  • Shazam!
  • The next Superman film

And more.

Enjoy!

On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles talks about a week of Superman rumblings that began with a Henry Cavill Instagram on Sunday and hit its zenith with news of a surprising cameo on Thursday. MFR is here to break all that down for you and give you the full context on what it all means.

From there, he turns his attention back to last week's list of rumored candidates to inherit the Batman cowl from Ben Affleck. It's time to start eliminating a few of those names, and he'll tell you why.

Then he shares an ongoing experience he's been having that's made him appreciate the Marvel Cinematic Universe more than he has in quite a while.

On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles discusses this week's insanely seismic amount of DC news.

On this week's show, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles breaks down what kinds of scoops he considers Newsworthy as opposed to Noiseworthy, explains what kinds of exclusives you can look forward to from him and the site from now on, and then he offers an exhaustive breakdown of DC's Shared Universe after a couple of weeks of confusing headlines- Is it scrapped? Is it thriving? What's the deal? How did we get here? MFR's got the breakdown you need in order to understand it all.

On this week's edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles opens with some thoughts on the fun little nuggets has left us fans to enjoy as we turn the page on 2018 and look forward to a new year. From there, he touches on some insights he's received regarding how Matt Reeves is treating The Batman and what his plans for the Caped Crusader seem to be. Then things get real fun, because MFR knows he's no expert on The CW's Arrowverse, yet he finally dabbled in the DCTV universe by binging both Crisis on Earth-X and Elseworlds, so he's brought an expert DCTV panel to discuss it all with.

This week's Revenger Roundtable consists of:

Aaron Virola, of the The Fanboy Garage

Adam Basciano, of Multiverse Musings: A DC Comics Podcast

Matt Vernier, Lead Reporter and Associate Editor here at Revenge of The Fans

Brandon Alvarado, Columnist, Conspiracy Theorist, and RTF's resident The Flash super-fan

Katie Gilstrap, of the Wobam Entertainment Podcast

The crew has a great time reviewing Elseworldssounding off on the potential new series for Batwoman (and maybe Superman?!), and get into some wide-eyed theories about where the Arrowverse is heading next when it tackles Crisis on Infinite Earths next year.

On this week's edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host and Editor-in-Chief of Revenge of The Fans Mario-Francisco Robles sounds off on all of the biggest news affecting geekdom. From the sudden cancellation of Daredevil, to murmurs of big surprises on the way from both Marvel and DC, as well as the exciting projections for Aquaman, and an in-depth chat about Creed II, there's a lot of ground to cover.

But one special element MFR brings into play for this episode is the inclusion of his father, Jeff Robles. His pop is the biggest fan of Rocky Balboa (the character, the films, and the mythology) that he knows, and with the release of Creed II, he thought he'd bring him on to talk about what the series has meant to his life (and indirectly to MFR's own) since it began.
