On this week's edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles discusses the latest update on Birds of Prey, the Captain Marvel trailer that arrived on Tuesday, and the question of whether or not audiences have simply fallen out of love with Superman.

From there, he discusses what makes fandom so special and how each of us has more power than we realize and are more special than we give ourselves credit for. Things get personal and deep, as they often do, but it all ties into the impact that the new film Life Itselhad on him earlier this week and what it made him realize about the way passionate fans intake art, and how art can reveal so much about what makes us tick.


On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles does an extremely passionate deep-dive on the trials and tribulations he and his fellow Superman fans had to endure this week.

But before that conversation, MFR catches you on all of the Marvel and DC analysis you need right now. From dissecting an aspect of the "Disney v James Gunn" controversy that too few are talking about, to revealing a decision the Mouse House is made that is sure to cause quite a stir, he explains the strange dichotomy of what's going on over there.

From there, MFR shares what he's heard from some people who have actually watched Aquaman! Find out what they're saying (and what they're comparing it to!), and while on the topic of DC he also shares some new insight into the Henry Cavill/Superman situation, and when we should expect some casting news about Birds of Prey and The Batman

MFR then shifts gear and shares some new insights he's been given into the parameters of Marvel's deal with Sony and what it means for Spider-Man, the MCU, and those Spidey Spin-Offs they've got on the way, like Venom, Silver and Black, abd Morbius.

That leads into a discussion about the importance of these seemingly trivial superhero movies.

From there, he turns his attention towards all of the bananas stuff coming out of Sony lately.

One thing's for certain: With VenomSpider-Man: Into The Spider-VerseMorbius (!!!), Silver & Black, and seemingly more on the way...Sony's Marvel efforts aren't going anywhere (and that may have been their plan all along). 

Find out why it's a Win-Win for Sony, and a Win-Lose for Disney.

Then The Fanboy shifts its focus over to The Batman, the streaming DC Universe service, and some recent comments from Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Feige about how DC should use Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie as its touchstone moving forward.
