From there, he invites on his co-hosts from The Revengers Podcast, Brett Miro and Vanessa Bontea, for a spirited (and NSFW) discussion about the state of cinema in the age of mass consumer entertainment.


On the 70th Edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles is at his most fiery as he discusses what happened this week with regard to Alec Baldwin and the Joker movie, the latest rumor about Warner Bros. doubling down on their offer to Lady Gaga for Birds of Prey, and as he answers a number of great questions from listeners.


On the 69th Edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles goes one on one with Mark Waid. They do a deep dive on their mutual love of Superman, what he's meant to them, what they think he needs to mean to the world, and where he's at today in the movies. 

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

He also announces who his next guest will be!


On this week's episode of The Fanboy Podcasthost and Revenge of The Fans editor-in-chief Mario-Francisco Robles tackles yesterday's big Batman developments, fields a host of listener questions, and wraps things up with an epic Star Wars chat alongside the other two members of his Jedi Council (The Batman-On-Film Podcast host Rick Shew, and The Fanboy Garage's Aaron Virola!).


On this week's Episode 67 of The Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles sounds off on the state of the cinematic DC Universe and the seemingly endless wait for good Superman news (and for a viable, thriving Superman movie franchise).


After an unexpected hiatus, The Fanboy Podcast returns with its 66th episode! Host, and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief, Mario-Francisco Robles opens the sure with his closing statements on yesterday's big Wall Street Journal feature on the Snyder Cut of Justice League. From there, he talks about Henry Cavill and the state of his negotiations with Warner Bros. over his future as Superman. Next on the docket are all of the different little happenings and whispers are Batman-centric films like The Batman, Joker, and the various Harley Quinn films on the horizon. 

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. Find out the corner Disney/Marvel backed itself into with this deal, and why Sony has the potential to laugh all the way to the bank while the Mouse House has plenty to lose.

Next on the agenda for this week's The Fanboy Podcast are MFR's thoughts on the first trailer for Titans, the new series expected to launch alongside the release of the DC Universe streaming service.

Finally, he wraps up by answering a listener question about Suicide Squad 2.


On the 65th edition of The Fanboy Podcast (formerly the El Fanboy Podcast) host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-In-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles discusses several important topics. He opens with an explanation for the show's revised name and where he hopes to take the podcast moving forward, but then segues into some revised thoughts and insights that came to him on his second rewatch of Justice League.

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. From their ambitious SDCC plans, to the way they seem to be doubling down on their expanded Spider-Verse, and what he thinks it all means. 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.


On this action-packed 50 minute edition of the El Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles takes us on a ride through the latest DC gossip he's been hearing through back-channels.

A lot of ground is covered here, in Episode 64 of El Fanboy, so it's time to dive right on in.


On the 63rd edition of the El Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles discusses this week's tidal wave of DC Entertainment news. From Geoff Johns' role within the studio evolving, to the latest updates and rumors about Green Lantern Corps and The Batman, to the promotional campaigns for Aquaman and Wonder Woman 1984 beginning in the last few days, there's a ton of ground to cover.

And he's not alone, shortly after an introduction where MFR discusses the importance of James Wan's Aquaman to the DCU film franchise based on some insider chatter he's heard about, he brings on Justin Shanlian of the Shanlian on Batman Podcast to help him unpack all of this week's crazy DC chatter.

On this week's episode of the El Fanboy Podcast, host and Revenge of The Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles talks about the latest rumblings coming out of geekdom, sharing his insights and takes on what's going on. The big story earlier this week was that Penguin may be the main villain in The Batman and/or Birds of Prey. MFR takes a hard look at this information, discusses what he's heard, and what he thinks it all means. 

From there, he analyzes the latest writing on the wall that we won't be getting a Cyborg movie.

Up next on the docket is this news that Silver and Black is no longer on the Sony slate, having been pulled from its release date. MFR uses that news to give his two cents on what Sony and Marvel Studios need to do with the shared custody they have of the Spider-Man mythos.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is about to enter its second weekend and hopes are high (or low, depending on who you ask) about what it'll do at the box office. Beyond that, what does Solo mean for Kathleen Kennedy's legacy and her ability to effectively run Lucasfilm. With many fans calling for her head and trumpeting Solo's so-so performance as the main reason why, MFR weighs in on what the deal really is at this point.
