On this week's edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles talks about the newest arrival to the DC Universe streaming service: Titans. He's seen the first episode, and he's got thoughts (shocking!). From there, he talks about Venom, the way a "fun" tone can improve a shaky movie, how Justice League doomed Superman...and maybe why that's okay? From there, he sounds off on James Gunn joining the cinematic DC Universe with Suicide Squad and what the folks decrying Gunn need to consider. 

On this week's stacked edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles walks you through the latest updates on everything from the buzz (and *NEW TRAILER*) for Aquaman, the new intel we've been given about Jon Favreau's Star Wars series The Mandalorian, some concerns for The Flash, how the critical response to Venom highlights a disturbing trend, the latest on whether we should believe that Ben Affleck is preparing to return as Batman, what a new Superman movie should look like, A Star Is Born shining a light on an oft-ignored commodity: Acting, and more!

This week, on the 74th Edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles is delighted to bring on Mark O'Connell- the author behind the great new book WATCHING SKIES: STAR WARS, SPIELBERG, AND US. Together, they do a deep-dive on the state of fandom, and how it's evolved since the great geek boom of the 1970s- when pop culture, and the WORLD, first became obsessed with Star Wars, Superman, and creators like George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner, Robert Zemeckis, and more. O'Connell has a uniquely personal perspective, since he's a fan of the current entertainment landscape, yet was there when Jaws and other films changed Hollywood and pop culture forever.

They touch on many of the issues MFR has been bringing up for a while now, be it the harassment of artists and creators by entitled fans, to the overwhelming amount of content out there and the pros and cons that's had for the industry and for fans, to fun stuff like what's going on with the James Bond franchise and- of course- some time is spent talking about Henry Cavill and Superman's cinematic future. 

Along the way, in segments before and after the conversation with Mr. O'Connell, MFR also shares with you his hopes and concerns for Venom, sheds light on the upcoming Revenger Watch Party for Halloween, and cautions you about not over-using The Escape Valve.

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. With the chaos that took place with the nasty negotiations between Warner Bros. and Henry Cavill's camp (spearheaded by Dany Garcia) spilling over into the public arena, fans of the Last Son of Krypton have had some harsh realities to confront and MFR is here to talk you through it all.

Beyond that, he takes time to answer listener questions, and to share with you what a monumental week it's been for Revenge of The Fans and this beautiful community we're all building together.

On this week's edition of The Fanboy Podcast, host Mario-Francisco Robles shares the latest whispers he's hearing about casting for Matt Reeves' The Batman, some dirt he's heard on the deal between Henry Cavill and Warner Bros. for him to continue as Superman, potential The Flash news, and his thoughts on both Captain Marvel and the latest Halloween trailer.

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!
