Okay, look: it’s Joker. Whatever we say about it is going to annoy somebody somewhere, right? But Seb and Caroline are joined by some bloke called Joe who apparently used to do a podcast, or something, to talk about Todd Phillips’ divisive, controversial, and possibly actually surprisingly a bit boring “not a comic book movie” comic book movie.
Regular listeners will know that we don’t ordinarily do a news section on new releases, in favour of a spoiler-free thoughts section; however, we had a lot to catch up on that we wanted to talk about, including the happy ending of the Spidey/MCU saga, the new Birds of Prey trailer, and that Brandon Routh costume in the Crisis crossover. So we take a spin through all of that, and then a brief tease of our opinions before we get into the spoilery stuff.
