Amon Warmann has got a bone to pick with us, and that bone is the fact that we weren’t exactly very enthusiastic about his beloved Blade when we talked about it all the way back in 2015. So we’ve invited him on to tell us where we went wrong back then, as well as looking in-depth at Guillermo del Toro’s somewhat flashier (and gorier) follow-up.
In the news, meanwhile, we try not to run too headlong into The Discourse, but we do find ourselves picking up on that Joker sequel talk, that JSA-in-Black Adam talk, confirmation of Ant-Man 3, and some other bits besides. And no, the Black Widow trailer hadn’t landed when we recorded this, but we knew that going in.
