The Superhero Show Show #367

Justice League vs Falcon and the Winter Soldier

 

It’s a showdown between the Big Two’s newest entries with Zach Snyder’s Justice League taking on Falcon and the Winter Soldier!

On a very special episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boys have one of their most jam-packed podcasts yet! First off, they are tackling the first two chapters of Zack Snyder’s Justice League! Not tremendous fans of the Whedon cut, they try to keep an open mind and an open heart for this first installment in a series of four.

Then, Marvel is back! This week saw the premiere of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney Plus. They’ll discuss the first episode, and comment on the frequent refrain that it’s a little too vanilla, and a little too plotless.

Then, the Taste Budz give updates on every other show based on a comic that came out this week, including RESIDENT ALIEN, WYNONNA EARP, RIVERDALE, BATWOMAN, THE FLASH, SUPERMAN AND LOIS, BLACK LIGHTNING, SNOWPIERCER, THE WALKING DEAD, and PENNYWORTH!
