This week we watched both Deadpool movies and discussed how these R-rated meta action-comedies could find a place in the MCU. Wade Wilson is a skilled mercenary who is diagnosed with cancer, and turns to an experimental medical procedure. This experiment brings out his mutant healing ability, at the cost of terrible physical disfigurement. He hides himself behind a mask and becomes the vigilante Deadpool, hunting down the scientists who put him through this experiment. He teams up with some X-Men, finds and loses the love of his life, saves mutant children from a cruel orphanage, and travels through time, all while delivering snarky narration.
The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums — movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas — picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
