Spider-Man 2 vs. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Review Show 100

It’s episode 100! We tried a new and special format for this episode. We challenged ourselves to a debate about one of our favorite story genres and asked, what is the best superhero movie? Kyle’s champion: The Russo Brothers’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Melissa’s champion: Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Two humble New York boys face off! We discuss the strengths and flaws of both movies, how they fit into the larger superhero movie canon, and how they make us feel like we could be heroes. Thanks for coming along with us on this podcast journey these past two years!

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!
