Iron Man doing a poo in the sea.

Iron Man doing a poo in the sea.

We’re back! Sorry for the increasing delay between episodes. I’ve been asked to do 3 hours instead of 2 for the RJ Bayley Rock Show on 98.8 Castle FM in Edinburgh (7 – 10PM, listen online here) as well as preparing to do a live music night. That’ll be Monthly Metal, every month some live metal, broadcast on 98.8 Castle FM, at the Banshee Labyrinth in Edinburgh, or, if you’re American, Edinborrow. Next one is 29th of Feb folks, come along, say hello, don’t bellow obscenities down the microphone every two minutes making the audio unusable for broadcast.

On the note of music, (“note“!) there’s 10 minutes of our kazoo version of the Iron Man song by Black Sabbath at the start of this podcast. I said I’d loop it for 10 minutes at the start, so I did. Don’t skip it. That’s art.

Thanks for sticking with us.

Captain America: is he a giant?

Assemble round your speakers friends, we’ve reached the end of phase one of the Marvel Screen Universe, and the end of an era, really. Film writer Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine, and myself, film critic and radio host, RJ Bayley have arrived at the film our childhood selves never thought we’d live to see: Avengers Assemble: Not to be Confused with The Avengers Starring Patrick Macnee.

We discuss the spoilerific menu screen of the Blu-ray, how many times we saw it, why the characters keep taking their hats off and the stunning visuals of the movie, among other things!

Niall “before Zod” Heseltine and RJ Bayley take an unsteady step into the second Marvel Screen Universe outing, The Incredible Hulk. We discuss Marvel’s early unease at distancing themselves from the Ang Lee film Hulk, who is the most handsome of men, and I drink so many fizzy drinks I set a podcast record for belching and feel very sick by the end. So if you’re playing the now omnipresent Goats In The Machine Gaseous Expulsion Drinking Game then boy are you going to be wasted by the end of this show!

A mere 10 films in and we finally made it. We’ve finally arrived at the first film in what known back then as a Marvel Cinematic Universe (now better described as the Marvel Screen Universe). In this episode we remind ourselves of just how good the original really was, and I come up with a super-theory of just why Tony Stark is so bleeding intelligent.

WHAT?! WHOOOOAH, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM??

This wasn’t on the list? Was it? Was it?? No. It wasn’t. But when the list was made we didn’t know that Daredevil, the man without fear, would be joining his other superhero chums in the Marvel Screen Universe (I’m going to start using this term now due to all the TV projects).  However, now it’s been formally announced that Matt Murdock will return in a Netflix series, so we thought it only appropriate to spin back to 2003 to look at Hornhead when the idea of a shared screen universe was only the fevered dreams of fanboys everywhere.

Before you listen to this, I’d like you to bear in mind that for Niall and my last podcast in this series, I was awarded “Podcast Quote of 2014 by internet superhero mogul, Eyes Skyward.

I think I was taking Batman Forever as seriously as Joel Schumacher was taking the Batman franchise during the making of this podcast. To be fair to myself, and to a lesser extent Niall (but only because he was drunk to a lesser extent than me) needed an awful lot of alcohol to get through this movie.

What’s with all this post-death costume business? I hope its something he symbolically ditches after he teaches S.H.I.E.L.D. a lesson, which he clearly will.
