lego-batman-supermanA truly excessive episode of Excessive Fantasy Violence, incorporating all our various offcuts from the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice discussion! Yes, Lego Batman is involved! You’re right, Alastair did just compare the movie to religious indoctrination! Plus Nick questions DC’s very grip on their own properties.

Listen to the whole episode, including half an hour of Batman V Superman chat and Daredevil too, by clicking here!

Luke Cage!Snipped from the end of our Daredevil season 2 segment, a little chat about the upcoming Marvel Defenders team-up series featuring DD, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. (And possibly the Punisher too.) Do we think it’ll be good? What is our big idea for how they’ll bring them together?

If you like this tiny bit, you can try the entire hour-long podcast it was taken from here.

GRUMPERMANOur first deleted scene from the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice chat is our discussion of the final section of the film. This includes the very last plot event – if you’ve seen the movie, you know the one we mean. If you haven’t, be warned before you listen: massive spoiler. Also features Alastair getting quite angry on behalf of Sir Christopher Wren.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of JusticeAfter last week’s superhero-free effort, it’s time for the opposite! Nick and Alastair have seen Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and one of them disliked it more than the other! Find out which is which at the 3:03 mark (plus the repeated futility of Doomsday and what Nick has in common with Wonder Woman), then witness our discussion of Daredevil season 2 at 32:10 (plus the weakness of the Kingpin and exactly when it’s time for the plebs).

We finally move away from capes in our climactic recommendation section at 53:05, with Nick watching Ari Folman’s sad animated documentary Waltz With Bashir at Alastair’s behest. But don’t worry, superpeople might make a last-minute comeback.

NoahIn yet another cut from our discussion of lost film genres, we wonder at the current small comeback the religious epic is enjoying. Yes, a short chat about Noah, just in time for Easter. (Also Exodus and Gods of Egypt.)

GLEE!While discussing the failure of the musical genre to keep dominating Hollywood, Nick and Alastair slide into a tangential discussion of Glee, the “jukebox musical” and some other briefly-successful 2000s TV shows. But hey, at least they know they’re off-topic.

Tom Hiddleston in High RiseA small bit cut from our review of Tom Hiddleston and Ben Wheatley’s High Rise film, in which Nick and Alastair discuss the plot in a shade more detail. Still not extreme spoilers but some mention of specific elements and moments.

high-riseIt’s time for a no-superheroes episode! Eschewing all cultural trends, Nick and Alastair take a look at social satire movie High Rise at the 1:32 point (plus the difficulty of adapting books and vertical living returning to London), new podcast Alice Isn’t Dead at 18:29 (plus methods of audio advertising and whether this very show has a secret purpose) and the latest Coen brothers comedy Hail, Ceasar! at 33:04 (plus the life and death of old movie genres).

Lastly, in our stubbornly unnamed recommendations feature at 46:27, Alastair reads his first comic in years: The Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman & Nick Pitarra. Is this the beginning of a deep love for graphic storytelling as a medium? Or is it… The End?

constantineCut from the R-rated superhero movie discussion in Moderate Fantasy Violence #2, Nick and Alastair discuss whether John Constantine (whose name we regularly mispronounce) is the ideal candidate for this trend.
