As we put it at the end of every episode of the GoodTrash Genrecast, film is more than 90 minutes of popcorn and we value the discourse that comes from the conversation following each and every trip to the movies. After hearing our Back to the Movies review, DC comic book enthusiast and founder of the 1988 project, Shawn Curtis reached out to defend the movie and argue the merits of Batman vs Superman against the critics.
Caleb sits down and talks to Shawn a little bit about his history with the characters before things heat up and the two discuss stand alone films vs multimedia driven universes, Batman’s history using weapons to kill, Darkseid’s impending arrival in the DCCU, and Ben Affleck’s success as the dark knight. It’s a conversation loaded with comic book history and tidbits die hard fans won’t want to miss.
Chances are, you’ve already seen Batman vs Superman and we want to know what you think! Sound off in the comments below and we’ll keep this unusually spirited conversation going.
