Another week, another Superman movie. Last week, we dissected Man of Steel in anticipation for this week’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Directed by Zack Snyder, starring Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. Since its release, there has been a really negative reaction from critics, but Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan aren’t afraid to go against the grain if it warrants it. Did Zack Snyder make a movie for the fans? Or is that just a convenient way for critical response to be ignored? Can we declare Sad Affleck as the best meme of 2016, yet?
First we open with the bummer of Togetherness Season 2 being cancelled, but after that point, its Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice-related news and what came out this week on Blu-ray. That includes Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and Criterion’s Blu-ray release of Bicycle Thieves. Then listen to a really long discussion about Batman v Superman and what we thought about the blockbuster. We also slightly talk about an article from Mashable’s Josh Dickey.
