In this issue, 9 films are announced for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’d tell you about them if we could stop squeeing for 5 minutes. ALSO Ri¢hie Ri¢h is coming to television. In this version he makes $1 trillion by inventing and selling a cool new green technology. Conservatives are already calling him a sell-out. THEN it’s Rasputin, Deathlok, Saga, Big Hero 6 and all of the TV in What We’ve Been Watching and Reading.
PLUS our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week: Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell, an original DC Comics graphic novel by Paul Dini and Joe Quinones. This is Behind the Panels.
Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay and Dave Longo
