LEAGUECAST #88 – D23 Expo MARVEL STUDIOS & STAR WARS Recap

0

This week on the show, Adam is away, so Jeff and Shawn welcome the League of Extraordinary fill-in co-hosts – Marc Lapierre and Jared Skolnick! The guys bid a teary farewell to Yvonne Craig, who portrayed Batgirl on the 1960s Batman TV show, and passed away at the age of 78 after a long battle with breast cancer. Then the League tackles all the exciting Marvel Studios and Star Wars news that came out of Disney’s recent D23 Expo, which includes The Force Awakens, Rogue One, Doctor Strange, and Captain America: Civil War! All this, plus Marc makes fun of Mads Mikkelsen and Forest Whitaker’s eyes, the guys dogpile Jeff for daring to critique Drew Struzan’s choice of photo reference for the new Star Wars poster, more Battle Beyond The Stars references, a happy announcement for Shawn, and the usual plugs and recommendations!

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
