Podcast - Epsiode 23: CIVIL WAR TRAILER (And Dark Knight III) with J.Bone!!!


So, last week when I was writing this blog post I was forcing myself to stay awake to watch Kimmel because there was a rumour that the first Civil War trailer was going to be shown. Turns it totally DID get shown! And I have watched it a bazillion times since!

So obviously we had to shift focus for this episode from being all about Dark Knight III to being a little bit about Dark Knight III and whole lot about the Civil War trailer. AND obviously we had to invite J.Bone to come back on the show to gush with us about this trailer.

Guys, the trailer is SO GOOD. Have you WATCHED IT?! Here it is:

Here is the Charlie Murphy/Civil War mash-up that Dave can't stop watching. It's pretty great.

And here's that very funny 'I remember your mom' thing someone on Tumblr made:

Here's that Joe Russo quote about the helicopter scene we get a glimpse of in the trailer:

He’s hanging onto that helicopter for an extremely passionate reason. In stories you’ll read where a mother will lift a car off a child. There’s something very important happening in that scene and for us it really represented his struggle as a character, one man pitted against a helicopter that’s trying to take off. Can he stop it? And what are the limits of his strength? For us, it’s one of the most powerful shots in the movie and it’s Chris Evans, who works very hard to physically exemplify this character. On set, we had him straining against a crane holding this helicopter, and you have this fantastic shot of his muscles bulging and you can feel the pain and the energy and the determination as he tries to stop this thing.

Oh. Em. Gee.

So is Bucky saying Steve's dead here? You decide:

I don't know and I'm a little too distracted by how great his teeth look to figure it out. Hydra has a great dental plan!

J and I couldn't see each other while we were recording, but if we could we probably would have been giving each other this look when Dave was expressing concern about this Captain America sequel being rushed:

Shame on you, Dave. Shame on you.

Here is Faith Erin Hicks' Stucky art. I love watching people join the Stucky train. ALL ABOARD!

And here is that VERY IMPORTANT 2009 Hayden Panettiere video starring Sebastian Stan:

I just want to thank J again for coming on the show. It's always a pleasure talking to him, especially with actual voices instead of typing. And, look, I know that 254 messages sounds like a lot in one evening, but let me be clear that they were part of a conversation and not, like, me sending 254 unanswered messages. Because that would be CRAZY. And, it's not my fault that Sebastian Stan has lips that need to be talked about.

Seriously, recording this was a great time. I love doing this podcast!
