The 42cast Episode 80: Splashdown

Aquaman_movie

After Justice League failed to make the money that Warner Bros had predicted a lot of pressure fell on Aquaman. With expectations high and a lackluster holiday blockbuster season, many moviegoers flocked to Aquaman and it became an instant success. In this episode we discuss the movie to decide just why that is. From the score to the effects to the casting to the storyline we discuss all aspects of the movie and discuss why it resonated with fans. We also put it in the context of the DC movies and superhero movies in general to talk about just where this is coming from.

The five-minute controversy from a year-and-a-half ago asks who we would prefer to see as the next Batman after Ben Affleck.

This week Ryan, Gary, and Ashley join the cast.
