In one hour's time, you have finished this episode of Super Cinema. In an hour and ten minutes, you are making sure to subscribe and tell your friends. Before the day is over, you will have survived nuclear war. The picture is falling to the ground now. None of this can be said to have even existed.

Coming out of their Rose City Comic Con stupor, Nikki Boylan (still dressed as Wonder Woman), Ben Hamlin (without his cyclops glasses) and Katie Hughes (dressed as a store brand Pussycat), talk about Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Is the film adaption too faithful to the original? Is it too indulgent in its own violence? Yes. But hear us talk at length about the factors that hold Watchmen back.

SPEAKING OF HOMECOMING, Nikki is back from camp for more Super Cinemas! Now that she's back in the co-host seat, Nikki Boylan and Ben Hamlin sit down to talk about her favorite webhead, The Spider-Man. We dig into writing millennials, enhancing well worn teenage tropes with superheroism and the great responsibility that comes with great power. We also talk Infinity Gauntlet comics, Thor: Ragnarok and fourteen minutes of Sinister Six talk waiting for you on our Patreon.

Now that Nikki's back, you can expect her show, Reading Into It to return to our YouTube Channel.
Ben Hamlin and Nikki Boylan were both at Rose City Comic Con and will be doing a live special on YouTube tomorrow the day of this episode.

EP35: The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Super Cinema is back from its summer hiatus! This time, frequent guest Kevin Veldman talks with Ben Hamlin about the 2008 Incredible Hulk movie. Weirdly, Ben's never seen the grandfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We talk Hulk character depth, Justice League trailers and Infinity Guantlet in this intellectual episode about character and smashing.

EP34: V for Vendetta (with Bethany Leuthold)!

Ben Hamlin and special guest Bethany Leuthold sit down to talk about revolution, fascism and anarchy in a very intellectual comparison of panel to the screen. This episode might be the closest analysis we've ever done between a book and a movie. V for Vendetta is a very streamlined movie, but does it cut the author out of the work in the process? Listen to this week's Super Cinema to find out!

Ben Hamlin and Bethany Leuthold are both hard at work making Cursed Seas - A Roll With It Anthology will release in late July and Bethany just finished the first prologue chapter of Nest of Paragon! Check out their work on Infinitybreak.net
