Spider-Man Far From Home


Spider-Man Good; Spider-Man Discourse Bad.

Nikki and Ben just got out of the theater for Spider-Man Far From Home and they are thrilled to be able to talk about their favorite web-head for the fourth time this year. We talk about the unnecessary complexities of spoiler culture, the role of comedy and drama, why Spider-Man discourse is bad and boring to them as life long Spider-Man readers, and most importantly: how to bring Kraven The Hunter into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hear about Ben’s favorite villains! Admire the complexities of Peter Parker! Revel in Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance It’s theories, illusions, menaces and more on this spectacular episode of Super Cinema.

Thanks to the generous and genuine support of our patrons we’re able to start our monthly comic book specials! Nikki and Ben love comic book movies but they love comic books that much more, so tune in and listen to them talk about their favorite titles once a month.

In this inaugural special, Nikki talks about Scorpio by John B. Robinson IV and Saladin Ahmed’s new Miles Morales Spider-Man book, and Ben talks about Christopher Sebela and Ro Stein’s Crowded and the new Jeff Lemire Moon Knight series!

Plus hear a special announcement about Nikki’s new tabletop streaming show - Legends of Laia. Join us back in one month for more exciting comic book reviews that will absolutely include Venom discussions. Surprise.

Ep44: Venom


Sorry folks! Nikki and Ben had to take a break to sort out some life stuff and work on some other projects. But Super Cinema is back! Kind of! We’ve gotten a bit overwhelmed by the raw amount of comic books movies and media circulating around these days, so we’re only going to do Super Cinema occasionally for movies we really, truly enjoyed!

But fear not, dear listener! There’s more Nikki and Ben content incoming! We passed our first funding goal over at our patreon and that means once a month Nikki and Ben (and some guests) will sit down to talk about comic books in a monthly Super Comics special! We’re planning the first one out now! AND Ben and Nikki are pivoting over to a true passion of theirs: tabletop. Nikki’s launching her own live-play Dungeons and Dragons campaign on our Twitch with Ben, Andrew and Johnny of Speak of the Devil and Matty of Sneople At The Movies.

And now, without further to do, a spectacular episode full of maximum carnage: It’s time to talk about Venom, the Sinister Six, vampires and so, so much more.

EP43: Iron Man 3


We've been avoiding talking about Iron Man 3 long enough. Nikki and Ben spend an unhealthy amount writing alternate endings for Infinity War - a movie we had not seen when this was recorded. What's that? There's a Deadpool movie on the horizon. Time for a loving critique of the recent X-Men movies. What happens when we finally get to talking about our feature film? WELL, things get a little bit explosive!

Get it? Cause Extremis made people combust? Don't forget to leave a 5 star review.

EP42: Black Panther (2018)


We're ditching the normal format of our show to just talk about the runaway success of Black Panther. Buckle up and get ready for an all expense paid trip to talking about morally complex villains, crafting an independent story in a shared universe, Marvel's distinct lack of symphonic scores and dorky gorilla cult leaders. Don't worry, we'll still cover Iron Man 3 in the next episode. It's just that Black Panther was THAT good.
