    We at The Fanboy Garage deliver a super charged episode as we immediately unpack our reactions to the latest news of Henry Cavill reportedly hanging up the cape and boots as Superman. With news reports, statements, recasting rumors and strange videos, we try to make sense of everything happening with the blue boy scout and whether or not we expect to see Cavill sport the “S” again.

From there, we discuss the on again/off again love we have for the broader Marvel TV shows on Netflix and whether or not there are strong threads connecting the TV and cinematic universes. That leads us through a quick and dirty dissertation on Star Wars canon across the books, comics, TV shows and movies and how maybe sometimes having EVERYTHING connected isn’t necessarily a good thing.

    To close the show, we share our thoughts on the incoming reviews and reactions to Shane Black’s The Predator and where we are on the current standing of the franchise. Before we close the doors of the garage, we discuss the latest teases from Sylvester Stallone that a fifth Rambo movie is on the way and whether or not fans need another movie.

From there, we get into a conversation on whether or not there should be a set time between original movies and their remakes/reboots before we jump into the Fall and Winter movies we’re looking forward to the most (hint Halloween, Aquaman and maybe Venom).

    To close the show, we tackle some of our favorite DC Elseworld stories in comics and in animated films before answering a final listener question about a Batman Beyond movie.

    With a Snap of a finger, we shift gears to address a question on why we think Avengers: Infinity War is so good, if not the best in the MCU. To close the show, we discuss the idea that there may be too many comic book movies out there for viewers to digest and that takes us down the road to examine the DCstrategy for releasing films including the potential challenge Aquaman is facing with other blockbusters being released in the same weekend like Bumblebee.
