On This Week’s Show:

Movie News Pop Quiz [The Beginning – 14:40]: It’s Carr vs. Napier. Two men enter, two men leave. The winner forces us to talk about when it’s appropriate to tell an origin story, and we scratch our heads so the brilliance can fall out. And, seriously, Jim Napier sounds exactly like Stan Lee.

Blah Blah Blah Ape Mask [14:40 – 29:00]: 30 Minutes or Less‘s Nick Swardson brings his sense of humor and inappropriate mustache to a thoughtful interview about acting, improvisation, and strapping a bomb to Jesse Eisenberg’s chest.

Feminism With a Cape [29:00 – The End]: When you check out the line-up for The Avengers, it’s all dudes plus Black Widow. Why? There are a bunch of female heroes, and John Gholson joins us to share a few and send a direct message to Marvel about its cowardice.
