This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, Mark Walters stops by to discuss the host of Big Fan Boy news and the future (or lack thereof) of the comic book movie.
Of course, one night after discussing the need for originality and the weariness of even looking out on seeing yet another Spider-Man origin story…news breaks that a famous director wants his shot at Batman.
Plus, we manage to find time to grow beards and review The Green Hornet.
