Hi, and welcome to a super episode of Movie Podcast Weekly — Episode 136, where we dedicated the entire show to discussion of Marvel’s Ant-Man, The Avengers (2012) and our Feature Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron! If you’re a comic book geek, this show is for you! We’ve brought in three expert guests: Willis Wheeler, Geek Cast Ry and newcomer Matt the Marvel. Our new Avengers review has no spoilers initially; then we give a big spoiler warning and explore the insides of this hulking movie! Join us, and don’t forget to leave us a voicemail: (801) 382-8789.
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features three hosts — Jason, Andy and Karl — along with frequent guests. We give you our verdicts on at least one new movie release from the current year that’s currently playing in theaters, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. And we usually provide specialized genre recommendations. New episodes release every single Wednesday.
