Pop! Pop! Ep. 15 – Marvel five DC Trailer Showdown!

Pop! Pop! The Pop Culture Podcast! is back after an unforeseen month-long break!  The LA Nerd and Taylor talk about Mr. Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station & Creed fame) being up for the Black Panther directing spot.  He’s good, his movies are good, we like it!  Also, Disney is seeking three female directors and two female writers for the Star Wars franchise and we break down who they could scoop up.  For the main event, the guys break down the two most recent blockbuster trailers: Captain America: Civil War Batman five Superman; you know their love (and love to hate) for both, so tune in and hear what they have to say about the latest sneak peeks!

[14:30 – 28:03] – Boners are fully erect for the Captain America: Civl War trailer! Do we think Cap will survive his third installment?
