Pop! Pop! Ep. 21 – Homecoming (aka Tangentcast)

Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! is BACK! After an unscheduled hiatus (the guys have lives, okay?) The LA Nerd and Taylor are sitting down with their friend Patrick Geraghty again to bring you the nerdiest news of the week!

Jim from The Office is going to be a secret agent; Joel uses Snapchat to learn from a fan that Alicia Vikander is going to be the new, more-appropriately-sized-chested Lara Croft; Jon Bernthal stole everyone’s hearts as the Punisher so he’s getting his own series at Netflix; RDJ just can’t quit Iron Man and the guys aren’t too beat up about it; Joel & Taylor absolutely lose their shit over the newest Spider-Man footage from Captain America: Civil War while Patrick couldn’t care less and finally, 20th Century Fox is taking a page out of the Marvel playbook by skipping Comic-Con’s Hall H this year… Joel predicts the Comic-Con bubble is soon going to pop!

All of this and more on this week’s episode of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! 

Show Notes:

[0:00 – 2:11]  Intro & sweet smooth jams.

[2:12 – 13:00]  John Krasinski is the new Jack Ryan. (Also a tangent about Netflix/Hulu/Amazon content)

[13:01 – 18:25]  Our first Snapchat topic on the show: Alicia Vikander cast as Lara Croft (Also a tangent about the movies she’s been in. We love  Ex Machina!)

[18:26 – 24:50]  Jon Bernthal and The Punisher get a spinoff series on Netflix. (Also a tangent about the MCU television shows.)   

[24:51 – 28:42]  Nathan Fillion cast in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as Wonder Man. (Also a tangent about Nathan Fillion for Nathan Drake.) 

[28:43 – 35:05]  Robert Downey Jr. is considering an Iron Man 4.  (Also a tangent about Wolverine being in X-Men: Apocalypse.)

[35:06 – 50:37]  Tom Holland’s debut solo film will be called Spider-Man: Homecoming & Spider-Man’s new footage in the latest Civil War television spot is jizz-worthy.   

[50:38 – 1:08:30]  20th Century Fox is skipping Comic-Con’s Hall H this year. 

[1:08:30 – 1:11:37] Outro / shout-outs!
