Pop! Pop! Ep. 22 – Captain America: Civil War Review

Episode 22 of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!  It’s here, and you’re going to listen to it, how exciting! The LA Nerd and Taylor welcome their very old friend David McGreavy onto the show for their longest episode yet.

Michael Fassbender’s Assassins Creed has a first trailer and we all went into it excited, and came out… very not excited; we can never have enough Star Wars, so Battlefront is coming out with new material next year to quench our thirst; only David knows what Disney Infinity is, but it’s been discontinued and he tells us why; Chance The Rapper (praise be his name) has a third mixtape coming out and the guys are extremely pumped for it; Star Wars Episode VIII has some rumored titles that we don’t believe are real and Bryan Singer talks about the (never ending) future of the X-Men franchise!

Then, for the main event, the guys talk waayyyy too long about the newest Marvel film which The LA Nerd has dubbed Spider-Man: Civil War Feat. Captain America because Spider-Man is way more important than Cap is.

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