Pop! Pop! Ep. 23 – The Next 007

The next iteration of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! is here and it’s short and concise… You’re welcome!

The LA Nerd & Taylor have some Nerd News for you as usual: There’s ANOTHER leaked title for Star Wars Episode VIII but this time it seems a little bit more legit; someone is challenging Stephen Lang for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2 and that someone is Hellboy himself – Ron Perlman; the negotiations have gone back and forth but Michael Keaton is finally playing the villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming for sure; J. Law is being cheeky about returning to the X-Men Universe and says she’ll only come back if Fassbender and Mcavoy do, too… We’re okay with this deal.

And finally for the main topic, we discuss 11 actors that could replace Daniel Craig as the next 007 aka – Bond, James Bond.
