Pop! Pop! Ep. 24 – X-Men: Apocalypse

Ohhhhhhhhh snap! Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! is back with a 24th episode!  This week the guys invite Izzy Beers, the guy who replaced Taylor in the apartment, to talk shop on the podcast.

J.K. Simmons got SWOL AF at the gym to play Jim Gordon in Justice League; the ever beautiful and perfect Brie Larson is in “serious talks” to play Captain Marvel, presumably in Infinity Wars; speaking of Marvel, the studio is returning to Comic-Con’s Hall H this year, most likely with Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; bust out your gambling shoes because the Ocean’s franchise is rebooting with an all female cast and it’s pretty damn good!  And finally, the guys review the hell out of one of the only good third superhero film, X-Men: Apocalypse.
