Pop! Pop! Ep. 25 – Remembering Anton Yelchin

This week on episode 25 of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! The LA Nerd and Taylor talk about WB bringing TWENTY ONE shows to Comic-Con, yeah, we didn’t know they had that many shows either… Also! The “Ultimate Edition” of Batman five Superman is supposed to “fix” the things that were wrong with the movie but we don’t buy it, it’s probably still going to suck.  Nicholas Winding Refn wants to make a Batgirl movie, Daniel Radcliffe mightpossiblymaybe want to return as Harry Pothead, John Boyega is teaming back up with director Joe Cornish, and Sony wants to make Silver Sable movie (we heard you saying “who?” so we explain who she is!)

After Nerd News the guys solemnly discuss the death of one of the greatest young actors of our generation: Anton Yelchin.  From Charlie Bartlett to Star Trek, Alpha Dog to Like Crazy, Anton is one of those actors who’s performance elevates any film that he’s in.  Shitty film to begin with or destined to be great from the start, Anton’s roles were always a joy to watch and we’ll miss him dearly <3

[21:27 – 24:30]  John Boyega tweeted that he and Joe Cornish are brainstorming for a new project.
