Hiring a New Batman

Batman vs Superman

This week we answer the most important question of our time: how can a city the size of Detroit go bankrupt? It's crazy, and after figuring that out in about three minutes, we then spend twenty trying to game out what Warners has planned for Batman vs. Superman before pitching actors we want to see take on the cowl.

Plus, we've got an Interrogation Review of The Wolverine, and in case your brain is overwhelmed by things in capes, Geoff and screenwriter Brian Duffield explain what to do when you get an extreme case of writer's block.

You can follow  Brian Duffield (@brianduffield), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

And, as always, we welcome your feedback.

San Diego Comic-Conquest 2013

Did you hear that this weekend is Comic-Con? It's true! It's weird that no one told you. Fortunately, this week's show features a visit to San Diego where our sentinels Robert Fure and Jack Giroux will tell us all the crazy stuff that's happening on the ground there in geek paradise (which happens to be a hotel room that's missing a bathroom door).

Plus, Geoff and I disagree wildly in our reviews of the new season of The Newsroom, and we prepare for the possibility of Spike Lee's retirement by discussing his legacy and forcing him to autograph old football paraphernalia.

You can follow Robert Fure (@robertfure), interviewer Jack Giroux (@jackgi), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

Canceling the Apocalypse

The dynamite is going boom this weekend with Pacific Rim, so we've got an interview with screenwriter Travis Beacham about building monsters with his brain. Plus, we present a handy pop quiz on earth-threatening, stories-tall beasts and some of the most ridiculous examples of them in movie history. You can play along at home, but just know that if you lose, Godzilla will find you and smash your house.

And as a magical bonus, Geoff has some advice about how to approach working screenwriters on Twitter for advice.  

Speaking of which, you can follow Travis Beacham (@travisbeacham), interviewer Jack Giroux (@jackgi), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

Summer Movies You Can See in a Year

We're a little bit exhausted by the summer of 2013. To take a break from it, we wanted to look into the future, and even though there's a giant conversation to be had about Untitled Marvel Studios Movie hitting in 2016, we figured we'd keep it simple by only jumping ahead a year.

So we'll be getting excited about the bursting-with-potential summer movies of 2014, and Geoff will answer a listener's screenwriting question focused on which character romantic comedies should focus on. Plus, we've got an outstanding piece of orchestral music fresh out of the Warner Bros. studio to share with you. It's from a promising young composer with a Reddit-worthy story.

For more from us on a daily basis, follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on the Twitter.

And, as always, we welcome your feedback.
