The Weekly Stuff Podcast #215 - Justice League, Star Wars Battlefront II Debacle, and Remembering Hiromi Tsuru

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

The headline topic this week is DC’s disastrously boring Justice League movie, an incomprehensible, empty shell of a movie we spend over an hour of today’s show discussing in spoiler-rich detail. Suffice it to say, the film feels like the nail in the coffin for DC’s ‘shared universe’ film plans, which we’ve been covering on the show for years. But we also discuss two of the week’s big game releases – Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch and Pokemon Ultra Sun for the 3DS – and cover some major news items, including the ongoing debacle over EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II lootbox controversy, and the passing of beloved Japanese voice actress Hiromi Tsuru, who voiced Bulma in Dragon Ball for over 30 years.
