The Weekly Stuff Podcast #227 – Ranking 10 Years of Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies
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.
With Black Panther continuing its stunning box-office run and dominating pop culture conversations, we thought this might be a good week to look back at the 10-year history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that brought us to this point, the journey that began way back in May of 2008 with the original Iron Man. We talk about what it’s been like to follow (and, for this podcast, cover) 10 years of this Hollywood-changing phenomenon, and in classic Weekly Stuff fashion, we also rank all 18 movies released under the Marvel Studios banner thus far, creating in real-time our ‘definitive’ podcast rankings of all the films. We also cover a small piece of Doctor Who news, grapple with Joss Whedon’s complicated legacy in a conversation triggered by his leaving DC’s Batgirl project, and at the very end, talk about how baffling it is to see the argument against ‘violent video games’ back in the mainstream again from America’s highest office.
