Neil and Stu were at the X-Men: Apocalypse global fan screening, hobnobbing with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Oscar Isaac. One of us came out thinking it was even better than Captain America: Civil War, whilst the other felt it was one of the worst superhero movies ever made. Like a podcast Xavier and Magneto, the duo breakdown the movie to defend their wildly differing viewpoints. Will they find common ground? Goes without saying that there are spoilers throughout.
What's so Civll about War anyway? A packed issue of BAM features reviews of Wonder Woman: Earth One, Captain America: Civil War and Locke & Key. Also, in the first BAM Cuppa Comics interview, we're joined by Millarworld's editor Rachael Fulton to discuss Empress, Jupiter's Legacy, the Millarworld Annual, builder's tea and more.
REVIEWED: Empress, Black Panther, Street Fighter X G. I. Joe, Batman '66 meets the Man From U.N.C.L.E. and The Vision.
Yep, it's true, after last issue's movie-focused special, the transatlantic trio actually talk about real comic books this time. Along the way you'll learn about the Hathaway Slap (not to be confused with '90s one-hit wonder Haddaway) and the dangers of thrush.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reviewed! The DC Comics Trinity of superheroes - Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman - are united on the big screen for the first time. So what did the comic book podcast trinity of Neil, Carly and Stu think?
We reveal who had "more wind machines than Diana Ross", which character should have been "Frank Underwood and not Rainman", as well as argue that this might be the "best 3/5 superhero movie" you'll see this year.
This transatlantic issue discusses the recent controversy surrounding the Iron Fist casting for 2017's Marvel Netflix TV series. But before all that, who/what the ruddy heck is an Iron Fist... and how does this segue into asking whether Nic Cage would have made a sexy Superman in Tim Burton's aborted motion picture? Also, Neil, Stu and Carly find time to review some comics... this time it's IDW's 1950s horror anthology Haunted Love and a "decent 4 out of 5" for Titan Comics' The Troop.
Kicking off with the correct tea making etiquette, Neil, Carly and Stu then review the first issue of "plus size superheroine" Faith. The gang finally get round to watching the recent (less than) Fantastic Four movie... and live to tell the tale. Plus the results of the first BAM Bargain Hunt are revealed - Carly and Stu each had a £10 limit to spend at London Super Comic Con. Who will Neil judge has the best haul?
Punishing the guilty and guardian-ing the galaxy... Neil, Stu and Carly are back. This time the gang debate how blood-splatter is the new on trend fashion tip for men, discuss Deadpool (again), Ben Batfleck in the new Batman v Superman trailer, and how the Old Man Logan storyline is tipped to be the basis for The Wolverine 3 movie. We tell you everything you need to know about Mantis, who is set to join the team in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 movie, talk about the latest issue of Darth Vader, and reveal what part amino acids played in creating a 60s lame super villain, Animal Vegetable Mineral Man.
Neil, Stu and Carly review Deadpool... well, Neil rants about how Deadpool is like Shakespeare. Sort of. We also discuss the logistics of urinating in a goodie bag, how not to run a comic book awards show, and why the national media is suggesting that we're in the new golden age of comics. And if that's not enough, the latest entry in the Sinister Society of Stupid is a PVC clad femme fatale with an organic, shape-shifting computer for a head.
This time Neil and Stu are joined by Carly for a discussion on the Marvel Netflix TV shows - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist. We talk story arcs, subplots, casting rumours, and whether we really want The Defenders appearing in Avengers: Infinity War.
This is ground control to Major Tom... here's the (ever so slightly later than planned) second issue of the BAM ComicsCast.
Your hosts Neil Gorton and Stu Taylor discuss the recent Suicide Squad trailer, DC Films versus the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the late great David Bowie's comic book connections, and submit Suicide Squad kinkster Slipknot into the Sinister Society of Stupid. Bring your own special rope.
