Issue 8: Invincible *and* Falcon and the Winter Soldier!
Chris and Erik discuss more Immortal Hulk comics, rumors surrounding the new John Stewart "Green Lantern" film as well as the HBO Max live action 'Green Lantern Corps' series, the "New Mutants" movie, the new "Mortal Kombat" movie, and finally we do a deep dive into both "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" (Disney +) and the all new "Invincible" animated series (Amazon Prime) based on the comics by Robert Kirkman! NOTE: We are painfully aware that Peyton Reed is NOT directing the upcoming MCU Fantastic Four feature film; at one point he was rumored for the position which excited us, but the actual director for the upcoming film is the director of the newest Spider-Man films, Jon Watts. For shame.
