Ep. #21 - Thanos Demands You Listen To This Podcast

May 7, 2018

We're back! In today's episode, my good friends Mark Conwell and Jared Rigsby join me to discuss the much anticipated Avengers: Inifnity War. I'll go ahead and throw this out there: **SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!**

During segment one, we each talk about our overall thoughts and feelings on the film, what we did/didn't like about it, and give a letter grade for the movie.

During segment two, we had more of a free-wheeling discussion about Inifinity War. We touched on a few things such as what we thought about Thanos as a villian, how well the Russo brothers balanced out the huge ensemble cast, and our favorite fight scenes.

And for segment three, we threw out some of our predictions on where we think the MCU will go from here, how they'll wrap up Phase 3, and what we might expect after that.
