    Warning: Do not listen to this episode unless you have seen the A-24 Oscar Nominated 2022 Release, "Everything Everywhere All at Once" or do not mind hearing key plot points. Why is Everything Everywhere All at Once being reviewed on the Hall of Justice? This film, which has garnered multiple award nominations, is as much a “comic book movie” as anything by DC or Marvel. It involves an infinite multiverse. The adventure consists of a family and they are thrust into a battle for the fate of the universe. That sounds like many comic books and can be compared to the Crisis on Infinite Earths which had plot twists like any sci-fi film. Syracuse University Film Studies Professor Dr. Kendall Phillips rejoins the show to talk about the film. He addresses the reasons this film is receiving Oscar nominations while traditional comic book films are often overlooked. The episode also asks if a comic book movie has to be based on an actual comic book or if it can invoke the themes of a comic book.

    On Monday, January 16, 2023, during ESPN's coverage of the NFL Playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the new trailer for Season 3 of the Disney+ Star Wars series “The Mandalorian” premiered. It showed the titular character in various action scenes. However, Mando was also with Grogu, aka Baby Yoda. However, in the dramatic Season 2 finale, Mando said goodbye to Grogu. The missing piece here was in Episodes 5 and 6 of another Disney+ Star Wars show “The Book of Boba Fett.” In it, the Mandalorian is reunited with Grogu. Social media was quick to point out that unless you saw the Boba Fett show, a major plot point from the Mandalorian was missing. This raised the issue that deals with franchises. In order to be a Star Wars fan, do you have to watch ALL things Star Wars? Does that apply to Marvel and DC and other franchises? Star Wars insider J.C. Reifenberg returns to the podcast to discuss this latest Star Wars controversy.

This is the sequel to the 2018 Marvel hit “Black Panther.” However, after that movie, the titular star, Chadwick Boseman, tragically passed away from cancer.

Was T'Challa given a superhero death? Marshall Harris of CBS Chicago rejoins the show to discuss this film.
