Comics Onscreen – Marvel Media Adaptations (and Wonder Woman)

Sony Pictures

In this episode, Curt and Kevin welcome comics creator and Creative Loafing Atlanta editor in chief Carlton Hargro for a wide-ranging look at the year in movie and TV adaptations of Marvel Comics properties … plus a little-known indie film you may have heard of by the name of Wonder Woman.

Spoilers abound in this non-canonical spectacular as we review the swinging Spider-Man: Homecoming, the high-flying Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the leaden Iron Fist, Marvel’s Agents of The M.A.T.R.I.X., the head trip that is FX’s Legion and Hugh Jackman’s swan song as Wolverine in Logan.

But that’s not all! We also briefly mention upcoming projects including the promising Thor: Ragnarok, the not-so-promising Inhumans, Netflix’s street-level super-team The Defenders and The Punisher. Then we wrap it all up with a talk about things we hope to see in future Marvel projects (and speaking of Marvel, Kevin plugs his recent essay on Secret Empire).

Other Things Discussed in This Episode:

The Comics Canon is presented with the support of Creative Loafing Atlanta, home of such podcasts as Mo Audio and Dish on the Dish.
