PODCAST: July Movie & TV Preview! Stranger Things 3! Spider-Man: Far From Home! & More!


Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

   LIVE FROM RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL! …Well… No, not really… But it’s a good show anyway! On this week’s episode of The World’s Best Podcast, guest co-host Paul Sr. and I discuss the must see movies and TV series coming up next month, in our July Movie & TV Preview! We give you the scoop on Spider-Man: Far From Home, Stranger Things 3, Young Justice: Outsiders & more! Of course, along the way we take some of our usual nonsensical detours, but that’s part of the fun! 

  I also wanted to mention, as a public service announcement, that the word around the campfire is that Spider-Man: Far From Home is not only spectacular, but it also has a lot of cool surprises and twists and turns. Besides the trailer I have posted below, I’d recommend avoiding anymore trailers or clips from Spider-Man: Far From Home. From what I’ve heard, this is a movie you want to go into knowing as little as possible. Speaking of trailers, you can also check out the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, as well as Stranger Things 3 and Young Justice: Outsiders at the end of this article.

   As a little bonus for our World’s Best Media readers and subscribers, I wanted to bring your attention to a few other movies and TV shows premiering in July that we didn’t have time to go over on the podcast. First up, we have Amazon Prime’s new series The Boys. Based on the incredible comic book series created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson, The Boy’s takes place in a world where superheroes exist, but they’re reckless, entitled assholes who are way more likely to kill a bunch of innocent people as collateral damage than they are to save the day. When these pricks get really out of hand, The Boys step in. The Boy’s are a covert government team of violent lunatics who fuck up and/or kill superheroes who get out of line. Garth Ennis is the amazing writer behind the comic book classic Preacher as well as writing the most iconic run on The Punisher of all time. If you’re at all familiar with Ennis’ writing you won’t be surprised that The Boys is batshit insane in the best possible way.  Everything I’ve seen so far has indicated that the show is pretty damn faithful to the source material. I’m pretty psyched for this one. Make sure you check out the trailer posted below. The Boys premieres on Amazon Prime on July 26.

   Lastly, we have the new DCAU movie (or DC Animated Universe movie), Batman:Hush. I’m alway excited when one these new animated movies come out. They may not always knock out of the park, but when they do it’s fucking spectacular. Batman: Hush is based on the comic book storyline of the same name, an iconic Batman story written by Jeph Loeb (Batman: The Long Halloween) and legendary artist Jim Lee. The story is a sprawling mystery about a mysterious madman calling himself Hush, who’s hellbent on destroying Batman and everything he loves. The story is a trip through the most iconic parts of Batman’s world, featuring everyone from The Joker and Ras Al Ghul to Superman and Nightwing. This movie has the potential to be great, so I hope DC really nails this story. The trailer is posted below. Batman: Hush hits digitally on July 20th and on Blu-Ray August 6th.

PODCAST: Movie News! Strangers Things SHAZAM! Supernatural, New Trailer, & More!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

This was a big week for film and television. There were some big announcements (good and bad), we got a few interesting interesting new trailers (Stranger Things Season 3 being my personal favorite) and reviews for some of the year’s most anticipated movies.

The biggest story of the week was probably the Disney/Fox merger. It’s official, the Disney/Fox merger has completed. What does that mean? Well, basically Disney now owns all of Fox’s entertainment intellectual property. The big thing most people have been focusing on, especially here at World’s Best Media is how this will affect Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fox had control of a lot of very cool characters from Marvel Comics most notably (and most excitingly) the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.

The timing is perfect for the MCU. After Avengers: Endgame blows our collective minds, this Chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close and a new Chapter will begin. Marvel announced earlier this week that EVERYTHING in the MCU from Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame will be known as The Infinity Saga. I actually really like that they’ll be one name for this huge story instead of just Phases 1-3.

We don’t know much about the new direction the MCU will be taking except that it kicks off in Phase 4, which will begin with Spider-Man: Far From Home opening this July. Marvel Studios like to make big theatrical announcements about their upcoming films. Considering how secretive they have been about Avengers:Endgame. I imagine the events of the film will drastically alter the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a degree that they won’t be able to announce much without spoiling Endgame in someway. I expect we’ll see a big press conference/announcement from Kevin Fiege, the head of Marvel Studios. How long until we see X-Men and Fantastic Four characters in the MCU? Time will tell…

John Wick 3…. So fucking awesome!

In the meantime, check out this week’s episode of The World’s Best Podcast where I discuss all the big movie and TV that hit this week. In this episode I talk about Supernatural ending it’s run with next year’s Season 15, so here’s a link to an article I wrote about the series last year if you want to learn more about the series: https://best-media-world.com/2017/09/25/must-watch-supernatural/
