pop a la carte 146 wakanda

Valerie, Tatiana, and Richard reunite to recap one year and look forward to the next. First, we discuss the joys of LA Comic-Con (0:35) before going into the most recent trailers (2:30) such as Barbie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Naturally, this meant discussing the fabulous Holiday Special. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (11:00) also gets a special shoutout for being the most anticipated film in the bunch, as does Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny for having the most concerning title.

Mayfair Witches gets a preliminary discussion (27:00), with what is certain to be a debate between book readers and show enthusiasts a la Interview with a Vampire. The DC Comics arm of Warner Bros. gets a more in-depth discussion (38:30) with plenty of speculation about what that means for everyone from Batman to Wonder Woman. Disney, on the other hand, gets the “What Happened With Bob Chapek” treatment (58:00).

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (1:12:00) gets a lengthy discussion, followed by an attempt to understand Netflix’s 1899 (1:25:00). But the biggest discussion is saved for Avatar: The Way of Water (1:46:00), so sit back and strap in. Finally, things wrap up with a list of 2022’s Top Stores and 2023’s Most Anticipated ones!
