This week on Nerds United, the guys continue the years-long tradition of Turkey Before Turkey.
There was some moderate comic book acquisition in the short week, as Greg shares his pick-ups. And while Greg was getting comics, Mike was at the theater watching The Marvels, so the Co-Host of the Year talks about that movie a bit.
With Blue Beetle’s arrival on MAX, both guys had the chance to watch it, and they gave their thoughts.
We’re thankful for you, and we remind you to be kind.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike admit that neither of them did a ton of reading in the past week. But the guys have plenty to discuss.
Greg finished Under the Dome and while the premise was really interesting at the outset, he found the ending to be a bit lacking.
But Loki’s season finale definitely delivered.
Also, some trailers out there, like the Madam Web movie we forgot about, and the second season of What If. Basically, if you want Marvel done right, leave it to Marvel.
Mike poses an interesting question. If you’re sitting down with someone who hasn’t seen a Marvel movie, but the notion of 30+ movies and tv shows is a bit daunting, where do you start, and what is essential? So the guys break down their essential movies of Marvel’s Phases 1, 2, and 3.
This week on Nerds Untied, Mike and Greg discuss the season finale of Gen V and the timeline for its end and season four of The Boys. Greg is behind on Loki Season Two but hopes to get caught up in the next few days.
Greg is watching Under the Dome, a show from a decade ago, and was surprised to find in its third season that the culprit is aliens. I mean, aliens?
So let’s just get into it. In the course of the discussion, the guys talk about the second season of The Santa Clauses, coming to Disney+ this holiday season. Greg mistakenly said Kumail Nanjiani was in the first season before Mike corrected him, stating it was in fact Kal Penn.
Mike continued to state that the confusion happens so frequently that the stars have addressed it publicly.
Before that part of the show, the guys talk about some of the comics they’ve been reading and the shows they’ve been watching or, in Greg’s case, discovered for the first time.
We’re poised, it would seem, to get some live-action Gargoyles in the future on Disney+.
The end of the show has the guys blind-ranking Halloween candy, which as it turns out, is just candy with a few seasonal additions.
This episode, at least the first ten or fifteen minutes, is dedicated to birds. All the years I’ve known Mike, and I had no idea he was an amateur ornithologist.
After that, we get into some recent comic book acquisitions and books we’ve been reading. Mike is pretty excited for Greg to get his hands on Gideon Falls, a Jeff Lemire graphic novel.
Meanwhile, Greg picked up some DC Knight Terrors tie-ins and hopes to get them read in a timely manner. And Greg binged Beckham in one day this past week. Check out the trailer. If you were alive and cognizant of pop culture in the late 1990s, there’s no way you were able to avoid the David Beckham/Posh Spice mania.
New episodes of Loki and Gen V, but the conversation shifted to horror and Halloween, as Mike determined that most horror movies don’t take place at Halloween, and asked “which movies take place at Halloween.”
The show is wrapped up with blind rankings of Halloween costumes, which we will try to share in short-form video on some of our platforms.
This week on the show, Mike and Greg share their experience of going to the college football game Friday night between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Illinois Fighting Illini. It was Mike’s first ever college football game, and he’s now a Husker convert.
After telling the tales of Friday night, both Mike and Greg discuss their comic book acquisitions and shows we’ve been watching.
Ahsoka finished up this past week, as did Only Murders in the Building. Meanwhile, Gen V is off to a bloody start on Prime Video.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike are joined by another longtime voice from the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network.
Kevin Hunsperger, the host of My 1-2-3 Cents, sits in to discuss the Netflix docuseries WRESTLERS. If you’re not aware, WRESTLERS is a seven-episode series on Netflix that focuses on Ohio Valley Wrestling, both the names and faces in the ring and in the office.
And as an added bonus, the guys give Kevin a blind rank of wrestling finish maneuvers.
This time around on the ol Nerds United podcast, Mike and Greg discuss recent comic book acquisitions and what they’ve read. Gargoyles, Booster Gold, Man Thing, Astro City, Dark Knights of Steel, Once and Future, We Live, and a couple of characters, maybe you’ve heard of them, Batman and the Joker.
Then the duo discussed the Percy Jackson and the Olympians reboot heading to Disney+ later this year. Is that a show you’re excited to see? Let us know in the comments.
Then the guys went on to blind rank some stuff. First they did blind rankings of X-Men movies. Now for this, it wasn’t just movies with X-Men in the title, but any movie with an X-Man in it (and one that was tangentially included).
And then a couple of guys who like food blind rank breakfast noms.
…as a 41 year old man, it feels weird typing out “noms.”
This week on Nerds United, the guys face the stunning realization that Greg is out of shape. Mike is a stud who goes to the gym but also likes food. Greg likes food and doesn’t go to the gym. You see the problem.
So the guys talk a little bit about vegetables. Honestly, I think they talk more about vegetables than either of them actually eat vegetables.
So what books did the guys have the chance to read this week? And what shows have they been enjoying?
Is the ongoing Hollywood strike to blame for our lack of content? We think so.
And speaking of Hollywood, WB finally gave us a trailer for Aquaman 2. It feels like a great continuation to a movie that made over a billion dollars at the global box office…but will anyone care?
Holy schnikes! This episode has Greg and Mike in the same room! Relive the glory days as the duo records from Studio A, aka Greg’s kitchen table.
This week, the guys go off the rails a little bit and discuss all sorts of odd topics. But eventually they cycle back to discussing comic books and comic book movies, superhero movie fatigue, and if the MCU is repeating mistakes made by its comic book partner.
And…if you didn’t know…we’re on TikTok. And Greg has no idea what that means.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg rank the six Mission Impossible movies that have been out for more than a week (no Dead Reckoning Vol. 1). But before that, the guys go on a trip through what they have watched and read. There’s talk about what heaven may be like, though no one knows for sure.
There’s news about the Hollywood strike and Netflix cancelling the planned live-action He-Man project, into which they had already sunk $30,000,000. And the wait for more Futurama is just about over as new episodes hit Hulu on Monday.
But at the end, Tom Talk takes over as the guys rank the first six Mission Impossible movies. It’s almost an impossible task.
This week on Nerds United, Greg sits down with a couple of past guests who are also really good friends, Joe Dodd and Justin Holman. These two creators have gone rogue and are working on what they call the next evolution of comic books, a CYOA of sorts in the digital space known as Discord, where they work in tandem with an online community to build Lost Realms, a fantasy story with dragons, elves, and purple lady trolls. The community has a lot of input on the story as Joe will sit and sketch their ideas. Justin then takes the work and inks it.
Greg learns about web3, Discord, and other 21st Century terminology. Hear about how two guys with plenty of bona fides (#Marvel, #DC, #Hasbro) are betting on themselves in this endeavor, while Justin is also the lead writer for Dimensionals.
It’s time for a new episode, a new issue, as it were. It’s Wednesday, recognized as New Comic Book Day in most parts of the world. So why not spend this episode talking about a new comic book from an old friend.
Jason Copland is back on the show. You may remember him from Episode 83 where he talked about Kill All Monsters. But this time around, we’re talking about the project that Jason spent the last five years of his life building. He took a chance, bet on himself, and created Full Tilt.
In this episode, we’ll discuss Full Tilt, from its inception to its story. It’s a mob noir set in the 23rd century, and while it will have familiar elements, Jason says this story is really about loyalty and love.
Check out the episode, and be sure to check out the crowd-funding campaign.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg take a look back over the last five years and decide their favorite rewatchable movies. They also discuss the news and notes of the week and talk about the content coming off of Disney+ and Hulu, a board game based on a graphic novel about a board game, and new Hellboy.
This week’s show focuses largely on the Writers Guild strike, where something like 11,000 writers have put their pencils down in hopes of restructuring their compensation in regards to streaming content as well as making sure studios don’t utilize artificial intelligence for writing shows and movies.
But the strike has halted some shows, like Blade and interrupted shooting on other believed Marvel projects. However some are moving forward as scheduled, including Deadpool 3, LOTR: The Rings of Power, and Thunderbolts.
Meanwhile, there are rumors to who would play Reed Richards and Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie. And the guys take a shot at who should play Silver Surfer if that character is in the movie.
Mike also saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and gave a few thoughts on it that are completely spoiler-free. Seriously.
This week, the guys reconvene after Greg was out of town last week. Hear about that hilarious tale of misfortune and woe. Greg hasn’t been able to read too much this past week, but Mike has two books going.
Meanwhile, the guys enjoyed various shows and movies, from Mike watching an Academy Award-winning film to Greg sitting through Ryan Reynold’s not least-favorite movie.
Also, Ted Lasso had one of its best episodes of the season this past week, Greg is watching Star Wars Rebels and has finally got to the point where they’ve brought in Admiral Thrawn. Mike was about five episodes in to season two of Sweet Tooth and the guys are pretty pumped for The Flash.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg are back at it after Greg was on vacation last week. Hear about how the trip almost ended in disaster. Also, Mike is getting a promotion. Not from Co-Host of the Year but in hos actual place of employment. Also – how does one improve on Co-Host of the Year?
The guys read some comics and had a lot of good things to say. Hear about Suicide Squad, The Vision, and some X-Men.
Meanwhile, there have been some good shows on that the guys have enjoyed and they try to share that information with you.
It was storming the night the duo recorded, but the plan is to get together for a show in the not-too-distant future.
This week on Nerds Untied, Mike and Greg discuss everything from tassels on graphic novels to plans for Shazam! to the new Ninja Turtles trailer to home improvement and even in-show production meetings.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss some comics they’ve acquired and read (or in Greg’s case, re-read) as of late. The conversation meanders a bit as we discuss some home improvement and family topics.
With a new Hellboy in the works, the gents discuss Mike Mignola’s creation, past, present, and future. And Disney put out a few trailers for upcoming movies that are of low to moderate interest to us but probably higher interest to others.
And Greg poses a theory about casting characters in movies and how the fans react. It’s topical since a new Indiana Jones movie is in the can but Harrison Ford can’t play the character forever (we’re surprised he’s still playing the character now).
We hope you enjoy the show, and if you do, take a minute to rate and review it on your favorite podcast app. And we’d really like it if you share it with other nerds.
This week on the show, Greg and Mike discuss their recent comic book acquisitions, from a few familiar titles to some new books (Dawn of DC’s Superman #1 and Masters of the Universe Masterverse #1). Also discussed, some quality television in a variety of streaming services, shows that are new and shows that have a few years (Shrinking on Apple TV+ the former and Superstore on Hulu the latter).
And lastly, Greg took advantage of an open Friday afternoon and went to see Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania, so there are SPOILERS!
We hope you enjoy this show and if you do, please tell other people about us.
Well, we thank you for the terrific numbers last week. We’re confident it wasn’t a glitch. 1,100+. May be a new Jittery Monkey record (although Kevin did recently have RVD on episode 420).
This week on the show, Mike and Greg talk about some new streaming season announcements, like Ted Lasso, Cobra Kai, and Invincible. And the guys also share their differing opinions about the Letterkenny-verse after the announcement that Shoresy is getting a second season in 2023.
Another announcement was the third season of Mandalorian, which brought on another Star Wars discussion. And Mike made another bold statement in regards to how he views the franchise.
In an attempt to see if last week’s numbers are a technical glitch, we ask you to reach out to us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (@nerdsunitedshow) or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg recap their week’s reading and viewing. For Mike, that means going back and watching (re-watching, maybe, we hope?) THE trilogy…the OG…the original Star Wars trilogy. And following that act, he got into the sequel trilogy.
Oh boy…HOT TAKES!
Now Mike is challenging you to review the Star Wars movies through a critical lens and not one that is based on nostalgia.
Okay, we also talk about the continued state of DC Studios, the #6SeasonsandaMovie that Community is headed towards, the alleged Captain Planet movie, the upcoming second and final season of Carnival Row, and the new Quantumania trailer.
We’re very interested in your Star Wars hot takes!
There’s a lot of news lately about DC Studios (my very own shorthand for Warner Brothers-Discovery’s DCU). We all know that James Gunn and Peter Safran are now in charge of the movie/television division. But some of the news and notes that came out are pretty astounding.
Also, what did the guys read in the week? And how is Greg’s squats challenge going?
Lastly, there was a tragic accident last week involving Jeremy Renner and a snow plow.
All the details, and all the opinions, in the episode!
The final episode of the year includes a ranking of the movies and special events we got in 2022. And we encourage you to rank them as well in the comments.
The guys made another trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) and got some good books to discuss. There was also a little bit of news, like the planned Green Lantern show on HBO Max not necessarily being shelved, as well as what a Chadwick Boseman Black Panther sequel might have looked like.
Lastly, the guys end the year by ranking the 2023 movie offerings as to which ones they are most excited to see, Immediate dissension as the guys are out of the gates on different wavelengths.
Enjoy the show. Share it with others. Resolve to tell a few people about Nerds United in the new year. Be safe, and
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss the announcement (and confirmation) that Henry Cavill’s time playing Superman has come to an end. As James Gunn and Peter Safran rebuild the DCU, they are going away from the actor who started it all.
We also talk about the announced God of War series heading to Prime Video, trailers for upcoming movies Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse and Barbie (okay, we mention Barbie, we don’t go into detail).
Greg really liked the Netflix series Wednesday and thinks you will, too.
This week on Nerds United, we have to forego the annual “Turkey Before Turkey” that we’ve been celebrating for several years.
Not only was there no Wild Turkey, but he and his family didn’t get to go celebrate Thanksgiving.
Silver lining? He gets to go back to work tomorrow.
On this episode, the guys discuss some of the comics they read in the last week as well as what they watched (don’t sleep on Slumberland on Netflix).
Lastly, we discuss the tragic passing of Jason David Frank. This time of year, depression can really set in and your demons can creep in. Now, help is just 3 digits away. 9-8-8. Don’t hesitate. You are worth it.
Hey hey it’s new episode time. This week the guys get you caught up on the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament, talk about strong females like Emily Blunt and Stephanie Phillips, are surprised to learn that RIPD 2 is available now on Netflix, and The Santa Clauses has premiered on Disney+.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg give a first round update on the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament 2022. Who’s in and who’s out?
Meanwhile, we have some sad news as we discuss the passing of legendary voice actor Kevin Conroy.
And finally, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Admittedly, more spoilers than we’d like (Sorry BFOTS). But it’s a solid flick and a great addition to the MCU. So if you were on the fence about going to watch it, you can take our word for it – it’s worth it.
HEY HEY! It’s time for a new Nerds United. This week, Greg and Mike are filling you in on some comic book purchases (by Mike) and the fact that Greg hasn’t had any time to read in the last week.
So the news and discussion this week focuses on the revamped Green Lantern show headed to HBOMax sometime in the probably distant future (we’re not confident it will happen in our lifetimes) as well as Henry Cavill coming back to the DCU and Yahya being cast as Wonder Man for Marvel.
Also…Winchesters and Stargirl are axed while Sandman gets renewed at Netflix.
And as a bonus: there’s a trailer for A Christmas Story Christmas. You guessed it – the sequel to A Christmas Story. It’s a nice segway into the fact that we’re starting the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament this week (which we didn’t talk about at all on the show).
You read that right. In this episode, Mike grills Greg with some questions he pulled from late night television. So over eight and a half years in to this podcast, you finally get to know Greg just a little bit.
Also, and more importantly, Greg made a trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) this week and shares his acquisitions. Plus, we were graced with some new movie trailers this week, including our first look at (and listen to) The Super Mario Bros. Movie, a badass Santa picture called Violent Night, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Plus, Greg has some thoughts on the latest She-Hulk episode, and we parlay that into a little Daredevil talk.
Episode 300 is nearing. We are kicking around doing a live show. If so – be ready and bring questions.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike have a good discussion about overlapping tv shows on streaming services, vaguely remember the Netflix show “Shadow and Bones,” conveniently as Season 2 is announced.
Greg went to a Fall Fest on Saturday and tasted some beers. He had a great time, caught up with a lot of people he hadn’t seen in awhile, and made a promise to put some love out there for Colden Brewery, an up-and-coming adult beverage maker in Centralia, IL.
Also – the guys make some changes to some pre-MCU Marvel movies in hopes of making them better.
This week on Nerds United is a special episode, we keep the conversation OFF of current topics.
No She-Hulk. No Sandman. No comics we read or recently purchased at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL).
Instead, we have a topic inspired by The Sandman, a topic about favorite remembered dreams. We go on with a follow-up to a recent episode and the Cartoon All-Stars by creating Cartoon Intervention Teams for each other.
And lastly, have comic book movies peaked?
Enjoy the show. Rate. Review. Check out our Linktree, which was recently retooled.
The brand new episode of Nerds United with Greg and Mike recalls Mike’s trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) and the purchases he made there. They also discuss their different approaches to reading comics. Who wants to prolong a good story and who wants to finish a story to move on to the next one?
A less-than-loved Ryan Reynolds movie is surprisingly getting a sequel. Greg learns on the show that Reynolds will not reprise his role.
Also – A couple trailers dropped throughout the week, including a true story that’s not based in genre. But could it end up being the best war movie of all time?
Finally…how was She-Hulk?
Enjoy. Tell your friends. We have compiled an easy-to-navigate link list at Linktree. Check it out.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about the biggest news of the week, Batgirl is no longer set for release. This alters the alleged DC timeline we discuss.
Also, 80s classic Road House is being remade over on Amazon, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. And that leads directly into the bigger news of the day, which if you follow us on social media, you already know:
We have an 80s Movie Tournament. Similar to our Christmas Movie Tournament a few years back, just comment in the match up and tell us who survives and who is gone.
This week on Nerds United, Greg is back from vacation and that coincides with San Diego Comic Con.
Both Mike and Greg did some reading this past week – Mike with some classic Batman and Greg with a Moon Knight collection as well as a Locke and Key tie-in story that – bonus content I forgot to mention on the show itself – has a Sandman connection.
We talk about I am Groot and Spider-Man Freshman Year, spend a little time on Dungeons and Dragons, and discuss the bombshell news of the week in professional wrestling, that Vincent K McMahon has retired.
We were really just trolling Kevin from My 1-2-3 Cents and trying to scoop him, and while we recorded the show Friday night, we didn’t get a chance to get it uploaded until Saturday night. In the meantime, we picked a little fight with Kevin on Facebook and gave him a window to get his own “bonus show” out there. So check that out.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg prepare for the 4th of July (by Greg being extra old-man) and Mike can’t cook rice. Go figure.
Also, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is out and the guys talk about that show. And Game of Thrones is getting a spinoff but it’s not one we (okay, Greg) would most like to see. That doesn’t mean he won’t watch.
Also, which cinematic universe has more re-watch potential? MCU or the stuff from the DCEU? We have our thoughts but are curious as to yours.
This week on the show, the guys admit to getting a little fresh air in their old age. Greg completed a comic and started a new one. Mike didn’t have time to read this week.
The guys finished Obi-Wan Kenobi and gave a few thoughts on it. But really, a fair amount of the conversation is on Sony screwing up a(nother) Spider-Man villain. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, star of the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie, said that in this version, Kraven is a lover of animals and a protector of nature. That’s pretty much the farthest from the history of the character. So Greg decided that it’s time for Sony to be done with Spider-Man and all of his associates.
In all honesty, it’s 7:40am on a Monday because I had a busy weekend and didn’t get this produced until now. And I have to shower and shave and get to work yet, so the write-up will be lacking.
This week on the show, Mike and I talked about some specific comics, the Joker sequel/Lady Gaga rumors, the fact that Guy Ritchie is developing a Hercules live-action movie, there’s a Duke Nukem movie in talks (again), and more.
Look, I don’t know what you want me to say…we recorded this show 36 hours ago and Mike’s the one who writes down all of the topics of discussion.
This week on Nerds United, many topics are discussed. DC finally gave us a trailer for Black Adam (“finally,” despite the movie being four months away, right Mike?). Also, we both forgot Paper Girls on Amazon was a thing, and were surprised with some preliminary stills.
Kevin Smith is getting another bite of the Masters of the Universe apple. The internet reacted predictably.
The Sandman is also coming to Netflix.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a brilliant show, better than Stranger Things. That’s why Best Friend of the Show Josh is all caught up on one and not the other.
Also, Ms. Marvel debuted to a massive social media push. And Greg can only hope that the more diverse shows and movies which attract a more diverse audience mean that more people will GO BUY COMIC BOOKS! But Mike raises the question…does Marvel care any more about comic book sales?
We do have a little fun at the end, where we take one Marvel hero and one DC hero and put them together in a Lethal Weapon type of pair.
This week’s episode was recorded mere hours before Obi-Wan Kenobi was released, so there are absolutely zero spoilers in this episode.
We do talk about the first look at Andor, which was given to us last week, as well as some images of the new Blue Beetle. There was also an odd call in LA LA Land for body doubles for Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudeikis, which led to rumors of the actor to be attached to the Blue Beetle movie. However, seems like Mike squashed those rumors.
And last week, of course, we got the first full trailer (and what Greg hopes is the last trailer) for Thor: Love and Thunder.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg both spent some time watching Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers movie this weekend and were pleasantly surprised by it, especially all of the crossovers into other intellectual properties.
Also, in the last week or so we, the viewing public, were given five different trailers for upcoming shows. She-Hulk, Cobra Kai, The Winchesters, The Boys, and The Umbrella Academy. The guys take a few minutes on each show and gauge anticipation.
Finally, well, actually firstly in the timeline of the show, Greg gives an update on some of the comics he’s been reading. Good enjoyable works, one and all.
This week on a brand new Nerds United, Greg has a slight existential crisis about growing older and possibly aging out of comic books. As he says in the show, if he retired tomorrow he’d have enough to read to keep him busy for a long time. But we do talk about comics we’re reading.
Greg then tried to sell Mike on Avatar by telling him it is like Dances with Wolves. Not sure how successful that is.
We also talk about the Green Lantern animated feature trailer that came out.
This week on Nerds United, Mike gives updates on the comics he has finished reading while Greg is still working on the same one. Also, shows in their decline were cancelled by the CW and a good director left a high-profile job.
If that’s not enough, we recorded this episode in between our two hosts watching Doctor Strange 2 – In the Multiverse of Madness. And the MCU boss says “golly gee, maybe we showed too much in the trailers.”
This week on the Nerds Untied Podcast, Mike and Greg are eagerly awaiting Doctor Strange. We’re also over the excessive amount of footage and leaks and reports about the movie. It’s getting to the point that you can’t be on the internet two weeks before the movie hits theaters.
Also – Mike finished reading Marvel’s Avengers vs X-Men and thinks it could be an MCU storyline someday. Also, Ghostbusters Afterlife is getting a sequel, as is The Batman (color us surprised).
And while it’s not in the featured photo, we do spend a few minutes at the outset talking about Neal Adams, considered by many to be the GOAT of comic book artists, who passed away the day we recorded. What a life and what a legacy.
In this episode, Mike and Greg do some of the usual news and notes, but then the guys piggyback off of an idea from the recent Oscars. No, no slaps here. But the Oscars recently introduced a fan-choice category of favorite cheers, and we had some disagreements with that list, so we came up with our own.
This week on Nerds United, Greg snuck his oldest out of school Friday to take him to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – and it’s an enjoyable flick.
Mike watched some stuff this week, as did Greg. The guys also talk about the upcoming end of Locke and Key as well as Chace Crawford, The Deep on The Boys, wondering if he’s going to be able to find work again after the third season of The Boys.
And of course, we talked about the second episode of Moon Knight.
This week on the podcast, Mike and Greg talk about Mike’s most recent trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) as well as Greg’s trip to the tailor (think Kingsman Tailor but less death…more shame).
Greg also did some reading in the last week. And the guys talk about Wrestlemania. We’re sorry, Kevin, we know that’s your realm. Also, Greg had a scare with the final episodes of Blue Mountain State, but that situation sorted itself out.
Moon Knight is LIVE! We discuss that first episode a little bit. And in a surprise turn, GREG SAW MORBIUS! AND HE LIKED IT! He gets into spoilers, but…also talks about what he likes about the movie and some of the familiar Marvel tropes.
Not for Greg. Greg had seen the movie. And we don’t talk about The Batman until the end of the show. So if you’re interested in hearing about Sonic 2 or Ms. Marvel or The Boys or what Greg acquired at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL), please listen to the first 50 or so minutes of the show. We definitely provide ample warning when The Batman talk is coming along.
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk a little bit about several topics, including Warner/DC adjusting its theatrical release schedule, affecting several upcoming and anticipated films.
Also, on the heels of The Batman tearing it up in theaters, HBO Max has ordered a limited series for Colin Farrell’s The Penguin. Meanwhile, there are two Pinocchio’s coming to streaming services this year, and Mike says to avoid the Pinocchio from 2019.
We got an Obi-Wan trailer and a poster for the third season of The Boys (less than 24 hours after we recorded the podcast, we got a trailer for The Boys Season 3 – c’est la vie).
This week on Nerds United, we talk about some of what we’ve read lately (or plan to read). And Greg managed to watch ALL of The Guardians of Justice on Netflix (Mike watched one or two episodes).
Also, one of us made it to the theater to watch The Batman. And that person really enjoyed it. It’s very well done, with little to no extra stuff. It truly is Matt Reeves’ vision come to life. And Robert Pattinson is a tremendous Batman.
The guys discuss the new trailers for Morbius and Secrets of Dumbledore. And they round out the episode with a short conversation about unnecessary sequels.
This week on Nerds United, we hear some updates about Greg’s family’s recent household stomach sickness. Mike also provides us with an update on the service work that his vehicle(s) needed.
Both of the guys had a chance to do some reading this week, with Mike getting started on Marvel’s The Ultimates. Greg read WE LIVE from Aftershock Comics. So amazing! Greg loves finding independent works that really stand out.
Plus there’s talk about The Batman and Spider-Man.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike are hanging out in person to talk about some comics they’ve read, as well as comics they are eager to read (new stuff expected this year from Stephanie Phillips, one of our favorites).
This week on the show, Mike and Greg start with talking about Dairy Queen and Taco Bell, and the world famous chili cheese burrito.
On the subject of Taco Bell, the one time exclusive home of Baja Blast Mt. Dew, the soda is going HARD…as in Baja Blast Hard Seltzer. So be looking for that if you want the taste of Baja Blast Mt. Dew to be ruined forever.
Now, Ron Perlman is willing to do Hellboy 3, even if he’s not particularly eager. After all, he’s 71 years old.
Peter Dinklage was a guest on a much more popular podcast and shared his opinion on Disney’s live action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. So that sparks a discussion that you’re probably not going to want to miss.
In this episode, Mike and Greg discuss and rank the nine Marvel productions we received in 2021. Then Greg shares what comic story he completed as well as what else he acquired from Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL).
There’s some Peacemaker discussion in the portion of the show we called the Intermission.
And then the guys rank the ten DC/Marvel movies we’re scheduled to get in 2022 in order of least to most anticipation.
As always, we hope you enjoy the show. And feel free to share it with others.
Don’t let the name fool you…we talk about a lot more than Cobra Kai. We talk about Morbius being pushed back again (get ready for that April Fool’s Joke). We talk about high school memories and work meetings. And perhaps for the first time, we talk about the ongoing pandemic, not in a debate about masks and vaccines, but rather sharing memories or lack thereof from the last two years.
And then we talk about Season 4 of Cobra Kai.
And honestly, in any other world outside of the Karate Kid/Cobra Kai universe, is karate that popular in high school? Is it the “go to/must see” event for high schoolers?
This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about:
the Sonic 2 trailer
the latest Fantastic Beasts trailer
the Cobra Kai season 4 trailer
Mike is reading circles around Greg
a little show called Arcane
And then…SPOILERS GALORE for Spider-Man No Way Home. You have been warned. But if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you can still enjoy the first half of the show because all the Spidey-talk is at the end of the show.
It’s time to celebrate that annual tradition of Turkey Before Turkey. This episode, Mike and Greg do just that. Then the guys talk about some dinosaurs via the first few minutes of Jurassic World: Dominion. Also there’s a new trailer for DC League of Super-Pets, which some online claim is the tipping point of saturation for Dwayne Johnson. Mike has an opinion on that.
And the boys certainly talk about the new show that just dropped on Disney+, that being Hawkeye. The first two episodes are available and both guys had the opportunity to watch them. Should be a fun little show.
This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike break down all of the info we got from Disney+ Day, from the shows we were told were coming to the teaser trailers we were given, to the movies that dropped on 11/12.
Greg finally saw Shang Chi. The guys both watched Home Sweet Home Alone. And Jungle Cruise? Well, we’ll get to that.
Then Mike and Greg briefly touch on Red Notice, as Greg hadn’t finished it by the recording.
Also, Tom Hanks gave his top-three movies of his, so we’re prepping our top five Tom Hanks movies for next week.
This week on Nerds United, we are celebrating for our 250th episode. Mike is IN THE HOUSE and we’re talking about trailers for everything from He-Man to Buzz Lightyear, plus much more! Locke & Key, a little bit of Dune, Brooklyn 99, and Castlevania!
And it’s our 250th episode, so we recall when Mike came aboard and how without him we would probably only be at 150 episodes.
