ComicsVerse’s THE GIFTED After Show Episode 1: The Gift Gets Real

Fox titled THE GIFTED recently premiered. Set in a timeline where the X-Men have disappeared, THE GIFTED follows mutant siblings Lauren and Andy Strucker as they and their family flee the government and join forces with an underground group of mutants.

In the first episode of ComicsVerse’s THE GIFTED After Show, we discuss THE GIFTED’s take on the political and poignant themes the X-Men is known for. We talk about the cast and their performances and dig into the nature of the superhero genre in TV and film. THE GIFTED also features established mutants like Polaris, Blink, and Thunderbird, who contribute to the show’s greatest strengths.

Comic Timing Episode 156 – X-Men: Days of Future Past

xmen-days-of-future-past

To me, my X-Men! Kris joins Ian for a late night conversation on the latest movie in the up and down X-Men franchise of movies, X-Men: Days of Future Past. We go into what makes this one work, what could have been done a little bitter, the retcon oh the retcon, the diversity of new characters, new meeting old, Rogue’s deleted scenes, the very end of the movie and what’s to come, and the X-franchise trying to play nice with Fantastic Four. And Sentinels outside of a Danger Room sequence! Woo!

We also make random deviations to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Dinklage’s attempt at a voice-acting career (“That Wizard Came From The Moon“), Tumblr, and more.
