Zone 4 #255: New Classic

It’s “New Classic” as Cary Kelley and Frank Raynor make their official debut as full co-hosts along with John and Brant. Technical issues abound, just like classic Zone 4, and hilarity ensues. It’s a touch of RaynMan, free-flowing classic Zone 4, and our usual brand of insanity!

We discuss the Superbowl commercials, including the trailers for Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Transformers: Age of Extinction. And we break down a couple of lists we came across ranking the X-Men and Justice League.

Finally, the guys wrap things up with some announcements.
