In BIll’s first visit to the show in 2020, our original topic of the history of calendars was quickly abandoned, and we decided to take a look at some of the new superhero movies coming up this year. Topics included New Mutants nightmares, Disney’s no-no naughty words, a gentler & cuddlier Venom, and Wonder Woman moping out to The Smiths. Plus: Black Widow’s big payday, and Colin Jost punches everything up.Follow @bigwakeupcall
Bill McCormick from the World News Center called in for his weekly segment where we proceeded to talk about unnecessary Disney remakes, unnamed future Marvel movies, unneeded humble bragging, and unrealistic chances of portraying Namor.
