The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Mar 11, 2019

We bring in the big, smart guns this time to review Captain Marvel on The Movie Defenders podcast! GM Chris of The Order 66 Podcast, and GM Hooly of The Dicepool Podcast join hosts Scott and Donald to unpack the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Before we do that we have fun with the Top 5 sidekicks in movies, and then we have a deep dive with the experts about how to get super heroes into your Genesys games! Then we give a non-spoiler review if you haven't seen the movie, and then we unpack a LOT about the film. How were the special effects and action sequences? How did Brie Larson do as Captain Marvel? What about the new Nick Fury we saw? Did the movie get across what it was trying to? We discuss it all! We even have an interview with Scott's daughter, who was the target audience for the film.  So go grab your cat, put on your laser tag suit, and put on some Nirvana... it's time for Captain Marvel!
