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.

Apr 8, 2019

It's time to venture into the DCEU with magic and talk about Shazam! With Donald on his way to Star Wars Celebration, we didn't want to leave this great flick alone, so Donald's brother Drew pinch hits and helps Scott break down this amazing movie. We play almost 20 clips from the film as we unpack this fantastic chapter of the DCEU. Add on a discussion of Zack Snyder's recent interview about his original Justice League plans and a break down of the top 5 super hero battles of all time, and you have a DC themed show to make even Zeus proud! So, grab magical staffs, collect your family, but don't put that demon ball in your heads... and lets talk some Shazam!  (And there's proof Kevin Hart is a Movie Defender!)
