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 22, 2021

It's here! The film DC fans have waited years for has arrived: Zack Snyder's Justice League! We unpack this gem in a way only we can, by analyzing the story, moments, and reasons for everything. We play lots of scenes from the film and dissect them. Helping us along is long-time friend of the show, Alex Kirkby, who adds his DC fanboy experience to the discussion. Before we talk the movie, however, we take time to discuss our Top 5 moments of the DCEU! (Well, maybe way more than that.) Then it's time to crash headlong into this incredible 4 hour epic. So grab your black suit, don't forget things get weird when you get close to the speed of light, and #RestoretheSnyderverse... it's time for the proper Justice League!

This episode of the Movie Defenders podcast is dedicated to the memory of Michael Athey. If you or anyone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention at
