DC for all its rich lore, storied history, and decades of comic book triumphs, is still trying to find its way out of Marvel Studio’s shadow. But, with the recent success of movies like Shazam! and Aquaman and the criminally underrated DC Universe slate of shows including Doom Patrol, DC is finally starting to dig itself out of the murky stinking bog of mediocrity and public appeal. Couple that with all of the upcoming DC projects headed our way like: James Gunn’s Suicide Squad, Joaquin Phoenix’s The Joker, and the Robert Pattinson led Batman movie, I think it was time for TBR to break out The DC Talk! Are you down? Stay tuned to find out what we think about all of the upcoming DC projects and the pruned, sheered, and cancelled Swamp Thing. All that and so much more on this week’s episode of, The Beta Report.

The new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was just released and its amazing. Its so great, it even needed its own Spoiler Warning for Avengers: Endgame. That alone should tell you how important the events of FFH will be for the MCU moving forward as our heroes try to piece their world (…and/or Universe…dimension?!?!) back together. We got all of your theories, predictions, and nitty gritty geeky details that you might have missed. So, take a deep dive into the Spider-verse with us and lets try to climb our way out of this spider’s web together, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
Last week completely wrecked us. With Game of Thrones’ Battle of Winterfell and Avengers: Endgame both premiering in the same week, our poor little hearts could barely contain themselves. But, after 11 years, 21 movies later, its all led us to this [Cue the Avengers Theme song in your mind]: ENDGAME! We’ve got your spoiler filled review HERE, so listeners beware. We are leaving it all on the wire and we discuss who laid their life down on it and didn’t make it out alive. All that and so much more, on this special episode of The Beta Report.
Guys…we’re in the endgame now. And, that’s not just in reference to the new Avengers movie, but for all movies and how we enjoy watching them. The Infinity Saga has completely redefined our movie going experience and the sheer thought of what the MCU/Marvel Studios has been able to accomplish is amazing. To put it plainly, there has been at least one marvel movie in theaters for the past 11 years!!! So, for that, we’re not only going to talk about Endgame, we also want to take the time to celebrate the saga and look back at the last 11 years/21 movies and recount some of our favorite characters, moments, quotes, etc. All leading to our Endgame Prep. You don’t want to miss this episode.
Captain Marvel is here and The Beta Bros have your spoiler-filled review of our cosmic avenger. The Kon, Uno, and Jay breakdown the movie and look forward past End Game and theorize what Captain Marvel means for the MCU moving forward. You wont believe this theory we came up with…can a secret invasion still be in the works? You’re gonna have to listen to find out.
Ladies and Gentlemen, The Beta Report is proud to present…THE RANDOM TOPIC GENERATOR. [Cue cheesy game show music!!!]
The Beta Bros wanted to shake things up this episode. Instead of having a set agenda, we took several random topics that we each wanted to talk about, through them into our high-tech Random Topic Generator, and just let it rip! It goes from Joker to Candyman and Ted Bundy to…Miss Bala?!?! This show is going to be bonkers.
In case you guys haven’t heard, GLASS has made more than $100 Million Dollars in the box office to date. It only took $20 Million to make. That’s insane! But, it is good though? Did we really need this trilogy 18 years after Unbreakable first burst onto the scene? And the twists…were they effective or is it all just played out now? The Beta Bros take a deep dive into M. Night Shyamalan’s introspection of the superhero genre to give you guys their impressions, likes, and dislikes.
We also talk about Glass’ main competition last weekend with the return of our favorite gun wielding vigilante Frank Castle in Netflix’s The Punisher, Season 2. Jay also gives his thoughts on the third season of the HBO thriller: True Detective. Its a packed show!
Plus, the return of the New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…except when its on Friday! All of this, and so much more on today’s episode of The Beta Report.
No, this isn’t the Beta Report’s new NBA-centric podcast about great rebounders in NBA history. It’s just a clever title. Although, that would be a pretty great idea. File away for later (Patent Pending)…This is however one of those moments where the universe just aligns things for you perfectly and you have no choice but to bring it to light: Punisher+Glass=Jigsaw…this stuff writes itself!
Anyway, on today’s episode the Beta Boy’s preview two of their most anticipated releases of 2019: The Punisher Season 2 and M. Night Shyamalan’s GLASS! There are a lot of things on the line for these two releases, like is M. Night Shyamalan’s resurgence for real or is he destined to fall back into mediocrity? And, is The Punisher the next Marvel Netflix show in the cancellation cross-hairs no matter how great it is? We answer all of these questions and give our thoughts regarding the poor reviews and terrible Rotten Tomatoes score GLASS has right now…35%!!! YIKES.
All that and so much more on this Friday edition of The Beta Report.
Spider-Man: Far From Home has just released its first trailer. Just in time for The Beta Report to rip it to shreds and give you every little detail you might have missed, like: Is Mysterio a wizard from Kamar Taj, where Dr. Strange also learned his magic? Is that the Spider-Noir suit? Is this a different Spider-verse? We also build up a few theories, re-work timelines, and travel to different dimensions…SUPER NERD STUFF! We’re getting all up in it. Any questions you might have, I’m sure we’ve got the answers. We’ve got all that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
To the man, the myth, the legend…this episode is dedicated to the late great Stan Lee. Listen as The Beta Bros talk about the legend’s life and his impact on popular culture.
I guess one person, can make a difference.
What if Samuel L. Jackson is the most powerful human/mutant/hero/villain we’ve ever known? Could he be the key to bridging all franchises together? Is his super power being in every movie known to man? Find out in today’s brand new episode, where we talk about his upcoming movie: GLASS.
The Beta Boy’s also talk about Iron Fist getting KO’d and cancelled on Netflix, plus a new TOP 5. All this and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

Well, don't fret! The Beta Report has your golden ticket to a perfect entertainment filled weekend!

Over the last ten years, Marvel Studios has carefully crafted and produced an unstoppable Universe that continues to expand and dominate the entertainment world. We all know and love our Marvel heroes. Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, the Hulk...But, has anyone ever heard of Russell Sprouts & Copeye?!?! No! Because this is the birth of new characters from a new Cinematic Universe. One that will destroy the DCEU. One that will Completely overtake the MCU. One Universe that will stand alone when the dust has settled: THE CLIMACTIC UNO CINEMATIC UNIVERSE (CUCU)!
This episode will not only have your favorite segments like GO/NO GO, or our TOP 5 Rundown, but it will also have our reactions to the brand new Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

Okay, that is about as punny as I can get without throwing up. But, this is our show in a nutshell. We review the CW's brand new super hero show Black Lightning's first episode. Are the characters compelling? Is the villain a real threat? Is this show Beta Approved? You'll have to listen to find out.
And, as the CW universe of DC characters continues to expand, we discuss what movie or TV universe we'd most like to live in. Would Uno like to live in the MCU to assume his secret super hero identity: Pun Man? Would the Kon want to meet the alternate Khan in the Star Trek Universe? Am I going to Never-land so that I can really be Forever Five?!? You'll just have to listen to find out.

Namely, the appearance of Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, his stand-alone movie, The Legion of Doom, and the DCEU’s future. We also had to talk about Kevin Feige’s most recent comments about Avengers 4, and the most certain end of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Who will we see in the next phase?
