RIP, Batfleck. So, Who's Next?

RIP, Batfleck. So, Who's Next?

To the most homicidal iteration of Batman we’ve ever seen…we bid you farewell. As we say goodbye to Ben Affleck, our cleft chin crusader, we ask the one question on everyone’s mind: So, who’s next? Who can or should step into the cape and cowl and be the next Batman?

We also step into another dimension, where time stops and TV shows no longer get rebooted. The Beta Boys react to Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the horror/sci-fi classic The Twilight Zone. There’s also a report about LOST getting the reboot treatment. But, do we need it though? We take a look at the upcoming reboots and we also offer up some of our suggestions for some reboots that we’d love to see. All that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

2019 Oscar Noms: Will Oscar Trade His Gold For Vibranium?

The 2019 Oscar nominations were revealed this week. Movies ranging from Netflix Originals to the powerhouse studio mainstays were all well represented in every category of this year’s noms. But, none more surprising than Black Panther receiving a Best Picture nomination. Will Oscar trade his gold for vibranium and award Marvel’s smash hit with Hollywood’s highest honor? Would an Oscar win lend any further validity to comic book movies as not just “good fun” but also great films? The Beta Bros discuss this year’s nerd-filled Oscar nominations and discuss whether Hollywood is finally acknowledging comic book movies as culture defining films.

We talk all this and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

Late to The Party: Movies We May Have Missed, But You Shouldn't!

Like with most things, it wouldn't really be The Beta Report if we weren't fashionably late...TO EVERYTHING! It's kind of our calling card. And though, timing is a factor for a movie's current relevance and impact, a great movie can always be judged by its timelessness and transcendent qualities. So, we've tirelessly scoured the pantheon of great movies that may have passed us by and compiled a few interesting choices of movies and TV shows that we missed on their initial release, but we highly suggest you watch. We're just a little late to the party, but the party never really gets started until we arrive. #TheBetaReportEffect #ItsReal

Also, we got a brand new PICK OF THE WEEK that is neither tame nor ordinary in any way.

Cardi Beta Bros: Cha'Ching!

There's no better way to prime your way to the weekend than a little Cardi B and your favorite Podcast hosts trying to sing the words to a song they don't know. Let's get it!

Nothing says Cardi B and the weekend more than...Disney movies? That's right, from Cardi B to Disney Princesses to Live Action Disney Classic Remakes, this episode has a little bit of everything, for everyone. We discuss the new wave of female representation in Disney movies and we also give our first impressions of the live action Mulan movie and the first look at the titular character that was recently released.

Plus, as always, we have a killer new batch of recommendations for this week's PICK OF THE WEEK, and so much more.

Who is The New Box Office Champ?

Who is The New Box Office Champ?

Arnold schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, Will Smith...these titans ruled over all other actors for years at the box office. At the height of their powers, their draw at the box office was pretty undeniable. People flocked to movies that starred any one of these guys and we were all happy to throw money at their feet. But, as Marvel and the rise of comic book movies have sort of monopolized over the box office, which one actor could be the next Box Office Champ? Well, The Beta Report throws down in the ring and drop kicks each other's choices until one contender is left standing!

We also have a brand new TOP 5, which includes Acri-mo-nee..Ah-cri-mo-nye...You know what we're saying. A new cataclysmic GO/NO GO featuring a box office champion contender, and, as always, a new PICK OF THE WEEK. We've got all that, and...SO MUCH MORE. Keep it locked here for a new episode of The Beta Report.
