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.

Regardless of your feelings towards the last season of Game of Thrones, with this cultural behemoth now gone, its left a Tormund sized hole in our hearts as well as our Sunday evening TV watching schedule. Well, like the title says, we got more for that hole! The Beta Bros have scoured the annals of entertainment to find several shows we’re looking forward to seeing. Shows that we think you’ll love and could potentially cram content into that giant gap GOT left us with.
Oh and we also can’t leave without talking about the new, shiny and sparkly announcement: We’ve got a new Batman. Is it who we would have picked? Is it an inspired choice? Will history repeat itself and will an odd casting choice actually turn out to be one of the greatest depictions of the caped crusader? So many questions…but, we’ve got your answers on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
Lets all just take a collective deep breath…Ok, so Disney really does own everything doesn’t it?

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.

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.

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.

We’re all saddened by the sudden—yet expected—news that The Punisher and Jessica Jones are now officially cancelled. The general consensus is that they’ll more than likely return on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+ due out later this year (presumably in the fall). So, with Disney making a push at the streaming service game and Hulu as well as Amazon Prime releasing great original content, is Netflix a sinking ship doomed to go under? Is there enough original content on Netflix’s roster to keep you on their service? Are they doing a good enough job of supplementing what’s leaving with something as good and/or better? The Beta Boys tackle all these questions and more, including a review of one of those original series: The Umbrella Academy.
Plus another New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…except on Friday. All that an so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
Seldom do we take the time to honor the men who shaped our country and liberated us from the oppressive tyranny of foreign and domestic threats…to a degree. Yes, these men aren’t perfect and some aren’t even competent, but what they undeniably are, are the building blocks for compelling and entertaining movie characters. With that said, in honor of President’s Day, The Beta Boys give you the TOP 3 American Movie Presidents. You’ll be surprised at some of our choices.
Also, we play a little game called “Who Said It?” featuring none other than the inspiration for many movie characters—good and bad—President Donald Trump and a slew of movie villains, cartoon characters, and celebrities. “God Bless America, and nowhere else!”
