James Gunn returns to the corner of the MCU he created! Elliott, Jon, Dave and Tom welcome writer Saurav Mohapatra to discuss what happens when a groundbreaking director makes a film that doesn’t surprise its audience, Gunn’s recurring theme of bad fathers and how the MCU is a step towards Peacemaker. Also, Marvel can afford a Beatle, adapting Kirby to real actors and cramming a ton of 80s action heroes into a movie that is not “The Expendables”. [EP297]
