This week I talk about how refreshing it is when studios show confidence in their movies, a few of the shows that are keeping me awake at night, and how I felt about Star Wars- A New Hope in the “Make Me a Jedi” segment. As an afterthought, I talk about a little movie from Sony that premiered this week- Spider Man: Far From Home.
Listen to “After The Snap” on Radio Public or your favorite podcast apps!
Today we discuss Disney’s Toy Story 4’s “disappointing” opening weekend, Sony’s (bad news) MIB International BTS DRAMA, Sony’s (good news) Spider Man Far From Home early reviews, the chances of me going to see Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame one more time, and OF COURSE The Make Me A Jedi segment- Rogue One!
In today’s episode we catch up on the rumors surrounding the Swamp Thing cancellation, discuss the season finale of CBS All Access’ Twilight Zone, and continue my path to becoming one with The Force in our Make Me a Jedi segment!

If I’m going to get serious about this Jedi thing, here’s where it starts!
I’m starting with episode 1.
Initially, I thought about going back to 1977 and starting with what was then known as plain old “Star Wars”- but if there’s an episode 1 why not start there? So, I’m excited. It’s the first thing on my “to do list” when I get home from work. If I’m going to get serious about this Jedi thing, here’s where it starts.
To find out how I felt about Episode 1- The Phantom Menace, check out After The Snap the Podcast on Tuesday afternoon. We’ll also be discussing the X-Men franchise and, of course, any pressing news coming out of the Cinematic Multiverse.

On this episode of After The Snap, we talk about everybody’s favorite girl- MAMA!! Who are some of the best, most kick ass mothers/mother figures in the game? Which hero counts on mommy the most (even heroes need that mother love)?
My super power is being a mother, and my alter-ego is “Mom”. If you have the opportunity, squeeze your mom a little tighter today! And, introduce her to After The Snap!
Also, word on the street is Disney has pulled the plug on Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy. The superhero horror film “New Mutants” has had its release pushed- AGAIN! Now it’s set to premiere on April 3, 2020. That’s two years after the original release date of April 2018. James Cameron congratulated Avengers Endgame for passing Titanic in the highest grossing movie category. There were those who thought he would be bitter. The movie was #1 or #2 for two decades. Nothing to be upset about there. Speaking of Avengers Endgame, it will hit Disney + on December 11.
Join me on Tuesday for the next installment of After The Snap! We will cover some news and do some X-Men talk ahead of Dark Phoenix.
PS. I’m still looking for help with explaining the Avenger’s Endgame time travel formula on the podcast. Use the “Contact” tab to volunteer! Oh, the secret word in this episode was “monopoly“!! Thanks for dropping in, I’ll catch you on the flip!!
That MCM doesn’t stand for “Man Crush Monday” either!! Join me as I discuss that SpiderMan Far From Home trailer. I also touch on two comic book movies that I am really looking forward to: Brightburn and Joker! Yeah, I talk about other stuff, too.
Venom’s trailers have seduced me all summer. Those trailers have promised me a wild and dark look into the relationship between Eddie Brock and the symbiote. I’ve been teased with high action and awesome stunts and the Venom symbiote taking over completely when Brock utters the command ” Mask! ”
I’ve been tempted by these trailers, but my expectations aren’t very high. The PG13 rating is a necessary evil if Sony wants to introduce Spidey into the mix at a later time, so I’m not going to harp on that. The real problem is whether this stand alone movie can stand without the Web Head.
I’m also convinced that Venom has shown me all the money shots in the trailers they’ve been tantalizing me with for months. If that turns out to be the case, it’s going to be a long hour and 52 minutes at the theater.
I’ll follow up with my experience after I’ve seen the movie. I just hope that Sony hasn’t put the cart before the horse and ruined the possibilities this character could deliver with his favorite enemy, Spider Man. If this one stinks, I’m not sure we’ll get the rest of the trilogy.
I’ve never really been one to take uncalculated risks. Usually, I take the safest route possible as I navigate through this thing called life. I’m a productive member of society. I keep my head down. I blend in.
For at least ten years I’ve dreamt about coming out of obscurity to pursue a hobby. That hobby is podcasting. For years I told myself that the hobby is too expensive, too time consuming, that I had nothing of importance to say. I believed this for years, but continued to love to listen to podcasts regularly. I spent hours every week listening to people who stepped out and did this thing that brought them joy, while I cowered in the background and made excuses.
Until 2018. This year I celebrated my 45th birthday. Suddenly, the thought of trying something new doesn’t seem so daunting. I had an epiphany in July, then started the wheels to spinning. Lately, I see myself as an unstoppable force. I’m checking items off my list and soon-very soon- I’ll be announcing a date for the premiere of my very own podcast!
After the Snap will dive into the MCU after Thanos’ monumental snap, and will also analyze and over theorize on many cinematic universes. I hope you join me on this new journey!
