As it’s currently reached the billion dollar behemoth status, Avengers: Endgame, sequel to Avengers: Infinity War (both directed by brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo) is the stamped culmination marking 11 years of cinematic triump and world building by Marvel Studios. With great pleasure and delight, TBC_afp reviews this massive film chronicling World’s Mightiest Heroes, thus closing a monumental chapter yet making room for some new stories… until next time we hear the battlecry: #AVENGERSASSEMBLE
A famous writer once penned the line “What's in a name? That which we call a rose; By any other name would smell as sweet” in order to evoke the idea that what really counts isn’t just how a thing is labeled. Rather that true heroic significance and character comes from within or that our actions define us. In SHAZAM!, starring Zachary Levi as DC Comic’s sometimes anti-Superman analog and child’s-eye-view superhero commentary (commonly know through the source material as Captain Marvel), WB/ DC Cinematic Universe attempts to deliver at the Box Office again at the wake of Aqua-success, The World's Mightiest Mortal. Follow TBC_afp as they take that leap of faith and call out SHAZAM!
It is Marvel Studio’s tenth anniversary “phase” build up and we are introduced to Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. With actress Brie Larsen portraying the character lead as Marvel’s biggest heavy, there is without hesitation both excitement from fans and controversy at a trolling level. While, a week into Captain Marvel’s theatrical release and already a half billion dollars at the box office, it’s safe to assume the franchise’s security though conversations, sometime ignited by inspiration or gender politics rages on...
Originally recorded on December of 2018, TBC_afp and invited Guests got together for discussion about a special fanboy topic spanning close to 60 decades. As the subject has been referred to as “The Oncoming Storm”, “The Bringer of Darkness” or “Last of the Time Lords”, this Hero is usually (and humbly) referred to as The Doctor. So, if you’ve been living under a rock either of recent or for the past 56 years still asking “Doctor Who?”, whether you’re a diehard Whovian or just a fair weather fan, then prepare some tea (with perhaps some fish fingers and gravy, biscuits even) as we traverse through Time and Space celebrating The Doctor of BBC’s Doctor Who.

Jon Bernthal may not be The Man in The High Castle (a reference to actress, Alexa Davalos’ two episode cameo) and that is because he is THE MAN WHO IS Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, Marvel’s judge, jury and executioner vigilante featured on Netflix. TBC_afp take another dive into the dramatic second season and final conclusion.
As they say in Lego Bricksburg, “Everything Is Awesome” especially when it’s Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, Sony’s runaway animated hit originally conceived by LEGO The Movie’s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller based on Marvel’s friendly neighborhood flagship web head.
We at TBC_afp never fully considered reviewing this spectacle of a film fully casted with big names such as Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali and Nick Cage if not for the word of buzz. But we did it! So now, swing back into podcast mode and enjoy!

The gritty despair begins to set yet again in belly of Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Yes, all… 25 blocks of gentrification, a metaphor for crime and corruption only it’s not metaphor but literal in a Netflix sense. As the third season picks up, what’s to come of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil who continues on his crusade against The Kingpin? As if Dinosaur Dragons and Zombie Ninja weren’t enough.

Also in this episode, Anthony Bourdain: In Memoriam.
Episode was recorded in June of 2018.
How would Ant-Man’s best buddy, Luis (Michael Peña) describe this podcast episode in his own words?
“…So there’s like this podcast, its called TBC afp, I mean, afp actually stands for a fanboy podcast. They start off the show by saying: ‘You might not learn anything right… but if you stick around, you just might have some fun’ and I’m like ‘word’ and the co-host and the producer was like ‘word’, Then they start talking stuff about the new Ant-Man and The Wasp movie which is more of follow up to Infinity War because Scott and Hope were a no show but then people disappeared and started turning to a………”
By the time the release of this podcast episode, Marvel Studio’s Black Panther would have already scored huge both critically and at the box office (passing $500 million just after 9 days of release). Our TBC_afp triumvirate along with special guest, Grammy award winning producer and sound engineer, “Bassy” Bob Brockmann take a deep dive journey into the cultural impact and significance of Black Panther.

Riddle me this? What do Morgan Freeman from Lean on Me, Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey and almost eight decades of fictional history have in common? Well, the answer is “Batman”, of course, but that doesn’t mean you ought to be shoving Spaghetti into any (“Bat”) Computer in the name of detective work.

Sit tight, get comfortable with some Bat-milk and cookies (yes, the same ones from Scooby Doo) and tune in for a great Bat-Time.
Since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the internet has turned into a battlefield pitting fanboys against one another.
Some are praising Rian Johnson’s directorial installment chronicling the continuing adventures of Rey, Finn & Poe and the return of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, while others are flat out condemning TJL for ruining their childhood.
TBC a fanboy podcast, in an effort to follow up on their spoiler review show, have gathered a cast of special guests for their fanboy/fan girl input...

What’s 6’4”, bearded, has a gnarly eyebrow scar and is married to Lisa Bonet? Only that which capsizes all of our manhoods combined here at TBC a fanboy podcast but prior to casting Jason Momoa in Aquaman, Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC epic, this fish talking King of the Seven Seas has endured a long and complex history. TBC a fanboy podcast deep dives (pun intended) again along “The Road to Justice”, profiling each member of The Justice League as portrayed cinematically on the big screen for the very first time. Additionally in discussion, Victor Stone AKA Cyborg, though traditionally a (Teen) Titan by affiliation, also make his cinematic debut as one of “The Six”. Join our TBC fanboys as they come together covering what may potentially be very exciting properties for the DC Cinematic Universe.
Gathered together from remote corners of the world are some of the most passionate individuals of all time: TBC (a fanboy podcast)! Dedicated to a single objective- releasing edgy but not offensive apolitical media infotainment content hopefully, toward scoring some lucrative corporation sponsorship, enough to at least break even. But what do The TBCers Three think of the highly anticipated Justice League movie? Will they cry outrage at Henry Cavill’s #MUSTACHEGATE ? Does Zack Synder take a page from Sir Michael Caine and bury another Batman? (Steve Coogan’s The Trip. Look it up….) Are there actual Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, El Dorado & Samurai Easter Eggs that we missed in the movie?
