#34: One Night In Miami, Greenland, News of the World, WandaVision episodes 5 & 6 The Block Busters Podcast

We know it’s still winter and sometimes it gets a little bit nippy, so we decided to share some of our heat (Is this appropriate? Probably not!) with you, dear listeners. We get fired up from the start over discussing price of TV license, Gina Carano’s social media outburst that costed her a role, Zack Snyder’s Justice League trailer and when reviewing films and – especially – WandaVision. So put your feet up and enjoy! Also, fair warning about VERY explicit language on this episode.   00:00 TV License fee: is it too much? 12:20 News Golden Globe Awards nominations announced Gina Carano will no longer star in ‘The Mandalorian’ Pedro Pascal in ‘The Last of Us’  Disney’s impressive subscription numbers Zack Snyder’s 'Justice League' full trailer!
