About This List

MechaDragon's episodes that focus on the movies made from DC comics, their characters, and related topics.
  1. Captain Geek (Will) and the Dark Nerd (Jes) are back with a non-spoilery review of SHAZAM! followed by a spoiler-filled review & discussion of the movie. Will & Jes also discuss how Shazam used to be named Captain Marvel, and the convoluted history of how characters in Marvel comics ended up with the name instead of Billy Batson’s superhero alter-ego.

  2. Season 3 of MechaDragon begins with an in-depth discussion of JOKER, with returning guest Eric Hanson. We start with a very brief NON-Spoiler review, followed by a spoiler-heavy discussion. Topics include: Sympathy for the devil (how the movie generates empathy for one of the most iconic supervillains of all time); Joker controversy and how the film portrays violence; gritty realism in a comic book movie; thoughts on the film's social commentary and how it resonates worldwide; and much more. Also: Is the movie a definitive origin for the Joker? What ACTUALLY happened and what was just in his head? Will Joaquin Phoenix's Joker cross over into other DCEU movies? Which version of the Joker is our favorite, and why? And whose name will Will mispronounce this episode?? Come geek out with us and find out!

  4. Wonder Woman vs. Captain Marvel: Which was the better superheroine movie and why?

  5. Will and Jes kick off the New Year with a discussion of Wonder Woman 1984, with special guest Jessica Marcrum. Topics include: How the development of the film's theme adversely affected the whole story. Max Lord and his defeat: in the comics vs. in the film. Would the movie have been more effective if it had been released a few years ago? Chris Pine's inclusion in the movie. "Body-snatching" Steve Trevor. Plotholes or not-holes? Revealing character in action sequences. "Steve is no punk." A toxic theme? What happened to the stone after Max Lord renounced his wish. The characters who did NOT renounce their wishes. The film's performances. Pedro Pascal's performance, and when "the mask slips." Gaps in the emotional realism of the movie. What made the film's climax less cathartic than it could have been. That post-credits scene. Our top DC comics films. Wonder Woman 1984: the good vs. the not-so-good What if the film had been set AFTER the events of Justice League? Why deleted scenes get deleted from movies.
