This week X-Men Apocalypse landed with a thud equal to several tons of ferrous metal being ripped out of the ground and dropped from the sky by a once good, then evil, then good again, then evil with justifiable motivation, mutant with magnetic powers. If you can't picture that then you have likely missed most of the X-Men films to date. In a rare case of near total agreement the Regular Joes weigh in with their take on, depending on how you count, the 10th, 6th or 3rd X-Men film in this cycle. Also, The Longbox and a Hot Toys Minute. Warning: this episode contains SPOILERS and a larger than average helping of indifference. Thanks for listening!

Superhero films are a mixed bag. Perhaps nothing illustrates this better than the contrast between Fantastic Four (2015) and Deadpool (2016), the two most recent Marvel Comic based films developed outside of Marvel Studios. Why did one film become a runaway success while the other a very expensive failure? Is it good decision making by the respective producers, writers and directors? Or is just possible that some properties just can’t make the transition to live action successfully? Opinions vary. Note: this episode contains SPOILERS . . . for two films released months ago. Also: Random Topics and What’s in the Box. Thanks for listening.

In the long-awaited superhero matchup of the year, or at least the month of March, Batman v. Superman hit theaters this past week. Critics and fans reactions are widely varied, in this episode the Regular Joe's weigh in. Does Bat–Affleck meet or exceed expectations? Does "Dawn of Justice" provide a stable foundation for Warner Bros. to build their own comic movie empire? And, can a bad interpretation of Lex Luther be overshadowed by an awesome Wonder Woman? Add to this a quick review of the (less polarizing) Supergirl / Flash crossover, the usual Random Topics, a Hot Toys minute, a Batmobile centric round of What's in the Box and you have episode #136. WARNING this episode contains an excess of SPOILERS and table pounding.
