The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse is back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast about exploring the culture created by comic books. This week Robbie and Ben throwback to a previous episode and read some fan submissions for #ExplainAComicBookBadly. They also discuss some of the recent biggest headlines hitting the comic world and discuss HBO Max teaming up with Warner Brothers to finish the Snyder Cut of Justice League.
A few weeks ago Robbie and Ben started the trend on Twitter for fans and creators alike to #ExplainAComicBookBadly. To start the show-off, they read a few submissions from fans on the CheckpointXP Twitter account. They also talk a bit about their read-through of #InBlackestNight.
The past few months have contained quite a few big headlines for comics fans, despite a lot of distributors halting production. That includes the release of the animated movie Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, which marks the end of the DC Comics Animated Universe. James Gunn also teased that someone major would die in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Plus, Henry Cavill announces he will be returning the DC Comics Cinematic Universe as Superman.
The Snyder Cut
The other big news shaking the comic book world is that HBO Max, a new streaming platform for HBO will release the Snyder Cut, or rather help to finish it. The Snyder Cut isn’t actually done and HBO estimates it would take some $30 Million dollars to finish it. Robbie and Ben are joined by a new member of The Other Identity team, Kevin Kelly, to discuss what this means across the board for the world of superhero fans.
