Eps 162 – Captain America: Civil War

It’s hero against hero in Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR as the star spangled hero, Steve Rogers, goes up against Tony Stark (Iron Man) over the Sokovia Accords as the future of the Avengers hangs in the balance. The Grue-crew welcome artist Chad Hunt and award winning filmmaker Christopher G. Moore to the show to discuss the runaway block buster hit, the highlights, the action, the suspense and the surprises – and, of course, the big wink to Star Wars and the introduction of a certain web-head to the MCU. It may not be straight up horror this week, but it is still a hell of a lot of fun!

Dave returns to illuminate the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing information about Russell Crowe joining Tom Cruise in Universal’s The Mummy, Jared Leto leads the short list for the role of Lestat in the Interview with the Vampire remake and Hèctor Hernández Vicens signs on to direct another version of Day of the Dead. Plenty of WTF moments!
