Answering mailbag questions largely defending the DCCU and first reactions to the Suicide Squad cast photo.
This episode was recorded in two segments, the first just hours after watching Avengers: The Age of Ultron then as that was about to be published, David Ayer released our first look at the cast of Suicide Squad in costume, driving Doc to skip sleep, sanity, and stability to serve some speedy reactions in a subsequent second session.
Some of the topics in this episode:
- Reaction to THR article: Does the DCCU need direction from a producer mastermind now?
