Justin Halpern, the co-creator of the Harley Quinn animated show on HBO Max, ignited a heated online debate earlier this week when he told Variety he was asked to cut a scene from the show where Batman goes down on Catwoman because “heroes don’t do that.”
In response, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle spend the bulk of this week’s show setting the record straight on which members of the Justice League and Avengers do it and which ones don’t.
Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss the latest Justice League trailer, an annoying musical trend in recent films (including Spiderman: Homecoming) and how dated The Ring now seems (as well as how amazing Brian Cox is in that film).
Lars also gives you all a new “Person You Should Know” – Debbie Evans, a Hollywood stunt driver with a 40-year career that includes the Matrix films, the Fast and the Furious franchise and Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Has Joel ever hung out with Liam Neeson? Why does every rebellious teen listen to “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys? What is Blade Runner about? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
Interstitial – “Fanfare Jingle 2 (ID 413)” by Lobo Loco
