X-Reads Podcast geeky fun show

Let’s talk X-Men

It’s always a great time to watch and talk about X-Men the Animated Series that’s been relaunched on Disney+! When you think of Rogue from the classic animated series you hear Lenore Zann who joined the X-Reads Podcast to chat X-Men the Animated Series.

Lenore joined co-hosts Chandler Poling and Chris Riley on Wednesday, November 6th for a recap of Uncanny X-Men #173, It’s the episode where Rogue and Wolverine tore through Japan in hopes of saving the X-Men and Mariko.  It was X-Reads Podcast ninth episode and Zann brought super X-power.  The Uncanny X-Men #173 was the debut of Storm’s mohawk look and it ends with Wolverine’s wedding.  It’s been one of my X-Men fangirl favorites!

ABOUT X-READS PODCAST: Chandler Poling & Chris Riley have been friends for well over a decade and share a fondness for the X-Men, but also have things to say about the early years. Together they read through old issues of Uncanny X-Men recapping the storyline so listeners can follow along while interjecting comments and opinions on the outfits, the questionable dialog, the often odd advertising moments and living for the X-Mail fan letters in the back of the issue. That is what X-Reads is all about. A strong read.

Wonder Woman takes on Silver Swan in the newest DCU Movie

“Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” takes on Silver Swan (Marie Avgeropoulos)

“Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” is the newest film in the popular series of DC Universe Movies produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC. The film has the added bonus of the DC Showcase animated short Death, inspired by Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman”

NYCC had the world premier of Wonder Woman: Bloodlines with Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman), Marie Avgeropoulos (Silver Swan), Adrienne C. Moore (Etta Candy), Mozhan Marno (Dr. Cyber) and Courtenay Taylor (Dr. Poison) at the World Premiere of “Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” on Friday, October 4 at New York Comic Con. Attendees were able to attend a panel discussion with cast and filmmakers James Tucker (executive producer), Sam Liu (producer/co-director), Justin Copeland (co-director) and Mairghread Scott (screenwriter).

Fans can stream “Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” starting Saturday, October 5 and on 4k, Blu-ray and DVD starting October 22.

I’m a huge fan of Marie Avgeropoulos who plays Octavia Blake in The CW’s “The 100” and brings a richness to the dark character enriching the pain, choices and trying to survive. I’m very excited to see her in new roles as a VO actor, action, drama and (hopefully) comedy! She’s filming the final season of the 100 and juggling a couple of additional projects. She will co-star with Nicholas Cage in the upcoming “Jiu Jitsu” and Cary Elwes, Susan Sarandon, Diane Kruger, Brad Dourif & Nick Offerman in “Butterfly in the Typewriter.”
