You know, you hear about superhero movie fatigue, but nobody ever gets superhero movie podcast fatigue, right? Impossible!
So I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Superheroes Every Day podcast, a weekly endeavour discussing pivotal moments in superhero movie history (mostly the terrible ones).
The first episode is about Man of Steel, the 2013 Zack Snyder / Henry Cavill reboot which landed on our planet and made everything worse. My guest is Ryan Steans from the Signal Watch podcast, and we have a funny and insightful discussion about how hot Henry Cavill is, how much Krypton sucks, why we shouldn’t have the concept of “cool” anymore, and why people are not actually afraid of things that we don’t understand.
For your listening convenience, the episodes are split into three parts according to Syd Field’s three-act structure, and released on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The podcast is currently available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Audible, Overcast, Stitcher, iHeart Radio and YouTube!
If you’re a fan of Superheroes Every Day or anything else that I’ve done, then you will love this podcast; it is high-energy Danny Horn comedy and I’m very excited about it.
Here’s Man of Steel act 2:
And Act 3:
Coming up next week: X-Men: First Class!
Next on the podcast:
Episode 2 – X-Men: First Class!

I hope this doesn’t cut into this blog, time wise.

Unfortunately, it already has; that’s why the regular posts stopped for the last little while. But now that it’s launched and I know what I’m doing, I should be able to get back to writing posts.
Very exciting indeed! Already left a 5-star review but now I need to listen to it!

Hooray, thank you!
“For your listening convenience, the episodes are split into three parts according to Syd Field’s three-act structure, and released on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.” That’s great! You’ll save the cat Monday morning, meet mentors and allies Wednesday afternoon, and approach the inmost cave when all is lost, Friday at lunchtime! Welcome back to a schedule, I hope!
Krypton had dragons?
I’ve never seen this movie probably because I read those negative reviews.
I loved the observation that Snyder took white crystal and made it charcoal. Though he was talking about the set design, it’s a pretty apt summation of the way I feel about every Superman movie I’ve seen in comparison to the original.
The idea of figuring out what would look cool in a trailer and then making a movie around it echoes the Silver Age tendency to draw an eye-catching cover and then writing a comic based on it.
I really enjoyed the podcast though I’m bitter about having to watch MoS again to get the most out of it. But at least there was Henry Cavill. And Christopher Meloni, who definitely belongs in the Hot Chris Squad with Hemsworth, Evans, and Pine. And maybe Pratt if I’m feeling generous.
