It’s an all-new episode of The Flickcast for your listening pleasure. Seven new ones in a row. It really, really must be some kind of record.
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss a bunch of new and recurring topics. What are these new and recurring topics you may ask? Well, we could tell you, but where’s the fun in that? You can probably guess what one of them is, at least, if you look really closely at the above photo.
Don’t worry if you don’t know what’s happening in advance. It’s ok. Rest assured, this episode is a good one.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of director David Ayer’s End of Watch and Joe’s pick of renowned comic book writer Dan Slott. We’ve even got a special guest pick for you too.

We’ve had two Iron Man movies (with a third dropping very soon), one Captain America movie and one Thor movie. So far.
And now, of course, we’ve got a sequel to Thor to look forward to. Said sequel, titled Thor: The Dark World, doesn’t arrive until near the end of this year.
However, the first trailer for it has dropped today. And folks, it looks pretty darn good.
Alan Taylor takes over from Kenneth Branagh this time around with a cast that includes pretty much everyone from the first one such as Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo and Christopher Eccleston.
Check out the trailer after the break. Let us know how you like it.

Lots of info coming out of Comic-Con in San Diego this week. Of course, we’re pretty interested in anything where comics and movies converge so when Marvel makes some announcements, we’re gonna let you know.
As we predicted yesterday, Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed August 1, 2014 as the release date for the next super-hero ensemble: Guardians Of The Galaxy. But wait, there’s more.
Edgar Wright said he and Joe Cornish have written Ant-Man and Wright shot a test that he showed to the crowd. Apparently, people loved it and Wright’s description of the tiny hero who “kicks ass one inch at a time.”
But there’s even more. Captain America: The Winter Solder, the confirmed title of the sequel, is set for an April 4, 2014 release. Alan Taylor is set to direct Thor: The Dark World and it will arrive on November 8, 2013.
Also, as we told you before, Shane Black is still hard at work on Iron Man 3 and working towards its release date of May 3, 2013. They also showed footage from the movie which included Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and Guy Pearce as an as yet unknown bad guy.
How’s that for a whirlwind of announcements? Anyone else need a minute?
As if we didn’t get enough amazingness in the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, the folks at the network feel like they need to bring in a few surprises before they start shooting season two, as they have already announced a few special directors tasked with taking on the new episodes.
It looks like director Neil Marshall, who’s no stranger to armor and action from directing Doomsday, will be taking on an episode or two of season 2. From Deadline:
Feature director Neil Marshall (The Descent) is set to direct an episode from the second season of HBO’s fantasy seriesGame of Thrones. This marks the TV debut of Marshall, who a huge fan of the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s books.
Other directors tapped for Season 2 of Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones include top TV helmers Alan Taylor, who worked on the series’ freshman season, and David Nutter as well as Alik Sakharov and David Petrarca (Boardwalk Empire).
There is still no word on what stories from R.R. Martin’s Song of Fire & Ice will be adapted for this season, but you can certainly expect to see some of your favorite actors (mostly just Dinklage) return for the next batch of episodes.
