What’s this? Another new episode of The Flickcast for your listening pleasure? That’s right.
On this week’s episode, Chris and Joe take it to another level and really seem angry about a lot of stuff, which isn’t like them. Still, anger leads to the Dark Side, so we should probably keep an eye on them. In the meantime, some of these anger-provoking topics include Jared Leto’s joker, Frank Miller’s new Batman, what kind of a girl Black Widow is and a whole lot more.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the movie Ex Machina, written and directed by Alex Garland, and Joe’s pick of the new album by Big Wreck called “Ghosts.”

Sadly, we haven’t hit these milestones, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still a few we can’t hit. Luckily, super fan Michael Hobson over at Tremulant Design put together this full infographic on when certain sci-fi milestones are set to hit, so that we have the fully skinny on when to expect these fictional dates.
In his studies, Hobson found out a few fun details some may not be aware of. Such as the fact that the events in Avatar take place between Alien and Aliens. Or that we can expect some pretty violent reality TV to hit the airwaves in less than a decade.
So take a look at the full graphic after the jump, and bone up for when we decide to send nukes into the sun to jump start it, or when art is banned and we live in a totalitarian society. Never a bad idea to be prepared for such events.
