In part 2 of episode 33, we are back at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles to give you all the great info and laugh about what came out of the DC side of this years San Diego Comic-Con! Arrow is up first and along with a new trailer, we talk about the additions of Rick Gonzalez, and better roles for Madison McLaughlin and Echo Kellum. Season 3 of the Flash looks to be the best of the bunch and we cover the trailer, Keiynan Lonsdale's new look, and some controversy surrounding Grant Gustin, unrelated to Flashpoint. Legends Of Tomorrow looks to only be better with the addition of not only the Legion Of Doom, but the Justice Society, plus we talk about how Katie Cassidy will be everywhere. The crazy train on Gotham only gets weirder with some new quotes from Ben Mckenzie, and we're still concerned about Powerless. Trailers for Wonder Woman, Justice League and Suicide Squad round out the visual treats for DC at Comic-Con and we agree on at least 2 of them (we're looking at you, Zach Snyder.) Lastly, some hot news on Kiersey Clemons' role in the Flash movie and of course, some disagreement over his costume. Get ready, it's everything DC, from your Trusty Sidekicks, on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network!

It's the first of a 2-part, episode 33 run down of everything that was revealed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and a whole lot more as the Trusty Sidekicks bring this one to you straight from Meltdown Comics! Marvel kicks off the big news as Oscar winner Brie Larson joins the fold, we know the roles being played by Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira in Black Panther and the latest Dr. Strange trailer is upon us! Kurt Russell's full role in Guardians Of The Galaxy has been revealed and we give you the lowdown on the footage shown from that and Spider-Man: Homecoming, including info on who Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier and Jacob Batalon are playing. We go deep into discussing Thor: Ragnarok and talk about the future of the Hulk in the MU. Gambit is still coming and still has Channing Tatum and Doug Liman attached and we let you know what we think of a solo Black Widow movie. On the TV side of things, Gabriel Luna is coming to Agents Of Shield and we love the role he's playing, but will it transfer to Netflix? And speaking of Netflix, we break down trailers from Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the Defenders. We end the episode by covering the new shows that are coming, including Legion on FX, and an as yet untitled show coming to Fox, helmed by Matt Nix. Of course, multiple times in here, we almost have to stop the show from laughing too hard. See for yourself, it's the Trusty Sidekicks, on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network!

Major deals, major injuries and major laughs on episode 32 of The Trusty Sidekick Podcast! CW is in high gear, locking down a major deal with Netflix, and there's huge news regarding John Barrowman's Merlin character in the Arrowverse. James Bamford is directing more Arrow, Stephen Amell's nemesis from the WWE is coming on board, Echo Kellum's role is being expanded, and we have a lot to say about all of it. The Flash is going to get more Kevin Smith and we talk about other shows across on the CW he wants in on. We also cover other DC film and TV, as we laugh about who the Ben Affleck Batman reminds us of from the Marvel Universe, discuss the 3 women up for the lead in the Flash movie and hope Vanessa Hudgens is a Krysten Ritter like surprise in Powerless. Over at Marvel, Spider-Man keeps adding cool actors, is a year away from release and other than Tom Holland and Michael Keaton, every new actor is a mystery, Thor: Ragnarok is possibly going to save the trilogy, we get into the possibility of Agents Of Shield introducing Ghost Rider and we learn more about how Wong, played by Benedict Wong in Dr. Strange, is not going to be much like the comics (thank the universe - and concerns of whitewashing.) Popped hamstrings, our first sponsor, and the last episode before we get to record together again, it's the Trusty Sidekicks, on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network!
