42: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – From Niche to Blockbuster

It’s that time of the year when Marvel begins its rampage through the box office. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, opened in movie theaters on May 5th and is poised to build on the massive success of the first film.  Claire White and producer/guest host James Fouhey are ready to talk about this new sci-fi adventure, while Kyle takes a well deserved weekend off.  James begins by explaining the origins of this oddball team and the cycle of creative influence between the comics and the films.  Claire then breaks down how a script written by an intern, about some of Marvel’s most obscure heroes, got made in the first place.  Our hosts conclude with their thoughts on the movie, and the future of the MCU.
