Avengers: Age of Ultron | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Up next: Avengers: Age of Ultron, the second and the worst Avengers movie in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Does that mean it’s a bad movie? No! Problematic? Sure! Josh and Kevin chew on one of the most divisive films in the whole MCU.

Coming next: Ant-Man. Send your feedback for the recap by no later than July 6 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com.
