Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 | 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: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in which Peter Quill finds out the father he’s spent his entire life searching for is an entire frickin’ planet. Wild times! It’s all about family in the second “Guardians, same as the first Guardians, but better or worse? Let’s dig in!

Coming next: Spider-Man: Homecoming. Send feedback no later than August 17 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com
