Act 3 Podcast: The Future of the Wizarding World and Batman & Robin

Posted at 12:38 PM, Jun 15, 2020

Steven Wahl and Chandler Nunnally love movies!

It's been about a week since JK Rowling posted some controversial tweets that have sparked major backlash. This, plus some problematic issues surrounding Johnny Depp and Ezra Miller, have got Steven and Chandler wondering: what happens with the next "Fantastic Beasts" film, and do we need to take a breaking from the Wizarding World franchise for awhile? Also this week we're going back to the 1997 film "Batman & Robin," a film that was critically panned, and killed the Batman franchise for nearly 10 years. Chandler's hot take is that "Batman & Robin" isn't that bad, and might border on being good, while Steven speaks up for the rest of the world that "Batman & Robin" is a total mess and deserves its moniker as one of the worst movies ever made. Who will win this epic debate? All this and more in this exciting episode of Act 3!
