Welcome to the fourth installment of a Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents mini-series… Mike and Rachel vs Marvel Phase 3! The premise of this series was simple; Mike and his wife Rachel watch one of the Marvel Phase 3 films and then talk/argue about them. This is all a part of the Fortress’ desire to catch a few new listeners based on the upcoming release of Avengers: Infinity War.
At least that was the theory. Then real life got in the way. But the recordings are still there, so I can release them whenever.
Like when a new Spider-Man film comes out.
This time out Mike and Rachel discuss Spider-Man: Homecoming and as opposed to the previous episode where things were wrapped up in a little over twenty minutes this one run well over an hour.
Apparently the Baileys had some things to say about this one.
One of those things was Iron Man’s involvement in the movie. Mike has a very particular opinion about this and goes into detail about why he didn’t have a problem with it. Rachel liked the movie but had some quibbles and most of those issues had to do with Peter jet setting around the world with little to no repercussions. There’s also a discussion about how the movie Spider-Man came to be compared to his comic book roots and why certain problems people had with this film don’t matter in the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Baileys also gush over Michael Keaton’s performance. Because it was awesome.
And there is a discussion involving self-love towards the end. Heads up.
