This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: Doc Savage is back, and Peter Parker returns! Rodrigo buys a zoo. And if Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, who is Jason Mamoa playing in the Batman vs. Superman movie?

Jason Mamoa for Man of Steel 2?

Doc Savage #1
Writer: Chris Roberson
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
In 1933, readers were first introduced to Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze. Raised from the cradle to be the pinnacle of mental and physical perfection, Doc Savage travels the world using science and sinews to right wrongs, aid the oppressed, and liberate the innocent. With his team of able associates at their headquarters high atop the tallest building in the world, Doc Savage is tireless in his pursuit of knowledge and justice. Writer Chris Roberson brings Doc Savage from 1933 through to today. And with “Easter eggs” along the way that will help pave the future of Doc, in a story only Chris (Roberson) could tell.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
After all the fighting between Doctor Who villains these past couple of weeks, it’s time to cleanse the palate with a magic show! Two magicians step on the stage to entertain – Orko (He-Man) and Presto (Dungeons and Dragons) – but I have a feeling things aren’t going to go as planned.
Which “magician” would mess up their show the least?

    I would love to see some Martian Manhunter. Also a good movie for Jason Momoa would be nice, because he has had some bad stuff since SGA and I rather liked him in that.

    There’s another aspect to the Wonder Woman debate that you missed. Some of us are mistrustful that Zack “Sucker Punch” Snyder is going to be in charge of her first film appearance. Given his track record, I can’t expect that he will treat this type of character well. I hope I’m wrong and that he has grown as a creative artist, but Sucker Punch, where he was given a high degree of creative freedom, just plain makes me not trust him with Wonder Woman, no matter who plays her.

    Gal Gadot has the loom in my opinion. It is all in the brow. That is the strongest feature that is similar to the character design of Wonder Woman.

    I find it rather funny that we had very similar conversations about Batfleck when he was announced. “He is to old.” “He can’t Act” “Gigli and Jersey Girl”. Now we are hearing about Godot, “She has no Breasts” “She has no physique” “Fast and Furious 5 & 6”

    It remindes me of that famous line from Hamlet, “H8R’s gonna Hate.” People aren’t gonna be satisfied with anyone who isn’t EXACTLY who they want to play the role. I wanted Jennifer Lawrance for Wonder Woman and have only ever imagined myself playing Batman… Not that I can Act, but hey, it’s my fantasy..

      “H8R’s gonna Hate.”

      … “Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow
      of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: Bashed people he didn’t know on Twitter for work he hadn’t seen yet. Ugly habit.”

    I’d like to thank whichever of you chuckleheads started singing “Louie, Louie”. It’s been in my head for hours.
