Hosted by Selina Wilken, Pamela Gocobachi

November 7, 2016

Hype Podcast tackles Doctor Strange, Johnny Depp joining Fantastic Beasts, the new Wonder Woman trailer, BBC’s Class and much more.

This week Selina kept her promise and watched the pilot of Class; both Pam and Selina review Doctor Strange and react to the even stranger news about Johnny Depp joining Fantastic Beasts… yeah. We’re stumped, too.

Clarification: We said in the episode that Depp and Heard went to court; the case was in fact settled out of court.

How We Hype:
– It’s all Doctor Strange this week, as we share our mixed reactions to Marvel’s latest offering.

Johnny Depp as Grindelwald? WTF?!
– We’ve also got the location for the Fantastic Beasts sequel, and early reviews of the first movie
– The new Wonder Woman trailer is EPIC.
– First look images of Beauty and the Beast reveal Beast’s big, er, horns. Plus, we’ve got news about Belle’s backstory
– Disney is developing a live-action Snow White, obviously
The Dark Tower has been delayed until summer 2017
– Rami Malek replaces Sacha Baron Cohen in Freddie Mercury biopic
The Flash movie loses its second (!) director
– Pam loves the trailer for Fuller House season 2
– Cormoran Strike TV series adds Holliday Grainger
– The Hamilton mixtape !!!

TV Show of the Week:
– Selina checked out the pilot of BBC’s Doctor Who spinoff Class, and loved it
– Yes, Pam is still watching The Walking Dead.

In Listener Feedback we tackle American remakes of foreign shows, The Crown reactions and our fabulous new app.
