Matt and Adam discuss how fans are demanding the continuation of massive franchises.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we’re talking about the rise of fan campaigns for blockbuster franchises like #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, #ContinueTheMonsterverse, and #RestoreBatfleck. We discuss the history of these fan campaigns, how they’ve graduated from low-rated TV series to massive studio tentpoles, what that says about fandom, teaser culture, the influence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more. We then finish up with Recently Watched.
For those unfamiliar with the show, The Collider Podcast has been running since 2012 (back when it was called The Collision) with hosts Matt Goldberg and Adam Chitwood talking about the newest movies and major news affecting the entertainment industry. While the podcast has morphed over the years as we’ve bounced between different platforms and site owners, we’re now happy to have the podcast on Megaphone, which means you can find The Collider Podcast wherever you get your podcasts. New episodes typically post every Monday or Tuesday with the occasional bonus episode if there’s more than one topic to talk about in a given week.
