Now that the guys have absorbed the cataclysmic events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they're ready to sit back and talk about how this will affect the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How is this going to change Agents of SHIELD? What's going to be different in the Marvel movies and TV shows from now on? Where do they go from here? The guys get super-spoilery on everything Marvel has done, make predictions about the films and TV shows already in development, talk about those projects still in the rumor stage, and then give their own suggestions for what properties they'd like to see join the MCU! Plus: what other studios are trying to duplicate the MCU's success?

And what's cool this week? Kenny has got his hands on the complete series of Reboot on DVD, while Blake's ears have been immersed in the new album Music Inspired By the Life and Times of Scrooge.

Blake is determined not to get into spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which actually kind of makes it a miracle that this podcast is more than 20 seconds long. But he gives you brief impressions and his recommendation for the movie.

And what's cool this week? Nobody is more surprised than us that Blake is into Superior Spider-Man #30. Nobody at all should be surprised that Blake was into Rifftrax's Total Riff Off on the National Geographic Channel.
