Talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Lee Herrige – Aaron Ross Powell Show
The movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe set records with their popularity. But are they any good? My feelings about the movies have always been lukewarm. They’re fun, competently made, and consistent. But none of them have wowed me, and while I’ve enjoyed every Marvel movie I’ve seen, I haven’t felt a desire to watch any of them a second time. My friend Lee Herridge disagrees and offered to come on the show to explain to me how I’ve gone wrong in evaluating the MCU. We talked about the quality of the films, the scope of the project Marvel undertook, how these movies compare to others in the genre, and were the MCU should go from here.
