Everything Actioncast Ep 475 “Black Widow, Coronavirus, Universal Monsters, Spenser Confidential and More”
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris, and Joe talk about Taskmaster and the final Black Widow trailer, a ton of cancelations and postponements due to Coronavirus, new Universal Monster projects, the latest from Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, the new seasons of Castlevania and Altered Carbon and more.
Running for one season in 1997, Mummies Alive! followed a team of ancient warriors who come back from the dead in modern times to protect the reincarnation of a young Egyptian prince from an evil sorcerer looking to kill him and drain his lifeforce for immortality.
Universal was trying to get their classic monsters back in the spotlight in the mid-90s and in 1994 they went the “Xtreme” route with Monster Force, an animated series where a team of armored specialists battled the monsters to save the world of the far off future of 2020.
US Army Sergeant and roguish treasure hunting thief Nick Morton accidentally uncovers the tomb/prison of the evil Princess Ahmanet and has to team up with archaeologist Jenny Halsey to stop her from regaining her power and destroying the world.
For the final podcast of 2017, Chris and Joe take over while Zach is out sick to talk about some of their picks for the best and worst movies of 2017 along with some of the recent things they’ve seen like The Last Jedi and Jean Claude Van Johnson.
