On the latest edition of If It Bleeds, Byrd and Trev take a look at Marvel's latest event film, Captain America: Civil War.  But first, they look at two older, more obscure Marvel comics films and discuss the days when the name "Marvel" didn't necessarily spell success to film goers.  The films in question are Captain America (1990) and Man-Thing (2005).  How do they hold up these days?  Did they ever hold up to begin with?  Listen and find out!

For their second audio commentary, Byrd and Trev take a look at the much maligned (or misunderstood if you listen to Trev) Superman III.  While many see this as a confused Richard Pryor vehicle, some still think it holds up as an enjoyable third romp for Supes.  Watch and listen with the boys as they unpack one of the strangest superhero films ever made!

The Great Allegiant Experiment

In March of 2016, Byrd and Trev underwent a daring and bold experiment in podcasting... to drop themselves smack dab into the middle of the Divergent film franchise.  They went and saw Allegiant, the latest movie in the series, without seeing the previous films, reading the books, or having even the smallest bit of passing knowledge of the plot.  Listen as they try to figure out what happened in this movie, what happened in the previous films, and what happens in the next and final film.  But be warned, these are the ramblings of madmen.
