Surprise, surprise – we’re talking about the latest MCU movie.
A decade of build-up has brought us to Avengers: Infinity War, the two-part opus of Marvel’s (Disney’s) Cinematic Universe. In this episode, your hosts reflect on Part 1. Of course, there are a ton of spoilers about the movie itself. But here is a bonus spoiler about the episode as a whole: Jackson and Daniel actually agree on something for once.
