FadCast Episode 48

Episode Summary:

The discussion on this episode of the FadCast is all about the film fads and fan hatred when it comes to casting some of their favorite iconic characters. With the consistent hatred of Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” we address many other iconic casting decisions where the fans said no at first but ate their words after they saw the respective film in question. Film Fad Writer Mike joins us to discuss these topics as well and to participate in a quiz from Pooya about casting choices that almost happened. We also give a quick rundown of our recent visit to the Wizard World convention and highlight the pros and cons of the event.

After following one of his favorite blogs for a long time, he approached the site's Editor about writing and they reluctantly gave him a shot. He later became their Senior Writer which led to a variety of other projects, radio show appearances, features, and high profile celebrity interviews. Despite his success with blogging, he still wanted more so in order to expand his creative addiction, he merged his IT skills and blogging know-how to create which has continued to grow into a creative Mecca of pop-culture fun and integrity.   [email protected]    Film Fad
