"Tell me about the loneliness of podcasting, He-Man..."

1 min read

Alan and Rob are joined once again by friend of the podcast & Caped Wonder Europe’s own Martin Lakin to take another sneaky look under the counter at the movie stash behind the bar at Bibbo’s ‘Ace o’ Clubs’.

This time they examine Cannon’s 1987’s classic, ‘Masters of the Universe’ starring Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella, the movie based on the classic 80’s Mattel toyline of the same name.

Hear about the dramatic behind the scenes turmoil which caused the production to shut down mid shoot, why exactly the film so negatively effected Superman IV and most importantly the origins of PIGBOY!!!

Is this picture the closest we ever got to a Christopher Reeve era New Gods film? You’ll have to tune your cosmic key to the All Star Superfan frequency to find out! 

Rate and review the show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Podbean, please and thank you!
