On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate film critic Dana Stevens and Matt Singer of ScreenCrush discuss Avengers: Age of Ultron. How does writer-director Joss Whedon’s last Marvel Studios venture measure up? What is the film’s role in the ever-expanding Marvel canon? Can we keep track of all the new characters who get introduced?
Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
