fadcast 129 movie rumor vs movie reality when do you believe the hype

Episode Summary:

This week on the FadCast, we sort through some of the most recent movie rumors, discerning fact from fiction, as we try to find out when to believe the "hype." From the down-trodden "The Batman" rumors that Matt Reeves ("War For The Planet Of The Apes") is no longer in talks for director and Ben Affleck's impending departure from the DCEU to "Deadpool 2" rumors pinning former Bond Pierce Brosnan as future-torn Cable. We try to get to the bottom of when the "hype" is logically worth believing and when it's just a work of fan fiction. We also get totally radical as we read a scene from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" in honor of the recently rekindled "Bill and Ted 3" project.

Before that, we briefly discuss how KEANU REEVES SAYS “BILL & TED 3” IS HAPPENING, AND THE PLOT IS OUT OF THIS WORLD and KEVIN SMITH IS BEHIND A NEW “SPAWN” SPINOFF PROJECT FOR BBC AMERICA for our SPEED ROUND!
