Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #11: Off the Page — X-Men (2000)


Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. And their love of comics isn’t limited to the page. In Off the Page, Greg and Nick will examine pieces of comic book media outside the comics themselves.

In this edition, the Fanboys are joined by Tim Capel to discuss Bryan Singer’s all-important 2000 film “X-Men.” The guys discuss whether the film deserves more credit than “Blade” in kicking off the superhero film fever of the modern era, the often bizarre scripts for X-Men films that began in the mid-’80s, Stan Lee’s L.A. exploits, the FINAL DELETION, and more.
