After a close call with evil robots, our hosts dive into a film that was at or near their top of their 5 favorite Marvel films revealed in episode 200 – Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). They will look at the film’s production and release and share both the critics and their thoughts on the film. After the film, the Cap coverage will continue with a look at the latest playset released for the Disney Infinity video game, Marvel Battlegrounds. Tracey and Scott will let you know if it’s a prizefighter or just a big Palooka. All that, plus a call over to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.
Welcome to Disney, Indiana!

Many thanks to Ron Collins of 520 Cherry Tree Lane here in town for this picture. Here is Ron’s description: This is the Bronson Caves. It is also know as the Batcave. This is where the Batmobile drove out of on the T.V. show. Imagine lots more trees and bushes and a guard rail right in front of the cave.
