Welcome to The B-Side, a podcast from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies featuring established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones. So strap in and listen close as we dive into the big swings and big misses from some of the most well-known names in the business.
Specifically, we pick out the original six Avengers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and talk about some of their B-Sides. This one’s a two-parter so get ready! We start with Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Evans, discussing the B-Sides The Singing Detective, The Perfect Score, and The Nanny Diaries. Next week we’ll tackle Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner, plus our reactions to Avengers: Endgame and what we hope to see from these stars following each of their elongated stints in superhero-land. Also, stay tuned to The Film Stage Show for their full, spoiler-filled discussion of Endgame, coming next week.
