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. After discussing the B-Sides of Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Evans on Part I, this week we turn to Mark Ruffalo (The Brothers Bloom), Jeremy Renner (Kill the Messenger), and Chris Hemsworth (In the Heart of the Sea and a dash of Rush). We also discuss Avengers: Endgame and what we hope to see from these stars following each of their elongated stints in superhero-land.
