The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are getting smaller as this week they get a jump on "any-Man" with pitches focusing on shrinking stories or incredibly tiny worlds. Beforehand, they have much to discuss with the response to the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" sequel, and this week's game relates, a Vanity Project with "Avengers" writer/director, Joss Whedon.
Also available on iTunes.
-The guys come up with the next "National Treasure" premise.
-The firestorm behind "Avengers" and feminism is justified and also pre-existing. Why don't we have a Black Widow movie already?
-"It Follows" creeps Nate out but bores Ben.
-Nate says "Age of Adeline" is surprisingly decent; Ben says "Strange Magic" is surprisingly delightful. Who knew?
-This Week's Pitch -- Incredible Shrinking Stories!
-Nate pitches a world where the rich hire immigrant laborers to shrink down to tiny sizes to scrub out their internal organs to stay healthy.
-Ben pitches tiny people nudging you onto your fate's path, and a serial killer who shrinks down to kill.
-This Week's Game -- Vanity Project!
-The guys come up with movie and TV options for Joss Whedon now that he's leaving "The Avengers" franchise.
