For this week’s show we decided hey, live-action superhero movies get a hell of a lot of love from us here at Comic Confidential, but what about their animated counterparts? Animated superhero movies (whether Marvel, DC or any other studio) have given us some truly wonderful stories as well as countless hours of entertainment, so we’re going to celebrate some of our personal favourites and decide which movies are the best animated superhero movies of all time!

PLUS in this week’s Lightning News we discuss the announcement of J. J. Abrams as director of Star Wars Episode IX and whether moving the release date to December 2019 is a dick move from Disney. We also discuss Patty Jenkins closing a deal to direct Wonder Woman 2, our first look at David Harbour as Hellboy, Andy Muschietti’s record breaking IT movie and much, much more.

Also, every week we have our Listener Questions segment and we want YOU to get involved! Either hit us up via Facebook or Twitter, email us at or call the listener hotline below and we’ll answer your question on the show!
