The Weekly Planet

We finally settle a long standing debate! Is Rey a Mary Sue? Well, we don't really settle it, we just talk about it for a bit as well as other potential Mary Sue's in the Star Wars Universe and other franchises.

Plus we talk a bold (and potential stolen from Mason!) Deadpool marketing campaign, new Batman V Superman footage, Amber Herd Aquaman casting, Ten Cloverfield Lane, Oscar nominations, the shortlist for Han Solo and the tragic loss of two artistic greats!
