Marvel's latest installment (Avengers: Infinity War) is GOING TO BE BANANAS (B-A-N-A-N-A-S). There is so much leading up to this installment (including 18 full-length feature films, and approximately 50,000 episodes of TV......that *some* of us haven't gotten around to yet!). So, needless to say, THIS IS A LOT TO PREPARE FOR. Fret not BB's, for we are here to help!

We are joined on todays episode by our very dear friend (and first repeat guest!) Dr. Andrew Friedenthal, who puts his comic book specialties to work as we recount the MCU and prepare for this madness.

We've got opinions, deep feelings, recaps, rankings & predictions for the future! Catch it all before you see the movie (or after, if you're confused). It'll be out in theaters on April 27th!

PLUGS:

Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale was an amazing memoir published in 1985.

FAKE NEWS!

Just kidding, The Handmaid's Tale was NOT a memoir, but has the horrifying potential to become such. We love that this book covers topics pertinent to today's society and acts as a reminder of what could be if we let hatred win. The story has been adapted for the screen by HULU and sesason two is just around the corner!

Check out our episode for a recap of Season 1 (and feelings), and season 2 predictions!

We are SO excited to see where this show goes next (and also horrified).

ALSO, we're deeply sad that Elizabeth Moss is a Scientologist. More deets within!

PLUGS:

The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

Today on Beauty and the Bitch, Mic and Morgan take a deep dive into the amazing (and explicit) world of fan-fiction by exploring the latest Potter-craze: Voldemort: Origins of the Heir.

This 52 minute long fan-film brings us the history of Tom Marvolo Riddle (I AM LORD VOLDEMORT), which we DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WE WERE MISSING IN OUR LIVES!

We explore some other amazing Potter fan-fiction out there, discuss our anger with calling "no-homo" on Dumbledore, talk about what we're missing in the Potterverse, and examine what keeps bringing us back to this world: SPOILER, it's because it's amazing and we need it like heroine.

SO, follow along with us, and be sure to catch Origins of the Heir on YouTube! (FOR FREE Y'ALL!)

Neil Gaiman is a master of words and we love and respect his every move here at Beauty and the Bitch. That being said, we did of course make room to TEAR THIS HOUSE TO THE GROUND. 

American Gods is (in our opinion) one of the best books (EVER) and a Gaiman classic. It has been turned into a STARZ adaptation and is set to launch Season Two in April 2018. HOWEVER, there is too much drama not to discuss! Gaiman is right in the middle; people are leaving; show runners are changing; story lines are up in the air; WE ARE HAVING FEELINGS.

Additionally, we have the Scoop on all the other Gaiman projects in the works. Basically we're a gay man on Gaiman and a woman with feelings about John Hamm in his powder blue suit. 

Come share the love BB's, it's good for the soul <3

PLUGS:

 Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (So lit, going to be an adaptation starring Kerry Washington & Reese Witherspoon)

The Sandman Comics by Neil Gaiman (AMAZING!!!)
