Before Steve Rogers could do this all day, before Batman asked Superman if he could bleed, before Venom got weirdly obsessed with the pancreas, there was a superhero boom in the movies of the late 80s and early 90s that paved the way for the golden age we are presently experiencing. This panel event recorded at the Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019.

 Yesterday • The Film Board | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:21

There have been some great British music biopics in the last year. They tend to garner some criticism for the way that history is manipulated to make movie drama. Also each one handles the original artists’ music in different ways.

That’s one way to ditch the criticism: go full fiction!
