Aaron Adams & Jim Hill share e-mails from two listeners who actually got to see “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark” during its Broadway run. Then Aaron uses his audio expertise to demonstrate how Marvel Studios used the removal-of-sound as a way to add tension to the battle scenes in “Avengers: Endgame”


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why the U.S. & China’s current tiff over tariffs could keep “Avengers: Endgame” from overtaking James Cameron’s “Avatar” as the all-time worldwide box office champ

What’s significant about “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” getting a seventh season renewal just before Channing Dungey stepped down at the president of ABC Entertainment back in November of last year

How the “Black Widow” movie may be used to explain why Natasha appeared to have changed sides in “Captain America: Civil War”

Why theater owners had to post signs in their ticket booths back in December of 2017 to warn would-be moviegoers about a particular scene in “Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi”

All of the individual bits of audio that Aaron had to assemble in order to recreate the sound of Tony Stark’s suit-in-a-suitcase from 2010’s “Iron-Man II”
