On this week's episode of the Empire Podcast, we're virtually visited by the true Nerb Emperor, Joe Manganiello, who tells Chris Hewitt all about his new movie, Archenemy, gives us a little tour of his geeked-out office, talks Dungeons & Dragons, and his plans to play Galactus. OK, the last one was maybe not so serious.
Chris also chats this week with Shaka King, director of the hard-hitting drama, Judas And The Black Messiah, which tells the story of the murder of Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), and his betrayal at the hands of fellow Panther, William O'Neal (Lakeith Stanfield).
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara and James Dyer for a quick burst of The Three Fact Structure, a chat about the best examples of recasting in movies, discussion of the week's movie news including the BAFTA nominations, and reviews of Judas And The Black Messiah, the Russo Brothers' first post-MCU movie, Cherry, and Yes Day. It's all happening, folks!
