Taking It Down 126: MCU Casting Ideas, Adam Sandler as a Great, and the Movie Nope

Taking It Down is the Alabama Take's pop culture discussion podcast. Be sure to use the timestamps for the segments.

Blaine, Adam, and Donovan award the Listener of the Week, who takes the team into being international (2:30)! Then the group has very specific ideas on how to cast Wolverine in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe adventures — and it doesn’t involve Taron Egerton (3:54).

Natalie joins the crew and the four hosts discuss the recent piece by head writer Patrick Akers which posits that Adam Sandler is one of the greatest (8:31). Is he? And what’s his best performance? And here’s the video referenced in the talk of Sandler’s very early MTV days, pre-SNL.

After a break, Donovan and Blaine dissect the many threads of the new Jordan Peele film Nope (32:50). The podcast episode of Where’s the Line? mentioned in that discussion can be found here on Apple and here in Spotify.

As with every episode, listeners can find it in any podcast app, including Spotify, or listen with the embedded player above.
