Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we chat about the Final Fantasy XV announcements (including a release date, demo and anime series), the Rogue One trailer and the Creators for Creators comics grant. We recorded back on Saturday, but there is a brief catch up on stuff from during the week like the Doctor Strange trailer and the Spider-Man film title.

This week's main talking point is essentially a review of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. There are full spoilers, so if you want to avoid them stop listening after 20 minutes! It's a pre-recorded discussion of the film between Adam and our comics review contributor Kit, a fellow DC fan. Unfortunately the sound quality on Kit's end could be better, so it sounds a bit like he is underwater. But should still be good! 
What did you think of BvS? You can get in touch to let us know or about any of the other things we talked about this week through Facebook or on Twitter @lost_lighthouse, email us at thelostlighthouse@live.co.uk or sound off in the 'leave a reply' box at the bottom of the podcast page on the website.

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we chat Batman Vs Superman's success despite being very poorly received critically (we'll be talking about it ourselves next episode), Fear the Walking Dead and Microsoft's machine learning AI chatbot Tay Tweets AKA the Skynet we apparently deserve, while Gary brings on his own ruination through cat litter tray placement and Adam reminds himself that he doesn't like Man of Steel, even when he tries desperately to keep an open mind about BvS when he sees it next week.

Our main talking point this week was Daredevil Season 2. We get into full spoilers about it, so if you haven't finished it yet then stop listen after 20 minutes! We chat about what we liked and what we didn't like, with some great comments from some listeners on what they thought too!
