Christianity Today’s Jessica Gibson joins Wade and Kevin for a review of one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year so far: Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. They discuss the film on its own merits, then consider what it represents for the superhero genre as a whole. Then Kevin sits down for an interview with Rodrigo Garcia, the writer and director of the acclaimed new film about Jesus’ wilderness temptation, Last Days in the Desert.
