  1. Fantastic interview, Ej. I always look forward when one of your podcasts come up, especially with a Defender. Hopefully you can get Krysten on too sometime.

    And yeah, I’m a big nerd too. Loved Alias, and all the big Daredevil run’s, and can’t wait for Defenders, Luke Cage, Daredevil vs Punisher.

    Thanks for the podcasts.

  2. EJ- you’re doing a great job. Loved Jessica Jones, and Mike as Luke Cage. This guy is uber-confident, and I think that’s why he’s so wonderful in the role. Can’t wait for Sept. 30!!
