Most Craved Takes on Midnight Game Launches, Peanuts and X-Men: Apocalypse

We’ve got an eclectic assortment of entertainment news from this past week to discuss on the latest episode of Most Craved

First up, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse has reportedly started looking at talent to play younger versions of Cyclops and Phoenix. Elle Fanning (Maleficent), Chloe Grace Moretz (The Equalizer) and Hailee Steinfeld (the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2) are all said to be up for the Jean Grey role while Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar), Ben Hardy (“EastEnders”) and Charlie Rowe (“Red Band Society”) are all in the running to play Scott Summers.

Next up, we chat about the new trailer for The Peanuts Movie (check it out for yourself right here) and argue about whether or not it will capture the heart of the iconic Charles Schulz comic strip.

Finally, we take a non-specific look at the way video games are released and wonder whether or not midnight launches are ultimately hurting the gaming community’s most devoted fans.

This week’s hosts include Jenna Busch of Legion of Leia, William Bibbiani of CraveOnline and our own Silas Lesnick. Check out the entire episode in the player at the top of this page!
