Welcome film fans to Episode 70 of the Back Lot 605 Podcast! Each week “The Premier South Dakota Movie Podcast” discusses the latest movie news, box office results, and upcoming releases. This weekend sees the release of Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel, and based on the comic book of the same name. We figured it would be apt to discuss our favorite comic book movies that are not based on a major Marvel or DC property. This includes hit films such as The Crow, 300, Sin City, and The Mask. What are some of your favorite non-DC or Marvel comic book movies?
