HERO WORSHIP | It turns out that Jasper and co-host Ghostface Millah skirted talk of THE AVENGERS during their summer movie preview for good reason: Once they start exalting the utter awesomeness of this season’s premier blockbuster superhero epic, it’s hard for them to just shut up already. On another extended episode of Scorncast — don’t get used to it, okay? — the guys discuss their Chitauri-armada-sized expectations, celebrate a (temporary?) victory over comic-book-cinema sexism, single out a few choice Avengers performances (MARK SMASH!), and explain why Joss Whedon is the oh-so-right geek for the directing/writing job. Also: Ghostface detects an uncanny link between mind control and magic mushrooms, and Jasper casually uses the phrase “chillin’ in his pad,” which he should probably never do again. Like, ever.
