Marvel’s Wastelanders: Doom is the fifth installment of Marvel’s incredibly popular Marvel’s Wastelanders audio saga, which is set in a version of the Old Man Logan universe — a future timeline where supervillains have killed most superheroes and divided the world into their own personal kingdoms. So far, the series has covered four different heroes, with Star-Lord, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Wolverine all receiving 10-episode series in the past.
This time, though, the focus is all on Doctor Doom, who has been imprisoned for thirty years. After freeing himself, Doom now seeks revenge on those who betrayed him on The Day The Villains Won. In order to accomplish his goals, he teams up with Valeria Richards, the daughter of Reed Richards — his most hated enemy.
The newly released series stars Dylan Baker as Doctor Doom, Danny Burstein (Hulk), Keith David (Kingpin), John Hawkes (Klaw), Kristen Johnston (She-Hulk), Elijah Jones (Johnny Claymore), Rebecca Naomi Jones (Valeria), Hamish Linklater (Sandman), Nadine Malouf (Cora), and Luke Kirby (Maximus).

Similarly to Winne the Pooh: Blood and Honey, The Mean One reimagines a classic children’s story character as a fearsome slasher villain. The titular Mean One is played by Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cameron spoke about the legendary 1995 film. According to him, DiCaprio was always at the top of his list to play Jack, but the role almost went to someone else after DiCaprio refused to read for the role.
“‘Oh, I don’t read,’” Cameron said DiCaprio told him before the director shook his hand and said, “Well, thanks for coming by.” It was then, Cameron said, that DiCaprio replied, “Wait, wait, wait, if I don’t read, I don’t get the part. Just like that?’”
Cameron went on to say that he told DiCaprio that Titanic was “a giant movie that is going to take two years of my life, and you’ll be gone doing five other things while I’m doing post-production. So I’m not going to f— it up by making the wrong decision in casting. So you’re going to read, or you’re not going to get the part.”
The director went on to say that DiCaprio did end up reading for the part, although he did joke that “every ounce of his entire being is entirely negative right up until I said, ‘Action,’ and then he turned into Jack. And Kate just lit up, and they went into this whole thing, and he played the scene. Dark clouds had opened up, a ray of sun came down and lit up Jack. I’m like, ‘All right, he’s the guy.’”

Of course, DiCaprio’s turn as Jack was what turned him from an already famous heartthrob into a superstar and would lead to countless roles for him in the future. As for Cameron, his next film, Avatar: The Way of Water, will premiere in theaters on December 16, 2022.
