On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, with Tom Cruise jetting the skies again in Top Gun: Maverick, we decided it was a grand time to revisit the concept of the movie star: what defines the term, and if the movie star era effectually coming to an end. Stars like Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Tom Hanks, The Rock, Denzel Washington, etc. have reigned for decades, but times have changed. In a mass content world, can they still exist? 

Also on this episode, Movie Innuendo returns, our film and TV discussion revolves around Daredevil's return, Stan Lee's likeness being used for decades to come, and TikTok rivaling Netflix for content. Also, reviews of The Watcher and Men, plus much more!
